Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, July 14, 1971 THE IETHMIDGE HEULD 13 Gladstone second in calf-roping Bull breaks Reg Kesler's leg CALGABY (CP) Rodeo events went into their fifth day at the Calgary Stampede Tues- day under mainly sunny skies and before a near capacity crowd of at least per- sons. The action, however, was marred by a couple o[ acci- dents. Reg Kesler of Rosemary, Alia., a contractor who sup- plies bucking stock, had a leg broken when a bull which had just been ridden got away from handlers and pinned Kesler's leg against a chute gate made of steel bars. He had been get- ting a bull ready for competi- tion. The other casualty was a .competitor thrown against a 'steel barrier head first by his mount in saddle bronc competi- tion but he recovered after a rest. This was Charlie Lewis of Vernon, B.C. Bull riding, the most danger- ous event in rodeo, went into its second of two four-day go rounds Tuesday with Bill Nel- He's got a problem OCEANPORT, N.J. CAP) Jockey Wayne Jamtgaard's toughest rides often are in a car. Police keep trying to ar- rest him as a juvenile auto thief. Jamtgaard stands 4-foot-l and weighs 85 pounds. "The police stop me when I drive a car, everywhere I said the 22-year-old ap- prentice jockey who is riding at Monmouth Park. "Now when 1 see a police car I just pull over and stop." "He's the smallest jockey I ever saw and I'm said trainer Buddy Raines, who holds Jamtgaard's contract. The race track seems the perfect place for Jamtgaard, a man who has been battling odds for a long time. He underwent open heart surgery as an infant and again when he was 12 years old. Jamtgaard, who has a 6-1 brother, doesn't kiiow if the surgery affected his physical stature. ANSWERED AD The native of Vancouver, Wash., beard the call of the track in the form of a news- paper advertisement when he was 17 and living in Newport, Ore. "People were telling me I should be a jockey because of my size and then I saw an ad in the paper asking for aspir- ing Jamtgaard said. The ad had teen placed by George Stribling in Ohio. Stri- bling developed such jockeys as Bill Hartaek and Eddie Maple. So Jamtgaard got on an air- plane, all 59 pounds of him at that time, and joined Stribling at Ascot Park where he be- came an exercise rider. He got bis apprentice lic- ence last year. "The first time I put him on a horse was at Garden said Raines. "When he re- turned to weigh out he at- tempted to lift 30 pounds of lead from his horse's saddle, was hit by it in the stomach and knocked flat on his back.

Nelson lied for second place in the first go round with a 74 worth ?643. Second Tuesday was Bruce Hough of Bottlesvillc, Okla., with 67 and third was Hank Abbie of Rumsey, Alta. The second rounds in steer wrestling and calf roping also began Tuesday. Fred L a r s o n of Sheridan, Wyo., set an arena record with a time of 4.5 seconds in steer wrestling, giving him a com- fortable nine tenths of a sec- ond margin over second-place Mark Schricker of Canyon City, Colo. Third at 5.G was Chuck SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan TETHBRIDGE Junior Miners, currently in second place in the Southern Alberta Senior Baseball League, lay all their cards on the table this week- end at Henderson Park. Miners, defending Alberta, and for that matter western Canada, champions, open defence of their title Saturday in a two-day, double-knockout affair will) three other clubs. The locals will play host to Edmonton Blue Willow Angels, Calmar Bobcats and Red Deer Moose. These four clubs will do battle in an elimination-type series with an "A" champion being declared along with a "B" division survivor. The "B" champ will have to beat the "A" section winner twice to win the Alberta crown. 3 Miners open against the Blue Willow Angels at two o'clock Saturday with Red Deer and Calmar play- ing at five, in the first two games. From then on the schedule will be based on who wins and who loses. Coach John Vaselenak and manager Jack feel they have the horses needed to retain their provin- cial title. "It'l] be said Vaselenak, "don't forget, these, other clubs have to be good to he here." While manager Kerr expressed some concern about the Angels and one pitcher in particular, it was Red Deer who caused Yaselenak the most con- cern. Vaselenak, who spends part of his leisure time beating the bushes for prospects for the Montreal Expos, of baseball's National League, recalled seeing a pair of fine young hurlers from the central Alberta city at an Expo camp last year. "I don't even know if they are playing for this Red Deer the coach said, "but if they are, they'll be