Texas Vol. 94-No. 214 Friday November 1, 1985 25 Cents 34 Pages 3 Sections San Marcos woman puzzled by bomb in jet DALLAS (AP) — A San Marcos woman has told the FBI she is puzzled how a battery-operated explosive device got in her luggage aboard an American Airlines jetliner she boarded at Austin for a flight to Des Moines, Iowa. The homemade bomb exploded about 8 a.m. Wednesday in the luggage compartment of a Boeing 727, shortly after American Flight 203 arrived at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. No one was injured, and the 147 passengers and seven crew members were hurriedly taken off the plane. Mary Thielman of San Marcos said FBI agents greeted her and her three children after they arrived at Des Moines later Wednesday and informed her the device had been hidden in her cosmetic case. “I didn’t put it in there. I have absolutely no idea who did,” she told The Dallas Morning News in a telephone interview Thursday from her parents’ home in Des Moines. Her husband. Albert Thielman, told the Austin American Statesman that FBI agents searched his home, office and automobiles late Wednesday. Thielman was not arrested or charged, and said he consented to the searches. ‘‘They wanted to go to my house, and that was fine,” Thielman *aid. ‘ They went through my cars and everything in my office and my house They said it (the device) was in her stuff.” Thielman said he dropped his family off at the airport and cheeked their baggage with a skycap at the curb in front of the terminal. Byron Sage, agent-in-charge of the FBI's Austin office, said the possibility someone else might have tampered with the luggage “has not been ruled out at all.” Sage said his agents are widening the investigation to identify everyone who came in contact with the baggage containing the device.

The state unemployment rate increased one percent from September’s rate of 7.1 and jumped 2.4 percentage points from the October 1984 rat*, said Bryan Richey, regional commissioner for the Bureau of I .a bor Statistics in I >ailas Richey said the depressed energy industry, the devaluation of the Mexican Peso and downturns in manufacturing, especially in electronics and related industries!!!, have contributed to unemployment problems in Texas. The total number of Texans out of work iii October totaled 645,000, compared to 568,000 iii September A total of 7.35 million workers were employed in Texas in October, Richey said. In October 1985 . 451,000 Texans were jobless. The record of unemployed in Texas was set in September 1983, when 647,000 residents were unemployed and the jobless rate was 8.3 percent, Richey said "I think that the weakness in unemployment is very real and seems to be spreading more and more to industry and becoming more significant, and that s just in recent months,” he said Richey said October generally sees an increase in the labor force and employment    ploy iner    t "Normally in October, the news is    usuallv    *. not this bad,’ he said But bec aas    jsi-i we didn t get the seasonal impart.    >wd< w the effect of seasonal adjustment    But    w < may have exagerrated lx>th the in    I think ti crease in unemployment arid decide    tar t in employment.”    Sept en Seasonal adjustments are made    that ti every month in tabluating uiiem    lei chm ti uies, he said October j reuses in trade and rvi» es, accompanied by a in nit induction didn't get tile increase and lat’s why we had such a imp in unemployment from el, Im >aui.

By SARAH DUKE Staff writer With five days left before the Village of Canyon I .ake incorporation election, a group of residents from the area have proposed a separate incorporation map, one that would include the entire lake. Nancy and I .airy Heflin have been working with Ute Canyon I .ake Coiiununity Coordinating Council for tile past few montlis to complete a census of the lake area. They have found more than 5,300 people in the area, enough to incorporate a city of nine square miles. “We were trying to lay out the city boundaries so that we can develope a cohesive community," Nancy Heflin said. The Heflins are continuing with the census and expect to find up to 9,000 perinenant residents in the area Incorporation boundaries to be voted on Tuesday include only the coiiununity of Sadler and areas along River Road which runs from Sattler to just outside of New Braunfels. Opponents of tile original incorporation move liave said since the first map was drawn that it fragments the lake community. “We're not really opposed to incorporation,” said Ralph Richey, president of the Canyon I .ake Chamber of Commerce. We’re opposed to the fragmentation that this move would do to the lake area “We would like to see this first issue (the move to incorporate) voted down to give the enure lake area a chance to be a part of it,' he added. Rn hey said that he thinks the lake area needs to incorporate because the area could someday be subject to annexation by either New Braunfels or San Antonio. “If we are going to incorporate, we want the area to be ♦ogether,” he said. The boundaries of the incorporation area to be voted on Tuesday include valuable real estate along River Road and FM 306 between the lake and New Braunfels Opponents to the mcorporaUon move to be voted on Tuesday have said that the boundaries were not drawn fairly because riverfront property will be included in the boundaries and subject to taxation. In some cases, homes along the river were not included which would mean that homeowners would pay taxes on riverfront property yet not be See MAP, Page UA 2 persons treated in wrecks A New Braunfels woman received injuries Thursday afternoon when her car collided with another vehicle at Unicorn Avenue and US 81 West.
