Mr. Moye is a missionary to Mexicans, in charge of the Baptist Mexican Mission at Kingsville. He also teaches at night in the U.S. Citizenship Training Corps. Mrs. Moye was born in Torreon, Mexico, daughter of a well-known physician, Dr. S.N. Taffinder. Her mother was Carolina Gonzalos-Farino, from whom Mrs. Moye learned most of her songs. The Moye children are Jimmie, Margaret and Willie."
