WASHINGTON. May 31. In an
atmosphere of holiday calm, Presi
dent Wilson studied today tha Inter
national problems confronting him
with respect to conditions tn Mexico
and the German submarine warfare.
The president motored most of the
I morning, riding on the front seat of
his car, apparently In deep thought.
Tha reply of the German govern
ment to the American note protest
Ing against the sinking of the Lusl
tan la and other violations of Ameri
can rights In the war tone brought
disappointment and 'a revival of the
tension which preceded the dispatch
of the first communication to Berlta,
At the Whit House It wss stated that

which sttraoted attention waa that which
said the "Lusitania undoubtedly had
guns on bos rd which were mounted un
