Salacious Notes to Women
Introduced by Defense
To Prove Insanity
WHITE PLAINS, March 18— (.!•>—A
Vivid contrast of a shrivelled old man.
Albert Fish, on trial for the murder
of Grace Budd. writing endearing
letters to his children and sordid, obscene letters to women he did not
know was drawn today before a Supreme court Jury which will decide
on his sanity.
The obscene letters read Into the
record by the defense, seeking to
prove him insane, were those of a
pathological egotist, a house painter
Who depicted himself as a wealthy
motion picture director with an' inMne son.
The prosecution, seeking to prove
Fish was sane when he lured the 10year-old child to an abandoneVl East
Irvington cottage where he choked
her to death and mutilated her body,
Introduced a series of rfathcrly letters written to his children since his
confinement in Eastview penitentiary.
Twice the court was cleared of
women as Fish's salacious letters,
which twice sent him to hospitals for
mental observation, were read into
the record.
Two women, Mrs. George O. Shaw
of Little Neck, who conducted a home
/or invalids, and Mrs. Helen Karlsen,
a Brooklyn widow, in whose house he
once resided, were called to identify
letters they had received from the
defendant.
Four of his children, Mrs. Gertrude
tie Marco, Mrs. Annie Collins, Henry
and John Fish, and his grand-'
daughter, 11-year-old Gloria de
Marco, and his 17-year-old "stepdaughter" by an allegedly bigamous
marriage, Mary Nicholas, of Bartlett,
O., were called to t*U of.the defendant's penchant for inflicting torture
on himself.
- From the lips of his sad-faced
ihildren came almost the same story,

fetlcks and spiked paddles. Even the
little de Marco child had seen him
whip himself with a stick.

Wiley Post's second attempt to cioss the continent from Los Angeles to New York endtd In Cleveland,
when a nearly exhausted oxygen supply forced him to land. The noted around-the-world pilot was attempting to set a new cross country record through the stra tsophere. His plane, the Winnie Mae. is shown shortly
after it had slid to a stop at a Cleveland alrpoit. The landing gear of the plane had been disengaged as the

BRIEF SESSION
Business Hustled Through

To Annual Ball
It happened that St. Patrick's day
was celebrated yesterday in Poughkeepsle, so the Common Council
hustled through its business in 15
minutes flat.
Cue important item before the aldermen was an invnatI6rFtd~"filterrd
the annual St. Patrick's day ball of
the Policemen's Benevolent association in Columbus institute last night.
The Invitation was extended by letter from C. R. Stewart, secretarytreasurer of the association.
"You have about an hour to make
that," A!derman-at-large Luks observed as the aldermen voted to accept the Invitation, The.council president himself appeared in a Tuxedo,
prepared to attend a dinner of the
Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in the
Nelson House.
Several aldermen remarked that
they would like to see the aldermanat-large in a dinner Jacket at all
meetings of the council, but he failed
to fall in with the idea.
The council, also received a letter
from Representative Fish who enclosed a copy of a notation in the
Congressional Record of the council's
resolution endorsing a movement to
make Oct. 11 a holiday in honor of
General Pulaski of Revolutionary war f
fame.

This remarkable picture shows Wiley Post's "Winnie Mae" roaring
skyward in a heavy fog as he began his second attempted substratosphere flight from Los Angeles to New York. The plane"s landing gear,
which he dropped to decrease wind resistance, can be seen as it bounced
on the ground. (Associated Press—Eagle-News Photo).

"I'm too deaf from the roar of the motor to talk". Wiley Post told
MaJ. John Berry, Cleveland airport superintendent, just alTer the noted
.flier landed at the Ohio city. Post attempting a record-breaking transcontinental flight through the stratosphere, was forced to land when it
was discovered that his oxygen supply was dangerously low. Post (right)

In a letter to the Common Council
last night Postmaster Lavery pledged
his co-operation in an effort to have
local labor employed on the job of redecorating the interior of the post
office.
Replying to the council's communication of March 5 in which he was
asked to use his influence on behalf
of local labor in the project to be
undertaken shortly, Mr. Lavery said
he was informed it was the custom of
contractors to use local workers
wherever possible. It Is the practice,
he said, for the contractor to supply
a foreman from his own employees to
supervise the work.
