    Mr Fain,

    I am looking for a copy of a picture that was in a story you did for the Western Horseman magazine, November 1971. The story was about the 1971 NIRA Finals and the picture was of the Champion Women’s Team from Tarleton State College. Can you give me any information about this? It would be greatly appreciated….
