M U.S. READY TO INTERVENE IN CUBA GOVT, SEEKS TO UNITE RIVAL FACTIONS Students Threaten To Fire on American Marines By United Pratt Cuba's revolutionary executive committee Friday formally reorganized the nation's military command, arranged to feed the hungry and declared that danger of United States intervention had been avoided. Mexico then recognized the new revolutionary government, the first recognition by any foreign power. Acting in the name of the executive committee of five, Sergio Carbo announced the appointment of three prominent revolt figures, two sergeants and one lieutenant, to command of the army and navy. Carbo said the committee plans eventually to convoke a constitutional assembly to restore peace and normality to Cuba. Constitutional reform is the most serious political issue. Havana was tranquil and the palace deserted. HAVANA, OLE)—Cubr.'s revolutionary government appealed urgently to army officers and political leaders of all parties Friday to unite in its support Only Tjy united action could order be'pre- served and American intervention avoided, the government said. Tired after thret days work with little sleep, the two university professors, lawyer, newspaper man and banker who comprise the executive committee government engaged in a series of conferences from early Thursday night until 4:05 a. m. Friday. Political leaders of half a dozen partjes emerged 'from the palace non-commital.

Parkhurst, Crusader, Walks ' * Sleep Killed In ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. OLE) — Dr. Charles H. Parkburst, fighting preacher and reformer, who shocked the country in the 90's with blistering denunciations of vice and Tammaay hall, was killed Friday while walking In bis sleep. He walked out of his bedroom in the home of his nephew. Winthrop Parkhurst, and passed thru an open window onto the roof of a porch from which he fell to the ground. Dr. Parkhurst was 91, feeble but still possessing a sharp tongue. The oratory from his pulpit in the 90*s broke Tammany hall's grip on New York city, exposed a liaison between organized vice and politics, and launched a reform era that extended from one end of the country to the other. Parkhnrst had a gift for phrase making. the PC's, when it was fashionable to shudder at a public glimpse of a feminine ankle, he made the discreet precincts of his Madison Square Presbyterian church, reverberate with "This city is hell with the lid off." the jsbnnnfitee in. night and put power.

The Destroyer Sturtevant was at Santiago, "at the other end of the island. Other destroyers were on the way to various ports. .

President Roosevelt's firm attitude that any threat to foreign interests would result in landing of American marines and blue-jackets from the fleet speeding to Cuban waters brought the turbulent Cuban political situation to a crisis. Jealous of Cuba's sovereignty, and fearful over threats from, communists, students and even women that they would fire on any Americans who -landed, the five executive cbmmitteemf n who seized power Sunday . night sought to bring agreement among all parties on a government that might win American recognition. While conference proceeded 18 American seamen were erecting on top of the American embassy a beam signal system by means of which messages could be winked to warships in the harbor for transmission to Washington. <J) " McChesney Case Recalled by Suit 'Filed at Iowa City IOWA CITY (U.E)—Prof. W.

Saturday, and considered at a public hearing Monday afternoon but be closed the door to further attempts to delay promulgation of the code by hair-splitting wrangling, and said that if agreement was not reached he would Impose the code arbitrarily. The code establishes a new basis of employer-worker relations, and eliminates destructive' competitive practices. It provided a 36-hour week, either averaged from six-month weekly working periods of 32 hours and- 40 hours each, or by straight 36-hour weeks thruout the year.

Kraschel Opens Fight On Direct Buying by Big Packers Outlines Own Idea of Long Range Program for Iowa's Agriculture "Unless they can convince me I am wrong, and I don't think they can, I expect to continue this fight until every livestock concentration yard maintained by the big Chicago packers is swept from the state of Iowa," declared Lieut. Gov. Nels G. Kraschel in an address to 2,500 people at Slater Thursday night. The address was the climaxing feature of the annual dairy day celebration sponsored by the Slater Cooperative creamery for its patrons and other residents of the Slater community. The lieutenant governor, who had spoken previously Thursday at Norway and Marion, declared that the packers were using the concentration yards to buy hogs at their own price. "They split up the territory," he said, "in order to have no competition out here where the hogs are grown. Then the fact that they have purchased a substantial part of their requirements direct gives them a chance to hang back and not compete actively in the Chicago or other central markets. The result is low prices there which in turn affect the prices paid at the concentration points." "There was a time not so very long ago," Kraschel said, in an interview after his address, "when the packers' buyers In Chicago were on the market at 5 o'clock In the morning. They had to be in order to get hogs to start slaughtering when the ment went to work at the packing plants.

That failing, the cities must step in, then the states and finally the federal government, he said. Simultaneously,. it was revealed that jobs for several'million additional workers would be available before Christmas.

Countries WASHINGTON <ttB— The Ainer- ican government considered ths likelihood of United States intervention in Cuba to be increasing hourly Friday. A vast military machine — 29 warships, a fleet of bombing planes, a. regiment of marines — awaited the zero hour. Official observers were inclined to expect a new revolt in Cuba.' which would result in overthrow of the revolutionary "government of sergeants" and jeopardize- foreign lives and property. It the danger was too great, intervention would become a reality quickly. But it was believed that if a contender for power struck quickly and effectively and Ret up a strong government without much fighting, intervention might be 'avoided. Reports from Havana that tn» return of Provincial President Carlos Manuel De Cespedes to the government was a possibility, brot no comment in official quarters where every effort was being made to avoid the appearance of trying to .influence Cuban politics. Cespedes was satisfactory to the United States when he succeeded former President Gerardo Machado, and it was believed his return to power would be welcome here. President Roosevelt and state der partment officials still hoped that intervention could be avoided, but against their hopes was the necessity of protecting 7,000 American lives and * 1,000,000,000 in American property. Under the Platt amendment America is responsible before the world for the maintenance of law and order in Cuba. While civilian officials hoped for the best, the military was prepared for. instant action. ; . .vessels.^ were; in Judge Orders Continuance, Who's Who?
