Plans Completed For U.F. Kickoff Final preparation were made for the Oct. 1 kickoff of the Knox County United Fund-Red Cross Appeal by the women's division at a meeting Wednesday in the ballroom of the Custer Inn. Mrs. Werner Michelson is ~~ chairman, and Mrs. C. Ed- Galesburg Register-Mail, Galesburg, 111, Thursday, bept. 26, \9h£ 3 Anglers Get Bonus at Lake Bracken Lake Bracken received a bonus treatment Wednesday after Ken Russell, state Division of Fisheries biologist, found it would work. Russell originally planned to treat just the shoreline of the lake with rotcnonc to kill the stunted pan fish, but he found the rotcnonc was also wiping out the gizzard shad. Consequently Russell and his helpers treated the entire lake with the chemical, and by yesterday at 10 p. m. he figured the kill on gizzard shad was about 90 per cent of the population- He used 450 pounds of rotenone in the treatment, and this marked the first time powdered rotenone was used in Illinois. The small panfish, gizzard shad and yellow bass (as opposed to largemouth bass) were hit extremely hard by the treatment, Russell said. "It was one of those days when everything worked out extremely well," he said. The game fish, including the large numbers of channel catfish, were hardly bothered by this treatment, he said. The same operation will be conducted the next two falls also to cover the three-year life span of the gizzard shad, the same as in Lake Storey. READ THE WANT ADS! Snow Friday & Saturday! Weather bureau forecasters are not aware of it yet, but it was learned from a reliable source that there will be snow in the Gatesburg Community Friday and Saturday.

Main St. where two tons of snow will be dumped Friday and Saturday in connection with a sales promotion for ladies snow boots.

Later in the afternoon, Johnson and Wisgerhof and Dr. A. W. Koratsky, chairman of government and community service, met with representatives of schools and service personnel at Churchill Junior High School for an orientation meeting. The second report meeting of the initial gifts and corporate divisions will be held Friday at 12:15 p.m. in the Bamboo Room of the Custer Inn. Yesterday it was announced by Edward H. Gross, chairman of the corporate division, that gifts of $6,300 by Gale Products and $1,400 by In tra State Telephone Co. were made to the 1963 United Fund- Red Cross Appeal.
