Carrizozo Outlook 2/3/1934 English III free verse assignment William Compton wrote:

The Malpais
That vast ocean of rock
Whose metallic somberness
Defies all who near it
What untold secrets does it hold?
Those jagged crevices and mounds,
Which are so roughly hewn
By wind, rain, and snow
How? Why? And when did
Its presence permeates this district?
As history says, probably by some
Extinct Volcano, probably struggling
To rise again and scour the
Land with its black venom.

The Malpais;
 A no man’s land.
The refuge for robbers.
And thieves, a wonderful.
Place for stills and hide-outs.
A home for rattlesnakes.
A wonderful goat country.

But even this unconquerable
Supply of rock has been brushed
Aside by man,
And now a road traverses it.

Miss Julia Penfield teacher at San Patricio resigned, moving to Alamogordo. Oscura’s School teacher was Mrs. Olive Smithson.

Carrizozo Outlook 11/8/1935 mentions several rural schools: Lincoln, San Patricio, Ruidoso, Picacho, Encinoso, White Oaks, Bogle, Ramon, Angus, Jicarilla, Mon Jeau, Oscura aka Oscuro, Ancho, Baca Canyon, Escondida, Fort Stanton, Lon, Arabela, Asperos (also spelled Asperus), Glencoe, Macho, Erwin.

Carrizozo Outlook 11/15/1935 Student murdered in Tinnie, N. M. Hollis aged 18, killed his aunt and uncle Mr. and Mrs. Willard in their home including their son, George Willard with a hatchet. The boys’ body was decapitated and horribly mutilated. 

Intermission: The importance of the Southern Pacific RR, the Carrizozo school, churches and social clubs, had become the dominating forces in Lincoln County by 1935. Two classes existed, as they persist today. They were the land owners, businessmen, judges, and old money. Those people who excelled in school also joined the Order of Eastern Star, Women’s Club, Rainbow Girls, Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias-although declining in influence, and Lodges like Eastern Star, and The Carrizozo Lodge. The other class were the Mexican community who lived “across the tracks” and laborers of all races. Women might be included in a special class. They lost their identity after marriage becoming Mrs. John Doe, rather than Mrs. Lora Jean Thompson as an example.

It is said that ninety percent of the wealth today is controlled by only one percent of Americans. That is not true. Actually that 1% owns or controls everything-100%. The vast majority of people own nothing, because they are in debt. They die owing a home mortgage, a stack of credit card bills at obscene interest rates, college loans, and medical bills. Those bills are owned by that 1%. This situation was inevitable being part of the evolution of the elite over the classless.

Over the years, wealth and position in Lincoln County has passed from the early settlers, many of whom brought wealth from the East, establishing ranches, mining properties and businesses. Over the past hundred years, that wealth and most importantly, social position, has passed down to their descendants. However, that wealth and social position tends to dissipate over time due to marriages, deaths, and descendants. Wealth is passed to the children, ever being diluted. The more children a family has, the quicker the wealth is diluted. Furthermore, children do not hold the same values as their forefathers. The Duggar family is an example. They were a respected and wealthy family. The parents eventually passed away, leaving the ranch to the boys. But the boys had no desire or an inclination to operate the ranch. The boys went separate ways, squandering the wealth or at least consuming it. That family’s wealth and position is now extinguished in Lincoln County. A few other families have faired better with their hand-me-down-wealth. But that free ticket will eventually elapse.

On another subject, in the spring of 1964 a car load of giddy girls from Carrizozo traveled to Capitan to attend a dance. I recall a 1925 newspaper snip: Capitan high school girls are quoted very highly on the marriage. Market. It bespeaks praise for our home economics courses. Lula Hightower was the latest of our number to succumb. The faculty and school every wish for future happiness.”
The dance was rocking until a group of Capitan girls escorted the Carrizozo girls outside the dance hall. They were not friendly. Pushing and posturing ensued. “Stay away from our boys, the Capitan girls warned. The Carrizozo girls jumped into the old Mercury. Departing, they were thankful they still had all their hair. So it was, and so it is. CB

Carrizozo Outlook 11/20/1936 School was not a favorite topic this year-or last year. But the Senior class had a   Carrizozo Queen Contest. Alemeda Bowlin 772 votes. Evelyn Ellison 600, Lois Smith 482, Ruth Barnett 400. They also had a boxing match and a Kissing booth. Be mindful that the Great Depression of 1929-1939 was in high gear. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was at work in Lincoln County. Book drives were held to give to the CCC camps. They operated from 1933 to 1942 for unmarried men from relief families as part of the New Deal.

Carrizozo Outlook 1/1/1937 We begin this year with a note about a relative. Albert Wood opened a grocery store in Oscura (Oscuro). Mrs. Wood is the new postmistress. Mrs. Olive Smithson is the teacher at the Oscura School. The school had a Christmas program for the public.

