Soon as I finish writting this I am going to tell them I quit! You may now think I am nuts but let me fiB you in on this "mad Ranch". I just found ou t that half of the hired hands on his ranch are Queens, les· bians, every type of homosexua ls Id ever believed imaginable. I found out tha t the guy [ work with, the other 'd ish washer on my shift, is a Queer as can be. It didn't dawn on me till I realized this guy abou t 50 years old started being unwelcomely friendly. Such as, "why don't I come and stay in his room," etc. Now I finally real. ized why the chief has asl..,d me if I like girls and do I .take them out, while inter· viewing me for the job. This guy im telling you about named Scotty is really a nice guy, Yah, he11 even let you eat crackers in bed with him. He hasn't any teeth which now I know why. He probly ate them for dinner one nistht when he go t a little too fresh. I asked my two room mates about him and they told me he was one of four o r five known Homos on the ranch. and to tell you the truth I feel sorry for those guys, because I know they were born that way . T ha t is why I am lea ving this joint in a hurry, not because I am afraid of these queers but bet-ause of the fact that I hate no one more. Right now I feel so low and hateful towar d them tha t I can't stand to even have them in my presence. For one lives and sleeps on each side of our room . U one touches me I know I will basn the hell out of him. I really donot or can not believe there is such people. Jim Ashmore said that at the bus depot one sat next to him, grabbed his leg and made a pass at him, he knoked him and got the hell out of there. Last night Jerry, one of the Homo's, a quiet heavy set guy I:ave me a scientific book (I didn't know he was homo then ) which states one out of every sixth man in the U. S. is homosexua l. I am leaving right now hoping I won't run into one on the way. ~'fy suitcases are packed and I just gave one of the pin up I:irls over my roomates bed a goodbye kiss. .\faTch3D, 1963 - Saturday BACK TO CIVILIZATION Jim Ashmore Writes I stayed ,,~th a friend last night. He brought me down to the place where Mark and Jim were staying. They were surprised to see me I told them why I qui t my job and they both said !bey would have done the same thing. I noticed that one of the rear windows were missin~~ I found out that they had Jeft the truck at a gas sta· tion and when they came back, and saw that window was missing they thought that someone had broken into the truck . Later they found out that a ciga r ash had caught a blanket on fire and someo ne broke in the window and put ou t the fire with water. \ Ve were very fortunate that someone had noticed it. We
