The employer is required to supply good homes at low rent, schools, hospitals, industrial accident compensation and death indemnity. Employers must pay thhe strikers during a strike—providing the strike is a lawful one. That constitution is a peon's jackpot. It is a knock-'em-deader. Company Profits Wgti? The oil workers consistently received the highest wages in Mexico, but continued asking more—phtting on a big load of demands in 1936. In additional to blanket pay' increases, they wanted, for instance, double pay for working in the rain or on oily ground. A Mexican board of experts asserted that the companies could pay more than they admitted. The board accused British companies of siphoning . profits Into Canadian companies. CompaTiy compromise offers failed. Expropriation -followed. There isn't enough- free money in Mexico to pay for the oil company investments unless th most xtreme of Mexico U> pay for the oilicompany investments unless the most extrem of Mexican views is accepted. That is that th companies already have earned many times what they have invested, so that little or nothing is owed for the costly plants. Since exporopriation in 1938 all sorts of applications have arisen. Mexico isnT having too much success operating the wells. American and British •efineries buy little Mexican oil.

Poland's store of military supplies, ! icr industrial capacity and the techn- cal skill and organizating ability of nor leaders are not rated in the same class with those of Germany. Germans Have Prepared For six years the Germans have been utilizing their technical talent and traditional Teutonic thoroughness in the mass production of up-lo-thc- minutc machine guns, medium and heavy artillery, tanks, anti-tank guns, anti-aircraft artillery and motor transport. The Poles have some good modern weapons, small arms and artillery featuring (he French 75 of world re- now. But, generally, her medium and big cannon is not rated as good as the German equipment. Already mobilized are some 1,750,000 German soldiers to 5000,000 Poles. The trained Gorman reserves number 2,500,000; the Polish reserves, 1,000,000. Hitler probably could put in(o the field in a short lime more than 2,500,000 fully-equipped soldiers. Poland, it is believer, has only enough equipment for an army of 1,000,000 at Ihc most. Unfortified Borders Germany's 14,000 planes includes from 4,000 to 6,000 line aircraft. The Poles have an estimated .'{00 lo .100 first-liners. The tremendous dispartiy would virtually assure complete control of the air by the Germans in a short time. 1-oland has some fairly strong fortifications along those sections of her border which face old Germany. German domination of Czechoslovakia, however, provides new avenues of advance upon relatively unfortified .sections of Poland. scrvativc. There were other reasons! for the change as well.

In Mexico, cn.o.'crv.itiyo voices arc j asserting that socialization of the conn- ! try under President Cardenas has proceeded too far for the present, j Now is lime for consolidation of gains The same thing lute been said fur .several years of the New Deal. In the United States the suggestion is advanced thaat a change of administration in 1941 may bring a change in our ;illilucie toward Mexico Some hardening might be expected. A shift in the U.

SJmrlly after its adoption in 1917 there was a disposition to advance forcefully toward its objectives, to make big estates into little ones for division among the peons, and to take for the government a greater share of the revenue from natural resources. (Mexico's newest and biggest oil field, for instance, had to pay 35 to 35 per cent government royality.)
