149 MEN LINED UP AND SHOT
Mexico City, March 18. In squads
of a dozen men each, 149 mutineers
were taken from the Federal barracks
at Jojutla today, lined up against a
stone wall and executed.
It required less than half an hour
for the slaughter of the men who re
belled at service in the army of Gen
eral Huerta. The firing squad worked
rapidly and pumped bullets into the
bodies of their former comrades as
fast as they were lined up.
Bodies were piled high along the
wall when the last squads were
brought out and those going to their
death stumbled over the forms of
those who had faced the rifles of the
executioners only a few minutes be
fore. Withthe last .mutineer dead the
bodies weer buried in one trench.
Huerta has ordered the strictest
discipline enforced in all garrisons.
A stone wall and firing squad awaits
leaders of any rebellious outbreak.
