Body Not Lindy Babe’s, Claimed
Body Found Taller

Embalmed, Claims
TRENTON, N. J.. Feb. tl.—
A writ of error which will stay the
execution of Bruno Richard
Hauptmann, condemned to die the
week of March 18 for his convic
tion of the Lindbergh baby killing,
was filed Thursday with the Court
of Errors and Appeals, the state's
highest tribunal.
NEW YORK. Feb. 21 —fJP)— A
former defense Investigator said
Thursday counsel for Bruno Haupt
mann had ignored evidence that
the body in the murder case could
not have been that of the Lindbergh
Seven autopsy experts were readv
to show, declared George H. Foster,
that the body found five miles from
Hopewell. N. J.. and identified by
Col. Charles A. Lindbergh as that of
his son. in reality was:
(1) More than four inches taller
than Charles Lindbergh. Jr.;

have been possible in the mild
weather after the kidnaping, and
(3) Embalmed.
Aide of Faucet!
Foster is chief investigator for
James M. Fawcett, who was replac
ed as Hauptmann's counsel before
the trial.
His assertion came as the pres
ent defense staff prepared to gath
er in Trenton for a conference on
their disagreement over appeal pro
cedure. This was understood to be
due in part to the failure of Edward
J Reilly, chief counsel, to attack the
state's identification of the body

Congressional Group
Approves Plan; New
Depth to Compare
With Houston
The Board of Army Engineer* has
been Instructed by the Riven and
Harbors committee of the house of
representative* to make a survey of
the Brownsville ship channel and
turning basin with a view to de
termining the advisability of SO feet
of water for the Brownsville port.
The request for the survey was pre
sented to the committee by Con
gressman Milton H. West.
Information to this effect waa
received in Brownsville Thursday
morning In a telegram from Con
gressman West to J. O. Fernand**,
secretary of the Browrtfcville Naviga
tion commission.
In his telegram the congressman
stated that he had requested the
Board of Army Engineer* to
expedite the survey so that the
necessary appropriation for dredg
ing the channel and turning
basin to the 30-foot depth may be
included In the next River* and
Harbors bill.
Would Cost 5500,000
The additional ftve feet of dredg
ing will require approximately 1500,
000. according to Captain A. L. Lane
of the armv encheers, engineer on
the Brownsville project. Near
ly 5 000 000 cubic feet of dirt would
have to be moved, according to
Captain Lane’s figures
Order for the survey was charac
terized by Captain Lane as “good
news”, and not entirely unexpect
ed "Now is the time to make the
survev and dredge the additional
five feet to give a 30 foot channel."
the army engineer told The Herald.
"With the two dredges already her*
and In operation, the cost wtH be
cut down considerably "
Mr Fernandez was delighted over
the news of the survey, and express
ed confidence that the recommen
dations of the Board of Army En
gineers will be favorable to the In
creased depth.
While in Washington recently Mr.
Fernandez and Congressman Weal
conferred with Congressman Mans
field. chairman of the Rivera and
Harbors committee, relative to the
survey. At that time Judge Mans
field expressed himself as favorable
to the survey and stated his belief
that the committee would look on
the project with favor.
Government Would Pay
In event the 30 foot depth la ap
proved. the entire cost of the addi
tional dredging will be borne by
the government, and the Browns
ville port will have a* much water
as Houston and other large sea
port*. The 30 foot depth would re
sult in additional ships calling here,
and would enable fully loaded oil
tankers and other large ship* to
make the local port without trou
Very little time will be required
to make the survey ordered by the
Rivers and Harbors committee, ac
cording to Captain Lane, who stated
that practically all of the data la
available right now. It might be
necessary to do some additional
work, but not much. Captain Lane
stated No notice of the survey hae
been received by his offioe, the
army engineer said.
