Lake level to be controlled --THE 1 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - An official of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says Swan Lake in Nicollet County has been designated as a wa- terfowl management lake be- cause it "is one of the very im- portant hunting lakes in south- ern Minnesota." ' David Vesall, assistant game and fish director, said Monday the waterfowl designation al- lows the DNR to control the level of the lake. He said the DNR plans to temporarily low- er the level of the lake to allow vegatation to grow and would raise the water back to a con- trolled level again. Versall and other officials of the DNR met with the Gover- nor's Task Force on Power Plant Siting to explain the de- partment's position on designa- tion of the Jake. Swan Lake is one of seven sites proposed for development by Northern States Power Co. of a 1,600-megawalt fossil burn- ing power plant. Vesailsaid he thought raising the level of the lake to accom- modate the proposed power plant would have an adverse affect on waterfowl. The DNR declared Swan I^ke as a Wa- terfowl Management area in July. ea*. -Afcfeu- 0 Lovebirds, keep Johnny out of the house tonight By Abigail Van Buren ic \m M CMOM Tinw-N. v. mm mt., IK.I . DEAR ABBY: Ralph and I have been married for two ' years, and we are still very much in love, but here's our I problem: Ralph is "scheduling" what used to be our most i beautiful and romantic moments, and I don't like it. He says, "No romance until after Johnny Carson." : Abby, sometimes I don't want to stay up that late, ; because I have to be up at 6 a. m. sharp every day, but Ralph stays up to watch the whole show no matter who's : on. : I think he's being selfish, and he thinks Tm being stubborn. I'd like your opinion. And in case you think this '. is a gag, I'm signing my full name, but please don't use it. : Sign me ... SLEEPY TME GAL IN MPLS. DEAR GAL: If your husband Isn't turned ON until : Carson is turned off, you ne«d more help than I can give '· yon In · letter. I'm afraid the honeymoon is over when the boob beside you Ignores yon for the tube. ; DEAR ABBY: As a supervisor in a typing pool, I have · consistently informed my girls that there is no such word · as "reoccur," and the word should be "recur." Now, to my | borror, I find that you have used the word "reoccurring" in ; your column, and since you are an expert, I feel that there ', must be some basis for using the word, or you wouldn't r have printed it in your column. ; Please restore my faith in you, and inform your read- ': era where we can find the word "reoccur." It does not '· appear in my copy o£ the American College Dictionary. : Sincerely, MYRNA W COLUMBUS 1 DEAR MYRNA: You will find the word "reoccur" on ! p««e 1«3 of Tbe New Webster's Third International [una- · bridged] Dictionary. It's between "reoccnpy" and "reoccur- i rence." I make my share of reoccurring errors, hnt this : (n't one of them. ( I JDEAR ABBY: I do not drive a car, so I do a lot of ' -waking. My problem is that I have been threatened, fright- : eced, and nearly bitten by dogs. How does one defend · hknself against dogs without appearing ridiculous? I can't always carry a cane. Besides I've been told that · when a dog sees a cane, foe knows it's a weapon, and the i carrier practically invites attack. I know there are laws where I reside, stating that dogs must be on a leash, but nevertheless I see plenty of dogs : loose, and worse yet, they see me. Please help me. AFRAID OF DOGS DEAR AFRAID: Win yon take a tip from a veteran mall carrier who has picked many a boae with a dog? He ·ay the government provides each mall carrier with a can of "spny," which is an animal repellent. AUo, instead of t cane, carry a leather belt with a hlg knot in the buckle end, and If a dog attacks you, give h a good clont on the ·ose with the knot. Also, never tarn yoor back on a dog or ran, for be'U rarely attack yon. Finally, if yon are in donbt M to the dog's MendHnefi, check his tail If iVt sttff- reach for the spray! CONFIDENTIAL TO HARRY IN DUXBURY: While the hereditary factor fa baldness is of prime importance, I agree, proper hair care will help a man keep Ms hair longer.

UTTERFLY QUESTION: What is the dijjerence between a butterfly and a moth? * * * ANSWER: Butterflies and moths belong to the same family of insects, the Lepidoptera. They go through the same changes before they reach their adult form First there is an egg which hatches a larva or caterpillar Then the caterpillar changes to a pupa which encloses itself in a cocoon or chrysalis, later emerging as an adult with wings There are about 700 species of butterflies to about 8 000 species of moths. There are many differences in ap- pearance and in the habits of butterflies and moths Butterflies usually fly by day, while moths are nocturnal' Butterflies rest with their wings erect while moths at rest hold their wings flat or fold them over their backs. The body of the moth is more plump and furry than that of a butterfly. The antenna of the butterfly has a knob at the end, while the moth's antenna is feathery but lacks the terminal knob. There are a large number of moths which destroy trees and vegetation. The carpet moths and cloths moths create a large monetary loss to individuals and merchants The moth m the larva or caterpillar stage does the damage.
