prepared today to renew the seven-
year-old fight of sportsmen's groups
to block further diversion of water
from the Bond and Agate Falls, fam-
ed upper peninsula beauty spots.
The organization sent a bulletin
to its affiliated clubs asking each to
appeal to John R. Dethmers, who
takes office Jan. 1 as attorney gen-
eral, to allow a court suit over the
diversion. Conservationists contend
the diversion is damaging to fish life
and to the scenic beauty of the falls.
