Many of these were exhibited at a dozen or more shows. Out of the mass came more than 1000 new champions Few people not actually engaged In the ; dog., show game realize cither the expense of showing dogs on big time cli cults or the expense of aclunll) putting on a . how. About half the exhibitors are owners who come forth with one youngster a year, and find out just how hot their joung blood is The other half hhe professional: handlers to condition and show (logs and will send dogs to a dozen thp\vs hi the hope .of winning a championship * • • Super Stars of the Sliows There are a number of great canine campaigners'. 1 .which have • been seen more or less legularly at-dozens : of shows lor- several years These dogi already are champions What they are seeking is best ol bleed, ot^best of group <foi Instance, spoiling dogs, sporting ' hounds, w 01 king dogs, toys, _elc), or best hi show.

Torchy 'Pedcn and Champion Hits to Be Good In .order to win a championship a dog must defeat all other dogs o( Its sex in enough shows to gain the 15 points necessary for a championship award. There are five regular classes at a dog show. The winners of these fiye classes meet 'In a wumers' class, and'only the winner of this class- Is entitled to championship points. Thus, a dog'may win dozens of blue ribbons and beat hundreds of 'dogs without gaining a title. • Championship points are award- .ed' according to the number of dogs actually competing in the show. A schedule Is arranged according to the dog population of each breed in various sections of the' country. Where the breed population Is .heaviest, it Is hardest to gain points^ And no dog can gain a championship without winning shows at which enough dogs are entered to give four or five points, at least.once in his career. Nor can he win a title If.his points are gained Under only one or two Judges; Dog breeds which are the most numerous in breed members have the hardest requirements. Thus, cocker spaniels, Boston terriers, and Scotties may require 25 or more dogs of i sex to compete before five 'points are awarded.

(UP)—Final tribute was paid to Midnight, the most famous horse ever .to come out of a bucking chute at a rodeo, when a group of cowboys erected a marker over a lonely grave on Ihc Colorado plains, inscribed with their own home-made epitaph. Cowhands on the McCarthy & Elliott ranch showed the dynamic little black horse tiitring his car- e*r. collaborated in writing the epitaph, it reads: "Under this sod lies a great bucking hoss. "There never lived a cowboy he couldn't toss. "His name was Midnight; his coat lilack as coal. 'If there is a hoss-heaven, please, God, rest his soul." Midnight was the arch-enemy of- the top "waddles" who ride tht nation's rodeo circuit to earn the! living "working broncs." He was ridden only once In 14' years i which.he came bucking out of the chutes from one coast to the other The time he failed to toss hi. rider was after he became,, old. The epitaph and new headstone were decided upon by ranch hand (luring their talk's on long eve nlngs about tlie "buckingest liors. of them all." They recalled tha Midnight was a really great slw horse without a trace of vicious less.
