It hns been turned up In 716 places by invc-tiRators who have traveled 7.00(1 miles and interviewed tit least 5.000 persons. The first bill show up was received at the East River Savings Bank Branch at Amsterdam Avenue and 9Gth Street April 4, 1932 --two days after the ransom was paid. The bulk of the amount recovered Is the S17.750 found in nruno H a u p t m a n n ' s garage, and the $'-'.980 turned in to the Federal Hank by a mysterious "J. J. Faulkner." Bills were pasted at intervals in t.he Bronx, M a n h a t t a n and Brooklyn, and then began to appear last Fall in Northern Ne-.v York State and Maine. It has been established that H a u p t m a n n went on a hunting trip to Maine last October. The high for recklessness was achieved September 9. when six of the bills were passed in Yorksville restaurants and cabarets. It was September 15 when Hauptmann handed the bill to a Lexington Avenue gasoline station attendant that led to his being traced--through hts automobile license number--and arrested. Aboard U. S. C.

Oct. 1. The adjournment was granted by Magistrate Bernard Mogilesfcy at the request of Assistant District Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy. Hauptmann was led in'o the court a sheriff's van, an armored truck with bullet-proof glass. ! Sheriff John Hanley said the prisoner had eaten a good breakfast: and had a good night's rest. From Germany came a refutation of Hauptmann's story that the money found in the side wall of his garage had been entrusted to him by a friend. Isadore Fisch. Paul Fisch, a brother of the friend named, said Isadore returned to Leipzig, Germany, on money oor- rowed from Hauptmann and died with scores of bills unpaid. The possibility that Fisch was slain to silence him, voiced in some quarters was dispelled by the assertion of Paul Fisch that his brother came home a sick man, and died March 29, 1934, of tuberculosis. A secretary to District Attorney Foley said: "As far as the FiseJi angle is concerned, Foley regards it as a case of 'Dead men tell no tales.' He is convinced that Fisch had n o . 2500 Locked Out?

A detail of 75 policemen drove the strikers from the vicinity of the school after they had refused an invitation of Superintendent John P. Scully to resume classes. The superintendent and Principal John L. Miller had refused to meet a committee of students to discuss their differences. The striking students were herded into the business district and after being refused permission to hold a mass meeting on Legion parkway dispersed with the announcement they would hold such a meeting at 8 p. m. Both Scully and Miller, whose home was the target of a tomato bombardment Friday night, were greeted wMth cheers and boos as they arrived at ths school this morning. Miller -was accompanied into the school by a squad of police uncJer the direction of Capt. Oscar Johnson. A few stones rattled off the side of the school building, but otherwise there wns no disorder. School officials announced that students under 16 years of age who were on strike would be reported to . the truant officer who, they said. I would be advised to pick them up and bring them to classes. They said they had no jurisdiction over students who were more than 16 and that they were accountable only to their parents. The school board held a special meeting Sunday at which the situation was discussed but no action was taken. The superintendent told the board he realized there might be some inequalities, but that the students had not given school officials an opportunity to adjust matters. He said he regretted the difficulties that had arisen but If the students would bear with him, he said, he was sure that be taken back."
