Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Bob Phipps' final ride spurs him to victory By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Bob Phipps waited until the final bull ride of the day at Vauxhall Saturday, saw what mark he had to beat and went out to beat it. Phipps tapped out on a spinning, high kicking Reg Kesler bull called Eight Ball and scored a resounding 80 points to win the bull riding. The Marshal, Sask., bull tamer pocketed for his first place finish. Up until Phipps came along Bob Kartell of Strathmore was in the lead with a 77 but had to settle for second place. Jim Freeman, currently in the lead in the bull riding in Canada, marked a 69 for third spot. Calgary's Bob Robertson was fourth with a 68. Dave Griffith, an amateur saddle bronc rider from Pincher Creek, showed both the pros and the amateurs what a winning ride looks like. Griffith spurred out a 64 in the amateur bronc riding and grabbed that division, and then, not satisfied with that win, moved into the pro ranks and took Silver Tip out for a 72 point ride and the championship in the open bronc riding. The Pincher Creek boy took home for his amateur win and an additional for beating the pros. Knotted in second spot behind Griffith were veteran competitors Ivan Daines of Innisfail and Duane Bruce of Calgary. Both men garnered 68 points. Dale Albrecht was next in line as the Trochu rider turned in a 67 point performance. Dough Flanigan, the talented transplanted Australian now calling Madden home, proved to be the class of the bareback section. His 70 point performance astride No Return was easily the best of the day and earned him in first place money. The real story in the bareback section was the bucking of the Kesler horses. Moonshine and Hat Rack, both world champion calibre horses, shed their riders with ease as did other top horses like Willie Rock and Big Horn. Allan Hern of Bindloss managed a 62 in second spot in the rigging event while Jim Solberg of Sunny Nook, Alberta, was one point back in third. Taber's rodeoing vet, D. C. Lund, who was ushering around three representatives of the Black Welsh Cattle Society from Wales, showed his guests how to wrestle a steer. Lund dropped his animal in the winning time of 4.4 seconds and stopped at the payout window for his cheque totalling Lee Phillips, the big Strathmore dogger, was second with a run of 5.4 seconds while Ben Hern of Bindloss recorded a time of 5.9 and Mason Cockx was fourth with 6.5. Bill Reeder, reigning Chinook amateur roping champion, showed the professionals he is a man to be reckoned with on the pro circuit as well. Reeder won his second CRCA rodeo calf roping title this year when he roped and wrapped his catch in the winning time of 10.8 seconds. Unfortunately the packed grandstand didn't see this quick time as Reeder went in the morning's slack. He banked for his 10.8 seconds' work. Butch McLean of Bassano was in second spot along with Caroline's Neil Callison. Both men had identical 11 second runs. Three time Canadian roping champion Jim Gladstone was next in line with 11.4 seconds. Joy Brown of Granum, wife of National Finals saddle bronc rider Bobby Brown, took home by winning the barrel racing with a time of 15.9 seconds. Francis Church of Calgary was second with a 16.2 second run. Lee Phillips of Carseland won the entertaining wild cow milking scramble and the first place money and Kevin Rockabar of Medicine Hat scored a 61 to grab the boys' steer riding championship. BEHIND THE CHUTES CRCA president Bob Robinson was in attendance helping behind the chutes most of the time bull fighter Mickey Bagnell did an excellent job keeping the bulls off downed riders the robust clown came close to catching a horn on more than one occasion Doug Flanigan was named the all around champion because he was entered in the dogging Warren Cooper was behind the microphone timers were Doris Van Cleave and Judy Kesler the show was a smooth running, fast paced affair typical of Reg Kesler rodeos Arnold Leth and Clark Sloscher were judges.

WE HAVE MOVED BURROUGHS BUSINESS MACHINES LTD. Are Now Located At No. 4 LOWER LEVEL-PRnFFSSiONAL BUILDING Corner of 4th Ave. and 8th St. South FOR SALES OR SERVICE PHONE 327-7577 Postal Address P.O. Box 416, Lethbridge The latest information on can be yours, free of charge We have a very important and informative booklet which we think will interest you. And it's free of charge. It's ail about the disease of alcoholism. Experts tell us that it's one of the finest things ever written on the subject. But we don't need to be experts to understand it. Its 42 pages are written in simple layman's terms so that we can all clearly grasp its meaning. It would be great if every thinking Canadian could read this booklet. It's written for everyone, even those who have no problem with alcoholism and just want to learn something about the disease. And, of course, it's also written for those who, through no fault of their own. may be alcoholics and are unable to control the amount or extent of their drinking. Anybody with a friend or relative with this serious health problem will also find this booklet to be an invaluable source of down-to-earth, factual information. "Alcohol Alcoholism Problems. Programs Progress" was written by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, both of the United States. It was published under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Health. Education and Welfare and was printed originally by the U.S. Government Printing Office. The booklet firmly establishes that alcoholism is a disease and not a behavioural defect or moral weakness. It makes clear that the problem is not one of drinking but of drunkenness and not of alcohol but of alcoholism; It further recognizes that the cause or causes of alcoholism are not yet known and that as of now there is no known cure for the disease, even though it is often treated successfully and its progress halted. SUBJECTS COVERED Thfs immensely readable and informative booklet covers a broad spectrum of subjects. They range from the earliest recorded history of. man's consumption of beer, wine and spirits to the most recent and advanced" scientific thinking and the never-ending search for new knowledge. It pursues such subjects as understanding alcohol and its effects, problem drinking and alcoholism, the origins of alcoholism, overcoming alcoholism: diagnosis, treatment and prevention: legislation, organization and action and other related subjects. PART OF A CONTINUING PROGRAM Because this booklet is so important and so timely, and because its message is as relevant to Canadians as lo citizens of the United Stales, we believe that it should be widely distributed throughout Canada. We decided, therefore, to do something about it. After distributing 5.000 copies, which we purchased from the U.S. Government, wo obtained per- mission from that Government to print in Canada as many more copies as we require and to arrange for translation to French.
