THIS is something of a new exper-
iment in that' this review is
written not by a professor of Spanish,
as in the past years, but by a student
who has learned most of his Span-
ish in the Romance Languages Build-
ing and who has never been south of
the Rio Grande.(
As a consequence, such an element!
as an actor's clarity of expression
will probably sway me unduly. Before
the final curtain fell, I had begun to
welcome a slow, clear speech like an
island in an ocean.
Perhaps the choice of the play had
something to do with it. Puebla de
las Mujeres has a modicum of ac-,
tion and relies almost entirely uponI
conversation to carry it along. If you[
do not follow the conversation close-
ly, the play, simple as it is, is apt to
go beyond you.

Washington Merry-Go-Round

Mexico To Right.. .
TIONS which began with Mexico
last week again bring up the question cf where
goes the socialist-backed government of Rightist
Camacho and to what extent the United States
can influence its course. This question is vitally
related to Hemisphere cooperation.
Cardenas brought into abortive reality many
of the reforms dreamed of for decades by Mexi-
can liberals and sorely needed in the retarded
nation. Foremost among these was land dis-
tribution among the peoples who did all the farm
labor and received least in return. Next in
importance were raising wages and providing
better labor conditions in urban as well as rural
areas, and establishing a system of practical
education for the masses. Other desired reforms
included the incorporation of the Indians into
national life, limiting the political influence of
the Church, curbing the power of foreigners,
enlarging social security and placing more em-
phasis on national values. All these aims were in
Cardenas' campaign promises, and many formed
the salient features of his administration. But
like all reformers he was obsessed with the late-
ness of the start and the brevity of his oppor-
tunity; and, consequently, substituted legal revo-
lution for evolution. His methods jarred Mexico
and shocked the United States.
events stressed the necessity of Hemisphere solid-
arity, while Mexican relations with the United
States were at a low ebb of amicability. Shortly
before the summer elections, pressure from with-
in Mexico and without guided the government
into more conservative channels. Feeling thin
pressure, Cardenas and other Leftists sought to
salvage what policies they could by supporting
Camacho as the most liberal of the Rightist can-
didates. And so far Camacho has successfully
placed his government in the light of United
States benevolence by gradually dismantling
Cardenas' socialist reforms.-
The reconstruction program includes the reor-
ganization of certain socialized utilities such as
the railroads and the petroleum industry. Sup-
pression of Nazi activity has been reported, and
plans to open diplomatic relations with France
are under way. President Camacho has declared
that henceforth there shall be "law and order";
has received the blessing of the Archbishop of
Mexico City; has lodged a set of the old type
appeasers on his cabinet; has clamped down on
labor; and has reopened the oil controversy for
settlement more satisfactory to United States
interests. In fact, the whole conservative trend
is operating to woo United States capital, to
appease United States big business, and to show
that Mexico has the "right spirit" in fostering
Hemisphere defense.
But like all Latin Americans, Mexicans have
been deeply branded with the old style Yankee
imperialism, and the brass bands of Hemisphere
patriotism cannot drown out whispered warnings
of exploitation among the little men. Many
voted against Cardenas in the last election be-
cause his methods were too swift and his pro-

Y ET THE AUDIENCE seemed gen-
erally to understand and enjoy
the play. The Spanish professors
prompted laughs from the students
and Prompter Early Thomas helped!
the hero along so that the comedy
went off with sufficient ease.
It, is a farcial study of the power of
gossip. Young Adolfo, played rather{
anemically by Claude Hulet, is a
handsome stranger in a small town.
There he becomes entangled in the
intrigues of an assortment of gos-
sips led by Concha Puerto-very cap-
ably enacted by June Larson, whose
clear diction was a blessing. Despite
his declarations of innocence, Adolfo
finds himself rumored to be in love
with the village's flower, Juanita,
played coyly but acceptably by Nor-
ma Bennet. Struggle as he will, the
hero is finally wo over by the charms
of Juanita and the strategems of
Concha, and the curtain falls with
the agreement that Adolfo shall come
to her window and whisper amor-
ously-a sure sign in Spain.
It is a play full of good character
parts, and the cast took excellent
advantage of them. Among the men
David Gibson, as the not-too-pious
priest, and Raymond Chambers, as
the woman-hating Doctor Cecilio,
carry off the honors, with Robert
Mantho's portrayal of Guitarra draw-
ing appreciative laughs. Lenora
Grossman, as the deaf and querulous
Santita, and Carmelita Rosasco, in
the role of Angela, contribute good

