PAGE SIX TUB PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texa* FRIDAY EVENING* JANUARY 11, 1985. HUEY COMPOSES CAMPAIGN SONG; RAPS HIS 'Every Man a King,' By, 'Kingfish' Long NEV7 YORK, Jan. 11 (fl 1 )—Huey Lorife, who has turned song writer, is in town looking for a. publisher. Louisiana's outspoken senator and "dictator" breezed into New York yesterday looking for Lou Irwln, "who knows lots of publishers." Long didn't seem to be worried- about the threatened march of Louisiana's "square dealers" on the state capital unless the senator's dictatorship is ended by the legislature. "They ain't going to march anywhere." he shouted. "If they had a horse and buggy they might ride. They're too lazy to walk. "That gang down there changes its name every week. Now they arc calling it the square deal. "They're a lot of defeated candidates who have been beaten so many times I quit counting. They ain't going to do nothing down there. I'm mighty well pleased with conditions In Louisiana. I wish tre rest of the country was in as good shape. If it was we could go ahead." Concerning reports that Governor O. K. Allen would resign because of 111 health, Huey said: "Oscar ain't going to quit. He ain't sick, he's gone hunting. I say he ain't going to resign nothing until he gets a better job and there ain't any open down there right now." The senator said his song Is called "Every Man ff King" and that it is one of a half dozen he is going to use In his "share-the-wealth" campaign. The words were written by Long himself and the music was composed one morning about 5 o'clock with Castra Caraza, "my bandmaster at Louisiana state university." "Castro was sitting at a piano and I was at a table humming," he said, "he'd play a bar and then I'd hum a line and that's the way it got put together." While he is here he is going to look into some legal matters connected with a suit against a utility company he is handling in Louisiana. ' The Kingfish said his "share-the- wealth" movement is "growing by leaps and bounds." "We had between 5,000 and 10,000 clubs when I last counted them. I kept track of them until we got up to 1,000,000 members and then I quit counting. But we'll have a club In every nook and corner of the United States when people come to . understand what the plan stands for." LEGISLATURE (Continued from page 1.) $5,000 or jail sentence of six months maximum for fraudulent returns. Colonel Owsley asserted Europe was oreparing for another war while suff'-rJng from effects of the last. He said the Balkan nations were continually agitated over prospec- tii e changes in the balance of power and in proposed, boundary revisions. King Carol is a scholarly, educated gentleman faced with tremendous problems of welding several races into a compact nation, Owsley said. Education in being stressed to bring youth to a higher appreciation of the benefits of cohesive action. "In Rumania," Colonel Owsley said, "there is no peace of mind, freedom of the press or freedom of action. The country has been under martial law most of the time I have been there. All rulers of the Balkan nations are uneasy and the munitions budget is one of the greatest items of governmental expense." FAULKNER (Continued irom oage 1.) Haskell Couple Burn to Death KASKELL, Jan. 11. W'l—Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Patterson burned to death last night in -their car when it plunged into a deep ditch and caught fire a few miles south of Haskell. The elderly farmer's body was almost consumed by the flames while that of his wife was burned badly. Patterson was moving a trailer loaded with household goods for his son from a farm near Haskell to another south of Rule when the accident occurred. The son was driving a fe\y miles behind him. • : — ^f Tom-Tom Blanton Talks of Ducks WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (AP) — For no apparent reason, Representative Blanton of Texas got to talking about ducks in the house. Those good old days for hunters when the wild fowl were numerout along the Potomac and Chesapeake Bay near Washington were recall- Vpd by the speaker with a nostalgic note in his voice. "And down in the district of my colleague, Mr. Thonrason (D-Tex) they were thick on the lakes and pondSj' 1 he droned. "You mean lame ducks," some unidentified member interrupted and the chamber echoed witl laughter. 'Ihe gentleman from Texas sat down ,wJth a sad shake of his head. 1— m» • EXHIBIT IS HUNG CANYON, Jan. U.