He pointed out that the main plaza work would not solve the drainage problem there, because that could only be solved by opening the existing storm water runoff devices and putting in bigger inlets.
The proposed total for drainage improvements now stands at $2.4 million, with contingency and engineering costs pro rated into the estimate for each project. Rutherford suggested that on the ballot, the four projects be listed with only a total cost figure, so any money adjustments could be done later.
Streets: The only changes in the street category were the addition of cost figures for the extension of Walnut Avenue from Gardenia to County line Road and for the widening of the Lands Street un
The city would spend about $350,000 buying the middle third of the Walnut right of way, with the two sides of the street being paid for by developers along the street.
Another $50,000 was added to the $50,000 proposed to widen the South Seguin Street underpass to include the Landa Street underpass,at the same time.
The $100,000 proposed for the underpass reconstruction, explained City Manager Joe Michie, is the city’s portion of a million dollar highway department project to widen the structures to four lanes.
Other street projects are improvements to County Line Road ($1.27 million), improvements -to Pahmeyer Lane ($370,000), and street overlay projects throughout
town ($600,000). Engineering and right of way costs probably would be pro rated into the County Line and Pahmeyer projects.
Public buildings: Construction of a performing arts center is still one of the major discussions in the public buildings category; while refurbishing the old or building a new city hall is also a big topic.
Architects recently looked at some sites for an auditorium and say the Civic Center parking lot seems to be the most practical spot for such building. Sharon LeMoine, heading the committee, said a planning meeting must now be held with representatives of different kinds of groups that might use the facility. A price tag would then be devloped for the “wish list” and the group would pare Hhe facility down to an af
Thcre are about $250,000 worth of improvements proposed for the Civic Center and the group Monday discussed whether to leave the auditorium and Civic Center improvements tied together in the election.
Architects also have looked at the current city hall and Michie said he expects detailed reports in about two weeks on the possibility of building another story on the curr ent building, moving to the Schmitz Hotel, or building a city hall on top of a fire station.
Proposals to renovate the central fire station and build a new substation will be referred to the Public Health and Safety advisory board.
Parks: All the proposals for parks improvements will be sent to the Parks and Recreation advisory board, which plans a special meeting with the golf course advisory board later this month.
Along with a $590,000 price tag for redevelopment of Cypress Bend Park for a sports complex, and buying $600,000 worth of land for a future sports complex, the parks proposal includes revitalization of several existing parks in town.
Monday, the workshop group asked the parks and golf boards to talk about the possibility of adding a proposal to cover the Olympic pool to provide year-round swimming services, and adding four proposals suggested by the golf board. The golf
board’s ideas include a retaining wail on part of the course, installing a cart path system at the course, and installing bumpers on 12 of the holes.
“Since we’re going out on a shopping list, let’s give it to the people,” said Tieken, after Bud Dallman asked for the pool cover. “If they like it, they’ll vote for it. ”
The city is aiming at a May 25 bond election date and is considering presenting the proposals in “shopping list” form so voters can approve each project separately. To date, the group has not decided whether each of the four categories will be presented individually or if each project will be separate.
The next workshop will be March 27.★ Parks.Continued from Page 1A
people strongly felt that the government was theirs.
Whatley said he would check with Michie and see if the three requests that the board approved could be left off of the city council agenda, since they were the type of decisions that were purely administrative.
Those requests were for the lOamo Area Council of Boy Scouts to have exclusive use of Cypress Bend Park April 13 from 8 a.rn.-5 p.m. for a Bike-A-Rama and to waive all rental fees, to allow the Cub Scouts to waive fees for the spring-fed pool during day camp June 10-13; and for the Gypsy Motorcycle Club to have exclusive use of Cypress Bend Park on July 19-21 and to waive the clean-up deposit.
Hamel disagreed with allowing the Boy Scouts to waive fees because the scouts received a funding from ComFund, a county-wide version of the United Way. Waiving fees would be giving them a larger portion of money, he said.
But other board members did not feel that the request was unusual, and Wofford pointed out that the ComFund was not city tax money.
John Wommack, patrol lieutenant with the New Braunfels Police Department, reported that if the summer tourist traffic picked up over last year that the manpower needs for park patrols would need to be increased.

