There's a possibility that these Spanish bred people referred to are naturally quarrelsome people and prefer strife and discord to peace and happiness but this I doubt very seriously. I am inclined to believe that a Chinaman, desiring to eat rats and worship Mohammed, if left alone to pursue this course, makes a very good and valuable Chinese citizen but I may be entirely wrong and it's possible that this same Chinaman should be taught better, educated and made a Christian by us, whose robes are whiter (We'think). I fully realize that some human beings with whom we come in contact daily, are more inclined to be trouble makers than others and seem to desire to gossip and stir up strife continually, but as they are exceptions, the average human is the one we have in mind of all the many races and nations. This is a very important question today, Pete, for it's correct answer and full understanding would have a very important bearing on thc question of wars between nations, a thing that seem to have a growing tendency right now and has been in vogue a long time past. It seems to me that a Chinaman should be left alone to live a Chinaman's life, unmolested by foreign Democratic or Christian missionaries and the same is true of every other race and nation of people of the world. So, Pete, will you kindly make a few comments j guc on this subject, which, I am sure j Univ. will be very interesting to me as j Richard well as thc readers of, this column, j Senior Boys Declamation.

At the time of the accident, about 10:45 Thursday morning, Ronnie was in his class room at W. M. White elementary school. He was immediately taken to a local hos- j pital for treatment by his class teacher, A. B. McBay. It was reported that another student had found the cap at an excavation at Tehuacana and brought it to school with him Thursday morning. • Authorities at the hospital reported Thursday afternoon that the young boy was resting nicely.
