fcis, and it underwent renovations again in the 50s and 70s.
“We've just over collected with all the history we've got,” said Oatman. “This area has such a rich past its bud to house it all in one building.”
In 1975, the association began the project of archiving the area's past. Iris Schumann, who has volunteered at the museum and archives for over 20 years, said she was part of that project
Schumann said she began volunteering in 1974 when she was a history graduate student at Southwest Texas State University.
“At some point along the way, I said to one of die ladies, if you ever have someone interested in wanting to organize an archive, I have an interest in helping with that,” said Schumann.
Schumann was eventually taken up on her offer, and in 1982, the Sophienburg Archives was opened on a part-time basis to the public.
Today, die archives are located in the old city hall building, and the museum remains in its original building. Oatman said the museum has about IOO exhibits, and the displays change three or four times a year to encourage return trips. Included in the museum displays are a history room, a tools exhibit, the Lands family carriage, and replicas of early businesses.
“We received most of the artifacts from the community over the years,”
said Oatman. “A lot of the artifacts are given to us through the families when they want to preserve it for the history.”
The archives contain a variety of paper, documents, books and photographs. Oatman said the photograph collection alone contains over a million images. Oatman said many of these documents came from families, county records and in-house research.
“We’ve actually become known as a German immigration research center,” said Oatman. “Our first query over the internet was a man doing research in Germany. ... Because of the information we found for him, he came here to do research.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the staff at the archives is volunteers and that building would not run without the volunteers,” said Oatman. “There’s a lot of competition in town to volunteer, and we’re really going to need to get more people involved in the future to help the current volunteers.”
The museum, which is located at 401 W. Coll St., is open IO a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and I to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $1.50 for adults and $0.50 for students. For information, call 629-1572.

A hay ride along the Cibolo Creek, a DJ and a sunrise breakfast campfire will enliven the party as well. Door prizes and lots of food and drink will also be offered.
Since its inception seven years ago at CHS, the event has grown tremendously, Allen said.
“Each year it has grown bigger and the event has gotten more people involved,” Allen said. “Most people recognize there is a need for kids to have a drug- and alcohol-free party. The only way to afford this event on this level is tor everybody to pull together.”
Allen said CHS students and percntt had raised the money for the event by having a nine pin bowling tournament at Freiheit, a powder puff football game, a senior Sadie Hawkins dance, a golf tournament and discount cards for places around town.
“Our main fundraiser has been personal bricks that will pave the main areas connecting the school to the new facility which they are building, which is the commons and cafeteria,” Allen said. “We will be taking orders on that by May 15.”
People wishing to have their personal inscriptions on the bricks can buy one for $30 or two or more for $25 each.
Smithson Valley High School's Project Graduation party will be held at University Bowling in San Antonio on Friday, May 29, Nancy Wagner, Project Graduation chairwoman said.
The students will be bussed to the event which will be held from midnight until 6 a.m.
“There will be bowling and we will have a casino night,” Wagner said. “At the same complex is the Crystal Ice Palace, which has two ice rinks. We will arrange for the students to have broom ball (a form of hockey) in one and the other for ice skating.”
The casino area will have a blackjack table and roulette wheel tables. Food and a DJ will also be provided
The play money students win from the casino can be used to buy prizes that will be auctioned off at the end of the night.
The party will end with a breakfast buffet.
“It is real important to offer kids a last chance to be together before they go their separate ways and to provide them with a safe alcohol free party and have a lot of fun,” Wagner said.
Luby’s Cafeteria in New Braunfels helped by donating a percentage of its profits to all three schools Project Graduation parties.
For more information on contributing to the Project Graduation parties contact Reneau (625-7612), Allen (625-2016) and Wagner before 4:30 p.m. (904-7273).

WASHINGTON (AP) — Three years into the North American Free Trade Agreement, U.S. farmers and agribusiness are exporting record levels of goods to Mexico and Canada, a top Agriculture Department official told Congress on Thursday.
While it’s too soon to grade the pact’s overall impact on agriculture, said the head of USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service, the early indicators have been promising.
That said, department officials and lawmakers noted that sticking points remain between the three trading partners — among them Canada’s 300 percent tariffs on U.S. dairy and poultry products and Mexican delays
in processing U.S. grains and livestock.
And, remaining agricultural tariffs won’t be fully phased out until 2008.
“If we measure progress by the issues still on the table, we have a long way to go under NAFTA,” Foreign Agricultural Service chief August Schumacher Jr. told the House general farm commodities subcommittee. “But if we measure progress by the issues that are resolved, by the growth in access, growth in sales, particularly growth in the market share ... by these measures NAFTA is broadly working.”

Texas House OKs second mortgage
AUSTIN (AP) — Texans could take out a second mortgage on their homes for almost anything they want under a proposal OK’d by the House Financial Institutions Committee.
A similar measure already has passed the Senate.
“For the first time in the history of Texas we will have the same rights as other Americans to use our own property as we see fit for financial planning,” said Rep. Debra Danburg.
