New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 13, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas ★ NBISD_ Continued from Page 1A year, and the Mills fund $3,300. Board president Margy Waldrip reported that the asbestos-removal project was going well, and trustees therefore voted to make the first of three payments, as per contract, in the amount of $53,666. The work is being done by Tex-La Spray. Trustees also approved payment to Floyd Westerman of M.E. Allison & Co. for his help in issuing $8.5 million in building bonds for NBISD. Westerman’s price was $53,160, based on a percentage rate. Business manager Lonnie Curtis noted that the district wouldn't have had to pay★ CISD anything for Westerman’s work if the bond issue had not passed. Fees to attorney Marion J. Borchers for services up through June 27 came to $4,342, with $1,913 of that amount going for collection of delinquent taxes. June tax collections came to $653,116, including $18,335 in delinquent taxes. In other acton, the board approved student-teacher handbooks for 1983-84, excepting those for the Lamar-Special Education campus, where the books aren’t ready yet. Assistant superintendent Oscar Smith said Linda Avila had just stepped into her job as special education super visor, and hadn’t had time to review the handbooks yet. The administration hopes to have the books ready for distribution when students register next month. Waldrip told the board she would be speaking before a State Textbook Committee hearing on Aug. 2, having filed a comment on a proposed world history text. It could be a routine meeting, but then again, it might be very interesting. “I follow Madalyn Murray O’Hair,” said Waldrip. “She gets six minutes, and I get six minutes. And I understand she’s also speaking on world history.” — DYANNE FRY★ Morgan Continued from Page 1A Tuesday, Steinberg finally spoke with a crowd of reporters. ‘‘Someone from the press corps went into my library this morning and took those tapes,” Steinberg said. Steinberg said he would respond to the subpoena and “I hope to bring them (the tapes).” Steinberg said earlier he got the tapes from a woman he did not know who said they might be useful in defending Marvin Pancoast, 33, on charges of murdering Miss Morgan. Authorities had telephoned Steinberg on Tuesday morning to inquire about viewing the tapes. A few hours later Steinberg called back to say they had disappeared from a gym bag where he had left them. Beverly Hills police visited his office later to investigate the reported theft. Steinberg, who had said he would destroy the tapes unless President Reagan wished to see them, also telephoned White House counsel Fred Fielding in Washington on Tuesday to say the tapes were missing, deputy White House press secretary Larry Speakes said. The subpoena ordered Steinberg to bring the tapes to court on July 25, when Pancoast is to be arraigned. Police say Pancoast has admitted killing Miss Morgan in the apartment they were sharing. Senators rap civil rights panel appointments WASHINGTON (AP) - Two Democratic senators criticized President Reagan today for firing three members of the Civil Rights Commission so he could replace them with nominees more attuned to his philosophy. Sens. Joseph R. Biden Jr., of Delaware and Howard M. Metzenbaum of Ohio made clear that they do not dispute the qualifications of Reagan’s three nominees, all of whom are white men. But at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, the senators objected to what they believe to be the president’s attempt to curtail the independence of the six-member commission. Continued from Page 1A realistically, the closer those bills get to Santa Claus time, the harder it is to collect.” The borrowed money, however, wouldn’t make too big of a dent in the proposed budget. “We’d me it on short-term loans, which means we’d have to pay it back the same year,” Nowotny said. “That would only make our total debt service for 1983-84 at $692,790, compared to $682,783 in 1982-83.” Supt. Willhelm said the Comal County Appraisal District review board has meetings on July 18 and 26. “So if things operate at maximum efficiency, we might have a tax roll by the last week of October or first of November.” Estimated total revenue for 1983-84 hit $12,914,714. Estimated total funds available moved that up to $13,555,342, meaning that CISD wo uld be left with a contingency fund of $260,628 at the end of the 1983-84 year. Salary step increases, for the most part, account for the 7.07 increase from last year’s budget to this year’s proposal. “But even if we were to pass last year’s budget, we’d have to cut personnel, the step increases, and even then, I don’t see how we could make up for the $1 million we had last year to carry over.” The Tuesday night meeting was more of a workshop, but Willhelm said teacher salaries