To begin with in a largo con- tainer like Whoop-Up Downs put a lot of enthusiastic peo- ple, then stir in Ihe most basic ingredient of all money add a bit of nice wealher, blend Ihe winning and the loosing so the wincing is stronger, and don't forget lo check Ihe mix- lure every half hour for devel- opments. The horse races present many interesting situations. Three types of people show up at all the races. First, there Is the expert bet- tor. He is easily identified, for there are always about a dozen different papers in his hand and his confidence shows. He has been to enough races to have formed a pattern in the way lie makes his selections. The expert goes to Ui3 stables, looks over each of the horses and talks to a few jock- eys. Then he comes back up and goes over the horse and owner names to see if he can remem- ber any that might have run at previous fairs. The expert is al- ways very secretive about his bet, taking a long time to make it. M. S. Angies, a Vancouver visitor, sounded like an> expert: "We definilley had the right horses Maria, it's just tliat we didn't have the right horses the right he said lo his wife. Then there is the middle man. He consults the paper too, but only casually and briefly. He doesn't go down to the sta- bles to look at the horses, as he relys on his own judgement and previous races. The defin- ite characteristic of the middle man is lhat he is cautious. He trusts no one and takes Ihe races quite seriously. M. L. Seann and family of Red Deer made these com- ments: "You don't always want to believe those papers, either. "No. 7 paid but did you see what No. 2 did last night? Finally, there is the betlor lhat knows absolutely nothing about the races. He Is thera sometimes for the first time in his life. He is there just for the sole enjoyment of racing, just for Ihe joy of gambling. He ad- mits that betting on the horse races is more fun than trying for the pink elephant in the fair booths. This man does not conslt any selections. He briefly convers- es with his companion and they decide, "yeah, that one looks okay." He is carefree, exuber- ant and out for the fun of it. Cathy Simek of Lcthbridgc tryed her hand at the Whoop- Up Down horse races, Friday Cor the first time. "I don't understand lliis at all, but what the "What does inside speed Besides having Ihrce types of race bettors, there are three common situations at all races. First there is the serious sit- uation. Everyone decides on the horse they think should place first Grandmother even agrees, and she hollers to her grandson two seats back, "We're sure it's No. 3." Then a lound voice is heard, "Scratch No. 3, scralcli No. 3 The next situation involves a dilema. The man and woman decide on the selection, 3-5-2. The man goes to place the bet and he makes a mistake and says 3-7-2. When he comes back to his seat and tells his wife what he has done she sends him back down. A half hour later he comes back. It's all right, Iheir bet is 3-5-2. They watch the race and the winning combination is 3-7-2. The third common situation Involves a spill. No, not a spill by a horse on the track. It just happened that the man with the hotdog in one hand and tho large soft drink in the other got a little excited when his horse placed first. Horses and bulls talk to The Herald Art-a-raina offers interesting displays By CATHIE RETI Herald Staff Writer Every artist has liis favorite art medium. Whether il's paint, chalk, crayons, working with paper or other materials, he has his own ideas of what image he wonts to depict in his art and has favorite coiors, patterns of design or brush strokes. Paintings, drawings, papier macho sculptures, pottery and almosl any type of art has been shown in the Arl-a-ramn build- ing during Whoop-Up Days. And no two pieces of arl art? Ihe same. From the start, some students must licvc similar ideas, but the finished product Is always diffcrenl, whether in color, brush strokes, or differ- ent movements of the pencil, The art fli.splnycd in tho building has done by school students in Pictures included portraits of persons and drawings of ani- mals, scenery nml abstracts wilh bright, hold colors. Some of these were skoichnl, some done In ink, some printed, and some ahslracl.s shown wcro just different colors of paper woven together. In Ihe centre of Ihe room Kiirroundinr; n small water founlnln wore different types of art than those of flat sur- face pictures. Here papier mache animals, art done with nails and string, clay models, glazed pottery, and wire sculptures were shown. Besides art that Is the kind just to sit around and be looked at, some art displayed could bo vvoni. A piece of macrame was displayed. This kind of art can be used to malic bells and purses. Even o tic-dyed tee- shirt was included in the ex- hibits. A first hand look nt how dif- ferent types of art i.s donn was offered by several demonstra- tors at (he exhibilion. Some girls demonstrated ma- cramc, snowing how different strings arc knotted together to form the pattern that eventual- ly comes out. One girl ws.s hooking a rug which would eventually show a white dog on red background. The pottery wheels spun, and artists formed vases out of Ihe lump of clay they started out wilh. Easlcs were scl up, and brushes lakcn onl, and with n few strokes, pictures started lo l.ilic form. The displays In the Arl-a- rnma building have something that cyery-lypo of nrt lover could find to suit his likings. Dy GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Two of the rodeo world's big- gest names are hi Lelhbridgo for the Whoop-Up Days rodeo. When asked if they would chat wilh The Herald, a spokes- man for Ihe two replied, "Of course we will, after all I was named after a newspaper, you know The Canadian Rodeo News." And so it was, lhat the 1970 world champion bucking horse, Rodeo News, and equally famous pal, the Holstein bull Dairy King, came lo pass on some inside information to us.
