Dr. John F. fjnfsiei Condon testified for the state Hint llmintmnnn leaped ever a cemetery fence to meet him and that he siibreqiirntly paid tr> Hauptmann the $50,000 Ijml- bfgh ransom. Hauptmnnn's defense, denying that he was the man who collected the. $50,000 Lindbergh ransom on April 2, 1D32, used th:> testimony of a Bronx taxi driver in an effort to show there were four mysterious persons near St. Raymond's cemetery in the Bronx at about the time of the payment. Taxi Driver Is Witness Phillip Moses, who had been First "Shot" in Paralysis War EVENING, FEBKl/ARY 6, quoted as saying his story would "bust this case wide open." testified he picked up three fares shortly after 8 p. m., April 2, 1932, and drove them past the gat; of the cemetery where Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon said lie paid Hauotmann the ransom money while Colonel Lindbergh waited in an auto. He said he drove the three men two blocks past the gate. They jumped out, he said, and met a fourth man. whereupon the quartet huddled for a conference. Then they got into a gray car which stalled, he said, and he helped them to get it started. Moses was not allowed to testify to something he said one of the men had told him. Another alibi witness followed the taxi driver. Mrs. Maria Mueller Hauptmann's niece, testified he was at his home for a birthday party on the nieht of November 26, 1933, when a theater cashier says he proffered a Lindbergh ransom bill in payment for a ticket. The defense lost, at least temporarily, a battle to fores Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, head of the New Jersey police, to reveal what he told newspapers during the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnaping.

A petition on the police head's behalf was presented at the opening of court. He asked to be released from a subpoena duces tecum through which the defense sought to maka him produce all his press releases from the date of the kid- naping to November 1 of the same year. Assistant Attorney General Joseph A. Lanigan argued the Subpoena v/as "too indefinite and uncertain." Schwarzkopf was on the stand as a defense witness yesterday. He couldn't rcsall that he had ever said in one cC the releases that the suicicls cf Violet Sharpe, a maid in the home of Mrs. Dwight W.

"During the day if I can get my witnesses here from New York, I hops to prove Isador Fisch was the man who jumped over the (Woodlawn) cemetery fence; that he received the money from Dr. Condon. "I am going to prove how he tried to dispose of that money. I am going to trace every connection of Fisch with that money until he took a boat for Germany." His voice rising, Rcilly declared he would bring cut that Fisch sought to leave the money package "with this witness and others" before he finally placed it in Hauptmann's custody. Wilentz remarked dryly as he finished, "I can find nothing wrong in the counsel's statement, but the state is confident he will never prove anything like that." "I can find no fault with counsel's assertion he is going to prove it," Wilentz interrupted, "but the question is the matcriabillty of evidence of a woman who never saw Fisch before and didn't know what the bundles contained." 'I failed to see the matrlality now," ruled Justice Trenchard. Reily asked permission to withdraw the witness temporarily, while he developed another way of presenting the testimony.
