Iowa Youth Dies
Of Injuries in
Fight Over Girl
"Hired Man Wins Battle
Over Employer's Daughter,
But Pays Toll of Encoun
ter With Life.
Conway, la., Dec. 2. (Special.)
Like knights of old, jousting with
the colors of a fair maiden on their
lance head. Lester D'Happart, 21,
farmer, and Lester March. 17, Sat
urday night met in what proved to
be mortal combat for D'llappart
over a fair maiden residing near
Conway. The two young men used
a more modern method of settling
their differences and battled with
bare fists before a throng of about
100 citizens of Conway and surround
ing country.
Efforts to flop the 'fight were halt
ed by the crowd and the battle con
tinued until March cried, "Enough."
March is alleged to have been
keeping company with the daughter
of D'llappart's employer and object
ed to her riding to town with the
"hired man." lie is said to have
thrown down the gage of battle to
D'Happart when they met in town
and his challenge was readily ac
cepted. Cheered on by a constantly
growing crowd of spectators whs
did not even pay war tax on their
free tickets, the two youths con
tinued the battle for nearly an hour.
Faces of both were slashed to
ribbons when March ended the en
counter with a weak gasp of
"Enough," forced through swollen
tips so that it could only be heard by
his adversary and occupants of the
ringside seats.
D'Happart, who had been oper
ated on a month previous, was taken
auddenly ill the next morning and
removed to a hospital in Creston
where he died yesterday. Attending
physicians stated his death was
caused by the bursting of the newlly
knit blood vessels.
Indignation is running high here
and the leading citizens of the town
have demanded an official investi
gation into why the youths were al
lowed to fight until one was mortally
injured. No arrests have been made
altho gh it is reported that the coun
ty attorney will swear out a techni
cal complaint against March, charg
ing manslaughter, pending a coro
ner's inquest and investigation.

rates here from $1.50 to $2 a 1,000

est and terminated in a public de

"Why Major Dalrymple himself

one of his most spectacular cases.
And he assisted in the indictment of
Cohen, as one of the members of

No Changes Will
Be Made at This
Time by League
Resolution Rejecting Consid
eration of Amendments to
Covenant Passed With
One Dissenting Vote.
Geneva. Dec. 2. A resolution re
jecting the consideration of amend
ments to the league covenant at this
session and providing for a commit
tee to study changes before )hc
meeting of the next assembly was
pnssed bv the assily of the league
at today's session with but one dis
senting vote.
In reporting the decision of the
league of nations assembly commit
tee on amendments to the league
covenant not to recommend changes
at this session, A. J. Balfour of
Great Britain forecast the possible
need of important changes in the
future. The covenant was not re
garded as perfect or immutable he
said, and the eventuality must' be
considered of the next assembly be
ing called upon to consider amend
ments of far greater importance
than those now pressed.
Amendments Needed.
The covenant, Mr. Balfour pointed
out, was framed remarkabl
rapidity and doubtless amendments
would be necessary, but the com
mittee found the moment inoppor
tune. Because thi committee re
jected' the amendments proposed by
the Scandinavian t countries it was
not to be considered that it dis
agreed with them.
If you amend the covenant, you
amend the treaty of Versailles which
gave .seal to the peace of the world,"
he said.
Experience Insufficient.
Another motive of the committee,
Mr. Balfour explainnd, was the con
viction that one year's experience in
the working of a covenant was in
sufficient to show just what amend
ments should be made and the com
mittee deemed it advisable to wait.
He said a commission which the
committee recommended to study
proposed amendments could report
to the council of the league, which
in turn would report to the next
meeting of the assembly at Geneva.
The date of this he mentioned as
September 1, next.
By referring the changes now pro
posed to a commission for sturdy,
Mr. Balfour thought the assembly
could establish a precedent 'of great
value to the next .assembly, which
might be asked to make more im
portant changes.
Delegates Hagerup of Norway
and Dr. Wurtemburg of Sweden
signified acceptance of the decision
of the committee regarding the

"The public statements of allied

war about rights and liberties of
small nationalities and the enuncia
tion of the doctrine of self-determination
have been widely disseminated
in the Philippines," the report said,
''and confidence in the prompt for

seems to offer future security for
Philippine independence."
