ATWOOD The New Mexican Staff Somewhere west of Santa Fe two peace pilgrims are continuing their journey today towards Moscow The two call their pilgrim age A Walk of the Pilgrimage for Life and their mission is to talk to people along the way about nuclear arms and the environment Dale James Outhouse 26 and Tony Manolakis 32 left Point Conception March l and walked down Cerrillos Road into Santa Fe Thursday The two were joined in Tuscon by Barbara Hirshkowitz who plans to walk as far as Houston before joining another peace walk Their route will take them through the southern states then up the East Coast to Washington After a two month break the group will continue their walk in Europe The trio says their message is nonpolitical and focuses on the personal and spiritual is sues of nuclear arms By making our own lives peaceful through walking it brings the world that much closer to Hirsh kowitz said So far the thousandmile journey has been peaceful al though spring winds in New Mexico have occasionally played havoc with their 22 mileaday goal On the whole the three have been very well received in the state especial ly on Indian pueblos they say At Laguna Pueblo one fam ily gave them a written peace message lunch and an inlaid shell medallion At Santo Domingo a man gave them a loaf of bread baked by his wife In Grants the group lent their support to a housewife involved in the peace move ment who is trying to convince her husband to get out of the uranium industry Dressed in running shoes and Tshirts sporting bandan nas bright sunburns and deep tans the three walk from one community to the next and stay at the homes of local peace movement supporters Their route Will take them to Las Vegas early this week then on to Santa Rosa and Clovis While two walk one drives a vintage VW support van The walkers see a lot of trash on the roadside and to them it is a sad reminder of the lack of respect for the earth Outhouse says Manolakis originally from Greece left a job in the health food business to embark on the 20month year trek In the beginning you kind of question what youre But the simple life of The New MexicanySyiiney Brink Tony Manolakis left and Dale Outhouse on the road daily walking has been addict ing he says You feel at home wherever you are I have so many more friends than I did Outhouse was a political sci ence student in Santa Cruz Calif in 1980 when he first participated in a peace walk The movement impressed him so that he has been walk ing ever since The walkers have personal ly financed part of the jour ney the rest is supported by donations from individuals and peace groups Outhouse plans to muster about a dozen walkers for the European journey which win start in Dublin Ireland and end in Moscow Others have warned him he might be used as a propaganda tool in the Soviet Union but he is determined to take his people topeople campaign as far as he can We see there are very few alternatives that we as indi viduals can do and this is something we feel very strongly about we can Ximenes Aramony receive Highlands degrees Albuquerque businessman Vincente T Ximenes and nation al United Way President Wil liam Aramony got
