Bob caught a cal in the scramble at the fair two years ago and plans to try his luck again this year. Now a strapping six-footer, young Miller figures he won't have as much trouble putting his halter on a cai£ if it happens to be as frisky as the last one he wrestled. "That was the orneriest calf I ever had," Bob said. "He jumped the fence and ran into the crowd. And when I had him tied in the stall, he used to jump right into the manger." .ter a year under Bob's care, the animal was comparatively gentle. He let Bob lead him at the show last year but Bob said there were times when the steer got to "feeling his oats" and was hard to manage. Appropriately enough, Bob named him Ornery III. It wasn't his first brush with a "bull-headed" steer. He had raised two others, calling them Ornery I and Ornery II. Despite his Greta Garbo person- ality, Ornery IH was no slouch when it came to eating. When Bob took him back to the county fair last year, he copped second place (winning $40 for Bob) in the show for the 1952 scramble calves and won a blue ribbon in the 4-H live- stock show. He also won a $5 bonus for Bob, having gained an average of 1.84 pounds per day since he was caught the previous year. With his prize money Bob made a down payment on a saxaphone which he now plays in the school band. The call scrambles are sponsored by the Walsh County Livestock Association. There will be two scrambles during Fair week (Oct. 25-29). The Future Farmers of America scramble will be the 26th and the 4H scramble on the following day, Oct. 27.
