council and that the fraternity, or,

by this body because of violations

and said that they had not been
made by anyone of official capac-

Parker and Reid started a general
free-for-all that was staged in
front of the press box and drew in
the sport writers, coaches, substi-
tutes and trainers.
Joe Frumkes rose from his sick
bed to score his first goal against
major competition this season by
taking a quickpass from Crossman
in the second period and pounding
the disk past Goalie Clausen for
Michigan's only score.
Reid, Crossman Stopped.
Emmy Reid and Keith Crossman
were stopped for the first time this
year by the best front line Michi-

Tompkins was bewildered for a

Final Attempts Fail.
In the two overtime periods,
Coach Lowrey threw caution to the

NEWARK AIRPORT, Mar. 5-Col. Charles A. Lindberg[
plane was being prepared early today for a flight to an unannout
ed destination.
HARTFORD, Connecticut, Mar. 5-After Henry Johns(
of Englewood, New Jersey, was taken into custody here tonight
connection with the Lindbergh kidnapping case, a special delive
letter and a postcard addressed to the Lindberghs was found in t
Hartford post office. The letter, addressed to Mrs. Charles
Lindbergh, was not opened but sent on to its destination. T
postcard addressed to the Lindberghs at Princeton, New Jersc
said: "Baby still safe; keep things quiet." The J in New Jers
was reversed as in a previous postcard received by Col. Lindber
from East Orange, New Jersey, and similarly the name was spell

HOPEWELL, N.J., March 4.-(AP)-An offer to deal direc
and confidentially with the kidnappers of their blue-eyed young s
was made personally today by Col. and Mrs. Charles A. Lindberg
Just 62 hours after the child was stolen from his sickbed, t
two anxious parents, who have seen a mountain of clues and lea
fade one by one into insignificance, signed their names to a tyl
written statement. It pledged them not "to try to injure in any w
those connected with the return of the child," and to observe fa-
f ully any promise.
The 145-word message to the kidnappers emphasizing that t
Lindbergh's only interest was in the immediate and safe return
their baby boy, made it clear that their willingness to meet a $50,C
ransom demand, had failed to obtain any response.
The appeal, the first to bear1
