New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 18, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas 4A New Braunfels Heratd-Zeitung Sunday, November 18, 1984 GOP pollster assesses '84 vote, below O pinions Herald-Zeitung Olive Kraaiir, General Manager Hohart Jolincoa, EditorGOP pollster: 'religious right' could cause split AUSTIN (AP) — The Republican coalition that flexed its muscles on election day is threatened by dissension sparked by the ‘religious right,” a top GOF pollster said Saturday. Responding to a question from his Democratic counterpart, Robert Teeter of Detroit said the GOP is “pretty united" on economic and foreign policy issues, but split on social issues. “Once it begins to get divided over all of those religious right issues, it threatens to pull itself apart,” Teeter said at an election analysis symposium at the University of Texas. Democratic pollster Peter Hart of Washington, who worked for the Walter Mondale campaign, said Republicans must realize the young and “upscale" voters attracted by the GOF this year could be scared off by the “new right” emerging within the party. The challenge to the Democrats, according to Hart, is “to prove they not only have the compassion to care, but the toughness to govern." Both pollsters agreed the Reagan landslide trumpeted the end of the New Deal coalition that powered the Democrats for decades. What will replace it in the long run has not yet clearly emerged, they said. Hart said Mondale faced a tough effort, given “the cards the Democrats were dealt.” “We were looking at a country where the mood was more optimistic than ifs been in 20 years,” he said. “This is a post-war report from Gen. Custer’s pollster,” Hart joked. “The results are in and it went a little less well than expected.” The Mondale campaign took several bad turns, he said, including the financial disclosure squabble that moved Geraldine Ferraro from a “special figure” to “another politician under siege.” Mondale’s tax plan also did little to help, according to Hart. The Democrats knew it could hurt, but they felt it was necessary to build Mondale’s image as a leader. “We had enough public opinion data to know raising taxes was not a popular issue in America,” said Hart, adding he knew the tax talk would cause a “firestorm." “By being bold and specific Walter Mondale could move up the (leadership) ladder, while giving up something on the issue front,” he said. The defeat was sealed after the second Reagan-Mondale debate, according to Hart, when “the question marks and uncertainties about Ronald Reagan seemed to become erased.” Teeter said the Democrats' efforts to redefine themselves begin with the 1988 election. “We saw a preview of that struggle with the Hart campaign,” he said. Panel moderator Bill Moyers of CBS asked Teeter if the Reagan camp was concerned after the first debate “when it appeared the president was out to lunch.” “Moderately,” replied Teeter. Overall, the Democrats — particularly .Jesse Jackson — scared the GOF into a voter registration drive that proved quite successful, Teeter said. “It scared the Republicans into putting a whole lot of money into registering voters themselves,” he said. Teeter also said the election branded parts of the south — especially Texas, North Carolina and Florida as Republican strongholds in presidential years. Moyers, who served as President Lyndon Johnson's press secretary, said it was a trend LBJ predicted after signing civil rights legislation. “I think I just delivered the South to the Republicans for the next 30 years,” Moyers recalled Johnson saying. Return of the Nimrod Remember when 10 years ago 25 years ago In a six-hour Texas Water Quality Board hearing at the Civic Center, the City of New Braunfels sought to establish that its procedures of collecting cut weeds from luanda Park and Landa Park Kslales are “99 percent efficient,” that the city is not liable for the waters of the Comal and Guadalupe, that the aquatic vegetation problem in l^ike Dunlap stems from factors other than luanda Park harvestings. The l^ike Dunlap Property Owners Association countered that inefficient methods of harvesting were allowing cut weeds to drift downstream and gather in lake Dunlap, and that the city had failed to act in good faith in protecting the rights of its neighbors. Kina F razier Elementary School will be dedicated Sunday. The school board renamed the school for Mrs, Kina Frazier in honor of her many years as teacher for what was formerly Goodwin Klementary School. She is now retired. The Canyon Cougarettes demolished Crystal City, 76-29, for their first victory of the basketball season after two losses. Lee Eoff led Canyon with 12 points, while Laura Cash was the leading rebounder. Following its retirement policy established for the 1960-61 school year, the NBISD Tuesday declared the principalship at New Braunfels Senior High open as of July 30, 1960, and called for applications for the position. The present principal, K.H. West, will be three years over the 65 age limit when the new policy takes effect West has been a principal in the district since 1927, and principal of the high school since 1930. Mrs. Marie Wright, mother of congressman Jim Wright of Fort Worth, became Comal County’s 50 years ago A campaign to rid the