World's Original Cowboy Rodeo April 24-25

The 52nd presentation of the World's Original Cowboy Rodeo will be offered at Hardin-Simmons Univeristy's Carl Myers Arena April 24-25.

The change from three to two days is a change being implemented by most schools as a concession to the academic schedules, according to Watson Moore, HSU spokesman for the annual event.

Debra Jones, director of HSU's Six Whiite Horse Program, will make her first appearance as Rodeo Manager since being appointed to her position last year.

Another change for the 1998 event is in the starting hour -- 7:30 p.m. Again, there will be no admission charge for either Friday or Saturday night.

The HSU rodeo is the fourth of five events held during the Spring under supervision of the Southwest Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association with Mike Yeater serving as director. The season ends May 2 in Stephenville sponsored by Tarleton State University.

Rodeo Clown Quail Dobbs, HSU's Six White Horses and the internationally famous HSU Cowboy Band will entertain during the show.

Officials are Barney Brehmer and Jimmy Adams, judges; Gerry Byrns and Gerald Shields, bull fighters; Philip Schultz, announcer and Dolly Riddle, show secretary. Terry Walls of Stephenville is the stock provider.
