In a nearby apartment there were some who had doubtless heen in the rain but yet were trying to overcome the Interior dryness, and they chortled loud In ghoulish glee but finally slept.

The weather was muggy hot and when we fanned the gnats and mosquitoes away from our eyes long enough to look around we decided for the first time that we did not care to winter on the Rio Grande. In spite • of many good friends there, including W. A, Smith, his daughter Barbara and her husband, John Ford, we decided to leave. Art said he was listed for the annual deer hunt and promised us venison. I told him it all depended on the age of the buck. We did not wait but doubtless today he is sitting up In a tree on the ranch waiting for a poor old buck to come strolling by! Having wqrd from' our good friends here that they would hold an apartment for us, we started across Texas, which is a long trip. First night we stopped at Del Rio. We found fine new highway construction up along the Rio Grande since we. had last passed that way and many things along the route for the entertainment or comfort of travelers. Texas is a friendly place to friendly people but is no place for the "holier than thou" sort ot beings who don't belong anywhere. Del Rio has a delightful winter climate, clear and sunny, and seldom down to freezing, and is a very clean, modern city. It seems to be quite clean .of quack doctors since Brinkley was squeezed out some years before he died. The trip westward from Del Rio is marked with some interesting points. The great canyon gorge of the Pecos is unexpected In a section with that terraine. Beyond this the highway builders put what they call a courtesy loop through Langtry, the town of Roy Bean, sell-styled "Law west of the Pecos," In pioneer days. They have left the buildings as they were, even to the empty whiskey barrels on the porch. (I guess they were empty). From here on It's a cattle range country which Improves as we approach the Davis mountains north ot the Big Bend. This section is being developed Into a national park as it borders the Rio Grande river Just across from Mexican territory, which I understand Is also to become a park area. In this section of Texas the famous Marta Hereford Cattle association raises the finest possible range cattle because they will not. permit mongrel stock In that section. Through the years vast fortunes have been made and saved by those cattlemen's families. At Alpine we decided to take a new route so turned at the corner of the State Teachers college campus and followed the highway toward Ft. Davis, the site of the old pioneer days. This Is really a fine trip and I suggest it, except in winter, Instead of the other by Marfa. Do not do it In winter as they have heavy snow in the Davis mountains. The scenery is very interesting, the fertile valleys are full of cattle and around the homes are seen some fruit trees that look quite healthy where they have had any care. There is a small astronomical observatory on one of tbe mountains and from various signs and tracks through the mountains I assume It's quite a playground for students from the State Teachers college. After we had passed the county seat town of Ft. Davis we began to talk over the stopping place for the night. Friend wife studied the map and Interpreted the fact that no very good place seemed probable unless we swung around by Marta or made the long trip to Van Horn. As I am allergic to night driving wo decided to Just drift on and hope. Soon after we drove out of the hills we came to a Junction corner named Toyahvale. Suddenly we realized it had a familiar look and that we passed It last spring. We had been at Balmorrhea State park where there i» one of the largest known man-made outdoor swimming pools. The water Is supplied by an enormous spring. H enters a canal and eventually is used to Irrigate a large section of the big flat valley where alfalfa, cotton and other crops are raised. At the park also Is a large auto court, so here by the gurgling waterfall In the canal we were very comfortable. In summer season doubtless the park has many visitors but Just then It was not crowded. Supper was available at the dining hall. The lady said. "What would you folks like? I don't have anything but "steak." We kept our faces straight and said, "If that's all you have we will try to struggle along with it." Now it OPA could have seen, the big tender steak (remember what I said of the Herefords), the vegetables and trimmings and then the big banana cobbler with cream on It for dessert, for a very reasonable price, they would have gnashed their teeth, torn their hair and then ordered supper themselves.
