Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE 16THBRIDOI HERALD Saturday, May 26, 1973 Cardston rodeo honors RCMP Ivins, Thierman leaders in opening round action By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer The second annual Cardston amateur indoor rodeo served as a vehicle to honor the RCMP who are in the midst of cele- brating their centennial. The scarlet tuniced police were presented with aerial pictures of the town and were special guests at the rodeo. On the rodeo end of the agenda two Lethbridge cowboys, Tom Ivins and Len Thiermaii, were leading in the timed events at the close of the first night of competition. Len's time of 14 seconds flat in the calf roping made him the early leader in the one go round, three performance rodeo. Vul- can's Richard McNiven was next in line with a clocking of 14.6. Sons take over where fathers had left off INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Two racing drivers whose fathers crashed to their deaths against the concrete walls of the In- dianapolis Speedway will be gunning for victory in the famed 500 Monday, but with dif- ferent motivations. "Dad never won the 500 al- though he had a great Gary Bettenhausen, 31, said to- day." "He left three boys, every one with a legacy to achieve where he failed. "Sure, I'd like to win one for my father." Bill Vukovich Jr., 29, golfing .partner and closest friend of 'Bettenhausen. finds it impos- sible to gird himself with the same inspiration. 4 "Don't get me wrong, I loved aiy father and he loved me." JVukovich said. "But my fa- ther's racing record has hung over me like a blanket through- put my career. "People always are asking ,why I don't race like my father. I suppose in a way I have re- sented it. "I'd like to win to prove I am 'e racer in my own right-" Tony Bettenhausen was auto racing's national champion in 1951' and 1958. In every In- dianapolis race between 1948 and 1959 he led at one stage or another, finishing second once, ninth once and fourth twice. He never won. He was the favorite in 1961. but on May 12 he crashed in a tunexip and died, leaving three the oldest at 31; Merle, 28, and Tony 22. Merle lost his right arm in an acci- dent last July at the Michigan International. Tony is a rookie. The elder Bill Vukovich be- came a racing legend. He won the 500 in 1953 and 1954 and was leading in 1955 when his car crashed, sending him to his death. Minor baseball The Braves had an easy time of things Thursday night as they crushed the Cardinals 11-1 in a Norcrest Little League encounter. Merlyn Bunnage fired a four- hitter striking out eight batters for the win while Dave Field suffered the loss. Grant Weins led the Braves at the plate stroking a triple. double and a single while Lau- ren Leroux rapped two dou- bles and a single and Allen Smith three singles.

Belair, a stand-up fighter who showed some good foot work, drew blood from Atyeo's nose in the first round and won handily against an opponent who dis- played a tendancy to brawl. The only knockout of the night was provided by Claude LeClair of Montreal, winner of the 165-pound middleweight di- vision. LeClair, who forced the fight from the start, caught Bill Gariepy of Richmond, B.C., with a left hook to the jaw at of the first round, sending him to the canvas for the full count.

"It's as good as I can said the 33-year-old veteran. Nicklaus didn't make a bo- gey. He hit every fairway for the second day in a row. He hit every green. Only once was his approach shot more than 25 feet from the flag. He had six bird- ies. He lipped out two other birdie putts, missed an eagle by an inch and left two other CANADA'S NO.
