THE DESERT MAGAZINE
 
DESERT
Glade-
• Typical
of
men
the
desert breeds
is
Dad Fairbanks, known
to
everyone
who
knows Death Valley
and the
Mojave.
His
experiences with early
day
Indians
and
prospectors
and his
pioneering days
at
Shoshone will
he
related
by
WilliamCaruthers
in
Desert Magazine soon.Charles Kelly's hobby
of
hunting
old
inscriptions
in the
Southwest
has led him
into some fascinating
and
remote corners.In
an
early issue,
he
will tell DesertMagazine readers about some
of the
oldest
and
most interesting ones
he has
discovered
in
Wyoming, Idaho, Utah,Nevada,
New
Mexico
and
Arizona.• Color
of
the
desert
is one of its
mostsubtle, baffling qualities.
But
there
is
a
scientific
explanation
of
it—and
the
more
we
know about
the
luminous blue
sha-
dows,
the
rosy hazes, brilliant
red and
orange skies,
the
more
we
will appre-ciate
the
unique color harmonies
of the
Southwest. Jerry Laudermilk
has
madedrawings especially
to
illustrate
his
forth-coming story
on the
subject.• Margaret Stone,
who has
written thismonth's story about
the
Pahute Indiansof Nevada,
is one of the
best knownwhite
women
among
the
Southwest
tribes.
She has
lived among them
as
friend
and
adviser.
She has
been withthem
in
their triumphs
and
their trage-
dies;
she has
known them
in
their dailylives
and
their ceremonial rites. Later
she
will make Desert readers better acquainted with
the
Papago Indians
of
Arizonaand
the
Laguna tribe
of New
Mexico.• Last July, Desert published
a
storywhich aroused more comment than nearlyany other
in
five years
of
publication—"Beauty
is not in
faces.
But in the
heartsof
men."
Phil
K.
Stephens, author-engineer, wrote this
as the
first
of a
trilogy.
The
second, depicting
the
Courage
of the
Desert, will appearshortly;
and the
third. Kindness
of the
Desert,
is in
preparation.
Tom
Terris, noted radio vagabondadventurer, will
be
introduced
for the
first time
to
Desert readers, when
his
prize story,
"The
Canyon
of
Death"
is
published this spring. Illustrations weredrawn
by the
Navajo artist CharlesKeetsie Shirley.
THIS MONTH'SCOVER PHOTO . . .
One
of the
most dramatic
and
effectiveof desert Easter services
has
been heldin Death Valley
and has
been nationallybroadcast.
The
first sunrise service
was
held
in 1929 by the
late
H. W.
Eich-baum, builder
and
owner
of
Stove PipeWells hotel.No other service
was
held until
1934,
the year after Death Valley nationalmonument
was
established.
Until lastyear, thev were conducted annually
by
a
CCC chaplain with
a
choir
of CCC
boysand instrumental music.
The
park serv-ice
was
obliged
to
discontinue
the
serv-ices last year upon removal
of the CCC.
No service will
be
held this Easter.
