(Continued from cage one.) sidered act might, however, upset all calculations. The most dangerous element per hen* is the bitter feeling against Luis Morones. resigned secretary of labor, by some of the Obregon group. There have been promiscuous charges that Morones and his labor ite aids created a “psychological background" by their opposition to Obregon which made his assassina tion possible. Well informed observers, however, saw prospects that Mexico would emerge peacefully from the present turbulent political situation. Those who conferred on the presi dential question included Aurelio Manrique and Antonio Soto Y Gama, agrarian leaders, and Ricardo To pete, leader of the Obregon bloc, which controls cjngress. It seemed probable that either President Calles would be asked to succeed himself as provisional pres ident under certain constitutional arrangements which might be made or that Aaron Saenz, governor of Nuevo Leon, would be favored.
