New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 24, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas ★ Heritage Continued from Page I Now she knows about the Germans, the Polish, and other peoples who felt the need to band together for mutual support in this eclectic country. “It let me know I wasn’t just in a class by myself,” Harper grinned. Despite her statewide activities, Harper also considers herself very much a part of New Braunfels. And rightly so. “I was born here — not in this house, but right here in this block,” said Harper from her Comaltown living room. “I have never lived anywhere else but this block.” Her parents were Lawrence and Rosie Huntei. She grew up “at the corner of Houston and Commerce,” surrounded by Muellers, Oberkampfs and Papes. In later years. Ruth Hunter became New Braunfels’ first home-grown black teacher. Within four years she was head teacher, or principal, at Booker T. Washington School. “I gave that school a name,” she said. “They were calling it ‘the colored school’ before I started teaching there.” In her 26 years of teaching, she saw black education change, slowly but surely. Booker T. Washington School eventually moved from its original two-rooin building to a larger rock structure on North Street (now the Comal County Developmental Training Center). Margaret Adams, in 1937, became the first student to graduate from Booker T. wearing the traditional cap and gown. “Before, we’d just have them wear a white dress or something,” Harper said. New Braunfels schools integrated in the 1960s. One of Harper’s old co-workers, Margaret Grant, is teaching now at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School. “I was the first. Now, a lot of our children have gone on and done real well,” said Harper proudly. Quite a few of those “children" belong to Maggie Adams, that first cap-and-gowner, who works closely with Harper at the Live Oak church. Velma Adams became a registered nurse, training at M.D. Anderson Medical Center, and now works at Methodist Hospital in Houston. Her brother Wallace is a master sergeant in the Marines. Ruth, a 1976 graduate of New Braunfels High, went on the the University of Virginia and studied drama. She’s now working at a theater in Houston. Roxahne, the youngest Adams, is in eighth grade, and says she’s going to be a technical engineer. Cordelia Grant, daughter of the Sts. Peter & Paul teacher, graduated from Incarnate Word College in San Antonio and is pursuing a social science career in New York. Julius Parker is an Army brigadier general. Harper’s own niece became Dr. Emma Dell Holden, and is teaching at a San Antonio college. Other local blacks have gone into the Navy, engineering, and insurance. But in one way, things aren’t too different from what they were in Harper’s day. There are still only two black teachers in the entire New Braunfels school district — Millett, and Nemmitt Adams, who teaches history at New Braunfels High. Millett, like Harper, was born here, and he admitted that even he feels funny when he visits cities like Houston and sees whole schools full of Negro teachers. It doesn’t look right, somehow. He doesn’t feel that his skin color has handicapped him much. “You want something nowadays, you’ve got it,” he said. And he’s gotten over his high-school feeling of being a “misfit" in New Braunfels. “I go to First Protestant Church. I’m the only black there. And I love it,” he said. If Millett feels the need to hear ethnic music and eat soul food during Black Heritage Month, he just heads for one of the many special events scheduled in Seguin and San Antonio. Stocks ★ EPA Continued from Page I her firing resulted from Mrs. Burford’s mismanagement and suspicions. Questioned by reporters in Tempe, Ariz., Mrs. Burford declined to respond to Ms. Lavelle’s testimony, but continued to deny that EPA’s decisions were “driven by politics.” “Every decision we make is in a political atmosphere,” said Mrs. Burford, who was Anne Gorsuch before her marriage Sunday. “No decision we make can be driven by politics. But we are sensitive to those we serve.” She refused to discuss the dismissals, calling questions about them “extremely rude.” Irater in San Francisco, Mrs. Burford said Congress thinks “that rather than serving their people, their main objective should be to be on national news at least nightly.” “They figured out how to do it,” she said, referring to Congress’ involvement in the EPA dispute. “And it all worked. I have never seen so much media attention to anything in my life...” NEW YORK I API -I Morning stocks: GnDynain 434 424 424 Pubs NwMx 27 264 264 High Low Last Gen Blee 1074 1064 1064 BCA 234 224 234 AMR Corp 22'n 224 224 Gen Food 384 384 384 RepBankCp 334 33 33 Alcoa 3511 354 354 (ien Motors 614 614 61 'n Safeway Str 514 50 51 Ain Motors 74 74 74 Gen Tire 33 324 324 SanlaFcInd 23 224 224 Amor T&T t)8‘ j 674 674 Goodrich 334 334 334 SearsRoeb 294 294 294 Armcolnc 181 n 174 18 Goodyear 294 294 294 ShellOil 384 384 384 AtlRichfkl 42 414 414 GtAtlPac 104 104 104 Singer Co 224 22 224 Beth Steel 214 204 214 Gulf Oil 334 324 324 Sony Corp 134 134 134 Boeing 374 364 374 Gulf StaUt 134 134 134 Sou Pac 474 47 47 Borden 524 52 524 HarteHnk 384 384 384 SouUnCo 164 154 16 Brit Pet 18* 184 184 Honeywell 9512 944 954 SwstBksh 22 22 22 Burlngt Iud 29' > 294 294 lloustlnd 194 194 194 StdOilCal 354 344 354 CaterpTr 45*4 44'h 45 HughesTl 184 184 184 StdOilI rid 404 40 40 Celanese 544 534 534 Interfst 204 204 204 StdOilOh 40 394 394 Centel 334 334 334 IBM 994 984 994 SunComp 314 304 314 Chrysler ti 154 16 Int Paper 564 554 56 'n Texaco Inc 314 314 314 Coca Cola 49 4 49 494 JohnsJn 464 454 464 TexComBn 374 37 37 Coleman 32*4 32 324 K mart 274 264 264 Texas Inst 1624 1614 1624 DowChein 304 304 304 Lifemark 394 39 394 Texaslntl 74 74 74 duPont 394 384 394 Litton lnd 62 614 62 Tex Util 23 22*i 23 EastnAirl.
