Lindbergh Ignores Statement.
As the Curtis statement <«.s read b;
Lamb, Col. Lindbergh was wi iting busU;
at the prosecution table. When Laml
read of "John's" defiant remarks ther
was a murmur of angry disapprove
among the spectators, but Lindbergl
himself did not look up and apparent!
did not even hear what was said.
The statement went on to tell th
way in which Curtis said the kidnaper
told him they stole the baby.
It quoted the kidnapers as tellin;
Curtis on one occasion that the bab
was "all right, except it won't pay at
tention when called."
During the frequent mention of th
murdered baby Col. Lindbergh kep
his head bowed over his writing. Tn
face of Betty Gow, the baby's nurse
remained impassive after one startlei
look of apparent indignation.
Capt. Lamb said this statement wa
completed by Curtis at ρ a.m. May i:
the day after the baby's bcdy was fount
Wanted to Go Along.
Lamb testified that when detective
were assigned to go to Cape May an
Wildwood. N. J., to check up on some c
the details of the statement Curtis ex
pressed a desire to accompany them.
"Can you locate the houses and per
sons you mention in your statement?
Lamb said he asked Curtis.
"I'll try," he quoted Curtis as replying
Other witnesses have told how Curti
did go with the detectives and was un
able to find the kidnapers or the house
where he said he had met them befon
Curtis said in the statement Lam
read that the kidnapers had planne
the kidnaping 35 to 45 days in advanci
that thev entered the nurserv bv a lad
j
downstairs and were let out of the j
house by a member ol the household.
"Had Inside Help."
"They had inside help," Curtis re
, ! ported he had been told.
I Col. Lindbergh and his three ser
■ vants—Betty Gow and Mr. and Mrs.
Ollie Wheatley—heard this evidence i
j with no show of emotion.
Under examination by Harry Stout,
legal veteran whom the defense tried to
ι have ousted from the case before the
' 1 trial opened, Lamb told of Curtis pick
ing a picture from the Newark. N. J.,
rogues gallery as that of "John" of the
kidnap bandl The subject of the pic
ture, he said, was found to be an inmate
of an insane asylum.
Was Allowed to Sleep.
Stout interrogated Lamb as to treat- |
ment of Curtis after the baby was
ι found.
! 1 "Was Curtis allowed to go to bed
when he asked?" he inquired.
"He was granted that privilege," !
' j Lamb replied. "He only expressed a ;
desire once."
Lamb then read a second statement I
by Curtis, which told of the entrance
' into the case of Admiral Guy H. Bur
rage (retired) and Dean H. Dobson
; Peacock.
j In this statement. Curtis said one
of the kidnapers, Olaf Larsen, also
Î known as "Dynamite" or "Din," bore a
strong resemblance to Col. H. Norman
, Schwarzkopf, superintendent of State
; police.
1 "Larsen had dirty brown hair." the
statement read, and Schwarzkopf stared
; at the witness.
Definite Group Suspected.

; closure that police have a definite
, group of men under suspicion as the

might be and whether an arrest was

of the trial. The disclosure came from
' tight-lipped, wary Prank J. Wilson.

! with helping to put A1 Capone behind
bars and who now hunts the baby

* Pressed by Fisher, Wilson refused
1 on the witness stand yesterday to di
vulge the identity of a certain man,
his object being to shield a trail the
; authorities are hotly pursuing.
Declaring Curtis' stories diverted
attention from important clues, the
witness said the "interviewing of a
s certain man at a certain time." fol

s interfered with the apprehension of
'· the gang.

, with others whom we strongly suspect,"
- Wilson exDlained.
would it affect the people he's in touch
with?" asked Harry Stout, attorney
aiding the State.
"I think it would." Wilson answered. <
Curtis' counsel battled hard to drag
the name from Wilson, but he flatly
refused and, after Lindbergh held a
whispered conference with the State
fo.rces, all reference to the mystery *
man was stricken out, the State con- '
senting. 1
