In the absence of such assurances,
however, and In the face of tlie possl.
blllty that the American expeditionary
force may meet tlie armed opposition of
nil factions In Mexico, the President Is
convinced that It was the solemn duty
of the Government not to lueltate on the

mapped out ve-nterday when Co! Sloetun
