Officials Are Puzzled By
Gathering of Prominent

WASHINGTON Oct. 2G.-Official
reports received here of the presence
. of members of the Carranza Hiierta
Obregon.. Trevino and iladero families
in San Antonio Texas Tiave puzzled
observers who are seeking an expla-
nation of the gathering "of non-com-
. batant 'Mexicans.
Some administration officials be-
lieve that the economic and social
conditions in Mexico arc undesirable
and. that these prominent' families
left the country for that reason.
Reports to persons here in touch
.with the legalista movement said that
Villa has possibly given assurances
that he will leave Mexico and go to
Cuba if Carranza is overthrown. The
shortage of ammunition among Car-
ranza troops in the north is ex-
plained by the same persons with the
statement that internal politics
. among the Carranza leaders are such
(hat General Obregon is personally
keeping control of practically all the
available ammunition. Recent news
dispatches reported the movement of
a trainload of ammunition to Que-
retaro when General Carranza and
G"eneral Obregon went there from
Mexico City. Sources in touch with
the legalista movements say Obre-
gon took it with him that he might
control its disposal.
So far as is known Villa has no
leader of consequence with the ex-
ception of Ynez Salazar whom ' he
liberated from the Chihuahua peni-
tentiary on his recent raid. -Former
Villa leaders now exiles along the
American border are ssaid to be ready
