Tuesday, September 11, IETHBRIDGE HERALD Taber honors are shared, two cowboys steal spotlight By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Oscar Walters and Wayne Akins shared the spotlight at the conclusion of the Taber Kinsmen Indoor Rodeo Satur- day. Walters was named the all around champion, winning the bull riding and placing second in the steer wrestling. Akins took the high point honors as he captured both the team and calf roping events. A bull called Tar Baby helped Oscar earn the bull riding crown as the pair com- bined for a 76-pomt outing. Right behind Walters in se- cond spot was Lenard Morton Carry those games WASHINGTON (AP) -The House of Representatives communications sub- committee approved legisla- tion Monday that would lift the local television blackouts of sold-out home pro football games in the United States. Chairman Torbert H Macdonald took less than 15 minutes to gain the approval of the measure that would ban blackouts on any national televised game that is sold out 72 hours prior to the contest. Last Thursday, the Senate passed similar legislation by a vote of 76-6 Pro football commissioner Pete Rozellc testified last week that if Congress passed definitive legislation banning the local blackouts, the National Football League would not wait for President Nixon to sign it into law but would begin televising the games locally. Macdonald expressed the hope again Monday that the House would pass his bill by the end of the week, urns allowing local telecasts when the 1973 NFL season starts Sunday NEEDS CO-ORDINA'l lUiN There are technical differ- ences between the measures in the Senate and the House which will have to be ironed out in a conference meeting between the two bodies. The Senate measure would prohibit blackouts of all local sports events that are sold out 72 hours in advance. It would be a one-year experiment. The Macdonald measure would ban the blackout only on sports televised under a na- tional TV contract, such as pro football and the baseball, basketball and hockey games of the week It also would be permanent legislation under whch the U S federal communications commission would study the effects of the law on pro sports and report to the Senate and House commerce committees by April 15 The Macdonald bill also would provide civil mjunctive relief if the club does not make the games available for telecasting Dart season of Del Bonita who fell one point short of the winner on Ro Ho Third place money was split between Taber's Philip Van Cleave and Joey Masnyk of Coaldale. Both boys garnered 72 points. Ted Bly, Cardston, the vice president of the Chinook Rodeo Association, beat, Walters out of a double win when he dropped his steer in 4 7 seconds to grab the steer wrestling title.
