New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 21, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas _•    New Braunfels Heia\&Zeitung Tuesday, June 21,1983 3Protest stopped after Pope's speech WROCLAW, Poland (AP) — Police routed demonstrators in the southwestern city of Wroclaw today, hours after Pope John Paul II blessed the “thirst for justice” of Poland’s workers and their struggle for rights. After the pope spoke at the Wroclaw hippodrome. several hundred young people marched through the city center, where they were intercepted by helmeted riot police backed by a water cannon. A line of police vehicles, sirens wailing, spilled riot troops in front of the line of marchers as a helicopter circled overhead barking orders to “go home peacefully." As the helmeted police jumped from their vehicles, people watching from high-rise apartments showered them with verbal abuse, shouting “Gestapo” and whistling derisively. The marchers dispersed peacefully, but a heavy concentration of police remained in the area. The encounter came as the pontiff visited the Wroclaw cathedral. In his sermon at the hippodrome, the pope said, “I would like to preserve this just hunger and thirst of the great multitudes of my compatriots from all that would distort and weaken it. Meanwhile, in Gdansk, a spokesman for I>ech Walesa said the chief of the outlawed Solidarity labor union was given a three-day leave of absence from his job at the shipyards to meet the pope in Krakow on Thursday, the pontiff’s last day in Poland. The police encounter with the demon strators came as the pontiff visited the Wroclaw cathedral. In his sermon at the hippodrome, the pope said, “I would like to preserve this just hunger and thirst of the great multitudes of my compatriots from all that would distort and weaken it. “This cannot be destroyed or suppressed,” the pope told worshippers from Wroclaw, capital of Lower Silesia and a stronghold of the outlawed Solidarity labor federation. The pontiff’s political comments have angered the Polish authorities, who agreed to the papal visit after the nation’s powerful Roman Catholic church said it would be strictly religious. One million people — according to the official Interpress news agency — jammed the Hippodrome horserace track under a baking sun to hear the pontiff on the sixth day of his eight-day Polish homecoming. Police were out in force, and just one Solidarity banner was in evidence — “Wroclaw Solidarity,” it read — compared with the dozens that have fluttered other papal masses during his visit. John Paul spoke from a huge altar built between grandstands where two weeks ago bettors were cheering horses to the finish line. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice,” he said, his voice rising emotionally at the New Testament words. “I am thinking now of the people who work hard every day, I am thinking of rural Poland ... the men and women of science and culture .... the workers of ‘Pafawag’ .... I bring my solidarity and that of the church.” The Pafawag railway car factory, the city’s biggest industrial plant and a hotbed of union radicalism, was the scene of numerous strikes before Poland’s communist leaders imposed martial law in December 1981 in a bid to crush Solidarity. Many of the now-clandestine movement’s activists come from the factory. The crowi^repeatedly broke into his speech with applause. John Paul said he wished to “liberate and defend" the workers’ movement “from all who would distort and weaken it” and from “unjust objections and accusations, from wherever they come.” Reagan may veto compromise budget WASHINGTON (AP) — President Reagan told and bickering in both chambers will sink the plan, members of Congress today he strongly opposes the compromise $859 billion budget approved by House and Senate negotiators, and made clear he will veto spending bills he considers excessive. Reagan met with congressional Republicans this morning after approval of the compromise blueprint, which includes multibillion-dollar increases in taxes and spending. House Republican leader Robert Michel, asked later if Reagan liked the budget proposal, said, “Of course not. Neither do I.” Rep Barber Conable, R-N Y , said, “He thinks it’s a little too much. I think he’ll take the various elements of it that are excessive and deal with them one at a time by using his veto power. He's determined to get government costs under control.” Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M , chairman of the Budget Committee that helped produce the plan, said Reagan "has his views and we have our views." The spending blueprint now goes back to the House and Senate amid concerns that Reagan's opposition making it impossible for Congress to adopt a budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. I. Under the compromise adopted by voice vote Monday night, taxes would be increased by $73 billion over three years: $12 billion in 1984, $15 billion in 1985 and $46 billion in 1986 Reagan already has ruled out any tax increases until 1986 The plan also offers an estimated $15 billion more for domestic programs than Reagan wants. That figure does not include up to another $7.5 billion set aside for a so-called “contingency fund" for recession relief legislation such as a new jobs bill and mortgage foreclosure relief — measures which have not yet been authorized by Congress Tile compromise budget carries a maximum deficit of $179 billion. Meanwhile, the compromise calls for $268 6 billion in new military spending authority — about a 5 percent increase after inflation. Reagan had asked for a IO percent boost Special session hearingWednesday AUSTIN (AP) - Texas taxpayers have a chance Wednesday to say what they think about the two subjects assigned the special legislative session called by Gov Mark White. Committees in both the House and Senate have already set public hearings Wednesday afternoon on bills concerning brucellosis control and continuation of the Texas {Employment Commission. The session, which House Speaker Gib l«ewis has estimated will last a week to IO days “al tile most,” opens at IO am Wednesday. Proposed legislative measures were filed Monday in the Senate and House to cover both the subjects Senators will meet at 9:30 a rn Wednesday in their usual pre-session caucus, behind closed doors, to pick a president pro tempore, or assistant presiding officer.

