PAGE SIX THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, PftfflpS, TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 9, 1935. MARKET NEW YORK, Jan. 8. (XP)—Steel issues were the best Influence in today's stock market. A number of specialties were also in demand. Heaviness of the oil and some of the motors, however, tended to chill enthusiasm for the advance. A rather spirited rally in the last hour did not last long and the close was somewhat irregular.

Con Oil Describes Methods Cont Oil Del A. That's true. Cur Wri Reilly had the witness describe El P&L his arrival at the nursery. Gen El Q. What was the first object you Gen Mot attempted to photograph or take Gen Pub Svc fingerprints from. Reilly then had the expert give a description of his method of taking prints. Kelly told how he brushed black powder on the envelope and note and then brushed it off carefully. "Don't you know," snapped Reilly, "that by brushing the powder off, you are liable to brush the fingerprint off. Don't you know the proper way is to blow it off." The witness was slight y annoyed. "I know that blowing the moisture of your breath can destroy a print." He then told how he examined the kidnap window and sill and the entire nursery but found no fingerprints. Rcily sought to have the witness expiess his opinion on how long a fingerprint would remain on a surface. "I wouldn't say it would la'st five minutes." snapped Kelly, after Reilly pressed him to state how many days C: 1 hours a print would last. "Are you an expert in the fingerprint line? A. No, sir, I am not. Reilly then turned to the footprint. Q. How would you preserve footprints? A. I'd measure them and make a mold of them. Q. What would prevent you from taking measurements? A. If someone else did before I got there. Q. Did someone else measure the footprint at the Lindbergh home? Footprint Measured. A. I understand Detective de Gaetano did. Q. How about the ladder, where did you examine it? A. I looked it over and processed it right in the hall. Q. What was the condition of the ladder—dry or wet? A. It was dry. Q. It was a cold night. Was there no frost? A. No frost. Q. What kind of a ladder did Col. Lindbergh have in his garage? A. An extension ladder. Q. How high did it go? A. I didn't try to raise it. Q. Who directed you to the ladder? A. I asked Ollie Whateley, and he showed it to me. Q. The 'butler? A. Yes, the butler. Q. This footprint, was it more or less frozen in the mud next day? A. No, sir. De Gaetano Testifies. Reilly then excused the witness subject to recall to make finger print tests in court. State Police Detective Muncio de Gaetano was then sworn. Again the jury heard the accoun of what investigators found in the Lindbergh nursery and elsewhere the night of the crime. De Gaetano told of finding three splotches of dirt in the nursery leading from the window to the crib. He said the path from the window to the crib was unobstructed. • Going outside the detective came to the spot underneath the southeast nursery window. "The first thing I observed was a footprint. The next thing I observed .was an indentation. I can't say it was a footprint. It had ridges in it.

He said American Legion has had difficulty ne sflw tne man running out of in disposing of the first two Centennial half-dollars to be sold in Pampa. Last Saturday, they were scheduled to be auctioned off in front of the post office, but no bidders appeared, despite the fact that Legionnaires obtained promises from numerous well-to-do "patriots" to be en hand. Previously, the post had almost decided to dispose of the coins through private bids. Now, it has been definitely decided, it was announced yesterday to auction off the coins Thursday night at 9:15 o'clock from the stage cf the LaNora theater. A large crowd is assured, Legionnaires said. The coins are being sold all over Texas. Proceeds will be used to build a state museum. After the flrit two coins are sold others will Le sold for $1 each. They are at the bank now/ Knox place. "I was surprised to get a hail that way," he said. "And you stopped under a big bright arclight, didn't you?" inquired Reilly caustically. "Yes." The taxi driver said Hauptmann wore a brown double breasted overcoat, and a brown felt hat.

