PAUATKADAUJNEm Saturday Morningfi November rn MFIHTES HILL mm " IP TABLISH COLONY TO GO ES 10 El Taso, Texas, Nov. 18 One of the largest migrations of Christian people of modern history is that of about 200,001) Mennonites, 50,000 families, from Canada to Mexico, which will begin in December. Their tr.k is expected to last two years. The Mennonites for the past year have been looking for a new home, Maimlmr unjust treatment in Canada during the world war. tight na tions have invited them. Land "sharps," "boomers" and others have tried to influence them. After a dozen trips to Mexico, uu ring which representatives conferred with President Alvaro Obrcgon and .officials of the Mexican immigration service the leaders almost decided to settle in Mexico. Then editorials .from various sources, save Mexican, declared the Mennonites were "mak ing a mistake" that religious free .i ...l,;,.!, iliev have sought could not be guaranteed them under the Mexican constitution. Another trip was made to Mexico and state and national governments assured th Mennonites that they could worship rA tw pleased, that they could hold all the tenets of their religion i 1.1 that, country and ana cuiwu w- - i-n tVw.ir permanent home. Canadian Mennonites noui i same belief as early members of the sect who settled in the United States that of non-resistance. The Men nonites, in defending their belief, de i,o,l that thev suffered less in the ,carly (lays at the hands of the In dians than did others wno wag warfare against the savages. The Mennonites still refuse to en ter tny war. Another peculiar custom of these people is the washing of feet. They say that the command of Christ to the woman to wash His feet stands on the same sipirtual level as His acts of distributing food and drink to the hungry and thirsty. To the Mennonites the story related by St. Luke is comparable to the ones other Christians regard, including the sac rament and communion. Community property is another be lief of some Mennonites, although it is not general. The members of the sect cooperate in building roads, school houses and churches. The removal of the Cennonites to America came aDoui wnen nimam Tpnn had been granted land for his Quaker followers. He was told of Mennonites who had fled from Ger many to Holland and his Quakers came to their aid. The Quakers are credited with helping them financial ly and in colonizing parts of Ohio, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska and So. Dakota. Later, colonies were es tablished in Saskatchewan and other parts of Canada. During the past year a few of the sect have settled in Florida. For manv years there were 14 in- .i..n..rwin l,r,lies of M c n non i tc s , but years ago the sect was reunited. The Mennonites will settle in Chi huahua and Durango, principally in the former state.

Since T,,lv 1fi the crown has dropped from 650 to the American dollar to aDoui inno. The 100 crown note, whose nro.war value was $20, is now about the minimum unit of daily use, and 10,000 crown notes cannot be printed fast enough to meet the needs of bus iness. For the last month the govern ment presses have been printing some 5,000,000,000 kronen a week to ,o.f rnrrent exDenses. The issue will have to beincreased to meet the demands of the great army of civil .servants for a living wage. Within a month they have received increases amounting to about 5,000,000.000 kronen and already, witn steacmy fnllinc exchange and the equally steady advance in living costs, they nm formulating new demands.
