Mexico City.-With the elections a L few days off and three candidates in Sthe field for the presidency, there ap ly pass to be no interest. There is no In speechmaking, no parades, no banners Sonly a few posters announcing the sev- a k eral candidates. 'y The newspapers have paid little at- a tention to the approaching elections. , lb printing only occasional deprecatory t articles directed chiefly against the C validity of the candidacy of Frederico Gambos, nomlasted by the Catholic ) party. 9 E There is no reason to expect results of the balloting will be finally decide y until weeks after the elections. The law provides that the ballots must be counted sad the results announced by Congress. There is now no Congress "'' In Mexico and there will be none until snew members are elected coincident 5 with the presidential election.
