By GAUKY ALLISON NANTON Warren Cooper long-time voice of rodeo Canada, was honored by .home town of Nanton and more than 800 friends and well- wishers Saturday night. Featured speaker was Mr. Cooper's life long friend, fel low rancher and rodeo onthu siast Allie Streeter. He related many tales concerning both his own, and Cooper's younger days. Streeter was joined at the head table by fellow speakers Alex Johnson of the Lethbridge Historical Society, Calgary Stampede president Ed O'Con- nor and rodeo greats Herman Linder and Harold Mandeville. Nanton mayor, George Wolsten- holme, was the master of cere- monies. Also at the head table were many of the Cooper family's friends and acquaintances. Among them were ex chuck- wagon champion driver Dick Cosgrave; Peter Lougheed, Al- berta Conservative leader and Lougheed; Canadian Rodeo Cowboy Association presid e n t, Malcolm Jones of Vauxhall, and representatives of the Alberta Auctioneers Association. Born in Calgary in 1902, Mr. Cooper moved to Canton with his family later that same year and has resided there since. As a lad he showed an inter- est in sports, excelling as a runner and enjoying success as a Jockey. All the while he was developing an interest in rodeo. In 1917 he started his an- nouncing career in rodeo at Nanton using a megaphone to inform the crowd of the happen- ings. Today, of course, he docs his work with elaborate electri eal set-ups. It was in. 1MO that he te- camc the announcer of tht world famous Calgary Stam- pede, a job he's held since that time. Among his most cherishec memories are the rodeos he of- ficiated at for the British Royal Family, the most memorable being the 1958 show presented before Princess Margaret in Cal- gary. "Doing Expo 67 was also a great he said. Wan-en Cooper has seen al most all the top cowboys to compete in the rodeo arena. Out of this fine array of talent he singles out Herman Linder and Bill Linderman as two of the best all-round cowbo'ys. "They could do more things well more than anybody else I've he said. His choice as the top bronc rider is "the late Pete Knight Ji the early days of rodeo prior to 1940, and after that Marly Wood." Turning to rodeo stock, Mr. Jooper again divided the his- .ory of rodeo up into the pre- 403 and post-Ms. "Midnight must have been the >est in the early days, after all he bucked then! all off." To- day he feel's Red Top, a horse owned by Reg Kesler, is a very impressive animal. He terms today's stock as "professional implying they only buck fora certait length of time, and on set days, The old bucking horses lie says, were brought in off the ranges and turned out with a rider. "Some times they'd buck, sometimes they'd run into anc over the fences, you'd never know what they'd do." Warren feels rodeo has pro- gressed but should not stand pat. He'd like to see rodeo schol- arships presented to budding young riders. "There is a gap between the end of the boys' steer riding, age 14, and the start of a riders entering of professional events. There should be something be- tween for them to develop their talents." On the subject of rodeo clowns Wan-en felt Wick Peth is per- haps the best bull. fighter. But in the area of clowning, enter- taining and picking up the slack spots he feels Slim Pickens, now a well known movie and TV personality, was the best at lis trade. Besides his many years in ro- deo Mr. Cooper is also well- aiown throughout the west as an auctioneer and a rancher, making the 25 Brand famous in his area. Highlighting the evening was he presentation of a leather- mund guest book of the ban- quet to Mr. and Mrs. Cooper by Tom Stewart, president of Nanton Booster Club, origina- tors of the dinner. Presentations were also made by the Stayely Rodeo Associa- tion; Imperial Tobacco Products Limited; the auctioneers associ- ation; the CRCA; the Calgary Stampede Association and nu- merous others. Mrs. Cooper also received a number of gifts, among them a dinner ring from the Nanton Booster Club. The dinner program stated that "Nanlon's Our Town-and Coop's Our and they cer- tainly showed tliis Saturday night.

It doesn't make sense to put anti-freeze into your radiator if a tiny unnoticed leak in your cooling system lets it all run out. That may not be too serious back East, where real winters just don't happen. But it can be disastrous out here, so we've devel- oped a new "Prestone" Anti-Freeze formula that will protect your car under the severest conditions. And it won't run out on you at sub-zero temperatures. First, "Prestone" Anti-Freeze can actually protect your car down to below zero. Secondly, if a minor leak develops in your cooling system, the new "Prestone" anti-leak formula will seal it completely, in seconds. And finally, even if your car is old, don't worry about additional rust and cor- rosion building up in your cooling system because it simply can't happen. In fact, the new "Prestone" anti-leak, anti-rust, anti- corrosion formula is so effective, put the Union Carbide guarantee right on the can. This winter, ask for real "Preslone" Anti-Leak Anti-Freeze, instead of some imi- tation. Or get a can and put it in yourself. We won't run out on you when it's forty below.
