Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 26, 1971------- Top cowboy from Colorado Rains on hand again Saturday By GAHRY ALLISON Herald Staff Action at the 75th annual Whoop-Up Days rodeo drew to a successful conclusion Satur- day night as champions were named in all events. Another near-capacity crowd Saturday pushed the three-day total at- tendance near the mark. A young cowboy from Colo- rado Springs, Colorado, Len- nard Rams, pocketed the most money and was presented with two trophies. He received the El Rancho Motor Hotel award emblematic of the steer wres- tling championship and the all around trophy presented by Herb's Western Wear. Rains' tune of 4.4 seconds in the steer -wrestling earned him and the championship. Hoppy Unger of Coaldale saw Rains better his time of 4.8 seconds, moving the Coaldale contestant into second spot. Kenny McLean bull-dogged liis animal in 5.4 seconds and moved into third spot in the standings. Rains made his win- ning time in a special section of steer wrestlers run off after Friday evening's rodeo. American cowboys also dom- inated the calf roping and sad- dle bronc riding events. Current world all around and calf roping leader, Phil Lyne of George West, Texas added to his leads by taking the calf roping honors and the HaiCo- General Farm Supplies trcphy. Lyne's first night time of 11.2 seconds held up throughout the three nights of competition and he received for his ef- forts. Buzz Peth, Bow, Wash., wrap- ped his calf hi 11.6 seconds and look second place finishing ahead of Sparky Trotter who took 12 seconds flat to tie his liUle change on the Southern Circuit standings, with only the t calf roping lead changing lands as Phil Lyne moved into first, replacing Arnie Johnson The hard luck trophy, don 1 Tpps by Pro( o Brian W lothing but lis horse rea teer wrest lung up in t event Cosgra Despite finishing in third spot in the final race of the Whoop-Up Days chuckwagon derby, the Newall Bros, outfit, with "Bouncing'' Bobby Cosgravo in the driver's seat, had the fastest combined running time of the three-day event and waited off with the championship trophy donated by Perlich Bros.

Brilliant Blue ivins 19lh Killebrew one away from 500 By Tlffi ASSOCIATED PRESS The next home run Harmon Killebrew hits will be a big weight off his shoulders, to say nothing of BUI Bigney's mind. "I'll be happy when No. 500 gets here because it's been bug- ging Kiilebrew and as the big guy goes, so we said Rigney, Minnesota Twins' man- ager. Killebrew ripped his 499th career blast Sunday as the Twins stopped Boston Red Sox 6-2. But it was only his 12th this American League season and snapped him out of a month- long homer drought. The 500-homer plateau has been reached by only nine play- ers in baseball history, the last being Ernie Banks of the Na- tional League Chicago Cubs in 1970. While Killebrew inched to- ward the mark Sunday, Oak- land's Vida Blue closed in on a 20-victory season, winning his 19th as the Athletics trimmed Detroit Tigers 0-1 to gain a split of their doubleheader. The Ti- gers won the first game 7-4. YANKS TAKE TWO In Sunday's other games, New York Yankees took a double- header from Milwaukee Brew- ers, 6-2 in 11 innings and 11-9, California Angels hammered Baltimore Orioles twice, 6-2 and 9-6 in 13, Chicago White Sox beat Washington Senators 5-1 and 9-R and Kansas City Royals beat Cleveland 4-3 in the first game of their twin bill but lost 2-1 to the Indians in the second. In Saturday's play, Kansas City downed Cleveland 6-1, New York edged Milwaukee 4-3, Oak- land drubbed Detroit 7-2, Boston defeated Minnesota 6-3 nnd Chi- cago split a doubleheader with Washington, winning the first 6- 5 and dropping the second 5-3. Despite the homer slump, Kil- lebrew insists he's not pressing for the historic 500 mark. "If you're trying to find out why, I don't know the reason for my said Killebrew. "I can't really say if I'm get- ting fewer good pitches to hit Killebrew drove in a run for Minnesota with a single in the third inning, then capped a five-run fifth inning off former team-mate Luis Tiant with a 386-foot drive with two men aboard, his first homer since June 22.

Veteran observers said the Canadians, who went home loaded down with trophies, put on their best showing in mem- ory. But the sharp-shooting cadets, servicemen and Dominion of Canada Rifle Association mem- bers were outgunned Saturday in the final and most coveted Queen's Prize rifle event. In all, six Canadians made the "Queen's Hundred" who participated in the final shoot, but the best score among them was 286 out of a passible 300 registered by Alain Marion, a Hull, Quebec, policeman. The score put him in a four-way tie for 12th place, six points behind the winner, Mick Stevens, a 43- year-old Oxfordshire farmer. However, Marion's score was only one point off a record for tlie event which had stood for 33 years and underlined a fact that was commented on throughout the shoot by numerous partici- pants, namely, the much-im- proved ammunition provided by the British hosts. ing to Bob Miller. Miller, a member of the Dodgers from 1963 to 1967 when Koufax and Drysclale led them to three National League pen- nants, and now at 32 the dean of the Padres' hurlers, made his comparison after Norman pitched five-hitter in the opener and Arlin fired a three- hitter in the nightcap as San Diego swept a National League doubleheader from Pittsburgh's slugging Pirates 2-1 and 2-0 Sun- day. "Our pitching amazes said the veteran right-hander. "It reminds me of what we had when I was with the Dodgers." "It takes great pitching to hold our team to one run in two games and they have said Danny Murtaugh, Pittsburgh manager.

Jones took time out from his busy schedule as a stock contractor and Canadian Rodeo Cowboy Association president to win the bareback bronc riding tro- phy put up by C. E. French Livestock Ltd. Jones won the second go round with a mark of 71 and won the title on a two-ride total of 143. First go round winner, Ted Vayro, Jones' partner in their Grassland Stock Com- pany, placed second with a mark of 133 on two head. Lynn Jensen of Cardston was in third spot with a total of 130 points. The bull riding honors were split between Rocky Rockabar of Medicine Hat and Roy Dahl from Billings, Montana. They each earned and re- ceived the City Packers tro- phy. Both men had a mark of 74. Hank Abbie followed the pair with a 72 point ride and Ron CMzmasia of Taber was next in line. The Lethbridge Hotel Associ- ation donated a trophy to the ladies' barrel racing champion, Marion Witcher of Miles City, Mont. She had a two-run total time of 32.4 seconds and edged out Greta Robinson of Cowley by two-tenths of a second. Veteran cowboy, Ernie Dorin of Bruce, Alta., won his third straight wild horse race crown at Whoop-Up Days and took home the Canada Packers-Sur Gain Feed trophy.

A live gale of in the Astrodome and posr.ihly one million more watching on closed-circuit television will see the answers unfold first-hand. Although no title is at slake, the fight has taken on all the as- pects of a championship bout, partly because of the pied-piper following of Ali, and partly be- cause bath fighters hope to use this fight to spring to another shot at Frazicr's title.

"It was .04 of a he said. "It takes .25 of a second to think about moving. You're hit before you know it." He joked that he's probably slowed down to .12 by now.
