Feeding program draws 88 entries

October 4-7, 1960 The Chamber of Commerce’s commercial feeding program, for McCulloch County 4-H and FFA youngsters, drew 88 earlier in the weigh-in Saturday. It was the largest total of entries in the 12 years of the program, and among the entries were six girls. No more than one or two girls have entered the program in years past. The boys and girls had their lambs, calves and pigs weighed and appraised for value Saturday at Brady, Melvin and Rochelle. Another weigh-in, for those who want to engage in a short-term feeding program, will be held in January. A.M. (Tim) Jones is chairman of the project this year. Youngsters who complete the program will be eligible for an educational trip next spring. Here are the entries: BRADY Rickie Rodrique, Gene McVay, Mike Lee, Edward Waite, Mike Day, Johnny Bratton, Don Anderson, Clyde Locklear, Zane Sessions, Robert Floyd, Ronnie Kyzar, Jimmy Locklear, Don Miller, Frank Teague, Tommy Lucas, Paul Booher, Sam Short, George Sears, Dennis Ray Short, T.A.

Stamford’s potent offense and ‘eat ’em alive’ defense was just too much’much too much for Brady’s Bulldogs Friday night in Stamford. It was Stamford’s sixth consecutive victory over Brady and the worst’33-8’of the series. Stamford’s ‘firehouse boys’ pushed for a touchdown their first time with the ball, added two more scores in the second period, and from there on out all the Doggies could do was try to hold on. Eventually Stamford just began toying with the Doggies, refusing to punt on fourth down, running the second string, and attempting 33-yard field goals. There wasn’t much the Brady visitors could do about it, and by that time they didn’t have the heart anyway. Not since the state finals of 1957 has a Brady team been defeated by such a margin. Terrell did it then, 41-6. The Stamford ‘jinx’ was part of it, for the Doggies appeared nervous and lonesome in the first half on the unfamiliar field, and the scrambling, skillful Stamford hosts did nothing to make their guests feel at home. This week the Doggies will have the ‘jinx’ on their side as they meet the Belton Tigers here in Bulldog Stadium. It will be the fifth consecutive Brady-Belton engagement, and Belton has yet to win one. Receiving the opening kickoff, Stamford moved down to the Brady 28 and just as the Dogs seemed ready to stop the drive, Stamford halfback Wayne Bates got loose on fourth down and wiggled 28 yards through the Brady defense for a touchdown. Bates was thrown short, however, on his try for the extra points. Bates was Stamford’s most dangerous threat, shifting, reversing and then breaking into speed like a greased pig. In their first time with the ball, Brady’s Bulldogs picked up a first down and then had another on the Stamford 45 when they lost a fumble, the first of a series of unlucky breaks that gradually left them demoralized. Stamford pushed 69 yards for its second touchdown, with fullback Ronnie Gerloff carrying over from the 2. A pass for the points was no good. Like Bates, Gerloff too was hard to handle, and so was Tommy Dodd, a quarterback new to Stamford’s starting lineup. At times, Dodd had the Doggies standing around trying to find the ball. Stamford had seven men on the line against Brady, pulled up tight, and the Doggies had it rough going up the middle. And they had even less luck around the Stamford ends, guarded by Jimmy Haas and Claybourne Clarke. Slowed on the ground, Brady quarterback Charles Reynolds launched an aerial attack and enjoyed fair success. Midway of the second quarter the Doggies had moved to the Stamford 27 when one of Reynolds’ passes, however, landed in the arms of Jimmy Haas. Haas was in the clear and was tasting a touchdown run when he lost his balance and slipped down. But it didn’t matter, for on the next play Gerloff took over the passing chores and pitched one down to Jerry Moritz’and Moritz was gone, 65-yards for Stamford’s third TD. Reynolds was Brady’s busiest man on Friday night, on offense and defense. Time after time he was the only man standing between Stamford and the Brady goal, and often all he could do was grab a shoestring. Several of his shoestring catches, however, stopped certain Stamford TDs. Coming out for the third period the Doggies had renewed fire, but they were due for shock. They couldn’t move and had to punt, and on the first play from scrimmage, Bates shot through on a 64-yard TD run, giving Stamford a quick 26-0 advantage. Stamford’s lineup had been watered down a bit with a few reserves, but that didn’t make the Doggies’ job any easier. Long passes, to Darrell Roper, to Knox Trammell and to Harry Bowden, ate up yardage for Brady, but it was rough going. Fullback Gene Henderson finally plunged over from the 2 and Reynolds passed to Roper for the points. Seconds later, however, Stamford had scored again. Taking over on the Brady 42, Bates and Gerloff drove to the 29 where Dodd then passed to Haas for the TD, making it 33-8. The Doggies still hadn’t given up, and Roper took a pass from Reynolds right down the middle. Roper was in the clear and against any other team it would have been a touchdown play’but out of nowhere came Bates and over-took Roper’a speedy boy himself’from the rear. Neither team threatened again, and in the final 15 seconds of the game Stamford took possession on the Brady 33. Just for the fun of it, Moritz attempted a field goal for Stamford. It was straight but fell short of the goal. But he got another chance when the Doggies drew an offside penalty. His second attempt was wide and short. * * * PERSONAL MENTIONS Step-father dies Fred T. Loest of Americus, Ga., step-father of M.G. Breckenridge of Brady, died in Georgia Sept. 28. Mr. and Mrs. Breckenridge left for Georga to be with Mrs. Loest and to attend the funeral last Friday. The Breckenridges returned home Sunday afternoon. * * * To Dallas Mrs. Richard Moseley will spend next week in Dallas as a guest of her daughters, Mrs. A.A.