Then I saw the ladder about 65 or 70 feet from the house." He was asked to identify the ladder and did so. Reilly then took the witness for cross-examination. Reilly tried to gain an admission that it would have been more logical for a climber to place his ladder on the firm base of the sidewalk rather than in the slippery mud The detective remained unshaken. *•»Miss Katherine Howell has returned from a vacation trip during which she visited relatives at Memphis, Dogs Put in Pound ' As Catcher Roams The city dog catcher has started his 1935 activities and already has several dogs in the pound.

BETTER'N GROUNDHOGS UNIONTOWN, Pa. — Now Dave Holbvook adds grasshoppers to grade A weather indicators. "I saw a lot of 'hoppers on a mountain near Coolspring today," Holbrook reported. "That means a light winter. Grasshoppers are better than groundhogs for predicting purposes." Lieutenant 'Governor Witt. They were: Gordon M. Burns of Huntsville, Clay Gotten of Palestine, B, M. Davis of Brownwood. Joe Hill of Henderson, Wallas Hughston of McKinney, Weaver Moore of Houston, Jim Neal of Mirando City, Allan Shivers of Port Arthur, L. J. Sulak of Lagrange and Claud C. Westerfeld of Dallas; and Re-elected, T. J. Holbrook of Galveston, Ben G. Oneal of Wichita Falls, Frank H. Rawlings of Fort Worth, and H. Grady Woodruff of Decatur. Crowd Is Largest They stood in a semi-circle facing the rostrum to take the ancient oath. In it they, swore they had neither fought a duel nor assisted In one. Excitement increased to a feverish pitch in the house as members took seats and prepared to cast their ballots in the all-important speakership contest between Coke R. Stevenson of Junction and young R. W. Calvert of Hillsboro. House .galleries were packed and jammed. Observers estimated it was the largest audience ever gathered to witness the opening of a house session. Many of them were friends and relatives of members, although hundreds were drawn to the house by the spectacular race for speak- ership. Job hunters were everywhere in evidence, collaring members and making last minute pleas for employment. Space on the house floor was at a: premium and sergeants at arms worked diligently to push the crowds back from the space reserved for members. Wear Carnations The usual levity and good natured banter between members' was absent. A few of the veterans gathered in groups and quietly discussed the situation. Stevenson's supporters appeared wearing red carnations and flaunting white ribbons bearing the inscription : "This is a vote for Stevenson."Stevenson, smiling his slow smile, held a series of last minute conferences with his leaders. Supremely confident, Calvert sat at his old desk. His wife was seated beside him. They were surrounded by friends and well wishers. Both Stevenson and Calvert issued last minute statements expressing confidence. The invocation was delivered by the Rev. Virgil H. Fisher, Austin Methodist minister. He prayed for unselfish legislation to quiet a restive citizenry and for a speedy and happy conclusion of legislative problems. Representative Augustine Celaya of Brownsville was the only member absent, reducing the qualified voting strength to 148. The normal membership of the house is 150 but Gordon Burns of Huntsville, elected a member of the 44th house, later was elected to the senate. Representative Walter E. Jones of Jourdantxm made the first nominating speech in favor of Stephenson. After reemphasizlng the importance of the office, Jones said the election should be without rancor and pleaded for a cooperative effort in solving the state problems. Stevenson Nominated "There should be cooperation between the legislative, executive and judicial branches,' 1 Jones said. "We affirm this. Who could say more? Who would say less?" Governor-elect James V. Allred supported Calvert for speaker, a situation that caused dissatisfaction among certain of Stevenson's supporters. Jones' nomination of Stevenson was loudly applauded. Representative Bob Alexander of Childress made the first nominating speech for Calvert. Two years ago he was one of Stevenson's staunchest supporters. FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 8. (/P)—Bruno Richard Hauptmann was identified In court today as a man seen at Hopewell.'N. J., on the night of- March 1, 1932, when T»aby Charles Agustus Lindbergh, Jr., was stolen from his crib and slain; The state failed in its second attempt to get the ladder down which