New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 13, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels Herald Zeitung ★ Bell _ Stocks Continued from Page I revenue was requested by General Telephone Co. and approved by the PUC. The Southwestern Bell proposal includes a penny per minute increase for most calls up to 41 miles. The new rates put in effect this week included a IO percent jump — $88 million — in long distance tolls, an increase not sought by Southwestern Bell. Don Butler, who represents the Texas Municipal League, on Wednesday questioned whether the $12.3 million would be passed on by Southwesteren Bell to the other phone companies. “I don’t think we can explain increasing Bell’s rates without explaining why other ratepayers don’t see a decrease in their rates,” Butler said. Southwestern Bell has resisted increases in its long distances rates in recent years because of increasing competition. However, during the recent rate case, testimony showed Southwestern Bell still has in excess of 90 percent of the Texas long distance business. Dean clears way for special election AUSTIN i AP) — Phil Gramm, who drew nine Democratic opponents in the special election for the seat he resigned in the U.S. House, is eligible to run for it as a Republican, the Texas Secretary of State ruled today. State Democratic chairman Bob Slagle complained last week Gramm should not be allowed to run as a Republican, because state law says those voting in a primary “shall remain a qualified member of the party for the duration of the voting year." Slagle said the voting year extends through the end of February. Secretary of State David Dean said, however, the Election Code does not prohibit a member of Congress from “resigning, changing parties and running for the resulting vacancy as a member of an opposing party.” Slagle had said the special election would have to be held after March I for Gramm to run as a Republican, but Dean said the Feb. 12 date could not be changed Gramm's opponents include several he defeated when he was a Democrat, and one well-known entertainer, humorist John Henry Faulk, who says the special election is another referendum on Reaganomics. Faulk anti five other Democrats joined the race for the (Itll District before Wednesday's:) p.m. deadline. A Libertarian candidate also is running for the seat, which represents an area stretching 250 miles from Dallas to Houston. Faulk, 69. a CBS radio commentator who was blacklisted in the 1950s. said here Wednesday that Gramm’s resignation and switch from the Democratic Party last week “is the best tiling that could have happened" to the (itll district. The Feb 12 special election gives voters another chance to tell Washington that Reaganomics isn t working. Gramm's like a weatherman who creates tornadoes, instead of predicting them," Faulk said. “There's only one Republican in this race because everyone else has recession is like wearing a 'Hit Me’ sign to a boxing match,” he said. Gramm easily won re-election last year to a third term in Congress as a Democrat, but resigned last week and left the party after Democratic leaders bounced him from the Budget Committee for his support of President Reagan’s economic programs. Gramm’s major barrier to returning to Washington is considered to be former Dan Kubiak, 44, of Rockdale, who quit the Texas House of Representatives last year after seven terms to make an unsuccessful bid for state land commissioner. Gramm, a 40-year-old former economics professor at Texas A&M, cannot win in the 6th district as a Republican, Faulk said, because "there are plenty of people my age who remember the Depression." Faulk said he would campaign on “protecting the Social Security system, reducing uneployment and encouraging economic recovery." George M. Chamberlain, 34, of Granbury, a structural engineer at Comanche Peak nuclear plant near Glen Rose, held a news conference in Dallas Wednesday to announce his candidacy. The secretary of state's office said it also received filing fees Wednesday from Carl A. Nigliazzo, 36, an economic planner from Hearne; Louis C. Davis. 58. a lawyer from Houston; Joe English, 44, of Granbury, who is retired; and Rex Carey, 43. of Midlothian, a former employee of the Office of Economic Opportunity who finished fourth in a race against Gramm in last year’s Democratic primary. ll. Martin Gibson, 40, a lawyer from Duncanville, is the Libertarian candidate. Other Democrats announcing last week were Joe Agris, 42, a plastic surgeon from Houston; and Bill Powers, 53, a businessman from Navasota who finished last among five Democrats opposing Gramm Newsmakers Farm loan foreclosures fought GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - An agricultural group, saying the recession and bad weather have hurt Michigan farmers, is seeking to block the Farmers Home Administration from foreclosing delinquent farm loans. In a suit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, the Michigan Farmers Home Borrowers Association sought an order forcing the FmHA to act on a 1978 law that allows it to declare such moratoriums. Calvin Lutz, state director of the FmHA and one of the defendants in the suit, estimated that more than half the farmers in Michigan with FmHA loans are delinquent on payments. Georgia execution delayed ATLANTA (AP) - The lith U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled there is probable cause for an appeal by murder convict William Anthony Brooks and stayed his execution, which had been set for today. The three-judge panel ruled Wednesday that a federal judge who denied an earlier appeal had not identified or resolved any of 19 issues raised in the case. But the appellate court also said the state was entitled to a speedy resolution of the case. Brooks, 27, was convicted Nov. 18, 1977, of the murder, rape, armed robbery and kidnapping of a 23-year-old church choir director from Columbus, Ga. Man dies while leaving hospital NEW BRUNSWICK, N J. (AP) An elderly man who had just received tests at a hospital apparently suffered a fatal heart attack as he drove away, smashing through a glass wall and injuring 14 people, officials say. The injured, who were waiting in the out-patient clinic of St. Peter’s Medical Center at the time of Wednesday’s crash, suffered cuts and bruises and, in some cases, smoke inhalation because the car kept running and spewed fumes, hospital officials said. A hospital spokeswoman said the driver, 77-year-old Arthur S. Kuhfahl, had been a patient at the clinic for many years.
