OF KIDNAP SECRET Criminologists Believe New Developments in Case Will Be Local. fiprcial Dispatch to The Star. HOPEWELL. N. J . May 14.—If fur ther developments occur in the mystery that surrounds the kidnaping and sub sequent brutal murder of the Lindbergh baby, they will in all probability lie within a radius as close to the famous aviator's Isolated home on Sourland Mountain as the woodland tract in Which the little body was found. While police authorities of various cities. States and of the Nation are to day directing unleashed efforts over a wide area, there is now every reason to believe that the case is a local one and that if it is ever solved all the findings will relate to this desolate Sourland region. This throughout has been the opinion of some of the most astute criminol ogists in this country. Robert Shindler of New York for one. just as it has been a theory entertained by certain unoffi cial observers whose business took them to the vicinity of Hopewell in connec tion with this crime. Amateurs Suspected. That organized criminals, any gang ster element or, in fact, professional criminals of whatever sort had anything to do with the stealing of the baby was never regarded as a tenab ? theory bv those who have given their lives to a study of American crime. Prom the first, basing judgment upon such facts as were known, they ascribed the kid naping as a work of impulse commit ted. deftly though it was accomplished by a person or persons committing their first major crime. Were this not so it is entirely con ceivable that underworld influences, invoked in an effort to get in touch with the kidnapers, would have been successful. As it was. these agents from the first were as obviously groping In the dark as were the police. It is an Interesting fact about this Sourland area in New Jersey that in many cases the original farmers, earn ing a precarious existence from this unproductive soil, either died out or sold their farms to city dwellers—so that today in this region you find the isolated farms and shacks either occu pied by transplanted urbanites or else Uninhabited and going to ruin. Some Under Suspicion. Some of these city products are solid Citizens and others have been drawn hither by the opportunities of profit from the manufacture and sale of applejack. Not every one in this sparsely aettled country is wholly above sus picion and it may well be that signifi cance exists in the statement of Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf head of the Jer sey State Police, that lie is now in a position to take action in the direction of certain parties suspected. As to the local nature of the crime, after this writer had spent some time trailing the small group of State police who were canvassing the forest-cov ered hills and valleys of the Souriand in the days immediately following the kidnaping, the fact became apparent that no force the size of the State po lice could by any possibility cover this area. And so far as could be seen, no attempt was made to dragnet the for est land. All that was being done was to visit and inspect shacks and other buildings upon the various lonely roads contiguous to Hopewell. Very easily, it seemed, could there be forest shacks. I caves and the like where the kidnaper, could remain immured. Thus impressed, the project of call ing out a brigade of National Guard: Infantry and having every foot of this . region minutely inspected, just as in ! war time a maneuver would be con ducted to op.n up a concealed enemy, was submitted to Gov. A. Harry Moore of New Jersey. He considered the plan, but in the end refused to sanction it. on the ground that it might be misin terpreted as a political move in the direction of the spectacular. No doubt the Governor's reasoning was sound and lcgical: but the fact remains that had this search been made, the body of the Lindbergh babv would have been found at a very early date. For there now seems no doubt that the child was killed either immediately after he was taken a safe distance from the Lindbergh home or only a few days thereafter, the crime being committed not far from the spot where the body was found. Threat Made Good, In such case the kidnapers made good the threat contained in their notes found in the baby's room—that if Col. Lindbergh invoked police.a.d, the baby would be killed. With the entire country aroused, they dared not keep the child any length of time. Any one motoring through this section of Jersey or through E'st ern Pennsylvania will appreciate how thorough was the supervision of motor cars, all vehicles in fact, and of pedes trians. It was the opinion of eminent crimi nologists. dating from a week after the crime, that the baby was no longer living; and when 60 days had elapsed they were certain of tins. In all the criminal history of this country there have been only 25 kid naping cases involving infants under 3 years old. About half were eventually returned and the other half either murdered or never heard from. In m case on reccrd have 60 days elapsed and a kidnaped child baen restored to Its parents’ arms. i Copyright. 1932 I ■-• A Dutch air liner recently flew the 230 miles from London to Roue, dam at an average speed of 134 miles an hour. _ _SPECIAL NOTICES. 1 WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY debts contracted by any one r,' her ::.hn my self A_J.

