of water belonging to the Southern
Assembly of the Methodist Episcopal

It .is-expected to take approximate
ly a week or 10 days to drain the
lake. It will be drained gradually
in order that the fish will not be
washed down stream. The fish in
the lake include large bass, bream
and deep lake trout. The fish will
be gathered and cared for at thetate
hatchery at Balsam for the winter.
According to lake officials there are
thousands of carp in the lake welch
ing from 10 to 20 pounds which tlicy
wish to dispose of. The carp will be
given to any persons coming f,. them.
