More information at Zeitung office. 75 years ago (1920) Arlene Krueger Seales Dittlinger Rocks Crusher About fifteen years ago, H. Dittlinger organized a company to erect and operate a lime kiln about three miles out from New Braunfels. The first plant was small, but the business was run on a conservative basis and the profits used in increasing its capacity and extending the business through advertising and salesmen until Quite an extensive demand was established throughout the states....Practically a fourth of the rock in the hill surrounding, some fifty feet in depth is high class lime rock. The balance is a hard flinty rock which accumulated in immense piles of waste after the required rock had been hand picked for the kilns. This waste was experienced with and when concrete construction came into its own, it soon proved to be the very highest class of material for reinforced concrete. The capacity of the plant was then increased by the addition of crushers for concrete rock and its growth was rapid from that time on. Miss Laura Belk Nowotny daughter of Mr. and Mis. Aiken Nowotny graduated recently at the Lee Surgical Hosp, of San Antonio making the highest grades in her class both from the local and state boards. 50 years ago (1945) Betty Pfeuffer Triesch All New Braunfels Schools will open for the 1945-46 season on next Tuesday, September 4, following the Labor Day holiday, Superintendent E.A. Sahm announced today. All elementary school pupils will report to their respective grades at 9:00 a.m. Comal County rural schools will begin to get under way for the season next week, County Superintendent Kermit Doerr revealed today....Open-ing on September 3 are Sherwood, Danville, Mt.

Following on September 4 will be Church Hill, San Geronimo, Watson, Thom Hill, Lone Star, Solms, Dittlinger and Davenport Fischer Store will open on September 10....The opening date for the new Bulverde Rural High School has not been set due to incompletion of the new building. Construction is now underway and proceeding satisfactorily, Doerr said, and it is hoped to open this school by the middle of September. The Hunter School which is an SCrrx) nths school will ooen on October Braunfels, Germany, Strangely Akin To Texas Namesake....By Claude Scruggs....It would seem that©apart from a couple of World Wars when we have had a marked dissimilarity of viewpoint-the parent town of Braunfels in Germany and the upstart child, New Braunfels, some 5000 miles removed, show a definite family resemblance....This interesting genealogical fact was demonstrated once again this week when a Chamber of Commerce folder from the parent metropolis showed up here in the possession of County treasurer Oscar Haas. It had come circuitously by way of Pastor Borne, formerly a citizen, from a soldier friend of his now stationed near Braunfels, Germany....The folder, additional copies of which are being requested by the local chamber, is so remarkable like those glorifying the “Beauty Spot of Texas”, both in tone and appearance, that the casual reader might almost believe the sponsoring the same municipality, were it not for the obvious difference in languages. Recent amendments to the Federal Farm Loan Act provide long-term credit service to agriculture. H. A. Ernst, Secretary-Treasurer, recently attended a meeting in San Antonio of secre-tary-treasurers in this part of the state and he states the amendments now permit Land Bank loans of 65 percent of the normal agriculuate value of a farm or ranch also the legislation permits the Land Bank under certain conditions to purchase notes and mortgages from the Federal Farm Mortgage Corporation. This would reduce the interest rate on Land Bank Commissioner loans acquired by the Land Bank from 5% to 4%, and gives the borrower the advantage of having only one creditor. Dr. Edgar A. Grist of Fort Worth, for the past two years chief veterinarian for the Livestock Sanitary Commission of Texas and State Veterinarian, will join the A. and M. College Extension Service headquarters corps of specialists on September 16 with the title of poultry veterinarian. While his work will be directed especially to solving poultry disease problems, Director Ide Trotter said in announcing the appointment, other pressing animal disease problems could also be dealt with. One of the stiffest and most destructive hurricanes in the history of the Gulf Coast had blown itself out northwest of Houston Tuesday night after hovering off the Texas coast for five days and moving inland on Sunday....Corpus Christi, Port Lavaca, Palacios, Rockport, Bay City and El Campo were hard hit and suffered millions of dollars worth of damage. Crops of rice and cotton were apparently almost total loss throughout the area. Houston was drenched with a 15-inch rain in 24 hours. The hurricane varied from 70 to 135 miles per hour in its center. In a comparatively light vote of less than 700 last Saturday, Comal County voters approved the Soldier vote amendment by a two to one majority, 413 for to 238 against, but turned thumbs down on the other three by whacking majorities....Increased pay for state legislators met with the most disfavor from local voters who buried it deep by a vote of 82 to 562 against 25 years ago (1970) Myra Lee Adams Goff Royce Brown Jr. has been awarded the honorary title of “Colonel” after successfully completing a “fast-moving, hard-hitting course in auctioneering” at the Superior School of Auctioneering in Decatur, 111. “Col. Brown has been instructed by the top auctioneers in the profession and is now ready to take care of the needs of community,” a release from the school reports. Air Force Maj. Harvey J. Haas of New Braunfels has been assigned to the AFROTC detachment at Texas A&M University ....The son of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver O. Haas, 286 Napoleon, is associate professor of aerospace studies.

LOOP 410 SANANTONIO AA-95-200 By JANE JACKSON JOHN MOLER Photographer Special to the herald-Zeitung Sooner or later the time comes when success is “not in the cards.” EAGLES AUXILIARY LADIES-1962, AA-95- 198, did not gain the response we had hoped for. It seems that no one could remember all of the names of these ladies. However, Carol Dietel and Bernice Ebensberger, Eagles Auxiliary members, have volunteered to take a copy of the photograph to their meeting next week. Thanks, girls. We also “bombed out” on AA-95- 199, BEEHIVE COIFFURE. Such a shame...back into the boxes of the “unidentified.” Martha Philebar paid us a visit with this photograph. SCHOOL DAYS-GERONIMO SCHOOL, AA-95-200. It seems that Herb Eberhard found this picture in his mother’s trunk, and they were wondering if we could find out what the occasion was. It would be very difficult to get full identity of the subjects, but perhaps we can come up with some answers to the questions about this: Is this building still in existence? Could this be graduation day for these lovely children? Why are AA-95-201 those beautifully dressed ladies “hanging out” of the windows of the schoolhouse? How was the group of ladies standing beneath the tree so fortunate to keep the men from grabbing the only shady spot? Why are all the gentlemen standing so far away from the pretty ladies? This photograph was taken by A. Hildebrandt, photographer from Seguin. AA-95-201, DANCING DOLLS, is a real “keeper.” This one is a Seidel photograph from 1962. Bet we get IOO percent identification on this one. KEEP READING...KEEP REMEMBERING...KEEP CALLING... SOPHIENBURG ARCHIVES, 200 N.

NOTICE OF EFFECTIVE TAX RATE 1995 PROPERTY TAX RATE IN THE COMAL FRESH WATER SUPPLY DISTRICT This notice concerns 1995 property tax rates for the Comal Fresh Water Supply District. It presents information about three tax rates. Last year's tax rate is the actual rate the taxing unit used to determine property taxes last year. This year's affective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. This year's rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers can start tax rollback procedures. In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.
