This puppy gives a fairly impressive yawn as a feline buddy watches. Both would be anything but bored if they were to be given a permanent home. Their current residence
is the Humane Society animal shelter on Kuehler Avenue south of IH 35. The shelter will accept strays and unwanted pets.
BY STELLA WILDER WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 2
Bom today, you are forceful, and are naturally attractive to other people, but you lack the self control needed for real success early in life. It will take you a number of years of concentrated effort and training to gain the kind of self-possession and self-direction necessary if your talents — which are many! — are to be harnessed to determination and foresight wisely and well. You may spend much time as a jack-of-all-trades until, ultimately, you do, indeed, become master of one!
As a youngster, you may see yourself quite differently than others do, or than you really are.

On the agenda for tonight’s meeting are reports by city officials, and some changes in city codes in order to conform with new state laws.

iiDistrict gets steady flow of new students
New Braunfels ISD is showing “considerable growth,” Superintendent Charles Bradberry told district trustees during Tuesday’s study session.
“We’re adding about 8% students per week,” Bradberry said.
He said there is “no consistent pattern” of where these students are moving into the district from.
Every grade from the pre-kindergarten through 8th grade shows an increase in students from Aug. 29 to Oct. 28. Tenth and 12th grades also show an increase.
The only two grades which show a decline are 9th and lith grades. Bradberry said the enrollments for these grades are still increasing, but are being offset by dropouts. <
The trustees also heard a report that the district has not received a majority of the state per capita funds, which is the basis of the school district’s budget.
So far the district has received 3127,412,
but should have received $303,272.
The district is expecting a total of $1,819,637 for the year, a figure arrived at by multiplying the average daily attendance by $450. The amount is normally paid in 12 equal payments.
The per capita funds “have been erratic this year,” Assistant Superintendent Lonnie Curtis said.
School officials see no immediate threat in the late payments.
“The fact that we collect taxes in the summer is a Mg plus,” Curtis said.
Bradberry said that although the money is not guaranteed, he sees no reason why the district won’t eventually receive the funds.
In another report, Anita Stipnieks, a NBISD administrative assistant, said the Bilingual Education program has 27 students less than the projected enrollment.
“Our losses came at the secondary and high school level,” she said.
In (Aher items, the trustees heard an update on the athletic revenue. So far in the season, the total home gate receipts, originally budgeted for $40,000, have totalled $30,668.
In out-of-town games the NBISD has gained $19,145 so far, rfn increase over the originally budgeted $15,000. With two games still remaining, the school district lacks $5,186 of meeting its budget.
Bradberry also summarized the University Interscholastic League's proposed changes to the Select Committee on Public Education.
Noting the district is not affected by most of the rule changes, Bradberry predicted, “I think you’ll see many of them pass” in the February election by superintendents.
The trustees also saw a presentation on the NBISD’s licensed vocational nursing program by Leland Cox, vocational administrator.
