Psychologist Claims Governor Hoffman "Has Plan in Mind." DES MOINES, W--William M. Marston, New York psychologist who invented a lie detector, says he believes Bruno Richard Hauptmann may undergo a lie detector test. He asserted his belief in an interview here in which he said Gov. Harold Hoffman of New Jersey "has a plan in mind, the nature of which I cannot disclose, which will lead to the administering of the test." Marston said he believes that an examination with the apparatus may show that Hauptmann is not guilty of the actual Lindbergh baby murder. "There is no question of Hauptmann's guilt ,in connection with some phase of the case," h£ said, "but there is a grave question if he was connected with the actual kidnaping, or only took part in an extortion plot hatched as a result of and after the kidnaping. "That Hauptmann is only one of a gang, I am firmly convinced. . . . If Hauptmann was connected with the kidnaping I believe that with the lie detector we can get a confession from him. By the test we not only hope to find if Hauptmann is guilty, but also to seek for accomplices." Bees Are Suffocated. IOWA FALLS--Digging beehives from snowdrifts which covered them, Mark Croft found one hive in which the bees were dead.
