Expulsion Of Monks And Nuns Result
Of Attempt To Run Government.
By Education Scheme
Stressing the economic conditions
prevalent in Mexico as a cause of the
present political situation there, Prof.
Andres Osuna of Mexico City spoke on
tle subject' of "Present Phases of
Mexican Affairs" in a University lec-
ture in Newberry hall auditorium yes-
terday afternoon. He dealt with the
rise of a number of the problems
which have been the subject of recent
legislation in Mexico.
Professor Osuna took first, the de-
velopment of the -various tonditions
that were contributing factors to the
passage of the Oil Law. In giving
the historical background for this law,
he said that it dated from the days
when Mexico was a Spanish colony,
and It was the policy of the colonial
government to distribute the land to
settlers for agricultural purposes, but
to keep the mineral rights to itself.
In 1884, with the passage of a new
mining code, he said that the land was
distributed by the Mexican govern-
ment without the reservation of the
claims upon mineral resources, but
th'at this was in the hope of interesting
foreign capital in the development of
Mexico. In 1892 a,,similar nmeasure
was passed, and it was not until later
that the troble with foreign interests
became a serious governmental prob-
lem. The attempt of the Mexican gov-
ernment with the passage of the Oil
Law late in 1925 to gain back its old
sub-soil rights to settled or conces-
sionary lands was Justifiable in the
light of thedmeasures of 1884 and
1892, he stated.
Flays Oil Companies
Professor Osuna gave illustratios
of the diffialty the government faces
In.dealing with the great oil coin-
panies from his own experiences as
governor of the state of Tamaulipas,
In -which the city of Tampico is lo-
cated. He said that there was great
unwillingness olthe part of the oil
corporations to meet the Mexican
taxes, none of which are nearly as
hight as those In the United States.
The hesitation of foreign concerns to
submit cases of justice to Mexican
courts has often presented another
difficulty, in that if a court investga-
tion into land titles were made in the
progress of a suit, the oil companes
wo ld probably lose their holdings.
Explains Religious Troules
Recent religious agitation has been
the result of the oil problem, he stated
further, and the reasons for the ex-
pulsion of monks and nuns from Mex-
ico are their attempts to control the
government through their scheme of
education, a thing contrary to Mexi-
can practice since the disestablishment
of-a state church.
In speaking of the so-called Alien
Land law, Professor Osuna said thatt
it was a probable soluttion to the boun-
dary difficulties which have arisen
from time to time, and that by it, the
government hoped to avert further
diplomatic troubles.
As a summary, he said that Mexico
wants more foreign investments, but
she also wants to see that her people
are protected against exploitation, her
new constitution being designed with
that end in view..

were in a turmoil of excitement

Several persons were injured and
taken to the hospital. New Kent

sons were arrested.

Of Alarmists
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 6-The British gov-
rnment and the Trades Union con-
:ress are still far apart. Neither has
shown signs of giving way in the gen-
ral strike, now entering upon its
ourth day, that has caused the great-
st industrial upheaval - the British
sles has ever experienced.
Premier Baldwin still insists that
he general strike orders must be
vithdrawn before he will enter into
ew negotiations. The labor leaders
eply with an emphatic "no" to such
condition, but declare themselves
eady to go into conference with the
;overnment with a free hand.
House Backs Baldwin
Baldwin has the backing of the
ouse on the measures undertaken
o control the strike situation. A lab-
r amendment seeking to modify a
lause in the government's bill for
he protection of property was de-
eated by a large majority.
Exemplary conduct on the part of
he strikers is again called for by the

-oughly handled, and soie of the riot-
rs were arrested.
"Is Industrial Dispute"
In a message addressed to all work-
ers, the Trades Union council says:
"The council wishes to emphasize
he fact that this is an industrial dis-
pute. It expects every member tak-
ng part to be exemplary in his con-
duct and not to give any opportunity
or police interference. The council
asks pickets especially to avoid ob-
structions and to confine themselves
strictly to their legitimate duties."
The king and queen are spending
most of their time in Buckingham
palace, keeping in close touch with the
situation. Today was "Accession
Day," but under the exceptional cir-
cumstances there was no public cele-
brations of the anniversary.
An abundance of voluntary labor
which is being slowly but surely or-
ganized by the government is greatly
relieving the worst aspects of the
stoppage. Food is plentiful and trans-
port is improving daily, not only in
London, but throughout the country.
London's underground railways and
tubes are reopening with fairly fre-
quent service. More trains are in
service on the main lines, and those
who are engaged at their evmploy-
ment are going back and forth with
less inconvenience than on the first
day of the-strike.
Trade Severely Injured
LONDON, May 6.-The British Ga-
zette, the government's newspaper,
contains in Friday's issue an official
government communique declaring
that trade and industry throughout
the entire country is suffering gre-
vious injuries through the general
"Equally throughout the country,
vital services, food, milk, light, and
power, are being successfully main-
tained by the government and every
obstacle is being progressively sur-
mounted, although, strenuous and

possibly prolonged efforts will be re-
quired from all loyal citizens.
"There is no doubt whatever of the
result," the communique continued,
"no serious disorders have occured;
abundant food transport is availabI
but picketing is interfering with dis-
tribution. The special police are be-
ing increased steadily and protection
of a growing and wider scale will be