-,The first atr exhibit of 1935 is how hanging in the Mary E. Hudspeth, gallery of the panliaiidte Plains Historical Society here. Jfc is » coUpctlon of 19 etchings and 15 pencil drawings by Jtomale Bwajfti p? OftMas, The artist formerly lived in on the day4he gold embargo went into effect. All of the ransom money was in gold notes. He insisted there was ho way to trace the "J. J. Faulkner," whose name was on the slip that accompanied the exchange. "As you were Investigating J. J. Faulkner." asked defense counsel C. Llcyd Fisher, "is It true that a J. J. Faulkner threw himself from the top of the Chrysler tower and committed suicide?" "I don't know," he replied. Pressed later he said he had heard of a man named Faulkner committing suicide but that lie did lot know of the man had the ini- ,ials "J. J." "You carefully investigated J. J. did you not?" "Yrs. sir." "Did you find a J. .7. Faulkner ilivr?" "Yes, .sir, srvrral of them," he an- s\vrrccl. Wil.'-on testified he had no notice of uny Lindbergh ransom currency ppearing after the arrest of Bruno Richard Hauptmann. Wilson was an Important technical witness for the state which seeks o send Hauptmann to tho electric halr for the kidnaping and murder of Baby Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. "So far as you know." Attorney General David T. Wilentz asked n. "since the indictment of Bruno Richard Hauptmann for rriurder in.s there been one ransom bill urned up?" "No, sir." he replied. Wilson testified that he, ns agent n charge of the intelligence depart- nent of the United States depart- ncnt of internal revenue, directed the preparation of the ransom noney, which Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Jondon charged he paid to Hauptmann in a Bronx cemetery. Elaborate Flans Laid He described graphically the elaborate plans laid for subsequent capture of the kidnaper by carefully loting the serial numbers of each piece of currency—numbers which vere later printed on 250,000 circu- ars and sent to banks throughout the United States and in many 'orsign countries. The money, $70,000, was counted out and noted at the J. P. Morgan company. Only $50,000 was paid by ;ondon to the man he then knew only as "John." The witness also identified the $14,GOO found in Hauptmann's arage in the Bronx as part of the noney, and he relatsd the full story of Hauptmann's arrest and the subsequent investigation. For the fifth time in the trial the prisoner heard his name pronounced with emphasis by a witness. "Bruno Richard Hauptmann!" The pronouncement was Wilson's answer to the question of "who is ;he man you are talking about?" Tart cross-examination on possible appearance of any ransom bills since Haup' mann's incarceration climaxed with: "Eut yen would not want to say .aider oath in this court, as you sit there, that no!- a single ransom bill has appeared since the arrest of Haiiptman would you?" "None that I know of." "Will you say that not a ransom bill has appeared anywhere in the world since the arrest of Hauptmann?" "I don't know what has happened throughout the world." "Of course you don't." smacked ,he cross-examiner, C. Lloyd Fisher of the defense staff. Q. Where was the first ransom bill picked up? A. The first that we know of was .n a bant: on Broadway near 72nd St. that was on April 7 or 8, 1932. "The .second," lie said, "was taken n and came to I Hit in a lower Broadway restaurant." HP set the date at approximately May 1, 1932. Q. Did you know that one deposit of $3,000 of the money was made by Max Schlang, a florist of Hew York City? A. No, sir. Corrects Lawyer Q. Do you know that on the clay the gold embargo became effective $2.900 of the ransom money was passed in the Federal Reserve bank in New York City? A. Not that sum. If. was $2,980. The agent said that a "J. J. Faulkner" had passed that amount of money in the Federal Reserve bank that day. "But he couldn't be traced," he added. Q. Isn't it true that J. J. Faulkner committed suicide from the Chrysler building in New York shortly after that? A. I don't know about that. Q. Well he did. Didn't you investigate J. J. Faulkner? A. Yes. Q. Did you find any? A. Several. Two or three had died since 1932. Q, Do you know if the Faulkner bank slip was submitted to handwriting experts for comparison with the defendant's handwriting? A. I was informed it was taken care of. Q. Were you informed whether it was turned over to the handwriting experts? •Faulkner' Not Hauptmann A. Yes. Q. What was the results of that expmination? The agent said the handwriting was