(News-Herald Staff Photo) Religious Rock Crowd Rolls In and Back Out Good Neighbors Meeting Tonight DEATH VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — The edge of Death Valley, so named because of the desolation, rattlesnakes, intense heat and choking alkai dust, doesn't appear to be the place to hold a religious rock festival. Just such an event was proposed for Easter and over the weekend vehicles loaded with .mostly young people began rolling into the crumbling adobe ruins of Ballarat, an old mining . town. Mini-Bike Found Missing From Display A mini-bike was stolen from in front of the Sears store at 704 Ave. F Monday. The mini-bike was put outside the store on display at 9:30 a.m. and was first noticed missing around noon, Del Rio police report. i The bike is red in color with a black seat and has a three horse power engine. No value of the mini-bike was made in the police report. A purse was taken from an automobile belonging to Teresita R, Barrera, 609 East Fourteenth St., while it was parked at 600 Water St. Monday, police also reported. Items stolen in the purse include a driver's license, credit cards and a little money. Mrs. Barrera filed her report with the police department at 9:45 p.m. Monday. Mark Beaubien To Address EP Industrial Panel EAGLE PASS-The eight-member Industrial Committee of the Eagle Pass Chamber of Commerce will meet Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Chamber Building and will have as its guest Mark Beaubien of the Texas Industrial Commission in Austin. Beaubien, formerly with the Texas Employment Commission, will make a presentation dealing with the labor market using statistics compiled while he was with the employment commission. Committee chairman Mike Payne said that Maverick County Development Corporation Executive Director Bruce Frazier will also attend the meeting. The committee is comprised of Harold Hausman, Mayor Auturo Flores, William Hollis Fitch, Carlton Kelly, John Mosley, Frank Donaldson, Leon Miller and Dan McDuff. Most have rolled right back out when they got a look at the surroundings. "People are taking a look at Ballarat and are getting out. Once they've seen it, they've seen it," said. Undersheriff James Randolph of Inyo County. Some 500 young people gathered at Ballarat Saturday. but only about 150 remained late Monday, a deputy said. "There's not much out there," he added. Randolph said he is not trying to keep people out. Apparently he doesnt have to. Ballarat, population eight, has one well, ,and barely enough sanitary facilities and food for its residents, the sheriff said. It is located some 200 miles northeast of Los Angeles and 15 miles from Death Valley. Temperatures climb to 120 degrees in the day time. Promoters of the festival, billed as a "religious pilgrimage," could not be reached for comment late Monday. One promoter had estimated three million persons would attend. Mexicans Being Checked at Border In Piedras Negras PIEDRAS, NEGRAS, Mexico—Mexican Border officials are checking all Mexican citizens leaving this border city for proper visas, drivers licenses and automobile registration papers. Informed sources report that the check is not causing any adverse reaction on the Eagle Pass trade but is resulting in traffic snarls on the International Bridge during busy times of the day. The inspection is conducted annually by the Mexican Government to assure that Mexican citizens are complying with local laws. There was no word on how long the inspection will continue. Steam Brings Out Firemen A water line to the hot water heater in a mobile home belonging to Henry Airla Jr. in Trailer Park 7 on Rose Avenue ruptured and caused the hot water heater to steam and to begin to short out early this morning. The Del Rio Fire Department reports firemen were summoned to the scene at 5:50 a.m. with a general alarm which brought 20 volunteers, three on-duty and five off-duty firemen to the trailer park. Promoter Rudy Zamora of Hollywood said he expected three million persons to attend the "religious pilgrimage, a gathering of the people." "The attraction is the unity of mankind,'' Zamora said. Z amora said there would be an Easter sunrise observance with choir music. He said big name rock bands listed in advertising would not perform, but have been invited to attend and intermingle." The event had been scheduled for the Death Valley National Monument, but officials told promoters only persons with confirmed camping reservations would be allowed in, so the Ballarat site was chosen. "There's water here, but not much. It's a one-well town," said Undersheriff James Randolph. "It's already so hot, like 120-degree ground temperature in the day, that the snakes don't come out until it cools off at night." "The nearest hospital is 80 miles away and the only store is just 20 by 20 feet. If they filled the store plumb full to the rafters they couldn't even feed a couple of thousand for four days,"Randolph said. A general membership meeting of the Del Rio Good Neighbor Committee will be held tonight at 7:30 at the Chamber of Commerce offi'ce. On the agenda for discussion will be the promotion of the Carson and Barnes Circus which will be in Del Rio on April 14 and is being sponsored by the committee. The 'big tops' will be set up at the Val Verde County Fairgrounds. Good Neighbor Committee President Harry Carroll said this morning that, "tickets are going fast. Anybody wanting to assure themselves of having seats should get their tickets as soon as possible. Tickets are available at several businesses throughout the city and there will be special discounts for advance sale tickets for both adults and children. However, there will be no discounts at the door on circus day," he said. ' Also to be discussed tonight will be the International Good Neighbor Convention- at Tampico. Mexico, which begins on April 30. A large delegation from Del Rio is expected to travel to Tajnpico for the convention. Del Rio will have a hospitality room set up at the convention to try to persuade people to attend the fall convention be held here in Del Rio. to Several new members will be in attendance at tonight's meeting and Carroll said that "anyone interested, whether they are a member or not, is invited to attend." Maverick Lawmen At SWTJC Class EAGLE PASS-Maverick County Chief Deputy Sheriff Harvey Hill and Eagle Pass city patrolmen Alex Moses and Luis Blanco are attending the Basic Law Enforcement class being conducted at the Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde. Upon competition of the class the three lawmen will be certified under new state statutes which require all law enforcement officers to be , trained in law enforcement in accredited classes. Building Zooms In Eagle Pass EAGLE PASS-City Building Inspector John Morgan reports that the City of Eagle Pass issued building permits in March totaling $1,433,304, the largest one being for a $1.3 million dollar five-story high rise apartment complex for elderly persons.
