Reeder finished second in the roping at the National Finals Rodeo at Edmonton, a mere three seconds behind champion Lome Wells. The LDS Father and Son Banquet is slated for January 11 at the Lethbridge Community College. 1974 was Reeder's first year on the professional rodeo circuit, after a successful stint with the Chinook Amateur Rodeo Association. He was the Chinook circuit roping champion on two occasions. Besides competing in the calf roping he is also a tough competitor in the steer wrestling event. Reeder has also competed in the riding events but now concentrates fully on the two time events. Relatively new to rodeo, he started competing while attending university at Bozeman, Mont. Reeder has already established himself as one of the best in the business. He also attended school at the LCC in Lethbridge, Montana State and Utah State. He currently operates a ranch on the outskirts of Cardston. Tickets for the father and son banquet, which is open to all members of the community, are available for apiece, at Stubbs Pharmacy and Dougs in Lethbridge.

Japanese horse players are fanatics By JOSEPH DURSO New York Times Service NEW YORK "I've been to Japan seven times, and I miss Joe Dimaggio was saying as the jet airliner lifted off from San Francisco and headed for New York. "I told the Japanese six years ago that they were maybe 10 years from reaching major league levels if they didn't expand their baseball teams and dilute the talent. And now it's happening. "They have always wanted to meet and beat our best teams, and they don't like it if we send less than the best. Our teams can't fake it over there any more. When we started going over, we didn't lose a game the first three years, though the Japanese finally tied one. I remember one day I had pneumonia and was on the bench. But I pinch-hit with two outs in the ninth inning and hit a home run that tied the game. Then we won it in the 10th. "But that was 20 years ago. Now the Japanese teams are much stronger. Not quite Big League, maybe Triple- A-Plus. The thing is, though, that some of our teams have been diluted by expansion and now they're only Triple-A- Plus. So, either way, the Japanese are finally reaching up to Major League levels or Major League levels are slipping back to them." He didn't single out the New York Mets; iut he didn't have to, because the Mets have been discovering the same truth in the Orient during their one-month tour of Japan. iThe tour will end this week but not the international struggle for "Major League levels" and Major League Despite the spiraling inflation that is changing people's choices around the world, the postwar generation is still flocking to the ballparks, race tracks and offtrack betting shops. And for the United States, which is threatening to export professional football, basketball and baseball along with grain, the message grows clearer; the marketplace is getting crowded. In Japan alone, where land is too valuable to lavish on country clubs, there are only 700 golf courses (as opposed to in the United It may cost to join a prestige club anyway, so although a million golfers go into action on weekends, many of them have never been on a golf course. Instead they head for the local driving range on Sunday, pay 85 cents for a box of balls and start socking them into screens. Yet, Japan has at least one pro tournament and imports worth of golfing equipment as the No. 1 overseas market for the United States. It also has 10 million skiers, of whom crowd the railroad platforms in Tokyo each weekend for a six-hour ride north to the 450 resorts and 900 lifts. But by November, nearly all the rooms in all the hotels on northern Honshu Hokkaido are booked for the winter. At the baseball stadiums, the fans politely return foul balls hit into the stands, nobody brawls in the aisles, the public-address announcer is likely to be a woman and games are called after three hours. Maybe that's not "Major League" behavior by our standards, but the Mets have played before few empty seats for a month, Sadaharu Oh makes in salary plus another. 000 in endorsements and people pay up to a seat to watch a fifth-place team from America. When the Japanese held the Winter Olympics two years ago, they spent on freeways and other projects around Sapporo, just opposite Soviet Siberia. When three pitchers were found guilty of having "thrown" some ballgames for bribes five years ago, they wre banned for life from either amateur or professional baseball. And when the country's 800 sumo wrestlers stage their 15-day tournaments throughout the year, National Television blankets the scene. But for Westerners who translate sporting fervor into cold cash, few things in Japan pass the test the way horse racing does unless it's the Pachinko Parlors where peo- ple feed yen into pinball machines for "gifts" that range from cigarettes to groceries. At the tracks, which operate only on weekends, they feed yen into the parimutuel win- dows in amounts that would spin the heads of horseplayers at Aqueduct. Last year they bet on horses, about 45 per cent of it at the track and 55 per cent at the offtrack shops, which have been doing a landslide business since 1950. On the first Sunday of this month, they bet and about of that went through the nine offtrack shops in Tokyo and the 10 in other parts of Japan. Not only that, but a quarter-century of offtrack betting has not cut into attendance or wagering at the tracks, regardless of what's been happening in England and the United States. "After the oil said Motohiko Ito, one of Tokyo's senior racing experts, trotting out a diplomatic phrase, "our inflation became serious and Japanese business syndicates stopped buying horses in America. They are still buying stallions in England and France. The Japanese Racing