Bill Before Deputies Proposes Ex

Office Tenure iiv Emergencies.

' By the Associated Press.
MEXICO CITY, November B.—A bill
to amend the constitution so that a
provisional President would serve for
the full remainder of the term of
the President he succeeded has been
presented in the Chamber of Deputies
, by Deputy Moises A. Calderon of
Chiapas.
The author explained to the Chamber
that election of a new constitutional
President to take the place of one* who
has “disappeared,” as in the case of
President-elect Obregon, assassinated
last year, subjects the country unneces
sarily to repetition of the unsettled con
ditions that go with an election.
