To Show That Hauptmann Was NCftf tlndbergh Estate About March .1, 1032 BY JAMES YTtAWftENCE f Associated Press Staff Writer) iPlemlneton. N. .T,, Dec. 27.—</P)— The stale of New Jersey, an official source said today, has decided to Ignore one of the cards in Its hand flgainst Bruno Richard Hauptmann —Its'new "alibi" mw. By invoking the law, passed by the 1934 legislature, the state could force Hauptmann's defense to give notice of any Intention to claim that Hauptmati was not at the scene of the Lindbergh kidnaping at the time of the crime. Explains Reason The official source said the state has determined not to invoke the law before the trial starting next Wednesday because its constitutionality never has been tested. The state's attorneys therefore fear It might be made grounds for an ap- _peal. The decision left the way open for "surprise witnesses," The Jaw was debated keenly by the legislature, its sponsors arguing that it would prevent lawyers from introducing such witnesses at the eleventh hour. Under the law at the state's demand, the defense in a criminal case must give notice of its Intention to prove that the defendant was elsewhere than the scene of the crime five days before evidence Is presented. Witnesses to the Rllbl roust be listed. The state however, Is required to name, two days later, the witnesses with Which it plans to refute the alibi. While the;-state-', might gain strategically by demanding such a declaration from the defense, the official pointed out, it too would be forced to "show Its hand" by naming its rebuttal witnesses. To Show That He Was In Vlolnapc • Hie state is known to be planning an aggressive attempt to show, that Hauptmann was near the Hope well home of Ool. Charles A. Lindbergh March 1 1932, when Lindbergh's infant son was abducted. A grey-bearded old man appeared last week at the Hunterdon county Jail and paced outside Hauptmann's cell, haultlng now and then to peer , intently at the prisoner. A state official later said the mysterious visitor was one "of at least five" residents of the Spurl^nd mountain region to testify ihat HauptihariH was near Hopewell before the crime. ,.Hauptmann's probable alibi.was indicated in the New York hearing which preceded his extradition but until the trial, Jan. 2, its details will remain secret. » denial of guilt, expressed impatience.

Harry Moore directed County Prosecutor Anthony M. Hauck to take steps toward having the money refunded. The "assessments" were levied by a deputy of Sheriff John H. CtirtlAs, who called in reporters one by one and charged fees of $5 and $10 for press scats to "pay the cost of Installing seats, carpentry and other expenses" incident to accommodating tho press during the trial. Governor Dislikes Sheriff's Action Moore, discussing the incident by telephone with llauck, pointed out the cost of alterations in the court room prior to the trial, and of repair work after It is over would properly be included In the trial expenses, which the state will defray entirely. The governor told Hauck to confer with Curtis as soon OR possible and "suggest" that "the money already paid by newspapermen be refunded." BY PAT McGRADT (Associated Press Stall Writer) Flemlngton, N. J., Dec. 27.— (fP)— Twenty-one women must report for the jury that will pass judgment on the results of nearly three years' efforts to solve the Lindbergh kidnap case. These 21—14 of them housewives- will appear with 28 men next Wednesday at the start of the trial of Bruno Hauptmann on a charge of slaying the abducted Lindbergh infant. From them, a dozen jurors will be chosen. Task for the Dozen It will be for the dozen to decide whether, as the state charges, It was Hauptmann who can-led the baby from his crib, the blustery night of March 1. 1932, to his death. The baby was never seen alive by any member of the Lindbergh household after he was placed in his crib about 8:30 the night of the kidnap- ing by Betty Gow, the child's nurse who returned from Scotland Christmas day (o testify for the state at Hauptmann's trial.

