Of Michigan Honors Weaver Saturday. April 27 , 196 » State And Utility Team Death Claims On Wisconsin Wilderness J. L Bergeron MADISON WIS. — A cooperative recreation plan, protecting wilderness on the vast Chippewa flowage in Sawyer County, has been approved by the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board and the Northern State Power Co. W. N. Marx, president of Northern States Power, L. P. Voight, secretary of the Department of .Natural Resources, and John A. Beale, administrator of the Division of Conservation, signed the agreement adopting the plan. Northern States owns the dam which forms the flowage, on the Chippewa River, and utilises the ,17,000 acres of water as a flood control reservoir and for augmenting river flow during dry periods. As a recreation resource, the Chippewa flowage is famed for exceptional musky, walleye and crappie fishing. Wilderness values also rate high on the flowage, and the recreation plan recognizes and protects the wild scenic quality of the shoreline. Of the 181 shoreline miles, Northern States own 75 per cent. Within the flowage are 120 islands, and the company owns 90 per cent of the Island shoreline. Only a few cottages and small resorts, some on land leased from Northern States, Interrupt the unbroken primitive shore landscape. Access to the flowage is presently provided by several public sites, some of them poorly marked and difficult to locate and use. Other access points are at private resorts. Under the plan adopted, the wildernes quality of the flow- Is IW •' -.■!» Si.' > ' ■ V \ ÉA ,1 ! i.i.'ti 11 iihi :¡! i IW m¿ m li tóÉ itili •M Nr f|Î! kfû «¡i ¡® Mi iti; Wfii m m \!'>ì MAP SHOWS BIG CHIPPEWA River flowage in Sawyer County which will be preserved under an agreement 4gned by Wisconsin's Natural Resources Board and Northern States Power Co.

Imports into the North Central states, Inland’s primary market, increased in 1967 more than 10 per cent, he said. The steel quota bill would restrict imports to 0.6 per cent of steel consumption. Block suggested that stockholders agreeing with the industry position urge their senators and congressmen to work for early passage of the bill. He noted that Inland is now participating in a basic educa tion program in cooperation with the federal government to improve the language and mathematical abilities of em ployss with less than 8th grade skills. Inland Quarter Breaks Records Record first quarter earnings, up 84.5 per cent over last year, and new quarterly records in sales, raw steel production, and mill shipments were reported today by Inland Steel Co. Earnings were $20.1 million, or $1.10 per share, compared with $10.0 million, or $.60 per share, for the first quarter last year. The previous first quarter high of $19.2 million, $1.06 per share, was reached in 1965. “Demand for our steel mill products strengthened greatly during the first quarter as the combined result of higher levels of activity in steel consuming industries and customers’ accumulation of inventories prior to the Aug. 1 labor contract deadline,’* Chairman Philip D.
