COWBOYS AND COWGIRLS A STATE FAIR FEATURE Cowboys and cowgirls, all of them expert riders and lasso throwers, are going to give an extraordinary exhi-i bition at the Indiana State Fair dur- ins the week of Sept. 5, on the race track at the grandstand in the after - show in the coliseum. The con-1 gress" of riders from some of the most noted ranches of the western cattle country, including a number . . , -of daring horsewomen who were . broup:ht up" in the saddle, will give exhibitions in trick riding. Roman standing races and trick roping, Leonard and Mayme Stroud, who 1 ave won the championships at a number of "round-ups' in the far west. will show their skill as trick rop- ers and fancy riders. Another is 1 Heat rice Kirnan of Rocky For.l, Colo., j ne of the best trick horsewomen of : the western plains. Tommy Kirnan. 1 known far and wide throush the cat-..e ranch country as a roper, will give exhibitions in lassoing in which he will toss a loop TO feet in diameter. Kirnan will also ride in the Roman 1 standing races, when his mounts will be the same pair of broncos with ' which he won the championship race at Garden City. Kan. Most of the riders are from the famous 101 ranch shows and some of them were with the Buffalo Bin and Pawnee Bill wild west shows. The "headliner" is Leonard Stroud. an1 his most spectacular stunt is to crawl under a galloping horse and regain his seat in the saddle from the opposite side. Mayme Stroud won the world's cowgirls championship in the rontest held at Chicago a year ago. The exhibition is expected to be one of the big hits at the coming Indiana aSr- AUTO SHOW AT STATE FAIR The show of 1922 motor cars at the Indiana State Fair, which opens Sept. 5, will be limited in size only by the capacity of the big Manufacturers' building.
