that the handwriting In these vari
ous exhibits is by the same person,”
testified Mr. Sellers, who served two
years as president of the Academy
of Criminology. Mr. Sellers was an
expert witness in the Bruno Haupt
mann-Lindbergh kidnaping murder
case, as well as scores of others.
Mr. Sellers, who was to be cross
examined today by Gollum’s at
torneys, testified that handwriting
samples which Sheriff's Capt. Tom
McGaff testified he induced Gollum1
to make on foolscap showed con
clusively that the writing was iden
tical with that on the dynamite re
ceipt issued March 14, the day be
fore the Overell yacht blew up ir
Newport harbor. The name signeti
on the dynamite receipt was " R. L
Standish by Robert Comstock.”

Prosecution to Close Case
Against Hirshberg Today
By tHe Associated Press
NEW YORK. July 31.—The prose
cution in the court-martial trial of
Navy Chief Signalman Harold E.
Hirshberg, 29, plans to conclude its
case today against the Pacific war
veteran who is charged with mal
treating fellow prisoners In Japa
nese prison camps.
Lt. Comdr. John J. O’Neil, Hirsh
berg’s defense counsel, said he ex
pected to finish in time for sum
mations by both sides next Friday.
Hirshberg has pleaded innocent
on nine specifications charging him
with having beaten fellow prisoners
and with having informed on Pvt.
George Garrett of Waco, Texa*. a
fellow prisoner who subsequently
was killed.
The court martial was told yester
day that Pvt. Garrett was bayoneted
to death in a Japanese prison camp
because he reported a Japanese
guard's theft of prisoners’ food and
not because Hirshberg ^etrayed his
plans to escape.
