HOPEWELL, N.J., March 5.-(P)-A belief that kidnappers ofE
chubby-faced Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Jr., will soon restore the
stolen child to his parents was expressed today by master man-
hunters of the east as they sat at a conference with Gov. A. Harry
The governor himself announced the concensus of what he
called "the best brains of the police and law enforcement circles of
the country" as the meeting ended in Trenton and the conferees
started for here.
"There has been no break in the case," Maj. Charles A. Schoef-
fel, deputy superintendent of state police, announced. "No word
has been received directly or indirectly from the kidnappers.''
"Are police out on any new clues?" he was asked.
"They always are," he replied.
Commenting on the arrest and prolonged questioning in Hartford,
Conn., of Henry (Red) Johnson, friend of the nursemaid to the Lind-
bergh baby, Schoeffel said Hartford authorities had been informed the
man was not wanted by New Jersey state police.
Dispels Reports on Nurse.
He also dispelled reports concerning the nursemaid, Miss Betty Gow,
who was subjected to lengthy questioning earlier in the week, by saying:
"That girl's all right."
He said she admitted having "dates" with Johnson prior to the
kidnapping, but that no significance was attached to them.
Meanwhile, in Hartford a county official said the wood used in the
ladder left behind by the kidnappers was similar to the kind used at a
Bronx shipyard frequented by Johnson. The yard is the one in which
Thomas Lamont, New York banker, keeps his yacht. Johnson formerly
was a sailor on this craft..
The county official also expressed the belief a milk bottle cap, found
in the coupe Johnson drove here, was from a New Jersey dairy and was

visited here. It was well known'
by many that the veteran band
director has been in failing
health recently but his sudden
death, the cause of which was
unknown at press time, was to-
tally unexpected by any of his
closest friends.
Sousa's band, which has been
on tour this year, has several
times had to call off appearances
or has had to substitute directors
because of the failing health of
the director.

Formal Pledging to Take Place
Monday Night; Notices to.
Be Sent Tomorrow.
Contrary to rumors current on
campus last night, no freshman
will be notified of his fraternity af-
filiation before Monday. Mail de-
liveries on Monday, both morning
andeafternoonwill bring postcards
telling freshman which of their
fraternity choices has been recip-
rocated on the part of the frater-
nal organization.
The lists sent in by the houses
on Friday and the choices sent in
by the freshman yesterday are be-
ing correlated at the office of the
dean of students today. This task
Those freshmen who were out of
town or for other reasons were un-
able to file their preference list of
fraternities yesterday will be able
to do so tomorrow morning until
noon. After this time no more will
be accepted. No changes may be
made by freshmen on their pref-
erence lists without the special per-
mission of the Judiciary committee
of the Interfraternity Council.
will probably not be completed
much before tonight according to
reports from the dean's office
which indicate that the work of
sorting 400 to 500 names under
various heads will take great time
and patience.
Only one student is being allow-
ed to take part in the work of list-
ing the freshmen, so that the pos-
sibility of one fraternity being fav-
ored at the expense of another will
be eliminated.
Complaints to the interfraternty
council about violations of the rule
which forbids further contact with
freshmen after 8 o'clock Friday
night have been numerous accord-
ing to reports from many parts of
the campus. However, the only way
definite action may be taken a-
gainst offenders is the filing of
written complaints with the inter-
fraternity council, it was stated by
a member of that body.

County Detective Edward J.

Search Room.
They already had questioned a
filling station proprietor who said
he had seen a man, a woman and a
baby in a green car resembling
Johnson's which passed his place
Wednesday afternoon.
In Brooklyn police searched the
room of Fred Johnson, the sailor's
brother with whom the arrested
man had stayed last week. The
brother said the seaman came from
Norway nine years ago, had never
been in trouble, had met Miss Gow
last summer, and was very much
in love with her.
The law enforcement officials
who attended the governor's con-
ference, designed to coordinate the
search for the missing child, came
from as far west as Chicago and
included several representatives of
President Hoover from the depart-
ment of justice.
There was feeling among some of
the officials that an even stronger
offer of immunity than made yes-
terday by the Lindbergh's should
be issued.
While they were discussing the
case behind closed doors, the lad-
der the kidnappers used was sent
for and taken into the conference
room. Later a number of the con-
ferees came to the Lindbergh es-
tate to inspect the scene of the

