When Homer Wood had got along toward the end of his list of averages late yesterday afternoon, it became very obvious that the young Prescott rider would never be passed, and within a few minutes after the last bronc had been- busted, Lester Ruffner, the area director, waltzed Ritchie out in front of the crowd, gave his right name arid title and attached the many-barred gold medal to the panting and proud bosom which will be so adorned for one year from date. Whereupon Ritchie suffered the penalty of greatness. The experience from which rank upon rank of brave doughboys 'shrank in France was his. No sooner had the medal been safely pinned on than the late competitors in the bronc busting arena crowded around and Bill Wheeldon varied the monotony of mere hand shaking by kissing the hero on both of his weather-rusted cheeks- Cheyenne Kiser, who relinquished all chances of regaining the medal he won in 1320 'when Bed Bug stung him the day before, consoled himself by winning the bareback championship for the third successive year, thus establishing a new mark to shoot at, for no three-time or even two-time winner has ever performed in the difficult and hazardous arena of the Proscott Frontier days. . , THE ROPERS-SET-UP MARKS TO SHOOT AT ' Roping this year was of the fast est sort, and when it was announced that Perley .Morris of Phoenix and his brother, Logan Morris, had ac quired the $1,000 first prize for the bull captivating, and had actually roped and tied three critters in the astounding total of 96 seconds, there were exclamations of amazement from the old-time cowhands. Lee Robinson, the Hackberry wonder, who was in everything and trying all the while, annexed the world's calf-tying championship with a remarkable average of 23 3-5 sec onds for three calves. He won $500 in this event, and' there were few others on the program that Lee didn't try for and not so many in which he did not win something. CROWD NOT UP TO FRONTIER STANDARD The last day crowd was smaller than usual by several hundred. But the entertainment on the final day! was of a superior quality. It seem ed as though the saddle buckers were bent upon making up for the; lack of casualties during the first three days, and they reared, in a man ner more sensational and; spectacular than ever before. The 'Bolshevik, oh which was found Mjster Lee Robin son, was perhaps -the meanest, pf the lot, and anybody! will1 say 'that Lee did himself proud. Harry Henderson on the hurricane deck of Dry Farmer donated the crowd the more - sensational ride, right up to the grandstand fence, with dust and clods flying and horse and man just a-workin it for all that both were worth. Ritchie Lewis got a remarkable ride on Red Fox, than which old-timer in the bucking arenaj there are few if any horses than whicher. Doc Pardee, a rider who has held the medal, .and for whom can be said a thing not applicable to any other in the immediate vicinity that he has never been disqualified got fourth place behind Ed Hendershot, who followed Harry Henderson. There were some who figured Hen derson and Pardee to class above Lewis and Hendershot, but it was the board of three judges that rode closest to the men and had the best opportunity to observe the conduct of men and beasts. And their awards, made by vo'ting, were what Homer Wood used to figure out the final averages. There was a consolation bucking event for men who had ploughed the arena with their unwilling and pro testing frames, for those who had lost reins, stirrups or the opportun ity to spur twice in the shoulders during and while the first five jumps were being executed by the horse. This was accumulated by "Walter Long, who got his K. O. on the opening day.. Walter was wealthier by 100 bucks because, the, bucks oflT his consolation horse, the said Chuck EUNICE BEL, MM LEAD SASIG STAKES (Associated Presa Night Wire) NORTH RANDALL, Cleveland, July' 5. Eunice Bell, Tom Murphy',s Peter Volo filly, had no trouble in. winning the Sasig sweepstakes for the year-old trotters, the feature of today's Grand circuit. Murphy took the juvenile out in front in both heats and the result never was in doubt. Walter Cox's Marge, the Great finished second in both miles, but the rest of the field never was close up. Wagon, were satisfactory to the judges. SPORTS GALORE FOR FINAL DAY CROWD Nothing was wrong with the last day program, and the world can be told. While the arena was full of racing men and horses, flying ropes, calves, bulls and steers in action and the multitude of other entertain ing things and persons at a wild west contest. Lieutenant Alexander Pearson, who "did" the Grand Can yon by airplane, rode majestically- pverhead, having come over from Fjort Whipple to sec the show. He drove the same ship with which he conquered .the canyon a De Havi land with a 400-horsepowcr Liberty motor. Pearson and his mechanician, geant Arthur Juengling, in the course of a flight of 2 hours, 45 minutes from the target range, circled the post, the town and the grounds and took a little side, trip to the Roose velt dam, where, he said, there was less water impounded than there was when he last viewed that place from above, a few weeks ago.

A break in the ranks of republican members of the house wavs and means committee who drafted the tariff bill came today when Repre sentative Frear of Wisconsin made public a minority statement ' charging his colleagues with disregard for party pledges and assailing them for proposing ''fundamentally indefen sible provisions and rates of unties. The statement will be filed along with the majority report of the com mittee which is expected .to. be sub mitted to the house tomorrow. Mr. Frear's attack while predicated on the dye control provision,' em braced many other features of the bill. The Wisconsin member de clared the rate of duty to be ex cessive in scores of instances and added that they would lead to ex actions by "trusts and monopolies," thus increasing the burden the people must carry. Mr. Frear referred to the argu ment that protection for the dye makers was necessary for national defense and asked why it was neces sary to assume that the nation would be thrown into a great war and at the same, time "to grant practically ! exclusive rights of dye mannfactur- ,ers to a recognized monopoly."

TOLEDO MANAGER RESIGNS "TOLEDO, Ohio, July 5. William "Derby Day" Clymer has resigned as manager of the Toledo club of the" American association. Hortons lived together until about February 20, 1920, according to The record, and then Mr. Horton secured an annullment of the marriage by the Maricopa county superior court on the ground that Mrs. Horton had married within a .year following her divorce. The supreme court held that the present laws did not prohibit the practice of divorced persons being married in other states to avoid the restrictions provided in Arizona. It suggested that if the legislature dis approved of the decision in this case. the next legislature should enact leg islation explicitly providing "that marriage contracted within another state by parties who have left this state for the purpose of evading its laws and who return and live here. shall be of no force in this state." The decision of the superior coflrt annulling the Horton marriage was reversed with instructions that the action be dismissed. HARDING FELICITATES (Associated Press Night Wire) WASHINGTON, D.
