New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 4, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Page 4 a Herald-Ze/fung, New Braunfels. Texas Many women unhappy with marriage and men Sunday, October 4,1987 NEW YORK (AP) — Many women who are unhappy in their marriages are leaving their husbands emotionally and replacing them with lovers, children or work. according to a new study of sexuality and emotion by sexologist Shere Hite “The new definitions women are giving to relationships completely turn around ideas of what has been accepted for so long as female psychology,” writes Ms. Hite in her new book "Women and Love: A Cultural Revolution in Progress.” The women who participated in the study “are revising psychological theory of the last IOO years, challenging Freud and others,” writes Ms Hite, who holds two degrees in history. "Women and Love.” to be published Oct 26. is based on responses from 4,500 women aged 14 to 85. Ms. Hite mailed out more than 100.000 questionnaires beginning in 1980 To ensure anonymity, the questionnaires were distributed bv church and political groups and by women s rights organizations rather than sent to individuals. The book paints a dismal picture of male-female relationships and concludes men still view women’s basic role as one of emotional support and nurturing. Women, however, want things to change Ninety-eight percent of the women reported they were unsatisfied with some aspect of their relationships; 75 percent of the women married five years or more are having extramarital affairs, the book said. Many women said having affairs was the only way to stay in their marriages. in light of the isolation and alienation they felt from their husbands Among divorced women, 91 percent say they made the decision to split, not their husbands. Women say they are leaving because of emotional alienation and loneliness Manhunt continues after drug bust KENEDY, Texas IAP) — Residents were told to lock their doors and not let any strangers in as federal, state and local authorities continued a manhunt for several heavily armed suspects who fled after firing on officers foiling a cocaine drop at a rural airport, officials said. Two of the suspects were tracked down Friday after an early morning shoot-out with U S Custom agents left one man killed and another hospitalized. The suspects allegedly were unloading 1,100 pounds of cocaine from an airplane, U.S. Customs spokesman Charles Conroy said. “There s no doubt that they are part of a large, international drug ring. When you’re handling this much stuff, ifs got be well-organized and well-financed.” said Neil Lageman. special agent in charge of U.S. Customs in San Antonio Mike Cox, a Department of Public Safety spokesman, said one of the two taken into custody was spotted by a DPS trooper on State Highway 72 about 3p.m. The second was sniffed out by tracking dogs in a 6.000-acre area near the airport, he said Neither of the men was identified immediately. Lageman said they had scratches on their arms and faces from the brush or from barbed wire. DPS and custom officials continued searching for two to four people who fled from Nordheim Airport near this South Texas town Two helicopters and a U.S. Border Patrol plane searched the brushy terrain near the airport, about halfway between Kenedy and Cuero “They are believed to be heavily armed with pistols, rifles and possibly hand grenades.” Cox said. “The area has been sealed off. and we believe we have them contained in this area.” As more than 70 officers swarmed the roads and hills around Nordheim, population 369. residents talked of nothing but the manhunt “People are pretty uneasy,” said Silee Wofford. who operates a small service station in Nordheim with his wife. Lessie “Deputies told us to lock our house tonight and not open it for anyone, unless we have a strong light on and can see who it is.” Wofford told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times Customs agents in Houston tracked the aircraft from inside Mexico at about 3am Friday and followed its flight to McAllen before it land ed at the airport, about 15 miles northeast of Kenedy, in Dewitt County. Conroy said .^authorities knew in advance of the ship ment, and had staked out the airstrip where a van and pickup were waiting to load the drugs. Cox said. "We were waiting We allowed them to unload the plane and start to leave before we stopped them, ” Lageman said Officers lit flares at the airport entrance gate and ordered the vehicles to stop. Cox said “The drivers apparently tried to run over the officers and rammed through the gate,” he said The suspects then fired at the agents. Conroy said Three U.S. Customs agents and a DPS narcotics officer opened fire on the van, killing the passenger and wounding the driver. Cox said "Probably 15 shots were fired.” said Dewitt County Sheriff Bobby McMahan The pickup truck was not fired at, Cox said Clemente Caceres. 