city of disease-spreading rats has resulted in the death of over 450 of the animals by Wednesday, according to Percy P. Schriewer, health inspector, who is directing operations. New Braunfels will be the next meeting place of the seventh district conference of the Texas Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, according to Mrs. Louise Krueger, president of the local club. Krwiu Busch, an employee of the Citizeus lee Company, was the first hunter to bring a deer to town early Friday morning, the opening day of the season. He had an 8-point buck. Erwin Rompel of Spring Branch exhibited the largest deer reported killed to date this season when he came to town with a 15-point buck. Notice that an additional quota of 500 drought-stricken cattle would be bought by the government in this county was received this week at the office of George Khlinger, county agricultural agent. A large representation of local football fans is expected to accompany the High School Unicorns team to Seguin Friday for the final game of the season against the Matadors. I^ist Friday, the team played Floresville to a scoreless tie in the last conference 28-B game of the season. si •8 V Viewpoint NBISD project deserves support eighth traffic fatality of the year Wednesday. She died after injuries sustained in a wreck at the intersection of U.S. 281 and Boerne Road. The rains came the second half and the Unicorns broke a 14-all tie to go ahead of the Robert E. l^e Volunteers, 28-20, to win their seventh game of the year Friday night at Unicorn Stadium. Jesse Wisdom scored two touchdowns, while Handy Heineu and Jimmy Heitkamp accounted for the other two Unicorn tallies. There are sentimental and practical reasons to back the fundraising effort to restore the facade of the old New Braunfels High School on West Mill. We support the project on both counts. New Braunfels ISL) wants to remodel the old school to house a new administration office, and hopes to raise $60,000 from school district patrons to restore the facade. If realized, the project will kill two birds with one stone. It will preserve die historic school, and it will give the district the new administration facility it badly needs. NBISD has the money for the remodeling, which was provided in last year's bond issue election. But it doesn't have money for the facade, and has appealed to the public for help. The facade is the sentimental part. New Braunfels has one of the oldest public school systems in Texas, and the old high school is a big part of its history. Many local citizens can trace their educational roots through its halls Built in 1913, it provides a link between the past and present. It was built w hen enrollment at the New Braunfels Academy, the town’s original school building, grew too large. Eventually, it was replaced by New Braunfels Middle School, which served as the high school until the current facility was built. Remodeling represents the practical aspects. The remodeled school should provide more space for the dollar than a new building would. We wouldn't suggest remodeling it if it wasn't sound, but it is. And it has space to handle grow th for a long time to come. As a result, we support the project. Remodeling w ill provide ample space al a reasonable cost and will ensure the school's preservation. We urge NBISI) patrons to contribute to the project. Wurstfest stays on right track Wurstfest officials have to be breathing a sigh of relief now that the annual celebration is over. The festival was due for some good luck, and it came this year: no major accidents or incidents were attributed to the 1984 festival. We’re as relieved as they are, because we feel Wurstfest has received a bum rap in the past few years. Wurstfest officials and the community have corrected problems when they arose, and the festival has survived. Whether folks around the state realize that is debatable. They will surely look to 1982 as Wurstfest’s watershed, make-or-break year. That was the year of one of the greatest tragedies in recent memory — four people, an entire family, wiped out in an instant by a car driven by an intoxicated Wurstfest celebrant. The accident brought more attention to the problem of drunken driving, and rightly so. But Wurstfest became the whipping boy in the process, and we thought that unfair. No amount of control (short of prohibition) can keep all drunken drivers off the road Local people know that Wurstfest had already made ti over the hump years ago. Problems of crow ding and crow d control were addressed prior to the 1978 festival with the acquisition of additional land, additional security and creation of a charge to get into the gates. Since then, the festival’s major problem has been bad luck. We mourned the deaths in 1982 along with everybody, but we didn’t think the answer was to pull the plug on Wurstfest. We think Wurstfest is good for New Braunfels. Yes, it has its inconveniences, but we think they’re outweighed by the economic good it does for the community. The festival pumps money into a variety of civic endeavors, from funding new fire trucks to paying for park improvements. Other towns would like to have that kind of inconvenience. 5URFING 7 THE MOWING OF MY INAUGURATION7 MMM! T, PLAN HONE/ I MU NOT TOLERATE THIS KINV OE DISRESPECT TOMM?
