Today in the Sobel Timeline: November 14

On November 14, 1931, Senator Alvin Silva of Durango gave a vitavision interview in which he spoke of Mexico's "Pacific destiny" and strongly criticized President Pedro Fuentes for his obsession with curtailing the power of Kramer Associates. Silva said, "While the President worries about Kramer Associates, the world is changing rapidly. A visit to Honolulu would do him a world of good, not only to refresh his sagging spirit, but to give him a better perspective on the world as it is, not as it was."

Silva's remarks were reported the next day in the Mexico City Herald.
