MORAL INTERVENTION OF THE UNITED STATES WINS IN MEXICO Mexico City, July 2. "I see-the-A tmill woman stood before a chart. a pointer In her hand, facing several ) scor Mexicans, old and young. Thev'j reolted in union, with odd inflect';. "Aye dee the keow." The second battle of Cowpens was on: the enemy in retreat. Moral intervention in Mexico had begun. It was a session of the Knpclish class of the U. S. committee on public information. The three score or more Mexicans wre gently being led into friendship for the Gringo." On the walls hung portraits of Wash ington. Lincoln and Wilson, facing por m fe3JAnnnj J!! If raWV I 1 ft , ' w I II 0 traits of Miguel Hidalgoy Costilla, Ben ito Juarez and Venustiano Carranza. There were no oil cans in the fore ground. They d'ln't chant. "I see the, bullets," but "I see the pense cow." 1 was Impressed with their earnestness and the friendliness with which they spoke to their teacher. "Too bad." the little Mexican-American woman in charge told me. "Eleven hundred Mexicvna come here dally to learn your language. They are poten tial friends. "But we have orders to close th3 Echo-, from the United States! "To bad. Chances are now that they will never learn English, and never be real friends of yours because they cannot understand you." THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL, THURSDAY MORNING, JULY I stepped around the corner to tho French alliance. There a man stood before a black board. "Parlez voua Francaise?" ho wrote. And that group of Mexicans studying French "parlezed" to beat the band. "I suppose the school will soon close, now that the war is over?" I asked the English-speaking Frenchman. "No," he replied, ' We remain open indefinitely. We want Mexican friend ship, and this is the best way to get It.' When they know French they'll like us Trade with Us." The United States was fleeing the field on the verge of a great and in calculably beneficial moral victory. Un cle Sam spiking his own guns! Hun propagandists during the war had kept dinning this at Mexico: "The United States can't fight, will not fight." Then Robert II. Murray, head of the U. S. committee on public in formation here, conceived a brilliant No .Advance In Price! IN5IANTFG is sold at the same ferir price as before the war. Its high Quality is always maintained and its delicious flavor and practical economy make it in creasingly popular. There's a Jessori "papers, Murray established an English school with five capacity classes. With no money except for legitimate display advertising ,of Liberty bond campaigns, and few assistants, he fought the Herman subsidized press to a standstill and a backdown. Mexico's quota on U. S. Liberty loans was oversubscribed more than 100 per cent, a large ntfmber of the bonds being bought by Mexicans. Murray exhibited the U. S. war film, "Pershing'cs Crusaders," at the largest movie house in the capital, at a time when Pershing's popularity in Mexico wasn't exactly high. It took 25 Mexican policemen "o minutes to halt pro-German demon strations in the audience when Persh ing and Old Glory flashed on tho screen. But by the time the last reel unwound, there was nothing but applause. The Germans had packed blocks of the audience, with instruc- (STUM tions to "raise hell." They did. And they got it in turn. They were drag ged into the streets by the police and never returned. Mexico must have been impressed with the campaign, for shortly after ward a queer incident occurred. A woman rowed across the Kio Grande at Laredo one night. She might have walked across the international bridge unmolested. Instead, she even jumped into the water to excite the American sentry's suspicion. Search revealed a waterproof pack et in her corset, a message in code. Deciphered, It proved one of the most important finds of the war, accord ing to American officials. A short time afterward our state department announced interception of the Zimmermann note urging Mexico to war on the United States and of fering as bait parts of California. Tex as, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah. Few outside the American state de partment know how the Zimmermann note was secured, but down along the Rio Grande they're still talking about the woman and her waterproof cor set. The general opinion is that a high Mexican official used his own way of tipping off this Hun plot to the United Stales without. Involving himself.
