63 pints for bloodmobile’3 awarded multiple pins

Aug. 2-6, 1966 Sixty-three pints of blood were received during the visit of the bloodmobile to Brady last Wednesday. The drawing fell seven short of the quota. The visit, a memorial to Mrs. Ira Turner, was termed successful, though the quota was not reached. A hard shower fell at the most popular visiting time and as a result some of the people who had intended to give blood were unable to do so. Several pints were also donated in memory of Danny Harris, son of Mrs. and Mrs. Willie Harris, who died recently of leukemia. Donors receiving multiple unit pins were J.D. Floyd, three gallons, Mrs. J.N. Day and Mrs. Elmer Harris, one gallon. The Rev. Bill Kenney, local blood chairman, and Mrs. Howard Salter, local secretary of the Red Cross, expressed thanks to the Brady Standard, Brady Herald, Radio Station KNEL, all volunteer workers, recruiters, doctors and nurses and the East Sweden Home Demonstration Club for helping to make the visit a success. Those donating blood were: Guy Siler, Mrs. J.N. Day, Mrs. Clarence Hermanson, Henry McBroom, Carl W. Jacobson, Roy B. Miller, J.D. Floyd, Frank Derebery, Mrs. P.L. Ulstad, Clovis Cochran, Mrs. Elmer Harris, Mrs. Novice Carlson, Mrs. Fred Wilson, James Bates. C.A. Reynolds, Bill Kenney, Billy J. Neal, Frank Roddie, Jr., Hugh B.

Safe burglars broke into Higginbotham Lumber Co., sometime Saturday night and attempted to break into the safe. The culprits knocked the knob from the safe and set off a charge of tear gas. Nothing was taken except the knob. The burglars gained entry through a north window where they tore off a screen and broke the glass to reach the latch. After gaining entrance they pried open the office door. Andy Allen, manager of the firm, discovered the burglary about 5 p.m. Sunday and notified Sheriff Luke Vogel and Deputy Golden Jones, who investigated. Jones said no clues were found and that the sheriff’s department felt that the job had been pulled off by an experienced person or persons. “They got a pretty good dose of the tear gas for their trouble because it was still strong in there Sunday afternoon,” Jones said. *** 30 teams sign up for partnership golf tourney About 30 entries have been received for the second annual Heart of Texas Golf Association Partnership Tournament Sept. 17-18. The 36-hole meet will be held at the Municipal Golf Course and will be limited to 60 teams in five flights. The qualifying round, which will count on the tourney score, will be played on Saturday, Sept. 17, with finals to be played Sunday. Entries must be turned in to J.D. Barley by Sept. 17. The fee will be $20 per team. Barley suggested that all local golfers planning to participate should get their names in as soon as possible since the meet will be conducted on a first come’first serve basis. This will be the second event of this kind to be held at the local course. The flights last year were filled early and the tourney was declared a success. *** Garden Club to begin year’s study The Brady Garden Club will begin the club year with a meeting at the clubroom at Richards Memorial Library Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Brock, newly- elected president, will conduct the meeting beginning at 2:30 p.m. Mrs. Elroy Keese, program chairman, will review the yearbook and discuss the special events of the coming year.
