The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials edged up .ll to 1,260.05 in the first hour. Losers held a slight edge on gainers in the broad tally of New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. Profit worries began to spread on Wall Street after International Business Machines said late last week that its first-quarter earnings would come in below comparable year-ago levels. 48 474 474 184 184 184 384 384 384 384 384 384 294 294 294 564 564 564 244 244 244 414 404 41 304 304 304 164 164 164 324 324 324 274 264 27 344 344 344 594 594 594 354 35 354 194 194 194 314 314 314 744 73*4 734 504 504 50*4 624 614 614 484 474 474 494 49 49 154 154 154 324 314 314 434 424 434 35 344 344 344 334 334 35*« 354 354 314 314 314 1104 1094 1094 174 17V* 17*4 27 264 27 294 294 294 374 374 37*4 474 474 474 274 27*s 274 744 744 744 214 214 214 464 464 464 444 44 44 294 29*4 294 424 424 424 21 204 21 3 hurt in crash at dangerous intersection A three-car accident at the intersection of Hunter Road and FM 306 Sunday afternoon slightly injured the drivers, including an 18-year-old New Braunfels resident. The same intersection claimed the lives of two people last December. Bobbie Hasert, engineer with the Department of Highways and Public Transportation, said his department is looking at that intersection and the intersection at lx>op 337 and River Road for possible installation of traffic lights. •’We’re being involved, but we’re not very far along,” Hasert said. ‘•We’re at the stage of trying to work out agreements to do a traffic study." Hasert explained that installation of traffic lights is a city function, but must “have the blessing of the state” when the site is on a state route. According to police reports, Marguerite Herrera of Seguin was southbound on Hunter Road in a Buick Regal when he failed to yield to Thomas McKown of San Antonio who was headed toward IH 35 on FM 306. McKown’s car struck Herrera’s car on the driver’s side, causing it to spin around and hit the front of a Dodge Colt driven by Nancy Tieken of 1242 Common, which had stopped in the northbound lane of Hunter. Injuries were treated at the scene. Hasert said 90 percent of the accidents that occur at that intersection happen on summer weekends. I .ast December, two persons were killed and two others injured when their car was struck broadside at the intersection after running the stop sign. One businessman wanted more trash containers along the Comal River and in two city parks, while another wanted a new mayor elected ‘‘immediately." Those two suggestions were among those aired at Qty Council’s meeting Monday. Tom Corbin, owner of the Bier Haus, said litterbugs are lazy arid will not work to find a trash receptacle. ‘‘There is no such thing as a bad tourist,” Corbin said. “Only a badly managed tourist. “If containers are there, people will use them." Corbin pointed out that there is only one trash can in Cypress Bend Park. He also wanted more trash cans in Hinman Island Park. He also offered to eliminate glass containers from his business to further comply with the city’s new ordinance banning glass in city parks. Mayor Barbara Tieken asked Corbin if he would talk to other retail business owners to see if they would follow his lead. Corbin also suggested hiring interns from the law enforcement academy in San Marcos to patrol the rivers and enforce city codes. “I’d like to see us look into some of the items, especially the trash cans along the river,” Tieken said. Jeff Henry, co-owner of luanda Resort and Schlitterbahn, Monday night called for a change in city government. “The form of government we have is a good form of government," Henry said, explaining that he took an informal survey of business owners, who believe that the mayor’s duty should be confined to acting as "ceremonial head,” while the city manager should run all the city activities. But, Henry said, there’s been a change and New Braunfels activities are not being administered that way. “I don’t like the change," he said. “We ought to elect immediately a new mayor to the city of New Tom Corbin Braunfels." Henry’s recommendations also included the appointment of a new-city river’s committee, because the current committee “is tired” of meeting. Henry also said he “went around town” and found out that the tourist industry believes it has been singled out by Council; the Chamber of Commerce "feels their integrity has been questioned;" and New Braunfels Utilities “feels they’ve been attacked and their integrity also has been questioned." City leaders are reluctant to respond to Henry’s comments. “Certainly the fact that we are in litigation with the Henrys precludes any comments about the allegations about the city,” said City Manager Joe Michie. The R.R. Henry family has a lawsuit pending against the city for conspiring to “exterminate” the Henry’s businesses — the Schlit-terbahn and luanda Resort. Council chooses a mayor annually after city elections. Local government? We've got you covered Herald-Zeitung Weather Kuempel's school bill gets House approval Rep. Edmund Kuempel’s move to give school districts a break on building projects has passed the House. Kuempel (K-Seguin) authored House Bill 469, which would exempt school districts from having to determine the prevailing wage rate on public construction, which is required currently. The bill passed third and final reading in the House last week, and now moves to the Senate, where its sponsor will be J.E. (Buster) Brown, R-Lake Jackson. “After the mandates of HB 72 (the education reform act passed last summer, the legislature has to be very careful about local concerns," said Kuempel, whose district includes Guadalupe, Comal and Kendall counties. “That is the purpose of HB 469 to give schools local control a"2 to save local tax dollars."
