Mexican constitutionalist representa
tives here in communication with Sec
retary Bryan are inquiring as to the
trend of events. From well informed
sources it is said the constitutionalists
will not under any circumstances unite
with Huerta, but will maintain their
status quo in the territory they now
control if the United States take no
offensive action against them. The
ambassador and ministers, too, who are
eager to learn the purpose of the Amer
ican government, were supplied with
information by the state department.

In the meantime the Atlantic fleet
continues steaming southward to the
Mexican potts. No orders were issued
to the army.
The determination to force a defin
ite reply from Huerta, ending the toler
ance toward his dilatory tactics, is
emphesized strongly in the day's de
velopments. It was a day of action in
official circles, reminiscent of many of
the scenes of 1S9S, for at no time since
has the president threatened to ask
congress to use the army and navy
forces to enforce the foreign policy.
The knowledge that the Mexican sit

toward the Virginia hills, where the
president was playing.
In -the meantime the AVhite House
had telephoned to the golf club, and
secret sen-ice men ran out to the ninth
hole and communicated the message.
The president abandoned the, links and
got into his big motor car. On the way
toward Washington he met Bjryan and
Tumulty. The party sped back to the

meanwhile described Huerta's message
as "inconclusive." Though the text of
Huerta's answer was not made public,
other officials described the dictator's
attitude as "very obstinate" and in

Naval officers said there was no such
thing as a "simultaneous salute." Apol
ogies are given in a salute of 21 guns
fired at intervals of ten seconds, after
the completion of which the party of
fended returns the salute.
That Huerta had merely "suggested"
and "inquired" also was reveuled and
officials found they had interpreted his
previous "inquiries" under suggestions
When the president reached the
White House, Postmaster General Bur
leson was waiting. Acting Chairman
Shively of the senate foreign relations
committee arrived a few minutes later.
They studied Huerta's message only a
few minutes and were unanimously
agreed on a reply which was des
patched to Charge O'Slnughnessy. It
was couched in strong language, and
it's tenor was indicated by the public
statement issued from the White House
saying that unless Huerta had "yieded"

Official business was interrupted at
the White House, callers being turned

The armored cruiser South Dakota

THE BREAKFAST FOOD FAMILY
Doing Away With Luck in Auction
It has long been admitted that the
only blot of auction was the fact that
'ts luck percentage was too high, writes
Florence Irwin in the April Strand.
The man with all the high cards could
take the stakes whether he played well
or poorly: he could defeat, superior
j. layers because he held the good cards
against them. This was hard on the
superior players: also it was the flat
test kind of victory for the victor. No
good sportsman wants to win on cards
Of course, expert players could cake
more on good hands and lose less on
bad ones than inferior players. But not
ven experts could beat luck.
Chess is a perfect game because it
is 100 per cent skill and no per cent

nor fall of cards;, of fate of the chess

I and if you are
planning to attend the games this

attendance at the opening game was
one of the largest in the game's
history and if you don't believe it
just look at the photograph above.
It shows a section of the fans in
the bleachers, cheering a clever play
by Jimmy Smith at third. At least
they had been cheering, but the ex
citement of having a paclure taken
somewhat distracted them. So the
little girls stopped cheering and gig
gled a. little instead.
They have no ladies' days in the

Every day is ladies' day here. This
