TWO MEN CHOSEN TO NEGOTIATE RELEASE; *Salvy' Spitale And Irving' Bitz Desi^rnated As Intermediaries; Brief Statement Given Out; Sailor's Testimony Is Guarded. HARTFORD, Corm., Marchf copyright, 5 {IP)-Henry (Red) Johnson, WILL DISCUSS RELIEF WORK Englewood, N. J., sailor, was held for further questioning' in connection with the kidnaping of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh's baby tonight as a result of inforaiation obtained by county officers in a prolonged grilling. Two possible links in the case were made public by officials as a partial basis for detaining Johnson, a friend of Miss Betty Cow, the child's nurse. One of these clues was a milk bottle cap, dated Wednesday and apparently used by a New Jersey dairy, found in Johnson's green coupe in which he said he arrived at a brother's home in West Hartford at 1:30 a. m., that day. The other was the disclosure that the ladder u.sed by the kidnapers was of the same type and kind of wood as those used in a Bronx shipyard in which Is kept the yacht of Thomas W. Lamont, New York banker and .Johnson's former employer. Story Conflicts The milk bottle cab, said an official v.dio would not permit the use of his name, would Indicate that Johnson could not have arrived here at the � PARENTS FINGERPRINTED HOPEAVELL, N.

J., March 6-(Sunday)-(.ff^-Two men were designated by Colonel and Mrs. Charles A. Lindbergh early today to act as "go-betweens" in a new plea for negotiations with the kidnapers of their baby son. A statement signed by the Lindberghs and telephoned from their home here to state police at Trenton said: r- "If the. kidnapers of our child are unwilling to deal directly with us we fully authorize 'Salvy' Spitale and Irving Bitz to act as our go-between. We will also follow any other method suggested by the kidnapers that we can be sure will bring the return of . our child." Major Charles A. Schoeffel of the New Jersey state police gave out the statement from the Lindbergh home, but a spokesman there  said he never had heard of either Spitale or Bitz. New York newspaper files showed that a SaJvatore (Salvy) Spitale had figured In the police investigation of the shootiiijr of the late Jack (Legs) Diamond in the Hotel Monticello in New York on October 12, 1930.
