Ludwig, agent. 75 years ago (1920) Arlene Krueger Seales A newspaper man is always pleased to note any improvement made in his town and in this connection it affords the Herald pleasure to write of an improvement that was made in New Braunfels last year - the building and furnishing of the new Comal Hospital, which stands ai a monument to the energy and public spirit of the two men who planned and carried it to a successful completion - Doctors Hagler and Bergfeld, enterprising and experienced physicians and surgeons of New Braunfels....The dimensions of this beautiful building, located on the bank of the overflowing Comal and on a plat of ground comprising some three acres, are 44X80 feet, two stories and basement, with one 10x44 foot sleeping porch. On the first floor are IO patients rooms all models of neatness and sanitation, and IO on the second floor. Also on this first floor it a large an completely equipped operating room as complete as can be found in the larger cities, with a smaller one adjoining. There is a sterilizing room 12x28 with steam pressure and also an electrical sterilizer...In the basement in a room 24x44 is an up-to-date laboratory. An electrical exOray equipment has been purchased and is now on route. There are eight bath rooms and one large ward on the second floor that will accommodate 20 patients....In the dormitory are accommodations for 12 nurses. The building throughout is furnished with hot and cold water and in the basement is a heating plant with wiring for electrical heating also. Wednesday evening at 8:15, Mr. Stanley M. Jett died at the Comal Sanitarium after an illness of some months. At one time he was superintendent of the waterworks here, succeeding his brother-in-law, Mr. Mitchell. From here the family moved to Port Arthur, then to Sanders and later to Austin, where he was taken sick, and from there he was taken to a San Antonio hospital here some six weeks since. At times he seemed to rally and the hospital physicians had hopes, but a complication of ailments was too much for them to overcome and the patient passed away Wednesday evening. He was married some five years since to Miss Milindi Moeller, daughter of City Marshall Moeller and wife, and the widow and two children survive, a son aged about two years and six months and a baby daughter not more than seven months. Funeral will take place at 10:30 a.m. from the home of Mr. Ed. Moeller and wife, and burial in Coma-Itown cemetery. Miss Roma Koepp entertained with a two course luncheon on New Years Day. Those enjoying the evening were: Norma Voelcker, Alice Heinen, Melanie Meckel, Elsie Galle, Elsie Waldschmidt, Virginia Guinn, Herman Benoit, Lottie Nebergall, Antoinette Clemens, Roland Koepp, Arnold Richter, Raymond Vogel, William Keienberg, Alfred Galle, Arnold Gerlich, Helmuth Tausch, and Franklin Penshom. Unless stopped by injunction or other court proceeding, intrastate passenger rates in Texas will be 3 cents a mile plus a 20 per cent increase beginning March I next. This was learned in railroad circles yesterday. Rate clerks in the passenger departments of general offices of Texas railroads have been working for some days on the new schedule of fares. 50 years ago (1945) Betty Pfeuffer Tnesch Diana Lynn Beaver, 8 lb. New Year’s baby, broke all existing local records by arriving at the New Braunfels Hospital just three minutes past the stroke of midnight, at 12:03 a.m. on January I, to be crowned Queen and Miss 1946 Comal County Welcome and Congratulations and happiness to you, Diana Lynn, Miss 1946. Four years after the fight with Japan began - and four months after it was all over - Comal had its first war scare with the reported arrival of a “Japanese balloon bomb”. The incident, which took place Monday on the H.A. Rice Ranch in the Sattler area, brought FBI agents, foreign newspaper reporters, and anxious army authorities to the scene of a U.S. Weather Bureau balloon’s landing.... The two-feet-in-diam-eter gas bag was discovered by Rice in a clump of brush and reported to County Attorney A.J. Luckett. From there the FBI and army authorities were notified, Sheriff W.A. Scholl, who found himself, a little later, the focal point of the investigation reports that there was considerable excitement among Sattler residents until the true nature of the balloon was disclosed Curt E. Schmidt of New Braunfels has been appointed Comal County director for the 1946 March of Dimes campaign to carry on the work of the National Foundation For Infantile Paralysis in its battle against the dread crippler. Again ignoring the calender, Comal’s weather this week continued to afford citizens mid-summer climate in the dead of winter, according to Weatherman Walter Stein who doesn’t consider 32 degrees much of a cold spell. And the thermometer dropped that low only once - New Year’s morning. Mostly the indicator stayed in the 70’s, with Wednesday’s 77 the maximum. Plans were complete today for the coming meeting Tuesday night in the district room of the Comal County Court House, to effect a New Braunfels program. The meeting will be held at 7:30 and is open to everyone....The Chamber of Commerce organization committee advising with Mayor A.D. Nuhn, some time ago decided that any centennial program should be planned an executed only with all local people and groups sharing the responsibility.Get all the local news in the Herald-Zeitung.

When multiplied by thousands of families, this creates a "peak" in PECs power consumption between 5 a m and IO a.m., especially on weekdays. These peaks, or high points in electric consumption, lead to higher generating costs-which show up on your electric bill. The good news is that peaks can be reduced through voluntary load management. You use the same amount of electricity but not within peak hours. Reducing peaks also helps to avoid the need for expensive new power plants in the future.