Association normally doesn't allow foreign born horses to race here, except in special cases. They want to encourage the breeding of Japanese horses. "But even with inflation, the people still support racing. Baseball is the No. 1 sport for the pros and sumo is next, but racing still draws more money. We used to have the daily double but had to stop too many people wanted to bet and it became a bad scene. Now we have combina- tion bets; you pick the first two horses in either order. But nothing more exotic than that. Some women bet, but it's so crowded at the windows that it's not safe for women." "There's no telephone betting downtown, he said. Then, clinching the point that Japan was really reaching the Major League level of sporting life, Mr. Ito quickly added: "but we're experimenting with credit cards." Habs slam North Stars 9-4 Riseborough praises Bowman MONTREAL (CP) Doug Risebrough did not enjoy the prospect of playing in the minor leagues. But the 20- year-old rookie centre for Montreal Canadiens said his recent stint with Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League helped him a great deal. Risebrough scored his first National Hockey League goal and assisted on two others as Montreal Canadiens slammed Minnesota North Stars 9-4 in the only NHL game Monday night. "Al MacNeil is a helluva Risebrough said of the Voyageurs' pilot. "He got me prepared.'' Oilers like their new home By The CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oilers have com- pleted their first World Hockey Association home stand at their new Coliseum without a loss and without a crowd of less than The Oilers' fifth home game Monday night, the only sched- uled league game, was a 5-3 win over Winnipeg Jets before a crowd of 11.583. That gave the Oilers a total home attendance of for the five homes games, including two sellouts of 15.326. It also extended Edmon- ton's winning string to seven games after two opening losses on the road. Thus, the Oilers have the best percen- tage in the league at .778, although they are fourth in the Canadian Division. Division-leading Toronto Toros have played seven more games than Edmonton which was held up by late comple- tion of the arena. The Toros. with 11 wins and five losses, are third best on percentage with .683 while New England Whalers. 9-4 on top of the Eastern Division, are second best with .692. Two goals by rookie Mike Rogers led the Oilers. Ken Baird. Rusty Patenaude and Doug Barrie added the other Edmonton goals. Bobby Hull COUGARS RECALL THREE CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cougars of the World Hockey Association recalled three players Monday from their Long Island team in the North American Hockey League. Recalled were centre Joe Hardy and defencemen Larry Mavety and Jim Watson. All were with the Cougars earlier this season ANDY CAPP scored twice and Lars-Eric Sjoberg got a single goal for the Jets. Joe Daley started in goal for Winnipeg but was hit in the ribs by a hard shot from Baird in the first period. Ernie Wakely replaced Daley and made 36 saves in the last 45 minutes. Veteran Jacques Plante was in the Edmonton goal. Tonight's WHA schedule has Houston at Indianapolis, New England at Chicago, and Van- couver at San Diego. Orr, Espo a hot pair MONTREAL (CP) The two-man punch supplied by defenceman Bobby Orr and centre Phil Esposito becomes more apparent when a study is made of their scoring efforts on behalf of Boston Bruins this season. Orr and Esposito lead the National Hockey League's in- dividual scoring race with 35 and 31 points respectively. But Mel Pearson back at work SASKATOON (CP) An indefinite suspension of coach Mel Pearson of Flin Flon Bombers was ended Monday by the Western Canada Hockey League. The league ruled that the four games Pearson has already missed will serve as his suspension. He was suspended after pulling his team off the ice Nov. 8 in a game with Kamloops Chiefs. The league said he had pulled his team off on three different nights. statistics released by the league Monday illustrate the complete contribution of the two men. The Bruins have scored 80 goals in their first 18 games and Orr and Esposito have had a hand in 66 of them. But more noteworthy perhaps is the fact the pair don't always have to be on the ice together to be effective. Orr has assisted on only eight of Esposito's league- leading 16-goal total, while Esposito has gained assists on only six of Orr's 14 goals. Although he holds the record for most goals in a season by a in both" 1970-71 and 1971- is the earliest in any season that Orr has reached 14. Esposito. who won the scor- ing championship in 1973-74 with 145 points, is slightly behind his pace of a year ago when he had 21 goals and 43 points after 18 games. Esposito has yet to record a three-goal game this season, while Orr has already chalked up two. Steve Shutt, Jacques Le- maire, Yvan Cournoyer, Bob Gainey, Serge Savard, Guy Lafleur, Murray Oliver and Larry Robinson completed the Montreal scoring. Lou Nanne, Henry Boucha, Bill Goldsworthy and Murray Oliver replied for the North Stars. "I think I'm skating much better than I was before I went Risebrough said. "I missed half a year last season with a leg injury. There are little things about the game that you lose. You have to play to get them back." Risebrough, selected from Kitchener Rangers of the On- tario Hockey Association Ma- jor Junior series in last summer's amateur draft, started the year with Montreal but was sent to Nova Scotia Oct. 26. He was re- called along with right winger Mario Tremblay last Wednes- day after Canadiens' captain Henri Richard broke an ankle. Risebrough was in a first- period fight with Minnesota's Dennis Hextall and the youngster, who had five fights while with the Voyageurs, ac- quitted himself well.
