unseen, interventionist forces were
active along border today, striving
mightily to upset negotiations be
tween Gen. Scott and Obregon for

Cymric, if it was without warning,
apparently violates the very orders
against attacking merchantmen
which German imperial government,
has declared are in effect
The fact that no Americans were
aboard, Washington officials said to
