Translator: Lottie Nebergall Miller On Saturday night fifty bicycle riders, women, men, and children, took part in a torch-light parade which was sponsored by the bicycle club. The bicycles, decorated with lanterns formed a long line and soon followed their leader in making crisscross turns as they rode down the street. From a distance the parade looked like a swarm of lightening bugs. All who watched it were entranced by it.

Carleton will appeal to the Third Civil Appeals, in Austin attorney H. A. Triesch asserted afternoon. In the suit Dierks charged that Carleton’s locking gates through the Carleton ranch denied his right of way causing an unreasonable inconvenience.

Antonio, and the Rev. Hugh Palmer, Seguin, will be present...Members and friends of the church have been Mrs. Roye

Professor Victor Rase, New Braunfels High band director, has added another achievement to his record with the composing of an alma mater for N.B. High School. Both words and music were written by Rase...The alma mater was presented publicly for the first time at the final football game of this season with Seguin. The words: On, New Braunfels Hi we sing to thee of love and loyalty, Our hearts are true with love for you, And loyal we shall be. Our comradeship we’ll ne’re forget. Our joyous days of yore; The blue and white for which we fight, Shall live forever more.

Arkne Rruegcr Seales Camp Wamecke is certainly a busy place, getting in shape to handle the crowds of campers next season. It is located so nicely, being just within the city limits and having the beautiful Comal river running thru its bounds in two different places. At one point it adjoins the city swimming pool and at the other point another larger pool is being planned for the coming season. Mr. Wamecke says that applications for summer camps for the season have already exceeded fifty and he hopes to have enough tent camps erected on the land recently leased from Ed. Simon to accommodate those who come for short periods....The little screened houses which are being erected about the camp are painted white and green and are being beautified with trees and shrubs and thousands of banana trees thrown in for good measure. A large hall 75 x 125 has been added for use when the weather does not permit outdoor amusement, with a good dance floor and piano and a soda fountain. A garage is under construction, a Japanese pavilion about completed, some twenty summer cottages nearly completed, and hundreds of rustic chairs and benches are being placed. The enlarged camp will be divided into three sections, the first being the old camp which was so popular the past summer, and running up to the public road, then a section extending from the road to the banks of the Comal and a third section across the Comal which will be devoted to tent camps.
Comal Sanitarium has recently installed the latest and largest X-Ray machine made, the New Improved Snook. The writer examined the first machine out and at that time it was almost impossible to believe that the bones in the human body could be seen by use of a mechanical instrument. The machine at the Comal Samtanum cames a voltage of 25,000 and we saw it throw a spark twelve inches long and Dr. Bergfeld states that it will do even better at times, but that was plenty as it makes a noise like a Gatling gun when only extended to that length ...The instrument with its equipment for treating cancer and other ailments heretofore believed incurable, occupies two full rooms in the sanitarium and Dr. Bergfeld took a special course which enables him to get the full results for which the machine was designed. It is also used for photographic work to ascertain interior secrets of the body and being more powerful and flexible than any machine previously made, it gives clear pictures of the most minute particle which with former machines were more or less a matter of guess work.
