ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The Herald Sports Cardston rodeo has a little bit of everything Reeder, Ivins off to great starts for 1974 By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Two of the Chinook Amateur Rodeo Association's 1973 champions have started the 1974 rodeo season on the right foot. Bill Reeder and Tommy Ivins, the calf roping and the steer wrestling champions respectively, won their events at the initial Chinook rodeo held at Cardston this past weekend. Reeder, a Cardston calf roper, put the wraps on his calf in 11 seconds flat on Friday night's show and saw the time stand up over Saturday's performance. Bob Lytle, a veteran roper from Santa Rita, Mont., took a run at Reeder but fell four tenths of a second short of the winning time and had to be content with the runner-up spot. Knotted in third spot with identical times of 12.8 seconds apiece were Len Theirman of Lethbridge and Strathmore's Roy Groves. Tommy Ivins threw his steer to the ground in 6.1 seconds, giving the 1973 champion from Lethbridge first place money in the doggin and a good start on the 1974 championship. A Carsland dogger. Ronnie Ostrom, finished in second spot with a run of 6.5 seconds while Randy Broadhead of Cardston took 7.3 seconds to get the job done and ended up in third place. Streaking took on a western look Saturday afternoon when a Chinook Association member, attired only in a cowboy hat and a pair of cowboy boots, took a romp through the parking lot outside the Tall Timber Stables. The streaker didn't amuse the board of directors of the association though and they put a dent in his wardrobe money by levelling a fine in the offender's direction. The fantastic 81 point ride turned in by Monty French of Hillspring Friday night aboard a Shade Bros, bull called Wipe Out stood the test of time and gave French the bull taming title. Joey Masnyk of Coalhurst gained 72 points on the back of Squaw Hopper and moved into second place in the bull riding, one point ahead of Jim Cammaert of Rockyford. Gary Sparshu of Calgary woke up Sleepy'Bill long enough to combine with the bronc for a 79 point outing and grab the saddle bronc title. Veteran competitor Bud Connolly of Browning, Mont., was next in line with a 74, two niore than third place finisher Oscar Walters of Lethbridge. A Browning bareback rider, Jerry Lunak, rode in the TOMMY IVINS BILL REEDER Saturday afternoon slack and garnered 74 points, enough to take top spot in the rigging event. Second place went to Mason Cockx of Strathmore with a ride of 73. Another member of the Redder family, Mac, made it to the pay window when he picked up third place with a mark of 71. Two Maple Creek ropers, Bob Paulette and Lynn Wynder, were the winners in the team roping as they stretched out their steer in the fast time of 10.3 seconds. Guy Johansen of Hussar marked a 70 to win the boys' steer riding. Andy Masnyk of Coalhurst matched his brother in the bull riding as he too finished second. On the distaff side of things Charlotte Johnson of Cutbank, Mont, took the senior gals' barrel racing crown with a clocking of 15 seconds flat. Sharon Krause of Skiff was runner up with a run of 15.4. Sharon's daughter Dianne grabbed the junior barrel racing laurels, running the clock out to 15.8 seconds. Two gals, Carol Wilson and Dorothy Neilson, were tied at 15.9. BEHIND THE CHUTES Mary Lynn Walters decked out like Miss Canadian Patriot she wore a red, white and blue pair of slacks and a matching cowboy hat rodeo secretary was Fred Gladstone Carl Larson of Hussar took a horn on the side of the face in the bull riding he walked off with a little help from his friends Glen Thompson, president of the Chinook circuit, bucked off his bull he later made an excellent exhibition ride aboard Wipe Out... all for naught. four cowboys split fourth place money in the bull riding with 70 point rides Vern Arnold of Foremost kept the near capacity audience well informed throughout the show the next rodeo in the southland is a professional CRCA affair at Vulcan this Friday and Saturday. Fighting Saints did alright without high-scoring forward Walton left early after stick-swinging duel ST. PAUL. Minn. (CP) The hockey sticks swung up to head level Sunday night and that meant trouble for scoring star Mike Walton of Minnesota Fighting Saints. Walton was tossed out for a first-period stick-swinging duel, but the Saints got along without him, defeating Houston Aeros 4-1 to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven World Hockey Association semi-final. Houston had tied the series Saturday with a 5-2 win at home. Fourth game in the series is scheduled for here next Sunday. Some of the customers, the largest crowd in the WHA's two-year history, were still looking for their seats when Walton engaged Houston's John Schella at of the first pe- riod. "I was around him cleanly with the puck and he gave me a said Walton. "The blade end of his stick hit me on the nose and I think it's broken. Dolphins contemplating court action for trio MIAMI CAP) Miami Dol- phins say they are con- templating court action to re- lain the playing services of Larry Csonka. Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield, three stars who have signed with Toronto Northmen of the World Football League. "While our course of action has not been fully decided, quite obviously it will be di- rected against the people that participated in the signing, other than the said Dolphin president Joe Robbie. Robbie emphasized that running backs Csonka and Kiick. and wide receiver signed March 31 by the Northmen for the 1975 not be involved in the possible court action. The participants included John Bassett Jr., owner of the Northmen, and player agent Ed Keating. The Dolphins' announcement follows similar actions by two other NFL teams. A temporary court injunction was gained Friday by Cincinnati Bengals against the WFL for signing Bill Bergey. and Dallas Cowboys obtained a temporary in- junction Sunday against the WFL in the signing of quarter- back Craig Morton and running back Calvin Hill. Hill and Morton can't pro- mote the WFL and the teams ARE YOU THIS MAN OR WOMAN? CAREER SALES OPPORTUNITY: Would you like to earn to a year (and more) as a sales- person?

The in- junction also restrains them from trying to attract other Cowboys to WFL teams. Lawyer .Bill Sims, representing the Cowboys, said the club also is seeking to void the contracts signed by Morton. Hill and Mike Montgomery with WFL teain.s. Among other things, the Bengals seek to rescind Bergey's 1976 contract with the WFL's Virginia Ambassadors on the grounds that it "undermines Bergey's obligations" to the Bengals. "I was impressed by the quickness of the restraining order." Robbie said Saturday. "And let me tell you as a law- yer that such temporary re- straining orders are hard to come by. "I think all the teams which have lost star football players will obtain lawyers to protect their rights." Robbie said. He said there is a danger of an impaired relationship be- tween the player and his team "while the player has alle- giance elsewhere and is still under contract to play in the NFL." "I'm not suggesting at all that Csonka, Warfield or Kiick would consciously do anything less than their best next sea- Robbie said. "I personally don't believe it." Nettles inks JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (CP) Jacksonville Sharks of the World Football League said Saturday that they have signed middle linebacker Ray Nettles, all-star middle linebacker for British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League, to a multi-year contract. Terms of the contract were not announced. Referee Bill Friday gave Walton a game misconduct penalty, letting Schella off with a" five minute penalty for slashing. "I'm not the kind to swing a stick at anybody unless they try to take my eye said Walton, who won the WHA scoring title with 57 goals and 60 assists. Houston coach Bill Dineen said he didn't, think Schella had deliberately injured Walton. He was more concerned with his team's collapse after taking a 1-0 lead. "We controlled the second game of the series at Houston and were in control in the first period here, then we seemed to lose all of our he said. The Saints held a wide edge in shots Sunday night, 36-20, as Houston gave Minnesota goalie Mike Curran little to worry about. "It, was the best game this team has ever played when I've been in the said Curran, who was unhappy about being on the bench while rookie John Garrett played the first two games. "We just didn't want, to lose said Minnesota coach Harry Neale of the Saints' three-goal comeback in the second period, led by George Morrison's two goals. Concerning the Walton- .Schella fracas, Neale said: "If you swing and hit, you get five minutes. If you swing and miss, you get. five minutes and you get thrown out of the game." Saints' president Wayne Be- lisle was fined Sunday by WHA president Dennis Murphy for personally berating referee Ron Sloan during Saturday's game. Part of Houston's problem was a tired, ailing Gordie Howe, who played only a small percentage of Sunday's game. He has had only one assist in the series and is suffering from the flu. Ted Hampson and Wayne Connelly scored the other Minnesota goals while Frank Hughes scored for Houston. Gordie Gallant, singled out by Houston fans for his aggressive defensive tactics against Howe in Saturday's game, went to the penalty box with him at of the second period. When the two players re- turned to the ice, there was an almost immediate con- frontation. Gallant was ejected from the game and scuffled with fans en route to the dressing room. Houston scorers in the game were Andre Hinse. Len Lund, Murray Hall, Mark Howe and Gord Labossiere. Connelly and Walton scored for Minnesota.