it contends the baby was carried to its death into evidence, and the defense pursued a vigorous attack upon the efficiency of the New Jersey police after two state troopers testified they could find no fingerprints in the Lindbergh nursery, on the ladder, or on the ransom no'e which Lindbergh found on the nursery window sill. The defense successfully blocked the ladder from evidence on the ground that it had not been properly Identified. Amandus Hockmuth, a nervous old man with a Van Dyke beard, said he saw Hauptman in an automobile in which he carried a ladder. The old man pointed to the Bronx carpenter with a shaky finger. "There he is I" 'Attorney General David T. Wil- entz requested the greybearded man to step down and place his 'hand upon Hauptmann's shoulder. Edward J. Reilly, defense counsel objected, and before the point could be argued, Hockmutli declared: • "He's the man between the state trooper and the man in a white shirt." Hauptmann Shakes Head Nevertheless he was allowed to step down and make more positive identification. He approached the accused carpenter gingerly, placed his hand on his shoulder and quickly withdrew it. Hauptmann shook his head in short negative rolls. "I saw the car coming, and the man in it looked out of the window at me as if he had seen a ghost," Hockmuth said. "I object," Reilly sang out. "I object to ghost stories." The old man, trembling violently and speaking in an almost inaudible tone, said the car swung into the Lindbergh lane and stopped briefly. Q. Do you remember the color of the car? A. Yes, a dirty green. ' Reilly began cross examination. 1 Reilly asked the witness to tell if he had stood in the court room doorway with a state trooper during yesterday's session. • "Djd that state trooper point out Bruno Richard Hauptmann to you as he sat in his seat," bellowed Reilly. "No," shot back the shaky voice with spirit. Wilentz bounded to his feet In strenuous objection. "I object to the defense badgering this witness." The bearded little man, who gave his age as 87, shook. His hand clasped and unclasped continually. His head shook nervously. Hockmuth was a surprise to the whole court array. His name was not distinctly called and few knew who he was. He came to the stand, a small, gray man dressed in a gray suit. He was almost palsied in his Q. Was It a cold day? A. It was March. Q. How fast was the car going when you first saw the man? A. About forty miles an hour. Memory Is Issue "He speeded around the turn" the old man said. "Then he slid Into the ditch, stopped, and started again." . "How many cars did you say you saw go into the ditch before this one?" "Seven." • Q. And prior to this one, on what date did one go into the ditch? A. I can't remember. "How was the man dressed," Reilly asked, referring to the man in the dirty green car. "I think he had a dark shirt on. All I saw of him was the red face and the glaring eyes," the feeble voice replied. Reilly questioned the old man on his visit to the jail a month ago when he viewed Hauptman. He sought to bring out the old man's memory was faulty. The defense had Hockmuth say several times he had "never" told anyone of seeing Hauptmann. Employed At Hospital When Wilentz sought to bring out that the trembling old man had discussed the case with state of- ficals, Reilly objected strenuously but Justice Trenchard overruled him and said the state had the right to clarify the point. Reilly demanded to know whether Hockmuth had ever been in an institution. "I was employed in the Hudson River State hospital at Poughkeep- sle, N. Y,," he said. Under further" questioning he said he had been back there for a visit but "never stayed there." He said he first learned about Hauptmann in the newspapers. "I read about him and saw his picture there," he said. Reilly excused the old man and Wilentz waived redirect. A 'five-minute recess was taken. Captain John J. Lamb of the state police was the first witness sworn after the recess. Old Man Unshaken No questions could shake the old man's positiveness, and he was" excused from the stand after Reilly got him to say he had not discussed his identification with anyone. of Hauptmann Hochmuth turned out to be the mysterious old man who paced the jail in front of Hauptmann's cell some weeks ago. Prior to his startling testimony, the defense had launched a yigor- ous attack upon the efficiency of New Jersey police after two officers, testified they could find no fingerprints