(Associated Press Photos) PLANS U.S. APPEAL FOR HAUPTMANN fisher to Carry Case to Federal Court if State Appeal Is Denied HOLLYWOOD. Calif, Aug. 29. W) C. Lloyd Fisher, attorney for Bruno Richard Hauptmann, may go into Federal Court in New Jersey in an effort to save the alleged Lind bergh baby kidnaper from execution. Fisher, here in connection with the case, said he will carry Haupt- mann's legal fight into the Federal Court if an appeal now before the state courts in New Jersey is denied. The pending appeal is based on assignments of error in the conduct of the carpenter's trial last year. Plans for the new appeal are based on purported new evidence Fisher claims to have unearthed since he took charge of Haupt-mann's defense, replacing the trial attorney, Edward J. Rellly. Fisher would not disclose the na ture of the "new evidence," but in dicated it would include a contention that the body of the baby found near the Lindbergh estate near Hopewell was not that of the flier's child. Fisher has been conferring here with Mrs. Emma Gloeckner, sister of Hauptmann, and her attorney, Vincent Marco. SMALL SISTERS ADMIT KIDNAPING TALE HOAX LOUISVILLE, Ky, Aug. 29.

LET KIDNEYS FLUSH OUT 3 LBS. A DAY Clean Out IS Mile of Kidney Tubes Nature put over 15 miles of tiny tubes and filters in your kidneys to strain the waste matter out of the blood. Kidneys should pass 3 pints a day and so get rid of more than 3 pounds of waste matter. When the passing of water Is scanty, with smarting and burning, the 15 miles of kidney tubes may need flushing out. This danger signal may be the beginning of nagging backache, leg pains, loss of pep and energy, getting up nights, swelling, puffiness under the eyes and dizziness. If kidneys don't empty 3 pints a day and so get rid of more than 3 pounds of waste matter, your body may take up some of these poisons causing serious trouble. Don't wait! Ask your druggist for Doan's Pills, which have been used successfully by millions of people for over 40 years. They grive happy relief and help the kidneys to flush out 3 pounds a day.
