Tucson NewsPaper 1936
Have Eleven-Year Record of Work,
Condron, Mullins, Kinney and Marshall Served Through Every Year That Show Has Been Staged in City And Have Had Same Posts Every Season
This is the title which has been bestowed upon the quartet of officials who alone have a 100 per cent record among the many hundreds of’ publlc sirited men and women who during the eleven years of Tucson’s ” La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros” have contributed to its success. Jack Kinney, general chairman, or rodeo boss;. A. H. Condron, secretary; Johnny Mullens, arena director and F. C. Marshall, publicity director, are the four who served in those positons at Tucson’s first rcdeo 11 years. ago, and are serving in those same jobs again this year —and have served in the the same jobs during every one of the 11 years.
The original polo organlzaticn consisted of about .100 members, serving on various committees with Leighton Kramer as president Kramer died several years ago. A number of others have been called by death some moved away While still others had, interests which attracted thelr attention away from Rodeo activities. But the “4 Horsemen” are still in the saddle, and have seen La Fiesta de los Viqueros develop from a mere experiment tov one of the biggest Rodes in North America.
This does not mean that most of the many working for the success of this years show are newcomers. There are many, who haye put forward. their best efforts, but it happens these four are the only ones with 11 out of 11 years.
