ABBY DEAR ABBY Please print this so my feelings of love and undy ing gratitude will reach the young woman who is the birth mother of my new granddaughter My daughter and her husband after years of indescribable pain and disappointment just went to the hospital to pick up their brandnew baby girl Their joy and happy tears would warm the coldest of hearts I want the birth mother to know that her love courage and feelings of loss have not been forgotten in our moments of joy Your baby will know from the beginning that you had choices and you chose to give her life You performed the most unselfish act I can imagine and I question if I would have had your strength of character Saying thank you seems inade quate I wish I could put my arms around you and say I love and I hope my new granddaughter inherits your heart and courage May the rest of your life be blessed as you have blessed ours HAPPY NEW GRAND MOTHER DALLAS DEAR HAPPY GRAND MOTHER Im sure your letter will warm the hearts of tens of thousands of young mothers who have placed their precious infants for adoption Im certain very few of them wanted to give her child away and the sacrifice was made to ensure the baby had a better future than she could provide DEAR ABBY Three weeks before our wadding day my fiance canceled our engagement with only a feeble explanation We had gone together for five years What should 1 do with the bridesmaid dresses that he paid the engraved invitations and my beautiful fitted wedding gown Would it be tacky to keep it for the future DISAP POINTED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR DISAPPOINTED Sometimes good fortune comes disguised as disaster Under the circumstances ask the brides maids if they would like to keep the dresses If they decline give or sell them to a consignment shop and yes give the money to your exfiance Throw away the invitations but because you love it keep your beautiful wed ding gown Have a quality dry cleaner carefully preserve it for a happier wedding day in the future DEAR ABBY I have not seen my problem in your column so I thought I would write and get your opinion Tony and 1 are not married but we have lived together for more than 15 years 1 have always been included in his familys cele brations and have helped them in times of crisis Tonys sister died a few months ago Of course 1 attended the funeral What stuck in my craw was that her relatives from par ents to nieces and nephews were listed as survivors in the obituary but my name was not included I am hurt by the omis sion Considering the length of my relationship with Tony shouldnt I have been named in the obituary LEFT OUT IN MINNEAPO LIS DEAR LEFT OUT Regard less of how close a relationship one may have with a relative of the deceased traditionally only family members are named in thfc obituary Technically you are a friend of the family not a relative Sorry 125 years ago 1875 Translators Carl and Ethel Saur At the Comal County Republican meeting Groos was elected chairman and Fr

Krueger Seales The summer school of Rev G Mornhinweg assisted by his wife and Miss Gertrude Streuer and Miss Wallie Braune closed Thursday with a picnic at the Edwin Simons place on the Comal There were 94 names on the roll who during all the period of 6 weeks attended quite regu larly and certainly have been much benefited The school was a success The San Antonio Public Service Company is con sidering a change in location of the Comal Power Company at New Braunfels to a point on the Guadalupe River near the Planters and Merchants Cotton Mill or to a site in Landa Park The proposed change

Selective Service Act of 1948 according to a release from the Guadalupe and Comal Counties Selective Service Board in Seguin The boys are Vernon M Zipp Hilario Cardenas Marshal Davis Harvey L Soell Rodolfo Castro Nelson E Triesch Leonard G Binz Kenneth J Warnecke and Harvey Pantermuehl Earlier this week a class from the Southwest Texas State Teachers College Industrial Arts Department visit ed one of New Braunfels newest industries The students came down to watch George W House spin copper at his shop called Steincraft on 410 North Seguin Douglas Harris instructor of the class and Dr Victor Bowers head of the department wanted the students to see just how a stein was made from a disc of copper The process is simple said House once you get on to it but it is a fast disappearing art All you do is to place a disc onto a copper spinning machine and force the metal around a mold House made his own mold on which he can fashion his stein and trim it all in one operation After they are sanded and pol ished they are placed on a wheel which is hooked to a fan for glazing The lacquer smells rather strong so the fan is used to suck the fumes out the win dow The Houses just started their business about two years ago Their daughter Mary Ann is now married to Stan Hollmig a former basketball and football star who is now playing professional baseball 25 years ago 1975 IVIyra Lee Adams Golf Visiting their hometown after a twoyear tour of duty on the island of Guam are Maj and Mrs Harvey Haas They were both actively involved in received Vietnamese evacuees at the conclusion of American involvement in South Vietnam When papers were finally in ROSEMARIE LEISSNER GREGORY order and evacuees were ready to depart Guam for the United States or other destinations Haas told how people would write messages on paper plates about where they were being sent and tack them around the camp on bulletin boards and other posting places in hopes that relatives and friends from whom they had become separated would see them Also the wealth the Vietnamese had was converted to gold which they wore strapped to their bodies until a bank was set up on Guam to buy the gold for travelers checks At one point the major estimated that they were handling more than a mil lion dollars per day Haas stated that the most outstanding thing about the entire experience of the evacuation program and receiv ing the people on Guam was the spirit of cooperation with which the military personnel their wives and families and other civilians worked to get the job done The Haas children did their part by babysitting for families on the base who were keeping irregular hours due to the evacu ation campaign Asked how he personally felt about the evacua tion of Vietnamese from their homeland to the United States Haas said he felt it was a good thing He continued Many of the professional people of South Vietnam with training will con tribute in the Others will have a definate need to obtain some training or a skill I feel it is our responsibility to help those Vietnamese who helped us while we were occupying their country Anyone who worked with us stood the chance of not surviving and were often chastised by oth j ers of the It is unlikely however that anyone in the Haas family will soon forget the experiences with the Vietnamese evacuees or the son in brotherhood among all men that they learned there Submitted by the Comal County Historical Commission and the Sophienburg Museum and Join us online at www heraldzeitung com arket plac Times Good Fri Aug 4th Thur Aug 10th j 651
