Cook Takes Role in Excellent Style
Grant Cook deserves commendation
for the manner in which he handled
the difficult role of Mrs. Gregg, as
does Atlas for consistent repetition
of his previous success as the humble
husband. They received the steady
support of the other principals and the
chorus men during every minute of
the performance.
For happy unity of orchestra and
company the canoe song, 'the finale
of the first act and the Spanish and

models. The execution of the danc-

Representative Gardner (ives House
Letter of Secretary Baker
Denying Reports
Washington, Mar. 17.-An army
scandal that may result in a shake up
in the War Department or the Arny
War Collegq was precipitated here to-
day as a result of the action of Repr-
sentative Gardner of Massachusetts in
presenting to the House a'letter bear-
ing the signature of Newton D. Baker,
Secretary of War.
In this letter Secretary Baker takes
issue with Chairman Hay of the mili-
tary committee on a number of ques-
tions of facts stated in Mr. Hay's r-
port on the army bill now pendiig
in the House. He characterized as
fallacious certain deductions made
by Chairman Hay as to the military
resources of the United States.
The Baker letter created a sensa-
tion in Congress and administration
circles. It is generally accepted as
foreshadowing an immediate break
between Secretary Baker and Chair-
man Hay, and fear was expressed that
in the melee the administration pro-
gram of preparedness might, be held
It developed tonight that Mr. Baker

did not write the letter that bears hisI
name. It was prepared for his signa-
ture by a high officer of the ariy and
was signed as a matter of routine by
Mr. Baker on the second or third day
after he had been inducted into office
as Secretary of War.
Friends of Mr. Baker insist that he
did not know that the letter which was
addressed to Mr. Gardner in response
to an inquiry was. written in
such a way as to invite controversy.
They declare that an inve-stigation will
be made at once.

invading Mexico to effect the capture
of Pancho Villa and his bandits were
reported tonight as being between
Janos and Ascension, north of Casas
Grandes, a little more than halfway
to Casas Grandes from the A merican
border line at Columbus, New Mexico.
They were marching parallel to the
Janos River.
TI he report came to the office of Gen-
eral Gabriel Gaviera, commander of
the Juarez military garrisoni. Gen-
eral Gaviera also reported that Villi
and his men were believed to be be-
tween Galena and Sanbuena Ventura.
The latter place is 48 miles southeast
of Casas Grandes
Americans IS hlours' March from Vlla
Gaviera's report of the whereabouts
of Pershing's column is generally
credited because an American who
left Columbus with the Pershing com-
mand and returned later to the border
being in El Paso today, said that when
he left the American invaders yester-
day morning th ey expected to make
the Boca Grandt# river for encampment
last night. By. leaving there this
morning, they could have reached
Janos or Ascension tonight, the total
distance being about 70 miles from Co-
The distance between the location
of the American column tonight and
the location of Villa as given by Gen-
eral Gaviera is said to be about a 48-
hour march for the American troops
If they continue at the same rate they
have marched since leaving Columbus.
Passengers going through Columbus
today said that additional re-enforce-
ments of American troops had arrived
at Colunmbts and had been sent south
today to join General Pershing. Noth-
ing had been heard from the cavalry
and artillery column taken into Mexico
south of Hachita by Colonel D. A.
Dodd. The 11th Cavalry was among
the regiments that left Columbus to-
day for the front. Passengers said as
many troops are now in Columbus
as before the departure of the Pershing
expedition and that these are expected
to follow him south rapidly. 'avalry,
artillery and aviation corps menĀ° are
at work at Columbus drilling and pre-
paring for activity today.
Americans today discovered a num-

of tie American cavalry a week ago

of his people and called a traitor by
many as a result of statements put
into his mouth by certain American
newspapers and that to avoid such a
state of affairs lie would refuse to re-
