Madisonville is Dogs’ first foe Saturday

The Brady Bulldogs will meet Madisonville at 11:45 a.m. Saturday in the regional AA basketball tournament at Texas A&M College. “I don’t know much about them except that they have a 34-4 record,” said Bulldog coach Ed Whiteley. “The record itself, of course, reveals that Madisonville is a classy outfit and has played a long schedule.’ In the second half of the tournament undefeated Buna (35-0) will square off at 1:15 p.m. Saturday against Taylor. The first-round winners then will go into the finals’to decide which team will go to the sate tournament in Austin’at 8:45 p.m. Saturday. All games, plus those in the Class A tournament, will be played in A&M’s G. Rollie White Coliseum. Madisonville won a trip to the regional by whipping Columbus Tuesday night, 60-38. Buna won its bi-district game, 58-35, over Dayton. Taylor eliminated Rockdale in the bi-district Tuesday. “I’d sure like to win those two games Saturday,” Whiteley sighed. The Bulldog cagers will leave for College Station soon after lunch Friday. They will spend the night at the La Salle Hotel in Bryan, and A&M President Earl Rudder is making arrangements for them to see the University of Texas-Texas A&M basketball game at College Station Friday night. Bulldogs to make the trip are Richard Anderson, Robert Ricks, Gene Rowell, Charles Reynolds, George Kidd, Dan Salter, Darrell Roper, Gil Engdahl, Knox Trammell, Larry Low, Brantley Foster and Greg Chase, and manager Eugene Fikes. They will travel in three cars, being driven by coaches Whiteley, K.Y. Owens and Kenneth West. Jubilee may have to charge admission ‘to pay expenses’ Jubilee General Manager Korky Steffens asked the City Council Tuesday night to start thinking about the Jubilee making a gate charge or a charge for parking during the annual Jubilee celebration at Richards Park. “For the last two years we have just barely broken even. After the audit this year we had $39. Maybe that’s better than nothing; we have been going in the red. “We’re going to have to make it a paying celebration,’ Steffens said. “If people know why we’re doing it, I think they will approve.” Steffens said he and the Jubilee directors have considered an admission charge of 25 cents per person with no charge for children’or a parking charge of 50 cents per car. The City Council’s permission would be needed, along with that of the County Commissioners Court, since the park is under city-county ownership. Steffens said that other fairs make a gate charge, and he feared that this is the only way that the Jubilee will ever be able to pay its own way. He also asked the City Council for $750 to rebuild and re-design the Jubilee parade float for its appearances this year. “It’s the best advertising that Brady and McCulloch County can get. We have our chairman and workers ready to go, but no one gets paid for working on the float, except for work by technicians, welding and lighting and that cost is minor.” Steffens said the new design for the float will cost $1,500, and another $500 will be needed for traveling expenses. “We’ve had an outstanding float in the last few years, and we want to keep on winning first place in the parades. It gives the people of Brady and McCulloch County a good feeling when the float wins.” Band replacing stolen instruments The Brady Bulldog Band has made arrangements to replace 11 instruments stolen form the band hall Feb. 13. “Some have been replaced by insurance, and others that were insured are being processed,” said director James Mallow. “We have no clues or trace of the lost instruments.” The band also has borrowed several clarinets temporarily from King Music Co., Brownwood, and several Brady people have loaned instruments to the band “for which we are very grateful,” said Mallow.
