There’s one line left in the last act of the William Dale Savage story.
The last act began Friday at Fort Sam Houston, where a board of officers convened and heard a full day of testimony for and against Savage's
The three officers, Ma J. George Michels, Copt. William Thresher and Capt. Murine Coleman, are scheduled to bring a recommendation to Brig. Gen. Robert Buker, commandant of the Academy of Health Sciences, within seven days. The final decision will come from Buker.
Savage is in his second year of a three-year assignment, and currently serves as a physical activities specialist at Fort Sam's 3rd Battalion.
This play began last October, when Savage was charged with the involuntary manslaughter of Ruben Sauceda, his common-law wife and their two small children in New
Braunfels. Wurstfest cups rested in the floorboard of his yellow Volkswagen, and his blood alcohol level registered over twice the legal limit in Texas.
On April 14, Savage was placed on IO years probation for the father's death. After months of community protest, he pleaded guilty to the other
three deaths, and received three more 10-year probated sentences to run concurrently with the first trial.
Friday's board of review was Uke last April revisited. Soldiers dressed in full uniform testified about Savage’s character, each having something distinct to say about him.
The board also heard recom
mendations on retention from each of the 19 witnesses, ranging from an immediate discharge “other than honorable," to letting Savage complete his term and then being barred from reenlistment.

Continental flying despite pilots' strike
HOUSTON (AP) - Despite cancellations and delays caused by crew shortages, officials of financially ailing Continental Airlines remained confident Saturday they could break a strike by pilots and flight attendants.
“Continental is flying,’’ said Continental spokesman Bruce Hicks.
Members of the Air Line Pilots Association and Union of Flight Attendants walked off their jobs shortly after 2 a m. CDT, one week after Continental filed for reorganization under federal bankruptcy laws. The airline laid off 70 percent of its work force and slashed salaries of those left by about 50 percent.
Continental officials claimed the changes were necessary to keep the planes in the air. Three unions, however, accused the company of Crying to void the contracts and called a strike.
Hundreds of pilots and flight attendants — many wearing their uniforms and carrying placards — picketed in front af ticket counters, along concourses, rn hangar areas and airport terminals in many

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund filed a federal suit in April chaUtnging NBISD’s present election system, which provides tor seven trustees elected at large to staggered terms.
Until recently, this has been the standard system approved by the Texas Education Agency. However, a new section added to the codes on Aug- 20 makes it postals for a district of New Braunfels’ size to changa its election system by board vote or local referendum. Tuesday's hearing will be the first step toward such a move.

“Support is very strong,*' said Dennis Higgins, spokesman for the Continental chapter of ALFA. “We seeing more and more planes being parked. Some passengers have told us that they even noticed a difference in the operation. We think that within two days the operation will be halted."
Byron Whitehead, spokesman for the ALPA in Washington, said many pilots who were scheduled to operate other flights were walking off the job
"Only a small percentage of flights are continuing to be crewed by management personnel," Whitehead said
But Richard Adams, senior vice president of Continental operations, said the strike has not affected the earner.
“The strike is not effective We are having excellent loads, in some cases up to OO percent. When you consider that’s in the face of a strike and on a Saturday and on a day when we increased our prices, that’s very en-

Local pilot joins strike
When local Continental pilot Carey McWilliams arrives at San Antonio International Airport this morning, he won t be flying an airplane He’ll be carrying a picket sign About 1,500 Continental pilots announced their union strike Saturday. Since men. McWilliams said 60 pilots have crossed the picket line “But those guys are all DC-0 pilots No DC-10's are flying They're all grounded." McWilliams said
Those 60 pilots will soon “run out of time," he added “Federal Air Regulations prohibit a pilot from flying more than 30 hours in a seven-day week, or floor* than I hours rn a 24-hour pertwd So they’re going to run out of time soot. and there'll be nobody to fly the airplanes ”

By DY ANNE FRY Staff writer
Shoes were down. Cans were up. Pop-tops ware beyond the scope of one day's counting, and overall weight was about the lame, aa ane more Trashiest floated to a dose at Hillman Island Park.
Some 300 competitors pulled an estimated 0,000 pounds of debris from the Comal River Saturday — approximately the same amount registered in the "aggregate weight" competition last year. First and second place diving teams had I ASI pounds and l.lftS pounds, respectively.
Trashiest coordinator Sara Rougher figures the drink-container teams picked up lft,OOO bottles, cups and cans; which is about three times last year's total Between 300 and JOO shoes were found, as compared to ISO last year.
And Baugher said it would be almost impossible to guess the number of pop-tops collected When the first team to report counted 1,000, “a lot of the others just threw theirs on the truck They didn t even bother to weigh rn," said Baugher
First place went to the 0,000-top team The second-place team only had 2,546 pop tops.