Sometime next week the county advisers and corn-hog association officers of Illinois arc expected to be called to a district meeting at which ,lme details of tho 1935 program will X! explained to them. In Jo Davless county there will bo county ecluca- -lonal group meetings and sign-up sessions for the benefit of farmers who desire to co-operate in the coning AAA project. It is understood that all compliance papers In connection with the 1934 corn-hog control program In Jo Davless county have been completed and mailed to Washington, D. C., some time ago. Hence, it is believed ;hat Jo Davless signers of tho 1934 contracts may expect their second mymcnts when other neighboring lounty signers receive theirs, Bank May Get Payment Soon That several hundred of deposlt- >rs of the closed Elizabeth Exchange mnk may receive a substantial payment on their claims before New Year's appeared possible today although the exact time for tho pay- nent cannot be definitely stated by -hose In charge, However, It Is mown that a 15 per cent payment drhbuntlng to $67,312 hns been approved by the court and will be made within a short time. The checks have been written and it is said that everything is In readiness tor their mailing as soon as they have had the approval of tho state officials. The local bank closed Juno 11, 1932, with deposits of general claims amounting to about $400,000. Since that time three dividends have been paid amounting to 19 per cent, the two larger payments to creditors coming from tho assets of tho bank and tine other coming from a fund created by the assessment against the stockholders. Tho current payment will bring the total payments to 34 per cent or slightly more than one-third of tho liability.

BUT TtittEE MAJOR ONES ARE CONSIDERED TO BE RELIEF, BONUS AND HEAOLINERS IfpOSSIBLY SENSATIONAL SESSION But inflation and Insurance and Similar Measure May Tress Them Closely HV D, HAROLD OLIVER (Associated Press Staff Writer) Washington, Dec, 27— W)— The session of congress opening next Thursday will, in the opinion of some Democratic leaders, set three major debates— relief, the cash bonus and NRA. They see other headline disputes In the making, too, notably Inflation, methods of handling unemployment insurance and other social security measures, and possibly the world court, but they said today the first three are uppermost In their minds now. President "Working On Message While these leaders, who do not wish Just yet to be quoted by name, sought to read the future and prepare for It, President Roosevelt continued work on the message he will deliver Jan, 4. Some persons close to the white house described It as largely a "middle ground" document. Cabinet officers and other high officials were to confer with him today or tomorrow, How many issues the message will deal with Is not known, but most observers believe relief and the future of NRA will be included. Whether tho president would have some suggestion to make on the soldier's bonus — perhaps In a latter message— was a subject causing speculation. As for relief, the size of the spending and tho question of dole vs -made-work arc considered lead- Ing problems. In recent months, administration leaders have shown signs of favoring a swing to work relief. Public Works Talk Ranges 'From 3 To 6 Billions Unofficial talk of possible public works appropriations haa ranged as high as $6,000,000,000, but some men prominent in congress say privately they look for a request for not more than $3,000,000,000 to $4,000,000,000— perhaps much less. This, they say, would be a move based on an expectation of better business which would lighten the government's relief load. Tho question who would win if it camo to a last ditch fight on the bonus still arouses conflicting expressions of opinion. Wlille advocates of immediate payment of the $2,200,000,000 claim enough, support to pass it even over a presidential veto, opponents are saying it can be stopped in the senate. Whether a compromise, such as payments to distressed ex-soldiers, may be agreed upon on!y the future can determine.

THAT FARMERS LEAD WAY TO BETTER TIMES IS EVIDENCED BY INCREASED_FARM BUYING Merchants Attribute "Best Christmas Since 1029" To Farmers' Buying Chicago, Dec. 27.—(LP)—Farmers brought the "best Christmas since 1Q20" to merchants In 75 Illinois cities according to a report today by the Illinois chamber of commerce. Selection of better grades of merchandise gave evidence of a real Improvement in the buying power of farmers, the report said. Many* cities reported an increase of 60 per cent in business over last year. A majority of merchants reported an average increase of 26 per cent. Even more important than the buying, said the report, was the spirit with which farmer shoppers entered the holidays. "It was satisfactory In every instance," said T. J. Meek, director of the mercantile division of the chamber. "Chlcagoans who thrilled at the large size of the crowds here can have another thrill by knowing that those crowds were matched in everything but size in downstate elites," he added. "The buying power and cheerful spending spirit can only indicate confidence that better times are already here."

