Why should we weep when mother’s at re«t
In the bosom of Jesus Supreme,
In the mansion of glory prepared for the
blest.
For death Is no more than a dream,
i Short and shocking was the call
I When you were taken from us all.
But never will we who loved you best
i Forget the day you were laid to rest.
Somewhere there is no parting,
Dark clouds are rolled away;
In that eternal somewhere
Well meet again some day.

Yuma's Sole Eskimo Occupies
His Time Slicing Desert Rock
By W. H. Shippen, Jr.
Star Staff Corr«spondtn*
YUMA, Ariz., July 25.—The lone
Eskimo in this vicinity is only one of
a number of characters whose
whims are shaped by weather and
solitude.
He came here 16 years ago from
Fairbanks, Alaska, and lives on a
Picacho Mountain top about 15
miles from Yuma in temperatures
which range up to 125 degrees at
this season.
The Eskimo has built himself a
home of adobe brick roughly sim
ilar to an igloo, and spends most of
his time slicing weird desert rock
formations with fellow enthusiasts
who also collect rattlesnake skins.
. Rock Makes Transparencies.
The desert rock, when sliced thin
with a power saw on which is fed
a stream of oil, produces transpar
encies that resembles pictures of
bathing beauties, tropical sunsets,
breakers on the beach and almost
any scene that the enthusiasts have
heard of or read about.
Another character in Yuma
makes it a point every day to meet
a luxury Pullman train which
pauses briefly here in the warmth
of midafternoon to pick up ice en
route from Los Angeles to Chicago.
The oddest quality of this citizen is
his attire.
On the hottest days he wears an
overcoat, earmuffs, fur cap and
Arctic boots. When the Pullman
string halts, this humorist begins to
stamp his feet, beat his arms
against his chest and exhale tobacco
smoke which looks like frosty breath.
The travelers are encouraged to
venture from their air-conditioned
quarters, but are met by an air blast
which gets them pretty much burned
up about their reception.
rum-asters juu monotonous.
Incidentally, the trains*"don’t stop
here very long.
The United States Weather Bu
reau forecaster, James H. Gordon,
who retired here recently after 26
years of predicting weather for the
“sunshine capital of the Nation,”
had a rather monotonous job. In
the spring his forecasts were mostly
“fair and warmer,” and in the au
tumn “fair and cooler.” In the sum
mer the less said about the weather
the better. It was "fair” 99 ti per
cent of the time.
The Yuma Chamber of Commerce
refers to the sun here quite cordially
as “Old Sol” and to this part of the
great American desert as the region
"where the sun spends the winter.”
But nobody except the rankest ten
derfoot gets familiar with Old Sol
at this season.
Army physicians of Task Force
Furnace have graduated from the
wartime school that toughened up
troops in training on long hikes with
one canteen of water. Twenty-six
of these men and their top sergeant
perished in the summer of 1943
Funeral Rifes Tomorrow
For Charles C. Fisher, 81
Funeral services for Charles Cur
tis Fisher, 81, who died Wednesday
in his home, 6305 Third street N.W.,
will be held at 1 p.m. tomorrow in
tne residence. ,
Burial will be in

Church Cem- ■
etery, Odenton, '
Md.
Mr. Fisher
had lived here
for nine years.
He was born and
educated in Lis
bon, Md. From
1906 until 1930,
he owned a gen
eral merchan
dise store in
Patuxent, Md.
Mr. Fiiner. From 1930 until
he came to the District, he lived in
Odenton. He was the son of the
late Joshua and Elizabeth Warfield
Fisher.
He was a former member of the
International Order of Red Men
and, until about 15 years ago, he,
was active in politics. Mr. Fisher j
campaigned for the Democratic
nominees for Governor of Maryland'
for 20 years, driving on back roads
off the beaten path and making
campaign speeches.
He is survived by his brother,
George L. Fisher, Baltimore.
Robert Van Lear Wright
Services to Be Held Today
Funeral services for Robert Van
Lear Wright, 60, consulting engineer
with the Interior Department Rec
lamation Bureau, were to be held
at 1 p.m. today at Arlington Na
tional Cemetery.
Mr. Wright, who lived at 3823
Rodman street N.W., died Tuesday
at the Martinsburg (W. Va.) Vet
erans' Hospital after a long illness.
A native of Wheatland, Va., he
attended the University of Mary
land and served as a captain in the
Corps of Engineers in World War I.
He was a power consultant to vari
ous Government agencies before
coming to the Reclamation Bureau
in 1940.
Surviving are his widow, Mrs.
Claudia Jackson Wright; a son,
Robert Van Lear Wright, jr.; a
daughter, Mrs. Harold Hoover, and a
sister, Mrs. Edith Wright Breckin
ridge.
Teachers' Strike Averted
A teachers' strike in Michoacan,
Mexico, was avoided when the
union’s demands were accepted by
the government.
while on such a hike, newsmen
here say.
Four Hours About the Limit.
Tests here convince Army doctors
that four hours of hiking in the
dry heat brings the average young
man to the fringe of endurance
where his mental processes take 'a
sudden drop and he is apt to stag
ger and faint. Body fluids are ex
hausted suddenly and dehydration
proves fatal unless quickly cor
rected.
About this time last year six
motorists whose, car broke down
four miles from Yuma waited for
help an hour or so too long. They
became too weak to walk and were
found dead of thirst the following
day. A housewife who went for a
walk from her home near Dome.
Ariz., was found dead 12 hours after
she was last seen.
Old-timers motoring in this area
would no more venture out without
adequate water than would a Mon
tana farmer start for his barn in
a blizzard without a definite plan
to enable him to retrace his steps.
California Jails Millionaire.
The proximity of the California
border results in some strange situ
ations at Yuma, where marriage
and divorce are a profitable busi
ness. Too, in the days of the de
pression, California’s ban against
invading Okies without the neces
sary $50 netted the wealthiest cit
izen of this community.
The citizen was a gold prospector
who found two million-dollar mines
but had lost only one fortune when
the police stopped him at the bor
der. He was no dude when it came
:o dressing and no slouch in a con
/ersational way. The Arizonian
stood on his constitutional rights
is a free American and demanded
;o know if he was entering Bulgaria
jr some place. He landed in jail
with enough money in the bank to
jail out the whole California police
The produce industry here makes
md breaks fortunes almost as
juickly as gold mining.
Workers Make Up to $75 a Day.
Skilled workers in the packing
sheds who operate under extreme
sressure for brief seasons, make up
;c $75 a day if they can stand the
pace.
The country when irrigated pro
luces great quantities of lettuce,
cantaloupes, alfalfa, honey dew
nelons and citrus fruit.
Brokers handling high priority
sonsignments on the refrigerated
srains moving East play the tele
type somewhat like big-time racing
jamblers.
They may catch the market, or
niss it by a matter of hours, in
switching cargoes to Washington,
yew York or Chicago.
High wages paid by the packers
ire varied by “stoop” labor that
liters across the Mexican border
vhen crops are ripening.
Housewives Complain.
The workers, called “stoops” be
sause they are smaller than most
Westerners and don’t have to bend
so far to pick cantaloupes or lettuce
leads, get around 40 or 50 cents
in hour.
In this produce center, however,
lousewives complain that a head
>f lettuce costs some 10 cents more
,han the retail price in New York
md they can search the market in
fain for a honey dew melon in
season.
In addition, Florida citrus Juice
n cans is easier to find than the
•ipe fruit grown within sight and
;asy reach of the consumer.
