New Jersey Acts Following Story Printed in Liberty Dr. Condon Had Said Flatly That Hauptmann Had a Confederate GOV. HOFFMAN ACTS 'Condon Should Tell What He Knows to Authorities,' Says Governor TRENTON, N. J.—(Copyright Associated Press)—Governor ..Harold G. Hoffman Saturday sought the arrest "for questioning" of the Lindbergh case's famous "Jafsie" (Dr. John F. Condon), as the Court of Pardons went into session to hear Bruno Richard Hauptmann's plea to escape the electric chair. Condon sailed suddenly Friday night for South America after beginning publication of "Jafsie Tells All," a series' of articles by Dr. Condon purporting to offer new details of the case, including his belief that Hauptmann had a confederate. "Condon makes the flat statement that more than one person was involved in the pltn. If Condon knows these things I feel authorities should have the information," the governor said in ordering the arrest. Liberty Magazine Dr. Condon's series, "Jafsie Tells All!" started in the current issue of Liberty magazine, dated January 18. "Interests" Flayed by Asserts Certain Small, Powerful Cliques Are Fighting the Farnier WASHINGTON — (Copyright Associated Press) — A hurry call to a soil conservation wizard to speed across the continent and sit in at the big farm parley here gave a new hint Saturday of what the AAA's successor may be like. It was learned that Howard R. Tolley, described by theadministration as "the foremost agricultural economist in the United States," has been called from the West Coast to attend Secretary Wallace's farm conference. Wallace Angry WASHINGTON—In Secretary Wallace's office Friday the farmers were told that improvement in conditions since 1933 has made the gravity of the present emergency caused by the court's ruling "more ominous." The .secretary assailed "special interests" which, he said, "would be delighted to give six-cent cotton, 30- cent wheat, five-cent lard, eight-cent tobacco to foreign nations." "I believe all fair-minded men regardless of region or political party know that farm welfare must be preserved." he said. "Only a small mi- nortiy of the thoughtless hailed the recent supreme court decision as meaning thai the federal government no longer can be concerned with the/ economic welfare of agriculture in the United States. "The time has come for those who believe that the balanced welfare of. agriculture is essential to the general welfare to speak plainly about obstructionists. "I am sure that most business men and consumers are friendly t> the farmer, but there are certain small but powerful cliques which have steadily fought all efforts on tin- P'lrt of this government and preceding governments to extend even a modest aid lo agriculture. "i'-onie of these obstructionists to the. agricultural welfare, as it relate.- to the general welfare, hope and believe !he recent dccUi.m means the end ef •ill effective governmental hue-rest ill ihe farm preblom. Others ,uv willing !•) buy the fsinners off temporarily wilh unsound measures. A familiar method of the opposition is to split the farm groups among themselves."
