starting in We start the training or the conditioning of the young pigeons in July or We do this by taking them an increasing distance in miles from their loft and releasing them so they can return We do not teach them to return This is We do this to condition their heart and lungs so they can sustain flight for long periods of The problem comes when dove season starts the first of The birds on a long training flight or race on a hot will go down to a lake or pond for If there is an IDIOT with a shotgun waiting for one or more of the pigeons will be killed or wound You notice I said an IDIOT with a shotgun not a dove A true hunter will only shoot what he is The pigeons we fly are pedigreed birds and quite It is not uncommon to pay hundreds of dollars for one pigeon for a A lot of time and loving care goes into training and racing these birds and it can all be lost in one careless act by a person with a On a race on I had one bird come home that had been shot and four others never came I assume they were The Texas Hunting Guide tells which birds are not pro tected and can be It lists the COMMON PIGEON as one of THE BIRDS WE FLY ARE NOT COMMON It is unlawful to kill a banded I would ask anyone who sees someone shoot a pigeon to call the County Game Warden and report Secretary South Texas Long Distance Racing Pigeon Drainage overdone Dear Editor The facts are Drainage due to development is not the immediate threat The New Braunfels Area watershed is 267 miles Its boundaries are Seima to Smithson Valley to Hays County to McQueeney back to Fully the area would have a population on at least one and a half million The population of New Braunfels is predicted to be in 2040 This means the area could be developed fully in 300 to 500 In that century the increased 100 year storm runoff will only be three inches at Green six inches on the Dry Comal at Live and nine inches on Alligator Creek at the The only area where the increase is more than one foot is on Blieders Creek which can be cor rected by Soil Conservation Service project All of this will happen without consideration of the current bond improvements and if nothing is done to improve Is it wise to subject the local economy to millions of dollars of ex pense and grossly restrictive regulations for a nonproplem maybe 500 years away In why spend for experts when two local engineers on the drainage committee have proposed an or dinance that will more than solve the City is it wise to spend this money I think Do not burden people on fixed incomes and throw this money John Yoe Does anyone remember this Dear Editor In December I joined Boy Scout Troop I in Sulphur Our Scoutmaster was Tapp and he took our Troop on a camping trip every It was in 1920 or 1921 that we camped on the Guadalupe River just outside New Braunfels We made trips to San Antonio to see the the Missions and the Bucknom one afternoon we had a picnic in Landa Park and there were some girls who helped with the entertain They had races of different one of which I remember was stuffing a big pillow into a small but the main thing that I remember was the originality of those girls in presenting a prize to the high point winner and to the lowest The winner received a bar of soap because he had made a Clean Sweep and the lowest received a bottle of I wonder if there is anyone else who might remember that time and inci

who insist on telling him their Or those who become maudlin and sing songs about their Or those who tell old war Or even those who fall off their What he hated most were flying The rule he if something can be somebody will get around to picking it up and throwing Thats People who go in taverns sometimes have a need to throw Some are Some are Others just want to liven up the Theyll usually throw whatever is available at the Glasses and beer bottles are the most popular Others prefer serving peanut bowls and salt Ive also heard of people throwing mustard chili bowling pool hamburgers and hardboiled Sometimes customers who are big and strong will throw those who are small and Shuffleboard pucks are the my bartender friend The person who invented that game was no friend of the drinking I thought I had heard about every possible ob ject that could be thrown in a tavern Then last week I read about something truly unique that was thrown In a tavern in At tint I didnt believe the tiny UPI newi ac But Ive checked It out and it appears to be It happened in Fort in a bar ap propriately named the Fort Laramie Tending bar was Pat the lady who owns the About 25 customer were Including a trucker named Leo Around Leo Froelich said to be a hard and he was putting away the beer pretty this big dog came into the Some peo ple say it was Leo Froelichs Others say it just wandered in out of the In any the dog trotted behind the bar Tebbet said Oh no he And she dragged the dog back to the customers side of the Oh yes he said Leo And he bent over picked up the dog and threw it across the bar at Thats said He just picked up that big dog and threw it at Did it hurt it missed What happened to the dog I dont I guess he just took off after he Maybe there are historians who can recall a similar but this it the first time 1 have heard of someone throwing a dog acrou a Even in John Wayne which always In clude a barroom there has never been a dog thrown at a Or exen a cat The police came and after a bit of kicking and other Leo Froelich went to A judge fined him and told him never again to set foot In the Fort Laramie Saloon With or without a dog But Mrs Tebbet is still upset about the inci She is even more distressed by the publici ty the brawl got in the Fort Laramie paper It was written up as shades of Guramokc and stuff about the ol boys whooping It up In the saloon on a Friday night I try to run a nice but now every tough guy is coming around to see whats going and 1 dont want those kind of people coming In I can understand that So Mrs Tebbet should do Just what they did In the old when tough looking strangers walked Into bare like the Fort Laramie Saloon Somebody should tell them we dont want no We got a peaceful place here and we aim to keep It that way So
