Attack Loosed
Associated Press Staff Writer)
Whatever the real design of Ger-
man strategy in the Balkans, or the
actual meaning of forthcoming Ger-
man-Italian-Japanese .conversations,
Herr Hitler has definitely loosed his
promised main attack on Britain in
the Atlantic. His other moves on
any front, diplomatic or military,
must necessarily conform to that
A grim admission in London of
tripled tonnage losses at sea in the
week ending March 2 headlines the
war news. Developments elsewhere
still are of secondary consequence.
It is in the Atlantic that Germany
must make good her boast of stalling
the American Aid-For-Britain pro-
An admitted British loss of more
than 140,000 tons of cargo shipping
in seven days is serious but not criti-
cal. What does matter is Nazi ability
to maintain any such rate "of sea
destruction over a period of weeks
or months. That would gravely
jeopardize the flow of American aid
aqross the Atlantic.
Unquestionably the stepped-up
Nazi sea and air attack on England
is due for intensification as weather
conditions in the Atlantic improve.
By the same token, the opportunity
for mass ferrying of American-made
and Canadian-made long range
planes to England for participation
in the Atlantic battle also will im-
prove with the weather.
It can be reasoned, however, that
the heavy ship loss rate reflected in
the London statement is a prime
factor for Washington in shaping
final details of the Aid-For-Britain
program. It illustrates graphically
why administration leaders, dur-
ing Congressional debate on the
Lend-Lease Bill, opposed hard-and-
fast restrictions on presidential au-
thority to readjust execution of the
program in the light of day-to-day
war developments.
The Admiralty statement again
reflects the British charge that Ber-
lin has exaggerated the sea victories
she has scored.

This station was established by the

Fishing Conditions
Prior to 1937, Dr. Hazzard wrote
in a pamphlet describing the work of
the Hunt Creek-Station, fishing cone-
ditions in Michigan showed a defin-
ite room for improvement; the catch
was relatively small despite heavy
stocking, many of the trout seemed
to have died during. the winter, or
fallen victims to predators, in gen-
eral, "fisherman's luck" was poor. Re-

search by the Fish Division of the
Department of Conservation gave the
answers to some of these confronting
problems, but not enough to be sure
of the right answer even for one
stream. At its July meeting in 1937,1
the Division was instructed by the
Conservation Commission to examine
all the trout waters then under state
ownership to see if a suitable location
for an experiment station was avail-
able. After considerable search for
land with the best trout stream
frontage, the present location wast
i chosen in 1938. The purchase includ-
dd about two miles of Hunt Creek'
proper, seven tributary-streams and
four lakes, all within a radius of one
mile from the building site.
No work was carried on that fall,
as it was necessary to study the
stream under winter conditions. The
following January, a crew of fisheries
biologists tramped the entire head-
waters of Hunt Creek on snowshoes
and found most of the streams free.
of ice. This meant that screens and
fish traps could be operated without
clogging and that trout could be ob-
served even in mid-winter. "After
the spot for work was selected," ex-
plained Dr. Hazzard, "the main
stream was examined carefully and
was divided into four sections by
types of water: a lowet, sand-bot-'
tomed, open meadow, sluggish. por-
tion; next upstream a more rapid,
gravelly part running through tama-
rack and cedar swamp; then a nar-
row, swift stretch with gravel and
rock bottom partly shaded by aspen
and other upland second growth; fin-
ally the source which flows through
old beaver ponds and dense cedar
swamp. At least one tributary enters
each section and the whole system
seems typical of a Michigan brook
trout stream."
Major Project
"A major project at the Hunt
Creek station this season will be the
development of a satisfactory meth-
od of determining the fish popula-
tion in any type of stream," said
Dr. Hazzard. Stream census by block-
ing and seining has been carried on
in Michigan since 1930 and has gen-
erally shown more trout to be present
than was thought possible, but the
method is slow and difficult in most
