MEXICAN CASE UP TO U.S.

HAYWARD AFTER CONSULTATION IN TOPEKA, REFERS SCHOOL ROW BACK TO WASHINGTON

Residents of the Argentine district who have made it difficult for Mexican children in their district to attend the public schools may have action taken against them in the federal courts.

Harry Hayward, county attorney, who returned last night from Topeka where he spent the day in consultation with C. B. Griffith, attorney general, indicated that the final settlement was a matter for federal and not state courts.

Under the recent treaty with Mexico, Hayward declared, the Mexicans must be regarded as friendly aliens and as such extended the same privileges as those enjoyed by American school children.

No record has been found of the treaty having been changed, or exceptions made, and Griffith declared he would take the matter up with Secretary of State Kellogg and recommend that the United States attorney general take action.
