Mills toured the lake layout In 34-36. He was two-under after the front nine but lost two strokes to par on his way home. __ The 70 gave Mills a slim one- stroke lead over three others.

Hale, who hails from Choec- tah, Texas, dropped his steer in the brilliant time of 3.5 sec- onds to take the championship in that event. 'Billy had to be at his best in order to win, for the top four doggers all threw their catch- es in under four seconds. Lloyd Fowlie, a Bindloss, Al- berta dogger was only one tenth of a second behind Hale in second spot. Lynn Perry of Citibank took 3.7 seconds and another American, Darrell well of Clarkson, Washington, ran the clock out to 3.9 sec- onds but could only finish fourth. The calf ropers were no slouches either. American roper Stan Harter waited until the very end of the roping, saw what he bad to beat and went out and beat it. Harter of Phoenix, Arizona, wrapped his calf in lightning fast time, nine seconds flat. He edged out Gerald Reber of Bowden who took 9.9 seconds to get the job done. Third place was held down by Pax Irvine of Sherridan, Wyoming with a time of 10.1. While Americans Amie John- son and Chip Enost were knot- ted at 10.3. Brian Claypool carried Saska- toon's colors into the winners circle as be topped the bull riders with a 74 point outing. Larry Townsend, Darby, Mont, hung on for a 73 in the bull taming while Hughey Vang of Okotoks earned 71 points in third spot. deve Loney of JSghwood, Mont, bested a Hester saddle bronc called Dun Gone, gar- nering 74 points and grabbing the rodeo title. Knotted in second spot were Ivan Daines of Innisfail and Bart Brower of Chase, B.C. with 70 points apiece. Consort's Jim Kelts received 69 points in third. Allan Thorpe of Edmonton bested the Cisco Kid in the bareback event and picked up 70 points and the title for his efforts. I Buzz Seely, Walla, Walla, Washington, earned 69 points in second spot while Gene Miller picked up third place money with a mark of 67. The amateur saddle bronc title went to Keith Gower with a 74 on a re-ride horse with Blaine Marr well back in sec- ond with a 63. Cindy Witcher showed the gals how they do it in Miles City, Mont, as she toured the barrels in 16 seconds flat. Sec- ond spot went to Sandy Mc- Namee of Gainford, Alberta with a'clocking of 16.5. BEHIND THE CHUTES Gary Logan of Sundre got the biggest hand of the day after his exciting bareback ride and spectacular spill Gary Anderson back, leading wagons CALGARY An- derson of Carbon, Alta., retain- ed his lead in the Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races Sunday, but he' had to go to the committee room to do it. The Anderson rig, driven by Slim Helmle, was initially given a five-second penalty for wagon interference, which, if it had stood, would have knocked it down to ninth place. Helmle protested the de- cision and won his point after judges viewed films of the race. The result left the Anderson wagon clinging to the lead with a four-day running time of four minutes, 42.22 seconds. However, a solid group of challengers is not far behind. The Newall brothers outfit from Rockyford, Alta., driven by Bob Cosgrave, is close at after a bristling run- ning time Sunday of Two other threats are the Grande Prairie outfits of Lyle Adam and Archie Hackwell. Adam is third at Kelly Sutherland, who drives the Hackwell rig, had his out- lit flying in record time out of the number one barrel Sunday as he covered the half-mile course in smashing the previous mark of It was the third time in four nights of racing that the Hack- wells claimed top place in day money. The tig is fourth at went out the back door in sum- mersault fashion but made the whistle and finished fourth with a 63 judges were in- jured cowboys Mark Garstad and Lynn Jensen Mark Twogood drew a diminutive bareback horse called Mr. Welsh but the small horse proved to be quite a handful Mark only lasted four sec- onds Bobby Brown of Adrian, Texas arrived direct from competing at the Calgary Stampede just in time to take out his saddle bronc He marked a 67 and split fifth and sixth Liz Kesler and Shir- ley Clark handled the timing Only the announcing took away from a great show.

Hamilton, 23, second-leading money winner on the Canadian tour, was happy to accept tbe top money. But tbe empUon into the Canadian Open was "what I was playing for all along." The playoff Saturday came after Hamilton and three-time Manitoba Open winner Moe Norman finished the regulation 54 holes at 212, four under par for the par-72 layout Norman, of Gilford, Ont, three-putted the first playoff green. Hamilton, who sank a tricky dgjht-foct putt on the 18th hole to tie Norman, made no mistake on the playoff putt Norman got second-place money. R was Hamilton's first win as a professional, giving him the Peter Jackson diamond ring and increasing his winnings on the Canadian tour this year to Hamilton had an up-and-down finaJ round at Niakwa Country Gub. racking up five birdies and five bogeys en route to the 19th hole. He reached it four un- der par, the total that Norman had taken into the clubhouse ahead of him. On the 18th hole, Hamilton pulled his second shot into the rough but chipped to within about eight feet of the pin ara dropped tbe difficult putt. Bill Tape of Kitchener, Ont playing in a twosome with Hamilton, bad missed by two inches on a 14-foot putt on the 18tb that would have sent him into tbe playoff also. His 213- stroke thintpiace finish was worth Hamilton, a tour rookie, didn't let up tbe pressure after Norman had putted through on the playoff note. "If you let yourself relax and think you can miss and still go on, it's poor. You've got to keep that out of your mind. I just tried to knock it on the green in regulation and go for a birdie." The best round of the day went to George Sbortridge of Minneapolis, a throMmdcr-par More sport on page 10 69 that gave him a 216 total and fourth place, worm Bob Fanasiuk of Windsor, Ont, had a n and Gary Pitch- ford of Toronto a 73 to leave them tied for fifth place, worth each. Both ended with 218 totals. CH1PKA LOW AMATEUR Low was Barry Chipka of Winnipeg, who recov- ered Irani a grim front nine to finish with two-over-par 74 and mstbole total of 280. Hamilton, playing one two- some behind tbe veteran Nor- man, twice feH into a tie with him in the final round and twice grabbed two-stroke leads. He bogeyed the 14th and 15th to put him back in a tie with Norman and Tape. "Tbe turning point was when T bogeyed those boles. I hit a couple of good putts for pars that stayed out I hit a good second shot on 16, about 20 feet from the pin and almost made an eagle. "Then I had a good chance or a birdie on 17, so I felt bet- ter after that I wasn't worried coming to 18."
