MONDAY, MARCH 25, I'.MG (AUK.) COUU1EH NEWS Father and Son To Be Executed Pair Is Scheduled To Hang For Slaying Of Resort Operator ff* FORT MADISON, la. (UP.)— A father and son are .scheduled to die on Ihe yallows nt Iowa state Prison March 29 for one of the most briitul crimes in Iowa history. A single pull of the lever by Dickinson county. t sheriff j ce Mc _ Quirk will send Philip Heincy. 72, and his son. William. 45. to their death for the confessed robbery- slaying of Robert Raebcl, Lake Okoboji resort operator, Dec 16 1944. If the execution is carried out it will be tlie first time in the state's history that a father and son have paid the supreme penalty for a joint crime. H would be the third double execution at the state penitentiary. When district judge Fred M Hudson passed sentence Feb. 9 1945. he said lie could find nomiti- <icar Washington Farmnotes WASHINGTON (UP) -To aid Ui'llcvnblc monthly lotul of 611,000.- ueeting the fanners' "tremendous ow units. Jiubtem" of adjusting their ex-' landed wartime pioductlon to peacetime needs, Ihe Agriculture Department has launched nil intensive search for additional Industrial uses of farm products. Thc department's bureau of agricultural and industrial chemistry, established in 1938. Is carrying on :his work through research Inborn- lories in each of the four major farm producing «rcas of Ihe coun- I-actose Use Increased Due lo this Increased yield and try. "The need for search is greater today than ever before because fanners are faciny the tremendous problem of adjusting expanded wartime production to normal peacetime needs," C. s. Speh, assistant bureau chief, said recently. "This is particularly true in sec- lions where n larfc acreage has been devoted to the production of war crops. New outlets, or even slight expansion of present outlets (or some commodities, might aid materially in the conversion program." Aided in War Program The laboratories were built for peacetime research, but, as the case with most, government nyciicirs, all resources were put lo work on national defense and war produc- improvcd methods of production, tlie wholesale price of penicillin dropped from $'20 to about 60 cents for each 100,000 units nnd the stor- flBe life of the dru<; has increased frotn three to 18 months.

Long I'rison Hccorils At the hearing they pleaded that Ihcy bad no intention of killing Hacbcl, but just wanted to ".scare him." Police said they had long prison records, having served time in Iowa and Missouri. Virtually every avenue of escape for the two men has been closed. Gov. Robert D. Blue refused to fcfrommute the death sentence fol- * lowing a recent hearing. He could, however, stay the execution if evidence is produced lo show lhat the men are mentally Incompetent, in refusing to intercede, the Governor said that the "record of these men shows that if the death penalty is imposed, it certainly is justified this case." The Hiencys have made no legal move to escape the gallows. There j has been no appeal to the Supreme Court on their behalf, although the Rev. Herman V. Bongers. Catholic chaplain at the prison, appealed to the Governor to commute the sentence. Pntsecutor Urged Death During the hearing. K. B. Welty, who was appointed by the stale to defend the men, who were without funds, urged commutation of sentence on the grounds that the men were of limited intelligence. He told the Governor that he couldn't let March 29 go by without making every effort to gain a commutation for the two men. this type of re- being used annually in the products.,,, „,„.. -.r..-l uoil of ,, ellld | Ul ,. Tlie cost of the bureau's research In this field amounted to about $100.000. Tlie value of penicillin, produced last year is estimated at $100.000.000. The number and valuo of human lives saved as it result of a laboratory's research cannot, be estimated. An example of the profitable utilization of waste material can be found in a new poultry feed developed at the Eastern laboratorj at Philadelphia. Laboratory scientists, investigating waste vegetable leaves, fount that they are high In protein, containing from 30 to :IG per cent in some cases. Tills is a considerably higher protein content than the 20 per cent found In alfalfa-leaf meal, and approaches the 40-45 per cent in oil meals . Research, revealed that the leaves arc also high in carotene, or pro- vitamin A. and in riboflavin. both of which arc essential in poultry feed.

Why not working men whatever they ask? All trades, especially farmers, waul •° draw high wages because (hat's I'll' key lo uood limes. Fanners, e fields feed (he workers, have markets nnd prosperity when prospers. ii' answer Is not hard: Tlie workers' wages, just like Ihe owner's profits, come oul of what Jolm Q. public, will pay for what be wnnl.s. If the price is too steep for John, then there's no sale and no pioflt.s and presently no wages.

Th c Philadelphia laboratory has extracted a drug called riitln, cf- feclive in the treatment of conditions arising from high blood pressure, from flue-cured tobacco. In a continued search for other feasible sources of riitin, however, the laboratory studied the leave and blossoms of green buckwheat plants. The buckwheat proved lo be of a greater source of rutin than the tobacco. Under present conditions $10 worth of buckwheat plants wil produce as much rutin as $1,001) worth of tobacco. Tlie laboraton prepared about 20 pounds of riitti agricultural products—cdrn steeping lirtuor. a by-product obtained from the manufacture of corn starch, nnd lactose or milk suuar. Penicillin for the first six months of 1043 totaled slightly in excess of 400.000.000 units, or enough to treat about 400 serious cases. By the last five months of 1045, thanks to the laboratory's work, production has reached the almost unbc- week, during which police in virtually every Midwestern state were alerted. They were apprehended at Quincy, and when confronted with evidence gathered by state agents and police, confessed, following a 90-minute interrogation. In the confession, the men admitted that as Rachel came up from the basement, they shouted at him. "this is a stick-up," and the younger Heincy fired. Raebcl The prosecuting attorney, Waller Kedell, called it the most "cold-blooded murder I have ever heard of," ant! urged that the death penalty be imposed. Raebcl. a Go-year-old resort operator who formerly employed the younger Ileincy, was slain and his ^vife was brutally beaten on a cold rfc-inlcr night in 1944. Mrs. Rachel, • who had been slugged on the head, managed to crawl to a telephone and call officers before she lapsed into unconsciousness. That started a manhunt which led officers through Iowa. Illinois and Missouri before they apprehended the Heincys at Quincy, 111. There were few clues wfien officers, aroused by the brutality of the crime, began the manhunt. An autopsy showed that Rachel had been shot through the neck and that after the shooting, had been beaten with a hammer. Evaded Police for Week Officers first advanced a robbery (hcory, but a few hours after the. manhunt was started, they found that the younger Heincy. who had been discharged by Rachel, was seen in the Okoboji vicinity a short time before the slaying. The Heincys evaded the police for a of medicinal purity from freshb harvested buckwheat plnns and distributed it to more than 100 myslcians and pharmacologists for .ise In clinical studies last year. Research on this drug has advanced to Ihe point where It is low feasible to produce it on a commercial scale. Thc Kastcrn laboratory estimates that something like 10.000 pounds of riilin will be required to meet Lhe medicinal needs this year, and an overall production of more than 1,250.000 pounds a year may even lually be required. Tlic bureau describes Ihis as T "definitely a new use for buckwheat," and Is hopeful that many new uses will be found for the postwar years ahead.
