A few examples of the New Braunfels wins are Egon Tausch who won first in
the mile run. The relay race which counted 20 points was won by the New Braunfels team of Roland Heinen, Alfred Galle, Egon Tausch and Berthold Reinarz. In the literary contest Miss Thelma Suttle won first in Senior declamation and Miss Julia Herring third in Junior declamation.
COMMERCIAL CLUB LUNCHEON. The New Braunfels Commercial Club held a luncheon at the Bingo Cafe Monday noon which was attended by about fifty of the members and a few guests....

We are very disheartened that our trust was dashed into the ground by those who get their kicks from stealing property. How disillusioned we become when we find that there are people like this in our precious and wonderful town. Sorry, but we must pull out of this beautification project.. We're running out of money and pots.
