weaker than they should be.
Some uneasiness was displayed for
a moment at his headquarters Tues
day when it was reported that the
telegraph wires between Casas
Grandes and the border had been cut,
but an official report stating that the
line cut was a "buszer" line which
Gen. Pershing had laid, and that It
had been broken accidentally by some
of the American forces crossing it, al
layed apprehension.
It is not believed here that Gen.
Funston is worried to any extent by
roports of alleged growing1 antagonism
among Carranza troops, although he Is
carefully studying all reports, offi- i
cial and unofficial, on that phase of
the situation.

It has not beei forgotten at his

many more troops somewhere in north

sidered wise to expose too much Gen.

Columbus. X. M . March 22 That the
motor truck and the automobile is-.superseding
the traditional army mule in
the American-Mexican expedition, was
indicated in rush orders for gasoline,
received at the field base here today.
It was asserted that the expeditionary
demand for gasoline has been sreater
than that for food or forage. An of

former American armies, the present
field force is traveling on gasoline

Army men here admitted today that

Robert H Willis and T S Correll caused
anxietj for the ifety of the missing
aviators. Throughout the night line
men worked repairing the army field

worked Intermittently todav. Instruc
tions were sent to the stations between
here and Ascension. 30 miles across the
border, which could not be reached by
wireless, to assist in the search.
Mill Hopes to I'luil Him.
Maj. W. B Sample, commandant at
the expeditionary base herni asserted
that he was still clinging to the hope
that the remaining missing aviator,
who left here last Snndat afternoon to
fly to Casas Grandes, 120 miles south,
may have reported at some outlying
station Maps showing tho topography
of the country over which the aviators
were to pass were being studied in an
offort to determine some lonely valley
in -n hlch they mav have been lost
Several possible e-cplans'tions were
advanced for the failure of the flyer
to reach Casas Grandes, but increased
credence was being given today to the
belief that he may have fallen victim
to the bullets of Mexican snipers How
ever, it wu uomted out also that In
the event that engine troubles have

It was pointed out that the three

such an event might not prove suf

to obtain early trace of the officer.
Fear-i that the line of communication