Senate and House committees have scheduled public hearings at 2 p.m. on bills covered by White’s session call. Sen John Sharp, D-Victona. has prefiled a bill on continuation of the Texas {Employment Commission in the Senate, and Reps. IJoyd Crtss, iMialveston, and Bob Leonard, R-Fort Worth, in the House Sen. Bob Glasgow, D-Stephenville, has a bill in the Senate (Mi revised brucellosis controls A similar bill was introduced in the House by Rep Bruce Gibson, I MEI e bu me “This issue needs to be resolved to reassure TKC employees, Texas businesses and the unemployed.” Crtss said Monday. “We don’t know how the U.S. Department of Utbor will react if TKC is allowed to die, They have very clear statutory authority to declare our state out (rf compliance with federal law lf that happens, federal employ er taxes will increase 437 percent, from about $56 per employee to $245 per employee ” Quick committee action on either or both of the bills could bring on House or Senate debate before the end of tile week. Bodies of 3 children found FREEPORT, Texas (Al*» Searchers have found tin* bodies of three children who drowned while swimming in dangerous waters near the mouth of a southeast Texas river, sheriff’s officials say Officers with the Brazoria County sheriff's office and a Coast Guard team were to resume their search of the San Bernard River today in hopes of finding the body of 13-year-old Darrin Duliart, said a sheriff’s spokeswoman who asked her name not be used Workers found one body, that of 9-year-old Patrick Oliver, about half a mile downstream from where the children were having a picnic Sunday, sheriff’s spokesman Gene Smith said The discovery was made at 3:15 pill Monday, about two hours before searchers found tile bodies of 9-year-old Carrie S. Henry and Anthony Duliart, 12. where the river spills into the Intracoastal Waterway , the unidentified spokeswoman said AU four children come from Simonton in Fort Bend County, southwest of Houston A fifth child, 14-year-oid Charlotte Henry, of Houston, almost drowned trying to save a sister but was rescued KIU RN'?, D DI by family members She was at Ben Taub Hospital in good condition "She was swimming and saw her sister drowning and tried to go out ami save her and that was Ilk* last she remembers.” Coast Guard spokesman John Dec said The appparent drownings occurred during a Father s Day picnic. While swimming, the children apparently were carried away by the turbulent water at the mouth of the San Bernard River “That’s a very dangerous place,” said Sgt David Miles of the Brazoria County Sheriffs Department “You got the Gulf current and the river current, and it’s very deep People don t have no business swimming there." Rare illness provides data for shuttle CHATHAM, Va. (AP) — Marcia Cates, a 42-year-old woman whose body temperature can fluctuate from chills to fever without her being aware of it, has become a living laboratory for NASA researchers. Her rare problem, which developed after surgery in 1980 on a brain aneurysm, is providing the National Aeronautics and Space Administration with data on body temperature extremes that may be applied to space shuttle astronauts Sensors attached to Mrs. Cates’ body monitor her temperature and body activity around the clock The information is collected in a Vitalog, a NASA device carried in a blue pouch on her belt. Mrs. Cates has been wearing the device since May 16, and every day the data is fed into a donated home computer for later transfer to NASA researchers. Dr Bill Williams, who works for the Ther-mophysiology laboratory at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California, said Mrs. Cates’ T3se may be useful in studies of the coordination of heart rate, blood pressure and temperature of astronauts aboard future shuttle flights. • What Marcia experiences is an extreme case of desynchronosis,” Williams said In a telephone interview from Corvallis, Ore., where he is temporarily working for the Kn-vironmental Protection Agency. “There’s no coordination between her blood pressure and heart rate, for example. All of her control systems seem to be running free, things that are very tightly correlated in others. "Astronauts may have some level of desynchronosis.” he said. The difference is that astronauts may suffer the problem because of space travel, while the cause of Mrs. Cates* problem isn’t clearly understood, Williams said "She does not know when she is cold, she does not know wile ii she is hot She can absorb heat like a rock and get hotter and hotter," Williams said “Basically, the wires are not there Her thermostat the hypothalmus is hanging on the wall but there are no wires on it ... no signals to tin* body." Normal human tarty temperature is 98 6 degrees Fahrenheit, but can fluctuate half a degree routinely. Cates said he noticed Hie temperature problem one day after his wife underwent surgery to repair a ruptured blood vessel in her brain. He tried to take her temperature, but it wouldn't register on an ordinary thermometer. Records indicate Mrs. Cates’ temperature dropped as low as 88 2 degrees Fahrenheit during a short walk Jan 6, 1962 BRAUNTEX I VV >an Antonio (> J‘> IHI BRAUNTEX 2 MARK HAMIL I • HARRISON FORD • CARR# FISHER BALY DEE WILLIAMS • ANTHONY DANIELS. .

The residents were hoping to stay ahead of the Colorado River, which rose nearly 2 feet on the first of three days of planned water releases from dams between Arizona, Nevada and California.
