The awakening of old volcanoes that have apparently been asleep for some time is a relatively common occurrence. However, the flaring up, from out of nowhere, of a brand new cone of fire is indeed an unusual phenome non, and in February 1943, the news of the sudden and unexpected ap pearance of a volcano in an erst while tranquil Mexican stirred and interested of the whole continent. The fact that the smoke was ac companied by a low rumbling under the ground added to the terror of poor Dionisio who fled with his ox and his small son, running the two miles to the nearest village. World’s Newest Volcano Appears In Forraer Tranquil Mexican Cornfield cornfield, the readers volcano of undoubtedly Paricutin “the baby the Western world” is connected geologically and geograph ically with the chain of mountains of volcanic activity called the Belt of Fire of the Pacific. It is the latest manifestation oi volcanicity in this area and definitely a part of the arc of volcanoes ex tending along the Pacific’s shores from the Andes to Alaska, the Aleu tians, Kamchatka, Japan, and Java.” “Of all this, however, the Mexican peasant Dionisio Pulido had no idea as, plowing his land, in the valley of Cuyizirio, province of Michoacan, one good morning in February 1943, he came across a small opening in the ground from which emerged a spiral of smoke. By that night the entire village knew about the strange happenings, not only through Dionisio, but be cause they too had seen from afar a luminous column of smoke, they too had heard the thunder of explo sions.

But as they moved out perforce, tourists and scientists traveled ward Paricutin, to see the new cano from a respectful distance. When night fell they joined the tourists in admiring the incandescent cone from which red-hot lava flows among a firing of volcanic fireworks. Up to now, the eruption of the volcano has brought both misery and fortune to the inhabitants of Micho acan. Those whose homes it has ruined, whose fields it has buried in ashes, whose clear skies it has dark ened with its clouds and vapors, curse Paricutin the evil-maker.
