New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 3, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 6A O Herald-Zeitung Ll Sunday, November 3, 1996 »Heritage Exhibit brings 1930s New Braunfels back to life Don’t miss it. The 1996 Heritage Exhibit is once again ready for all to see. The theme this year is ‘The Thirties: Winds of Change.” It is an authentic reproduction of earlier days in New Braunfels. It is a history lesson with much appeal. Joanna Lewis and Nancy Johnson, co-chairwomen of the Heritage Exhibit, have put a lot of effort into the planning of this yearlong project. They selected just the right people Wait till you see what they have done! You’ll see The House That Jack Built, done by Loretta and Bob Atwood and their committee. It had a Southwestern, Indian-type architecture — quite different for New Braunfels. People in town ate there and saw Indian artifacts on display. You’ll see a display of speakeasies-brewenes, done by Kathy Pfullmann and her crew. The display includes a whiskey still captured by state authorities in Texas during Prohibition. Kathy has directions for making moonshine whiskey posted. One interesting statement in those directions says, “a shortcut to ‘aging’ is achieved in some cases by adding a spoonful of snuff to each quart .” Ugh! And did you know we had a country club here at one time, Wilfred Weinheimer and his group have put together a scene that tells us about the club that opened in March 1932 — located where the present Newks Tennis Ranch is. It was interesting to read that the New Year’s dance held at the club that first year was advertised to begin at nine in the evening and last until five in the mom. Lunch was served at midnight and music was by Don Amado and his musical gauchos. Those who remember the Emmie Seele Faust Library back in the 1930s or ’40s will see a scene that makes you think you just walked into that building again. Susan and Manard Ivy and helpers did that authentic display. Roxolin Krueger Guest Column You see, all this and much more is going on at the Civic Center. It will only be there until next Sunday. Don’t miss it. A group of downtown residents got together and had their own “Tour of Homes.” They each believe that living in the downtown area is really neat. They believe that there is a real rf. > advantage in J being located in that area with much to see and do. It is that bond that caused them to organize into this neighborly group. There is a core group of eight. However, in the future they hope that others will join them. Their plan is to have a monthly get-together, with their first progressive dinner projected for January. At last Sunday’s tour they first gathered at the residence of Wayne Rahe, in the Wright-Rahe building on Seguin Avenue. Then they toured Mark I .auer’s residence above the Plaza Diner (which he owns). The next stop was at Natalie and Jake Hartman’s place above the Shepherd Shop on San Antonio Street. Then the group went to Freddie and David Carr's home on Coll Street, and next to the Earl Stein home in Stein Court. Carol and Earl explained that the remodeled home had been an old brewery at one time. The last stop was at Dee and Patsy McElroy’s remodeled and added onto home on Gilbert Street — across from the Treetops Riverside Grille. Pam and Jim Bedding, members of the group, were unable to participate that day. Their remodeled home is on Comal Street at the entrance to Stein Court. Sandy and Around Town Robert Kelley were also unable to participate. Their home is described as “the lavender house on Gilbert Street.” According to members of the group, it was a great time to get to know your neighbors, to take time out from busy schedules and to be bound together by the common thread of downtown restoration. It was like a far-reaching block party. It was fun. And speaking of downtown. Helen Hoffmann of the Soiree Club came up with u very clever game for members of that club. It happened at the monthly meeting of the Soiree Club. The invitation said come to a “Soiree Downtowner.” Don your walking shoes for a downtown hunt. Gather at the Karbach Haus on San Antonio Street. Members were divided into groups. Helen then directed them on a hunt called Architectural Tidbits. She had taken close-up photos of art deco ornamentation on downtown buildings. Those pictures were blown up and photocopied. Each team had a different set of pictures. They had to match the pictures with a building downtown — a building between the railroad tracks and around the plaza. Examples of features the teams found were names in the sidewalks, a column of the courthouse, a lion atop the Comal Flower Shop, etc. The first team back won the game. The teams compared their findings as they regathered around the beautiful backyard swimming pool at the Karbach Haus. There they enjoyed "make your own sandwiches,” potato salad and delicious homemade desserts. Some of the members present were Patti and Dick Nevitt, Jackie Wersterfer, Rosie and Kirk Gregory, Wallie and Tart Mund, Joan and Bob Reek, Frances and Hurry' Limited Time Offer! s20 Rebate Turntable Microwave Oven Cash Rebates When You t>uy Selected GE Turntable Microwave Ovens Direct From GE ' JI'SMCVV • 1.5 cu. ft. oven cavity, 1000 watts. • Electronic digital display with clock and timer. • One touch Sensor cooking controls including Popcorn.

Party planners were Kathy and Ben Kinney, Joy and Charles Schriever, Helen and Carroll Hoffmann. Three ladies took a grand trip to a faraway place. Sue Bock, Lorene Riedel and Ruth Fischer flew into Zurich and then went by bus to Nice and finally Monte Carlo. It was from Monte Carlo that they did their sightseeing. They took in the palace there and saw die cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. They went to Cannes in France and toured St. Paul de Vence. In San Remy, Italy, they shopped the famous bazaar there, bringing home a few mementos. In Eze they visited a perfume factory. Their Monte Carlo stay included dinner in a very elegant restaurant, Le Cafe de Paris, and, of course, visits to the famous casinos of the principality. They describe the area as beautifully scenic. Monte Carlo is a very small area on the Mediterranean Sea. To accommodate the small land area, the buildings, and even homes, are tall, or at least multilevel. It was a very interesting trip, in a fabulous part of the world. Congratulations to some favorite Have you given to the United Way? New Braunfelsers. Toots (her real name is Gertrude) and Terry Adams have just recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. Their wedding, in 1931, included some names we remember — like Melitta Gruene Hope, Ruby Kutcher Hanson, Lillian Bartels Druebert, Gladys Heitkamp Rust and Esther Wagenfuehr Burt, bridesmaids. The groomsmen were Hubert Mender, Harvey Wagenfuehr, Milton Wagenfuehr, Rathier Dawson, Will Hussung, Henry Specht and Gus “Bebo” Hampe. The Rev. Mornhinweg at First Protestant Church officiated. It was a big month for the Adamses. First the big wedding anniversary and then Terry turned 90 on Oct. 31. He says he celebrated all week. Toota, in her ever-present good spirits, explained that Terry was bom on Halloween and she was bom on April Fools Day. She will be 84 next April 1. Terry is well-remembered by many for the years he worked at the San Antonio Public Service plant here in New Braunfels (now known as the LCRA plant at the entrance to Landa Park). He was with that plant for nearly 50 years, being here when the plant was built and when it was closed. Toota has been a New Braunfels resident all her life. Her Opa, Ferdinand Simon, was among the early settlers of the town. Congratulations to a very neat couple — one we have all enjoyed knowing for many years.
