No Details Given in Message from
Laredo; Same Reports Circulate
Around Vera Cruz
(By Associated Press)
El Paso, May 15. - President Car-
ranza and some of his soldiers have
been reported captured by revolution-
ists under General Sanchez operat-
ing in the state of Puebla, according
to advices received late today from
Laredo by a Spanish language news-
paper published here. No details were
given. Reports of Carranza's capture
were also being circulated in Vera
Washington, May 15. - President
Carranza of Mexico was pictured today
by Alvaro Obregon, who forced hin
to flee from the capital a week ago, as
a fugitive in the mountains somewhere
between Mexico City and Vera Cruz.
Official reports from .the fight near
San Marcos between the revolution-
ists and the loyalists were lacking,
but press dispatches from Vera Cruz
also told of Carraiyza's escape through
the revolutionary lines, apparently
setting at rest all reports of the de-
posed ruler's surrender.
There were indications that the rev-
olutionists' attack had not been press-
ed, due to Obregon's order in which he
offered Carranza safe conduct to leave
the country if he desired to surren-
Obregon's report said Carranza, ac-
companied by a small escort, was
making for the mountains, but that
he was being pursued.
While American officials regarded
the escape of Carranza as the possi-
ble basis for counter uprisings, the
belief that he would be able to avail
himself of the opportunity was not,
widespread. .
Some progress towards restoration
of communication with Mexico was re-
ported today.
Dieguez Taken
Mexico City, May -15. - Reports
that Gen. Manuel Dieguez has been
captured were confirmed today by a
wireless from Guadalajara, given out
by Obregon's headquarters. The fed-
eral leader, together with his staff, are
now in prison. Prior to the receipt
of the message, it had been decided to
send Gen. Benjamin Hill with a strong
battalon to capture Dieguez.
Other statements made by liberal
revolutionist headquarters indicate the
fighting is still going on near San
Marcos between the tro6ps guarding
the presidential palace and revolu-
tionary forces.
Abrahabn Herman, '21L, will deliver
an address on "The Materialistic Con-
ception.of History" at 8 o'clock next
Tuesday evening in room P.162 of the
Natural Science building before mem-
bers of the Intercoll'egiate Socialist';
society, for whom this will be the last
meeting of the year.

Methods of raising alumni funds,
and the relation of the alumni to the
financial problems facing all educa-
tional institutions as a result of the
war ,featured the Saturday morning
session of the conference of Alumni
and Alumnae secretaries, which closed
early yesterday afternoon.
Part of the discussion from Friday's
session was carried'over to the morn-
ing session, which began with an ad-
dress by Wilfred B. Shaw, secretary of..
the general alumni association. Miss
Bertha Ehlers, of Bryn Mawr also
spoke on the same general subject of
the -Aumni fund method of raising
funds by annual contributions.
Discusses Employment Problem
Preceding the business meeting and'
election of officers, Mr. John J. Coss
discussed the various problems to be
encountered yby alumni and alumnae
ofjces on the employment problem.
Mr. Coss based many of his conclu-
sions on his experience during the
war as a member of the Committee on
Classification and Personnel of the
War Department. It was his belief
that college men are coming into de-
mand more and more by the bigger
institutions and that graduating se-
niors are, fknding little difficulty in get-
ting jobs. Especially does this apply,
according to his statement, where the
university or college is near a large
city, as Columbia university in New
York City.
Favor Annual Conference
A resolution was unanimously
adopted favoring the holding of a con-
ference of this nature annually, al-
though the place and time for the
next meeting was not definitely decid-
ed. It was also decided upon to meet
jointly with the alumnae secretaries
in the future.
To date but one book for next year's
Union opera has been submitted to the
opera book committee, who are desir-
ous of having all books turned in as
soon as possible in order that a care-
ful selection may be made..
It is hoped to secure a book which
will Put the 1921 .opera on a par with
this year's production so every effort
is being made to have as many man-
uscripts as possible submitted. Any
information regarding the procedure
necessary for turning in books or ad-
vice on their form may be secured
from Edwin Krueger, '21E, general
chairman of next year's opera.
About 12 men have already signed
up for the dancing classes to be held
