In February in Iowa, we peer out our window- so to speak— and take consolation that our days are lengthening. We take measure of the snow, the drifts impeding our progress and look out at the trees standing bare and lonely in a frigid world. We little note that shrubs and trees are only dormant so they can burst forth to new born life come spring; or that the snow covered lawns and meadows are but resting in their cycle so that they can give us a carpet of green, later. The treasures of the snow (nitrogen) mantles a dormant world to make all nature rejoice when spring comes to the northland. Here in the southland about El Paso, only the tall mountain peaks know the kiss of snow. The so-called desert which some think bare and empty is not really that; it is sparsely covered by grass or gray-green shrub such as mesquite, chapparel, creosote bush and others which wage an age old, tenacious battle against an often hostile environment. Around the homes and buildings of the city, the shrubs stay green and refreshing because of watering. Despite a hard frost, my daughter's rose outside their home continued to put forth lovely blooms. Later, I pruned it back. Ever interested in the soil and the work of men's hands, we took a tour of the old El Paso Missions and the surrounding land. Much like in California, the early Jesuit missionary fathers set out to convert the Indians in Texas and to establish missions along the way. From that time and even now, a religious or Christian atmosphere pervades the south. Today, the south is a stronghold of the Baptists which are fundamental in faith. It was coincidental that we attended a large southern Baptist church and heard the testimony of the All American star and assistant coach from the Louisiana University football team. Standing high over El Pasc- and Juarez-, atop the 4,576 foot mountain in the city's upper valley stands the 35-foot highCristo Rey — Christ the King— statue. This Christ of the Rockies marks the point where the states of Texas, New Mexico and Chihuahua, Mexico, converge. To both nations, it is a symbol of chris­ tian devotion of all faiths. A huge star, illuminated at night during the Christmas season, also glows warmly on the side of the mountain on the north outskirts of Fort Bliss and El Paso. But back to the Missions: We first stopped at the old Ysleta Mission. Founded way backthere ACROSS 1. Appraise 5. Jacob's 11. Not at home 12. Unwilling 13. Cook 14. Doctrines 15. Wrath 16.

The soil of Ysleta was first broken by the Indian plow in 1681 just east of the mission. Today, this land is the oldest cultivated soil in continuous cultivation within the U. S. The land was first planted to Indian maize, then grapes and finally premium grade cotton for which the Valley is noted. The missionary fathers had a method in their madness of establishing missions on the desert for, close by, flowed the life giving waters of the Rio Grande. Through all the centuries, this winding stream has furnished life for plants and man along the way. From Ysleta, we traveled the route of El Camino Real-Spanish for The King's Highway and thoroughfare of the Conqulsta- dores but which today is a paved farm-to-market road to Socarro, to San Elizario and other old points of interest which I may detail in a later article. The flat land near the Rio Grande is intersected by irrigation ditches used for watering the crops by flooding. We noticed some wells to supplement the canals. Fields of chili peppers were red with fruit perhaps awaiting later harvest. Predominant over all crops, was cotton; fluffs of cotton clinging to bare stalks and bale upon bale of cotton in the farmyard or nearby warehouses. ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, TUES., FEB. 1, 1972 Pttgt.
