Council will seat new members, choose mayor
By OY ANNE FRY Staff writer
City Council will seat its two .newest members Monday night, then decide who will serve as mayor and mayor pro tem for the next year.
The council will meet in executive session at 7 p.m. to discuss legal matters. Jose Valdemar Espinoza and Betty Lou Rushing, representing their respective districts I and 2, will be sworn in during the regular meeting, begin
ning at 7:30 p.m. in the council chamber at City Hall.
Council members will choose their own mayor and mayor pro tem; and there will be a new person in at least one of those spots this year. Gerald Schaefer, who has been mayor pro tem since September 1981, was unseated by Rushing in the Aug. 13 council election. He had served a total of six years on the council.
Mayor O.A. Stratemann has sat on the council for four years, two of them in the mayor’s seat. He may or may not be chosen
mayor again on Monday, but either way, his present term will carry him through to the 1965 election.
Monday is also the night when the city’s elected representatives get their annual salary of $1 each. This handsome sum is usually paid in cash, since the accounting department has found that a check for $1 costs more than it’s worth.
The newly organized council will consider approving the Solid Waste Control Board s emergency purchase of landfill machinery;
talk about buying right-of-way for a street extension and listen to recommendations from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, which met Tuesday night. The council will need to appoint two people to serve on the parks board until October of 1966 Terms of Irma Alvarado and board chairman Sharon Blair expire this month.
Council members will also face requests for a parade permit, a bonfire permit, a building permit and a building variance.
The parade in question is the Comal County
Fair parade, set for Sept 23 The bonfire is a New Braunfels High School project, set for Oct. 6 in Cypress Bend Park. J.C. and S.J. Pritchard want permission to build a retaining wall and boat shed on Lake Dunlap. And a builder working at 494 S. Seguin Ave. wants a variance that would allow his fire escape to encroach on the Butcher Street nght-of-way.
In other action, the council will read a controversial “no parking” ordinance for the third and last time; and consider the second reading of rental fees for the luanda Park gazebo and dance slab.

Soviets got shoot orders
Cutting the waves
A water skier cuts a “rooster tai!" in the timed slalom Saturday at the Two-Round Slalom and Two Round Trick Novice
Tournament on Lake Dunlap The event was sponsored by the Lake Dunlap Water Ski Club.
MOSCOW < AP) — A man identified as the Soviet fighter pilot who shot down the South Korean jumbo jet said Saturday he got the order to fire after the plane ignored his warning shots and other signals to land He appeared in an extraordinary television broadcast with two other pilots.
A second pilot said he pursued the jumbo, and that he was convinced it was a spy plane or “even a bomber ’’ He and the man who flew the attack plane were interviewed at their base on Sakhalin island, the television said The Soviet island is in the area where the airliner is believed to have crashed. All 269 people aboard are presumed dead.
A third pilot was tnlervijjrcd rn Kamchatka, the peninsula which, like Sakhalin, is the site of major Soviet defense installations. He said the “intruder" plane flew with no lights All three appeared on the main television evening news program, a very' rare occurrence in the Soviet Union, which normally does not give the public such information about sensitive issues It was the second surprising news media event in as many days. On Friday, top Soviet officials, including the chief of staff, held a news conference on the affair. It was broadcast live abroad — but was not shown in the Soviet Union.
The pilots on the evening news show, Vremya, were not identified byname. The pilot who apparently fired the missile had streaks of gra> hair and appeared to be in his 40s Wearing a brown leather flying jacket and interviewed at his base on

TOKYO (AP> — A fisherman found a second body that washed up on Hokkaido's northeastern coast, and a police spokesman said Sunday it could be one of the 269 people killed when a Soviet jet fighter downed a South Korean jumbo jet
The spokesman in the city ai Abashin said the face was missing hut a lock of auburn hair on the back of the head indicated the body was that of a white woman
Specialists began examining the corpse to determine if the victim had been aboard the Korean Air lunes Boeing 747 shot down Sept I when it strayed into Soviet air space.

