ELIMINATION" OF HUERTA IS
By Gilson Gardner.
Washington, May 7. The elimina
tion of Huerta is the answer to the
mediation situation. That "Huerta
must go is the first and last demand
of President Wilson. Huerta's elimi
nation can be brought about in twb
ways. First, by continued victories of
the constitutionalist forcesmder Vil

may further embarrass Huerta by dis
couraging his financial backers and in
this way eventually war may be
averted and Huerta eliminated. T.h
