ARTILLERY MAY BE USED IN FINAL ROUNDUP OF VIILLA The photograph shows a detachment of United States
artillery in Mexico. On account of the nature of the soil and climate, army officers have found the movement of artillery a
very difficult problem. Light field artillery, however, usually can proceed anywhere that the cavalry can go. It is possi
