MEXICO AND THE MEXICANS
An Interesting Story of Mexico Illustrated with Slides and Motion Pictures
Whether viewed from the standpoint of its past, or present, or contemplated from the standpoint of its future, Mexico is the question mark of the western hemisphere. As our nearest neighbor on the south and as the scene of our greatest investment in the foreign field, the political, economic and sociological status of Mexico is of the greatest importance to Americans. In addition to its political and economic significance, Mexico is a land of extreme interest to the traveler.
Seat of Ancient Civilizations
It was the seat of the ancient Indian Civilizations of the Maya, the Toltec and the Aztec, and contains numerous fine groups of ruins testifying to the remarkable degree of civilization attained by these peoples prior to the coming of the Spaniards in 1519. The nine million pure blooded Indians of Mexico are the descendants of these ancient civilizers, but almost four hundred years of oppression have turned them back to the point where civilizaion rests on them only as a veneer. The betterment of these people is Mexico's greatest problem. In fact the uplifting of these people is The Mexican Question. The cities of Mexico, with their reminders of colonial New Spain, are not only interesting but surprisingly beautiful. The magnificent capital with a population of nearly a million is a revelation to the most of us.

A Thrilling Story of Our Occupation in Nicaragua Illustrated With Motion Pictures and Stills
ADVENTURING IN NICARAGUA
The Spring of 1928 again saw Capt. Sawders headed southward, this time to join the Marines in Nicaragua as the special correspondent of The Newspaper Enterprise Association. This work took him, with the Marines, into the bandit-infested jungles of our turbulent southern neighbor, and also over the route of the proposed Nicaraguan ship canal. A large portion of this journey was made by airplane, by the courtesy of the United States Marine Corps.
His articles, and particularly his pictures, have appeared in many of America's leading newspapers and magazines.
He is an excellent speaker and story teller.
