Father And Son Die On Gallows Executed Early Today In Iowa For Slaying Of Resort Operator FT. MADISON. la.. March 28. (UP>—A father and son. steadfiisl companions in robbery, kidnaping, and murder, were hanged logether nl dawn today in the Iowa State 'cnitentiary. The executed men were Phillip icincy, 72, and his son. William. 45, bolh illiterate Missouri backwoods- nen. It wns the first simultaneous hanging of :\ father and son for :he same crime on American criminal records. The gallows traps for both men were sprung by a sheriff who pushed AVO levers at once at G:01 a.m. C.ST. The son plunged downward a split second ahead of his father. Three physicians pronounced the father dead at 6:12 a.m. and the son at 6:13 a.m.- " : Neither man showed any emotii nor said a word ns they walked slowly across the prison yard, climbed to the gallows, and awaited the adjusting of the hoods and nooses Thc Heincys were sent to the gallows for killing Robert W. Kaebel 65, a resort operator at West Okoboji. la., during a robbery Dec. 10. 1944. The father and son had spent more than 20 years trying to make crime a paying proposition, but.' even tlie offense which cost them their lives was a financial flop. They took a train from Iheir home at Quincy. 111., to Spirit Lake. Is., near the slaying scene. Their round trip rail fare was S37.3G- The robbery loot was $28. Net loss: $9.36. The execution took place inside ii small stockade within the prison yard before about 100 witnesses. Al 6 a.m. the bells of St. Joseph's Church near the prison began peal- to j ing the angelus. At almost that lomenl, lhe warm, spring sun hit he top of the prison wall. A slight ircexc wispcd small clouds over- lead. It was the kind of a morning in Iowa farmer and his son might « going fishing together on the .lississippi River which rolls by the prison. Father and son were transferred rom their death row cells at 8 p.m last night, and spent the remaining hours of their lives in an Inspector's office with a guard and Chaplain Herman V. Bongers, who converted them to Catholicism whei they entered death row a year ago Thc office was furnished with tw cats. Their last meal consisted of steak vegetables, potatoes, cake, pie am coffee. Warden Percy Lainson said sev eral relatives had written to claim the bodies, but it was understood they w'ould bc buried in a Catholic cemetery here as they had requested. Before their arrest on the murder charge the Heincys. father and son, had stuck together through 20 years of crime. "So far as John L. Lewis Is concerned there is not only no effort to reach an agreement but every effort to prevent an agree-1 ment any time soon," the association said. "Tlie tactics he is pursuing arc collective bargaining in lame only—shadow without substance." Tlie bulletin said Lewis had "contemptuously" rejected a management wage offer and called a strike hat "within n short time will raise tiavoc with industry, transportation and general business and cause public inconvenience of incalculable magnitude." Thc association said the rejected wage offer would have increased the miners' basic pay scale 15 to 18 cents an hour. "It. is now clear that Lewis Is playing for higher stakes." the association said. "He refused to discuss wages and hours until his demands have been met for a royalty—a levy upon every ton of coal mined—whereby there may be a continuing flow of millions of dollars into his hands over and above the millions now checked off fof- the miners wages for union dues." Th c association said that if Lewis wins the royalty "He will bc a dictator more powerful than any America has yet known." .povcrnment officials said their hope ,,now was to keep lhe walkout as short as possible to prevent another reconversion slowdown. They were without hope of averting the.' strike .

Although mine strikes were settled by seizure dur- ng the war, H was doubted that similar action would be equally successful now. borcalis wns seen during Wednesday night bul no report, on such lights were made here.
