WOMAN WINS SUIT
FOR FATHER’S BODY
Brothers Fought to Prevent;
Burial in Family Plot
After Desertion.
By the Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, May 29.—Judge
James Gay Gordon of the Court of
Common Pleas yesterday awarded to j
Miss Annie Gwyn Boyd the ]wdy of
her father, Thomas A. Gwyn. for the
possession of which she had brought
Injunction proceedings against her two
brothers. Henry L. Gwyn and Allie
L. Gwyn, to prevent their burying
It in a Philadelphia cemetery instead
of in the father's natjve state, Ten
nessee.
Judge Gordon declared in his de
cision that the brothers’ action was
prompted by ’'bitter and vengeful ani
mosity,” and that for many years they
had nourished such feelings. The
body will be removed by Miss Boyd
to Nashville from the vault here, in
which it was temporarily deposited
after the father's death last Whiter.
The brothers’ refusal to permit the
removal of the body to Nashville, it
was brought out in testimony, was
based on bitterness engendered by
their struggles with life after their
father left nis family 17 years ago.
The mother, who obtained a divorce
after the desertion, joined her daugh
ter in asking that the body be buried
in the family plot.

70 NEWSPAPER MEN
GUESTS OF COOLIDGE
' White House Correspondents Are
j Taken on Trip Down the River on
the Presidential Yacht. .
More than 70 White House news
! paper correspondents were the guests
!of President Coolidge on the yacht
I Mayflower yesterday afternoon. The
weather was ideal and the cruise down
the Potomac to Indian Head and back
was thoroughly enjoyed by all on
board.
The trim vessel, with the President
standing near the bridge, left Its dock
at the navy yard at 2 o.’clock, and be
fore it had nosed out of the Anacostla
River the customary 21-gun salute
was fired for the President. As Mount
Vernon was passed the Executive and
his guests lined the starboard side of
the ship and stood at attention, while
the ship's hell was sounded: "Taps”
was played by a bugler, and the band
played the national anthem.
The President wore his yachting cap
during the cruise. He was on deck
■ most of the time, mingling with his
|guests, talking principally about points
!of interest along the way. Everett
] Panders, secretary to the President,
also was a member of the party. On
'the return trip to Washington a buffet
luncheon was served.
Whales May Supply MacMillan Party
With Engine Fuel in Waters of Arctic
How many miles to a whale, not
how many miles to a gallon, Is the
problem of navigation with the
Bowdoln, according: to Cnmdr, Don
ald B. MacMillan, leader of the
MacMillan Arctic expedition under
the auspices of the National Geo
graphic Society.
Oil-burning: engines of most mod
ern ships are a bit particular about
their diet. Heavy Texas they de
mand, but the Bowdoln engines are
omnivorous. With almost mathe
matical precision, Comdr. MacMil
lan knows that If he can get so
many miles on a whale, he re
quires a certain number of wal
ruses and a small herd of seal to
get an equal distance. The
Bowdoln burns seal oil, walrus oil,
whale oil and petroleum with equal
facility. MacMillan does not an
ticipate having to harpoon mileage,
since the ship will carry full tanks
of oil from Wlscasset, but the
Arctic Is a land of emergencies, so
no safety factor is overlooked.
“We killed a whale at Utah last
year, tried out the blubber and ob
tained To gallons of oil which came
in handy for the Bowdoln's en
gines." said Comdr. MacMillan.
Time prevented the conversion
of the Peary from a coal-burner
to an 011-bumer. The Peary will
take on its main coal supply at
Sydney, Nova Scotia. That cargo,
however, spems much like carrying
coals to Newcastle. Two hundred
miles north of Etah there Is a 22-
foot seam of coal on the Green
land coast, and Comdr. MacMillan
himself discovered a soft llgnltlc
coal in southern Axel Heiberg
Hand.
