victim declared through counsel to day she did so at the instance of Fred M Sackett former U S sen ator and former ambassador to Ger many The announced position of the elder Robinson was that he had

conflict of evidence upon this record Removal Made Quickly After the decision was announced Fawcett said he would appeal no further and steps to take Haupt mann to New Jersey were quickly taken
