New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 12, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas ★ Krueger.Titanic could have been saved Continued on Page 1A in the six-man race for the nomination the first time,” Krueger recalled. “And over 60 percent of Comal County went for me in the general election that first time, and on re-election it was even a larger margin.” He believed the speculation got started about his running when one of the congressmen he talked to had repeated their conversation to a Dallas Morning News reporter. “Until a month or so ago I was Heavy rains force sewage dumping SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Heavy rains forced the city of San Antonio to dump about 16 million gallons of almost raw sewage into the San Antonio River, officials said. Waste Water Management Director Joe Aceves confirmed Wednesday that crews at the Rilling Road treatment plant allowed the sewage to be released into the river downstream from the plant. The sewage had been chlorinated but not treated at the plant, Aceves said. The plant has not been operating at full capacity because parts of it are under repair. Apparently the facility flow could not handle the extra caused by the downpour. “They had more water than their plant can handle because of the rain,” river authority investigator Mike Gonzalez said. “But ifs a problem for all sewer systems everywhere, not just in San Antonio. “Their problem was the rainwater and there is construction so they are not at full operation,” he said. \ \ LESLIE KRIEWALDT HERALD ZEITUNG New judge County Court at Law Judge Charles Blackley will have & formal swearing in ceremony 4 p.m. today with Chief Justice Robert Shannon of the Texas Court of Appeals giving the oath.

The former representative lost two U.S. Senate races by close margins in 1978 and 1984. Krueger was appointed to the Lloyd Bentsen professorship in business and government in August by the University of Texas regents. The position means he teaches a graduate seminar at the LBJ School on U.S.-Mexico business and government relations. Krueger, 49, served President Jimmy Carter’s administration as the ambassador-at-large to Mexico and as the U.S. coordinator of Mexican Affairs. ★ Inmates. Continued from Page 1A for a couple of weeks before the security precautions were eased. But prison officials have labeled the entire system, which includes some 38,000 inmates housed at 27 separate units, as very tense. Most of the recent violence has been attributed to a recruiting war between two Hispanic gangs known as the Texas Syndicate and the Texas Mafia. “Part of the initiation rite is that you beat someone or stab someone,” Guthrie said. Officials estimated about 800 inmates are participants in gangs but said the number was very conservative. “It’s the ones we don’t know about that scare the hell out of me,” said McCotter. “We’ve got to put a stop to this now. And ITI lock down every unit if I have to.” “I’m not going to let them (gangs) dictate how this unit operates,” said Darrington Unit Warden Michael Moore. Eight slayings, recorded in eight days, brought the number of homicides this year in the state prison system to 26, one more than the record set in 1984. Three inmates were stabbed to death Sunday night at Darrington, south of Houston, in an attack that lasted no more than 45 seconds. Another gang slaying occured on Monday at the nearby Ramsey II Unit. “The only thing we can do is increase our vigilance, make our presence known,” said Ramsey Warden Lepher Jenkins. ★ Weather. Continued from Page 1A it takes quite a while to find the problem.” The downed line was across U.S. 281 near the Guadalupe River. New Braunfels Utilities customers experienced even fewer problems. “We had only one very minor outage, and it lasted only a very short time,” a spokeswoman for New Braunfels Utilities said. Weather service officials said that there is a 50 percent chance of rain today, decreasing to 20 percent tonight and 40 percent Friday. A fair weekend is expected.

Xerox Cp 514 514 514 ZenithE US 114 HS WASHINGTON (AP) - “Tragedy needn’t have existed” with the 1912 sinking of the oceanliner Titanic because a nearby ship, the Californian, could have rescued the passengers who died, a scientist who discovered the sunken vessel claims. “There is no doubt it (the Californian) could have gone in there and rescued those people,” when the elegant oceanliner struck an iceberg and went down, Robert Ballard told reporters Wednesday. Ballard, 43, chief scientist of the U.S.