not Hauptmann's, according to this information. Q. How much ransom money exclusive of the money here and the $2,980 of the Faulkner deposit, has, been turned in to the treasury? SCOUTS 'Continued from page 1.) Brown. Pampa, Bennet Bond, Wellington, national representatives, After the installation, Mr. Paul presented Mr. Post on behalf of i he council a bronze figure of a Boy Scout. The new budget for 1935, which was set at $4.450 was unanimously ipprovcd by the assembled body. An increase in Scout Executive C. A. Clark's salary from $1,800 to $2,400 was announced. Towns represented were Spearman, Canadian, Wheeler, McLean, Skellytown. Panhandle, Borger, Clarendon. Wellington, Lilly, Morse, LeFors, Hopkins and Pampa. A feature of the entertainment program wns a display of magi- clan's tricks pivrn by Coach Bob Clark of Wheeler, late of the University of Alabama where he starred on the ruinous Crimson Tide football team. For half an hour, Mr. Clark had the audience of 125 men, women pnd boys watch- bis elves and intense in- terrst his thimble, card and rope tricks. They watched him pull an egg out of the inside pocket of Mr. BraswclVs coat, cut a rope in two while two men held it and transform the rops into an unseverccl rope of the same length. Three Wellington Scouts performed more magic. One of the boys "hypnotized" another, blindfolded him. and then had him tie numerous difficult knots. The Panhandle delegation provided a cornet solo by one of the Scouts of that town. Bill Jarratt of Pampa led a sing-song before the guests sat clown to a banquet of steak, potatoes, gravy beans, hot biscuits and apple pie which women of the church provided. It was served "family style" and many left saying, "I've eaten too much—but that food was loo tempting." The chief address of the even- in? was delivered by Mr. Braswell, Clarendon editor, who spoke on the subject, "The Big Idea." Mr. Braswell declared that the present age is an age of ideas, but that the big idea in Scouting has already been supplied, and that the success of Scouting must depend upon volunteers. Quoting Chateaubriand, the speaker said that "in the battle of reality, man's only weapon is imagination," and that although the program of scouting has bsen drafted, it takes men of imagination to make it a reality. T. W. Gilstrap, toastmaster, who dispensed witticisms throughout the evening, announced , the Scout circus to be held in April, and urged all Scouters and Scouts to attend. Mr. Post announced that the executives of the council plan to meet once a month this year. Eagle Badges Awarded Robert Glblln, 15, of Morse, and Paul Buchanan, 15, of Spearman, were made Eagle Scouts in a ceremony conducted by C. R. Stahl of Border. Both were awarded Eagle badges and papers. Elmer Tarbox of Higgins was not present to receive his Eagle badge. Both of the Eagle Scouts present last night were from Hansford county. Giblin was accompanied by Supt. E'peer of Morse. The youth, whose mother died two years ago, works on the farm of a neighbor 15 nilcs from Morse. He received 25 nerit badges to obtain the Eagle ank, and Buchanan received 34. Srnest Cabe, local teacher, was he first scoutmaster of the Morse roop which Cabe organized, and iblin was a member of it. Numerous questions concerning letails of registration and similar :opics were answered by Executive 31ark as the Scouters assembled. Inspiring reports showed the progress of the last year, which ilosed with 55 troops, 1,120 Scouts, i Cub packs, and 23 Cubs. Good progress also was made on the Ten '/car program, which is to given at 'east 25 per cent of the boys reaching 12 years of age four years in Scouting. To train properly the increasing number of boys, men were enlisted in Scouting and the goal of this year is to train at least 75 per cent of the leaders in first aid, Scout methods, and safety methods. The last year demonstrated the many troops HAUPTMANN (Continued from page thc kidnaping of his 20-tnonths- old baby. The state struck two other important blows in Its effort to send Hauptmann to the electric chair for murder, A government agent testified that to his knowledge no Lindbergh ransom bill has appeared in circulation since Hauptmann's arrest. The same agent, Frank Wilson, testified the first ransom bill to come to light after the payment appeared at a Broadway bank in New York not far from the Majestic apartments where Hauptmann was employed before the ransom payment was made. The defense scored with the same agent on the stand