Two teenage passengers from Garwood also were injured in the one-car accident, which occurred at 8:01 p.m. on Texas 46 South at Sangerhalle Road. New Braunfels Police Lt. John Wommack said driver Mary Torres, 16, of Route I, Box 398L, was headed toward New Braunfels from Seguin when she tri^d oj turn right onto Sangerhalle. “She approached it going too fast and hit the guard rail, bent it down, and went over the drainage ditch and creek and hit the embankment," Wommack said. The car hit the embankment nose-first and landed on its top. No citations were issued and Wommack said the department has no estimate on the car’s speed. All four of the car’s »:»ccupants were taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital. Joe Patina, 15, of P.O. Box 188 in Garwood was sitting in the front seat. He was transferred to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where he is being treated for back injuries and head trauma. Passenger Lucy Patina was treated and released from McKenna. The driver was admitted to McKenna for observation and is in stable condition. And 14-year-old passenger Gloria Torres, also of Route I, Box 398L, underwent surgery for a fractured leg. She is in stable condition at McKenna Memorial Hospital. Wommack said the teens are “not the first ones to go into that ditch.” Rangers 10 Angels 5 New Braunfels Herald New Braunfels.

Marion residents have collected more than 140 signatures within their community, well over the required five percent of the subscribers required by PUC to present a request for extended area service. Mayor Clarence Jackson said he plans to put the petition in the mail in the next few days and expects to hear a reply within 90 days. In Marion’s current 420 exchange, New Berlin is the only town residents can call without being charged long distance rates. "Our exchange extends just 3.8 (Tilts toward Schertz and 5.4 miles toward McQueeney,” said city councilman Odis Ixiosier. “I think that’s ridiculous.” lf Marion is included in the 658 exchange, residents could call throughout San Antonio without being charged long distance rates. The 15 to 20 citizens who attended the meeting were enthusiastic about the possibhty of being included in the 656 exchange. "Even if we have to pay four or five dollars more a month, it will be worth it,” said Anna C. Clark, who collected many of the signatures on the petition. In other business, council voted to enter into an agreement with Green Valley Water Corporation to provide an emergency back-up water system to the community. The system, which will consist of adding a valve on an existing water line, will cost $1,000 with Marion and Green Valley each paying $500. The council app : rued a committee to work on next years budget. Council members Betty Purcell and Felix Arambula, Jr. will serve on Ire committee along with Jackson an i City Secretary Monague Brooks. The public works superintendent -report was accepted by the council Jackson and Police Chief Mike Earl informed the council and public that the fireworks ordinance, which prohibits fireworks within the city limits, will be enforced on the 4ti. of July. WASHINGTON < AP) - With the 39 freed American hostages returning home, the Reagan administration is calling for an international boycott of Beirut airport and says it may undertake military strikes against terrorist camps in the Middle East. President Reagan was planning to salute the hostages at Andrews Air Force Base this afternoon in what was described by his spokesman as a brief, simple greeting ceremony on their arrival from Weisbaden, West Germany. All were pronounced in good mental and physical health Monday after checkups at the U.S. military base there. Twenty-nine of the freed hostages and about 40 relatives left the Rhein-Main Air Base aboard a special TWA flight for Andrews. The IO remaining Americans had made “private arrangements.’’ officials said. Meanwhile, the Washington Post-ABC News poll found that Americans approve of President Reagan’s handling of the TW'A hostage crisis, but about four people in IO say the hijacking ended more as a victory for the terrorists than for the United States. The three-quarters of those surveyed said they approved of Reagan’s overall handling of the crisis, according to the poll released today. Thirty-six percent sal » the president was not tough enough The State Department announced Monday it is laking legal steps to prevent American airliners from landing at Beirut International Airport which, it said, has been involved in about 15 percent of all lujaekings over the past 15 years, including TWA Flight 847 on June 14. "We ought to put Beirut International off limits until Beirut puts terrorists off limits," said a senior US. official who briefed reporters on the condition that he riot be identified. Elaborating on the action Monday night, Secretary of State George P. Shultz said the number of American carriers with Hights to Beirut is negligible but that many Americans are ticketed to Beirut by foreign airlines He said this practice will be stopped Shultz said the purpose (rf the action is to prevent the Beirut airport from being a "safe haven” for terrorists.InsideToday's Weather There will be morning and nighttime clouds and partly sunny skies and hot temperatures during the day through tomorrow. Winds will be from the south at 10-15 mph. Highs will reach about 92 with lows dropping to about 75. Yesterday’s high was 90 and this morning’s low was 73. Sunset today is at 8:27 p.m. and sunrise Wednesday will be at 6:35a.m.Seeds Advance Top-seeded players John McEnroe und Martina Navratilova advanced at Wimbledon this morning with relatively easy victories, but the same couldn’t be said for some oilier top seeded players, including Bulgarian Manuela Maleeva and Frenchman Yannick Noah.

Ex-hostages head home WIESBADEN, West Germany (AP) — Twenty-rune Americans freed after being held hostage for 17 days by Lebanese Shiite Moslem hijackers took off from the U.S. Air Force base near Frankfurt today on the final stage of their long journey home. About 300 people, many waving small American nags, cheered and applauded as the freed Americans, accompanieed by about 40 family members, boarded a TWA L-1011 TriStar. The plane was headed for Andrews Air Force Base just outside Washington, and the White House said President Reagan was scheduled to welcome the former hostages at about 3 p.m. EDT. Robert B. Oakley, director of the State Department’s Office For combating Terrorism, said IO of the Americans, who were aboard TWA Flight 847 when it was hijacked June 14, had made “private arrangements.” “Some will stay rn Europe a little longer and a couple have already left,” Oakley said. He did not identify the IO and did not say if those who had left were bound for the United States. U.S. Navy Capt. Jay Coupe, a spokesman for the hostage reception in West Germany, said that one or two of the former hostages might spend tonight at the US military- hospital in See HOSTAGES, Page 14 The senior official who spoke earlier also raised the possibility that the United States will deny landing rights to nations that continue to allow their carriers to do business at the Beirut airport. He said there are no scheduled flights by commercial airliners to Beirut International but that Air France, the Belgian national airline Sabena. a Cypriot carrier and several East European airlines make use (rf the airport. He added that other countries will See REAGAN, Page 14Homeport chosen The Navy’s coveted homeport for the USS Wisconsin will be placed in Corpus Christi, which U.S. Sen.
