"After I completed that race freestyle) the strain was so great I threw my arms around my coach and bawled."

Burton shared his knowledge of swimming with the Lethbridge swimming clubs prior to the banquet as he held clinics at both the YMCA and the Fritz Sick pools.

Tom took the mike as the representative of the Butter- field family as sons Blake and Greg sat back and enjoyed dad's talk He gave a brief history of rodeo and was thankful for the youth movement in sport with Little Britches, high school and college shows. "I'm proud of the sport- smanship shown in he stated, and he told the youth that without "try and drive" they won't get far in life or in sport Harold Osmond, representing minor hockey in Lethbridge, reminded the audience of minor hockey week and to "take your son to the game, don't send him "There were 200 boys in the program when it started and now there are 900 youth in- volved." He credited the Lethbridge sportsmen who helped to start the minor hockey program in the city and added that the boys should not low sight of the fact that it's not necessari- ly the best team that wins but the one that plays hardest. The master of ceremonies chore was masterly handled by Ian Mandin, who, on the in- troduction of Mike Burton said, "Mark Spitz, but Mike whistles."
