W. A. (Gus) Delaney. Jr., prominent Oklahoma oil man and nationally known producer of registered Herefords, Saturday moved further into the limelight with his cattle when he sold Del Zento 1st for *51.000. setting a new worlds record for a price paid for an animal of Hereford breeding.

^represented in sales, but three bulls to three countries bas its significance. The countries are Canada, South Africa and the United States.
C. C. Buxton of the Horse Shoe Ranch started the bidding on the world champion animal at $5,000. Everett Ingle, owner of the Inglewood Hereford Ranch at Mena, Ark., had the bid at $20.-000 but when the record price was evetually bid it was George Rodenz of Toronto, Ontario, who
