EARLY PADRE TELLS OF DAYS WHEN TEXAS WAS WILD AREA I Me ALLEN, Dec. 18, (UP).—One of the Lower Rio Grande Valley's oldest residents ha turned back the pages of history to relate the saga of an •nurire that today receives the admiration of a modern world. Rev. Jean Bretault, over 90 years of age, a resident of the Valley for 58 Íears, one of the founders of the ancient old missions located deep in the rush along the Rio Grande river, and Catholic missionary to the Mexican population of this section 60 years ago, recalls with startling clearness the activities of those early days. Rev. Bretault now resides at St. Peter's Novitiate south of Mission at what is known as La Lomita, "The Little Hill," which was established in 1912, years before the valley became known as a part of Texas. His experiences form a history of this valley before there were roads, churches, sufficient I food—anything. In 1872, according to Rev. Bre- linistered to p caxe lull's narrative, the Valley was iministere...
