"M ' 0 Living on ‘Holler-Poin’ D/ef fir nr By Bick West WASHINGTON (tipi) _ While sojourning recently in I exits, much of which appears incapable of sustaining human life, I found the natives sub slat InK on a strange and wondrous plant called the jalapeno. To the untrained eye. jalapenos look like ordinary green peppers But they apparently have qualities somewhat comparable to manna When one dines at the Dairy Queen in Big Springs, Texas, as I did on a memorable evening, one dines on jalapeno* burgers Bean Dip When one graces among the canapes at a Texas cocktail party, one ladens one s tortilla chips with jalupeno bean dip. The native diet also includes jalapeno corn bread, jalapeno relish, jalapeno cheese, jalapeno . . well, there’s no need to recite the entire inventory. Suffice to say that I don’t recall eating anything iii Texas that wasn't made with jalapenos Jalapenos are to Texas as rice is to the Chinese, potatoes to the Irish and garlic to the French. The name is Spanish and is pronounced holler-pain-oh. In the idiomatic translation, the word means “to holler ‘oh!’ in intensive pain.’ Which is what one does the first time one takes a bite of jalapeno. I asked a native how this allpurpose nutriment came to be so bountiful. He said there were several different accounts. including the following: “Rio de Chili” It seems that one of the early Spanish explorers PFC Juan Caliente led an expedition across the region in search of the legendary- “Rio de Chili”. Somewhere in the area. according to the legend, there was a river in which chili flowed like water WIN AT I BRIDGE By Oswald k Janies Jacoby South started to make the automatic play of dummy’s queen of spades at trick one. Then he stopped, saw that he just might need an extra entry to dummy and won in his own hand It was well that he did. As it was. dummy's entries lasted just long enough to bring the slam home South drew trumps with three leads arid continued with the ace and five of clubs.

Otherwise, he would not have wasted all that time and money looking for it But at tin- time it certainly/ sounded as plausible as Ponce de Leon's “fountain of youth" and Coronado’s seven cities of gold (Those early Spanish explorer* were frightfully gullible.) Iii any event, Caliente carried in his saddlebags several pecks of jalapeno seeds, which he intended to use iii trading with the Indians But as he rode along, ho realized that other people would someday be passing that way and would in* in need of sustenance And so he scattered the seeds upon the ground, thut they might take root and proliferate Historians tend to doubt this tale They insist the jalapeno was spread by bird droppings But in the annals of Texas Dick Wait folklore, Juan Caliente will always lie revered by his nickname — Johnny Popporseed The Cedar Rapids Gazette: FrL, Sept. 8. 1*74 Fascist-Rocist Plot Suspected Against Priest ROME (UPI) - Italian prosecutors and Zambian police are investigating a possible plot by Italian nonfascists and Rhodesian white supremacists to murder a Polish missionary based near the Zambia-Khodesian border, Italian newspapers reported Tuesday.
