iT.i~.lni'. 4 ,/• % S - V t Bancroft May Join Southern Minny Ball Loop After All According to the latest available information on the subject—> •Will Bancroft "have- an entry in the Southern Minnesota Baseball League or not? — it is probable the north Kossuth town will be playing in Iho loop this summer. * , „ A member of thr baseball board at Bancroft, Bob Menke, announced after a meeting of baseball enthusiasts at Bancroft Friday night that "we'll field a teaifi in the Southern Minny loop contrary to an earlier announcement." The subject has been hot and cold for several weeks. Menke added "we'll field a team strong enough to win the championship of the league", when asked if Bancroft would meet any problems in putting together a strong enough team to compete in the Southern Minny loop. If the rest of the league accepts the Bancroft entry, the club will join Fairmont, Esther- Ville and Mason City in the tvestern division and Albert Lea, Austin, Bochester and Winona in the eastern division of the loop. The Bancroft team, which will be known as the Chicks, will be managed by Dick Anderson, who formerly played ball in the tough Iowa State and Southern ' Minny leagues. He is from Austin and is attending school at Mankato State;at the present. According to an announcement from league officials, two schedules, one of a seven team loop and another for an eight team league, have been drawn up. If Bancroft becomes a member of the loop, the eight teams will bo all set to go within a few weeks. The schedule for each team would include 32 games, 16 at home and 16 on the road. Another league meeting is slated tonight (Thursday) at Albert Lea at which time a final decision from all eight teams might be announced. 8-Algona (la.) Uppef Dei Meltttt Thursday, April 23, 1959 .

DCS LOW WATER LEVELS — Fishermen'who seek the'ir catorial thrills in MinnesdW this year catt expect to find low water levels in that state, as'Well as lowo. Such was the c&se last year when Minnesota celebrated its Centennial year with some of the finest fishing in history, Low water usually tends to concentrate the fish and make them readily available to the angler and better ' fishing is enjoyed in these years of low water, 1958 was a low water year. 'Last year the spring started out with an early break up and early spawning of northerns, walleyes and suckers. After this period of spawning there followed a long siege of cool weather which delayed subsequent development of fish food organisms on which these spring spawners rely fpr food. . The situation jeft the walleye and northern particularly hungry with the opening of the fishing season in thu middle of May, It will profit ihe^ fisherman who plans early fishing at the season's opening to keep an eye on the weather, temperatures, etci ... If a similar situation exists weatherwise this year, then he can expect another great fishing start. * * » NORTHERN PROBLEM — .' It is well known that the northern pike is the only Minnesota fish which will not .spawn in a lake. He must go up the stream to his marshland spawning grounds. Continued , low, water levels make it difficult 'or the northern to navigate these streams which are too* low or have dried > up. Any mature northern will attempt to -return to his spawning, area every year as long as he lives, but the bulk of'the fish in any spawning run are medium size fish 'ranging from two to,four years,in age. • • * » • : , * F ' ' The large northern , pike finds it difficult to negotiate the streams and this is particularly true in a year of-low water-levels. Therefore it is true ,that t , the medium sized fish from two to four years in age is the important northern in any lake' for,,reproduction purposes. It is also true that -the n^edium sized fish is a better predator because JjQ 8% lb. bass caught by Horace Clapsaddle on recent fishing trip; to Mountain Home, •_, Arka with Maurice Bartholomew', caught it on -a • Ddll lly. ., • -'. -' -i rf ;He' high Emmetsburg weeks*; in about BUS •Emery Penry of Elliott recently retired after' 31 years as an' Ellott School System school bus .mechanic and driver.

Females of this group will produce 20,000 to 30,000 eggs each year, while the bigger female northern will produce up to 70,000 eggs. The bigger female 1 finds it difficult because of her size to return .to th,e spawning area especially when low,water levels exist. The smaller more numerous northerns have the best chance to make the spawning run.
