Patrons of the Ann Arbor public
schools held a joint discussion with r
the members of the Board of Educa- c

Tlye general sentiment was that thet
Ann Arbor schools are weak along 1
lines of vocational training, and the
appropriations which the board is to
ask for will probably be used to aE
great extent to provide for these
needs. After the sum needed hasf

ropolis of the state of Chihuahua,
according to a report received here
tonight. All southern Chihuahua
and Coahuila are now said to be in

Headquarters of the Punitive Ex-
pedition, United States Army, near
Casas Grandes, Mexico, by aeroplane
to Columbus, New Mexico, March 27.-
The further south the army penetrates,
the more persistent and consistent be-
comes the co-operation and assistance
in pursuit of Villa on the part of the
forces commanded by officers of the
Carranza government, a circumstance
very favorably commented upon by
officers of the armed expedition.
Never in the history of the army of
the United States has every branch
of the service, cavalry, infantry and
artillery, given better evidence of its
mobility, stamina and preparedness
than on this expedition. Since leav-
ing Columbus, March 15, the army
has reached a point 200 miles south-
ward, every mile of which was trav-
elled overland through some of the
roughest country in the republic of
"I am proud of the record made by
the forces under my command on this
occasion," said General Pershing, lead-
er of the expedition, when discussing
the matter this afternoon, "The men
and animals are in splendid condition
and, so far as the men are concerned,
the furher they get into the interior
of the country the more enthusiastic
they seem to become."

TODAY LAST 1AY TO SECURE
Senior lits who have not ordered
commencement invitations as yet have
only up to tonight to do so. The time
set for the ordering of invitations ex-
pired over two weeks ago, but since
over 175 seniors have not been heard
from as yet, this extra time allowance
has been secured from the printers.
The definite order for invitations
will be placed Wednesday and it will
be impossible for seniors to secure
them after that time. It is therefore
necessary that all orders be in the
hands o' the committee this evening.
CHIEFTAIN IS RETI EATING
Villa was reported nearly 100 miles
southeast of this point, which indicates
that he is retreating. It is believed
that the American forces cannot get
any contact with him. There is in-
timation that, far from seeking asy-
lum in the Duerro district where he
is supposed to have been, Villa has
turned eastward, giving no indication
as to his ultimate object.
A new advance base for the Ameri-
can army has been established 100
miles below Casas Grandes, and nio-
tor companies have left for this base
loaded with supplies of all kinds for
the troops stationed there. The gar-
rison now at the front is composed of
organizations representing all branch-
es of the military service.
CARRANZISTAS TO BLAME
San Antonio, Maxi, 27. - General
day, General Pershing announced that
that Villa did not break through the
line of the American forces, but slip-
ped past the Carranzistas.
There is reason to believe that the
Carranza troops are not only failing
to co-operate actively with the Ameri-
can troops but are actively aiding Villa
to escape. General Funston reported
that the expeditionary force was suf-
fering from cold. Being very lightly
clad for service, he said our troops
are now actually suffering from the
extreme cold in the mountain coun-

jured in a fall at Casas Grandes, ar-

shing would report to him, if it were

day General Pershing announced that
