AUTO RACE MAN MEXICAN MAJOR Gaston Morris, French Driver at Speedway Races Here, Returns After Six Months as Carranza's Chief of Automobiles. SEES ENMITY TOWARD U. S. Traveler Declares Natives of Southern Republic Consider Villa a Hero and Believe They Can Whip Uncle Sam. CJaston Morris, the French race driver and pit manager, who has been a familiar figure at Speedway races here as manager of the British Sunbeam team and others, has returned to Indianapolis in a new rolei ' Gaston now is MaJ, G. Morris of the de facto Mexican government, chief of the automobile squadron of the Carranza army and private driver of Gen. Obregon, 'minister of yf of Mexico. Six months spent on ,the battle fields of the southern republic, Including a visit to - Columbus, N. M., the day after Villa's raid, and chases after the bandit leader, Zapata, and the other foes of the Carranza government under the personal supervision of the ^new military genius of the country,.. Obregon, has given Morris an unusual opportunity to learn the Intricate workings of the Mexican mind and the Mexican-American situation. Morris is here for the Speedway races this month. Mexicans AreTJeffant. "Wai- with the United . States would not cause a feeling of terror and uneasiness in Mexico," said Maj Morris. "We know, of course, that we could conquer Mexico, although it would require a much bigger force than we now have, but, the Mexicans are absolutely confident that they could lick Uncle Sam. The Mexicans realize, that we could take the border and coast towns, but they thiilk than 150 miles into the interior. Morris doubts whether the American troops, unless greatly , reinforced, could ever catch Yilla. Carranza soldiers, familiar witli the country and hardened to its discomforts, might catch Villa,- though Morris nays they have not tried very, hard. Villa, he says, Is a hero with many of the Mexicans of the Interior, just like George Washington is to people "of the United , States, and for this reason the bandit is able to obtain, protection from the natives and elude capture. Morris Is much interested In the newspaper deports of the conferences being conducted at this time between Gen. Obregon and the American army officers. He "predicts that Obregon will stand pat on his demand that American troops withdraw to the border. Obregon, who has been shy an arm since the battle against Villa at Celaya, is unable to speak Kngllsh, according to Morris, and can speak to Americans only through an Interpreter. Morris is of French birth and .speaks both French and Spanish. He is a naturalised American, but he carefully concealed that fact while in Mexico. Border Seeks Intervention. 'Th°e demand for American intervention is strong In Texas and Morris says he can not see how the Mexican situation can be ironed out satisfactorily without there being a serious clash between the United States and Mexico. "The Mexicans have had so much war that war with the United states would not frighten them," said Morris. "They are used to killing each other and war seems to have, no horror -for them. The Mexicans ' believe that Germany would -helri them in-easo-Trf-rwaT^ritrrthij-UnrteTr States and this belief gives them confidence that they could whip us. As a matter of fact Mexico has more soldiers than the United ^States and they are not lacking in equipment, even to machine guns, which greatly outnumber ours. A munition factory now is in operation in. the City of Mexico. : "The belief is prevalent along the border that Germany has. had much to do with fermenting trouble between, the United States aiid Mexico. It is noticeable everywhere that the Mexicans are friendly with all Germans. In Chihuahua, for instance, the Germans are permitted to operate their stores while the American and 1 French stores, because of the danger, have been closed." Morris predicts that pbregon will become President of Mexico when the next election .is held. Obregon, he says, is considered to be a much stronger figure' than President Carranza, whom all call a figurehead. How He Got Job. "Gen. Obregon Is a good fellow and I enjoyed my experiences with him, though I 'finally left Mexico because I believed it would be. better for my health in' the United States," continued Morris. "He treated me fine. I first met him in El Paso, where I had been told that, he wanted a speedy driver. I told his agent that speed was my middle name and he gave me the job. I drove Obregon's car' and had charge of the twenty cars used by his staff, which always accompanied him," ' _ ·' In Hermosillo, Sonora, Morris paid $8 for a shoe shine and $20 for a seat at the theater, but it was the Carranza currency, greatly depreciated in value, which he used. He paid as much as $3, Carranza-morieyT-for-ar dish-of --Ice-cream-.HIGH DIVER AT MERCHANTS' SHOW DIVES DESPITE RAIN The high diver employed 'by the Vir- Fountain Square SWHRBM^ Charles Mayer Go's.
