Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 28, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD RIDE 'EM COWBOY That's the basic idea, but as in other arts rodeo theory is one thing and putting it into practice is another. In Montana, where rodeos are serious business, the practicing can be done at a unique rodeo school. On the rough-and-ready cam- pus at Bigfork on Flathead Lake, the textbooks are prime stock and the majors are in bulldogging, calf roping, bar- rel racing and the like. Above, a would-be bulldogger learns there is not gentle way to pin a sturdy steer. Lower left, a near miss still means a big letdown. But in the corral where you can get a good grip on the critter, lower right, technique can be perfected.

(AP) Two escaped convicts gave police an account Tues- day of their four-day violence spree through Texas, including how they shot a rancher and then gunned down his dog when it licked its dying master's face, authorities said. Dalton Williams, 29, and Jerry Ben Ulmer, 22, were captured near Stephenville Monday night. Third escaper, Richard Mangum, 22, was shot to death by police. Rancher T. L. Baker, 65, was one of two persons killed as three convicts who escaped from a Colorado prison made their way across Texas, hunting down witnesses who Braless bandit strikes again LOS ANGELES (AP) The braless bandit has struck for the second time in two days, but this time she dropped the loot. Police said the woman, wearing a sheer blue blouse without a bra, robbed a branch of the Bank of Amer- ica of about Tuesday after telling a female teller in a note: "Give me all the money you've got or you're dead." The bandit ran from the bank with the money in an envelope but dropped it while hopping into a late-model Cadillac. The car, driven by a man, sped away before she could retrieve it. police said. On Monday, a person be- lieved to be the same woman, held up a Los Angeles sav- ings-and-loan office and made her getaway with Po- lice said a red-faced male teller was unable to describe the female bandit's face, not- ing only that she was braless under a light-colored blouse. Assault case set over Three men who appeared in Vulcan provincial court Tues- day jointly charged with break, enter and theft and assault causing bodily harm were remanded until Sept. 26 in Lethbridge for a preliminary hearing. Charged are Darrell Edward Gorzitza, 20, of Vulcan; Allan Curtis Ingraham, 27. and Delmer Jones. 20, both of no fixed address. Ingraham is free on cash bail and Jones and Gorzitza are each free on 500 property bail. The men were arrested and charged after a Vulcan home was broken into Aug. 14. A resident of the home was bad- ly beaten during the break in. Soviet grain harvest to miss record MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet grain harvest has reached the half-way mark and despite capricious weather and logging field work signs point to a crop in the range of 200 million tons. Western experts see no likelihood the Soviet Union will reach the 1973 record harvest of 225 million tons. The last estimate issued in Washington was 215 million tons for 1974. But a Soviet harvest of from 195 million to 205 million tons of grain would be considered good and play a part in alleviating high world grain prices and shortages. The United States is ex- pected to produce a bumper wheat crop, although somewhat below original es- timates. But drought will cause a 12-per-cent drop in U.S. corn production this year, experts say.

The other victim, Mrs. Ray Ott of Stephenville, had testified against Ulmer. Details of the rampage of rape, murder and random vio- lence were provided by Wil- liams, who District Attorney Bob Glasgow said "talked like a polly parrot." "He seems to be relieved not to be Glasgow said. QUICK DECISION Williams told officers the three were at Lamesa, Tex., when he remembered he held a grudge against Baker and decided to kill him. They went to the Baker ranchhouse and Williams shot Baker four times, Glasgow quoted Williams as saying. Williams said he asked the dying Baker if he recognized him and Baker nodded "yes." Williams then told Baker: "I want you to know why I killed you." Williams then said Baker's son, Gary, drove up to the ranchhouse and the trio tied him with wire to a telephone pole. Before leaving, Williams turned to young Baker and told him: "Tell everybody in the country I've been here." Williams said Ulmer then shot Baker's dog because it was licking Baker's face. Saturday night, the convicts broke into the Ott house, shot her and wounded her husband. Soon after that the convicts were chased into an area north of here where they were eventually captured. NO FIGHT LEFT Officers fatally shot Mangum, a bullet tearing away his jaw. He ran a short distance and fell. Williams and Ulmer then turned rneek- ly and surrendered. The trio escaped from Colo- rado State Penitentiary last Thursday night by climbing three walls. Authorities said the men shot a tire from the car of two young Alamogordo. N.M., women, captured and repeat- edly raped the women and carried them into Texas. There, they killed Mrs. Ott and Baker. They also robbed and staged a shootout with a state trooper, authorities said, then fled to where they were cap- tured, in rough ranch country just north of this small west- central Texas city. Glasgow said the surviving fugitives will be charged with Mrs. Ott's murder in Erath County and that other charges may be filed by federal and county officials in other parts of Texas.
