Washington. Aug. 5. Federal
prices for coal now are effective in 95
per cent of the producing fields, Sec
retary Hoover said today. Western
Kentucky operators, he added, have

bring about a speedy resumption of

he projected settlement plans fail. .
The meeting Monday in Cleveland,
"., of John L, Lewis, president of
he United Mine Workers, and other
i.nion chiefs with representatives of
:oi operators in the central com
petitive fields was looked upon as the
final independent peace effort of the
earring factions. It was believed
generally that should the Cleveland
conference fail President Harding
t-.ould take some drastic actioai
'toward ending the tieup of mines..
Drastic Action Planned.
, Washington, Aug. 5. Drastic ac
tion by the government to force the
' production of coal and avert, if pos
sible, the increasing menace of a coal
tianrine this winter will be taken by
President Harding next week, unless
in the meantime there are promising
ntiitations that a settlement of the
:oal strike can be effected through an
grecment between the mine workers
ind the operators.
At present there are no such in
timations. The president, however,
is willing to wait until after the con
ference between the representatives
of the mine workers and a few of the
operators at Cleveland on Monday.
If this produces no results which
promise the resumption of coal min
ing upon an extensive scale, the
president has decided, the time will
have come for the'intervention of the
government in the interest of the
May Seize Min's.
The president's plan, a., understood
by some of his advisers, will be to
take over a number of larger mines,
place United States troops in posses
sion of them and call upon miners,
" regardless of whether they are union
or nonunion men, to go to work for
the government, with full assurance
of adequate protection.
That this course will be pursued :s
now regarded as a certainty. It is
no secret among the president's close
friends and advisers that he has no
hope that the Cleveland conference
will advance the nation any closer to
an adequate fuel supply than it is at
Injunction Is Asked to
Stop Payment of Warrants
West Point, Neb.. Aug. 5. (Spe
cial.) A petition was filed in the
district court of Cuming county en
joining the county treasurer from
paying a number of warrants ' that
had previously been registered, to the
amount of over $250,000, issued to
the Standard bridge company. It is
alleged in the petition that these
warrants were illegally issued on the
grounds that they were far in excess
of 85 per cent of the levy for the cur
rent year. No restraining order from
the court has been issued.

Fifteen minutes after a picture like this one was taken of little Harold
Fchr, 5, only son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Fchr, 5117 Cuming street, yester
day afternoon, he lay dead, his head crushed by wheel? of an automobile
driven by his next door neighbor and man-playmate, Charles B. Avers,
5115 Cuming street.
Hitched to the wagon shown in the picture was Harold's pet goat.
Ayers had been playing with Harold, tossing him in the air and romp
ing with him. He went to get his car. Harold chatted with a workman
on the job at a new house near by, then ran off the curbing toward his
home. He dashed between two parked automobiles and was knocked
down by Ayers' car.
The injured bojj was rushed to Methodist hospital, but died on the
way. His father exonerates his neighbor and friend from any blame for
the accident. Police booked Ayers for reckless driving.
Harold finished the kindergarten class at Dundee school Iat June.
He was the darling: of the neighborhood. Tlaymatc and pal of his comrades,
Harold loved to have the lads don bathing suits and play in the water
spray on the lawn of his home. He was' as much the pet of the Ayers
household, next-door, as he was at home.
The youngster adored animals and onlv 15 minutes before the arri-

"Try and be the boy your mother

cards worn by nearly 4.500 boys at
tending a picnic given yesterday
afternoon in Elmwood park bv Oma

Only one boy of the vast throng
of young Americans fell short of
maternal expectations. This lone
youngster, in an unguarded moment,
took from a smaller boy a mouth
organ won in a race. He said he
just wanted to see if the instrument
would make a noise.
It was a wonderful aggregation of
youthful enthusiasm and was the

they were received by members of
the Elks, Boy Scouts and others who
volunteered to guide the celebrants
in the festivities.
The first event at the park was a
salute to the flag, led by Dr. M. J.
Ford, chairman of the social and
community welfare committee of the
Elks, under whose auspices the pic
nic arrangements had been made.
The boys raised right hands and
pledged loyalty to country and flag
and to be good citizens.

William Howard Taft Goes
Through City on Way West
The book was "The Hound of the
Baskervilles," by A. Conan Doyle, a
blood-curdling detective yarn.
The reader was William Howard
Taft, chief justice of the United
States supreme court.
"Pretty good story, isn't it?" he
asked, laying the volume aside when
newspapermen entered his Pullman
stateroom at noon yesterday while
he was here a moment on his way to
San Francisco to address the Ameri
can Bar association.
The former president declined to
discuss politics, chatted about Omaha,
and asked that his regards be pre

composed of the various Tightest par

torm of violence between Italy's two
extreme political elements fascisti
and communis! which hat swept
the country throughout the week, be
tsan to show some signs of abate
ment, leaving in its wake scores of
killed and thousand of wounded.
Reports from various part of the
.country, however, indicated that both
I tactions wore maintaining a defiant
attitude and it is impossible to pre
dict whether this apparent let-up in
hostilities means only a temporary
lull or whether there is ground for
hoping for a real settlement of the
difficulty. The abyss separating the
extreme parties has undoubtedly
been widened as a result of the short
lived general strike proclaimed- early
in the week throughout the country
in protest against reprisals that had
been carried out hy the fascisti
acainst their communist adversaries.
The situation thus created, it is be
lieved, will make the government's
efforts at pacification even more dif
ficult. The government announced shortly
after noon that order has been re
stored in Milan, Genoa and Ancona,
after desperate fighting had raged
for more than 24 hours. But reports
from other parts of the country
showed that hostilities were far from
over. Premier Facta's new cabinet

Improve Situation in North
Missoula. Mont., Aug. S. Forest
fire conditions were more favorable
for the fighting of forest fires in this
district than for several days past,
according to word received at district
No. 1 headquarters here. There has
been rain on some forests and the
cool, cloudy weather is aiding the
fire fighters. The Kootenai forest in
northwest Montana is offering the
greatest problem to the fighters now.
This fire, on Star creek, is burning
over 100 acres only, but is in an al
most inaccessible country.
Ten miles of trench built on the
St. Joe forest reserve at the scene of
the homestead fire, south of Avery,
Idaho, has confined the fire there. The
fighters here, however, have a high
wind to combat and sparks are flying
to the Fohl creek section, where
there has been no rain.
In the Blackfoot forest, rain has
helped and the fire in the Glacier
National park is now small and soon
will be on a patrol basis.