Commissioners sift through final salary arguments
The weeks of paper-aifting and number-juggling will soon come to a close. Comal County Commissioners hope to have the 1964 budget approved by the end of this week.
A last workshop session, held Fridsy with peace justices from precincts I and 4, called the commissioners’ attention once again to something they've known all along, the funds available just won’t cover everything that county officials would like to have.
County Judge Fred Clark told Harold Krueger and Howard Smith that they’d
probably be getting a five percent salary increase, as will most other elected officials. No one could come up with a remedy for the fact that Krueger, as Precinct I Justice, does almost more work than the other three combined.
Peace Justice Precinct I takes in the near half of the River Road area, always a lively spot for judges and law officers during the summer months. Krueger’s territory also covers most of the City of New Braunfels, which includes the jail, the hospital and more
than half of the population When someone drowns at Canyon lake, it’s Precinct 4 Justice Smith’s job to pronounce him dead But Krueger said, “I get a call on every death at the hospital, whether it’s accidental or not. ”
The same goes for prisoners brought to the Comal County jail. It takes a magistrate to bring formal charges, or to set bond. The suspects might be picked up anywhere in the county, but if the arresting officer can’t find the peace justice on location, he can always
call Krueger when he gets to town In recognition of this fact, the Precinct I job cames a higher salary than precincts 2-4 Krueger makes $19,000 per year, while the other three justices make $17,000 When Clark asked for suggestions on how to even out the load, Krueger and Smith couldn’t come up with much.
“It's the responsibility of each peace justice to take care of his own precinct We've discussed this before, and pretty much come up with the same conclusion,” Krueger said
All four justices are willing to help out in another precinct when needed, he added Theoretically, the JPs are on call 24 hours a da> But their jobs are classed as part-Ume, so each spends some time doing other things, too.
Clark asked whether it would work to set up a rotation schedule, putting a different judge “on call" at the jail or hospital each weekend and giving the others some tune off “if you can’t find a judge, the guy sits there

On the way out
CET A jobs face termination in South Central Texas this month
By DEBBIE DsLOACH Staff writ*
Time Is running out for seven Community Council af South Central Texas (CCSCT) employees in New Braunfels, working with the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA).
As of Sept. SO, jobs will be terminated for the New Braunfels seven, (due 12 others in CETA offices in Kerrville, Floresville, Pleasanton, Pearsall, Kennedy and Seguin.
Waiting in Ult wings for CETA’s self-destruction is the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), CCSCT spokesman John Flavin said Friday.
“There are two striking differences between the two programs. JTPA will ba administered more at the state level, whereas CETA was more federal,” Flavin added. “Also, behind JTPA is the idea of job training, which means finding a job which will help i as well as the individual.
“CETA was really a different type of program. Over the years, its emphasis shifted more to client service. It was sympathetic to the poor’s needs, and created lots of jobs,” Flavin said. “It was basically a more free-spending approach than JTPA, and now the business community will take up a more decision-making role in the nuts and bolts of the program.”
Evan with the defunding of CETA, Flavin said it’s possible not ail of the 19 CETA employees will be out of work.
“We (New Braunfels) didn’t have a CETA program all our own. We were more of a subcontractor to San Antonio,” Flavin explained. “JTPA will operate on about half the funthng CETA got, so the services will be reduced correspondingly.”
The Alamo Area Council of Government! < AAOOG) will be the “new service deliverer," Flavin said, for the JTPA program. “It will ba up to
AACOG how many people it might hire back, but I know we’U keep one or two here to close out the CETA program ” The close-out date is set for Nov. 15, he added.
“AACOG will need someone to administer their new program, so it’s reasonable that those 19 now with CETA would know a lot and not all would be out of work for long,” Flavin said
The way the JTPA will work, Flavin outlined, is through a partnership with government and business. “The government has expertise, so to speak, in training people through its work with CETA, but no input from business So JTPA has been reorganised with a board of directors from the business community called the Private Industry Council (PIC)."
Flavin said examples of JTPA partnerships might be classroom training, or helping a displaced employee find work through training in another area, or on-the-job training.
