The METROPOLITAN sent John
Reed to Mexico for the truth. He is
a6 years old and doesn't know fear.
We knew we would get the truth
from him, but frankly confess we did
not expect the wonderful word pictures
oi a country torn and bleeding with
civil war that we publish in our April
number. We got the truth about
Mexico, but greater than that wc dis
covered an American Kipling.
, Hot from the front has come John
Reed's first "story0 of Mexico. By
holding our presses wc just had time
to catch the April number now on
the news-stands. It's literature. What
Stephen Crane and Richard Harding
Davis did for the Spanish-American
War in 1898, John Reed, 26 years

lips sway the passions of men. You

his mother and his mistress. And for

story is literature.
