OpMi doily 2 to p.m. 7 nmM 327-O944 Ot CAU WtlMS SHORTY HERINfrW c Final action set for this evening i Whoop-Up rodeo in homestretch By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Only the calf roping and the bareback bronc riding events boast new leaders after the second night of action at the Whoop-Up Days rodeo. The roping improved some- what! over the first night with three new faces appearing in the top four ropers. Gerald Reber, a consistent roper from Bowden, Alberta, put the wraps on his calf in 11.5 seconds and has a comfort- able lead after two nights of rodeo. Another familiar face in Southern Alberta, Arnie John- son of Out Bank, Montana is in second spot with a clocking of 13.9. Gerald Stone of Madden finds himself in third place with the slow time of 15 sec- onds fiat while first night lead- er Barry Edge has slipped to fourth with 15.8. Jim Clifford, a former Cana- dian bareback king has moved into the lead in the rigging ev- ent. Jim raked a Kesler bareback horse called Dry Gulch for 71 points, moving him into first spot. First night leader Bud Monroe now finds himself tied for second and third with Gene Miller of Busby. Gene scored a 67 last night, moving him into the tie with Miller. a bareback bronc that bucked on Thursday night and injured himself after giv- ing Dale Greenwood a 63 point ride, had to be put away. Stock contractor Reg Kesler expressed regret at having to do away with the animal but added that the injury, a dislo- cated vertabrae, would not have mended. Even in a rugged sport like rodeo it is extremely rare that something like this happens. It has been quite a number of years since a similar incident has occurred here in Southern Alberta. Cleve Loney of Eighwood, Mont, hung on to his lead in the saddle bronc riding with bis 67 he earned Thursday. Only Tom Bews of Pekisko moved into (he top four last night with a mark of 67 astride Sun Tan. Tommy is in fourth behind Mel Hyland and John Gratton who-share second and third day. with 69s earned Thurs- No one came close to unseat- ing Hank Abbie as the bull rid- ing leader. Hank turned in a great 80 point ride on Twisty during the opening night's per- formance. Highest mark last night was a 62 earned by George Thomp- son of Black Diamond. Knotted in second and third two points ahead of Thompson are Gary Hunt, Williams Lake, B.C. an Lethbridge's Lee Wachter. IT GOT WORSE The steer wrestling seemed to go from bad to worse. Only two of 10 doggers were able to tip their catches over and Harold Holt, of Linden, Washington, found his first night's time of 5.9 still the one to beat. Moving into second was Blake Butterfield with a run of seven seconds flat while Garth Adams remains third with the slow time of 13.7 sec- onds. Ernie Dbrin's team >won the wild horse race for the second night in a row. Lila May Stewart of Ms- soula, Mont, saw her first night's run of 16 seconds flat stand up to win the first go round hi the gal's barrel rac- ing. Jerri Duce however, has the lead after two runs with a combined running time of 31.8 seconds after a brilliant 15.6 second run in the second go round. The gals finish the go round tonight and declare an average winner. In the chuckwagon races, which preceed each evening of rodeo action, Phfl Pollock took over-the lead. Pollock drove the Ward Wil- lard outfit into the top position with a total running time of after tm nights of rac- ing. Second spot is held by the John Irwin rig of Calgary with Richard Cosgrave up. Their two-night In the first race of the cve- ning, a two-v affair, John Vern Mutii wagon borne ahead of ESresman Bros, of Arrowwood with Larry Mead driving, but when the penalty times were added both wagons finished in a tie with identical times of Pollock drove his rig to vic- tory in the second heat and in doing so recorded the fastest time of the night, He beat out Colbourne Bros, of Wetaddwin driven by Gary Dorchester. Richard Cosgrave handled the reigns, for the John Irwin outfit and took the third heat, winning out over Evan Bodrug of Calgary and Pahal Motors of Wetaskiwiu, After the penalties were as- sessed In the fourth beat, Smokey Wilson cams out with the fastest running time, Sun- down Hank saw the penalties move him into second ahead of the Block Bros, wagon. In the final heat of the night Gary Dorchester drove the Ray Courtney D held on to win feature race A stretch drive by Courtney D carried him past Cumloops and to victory in the featured race Friday at Whoop Up Downs. The ride by Irving Simpson thwarted an attempt by Cum- loops, with Herbie Ollive up, to win his second feature race in as many starts. Night Call took the early lead in the featured W. T. Hill Farms race, relinquished it to Cumloops in the back stretch and finished third. Simpson also won the fea- tured race Thursday aboard Hole Card bis only wins in the meet. Courtney D, owned and trained by Jack Boren of Ver- nal, Utah, who also owns Hole Card, paid to win. He covered the seven furlongs in 1-5.

