U.S.-MEXICO COMMISSION IS TO
BE GIVEN WIDE LATITUDE
Washington, July 22. Pres. Wil
son desires far-reaching discussion
when representatives of U. S. and
Mexico get together in an attempt to
solve Mexican problem. It became
positively known today that he does
u not wish scope of discussion limited
merely to military matters. Such
questions, he believes, could be fet
tled by military officials of two coun
tries. Wilson, however, is said to be de
termined to avoid giving Carranza,
his generals or the Mexican public
the slightest impression that the
U. S. wishes to dictate Mexican na
tional policy. For that reason steps
leading up to suggestion of a com
mission to discuss situation, as well
as this government's acceptance of
such a plan, have been taken guard
edly. Gen. Carranza has been informed
of desires of this government to ex?
tend range of coming inquiry. Word
is now awaited from him regarding
this feature. It is expected soon and
President Wilson's formal acceptance
of commission plan was expected
either today or early next week,

HEY MEN! SIGN HER FOR ONE
OF THE BATHING BEACHES
Valparaiso, Ind., July 2Z Some
of the bolder residents of Porter
county today planned to walk right
up to the Woodland cot of the Her
mit Eve and ask her who she is.
Fishermen who reported having
.seen the mysterious woman bathing
in Lake Michigan, clad only in na
ture's garments, did not have the
& heart to follow her when she scam-
pered into the sand hills like a
frightened deer. The woman has
lived here for some time, but it was
not noticed until recently that she
bathed twice daily in the lake.
Speculation was divided whether
she was Miss Elizabeth Wilkins, the
instructor of the University of Chi
cago who disappeared two years ago,
or whether she is Miss Wilhelmina
Wilkins of Walla Walla, Wash., re
puted worth $250,000 who also mys
teriously disappeared two years ago.
The Modern Eve has succeeded in
throwing about herself a veil of sec
recy it little else.

U-BOATS MAY BATTLE ALLIED
CRUISERS IN ATLANTIC
Baltimore, July 22. A naval bat
tle at the very doors of America is
a possibility as the result of the Ger
man venture of sending subsea
freighters here.
Two big armed ocean-going sub
marines are reported convoying the
freighter Bremen to the capes, in
tending also to take the Deutschland
out This story, told the United Press
by a naval expert here today, may
mean that the allied patrol off the
capes will clash with the submersi
bles or that Germany plans the bold
stroke of torpedoing' the allied cor
don outside the American three-mile
limit in order to let in the Bremen
and let out the Deutschland, it was
declared.
Captain Hinsch of the Ozeon Rho
dare was reticent about the story, re
fusing to confirm or deny it
The Deutschland will lay in the
greasy waters of the Patapsco today.
A few provisions were loaded, but she
was ready for a dash at any time. Al
lied spies still flank her outward route
and cause her promoters some worry.

PARALYSIS . EPIDEMIC TAKES
BIGGEST BABY TOLL
New York, July 22. The infantile
