Greetings: Know ye that on this 15 day of JULY, 1955, at altitude of 750 FT and Fahrenheit of 115 there appeared within our Valley of Contentment, Borrego Springs, California

Robert Maisteller

And Be It Known that he has been found worthy to be numbered as one of our faithful Sunworshippers and has been duly initiated into the Fun and Sun Loving Desert Way of Life."
