Belief Prevaih Mexican News
paper Men Will Mould Opinion
VASHINOTON, .Tune 2S (Associate-!
Press) The present tour of near
ly one hundred Mexican newspaper edi
tors through the I'nited Stntes is re
garded by American officials In touch
with Latin American atfairs as far
more important than it may . seem to
the casual render. It is one of the
steps which it in hoped may thwart the
Oermnn propaganda in Mexico and de
feat the sinister effort to align the re
public south of the Bio Grande against
the i'nited States.
President Wilson openly recognir.e.l
this factor when he addressed the edi
tors in private-audience at the White
House and then insisted that his speech
should Jlrst be read by the Mexican
people before it was printed in the
newspapers of the United States.
"The stories of Oermnn atrocities
in Belgium," said one of the Ameri
can officials in touch with I Jit in affaire,
"do not seriously disturb the average
"Of course, the better classes, those
more highly educated, have the same
feeling regarding the treatment of Bel
gium as the rest of the oivilixed world,
hot this class ia comparatively small.
The greater part of the Mexican people
have seen so much horror in recent
revolutions that another horror has
little effect upon them.
"The Germnns in Mexico have per-.sit-tently
impressed npon the Mexicans
that German efficiency and forehanded
neas, as well as German valor, are go
ing to win tho war. Kvery slight vic
tory 1s immensely magnified when relat
ed to the Mexicans. An example of
this was shown when the pro-Oerman
press in Mexico reported the sinking
of sixteen American battleships off our
coast recently by I boats when, as a
matter of fact,. few coasting vessels
only were sunk.
"The Mexican editors are sending
back to their papers stories telling
something of what the Tutted States
is doing to win the war. These stories
cannot fail to impress the readers, as
the Mexican likes above all a win
ner. The visitors have seen many
things that very few Americans have
seen; the wonderful work of our ship
yards, munition plants and big gun
wurks. T,hey are more and more im
pressed not only with the fact that
the I'liited States is in the war to win
but with the fact that the Allies with
the help of the I'nited States will sure
ly win the war.
"This is the message the Mexican
editors are sending bark to Mexico
daily thrit tiermuiiy is doomed. They
fully appreciate the fact that the
Tinted States has not yet reached her
maximum of productiveness either of
mou or materials and that the deter
minntion'of this country to make the
world safe for democracy is unsliak
able. And they realize tfint when the
war is over the I'nite.l States will
have a tremendous trained army.
"This visit of editors from our sis
ter republic is nf supreme importance
at this time when the Germans in their
country have control of a large por
I inn of the press and are doing their
utmost to create trouble of a serious
nature between the two countries."
