Mrs Edna f aust, secretary of the New Braunfels Women s Bowling Association This article attempts to trace the history of bowling in this city. especially as pertaining to the feminine influence Bowling first became a form of recreation in IK67 (in pioneer New Braunfels) when one alley was built The game of nine pins was rolled exclusively with a handball containing no holes At this time the king pin was 1-1/2 inches higher than the others and had a knob on lop The ladies joined the men in this '.port in 1X90, when a league was formed which met in the afternoons
Then Friday was designated as “family night” and also became a weekly event The game of nine pins is still enjoyed by the ladies, young and old. on Thursday afternoons... From time to time additions were built and by 1937 the Social Club boasted eight alleys. In the same year on October 18 the first Ladies Ten-pin League was organized with six teams and this group continued to bowl until 1940 when the ladies became so enthusiastic that 16 teams were registered .. On Sept. 12, 1946, the local organization joined the W IBC under the guidance of Mrs Helen Baetz of San Antonio....Record Scores The highest game rolled on the local alleys was on Sept 19.

Ldna Faust, 208....High scoring was repeated in 47 when Lillian Ludwig rolled a 257 game and Valeska Schleicher laced out a 590 series. On Sept 23, Agnes Bose picked the 3-7-10 split, while on a neighboring lane Sis Jung won for her team by picking the 3-9-10 triangle Averages range from 112 to 173. but win or lose, the sport of bowling continues from way back to be a favorite form of amusement.
The fact that it was Friday, and
the 13th in a series of games with Seguin in which they had won the first 12, signally failed to impress the Unicorns as they trampled Seguin Matadors and Seguin hopes of a turn-the-tide victory into the mud of Unicom Stadium last week by a 33-0 score that elevated fJew Braunfels into the second place winner in District 35-A.
