T Jived today from Carranza's for
eign secretary at Quertaro by Mex
ican Ambassador Arredondo.
Cablegram from Gen. Obregon to
Mexican embassy today said Villa, ac
cording to his reports, had gone into

MAY DRAFT STATE MILITIA FOR
MEXICAN SERVICE
Washington, April 1Z State mili
tia must be drafted for Mexican serv
ice if any very large number of ad
ditional forces are needed in Villa
pursuit, it was admitted here today.
Army men hoped, however, this
step would not become necessary.
The only thing to prevent it is: First,
that the Villa trail may grow so hot
that Pershing's men need not plunge
much farther south; second, that the
present supply system may suffiffice
for needs of the expedition.
First supply shipment, with U. S.
depot quartermaster at El Paso as
consignor, left yesterday over Mexi
can National, destined for Parral.
Four cars of oats and five of hay,
which Gen. Funston reported he
hoped would reach Gen. Pershing via
Chihuahua consul
First time Mexican National line
has been used. If the consignment
reaches Parral other shipments will
be forwarded in same manner, as the
line is more direct than Northwest
ern, heretofore used.
ARMY PRIVATE BITES SELF TO
DEATH IS BELIEF
Winnipeg, Man., April 12. That F.
T. Morgan, private in Winnipeg bat
talion, bit his throat so seriously with
his false teeth that he died of his in
juries was serious belief of officials
today. Morgan lay on his back with
his mouth open dreaming of the end
of the war when a bugle call was
sounded near him. As Morgan jump
ed p his false teeth lodged in his
throat, biting apart tissues that
brought death.
DOCTOR ATTACKED FOR BORING
INTO LIVING BRAIN
Ann Arbor, Mich., April 12. Be
cause he bored holes into the brains
of Bix living patients at the Pontiac
State hospital with an ordinary den
tal drill and extracted from each hole
a quantity of living brain with which
he inoculated a rabbit, Dr. U. J. Wile,
Univ. of Mich, professor, today was
the object of bitter attacks in circu
lars being distributed broadcast.
Laymen were less impressed by the
statement of Dr. Wile that when the
rabbit became infected the presence
of spirochaeta pallida in the brains of
lunatics had been established and
the cause of paresis determined, than
that vivisection had been practiced
on human beings in a state hospital.
Friends and colleagues of Dr. Wile
have rallied to his support.
"The six patients operated on at
Pontiac to prove the cause of Paresis
were hopelessly and helplessly in
sane," said Dr. E. A. Christian, head
of Pontiac Hospital. "Consent of the
guardians or relatives was not se
cured as it was not necessary."
o o
ELECTION SIDELIGHTS
Roosevelt took only two delegates
from Sherman.
John Maynard Harlan, former al
derman who figured in the Marshall
Field-Yerkes scrap for traction con
trol, lost badly for place in Republi
can convention.
Mayor Thompson says he carried
city against all comers and against
all kinds of villification.
West declared the results gratify
ing in view of Thompson's fight on
him.
Deneen expressed belief that City
Hall forces had been defeated.
The traction trust bosses, may be
the backbone of the opposition to
Mayor Thompson, as the mayor says,
but they let A. W. Miller, Thompson
candidate for ward committeeman in
the 12th ward, hang two "Vote for
Miller" banners on the side of the
Kedzie av. "L" station. Miller won.
