President Obregon spoke to the
correspondents for air.:,ost two hours
at Chapultepec castle. He appeared
in good health and took occasion to
contradict recent rumors that he was
severely ill by asserting: "It some
times is necessary to become ill in

and that "although the world, per

at ipeace iwith herself for the first

The agrarian iproblem was slowly
