RETURN TO RAMOS by Leo Cardenas, Del Rio-born author, is a compelling story which takes us into East Texas, where we make the acquaintance of a spirited Chicano family. When Juan Jose Ramos and his family return home to Ramos after picking cotton in West Texas, they find their teen-aged daughter Chita leading a school boycott, protesting the manner in which their baseball sweetheart is chosen -- the students want to elect their own , sweetheart, rather than have the teachers choose their favorite. At first Juan Jose argues that the children are wrong....because the students are protesting, the Anglos are denying work to their parents. But gradually Chita's militant activities draw the parents into participating in the boycott. At a meeting of the school board and parents, we are afforded some intimate glimpses into the dignity and problems of migrant workers. Leo Cardenas was bom in Del Rio, attended San Felipe High School (where he started the school newspaper and was senior class president), and graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Jpumalism degree. He began his career with the Del Rio News-Herald and was later assistant city editor of the San Antonio Express. He is now employed in the media division of the Community Relations Service of the federal government in Dallas. NAOMI BREWER n» Ut ttr (ritttr S»r*, ..
