A long motor boat ride provided another thrill. A real Apache Indian was at the wheel. Thence we went on to Phoenix over a beautiful scenic drive. We are now located in a trim three- room cottage "at Desert Mission, Sunny Slope, a suburb of Phoenix, eight miles from the heart of the city and up out of the irrigation district. Mission Only 10 Years Old. Do not think of this as some ancient Spanish Mission in which one walks through cloisters and climbs a weather-beaten tower. Desert Mission is only ten years old, all new cottages, church, and a Wrigley recreational building where every Friday night we see the test movies. This building is also used as a social center and S. S. classes meet there. Next week an all-state dinner will be served there by the Aid. The Rev. Mr. Hillhouse was sent here by the Presbyterian church, and he has developed Sunny Slope into a beautiful place. We meet many fine people, and it is hard to find time to write or read, for we congregate in groups and talk in the beautiful Arizona sunshine, or just gaze at the wonderful mountains, which seem so close. , , „ We have made many drives, an revealing sights new to us. How little most of us know of our great country. We shall regret to leave here when the time comes— just as we have regretted to part| with th« other places where we have stayed in these two winters.
