THE MEXICAN SITUATION
Chihuahua, Mex., July 24. Scores
of officers from Gen. Villa's army
were dispatched today to all sections
of state of Chihuahua to enlist every
available fighting man so that Villa's
division of the north will equal in
strength all other divisions combined
when the constitutionalists enter
Frenchmen arrived today from Za
catecas and exonerated Villa person
ally from blame for the execution at
Zacatecas of Catholic priests and
Christian Brothers, who were French
citizens. They said the executions
were ordered by Gen. Urbina, a Villa
officer, and that the imprisonment of
16 other priests and the extortion of
large sums of money from them were
perpetrated by Gen. Manuel Chao,
former Vilfista governor of Chihua
hua. It is understood a special rep
resentative of the French government
is en route to investigate.
STORY OF THE PATROL THAT'S
By Jane Whitaker.
This is the story of a patrol wagon.
Not a clanging, rushing, excitement
breeding patrol wagon that causes
the kiddies on the street to forget
their game of ball and stretch their
legs after it, but a quiet, sneaky, not-a-single-bell
patrol that winds slowly
along in back of cars and wagons
and creeps in and out like a snake
for all the world as though it was
ashamed of itself and I rather guess
I watched it yesterday while the
sun, intolerable in its heat, beat
down on the girl who was slowly
walking to and fro in front of a Knab
At first it wasn't in sight, the snaky
patrol wagon, and I hoped it wasn't
coming. Despite the lurid signs in
Knab's window, policeman No. 19
had no difficulty in keeping the street
clear in front of the Dearborn restau
rant, save once when a woman stop
ped and sassed the officer when he
ordered her to move on.
My heart almost stopped beating.
"Now she will be arrested, foolish
thing," I thought, but No. 19 is an
elderly policeman who looks as if he
had a family at home and female
ways just sort of amuse him, and so
the lady who sassed moved on.
And then the snaky, ashamed-of-itself-patrol
came along, so quietly I
did not hear it until I saw officer No.
19 step toward the girl picket and
touch her on the arm, and out in the
street the patrol had stopped and into
it the girl was forced to go though
she had been guilty of no crime.
To the credit of No. 19 h6 didn't
seem to like his job. In fact, he look
ed quite disgusted at having to do it.
Then I followed the snaky patrol.
It turned around Monroe street and
the officer moved beside it, but there
wasn't any girl on Monrpestreet, so
