Some 20 head of bucking horses, gathered in parts of Nevada and northern California, were herded into Susanville yesterday, and a round-up of steers, cows and calves is under way for the second annual rodeo of the Future Farmers of Lassen Union High School and Junior College to be held May 4th at the Susanville fair grounds.
Fifteen events are scheduled for the afternoon’s program, which last year attracted visitors from all parts of this and adjoining counties.
Prizes ranging from $12 to S150 have been offered for winners in the various events.
In charge of the affair is a committee composed of William Ramsey, president of the Future Farmer unit, Leo Chappuis, Glenn Blickenstaff, Paul DeWitt, James Davis, E. F. McCarthy, Paul Metz, Julian Mapes, Albert Garate, Robert Dunn, Howard Grant, Leo Fain, Verne Fuller, Laurie Reuck, Charles Ball and Ralph Blosser.
Supervisor Tro Emerson of this district has a crew of men at the fairgrounds, leveling the arena and preparing the track for racing.

The edifice will cost $34,000 the aichitect estimates.