In 1940 the Oscuro precinct 15, was enumerated as Oscura but was officially listed as Oscuro. Only 41 people lived in Oscuro in 1940. By 1960 only a single building existed which sold alcohol.

Carrizozo Outlook 6/17/1938 Jane Elizabeth Spencer, the granddaughter of the late governor of NM, W. C. McDonald, was married to Dr. James Paul Turner. The Bar W Ranch belonged to T. A. Spencer. The wedding was attended by select people as far away as Hawaii and Kansas. The write up in the newspaper was a full column. Class means everything even in our so-called classless society. The marriage of a Juan Silva to a Jane Smith would get but one sentence of newspaper space. (By the time this compiler was in grade school, two doctors operated the hospital at Carrizozo, Dr. Turner and Dr. Spencer. Dr. Turner was a somewhat jolly man. He had a short but loud laugh. Any patient who visited him was assured of getting a shot of penicillin regardless of their complaint. Dr. Spencer was strictly clinical without a cheerful bone in his body. He offered out blunt, medical honestly. Dr. James P. Turner was married to a Corrine or Corine Brasfield in Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas in 1930. She was born in Arkansas, Turner was born in Illinois. His occupation was RR Physician. The fate of Corrine is unknown, but she may have been Corrine or Corine Brasfield born 9/2/1906 and dying in Ca. on 10/5/1997 as Corine Brasfield Bierbaum. Tragedy would later strike Dr. Turner’s family which will be revealed later in this collection. See entry 2/3/1961 below. James Paul Turner had a sister Augusta Turner who married I. L. Spratt. She was born in 1907 in Arkansas. James Paul Truman was also born in Arkansas.  James Paul Truman’s father was Frank T. Turner, a Baptist minister. His mother was Sallie Turner. His mother was Sallie or Sarah Truman.

Carrizozo Outlook 9/23/1938 Six post graduates are now enrolled in HS. I still do not understand what entails going to school as a post graduate. Perhaps they could not afford college. Also, the school begins sanctioned hazing of freshmen by the seniors.

Carrizozo Outlook 2/17/1939 The Carrizozo boys poll for Ideal Girl: “The ideal girl is a good sport and honest. She should not be a gold digger; neither should she swear, tell obscene jokes, drink, smoke, pet, or use too much cosmetics. (Girls) Running after boys, being boisterous, sarcastic, or acting bored soon lose their appeal to the opposite sex. A girl should never be ashamed to introduce her friends to her parents and invite them to her home.”

Carrizozo School notes: In 1950 the School Board ruled all students would attend the Carrizozo Schools instead of the split between St. Rita and Carrizozo. The class of 1950 had 45 students at the beginning of the school year. Gradually the girls married Red Canyon soldiers, or dropped out. The class finished with a graduating class of 25 students. Years later a superintendent burned all the pictures of former students that hung in the old auditorium. That was a ruthless disregard of history.

Lincoln County News 5/15/1953 St. Rita Graduation. (Over time that school has been called St. Rita, Saint Rita, and Santa Rita. I do not understand the Santa Rita designation. Perhaps it was just slang. It was in the 1950’s that I saw a Nun walking behind our house with her Rosary beads. She appeared to pray as she walked. A few days later I played on the tracks behind my house and found the Rosary beads. I never went across the tracks to the “Mexican” side but I did this time. I met a young Mexican about my age and asked him if he could return the beads to the Nun. A few days later, the boy came to my house and told me the Nun was very happy to have the beads returned.  Sometimes we do something nice that stays with us forever.)

Zozo ribbons awarded to Greg Pino, Billy Hicks, others Jessie Nowell, Lake Hite, Patrick Aguilar, Bobby Stearns, Gene Hite, Robert Ortiz, Fred Vega, Larry Ortiz, Robert Firman, Rodger Pope. The event died out after a few years, unfortunate. (Note: It was a practice for the early newspaper to print those admitted to the hospital in Carrizozo. That list has some genealogical value, but I have avoided it. Left field, Readers may have observed that I leave off the comma after a surname and “Jr.” That is because I may use the comma to separate names for a future database. That extra comma gives a false separation between names. Query, as I peruse the columns, I noticed an absence of mentioning of Dr. Turner’s children, who being of a wealthy family and later graduating from such esteemed universities as North Carolina, North Western, and Duke, were obviously talented and superior students. It occurred to me that they were sent to the Roswell School where better opportunity existed. School ranking of the states has had NM ranked 50th for many years. They are now 49th.  Only Nevada is worse. Those coming out of HS without a silver platter serving wealth and social position and with no college degree would be at a life-long disadvantage.)
