Alvey Defense Ready
For Condetti Jurors
By JERRY O’LEARY, Jr.
Star Staff Writer
BALTIMORE, Feb. 3.—Defense attorneys at the kidnap
trial of Joseph H. Alvey will launch efforts in Federal Court
here Monday to prove the defendant could not have been the
man who kidnaped and killed 7-year-old Michael Condetti.
As Alvey’s trial enters its second week, defense attorneys will
bring before the jury of 10 men and two women the first of
bring before the Jury of 10 men
and two women the first of
more than 20 defense witnesses.
Baltimore Attorney Bernard
L. Silbert, court-appointed to
assist in Alvey’s defense, has
withdrawn from the case be
cause of the sudden death of
his father. The other attorney,
J. Carl Hill said the father,
former Baltimore Municipal
Court Judge Harry Silbert,
dropped dead in his law of
fices this morning.
Attempts were being made to
night to clear the way with
Judge Thomas for Attorney[
James Smith to replace the I
i younger Silbert as co-counsel
: for the defense. Mr. Hill said [
[he already has discussed the |
mid-trial switch in counsel with'
'Assistant United States Attor
ney Daniel F. McMullen, one
of the prosecutors. The elder
Mr. Silbert is being buried to
morrow.
The hub of the 42-year-old
[defendant’s case will be evi
[dence and testimony intended
to prove that Alvey left the
Washington area by train for
Miami, Fla., on Sunday, No
vember 13, 1960, the day before
Michael disappeared from the
Brentwood Village area of
Northeast Washington where
[he lived. The boy’s sexually
abused and suffocated body
was found three days later in
[a wooded area of Ardmore in
i Prince Georges County, Md.,
more than three miles from his
home.
Accused of Kidnaping
Alvey, a native of Washington
who had lived and worked in
Mount Rainier, Md„ until the
approximate time Michael was
abducted, is accused of kid
naping under the Lindbergh
Law.
i Mr. Hill contends Alvey al
[ ready was in Florida when
Michael left his home, at 2415
Fourteenth street N.E., about
3:30 p.m., November 14, 1960,
and went to look at some book
bags in the nearby Brentwood
Village Shopping Center. The
Government contends Alvey j
spotted the boy in the shopping
center and took him to the
Ardmore area by bus to assault
him.
' The defense attorney said
he expects to introduce evidence
that Michael was kidnaped by
someone else, someone who had
a car. Alvey had no car and
did not know how to drive, he
said.
Mr. Hill said he expects to
place in evidence a moulage
of some tire tracks that were’
found in the soil of a lane lead- [
ing to the secluded spot where [
a hunter discovered Michael’s
nearly nude body on Novem
ber 17, 1960.
He also said he will call to |
the stand Monday a couple
whose home is near the Prince
Georges County line. The cou
ple, Mr. and Mrs. James Crosby,
[ have a “vicious” dog, Mr. Hill
! said, which would have given
i the alarm had anyone at
tempted to walk to the murder
’ scene past the dwelling. Mr.
, Hill said no one could get past
the Crosby dog undetected, as
he himself learned when he
, visited the area shortly before
the trial began.
The Crosbys live at Second
and Brightseat road, Ardmore.
Mr. Hill said he also will at
[ tack United States Attorney
[Joseph D. Tydings’ contention
that Alvey cashed a SSO check
[ in a Mount Rainier liquor store
[on November 14, 1960. The de
fense attorney said Alvey
cashed the check on Sunday,
November 13, a day when liquor
stores may not legally open in
Prince Georges County. Mr.
Hill said Alvey went upstairs to
the apartment of one of the
owners in order to cash the
check.
The Government introduced
testimony that the check was
deposited in the Suburban
Trust Co. by the liquor store
on Monday, November 14,
after banking hours began.
However, there also was testi
mony that the store opened for
business at 6 a.m that day.
Evidence Introduced
j The prosecution has intro
duced evidence that Alvey reg
istered at the Miami Rescue
Mission between 5 p.m. and
midnight on Tuesday, Novem
ber 15, 1960, the day after the
crime was committed.
The defense’s first witnesses
Monday will be:

8 Hours, Found
VICTORIA, British Colum-
bia, Feb. 3 (AP). A ferry. 1

was found early today tangled
in a log boom.

the skipper ran into a log

1:15 a.m. by a search boat.
The ferry left, Preddy Har-;
bor on Thetis Island at 4:45
p.m. yesterday and was to com
plete the six-mile run to
Chemainus in 30 minutes.
Elmer Todd gave a graphic ac

case is expected to go to the
jury after both sides summarize
