Spirit is good, but’Bulldogs to scrimmage Comanche

Aug. 30-Sept. 2, 1966 Head Coach Fletcher Fields was a little disappointed in the Monday morning workout of his Brady Bulldogs. “The boys had a fine spirit but they sure didn’t look too sharp,” Fields said. All players were on the able list Monday as bruises and sprains were back to normal. Fields said one bright spot has appeared on the horizon with the appearance of Dewey Darley for workouts. “It looks as if we might have enlisted a pretty good kicker. He has lots of ability and was kicking well in practice,” the coach said. Darley can kick with either foot barefooted. He will be used both for kickoffs and extra points, Field said. Darley will probably share kicking chores with Wayne Moore who has been getting in some practice in that phase of the game. The addition of two players to the squad Monday helped Fields’ feelings. Rudy Sandoval reported along with Darley. The coach has sent a few players back to the B team and will probably drop some more back, but expects to keep his strength at 26 to 28 boys. The Comanche-Bulldog scrimmage has been set for 7 p.m. Friday evening, with the workout to last about an hour and a half. The locals are all healthy, but have been forced to work indoors since Tuesday due to a wet practice field. He has had the boys working in the gym during the inclement weather and he planned no contact Thursday because he wanted to be full strength for the scrimmage Friday night. “You can get the boys up mentally if they are up physically,” Fields explained. Season tickets for the Bulldogs home games are on sale at a reduced price to both option holders and the general public. The price of one game ticket can be saved on the season ducats. The season tickets sell for $1.25 per game as compared with $1.50 regular tickets. They are available at the school tax office in the City Hall. Tickets have been moving pretty good and we would like for people to take advantage of the season special for the five home games. *** Bob McDonough new president of Bulldog band The Brady Bulldog Band, the largest organization in Brady High School, elected new officers Monday. Bob McDonough will fill the president’s office for the coming year. Other officers are Joyce Marsden, vice president; Dainty Wood, secretary; Ronald Martin, band manager and Gayl Hubbard, Librarian. Band council members elected were Terry Parker and Sandra Brock, seniors; Claire Day and Jolene Boswell, juniors; Kathy Jackson and Frank Carmichael, sophomores; Gaylon Young and Sheila Anderson, freshmen; Joan Breckenridge and Belinda Britteon, members at large. Kathy Young was elected drum major last spring. Majorettes will be Reva Hargrove, Carol Ricks, Joan Breckenridge, Rita Crew and Judy Bryson. *** Jailbreakers plead guilty’draw prison terms Lonnie Lee Teague and Bobby Roberts, who sawed their way out of McCulloch County jail July 28, pleased guilty in 35th District Court Wednesday and were sentenced to prison at Huntsville. Teague was charged with malicious destruction of personal property over $50 value and escape from confinement. Judge Joe Dibrell sentenced him to five years on each count, the terms to run consecutively. Roberts was charged with forgery and passing and escape from confinement and was given the same sentence of five years on each charge, also to run consecutively. The two men were taken to Huntsville Thursday to begin serving their sentences. *** Christmas in August party at Central Baptist The Central Baptist Girls Auxiliary was the host at the “Christmas in August” party held at Richards Park, Saturday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The girls put up decorations in green and white and hung the pinata filled with goodies for the girls and leaders. For Community Missions, the girls made feeding aprons, which the Central GA’s delivered Saturday afternoon to Sheffield’s Rest Home. Games, songs, a reading by the girls and the devotion by Mrs. J.A. Clevenger, director of the church followed.
