A towering statue of a robust woodsman once greeted visitors to the Los Angeles Sportsmen's Show in its early days at the Pan-Pacific Auditorium. It was supposed to be the mythical Paul Bunyan, but it could have been H. Werner Buck, who was somewhat shorter at 6-feet-4 but bigger than life just the same. Like Bunyan, Buck was a giant in his realm. Harry Werner Buck did not create the great outdoors, but he showed millions of people how to find it.

He's already been called one of the world's most beautiful people, an honor bestowed by People magazine. Now, it looks as though he's bucking to be called one of the toughest, too. Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks arrested a suspected vandal Wednesday, helping another officer and concerned citizen wrestle the suspect to the ground and slap a pair of handcuffs on him.

If your idea of roughing it is a night or two at the Holiday Inn, the Anaheim Sports, Vacation & RV Show won't be your idea of a good time. If, on the other hand, you're one of those folks who can't get enough of mosquito-slapping in the great outdoors or bagging your own wild boar, the 24th annual show that starts today can keep you fascinated for hours.

It can't boast Cannes' parade of topless starlets or Filmex's celebrity-studded fund-raisers, but for the past 17 years Anaheim has hosted its own international film festival as part of H. Werner Buck Enterprises' Sports, Vacation and RV Show at the Anaheim Convention Center. At this year's event, which will begin Saturday for an eight-day run, 22 films from as far away as Thailand and as near as Utah will compete for $1,000 worth of prizes in five travel and recreation-related categories.
