New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 10, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Mourners pray for agent kidnapped, slain in Mexico New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung    Sunday, March 10,1985 JSA CALEXICO, Calif. (AP) — About 2,000 law enforcement officers and mourners gathered Saturday at a funeral Mass for U.S. drug agent Enrique Camarena Salazar, a victim of Mexico’s escalating drug wars. “Ask the law enforcement officers here present ... they will tell you Enrique was a kind, compassionate man always thinking of others,” said Monsigno Rudolph Galindo, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic Church where Camarena and his wife, Geneva, were married 15 years ago. Galindo recalled that Camarena, a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, was excited about his impending return to duty in the United States after five years in Mexico. Camarena was supposed to begin work in San Diego on Monday; his body was returned to the United States from Mexico on Friday. His remains were discovered Tuesday beside a road in the Mexican state of Michoacan. He had been missing since Feb. 7, when he was last seen on a Guadalajara street being thrown into a car by four men carrying guns. Mrs. Camarena and the agent’s eldest son, Enrique Jr., ll, attended Saturday’s service, but the couple’s two other children, ages 6 and 4, were not seen. Police Sgt. Bill Matus estimated the total crowd at about 2,000. An overflow crowd of more than 900 — including U.S. Ambassador to Mexico John Gavin, acting DEA administrator John Lawn, U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson, R-Calif., and more than 360 federal officers — jammed the church. Outside, more than 1,000 people gathered around speakers, listening and participating in the Mass, which was conducted in Spanish and English. Many of those outside had walked across the Mexican border from neighboring Mexicali to pay their respects to the slain agent. Camarena joined the DEA in 1974 after serving in the Marine Corps. Misprint Man sues Fort Worth police for false arrest in investigation FORT WORTH (AP) - A man whose arrest in a murder investigation was based on a fingerprint that wasn’t his has filed a $2.5 million suit in federal court against Tarrant County and five public officials. Timothy Paul Volkmar. who was released four days after his arrest in connection with the shooting death of Lisa Griffin, contends his civil rights were violated when he was arrested without proper cause and charged with murder, according to the court petition filed Friday. Ms. Griffin, 20, is one of five missing or slain women whose cases are being investigated by a special police task force. Her body was found Jan. 9 along railroad tracks near Benbrook. She had been shot once in the head, police said. Named as defendants in the suit are Tarrant County, Sheriff Don Carpenter, sheriff’s deputies Harvey Cantrip and Guadalupe Coronado and probation officers Lallay Tet-tleton and Bill Venner. The suit contends that the probation officers gave false information to investigators who used that information as justification to arrest Volkmar, 25. The action also alleges that the deputies did not pursue leads that could have cleared Volkmar and that they led prosecutors to believe they had more evidence than they did against Volkmar. “There was no probable cause to arrest this man, and that is what makes our case,’ said Volkmar’s attorney, William Wuester. Carpenter refused comment through a sheriff’s department spokesman. The other defendants could not be reached for comment Saturday by the Associated Press. Volkmar was arrested Jan. 12 after a fingerprint found on the back of Ms. Griffin’s car was at first identified as his. But investigators later found Volkmar’s fingerprint did not match the one found on the car and prosecutors dropped the charge on Jan. 16. The suit also alleges that Ms. Tettleton told police that Volkmar had told her that Ms. Griffin was his new girlfriend. Volkmar contends he never told the probation officer that he knew the woman. Volkmar is on IO years’ probation for aggravated assault for threatening his father, Lloyd, with a knife in 1980. Volkmar said that he lost his job as an apartment maintenance man two days after his release because he had not told his employer about his probation. He said he has not been able to find another job and is now living at home with his parents. Lloyd Volkmar said he filed the assault charge against his son, who he said was using drugs at the time, because he needed help in controlling him. Volkmar said he now regrets having filed the charge. Soviets get taste of Texas style DALLAS (AP) — A high-ranking Soviet delegation got a glimpse of American capitalism at its finest Saturday with a visit to a world famous department store before stopping off for a Texas-style picnic of barbecue and beer. Politburo member Vladimir Shcherbitsky and his 30-member delegation, the highest-ranking Soviets to visit the United States since 1972, ate breakfast in a private home before touring Neiman-Marcus in downtown Dallas. The delegation is visiting Texas and California after four days of talks in Washington with U.S. officials. “This is the richest store I have ever seen,” said Vitaliy Koysh, a delegation member, as he walked through the posh Neiman-Marcus department store. “You have many beautiful and valuable things in the store,” said Aleksandr A. Zakharenko, member of the USSR’s Committee on Planning and Budget, “but I think only people who are very wealthy shop here.” Richard Marcus, Neiman-Marcus chairman and chief executive officer, led the group down six flights of escalators, stopping at every floor except the lady’s wear and lingerie section to show merchandise and answer questions. Marcus presented Shcherbitsky with a model of a crystal cowboy hat and gave members of the delegation picture books of Texas cowboys. “Our emphasis is not only on high-priced goods, but on quality,” Marcus explained as he led tie group to the section containing furs priced at $55,000 to $125,000. The delegation stopped fpr several minutes to inspect sables, some of imported from Russia. “Do you like the coat, yes?” Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin asked a Neiman-Marcus model wearing an $85,000 crown sable fur. “It becomes you.” About 30 demonstrators met the delegation outside Neiman-Marcus to protest Soviet involvement in Afghanistan. Delegation members met with Gov. Mark White in Austin Friday and said they looked forward to the start of the arms control talks in Geneva Tuesday. “Mankind is facing a dilemma now whether to prevent war and insure peace, or be carried away by the hypnosis of the arms race,” said Shcherbitsky. The Soviets left Neiman-Marcus and walked across the street to Dallas Western Wear, where many of the delegates bought belt buckles and cowboy figurines. Shcherbitsky was fitted for a $200 Stetson cowboy hat. The group then headed to the Las Colinas Equestrian Club in Irving, where they ate barbecue and drank Lone Star beer to the accompaniment of “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” by the Country Cousins, a country-western band. “I like the food and the music — as well as the women,” said Vitaliy Pereloma.American dollar spins worries across Wall Street NEW YORK I AP) —- As they watch the ups and downs of the dollar in foreign exchange trading, stock market analysts seem to have trouble deciding which direction they prefer. Much has been made of the problems posed by a strong dollar as it has climbed to lofty levels against leading foreign currencies It tends to depress U.S. export business, by raising the cost overseas of goods made in this country At the same time, it encourages U.S. consumers to buy imported rather than American-made goods, and to do their traveling abroad instead of vacationing at domestic tourist spots. Many multinational companies based in the United States — including the likes of International Business Machines Corp. — have reported on the powerful adverse impact the dollar's rise has had on their earnings. But what of the alternatives? Chairman Paul Volcker of the Federal Reserve suggested the other day that a sharp decline in the dollar could have very unsettling effects for which the nation isn’t prepared. A rapid drop in the dollar would presumably dim the enthusiasm of foreign investors for U.S. securities like Treasury bills and bonds. And without their formidable presence in the bond market, interest rates might well rise significantly. Given a choice, then, U.S. investors and money managers would presumably prefer a gradual, orderly decline in the dollar that would revive export business but not turn off international investors’ appetite for securities in this country. Robert S. Salomon Jr. at Salomon Brothers Inc. said that was the consensus when he asked a gathering of portfolio managers recently what they thought about the dollar's future. “We disagree,” he wrote in a recent commentary. In the 1970s, the last period in which the dollar declined for an extended period, he notes, “our competitive edge in the global marketplace deteriorated sharply.” As investors contemplated this complex situation, the stock market took a tumble in the past week. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, which had closed the previous Friday at a record high, fell back 29.70 to 1,269.66. The New York Stock Exchange composite index dropped 2.22 to 103.82, and the American Stock Exchange market value index was down 2.61 at 225.87. Big Board volume averaged 108.78 million shares a day, against 110.43 million the week before. “We would argue,” Salomon said, “that the strength of the dollar since 1980 has been a positive force in the economy/’ Beaches swelling with college students FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla (AP) — College students from Carolina to California, Boston to Baton Rouge are fatting Florida’s beaches and bars almost as fast as the beer is pouring out, in spite of austerity suggestions from a Reagan Cabinet member “I haven’t seen that many weird things, just masses of people partying their brains out,” said T-shirt saleswoman Lori Mclntire. “This is just the beginning." More college students are expected here from mid-February through the end of March than the 350,000 who came last year, pumping approximately $120 million into the local economy, tourism officials say. The students, snubbing the advice of the Reagan administration, are continuing a 30-year tradition of spending spring break at the beach The hordes were advised against taking part in the beach blow-out by the newly appointed U.S. secretary of education, William Bennett, a former college philosophy professor. In Bennett’s view, students should pay more attention to saving money than celebrating, particularly in light of a Reagan administration proposal to restrict government-guaranteed student loans. When he took office in February. Bennett said the proposed cuts “may require from students divestiture of certain sorts: stereo divestiture, automobile divestiture, three-weeks-at-the-beach divestiture.” But judging by the thousands of students crowding the sidewalks and beaches in Fort lauderdale and Daytona Beach, few have taken Bennett's advice seriously. “It’s just not very realistic,” said Natalie Pitcher, 21, a Penn State student. “I mean, part of going to school is learning what life is all about." Ms. Pricher, lounging at a beachfront nightspot, said Bennett “should have been here the other night when those guys from the U.S. Naval Academy were singing that chant: “We don’t pay for school.'” Down the strip, the Jolly Roger Hotel, built in 1952, is one of the spots that has attracted spring break crowds for years. "We have guys 40 to 50 years old come in here, take a look around and say, ‘I used to come here for spring break,'” said Sean Dugan, 24, the Jolly Roger's manager. {Tax Return Preparation Reasonable Rates!
