Kendall Co. Livestock Bowling News
Prominent at S. A.
Livestock Exposition
Kendall County breeders of
fine livestock, and 4-H Club and
FFA members with their good
exhibits of fat animals, were
very much in -evidence at the
San Antonio Livestock Exposi-
tion, which officially opens this
Friday morning. When the
judging is completed by the mid-
dle of next week it will be
learned that some of the top an-
imals came from Kendall Coun-
ty and this trade territory.
4-H Club members Ralph
Kneupper of Kendalia and John
Masters of Sisterdale have 3
entries in the fat steer classes,
2 Herefords and 1 Brama Cross-
bred. These were class winners
at the Kendall County Junior
Show last month. FFA member
Elgin Marquart of Comfort will
know this Saturday just how
good his champion fat lamb of
both the Kendall County and
Hill Country Boys’ Show is. Har-
old Zoeller, Boerne FFA mem-
ber, has a fat steer entry in the
Shorthorn classes, and Marvil
L. Pfeiffer of the same organiza-
tion has 6 fat swine entries in
the Boys’ Swine Division.
Thornton Hereford Ranch has
5 head of their Registered Here-
fords there, and Fair Oaks
Ranch of Boerne has 8 head, in-
cluding 2 fat steers entered by
Marvin Maberry, Jr., who is en-
rolled in 4-H Club work in Bexar
County. Both Mr. Willmann of
the Thornton Ranch and Mr.
Maberry of the Fair Oaks Ranch
are working full time grooming
and feeding their charges.
Another busy man there we
noticed Louis Nagy, in charge
of the 23 head of registered Co-
lumbia sheep from the Nordan
Ranch in Kendall County. Most
people have not seen this breed
exhibited before, and many of
them stop to admire the good
animals. Bill Noll of Texas A.
6 M. College is down to help
Mr. Nagy show, Bill is a Boer-
ne boy who knows how to han-
dle sheep.
In the Quarter Horse division,
Deer Springs Ranch has 5 head
of their good ones showing, and
these show up as outstanding.
Judging of the fat steers,
lambs and swine in the boys di-
vision will be this Saturday, with
steer judging scheduled to begin
at 8:30 in the morning. Satur-
day is also Rural Youth day, and
quite a few of thes youngsters
are planning to see the rodeo in
the afternoon, i
County Agent C. E. Nelson of
Kendall County win be at the
show every day until after the
auction of fat animals next Wed-
nesday. Vocational Ag teachers
Bill Tomlinson of Boerne and R.
R. Tippit of Comfort are also
seen around the livestock build-
ings considerably. And large
numbers of Kendall Countians
are in evidence around the live-
stock barns every day.

Mrs. Dunn Thanked
For Fine Work
While attending the Ameri-
can Red Cross Camp and Hospi-
tal Council’s monthly meeting
held at Brooke Army Medical
Center, Fort Sam Houston, Tex-
as, Mrs. Mabel Dunn of Boerne
received the thanks of Miss Thel-
ma Rau, Director of the Ameri-
can Red Cross and the patients
of this hospital.
Mrs. Dunn is well known for
her service to the veterans. Four
years ago she asked herself what
she could do to help the patients
at the Veterans Hospital at Le-
gion, Texas, so she visited the
hospital to find out, and from
that first visit until the present
time she has conducted a one-
woman shopping service, at her
own expense.
One day each week she visits
the patients and gathers a list
of their shopping needs. The
next morning she is on the high-
way bright and early, headed for
San Antonio and a day of explor-
ing the stores to fill the re-
quests. The next day she makes
deliveries. She also wraps and
mails packages for the patients
and renders other services. Up-
on many occasions when the Red
Cross has not had transporta-
tion available, Mrs. Dunn has
delivered many supplies t o
Brooks from her Red Cross area.
Five nights a week, from 10
p. m. until 6 a. m. Mrs. Dunn is
a telephone operator at the Boer-
ne telephone exchange. Besides
holding a regular job and carry-
ing on her shoping service for
veterans, she keeps house for
herself and son, and is a mem-
ber of the American Red Crass
Camp and Hospital Council, Ala-
mo Chapter.
