NATIONAL BOARD MEN WILL GO ON BORDER DUTY  Effect Will Be to Release 35,000 Seasoned Troops for Service in Troubled Mexico; Brings Forces up to 132,000  DI^IARATION IN FEW DAYS?  Action by the United States Regarded as Beginning of Actual Intervention in Mexico; Navy Rushing Preparations  WASHI.NGTOX, .June lit.—There is feverish haste, tensL anxiety and much speculation in army and navy circlo.s here today foHowing the order of President Wilson for mobilization of the entire national guard forces of the nation along the Mexican border.  This action was accepted as the beginning of actual intervention in Mexico. A declaration of war on Mexico within the next few days was believed by many "officials to be a strong probability.  The open hostility of Carranza generals and civil ofHciaIsi n threatening to attack the Arjicrican expo ditionary army and th.e evidences of participation by Carranza officers in the repeated border raids inspired the call for troops, which will result in mobilizing practically the entire military strength of the nation for the Mexican border.  Army officers are confident that the military will be used to guard j the border, releasing the ?.,"),000 seasoned regular troops now on patrol duty, so that they may reinforce General Pershing and clear up Northern Mexico of bandit )jand.=.  White House Parley  Secretary of War. Baker sent his telegrams to the (Jovernors of the several States and issued a public statement, announcing the call to the National Guard, after an e.x-tended conference at the White House with the President ye.sterday afternoon.  Secretary Baker had previously been in conference the greater part of the day with Hugh L. Scott, chief  of staff ;_____Brigadier, - Genoral- Alfred  ^L. Mills, chief of division of militia affairs, atid other oflicors.  ^Navy Mobilizing Fleet Tiile the War Department was moving to rusli an army to the. Mexican border tlie Xa\y dci)art-began inobilizinc; its on the Atlantic and to be ready for any Mexico.  Army staff ollicers were of the opinion that the "lid is blown off" the Mexican situation by tlie President's action.  Carranza, grown desperate as the foundations of his administration crumbled, encourages moving on the American forces. He has not turned his hand to prevent the repeated raids by Mexican soldiers on American soil.  Carranza Given Ano^er Chance Secretary Baker's statement says the ,i>reaident has called out the National Quard because "of the dta-turl>ed conditions on the Mexican border and In order to assure complete •protection for all Americans."  The statement in the call to the Governors and the ofiicial announcement of Secretary Baker that there is , no intention at this time of  sending the newly mobilized (roop,-; .-iM-oss (he lin«', was inspire;!, it is lelieved for thf purpor-e of giving ('iirrawza one last chanc«' to exert every military means at his comi-;iiaiH! to protect Amcvican lives and property from Mexican agj^rossion.  This was accepted as a diplomat-i;- mo\e to iwrmit ■ ("arran/.a to chiinge front and save his lace before he is forced to change front by an army of overwhelmiiu', num-l.-ers.  Whether the State Doparttneut or White House expects ('arranza to change his attitude is not kiiowu. but it is known that the arniy has no illusions on that scoi-e.  PARADING FOR PREPAREDNESS  THE LADIES WIN OUT  i-'atjirday evening the Corona foiintry club was the scene of a merry gathering, when ithe members of the club met to enjoy whist. It had previously been arranged thai the ladies should play against the gentlemen ihembers of the club and the losers were to treat the others to a dinner.  The playing was brisk throughout thg evening bat the ladies once more proved their superiority over the sterner sex and when th« score had been counted thel adies had .{.'ii» points while the men had but and now Frank Herkelrath, chairman of the losing side, is busy arranging the details of a swell dinner. The date has not been decided, but will be soon.  Light refreshments were served to the guests who numbered thirty. The affair was in the hands of .Miss Elizabeth .\ndrews.  Perhaps this city is different from others, but have you noticed how optimistic the business men of the city are? Many of our citizens visit other cities in the valley and quite often they have occasion to iufiuire of a merchant in that town regarding business conditions. Invariably he says business Is very, very poor. Of course there are few of our merchants who could not handle more trad^ than they are at present receiving but they are not complaining. They are a cheerful 1 lot. taking them altogether, and it is no wonder that traveling men like to reach Corona ahead of his competitor. They do more business here than almost any other city in _Lhls valleys. -BQ^nH ttiat"~stieak well for a city of r,rirU)?

Kcr, NatkottOBaak Ofy;  The many friends of Orson Van-derhoof will be glad to learn that he Is the owner and proprietor of a well established harness store at Corona, California. Three years ago he found employment with A. H. Larrabee, who conducted the leading saddle and harness store of that town and on the third of this month he purchased and took possession of the business of his former employer. There is no doubt as to Orson making a success in that line, as he is a thorough master of his chosen trade, having worked and completed his education with that veteran harness mak«r, J. B. Neptune, of this city, where he was employed for a number of years. Here's our hand, Orson.—From the Newton (Illinois) Mentor of June 14.  Mr. and Mrs. Clarence White motored to Los Angeles Saturday where they spent a couple of days visiting with friends.
