Next to Hyland's 80 point outing Kay Kirby was the talk of the show Kirby took the early lead in both the bareback bronc riding and the bull riding. In the bareback event he was paired with the 1973 world champion bareback horse Moonshine and much to the crowd's approval was award- ed a fine 76 for his wild ride. Well back in second spot was Alan of Edmon- he trailed the New Jersey rider by 12 earning only a 64 aboard Gateway. Knotted in third and Fourth spot are Texas cowboy Chic Elms and Jim Solberg of both with 63s Kirby had the luck of the Jraw going for him in the bull riding as well and he drew the Kesler bull called Ivory Lightning. The two put on quite a show for the over ans on hand and earned 77 joints for their efforts. National Finals veteran Bobby Berger of Oklahoma was close to Kirby vith a 74 point ferome Robinson of sitting 14th in the world bull riding standings vas third with a 68. Another bull Sandy of was next in me with a 67. The calf roping times were iuperb under the ideal con- litions the weatherman hand- out last evening.

Tom Bews of Pekisko was the only Canadian to make a serious run at first and holds down fourth spot with an 11.8. Dave Lewis was saved best time till last The initial day of action for the chuckwagons at Whoop-Up Downs saw some fast times turned in with four wagons bunched in a tight race for top spot The final heat of the five- heat program was the one that produced the overall leader after one night's running as well as some exciting and strange action Dave at the reigns of the Stewart Ranch ng took 1 07.1 to round the track and ended up leading the field with the fastest running time. Lewis' run was a strange as he started out in a three wagon race but ended up circling the track alone when an interference call made on the Hi Standard Charolais outfit with Bill Thompson up Thompson's Ross came close to getting run down by the Lewis rig when he found himself right in front of the Stewart Ranch team coming around the barrels. Lewis pulled up and Nelson escaped uninjured. The Rose Boreck handl- ed by Dallas Dorchester was the third wagon in that heat and led the Thompson outfit around the track while Lewis sat in the infield with his team tangled up. In hot pursuit of the Stewart Ranch rig for fastest time overall was another team driven by the Lyle Adams rig. Adams has a time of 1-07 turned in in the first heat where he nipped Tercier Motors with Morns Normand up. They are in third spot with a 1-07.5 clocking. The third wagon in the first heat was the Tom Healy outfit with Lethbridge's Larry Meade in the box. Dallas Dorchester is. in fourth overall with his Ken Boreck righ with a running time of He won the fourth heat ahead of the only other team in the the L. 0. Nelson outfit. In the third heat Reids Welding with Maurice Nor- mand up was ahead of Erresman guided by Meade and Ward Willard's Bob Allen rig. Sundown Hank ran by himself against the clock in the opening heat of the night and when it was over he found himself well back in the stan- dings. In the chariot the Dallas Dorchester chariot and the Ted Salmon team are tied for the lead with identical running times of 56.9 seconds Carl Salmon was third overall with a 57.8 Dorchester won the first heat beating Carl Salmon and Bill Thompson. Ted Salmon took the second heat of chariots defeating Allan Hegge in second and Tom Healy in third The final heat of the night saw Jack Salmon best Allan Hegge in a two-chariot race.

The Reg Kesler produced show moved along at a fairly rapid clip and proved enter- taining and exciting for the disappointingly small crowd. Three years of hard work have paid off for Jerry Olsen and his buffalo Pat as the two put on a tremendous act between rodeo events.
