sums up the situation this way:

Secretary Tumulty Issues Official tfe-

WASHINGTON Nov. 30. -The ad-
ministration's reply to those who crit-
icise "the recognition of the Carranza
government in Mexico because of
charges of outrages upon- priests and
nuns of the Catholic church was made
public here last night in a letter by
Secretary Tumulty to Dr. James J.
McQuire of. Trenton N. J. who re-
cently wrote to the White House ask-
ing for an explanation- of what he
'characterized as "widespread criti-
cism." Secretary Tumulty advised Dr. Mc-
Guire that the files of the State De-
portment failed to disclose any offi-
cial record of a single proven case of
outrages upon .nuns and he included
in his letter a statement by the
Catholic vicar general it Mexico City
w'hicn while disclosing the shooting
of priests and imprisonment of others
declared there had been no violations
of nuns in that district
Secretary Tumulty said in all wars
the horrors of the conflict have been

side but that it should be the duty of
alh citizens of both the United States
and Mexico to contribute in every
manner to the early rehabilitation of
the nation so ionc torn bv civil
strife and to avoid keeping open the
"Counsel and sympathy are needful
and Would be merciful now because
they would be of wonderful efficacy j

the work of reconstruction" wrote
Mr. Tumulty. "Efforts to arouse ran
corous feelings among them will 'have!
effect of opening anew wounds which I
should be healed and of creating an
Open sore to torture that poor people
as long- as their minds are kept in-
flamed against their brethren." .

to the recognition of President Juarez

This conflict has made the cheese

No prediction of future conditions
relative to possible car shortages can
be made by railroad officials as the
car situation varies quite rapidly