in the nursery from which the Lindbergh baby was stolen, nor on the ladder down which the state contends the baby was carried to his death, nor on the ransom note that was left on the window sill. The officers questioned were Frank A. Kelly, police fingerprint expert, and Nuncio de Gaetano. Arthur J. Koehler, wood experl of the U. S. forestry department took the stand. He said he was stationed at Madison, Wisconsin. Koehler said he had examined the ladder and had turned it back to Capt. Iamb. He was excused after a minute or so by the prosecution and the defense began cross-examination. • Wilentz indicated that his testimony at this time would concern only possession of the ladder anc 'that his expert testimony would come later. Defense Attorney Frederick A Pope conducted the cross-examina- movements. Saw Face Clearly His eyes peered solemnly from behind heavy gold-rimmed spectacles at Hauptmann, but his face was a blank. Wilentz opened his examination tion. Nails Are Issue by asking him what he saw on the afternoon of March 1, 1932. His voice came 'slowly through his beard. He saw an automobile round a turn near his home, he said, and he saw a man's face turned "like this." He turned his head toward the jury to illustrate. "He looked as if he had seen a ghost," he.said. Reilly objected to the old man's comment, but Wilentz urged him on, asked him if he could remember the man he had seen. The aged witness trembled, said "yes" and immediately raised his shaking arrfl to point to Hauptmann. "That man there next to the trooper," he declared. An eerie accident heightened the drama of the old man's declaration —five ceiling lights, suspended on long chains, were suddenly extinguished. The auto lane leading into the Lindbergh estate was described by Hockmuth as "Lindy's Road." He saw the auto, in which he alleged he saw Hauptmann, he said, because he thought it might be Lindbergh passing.. Justice Trenchard overruled several objections of the attorney general.

Roberts THE HAT MAN ts , , , Just Hfcts — Factory Finished in DeLiixe Dry Cleaners Calvert Praised Alexander refrerred to Calvert as a youth who had fought his way through adversity to a position of honor in state affairs. He reviewed Calvert's early life in the state orphanage at Corsicana worked in the fields. when Later he he worked his way through the University of Texas law school by operating an elevator in the state capitol. "In this man we have an outstanding example of an ideal democracy," Alexander said. ''He is thoroughly self-made and his work is marked with integrity and hard driving intelligence." Alexander made no reference to Allred's participation In the campaign. , State Objection Denied " I see no badgering here," the justice remarked. "This is a point of inquiry." The 87-year-old surprise witness anwsered a number of questions aout when he moved to Hopewell before Reilly snapped: Q. What was the date you say you saw this man? A. March 1, 1932. Q. What day of the week? A. Tuesday. I think it was Teus- day. Q. What time did you see that dirty green car? A. About noon. It was a clear .day-. Reilly then had the old man describe that he had seen Hauptmann from his vantage point on 'the 11 kjtchen porch, which fronted on the Lindbergh estate, entrande line which Hockmuth referred to' as "Lindy's road." He said he heard the dirty green car eoniing he looked at yie io^d Blinking it might be Lindbergh,. Koehler said that he had taken the iadder apart, removing tin nails and the rungs and later su pervised its reassembly, using thi same nails. Pope! brought out that the nail had passed from his possession and he corrected his testimony on thi point. When Koehler's cross-examlna tion was over, Wilentz offered th ladder in evidence. Pope immed lately objected. It was the state's second effor to place this highly important ob ject in evidence. The court ruled, however, tha the ladder could be again offere into evidence after more edentifi cation testimony about it had bee presented. "I object," Pope began, "to this as evidence for the same reasons as I expressed yesterday and for several additional reasons." Yesterday the defense objection was sustained on the ground that the custody and possession of the ladder had not been fully trace'd. Judge in Doubt "It also appears," Pope continued, "that a saw cut has been made in one of the rungs. Justice Trenchard said: "I don't seem to 'have much doubt in my own mind that certain