El Paso, March 31.?Four hundred
^ American cavalrymen, under the command
of Col. George A. Dodu, galloping
down from the slopes of the great
continental divide, have i alien on the
main body of Francisco Villa's bandits
at the San Geronimo ranch, scattering ;
them in many directions and driving j
1 the bandit chief, wounded and crip- J
pled, to seek a hiding place in mountains.
Villa was hurried t'rom danger |
in a carriage. The fight opened at 6 j
o'clock in the evening of March 29 and j
$ continued for several hours.
A The news of the exploit was flashed I
W into Juarez today and sent a thrill
f along the border. For 17 hoars the
veteran colonel, with his picked troopers
of the Seventh and Ten/h cavalry,j
'drove down the ivalley of the Santa
Maria river. At the end of a 55 mile
ride they fell upon the unsuspecting
Villa camp where 500 bandits were
celebrating the massacre of 172 -Car-1
ranza soldiers two days previous at
Villa Badly Wounded.
Villa, shot tnrough the leg and with
r>ne hip shattered, was hurried from
the scene barely in time tc escape the
onslaught of the Americans. The bandits
made a brie:" but hopeless stand.
Then they broke and fled, leaving 31
( dead on the field, including their commander,
Gen. Eliseo Hernandez. Two

Ambulance service believing that |
in this capacity he will not only see p

His appointment was granted on ap- J3

lance driver. Whether he will be as11
signed to such a post or not, he will
: not know definitely until he reaches 11
Paris. He expects to be sent out from