will be on the agenda for the regular July 19 meeting. And trustees certainly haven’t heard the last strain of the budget blues. In other action, the board approved a $2,238 bid from Harrison Construction Co., to build a walkway between the Administration Office and the Tax Office. “We need to effectively use the Tax Office, and this is the cheapest way for us to gain square footage,” Willhelm said. Following an executive session, trustees also approved employment of these teachers: Stephen Czerwonky, Allen Fischer, Bobby Granger, and Kenton Moore, all for Smithson Valley High School; Diane Moore, Canyon High School; and Madge Storm for Bulverde Middle School. Joe Hall was hired as district math coordinator. Paul Tressa, currently with I^ewisville ISD in the Dallas area, was granted a two-year contract as Bulverde Middle School principal, and the resignation of Geraldine Windecker at SVHS was also accepted.★ FTC Continued from Page 1A commission said, such claims as those made by the two companies will have to be supported by at least two clinical studies, although other forms of proof may be allowed on a case-by-case basis. Bristol-Myers makes Buf-ferin, Excedrin and Excedrin PM Sterling makes Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Children's Aspirin, Vanquish, Cope and Midol. The commission’s order today also covers claims made for Bristol-Myers products by the Ted Bates and Young & Rubicam advertising agencies. The FTC said, however, that charges against Ix>is Holland Calloway, the advertising agency for Vanquish, were dismissed after the commission concluded that claims made by that firm had not been shown to be deceptive. The FTC also noted that charges against the Dancer-Fitzgerald-Sample agency, which represents Sterling, had been settled in a 1980 consent decree. The cases stem from complaints originally issued by the commission in 1973. Originally, a third case was involved against American Home Products Corp., but that was decided in 1981. American Home Products makes Anacin and Arthritis Pain F'ormula. Newsmakers Governor goes to the birds FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Gov. Bill Clinton took a six-hour break from affairs of state to gut chickens and turkeys at a Campbells Soup Co. factory — and his constituents loved it. Clinton, a 36-year-old Democrat, reported for work at the factory Monday along with the rest of the eviscerating shift. He removed the entrails from several turkeys, weighed chicken livers, carved chicken breasts and packaged Campbells Soup’s ‘ Plump and Juicy” product line. “I think it was an enlightening experience for him,” said Richard Bailey, plant manager. He said both the governor and plant employees responded enthusiastically to the visit. Clinton said later the visit to the plant was part of a new program in which he plans to spend time working with factory ernpoyees at least once ach month. Asked what the workers thought of his visit, Clinton said the reaction was “overwhelmingly positive, especially after the people see I’m really there to get a feel for their jobs and to talk to them.” Wayne s son finds life tough IjOS ANGEl.ES t AP) — Film actor John FHhan Wayne says he's finding it tough to be the son of a legend. The 21-year-old son of the late film star John Wayne says he “was kinda mad” at first when he learned his screen credit for the film “Escape From El Diablo” would identify him by his full name. “It sounds as if I’m trying to cash in,” he said. “I wanted to be known as Ethan Wayne, but they tell me John Ethan Wayne is better. “What it means, I guess, is that I’ll have to work doubly hard to prove myself.” “‘Escape From El Diablo” — in which Wayne plays an American who gets invplved with a group of American youths seeking excitement in Mexico, will mark the young Wayne’s first starring role when it opens in August. He previously worked on “The Blues Brothers” and had a small role in a horror film named “The Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker.” He and older brothers Patrick and Michael say they may tour with Ned Simon's play, “Come Blow Your Horn.” "Patrick and I would be in the play and Michael would produce. We're looking for a director now,” he said. Newton says no to politics CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Us Vegas pop star Wayne Newton, who is being bandied about as a possible Republican gubernatorial contender in Nevada, says he’s not tough enough for politics. Newton, 41, interviewed Tuesday on the “CBS Morning News,” said, “I don’t think I'm tough enough to be a politician. I’m a little too thin-skinned ... I don’t like the bureaucracy of it all.” Newton said he was approached last week by Republican officials about running as a GOP gubernatorial candidate in 1986 “but it’s not something I’m interested in.” ♦ * BACK AT SAFEWAY...BY POPULAR DEMAND!
