Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 17, 197! Whoop-Up horse show attracts entries By RIC SWIIIART Staff Writer The Lethuridge and District Light Horse Show for 1971 is in the record books as one of the best ever. It started in 1952 with Dick Painter and Bill McAdoo and now is in the hands of men like Walter (Pappy) Hyssop and Charlie Van Home, men who provide the real backbone for this country, and with the love of life these men and many oth- ers like them generate, a grow- ing institution like the light horse show will live on. Mr. Hyssop, remembering back to the first years, said it used to be an open show with horses of all types grouped for the eventh. "The last few years the show has become so big the commit- tee had to break the show into breed categories for each ho said. "This year, for instance, there were horses entered." Mr. Van Home said the first shows were not too big and they were run off in two days. Now we have trouble getting all the events run in fovr days. As in the beginning, today the fliow is aimed at the youth, the group under the mysterious age of 25 plus. "My kids have won a lot of classes here over the years and one of them was the best rider of either men or wo- men for about five years. "Every year we try to get more events for the kids and they prove to us this is impor- tant. "This year we ran the bare- back event for the first time and there were 35 entries." He said we are always add- ing ami changing to keep the show alive. On the youth angle, which is utmost in the minds of both men, Mr. Hyssop said, "It's all the kids here." With an almost unbelievable respect for the now generation who have turned on to horses heads above any show in the with a passion, Mr. Hyssop proudly tells one anybody can go around the bams, watch these kids at work and admire them. "There's no cursing. They all have a job to do and they do it. "This type of thing is really good recreation, It teaches them how to win and how to lose, teaches compassion, and builds character." He said Canada is improving faster in horse showmanship than the United States because of the youth participation. "Kids are the secret." "There were some young peo- ple at this show good enough to compete in any show in North America." I WELCOME TO WHOOP-UP DAYS!

For the Third Year at the THE SONS OF THE SADDLE All Stampede Week U.S. but for one vitally interest- He attributed the growth of saddle dubs for the strong show ing in Canada. A well known trainer said this year 80 per cent of Hie young people he teaches are girls, which indi- cates equality of the sexes. Both men have played parts in horse shows for years, work- ing as ring stewards, ring mas- ter or joe-boys. "We all work together." Mr. Hyssop said he would like the public to know Lelhbridge has one of the finest horse shows bar none. If there is one little thing he would like improved, it has to be public support. Show Judge Thane Lancaster from Files, Idaho said the spec- tator support for this show is Charlie Van Home, left and Walter Hyssop ed in the sport, Mr. Hyssop won't be satisfied until every- body has seen at least one show. Mr. Van Home said every- body seems to like to partici- pate at the Leth bridge show. "We get really great support from the trophy donors and the Lethbridge Exhibition Board is all co-operation for the show and with Uie committee." With testimony like this, who can argue? Heart disease No. 1 killer in States NEW YORK (AP) Heart diseases remain the No. 1 killer in the Unilecl States, accounting for 53 psr cent of all deaths, the National Health Education Com- mittee reports. Cancer, accounting for 17 per cent of all deaths, is the second most frequent cause, the com- mittee found in a year-long study based on 19G8 figures and released Thursday. The study, reporting on killing and crippling diseases in the United States, called mental ill- ness, with an estimated 20 mil- lion victims, the biggest crip- pier. The report showed a national ocath rate of 9.7 per popu- lation in 1068, a drop from 11.3 psr in 1930. Heart diseases, caused mainly by arteriosclerosis or hardening of Uie arteries, claimed an esti- mated lives in 1968, the report said. Some 24 per cent of these victims were between 25 and 64 years old, it said. While persons died of cancer in 1968, the report said, an estimated 52 million persons now alive will eventually have cancer and 34 million will die from it unless prevention tech- niques or treatments are discov- ered.
