Kaiser's Reply Ready.
[By Robert .1. ^ender, United Press
WASHINGTON, April 28.—The
kaiser has determined upon his re

to Chancellor Von Bethmann-Hollweg.
This is the interpretation placed by
German officials in Washington to

American Ambassador Gerard to
visit him at army headquarters. It
was declared the reply, for this rea

LONDON, April 28.—The British

The Big Problem.
[By Carl D. Groat, United Press Staff
WASHINGTON, April 28.—The big
problem of withdrawing the Ameri
can expedition from Mexico apparent
ly will be the chief element in the
Scott-Obregon border conference,
authorities here thought today.
Scott, however, is understood not
to be authorized to set any hard and
fast time for taking out the troops.
Press reports indicating Obregon will
emphasize this point, brought indica
tions that Scott will seek an under
standing with Carranza's war minis
ter whereby the task of the Villa
hunters will be expedited. In this
connection be may propose that Car
ranza'B soldiers independently scour a
portion of Chihuahua whQe the Amer
ican columns search elsewhere.
This move, authorities said, would
provide the actual co-operation Scott
seeks, would relieve the American ex
pedition of considerable of its work
and at the same time make for the
early dispersal of Villa's bands and
perhaps, his capture.
Supplies are known to be sufficient
until May 15 or longer.
If Scott can get better use of the
railways, the supply problem will be
solved. v: Uv
