Charleston Daily Mail (Newspaper) - January 15, 1935, Charleston, West Virginia THE CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL, TUESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 15.1935 PAGE THREE Third Expert Says Hauptmann Penned the Kidnaping Letters fitnesses Prom Abroad Land With Detective; New Angle in Jersey Trial Hinted (Continued from Pago One) today to break the testimony af handwriting experts. Slate attorneys declined to disclose identity of the witness, other than to say that he came from Cincinnati and would provide connecting information in the development of the case against Bruno Richard Hauptmann, “essential but not particularly startling." C. Lloyd Fisher of the defense staff has declared himself “convinced that Fisch was implicated'' in the kidnaping. The defense gave no indication that its term “educated man" had any reference to Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon, the retired Bronx educator who identified Hauptmann as the receiver of the $50,000 Lindbergh ransom. It hinted, though, that it would try to show' that police forced Hauptmann to include in his specimen writings the peculiar characters and misspellings found in the ransom notes. Testimony Bores Court Point by point Mr. Tyrrell covered the points brought out by the two previous state experts, tracing the similarities and peculiarities which he found in both the Hauptmann and ransom writings. ing to Colonel Lindbergh that evening when Miss Alexander noticed Hauptmann. Indirectly, Miss Alexander’s evidence was considered by the state another attack at what it styles the “Fisch myth.” Miss Alexander’s appearance provided a brief surprise interlude in the .state's pointed, deliberate presentation of handwriting testimony. The state experts have been positive in their evidence that the Bronz ex-convict wrote the ransom notes. Even against a merciless cross-examination. they have taken elaborate care to point out they are convinced Hauptmann wrote the ransom notes, not because of any isolated one, two or a dozen similarities but because so many unique handwriting characteristics appeared in the ransom notes and Hauptmann's writing.

It is the duty of the Republican members of the legislature to preserve the natural resources of the state “for the good of all the people,” Thomas J. Barrett, president of the recently-organized West Virginia Republican league, told legislator-members of his party at a dinner Monday night. Mr. Barrett said, "We must develop policies and a program for the party that will be for the benefit of all the people and not for a chosen few.” He added: “Protection of the forests, water power and other natural resources of the state properly come within the purview of lawful determination by the legislature. It is intended that this organization shall make a compre-sive study of all the natural resources and possibly, if it may find it desirable, to make suggestions and recommendations to the legislature which will have the purpose of protecting these natural resources in the best manner possible for the present and future generations.” Harry W. Bayer, Republican delegate from Putnam county, was toastmaster. He said that “the purpose of the league is not to foster the political ambitions of any one person, but to disseminate information so that a complete Republican ticket can be elected in this state." George W. Sharp, former secretary of state, told the meeting that “by presenting a harmonious and united front.

A request by Putnam county to the Charleston chapter of the Red Cross, to form a separate chapter, was granted Monday night at a meeting of the chapter’s executive committee in the library building. Mrs. Nelle Huneke, executive secretary of the chapter, said Tuesday that Putnam county is now one of the three counties under the jurisdiction of the Charleston chapter. The action of the chapter in granting the request means that Putnam county may petition national headquarters for a charter. The committee reported that during December 395 ex-service cases w’ere given assistance in various ways. I Service and relief w’ere given to 77 civilian cases. The chapter distributed 259 articles of clothing and 123 comforts and blankets to 50 adults and 75 children. At Christmas eight families, including 63 children, living in remote sections of the county, received candy and toys which were the donations of interested persons. Forty-eight blankets were given to Hillcrest and 24 to the St. Albans branch of the Charleston chapter. Eight layettes were distributed in the city at the request of the Charleston Public Health Nursing association, and nine were distributed throughout the county. working time to examining “questioned documents.” He mentioned several cases, including the Loeb-Leopold case in Chicago, in which he had testified.

Mo,—There is one thing, at least, for which this city may claim distinction. Id has no child prodigies.
