Jubilee float heading for San Antonio

April 24-27, 1962 The July Jubilee float’redesigned and redecorated’will leave at 10:30 a.m. Friday for San Antonio to make its first official appearance of the new season. The float will be seen Saturday night in San Antonio’s Fiesta Flambeau parade. Riding on the float will be Miss Linda Bradham of Brady, a Trinity University student and reigning Miss Heart O’ Texas, Kathryn Leach of Brady and Diane Watkins of Lohn. David T. Quinn and John Watson will take the float to San Antonio and drive it in the parade, one at the wheel while the other operates the portable power plant which furnishes the float’s decorative lights. The float will be partially disassembled for the trip to San Antonio, but Parade Chairman James Isbell will have a crew there to set it up Saturday. “It has to be in the parade line by 4:30 p.m. for the judges,” Isbell said. The crew will be working on the float at the Pearl Brewery. In rebuilding the float, the committee retained the “Heart O’ Texas” theme, of course. A huge heart, opened like a clam shell, will sit at the rear’and will oscillate from side to side. A dainty fairy’taken from a previous edition of the float’will be mounted on the front and also will pivot from side to side. The new float was built in a hanger at Curtis Field, and the crew had planned to make a trial run around the square Wednesday night but couldn’t get the job finished in time. They did, however, plan to take the float out Thursday night for a test around the square about 8:20 p.m. Three girls from Brady High’s junior class, Judy Davenport, Jeannette Sorrell and Rose Ann Reynolds, were asked to ride for the test Thursday night. * * * 30 performers to vie in talent show More than 30 entertainers are entered in the city-wide Talent Contest to be held in the Brady High School Auditorium Friday night.
