KENYON IS DEAD CUBA GUARDING AGAINST EXCUSE FOR II. S, ACTION Secy. Swanson Leaves After Brief Stop in Havana Havana O)—Cuban opposition to American intervention solidified Saturday. The executive committee government sought to prevent any excuse tor it, but used the possibility of intervention as an argument to win the support of political leaders and army officers. Havana was completely normal. It was perhaps even more calm than in the days when the secret service men of Gerardo Machado ruthlessly maintained order. , Yet the situation was one of utmost delicacy. It was typified by two isolated incidents Friday night While the cruiser Indianapolis was eaeaming into the harbor with Secretary of Navy Swanson aboard an unknown Cuban on the water front in an ineffectual symbol of protest fired a small calibre pistol at it. The Indianapolis stayed only two hours, proceeding on to Panama.

It was praised by William Green, president of the American Federation of labor, who said .any complaints,,.against it would coine from operators. They were not long in, coming. Walter Jones, liason man for the so-called Appalachian group of operators, whose mines have been non-union, gave Johnson a .letter which the administrator read and hurled to the floor. Then Tie summoned the operators. • .It was understood the operators told Johnson they considered the code so "bad" that they would not bother to submit written suggestions of changes before the deadline at 6 p. m.

In the balance was not Cuba's- future, but the entire American diplomatic policy in Latin America. Officials fear a display of American military strength -/ould arouse the old fear of th« "Colossus of the- North" and jeopardize all efforts at economic unity for the countries of the western hemisphere.

Gasoline prices rose one cent. With the Texas and Sun companies posting prices of ?1.09 per barrel in the Conroe field, the much- talked goal of $1 oil was not only realized but surpassed.

Within the last two years oil has sold as low as 10 cents .a barrel in the last field. The Stanolind Crude Oil Purchasing company, a subsidiary of the Standard Oil of Indiana, led the new increases with a general advance in prices of 15 cents per barrel.

"Character-building work and leisure time activities, because of the shortened working day and the large number of people still employed, have become even more necessary than in prosperous years. "These things mean that greater effort than ever before must be made in communities which are raising funds for welfare work this fall and winter in order to provide a program adequate for the reconstruction period.''

Harding SEBASCO, Me. (U.E) — William S. Kenyon, 64, of Fort Dodge, la., judge of the United States district court of the eighth district, died of heart disease at his summer horns here Saturday after several weeks illness. He was appointed to the bench by the late President Harding in 1922, rescigning from the United States senate. Judge Kenyon was one of Iowa's most prominent republican lawyers and statesmen. Like the late Senator Jonathan P. Dolliver, who also made Fort Dodge his home. Judge Kenyon was a fighter, a foe of,liquor and leader of the senate progressive bloc. Hi's most prominent achievement in Washington was joint authorship of the Webb-Kenyon act which undertook prohibition enforcement prior to ratification of the eighteenth amendment. Judge Kenyon was Ohio born, June 10, 1869, but came farther west with his parents, Fergus and Hattie Kenyon. He was educated at Grinnell college and then went to the University of Iowa law schooL The boom days of the railroad caught him and he became railroad attorney for the Illinois-Central system. His rise was rapid. From Webster county prosecuting attorney to district judge were swift steps upward and in 1910 he became assistant United States at- rorney-general. The tragic deatn of Senator Dolliver in 1910 was the turning point in Kenyon's career. The thirty- fourth general Iowa assembly Apr"'! 12, 1911, elected Kenyon to fill Senator Dolliver's unexpired term.
