We’ve selected AA-95-138, COMAL SCHOOL HAPPY DAYS, because it makes us feel good to see people laughing. This photograph is from Seidei Studio, and is of Comal School’s 8th grade graduation back in 1960. Don’t wait for someone else to call. 629-1900. Perhaps someone remembers what seemed so humorous.
AA-95-139 is the 1934 NEW BRAUNFELS BASEBALL TEAM and this Seidel photo was taken in Linda Park. We recognize the faces of some of these gentlemen...but...we need names for our files.
AA-95-137, the UN1CORNETTES, was identified with the help of several readers. Gaston Parsons was so kind to take his rime to come down and help us get our subjects properly identified. Gaston said that thought there is no -ball" in the picture ..it had to be the volleyball team, as they didn’t play basketball at New Braunfels High School in 1951. Our thanks also to Glenn Roy and Rose Mane Zipp who came to our rescue with a very neat list of these gals. Here are our identifications: Front Row: Ora Mae Haas Kowalski (Austin); Bonnie Spicer Per-•fori; Delores Albrecht Saunders (Missouri); Ann Anderson Then an (New Hampshire). Second Row: Betty Lou Duelm Moeller (deceased); Marlene Heidcman Fnesenhahn; Betty Lou Gregory Rust; Ruth Jubela Voss. Back Row: Lonne Meckel Miller, Corinne Gass Zunker; (?); and Dons Matney (Sponsor). Thanks, folks.
AA-95-136, NEW YEAR’S BABY, received so many positive comments. Everyone thought it was the “sweetest”...’’cutest”...’’most adorable”...’’precious” picture. We extend our thanks to Rudy Seidel for his efforts in identification, but this one still remains a bit of a mystery. We only wish to get the correct identification in our files
Just a note...there are several folks who have paid for but have not picked up their FIRST FOUNDERS books. We know that there are those of you who have not as yet purchased one. We have had several people look at this new book and were surpnsed to find their ancestors’ names among New Braunfels’ founding families. Needless to say, they are now the
proud owners of Everet Fey’* wonderful book. Perhaps you should take a few minutes to have a peek at this beautiful .......... »

the wonderful 1995 Sesquicentennial Souvenirs available here. We’re at 200 North Sequin (old City Hall building).
Don’t forget we have many wonderful and useful volunteer jobs open to those of you who have made your New Year’s resolution to do some helpful community service. We have a special need for folks who can do computer entry, research aid, photograph identification, cataloging, gift shop help, and many other tasks. Come down and let us show you around this wonderful facility. We really are friendly folks, and 1995 will be an exciting year for the Archives...the whole community.
In raipontt to Qoorgo Fill tor...
This is the first rime I’ve written a letter to the Editor. I want to answer a letter by Mr. George Fuller who wrote a letter to you several weeks ago and is looking for descendants.
I work at the Archives...belp some in research but mostly translate German newspapers. We have lots of pictures and are trying to find where they belong.
The pictures you have were taken when I was quite young. These names are not familiar, the only one I have heard of was Malone. Amalia Goldbeck was adopted by Hugo Loep who was my greatgrandfather's (Edward Loep's) brother. Amalia married a Mr. Nuhn and later a Mr. Malone. I met her during WW1I when my husband was in the service. Mrs. Malone died in 1958. The Archives have some pictures of the Malone family.
The Archives will accept photographs with pleasure. They will make copies and put some in the Herald-Zeitung for readers to help identify.