when It established that a slip signed '.J. J. Faulkner," which accompanied exchange of $2.980 of the ransom money at the New York federal reserve bank wns not in Hauptmann's handwriting. The significance attached to this point by the defense was emphasized in its cross-examination of the government man nbout the investigation of "J. J. Faulkner" and about the subsequent suicide of a man of that name. (Two days after the exchange of the ransom gold notes was disclosed Jerome K. Faulkner, an advertising copy writer plunged to his death from the top of the Chrysler building). Wilson, who is chief of the intelligence department of the United States department of internal revenue, said he investigated several Faulkners but could not trace the man making the exchange. Osborn Tells of Writing: Identification of the handwriting on the ransom notes as that of Hauptmann was made by Albert S. Osborn Sr., who examined both the notes and specimens of Hauptmann's handwriting made after his arrest. The state considered it one of its strongest pieces of testimony to link Hauptmann to the actual stealing and killing of the baby. Previous testimony was concerned principally with identification of Hauptmann as the ransom receiver. The first ransom note was left on the window sill of the Lindbergh nursery when the baby was taken, the kid- is the conclusion, the onclusion. Q. What pinion. A. My opinion is that the ransom otes were all written by the same and that wrote these writings igned Richard <CQ) Hauptmann. He was asked how many specl- nens he had examined, and he relied: "1 think it was 14." He was handed several exhibits. "I haven't seen these markings," Ssborn declared. "Somebody has ut new markings on them." "Take your time, Mr. Osborn, we re in no haste. Take your time," le court proclaimed loudly. He was asked to repeat his opin- >n, and he said, "The ransom notes ere all written by the writer of lesc other various proved writ- igs." Q. How do you explain your con- lusion? A.Hand me my brief case. Explains Method Used) "First I examined the notes to etermine if all were done by the ame writer," he intoned. 'I first examined these ransom otes in May, 1932.

Then at the moment, so fai as you know, there is roughly $31,000 which has not been returned to the U. S. treasury and is not in your possession at the time of this trial? A. Yes. Claude Morris .of Skellytown business here yesterday work of the boys through community projects. All were ready to assist in any civic enterprise. A general mobilization was held February 11, when 812 boys and 203 adults met in 22 towns of the council to hear President Roosevelt give a national task to Scouting —the clothing drives. Thousands of articles of clothing were assembled for distribution to the needy. Camping: by districts was encouraged in 1934. Camping will be stressed this year to prepare boys to attend the National Jamboree in Washington, D. C. It is hoped that 50 per centi of the troops will have 7 days of camping by August. The courts of honor held 34 sessions in 1934, advancing 146 boys to second class rank, 61 to first class, 37 to Star, 10 to Life, 5 to Eagle, and 4 to Eagle Palm rank. A total of 413 merit badges were awarded in 56 subjects. Financially, the council reported receipts of $3,736.67, and a surplus, of $49.99 as of January 1, 1935. The tentative program for 1935 follows: January—Sixth annual Scouters' convention, just held. . February—Sectional meeting of ninth region, marking 25th anniversary of Scouting in America. Finance campaigns will be sehedulec in all districts. March—Spring training courses, will begin and district meetings, wil be held. April—Area-wide Scout circus, at Pampa. May—Prepare for summer camps June—Live-saving programs wil begin. A mountain camp for senioi Scouts may be held. July—Troop camps and preparation of National Jamboree. Augusts-National Jamboree: September-^. Back-to-School rallies. October—Fall training courses for adult leaders. November—District rallies and merit badge shows. and the state contends that writer of that note was the naper and murderer. Osborn declared Hauptmann wrote that note. Other material evidence of this line which the state expects to produce concerns the ladder at the nursery window pieces of which the state charge came from Hauptmann's attic, and the nails of which, it is charged, match others found in the Hauptmann home. In connection with the defense questioning of Wilson to bring out that the "J. J. Faulkner" bank slip was