A Call For 250,000 Volun

By Carl D. Groat
(failed Press staff correspondent)
Washington, June 20. A double re
sponsibility for the Carrizal battle ap
peared partly published today. Jt did
not, however, place such a burden on
the American forces as to assure
peace. On the contrary, developments
so snuf -a uiemseives mat it seems
likely President Wilson may find it
necessary to appear before conaress
oeiore tne weeks end,
A complete right about face by Car-
ranza can save the situation. The re
port oi Captain Morey, as ho lav sup
posedly dying on the Carrizal desert,
indicated to officials that the action
of the American force before Carrizal
might have been provocative.
Morey wrote that Captain Boyd un
der the impression that the Mexicans
would run when the Americans fired.
" We formed for attack," said Mor
ev's report.
Carrauza to Blame
On the other hand, the publication
of the American demands for the re
lease of 17 American prisoners from
Chihuahua showed that Carranea had
issued the order to General Trevino
not to permit the Americans to move
south, east or west. .
This' would place upon Cnrranza the
responsibility k'or tii Mexicans fir
ing and perhaps prove necessity for
Boyd's offensive.
Persons in touch with President Wil
son's views said he would delay going
before congress on a war mission until
Carrauza had had time to answer the
American ultimatum.
The charge in this message th.1t Car
ranza had acted with hostility in issu
ing the order to General Trevino gave
evidence that the administration be
lieves war the only answer if Carrauza
do not free the. Americana taken at
Carrizal, disavow that incident and
promise safety to the American forces
Troop trains are ready to tako
American militiamen to the border. I
Militia Going This Week
The bulk of the 100,000 militiamen'
ordered out will probably be either on
the line or en route before tne end o.
the. week. Everything possible is be
ing done to hasten the department of
the entire force.
These preparations, coupled with
war department activity, reflected the
view of armv men that trouble is In
