MEXICO, closest Latin-American
neighbor to the Unite J
State. Is known In detail to
few residents north of the
Klo Grande. The average American,
familiar enough with Canadian pro
duces, would be hard put to tell wheth

In Mexico also are two territories.
One Is Lower California, dry, arid,
mountainous and thinly populated.
Fifteen hundred miles away from
Lower California lies Mexico's other
territory, Qulntana Roo. farthest south
It is common to think of Mexico as
a great horn sprouting south from
southwest United States. The po
sition of the two Mexican territories
punctures this geographic myth. Mex
ico Is not a thin nation. It Is Just as
wide as It Is long. While Its western
most city Is Tiajuana, over the Inter
national line from San Diego, Calif.,
the outermost point of the Yucatan
peninsula lies as far tst as Indian
spoils. The United States has one smaller
state than Mexico's smallest Rhode
Island Is 300 square miles smaller than
Tlaxcala. which lies 50 miles east of
Mexico City. Colima, a state on the
Faclfic coast of Mexico directly west
of the capital, measures less than Del
aware. Hut the largest state of Mex
ico. Chihuahua, across the border from
New Mexico. Is much smaller than the
American giant. Texas. It approxi

Toluca a Pleasure Resort.
It was by a sign on the railway sta
tion at Toluca that Lindbergh, on his
first flight to Mexico. In 10V.7. finally
found his position, ard then flew dl
rectly Into Mexico Cltj The relations
between Toluca and Mexico City might
be compared roughly to those between
Annapolis and Washington. Tolua Is
the nearest state capital to the fed
eral city, and Its state encloses the
federal district Just as Maryland en
closes the District of Columbia. Phys
ically, however, the comparisons are
not so close. Both Mexico City and
Toluca lie on a high plateau and are
surrounded by mountains. Situated
40 miles from Mexico City. Toluca Is
visited by residents of the capital as
a pleasure resort. If lies In one of
the most beautiful "valleys" of the re
public the Valley of Toluca. From
this upland plain come the spirited
Lulls for the bull rings of Mexico City.
Cotter founded the city 12 years aft
er the Conquest. U lies on part of
the original grant made to the Con
queror by the king of Spain.
The state of Mexico, of which To
luca is the capital, embrace both up
land plains and mountains.
Queretaro, the Delaware of Mexico,
makes up for Its limited areas by the
richness of Its mountains and valleys.
The former contain minerals and the
latter, deep layers of fertile, well-watered
soil which grow pineapples,
dates, bananas, pomegranate, figs,
Indian Names Revived.
The states of Mexico were originally
laid out to coincide roughly with the
areas occupied by the Indian tribes
which the Spaniards conquered. Then
the conquerors apportioned the dis
tricts among themselves. Thus Hern
ando Cortez was "Marques del Vulle"
of Oaxnen. As marques lie laid waste
the Zapotec Indians' chief town, built
a new city on the same Kite and
named It Anlequera. after a town
of Spain near Malaga. When Mexico
won Its independence from Spain, the
city remaned Us old Zapotec name,
Huaxiacac (modilled In Spanish to
Oaxnca) and the state took the name
title. This is a story repeated with
variations many times In Mexico.
Although the ancient Aztecs, ,:ipo
tecs and Mayas are responsible for the
boundaries of modern states of Me.
Ico, the borders often outline definite
geographic units. There Is a classl
licatlon bandy for Mexican states
which our republic cannot use to ad
vantage. In Mexico there are low
Itates, high states and higher states.
(The low states are the eastern sea
tourd units from north to south,
Tamaulipas, N'tievo I,oon. Vera Crui
and Tabasco. The Yucatan peninsula
group of Campeche, Yucatan and
Qulntana Roo also hugs sea level.

roost part, low states, too, but not as
low as east coast states ; Sonora, Nay

Higher States Are Richest.
South of Durango are the higher
states, and. It may be added the small
er, and the most populous and the
richest states of Mexico. The average
elevation of 11 states and the federal
district Is more than a mile above sea
level Orixaba peak, 12 miles south
east of Mexico City, Is the key pin of
a gigantic pair of dividers opened to
a 00-degree angle. Each arm of the
dividers Is a mountain range, the left
arm connecting with the Rocky moun
tains and the right losing Itself at
Between the arms spreads the fer
tile mile-high or higher region of blue
lakes and fruitful valleys, elevated
enough to have an equable climate.
Just as the mountain ranges converge
on Orizaba, so the trade routes con
verge on Mexico City.
Just as the United States has, In the
state of Washington, a commonwealth
named for the hero of Its Revolution,
so Mexico has honored the father of
Its freedom from Spain. Fadre XII
