Description: 

Five-page telegram from the Mexican Consulate in Kansas City, Missouri to Governor Jonathan M. Davis in Topeka, Kansas. The consul expresses concern over a report of four Mexican boys being barred from the Major Hudson School in the Rosedale community of Kansas City, Kansas, because other students threaten to stop attending classes if the Mexican children are allowed to attend. He says a mob of two hundred children and adults shouted abusive language until a teacher, Margaret Jones, called the police. The consul asks that the governor investigate the situation.
