Peru Literally hun dreds of der r i c It s li i v e pierced the horizon above the sand y or clay cliffs al most holly devoid of vege tation due to a rid ness In some cases the derricks are situated at the EARL HALL very edge of the beach In others they are perched in precarious position atop a sheer cliff Occa sionally as we cut along through the water we have seen trucks bumping along a coastal highway with no sign of railroad transpor tation At about noon we put in at thc harbor of Talara Peru where a lighter approached with half dozen heading for Val paraiso Chile As we waited we were
