  • It's A Caballito.... But Not A Horse

  • It's hard to tell which is more enchanted with his new friend. Héctor Montoya Montero, employed as an archeologist by the government of his native Puerto Rico, came to Mexico for an introduction to the problems of Mexican archeology, and participated as a student in the summer 1958 training with the MCC group which did the first digging at the site. He believes that his Mexican experience will leave him better prepared for the increasingly complex problems of Puerto Rican archeology. The Caballito Blanco is painted on a cliff at the side of a long low mesa, in the soft rock of which time has croded many caves and in these caves several herds of goats are kept.
  • Will I ever get it clean? Ruth Davis straightens up to ease her weary back after a long session bent over a dusty burial during the 1958 work at the Caballito Blanco (Glamorous archeology also involves its devotees in endless assignments of dishwashing).
  • Dr. Milton Barnett, University of Wisconsin anthropologist, is workin in Mexico for the Rockefeller Foundation, checking on the effectiveness of its projects in this country. A large number of English-speaking residents of Oaxaca joined the MCC student group in the library of MCC's Oaxaca center to hear Dr. Barnett describe his work and discuss the increasingly important field of applied anthropology. Such talks are a frequent feature at the Centro de Estudios Regionales.
  • The workman at left is cementing the stones of the inner, older stairway in place; Norma McCallan holds a tape and Susan Fenollosa takes measurements of the stones forming the outer, later stairway; Dick Swenfurth, in the background, puzzles over the meaning of a newly exposed wall.
  • Standing in the space between the two stairways at the front of the pyramid shown in the drawings, Charles Golodner and Norma McCallan hold the tape while Susan Fenollosa calls out measurements and John Paddock makes notes. The worn, rounded stones of the outer stairway show evidence of long exposure after abandonment of the site. The sharp corners of the stones making up the inner stairway were better preserved because the outer building covered there completely.

  • Admiring a piece of modern sculpture in the Art Center is Claude Jeanneau, Mexico City College's most attractive Parisienne. Claude thinks that it is about time that the present trend toward complete abstraction in art forms be changed and that artists begin to think and see for themselves.
  • "Brains and initiative are all that are needed to obtain an education," claims Dr. I. Hamilton Perkins. The orthopedist is studying Spanish at MCC to prepare himself for courses in plastic surgery at the National University.

  • Three students gather around to admire Joe Leavitt, MCC's star-forward and former captain of the basketball team. Joe deserves the admiration because he and his gang copped second place in the summer invitational basketball meet sponsored by YMCA. Joe displays the placing trophy. With him are Bill Primavera (left) and Gene Bardell (right). Diane Jones is the pretty one.
  • Eva Lowgren backhands to victory in a Swedish approach to a Mexican racquet. Eva is the find of MCC's Coach Lindley who considers her the most accomplished and versatile woman athlete to be seen at the college in a long time.
