Page 10B - Wednesday, February 19, 1986- The Seguin Gazette-Enterprise : 'rS! Historical Foundation prints photo history AUTO HfLP WANTfD 1 OBlHfLP WANT*D 108 ABILENE (AP) - The Texas Historical Foundation didn't have to look far to find a project for the 1986 Sesquicentennial. Its vice president, W.P. "Bill" Wright Jr. of Abilene, filled the bill. The Abilene businessman, recently elected chairman of the Texas Committee for the Humanities, recalled the success of a photographic history of Abilene in which he had been involved. That project had been put together and printed by the University of Texas Press for the city's centennial. The volume was a success, so why shouldn't a photographic history of Texas go over big? Wright became involved in the foundation's sesquicentennial project during a conversation in 1982 with John Ben Sheppard, another longtime board member and former Texas attorney general. "He asked me to think about a project," Wright said. That conversation led to a two- volume photo history of Texas. The first volume covers the years from 1050 to 1980, and the second from 1980 to now. "We felt there should be one volume of Texas history and one of contemporary times," Wright said. The "Historic Texas" volume includes photographs selected from among thousands collected throughout the state. They date from the earliest days to the start of the 1980s and cover many facets of early Texas life. "The 'Contemporary Texas' volume is the work of 16 world-class photographers selected to show the Texas of today," said Wright, himself a keen amateur photographer. Many months were spent planning, securing financial support and editing material before printing by Texas Monthly Press. Initial funding of $105,000 for the editorial budget came from Dupont and Conoco, Wright said. As director of the project, Wright put together an editorial team that included Martha A. Sandweiss, curator of photographs for Fort Worth's Amon Carter Museum, general editor; Roy Fluklnger, curator of the photography collection at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, associate editor; and Anne W. Tucker, curator of the Gus and Lyndall Wortham collection Houston Museum of Fine Arts, contributing editor. "Each editor was asked to select five photographers to work on the contemporary volume," Wright said. In addition, the editors invited author William A. Owens to write the essay for the historic volume, and Stephen Harrigan, senior editor of "Texas Monthly," to do an essay for the contemporary volume. Both accepted, and their essays add much to the books, Wright said. "We also were able to get Richard Pearce-Moses to work full time in locating photo collections," Wright said. "He visited archives, and looked over private and corporate collections. There were literally thousands of photographs viewed from which the final selections were made." Pearce-Moses has extensive experience both as a working photographer and as a photographic, archivist. During the course of the project additional funds were granted by the Texas Commission on the Arts through the Amon Carter Museum, Wright said. In addition to a boxed, limited edition the books are available unboxed and can be purchased as a set or by single volumes. The historic volume is $29.95 and the contemporary volume $35 at bookstores throughout Texas. Profits will go to the Texas Historical Foundation — one-half to aid the Capitol restoration and the other half for the foundation's project of identifying and cataloging the historical photography collections in Texas. Each photographer agreed to donate one set of prints to the Humanities Research Center and one set to Amon Carter Museum for a traveling exhibit to be shown in Texas. Fajitas make their way to Midwest, New York FREMONT (AP) — Hector Recio can't understand why fajitas, the sizzling Tex-Mex cuisine making its way north, has become so popular in recent years. He can remember the beef skirts used as scrap meat 50 years ago, when he was 8 years old. "I was raised on them. And who would have thought that fajitas would ever pick up like they did," he said. Recio's father was a butcher northwest of this South Texas community and Recio had to get up early to help him slaughter steers. "The first thing they did after slaughtering it was to get the liver and the fajitas and to put them right on the coals," he said. The beef skirt has been popular in the Southwest and particularly among Mexican-American families in South Texas for generations. Within the last five years, however, the popularity has extended beyond the Red River. Beef industry officials hope the fajita will change the minds of weight-conscious consumers who are straying away from red meat and to fish and poultry. "We feel it is answering some of the consumer demands, in that it can be a lighter product in a small portion size. It can be an appetizer or an entree," said Mary Adolf, director of food services and retail program for the National Livestock and Meat Board. "It's something that's fun. You can do what you want with it," she said. Fajitas — little belts in Spanish — hold in place the cattle's heart and lungs. There are only two fajitas on each calf or steer and they range in size from 12 to 18 inches in length depending on the animal. Fajitas also were used for ground meat, but are now making their way to the Midwest and Manhattan. "I think that Mexican-styled food is becoming more popular countrywide ... and it has gotten more popular as more traditional dishes, like fajitas, become better well known," said Bill McMillan, a former U.S. Department of Agriculture official. "It's good food, good flavor, and different. They had been fairly well confined to the border states until more recent years and now have become more widely known and widely accepted," said McMillan, former USDA assistant secretary for marketing. Because of their demand the most tender fajitas are becoming expensive — about $3 a pound in grocery stores and more for prepared dishes in restaurants across the country. That price compares with about 10 cents a pound for fajitas in the 1930s, Recio said. Ms. Adolf said that northern Mexican food restaurants have added fajitas to their menus and that chain hotels across the country also have included it in their restaurants. Restaurants have different ways of preparing fajitas. Some marinate them, using special spices to tenderize and season the meat. Some even have substituted more tender cuts of meat. Others prepare them with green peppers and onions. Some have added chicken fajitas to their menus. Many restaurants are broiling them over mesquite coals. Most serve the beef fajitas in strips, sizzling hot with flour tortillas and such toppings as guacamole, cheese, sour cream and "pico de gallo," a mixture of onions, green peppers and tomatoes. "It's a real tasty piece of meat if you fix it right," Recio said. "You can ruin a fajita. Sometimes I do that." Two years ago, Recio and his son, Homero, traveled through South Texas and northern Mexico in search of the origin of fajitas. Homero Recio, a lecturer of animal science at Texas A&M University, obtained a fellowship to find out more about fajitas. His research led him back to his own family. "I think it was Daddy who was the first, according to Mother, who is still alive, to come up with the term — fajita," the elder Recio said. He said when he was growing up barbecue pits or grills were unheard of and meat had to be placed directly on the mesquite coals. Fajitas had skin on them and that kept the juices inside. "We put this right on top of the coals," Recio said, demonstrating with three strips of marianatcd meat. "I haven't done this in a long time. I don't know how they will turn out." Twenty minutes later, after continuous turns, the three strips of meat had shrunk. Recio pulled the skin apart with his fingers. "Jt may have a few ashes on it, but other than that it's good," he said as he bit into a fajita-filled flour tortila. "And see all the juice that's still inside." But Hecio satd the emerging popularity of Tex-Mex food, especially fajilas, is ironic. He remembers when he used to be ashamed of it when he was going to school with Anglos. Back then, tacos and sandwiches, like the children that brought them for lunch, did not mix, Recio said. "We were taught to respect and to be ashamed, I guess, of what we were," Recio said. "The Mexican kids used to group around a mesquite tree, a corner, have our tortillas and beans, potatoes, eat in hurry and then go out and play. That was part of growing up. We are not ashamed of what we door eat anymore." 1950 Chev. original, 1900. 1952 Chev. original, perfect condition, $1,800. Also 4- burner stove, $150. 3790420.
