Lifting his hand in salute, still showing his teeth, he reined his pinto around and raced back up the slope. Verdugo had got his knife iback and held onto his pride, Lane thought. At least no one had seen him begging Lane for the weapon. Lane rode on down the draw, pushing ahead of him the longhorns that had stopped to tongue bunches of grass.

Workers live in five haphazard litllc commUnllies on the farm, moslly in four - room homes of wood or peeling stucco owned by the government. About 10 per cent live in state-owned apartment houses.

There are noj churches, < An Aqua Volga, resembling a 1955 Ford, rolled down the asphalt main street.' But just outside 'Jie village, small donkey carts carried dusty men over dusty roads. Women with smiling Oriental faces brought quart tins to the shops for their daily supply of milk. The state owns the farm and pays the workers' wages. The farm mcts the production quotas set by the stale and sells any surplus to the state. (Each farmer' has three quarters of an acre which the stale lets him . culttbatc as ht pleases.
