DAILY NEWS, FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1923 Bkiyn. Sec. 10 HOFFMAN TO FACE SHELL PHOTO TEST Prosecutor , Outlines For Trial in Plans Kings. f Wh-jn Harry L. Hoffman, former motion picture operator, conies to his third trial in the murder of Mrs. Maude Bauer, pictures of bullet shells will be used by the prose cution in its fight to reconvict the man who already has served four and one-half years for the crime. D i s t r ict At-ney Albert C. Fach of Rich mond will at- Harry L. Hoffman tempt to snow by comparing 'pictures ' of bullet shells found by Mrs. Bauer's body and pictures taken of test shells fired from a pistol owned by Hoffman that Hoffman's gun fired the fatal shots. It will be argued that bullet shells, like the tips of fingers, bear unmistakable marks of Jdentmca- tion. Firing pins, which leave their imprint on the backs of sneus, are never alike, it is claimed. Hoffman now sits in Raymond st. jail, awaiting trial in Brooklyn Supreme court next October. Following the slaying of Mrs. Bauer in Staten Island March 25, 1924, Hoffman was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to serve from twenty years to life. - An appeal won him a new trial. However, his counsel, Leonard Snit-kin, pleading his client could not obtain a fair trial in Staten Island, succeeded in having: the case transferred to Kings county.

Losers may be weepers, but finders aren't necessarily keepers. :. ": ... Not at least, in the case of Alfred Dilger of 268 92d st, who for the second time in a year has returned found money.
