Wednesday, March 22, 1950. Rodeo Riders Make Toughest Tricks Easy (Continued From Page One) old, and Shirley, who says she's been riding since she was "yea high," also are quick to point out that It is a long hard road, full of bumps, sprains, skinned shins, and spills before somebody will pay to see the act. And it is hard for most of the trick riders to remember how they got started in the game. Vern uoodnch of Pewhall, 40, can say, however, that his parents were in a Wild West Show when he was a boy and he just naturally turned to fancy riding. ANOTHER old-timer in the game is Don Wilcox of Tulsa, Okla., who has been riding 20 years, and his wife, Virginia, who has been riding years. Of course she started aft er she met Don. There has been just one interruption in her per- iormances. .Light years ago, Donna Jean Wilcox was born. And the Hendricks twins, and Ann Hendricks, will agree with Dick Griffith that there are plenty of rough tumbles in learning to stay aboard two horses while they jump over an automobile. Dick says that a good trick rider is "one who had the guts to take the spills." "Many start, but after a bad luniDje, mey just can t do it again," explains Griffith. "Spills combined with long, constant tnain-ing in basic stunts keep many hopefuls from getting anywhere." ALL AL80 WILL point out quickly that the horse is considered 90 per cent of the act by the people who do it. Griffith claims "one horse in a thousand" can be a good mount for a trick rider, "and he is your best pal. He actually helps you recover when you don't do just right, and protects you every way he can." Naturally Dick is talking about Cappy Lane, a 12-year-old beautifully maned Mongolian chestnut, who seems to enjoy the show as much as Griffith. A genial bunch of riders, none of them, including Griffith, has any intent of retiring. It's like Goodrich says: "Whe the grass gets green and -O TKe Arizona Republic, PKoenix, Arizona CITY REPUBLIC M 4 If -rr Thrills And Spills Combine To Make Phoenix Rodeo Tops For Spectators nun Page JS va V The rule of bronc riding' is to keep one leg: on each side of the animal and your mind in the middle. Something went wrong with the rule at the Phoenix rodeo, for Eddie Akride of Gruver, Tex., is leaving a mean critter named B. O. Plenty over the top. (Republic Staff Photo) the band starts to play, the old urge is there." A CROWD estimated at 2,500 saw the Tuesday show, a fine performance throughout with the cowboys hustling especially hard for the pay-offs for the best time of the first five days. Skinner Smith of Fort Cobb, Okla., grabbed first money in the calf roping at the last minute by tying his animal in 13.7 seconds to beat out the previous best time of 14.4 made by Gordon Davis of Templeton, Calif. Smith took down S428. Davis $321, whjle Vern Castro of Richmond, Calif., placed third for $214 with a time of 16.5, and Jim Hudson of Willcox was fourth in 16.6 for $107.

Ban On Japanese Silk To Be Asked NEW YORK, MarJ 21 (AP) The National Federation of Textiles Tuesday was asked to protest in Washington against the importation of Japanese silk textiles into the United States. j Forty silk manufacturers andj representatives of the silk weaving dyeing, and printing trades in East ern United States met at federation headauarters to discuss ways of combatting Japanese competition. A spokesman indicated the federation would co-ordinate the complaints of various sections of the silk industry and present their case to the proper authorities in Washington. It was said the main complaint raised at the meeting was that United States military government officials in Japan feel they must encourage Japanese economic recovery without regard for the ef fect it has on American manufac turers and labor. tacsoSfsw-rtSf az, r ojml--vvv' v 1 OS St, -S-A s, V Vv N.-C S 1 Coasting down the road upside down on a horse is a novel way of getting somewhere.

Ont., Mar. 21 (AP) "Keep the quads, we'll help" offers poured into the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. O. Hargreaves Tuesday.
