For More Than Half
a Century
Contractor and Employe Are
Accused of Contributing
to Girl’s Delinquency.
By a Staff Correspondent of The Star.
EAST RIVERDALE, Md„ June S.—
A 60-year-old contractor and one of
his employes are being held in Hy
attsville Jail today under $2,000 b6nd
each on a charge of contributing to
the delinquency of a minor after the
former allegedly attempted to effect
a marriage between his employe, and
a 15-year-old schoolgirl who has been
missing from her home here since
Tuesday.
The contractor, James R. Russell,
was arrested yesterday by Pvt. Rich
ard A. Pearson of the Prince Georges
County police force and State Police
Corpl. J. F. Blackistone on a warrant
sworn out by the father of the girl.
The warrant also named Herbert
Street, 20, of Brentwood, who was ar
rested later at his home.
At the same time police began a
widespread search for the girl, Florida
Agnes Hennen, at the request of her
father Gilbert Hennen, 42, who stated
his daughter had been away from
home since Tuesday. Police said Rus
sell told them he had given the girl
money to visit her relatives in Cum
berland, but she could not be located
there, Officer Pearson said.
The policeman said Russell said he
made two efforts to have the girl and
Street marry, but the latter had re
fused to go through with the cere
mony. Her father also has objected
to the marriage, Mr. Pearson said.
The officer also quoted Street as
saying after his arrest, “I didn’t want
to have anything to do with the girl.”
The contractor told police he made
one attempt to have the couple marry
when he saw the girl on her way to
school Tuesday morning, and drove
her to Street’s home. He said he saw
her again the next day in Mount
Rainier and again drove her to Street’s
residence.
Both times he met with a refusal
on the part of the youth, police were
! told.

Wound Turns
Detective to
Law Career
James E. Kenney, retired detective
sergeant of the police force, owes his
inclusion among the 200 persons to
receive law degrees from Columbus
University Thursday to the mistake
of a fellow officer who shot him in
the arm on a June night three years
ago.
Mr. Kenney was on duty at head
quarters that night when he was dis
patched to investigate a housebreak
ing at an apartment house at Elev
enth and N. streets N.W.
He was moving down the dimly lit
corridor when a patrolman from No.
2 precinct, "entering the building on
the same case, mistook him for the
reported prowler and opened fire.
The shot shattered two bones in
Mr. Kenney's elbow, sewering the
nerves controlling the wrist and hand
and he emerged from the hospital
a month later with a disabled limb.
He was retired on a pension.
Although he was then 33 years old,
Mr. Kenney enrolled in the law school
at Columbus the following Septem
ber and is being graduated this month
with honors. He lives at 3347 Eight
eenth street N.W., and plans to open
law offices in the District on admis
sion to the bar.
