McCulloch goes to winning team: Kennedy and Johnson

November 15-18, 1960 Gatesville was preparing this week for a standing-room-only crowd at Friday night’s bi-district football game with the Brady Bulldogs. “If it’s good weather they’ll be running over,” said Brady Supt. C.A. Reynolds. Five hundred tickets have been sent to Brady. They went on sale Tuesday morning, and by noon almost half had been sold. “We’ll get rid of all of them,” Reynolds said. The Gatesville Hornets, champions of District 17-AA, are untied and undefeated and have an awesome record: 307 points in 10 games. They have allowed their opponents only 41 points. Brady’s Bulldogs have a 9-1 record for the year, scoring 246 points while giving up 99. Gatesville has been ranked among the top 10 AA teams in the state all year, and this week the Hornets were holding down the No. 5 spot in the Dallas News poll. Brady, listed at one time during the year and then dropped after a loss to Stamford, was tied with Freer for 10th. The game was attracting state-wide attention this week, mostly because of Gatesville’s record and Brady’s role as “defending state champion.” Gatesville and Brady officials met in Goldthwaite Saturday morning to complete arrangements for the game. The site already had been decided (in Gatesville) under rules of the Interscholastic League. Brady must return the game since Gatesville was in Brady last year (Brady won that one, 42-0). Representing Brady in the Goldthwaite meeting were Reynolds, coaches K.Y. Owens and Kenneth West and school coordinator E.O. Martin. Gatesville has five boys returning from last year and one (Byron McClellan) who made it as a sophomore. * * * Patrolmen on job, Gatesville warns Gatesville has a friendly tip to Brady fans going to the game Friday night: Watch those highway patrolmen! Alfred Hopkins, manager of the Gatesville Chamber of Commerce telephoned here this week, reporting that “fans coming form Marlin last week got 40 speeding tickets, and they didn’t feel very kindly toward Gatesville.” It wasn’t Gatesville’s fault, of course, but Hopkins said he just wanted to tip off Brady fans to drive carefully so they can enjoy the trip without getting a speeding ticket. * * * Cooler weather gives break to deer hunters A cool wave moved in Tuesday night, giving a break to deer hunters for the opening of the season Wednesday. Roddie & Company already had received 105 deer ‘and a few turkeys’ by Thursday morning. The hunters are having good luck,’ said Harold Keim. ‘We know of several big parties which haven’t come in yet. But it’s cool enough that they won’t have to hurry.’ Thirteen deer were in storage Thursday at the Mayhew & Jordan ice plant. Patrick Carson of Midland brought in the first deer to Roddie & Company about 9 a.m. Wednesday. It was a six-pointer weighing about 70 pounds. He had been hunting with L.C. Underwood of Mercury, who brought in one about the same size. John Bradshaw of Brady had one of the best, a 10-pointer weighing 106 pounds. First with a deer at Mayhew & Jordan was Mrs. Billy Glasscock of Brady, arriving about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday. With four points, it, too, weighed about 70 pounds. Mrs. Shad McVay was reported to have killed the first deer on the Rutherford Ranch east of Brady, a nice buck that was bagged shortly before sunrise Wednesday. * * * 9 children left as mother dies A 34-year-old Brady mother died Wednesday, leaving nine small children, ranging in age from 13 years down to four months. She was Mrs. Janie Pina Moreno of 1401 South Elm. Born Oct. 4, 1926, in Lohn, she had lived in Brady since 1936. She and Adan Moreno were married June 2, 1942. Ill with cancer, Mrs. Moreno died at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in Brady Hospital. Rosary was recited Wednesday night at Wilkerson Chapel, and funeral services were held at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at Guadalupe Catholic Church, with burial in Brady Cemetery.
