fHE NEWS SCIMITAR. U. S, READY 10 RECOGN IZE NEW MEXICAN REGIME Prominent "Bud" Mn Navy, Circles T Moving Pictures Lyceum. i For First Time in Decade :' Southern Republic Has Government Which Realizes Necessity of Friendship. -BY DAVID LAWRENCE, . (Special Correspondent of The New Scimitar.) WASHINGTON, Npv. 22. The United States government stands ready to recognize the government of Mexico over which President-elect Alvard" Obregon will rule next month, provided the legal questions "pending, between the two govern ments can be satisfactorily adjusted. For the "first time in more than a decade a government has arlBen in Mexico, which appears to realize fully the necessity of co-operation with the United States, but public, opin ion below the Rio Grande is itill as sensitive about any attitude that might seem cringing, or suppliant. This account for the official state ments Insisting that Mexictf can not afford to accept any recognition which has conditions attached to it. Naturally, the American government has no desire to impose conditions as such; Moreover the t. Washington administration realizes that Ameri can public opinion will not 4e satis fied with mere promises and that actual performance is necessary. Some start must 'be made toward the settlement ,ot Spending difficulties and when enough action has been tnlmn- V. . . V. VTvtrtrm irmronTi til on f tn warrant a belief that the polaW which the United States wishes cleared up will be eventually settled, then recognition will be gladly ex tended, r . There is some suggestion that the Blew Mexican government is trying to play as between the Wilson and the Harding administrations. There are those who are counselling Mex-4 ico that other terms will be secured from the Republicans than the Dem ocrats. In,1912 practically the same situation existed. Secretary Knox was ready to recognize the Huerta government but wanted the Chami aal dispute about boundaries in Tex as settled.; The Mexicans got the idea that they would get recognition easier if they delayed beyond March 4. but they were sadlv mistaken, be cause Mr. Wilson refused absolutely to i recognize Huerta on other grounds. It so happens that among the friends of Senator Harding are many who believe military intervention alone will solve the Mexican ques tlon. There are others who have a feeling that recognition of the Obre gon government will mean a new era of peace -and prosperity with our Southern neighbor, yeti if the ques tion is left to be taken up after March 4 it will be the first step in the assumption of responsibility for Mexican affairs on the part of the new Washington administration. Any action, on the other hand, by the Wilson regime will still be charged ' up to Wilsonian policy. Under that line of reasoning some of 'Harding's friends hope the problem will not be on the White House doorstep after March 2. Unquestionably there are some In terests which are . counselling , the Mexicans to delay "ia settlement be- . yunu juurcu ucrnunu wie inicicota ' fealty believe military intervention can best be brought under a Re publican administration. Our state department is aware of some of these subtle processes which are not at all friendly either to what ia be lieved to be the real desire of a man like President-elect Harding. On the trip to the southern border the dispatches have conveyed the im pression that Mr. Harding, too, wants an amlcahle settlement of disputes with Mexico. ' President Wilson's viewpoint mrougnoui me last eignt years nas beerv that eventually the Mexicans waolld themselves straighten out their affair and that the chaos of revolution was not likely to be re moved In a decade as witness the slow processes by which Russia is -, struggling for self-possesslort. There is no doubt that the present occu pant of the White House would like to round out 'his term with Mexioan problems on the road to settlement Men who are planning new business 1 enterprises and development are waiting, moreover, for the act of rec. ognition. Nevertheless, the depart ment of state is firm in Its determi nation that something better than promises must be forthcoming this time before recognition is extended If tho Mexicans are misled into thinking they can get easier terms with the next administration in -Washington especially when It prob ably wll take a long time before the Harding administration will be ready to tackle Mexican matters on ac count of the press of other ques tions, the disposition here is to let the Mexicans who advise such a course bear tlto Consequences. The whole thing is up to the Mexicans. There are no insuperable obstacles. (Copyright, 1920, by David Law- rence.) juNiok b:y. p. u. opens FIRST TRAINING SCHOOL i , i s ' ., ' S V 1 - I 4 A i.