not in Hauptmann's handwriting, it is the defense contention that a gank "of four persons committed the crime and received the ransom. The state * charges it was all done by, one man. Written' By German Osborn, shown handwriting specimens of Hauptmann's which were introduced yesterday, stated: "My opinion is that the ransom lotcs were all written by the writer of the various papers signed, 'Richard Hauptmann'." He examined all 14 of the ran- om notes, one by one, and said of each that it was written by Haupt- nann. This included the note which was found in the nursery near the empty crib. He repeated his opinion. "Tile ransom notes were all writ; ,cn by the writer of these various Droved writings." Mrs. Anna Hauptmann, wife of ;he prisoner and mother of his own iinall son, flushed deeply when she heard Osborn say her husband wrote the notes. Her eyes anxiously scanned the •eporters as they hurriedly penciled bulletins, then she threw a swift llance at her husband whose fea- ures remained immobile. Hauptmann and his wife talked again together during the recess. Police Head Testifies H. Norman Schwarzkopf, lead of the state police, was the "irst witness called. Former Judge George K. Large, who conducted the examination, showed the colonel some handwriting specimens. Q. Who wrote them? A. Bruno Richard Hauptmann. Q. Under what circumstances were they written. A. Inspector Lyons, of the New York police department, explained to Bruno Richard Hauptmann he wanted specimens of his handwriting and asked if he was willing to give it. He said 'Yes' and from a circular then published Inspector Lyons dictated. Q. Is the spelling his own? A. Yes sir. Q. Referring to whom? A. Hauptmann. Fisher took the witness and askec him to specify the date of the specimen. "Sept. 19," said Schwarzkopf. The defense counsel brought oul Kauptmann had been in custody for a number of hours when the samples were given and was nol represented by counsel. When the exhibit was offered Fisher registered an objection bu was overruled. Schwarzkopf was excused. Orborn Takes Stand Albert S. Osbom Sr., noted handwriting expert was called to th< stand. "I am an examiner of questionec documents," he said when askec his occupation. Osborn said he had worked a his occupation for "upwards o thirty years." He himself, speaks loudly and h wants others to do likewise. "I can't hear as well as I die once," he boomed forth. "I wan the counsel to speak right out." The court assured him that coun sel would raise their voices. "Any question in relation to th qualifications of the witness, Trenchard then asked. There was no defense attack o: his qualifications, and Laniga proceeded, Q. When did you first see th ransom notes? A. May, «33. -® Q. Did you examine them at that ime. A. I did. Q. Did you photograph them? A. Yes. Q. Did you examine them later. A. I had many occasions to ex- mine them. Q. Did you reach a conclusion? A. The conclusion was the writer f the ransom notes had not been ound. All Written By German That was up until September of ast year, he explained. Q. Have you made a careful com- arison of the ransom notes with ne conceded and requested writings f Bruno Richard Hauptmann. A. Yes. Q. Does it give you sufficient laterial for a conclusion? A. Yes, the amount of the writ- ngs is ample on which to base a 7 or 8 different ways." "They were connected •in transparent (films, Joined In one corner, so that examination could show whether any two of the symbol holes are identical. Examination shows they are identical, he said. "It's much easier to compare these films than the originals," Osborn said. The Jurors, impressed at first with Osborn's description, had begun to lose Interest when several huge photographic charts were unrolled and tacked to the wall. Charts Tacked Up The charts showed comparison of the handwriting of Hauptmann and that on the ransom notes. The exhibits were accepted as evidence for the purposes of comparisons. As Hauptmann saw his writings, enlarged possibly fifteen times, placed side by side with the ransom script ond print he looked up with interest. His ears turned red. but he indicated no emotion. Mrs. Hauptmann looked on, her lips slightly parted; and Lindbergh leaned forward Intently. The jury watched the expert with reawakened interest. Pointer in hand the firm voiced expert pointed to the first chart showing samples from the ransom notes side by side with Hauptmann's penmanship. . Hauptmann's 'X' He directed the jury's attention to the great similarity