There is no disposition on the governor's part, it is believed, to regard Hauptmann's death house statements as any more than a hopeful prelude to a much-sought full confession." The newspaper said Hauptmann's confession cattle as the result of, the efforts of three men—Governor Hoffman of New Jersey; Ellis H..Parker, Burlington county (N. J.) chief of detectives, and Col, Mark O. Kimberling, chief warden of the New Jersey slate prison at Trenton. The substance of the purported admission in part: "A few days after the kidnaping, Fisch hinted to him (Hauplmann) that he knew something about the crime. A dny or so later Fisch said that he knew the kidnaper who, he said, was afraid to try to collect any ransom because 'something has happened to the baby.' 'Still, later Fisch produced a ransom note, with symbols. This, Fisch! said, was a first draft of the note left by the kidnaper i nthe Lindbergh nursery. "Fisch added that the kidnaper had intended to kidnap the baby while the Lindberghs were in Lawrenceville, N J. When this fell through and the Lindberghs moved into their new home in Hopewell, it was necessary for tlie kidnaper to construct n third section to his ladder, as the original Iwo sections wore not high enough. "Fisch suggested lo Hauptmann that the two try to collect some ransom. Haupmann agreed. Fisch imitated the handwriting in the note he had in his possession, copied the ransom symbols, i and sent the series of ransom notes to i Dr. John F. Condon. i "Presumably, although this is not I specifically known to the Post, Hauptmann confessed at this point that it was lie who collected the $50,000 from Dr. Condon in Woodlawn cemetery. "Since he credits Fisch with knowing the .symbols and the kidnaper and with writing the notes, the only excuse lor Hauptmann's inclusion in the plot must have been to act as contact man. "After collecting the ransom ,Haupl- mann's .story continued) it was agreed that Hauptmann should act as treasurer, hide the money, and try to pass as much as possible through his brok- j erage account and in dealing with tradesmen. "Hauplmann g;we Fisch $2,000' from the brogerago account in November, 1933, so that Fisch could sail for his native Germany. <He died there a month later). "Hauptmann says he did not tell this story al his trial because he feared that if he admitted the exortion it would increase his chances of being conviced for murder. "Hauptmann says he never learned from Fisch the identity of the kidnaper. Hi.s reported words on that point are: "On my baby I swear I had nothing to do with the kidnaping. I can't name any accomplices in that crimp because I had nothing to do with it.' 1 WE DRIVERS 'A Series of Brief bisciuiiions on tttktlit,,-- c«ett>tA.HtAS^»t^, Comfort" and'.pt&tture of, t}t* Motoring-ttnbiie, tit . by.

Fpr nobody knows better than railroads how important it is tq.bs able to.stop'when you have, to stop. • Now,.lf we think Of it in a certain light, we people who own automobiles ar.e 'nit, winning little transportation systems, of our own. , . ..just like the-railroads and airlines and bus companies. Home is thd main terminal and there- are lots of stops along the line ... flag stops,-you might say t and regular soiled-' uled stops—like the office, the grocery' store, the school the theatre, and our friends' houses. Just like the railroads, one of the main things we need: to look out for-is our brakes. Of course, everybody knows this and yet somehow or other we're apt to. oe a little careless about it. Not that brakes don't give us plenty of notice when they're going to need: adjustment. As time goes on we find thnt we can.push the pedal lower and lower,,till after a ""'"' while we> can.shove it down almost to the floorboards before the brakes take hold. Even then we sometimes wait quite a while before we have them adjusted. It jUst seems to be human nature to put off things like that. They tell us the result is that one-third of a)l cars on streets and highways at any given time have something wrong with their brakes. The trouble is that when.we let our brakes go like that,, all of a sudden we may have to. make an emergency stop, and we may find it rather embarrassing. _ Engineers say that if we realized what goes on in.brakes.we would see why we ought to keep them checked up. As they explain, it's a story of momentum and friction,, the same old forces we've talked about before. They say that when we get'going we build up a certain energy in the form of momentum. Now when we want to stop, we can't just destroy that energy, because, scientists tell us, Nature never lets