ALBERT OLSON very nice Whoop-Up Days as good as ever this year By ROB TURNER Staff Writer After almost five days of de- liberation and debate, the jury sitting on the Wnoop-Up Days case has reached a verdict. "IU nice worth coming to its alright one of tlie best fairs I've ever seen." The Herald was circulating in the crowds at the fair Friday afternoon giving patrons an op- portunity to voice then- opin- Rodeo secretary has active job Sunny skies Sunday A cold front which slammed through central and southern Alberta overnight leaving be- hind a trail of destruction had moved into southwestern Sask- atchewan this morning. In its wake, a flow of cooler air from northern regins will maintain cloudy, windy condi- tions in the Lethbridge district for the remainder of the day. Sunday should see a return to sunny weather although maximum temperatures should remain lower than those of the past week with high of 75 de- grees expected today and to- morrow. An old-fashioned dust-storm blew up in advance of the front- al passage as winds gustcd to 64 m.p.h. around p.m. Temperatures dropped 18 de- grees in one hour as the front raced by. Rainfall was spotty, ranging from a trace at both Fort Mac- leod and Tsber to over half an inch at Vulcan and Clareshom. Lethbridge received .07 of an inch while Watertai got .13 of an inch of rain. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff An important figure at any rodeo is the rodeo secretary. It is a behind-the-scenes job that offers little in the way of pub- lic recognition. It is a job, however, that Ra- mona Holt has been doing at the Lethbridge Whoop-Up Days rodeo for the past four years. The secretary is in charge of all entries in the rodeo, she col- lects the cowboys' entry fees, draws the stock for each par- ticipant and, most important of all she pays out the money to the winners at the end of Ore show. Another aspect of her job is to compile a list of the winners and send it to the Canadian and American Hodeo Cowboys' associations. She also sends a copy to the Southern Circuit Secretary, of which Lethbridge is part. These lists are com- piled and the eainuigs are] added to the cowboys total earn-J ings for the year, thus deter- mining his place in the stand- ings. Ramona, a mother of four boys, Bret 16, Pat 14, Roger 13, and Bart 12, is married to Whoop-Up rodeo announcer Bill Holt. They make their home at Lolo, Mont, where they raise quarter horses and have the only herd of Texas Longhorn cattle in Montana. Ramona is a graduate of Boseman University and holds a bachelor of science degree and a PhD in biological statis- tics. She is also one of five women in the western United States who holds a master of science degree in fisheries. Ramona works about 12 ro- deos a year in the capacity of secretary. The rest of her time is spent running the household and assisting husband Bill in their various business ventures. The hours are long, and the work is plentiful for a rodeo secretary, and it could he a highly disorganized state of confusion without the devotion to duly as is often displayed by Ramona Holt. ions and criticisms of the oper- ation. Somewhat surprisingly, there are very few. One well-known lady-about- town, Joan Waterfield, com- plained of a lack of seats around the fair "where older types can sit down." She also thought there should be a pub- lie-address system to announce i when and where an event was I going to be held. Otherwise, Joan thought it was a great fair with a real earnest effort to make it rele- vant. Evelyn Osaka suggested the fair should put the midway un- der a giant tent "so its not so hot." She likes the displays and the coffee-house and thinks the only thing different this year is that the rides are in slightly different locations. Her sister, Janice Osaka, said she came to Whoop-Up Days every year for no par- ticular reason. She likes look- ing at people but not the boys! This is the opposite of Peggy Blayone and Yvonne Dunkley who come almost every day so Public meeting Tuesday on recreation vehicles TO SYMBOLIZE FOND MEMORY Choose wisely the monu- ment to honor your loved ones.

That, and going on the rides is how they have their fun. None of the boys interviewed admitted to coming to watch girls but Bob Manning did say bo liked to win things. So far this year he has won a para- chute of some description, and a squirt gun. Bob thinks the fair is a bit better this year with the addi- tion of a few rides and his only complaint is losing too much money at the game booths. Hugo Kerber, a farmer from Park Lake, guessed the fair was "good" and he especially liked to look Inrough the agri- culture displays. Mrs. Albert Olson, who moved to Lethbridge from Win- nipeg, was viewing the fair for her first time. She thought everything was "very nice and I wouldn't change a thing." Mrs. Olson thought it com- pared well with the fair held every year in Winnipeg even though this one doesn't have a Barnum and Bailey.
