Sandino Last Obstacle Sandino and his band, operat ing in the hills in the northwest ern corner of Nicaragua, had con stituted the obstacle to complete pacification of the country ever since Henry L. Stimson, acting as Mr. Coolidge's personal represen tative, managed last year to In duce two warring political factions in Nicaragua to abandon civil war in return for a guarantee of a fair and American-supervised election this fall. Admiral Sellers' report added that practically all Insurgent arm ed bands had surrendered, leav ing the country free from any. ac tive .or armed oppositioa-ta Ameri can efforts to stabilize Nicaragua before actually holding the elec tion next November.
