Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June Gotcha! Ben Hern of Bindloss, Alberta swings off his horse Canadian National Finals rodeo in Edmonton in -id gets a firm grip on a steer in the exciting steer November. Steer wrestling will be among the featured nestling event. Ben will be endeavoring to be one of events at the Finals, .e Canadian cowboys who qualifies for the first Slated for Edmonton November 4-19 ianada has National Finals rodeo By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Canada has a National Finals rodeo of its own at long "st. Set up and sanctioned- by .the Canadian Rodeo Cowboys Association, the Finals are slated for Edmonton November to 9th of this year, in'conjunction with the all Stock show at the Edmonton-Gardens. The top 10 cowboys in each-of the five major events, the Canadian standings, and the top 10 girls in the arrel racing, will qualify for the Finals. Also included in premiere show will be the country's top, six amateur saddle bronc riders and boys' steer riders. These competitors will compete on an equal basis, -ith none of their year's earnings counting towards the :hampionship. This is a sudden death rodeo for the :hampionship of Canada over six go-rounds. The go rounds will be compiled on a money won basis with 40 per cent of the purse going 'to the winner of the go and 30. 20 and 10 to the second, third and fourth place 7inishers respectively. The only category where the year's earnings are carried over is in the race for the all around champion cowboy. Money won at the CNFR will be added to the all around winnings over the year with the champion being the man who makes the most money on the year, including the Finals. The bucking stock will be selected from among the outstanding stock in Canada and will provide a good test for the competitors. If there is a tie for the championship on a money won basis at the end of the rodeo the contestant who qualified on the most head of stock over the Finals will win. Total prize money will be with the Finals rodeo committee also negotiating a contract for extensive television coverage. H. Len Perry of Edmonton and C. N. (Chunky) Woodward have been named co-chairmen of the Canadian National Finals Rodeo Commission with Jerty F. D'Arcy of Calgary and CRCA president Bob Robinson also serving on the commission.

CHROME REVERSE WHEELS 8 TRACK STEREO '39 ditri reverst rfiitK FffT 'Tft snisMcnm GUMIHTHD Roughies bank on conditioning, all-stars ready with experience OTTAWA (CP) -While Ot- tawa Rough Rider veterans are banking on conditioning, all-star coach Blackie Johnston is looking to experience to win the 1974 Canadian Football League all- star game tonight. "With the kind of talent I've got there is not much to said Johnston, former Toronto Argonaut assistant coach who is filling in for Ray Jauch. "We're ready and the Riders are ready and there's one thing I can say. it's going to be a helluva game." Jauch, coach of Edmonton Eskimos who lost the 1973 Grey Cup to the Riders, normally would have coached the all-star team. But the lingering dispute between the CFL Players Association and CFL clubs has pushed Jauch and regular Rider coach George Brancato into the background. Don Gilbert, University of Ottawa head coach, has been guiding the veteran Riders through twice-a-day workouts since last week and he says the team is ready physically. Bob McKeown. players representative for the Riders. says: "Look it's this way, the guys have professional reputations and pride at stake and they're not going to shrug the all-star game aside because of the contract dispute. We're going to play to win." However, since the formation of the modern all- star games in 1970. all-star teams have won three of four encounters and have held the traditional edge because of the great array of talent assembled for the matches. Calgary Stampeders were the only team to beat the all- 23-22 in 1972. The Riders lost to the all- stars but Gilbert says this year's team is in better condition and will have the playing edge because the veterans have been working out together for years, in some cases, and have been training longer than the all- stars. The Riders will be without the services of linemen Rudy Sims, Tom Laputka and running back Art Green. The three are involved in a dispute between the Riders and the World Football League Philadelphia Bell. The three want to jump to the new league. The Riders have brought in John LaGrone of Edmonton, Bruce Smith of Hamilton Lancers lose two contests The Lethbridge Lancers dropped a pair of Intermediate Lacrosse, contests to the Edmonton Blues over the weekend, losing 13-7 Saturday and 12-9 Sunday. Saturday, Neil Cunningham scored four goals for the Blues, who broke a 3-3 first period tie wide open with six goals in the second frame. Mike Jackson led the local attack with two goals, with singles going to Francis De Coste. Wally Toraie. Doug Stephens. Albert Dodson and Dave Jackson. Cunningham scored four more goals Sunday as the northern team took a 7-3 first period lead and were never headed. Dave Jackson had three goals for the Lancers while Hank Heerze chipped in with two. The locals got singles off the sticks of Walter Zelinski. Francis De Coste. Dave and Greg Monteith. Tiger Cats and Joe Critdilow of Montreal AlouetU's to strengthen their defensive line. Green will be replaced by Gene Foster, picked up earlier in the year by the Riders. The all-stars are not without their problems. Tight end Peter Dalla Riva of Montreal has been bothered by a bdd knee and is not expected to dress. Tony Gabriel of Hamilton will fill in if Dalla Riva doesn't play. Split end George McGowan of Edmonton has a pulled hamstring and will probably be replaced by Terry Evanshen of Montreal. Guard Jack Abendschan of Saskatchewan Roughriders also is not expected to play because of a knee injury. Both coaches plan to split the quarterbacking duties: For the all-stars, Ron Lancaster of Saskatchewan and Chuck Ealey of Hamilton, and Jerry Keeling and Rick Cassata will share duties for Ottawa. Game organizers say ticket sales have picked up with more than advance Brazil's plans are a secret FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) Brazil and West Ger- many got a chance to repair their suspect soccer reputations today as the World Cup swung into second- round action with four games. Brazil took on East Germany at Hannover in Group A and West Germany met Yugoslavia at Duesseldorf in Group B. Indications were that both matches would be played as tactical draws. For goals, fans would have to look to the day's two other clashes, Holland vs. Argentina at Gelsenkirchen in Group A, and Poland vs. Sweden at Stuttgart in Group B. Brazil, three-time world champion, kept its game plan secret and East Germany re- portedly planned no changes from the team that beat West Germany 1-0 in the first round. West Germany, a 5-2 favorite in the British betting shops, had yet to find the form which two years ago won the European champ- ionship, and its match against Yugoslavia looked like a tailor-made draw. "Safety first" was the slogan proclaimed by West German captain Franz Beckenbauer. The Sweden-Poland match shaped up as the likely thriller of the day. Whatever the result, a record must go. Poland came through the first round with six points, the only team with a perfect record. Sweden survived the round without conceding a goal. Argentina went into the match against Holland without midfield star Carlos Babington. suspended after three cautions. Holland, the surprise of the tournament, reported all fit.