between the "X" in ransom notes and the "X" in Hmiptman's writing. "It Isn't an 'X' at all," he said. "It Isn't German. It Isn't round- hand, it isn't Latin script. "It is an incorrect attempt to make an old roundhand 'X'," and he wrote on a tablet an "X" of that style to show where the ransom note writer made the mistake. pinion by their use of words, spell- ng—peculiar spelling—by the state- .ent of the amount of the ransom lentioned in the first letter and epeated in later letters, and by the tatement in later letters of not re- orting to police,." the expert said. "But mainly I was impressed by he peculiar and ingenious device •hich appeared in the lower right and corner." hs said, referring to ,ie kidnap symbol. He displayed a large photograph i the jury, showing various sec- ions of the notes and their sig- ature. • The white haired witness turned o the first note left in the nursery. 'Signature' Ho called the jury's attention to he sentence "We warn you for nyding public or for notify <polic vords which were repeated ver- atim in a subsequent note. Ho pointed out the notation at !ie bottom "Indication for all let- ers ate singature," and the sym- ol. The word "singature" for signa- ure was stressed. Speaking of the symbol, he said he two concentric rings were made y "some implement which did not ake ink well—a crude device, such s a bottom of the bottle or porce- ain or china cup. "Bu,t the most significant things re the holes." "Tlie three holes," he said were onnected with each other, unmis- akably. 'A pattern was made, and they vere all of that pattern." He dwelt at length on each science. "Now he has here the sentence Wy did you gignore'—now notice hat 'n' before the 'g', just the ame as in 'signature,'— " 'Wy did you ignore auer—' —no- ice that -a-u-er again, 'auer let- er which was left in the room,'" le concluded. "That is more than miss-spell- ng," the expert opined. "They can .andly be described as miss-spelling, hey are a peculiar combination of etters." He noted a difference in the first ansom note, the one found on the Lindbergh nursery window sill. "The first letter is written with nore deliberation," he said, "than any other letter. "But," he added hastily, "it was he same writer." The expert pointed to another pe- luliarity of the ransom notes, the jse of "the for they is an error which appears many times." When Osborn had concluded this opening dissertation on the cal- graphy and characteristics of ,the •ansom notes, Lanigan offered in evidence the lengthy photographic ;hart which the expert used to il- ustrate his remarks. The luncheon recess was then ordered. • Justice Trencijard took the bench at 1:46 p. m. and the afternoon session got underway with Osborn recalled to the stand for further direct examination. Heilly moved an adjournment over Saturday. Reilly reminded the court that last week it had promised to give ;he defense the opportunity to examine the ransom notes. In announcing the adjournment Justice Trenchard said: "I've had time to think about this matter. "I think the request shall be granted." Osborn's testimony was hardly of the question and answer variety One question from Lanigan and he would launch forth into a lengthy discussion of the handwriting point in question. Lanigan, asked if Osborn woulc be on direct examination the rest of the day, replied: "I'm afraid so." "In further explanation of the identity of these so called devices or signatures, I have transparent films of these 11 signatures," Osborn said. ' "Thees H we fastened together so that any fine can be compared with any pttier." Be exhibited to the )wy some PHILADELPHIA, Jan 11 (AP)— A radio account of the Hauptmann trial led John Condon, 26-year-old art instructor, to notify authorities that he was the borrower of a .book of symbols from the New York public library, about which defense attorneys questioned Dr. Jchn F. (Jafsie) Condon. Mention of the book was made in the 1 trial during cross-examination of Dr. Condon on Wednesday. Edward J. Reilly, defense counsel, sought to bring out that it was "Jafsie" who signed for the book •r- Koch's work on German symbols. The library slip showed the name 'John . Condon," Reilly said, MAWT NEW YORK, Jan. 11. (fP)— Stocks were subjected to rather heavy selling pressure in the latter part of today's market session. The downward flurry apparently was prompted by a revival of fears that the highest court might declare unconstitutional the administration's monetary program. The close was weak.
