Says That Diaz Regime Infringe-
ments of Indians' Rights Were
Initial Causes of"Outbreaks
speaking yesterday afternoon on
the subject, 'The Influence of the
Mexican Revolution on Private
Property," Dr. Frank Tannenbaum,
of the Brookings institute, Wash-
ington, D.' C., summarized his lec-
ture by stating that, the Mexican
revolution, embodying the agrarian
movement as its basic force, had
formulated ideas about land own-
ership which were different from
any, other known concepts.
"The Mexican revolution had no
definite plan," said Dr. Tannen-
baum, "the revolutionists had
merely a set of grievances." The
objection was raised against the
infringements of the Diaz regime
on the personal rights of the na-
tive Indians, and they resisted. The
primary motives of the revolution
were political, not social. The re-
volution was not fought by large
armies. "In its beginning it was
only a popular uprising of indi-
vidual groups here and there under
local leadership."
The revolution had no organi-
zation; it was not fought with large
armies, nor trained troups. The
natives used clubs and knives for
weapons. During this time, indi-
vidual leaders issued plans for the
government of their own partic-
ular territories. In 1917 these var-
ious revolutionary leaders met at
a convention and drew up a con-
stitution, which was immediately
With but the exgeption of two
articles, this constitution did not
differ in any respect from other
similar documents. However, the
two excepted articles provided for
an entirely new concept of land
ownership. An extremely compli-
cated set of limitations was placed
upon property ownership, result-
ing in conditions peculiar to Mex-'
ico alone.

for so conditioning property own.

tem is to provide a property con-

The University observatory por-
tals have been thrown open to the
summer students who wish to in-
spect that institution. Due to the
fact that each visitor must have
time to look through the large tel-
escope only a limited number of
persons may be shown through
each evening. Capacity crowds of
over 150 were on hand both Mon-
day and Tuesday. It is expected
that fully .as many students will
be visitors this evening, for it willI
be the last visiting night for this
summer. Tickets have been obtain-
ed at the office of the dean of the
Summer Session.
The first instrument shown to
the visitors is the radian circle,
consisting of a telescope pivoted to
swing in a vertical plane. It is the
same type as that'used in the na-
val observatory, its purpose being
to determine the correct time from
the sun. The University clocks,
however, are-corrected by radio sig-
n0ls sent out every noon, or the
beginning of the astronomical day.
In the seismograph room, one
of those delicate earthquake re-
cording machines has been set up.
It is connected with the clock sys-
tem in such a way that the exact

ry has been set aside for photo-
graphs taken through large tele-
scopes. Here may be found pic-
tures of comets, total eclipses, dou-
ble stars, sun spots, sun clusters,
nebula, etc. The Observatory's 37
1-2 inch reflecting telescope has
been used in taking a great many
photographs. Much of the research
work conducted in the Observa-
tory has to do with the velocity of
stars and eclipsing stars. Twen-'
ty-two small planets have been
discovered. There is also a branch
observatory in Africa which has a
very creditable record of research.
Probably the part of the Obser-
vatory most interesting to the visi-
tor is that housing the 12 inch re-
fractor telescope. This telescope,
was built in the Michigan engineer-
ing shops in 1911 at a cost of $24,-
000. Each person is given a chance
to view the moon through it. The
mountains which he sees are al-
most as high as those on the earth.
As there is no air or water on the
moon, its details stand out quite
sharply. After looking at the moon
through the telescope, people often
remark that it looks moth-eaten or
as though it had the measles. Prac-
tically everyone asks about the
driving clock, or mechanism that
keeps the telescope trained upon

scool buildings.
