NO NEWS FROM GENERAL PERSHING
REGARDING MOVEMENTS OF TROOPS
War Department Has Asked Carranza Why He Rushes
Troops to Border Herrera's Desertion to Villa
Still a Matter of Doubt.
Villa wan attacked and defeated nt Santa Gertrudes last iiinht, hy
Carranza troops. Gen. Gnvirn announced after receiving a ilespntch from
the south. Villa fled to El Oso.
No word was received at Washinprtnn yesterday front Cnrranz?. In

The Cabinet may decide to-day to call out the cavalry forces in tin
State militia to patrol the border.
Whether or not Gen. Luis Herrera has joined Villa with 'J.000 Cnr
ranzistas is still u matter of doubt. Mr. Arredondo denies it, ns nlao
does a tclcirrnm said to be siftned by Herrera.
On the other hand, Gen. Hell of El Paso is reported to have notified
Gen, Kunston late last nifrht that Herrera had deserted Carranza.
The War Department is investiiratinK the Herrera report, and in th
absence of confirmation is withholding judgment.
First detailed story of the record marches of Per.shiiiK's troops in
Mexico is sent to Tin: Sun, uncensorcd, from the headquarter" of the
United States expeditionary forces.
Villa was forced to retreat to Namiquipa by Carranza forces after
a clash at Santa Clara, according to a message from Gen. Hertaui.
I Col. Dodd's force is in that vicinity and may have taken part, is thn
belief in El Paso.
A telegram purporting to lie from Gen. I.uis Herrera was shown at
'Juarez, the Mexican denying he had joined Villa, nnd stating that he wan
