Another property owner asked why Otter Tail Lake residents should assume so much cost when pollution is probably also coming from Rush Lake and other upriver areas. Although the study did not nave exact figures, he was told that the counts at the Otter TTail inlet are s ignif icantly lower than at the outlet. • Anderson said the sewer lines would probably run along roads behind lake cottages and the lagoon on a site a few miles north of Deer and Round lakes. That site is 49 feet above groundwater, he said, so treated wastes discharged in irrigation would pose no threat to the grounjwater. Speaking for the county board, Leitch said adjustments could probably be made with building permits and so forth to help out property o»7»rs faced with having to upgrade or install new sewer systems now to meet PCA standards, and then being socked with assessments and hookup charges for the new system a few years down the road. for now, the sewer project is in a waiting stage. Copies of the facility plan have been sent to PCA and to the Environmental Protection Agency in Chicago for review. Trie county board will decide on establishing the district after the reviews are complete, and another hearing will be held at that time. If and when the reviews are favorable and the district formed, the system would be ccnstriieted in three phases. Phase t would be the lagoon and collect ion extending to the east side of Blanche Lake. Phase If scheduled for 1979, would serve the northwest portion from the lagoon to Long Lake and Phase 111, set for 1981, the remainder. * : *w>:-:««*:«ww^^^^ Canoe tragedy fears unfounded search in the BWCA. A group of canoeists found a canoe and camping gear in the BWCA and authorities were prepared to begin their search when a routine check turned up the owner in Houston. Authorities said Jeff Sewart, 19, had lost his craft and gear while canoeing in the desolate BWCA May 21 and caught a ride out of the region with passersby. A group of canoeists from the Outward Bound survival school reported finding the overturned canoe, along with some gear washed up on the shore of the Basswood Hirer. The remote area where the canoe was found is where Ihe Basswood River runs into Crooked Lake about 16 miles north of Ely. It is accessible only by air or water. Lake County Sheriff William De Rosier said the only clue to the identity of the canoeist was a medicine bottle found with the gear. On the bottle was the name, "Dr. Entzminger," and the words, "Bunker Hill Pharmacy, Spring Branch." A Duluth broadcast station told of the evidence and impending search and a woman listener familiar with Texas called the station and said she knew of a Bunker Hill Road in a Houston suburb called Spring Branch. Authorities then contacted Dr. Lindell Entzminger, who went to his Spring Branch office and checked the prescription number against his files to find the owner. Authorities then called the man's home, talked to his father and learned what had happened. TWO HARBORS, Minn. (AP) — An abandoned canoe in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota led to a search that turned up the owner over 1.000 miles away. .VuU:;:i;:c: '.yird (he owner in Texas Saturday night just before they were ready to launch an air and ground * Balloon Continued from jxagel The weather in the area was reported cloudy with scattered showers. The U.S. Coast Guard has issued a radio alert asking all ships in the area lo monitor an emergency radio frequency for word from Thomas, according to Johnson. The crew said the best hope of re-establishing communication with the red, white and blue balloon appeared to lie with two ships and three scheduled airline flights traveling a course similar to the balloon's flight pattern. Thomas, an experienced pilot from Troy, Mich., planned lo follow the path Charles Lindbergh took across the Atlantic in 1927 in his single-engine "Spirit of St. Louis." Thomas has called his balloon the "Spirit of '76" and is trying to become the first person to fly a balloon across the Atlantic. Johnson estimated that Thomas could stay aloft as long as 60 days. The 14-foot aluminum gondola, with a huge American flag hanging below, is said to be unsinkable, self- bailing and equipped with a sail.

MIDWEST FASHIONS (Util ti tte Fefjis Tleafre) Record exports cited WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's foreign trade accounts showed a surplus last month for the first time this year on Ihe strength of record exports and an apparently temporary, sharp drop in oil imports, the government said today. The Commerce Department said exports exceeded imports by J395.6 million in May. That was the first surplus since last December and contrasted to a $202.1 million deficit in April. The trade accounts are now $670.8 million in deficit for the year, contrasted to a $3.4 billion surplus over the same period last year. The nation developed a record $11 billion foreign trade surplus in 1975. The major factor in the -May surplus was a 24 per cent drop in the amount of oil imported into the United States. The 165.1 million barrels represented the lowest level of imports in 11 months. But the shift seemed temporary. The American Petroleum Institute, which reports imports on a weekly basis, has said imports for the current month are running at record levels. Commerce gave no reason for the plunge in May, but oil imports generally can vary sharply from month to month as refineries arid other users adjust their inventories. Cooking show host Scy dies LOSAXGELES (API -Mike Roy, host of local and national radio cocking shows, cookbook author and former network announcer, died Saturday at his home of an apparent hear 1 r.t- tack. He was S3. Oil imports are climbing again now because of heavier gasoline consumption by American travelers during Ihe suro- merandbecauseofgreateruse by industry. Oil imports for the year are 8.7 per cent ahead of the same period a year ago, despite the low import level in May. Overall, Commerce reported, imports were off by 4.2 per cent in May after no change during the previous month. The drop was the sharpest since imports declined 8.7percentinMayone year ago. Exports, however, sere up for the third straight month to a seasonally adjusted level of $9.6 billion. That surpassed November's record J9.-1 billion. The increase amounted lo 2 per cenl — contrasted to a 4.9 per cent increase in April. *Reagan Continued from pagt 1 him for the No. 2 spot. Muskie said others being considered are Sens. Walter Mondale of Minnesota, Aldai Stevenson of Illinois and John Glenn of Ohio. Carter's campaign treasurer, who has his sights set on raising $1 million in the fundraising tour, said that after the first 10 days "we're very close to being on target." Campaign treasurer Robert IJpshutz said Sunday that after 10 days of fundraising receptions around the country between $300,000 and $400,000 has been raised. He said Carter has cut his presidential campaign debt in half with the recent fundraisers and Carter's "true debt is between $300,000 and $400,000, but we also have to raise $350,000 for our convention expenses...."
