V COLLECTING PITAHAYA FRUIT FOREWORD THIS book is the record o a trip overland In the fall of 1941 from San Diego to Cape San Lucas at the tip of Lower Cali fornia. It Is neither an adventure story nor a systematic study of the little-known Mexican province. It is simply a record of what I saw there, and such economic and socio logical statistics as it contains arise incidentally from the story itself. Lower California is the Mexican land which hangs like an elephants trunk below our own California. In this book when I speak of Lower California I am, of course, referring to the Mexican province. Southern California denotes the area roughly a hundred miles north and south of Los An geles, and east to the Arizona line. And when I use the word California alone, I am speaking of the entire state of Cali fornia, U. S. A. This is confusing, even to Westerners, and it needs clearing up at the outset. GREETINGS MY DEAR MAX With reference to the anti-American feeling which was so prominent and noticeable during your visit to Lower California, the following data may be of interest to you At the time of your visit such feeling was especially pro nounced, owing to the activities of numerous German agents who had been sent into the country to organize local resident Germans. They combined to turn loose a continu ous series of publications, talks, and general barroom gossip to promote an ill-feeling against the Americans, and you happened to be in the muzzle of the gun at the time of your trip. Pearl Harbor solidified the Mexican idea against various Axis powers just as much as it did that of the United States. The Mexican government very promptly slapped in jail all the German residents and nonresidents and all Japanese of the same character they could get their hands on and they were all safely under lock and key before even the United States had made any such movement. Left to themselves, the Mexican people responded in the proper fashion and are just as an ti-Axis as we ourselves are and are carrying on their activities with wholehearted co operation, both on the part of government officials, Army, Navy and Air Force. In fact, their enthusiasm is admirable and they cannot understand why we dont immediately invade Japan and settle our score with that racial group. They are very anxious to go along on the trip and do their bit at finishing them off. You would be quite astonished at the enthusiastic attitude of that region at present in comparison to what you noted at the time of your visit.
