KINNEY (Copyriirht, 1936, by the Associated Press) -'» N. J M Feb. 4.— barred shadow of the IJnd- kldnap ladder once more fell ^,^-eiy across the Bruno Haupt- iijfthn trial today as Jersey prosecutors, armed ; with new informa- tioii obtained In week-end investigations, marshalled a relentless attack on defense alibi evidence. As the trial resumed in what some thought would be its final Jyeek, the prosecution professed to haVe uncovered damaging circumstances attacking Hauptmann's de- mftl that his tools and lumber fashioned the ladder. %e spearhead of the new ladder attack again will be Arthur J. Koehler, federal wood expert. The state indicated he will take the stand in rebuttal testimony. It' was Koehler who traced the lumber Used in the ladder to Haupt- mftnn, and who gave expert testimony linking tool marks on the wood to the Bronx carpenter's tool kit. 'This time a small pine wall bracket, the prosecution Indicated, will be the material for Koehler's testimony. Koehler, it was said, through microscopic examination traced the tool marks on the bracket in the Hauptmann garage to his plane. .The state was prepared to use this information to meet Haupt- ni^nn's allegation he had not used the plane sinco 1928. By Hauptmann's own admission, the garage at his Bronx home was not built until after his California trip in 1931. Koehler's evidence will tend to prove, the state believed, that Hauptmann used the plane as late ai; 1031. This testimony would support Koehler's contention that the tool marks on the Wood in the ladder were made by Hauptmann's plane, and would attack the truth of Hauptmann's whole denial to using tho tools. The prospect of a new court battle over the ladder somewhat overshadowed the return to the witness stand of Peter Sommer, the defense "surprise" witness who in- ferentialjy linked the kidnaping to Violet Sharpe, the Morrow maid, and, Isador Fisch, Hauptmann's business partner. Both Miss Sharpe and Flsch are dead. • •A continuance of withering cross- examination by Attorney General Da.vid T. Wilentz faced Sommer. Wilentz had at hand the results of a.n investigation of the defense witness' background made during tjip week-end. >'."r:will 'prove conclusively that the . dahgling on the witness flwlild was somewhere else at the iMine'," Wilentz announced.

Shouse Assails Work-Relief Act As Dictatorship PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 4 (/P) — Jouett Shouse, president of the American Liberty League, asasilee the administration's $4,880,000 000 work-relief bill today as "the most revolutionary, unjustified and unwise attempt at absolute delegation of legislative authority to the executive ever witnessed in this country." If it passes congress and goes unchallenged in the courts, he asserted in an address prepared for delivery to the Philadelphia Country League of Women Voters, "it is a certain indication of the disintegration oi the form of government under which wo have lived and in which we have professed to believe." "The issue," he added, "is whether democracy shall continue to Wold sway in this republic or ' Greatness Is Explained by WTSTC Lecturer ..'.CANYON, Feb. 4.—"The center of the'world has -moved from the At- JlHJtic to the Pacific, and the im- pflflant world problems of this century promise to be those of the Faj 1 East, 1 ' declared Dr. No-Yong Park in an address here. 'Dr. Park, 'author, Harvard scholar, 1 and lecturer on Oriental subjects—declares that people who believe that Japan is a weak country have been misinformed and that those who believe that Japan jitas no industrial future have failed to realize that she has almost unlimited- water power, that the people have "a simple mode of life, and that Japan Is better organized than t-hj) United States to. compete in World markets. , : :^.Statistics are misleading," said ~", Park, ''for instance, statistics fer mention the value of Japan's ling waters which are almost united in extent and which are as valuable, acre for acre, as gardening in the United Japan imported no food for .

The ice weakened by unusually mild weather, suddenly was split by enormous fissures. Watchers on (he shore saw the ice open and the archduke's ice-yacht and the other boat racing directly for the open water. A snowstorm blew up, cutting off the scene like a, curtain.'*-' A few minutes later the snowstorm faded, showing only'an expanse of open water where the yachts had been. Albrecht's yacht was doing railts an hour when he and companions found themselves on narrow lane of ice with water on both sides.- ^Vn enormous ropkpile rose up through the surface and blocked the way to the shore. By skill and luck, however, the ice-yacht was swung around the rocks and guided on to the. strong ice at the lake's edge. Despite the danger, rescue parties started out from the shore from which Albrecht last had been seen. Even as they got under way, hlow- ever, the telephone rang, and the voice of the archduke himself told the rescuejsthathe..,wa4 safe. Use News classified advertising. M. P., . Autoifciobi Short! PAGE THREE MAY REPEAL CLAUSES IN VERSAILLES' M TREATY LONDON, Feb. 4. (/P> — A new scheme to buttress the shaky foundations of European peace, envisaging Germany's restoration to pcmplete equality in the society of nations, commanded the attention of continental chancelleries today, s Product of the week-end's mo- nientous conversations between the premiers and foreign ministers of Great Britain and France, the new formula would provide for a simultaneous settlement, of all the problems which currently beset .European stability. . . The negotiations gave Finance's campaign for security its'most important impetus since the world war in a proposal for regional aerial defense pacts to provide the nations participating with reciprocal assurances of assistance in repelling an unprovoked aerial attack. Great Britain and France plainly indicated their .readiness to .enter into such a defensive alliance and suggested that the other European powers be invited to join. Tile conversations made certain that negotiations with Germany will be opened Immediately looking toward settlement of the armament and security questions and the reich's return to the League of Nations. The enticing bait to be hung before Chancellor Adolf Hitler is a promise of repeal of the military clauses of the treaty of Versailles. Such a concession would bring a successful culmination to the reichs- fuehrer's unremitting campaign to restore Germany to its full stature as a sovereign power. The French and British governments, sponsoring the new • plan with Italy's approval, are convinced their formula is so fair that Germany must accept or forever be an outcast. By its terms France no longer will insist that the questions of security and Germany's return to Qeneva take priority over legalization of the reich's rearmament. Instead, it is agreed that all problems affecting European tranquility shall be accorded parallel treatment. In making this sacrifice, France obtained from Great Britain the recognition of the security claims which have formed the corner stone of her international policy since the world war. > The proposed aerial defensive alliance signifies that either nation must rush planes to the aid of the other in the event of an unprovoked attack from the air. Germany, Italy and Belgium are to be invited to participate in this defensive pact, but French official quarters insist that England and France will conclude the agreement no matter what action the other nations take.
