Fish Removal Project at Lake Storey Will Begin Lake Storey will be minus several million gallons of water and tons of gizzard fish after next week's clean-up operation. Designed to improve fishing at the lake, the operation was recommended by the State Department of Conservation and approved by the Galesburg City Council. The project includes treating Water with rotenone for control of nuisance fish that have afflicted the lake for some years. Water level of the lake will also be lowered by about eight feet to help control the stunted fish population, Kenneth Russell, state fish biologist, reported. His report came after tests at the lake revealed that the problem at Lake Storey is overpopulation with small stunted and undesirable fish. Russell said that the lake could develop into a good sport fishing area in about three years if recommendations are carried out by the city. Treatment Method The chemical treatment is as follows: Rotenone will be diluted in water and sprayed from a boat over the surface of the lake near the shoreline and in strips across the lake. This type of spraying is recommended for selective treatment where only certain species such as gizzard shad will be destroyed, Russell said. Most of the other fish will escape unharmed, he added. The rotenone dissipates faster in warm water and is not usually lethal after two weeks, according to the manufacturers. If the water temperature is above 65 degrees, fish should start feeling the effect within a few minutes and begin coming to the surface, jumping in an a unless manner or swimming rapidly. They soon lose their sense of equilibrium and die. The dead fish may sink and not be seen for two days. Edible and Harmless Russell pointed out that freshly killed fish is edible. The chemical affects their respiratory system. It works on all species of fish in different concentrations but is not harmful to man, other animals or plants, Russell said. City employes will then collect the dead fish with special equipment and bury them on the south side of the lake.

Lower Water Level Next phase of operation will be to lower the water level to make survival more difficult for nuisance fish. This is expected to be done in one of three ways, according to City Manager Thomas Herring. An attempt to open valves at the dam was unsuccessful. These valves were never opened after installation in 1923 and could be inoperable although another attempt will be made to work them, Herring said. Other methods are siphoning water over the spillway or notching out a section of the spillway. Draining about eight feet of water from the 135-acre lake Will mean getting rid of as much as 250 million gallons of water, according to Herring's calculations. Th project will extend over three years, with the chemical being applied and lake level lowered every fall. Only cost to the city is the purchase of 30 gallons of the chemical at about $6 a gallon and labor involved. Russell has warned that many desirable fish will be killed in the process, but it should be noted, he said, that the lake is overpopulated. City officials will take advantage of the lowered level of the lake and clean debris accumulated at the shores for years, Herring said.

Latest reports of grain production and consumption needs indicate that 1963 feed grain production will fall short of needs by about 6.8 million tons. Surplus stocks—of which there are plenty —will make up this deficit. The government began the feed grain reduction program early in the Kennedy administration. In 1961, the feed grain surplus was reduced by 12.9 million tons. In 1962 the program cut it by about 11.3 million tons. Agriculture department planners had anticipated a cut in 1963 similar to the 1962 reduction. Big Crop Comes Along But along came a record corn crop—3.94 billion bushels. This huge crop combined with the other feed grains—oats, barley, and grain sorghums—will total about 150 million tons of livestock feed. The department had anticipated a feed grain supply some- 1 7 A x lines— -913. Sol- Dale's '66 High Team Series: 2632. High Team Game: Axlincs- High Individual Scries: V. omon—433.

The feed grain program payments to farmers this year are expected to total $875 million. This means the government outlay will average about $128 a ton in the surplus reduction effort. The government's weekly weather and crop bulletin said development of the 1963 corn crop continued variable throughout the Corn Belt during the week ended! Sept. 9. The Weather Bureau said soil moisture supplies were generally adequate in the western sections of the region, while topsoil short* ages continued to mount in the eastern portion. The bureau said nearly all of the 1963 crop is expected to ma* ture without frost damage in the states of heaviest production.
