residents on both sides of the border here learned Thursday that Mexico is going to recover El Pasos stock yards district in settlement of a centuryold boundary dispute Under an agreement made pub lic by presidents of both coun tries the United States is pledged to return the 437acre Chamizal strip This is a sliver of land taken from Mexico in a shift of course by the flooding Rio Grande which divides the two nations elsewhere Once a worthless stretch of brush the Chamizal sector lies between the El Paso business dis trict and the city of Juarez across the river Since the stream chose a new route in 1364 the area has acquired 3750 residents nearly all of Mexican descent and 382 buildings In common with the two heads of state El Paso leaders ap plauded the international pact as long overdue in payment of a just claim Not all the reaction was favor able Some Chamizal residents dont want to see their homes cross the border and said theyre dubious about obtaining fair com pensation Tourists who cross the interna tional bridges from El Paso to eat drink shop and see the bull fights in Juarez know the Chami zal strip as a largely drab sec tion mingling to homes shacks apartments and business build ings a public school a meat pack ing plant and two stockyards There was no great surprise at the Chamizal plans announced simultaneously by Presidents Ken nedy and Lopez Malcos They first talked about the matter in June of last year when Kennedy went to Mexico In addition to restoring 437 acres to Mexico the settlement calls for rerouting the Rio Grande in a concreted channel to make it the border line again at all points here This will cost an estimated million and the two nations will split the cost Mexico for its part will to the United States half of an area named Cordova
