John S. McGroarty (D., Cal.) today
called upon “millions of Townsend
supporters” to decide whether they
support him or continue in the

there would be no quarter in his

Rep. McGroarty charged that Dr.
Townsend had deserted the original
plan to raise pension funds from a

of a plan to issue tax-exempt secur

Young Executive, Once Mentioned as Candidate for

By TJnited Press
TRENTON, N. J„ March 31. —If Bruno Richard Hauptmann is exe

may perish politically with him.
“The man who might have been President” is the epitome of the
ambitions of Gov. Harold G. Hoff

next thing to a miracle, the electric
current that kiils Hauptmann prob
ably will end Gov. Hoffman's once
brilliantly promising career.
It's hard to say now and why Gov.
Hoffman became embroiled in the
crime that, before it shattered him,
had wrecked many lives with mur
der, suicide, fear and disgrace. Be
fore he dramatically visited Haupt

I conduct has been suggested on the
! floor of the Assembly.
He has accepted the decline of his
popularity philosophically, but the
blow has been hard.
Gov. Hoffman was a newspaper
employe at 12, an Army captain at
21, a banker at 25. a mayor at 27,
a congressman at 30, and Governor
at 38. Rotund and heavy but pos
sessed of an almost incredible ca
pacity for hard work, he has been a
great individual vote getter. That
very ability to fight night and day
has hurt him in the Lindbergh case,
for his adverse publicity has been in
direct ratio to the vigor of his de
fense of Hauptmann.
Gov. Hoffman's gubernatorial term
expires in 1937. New Jersey law does
not permit his re-election. His
friends guess that he will abandon
his political career to publish a
newspaper or accept a business post.

to his mother in Germany. He
even discussed with the guards
whether it would be possible for him
to make a radio appeal to the world
for any one who knew anything
about the Lindbergh crime to come
forward and tell it. The guards
told him no.
He trembled and paled again
when the guards came this morning
to begin preparing him for death,
but his voice told them:
“I'm not afraid to die.”
