Rodeo Draws st Crowd Steer Bulldogger Turns In Record Local Arena Time Taking advantage of reduced prices, the week's largest crowd turned out last night for the third Beutler Brothers rodeo performance at the West Texas fair grounds. With four sections of the huge grandstand filled, cowboys went to work to give by far the best per- formance of the current show. Their enthusiasm spread to spec- tators, who applauded frequently.

It was an hiunble beast but even so, he strutted a bit more than did the rider, C. D. Harris, representing one of San Angela's leading b u s 1 ness establishments. Perhaps his ancient mode of travel represented busi- ness prosperity of.the Tom Green county city. No one bothered to ask. Harris climbed aboard hU donkey early. Men day morning, 3 o'clock to be t.wct. At that, he his mule must have received a Itft or two along the route. In sharp contrast to the un- shaven and weary Harry was Ihe Abilene welcoming party. Accompanied by a police escort, the Abilenians rode forth to the city limits in a caravan of shining new automobiles. Being from the "Howdy Neighbor" city, (he Abilen- ians sent one of their num- ber forth aboard a donkey of the Taylor county vari- ety. Gene Canirell, rider of this beautiful animal, ac- companied the haggard San Angelo visitor on the final stages of hU humiliating journey, which culminated in a don-ntoirn parade.
