to the Hall collection.
Prices of the art purchases for
the collection were not revealed,
but Sam Waugh, trustee of the
Hall collection fund, said there
was $9,000 in available funds that
could be used to buy art this year
for the collection. Each year's
purchases are determined by the
income from a fund left by Mr.
and Mrs. F. M. Hall.
Exhibit Director Norman Geske
said the Eakins portrait was

from the artist's estate and rep

he was working most devotedly to
suit himself." The painting has
been called "the most important
acquisition" in the art exhibit in

to Geske, representsthe first such
piece in the entire Hall collection.
"It possesses a deeply contained
feeling rather than being a con

subject," Geske said.

MOST IMPORTANT ART ACQUISITION . . . "Mrs. Samuel

"Throwing the Bull" is not just
an expression for the contestants
of the rodes.
One of the most dangerous
events in the modern rodeos is
the "Bulldogging" contest.
One of the interesting facts
about the bulldogging is the con -
testants have to rely a great deal
upon a partner. This partner is
used to keep the steer close to
the bulldoggers horse so he can
drop to the horns of the steer
and throw him to the ground.
Now back to the chutes and
the start of the contest. Here, as
m calf roping, the contestant is
working in fear of a penalty.
The steer is allowed to cross a
line in front of the chutes before
the rider and his partner may give
chase to the animal.
If either of the riders or their
horses cross the line ahead of the
steer a ten second penalty is added
to the final time of the contest

jthe actual dogging of the steer.
A fast horse is required to carry
the cowboy up even with the steer
so he can drop from the saddle
and "dog" the steer. Here is
where the partner comes in. He
is required to keep the steer be-
jtween his mount and the horse

When the cowboy is finally

contestant must either roll the
animal over or let it stand up
