the air conditioner this way That seems to be a popular phrase for most locals as we do our best to endure the hot baking Texas heat What is so intimidating about the whole thing is that we havent even reached July yet But hey this is Texas weather and if you dont like it hang around awhile and it will change Have you ever wondered just how hot it is right here in New Braunfels How about Bulverde Spring Branch Saltier I have Its tough being so close to San Antonio Every where you look there is information about San Antonio weather and very little about New Braun fels and Comal County Every once in a while someone from New Braunfels or Bulverde calls in the temperature to a San Antonio TV news station But beyond that there is nothing to say what went on in our neck of the woods Of course things are different here Thais what makes Texas weather so crazy You can stand on one side of New Braunfels or just about any town in the state at times during the year and get down right drenched from rain while a friend across town may be sun bathing by the pool Theres no ryhm or reason We think that is all the more reason to bring you more local weather information The Herald Zeitung editorial staff has tossed the idea around during many a meeting and weve come up with the idea of including our readers in a data gather ing effort Heres how it works Anyone in the New Braunfels Comal Coun ty and eastern Guadalupe County area is eligible to participate All that is required is an outdoor thermometer rain gauge and a telephone Record the days high temperature reading on your thermometer and precipitation reading if applicable on your rain gauge and call the Herald Zeitung 6259144 or Metro 6060846 by 5 so that we may publish your readings in the next days edition Our HeraldZeitung receptionists will write down your information including your name and where you live no street addresses Well publish the information on a county map in the next days edition Well list the name of the con tributor and indicate the approximate location on the map Be sure to mention anything you think to be unusual in your report such as hail or hail size in the event of violent storms wind speeds if avail able blown over trees or even eggs frying on your sidewalk We think it will prove to be an interesting sec tion of the paper and one mat will be wellread But we cant share this information without volun teers from our readership Participation is as easy as dialing the telephone Well only take a minute or two with you over the phone and then you can get on with your day When do we start The Wednesday July 6 edi tion of the HeraldZeitung will be the first day That means well need to hear from you by 5 Tuesday Well publish a few reminders in Stammtisch on Page 1A before then Since theres absolutely nothing we can do about this Texas heat we might as well have some fun covering it huh Mark Lyon is managing editor for the Herald Draft GOP plan drops unversal coverage By DAVID ESPO Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON AP With key committee votes approaching in both houses Senate Republicans are circulating a scaleddown alternative to President Clintons health reform bill that relies on tax breaks for workers and federal subsidies for the poor to expand coverage to the unin sured In contrast to Clintons bill the GOP draft contains no requirement for universal coverage and is stripped of the administrations proposal for employers to finance insurance for their workers It also drops the tobacco tax hike the administration and many law makers favor to pay for expanded health care Financing would come from billion in savings from Medicaid and Medicare over five years Like virtually all proposals under discussion the GOP draft calls for changes to make it tougher for insur ance companies to deny coverage to Today in history By the Associated Press Today is Wednesday June 29 the 180th day of 1994 There are 185 days left in the year Todays Highlight in History On June the British Par liament approved the Townshend Rev enue Acts which imposed import duties on glass lead paint paper and tea shipped to America Colonists bit terly protested the acts which were repeated in 1770 On this date In 1776 the Virginia state constitu tion was adopted and Patrick Henry was made governor In 1941 Polish statesman pianist and composer Ignace Jan Paderewski died in New York at age 80 Analysis those seeking it The emergence of this proposal is likely to give many Republicans an alternative they can rally around when the issue reaches the Senate floor in July It also provides a coun terweight politically to Clintons approach with its reliance on gov ernment mandates and higher taxes to expand coverage to all Republicans were expected to dis cuss the proposal privately at their party caucus today as committees in both the House and Senate labor to send bills to the floor by the end of the week Clintons plan for universal cover age faces insurmountable opposition in the Senate Finance Committee largely because it would impose requirements on employers and indi viduals to pay for coverage An alter native produced by a bipartisan group of committee members sets a goal of getting 95 percent of Ameri cans covered by 2002 A national health commission then would recommend ways to close the rest of the gap Congress would have to take up their advice quickly but would not be bound to carry it out We believe very strongly that when you get up toward 95 percent its very close to universal coverage and whats more it can Sen John Chafee one of the authors of the plan said after the full Finance Committee met to review it The Finance Committee is expect ed to vote on a plan by weeks end and two Democrats John Breaux of Louisiana and Kent Conrad or North Dakota predicted the panel would defeat proposals designed to ensure the universal coverage Clinton wants then approve the general approach fashioned by Chafee and others Administration allies in the com mittee including Sen Tom Daschle are expected to lend their support despite limited enthusiasm for the provisions in the bill Their hope is that Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell DMaine can make the bill more to their liking once it reaches the Senate floor Across the Capitol the House Ways and Means Committee is plod ding toward likely approval late in the week of a bill patterned closely on Clintons approach Democrats on the committee met into the night to discuss consumer protections and longterm care bene fits in their bill They put off for another day a fight over whether to put brakes on the growth of public and private medical spending At the White House Clinton kept up his lobbying for coverage for all the condition he said last winter is necessary to win his signature on a bill Meeting with medical school deans he said legislation should provide basic decent coverage to all The Chafee proposal would change insurance rules and discour age highcost health insurance plans by imposing a tax on the most expen sive 40 percent of plans In 1946 British authorities arrested more than Jews in Palestine in an attempt to stamp out alleged

Old City from the Israeli sector In 1970 the United States ended a twomonth military offensive into Cambodia In 1972 the Supreme Court ruled the death penalty as it was being meted out could
