General Urbalejo Reported Fleeing
With Remnants Of His Small
Body Of Loyalists
(By Associated Press)
MEXICO CITY, March 12.-The
federal government today gave out
extremely meager reports of the
movements of General Calles and
his army which is moving on Tor-
reon. Indications continue that a
decisive battle in the central
Mexican campaign may be fought
The noon-day bulletin reported
that the secretary of war had ad-
vanced as far as Rio Grande, state
of Zacatecas, where temporary
headquarters were established
while the staff checks up on the
advance of its troops and decides
on a plan of action. The Com-
munique indicated that movements
of the federal troops were consid-
erably hampered by railroad tracks
torn up by the rebels as they fell
back on Torreon from Canitas. It
was at the latter city that the
Calles forces made their first con-
tact with the rebels under General
Urbalejo and routed them.
Rebels Are Retreating
Urbalejo was reported to be now
fleeing with a small party which
remained loyal to him when the
great bulk of his troops deserted.
General Calles at Rio Grande is
within a 150 miles of Torreon and
near that objective than General
Juan. A. Almazan, supposed to be
advancing westward to Monterey
and last reported between that
point and Saltillo.
Both federal columns were said
to have been delayed in advancing
upon the torn up lines. It was
believed here that Calles may hold
his column somewhat in check in
order to give Almazan an oppor-
tunity to reach Toreon in time
to join the attack. The rebels
have held Torreon for more than
a week, giving them ample time
to bring up reinforcements and
supplies for a strong defense.
Stronger Defense Expected
The rebel defense was expected
to be the more determined because
a decisive defeat there would
leave them nothing to do except
to fall back on Chihuahua with the
eventual prospect of dispersing or
scurrying across the American
border to save their necks.
The absence of railroad lines to
the west coast made it wholly im-
probable that the rebels could
make contact with their western
forces, of which little information
has been given out by the govern-
ment here during the last few days.
These western forces were reported
to have advanced deep into Sinloa
to a point about 100 miles above
Mazatlan, where the rebels were
reported mobilizing to halt their-
Bulletin Gives Details
The bulletin today gave further
details -of the mopping up cam-
paign in the state of Vera Cruz
where the federals crushed the
rebellion nearly a week ago. It

was stated that 1,000 armed men
have surrendered and that the
government expected that the rest,
said to include about 300 Yaquis,
would shortly give up.
Distance Swimmers
Begin Registration
Registration will begin Thursday
and will. continue for one week for
participation in the Union ten mile
,swim, William E. Nissen, '29, presi-
dent of the Union, announced yes-
terday. Competition in the affair
will begin Monday, March 25, and
will continue until May -11.
Medals, according to the plan ad-
vanced by Union officials, will be
awarded to the first 20 men who
swim a total of 10 miles during the
period. All those who finish the dis-
tance during the period will have
their names engraved on the Union