WASHINGTON - Behind the scenes, Henry
Wallace played quite a part in the Mexican-
U.S. agreement to work out joint plans for na-
tional defense.
It was Henry's job, during his trip to Mexico as
Vice-President-elect, to put across some quiet
diplomacy with ° new President Avila Camacho
aimed to smooth out all U.S.-Mexican problems.
This he did, and became completely "simpatico"
with high Mexican officials.
However, Henry also brought back a very wor-
risome picture of Nazi activity in Mexico.
Being a farm boy from Iowa, and skeptical
about the Zimmermann affair during World War
I when the German Foreign Office invited Mex-
ico into an alliance against the United States,
Henry went down to Mexico as an unbeliever as
far as Nazi propaganda was concerned. But he
came back, his skepticism gone.
The great mass of the Mexican people and the
Mexican Government are sincere believers in
friendship with the United States, Henry found.
But a small minority, plentifully supplied with
Nazi-Fascist cash, has been doing its best to
poison friendly relations.
In fact, there were some indications that the
Nazis might even go to such lengths as outright

sabotage or damage to the United States in such
a way that Mexico would get the blame, thereby
stirring up animosity between the countries.
Note:-Last year $2,000,000 in U.S. greenbacks
was taken to Mexico from New Orleans by Count
Roberti of the Italian legation, presumably for
propaganda purposes. Count Roberti is the son-
in-law of Ogden Hammond, ex-Ambassador to
Spain and a leader of the move to cooperate
with Spanish Dictator Franco.
Guarding The Capital
If you visit the United States Capitol in the
near future don't carry an isolationist banner or
anything more explosive than a cigarette lighter,
or you may wind up in the brig. Tightest police
restrictions since World War days soon will be
put into effect at the Capitol building.
Under a plan devised by Speaker Sam Ray-
burn, Senator Harry F. Byrd, chairman of the
Senate Rules Committee, and Arthur E. Cook of
the Capitol Police Board, all visitors will be re-
quired to check packages before entering the
Several thousand numbered checks were or-
dered last week from the Government Printing
Office, to be used at special booths at every
entrance to the building. Furthermore, strange
visitors will be asked to remove their overcoats,
just in case they are concealing something of
interest to the police.
Meantime, the safety of members of Congress
as well as the protection of the historic building
itself isbeing entrusted more and more to experi-
enced hands, and less to tenderfoot college stu-
dents who double in brass as Capitol policemen.
Veteran bluecoats from the District of Columbid
force and FBI agents now handle more obstrep-
erous troublemakers during the day, and guard
the building exclusively from midnight until
8 a.m.
Two things hastened the decision to tighten
police regulations at the seat of our government.
First were the recent disturbances by demon-
strators against the lend-lease bill. Second, was
the fact that a member of the regular Capitol
cop force was found asleep late at night at the
only entrance to the building. Another was
caught dozing at the Capitol's power plant.
A Labor OPM
What the President has in mind to cure strikes
in national defense industries is a labor board
under the OPM.
It will consist of nine or eleven members (exact
number still undecided), made up of a panel of
three or four representatives of management,
another panel of the same number from labor,
and three representatives of the "public." The
last group will be its real works.
This new labor board will be independent of
the OPM but will work in close conjunction with
it. Object is to relieve the OPM of grappling'
with labor disputes, so that it can concentrate on
expediting production.
The board will have no compulsory arbitration
powers-vehemently opposed by both AFL and
CIO. Its authority will rest chiefly on the force