MOUNTAINEERS MURDERERS OF BABY. BURNS DECLARES Noted Detective Certain Inhabitants of Sourland Hills Committed Crime. Proposes Large Rewa rd as Aid. One of the foremost private detec tives in the country, partner in the cgrnev founded by his father, the late WtViam J. Burns, who was chief cf the United States secret service, presents here his deductions in the Lindbergh case. BY W. SHERMAN BURNS. Special D.spatcl^to The Star. NEW YORK. May 14 <N A N A.).— Discovery cf the Lindbergh baby, mur dered, has brought the kidnapers closer to capture than all clues combined since the crime was committed. Aside from ripping the lid off the investigation and stimulating the police to new efforts, the circumstances under which the body was found narrow the scope of the in quiry. It is apparent now, I believe, that the Sourland Mountains, which held the secret of the murder of Col. Lindbergh's infant son for 72 days, must hold also the clue to the identity of the crim inals. This seems a logical deduction to follow the significant fact that the body was hidden only a relatively short distance from the Lindbergh home. In a case of this sort a thousand and one possibilities occur Immediately to an investigator from the few facts at hand—the circumstances under which the crime was committed, the ladder, the place where the r..nsom was paid. The only way to arrive at succes? is to select the most plausible theory, that seems to fit all the circumstances, and investigate along those lines. Time of Murder Important. The first point to be decided is whether the child was murdered the night of the kidnaDing. If the coroner cannot determine this, expert woodsmen should be and probably have been put to work to try to discover evidence how long ago the child was buried. From my own experience. I know that the time of greatest danger for a kidnaped person is not immediately after the crime, but in the days fol lowing, when the living evidence be comes an increasing liability That is why kidnaped people are frequently re leased without any ransom being paid. It happened that these persons fell into the" hands of crocks who, known colloquially as •'killers.” would act dif ferently if they became alarmed, be lieving as they do that dead men—espe cially dead children—tell no tales. If it can be proved that the child was slain a day or more after the kidnaping the field of the inquiry is much nar rowed. It must occur to every one that the kidnapers, once they had left the vicinity, would never return. Then it must follow, from the discovery of the body that the kidnapers never left the vicinity at all and quite probably are still in the Sourland Mountains—a place that could have furnished them sufficient security during the intensive search that followed the abduction. Neighborhood Criminals Suspected. There is a strong possibility the crim inals were familiars of Sourland Moun tains. The fact of the ladder having been made by a man who, while not an expert carpenter, was familiar with tools, the circumstances surrounding the crime, the fact that Ultransom was transferred in uptown Ni York ia place which, to the criminal mind, does not suggest New Jersey and yet is not too far away to make a lengthy absence Home Sites Rock Creek Hills Fronting 16th St. or Rock Creek Park R. E. Latimer 1601 Jonquil Street Georgia 1271 necessary) and the one damning fact that the body was hidden where it was—a!! point to neighborhood crim inals and to the Sourland Mountains. The mountains have such an un savory reputation that to state this is no libel. And I can understand readily how. if the criminals are resi dents of the district, police have failed thus far to unearth them. From an investigation we made into a Sourland Mountains murder in 1916, I can con firm at first hand the fact that only lengthy under-ccver work conducted with the utmost secrecy can draw any information from these hill people. This is not to say that all the residents ire criminal^ but it is a fact that many of them sense a barrier between them selves and the law and resist giving information to police officers. Tells of Trapping Murderers. In 1916 we were called to investi gate the murder of Richard Wyckoff. 80. and his housekeeper, Catherine Ann Fisher. 76. William Henry Wyckoff. beneficiary under the will of the mur dered man, had been arrested for the crime and indicted. We sent one of our operatives and his wife to live in the hills, and a few weeks later sent an of ficer, with a badge pinned outside his coat, to question the mountaineers. He, of course, failed to get any information, but he served the valuable purpose of stimulating discussion — discussion to which my under-ccver operatives were party. It was the information gathered in this way which led us directly to the actual criminals, who were tried and sentenced. I don't believe the Lindbergh crime was committed by a gang. The police have the underworld sewn so thickly with spies that a rumble must have come to the surface long before if a professional gang w'ere implicated. It seems to me. also, that the crime w’as not committed by a ma.niac or for re venge. The fact of the ransom elimi nates these possibilities. There