from typed article for publication to Los Angeles area newspaper: (now at Library of Congress Bolm archives)

Adolph Bolm flew to Mexico City last night. He was invited there by the Mexican Government's Belles Artes National Academy of Fine Arts and Music of which Carlos Chavez is Artistic Director.

When Chavez was here recently for his composition course at UCLA he and Bolm, who are old friends, had long talks abou the National Ballet's further development.

Chavez urged Bolm to come down for a short visit to examine the Ballet's potentialities and advise and discuss productions, musical and artistic matters with Merida, Best, Montenegro, Moguard, and Covarubias, the native artists who are also old friends of Bolm's.

He will also conduct a special Ballet Course and try out dancers.

Upon his return next week he will resume his daily ballet classes and prepare for his usual two Special Summer Courses to be conducted at the Highland Playhouse.