“All of this is influenced by a lot of different factors, but if we use 1983 as a guide, we need more patrols. The heavy holiday weekends like July 4 and Labor Day I think we could use an extra two men on patrol and for the rest of the summer weekends, an extra one patrolman,” Wommack said.
Currently the parks are patroled by five officers on regular summer weekends and seven on the holiday weekends, besides the five park rangers who do not have citation power. Usually the city reserve police officers do most of the patrolling, Wommack explained.
“After our regular officers put in their 40 hours all week, most of them do not want to sign up for extra duty, but the reserves get a chance to earn some money and law enforcement experience,” Wommack explained.
A new law requires all reserve officers to have an extra 120 hours of training by Sept. I. No school is scheduled near here by that date. This deadline will mean that Labor Day weekend would have a manpower shortage if the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education does not give them an extension.
In other business, the parks board also approved entering into a formal agreement with New Braunfels Aquatic Club for the competitive swim program that is identical to the past arrangements between the city and the swim club
Mauro praises Mattox, criticizes Mobil lawyer in testimony
AUSTIN (AP) — Attorney General Jim Mattox did a praiseworthy job representing the state against Mobil Oil Corp. in an oil lease dispute, but the Houston lawyer hired by Mobil did a horrible job, state Land Commissioner Garry Mauro testified today.
Mauro was land commissioner when the lawsuit against Mobil was settled. Testifying in Mattox’ commercial bribery trial, he described the settlement as a multi-million dollar victory for the state.
Mauro was called by defense attorneys, who contend that Fullbright & Jaworski lawyer Thomas McDade — who represented Mobil — chose to wage a political vendetta against Mattox.
Mauro's testimony backed up that contention.
“He (McDade) had one motive — not to try the case in the courthouse but to try Jim Mattox or Garry Mauro. I’m convinced he set out to get one or both of us indicted,” Mauro said.
Mauro noted that McDade launched a wide-ranging effort to remove the judge assigned to the oil lease case, and in so doing tried to tie Mattox to South Texas rancher Clinton Manges, the state’s partner in the Mobil lawsuit.

New Japanese ‘Super Pill’ Insures Rapid Weight-Loss
No Dieting — Eat All You Want,
Pill Does All The Work
BEVERLY HILLS. CA An etal-mg new “all natural’’ weight-loss "Super" Pill developed by the JMA (Japanese Medical Association) has just been approved for distribution in the United States Reportedly, it can guarantee that you will lose more than a pound a day without dieting, from the very first day until you reach your ideal weight and figure News of this "Super Pill" is literally sweeping the country.

"Flushest Calories Right Out Of Your Body "
What makes Amilol so thrilling and unique is Us reported ability to flush calories right out of your body Amitol is completely sale. it contains no drugs whatsoever Its ingredients are derived solely from the Konjat root which grows primarily in Northern Japan
Why the Konjat root?

They say it does this by surrounding much of the fats, proteins and carbohydrates you have eaten with a protective viscous coating which is then gently flushed out of your system And according to Japanese research this prix!aces absolutely amazing results
And who can disagree! Amitol (although brand new to this country) is
During negotiations, McDade would talk about Manges, the rancher’s United States Football League team and other unrelated topics, Mauro said.
“He talked about just about anything except that (oil) lease,” Mauro said.
Hiring McDade, Mauro said, was “a horrible error. He wouldn’t try the case on the merits. He wanted to try the case in the newspapers.
“After reading Tom McDade’s quoptes in the newspaper, I decided I must be naive. I’d never seen a lawyer talk so much to the press, tell the press so much that had no basis in fact,” Mauro said.
Mattox’ chief attorney, Roy Q. Minton, opened the defense case Monday by telling jurors that Mattox’ 1983 efforts to bring the state more oil-lease money through the lawsuit made him the target of a political vendetta by McDade.
At stake was more money for the state's public school fund, Minton said.
"The evidence is going to show you that the attorney general, our attorney general, was carrying out a duty the best way he knew how,” Minton said.
Mattox’s motive was “so the people of Texas, the school children of Texas, would get every cent of the money they deserved,” he added.
Mattox is accused of threatening not to approve public bonds prepared by Fulbright A Jaworski unless McDade stopped trying to question
his sister in the oil lease case. Commercial bribery is a felony, punishable by up to IO years in prison and £ $5,000 fine.
In his opening statement, Minton reviewed the oil dispute in which Manges sued Mobil for failing to live up to terms of its leases on some 65,000 acres of Manges’ land.
The state owned mineral rights to 14,720 of those acres and joined the lawsuit on the rancher’s side. The suit was assigned to District Judge Ruben Garcia of Laredo, but McDade wanted Garcia removed from the case.
Minton noted that McDade twice sought to take depositions from Mattox and his sister, Dallas lawyer Janice Mattox, in his bid to remove Garcia.
Questioning the attorney general in such a circumstance, Minton said, is •‘something virtually unheard of.” Describing McDade’s actions as unnecessary, Minton said McDade even sought “every scrap of paper from every race (Mattox) ever ran since he was a 28-year-old youngster in Dallas running for the state Legislature.”
Mattox concluded McDade was “a person they could not trust” and someone who “was going to make this into a personal, political fight,” Minton said.
But McDade picked on the wrong man, Minton said, adding that Mattox “didn’t grow up with people rolling over him.”
Calling McDade’s actions as

harassment, Minton said. “I think the evidence is going to be conclusive that that is exactly what was involved.”
Because of scheduling problems with witnesses, the defense began its case Monday before prosecutors finished theirs. Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle said he expected to resume and wrap up prosecution today.★ DeathsContinued from Page 2A
