El Pasatiempo is here. After the burning of Zozobra this evening at 8 P.M., the town will be dedicated to jolly fun. Any Santa Fean who is suspected of harboring dull care after that hour, or even of thinking a serious thought, will be liable to a fine, not to exceed five hundred dollars, same to be paid to the Pasatiempo committee.

If you can't wear a rose in your hair, and you haven't got a lace mantilla you can get out your white duck trousers and tie a red cheese cloth around your middle. If Paddy's pig were here he'd be more Spanish than Irish tonight. Then of course there is considerable latitude. If you would rather be a Mayan noble see Doc Morley and learn how to turn egg beaters into earrings and pie tins into armor. If you want to be a bad man get the forty-four from under the mattress, find a neck cloth and a big hat and join the forces of Billy the Kid. — The Santa Fe New Mexican, Sept. 3, 1926
