Buddy will bi sttn in action at tht Critliy r*dto al Island Grove park July 3 nd 4. (Continutdfrom Pigt 1) trick horse, with him to Greeley and will also entertain with trained dogs. Clown in Dual Pfrsonility The rodeo clown, when he steps Into the arena in his striped shirt and baggy trousers, becomes a dual personality. Like the clown in the circus, he Is there to entertain. Unlike the clown of the big top, he is there as a foil. Life-saving is his mission in the Brahma bull riding events. Throughout the show, the rodeo clown goes through his work. Like his kindred soul of the big canvas op, he works on new acts and new antics to add sparkle to his performance. Brahmls Show Clown's Diring But it's the Brahma bull riding that brings out the real daring of these Papliaccios of the rodeo arena. That's the time to walch the clowns if you would- appreciate their courage and importance. The Brahmas hold an everlasting trudge against people. Left alone, they'll turn on a fallen rider and do their best to gore or trample him. Pickup men, such as those who help the rider down in bronc riding, are of little value in bull riding. The Brahmas won't let the horses in close enough. So the clowns do the life-saving stint. You'll see them move in on foot to distract the bull and gi\e the cowboy a chance to dismount and reach safety. A rider often takes an awesome breath-jarring slam when thrown and the clowns must get the bull away from him and keep the furious animal busy elsewhere Until the cowboy is rescued. . Add Thirds To Sriew They taunt and tease--and with the funnyman's natural flare, they add thrills to their deadly serious performance. The crowd enjoys it, to often without realizing just how Important the act is to the man who just left the animal's back. Theirs is a business that requires much study. Bulls are individualists. No two react alike. Like a great pitcher who knows the strength and weakness of the batters he'll face from day to diy, the rodeo clown must know the peculiarities of hundreds of rodeo bulls. One miscue, a moment of for- (etfulness as a clown lets a bull draw tantalUingly close, and the clown may go to the hospital. The taunting and teasing has i long range purpose, too. Bulls Hlvt Mimorits Bulls have good memories. They keep thinking of the clown in his ridiculous short and biggy pants. And the clown becomes the No. 1 target just the moment the bull is free of the man on his back. It's no wonder a top rodeo clown knows the most important part of his audience is made up of the participating cowboys. To pass muster, the clow-n must he a great foil in a serious act--while being funny! GOODFELLOW AFB, Ttx. -- Stcond Lituttnant Slulrt L.

Muiei. M-year- old American archaeologist, on a chirte o' trying to smuggle antiquities out of Egypyt by air Thursday night. Musei U kt-- Ir dim Hill!. Cola. lie wai taken into custody at the Cairo press was splashing reports of his discoveries in the bate of a newly found pyramid some 49 centuries old. An Egyptian official said Muses was detained by cuitoms officials at Cairo's International Airport when they found be had "four j b a g s full of unlicensed antiquities in his possession." Other rriics, plus in unlicensed pistol and $4,000 in currency which hid not been declared under Egyptian monetary regulations were found in a search of Muses' home, the official sa,id. The Cairo newspapers were reporting the discovery of a 150-foot square pyramid baie and sarcophagus of a 13th Dynasty Egyptian king at about the time the archaeologist was being prevented from leaving Egypt by plane. Muse headed an American team of archaeologists digging at Dahshour, 16 miles south of the famous pyramids at Giza, for about four months. When reporters went to Dah- shour to check reports of the find they encountered a scene patrolled by armed guards who refused to let them into the diggings. Under Egyptian law all antiquities fO'"id in Egypt are the property of the state and a special license is required to export them. Every find is carefully registered and put under control. Conviction of "smuggling antiq uities could bring a penalty of two to three years in prison. American Consul Larry Boeder was present when Muses was questioned. I went to see that there was no persecution 'during the ques ioning. and there was none," said Boeder. "There were no loaded questions. It was very fair. The question is whether Muses was guilty of criminal intent or simply ignorant of the law regarding antiquities." He said the U. S. embassy is not planning any protest or intervention at present The most important items found in Muses' h»£« (b» Ksyjti»n official said, were "four covers belonging to canopic jars." These jars were used by the ancient Egyptians to preserve the intestines of the deceased and usually were buried with the mummy in the tomb. The press reports quoted Musts as saying his team, upon reaching a massive 9-foot long stone sarcophagus under the pyramid base, found thieves had opened" a hole in the sarcophagus and looted it of everything except the jars. Muies was quoted as saying each jar bore the name of the blocks that had formed the laic of the ISO by ISO foot pyramid, Muses laid. Underneath they discovered i 1C foot corridor leading to three room i, the'contents of which are cot yet known. The rooms adjoin the burial chamber where the lareophagui «as found.

The Public Health Service announced Thursday that the study will start July 1. The county is located on the southeastern Colorado plains. It is designed to help develop more effective and economical methods of providing modern public health services to people in Uie less populous areas of the country. The study will be extended later to other counties in the Great plains area. The service said this area was selected for the study because there are few local health departments there, it has a widely scattered farm population, and farm incomes have been affected by drought and other severe weather variations. The Kit Carson study will involve interviews with more than 1,500 families. Data from this and later surveys will provide a basis for an appraisal of rural health needs and development o{ practical ways for meeting them.
