Daniel Marin, M.Sp.S., a Catholic missionary stationed at Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico, recently drove his 1929 Model A Ford sedan from Saltillo to Eagle Pass, 300 miles, to trade it in on another second-hand car for his missions. The Model A was manufactured in 1929, the same year Father Daniel was born. The car -was already second-hand and old when it was put into the service of the Saltillo missions, serving such missions as San Juan La Lavaqueria, Lucio Blanco, Torrescillas, Castillo, among the 100 missions attached to the parish. Now old and weary, the Model A is retired from active duty and perhaps will be bought by a devotee of antique cars and put out into dignified pastures. - ACROSS 1 Japanese emperor 7 Royal seat 13 Liturgical vestments 14 Cured 15 Against (prefix) 16 Vegetable 17 Seaweed 18 Merry 20 the Terrible 21 Existed 22 Royal Majesty 23 511 (Roman) 24 Digraph 25 Elevator cage 27 Word of • negation 30 Frozen covering 34 Greek moon goddess 36 Juicy fruit 37 German emperor 38 Conciliatory bribe 39 Conger 41 Medical title 42 Auricle 44 Elected officials (colL) 46 Dower property 49 Lottery prize 51 Golf mound 52 Zone, in a way 53 Makes amends for 55 Beard trimmed to a point 57 Printing mistakes 58 Open a royal letter 59 Inferior 60 English novelist (1713-1768) DOWN Indian 7 Pronoun 8 Biddy 9 Etymon 10 Green garnets 11 Russian river 12 Paradise 19 Joan of —— 22 Stove or furnace 23 Fond hopes 24 Associate Chartered Accountants (ab.) 26 Request 28 Individual 29 Thrice (comb, form) 1 Large parrot 2 City in Italy 3 Potentates 4 Deeds (Latin) 30 Possessive 5 German . pronoun article 31 Dove sound 6 Siouan 32 Powerful potentates 33 American writer 35 Cover '40 Prevarication 43 Coins of India 45 Ethiopian ruler 46 Turn aside through fear 47 City in New York 48 Pillar of stone 49 Chinese money of account 50 Raison d'— 51 Former Russian emperor 52 Foundation 54 Summer (Fr.) 56 Canadian province (ab.)
