APPEAL FOR PEACE
MADE TO MEXICO
SEVEN NATIONS JOIN IN PRO
TEST OVER LONG CON

CONFER AGAIN THIS WEEK
Drastic Action May Follow Rejection
of Proposals, But No Envoy Has
Suggested that Force Be
Used to Quiet Trouble.
Washington.---rrnsros toward re
ftorinu peace in Mrvioo was made hy
the diplomatic representatives of the
principal 1-uin- merioaii countries in
conference with Secretary of State
1j.ii sin p.
An agreement was reached to dis
patch at once an appeal to tho fac
tional leaders and Mexicans generally
to end the strife that has devastated
the country for four years.
This appeal will be si cited by Ar
gentina, Hraztl. Chile. Holivta. Uru
guay aaid Guatemala and will follow
the lines of president Wilson's note
of .Tune 2. In which tie ureed the rev

To Send Appeal to Governors.
That all Mexicans' bolliaerents and
r.oncnmbataiits may learn of the ac
tivities in their behalf, the appeal will
tie sent not only to the heads of the
different groups of warriors, but to
the governors of ea.h of the 27 Mex
The conference recessed after
reaching this agreement to await
developments. Another meeting is
scheduled to be held in New York
this week, probably Tuesday, bv which
time it is hoped the program will have
received the official sanction of all
the proposed signatories.
Drastic Action to Follow Rejection.
If the Mexican leaders reject these
altruistic good offices action of a
more drastic character may follow.
No definite plans in this regard, how
ever, have been formulated by the
conferees. First they desire to give
the Mexicans every opporunlty to
put their own house in order.
The diplomats, as well as adminis
tration officials, are hopeful that the
step will have the desired effect, and
that it will be unnecessary to resort
to sterner measures. None in the
conference suggested military invasion.
