The Saskatoon cowboy hooked up with the 1973 Canadian champion bucking horse, Zone Along, and spurred him vigorously in perfect rhythmn for a whopping 85 points. Claypool also finished in a sixth place tie in Uie bull riding. Three of Canada's best bronc riders, Tom Bews, Bart Brower and 1972 world champion Mel Hyland were knotted in third place with identical 73 point markings. Ivan Daines and Duane Bruce split fifth and sixth place money with twin 67s. Bews' second place finish in the bronc riding, combined with a third place finish in the steer wrestling and a fourth in the calf roping event earned the Pekisko cowboy the all around title. He won for placing in both a timed and a riding event. Mel Hyland also pocketed a hefty pay cheque when the Peaked too early Johnny Miller, defending champ, nearly missed cut.

But Toronto's George Knud- son. who shot a 75, had a two round total of 153 to qualify for the third round. Hubert Green, whose latest of three tour victories came less than a week ago at Phila- delphia, tied the Open record over this course with a three- under-par 67 and saved his place in the tournament with a 148. Larry Ziegler shot a 68 and Frank Beard fired a 69 and wound up at 146. Bert Yancey also had a 69. Player started the second round with a one-stroke lead over the field, fell six strokes off par through Uie first six holes and then started scram- bling back. He refused to be shaken by- shot into a waste basket and a triple bogey seven almost before he warmed up. "You can't afford to be shaken." he said. "This course would shake you right into the ground. This is a round of golf I will never forget as long as I live. What I did today was a miracle." Palmer, whose last major victory- was the 1964 Masters, said a victory in the Open here would bring a new life to his life. "It would mean a great deal in a lot of ways, but more for a personal reason than anything I could gain in business." he said.

Ivan Daines of Innisfail had a 59 in third spot while Doug Flanagan of Madden was next with a 53. Only five bareback riders recorded scores as the Reg Kesler and Calgary Stampede horses proved a tough combination for the competitors. D. C. Lund of Taber made it two wins in a row on the Southern Circuit in the steer wrestling. Not satisfied with his first place win at Vauxhall last week, Lund went out at Brooks and dropped his animal in the winning time of 4.9 seconds.

Bob Wilson and Dale Rose, complete with tie and cigar, all turned in 68 point rides to finish well back of the leader. John Dodds and Brian Claypool had a thing of their own going as they tied for sixth with 66 points apiece. Once again it was Jerri Duce in the barrel racing. The pretty blonde from Granum rounded the course in the winning time of 15.7 seconds, leaving Frances Church of Calgary in her dust, five tenths of a second back Keith Gower of Edmonton grabbed the amateur saddle bronc event with a mark of 58.
