Blackmail, former general news editor of The Associated Press, covered the Lindbergh's kidnap case when he was an AP reporter. Blackman, now retired, tells the story of that tragedy. By SAMUEL G. BLACKMAN NEW YORK (AP) Forty-two years have passed since Col Charles Lindbergh's son, 19-month-old Charles Jr. was kid- napped from the Lindberghs' home in Hope well, N.J. Bruno Richard Hauptmann, a 36-year-old Bronx carpenter, died in New Jersey's electric chair for the child's murder. But the then-governor, the late Harold Hoffman, stirred wide controversy by expressing doubt even on the eve of the execu- tion and many years later that Hauptmann committed the crime or could have done it alone. I covered the kidnapping that blustery night of March 1, 1932, and the execution of Hauptmann the night of April The case against him was largely one of circumstantial evidence and Hauptmann continued to insist he was innocent. In the intervening years there has never been a shred of evidence to alter the verdict that Hauptmann acted alone. The baby, first son of the famous flyer and the former Anne Morrow, had been tucked early in the evening into his crib because he was suffering from a cold. Several hours later, nursemaid Betty Gow visited the nursery on the second floor and found the baby missing. Lindbergh, reading in the downstairs library, searched the nursery in vain. "Anne, they have stolen our he testified later that he told his wife. Began search He notified the state police, took a rifle from a closet and began a search of the estate. He was accompanied by three state troopers when I came across him. "I'm Col. he said, introducing himself. "I can't say anything now." With flashlights blinking, he and two troopers continued the search. One stayed behind and related what was then known Miss, Gow had found the crib empty, and a ransom note, a wooden ladder and a chisel had been found. Much of the case against Hauptmann turned on this ransom note and on later ones and on the ladder. The original note, crudely and ungrammatically written, demanded in bills in bills and in bills." The note said: "After 2-4 days we will inform you where to deliver the money." The "signature" on the note, and promised on future ones, was two interlapping circles with three square holes. Dr. John Condon, a Bronx schoolteacher, was named intermediary and became famous as "Jafsie" from his initials J. F. C. On the night of April 2, 1932, Condon paid the to a man who from a hedge in a Bronx cemetery yelled, "Hey, doctor'' and again, "Hey, doctor, over here." In return Condon got a note which said, "The boy is on the Boad Nelly you will find the Boad between Horseneck Beach and Gay Head near Elizabeth the waters off Martha's Vineyard, Mass. Lindbergh searched there and in many other places in vain. For two months by land, sea and air he pursued flimsy clues and phantom ships and then learned when he returned May 12 from a search off the Virginia Capes that the child's body had been found in a shallow grave five miles from the Lindbergh home. Recognizes voice Lindbergh had gone with Condon to the Bronx cemetery and had waited in a car. He was asked at Hauptmann's trial: "Have you heard that voice "I have." "Whose voice was "It was the voice of Bruno Hauptmann." The ransom money led to Hauptmann's arrest. The govern- ment had distributed circulars giving the serial numbers of the notes in gold certificates, in other paper currency. On April 5, 1933, President Roosevelt, in a measure born of the depression, ordered that all persons possessing more than of gold certificates exchange them by May 1 for other currency at banks of the Federal Reserve System. On a central map at state police headquarters in Trenton, N.J., Col. Norman Schwarzkopf, the superintendent, stuck a locator pin where each note was found. Most of them were in the Bronx. It was there that Walter Lyle, a gas station attendant, received a gold note on Sept. 15, 1934, and wrote on it the licence number of the car whose driver bought five gallons of gas. Hauptmann was arrested four days later. He had a gold note on his person and in, his garage they found more. Hauptmann's explanation was that the money had been given to him in a shoe box by a friend and business partner, Isidor Fisch, when Fisch left for Germany. He died there before Hauptmann was arrested. Seven handwriting experts for the state compared the; handwriting on the ransom notes with Hauptmann's handwriting and testified at the murder trial that Hauptmann wrote them all. Wood traced Arthur Koehler, a wood technologist of the United States, forest products laboratory of Madison, Wis., one of the state's star witnesses, traced the wood in the kidnap ladder from a mill in McCormich, S.C., to boards from Hauptmann's attic. Koehler said a ladder rail had once been part of a floor board in the attic. Koehler said he laid the board on a joist in the attic and found the nail holes in the board matched those in the joist. Koehler said that knives which plane lumber at a mill often leave tell-tale markings on the wood. He said he detected a tingy groove which he knew had been made by a knife of a cer- tain type. He spent 18 months checking planing mills to trace the origin of the wood. One with markings spaced like those on the ladder rail led to the South Carolina firm, Koehler said. He traced 45 carloads of lumber from the mill to 25 firms and in November, months before Hauptmann's a lumber company in the Bronx which had lumber with markings matching those on the ladder rail. Hauptmann had brought worth of lumber there is 1931. "He has got this ladder right around his Attorney- General David Wilentz told the jury. Wilentz prosecuted the case. Wilentz argued the ladder broke as Hauptmann was leaving the nursery "and down he went with this child." He said the child died instantly and then said of Hauptmann: "Knowing the child was dead he yanked and ripped that sleeping garment of that child off his body he didn't need the child he needed the sleeping garment. some few miles away he scooped up a hastily improvised and shallow grave and; put this child in it face downwards." Condon received the sleeping garment in the mail as proof, that he was dealing with the right man. Hoffman, who had granted Hauptmann one 30-day reprieve, the day before he was scheduled to die, said he shared "with; hundreds of thousands of our people the doubt as to the value of< the evidence that placed him in the nursery on the night of the crime." ;
