move will allow GBRA to increase the storage capacity at Canyon Lake from the current acre feet to acre feet Turn to Lake Page 3A DPS predicts 25 holiday traffic deaths By ABE LEVY Staff Writer The

the year for everyone but each holiday season many traffic deaths that could have been prevented occur on our roads and said Joe Hamilton highway patrol cap tain of San Antonio Our intention in reminding Texans of the grim possibilities is not to sound a discouraging note as people prepare their travel plans but to encourage driving safety by showing what could happen I hope our estimate is too DPS officials estimate 10 traffic deaths will occur between 6 Tuesday and midnight Christmas Day During the same 30hour period for New Years Day they estimate 15 deaths DPS officials stressed that