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, March 5.
-(P)-James DeJute, 11-year-old
Niles, Ohio, boy who was kidnapped
while on his way to school early
Wednesday morning, was recover-
ed this morning in a house about
seven miles from Niles.
Two men who police said they
thought were the kidnappers were
captured by a posse of six officers.
The men were booked at the coun-
ty jail in Warren as John de Mar-
co, 30, and Dowell. Hargraves, 27,
both of Youngstown.
Authorities said the boy was re-
covered in a gambling house.
The finding of the boy came
when it was feared he might have
been slain. The federal bureau of
investigation also had stepped into
the investigation.

A large number of the 11,000 reg-
istered voters of Ann Arbor will go
to the polls tomorrow to decide
whether Ann Arbor shall have a
municipal court, to elect its judge,
and to select supervisors, aldermen
and constables for various wards
throughout the city.
The feature of the primary elec-
tion is the municipal court propos-
al, which has bebn a center of in-
terest since last December. The
amendment to be voted upon pro-
vides for a municipal court presid-
ed over by a municipal judge who
shall have a term of office of six
years, and a salary range of from
$4,000 to $6,000. The two offices of
justice of the peace now serving
the purpose for which the court is
designed, would be abolished. The
court is to have jurisdiction up to
amounts of $500.
Four Seek Bench.
Four candidates have offered
themselves for the position of mu-
nicipal judge. They are Frank C.
Cole, Bert E..Fry, Harry W. Read-
ing and Jay H. Payne.
The latter two candidates are
justices of the peace at present,
Mr. Payne's office being in the
county building and Mr. Reading's
in the city hall. Both are graduates
of the University law school and
have engaged in the practice of
law in Ann Arbor. Mr. Fry and Mr.
Cole, both also Michigan law grad-
uates, are at present practicing at-
torneys. Mr. Fry has served four
years as justiceof the peace, while
Mr. Cole has been circuit court
commissioner and clerk of Ann Ar-
bor township.

Of the twenty-odd ward offices
to be filled, only six are to be con-
tested. The high point will be
reached in the third ward where
Fred J. Williams, Leigh Thomas,
and William S. Housel compete for
the Republican aldermanic nom-
ination. The Republicans also have
an alderman's contest in the sev-
enth ward and a supervisor's con-
test in the fifth, while more than
one Democrat seeks his party's
nomination for alderman in the
second and third wards and for
constable in the fourth.

Hockey Team by
1-0 Score.
By John W. Thomas.
The spectacular, fast skating sex-
tet from Minneapolis determined
their hockey supremacy last night
by humbling Michigan, 1-0, before
a frenzied capacity attendance.
From the first moment of play to
the final gun, thrills and brilliant
individual efforts kept the fans at
a high pitch.
The series drew more than 3,500
hockey fans with about 200 turned
away from the turnstiles. Although
the seating capacity is only 1,300,
more than 900 were jammed into
the available standing space, About
1,700 saw the second match last
night while 1,800 witnessed the
first one.
Minnesota divided their team in-
to three front lines and from the
first it was evident that Michigan
would be forced to play a defensive
game. After three-fourths of the
first period had elapsed, Tompkins
stopped a shot and hit it out to the
red line. Todd immediately pound-
ed it back and it went past Mich-
igan's Captain for the only tally of
the match.
With only seven minutes to play
in the last period, Coach Lowrey
again juggled his team so that four
forwards and one defenseman were
playing for the Wolverines but
they could not score.
MacInnis again stood out with
his speed and continued aggres-
siveness. Goalie Clausen had more
work last night than Tompkins as
he pushed aside 19 shots while
Michigan's ace saved 17. Several
fights started but failed to mater-
ialize into free-for-all, as Referee
Foxx ruled the disputes with severe
Parker crashed into the boards
behind Michigan's net and dislo-
cated his shoulder. Later in the
same third session, Crossman shot
a long one from center ice and
struck LaBatte above the eye. He
suffered two cuts around his eye
and two small bones were displaced
in his nose.
