P., March 20 (UP) —People In Mexico are considerably mixed In the way they feel about the \vav In Europe. Things were different In 191418. Gen. Vcnustltmo Carranza, In power during most of that period, was pro-German, and so were most of the government officials, generals, and probably the majority of the people who had opinions en Ihe subject. There was, of course, an Important pro-Ally minority,'and some officials resigned their positions because of differences with Carranza on questions cf foreign policy. Today it Is extremely difficult to gauge how the majority of the Mexicans feel on the war question. Some people say that now the majority Is pro-Ally; others that pro- German sentiment is really much stronger than one realizes. One person put It lluis: one-third does not care; one-'third is pro-German, and one-third is pro-Ally. At any rate, these observations wiil show (hat there is no overwhelmingly preponderant feeling in favor of either side. German Sympathies Old •Germany always has had many sympathies in Mexico. The German Immigrant—rich or poor— generally has been very adaptable; often he marries a Mexican woman; does not keep himself aloof, or consider himself on :i plane above the Mexicans. Furthermore, .Mexicans generally have admiration for German efficiency, anc| Ihe German military machine. Many people who were pro-German in 1D14-19 may have unconsciously been so because of their Iv.iving been impressed by Ihe snappy naval contingent of Germany which paraded in Mexico City during the Centennial of Independence celebrations in 1910. During (he Spanish Civil War the Mexican government was pro- Loyalist, but the majority of the white-collar people \vere pro- Franco, so that Iliat period was a fertile one for German propaganda in Mexico, as Adolf Hitler was one of Franco's principal supporters. It was considered significant, for example, that Mexico City's one anti-Jewish 'riot should have occurred in connection with the Nationalists' celebration of the fall of Barcelona (January, 1039). The uerman colony In Mexico Is an important one. In Chiapas Germans control most of the cot- fee business (just as they do In Guatemala just across the Chiapas border). Throughout the republic they control the wholesale drug business, hardware store.? and import houses. In peacetimes, | where they have been vacationing the Hamburg-American Line ships 1 tor the past ten days. Mr. Hulf- plied between Vera Cruz, Tampico man remained in" Hot Springs for and Hambui'g. Some Magazines Anti-Ally Tlie German legation for many years has maintained a "press at- tache"—a post which no other embassy or legation has. This of? fice has worked efficiently. Most of the Mexican magazines and a few of the newspapers arc pro- German. Included among the weeklies Is the new one, Tlmon "(The Rudder), edited by Jose Vasconcelos, defeated candidate for president of Mexico in 1030. which frankly announces itself as "anti- Anglo-Saxon." Another thing which has helped pro-German sentiment in Mexico is the Nazi-Communist tie-up. Various German Communist and Socialist exiles resident in Mexico formerly were active in anti-Hitler propaganda work, through such mediums as tlie "League of German Culture." Now that organization is loin by dissension. El Popular, the pro-Soviet daily, gets most of its news from Berlin and Moscow, and has ceased all aiiti- Kict.i attacks which characterized H six months ago. T here Is considerable pro- French sentiment in Mexico. Ntwsrecls showing French troops probably get more applause than any others in Mexico Ci|y. Most of the Mexican writers'and artists consider Paris the ."spiritual capital" ol the Latins. Mexico also has an important French tradition, dating to the days when Ihe French troops kept Maximilian and Cnrlotta on the throne. Communist I'arty Active Tlie invasion of Finland by Soviet Russia has Increased the pro- Ally sentiment, it seems. Nevertheless, Russia has wide support .among the organized masses of Mexico. Tlie Mexican Communist Party, though compri'.ed of probably cnly 25,GtO members, is active and occupies key 'positions. Furthermore, it is now reinforced by important foreign elements. Great Britain probably has less Mippcrt in Mexico than any of the other warring nations. The war broke out at a time when Mexican and BrltisJi diplomatic relations were "in suspense." Britain In March, 1938, became angry over the expropriation of the Royal Dutch Shell's subsidiary — the "Mexican Eagle"—and demanded i hat President Cardenas give llin J pvopcrlles back. Cardenas paW no attention to these protasis.
