win toss, f, ace Stinnett at Panhandle Friday Lucky co00n tosses Clarendon Bronchos into Bi-Oistrict Clarendon, Donley County. Texas II I iii . ' Sunday, November 18, 1973 Volume II, No. 40 Bronchos romp all over Wheeler Mustanlls, 37-7 WHEELER--Clarendon's Bronchos put a fitting touch to their game of the regular season here Friday night, running aay the Wheeler Mustangs by a score of 37-7. It was a team effort, with everybody doing what they were to do. The Clarendon defense did a good job as usual, the offense pulled some keen stunts against a team that how to play defense. The win gave the Bronchos an 8-2 record and a 5-1 district and left them in a 3-way tie for the District 2A with Claude and Memphis. A toss of the coin who would represent the district against Stinnett, and story can be found on this same page. Perhaps the most unusual event of the evening was when Danny Monroe punted the ball, then fell under the punt and caught his own kick. The punt fell behind the line of scrimmage, and Monroe advanced it 5 yards before falling down. Kenneth Reese started the scoring off for Clarendon early in the game when he ran 58 yards for a touchdown. The run was around right end, and he just outran everybody from Wheeler and scored. Kenneth King's kick was good, and it was 7-0 with 9:37 showing on the clock. Wheeler recovered a Clarendon fumble on their own 43 a short time later, and advanced the bali methodically down the field for a score. Lewis Britt went over for the touchdown from the 4, and the kick tied it up at 7-7. It was after a Wheeler punt that the Bronchos marched again. The Broncs took the ball on the Wheeler 40, and marched 40 yards on runs by Reese, King, Jerry Holland and Randy Croslin. King made a 1-yard run for the score, and the kick made it 14-7 Clarendon. King kicked a 38-yard field goal near the end of the first half, . making the score 17-7 at the half. Clarendon rode again early in the second half. Reese returned a Wheeler punt to the Mustang 33, and capped the drive with a run from a yard out. The kick made it 24-7. The Brones made it 31-7 a little later when the defense did a magnificent job of blocking a Wheeler punt. King picked up the fumble on the block and ran it in for the touchdown.

The Clarendon Bulldogs raised their season record to 2-0 Thursday night with an easy 74-47 pounding of the Wayland Junior Varsity, although the game did not reach the proportions the previous game had. The 'dogs had an extremely balanced team effort against the Wayland crew, with Joe Pride again leading both scoring and rebounding, with 17 points and 18 caroms. Junior Siegeler followed with 12 points and 17 rebounds and Davey Graham put in 12 points and gathered 6 rebounds. Archie Hughes also finished the night in two columns, putting 11 points on the board and bringing in 4 rebounds. Rounding out the Bulldog scoring were Evander Ford and Joe Evans with 6 points each, Brent Sherrod and Steve Amerine with 4 points each and Richard Wiley with 2 points. The team rebounding total for the night was 58, down just a bit from the 68 pulled in against Panhandle State, but still impressive. The Bulldogs let the people from Wayland know who was boss under the backboards, though, and also gave the home crowd no doubt as to who controlled the offensive side of the game, hitting 32 field goals of 71 attempts for a respectable .45 percentage from the field. Clarendon also hit well from the charity stripe, sinking 10 Of 13 free throws for almost .80 per cent accuracy from the line. Leading scorer from the foul line was Pride, who sank 3 of the freebies. [Cont'd. on Page 7] Lady Luck smiled on the Clarendon Bronchos Saturday morning, and head coach Clyde Noonkester won a toss of the coin, thus giving Clarendon the right to represent District 2A in the Bi-District playoff game against Stinnett. The Bronchos ended the regular season in a 3-way tie for the district championship with Claude and Memphis. Representatives from the three teams met here Saturday morning to toss the coin, and the Broncs had the lucky coin. The Bronchos will meet Stinnett in Bi-District play next Friday night in Panhandle at 7:30 p.m. The Broncs had been a sure pick to win district undisputed after they beat Memphis 13-12 at mid-season, but an upset by Claude forced the picture into a 3-way tie. Clarendon isn't noted for winning coin tosses. In Noonkester's 7 years as head coach, he had never won a toss in a district tie. And, the Broncho captains went 9 straight games this year without winning a toss at the beginning of the game. They did, however, win the toss Friday night, and that apparently set the pace for Saturday's win. Hospital opening here Monday The Donley County Medical Center Hospital is scheduled to open Monday morning, after a period of 14 months of being closed. In preparation for the hospital's opening, an open house and reception will be held today (Sunday) from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the hospital. The open house is in honor of Dr. R.L. (Rip) Gilkey and Dr. Dale LaTonn, the county's doctors, and their staffs and the staff of the hospital. The open house will enable residents to get a view of the hospital facilities. The hospital board has been busy the past month arranging for a staff for the hospital. The staff has been hired and Hospital Administrator Dale Martin reported Friday that everything is ready for the opening Monday. .... M.t-.M was hired last, week as admia.stxator of ,he hospital. She had served as administrator of the nursing home since it opened in 1972. Steve Bell was named as business manager and assistant administrator and Charlotte Alexander was named as director of nurses. Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Alexander have completed their staff of nurses and other personnel, and all will report to work Monday. Mrs. Martin said that two patients are waiting for the hospital to open and will be admitted first thing Monday. The hospital will hold 20 patients, the nursing home 22. The nursing home is presently filled to capacity. The doctors on the staff of the hospital are Dr. R.L. (Rip) Gilkey and Dr. E. Dale Latonn. Dr. Gilkey, who moved here from Waxahachie in September, applied as a member of the staff soon after arriving here. Dr. LaTonn, who moved here from Minnesota recently, also has been given staff privileges. Both are Medical Doctors. Dr. Gilkey has established a big practice at Adair Clinic. Dr. LaTonn is practicing at Medical Center Clinic. He opened his practice there last week, and reports his business to be growing. "We hope the public will come out to greet our doctors," Mrs. Martin jsaid Friday. Doctors and nurses from all over the area have been invited. Thursday Press early The Clarendon Press Thursday edition will be published a day early this week. The paper wm come out in the Wednesday morning mall instead of the Thursday mall. Deadline for news and advertising copy will be 6 p.m. Monday. The change Is due to Thanksgiving, which Is Thursday. The Clarendon Press office will be closed Thursday. Well-known baker "retires" here by DAVID EVERMAN Andrew Sehulze, or "Andy" as he is called by his friends, has been in the bakery business for most of his life, starting with his birth over a bakery in Woodville, Ohio, back in the days when store owners lived upstairs and worked downstairs. The store owner was his father, who later brought his family out to the Panhandle area to homestead. Schulze wm open Dream Donut Shop here Tuesday. The announcement is in this issue of The Clarendon Press. Schulze, who retired at the start of this year, found retirement was not everything he had expected. He had bought a farm near Hedley, but soon found retirement tedious. "I love to work," he explained to The Press, "and I want something to do. I don't relish the idea of laying around and not doing much. I guess I just wanted to be useful." The new doughnut shop is located on the corner of second and Taylor, and the Schulze home is one the old Ed Callahan place. Sehulze started with a small bakery in 1935, "when a dollar was worth a 100 cents." At the time, he decided to save the dollar and make his own flour, and he still "rolls his own" in the flour department. Schulze's doughnuts are not new to many Clarendon residents, for they were often brought down to towns by a bread truck or sometimes even a milk truck that would stop by after the work day and pick up any excess doughnuts he might have. Schulze said the doughnuts would probably be better received now, since Clarendon people will be getting them straight from the oven. The shop here in Clarendon is the second time Schulze has retired and found that retired life was not for him. He retired the first time in the Second World War, then went back into business in Panhandle in 1954. Between the war and his new business he worked at several jobs, one of them in Amarillo, where he assembled pre-fabricated houses. The new store was a combination bakery-grocery store, sort of a "quick-stop," as Schulze explained. It was during his time at this business that his doughnuts became known all over the Panhandle area, and his fame as a baker grew. He explained his success by saying, "I like to make a doughnut you don't have to chew, one that'll melt in your mouth." The store was intended to be run in semi-retirement, but ',it just kind of got away from me," Schulze said. The quiet business went big-time, so Schulze ended up hiring some help, and at the first of the year sold to one of his employes, who is now doing well in the business. One thing Schulze told the Press is that he was descended from a German princess. He then explained that his grandmother fell in love with a blacksmith, and was promptly disinherited. The blacksmith later came over to America, then sent for his wife. Schulze's grandfather later worked for the government, inspecting ammunition casings, though he could neither read nor write English. Schulze said that he was glad to be in Clarendon, and that he had always like the area.
