DESERT
Next scory by Randall Henderson willbe about Ed. Williams of Blythe, Cali-fornia, who since 1912 has handled manytough problems for his neighbors in PaloVerde valley, from his million-dollar er-rand to Washington through the fightfor an equitable division of irrigationwater from the Colorado river.New name among DESERT'S writersis that of Ken Stott Jr., curator of mam-
mals,
Zoological Society of San Diego,whose initial story will be an account ofnight collecting of desert reptiles.• In September, 1944, issue of DES-ERT, Hope Gilbert wrote about the re-markable Swiss-American who did pio-neer archeological work in the New Mex-ican area later named in his honor—Bandelier national monument. Shortly,DESERT will present the story of themonument
itself,
as told by J. W. Hen-dron, of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, whofor the past ten years has spent much timein research at the monument. He says, "Iam prejudiced about Frijoles (name ofcanyon in the monument)—I know of noother place equally as interesting. Mostvisitors thoroughly enjoy themselves andwill especially do so this season sinceFrijoles Canyon lodge opened aboutMay 1."