parts of the ladder are admissable as evidence. "The framework, for instance." "Then too there is this question of nails. I don't see how they figure in this case, but the counsel seems to." The court concluded, however, to defer "for the moment" the ladder's admission as evidence. Pope cited the fact that Koehler did not know whether the nails in the reassembled ladder were the original. He advanced another point. "There is absolutely no connection either by circumstantial or direct evidence of that ladder with the accused." He argued that the ladder should ot be admitted until it was llnk- d with the defendant. "We will connect this ladder with Mr. Hauptmann," Wilentz said n urging this exhibit be admitted. "I propose the counsel for the defense this. This is the ladder ound on the scene of the crime. We've traced it through its cus- ody since then and we'll run it 'Ight Into Hauptmann." Pope again objected at length, tating the defense wanted to know everything done with the ladder be- ore they would accept the ex- libit. Defers Ruling Justice Trenchard ruled that in view of the changes made in the ixhibit the attorney general should defer his motion "until later when ihere has .been opportunity to inquire more minutely" into these circumstances. He then made' that ruling. Corporal Kelly was recalled for a single question on the ladder and then dismissed. Lieut. John Sweeney was the next witness. Wilentz began his examination on aspects of the finding of the ladder. Sweeney said that he had extended two of the three sections of the ladder against the Lindbergh home. "It reached thirty inches below the window," he said. He indicated the nursery window through which the state alleges the baby was abducted. Sweeney said explanation of the marks on the side of the house by means of a magnifying glass showed particles of wood clinging to the grey stone. To Measure Ladder Sweeney explained he made the observations from another ladder, and later said he was able to step Into the nursery from the rung of that ladder corresponding to the top of the kidnap ladder, Wilentz turned him over to the defense. Reilly indicated that he wished Sweeney to measure the ladder, and over Wilenta' objection, the court indicated it would permit Sweeney to measure it this afternoon. Reilly After lengthy questioning Wilentz ecured Sweeney's opinion that wo section ladder would break al he dowel or joint pin in the event f too great a weight. Sweeney pointed out that the adder in court was broken at pre- Isely the joint where the dowel pin ttached. ^eilly on cross examination demanded: You didn't see this ladder rack?" A. No. Q. You didn't go up it to the indbergh nursery window? A. No. Q. You never carried a bundle own it from that window? A. No. "That's all," Reilly finished. Wilentz stopped the witness as he ose from the stand. You didn't take the child ou he Lindbergh window either, did ou?" Sweeney's "no" was drowned ou s the court resounded with laugher. He was excused. made an off-record remark during the lull: "Between the Sweeneys and the Reillys there is never any difficulty." Reilly asked Sweeney: "Ever been a fireman?" "Yes, sir," Sweeney replied. There followed then a discussion in light conversational•-tones on th" art of scaling ladders; Q. You don't crouch as you run up a ladder? A. I don:t know. I don't thin! so. I got to the top and"swun( myself in. Q. But you were able to do tha because' of your training as a fire man? A. Yes, I suppose so. Court recessed for lunch at 12:2 p. m. The afternoon session of court got under way at 1:49 p. m., E. S. T with Lieutenant Sweeney, the New ark detective on the stand for th continuation of his cross-exam ination at the pudgy hands of Chie Defense Counsel Reilly. Wilentz then introduced a serie of questions designed to establisJ the possibility that a man coul come down the kidnap ladder carry ing a "package" in his arms. He asked Sweeney if he used bot his hands in climbing out of th nursery in the ladder experiment. Sweeney said "yes." Q. Could you have come out wit a package in your arms? A. I could.

Shaken, Mrs. Hauptmann watched from a chair two yards away. Her face wore a weary smile, but her composure had the greatest shock of the trial. In the jury box five men and women leaned forward, one almost crouching at the rail. In the gloom, the oppressive heat in the courtroom seemed to increase. The lights had gone out as Hockmuth pointed at the accused man.
