the proposal than did the small
Forty-four producers with 22,-

Coach Admits Bulldogs
Will Be 'Hard to Beat’
Coach Chuck Y'ork told the OP
Houn' Dawgs Friday night that
those sports writers who have been
picking his Bulldogs to win the
District 7-AA championship “are
just about right.”
The coach’s startling statement
came as he spoke at the Houn’
Dawgs’ barbecue, held in the Brady
High cafeteria after rain had
forced its move from the stadium.
The Houn’ Dawgs had been feel-
ing pretty good about the Bull-j
dogs’ chances this year, but they ,
weren’t quite expecting York to
put himself on the spot like he did.
• * *
"People have been asking me
about the Bulldogs,” York said. "I
tell them to read the papers. They
seem to know more about it than
| the rest of us . . . especially that
Star-Telegram (which rated Brady
first in the district).
“I can tell you this. That Star-
Telegram's just about right. You're
going to have to be good to beat
this bunch of boys.”
Then as the Houn’ Dawga
with their mouths open in aston-
ishment, York laughed. "I shocked
you, didn’t I?” And that he did.
“I don’t like to be picked. That
costs you at least one touchdown
every game. But we’re up there,
and it’s going to be hard to get
us off. I believe the Bulldogs can

members of his coaching staff and-
had asked each member of the

Kelso was headed east on U. S. 87 |
when he ran up on a 1955 Chevro-
let truck loaded with 300 bushels
, of apples and driven by Anastaeio
Salazar Herrer, 41, of San An-
tonio. Herrer’s wife was with him
but they were not hurt.
The wreck occurred about four
miles east of Eden about 3:30 a. m.

After the collision the Kelso car
ran off the highway to the left,
overturning and landing on its top.
The truck ran off the highway to
the right, running through a fence

arifles in New Mexico and was re-
turning to San Antonio. The truck

A. C. Siler of Melvin brought
Miss Tedder and Anderson to the
hospital. Local officers of the high-
way patrol investigated the wreck.
Some good reserved seats
are still available for the
Brady Bulldogs' home games
this fall. The tickets will be on
sale at City Drug and Rudder
Drug until about Sept. 5.
To be sure of a reserved
seat for each of the Bulldogs’
seven home games, Brady fans
can buy a season ticket for
$1.75 (25 cents .per game).
Later at the gate they will be
charged $1 general admission
