Texas Girl Says Rodeo Is No Place For Society Girls—She Ought To Know NEW YORK, Oct. 27, (IP)— The cute little girl who almost took the rodeo at Madison Square Garden out of the sports pages and put it in the society section doesn't think glamour and sports are a very good mixture. The 17-year-old Canadian, Tex., cowgirl, ranch-operator and sweetheart of the 14th annual world champion rodeo (as it's modestly billed) is pretty Sydna Yockley. After she got through pitching a calf on its mutton chops she parked herself in the press box and offered a few caustic comments. To wit: "The eight girls brought here to add 'glamour' to the show are all adorable girls and they can all preside beautifully over a tea party but they haven't any business in a rodeo," she said. "And they feel the same way. Beauty and this business"—majestically indicating the garden and its queer mixture of bow-legged cow- hands and pop-eyed spectators — "don't mix. I think it was silly to try." She referred to the eight girls, daughters of, first rank Texas families, who give an exhibition of horsemanship every night and who got more advance publicity than the champion riders. That seemed a little odd coming from the girl who has been dined, headlined and feted and who for 25 days has almost made New York forget its football. But she sounded sincere. Those pretty eyes had picked out some other flaws, too. "The men? I like southwestern men much better than New Yorkers," she said. "These easterners are too artificial." She is pretty certain that rodeo shows, where the smell of liniment is almost as strong as the smell of leather, needs some new ideas, but pretty girls, even if she is one of them aren't the answer.

Huddle Is Presiding Officer One hundred' and forty Sunday Schools from the entire state of Maryland, the District of Columbia and parts of Virginia and West -Virinia were represented at the 13th annual convention of the Lutheran Sunday School Association of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Maryland in Waynesboro, Pa., yesterday.
