SPEED CONSUMES OIL
Cars which are driven at sustain
ed high speed for a long distance re
quire more attention to lubrication
than those driven the same distance
at moderate speed or with occasional
stops, according to the Emergency
Road Service of the Oregon State
Motor association. Sustained high
speed generates considerable heat
in all moving parts and this heat
consumes lubricants at a rapid rate.
Pendleton August 28. (Special)
Where records in bulldogging, rop
ing, bucking and racing have been
made at the Pendleton Round-Up
grounds, another lightning event is
being staged it's the race to com
plete the new $35,000 concrete, fire
proof grandstand for the , coming
show, Sept. 11-12-13-14, to replace
the structure destroyed by fire Aug
Victory is already assured, and
Pendleton promises to its thousands
of visitors adequate, comfortable
seating, as the result of day and
night work by a crew of 90 men
Funds for the new grandstand came
from the people of Pendleton, who
also received some assistance from
generous neighboring friends.
In addition to actual cash, these
friends have loaned to the Round
Up pioneer vehicles including stage
coaches, buckboards, wagons, phae
tons and countless other old-time
paraphernalia for the Westward
Ho! parade, to substitute for the
equipment lost in the recent blaze.
The parade, Friday morning feature
of the Round-Up, will wind through
Pendleton streets at 10 a. m., with
5000 taking part, including Indians
in tribal splendor, and whites garb
ed in the picturesque fashion of
frontier days. The Indians will
include the 2000 camped in the In
dian village at the grounds.
In every respect, the Round-Up,
now in its thirty-first year, biggest
and oldest show in the Pacific
Northwest, wll be up to the usual
standard of excellence, declared the
Total purses are $8500, of which
$4000 will go for the four major
events: bulldogging, steer roping,
calf roping and bronc riding, for
which Rodeo Association of Amer
ica points are awarded.
There will be 60 head of bucking
stock, including those supplied by
Moomaw & Bernard, of Tonasket,
Wash., and McCarty & Elliott, of
Chugwater, Wyo. Sixty Texas long
horns will be used for the dogging
and steer roping, and 22 head of
calves for the calf roping event.
As usual, the Round-Up is proud
that it is the only show in the
world today that offers to rodeo fans
the chance to see two types of buck
ing contests the chute method and
the snubbing method. Chutes are
used for the world bucking, while
for the northwest bucking horses
are snubbed and saddled in the
Happy Canyon, night show of the
Round-Up, staged up-town, has
spent $11,000 in improvements this
year, including new seating facili
ties in the grandstand, and a new
maple dance floor, best in eastern
Oregon, in the pavilion.
