U. S. IS WATCHING
RIO GRANDE BORDER
Detain Suspicious Characters
and Probable Mexican Revo
lutionists Seeking to Cross
Into United States.
Presidio, Tex., Nov. 20. Six al
leged suspicious characters have been
detained here in efforts to cross the
Rio Grande since Villa captured Oji
naga, the Mexican town across that
stream from here. Military and other
federal officers have been examining
all who pass in and out of Presidio in
search of Mexican politicians aligned
with the Villa movement.
One of the six men detained here
came to Presidio asserting he was a
cattle buyer from southern Mexico.
He admitted he was a member-of the
conventionist party. Another man
teld here said he was from Jalisco.
He is believed to be an emissary of
Emiliano Zapata, a southern rebel
:hief. "A third was from Oaxaca and
declared he was a dealer in straw hats,
who came to the border to sell hats to
the federal forces in Ojinaga. Still
another was a colonel in Zapata's
forces, sent here to represent his chief,
according to his statements. Two
were from central Chihuahua.
The statements of all these men
igreed in that they recognized Villa
is the logical leader of the new move
iient and claimed he had strong fal
lowings in the states from which they
came. One admitted that the move
ment had for its essential purpose the
elimination of Carranza and the re
cstablishnient of the old Diaz federal
government with Villa in control in
The examination of all suspected
persons is being continued under the
direction of Captain Roland Taylor
to prevent any thought to be emis
saries from crossing the river. George
Holmes of El Paso, formerly Villa's
rattle: buyer and close friend, came
here yesterday with the expressed in
tention of crossing the river to see
Villa, but was not given the necessary
permit. A number of Villa partisan
are known to be gathering in El Paso.

counting the cash and pledges.
"We have already received $50,000
in cash from Omaha subscriptions,"
he said. "It is coming, in all the time.

"The $35,000,000 apportionment

NO INCREASED FEE
FOR CATTLE GRAZING
Secretary Houston Decides
Against Advance to Encour
age Cattlemen in Filling
Demands for Beef.
Washington, Nov. 20. Secretary
Houston announced today that
despite his conviction that the gov
ernment fees charged this year for
grazing privileges on the national for
ests are below the real Value of the
forage, there will be no further ad
vance in those fees for the present.
This assurance and a statement that
there will be no substantial change in
the existing regulations governing the
issuance of grazing permits for more
than a year were made in a letter Jie
sent to the secretaries of the Ameri
can National Live Stock association
and the National Wool Growers' association.
On account of war conditions, Sec
retary Houston said in his letter,
stockmen have been called upon to
overcome many difficulties in order to
keep up the suddIv of beef, mutton
hides and wool for this country and
the allies, and for that reason he. has
decided that grazine fees now in
force will be continued, "with the ex
ception of such minor changes as may
seem advisable to adjust and correlate
the fees between certain "forests or
groups of forests.
The secretary said that he feels the
matter of issuing five or ten-year per
mits also should be deferred for con
siaeration later, tne demand tor in

Congress Non-Skid Tires
Hold the Road
THEY answer the steering
wheel without slip or slide
because they grip the road. They
reduce the possibility of skidding
to a minimum making motoring
safer and driving a pleasure in
stead of a task.
The cupped studs combined
with reinforced bars and bands
provide a direct and positive re
sistance to slippage in any direc
tion. This minimizes friction and
keeps your -power cost at the
lowest possible mark.
And the Congress Non-Skid
sjives a smooth, even riding con
tact with the , road. The bars
and bands bridge the small gaps
between studs, thus eliminating
all jolt and jar common to .non
skid tires. .
But this "hold the road" qual
ity of Congress Non-Skid is due
not alone to the tread. Rather
to the M balance" in design and
materials, and to the ex' silence
of construction, which are nota
ble characteristics of the Congress
tire structure. All these make
for tire "readability and conse
quently for the exceptional dura
bility of Congress casings.
