I^ess than 48 hours after the most destructive case of vandalism in Comal ISD’s history, school was almost back to normal today at Goodwin Primary.
Principal Randy Dry said his staff was still a little short on equipment, but added that crisis had been eased somewhat with equipment loaned from Comal Elementary.
“We thought the copy machine had escaped the damage, but discovered some broken glass inside of it,” Dry added. “We were delighted to find the computer unharmed, as well as the bell system, master clock and public address system. That basically allowed us to still have school, make announcements and ring bells.”
Three male juveniles have confessed to New
Braunfels police of their involvement in the destruction found by a milk delivery man early Monday morning. Damage estimates have not been finalized, but could go well over $50,000.
Two of the juveniles are brothers, ages 14 and 15, and both attend Canyon Middle School. The other is a 15-year-old Canyon High School student.
Detective John Villarreal said Wednesday he expected to file his report on them with County Attorney Bill Reimer and the Adult Probation Office within two weeks.
“We have good evidence on them, besides their confessions. We’re sending some of it to the DPS (Department of Public Safety) lab to get a second opinion, and make our case against them even stronger,” Villarreal said. “But that’s all we can do (when juveniles are involved). Hopefully, the courts will decide this was serious enough to punish them.”
On Monday morning, school children at Goodwin were taken to Frazier Elementary, where Dry said learning carried on as normal as possible. “It was marvelous how everyone pitched in to help clean up. It was non-stop until we got it all put back together,” he added.
Dry thanked the Goodwin-Frazier Parent-Teacher-Organization for bringing sandwiches to those workers, and all the clean-up volunteers for making it possible to open Goodwin back up by 2 p.m. Monday.
“The teachers at Frazier managed to make the best of a bad situation, and we’re grateful,” he added.
“Most of the damage here was concentrated on school fixtures. There were some supply-type items destroyed or missing from the childrens’

Kirkpatrick to leave U.N. post
WASHINGTON (AP) - After months of mystery about her future, U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick told President Reagan today she is leaving the administration to return to titivate life to resume teaching, writing and speaking out on foreign policy issues.
She refused to say whether Reagan had offered her another job in the administration. “During four years I have not commented In public on private conversations with the president. I don’t think it’s ap
propriate,” she said.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick said she tendered her resignation to Reagan in a meeting Dec. ll, effective March I or sooner if a successor is chosen.
She said that if she had wanted “a top foreign policy job” in Reagan’s second administration, she would have remained at the United Nations, which provides Cabinet status and “a window on the world.”
But, Mrs. Kirkpatrick added, having stayed away from her teaching post for four years at
Georgetown University, she thought it was only fair that she resume it again while it was still being held open for her.
White House spokesman ’ l,arry Speakes said her successor would chosen “as soon as possible.” He, too, refused to say if Reagan had offered her another job
A self-described “welfare-state liberal” on domestic policy, Mrs. Kirkpatrick has been a favorite of conservative ideologues because of her hard-line views on foreign policy.

A San Antonio architect will draw the plans to renovate the old New Braunfels High School building. New Braunfels ISH trustees decided Tuesday.
The board hired Steven I-and Tillotson with the Andrew Perez architectural firm of San Antonio as the architect for the renovation of the old New Braunfels High Sc hool into an adminstration building.
Also Glenn Meredith with Ham-Mer Engineers was lured as the engineer on the project. He was the engineer on the air-conditioning of the school campuses this summer and on the new structures being built, both part of the $8.89 million bond issues voters approved in May, 1983
“Because Mr. Meredith has gotten involved in the long-range planning of our district and you might say emotionally involved with our district, I feel we could not find a better engineer for this project.” Bradberry said.
The choice of Tillotson as the architect rested on his work in New Braunfels with the Jahn Building and the Henman Building Rehabilitation as well as work on other historic structures. The Andrew Perez firm is also involved with the restoration work on the (Capitol building in Austin.
In another construction-related item, the board approved a payment to the contractor who air-conditioned the district’s schools last year.
Trustees approved paying Guarantee Plumbing and Air Conditioning $91,409 75, withholding a $7,000 retainer fee and $9,271 owed to tile temperature control system subcontractor. Luke Summerville of the plumbing company requested this until the control system’s bugs can be worked out.
