Big Land Owners, Foreign Investors
Army, and Politicians Lose
Hold on Natives
That the Mexican revolution sig-
nified a racial awakening on the
part of the Indian in Mexico and
had brought about four outstand-
ing results was pointed out by Dr.
Frank Tannenbaum in his lecture
on "The Economic and Social Con-
sequences of the Mexican Revolu-
tion" yesterday afternoon in the
Natural Science auditorium. Dr.
Tannenbaum has been in Mexico
for the last four or five years un-
der the auspices of the Brookings
institute, Washington, D. C., study-
ing the conditions of the coun-
"Political power in Mexico has
passed in the last ten years from
the large land-owner, the foreign
investor, the army, and the poli-
tician to the organized communi-
ty," said Dr. Tannenbaum in enum-
erating the resultant factors of the
revolution. "When the Spanish
came to Mexico, not as colonizers,
but as conquerors, they found an
ancient civilization which was bas-
ed upon a system of small com-
niunal villages where property be-
longed, not to the individual, but
to the group. The white man took
possession of as much of this land
as he could and enslaved its na-
tive owners. The Indians resisted
this intrusion, and for four hun-
dred years, the struggle went on
between the communal system and
the plantation system, instituted
by the Spanish wherein vast tracts
of land and the native inhabitants
were held in the power of a sin-
gle man.
The revolution put a definite
check to this movement which was
gradually crushing the native pop-
ulation, which predominates over
the foreign element considerably.
At present, the population is mov-
ing back from the private plan-
tation to the old communal vil
Besides this basic result of the
revolution, Dr. Tannenbaum point-
ed to the sudden development of
the Indian culture in the fields of
art, literature, and music.
Dr. Tannenbaum will lecture
again at 5 o'clock this afternoon in

subject, "The Influence of the

Speaking on the subject of "Re-

Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of the
University Meteorological station at
Mount Evans, Greenland, and head
of the department of geology, be-
fore a meeting of the Men's Educa-
tional. club which met at 7 o'clock
last night in the Union, laid the
causes of the 'Untin Bowler's fail-
ure to reach Greenland according
to schedule to the fact that it had
encountered fogs too far south on
its course. Further North he said
there would have been little or no
fog and the giant Sikorsky sea-,
plane would have reached its des-
Professor Hobbs again voiced the
opinion which he has expressed,
several times that t he overland
route to Europe by way of the
northern parts of British America,
Baffin Bay, Greenland and the ex-
treme northern Atlantic ocean was
by far the safest route for airplanes
contemplating flights to the con-
tinent for commercial or passenger
carrying reasons. The sea lanes,
he explained tax the capacities of
the airships to the utmost and it is
impossible for them to carry a load
and sufficient fuel for crossing the
3000 miles or more of the Atlantic.
In crossing British America any
plane that is equipped for both
land and sea landing has nothing
to fear. There are numerous lakes
in the Wooded portions of Canada,
and that country is no longer as'
uninhabited as it once was. Tak-
ing this route, the longest single
hop over open water would be only
300 miles compared to the 3000 of
the southern "shipping lane" route.
The passage can be made almost allt
the way with a brisk wind at the
back due to a phenomena in Green-
land which Dr. Hobbs personal-,
ly investigated. That country is
shaped like a huge dome over which
surface winds flow outward and'
about 3000 metres above this there
are strong winds blowing inwardly.
Upon reaching the center of these
winds it is possible for the airships
to drop from one current to the
othet on the opposite side and so

ers' at the fifth session of the Pub-
lic Health institute of the Sum-'
mer Session, which will be held on
next Friday and Saturday.
Professor McCollum who is an{
outstanding contributor to the sci-,
ence of nutrition will deliver two
lectures on the most recent ad-j
vances made in that field at 4 o'-
clock each afternoon of the sessionI
in the West Medical building. He
is the author of "Our Newer Knowl-
edge of Nutrition."
Dr. Fisk, one of the country's;
foremost authorities on life exten-
sion work, will likewise deliver two
lectures. They will be given at 31
o'clock, Friday and Saturday after-
noons, in the West Medical build-;
ing. Dr. Fisk has written much
material upon the subject of the
value of periodic health examina-
tions as a health procedure, two of'
his best known books being "Hov
to Live" and "Health Building and
Life Extension."
Professor R. W. Bunting, profes-
sor of dental histology and patho-
logy will outline the year's pro-I
gress in oral hygiene with partic-

singles witn VanRyan and Allison
playing in the doubles.
The . brilliant combination of
VanRyan, the dashing captain of
Princeton's tennis team last year
and Allison, former intercollegiate
champion from the University of
Texas had been considered an al-
most certain choice for the Davis
Cup assignment since they won the
classic British doubles crown, but
the selection of Tilden and Hunter
came as a surprise. So far as the
inter-zone final is concerned, the
latest move puts George Lott of Chi-
cago and John Hennessey of Ind-
ianapolis, entirely out of the pic-
ture. There still is a chance for
them to see action against France
in the challenge round, provided
their mates can eliminate the Teu-
tons. This decision battle is sched-
uled for July 26, 27°or 28 at Paris.

The open shelf study room, an
innovation in library methods, has
just recently been opened on the
ground floor of the main library.f
The new study room will be admin-
istered after the manner of the
graduate reading rooms, where
anyone may enter and help one-
self to any book without the inter-
vention of a library attendant.
Professors giving courses requir-
ing aconsiderable amount of out-
side reading may place the books in
the study room where they will be
accessible to the student at any
time. The assembling of the books

which has become apparent during
the last few years. The experi-

cess led to its adoption at other
large universities throughout the

anywhere else. Here all of the
