New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 11, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Opinions dave k RAMER, Editor and Publisher WANDA LASATER, Acting Managing Editor Page4A    Herald-Zedunp    New    Braunfels    Texas    ^oday    December    11    ?% Forum Bonds would uphold academic excellence Editor: I would like to express my opinion on the uneoming bond election for NBISD New Braunfels has a reputation of academic excellence to uphold At the present rate of growth not even taking into consideration the projected rate increase* our district cannot continue to comply with state mandates of student teacher ratio unless we allot for the building of more schools and the expansion of existing facilities Our newest building. Memorial Primary , has already reached its maximum capacity and will be adding a temporary building for the coming year in order to remain in compliance with state laws This past week. Memorial was visited by 41 principals from all over Texas who were attending a state convention in San Antonio The consensus of opinion from these visitors was that the soft colors as well as the arrangement of the school produced an atmosphere most conducive to learning This well planned structure was built at a minimum cost to the taxpayers of our district I feel certain that the administration will be as censer vative with our tax dollars on the additional facilities which are now a necessity Let s all ‘reach out and touch the future ” Let's vote “yes” on Pro positions I, 2 and 3 on Dec 12 in the NBISD school bond election Ann Beck Analysis Reality sets in after euphoria of summit passes By BRYAN BRUMLEY Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Reagan and Mikhail S Gorbachev put arms control back on a businesslike footing during the sum mit, signing one treaty, reporting progress on another and agreeing to meet next year come what may The mood was closer to that of their first meeting in Geneva two years ago than that of their second the Iceland summit last year at which for a few dizzy hours they discussed eliminating all nuclear arms The Iceland summit ended in rancor over Reagan’s Star Wars anti missile defenses, a subject that they skirted at this summit but will haunt preparations to meet again in Moscow next summer In judging summit meetings it is said. one should wait one week for the euphoria to pass and another week for the depression to come and go Optimism prevailed as the leaders parted company Reagan called the summit a clear success ” Gorbachev said A good deal has been accomplished ” The euphoria from the Washington summit stems from the treaty signed the prospect of a Moscow summit next year and the general aura of good w ill The depression w ill come when people remember that no progress was reported toward the withdrawal of the estimated llS.uno Soviet soldiers from Afghanistan or that the eight-page joint communique contained only one sentence on human rights And time is running out for Reagan to cut a deal to reduce long range arsenals Gorbachev came to W ashington last Monday ready to sign the In termediate Nuclear Force pact which bans all I' S and soviet missiles with ranges of ;tno to- i miles It is the first agreement to scrap an entire cit ss of nuclear weapons Previous arms control pacts set ceilings on overall arsenals and CCT tarn types of weapons leading the superpowers to scrap outdated systems in favor of more modem and deadly ones Reagan and Gorbachev reported some progress in the far more sweeping draft Strategic Arms Reduction Talks to cut longer range arsenals by up to 50 percent And for the time being Gor bachev has decided to take his op position to Star Wars off the summit table and place it on the shelf allowing physics and politics to wear down American enthusiasm for the project Many scientists including some involved in Star Wars research say the lasers and other exotic weapons envisioned for a space based missile defense system cannot bt developed until the turn of the centurv if at all And for the next year Congress has barred the administration from spending any money that would violate the so-called narrow inter pretation of the 1972 Anti Ballista Missile Treaty, which limits the testing of Star Wars components Gorbachev may revive his opposi tion to Star Wars as negotiators near agreement on cutting longer range weapons Your Representatives U.S.Senator Lloyd benben United States Senate 703 Hart Senate Bldg /washington, D C. 20510 U.S. Keo Lamar Smith United States House of Representatives District 21 SOV Cannon House Washington, D C 20515 U S.

Texas 7H131 ISS* Bi LAMAR SMITH 21st District Congressman The liberal leadership in the Roust* of Representatives pulled a real fa t one last week Fresh from a peaceful Thanksgiving weekend members of Congress with a genuine con* em lur fiscal restraint and deficit reduction were shock ed to find the spec ter of a Congressional pav raise had returned again l^t there ive no doubt I am against increasing my salary and those of other members of Con gress I have opposed the idea since laking office and I will continue opposing It and voting against It at every7 opportunity With so many working men and women in Texas having difficulty making ends meet because their incomes are dei lining it would be highly inappropriate for me to vote to bolster my own income But last Thursday, as House members began debating the most expensive spending resolution in American history we learned that because of a clever procedural trick one vote against the costly measure would at Hie same time Im* a vote in favor of a 3 percent salary increase Un Con gress While this ruse lofted almost ail fist a1 cooser v alives to I ast a vote falsely suggesting support lur a pay raise thankfully later rn the day we were able to shake loose the parliamentary shackles of the tyrannical majority and defeat the pay raise for another day But the lesson was dear The iitierat leader ship knows no bounds when it comes to abusing the legislative process Sadly learning that lesson was nothing new Fxactiy five weeks earlier the House forced through by one questionable vote a measure to grant members of Congress a 13 4 percent salary increase during the next three years I voted then against this outrageous proposal, and also against the surrounding package that called for $12 billion in new taxes but only $ ? billion in spending cuts Obviously it was precisely the wrong message to semi to tax payers looking to Congress to reduce the budget deficit Congress simply cannot ask the American peo pit to shoulder the burden of new taxes, while at the same time giving itself anoHier pay raise T ile extraordinary means the liberal leader ship used to force this legislation through in dit ates that most other House members shared Hus concern At first a procedural motion that couid have led lo .in increase in last*' w.*s soundly defeated but we were not allow ed to remain elated for long To reverse our victory tho.** w!»o want to lax and spend pulled some clever procedural Kicks out of their hag including f libra at ion of a new legislative day” in the middle of the afternoon so they could have anotlier vote on raising taxes I ii billion during the next three years On that one we won again that time with one vole to spare when the balloting ended But no gavel sounded Instead, almost IU minutes later a member was allowed to change his vote and Hu* vote turned from a urn* vote victory to a ora* vote defeat In attempting by hook or crook to force its will on the entire House, the liberal leadership has shown bow little it cares about the impact of its decisions on citizens indeed, it has shown in stead only how much it cares about perpetuating tax and spend policies 14*1 us hope the public outcry over these (ac tics will caus** the leadership to quickly reassess its thinking ;