aie two types of people police have to search for now—a woman of the Ruth Snyder type, with a definite lack in her emotional make-up. and a man or men who. while not profes sional ‘'killers,” are emotionally of the killer type. Proposes Reward. It would seem sensible at this time for a large reward to be offered for the apprehension of the criminals, not only to spur police activity, which hard ly seefns necessary in view of the gen eral indignation, but to create fear and distrust among the murderers of the Lindbergh baby. With the lure of huge rewards for evidence, members of the group will begin to suspect one an other. and may possibly even come to blows. I have refused many requests to com ment on the Lindbergh case thus far for obvious reasons. Now I feel that the discovery of the child's body has removed these restrictions, but i still feel that it is unethical for me to go into any greater details as to how a fruitful investigation can be conducted.

North 3400 From the Front Row Reviews and News of Washington s Theaters. "Grand Hotel." At Loew's Columbia. AS Will Rogers has said, " 'Grand Hotel' is probably the only hotel that will make money this year." This multi-starred cinema production of one of the most suc cessful stage and literary ventures of recent years, shown yesterday at Loew’s Columbia for the first time. may Do put nign up on the list ol real screen achievements. The rather staggering re port that it cost Hollywood some $900,000 need not be worried over too acutely —since, judging from the results, and from the enthusiasm shown by the audience (ex cept by those who still insist that the play nlavs rings Grrta Garbo. * around this version), me oox omce totals should triple that amount be fore many moons have waned. The arguments which are currently going the rounds as to who does the best work in the picture have been entered into with light-hearted fury by this department. * , the present moment (and after the second sit ting) we are inclined to believe that Lionel Barrymore and Greta Garbo, in the order named, deserve the highest medals of valor. Mr. Barrymore, because he interprets Kringelein after his own fashion iunlike the book and the play and yet still magnificently), and Miss Garbo, because being the last person tn the world who should play the role of a ballet dancer, and looking alternately uglier and handsomer than she ever has before, she dominates the pictures at the moment she enters it. The other "stars*' are. however, no slouches. Joan Crawford, some what miscast, nevertheless does a fine piece ^of acting, ditto Wallace Beery, and if John Barry-more seems a trifle stiff it is only because the di rector probably told him that Ger man barons are stiff. A minor char acter, but one who does outstanding work, is that waxen-faced lady who plays the role of Miss Garbo's maid. Then there are Lewis Stone. Jean Hersholt and half a dozen others to prove to you that M-G-M used most every one on their lot except Norma Shearer. Bob Montgomery and Ra mon Novarro. While the players, directed with bewildering excellence by that past master craftsman, Edmund Gould ing. are a gilded and talented group, the work of the eamerman who plunges vou over the inner balcony of the hotel to get a glimpse into the lobby, and who has achieved the most beautiful "still” of the year of Miss Garbo tin her ballet dress— taking off her slippers) must be mentioned particularly. The man ner in which Cameraman Daniels snaps his players and his back ground is certainly uncanny. And if he doesn't make Garbo look hand some in one of those butter-plate hats, it isn't, after all, his fault. E. de S. MELCHER. Elissa Landi in Fox Film With Wesley Eddy on Stage. \ N ingenious murder story, with situations which give some sur prising turns to the plot, presents ; Elissa Landi under circumstances 1 which are favorable to appreciation of her exceptional qualities in the film at Loew's Fox Theater. Per I sonality is stamped upon her acting. ; and in "The Woman in Room 13" there is frequent demand upon her emotional capacity, while the less striking scenes illuminate her nat ural fitness lor the displav of the normal character of an alert and forceful person. Mystery marks the development of this dramatic work, one of the im pressive incidents of which centers in the sacrifice of a wife. w’ho, in a court room scene, accepts the dis grace of conduct of which she is not guilty in order to save her husband from punishment by furnishing the motive of the unwritten law. The dictaphone is used extensively in connection with various plots, and the force of a public trial is added to the dramatic moments of the play. Miss Landi is aided by the excel lent work of Ralph Bellamy, Neil Hamilton and Myrna Loy. while roles of less importance but Interest to an audience are played by Gilbert Ro land, Walter Walker. Louis Alberni and Charles Grapewin. The produc tion Ls stronger than Miss Landi's last offering here. One most important part of the Fox show is the return of Wesley Eddy, with an enthusiastic welcome, and his numerous songs and instru mental performances were in keeping with his excellent reputation as an entertainer.

