MEXICO SICK OF REVOLUTION
SEES NEW HOPE IN OBREGON
By Ralph it .TirnK
(United Press .Staff Correspondent I.
Washington Doc 17. People - bo-
come keenly philosophical in a coun-
try whore revolutions have been5 fea-
tured throughout Kiat country's his-
Everyday philosophy in Mexico
therefore a ihilo.sophy which fre-
quently is expressed by no more
than a Nhrug- of the . Hhoulders has
been' developed to the highest point.
And yet even the Mexican despite
his feeling of indifference and his
sense of the futility of everything is
preparing today to begin life over
again. He is going ahead in antici-
pation of a "new deal" believing
that he and his children have
greater cause for .hope than ut any
time in the last ton years.
Tlmf spirit with Its varied manifes-
tations is the index to the social
condition of Mexico today. It repre-
sents the thought of Mr. Average
The whole population -with the
exception of a few disgruntled politi-
cians and military men is sick of
revolution; the country has boon
looted from one end to (lie other.
And so the Mexican makes ready
for another start. People who flooded
into Mexico City from the provinces
because the capital offered a greater
degree of shelter from marauding
rebels are 'beginning now to relrace
their steps. They are going back to
the farm or the store. Exiles who
were expelled by one or tho other of
the various regimes since the fall
of Porfirio Diaz in 1910 are stream-
ing home fronii New York and 'Lon-
don and Madrid.
But the present is still the period
of transition. Not until the now gov-
ernmoht finds its stride and (urns
its attention to a score of pressing
domestic and international problems
at the same time obtaining financial'
and imoral aid from abroad wijl
Mexican national life approach a
state of 'well-being. In the meantime
the Mexican offers further proof if
such 'were needed that human na-
ture remains the same no matter
how many international boundary
lines are crossed. The Mexican goes
to the Movies (American movies)
grumbles about the 'high cost of liv-
ing and loves his children.
In Mexico Oily a thoroughly -modern
capital he attends the theatre
stages an exuberant ' ."party" with
about the same regularity as an
American did in the pre-aniendment
days and goes to bull fights 'on Sun-
day afternoon. He is a devout Catho-
lic but has never heard of a "blue
law." He probably spends his mon y
more lavishly than an Anglo-Saxon
person with a similar 'income needn't
vary much from what it costs in
the United States. One thing just
about balances another. He must pay
more for a -great many articles Be-
cause they are imported but he can
maintain a whole corps of servants
for the same expenditure that r.ne
would involve from the Rio Grande
Vegetables fruit and some of the
meats (goat especially the kid is
popular) costs less than in an
American metropolis. Fuel is a min-
or item in Mexico City bfcau.se of
the temperate climate. If a Mexican
lives at a hotel he may pay any-
where from $2 to $(!. (United States
currency) a day for his room though
'lie won't receive the modern ac-
commodations that most Americans
demand. House rents are high as
liractically no building has been
done during the revolutionary days.
It is beginning now to revive.
One difficulty -with the life in
Mexico ity the one Kiat most
Americans encounter is the social
cuimiuoii inar. nas overlooked any
provision for Mie (middle class. The
"high class" Mexican generally limits
his business activity to either own-'
ing property and deriving tho in-
come therefroin or playing some
part in the 'management of the gov-
ernment. Doth have been paying
propositions in the past. The mer-
chandising business and the opera-
ndi! of 'mines oil properties and
olaer resources is generally in the
liatirts of foreigners. The poorer
classes get along the best' they can.
Frequently their condition seems
pitiful to an American. It is common
for three or four people to live

either. Beans and corn are the chief
articles of diet. The cotton garments
a sombrero and a pair of sanda's are
the principal forma of raiment worn
. by tin people of the poorest class.
How a Mexican clerk can live on
one hundred pesos ($.0) a monti).
ona present a good appearance.
may seem beyond the comprel ension
lint it is done. Almost the best in
.Mexican servants may be obtaiued
or twenty-five ' pesos'
A$ a result of the social structure
an Amerloaif may ' have difficulty to
avoid the alternatives of living either
as an oil magnate or a day laborer.
For instance there are no "quick
lunch" restaurants in Mexico City.
Dinner in tho middle of tho day Is
an event which requires the fullest
attrition. Business houses close from.
1 to 3 sometimes longer. The time is
devoted largely to eating and then
sleeping. After a 'full Mexican meal
the siesta is almost Indispensable
and comes easily ast sleep comes to
one who is drugged.
Hut there's uuother alibi for sloop
besides the length of a Mexican
menu. Mexico City is about 7300 feet
above .sea level and the altitude lias
strange and varied effects. One re-
quires more sleep tho doctors ex-
plain because .many organs of the
body are forced to work overtime.
Also eggs -must 'be boiled longer if
one takes them that way. "Fried
straight up" is not affected 'by the
altitude. Consumption of alcoholic
drinks Is held to be extremely dan
gerousj 'because of the altitude's
manipulations with the heart al-
though statistics Hhow no loss in
consumption for that reason.
The Mexican Sonne of humor is
highly developed particularly among
tho peon class. There is the story
for instance that involves Caruso
when the famous tenor visited Mex-
ico City and sang in the bull ring.
It was the largest place available
and was thronged at every perform-
ance' the Mexicans of every social
.class having a keen appreciation of
music. (Caruso had finished "Carni-
en." The tremendous "applause was
followed by a hush when a peon a.
bull fight fan as well as a imusie
lover arose in his seat md demand-
ed loudly: "Otro toro!" (another

Richard's memory it seems runs
back to l!t()G when ho was "all
dressed up with the Gans-Nelson
fight and had no place to go."
He was shown the gates of Cali-
fornia after he had built an arena
nd had to chase over into Nevada
with his one-ring caravan.
With his business-like ear to the
ground Rickard has learned that lots
of officials in these parts are feel
ing just like tho governor of Cali
fornia did back in 190G.
The New York Boxing Commis-
sion is against it and the American

There are other nice things about
London. One is the trivial matter
of $1500(10. From a business stand-
point the gato has to be a million
dollars. A "gate of that size in
New York would mean $150000 in
