Vicente at top of photo and Aurora in white blouse were soon to become refugees. The family loaded their belongings into a horse-drawn wagon and fled in the middle of the night, along with Aurora's father and uncle, Carlos and Eduardo Munoz.

Joe Lewels at age 16 (1931) was featured in a story in the El Paso Post (later the Herald Post). Joe had just landed a job as a copy boy at the newspaper when he made the front page. The room he lived in, above an old hotel, burned down. Joe called in the fire alarm and assisted women and children out of a window and across the roof to another building. The editor asked him to write the front page story for the next day. This began a long career as perhaps the first Mexican-American reporters in the U.S.
