Lively Saga of
EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the first
in a series of articles about the au-
thor's summer adventures at an
archaeological dig in New Mexico.
Wide-eyed and expectant I
pressed my grimy face to the
train window and looked out on
Gallup, New Mexico. At last this
was IT. Fifty or so other college
students and I were about to be
turned loose on some Pueblo ru-
ins at a southwestern research
The train station was aswarm
with Indians, cowboys and other
assorted characters. Leaping out
of the train joyously, I snapped a
few pictures. How quaint, I
thought, how picturesque, how
friendly these Indians are. But I
soon found out that their hands
were not outstretched in pure
friendship. I threw a handful of
change at them and was almost
trampled in their wild scramble.
I went into the local hostelry
where we were to meet at 1:00,
dressed to go out to camp. After
changing my clothes, I sat down
to wait for the rest of our crew.
A tall casual looking fellow
slouched past me and leaned a-
gainst the wall, cigarette dangling
precariously from his upper lip.
Besides a light sombrero with
softly rolled brim, a gold belt

A tall blonde in dungarees roll-

usual formalities of names, home
towns, schools, etc., she sat down
next to me. A pair of stalwart
characters with suntanned faces,
windblown hair and wild blood-
shot eyes dragged in. One sport-

duffle bags, picks, canteens,
hatchets and other field equip-
ment and joined the rest of the
A half dozen or so other people
lounged in and before we knew it
it was 1:00, the Zero Hour. There
we waited, the girls warming the
chairs, the fellows holding up the
opposite wall. We wondered what
would come next, and it did.
He was short and attired in a
well-worn pair of boots, levis, and
shirt. Pulled low over his forehead
was a well-worn, sinister-looking
black sombrero. From under bushy
eyebrows, meeting over his nose,
a pair of flashing blue eyes calmly
surveyed us. Long brown hair
streamed out from under his hat
and curled over his collar. To
complete the general effect he had
a tremendous handlebar mus-
tache, dangerously curled.
I said to the blond, "The local
characters in this place just KILL
Buffalo Bill, the man with the
mustache, the local character who
turned out to be our lab instructor
and a graduate of one of our
country's institutions of higher
learning, checked everyone in and
pushed us out to the parking lot.
Outside a two and one-half ton
truck, fondly named Lulybelle,
and a weapons carrier awaited us.
We stowed our gear (Navy term-
inology) and piled in on top.
Buffalo Bill climbed into the
cab, gripped the wheel firmly, and
we lurched out of town. Leaving
Gallup behind, we started out on
a 96-mile trek across the wilds
of northwestern New Mexico to-
wards the camp that was to be
our home for the next six weeks.
