Jubilee to apply for race board sanction

July 12-15, 1966 Directors of the July Jubilee Association passed a resolution Tuesday night to make application to join the Racing Board of Texas, Inc. The move was made in an effort to create a better type of racing, inaugurate better control and to plan more than one race meet per year. Jubilee president Parker Pumphrey said an inspector would be sent soon to inspect the track and make recommendations that would enable them to meet the specifications of the racing board. Meeting at the Plateau Restaurant with the directors were Leonard Von Dohlen III of Goliad, president of the racing board, and Jack Resch of Austin of the American Quarterhorse Association. Reports from the Jubilee committee were heard and Pumphrey said, though they are not complete, the Jubilee will show a profit again this year. Better than usual attendance for all three days of racing and a big attendance at the carnival assured the association of another year “in the black.” The directors were pleased with the interest shown this year by the people of McCulloch County. Pumphrey expressed their appreciation for the hard work of all the committees that helped to make the Jubilee a success. *** Donald Neal named FHA county committeeman Donald L. Neal has been appointed to the Farmers Home Administration County Committee by L.J. Cappleman, state director. Neal replaces Bill Moseley, whose term expired June 30. He joins David Dahlberg and Owen Randolph to compose the county committee, which has the responsibility of certifying applicants’ eligibility and establishing the amount of credit needed for each loan. Neal ranches east of Rochelle, running cattle, sheep and goats. He is a graduate of Texas Tech and a veteran of the Air Force. “We are fortunate in having Neal on our county committee,” says Tom Wiley, county supervisor for the Farmers Home Administration. “He will be a big help in providing the services of the Farmers Home Administration to the people of McCulloch County.” *** Youths charged in two Brady burglaries Two break-ins Monday night led to the apprehension of two Brady youths. They were tried in juvenile court Wednesday morning and remanded to the custody of their parents. The youths broke into Hilliard’s Enco Station at 1002 S. Bridge and L.E. Gulf Station and garage at 701 S. Bridge. All stolen properties were recovered and returned to the owners. Considerable damage was done at Scott’s where the youths damaged the cash register and poured oil over papers and the floor.