any of its energy be destroyed We can only convert it into some other form o*<=nergy What brakes really do is to. convert speed-energy into heat-energy. When we push, down on the brake pedal we press; the brake lining against 'the brake drums and this creates friction that changes the energy to heat. When we have changed all the speed energy to heat, then we come to a stop. Now modern brakes are very powerful; In fact, a 100-horsepower car will have about 500-horsepower brakes. They can stop us pretty quickly even from high speeds. But when they do, they simply change those speeds into a great deal of heat, in a ""*our ' BRAKE DESIGN ' MULTIPLIES FOOTkPRESSURE X OVER IOO TIMES It s easy to see that heat like that can cause a lot of trouble. Some of us may think it's fun to rush up s to sudden stops, but we might as well realize that we have to pay for that kind of fun in excessive brake wear. It simply doesn't pay to build up brake heat a lot faster than it can be thrown off. And we certainly get hardly anything back in time saved. For instance if were going 30 miles an hour, our brakes can stop us in 40 feet if they are all right; but it takes them less than two seconds longer to stop us in twice that distance. How much better it is, under any normal circumstances, to begin to apply the brakes a few seconds earlier and, with gradually increasing pressure, bring our car to an easy stop. As a matter. of.fact, smooth, gradual stopping wherever the circumstances' permit, is generally taken as a sign of, a. good driver. Here and There (Continued from page one) The Khyber pass, gateway to the plains of India from Afghanistan, is a narrow defile winding between high cliffs of shale and limestone, now threaded by road and rail. WAUUN NEUON-HUtKINS LAUNDRY COMPANY citizen's scheme of existence almost the only credit item left—and tho only lump sum payment, that he to make—is taxes. And it isn't surprising, therefore, that when the government hangs onto a system everybody else has abandoned the people manage to pay everything they owe except what they owe to the government. The sales tax, however, is a means of applying the "time payment" system to,the support of government. It gets the tax collected, for the reason that the payments are small but frequent. The biggest fight that the taxpayers will have is not against the principle of the sales tax, but the inevitable attempt of the politicians to raid it— to divert the tax from its original purpose. It is The Star's idea that whenevei the purpose of any tax is changed in any degree whatsoever that the entire tax should first be repealed and then resubmitted for passage. B'or example, there is a movement on foot right now to remove the exemptions under the present sales tax and utilize this extra revenue in half ,) dozen directions. But this raid will be stopped. It lias to be stopped. The exemptions are going to be taken off, ill right, but when they are, that extra revenue has to go just where the pro- )onents of the .sales tax revenue pledged itwould go—to reduction of the property tax, 2 mills off the state property tax for every 2 per cent of he sales tax. And that's something no voter .should forget. H will be a vital issue in the 1936 campaign. will be a continuance of compulsory control "in one form OK another." "Even if the Bankhead bill is abrxir gated," he said, "necessity will force us to some means of controlling production." Crucial Battle In (Continued from page one) Cotton Bonus Goes (Continued from page one) gram will be eligible for the bounty payments made on this year's crop to bring it to an average of 12 cents." . Mr. Cobb explained this and other features of the new four-year cotton acreage resuction contracts to be offered to farmers in place of the one- year contracts formerly in effect, at a meeting with agricultural leaders of the Midbouth. Cotton farmers have been paid a rental payment of 3Vi cents and a parity payment of lYt cents per pound on cotton which would have been produced on acreage taken out of produc^ tion in 1935. The government has promised a "bounty" payment to contract signers to assure them an average of 12 cents a pound on the cotton produced tins year, agreeing to pay the difference between 12 cents and the price for which the cotton was s,old. With the vital decisions affecting the agricultural adjustment act and the Bankhead compulsory cotton control law expected from the Supreme Court soon, Mr. Cobb predicted that there lini's answer to the Anglo-French proposals. -The Tor majority in Commons appeared sufficient to uphold Baldwin.
