LETTERS
FROM
OUR
READERS
Mojave
Memories
...
To
the
Editor:
Your recent stories
on the
Mojave Desert were most enjoyable.
We
did
so
hope
to go
back
to
that country thiswinter—to Pinto Basin where
the
humming-birds will practically
let you pet
them.
The
Basin
was so
warm
and
quiet. Please nevertell
me
that someone
has
settled there.JESSIE WIRTHarrisonville,

Old
Bottles
...
To
the
Editor:
We
read with great
joy
Adele Reed's article
on
collecting
old bot-
tles
(Feb.
DESERT).
We are new at
thishobby,
but no
other pastime
has
given
us
as much enjoyment.As with
all
hobbies, however, there
are
always some people
who
tend
to
spoil
the
fun.
A
case
in
point
is the
recent
use of
bulldozers
in
yirginia City
to
unearth
bot-
tles.
While this simplifies matters,
it
doescut-down
on the
number
of
bottles thatcould
be
found
in
this area
by
future
col-
lectors.The same sort
of
thing
has
happened
to
the rockhound hobby.
If it
keeps
up,
soonthere will
be
many places marked
"off
limits"
to the
bottle hunter.PAULINE

To
the
Editor:
Why
must
DESERT
takesuch
an
interest
in
politics
and the
moneyand land-grabbing habits
of
most people?Can't
you
just write about interesting areasto visit,
and
leave
the
land-grabbing realestate agencies
out of it? You say you
lovethe desert. Does that mean
you
want
to
see
it
irrigated
so
that more people
can
liveout there? Chunk
by
chunk,
I've
seen moreand more
of the
Southwest become
a
hous-ing development.On page
15 of
your November issue
is a
thrilling picture
of
"High Desert Country"complete with Joshua trees.
For a
minuteI thought
the
article would
be
entitled"Let's Preserve
our
Joshua Trees."
But, no
it
was
"Your Personal Slice
of the
PublicDomain."
In
other words "Let's Exploitthe Desert."
You, for one,
should
be
preaching conservation
of our
deserts.R.

Varmint Callers
...
To
the
Editor:
We
read with dismay yourFebruary report
on the
pseudo-sportsmen("Varmint Callers")
who
lure unsuspectingpredators
to
their death with
an
artificialdistress call.If these people must hunt predators,
let
them
do so in a
fair manner: that
is
hand-to-hand.We practically hand-feed
a
family
of
desert foxes
in a
certain locale.
If
ever
the
Varmint Callers invade this territory, theywill
be
greeted with some well-aimed lead.JOHN