LOUIS (AP) When Gene Littler bogeyed the llth hole to go two over par for the day, his reaction to adversity was typical of the plucky little man. "All you Can do in that situ- ation is grit your teeth and keep Littler said. And Littler, a why, 42-year- old veteran who's on the come- back from cancer, did just that. The result was five birdies in a the best on the pro golf tour this sub-par figures on six of seven holes. It was good for a 66 and gave Littler a 132 total, eight under par on the Norwood Hills .Country Club course, and a one-stroke lead going into to- day's third round in the St. Louis Children's Hospital golf classic. His lead was far from secure, however, with defending cham- pion Lee Trevino, veteran Bob Goalby and John Schroeder threatening just one stroke be- hind at 133. Trevino, the defending cham- pion hi tins tournament that of- fers to the winner, charged into position with a sparkling, six-under-par 64 that included two bogeys, while Goalby had a 68 and Schroeder 67. Tied at 134, just two behind, were Rik Massengate, 69, and Jim Ferriell, 67. Tom Shaw, who had a 63, headed a large group at 136 while South Afri- can Gary Player and leading money winner Bruce Crampton of Australia improved to 137. Crampton had a 66, Player 67. Meanwhile a host of in the first round of the Kingston Invitational golf tour- nament Friday, but tour coor- dinator Georg Cftfton promised a tougher layout for the next two rounds today and Sunday. Leader Bob Panasiuk's 64 shattered by one the 15-year-old competitive standard at Cata- rsqui's par-70 rating. Two others equalled the mark set by Kitchener's Gerry Kes- in the 1958 Ontario Open- Winnipeg's Wilf Homenuik and John Kindred of Sarasota, Fja., were a shot off the leader while veterans Hoe Norman of Gilford, Out, and Bob Breen of Oakville Ont, posted 66s. "The course played easy to- Clifton admitted after 22 in Uie field of 123 oC Canada's top pros and a handful of lengers from the United Mexico and the Bahamas bet-: tered par. "Now we start to separate the j men from the boys. For Satur- j day's round, the tees will all go back and we'll change the pin "We'll add 20 yards to every bole. A good score Saturday will probably be 67 and Sunday a 69 and there'll be a lot more 72s Sunday." Fanasiuk, the 1972 Canadian Professional Golfers' Associ- ation champion from Windsor, Ont., credited several hours on the practice tee with veteran Al Balding earlier in the week with straightening out his game. Kindred, formerly of Peterborough, Oat., and v To- ronto's Ben Kern, who had a 67 Friday, fashioned record-break, ing 30s on the back nine. Norman, miffed at the CPGA earlier in the week when told he would have to go through a pre- qualifying round Friday to try Monday to qualify 'for next week's Canadian Open at Mon- treal, refused an exemption to the Canadian championship. The exemption was one of two that became available for Cana- dians when Bon Wifley and Vaugban Trapp, both of Van- couver, elected not to play. It will mark the first time in 21 years that Norman has passed up the Canadian Open. Houle makes move MONTREAL (CP) Rejean Houle. a utility forward with the National Hockey League Montreal Canadiens for the last three seasons, today signed a three-year contract with Les Nordiques, Quebec City's entry in the World Hockey Associ- ation. In a telephone interview from Quebec Jacques Plante, general manager of the WHA club, said that neither he nor Houle were willing to disclose monetary terms of the contract Houle. 23, is a native of Rouyn, Que. He had been flirt- ing with the idea of jumping to Qostoec CKy team for the last six months. The contract was negotiated on Houle's behalf by Montreal lawyer Gabriel Lapointe, with both the player and his repre- sentatire present for a Quebec City news conference to an- nounce the signing.
