Page 1BLawmen seek suspect in murder A 25-year-old carpenter was shot in the back Friday night and sheriff’s deputies have offered a reward to find out who did it. Before he died, Saul Munoz of Rush I-ane told his brother his assailants are from Seguin. “About 7 p.in. yesterday, he was in the front yard and his brother was watching t.v.,” said Sheriff’s Department detective Dennis Koepp. “He heard three shots and went outside." The brother found Munoz on the ground and saw a medium blue Chevrolet with roll bar and tool box speeding down the street. Koepp said the brother thinks there were two I .atm males in the truck. “He asked his brother what happened and all he would say is that they were from Seguin," Koepp said. “We’re almost positive Saul knew who it was, but we’re not sure about the witnesses." Sheriff’s LL Rudy Rubio said witnesses had reported seeing tile vehicle earlier in the week and even early Friday. However, no one witnessed a struggle and no one saw the shooting. An autopsy ordered by Judge Harold Krueger found a .38 caliber bullet which had struck Munoz in the lower left portion of his back and lodged in the upper portion of the right side of his chest. Rubio said the bullet tore through Munoz’s aorta. Whoever shot Munoz, Koepp said, probably was a passenger in the truck. Persons with information about the incident are asked to call Rubio or Koepp at the Sheriff’s Department, 625-9141. A reward will be given for information leading to the arrest of suspects and informants’ names will be kept confidential. Rumors haunt Chernenko MUSCOW (AP) - The Soviet Union marked the first anniversary Saturday of Yuri V. Andropov’s death, with President Konstantin U. Chernenko at the center of rumors that the Kremlin may be facing its third transition in just over two years. Andropov died on Feb. 9,1984. Four days later, Chernenko was named party general secretary. He later became president, which carries the titular role of head of state. Iii the 362 days since Chernenko took over, the Soviets have agreed to enter new arms talks with the United States, launched a new diplomatic offensive in the Middle East, and continued economic experiments started under Andropov. But these efforts have been seen as the product of group leadership, rather than of the 73-year-oid Chernenko himself. And, as has been true almost constantly since the last days of Andropov’s predecessor, I^onid I. Brezhnev, who died in November 1982, outside attention is focused as much on Kremlin politics as on Soviet policy. With Chernenko out of sight for more than six weeks and reportedly ill, foreign diplomats and journalists are once again hunting for scraps of information about his health and examining potential successors. Conflicting reports from official sources add to the confusion and speculation. But Kremlin watchers hope two impending events will provide more solid evidence about Chernenko’s condition. Normally, Chernenko could be expected to meet Greek Premier Andreas Papandreou, who arrives See CHERNENKO, Page 12A Coming a-choo Doctors offer advice about flu season By DANA STELL Staff writer Earlier this week, Texas was listed as one of the IO states reporting epidemic levels of influenza, but local doctors and schools believe the worst has passed. “{.ast Monday was the all-time high in this office," said pediatrician Timothy Owens. “We had 45 patients. It was unbelieveable." Owens said his practice this week tapered off to 30 to 35 sick children a day — still about 15 more than his usual load. “I think we peaked last week,” Owens said, adding that the bug probably will stick around another week or so. “This is a pretty bad flu year,” the pediatrician said, explaining that the virus changes shape every few years and fools the antibodies in the human body. The result, he said, is that nobody is immune to the new shape and the flu attacks everybody. Dr. William Reeves, a family practitioner, said 80 percent of his patients are complaining of viral infections. He also saw a peak at the end of January, which corresponds to the high number of absentees at local schools last month. The number of school children out of school the last week of January was far below normal at all schools. New Braunfels High School had 228 absent Feb. I. Some schools report an improvement in the attendance percentages (although still below normal), while some of the lower grades report a large number of students still staying at home. “I think we’re on the wane now," said a spokesperson at Comal Elementary; and a nurse at Frazier Elementary said that school was still experiencing a large number of cases. “They’re coming back too soon," she said. And that’s something Dr Owens cautions against. “Don’t send them back too soon," he said, recoin mending that the child go without a fever for one full day before going back to school. Children returning to school and even adults returning to work too soon only exposes others to the virus Besides. Owens said, when people don’t feel well, they don’t perform well. The erratic weather that has prevailed this winter has not helped the situation much. “Because of the on and off cold snaps, everyone has lowered resistance,’’ Owens said. “And it adds to things that when you’re in school, you’re inside, and when you’re at home, you’re inside” because it’s cold and all that togetherness makes for a highly contagious atmosphere. Owens also explained that the flu often leads to other, more serious, illnesses, such as ear aches, sore throats, and something most common for the elderly pneumonia. Health officer Dr. Jack Bergfeld said the influenza alert is particularly important for older people and for those who are considered vulnerable because of lung and heart diseases or diabetes. Those persons, especially, should consider receiving a yearly flu vaccine, Bergfeld said. Owens said he vaccinates only children with respiratory problems, particularly asthma. “The biggest risk is the older people, they should probably receive a flu See FLU, Page 12A Cranes for peace Students at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School wrapped up National Catholic School Week with the hanging of hundreds of folded paper cranes in the trees near the school.

The idea for the birds comes from a survivor of the atomic bomb blast at Hiroshima, Japan, who believed her wish would come true if she could complete 1,000 of the origami cranes She died before h»*r project was completed, but students around the world have started folding the cranes as a message of peace The hanging of the cranes completed a week that included an assortment of activities and the release of balloons filled with messages Related photos, story.

The loans, which never showed up on Mattox’s campaign disclosure statements, came through a bank where South Texas businessman Clinton Manges had some influence. Manges was suing Mobil Oil at the time for some royalties on oil leases on the Manges ranch, a lawsuit that the State of Texas had joined and eventually received a large settlement from See CI ARK, Page 12A Today's Weather The sun will shine today, according to the forecast, and temperatures should reach the mid-70s But by evening the temperatures will begin dropping with an overnight low in the mid 30s, and temperatures should remain cooler Monday.

Egypt's foreign minister, Esmat Abdel-Meguid, says he sees signs that King Hussein of Jordan is preparing to take “a calculated risk" and negotiate peace with Israel. Abdel-Meguid, as the first in a series of Arab officials here to discuss with the Reagan administration prospects for peace in the Middle East, was optimistic about the outlook See Page 4A Farm Pressure The Reagan adnunistration’s offer of seed money for the nation’s farmers has fallen on hard ground, and cries for more help continue to mount as the deadline for spring planting loans grows near. The credit crisis, which the administration had hoped would be cooled by its offer of $650 million in loan guarantees, instead heated up in a week that saw bankers and farm groups reject the offer.
