THE DESERT MAGAZINE
 
DESERT
• Claire Meyer Proctor,
who
took
the
photograph
of the
Night-BloomingCereus
for
this month's cover, shares
her
hobby
of
"knowing
and
living with
the
Southwest" with
her
husband,
R. C.
Proctor, Phoenix dentist. Their majorproject
is to
make
a
photographic surveyof
the
entire state
of
Arizona. They havebuilt
a
picturesque pueblo style home
in
Phoenix
and
have turned
the
groundsinto
a
typical desert.
Sgt.
George
Bradt,
who
tells DESERTreaders this month about
his
unique
ex-
perience
in
training
a
hawk, will soondescribe some
of the
desert rodentswhich
he has
studied
and
photographed.• Congratulations
to
Lieut. HulbertBurroughs, former DESERT writer,
who
recently
was
commissioned
in the
West-ern
war
zone.
A
late issue
of the Air
Force Magazine carried
one of his ar-
ticles.Hulbert enlisted
in the
army
in
January,
1942, and has
been doing
spe-
cial photographic work, based
in the
Hawaiian Islands.
Cpl.
Rand Henderson,
who
left
DES-
ERT staff
to
enlist
in the U. S.
marinecorps,
is now
attached
to the
AmphibianTank Battalion, Oceanside, California.He
has
been doing advanced work
in the
signal battalion
of the
radio division.His training
was
received
in
Utah,
at
Treasure Island
and San
Diego.Last month Marshal South told aboutthe beginnings
of
their printing press,but
he did not
tell about
one of the "pub-
lishing" phases
of the
South familywhich
we
have just discovered.
In
limit-ed number they
are
turning
out
beauti-fully designed
and
executed desert cards,hand-blocked
and
hand-painted water-color.
The
imprint bears this legend,"Printed
by
hand-press
in the
desert
by
Marshal, Tanya, Rider, Rudyard
and
Victoria South."
One of
these days, whenthey
are
again established
in a
permanentdesert home, they probably will produceenough
of
these cards
for all
those desertfriends
who
want them
as
souvenirs
orgifts.
WHEN YOU MOVE . . .
We want
our
DESERT readers
to re-
ceive every issue
of
their magazine.
But
we cannot give them this assurance
if we
are
not
notified
of a
change
of
addressby
the
fifth
of the
month. Paper restric-tions prevent
our
supplying duplicate
is-
sues
to
those
who
have failed
to let us
know their
new
address before DESERTis mailed each month.
If you are
goingto move
and
your address
is
uncertain,please
ask us to
HOLD your copies
for
you until
you can
furnish
an
address.We'll
be
glad
to
cooperate
in
every
way
possible—but henceforth
we
shall
be un-
able
to
supply extra copies when
we
havenot received proper notice
by the
fifthof
the
month.
