The search for two I^tin males, who are suspected of killing one Mexican national and wounding four others in a gangland-style shooting off FM 1863 Thursday, may soon end in San Antonio.
“We’ve been able to talk to some of the survivors. We’re getting bits and pieces from each one, fitting them together, getting closer," Comal County Sheriff’s U. Rudy Rubio said Saturday. “We’re definitely looking for two l.atin men in San Antonio, and I’m confident they will be arrested shortly."
“We’re about ready to knock on someone’s door. That’s how close we are," Sheriff’s Investigator Kermit Kroesche added.
The dead man has been identified as Victor Manuel Serrano Cervan, 20. of San Luis Potosi. Mexico. He died at 12 55 p m. Thursday at Northeast Baptist Hospital, where Adolpho Mata Arviso, 16, was listed in stable condition Saturday night.

Education board limits extracurricular activity hours, avoids suspension ruling
AUSTIN (AP) — The number of practice hours students can participate in extracurricular activities was limited by the State Board of Education on Saturday, but the board took no action on a controversial six-week suspension rule for failing students.
Students participating in extra school activities will only be allowed to practice up to eight hours per school week for each activity, the board decided. The previous rule allocated students 20 hours per week for all activities,
The board also voted to curtail the number of contests and performances a school can schedule for each extracurricular activity to one per week. This new activity schedule goes into effect Sept. 1,1985.
The only exceptions include tournaments, post-season competition, and activities re-scheduled because of inclement weather, said Jack Strong, of Longview, chairman of the Students Committee.
The board refused to alter a provision in which students failing a course are prohibited from participating in any extracurricular activities tor six weeks.
Sen. Carl Parker, D-Port Arthur, head of the Senate Education Committee, introduced a resolution Thursday requesting the education board consider changing the "no-
Houston police certain about suspecting Port
A Houston police sergeant testified Saturday lie never considered David Port’s father or brother as a suspect in the June 7 murder of mail carrier Debora Sue Schatz.
Sgt. David Collier said he was fairly satisfied’ with the whereabouts of Bernard Port and his 23-year-old son, Roger Dean, on the day Schatz was allegedly shot to death in the family’s home.
Questioned by defense attorney Jack Zim-mermann. Collier admitted a resemblance bet
ween David and Roger Dean Port. But when prosecutor Mary Milloy asked, “Do you have any suspicion that Roger I lean Port committed this offense'’," Collier replied, “No, ma’am None whatsoever."
David Port. 18, is charged with Schatz’ murder. Her body was found two days later near Cypress Creek rn northwest Harris County.
The murder trial, moved here on a change of venue by State District Judge I D. McMaster,
began at I p.m. Friday. Jury selection started back on Feb. 25 and took eight days, followed by a two-day. pre-trial hearing on the admissibility of statements made by Port to police after his arrest on June 8.
McMaster ruled Friday morning only those statements made to officer Irma I^res-Sauseda in her patrol car on the way to and immediately after

pass, no-play" suspension provision from six weeks to a weekly basis.
The Senate had approved the resolution 25-4.
“This is just an expression from the Senate as a result of the input we have had from our constitutents," Parker said Thursday. “It is unfair to blindside folks with a rule wnere there is no way out. We should offer more encouragement for our students to get on the ball."
Currently, students not earning a passing grade of 70 must sit out of all extracurricular activities until the next grading period show the students are passing all courses. The grading period is based on six-week terms.
Strong responded to the Senate resolution through a letter to Parker in which he said the Students Committee would take no action on the Senate resolution until it hears from the House of Representatives.
Strong said he had visited with House Speaker Gib Lewis and members of the Legislative Education Board after the Senate resolution had passed.
Lewis and Rep. Bill Haley, D-Center, chairman of the House Public Education Committee, said members of the House Legislative Education Board were divided on the issue, according to Strong’s letter.

Youth Show tradition goes on and on
By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer
Uke father, like son, so the saying goes, and in Comal County it doesn’t stop there.
At least four sets of grandparents here, active in the Comal County Junior Uvestock Show and Sale, had children who exhibited animals. Now that they have families of their own, their children are following in their footsteps
Coincidentally, all four grandparents still have some farming or ranching interest.
This year’s Youth Show will run from Thursday through Saturday at the Comal County Fair Grounds More than 300 young people will have approximately 800 exhibits in the Uvestock division for the public to see. Projects will be Judged Thursday and Friday, and auctioned on Saturday.
Helen Steubing, treasurer of the Uvestock show, has been a treasurer since the first one in 1968 Three grandchildren are showing animals this year.
James is showing a steer and sheep. Christy, who has been in it three years, is showing sheep. And Walker, in his second year, is showing sheep also.
All of them are following in the footsteps of Helen’s son, Ronnie Steubing, who raised steers.
“Since then though the number of students involved has proably quadupled,” Helen said.
Helen married into a farm family, but had already been active with the 4-H in Bexar County before moving here. Her husband Wilton still has a polled hereford business that their son Ronnie works on too.
Herbert Laubach, active in the Uvestock show, had two sons, David and Kenneth, who raised lambs and steer for the show. And now David, an ex-agriculture teacher, has two children showing animals this year: Adam, 15, who raises steers and Cara, who will show lambs in her first show this year.
The Uubachs still have a beef cattle operation.
Mildred (Omie) WunderUch lives out on the family ranch between Spring Branch and Smithson Valley where she and her husband, the late Waldie WunderUch, had raiaed their children. And the still helps the young people get their animals ready for the show.
The boys, Kenneth and Ronnie, now grown with famiUes of their own, had been active in the Uvestock show as they grew up.
"Both were interested in goats and cattle. They used to follow their daddy around the ranch