-French team that found the Titanic in 13,000 feet of water about 560 miles from Newfoundland on Sept. I, said his evidence shows the Californian’s captain “didn’t report his position right.” The Californian made no attempt to reach the wreck in which more than 1,500 people perished. About 700 people rescued, largely because a third ship, the Carpathia, steamed to the scene when the Titanic foundered on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York. Ballard, who refused to disclose the precise location of the Titanic on grounds that scavengers might seek it out, said there “is no doubt that that tragedy needn’t have existed ... The Californian was inside of IO miles, perhaps as close as four miles, and there is no doubt it could have gone in there and rescued those people. It’s just tragic.” “I’d like to say more about that, but I probably shouldn’t,” Ballard Elsie's Tours 605 Gloria Seguin, Texas 78155 379-1257 Oct, 1 - Travelers Get Together' 2 -5 p.m. Seguin American Legion Hall Refreshments & Fun Oct. 18-21 - Louisiana Cajun Festival Swamp Tour, Delta Downs Races "Laisse Le Bon Ton Roule" $245.00 Oct. 24 - "Lost Maples" - 1 Day Tour $19.00 Nov. 2 & 3 - Laredo "Fun Weekend" La Posada ■ Buffet Breakfast Shopping or Races - Only $79.00 Houston "Galleria" Fun Day $25.00 Nov. 26 The Professionals In Commercial And Residential Roofing All Over Central Texas For Nearly 40 Years r\rr i« "Christmas" at Country U.S.A. & Dinner at Yoakum $22.00 Paying Better Than Em SAVINGS BONDS declared. “What I’ve said already isn’t very nice.” The role of the Californian in the disaster has been debated for years. Passengers aboard the Leyland liner said they saw the Titanias distress rockets and even its running lights. “There’s no way it could have been that far for them to see that kind of detail in those (weather) conditions,” Ballard commented. The scientist said the Titanic was found only after the U.S.-French team concluded that the captain of the Californian, Stanley Lord, had misrepresented his position relative to the doomed vessel because of his “vested interests.” “The behavior of the Carpathia proved of most importance to us,” in leading the scientists to the wreck’s real location, said Ballard. “That skipper was a doggoned good skip- MAO. H per. Ballard also disclosed that after “mowing the lawn” — searching the sea-floor — time and again highly advanced technological gear, the Titanic actually was found by “a 25-year-old echo sounder — it could Crossword have been done in a fishing boat.” Ballard is senior scientist for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, funded by the Navy, and which co-sponsored the search for the Titanic with the French Institute for Research and Exploration of the Sea. Ballard, in a 90-minute press briefing at the National Geographic Society, reiterated that he believes the Titanic should be left at her grave. “It’s a memorial,” he said. “It belongs where it is and should remain there.” The scientist released new photographs of the Titanic taken by two unmanned research vessels, some showing great detail, such as unbroken plates and wine bottles. He said he and fellow researchers were surprised to find the vessel in essentially one piece, though most of the stern was broken off. “We couldn’t wipe the grins off our faces for the longest while,” he said, at finding the ship so intact. He noted that only the middle two of four smokestacks remained. ★ Cougars— Continued from Page 7A And while Del Valle’s offense has Canyon worried, the Cougar offense should have the Cardinals shaking. Canyon rolled up 48 points and scored five of the first six times it had the ball against Gonzales last week. “We feel the offense is our strength,” Burch said. “We feel we can move the football. I may be completely wrong about that, but I don’t think so.” About the only flaw in Canyon’s offense last week was on extra points, where the Cougars did not convert a kick. “We’ve worked real hard on the kicking this week,” Burch noted. “We’ve gotten some good work in, and we have two or three guys who can kick it. They just haven’t performed under that pressure yet.” Danny Hernandez, Canyon’s alldistrict kicker from a year ago, strained a leg muscle two weeks ago and hasn’t been able to kick. But he can do everything else, including run the Cougar offense. Still, the key to the game will be stopping the Veer. “I think we can stop them if we play hard and take care of our responsibilities,” Burch said. “The secondary has to play a little better pass defense and the people responsible for the pitch have to do a better job.” Burch’s confidence in the defense comes from close examination of last week's film. “We allowed a couple of big plays, but overall we didn’t play that badly,” he said. “Hopefully we can correct our mistakes.” ACROSS 1 Sila s spouse 5 Shoal 9 Big teeth 14 Article 15 Florence's river 16 Remove ropes 17 Bus abbr 18 Gain favor 20 Noun suffix 21 — Mar, Cal 22 Decayed 23 Equip with new weapons 25 Hindu guitar 27 Intimate 29 Sad sound 30 Noble 34 Direction Fr 38 on!” 38 Wild party 39 Numismatists field 42 Moslem deity 43 Comforter 44 Wrong pref 45 Bottomless 46 Container 47 Fictional plantation 49 Blanc-51 Flower part 54 Afterworld 58 An armed force: abbr 60 Loathsome 61 Continuous 63 Ending for Mex or Amer 64 Boulder 65 Middle - 66 Gemstone 67 Delegates 68 Forward 69 Trees DOWN 1 Kitchen tool 2 Repent 3 Commercial 4 Current unit 5 Invasion 6 Falcons of the sea 7 Shakespeare s medium 8 Pro 9 Instructor 10 Fixed amount 11 Photocopy 12 Flying toy 13 Bird food 19 Semite 24 Time of year 26 Conveys 28 — Bravo 30 Finial PREVIOUS PUZZLE SOLVED IF El f I I 31 Fragrant var 32 Kidney pref 33 Shorter 34 Modified organism 35 Unique 37 Gather 38 Leather item 40 Siesta 41 Whale pre! 46 Walking aid 48 Update 49 Apportions 50 Oleate 52 Frighten 53 Advances 54 Catcall 55 Being Sp 56 Eden's earldom 57 Peddle 59 Fit together 62 Punishment 1 3 3 14 17 30 33 57 rn 39 43 45 i • 16 ll 12 13 ?? 51 I 64 67 We're Here To Help With the best communications system In the Hill Country.
