OUR FIRE BOYS ... The Fire Department will celebrate the end of this year and the coming in of the new with a grand New Year’s dance at the Opera House, as has been a custom for many years. Full announcement will be made in our next issue. This is one occasion that is eagerly looked forward by the citizens of New Braunfels, not only because it offers a social event at which old friends meet and greet and new ones are made but because the proceeds go to the good purpose of helping the fire boys with the equipment used by them in the protection of our home, our property and other families. It is one opportunity to show our appreciation of
their duty in our behalf by day or by night

no one was disappointed. There was a break anywhere no one in the audience was any the wiser ... The only child appearing on the program was little Miss Mamie Wamecke, aged eight years and her acting was just perfect, regardless of the fact that she did not know until the eleventh hour that she was to take part.

Fifty six years ago this month coming off an ancient, type press was the first issue of the New Braunfels Herald. Since then the Herald has grown in quality and has been printed in
different buildings while under the management of seven different publishers. In the early twenties the Herald moved into its own building built by the Bells on the Plaza. Here it stayed until May 6, 1946, when on a Monday morning, the doors were opened in a new place on Casten Avenue, a white stucco and tile brick building of modem design.

TOWN TALK by Norma Jo Scruggs ... Bobby Krueger, 11 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Arlon E. Krueger, Lincoln St., is through with his deer hunting for this year and has
had the thrill not too often experienced by old time hunters, as he bagged his second buck of the young season last Sunday at the Walter Dierk ranch, bordering on Comal and Kendall Counties ... Young Krueger, accompanied by his parents on his first deer hunt, bagged his first buck a six pointer, by shooting the animal in the neck and felled it immediately. This was on the 24th of November... Returning to the same ranch the following week, Bobby shot his second buck at about 7:20 in the morning. Bobby was using a new gun his father had purchased for him and was as nonchallant about the whole affair as the most experienced hunters.