FIRE RAOtNG FIFTY YEAttS ACROSS COAL AREA NEAR NEW STRAITSVILIE, 0. By NEA Service New Straltsvllle, O., Dec. 27.— Uncle Sam is getting some strange Jobs wished on him these days, but this is the first time he has been asked to become a fireman in a big wholesale way. New Straitsville's fire, however, is so big, and has been unsuccessfully fought for so many years that the plea for federal aid is actively being considered. Over an area of some six square miles near here, the earth smokes and shrivels ns great fissures open up to let out the gases and vapors of an underground conflagration that has been raging for 50 years. Rich coal seams, ignited during a bloody mine strike in 1884, have burned sullenly ever since, and defied every effort to extinguish the blaze. And the fire Is spreading today into new territory, threatening to consume not only the rest of the valuable nine and ten-foot strata here, but also to attack the famous Hocking Valley fields, which lie directly in its path. In 50 years of steady burning, this fire is estimated to have destroyed $50,000,000 worth of excellent coal, with $60,000,000 more In its path in the Hocking fields. Final Fight Planned Government mining engineers are just finishing a survey of the region hereabouts with a view to getting federal PWA funds to put some 500 men at work after the first of the year In a final effort to stop the destruction. It will be a Herculean job, for many efforts of private interests have failed, at great expense. The famous mine fires originated, according to local legend, with a particularly vicious and bloody coal strike in 1884. Blood ran freely in Perry county in clashes of strikers, non-strikers and state militia. One dark night, after the conflict had dragged on for six months, a body of striking miners seized sev* era] loaded coal cars on a tipple, poured ban-els of oil over the coal, touched a match to them, and ran the blazing cars down into a mine a mile below the surface. Whole Mine Ablaze In less than 24 hours the whole mine was ablaze, and for 50 years every effort to smother the blaze, with its million dollars' worth of damage each year, has failed. Once the course of a creek was diverted to an opening in a mine passageway; and the water poured down into the inferno, with no results. Cement walls have been sunk Into the earth, known crevices have been sealed, and steam forced down FREE—TO WED—AFTER 22 YEARS As he left the Minnesota penitentiary at Stillwater after 22 years' Imprisonment for a slaying, Michelangelo Gentllcore confessed to Harry Walsh (left), his attorney, that It felt "funny" to be free again. Paroled by the state pardon board, Gentllcore left;for New York to be deported to Italy, where he hopes to wed a sweetheart who has waited for him those many years. In prison Gentllcore was a cobbler. (Associated Press Photo) i --••'.. into the labyrinth of chasms. This, too, failed. Crevices and air channels, open- Ing up on the hills, keep fanning tVie blaze to new furies. Valuable forests of the vicinity have been killed or stunted by the noxious gases, heat and fumes that rise from the inferno. School Is Periled The entire neighborhood is studded with cave-Ins, great holes, and fissures which seem to have no bottom. People have been known to be overcome by the fumes. Just back of the new $80,000 high school building a dozen homes were recently abandoned when their foundations suddenly buckled. The foundations of the school itself sank when the fire reached a coal vein beneath them, and the glowing coal had to be lifted out by expert miners to prevent collapse. Directly in front of another school, the roadway sank five feet, and on a big hill nearby, a cavernous crack extends for a mile. Looking down into it for 50 feet nothing can be seen but a seething mass of coals. Finds Cistern on Fire One man on the edge of town went out in the morning to draw water from his cistern. He found it full of fire. The marching con*, flagration had eaten Into It during the night and dried up all the water. The fire also ate :'away the strata under the foundations of his home, which had to be torn down. Any extensive mining in this rich coal area is now impossible, for no sooner is a shaft sunk than the fires may eat Into it at any moment. It isn't worth the chance of losing the investment. Property values in this town of 3,500 have dropped almost to zero, for the fires have reached with in 1,000 feet of the main street, and the ever present veil of smoke and- noxious gases makes living conditions unhealthful. If Uncle Sam undertakes this world's biggest job as a fireman, It will bring new hope to long-suffering residents of a doomed community, and save valuable natural resources. So they wait with anxiety the report of federal engineers studying the strange man-made inferno.
