Ilyland marked a 65 in the rain on Thursday night and the score held up until Berger came along. Berger of Norman, Oklahoma, had the 1970 world rides recorded in the riding events over the three for his victory. Third place in the saddle bronc riding was split between Canada's great Kenny McLean and Bobby Brown from Texas. Both recorded rides of 64. Berber's 80 alop Moonshine was the best vide seen in the rodeo's hard luck cowboy as he missed his champion Sam Hamilton pocketed says El II circuit this year in any of the riding events.

Oster was the top jockey while Gooch was the five-day meet's top trainer. Suitor, Gibb a Toronto television station Saturday night and offered the NHL version of Everything Vou Wanted lo Know About Bobby Hull and the Canada-Russia Series But Were Afraid to Ask: l. The Golden Jet can't play for the Canadians in the September series because he signed a contract with a World Hockey Association learn instead of coming to terms -with Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL. 2. He can't play for Winnipeg Jets of the WHA because he still belongs to the Black Hawks, contract or no contract. The NHL contends that the option clause in its standard contract binds a player to his team when the contract expires, 3. Campbell is confident that the Hawks will be successful when they seek an injunction in an Illinois court, probably within Iwo weeks, that would prevent Hull from playing hockey for any other club and 4. Just in case the court doesn't see it their way, Hull will be barred from joining the NHL players on the Canadian team because "there is no reason why we should put on parade the showpiece for the other side." DEFENDS CLAUSE In the TV appearance on To-ronlo slation CFTO and in a subsequent interview, Campbell defended the clause in the agreement setting up the Canadian team that required players to sign NHL contracts before reporting to training camp. Of the 35 players invited to join the team, Hull and defence-man J. C. Tremblay of Montreal Canadiens have signed with WHA players represent a tremendous expense to the National Hockey Campbell said. "Is there any rational reason we would want to help the World Hockey Hockey Canada, the organization o[ government, business and sports figures sponsoring the national learn, has been urged to intercede with the NHL on Hull's behalf by a number of Canadian hockey fans including Prime Minister Trudeau. Campbell's advice to Hockey Canada was to play it cool. "I don't want to predict anything in the nature of a he said. "I just hope no course of action will be recommended that will be impossible for the people involved." AGREEMENT CAME FIRST The agreement selling up the leam, including the stipulation that players sign their NHL contracts was drawn up by the NHL and Hockey Canada three months before Hull and Tremblay joined the WHA. "I[ hockey Canada asked us to reconsider Ihc Hull question il would he Ihe end of Ihc Campbell said. "They have declared Iheir support of our agreement and they're nol going lo ask us lo change il." The NHL had made a "tremendous sacrifice" in providing players whose salaries lolalled for the eight-game scries at a time when they might be drawing crowds io NHL prc-soason exhibition games, Campbell said. Some governors felt public criticism of the NHL for the Hull ban showed ingratitude. "They feel Ihc NHL has supported hockey in Canada, by providing its players for Ihis series and by contributing financially to minor hockey for years and received in return is abuse." Campbell acknowledged that his office has received some copies of a printed petition demanding that Hull be allowed to play but said "they go right in the barrel the way they come Iran the post office, in a 65 while Dale Rose and Brian Whitlow followed t h e others in the riding events and split third and fourth with a pair of 64s. Berger picked up some loose change in the bull riding, tieing for fifth with a 63 with two other riders. Berger's earnings in the three riding events totalled Arnold Haraga did his steer wrestling Saturday morning in the slack and apparently the former Canadian all around champion enjoyed his early outing as he dropped his catch in a winning time of 4.1 seconds and came away richer. Don Helmig also went Saturday morning and took second spot with a time of 4.8 and strengthened his lead in the race for the Southern Circuit doggin title. Dillon, Montana's D. J. Smith was sitting in third .spot when it was all over with a time of 4.9 seconds one tenth better than Ben Hern in fourth. The top four times in the steer wrestling were all run off in the slack and under fairly good conditions Saturday mom-ing. A DeWinton calf roper, Sam Hamilton, also found the slack to his liking and look the calf roping title with a time of 11.8 seconds. The world's all around leader this year, and last, Phil Lyne of George West Texas was only one tenth of a second slower in second place. Kenny McLean was third with a 12.1 while Taber's Ed Sparks took home fourth place money with a time of 12.3. Bonnie Lemaire was the overall winner of the gals barrel racing, recording a two run time of 31.7 seconds. Marion Gramith was right behind in second. Bonnie won both go rounds. The wild horse race winner was the team of former Canadian champion Ernie Dorm. The top money winner at the Whoop-Up Days rodeo had to be chuckwagon driver Dennis Dorchester. Dorchester pocketed over the three nights of racing, driving the championship Lee Price outfit from Calgary and also the fourth place team sponsored by Time Airways of Lethbridge. Dorchester had a total running time of and received for his winning effort. Second, with a total time of seconds on the track, was the Evan Bodrug Ranches of Calgary driven by Ed Als-tott. Third position was held down by the Jack Curzon rig of Calgary with veteran driver Lloyd Nelson at the reins. BEHIND THE CHUTES Conditions were good Saturday night in sharp contrast to the mud-howl-infield Thursday and Friday Alan Hern turned n a fine ride in the 54 holes played two weeks ago at Lelhbridge. Alexander, who made his ]0lh team, was the over-all leader with a six over par 432. Graham was 433, Silverberg 437 and Souter 441.
