Disintegrating Under Warm Sun CLEAR LAKE--The ice-sheet which has covered tlie surface of Clear Lake since last November is slowly but surely disintegrating under the spring sunshine of the past few days. An opening of considerable width extends along the town shore of the lake and continues around to south bay. The area from Ventura to the sand bar is also showing several large open spaces and open water is found along the shore line practically all the way around. Observation shows plenty of ice still in the] middle of the lake although it is, becoming honey-combed by the: sun and. being worn thin by the wash of water beneath.