Nancy Carroll in New Type Of Role at Metropolitan. T^ANCY CARROLL, cast in a little 1 ’ more w'omanly and less imma ture character than sometimes has fallen to her lot. plays the part of Daisy in ‘ Wayward" at the Metro politan Theater with a fine sense of the fitness of things. Although the well known Carroll verve and fire are a little subdued, they are none the less convincing, and she rises to the emotional demands made in cer tain scenes in a manner made even more impressive by the restraint she has used in general in the play. Richard Arlen, as the mother pecked son and the second husband of Daisy, David Frost, driven to jealousy almost against his will by the insinuations of his mother and the very definite plotting of the man he superseded in Daisy's domestic ife, is forceful and likable, even when most misled. The happy de nouement at the end of the story brought applause from the audience yesterday. Pauline Frederick as Mrs. Frost, mother of David, pictures a too dom inating mother love with strong de lineation. and Bob Litel is satisfac tory in the small but disturbing part he is called upon to play, as Bob Daniels. Other characters In the •story were Margale Gillmore, as Louise Daniels; Burke Clarke, as Uncle Judson: Dorothy Stickney, as a faithful old family servant, Hat tie; Sidney Easton, as George, and Gertiude Michael as Mary Norton, a former sweetheart of David. Las’, but not at all least, is a clever baby girl who plays the part of little Daisy, infant daughter of David and Daisy Frost. The screen play is by Gladys Unger, based on the novel "Wild Beauty," by Nateel Howe Farnham. There are several short films, and the news reel shows pictures in a re view of the Lindbergh baby kidnap ing case. D. C. C. Lew Ayres in Rialto Film. With Clarence Darrow Talk. rPHE Rialto presents two mysteries * of life. One is “Night World,” starring able Lew Ayres—a melodramatic tale of a wealthy youth who drinks his way through speakeasies, try ing to forget that his mother killed his father, until the more limpid flow of a virtuous chorus girl's gaze sets him aright with the world. The other is Clarence Darrow, re nailing the planks in his evolution | platform with a picture full of bugs, beasts and biology, called "The Mys tery of Life.” Undoubtedly “Night World" is the greater mystery. The picture bun dles all proverbial night evils— murdering gangsters, slugging “bouncers," tinsel-necked liquor bot tles and teetering women—into a regular speakeasy potpourri, i Lew Ayres and Mae Clarke, with some really veritable interludes of humanlike love, brighten up a story that becomes a trifle cold-blooded w.:h pumping of bullets into dress shirted men and silk-bodiced women. A particular word of commenda tion should be said for Lew Ayres' drunken interpretation and the hu morous human interest afforded by a philosophizing colored doorkeeper at Happy's night club, where—if I have grasped the moral of this mystery of life aright—no one ever is happy. Supplementary features include a newsreel showing Burgoo King win ning the Kentucky Derby, and a winsome lass interpreting a Tilden tennis lesson by counting his “chops" until she coyly reaarks after the third “chop” that three will be enough for dinner.
