Fish Parasite
Is Described
By Van Oosten
A parasite which is causing in-
creasing damage to lake trout and
other fish in the Great Lakes was
described yesterday by John Van
Van Oosten, who is in charge of
the Great Lakes fisheries investiga-
tion for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, has his laboratory and office
facilities on this campus.
He reported that more and more
streams in Michigan, the other Lakes
states and the Province of Ontario
are being used each year by the eel-
like sea lamprey for spawning. A
fight against this parasite will soon
be started, according to Oosten.
"It's inpossible to estimate the
damage lampreys cause," he assert-
ed, "but Lake Huron and Lake Mich i-
gan fishermen, for example, report
that from 25 to 85 per cent of lake
trout brought in in various catches
have lamprey marks.
"Some fishermen," he continued,
"are in desperate straits because of
depleted catches allegedly caused by
the lamprey."
Van Oosten estimated it will cost
at least $1,000 each to provide for the
trapping of lampreys in more than
20 Michigan streams and an unde-
termined number in the other Lakes
states from early May to mid-July
every year.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 - P) -

plus goods, was cited for contempt of
the House Surplus Property Investi-
gating Committee today for failure
to produce records it deemed satis-
factory on a $12,936 deal in wire
The committee adopted a formal
finding that Fields "is willful and
contemptuous" in "refusing to pro-'
duce the books, records, etc., called
for" by a subpoena. High Wise, Jr.,
committee counsel, was directed to
dispatch the finding to House Speak-
er Sam Rayburn.
Fields Not Present
Fields was not in the committee
room when Chairman Slaughter
(Dem.-Mo.) announced the finding.
The record Fields gave the com-
mittee was a single sheet of note-
book paper listing a gross profit of
$4,442.80 on the deal and payments of
$1,480.93 to Glenn Dies, $1,480.93 to
Joe Doe, $400 to John Doe and $100
for travel and miscellaneous expenses.
"If I had any other records I would
be happy to bring them,' the rotund
little broker declared. He denied
specifically that he had any can-
celled checks, bank statements or
any other papers bearing on the
Surplus Disposal Policy
The committee is inquiring into
general policy in disposal of surplus
government property and what mem-
bers have termed the apparent "spec-
ial treatment" given Fields and some
other brokers on orders for goods
which find a ready resale at higher
Diverging from Fields' specific deals
the committee heard Stanley G.

Smith. Washington, testify he had
purchased cutting tools from the

cent. He said he had'handled about
$600,000 worth of tools but declared-

within the Army-to-Navy category.

surplus and from "dead stocks" of
private owners.
Smith testified he placed orders
for surplus nails with the Philadel-
phia office of War Assets Adminis-
tration, which sells government sur-
pluses, in behalf of firms in which
he was interested.
