Nuevo Santander The Unrealized Archaeological Potential of a “Civilian” Province in Northern New Spain
Russell K. Skowronek, Christopher L. Miller, and Roseann Bacha-Garza
In 1746 the Viceroy of New Spain called for the founding of a new province to be located between the Rio Grande and the Nueces River. Between 1748-1755 two dozen civilian communities of farmers and ranchers were established by the province’s founder José de Escandón. Many towns were founded along the banks of the Rio Grande where there was access to water and lands for agriculture and grazing. Each town served as the administrative, economic, and ecclesiastical hub for surrounding land grants and ranches. Were it not for the work of W. Eugene George, Mindy Bonine, and Mary Jo Galindo, our knowledge of the architectural and archaeological history of this region would be woefully incomplete. In this presentation the CHAPS Program team draws on the work of these pioneers and continuing original research concerning the surviving archaeological and architectural record of the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

Jim Lemons and Judy Walton
Former UTB/TSC physical education professor Werner Steinbach invented pington, a racquet sport similar to badminton, in the 1960s. But the sport lacked a textbook until Kinesiology Department (now the Health and Human Performance Department) faculty members Jim Lemons and Judith D. Walton formalized the rules of the game in print. In pington, athletes learn how to play this fast-paced game, which takes place on a badminton court and is played in singles, doubles and mixed doubles with special, locally made paddles. The text explains why pington rallies (played with a higher net than is used in badminton) tend to last longer and why a game of pington provides a better aerobic workout than less demanding racquet sports.

PROJECT REPORT NO. 5-0619-0
The Valley Gravity Project plan has been formulated to furnish an adequate and dependable irrigation water supply for fertile and productive area in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas. It would also provide drainage works, which would remove the threat of destruction of the economy of the area due to effects of a high water table and salt accumulations. The project works would permit generation of the maximum practicable amount of electrical energy and at the same time the plan would free for industrial and other development of the valley electrical energy which otherwise would be required to operate irrigation pumping plant. Other incidental benefits include fish and wildlife conservation, recreation and flood control.

From the Texas State Library and Archives Commission Rangers and Outlaws web page:
"Raids and cattle theft had been a sporadic problem along the Mexican border for decades, but in 1915, revolutionaries began to target symbols of American oppression for destruction, including farms, irrigation systems, and railroad lines. Local law enforcement could not cope with the escalating lawlessness. The Texas governor dispatched the Texas Rangers to restore order and chase the revolutionaries back to the Mexican side of the line. (The unrest spanned the terms of three governors: Oscar Colquitt, James E. "Pa" Ferguson, and William Hobby.) As the violence grew worse, the legislature authorized the creation of special companies called Loyalty Rangers to police the border.
Unfortunately, these Rangers wrote a black chapter in the history of their organization. Not content to police the area, they engaged in heavy-handed bullying of the Tejano population and worse. It is estimated that as many as 5000 Hispanics were killed by the Rangers between 1914 and 1919. (About 400 white Texans were killed in the unrest on the border, and millions of dollars in property was destroyed.) Some shocking atrocities were perpetrated against civilians on both sides.
In 1918, Texas state representative José T. Canales of Brownsville launched an investigation into the conduct of the Texas Rangers during the border wars and filed nineteen charges of misconduct against the Rangers. The following year, the Texas legislature formed a joint House-Senate committee to look into Canales's charges. They heard testimony for two weeks.
As a result of the investigation, the Loyalty Rangers were abolished, and the Texas Rangers were reduced in force. Higher recruiting standards were put in place, and the pay of Rangers was increased to attract and retain higher-quality officers. Finally, procedures were implemented to better hear complaints from citizens about misconduct. These reforms helped the Rangers return to a position of respect during the 1920s and 1930s."

Recorded news items and historical facts as they happened down through the past years, some happy, some sad, some good, some bad
John R. Peavey
Sketches, photographs, and timeline kept by the author of local and national news between January 16, 1906 through December 7, 1941. Major topics covered are: local government, railroad, vegetable crops, prominent citizens, new cities, U.S. Army, assassinations, land buyers, sugar mills, weather, politicians, hospitals, airplane, Mexican Revolution, Mexican Border War, refugees, prohibition, WWI, Spanish flu, and transportation.
"At the beginning of this story I said that the facts and material for this story were taken from a diary that I kept through the years beginning in 1906. I now find that to describe everything that has happened and give a detailed account of what took place I will never finish this story, so I shall bring the story to a close in the following few pages so lets call them “tid-bits” or shorts of what took place during some of those early days in the land “South of the TexMex”."
Reporting at the border:Translation in periodicals at the Texas-Tamaulipas border during the 19th century
Gabriel Gonzalez Nunez
This paper addresses the historical relationship between journalism and translation. It approaches translation history by considering journalistic translation as found in newspapers published in the Lower Rio Grande Valley (the southernmost, easternmost stretch of the Mexico-US border) during the 19th century. Specifically, the paper will ask whether translation was a tool employed in journalistic activity in the region and, if so, what the role was of translation in such activity. It will review the presence of translation in available border periodicals from the 1840s to the end of the century. This review will show that regarding certain aspects, historical news translation in this region was like that found in other places (e.g. a tool for importing foreign news). However, it will also highlight some traits that are the consequence of the newspapers being published along an essentially porous border where languages and cultures flowed into each other to create a specific bilingual context.

Today the citizenry of Edinburg lives in a bi-lingual, bi-national, and bi-cultural environment of Spanish- and English-speaking peoples. Were we to travel back eighty years to the 1930s and visit the ice houses, packing sheds, cotton gins, and streets of Edinburg it would not be unusual to hear people being greeted in a cacophony of languages- “Good Day,” “Buenos días (Spanish),” “Dzień dobry (Polish),” “Guten Tag (German),“ “God dag (Swedish),” and “Goede dag (Flemish).” Through the social process known as “chain migration” friends and family will learn of opportunities and then follow previous migrants to the new community. In this study we learn of Camiel Roegiers, a Flemish-speaking Belgium national who, as a “bird of passage,” makes three trips to the United States at the beginning of the twentieth century to work and live in Texas, Virginia, Kansas, and ultimately Edinburg, Texas. Along the way he was joined by his siblings, and in-laws.

La acalorada controversia sobre introduccion por el puerto e Matamoros de efectos prohibidos que parecia haber ya terminado, se ha vuelto a suscitar ocasion de haberse decomisado en el Saltillo cinta cantidad de libras de hilaza de algodon estrangera, que caminaba con guias de esta Aduana maritima...
Para vindicarme a mi y a ella, basta publicar ,el informe justificativo que se acompania, estendido en cumplimiento de la orden del Ministerio de Hacienda pues en el se ve que cuando por Suprema disposicion de 1 de Mayo de 1839 se volvio a permitir la introduccion por este puerto de efectos prohibidos no se hizo excepcion ni exijio requisito alguno, a diferencian de la autorizacion de 30 de Septiembre ultimo, que solo permitia la introduccion de los efectos para los cuales librase expreso permiso el Sr. General Arista.
The heated introduction controversy through the port and Matamoros of prohibited effects that seemed to have already finished has arisen again occasion of having been confiscated in Saltillo ribbon amount of pounds of cotton yarn stranger, who walked with guides of this Customs maritime...
To vindicate me and her, it is enough to publish the supporting justification report, issued in compliance with the order of the Ministry of Finance, since it is seen that when the Supreme Court provision of May 1, 1839, the introduction through this port of prohibited effects was allowed again, no exception was made nor did it require any requirements, unlike the authorization of September 30 last, that it only allowed the introduction of the effects for which Mr. General Arista expressly released permission.
