New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 21, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Prom night now promises less HeraldZeitung g Wednesday May O3A Texas today DEAR ABBY Because prejudice and discrimination are so hurtful I think we should do away with them in our public schools Abby what is more discriminatory than the senior prom The poor the frugal the shy the unpopular the plain and the dateless are excluded Many parents cannot afford all that is involved in this rite of passage formal wear corsages limousines The kid who is saving his cash for college the student who has no significant is a reject on the eve of what should be a joyous camaraderie including all members of the senior class Instead this occasion has too often turned into a boisterous bash with overnight parties drugs drunk driving and death The above combination has made a farce of what was once a sensible meaningful event One father hired a horsedrawn carriage to transport his daughter to the prom Im ready for a lot of flak in response to this letter but I feel that there are many parents and students out there who agree with me but are afraid to express it D B IN OLYMPIA WASH DEAR D Every year the newspapers carry pictures of handsome young men and beautiful girl graduates who have died in fiery automobile crashes on prom night Rather than completely doing away with this rite of passage it should be rethought Some schools have already done this by transporting their young people to and from the dance or party in buses and keeping the celebration alcohol free Others have turned it into a special night out to a play a theme park that doesnt require a date I would be interested to hear what other schools and parents are doing to safeguard their young people on prom night DEAR ABBY Who says whats right when a woman wants to have a formal second wedding My sister has been married once before Her wedding was very large and very formal She is now engaged again to a young man who has never been married Her wedding party started out to be six including the groom We will all gowns and tuxedos New Braunfeis Farmers Market Opens May 23 pm at County Fair Grounds OPEN EVERY FRIDAY AFTER THAT Liquors WINES

Peppermint Buiterthoii McCormick Vodka This is the late 90s and were heading into a new century My sister feels there is nothing wrong with a second formal wedding as long as its the first for the groom and I agree If its the brides first wedding and the grooms second no one would comment But when its the brides second and the grooms first why must it be small and informal Shouldnt it be up to the bride and groom rather than anyone else My sisters wedding will be small with a few friends and the immediate family but some of the traditions will be included such as throwing the bridal bouquet first dance dollar dance photographs fatherdaughter dance etc What are your thoughts on this FORMAL OR NOT BOWDOIN MAINE DEAR FORMAL OR NOT I agree with your sister Since it is the grooms first wedding I see no reason why he should be penalized because his bride has been previously married The old rules about what is appropriate have relaxed in recent years It is perfectly acceptable for the couple to have a formal wedding with ail the trimmings My congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple By The Associated Press One black student enrolled for fall UT law class DALLAS AP Only one black student has enrolled at the University of Texas Law School for its freshman class next fall and educators say a federal court decision banning racebased admissions is to blame UT Law School dean Michael Sharlot told The Dallas Morning News in Wednesday editions that one black is part of the class and only 12 Hispanic students have paid tuition deposits to secure their places in the class Its Sharlot said If more minority students agree to enroll it would only be a handful And not everyone who has sent in their admission deposit ends up About 30 to 40 blacks and 50 to 65 Hispanics have traditionally been among approximately 500 new students who enroll each fall at the Austin law school Educators have predicted that the antiaffirmative action ruling triggered by admissions policies at the UT school would cut minority enrollment House sends drivers license fees bill to governor AUSTIN AP Texans would pay a onetime fee for their drivers license until they turn 60 and would renew their license every six years instead of every four under a bill sent to Gov George W Bush Under the measure by Rep Henry Cuellar DLaredo a graduated scale would go into effect and younger drivers would pay a higher onetime fee for a license than older drivers The House approved Senate amendments to the bill on a vote of 9147 on Tuesday Bushs office said the governor hadnt yet decided if he
