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

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

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

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. Options have been
taken on land in both states and im
provements are being made on one

money being on deposit to the credit

land owner, Carlos Zuloa
The purchase price is 000,000 pseos.

Vienna, Nov. 18 With the collapse
in the exchange value of the kronen,
Austria is undergoing another eco
nomic and financial spasm. 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
