MEXICO CITY, Jan. 25. -
Though apparently p 1 e a s e d,
Aaron Saenz, the Mexican for-
eign minister, declined to com-
ment when shown a dispatch
announcing that the Unitedi
States Senate had unanimously
adopted the Robinson resolution
proposing arbitration of the dif-
ficulties between the United
States and Mexico arising out
of the new oil and land laws.
Government circles, in general,
however, received the news
with distinct satisfaction and
regarded it as an encouraging
omen. Foreign office officials
pointed out that the Mexican
government had already formally
declared its readiness to accept
arbitration in principle, but
they were not in a position to
speculate on future possibilities.
Some officials while gratified,
remarked they were not sur-
prised at the Senate's action, as
they believed it represented
the desire of the people of the
United States to adjust the Mexi-
can question peacefully, which
also was the desire of the Mexi-
can people.


(By Associated Press)
I NASHINGTON, Jan. 25.-Taking
its first direct stand on the Mexican
question, the Senate today unanim-
ously advised President Coolidge to
arbitrate the pending controversy
with Mexico over that republic's oil
and land laws.
I Every-one of the 79 senators present,
42 Republicans, 36 Democrats and the
1 Farmer-Labor, voted for the resolu-
tion of Senator Robinson, of Arkan-
sas, the Democratic leader, as revised
last week by the foreign relations
Several, however, approved the res-
olution . with reservations, either on
the ground that it constituted an in-
terference with the powers of the
chief executive or might encourage
the Mexican government to the adop-
rtionof an even stronger policy than
heretofore enforced.
Reed Keeps Silence
Senator Reed, Democrat, Missouri,
who voted against the resolution in
committee, had been looked to for
leadership in opposition to Senate ac-
tion, and had prepared a speech, but
deferred its delivery until tomorrow.
He advised the Senate late in the day,
when members were demanding a
vote, that he would detain it no longer
and left the chamber.
Some blunt words, directed appar-
ently at both the American and Mex-
ican governments, were used by those
foremost in urging favorable action
by the Senate on what was described
