Dogs parents good coaches, York says

January 12-15, 1960 Brady coach Chuck York told the Ol’ Houn’ Dawgs Monday night that the Bulldogs received “some free coaching at home this year.” “I want to thank the mothers and fathers of the boys. If it weren’t for the coaching done at home, we couldn’t have done much in the two or three hours a day we spend with the boys. There was never a time when we didn’t get the best of cooperation from the parents.” Looking around the BHS cafeteria where 50 to 60 Houn’ Dawgs, their wives and members of the Mothers Athletic Club had gathered Monday, York marveled at the crowd. “It’s not hard to have a crowd when there is a big game coming up, but the football season is over now, and I think you Houn’ Dawgs have done a tremendous job. “There isn’t much to this business of being a Houn’ Dawg. You meet a few times a year and write a check for your dues, and argue a little, usually over nothing’ “But something good comes out of it, just being here. You have given your time and money to help these youngsters get off on the right foot. You are a real asset to these boys, and you have the self satisfaction of helping them make their mark in the world.” Dawg President John Moran introduced Mrs. Noel Haynes, president of the Mothers Athletic Club whose members were guests of the Dawgs Monday. The Dawgs voted to hold a chili supper for the junior high football boys after the basketball season ends Feb. 12. In making arrangements to elect the “best back” and “best lineman” from the 1959 Bulldog seniors, the Dawgs couldn’t agree whether to present the boys with a trophy or the usual gold football charm. They finally agreed to let each member designate his choice when he votes on the “outstanding back and Lineman” in balloting by mail. * * * Angelo motorist gets ticket here ‘and likes it The Brady Police Department received a letter this week from a San Angelo motorist, “the kind we like to get,” said Police Chief Dorman Gibbs. “Last Saturday, I was traveling through your city in route to Austin on business,” wrote the San Angelo man. “After going through town and near the edge of the city limits, I picked up speed too soon and was stopped by Mr. (Wallace) Bode. “I pleaded guilty to this charge because I have no reason to believe he was mistaken.
