FISH NURSERY AT CLEAR LAKE IS ENDANGERED Drop in Water Level Offset by Use of Pumps. Twelve hours a day, a huge engine is pumping water Into the Clear Lake open air pike nursery, battling with dry weather for the lives of more than 1,500,000 flsli ranging from one to two Inches in length. Every day since May 14, the 1,000 gallon an hour ptftnp has waged Its battle. For the first three weeks it worked continuously 24 hours a day. ; Now another problem presents itself—the drying up ot the drainage ditch that supplies water for the pump. This ditch has been clammed, but even with that, the water is lower than at any time last year, according to O. K Hoel, of the state fish department. The situation Is. even more serious than last year when the pump was installed late in the summer to halt the rapidly lowering water level. Last year the pond filled with water supplied by the creek originally intended as its water source. This spring, however, the pump had to be used from the start. -The creek filled the pond to a depth of about two feet, but the pump has raised the water lever to four and a half feet. About 20 acres are under water. Algae Will Feed Fish. At present the pond is clear, but if dry weather continues, algae and other water growths are almost sure to appear, Mr. Hoel said. Contrary to general belief, algae Is an asset to such nurseries. The weedy growths furnish food and shade for the fish; they retard evaporation and help keep the water cool; they protect the young fish from birds that would prey on them if the water was clear. Pumping of water into the pond will continue until there is sufficient rainfall to maintain the water at its present level. A rainfall of from one and a half to two inches is necessary to be effectual, Mr. Hoel stated. The pond was practically unaffected by last week's rains. The possibilities of open air pike nurseries was demonstrated here last year. More than a million pike, ranging from four to eight inches in length, were taken from the pond last fall and put into the lake. This year five other ponds have | been started, stocked with fish from the Clear Lake hatchery.

U Clear Lake is beginning to have Work at the state pike hatchery effect. Fishing has been better this spring than for many years. This is partly explained by the great growths of algae in the lake last summer which furnished large quantities of food for the fish, real explanation, however, is The that fish hatched in the state hatchery nere are just beginning to reach .egal size. This spring more than )1'5,000,000 pike were hatched. About 15 per cent of these were used to stock ponds and rivers, and the remaining 85 per cent will be used to ptock Clear Lake. The Mason City bass nursery also supplies the lake with thousands of bass annually. Built Eight Years iAgo. The hatchery was built here about eight years ago, but the first three years not much was accomplished. Eggs were brought in from other states, hatched, and put into the lake. About Jive years ago the state fish department started collecting its own eggs' from fish in state watres. Work has progressed rapidly since then. Last year most of the pike caught were just a few inches undersize but this year most of them are lli or l<7 inches in length. Mr. Hoel, manager of the hatchery, said it Hardie Albright, a stranger so 'far as we are concerned, is excellent, and the rest of the cast is' much superior to the plot of the picture! Somehow, these wild orgies of fast New York life always leave us rather cold. There is no doubt they exist, as they have since the days of Babylon, but there is something flat about presenting them on. either stage or screen. Bizarre settings, frequent mention of flasks and gin, handsome trapings, these do not make pictures any more than fine clothes make a gentleman or a lady. The only redeeming feature in most of these pictures is the fact that there is always the happy ending, which at least leaves a good taste In the mouth. •TVXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo.,., ie •I-' not quite as "up and a'coming" in its movies; first, Women of.

Between these two finished performers we have a talkie which is just about right as far as good entertainment is concerned. There are no sex problems, cocktail parties, wild petting orgies—just good clean, romantic love of the Pollyanna type, which is certainly a relief after gangsters, racketeers, gunmen, and what have you? Most of us are familiar with the play, in which Ruth Chatterton. enjoyed such popularity on the stage; some of us remember Mary Pickford In the silent version. Janet is superior to Mary, but we are inclined to think that the stage production, from a dramatic standpoint, scored higher than either. However, there VETERN LIVESTOCK MAN CLOSED OUT BY ESTHERVILLE BANK Financial failure o£ W. O. Nelson, Swea City's veteran livestock buyer, has put more or less of a dent in the community's economic affairs for the time being, the Swea City Herald reports. Without warning the Iowa Trust and Savings bank at Estherville, through whom Mr. Nelson wae checking, attached the proceeds of recent stock shipments to cover his account. A number of shippers here are holding checks amounting to $500 or less. "Mr.. Nelson said Tuesday he was doing everything in his power to settle with the shippers. He believes with proper cooperation he will be able to make some payments on the checks in the immediate future, after which he plans to take up the remainder when he gets his affairs righted again. "For the most part the people of the community are in deep sympathy with Mr. Nelson as he proceeds to get himself in shape to do business again. Unquestionably he is one of the best buyers in this region and has a wide following. Moreover he is the essence of square dealing." There is no hint of irregularity on his part in the present sit- Happy Hunter Presents her WSAS CITY PLAY BOYS Featuring JSingJug Trio — Novelty Acts DANCE «EXTW, TUESDAY, .JUIY T Missouri's Seven Rhythm would indicate that the work of the hatchery is beginning to have effect, and that shipped in eggs were not as practical as those taken from fish in Iowa waters. The number of eggs hatched can be little more than an estimate. In estimating the number of pike hatched, 175,000 eggs to the quart is the basis. For bass the basis is about 6,000 eggs to the quart. Pike can be hatched artificially as in the state fish hatchery here. Bass, however, must be allowed to spawn and hatch their young naturally. For this reason, they are Segregated in open ponds. In this isolated breeding ground, the bass rear their young with great success. Trout eggs are so large they are hatched in trays rather than jars as are pike eggs, Mr. Hoel said. Pike from Clear Lake hatchery have ben used to stock the six open air nurseries maintained by the state. They are located at Clear Lake, the largest, Vinton, Charles City, Waverley, Rockford, and Nashua. * Poor The worm turns all right, a Kentucky editor observes, but not until the voice on the back neat gives orders to do so.- -Capper's is little to criticize about Daddy Long-Legs, talkie. It is the story of a bachelor who rescues a. poor little waif from an orphan asylum and sends her to college, only to find in the end that he loves her. The scenes in the orphanage are great. Janet Gaynor plays the most sincere part of her entire career in these early sequences; but she Is also very fine in the finale, never overplaying her part but acting with a, quiet reserve which is the first essential of a good actress. Warner Baxter might easily have spoiled his part, thereby ruining the effectiveness of Janet also; as it te, he makes a. perfect bachelor and a good lover. This is the kind of picture which many patrons of the Call will welcome with open arms—or ears, rath-, er; a good talkie for the children, and the old folks will enjoy it too.

"At best, stock buying is a hazardous undertaking. It has become more so the last year or two with prices undergoing sharp fluctua- ions. Apparently, Mr. Nelson is a victim of the times, and no dishonor attaches to him in his present difficulties." -*Finni Hold Record Generally speaking, the natives of Finland are the most law-abiding.
