It may have been but no cigar. New faces pop up in steer wrestling Little change in riding event leaders By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer The leaders in the three riding events at the Whoop-Up Days rodeo remained the same as the first night after completion of Friday's rodeo. The calf roping and the steer had some new faces appearing at the top of the list. Mel Hyland's 80 point outing on Silver Tip remained the score to beat the saddle bronc riding. The closest anyone came last night was a fine 76-point performance astride the Reg Kesler Hard Twist by Edmonton's John Gratton. who won the Southern circuit bronc riding title last moved into se- cond place with that ride ahead of Jim Kelts of Consort with a 74 and Jerry Sinclair with 71 points. Both Kelts and Sinclair rode Thursday. Kirby. of the rodeoing Kirby family from New retained his lead in both the bareback bronc riding and the bull taming. a National Finals saw his 76 or. the 1973 bareback horse of the year in the rodeo world. stand up under the onslaught of four new faces in the top four standings.

Jirn Cammert of Standard had a 70 to move into third and fourth place was split between Brent Thompson and Bob Kartell with 65 point rides last night. Kirby's 77 Thursday aboard Ivory Lightning still stands as the best bull ride of the show and Bobby Berger remained in second spot with a 75. Mark Misner of scored the top ride Fri- day with a 74 point outing and took over third position. Three Jerome who rode and Jim Solberg and Leonard who were out last are bunched in fourth with 68 points. Rodeo clown Jerry Olsen turned serious for a few seconds last 6.4 to be exact. That's how long it took the big man from South Dakota to toss his steer and take the lead in the steer wrestling event. Times were still extremely with Olsen's run being the only one not in double figures. Danny Gittons of DeWinton moved into second with a time of 10.1 which was a pretty fair time considering that Gittons was completely turned around in the box when his steer was released. Harley Hook of B.C. had an 11.5 second run and holds down third spot. The calf roping continued to be brilliant. Jack Wallace led the ropers after the first night of action with a dazzling 9.2 second run and looked like he might end up the winner of the roping award. But Roy Grover of Carseland forced Wallace to at least share the laurels as he roped his calf in the identical time of 9.2 seconds. While there are many more ropers to go it is safe to say these two boys will be in the if not the eventual winners of the event- Larry Winkler's run of 10.2 seconds Thursday is still good for second spot but Sam Hamilton of DeWinton felt he'd like a share of that money and roped his animal in 10.2 as well. Dan Boettcher of Hanna is in the running with a 10.5 recorded last night. Pat Sparks of Taber took the first go round in the gal's barrel racing with a time of 15.5 seconds. Joy Brown of Granum was second with a 15.7. however is in the best position to grab the rodeo championship as she has the fastest time on two 31.1 seconds after a superb time of 15.4 seconds last night. Sparks had a 15.7 last night and is in second spot behind Brown after two runs. Don Coppithorne of Calgary repeated his first night's per- formance and won the wild horse beating the Albert Hunt team of Lethbridge over the finish line.

Stewart Farms have a total running time of after two runs. The Lewis monopo- ly is finally broken when one reaches third place in the overall standings as Maurice Normand has the Tercier Motors wagon holding down that position with a clocking of Fourth place was taken over by the L. 0. Nelson rig with the owner having a total of Action should be plentiful tonight as any of these four wagons still have a shot at grabbing the Whoop-Up Days title. Lewis has two shots at it whereas Nelson and Normand have no room for mistakes. Lewis guided the Adams rig to first spot in heat number well ahead of Tercier Motors and the Tom Healy rig with Larry Meade of Lethbridge in the box. Heat number four was a two wagon affair but-it proved to be a great race with Ken Dallas Dorchester at the nipping the L. 0. Nelson outfit. In heat three Ward Willard guided the Bob Allen team to victory. Reids Welding with Normand at the reigns and Erresman handled by Meade. Heat number five was a dandy. Bill Thompson guided the Hi Standard Charolais chuckwagon around the track ahead of the Rose Boreck rig with Dorchester up and Lewis in the Stewart Farms rig trailed the field in an ex- tremely close race. Lethbridge's colorful Sun- down Hank was left to run alone in the first heat again and made a vast improvement on his opening night's run but is still well back in the stan- dings. The Ted Salmon chariot moved into the lead after two nights of running with a total time of 113.1 seconds. Carl Salmon retained the se- cond position he held after the opening night's racing with a two-run clocking of 114.6 seconds. In third is Bill compiling a two race time of 115.3 only one tenth of a second ahead of Jack Salmon in fourth. In the first heat of chariot racing it was Carl Salmon besting Bill Thompson in a two-chariot race. Ted Salmon won the second heat with Tom Healy coming in second and Allan Hegge grabbing third spot in one of the better chariot races witnessed in Lethbridge. Jack Salmon ran away with the third heat after passing Ceaser Coppieters Jr. on the back stretch. The finals in both the chuckwagon and chariot races go tonight at 8.
