His contention that the military pension system was “a scandal an outrage” was "a personal opinion," probably not shared by President Reagan, Stockman told the Senate Budget Committee on Tuesday Defense Secretary Caspar XX Weinberger, while declining to comment on Stockman’s statements directly, told a reporter "there s no scandal that I know of" iii the military retirement sy stem. “I think the military retirement provisions that are in the president’s budget are proper and we have no See SKH KMAN, Page MA Inside Today s Weather Weather forecasters    again predict for temperatures    to dip below freezing tonight, hut no precipitation is expected Today will remain partly cloudy and cold with temperatures rent lung 48 CLASSIFIED    7    10B COMICS    ID CROSSWORD    8C DEAR ABBY    6B DEATHS    2A ENTERTAINMENT    2.3C DOD    17B HOROSCOPE    7C OPINIONS    ID SPORTS    78A STOCKS    2A TV LISTINGS    4D 3A WEATHERBasketball scores Billies 55, Unicorns 54 Cougars 49, Lions 48 Cardinals 58, Rangers 56 Billies 60, Unicorn girls 38 Cougarettes 49, Lady Lions 35 OCBYL CLARK MC RAI. O ZEIT UNG Trail riders head to their campsite at Texas Dance Hall On the road Kiesling, Hall join trail ride to Stock Show Neither rain nor snow nor sleet nor ice will stop the trail riders in their appointed rounds, but their cars and campers may not leave on time. Members of the Comal County Sheriff’s Posse that planned to mosey on up to Kerrville for the Kerr County Trail Ride did not get to leave last Friday because of icy conditions on the road. But Saturday was soon enough to join the six-day ride to the San Antonio Stockshow and Rodeo. Precinct I Constable Werner I esling and his wife have been going since 1970. 'They take their vacation every year to coincide with the trail ride "For 12 years I road a horse in it. Then I bought Annie Beck's old doctor’s buggy built around 1863 and restored it. I road in that for two years and this year I bought a surrey with the fringe on top, got it all fixed up with _____ curtains,” Kiesling said The local justice of the peace said his surrey would also be used in the rodeo parade Friday morning by one of the directors of the livestock Show. Related story, Page 2C "All of the directors will ride in surreys this year and one of them is borrowing mine. I won’t get to stay for the parade because I have to be back at work Friday,” Kiesling said. Another member of the Comal County Sheriff’s Posse that participated in the trail ride was Ii.FT (F’asy) Hall. "I’m going to be ruling my yellow-eyed darlin ,” Hall said "She s a palomino and she’ll be 19 years old this year She’s getting old, but she still has a few trail rides in her yet.” Hall had ridden in the Alamo Trail Ride that originated in Brackettville since 1968 until he changed to the Kerr County. Now the Alamo drive has been discontinued. The Kerr County Trail Ride, in its seventh year, is the sanctioned ride that comes the closest to Comal County. (An unsanctioned trail ride from Austin made a swing through New Braunfels this morning en route to San Antonio). Tuesday the trail riders camped near Bulverde and had a dance at tile Texas Dance Hall on Hwy.

Mattox is charged with threatening to use his public office to stifle the bond business of a Houston law firm. An aide said Mattox was disappointed by the court’s decision, but was ready for the trial to begin. "The general will be disappointed. Rut the situation is, he’s ready to go to trial. Ile wants this whole thing to be aired, and he has no doubt that he will be vindicated,” said Elna Christopher, a spokeswoman for the attorney general. State District Judge Mace Thurman and the 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin earlier denied Mattox's request to throw out the indictment, which the attorney general had contended was inaccurate and unconstitutionally vague. Without writing a majority opinion, the Court of Criminal Appeals today let the indictment stand. One of the appellate judges said he would have favored a review of the indictment if the law allowed. Judge Marvin Teague said it is imprudent to allow the trial to proceed before determining if the indictment is proper. "This is judicial economy at its worst," Teague said in his opinion, the only one written in the case. Teague said Texas voters in 1980 turned down a constitutional amendment that would have allowed See MATTOX, Page 10A Nearing the trail's end4 IC'    M053    IC MICROPLEX INC.’ HITCH WOMBLE p-0.

Herbert C. (’runic, an officer with Jessen Inc. architectural firm, presented two alternatives on the building which would save $15,000-20.000. In response to pointed questions from board member Rudy Renner, Crump explained that most of the overrun came from the unpredicted high cost of putting in utilities and buy ing new fuel tanks. "We thought we could use the existing tanks. We should have taken into account the strict rules on underground fuel tanks in this county,” Crume said. "In all this county, fuel tanks and fuel disposal tanks arc strictly controlled by the Edwards Underground Water District. Because See NBISD, Page 10APlanners want M-1 zoning along I-35 By DANA STELL Staff wriiter Planning and Zoning Commission members will recommend that 200 acres along III 35 North be zoned for light industry, while recommending that a strip along Texas 46 East carry commercial zoning. The commission Tuesday night unanimously agreed on the two zoning classifications for the strips, which extend 300 feet on either side of the road. The new zoning classification follows September annexation of that land into the city. When a new piece of property comes into the city, it carries an R-l (single-family residential) zoning until the Commission and Council agree on another classification. Residents and property owners iii the annexed areas are asked what zoning classification they want and can appear at the Planning and Zoning Commission to defend their position. landowner J.C. Stolte, who lives on III 35 North, said he wanted that strip zoned M-21 heavy industry). "I would Uke to see it M-2 and eliminate some of these things in M-2, rather than have it M-1 and have to beg people to let us come in I with M-2) later,” Stolte said City Council earlier this month called for revision of the zoning classifications stating that M-2 zoning allowed too many undesirable industries. “I see what Mr. Stolte is say ing arid I understand and I also know wliat “I see what Mr. Stolte is saying and I understand...! also know what the feeling of the Council was and it's ludicrous for us to sit here and zone something M-2.”— Joe Hartigan the feeling of the Council was and it’s ludricrous for us to sit here and zone something M-2,” said Commission member Joe Hartigan. "In order to have an orderly program, the highest we can go is M-1 at this time. Commission member Jan Estes suggested the group consider C-3 (commercial) zoning for the strip, to which chairman David Hartmann replied. "I feel that i M-1 > is the best use. The price prohibits residential and I think, some of your commercial, from going out there. Smaller commercial businesses can’t afford to pay the rent." Hartmann added that industrial zoning for the IH 35 strip would draw industries out of the center of town and out of low lying, flood-prone areas. Commission members recognized the rapid growth of the Texas 46 FTast area toward Seguin and zoned that strip, about 175 acres, C-3 (commercial), 'Hie zoning classification on the strip just before the newly-annexed strip is C l (local business), except for one parcel that is zoned M-1 "An unbelievable amount of traffic from 111 ll) to IH 515 through that area is a coming thing, said Ted Symank, a landowner in the area The Texas Highway Department has plans on the board now to make Texas 46 a four-lane road with several years.
