Mexican Exposition
to Be Held in 1922
MEXICO CITY. Mexico, Oct. 6.—Plans
for Mexico's International Exposition
are assuming definite shape.
It has been decided to.hold the ex
position in 1922 instead of 1921, so as
to give more time for the erection of
the buildings and the preparatory work.
The year 1922 also glvea opportunity
for the celebration of the 100th anniver
sary of an event In Mexican history.
It was in 1822 that Spain first recog
nized the independence of Mexico.
Mexico’s great year was 1810, when
the fight for Independence was begun,
but as 1910 is a thing of the past, the
exposition must accep.t the next liest
thing.for centennial use.
It is believed that there will be ex
hibitors from all over the wv>Yld and
especially from the United States.
A number of ’exposition experts" are
In the field for the job of telling how
great expositions should bt managed.
