Plans shaping up for July Jubilee

April 19-22, 1960 General manager Korky Steffens outlined plans for the 1960 show as directors of the July Jubilee were elected Monday afternoon. The Jubilee will run three days this year, on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, July 2, 3 and 4. A contest to pick “Miss Heart O’ Texas” however, opens the celebration on Friday night, July 1, being staged again in Bulldog Stadium. Re-elected as directors were G.R. White, Richard Moseley, Fred Hall, Parker Pumphrey, Hicks Campbell, John Sorell, L.J. Townsend, J.D. Morrow, Jimmy Cusenbary, Jack Deaton, Jim Harkrider, Bill Jordan and Jack Wootan. New directors added to the board were Mayor R.M. Priesmeyer, Hubert Moseley, George Dutton, Frank Corder, T. Wood and Gerald Huffman. Mr. White was renamed president of the board: Richard Moseley, vice president; Sorell, secretary; and Charley Darley, treasurer. “Gerald Huffman is working on the parade, and the float will be ready to go Saturday night in San Antonio at the Fiesta Flambeau,” Steffens said. “We think the float will be prettier than last year. It’s the best advertising we could have.” The Big D Jamboree is being brought back this year for a show in the stadium on Saturday night, July 2, and Jack Reams and his combo of Waco, “the biggest little band in the world,” will play for the races and for dances at the Country Club and the armory. “The stock show is really going to town. We’ll have to enlarge the barn at Richards Park,” Steffens said. Two extensions will be built on the north side of the barn. * * * Tetens heads reactivated VFW Post Ernst Tetens was elected post commander Friday night as the L.W.
