share some select recipes from Mrs Thrifts firstgrade class at Lone Star Primary School in New Braunfels The firstgraders were asked to recite a holiday dessert recipe that they or their mothers use They were asked to provide the recipe on their own without consultation from home Mrs Thrift had the recipes copied and assem bled them for the grandparents when they came for Grandfriends Day Here

and editor of the after curvror Letters to the Editor Dont add a social agenda to militarys duties Editor Sexual harassment in the military Finally we have a commanderinchief with some experience in this matter In fact for a change he has a firsthand knowledge in matters of this nature 1 wonder if the press will give this fact the same attention it has given to the soldiers in the field with respect to this subject Can we expect more of the lowly enlisted man or line officer than that we expect of our president William F Clinton Will the accused military men be allowed to ask for the citizens to donate to their defense fund Will their cases be held in abeyance while they are serving their country such as we are granting to the president Will they be tried in a court and not in the press 1 doubt it The supposedly free liberal press will in the name of equality womens rights and such jump on this like a hound dog in Will the gender gap ladies hold their president to the same moral code as the rest of the mil itary is now being held 1 doubt it I am a retired United States Air Today in History By The Associated Press Today is Sunday Dec 8 the 343rd day of 1996 There are 23 days left in the year Todays Highlight In History On Dec the United States entered World War II as Congress declared war against Japan a day after the attack on Pearl Harbor Qnthladete kl 1776 George Washingtons retreating army crossed the Delaware River from New Jersey to Pennsylvania In 1884 Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception In 1883 President Abraham Lincoln

moved from the Chinese mainland to Formosa now Force enlisted man who is married to an exWAF I can say without hesita tion that this type of conduct existed in my term of service 1948 to 1968 and will exist as long as man is man and woman is woman Whats new about it is we have now placed the burden of a social agenda on the military an unwanted unfair unnecessary and undeserved added burden to carry They have been trained to fight and defend this nation not to be social workers subject to the whims of any group or class of peoples social whims Will all organizations be subjected to the same type of scrutiny Again I doubt it I would like to see the free press personnel given the same scrutiny Bet well find that the only thing in the free press thats not free is the suppos edly free press Seems to me that these investigative reporters could best turn their attention to the character of this nations leaders and not to the peo ple on the lower end of the leadership spectrum Are there unlawful sex practices being engendered in the military the answer is yes Is the same type of conduct pervasive throughout our soci the answer is an unqualified yes One thing we can say for the military its only gender gap is the one we are now trying to create for it Sexual crim inal acts in all walks of life should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law However no single class of bur society should in this matter be singled out for persecution and this is especially true for our military men and women Men and women are and always will be different and subject to the sexual advances of each other I say vive la difference and be thankful for them James J Dobranich Sr Canyon Lake Alcholfroo rivers will bo cleaner safer rivers Editor Last week you featured an article on your front page concerning a drowning victim and the citys involve ment in a lawsuit It quoted Jim Dun man a river outfitter who said most of the accidents that happen on the riv er anyway are Mr Dunman confirmed what Sheriff Bre mer has been saying for years 90 percent of the problems on the river are caused by Mr Dunman also said the outfitters are trying to attract family tourists implying that the problems caused by alcohol are keeping families from using the rivers Listed in the article are a number of requirements specified by the lawsuit The list failed to mention one requirement that would do the most to protect the health and safety of river tourists a ban on alcohol and dis posable items on the Guadalupe and Comal rivers Because of the present permissive attitude the wrong kinds of tourists are attracted to our rivers A ban would attract the family tourists back to the rivers it would also make trouble makers go elsewhere Galveston banned alcohol from their beaches and now it has a desirable family clientele The drunken and destructive tourists who were ruining their tourism industry have left If Comal County wants safe clean rivers to prevent additional river
