PRICE TEN CENTS PER WEEK Overseas Trip of German Submarine Presents United States With Problems It Never Before Faced Looted of Food by Government Agents, Peons Are Flocking to Villa Standard in Hope of Relief. Officials Declare Famine Will Hasten Intervention by the United States By I'nited Press. El Paso, Tex., July 11.—"Mexico is like one long bread line,'' according to famine reports brought here today indicating that starving peons are again flocking to Francisco Villa's standard in hope of relief. Depreciated Carranza currency and anarchy In industry and agriculture were reflected in reports of defacto government troops revolting and joining the Villistas. Copies of a proclamation signed by Villa have been received In which it was stated Villa had fully recovered from his wounds and was again in the saddle at the head of a large force. He called upon loyal Mexicans to join him enroute to the border to attack American cities, drive the gringoes from the Rio Grande, and retake Texas, New Mexico and California. Starving Peons in Revolt. Reports persist that 5,000 defacto government troops in the Parral district declared for Villa, their former chief. Starving peons in Cuarta Cantagas Coahuila, Carranza's birthplace, are reported to have revolted and taken possession of the town in Villa's name. Anarchy followed the peons' looting all stores. Looting is also said to have been adopted by the starving poor of the Monclova district. Army officers returned from the American lines in Mexico and prominent Mexicans arriving here declare that the famine will soon hasten intervention by the United States. They brought reports of starving thousands of peons tn the states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, lDurango and Sonora. The Mexicans bitterly charged that the defacto government nevertheless recently exported carloads of beans and other foodstuffs it had confiscated.
