TENSION EASED INTAMAULIPAS Villareal Overthrow Goal of Peasants' Uprising in Mexican State. MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas Mex., July 25. (1P -- Tension created by the agrarian uprising in the state of Tamaulipas was believed eased today, although Gov. Rafael Villarreal was reported still unoer fire. A force of approximately 2.000 peasants which bad besieged this border city for two days in an effort to force resignation of city officials disbanded late yesterday. This move, coupled with word from Mexico City that President Cardenas had promised a full investigation of complaints against the governor, was reported to have eased the tense situation throughout the state. Opposed by Peasants. Villarreal. subject of bitter peasant opposition which ousted one governor and threatened several city administrators, expressed the belief that he would be able to ''dominate the situation." He expressed his faith last night at Tampico where thousands of workers and peasants demand his removal. The Tampico municipal council also had asked the governor's removal on grounds it was unable to work with him. The agrarians who had threat- ened to use force in evicting Mayor Rafael Mungia C. of Matarnoros and other city officials started disbanding after federal troops and city police deployed about the administration building. Under Military Control. Tabasco was reported orderly after the state was placed under semi-military control. Gen. Aureo Calles was sworn in as substitute governor of Tabasco. Reports from Mexico City sources said peasants had overthrown municipal councils in nearly a score of towns in the state of Tamaulipas and had forced 14 others to withdraw their recognition of Villarreal as governor.
