MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 27 193(1 FIVE HEAVY TOLL OF FISH LIFE NOTED Abnormal Cold Cuts Oxygen Content of Many Lakes in Minnesota. WINONA, Minn., IrPJ--The impact of abnormal cold, a deathly blow to upland game, jeopardized the northwest's fish supply. Capt. C. F. Culler, supervisor of the United States bureau of fisheries at La Crosse, Wis., asserted the record breaking frigidity is claiming a prodigious toll, of cold blooded animals. Shallow lakes and backwaters of Minnesota and Wisconsin are the death traps, the fisheries head explained. Oxygan shortage is the bludgeon with which nature is racking up the losses. Reduces Oxygen Content. "The heavy coating of ice without any thawing," Culler said, "has reduced the oxygen content of water in a great many lakes to the point where they cannot support fish life. The fish just die from lack of air." In charge of lakes and streams in the Upper Mississippi valley area, Culler has access to extensive surveys and numerous reports made during the past week. Safe from the cold are rivers and deeper lakes, and the majority of trout creeks. Shallow lakes hold the greatest threat. The extent of sub-zero chill, he added, will remain locked with the ice until spring thaws line the shores with dead fish. Visible through Ice. Culler believes Lake Pepin, a widening of the Mississipyi river near Winona, will escape the air deficiency b'ecause of the Hastings nine foot channel dam. This structure he described as preventing Twin City sewage- from entering the lake and utilizing available oxygen as it decomposes. Before advent of the dam, the lake was seriously endangered. Reports of dead fish in sloughs adjoining- the Mississippi have come from several sources. One observer noticed a creek clogged with dead animal life. In many lakes the dead fish are visible through the ice. A shallow lake near Waterville is frozen solid, according to a CCC camp superintendent. He believes losses will be high in southern Minnesota. Carnap to Lecture. .IOWA CITY--Prof. Rudolf Carnap, Czecho-Slovakian scholar who is famous among philosophers, will lecture and conduct a round table session at the University of Iowa March 9.
