Rodeo future decided tonight TABER sus on the future of the Taber rodeo, now in its 35th year, is to be sought at a public rodeo association meeting Tuesday night at 7 at the Taber Centre. Problems besetting the rodeo committee include a lack of manpower for the two- day show, increasing costs of hired services, and requests from supporting organizations for a bigger slice of concessions including the bar of gold, the rodeo cabaret and other events. Members of the rodeo committee met the Taber Ex- hibition Association board on Thursday evening to clarify the position of the rodeo people. TEA proposed that the rodeo committee become a "management committee" under the umbrella of the ex- hibition association, and be responsible for staging the rodeo. TEA would take over the responsibility of all concessions the midway, food, bar of gold, cabaret, etc. Being supported by a dozen local service clubs and organizations, TEA would be in a better position to muster the manpower needed for the whole program. TEA was optimistic over the continuation of the rodeo. However, the decision will be made by the rodeo people after Tuesday's meeting. In connection with the Vic- toria Day weekend celebrations, the Exhibition Association has already assumed responsibility for the Monday rodeo parade and the horse show on the Saturday preceding the rodeo.'