lough." Miners, for those of you who don't know, are tough in their own right having lost only three league encounters to their senior counterparts. The locals have a solid ball club, especially where it counts, on the mound. If the Miners get full distance out of their pitch- ing staff they should be right there when the cham- pionship is decided. Vaselenak can go with any of his three pitchers, Randy Wolsloncrofl, Rod Taylor or Randy Maxwell, at any given time. All three have proven they can go the distance under almost any circumstances, if they are right. And they have been right more often than not this season. Maxwell and Wolstoncroft are tall, lanky right- handers while Taylor is a fire-balling lefthander, who is at his best when the going gets tough. All three hurlers have seen relief duty and have seen spot duty at other positions on the diamond. One of the reasons for their playing at other positions is simply that they can wield a pretty potent bat as well as pilch. Miners aren't hurling for power at the plale either, as Tim Negrello is hitting the ball at a .500 clip while Bob Turner isn't far behind. Catcher Doug Yorgason, who has done yoeman service behind the plate for the Miners, is a steady performer with the bat. Defensively the Miners have very few holes which indicates how solid they are. The locals have the horses, they have been there before and came away with all the marbles. If they are lacking one thing it's support. You the fans can fill that one weakness in an otherwise solid ball club. Not thai any southern Alberta football fans will ever gel Ihe chance, bul should Ihey, remember, never bel with a girl named Judy Carter. This particular gal roots for the Cincinnati Ben- gals of the American Football Conference. Last season Judy bet some gentlemen seated next to her in the stands thai for she could call the Bengals' first play from scrimmage. She predicted correctly and tiie men, figuring it was a fluke, went for 3-1 odds she couldn't call the next one. Judy did, and "by the lime we ran Ihe first eight plays she had made more money in the stands than 1 did on tlic says hubby Virgil Carter, who just happens to quarterback the team. He also has Judy help him memorize Ihe firsl eight plays of each game. Boalwright of Clarkston, Wash. A time of 10.9 seconds in calf roping put Kenny Call of Blan- co, Tex., in first place. Second with 11.5 was Jim Gladstone of Oardston, the grandson of Sen. James Gladstone, the Blood Indian Senator from Cardston. Third was Kenny McMullan of Big Lake, Tex., with 11.7. The two bucking horse events and saddle provided their usual share of the excitement. Clyde Vamvoras of Devol, Okla., collected a whopping 78 points to take over the lead in bareback bronc riding while Joe Alexander of Cora, Wyo., was second with 75 and Bobby Berger of Norman, Okla., was third with 70. This displaced the three first- day leaders in the second of three go rounds Sid Savage of Melr'ose, N.M., winner of the first go round, who scored a 67 Monday, Paul 'Mayo of Fort Worth, Tex., at 66 and Lynn Jensen of Cardston, at 64. In the saddle bronc competi- tion, a 73 point ride by Tom Tate of Sheridan, Wyo., held up throughout Tuesday's round and it looked like he was going to repeat his victory of the first go round. Second with a 72 scored Tues- day was Ken Welch of Rosco, Tex., and third with a 70 Mon- day was Bill Smith of Cody, Wyo. Second go rounds in bull rid- ing, steer wrestling and calf roping end Friday while the second in the bronc events ends today and the third Saturday. Finals in all events will be held Saturday, last day of the Stampede. Tom Dorechester of Edmon- ton isn't one to let age stand in his way, especially when it comes to the daredevil antics of chuckwagon racing. Dorchester, who admits to being 60. made his four-horse Stewart Ranch outfit from Air- drie thunder around the track at the Calgary Stampede Tues- day night in one minute 10.48 seconds for a five-day aggre- gate of He also had the lead Friday and Monday nights while sec- cond-place Ralph V i g e n of.

Third over-all with was Allen Brown driving the Ken Borek wagon from Daw- son Creek, B.C. There was added excitement on the backstretch Tuesday as a disaster was averted by fast- working Stampede officials. Ivan Garby in the Red and Terry S'charf wagon from Cal- gary had finished his heat and was taking the team and rig across the tfack at the usual gate. However, his team balked when the starting horn for the next race sounded and the rig was straddled across the track as the four wagons sped near- er. One official said the track was cleared with seconds to spare.
