J., March 28. Bruno Richard Hauptmann's last desperate plea for clemency from the New Jersey court of pardons will be heard at 11 a. m. Monday, just 33 hours before the time set for his execution for murdering Charles Augustus Lindbergh, jr. In January the court refused, to 0. to commute Hauptmann's death sentence and there is littlo prospect that it would do so this time, barring new evidence. Clerk of the Court A- B. Ver- mann, announced, nowever, mat the court, composed of Gov. Har old G. Hoffman, the state chan cellor and six lay judges, would meet in formal session. on the condemned baby slayer's new plea.. The only other possibility oe Hauotmunn escaping death in the electric chair Tuesday night would be for Gov. Hoffman to grant another reprieve, or the remote contingency of a new trial being ordered. Reprieve Unlikely Hoffman's secretary announced that under present circumstances the governor was convinced a second reprieve would be illegal and it would not be granted. Ho has said he would not grant a re prieve unless Attorney General David T. Wilentz approves legality ot such action. With Wilentz and the governor bitterly t odd over-th.!"- tive's procedure in the. case, there was little prospect that he would do that. : ' In a statement at Perth Amboy, N. J., Wilentz said he would withhold my view about a re prieve until the governor asks me about it." The attorney general reiterated his belief "Hauptmann is as guilty today as the day he as convicted."

Russia and Japan have exchanged angry protests regarding two fatal clashes which occurred tHis week on the Manchukuoan frontier, it was announced today. Russia, insisting firmly that both clashes occurred within well m.iiked Soviet territory, reserved the right to demand compensation and demanded prompt punishment of the Japanese-Manchu-kuoan soldiers who participated. Tamekichi Ohta, Japanese ambassador, called on Boris S. Stom-oniakov, vice commissar of foreign affairs, to protest a clash which occurred Wednesday. At the same time, Constanfin Yurenev, Russian ambassador, protested to Kcki Hirota, Japanese premier. New Clash Reported Stomoniakov took occasion to protest in turn to a new clash, not previously made public, which oc curred at 1 a- m. yesterday and in which, he said, three Japanese-Manchukuoan cavalrymen were killed. A party of five cavalrymen penetrated from Manchukuo to a Russian island in the River Argun, which forms the northwestern boundary of Manchukuo, Stomoniakov said, and attacked three Russion frontier guards. The guards answered their fire and ' killed three Japanese-Man-chukuoans, Stomoniakov said, whilcflhe other two fled.

Mr. Murray made this prediction during a talk before the Albany Rotary club yesterday at the club's regular meeting in the Albany hotel dining room. The first system of' positive identification was devised by the French anthropologist, -Alphnnse Bertillon, Mr. Murray said. Ber-tillon conceived the idea of measuring the bones and body dimensions, which the French' police found a great aid in tracing criminals, and which was adopted by (Plcnne-Tum to.l'sKo Three) From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond Aim of Theaters Is Box Office Receipts, Not Morals; Committee Told" The theater runs by the same natural laws as the selling of groceries, dry goods or saws; that a picture must pay, is a fact presupposed, or else, very soon, the show must be closed.
