For First Time in Fifteen Years As

The situation in Mexico appears to
be serious. Foj the tirst time in the
fifteen years of operation, the leased
wire of the Associated Press from
Laredo to Monterey and Mexico City
was commandeered by the .Mexican
government on the plea of military
need, and the federal circuit manager
in NetlVO Laredo was ordered to cut
off the Laredo office of the Assoc iated
Cress to prevent Information being
gleaned from messages moving over
the wire. These instructions eman
ated from the headquarters of the
Federal Telegraphs in .Mexico City,
where it was explained that the gov
ernment would require the full ca
pacity of all its telegraph facilities
throughout the r.ip!?t.
