When Dwight Morrow left Cuer-
navaca for the last time and the
quaint Mexican home he had built
and joyously lived in, every week-
end during his stay in Mexico hun-
dreds of children crowded the lit-
tle cobble street to wave to him
and call “Adiosito, Embajador!”

Just as few diplomats have so
won the confidence and affection of
the statesmen of a country as did
Dwight W. Morrow when he repre-
sented the United States in the
country tc the south, so have few
diplomats won, also, the children of
a country.
The story is told in a recent ar.
ticle in the American Mercury writ-
ten by Mrs. Morrow. First she
told of their Cuernavaca home on a
street which “runs from a pink
church on a hill to a pink sunset on
a mountain”—a house built on land
“that sloped away on six levels with
seven gardens of green loveliness
and running water.”
The house followed the line of the
seven little gardens. Building it
“was an experience comparable with
marrying or having children in the
scope it gave for imagination and
Directly across the street was a
vecindad or community house oc-
cupied by the families of a carpen-
ter, a charcoal dealer, a grocer, a
cobbler and a tailor. The Morrows
noticed that the many children of
these families, playing day after day
in the street, had no toys exceptan
an old ball and bead strings made of
gray seeds, known locally as “the,
tears of Job.”
So, cn the last day they were in
Cuernavaca, the Morrows “made a
little fiesta and gave out toys to
the children in the street.”
“Our _ unofficial scouts told us
there were about 30 little boys and
girls in the neighborhood,” Mrs
Morrow wrote. “We bought 100
toys, and 150 children came, be-
sides accompanying mothers

| “We had the presents laid on the

and I gave them out as fast as we

| Warning to motorists that the

was sounded by the P vania
| Motor Federation, State unit of the

following arrests in various of

violation of the new provision, but
who pleaded ignorance of this
' change.
| Section 1008 of the code, accord-
'ing to the Federation, has been
‘amended making it unlawful for the
‘driver of a vehicle to overtake and
or attempt to pass any other
vehicle proceeding in the same di-
rection between any pcints indicated
by the placing of temporary warn-
ing or caution signs indicating that
men are working on the highway. |
The Federation also called atten-
tion to an amendment to Section 3
1008 of the vehicle code that gives
drivers more leeway in passing oth-
er cars in highways having two or
more lanes for movement of traffic
in one direction. This section has
been amended permitting the driver
to overtake and pass any other ve-
hicle proceeding in the same direc-
tion at any railway grade crossing
or at an intersection of highways

lanes for movement of traffic in one

Section 1009 has been amended
making it unlawful for the operator
of a motor vehicle to drive upon or ?
cross the car tracks within an inter-
section in front of a street car when
the street car has started to cross
the intersection. This provision, ac-
cording to the Federation, is being
violated in many instances because
