Many International Problems Together
With Questions of Foreign Poli.
cies Baffle Solution
Mexico City, Nov. 29.-The first year
of General Alvaro Obregon's admin-
istration as president of Mexico which
ends Nov. 30, has been one essentially
of reconstruction and reorganization.
He became the head of a republic torn
and worn by revolution, split by fac-
tional strife, its finances a wreck and
its rehabilitation an almost superhu-
man task.
Many Complicated Problems
The federal-owned railroads have
been completely reorganized in the
managerial departments and some pro-
gress is being made toward their re-
habilitation. Rolling stock has been
acquired and an alarming port con-
gestion, which threatened bankruptcy
to ma.y interior merchants who were
unable to obtain shipments of goods,
has been appreciably relieved.
The agrarian question still vexes,
although the administration claims
that its program in regard to lands is
on the road to completion. Under the
direction of the National Agrarian
comnmission, several hundred thousand
acres of land have been -expropriat, d
from the large haciendas and delivered
to the peasants.
Radlealism Changed
The Obregon government has been
charred with a trend tovWard radical-
ism. Various state governments, not-
ably those of Veta Cruz .and Pnebla
have enacted laws that are regarded
here as radical and pleas for federal
intervention to prevent their enforce-
ment have been met with the official
statement* that he chief execuive will

And it's going to be some picture

How could it help but be when it involves a mysterious romance of opium smug-

glers, secret service and love.

You will be held spellbound by the great struggle

in which love and the law both fight for the same man. Which got him? Well,
we won't say because that would be telling but just you see this picture-you'll
be surprised.
