SUSPICIONS AROUSED BY CHARGES AGAINST LCALLES, PAPER SAYS San Antonio, Tax., Dec. 7. Com- menting on the Hearst newspapers' series of special articles in which it is charged that President Catt~s of Mexico has spent great sums of the Mexican people's money for propa- ganda against the United States and in defense of his regime, La Prensa, Mexican paper published here, as- serts that ~he documents have at leas~ creaed a suspicion that Callas has expended the Mexican, nation's money illegally, and that he has done nothing to remove the suspicion. Callas' act, if the charges are ~rue, are particularly bad a~ a time when Mexico faces a financial crisis, is groaning under high taxes, and has even been forced to close down schools for financial reasons, says La Prensa. Following are excerpts from the editorial : ' "Whether the documents ~are au: thentie or not, the fact remains that a suspicion has been created that General CaIles has improperly divert- ed the money of the people to pur- )oses which are not licit, and the Calles Governmen~c has done nothing to eradicate this suspicion, limiting its action to a mere denial of the au- thenticity of the documentfi that have been published. "The Mexican people have a righ~ to know whether or not, as a matter of fact, the funds of the nation are being wasted in projects which are of no concern to the people of Mexico. It is the duty of the Government to deny the charge categorically. Oth- erwise, no one can explain satisfac- torily the conduct of a Chief Execu- tive who, disposing of the public treasury as though it were his own private prope~y, without havin~ by the legislature been specifically au- thorized to do so, exports huge sums for the purpose of fomenting civil war in a sister nation a~d to carry on bolshevistic propaganda in distant lands. "At u emitoner '*At no time, even though our treasury were overflowing with money, would it be permissible to waste the public money in this man- ner and for such purposes. But to- day the Mexican nation is passing through a financial crisis, of which all are victims. Today the people of Mexico are burdened with a load of taxes that is insupportable; an im- mense number of schools have been closed because funds are lacking, and the service of the public debt is be- ing kept up only at the cost of enor- mous sacrifices." CAMOUFLAGED GAS TANKS GREET NEW YORKERS ON THE EAST RIVER A new fashion has appeared for the gas tank. New Yorkers, used to the dull red of tl~ose huge reservoirs that cast their bulky shaaows (in the East River's bank, may well rub their eyes, beholding the giant cylinders of a new race of gas containers detrk- ed out in pastel tints. The artistical- ly camouflaged gas tank is apparent- ly a fixture. This innovation was launched a~ College Point, Flushing, and has been imitated elsewhere. The strol- ler on Main street may glance d~wn the side-street, on. which a .tat~k abuts, without even not~ing that there is any tank there at. all; but if he looks sharply he may observe that the trees have a solid background. The 3,000,000 cubic foot hol4er is one immense patchwork of pastel coIored stripts, one hue never extending more than a few feet in any direction The effect is a harmoniously blended whole that merges into sky in a sur- prisingly inconspicuous way. This is the work not of a contrac- tor called in merely to preserve the holder from the weather, but of an artist who was asked to supply restful and pleasing color scheme- The tank is of a new type, lately introduced from Europe; and the builders considered it worthy of un- usual treatment. The artist designed a dress of blue, purple and purple- blue and devised a pattern indicating: the shading.
