. W1KF THE SIDEWALKS SAFE
Several persons were Injured last
wintpr in Columbia from falls on icy
sidewalks. The City Council has
therefore passed an ordinance requir
ing owners of lots to have the snow
and Ice shoveled off the walks. This
ordinance is all the more timely in
view of the fact that some of the vo
cational students in the University
have not entirely recovered from their
wounds. An awkward slip might
mean another trip to the hospital.
651 AMERICANS WEKE KILLED
Manv well-meaning Americans,
Jealous of our national honor, will
pounce on the statement that 551
Americans have been killed in Mex
ico since November 20, 1910, as justi
fication for intervention, not reflect
ing that 'most of these homicides
would have occurred even though
Mexico had been on the most friend
ly terms with the United States.
It is difficult to credit the National
Association for the Protection of
American Rights in Mexico with a de
sire to help make truth prevail in its
untimely publishing of such figures at
this Juncture of strained relations be
tween Mexico and the United States.
Too many persons will see only one
fact that 551 Americans have been
killed by Mexicans; the statement
should have been accompanied by an
explanation of border conditions of
Northern Mexico, a potentially rich
region of developing mines and
ranches, is a frontier country; and
frontier living conditions Involve fre
quent killings. The first graveyards
in the old West were filled mostly by
men who died with their boots on.
The drinking and gambling attend
ant on the rush of miners and cattle
men into Mexico men away- from
their mothers, wives and sisters, and
tempted by the opportunities for
smuggling, kidnapping and robbing in
a shifting and inchoate society all
these factors will explain a , large
"share of TfiTr-SSl hnmirides. Tn hlnmi
the Mexican government for thee
deaths is as unfair as -iroUHag the
United States government responsible
for the large number of negroes killed
by whites, not to count the lynchings.
