WILLIE ARCHULETA FOUND GUILTY OF 2nd DEGREE MURDER After a deliberation of six and one-half h o urs last Wednesday night, the jury brought in a ver- dict of second degree murder for Willie Archuleta, who was found guilty of slaying Juan I. Martinez, of Fort Garland, on the night of November 26. The sentence was pronounced on Monday giving Archuleta from ten to fifteen years in the state peni- tentiary. Archuleta will be taken to the state prison immediately by Sherifif Ed Paul. The case was held in the district court in Saguache on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week before Dis- trict Judge John I. Palmer, with District Attorney Leonard Haynie prosecuting and Scott Carroll, of Del Norte, defending. Archuleta slashed Martinez with no provocation. The cutting was done in a fit of frenzy. The knife wounds in the wrists were severe enough to cause the death of Martin- ez. He died from loss of blood and was found the next morning in a field near Center two miles from where the car was parked.

This is a gripping, realistic pic- ture that has been brilliantly acted and directed. Little of the social significance of the Sidney Kingsley play has been lost in its transfer to the screen, and the picture has more action and movementthan the stage offering. The production is worthy of the Samuel Goldwyn label, with William Wyler's direction flawless. Wyler has caught the spirit and at- mosphere of the New York slum, breeding ground of gangsters. The acting is superb, with the six young actors of the New York east contr> buting greatly to the picture. Mar- jorie Main, also of the Broadway production, is highly effective in her, scene with Humphrey Bogart, her son, a gangster, who she denounces bitterly. Bogart's work is a high- light, while Sylvia Sidney and Joel McCrea give convincing performan- ces. Wendy Barrie, Claire Trevor and Allen Jenkins are important principals and do excellent acting. Lilllan Hellman fashioned a power- ful screenplay. Editor's note: "Dead End" will be shown at the Rialto Theatre in Sa- guache in the near future. WOMEN WEAVE EVERGREEN BOUGHS Evergreen boughs woven into fes- tooning and wreaths by the Estes Park Home Demonstration Club women and others decorate the streets for the Christmas season. A little Christmas tree in the village park and an ice palace at its base form the center of the decorative scheme. BIG SNOW BENEFITS WHEAT CROP Much of Colorado enjoyed zhe heaviest snow in years last week, which greatly benefited winter wheat. The snow was 4 to 8 inches deep in different parts of north- eastern Colorado, and the precipita- tion from about one-half of an inch in some areas to more than an inch in other sections. Marg lost her dog. THE LEGEND OF THE B, A: [ fContinued from Page One) 1 another light could be seen at the[ farthermost point of the rift. These lights were not cross-shaped. They resembled white snowflakes with fire behind each of them. There was something strange about their appearance. If the per- son who had just died had done much good work, as did the stranger,- the light was bright. If little work had been done, the light was dim. The light indicated how well ?he person had obeyed the lessons taught by the first stranger. The rift in the fog continued to grow wider and wider; the lights more numerous. Gradually, the completed canopy that was above, unfolded. The cloudless, blue-vault- ed dome covered the earth. Un- numbered were the lights. The peo- ple named the lights, STARS. To them the word "star" meant, effort for good. The kindness of the stranger had hrought the sunlight of day to a darkened, forgotten world. Later, a wide, yellow band appear- ed near the eastern horizon. It con- tinued ever to rnfold in its on- ward climb to the zenith. It was composed of millions of perfect stars set so closely together that not one was visible, apart from the others. All were equal in the beautiful path they were building. This path was named the MILKY WAY. It represents the children who have blossomed and faded. It is the highway of hope over which parenthood moves toward eternal youth. The scene was complete. Happi- ness, Comfort, Human Advancement, Love, were on the march. Ever after, no person passes on without a star being set amidst those already suspended in that glor- ious firmament. It may 'be of weaker glow, or it may be of a brilliant hue. It is there to remain forever and a day as the emblem of the life someone Hved. Which star represents the life of the stranger.* They all re- present his life. As his followers obey his teachings, they become great in brilliancy or small in glow, even before they leave this earth. In the heavens above the southern seas, there hangs a wondrous, cross. It is composed of many, many bright stars so blended together that it is one grand flood of light. It is called the Southern Cross. Those who love THE LEGEND OF THE STARS say this cross was the first light to appear at the farthermost end of the rift in the fog. That it was us- pended in the heavens when the life of the stranger was completed. That the brilliancy of its beams opened the rift. That its spotless Power has brought the Light of the World to mankind. That it represents Truth. They caI1 it the Cross of Christ. The Christmas Cross. Does not our love of the stranger cause us of tokiay to call it The Star of Bethlehem. The sandman had closed the eyes of the three listening trusting child- ren. Tenderly the woman tucked them under the folds of the home- made quilts. Each moved almost silently as she kissed him goodnight. Kneeling by their crib, she caught a Faith Vision of One beyond the stars. Prayerfully she murmured: "Peace on Earth: Good Will To Men. )) CHURCH NOTES A very fine Christmas program last Sunday.
