Part of the area that is. 1 have a complex. To my way of thinking rodeo Is not a sport and the sight of a bunch of grown people playing "Cowboy Boy" Is ridiculous. Like I said before, however, I'm prejudiced. I don't even like country-western music. To me the definition of a sport Is an event of some type In which men, (or women), compete against one another. Rodeo does not qualify under this description. In a rodeo men do not compete directly against men. They compete against an animal. In some cases the animal wins, in others the man. This would classify lue event as an exhibition. It Is true that In the end one contestant does emerge as top hind but he achieved this distinction by beating an animal, not a human. This is a very small matter, hardly worthy of mention. The real proof of my whole theory Is this: Have you ever heard of cowboy boots being referred to Is "athletic equipment?" A former local boy who has been overshadowed by a super star is Tom Von Ruden. Von Ruden, if my memory serves me correctly, graduated from Notus High School In 1962. His (rack career at Notus was worthy of mention but nrt spectacular. In his senior year Tom won the state Class B mile but did not break the existing record. Si the districtcontest he set a new Class B record with a 4:31.8 timing. At regional .1:37.5. ft was at Oklahoma State University that Von Ruden began to flower. The cinder coach at OSU switched Tom from the mile to the 880 and he was very successful at that distance. It was after college that he returned to the longer distance. He now runs for the Los Angeles Strlders track club. Not much has been heard of the local boy because of a gentleman named Jim Hyun. Recently at the National AAU track and field meet at Los Angeles Von Ruden finished behind Ryun when the Kansan broke the world's record. Tom was clocked at under the magic four minute barrier which probably makes him the first Idahoan to ever accomplish the fete. Last Tuesday the Nolus Ace won the 1.500 meter event at an International track meet in Zurich, Switzerland. With the Olympics not too far in the future we may be hearing more from Mr. Von Ruden. Skiing Requires Good Good driving of the tow boat Is necessary to the success of every trip on water skis--but equally Important is the boat itself. Rig your boat like the pros and ycur skiing will Improve. A boat that leaves a smooth, flat lake Is the best for water skiing. Most tournament beats have a fairly wide, long, shallow hulls that slip through the water with a minimum of turbulence. Make sure the outboard Is big enough for the job. High horsepower motors (60 h.p. and above) are usually best for serious ortournament skiing,but t well-tuned but less powerful motor should give the average Utah Boat Pilot Heads Entry List CALDWELL-Brlaa McDougall of Brlgham Clly, Ufah, the overall defending champion, heads the list of some 200 boat drivers who will be competing Saturday and Sunday in the American Powerboat Associa- tion regalia on Lake LowelU Racing will be on the Lower Dam in the 25th annual Lake Lowell regatta.

(UPI)- Hard-runnlng Jimmy Taylor, the newest member of the fledgling New Orleans Saints, says he's eager to get into his new uniform and will join the rest of the team Saturday in their San Diego, Calif., training camp. Taylor, grinning from ear to ear and shaking every hand in sight, announced his contract Thursday in a news conference with Saints owner John W. ·Mecbm Jr. and Louisiana Gov. John McKeithen. Mecpm said the Saints gave up their No. 1 draft choice next year and another player to the Green Bay Packers for the 31- year-old Taylor, who played out his option with the Packers last season. Neither Mecom nor Taylor would discuss terms ofTaylor's new contract. "That's between Jimmy and me," Mecom said. Mecom did say the contract was similar to (lie one Taylor had with Green Bay and that it was "longer I nan one year." The terms of the deal between the Packers and the Saints reportedly fell short of what Green Bay coach Vlnce Lombard! wanted for Taylor, who gained more than 1,000 yards rushing for five consecutive years. L o m b a r d i had reportedly- asked for three first round draft choices. Mecora said NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle "helped a little" in the deal and "he had been kind of z. mediator" between the two teams. Mecom said there was no money involved in the deal, Taylor said his nine years with the world champion Packers "were satisfying and Rookies Honored CHICAGO (UPI) - Rookies Tommy Nobis of Atlanta and Johnny Roland of St. Louis will be honored along with each of the eight statistical leaders at the first annual National Football League Players Association awards banquet July 9. Nobis will be presented the Outstanding Defensive Rookie Award and Roland the Oul- standlng Offensive R o o k i e Award at the affair which will be highlighted by the presentation of the Byron R. White Award to the player who had contributed the most to his team, his league and his country. enjoyable" and quickly added he is looking forward to playing with the Saints. Taylor, a former AlI-Ameri- can at Louisiana State University, said he thinks the Saints will do better than the Atlanta Falcons did in their first year. He indicated that he and his old running-mate Paul Hornung, whom the Saints picked up earlier, might give the Saints a shot at the NFL title. ".We have an excellent chance of winning the NFL," said Taylor, "the whole ball of wax." Saints head coach Tom Fears said he is happy to have Taylor on the club and said the Taylor- Hornung punch "should be a Mg boost to our team." "I was at Green Bay for five years while Jim was playing there," said Fears, "and noone knows better than ! his value to a football team." To offset the loss of Taylor from their championship backfield, the Packers turned to the Los Angeles Rams and picked up fullback Den Wilson, captain of the Southern California team which defeated Wisconsin in the 1963 Rose Bowl. OGDEN.Utah- Bill Rate's two-run triple in tne first (lining off loser Earl Arbogast started Ogden's league-leading Dodgers on their way to a 9-1 victory over the Caldwell Cubs Thursday nighl. Larry Burcharl scattered six Caldwell hits over the first seven, innings to pick up the pitching victory. Rainer also scored in Ogden's three-run opening frame, and the Dodgers added another run in (he second. Cub errors allowed five unearned Ogden runs in the seventh as the Dodgers put the game out of reach with 9-0 lead. Caldwell's only run came off reliever Jim Bunnworth in the ninth inning. Singles by Tom Whelan, pinch-hitter Jim Neal and Tony Hernandez loaded the bases. A sacrifice play by Ed Bruksch produced the run. The loss snapped a three- game Cubs' winning streak and dropped them lo third place in [he Pioneer League, 2'/j games behind Ogden. Wbeland collected three hits for Caldwell and Hernandez added two as the Cubs out- hit Ogden, 10-7. Other than the opening two innings Arbogast pitched effectively until he was relieved in the seventh by Charles Pollock, Pollock gave up three hits in Ogden's five-run seventh, while Lloyd Kingfisher hurled i hitless eighth for Caldwell.

And check with your dealer to make sure the outboard's propeller Is the proper one. An Ineffective prop will wipe out any extra horsepower advantage. A good towing hitch will make the Job that much easier. There are many models on the market today, almost all of which do an excellent job of keeping the tow rope high enough above the water (about 40 Inches) and providing a steady pull from one central direction.
