4-H roundupAward winners named from annual stock show
By MIKE BARBOUR
County Extension Agent
Comal County 4-H members, parents and volunteer adult leaders gathered at the Fairgrounds last Saturday to watch 4-H’ers “do their stuff.” The occasion was the second annual 4-H stock show, and it was very rewarding for a number of local boys and girls.
The show began with showmanship demonstrations, the first of which was sheep showmanship. Reginald Stapper and Dena Harris were good examples for young showmen, and Donna Kaderli was the commentator. Donna gave the audience the benefit of her expense-paid trip to the statewode sheep clinic at the Texas 4-H Center in Brownwood.
Byron Setser, Kevin Kreusler and Glenn Grimm then gave a steer showmanship
demonstration as Ronnie Wunderlich provided the discussion. Byron, Kevin and Glenn then doubled as hog showmen while Wesley Odell served as the commentator.
Two judging contests were next on the program. The rabbit judging contest, which consisted of practical and written sections, was won by Margie Williams. Troy Moss was first in the senior division.
The livestock judging contest consisted of live evaluations of steers, lambs and hogs. In the senior division, a four-way tie was broken by presentation of oral reasons to substantiate the way the four individuals placed the steers. Becky Eckhardt was the winner of the seniors and Ryan Richter was the first place junior member. Kevin Kreusler took top honors in the adult division.
The livestock show began with the lambs. In the fine wool breeds, Becky Eckhardt took breed champion and Lance Jonas had the
reserve champion. Lance also showed the champion crossbred lamb, which became the reserve champion lamb of the show. Judi Jessee had the reserve champion cross lamb. In medium wool breeds, Ryan Richter had the reserve breed champion. Clay Mathis’ lamb was breed champion and grand champion of the show.
The market hog show followed the lambs. In the duroc breed, the Syamken brothers did very well — Scott showed the breed champion and Brian’s hog was reserve heed champion. In the Chester white classes, Korvan Kreusler won breed champion and Danita McIntosh won reserve breed champion.
Colby Goodson had the breed champion and Scott Bundick showed the reserve breed champion in the other pure breed class. Colby also showed a crossbreed hog to reserve grand champion honors, and Diron Wunderlich’s
cross was grand champion hog of the show.
The next ever was the steer show. Tracy Stoepler showed the breed champion and Adam Laubach’s steer was reserve champion of the European breeds. Stacie Walleck showed the reserve champion of the British steers and her brother Michael won reserve champion of the American breeds. The Wenzel boys had a good day, since Roy’s pure white shorthorn was reserve grand champion and Don’s Brangus was grand champion steer.
The final event was showmanship. Randy Harris won the senior steer showmanhsip and Michael Walleck won junior steer showmanship. Diron Wunderlich was the top hog showman of the seniors while Bryan Syamken was the first place winner of the juniors. Donna Kaderli was the winner of the senior lamb showmanship and I^ance Jonas was the top junior lamb showman.

AFS is a privately-funded, community-based organization. It has 53 countries participating iii three different exchange programs. But its roots
are something different: it started as a volunteer ambulance service during World War II.
After the war was over, members thought one good way to promote world peace w as to make it possible for young people to experience life in a foreign country.
The first foreign students came to America in 11*47, and the first American student went abroad three years later. Since then, more than 100,000 students have participated in AFS programs.
The Hosting Program is the largest. It brings more than 3,300 foreign students to the United States each year to live with families. The students arrive in late summer and stay ll months.
Americans Abroad offers American students the chance to spend a summer or a full year in another country.
The U.S.A. program involves travel within the United States. Students attend schools and live in communities significantly different from their own.

Board seeks change to protect Edwards
Most people think heart disease happens only in the elderly.
Put your money where your Heart is.
Directors of the Edwards Underground Water District have made the district’s first transfer of money to the new surface water development fund.
At a San Antonio meeting Tuesday, directors also voted to ask for expansion of Texas Water
Development Board rules to protect the Edwards Aquifer.
By unanimous vote of the 13 directors present, $1.2 million was transferred from the district's general fund surplus to the surface
water fund. The budget for this fiscal year estimated a total of $2.1 million ultimately will be put into the fund in 1983.
The 15-member board, which created the surface water fund at the Sept. 14 meeting, indicated at the time that there would be a change of emphasis in the future from the recharge dam concept for the aquifer to one of providing surface water to supplement the underground reservoir.
In other business, the board voted to request
• Castroville: 696.5 feet, up 1.1 feet.
• Hondo: 725.1 feet, up 0.4 foot.
• San Antonio: 666.2 feet, up 1.8 feet.
• Kyle: 564.5 feet, down 0.4 foot.

Local Edwards well shows slight rise
Water levels changed very little at the end of December compared to the end of November, in the index wells of the Edwards Underground Water District.
Spring flow was mixed according to the district’s San Antonio office.
Comal Springs in New Braunfels increased four cubic feet per second < cfs) to a flow of 266 cfs. San Marcos Springs dropped six cfs to a flow of 127 cfs.
Leona River Springs were flowing at a rate of 31.3 cfs earlier this month.
Following are the water well levels shown in altitude above mean sea level:
• New Braunfels:
625.2 feet, up 0.2 foot.
• Uvalde: 877.1 feet, up 0.2 foot.
• Sabinal: 775.0 feet, down 0.4 foot.
that the Texas Water Development Board rules be expanded to include activities in the drainage area abutting the northern and southern boundaries of the Edwards recharge zone, as it is presently delineated, in order to prevent contamination of the aquifer.
Tom Fox, EUWD general manager, will present the request at the Texas Department of Water Resources annual hearing at 9 a m. Monday in San Marcos.
The board adopted a final draft of legislation to control the transfer of water from the district to users outside the district.
Fox reported to the directors that the EUWD legislation will be sponsored in the senate by Senator John Traeger (D-Seguin) and in the House by Rep. Gerald Geistweidt of Mason, whose district includes Uvalde County.
