The Calles Government in Mexico is by no means stable,
and if arms were allowed to pour across the frontier the Calles Government--living, as it does, in the presence of a revolutionary party of increasing strength—would find itself quite unable to argue with Washington. The State Department allowed itself for a time to be checked in its " imperialistic " policy by popular criticism. The Repub: lies of Central America enjoyed much more sympathy than Mexico, it is true, but the American policy towards both was really one policy. Now Congress is not sitting, and the State Department seems to be moving forward again. It will be interesting to sec how popular opinion shapes.
