At the continued insistence of Mexican oil workers, President Cardenas finally capitulated and expropriated all foreign petroleum holdings. No sooner was the ink dry on the president's order than the work- era rushed to take physical possession of all oil prop- erties, including office buildings. Just where this new Mexican move is going to lead to. not even Cardenas knows. It looks very much as though he has given the calf too much rope, departed too far toward the Hammer and Sickle rule of Sovietland.

Up until the turn of the present cen- %• tury there was little if any thought given to conserva- tion. It seemed then that our supply was limitless and ivould last forever. Now we realize that we will have to utilize every available means to protect and keep what we have for the present and future. The many protective laws enacted have helped to stem the tide which was wiping out big and small game, 1 ish and fowl. But even such measures can only control the rate at which wildlife is killed.
