It is quite normal for puppies to go off their feed during this period, and even to develop a mild diarrhea. Since their gums are sore, it might be advisable to switch to a softer, blander diet than the one your puppy is having trouble with, or moisten the diet with warm water. At the same time, most puppies like to ease their sore gums by chewing on something soft — possibly even human flesh. As much as you may sympathize with your puppy's distress, it might be wise to discourage him from this habit before too much of your anatomy is destroyed. Hard-rubber toys and rawhide bones are a good substitute. If the baby teeth have not fallen out by the time your puppy is seven or eight months old. you should take him to your veterinarian. If they are left in, they can impede the permanent teeth and the puppy will be left with a double row of teeth or crooked teeth.

FEBRUARY 9 Born today, you have been gifted with a single outstanding talent which will be up to you to discover, cultivate and utilize to your soul’s delight and your financial benefit. You will get little help from others in any of these regards; rather, you will suffer a considerable sense of rejection if you attempt to bring your occupation and/or preoccupation problems to others. Even those who know and love you most may have a “hands-off" attitude about you and your work — much to your dismay at times. You possess something of an imperious nature. You like being the “boss" as much as you hate being anyone’s “underling.” You trust yourself not to make the mistakes you have come to expect from others, especially in matters of money and/or romance. Also born on this date are: Heather Angel and Mia Farrow, actresses; William Henry Harrison, U.S. President. To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. I .et your birthday star be your daily guide. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY IO AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 181 — Panic may cause you to lose your direction and, thus, a chance to attain your goal before day’s end. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — Lose neither heart nor patience and all will go well for you today. Help another to gain confidence. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A quiet morning grants you the kind of ease you need to face a highly-complex, active afternoon. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Support one who has supported you in the past. A new project may appear more frightening that it really is. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Personal issues may stand between you and a promotion on the employment scene. Stand up for what you believe. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Joint finances may cause more trouble than they’re worth. See about getting an account of your own. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - You may be the recipient of benefits that should go to another. Refuse to accept what really isn’t yours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - What appears unreasonable now may prove to have been merely another sign of affection. Consider the source! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oet. 22) - Reaffirm your authority on the homefront. Libra women are especially vulnerable now to emotional upset. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) - Take care not to overcommit yourself. You wil have a tendency to accept today whatever is suggested. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — A surprise move carries you to an unexpected success.

Truckers' strike has store owner searching for 'missing' goods By MARJORIE COOK Wayward Trucks: Gary Krone, who hopes to be opening his Braunfels Sporting Goods in the Courtyard Center March I, was trying this morning to locate trucks coming from California and Oregon with his merchandise. They have been sidetracked by the strike. Krone and wife Terry, Houston natives, decided they had had it there and set out in June in a motor home to look at available shops between Houston and El Paso. New Braunfels won. The family, including sons Jeff, ll, and Ashley, 6, will move here this month. Gary coached football and basketball at Klein High School in 1974-75. He recently owned a construction company specializing in repairing fire damage but wants “to live again.” The Krones are members of the Methodist Church, and Gary plans to be active in civic organizations here. BANK EXPANSION: Texas Commerce Bank-New Braunfels (formerly First National) has an architect working on a feasibility study for expansion, including the possibility of going farther westward on San Antonio Street. If expansion is to be, it will probably take place in late 1983 or early 1984, President Robert Orr said. Shops adjoining the bank are what’s left of the old Krause Building, part of which stood where Texas Commerce is. Remodeling is now going on upstairs in the bank to create more offices. Orr said the 1870 Hinman House on Casten Street will continue to be used as it is for board meetings. Adventure Images: River tubing is what brought a video recording and photo studio to New Braunfels. Adventure Images, which just finished video taping the whole Texas Junior Miss Pageant here, is observing its opening throughout February in the building leased from Mrs. Otto Seidel next to Seidel Camera Shop. Robert Mangus and his wife Gean came first in 1981 to float down the river and thought what a great idea it would be to video tape tubers. Back home in Fort Worth, they took courses to increase their camera knowledge. All summer in 1982, their “most enjoyable ever,” they camped out at Hueco Springs and taped every raft and tube that floated by, selling tapes to the subjects for viewing on their home television sets. The Manguses, with their one child out of four at home, moved here in November. Miller to Move: Joe Miller is breaking ground today on his new facility for Wholesale Beers, Inc., on Interstate 35 across from Canyon High School. He expects to move from his 10,000 square foot building on Eikel Street to the new 23,000 square foot location in early June. Miller distributes Miller and Lowenbrau to Comal County and San Marcos. From Japan: The delegation of 14 gentlemen of Japan who filed upstairs recently at Guaranty State Bank were from Sanyo, electronics manufacturers. They were making a products presentation to executives of the local Americana Electronic Products Corp., which had borrowed the bank’s board room. Americana moved here from Spring last summer. Sanyo’s new products are for zone heating, in line with the trend toward heating individual rooms as opposed to central heating, said John Bowling, chief executive of Americana — import agent for numerous large U.S. stores and chains. Americana also is sole U.S. agent for Loyal Electrical Manufacturing Corp., of Hongkong, which established its first U.S. plant here for part of its ceiling fan production. Everything from wall coverings to electronics is imported by Americana, which also represents several overseas manufacturers. Oriental Rug: Susan Derkacz, whose quilted vests and pillows were seen at the Quiltmaker, is hand- knotting her own oriental rug, one thread at a time just as Near East nomads do it. She learned about the craft from her 84-year-old grandmother in Maine who has made two rugs. Maine is where the designs and Persian wool in beautiful muted shades are obtained from a supplier who won’t reveal her sources. Susan and Steve Derkacz are restoring a 19th Century house in Comaltown on South Street between Central and Veramendi. Restoration: Jere Dial, erstwhile vice-president of Rollins, Burdick, Hunter, international insurance brokerage, Houston, is doing some of the restoration on a local 19th Century home himself and “having a ball,” his wife Pat said. With their children just out of college, they have decided to “do their own thing” and move to New Braunfels where they got engaged in Landa Park 31 years ago. She was an Air Force nurse and he was a pilot during the Korean War. The house they are restoring at 633 Casten was built by Mayor Charles Alves (1916-1922) and handed down to two generations of daughters, the last of whom was Mercedes Rose Travis. Pat’s “own thing” is hangings, vests and jackets of old quilts and bits of lace, and she displays her creations at shows and clubs. More Handcrafts: Monogramming on everything you can think of is the speciality of Sandie Goode, owner of the Red Geranium, across Mill Street from the Post Office. The shop houses fine handwork of numerous needle artists. Smocked bonnets, rompers and infants and girls dresses are the work of Libby Swanson, Judy Hayden, Sandy Smith, Paula Warren and Pam Seay. Miniscule cross stitching worthy of framing is by Ann Eason and Beth Bateman, who also do the shop candelwicking. Theresa McClure and Sandie do the clever hand-painting in the gift collection. Local temperatures Tuesday’s high was 69 degrees, followed by an overnight low of 61. Today’s high will be in the low-70s; tonight’s low in the mid-40s and Thursday’s high near 70. Lake level Canyon Lake is holding steady at 906.43 feet above sea level. A trace of precipitation was recorded at the dam. KGNB Radio recorded .05 inch in New Braunfels Tuesday night. Texas Dense fog reduced visbility to about one-fourth of a mile across much of North Texas early today, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a travelers advisory because of hazardous driving conditions. The fog was reported over most of the eastern two-thirds of North Texas. Elsewhere, scattered showers and thunderstorms were reported before dawn in the Panhandle and West Texas as well as in eastern and southeastern sections of the state.
