N By GKORGE W. SAVAGE Continuing lor the balance of (W month, an exhibition of desert paintings by John W. Hilton, Tientynine Palms artist, author ad naturalist, will be presented to! the public at the Spanish Art C.allery, Studio 25, in Balboa Park, San Diego. The one-man exhibition opened Aug. 6. Already crowds have visited the gallery to ioe the work of this San Bernar dino County resident who says t'l have made this my desert through the process of living in it for the past 28 years. I have pandered its canyons and ridges on foot and horseback, crossed Us ' plains with cars and jeeps, dug into its vitals for semi-precious gems. , I attempt to give something more than a photographic rep-Jlca of the land I love. A jagged p'eak starkly outlined against a gulden dawn it more than a mountain and a sky to me or a pleasant combination ot colors to please an interior decorator. It ii a symbol ot promise. II I paint that synilml in a convincing manner according to the laws ot optics, geology and aerial perspective and have weeded out the unnecessary details to point up the Important ones, . then I feel I have gone a step beyond the photographic; jet I want every viewer to know it is a desert mountain against a golden sky without the need of a commentary . to explain these facts. "My subject matter is cryptic and symbolic by its very nature and does not need more than a forthright presentation to carry its message." I Thanks to a letter from Wil-Jiam C. King, proprietor of the King Drug Co. at Beaumont, I have learned more about Hootch" Simpson's skull. Last Week I mentioned that this dessert character's skull was owned by (ieorge Fipkin of Trona, King writes: "In jour column... you mention the skull of "Hootch" ,8impson, now in the possession yt George Pipkin of Trona. My .friend, Harold Weight of Twen-Ijnine Falm, whom you perhaps know, has (so he claims) the original rope, with noose, used to hang "Hootch" at Skidoo. He also has a copy of the original print of the re-enacted hanging of this man as was used In the Rhyolite and Los Angeles papers at the time... I am an ardent devotee of Death Valley and its history and am tremendously interested in all these little facts picked up here and there about its early days." . . . Thanks, Bill King for your comments and your kind words about the column. Jim Barnes, capable secretary of the Needles Boat Racing Club, writes that plans are well under way for the club's annual Labor Pay cruise on the Colorado Riv er, Sept. 3, 4 and 5. There'll be a cruise down the river to Lake Havasu and return on Saturday. Sunday finds the group going up the river to Bullhead City (lovely name), and return. There is surprise entertainment planned for Monday. What especially in terests us is the word that on the river cruises there will be guides who will point out points of Interest. We learn that Charles Rose, who was the fortunate one to receive title to the new Hospital House at Bear Valley, is the minister of the Church of the Brethren at El Cajon, Calif. He and his wife had made a donation to the Hospital House on July 4 while they were enjoying their first overnight visit with relatives residing at Big Bear. Aron Abraham sen says: "What we don't know we explain to each other." That must be the reason for a lot of our political pot-pourri of speeches. - According to a recent article in The Inyo Independent, the Sierra Nevada in Inyo-Mono area and the Death Valley region are sites of increasing herds of bighorn sheep. Fred Jones estimates there are more than 390 sheep in the Sierra Nevadas. A different Species, the Nelson bighorn which is found in Death Valley, approximated between 550 and 800 in 1959, according to Floyd Wells, park naturalist. These wonderful animals that look something like a short deer, with curved horns, are fully protected by law. The Sierra Nevada bighorn once occupied about 20 mile of the Sierra Crest, a range reduced today to about 170 miles. According to Jones, In J9I9 five distinct herds could be found at Convict Creek, Birch Mountain, Mt. Baxter, Mt. Williamson and Mt. Langlcy, The Nelson bighorn sheep in California range eastward from the White Mountains, just east of Bishop, down through the mountains of eastern San Bernardino County. ' Both the male and female bighorn grow horns which ate never shed. Growth rings on the horns indicate the animal's age... In cooperation with the State Fish land Game Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service now is conducting a study of bighorn sheep in Death Valley and their range relationship to the burro, which is one of its chief competitors for food and water. A friend of mine says its a pity that folks can't exchange problems. Everyone seems to know bow to solve the other fellow's. Satellite watching seems to be the space age companion of the more earthly bird watcher. Ever since the Echo satellite balloon was shot into orbit, folks have been craning their necks skyward to follow the course of this speed ing man-made star. No longer does one blame a stiff neck onto a cool draft, or a sideways glance at a pretty girl walking along a windy street. Now you refer to it as "satellitus"...We watched the balloon satellite for about 17 minutes as it crossed the sky one evening last week. It as cended into the firmament above us, rising in the southwest, pass ing "through" the constellation Sagittarius, traveling "over" the Evening Star, thence on across the night sky to set a few minutes later in the northeastf An hour and four minutes later it repeated its flight across the what we once thought of as a void. Now it's a passageway for Sputniks, Discoverers, and an Echo balloon.
