"All the best players came through Detroit. Even though 1 was only an amateur at the time, I got the opportunity to play behind some real giants like (saxophonist) Ben Webster and Tyree Glenn, the trombonist from Duke Ellington's band."

The reporter, who works for a McAllen newspaper, had done a series of stories on the way Mexican federal officials treat peasants who are critical of the government. The stories portrayed the Mexican government in a most unfavorable light, and these officials were somewhat less than thrilled by their free publicity.

De la Rosa was spared when the court agreed to hear an appeal filed by attorney Ron Guyer. Guyer argued an anecdote a juror told while delib- erating de la Rosa's fate constituted jury mis- conduct. De la Rosa was convicted of killing a conve- nience store clerk in a 1979 robbery that netted only a six-pack of beer. The stay saved him from becoming the fourth man executed by injection in Texas.

It was a former halfway house for alco- holics. However, it is now a home for Salvadoran youths who have escaped the violence of their homeland.

"Our director would be here in a split second," he said, "if one of our pledges called and said he was being hazed. He would take away our charter and ask questions later."
