(By the AsnoclBt'ed PTPRS) , -Mexico City, Mar. 1.—Suburbanites, who nuoiber nearly a quarter ihiUion of people are seeking lodgeihei^ts in the city with tiie result that provisioBs arc still more scarce and iliigb-prlced than they have been. During the fight ing in tiie suburbs between the forces of Zaputa and the Carrahzamen, the modern system of electric car Jines which link the capital to its six principal, suburban towns : has lltgraUy been shot to pieces. The suburbanites are thus cut off from their business in the city, un dare also in danger if they remain at home. The fighting has been of the most indefinite character with the contend ing, forces occupying and reoccupying villages at intervals some times as shortly separated aa the rising and the setting of one sun. , The difficulty the soldiers have In distinguishing friend from foe is illustrated t)y a recent incident in the suburb of Coyoacan. A party of Carranza men w^o had dismounted in the main plaza encountered some loungers who were not recognized as Zapatistas. A friendly conversation was commenced and continued until someone suspected the identity of tiie lounscers and challenged them. The answer rang back "Viva Zapata"! With that rifles were brought into play .and the plaza was strewn with dead from both sides. Reinforcements arriving for the Carranza men, the Zapatistas were finally driven to the ^'oods.

Catranxa Soldiers Caught In a It'aler Main and Drowned Like Rats -Mexico City.—(Correspondence of The Associated Press). Two hundred men of Generial Obregon's command were drowned in the water main leading out to the suburban sources of Mexico City's water supply in a recent attempt Jto get to the rear of the Zapatista forces. When the Zapatistas were comr pelled to evacuate the capital a few weeks ago; they retired to the suburb of Xochimiico and seized the sources of the city 's water supply, making the capital dependent oh artesian wells and a small reservoir in a park near Cliapultepec Castle. The unflfllahed sewers, due to the fact that a scajrcity of water made it unwise to use it for anything than drinking purposes, ser lously nkenaced the health of the, city. General Obregon made many attempts to recapture the main wurcea of the water supply In the old Indian town of Xochimiico, but all of them were repulsed by Zapata 's men. A daring raid was finally decided upon, for which General Obregon detached 200 of his men. He ordered them to drop into the mains which had long been dry. and to attempt to travel through th^m to an opening at the rear of the Za>- pata's main position. A spy informed tlie latter general of the ruse and after tlie men had been allowed to travel some distance in the maina, the full force of the water was turned on. drowning the invading force to a man.

There are more iitudents in actual attendance today than were ever enrolled in the ttnC'rc y««r at iiiiy previous year. About Hit students will enter High School next year to take the place of uljout :i.'i who will grud'uate this year. There .are aljout' 17.". pupils in tlie 8»>venUi gVade and over 100 in BA. .\inety to ninety-five per cent of tliose who complete the eiglitb grade work ent^r the High School. . • i •" I There is every reason to ,believe that (lie High Sciiooi will continue to grow :is it has for several years past.' It is conceded that no high school class should have over ar> students in it, and no laboratory class more than twenty. There are 1.5 classes In the lola High School that exceed 2r>. and laboratory classes number as high as 28. There is no chance to make these classes smaller without .organizing other classes and there Is no room for other classes without renting rooms outside of the, High School. This is what will have to be done in the near future unless room is provided ' There are only -six rooms in the present High School that are properly equipped for recitation purposes. Many recitations, are now being held in laboratories and In a smail office room. * The entire tiilrd Moor Is without provision for heating. The best asset that lola has is her reputation for good schools. We have recently lost some smelters and other industries but 'we can better afford to lose these than to lose our reputation for liaving good schools, and that is what is going to happen unless we make provision to take care of the hoys and girls wlio waul to intend lliKli School.
