Wvashington Government Continues
Sale of Arms and Munitions
to Obregon
Washington, Jan. 24.-(By AP)-
Tension over the Mexican situation
appeared to have been completely re-
laxed today when the state depart-
ment announced that American war
vessels ordered to Vera Cruz and
Tampico were already in process of
being withdrawn from Mexican waters
since the rebel leaders had abandoned
their attempted blockade of Tampico
and had ordered mines removed from
the harbors under their control.
With this compliance with the do-
mands of the Washington government,.
the des a Huerta leaders have with-
drawn all threats against the con-
tinued movement of peaceful Amer-
ican commerce, and the occasion for
sending the ships has passed.
Unless American lives and property
should again be jeoparadized it is un-'
likely that the Washington govern-
ment will take any further action than
to continue to make sales of war
munitions to Obregon. Secretary
Weeks approved today the sale of an
odd lot of spare parts for airplanes
and a number of bombs.
Consul Wood reported from Vera
Cruz today that de la Hureta had
ordered that ample guarantees be ex-
tended for protection of American
lives and property in the region about
Tampico, and that oil industry be per-
mitted to resume operations. A mes-
sage from Tampico later said the oil
companies actually had been granted'
such permission.

a place in his private opera company.
Chaliapin has sung, since his re-ap-
pearance in European musical circles
in 1921, in Milan, Paris, London, New
York and South American cities, with
marked success. His vocal and dram-
atic powers combine in the words of
the critics, "to form a noble and com-

Chaliapin is a master."
Rudolph Polk is known as an ar-

Eugene O'Neill's "Beyond the Hori-

Hollister's classes in play production
last night in University hall before an
enthusiastic audience. Robert Hend-
erson, '26, and J. L. Rosoff, '24, were
the outstanding figures in the cast
which was much above average stand-,
ard as a whole. These men played the
parts of Robert and Andy Mayo re-
The acting was at its worst in the
first scene, in which the principals
found it hard to get the agricultui'al
tone the piece calls for. In the later
and more emotional scenes, however
they rose to the occasion quite satis-
The play deals with the early ideals1
and subsequent marital disillusion-
ment of Robert Mayo, the son of a
farmer. In act one he wants to sail
away with his uncle and see the
world 'beyond the horizon,' but is de-
terred by a last minute discovery that
the girl whom 'he has worshipped from
afar loves him. The rest of the play
deals with his growing discontentment
with his wife, the farm, his mother-in-
law, and life in general. Although an
incurable dreamer, he is forced to keen
up appearances by working on the
farm and living with a wife who, hE
knows, loves his brother.
The settings were simple and ap-
propriate. S. M. J.
