   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                Living on By Dick West WASHINGTON _ While sojourning reeently In Texas, much of which appears incapable of sustaining human life, I found the unlives sub- sisting on a strange and wondrous plant culled the jalupeno. To the untrained eye, jalapenos look like ordinary green peppers. But they ap parenlly have qualities somewhat comparable to man mi. When one dines at Dalrj Queen In Big Springs, Texas as I did on a memorable even ing, one dines jalapeno- burgers. liean Dip When one grazes among the 'canapes at a Texas cucktai party, one ladens one's tortilla chips with jalapeno bean dip.

Suffice to say that I don' recall eating anything in Texas, that wasn't made will; jalapenos. Jalapenus are li Texas as rice is to the Chinese, potatoes to the Irish and garlic to the French. The name is Spanish and pronounced hollcr-pain-oh. In the idiomatic translation, In word means "to holler in intensive pain." Which is what one docs the first time one lakes a bite of jalapeno. I asked a native how this all- purpose nutriment came to be so bountiful. He said there were several different ac- counts, including the follow- ing: "Kio dc Chili" It seems that one of the earl, Spanish explorers PFC Juan Caliente led an expedition across the region in search o the legendary ''Rio de Somewhere in the area, ac cording to the legend, ther was a river in which chi! flowed like water.

Sept. 6, 1974 Fascist-Racist Plot Suspected Against Priest HOME (UPI) Italian prosecutors and police are investigating a pos- sible plot by Italian neofasclsts and Hhodeslan white supremacists to murder a Polish missionary based near the Zambia-Hhodestan border, Italian newspapers reported Tuesday. Reports in Rome's II Mes- saggero and other papers said two package bombs were mailed from Italy to the mis- sion post of Father Stuiiislao Nowiskl at Kabwo, Zambia. Uoth bombs exploded before they reached the missionary, one injuring four persons last Feb. 7 and the other killing a postal employe on Feb. 12, the reports said. The newspapers said the public prosecutors of Rome and Brescia were working with interpol and Zambia police to determine whether Italian neofascisl extremists might have sent the bombs in exchange for receiving weapons from a Rhodesian racist group. ON THIS DATE in 1914, the first battle of the Marne began in World war I.
