GJ Sunday, Nov. 3, 1968 ; y " ' J I ; I I "VI mm 111 PRINCESS AJiNE Princess Anne Eyes A Career AW7 m mm l m m m Mm ' m .rm m mm mm V LONDON (UPI) Princess Anne, 18-year-old daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, may be planning a career as a horse woman, possibly with hopes of :HO AT tTl SAVE $20 Professional Strung Steel Tennis Racquet 97 representing Britain abroad. If so, she will be treading , new ground because Britain's princesses have never entered competitive sports before or tackled such a dangerous one. Her favorite competition is "eventing," a three-part trial ef the horse's obedience In dressage, ability over colored jumps in the show ring, and the courage of both rider and mount in a cross-country phase over hedges, ditches and other natural obstacles. The cross-country section is the dangerous one and tumbles at the jumps are common. At the Olympics in Mexico City, where Britain won a gold medal In the three-day trials, two horses were killed and the bones of several riders broken. This year Princess Anne has ridden her horse, Purple Star, in seven trials and borrowed a friend's horse to compete In a musical ride called the Quadrille in the major "Horse Of The Year" Show. Buckingham Palace has made no announcement of her future since she left school in July but Wendy Oliver, wife of i SAVE $7 20" Convertible Bike Wears Poppin' Hoppies Ik Our Regular Low Discount Price 39.97 Tempered steel frame, Vantage nylon stringing Calfikin-wrapped patented 2-pc. handle with positive permanent interlock, complete-oction face with no dead areas, open throat design, vinyl frame guard SAVE $8 Mitchell 314 Spinning Reel fK' 88 97 Our Regular Low Price 4.49 Catching poppin' boppies it players' aim A hilarious game for the whole family Our Regular Low Price 33.97 Converts from boys' to girls' model; coaster brake, gothic design fenders, slimline tank 97 MM' mm Our Regular Low Price J 3.97 Big line capacity, 2 spools with individual drag Push button spool change, plan-a-matic gears .

Princess Anne's future probably was the subject of much discussion during the royal family's summer vacation at Balmoral Castle In the Scottish highlands. University appears to have been ruled out for the present because the new college year already has started. Objections to a riding career could be raised on the grounds of safety. Fox hunting is the best training for the crosscountry phase of eventing but immediate members of the royal family have not taken ;iart in this sport in recent years because of the danger. Training to meet Interna, lional standards requires almost dally riding practice part of the year, which official duties may not permit, but competitors who have ridden against Princess Anne think she has the ability. They praise her courage jumping nasty obstacles, the fact she has trained her own horse rather than buying one already trained and her performance In the dressage arena, the section where many riders get penalty points.

Purple Star is a young horse which the Princess has ridden this year in novice trials, ning two junior events and five rosettes in adult competitions. She came close to winning her first adult competition at Mlxbury, one of the last events before the end of the season. She was leading after a good dressage test and a clear round at show Jumping,, but was not fast enough across country because she decided not to push her horse across the very muddy fields. So far she has tackled one and two-day trials, not the three-day events such as Badminton which, If she came In the first three, would put her into Olympic class. This year's Olympics bodes well for British women riders because the three-day event team had its first woman member, 20-year-old Jane Bul-Irn, and won despite very bad weather conditions. Women had been left out before because each member of the team is expected to try to finish, even with broken bones, or the whole team is knocked out of the running.
