3 f~~~!~HIll~~~~i j= andy lucer0 ~=NuTs~ Conf~[~nc~ SidLed For Duv~//, SkykoJTl/sh :- a_ = City Correspondent| HUIIIIIIIHHUJL J.Jtlllltittt!mm _11~-~ From Acapulco: Luis Ibarra must have been quite alady killer in his life. Well, even at sixty, he still has this charm and grace, that self- contained ferment that exudates confidence. He is a big man and as he modestly puts it--~-"Life has been one hell of a good adventure for me. I have been active in sports all my life. I have a way with horses. I have been a pilot. I have made a fortune in business and lost it. Andy Lucero "I took this res- taurant over on a dare. Already have three of- fers to manage a bigger operation but I am going to stayhere for awhile. I love Acapulco. Lets face it, this is the Fort Knox Of Mexico. My wife is in Mexico City so I am going to show you around.' ' Bill and Helen Wheeler from Chicago joined us. The conversation starts. "So you are from seattle?" Bill asks. "That is God's country don't spoil it." Bill happens to know more about the Northwest than I ever will. Bill was in charge of setting up observation posts during World War II. When he started telling me about all the beautiful country we have here and the places he worked in I felt kind of small. Helen can well handle herself. She was an Army nurse in Europe during the war. She is also a linguist. Luis had a little party planned for us. He took us to the Acapulco Princess. This happens to be one of the newest hotels built and after you see it---you come to only one conclusion--it is not a hotel--it is a work of art! The vast complex consists of two pyramids, 20 stories high. The playgrounds harbor two golf courses and something like ten tennis, courts. A suspension bridge takes you to the swimming pool with a cascading waterfall and under the fall is a bar. Then there is the ocean beach. "Como le gusta" Luis asks me. There was no answer. There has always been an under-current of selfish egotism in the history of the human race. When we appreciate a work of art is when this egotism comes to surface. The vanity of seeing creative evolution come to puberty. That is the way it hit me. Modern Mexican Architecture, perhaps, the most dominant French oriented avant garde force in two hemispheres geared to provide mankind's :!:i fanny with a nest above the tulips, has gone primitive. What the Mexican architects created here may be the turning point for the future. They have my sincere BRAVO! And of course MUCHAS GRACIAS TO LUIS IBARRA. Lest we forget, the insects are still the best architects in the world.