32, of Elsa, was taken to V ictoria Regional Medical Center where he was in serious condition. Conroy said The dead man has not been positively identified The pilot of what was believed to be a twin engine Beechcraft escaped, Lageman said In the meantime, he said, the smugglers' plane took off Aquifer officials proposing joint planning SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) — Agencies that regulate the use of water supplies should work together toward regional policies for groundwater conservation and surface reservoir projects, officials said Members of the Edwards Underground Water District board and municipal officials are considering taking planning for surface water out of the complete control of the City Water Board. That idea surfaced Friday during the first meeting between the Edwards board and a City Council committee studying water resource issues Soil Conservation for the next year met Friday in their first joint session The Edwards aquifer provides drinking water for the San Antonio metropolitan area and other communities in Central Texas. In recent years, concern has arisen on development over recharge areas for the aquifer and pollution threats The Edwards board rejected the idea that it be the managing agency for surface-water develop ment. said City Councilman Nelson Wolff The Applewhite reservoir is one such surface water project under consideration Since the expertise for that type of project already exists in other agencies, such as the San Antonio River Authority, the agencies should work together on a regional solution, said Water district General Manager Tom Fox after the meeting Mayor Henry Cisneros said he also was in favor of a regional approach They (the water district officials do not want to operate it.” Cisneros said after the meeting "but they were not opposed as an entity that serves as a contractor to bring everybody together ” Begin preparing grass seedbeds now By CARL ENGLERTH Soil Conservation Service Now is the time to start preparing next spring's seedbed for planting improved grass Preparing a seedbed for planting improved grasses must be considered as important as preparing a seedbed for row crops The initial preparation of the seed bed should begin in August in order to have a week-free firm seedbed by planting time in February and March The initial preparation is usually carried out by means of a turning plow or heavy cross-cut disk to remove existing plant competition This type of operation is necessary for land which has not been plowed recently The next and succeeding tillage operations can then be done by lightly disking or harrowing or by use of chemicals to control competing vegetative growth such as weeds and annual grasses that may occur from October through February The light disking may only be needed on land which has been in cultivation during tile last crop season Succeeding cultivation by ust* of the disk or harrow will also break and loosen the soil into smaller soil particles and improve the soil surface to accept more rainfall It is important to all planting practices that as much water as possible be stored in the subsoil before planting time and most of the competing plant residue has decayed If the seedbed is not firm by planting time. use a cultipacker, roller or similiar implement to firm the soil This practice is worth its weight in gold.” as one farmer puts it After the land is prepared, a current soil analysis should be used in determining the kind and amount of fertilizer to be applied The purpose of fertilizing is to maintain or improve the chemical and biological condition of the soil Fertilizer also supplies plant nutrients to stimulate plant growth and to help reduce soil and water losses by increasing quantity of plant growth Fertilizer can be applied before or after the actual planting of the grass In planting new improved grasses on old cropland, keep in mind that most all old croplands will have a very low inherent ferttli tv level Therefore, fertilizing will be an absolute necessity in getting the grass established and to maintain its growth One method that is being used locally to help improve the low fertility rate in soil of this nature is grow mg a legume crop one to two years prior to converting the field to an improved pasture Not all areas are low in inherent fertility Where land has had a dense cover of brush and the cover has been reduced by dozing or other means, the soil will usually be high in inherent fertility and organic matter However to obtain the answer as to how much fertilizer is needed don’t guess, use a soil test Soil testing information can be oth tamed locally from your Soil Conservation Service or the County Agriculture Extension Service office The next item of importance in planning your pasture is that only seed of guaranteed purity and germination should be used Remember, cheap seed of low quality may cost more ultimately than good seed The certified seed tag on a sack of seed guarantees the amount of pure live seed in the sack Therefore you should take ad vantage of this information and use it to ensure that adequate amounts of seed are being bought for the amount of acres to be Needed I find that it is very easy for people to misunderstand the technique used rn the seed tag information therefore we encourage you to come by or give us a call so we may assist you with this information Not all seeds have the same characteristics and quality just as no two farms or ranches are alike The type and kind of grass to plant will vary for your particular needs and objectives to the type and kind of grasses which are adapted to your soil and local climatic condi Hon Here again several factors should be considered by the lan downer before choosing the best grass for the situation The Soil Con servation Service will be able to assist in evaluating the different grasses for particular needs In New Braunfels, the SO is at 358 Landa St Hark Mall Building Room C Remember rn planting an improved pasture or doing range seeding you must try to take ad vantage and manage all of your resources to harmonize with the natural resources to ensure a sui. cessful grass establishment next spring Legumes
