Aero Club President Scores
In a recent letter to the Beroetary of
War, Alan R. Hawley, president of the
Aero Club of America, states that the
aviation section of the United states
army does not want an Increase of
American aviators, nor for the National
Guard to have training In this branch of
work, and he adds that the plans to or
ganize the Aerial Reserve Corps, author
ized by President Wilson last July, have
not been carried out.
Mr. Hawley also alleges that the only
aero squadron now in service is one only
suited to meet an emergency and that
instead of establishing ten aviation
schools, which are needed, we are only
planning for three.
"We have but half a dozen instructors."
says President Hawley, "when there Is
need for sixty, and the corps of inspec
tors are ignorant of the first principles
of aeronautics. These conditions have
disgusted hundreds of workers and volun
teers for the national defense and dissi
years' work.
Although the army has .13,2I.6W6 to
spend in aeronautics, there are no im
Imediate prospects of its getting a sub
stantial air service."
In conclusion Mr. Hawley says:
"The country is tired of vague rumors
land promises-It now demands evidence
of action. We are asked many times
daily what there is being done to train

have each between 2.0 and 6,000 aviators.

(my the Internatioaal News SerieM.)
New York, Oct. 6.-The "truth about
Mexico" was given tonight in a Republi
can campaign speech made by United
States Senator Albert B. Fall. of New
Mexico. Before a gathering in Common
wealth Auditorium he bitterly assailed
President Wilson for his policy in the
revolution-torn republic.
Senator Fall vividly descrihed terrible
conditions now existing in Mexico. He
read several heretofore unpublished docu
ments and indicted the administration on
all sides for its inaction.
Senator Fall replied to President Wil
son's charges that American citizens with
large Interests in Mexico are trying to
force Intervention to protect or enhance
their holding&.
"The only possible enhancement of
value would be by annexation of Mexico
Ito the United States," he said. "and I
1have heard nobody interested in Mexico
demand annexation of that country or
any portion of it.
'lEvery American who really knows
anything of the true conditions in Mexico
knows that Carranza's absolutism, de
s;-ite Wilson's suport, is tottering to a
"very such American. or other person
unoderstanding the true conditions in
Mexico, believes that the only object in

behind the so-called 'mediation' is and
will be a 'stall' until after election on
