MQfi BIGHT «-i..•-», „...,.. ._„.. TUB PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pattipft, Texfta THURSDAY EVENING!, JANUARY 10, 1986 CONDON (Continued Jrotn oaee 1.) lunch at 13:31 p. m., Reilly brough ft #6man forward in the court room and tisked Condon if he knew her fief flame was given as Mrs. Kore Srid Jafsie remembered her only a « fcxjmah who came to his hous IWth another named Mrs. Busch. Re'llly heid up two letters, an tufted Jafsie if he did not show them to Mrs. Busch and tell he they were in the handwriting o the kidnapers. "No, 1 did not," he declared. "Didn't you tell them you knew the kidnapers were four in name? "I don't remember." **And before the session's end wa reached Reilly shot at Jafsie a query about a purported transfe as principal of a public school in 1802 because "of conduct unbecom ing a gentleman with a woman teacher." "No, sir," Dr. Condon snapped. WHentx Objects Attorney General David T. Wil- entz charged Reilly was attempting to assassinate Dr. Condon't character "by Inference." During the luncheon recess defense attorneys said they would demand of the state that it produce ah allegedly missing note. The defense charged a note was sent to Jnfsle by the kidnaper along with the sleeping suit of the baby which was returned for proof of possession. "That note has never been produced by the state and we are asking why?" said Frederick H. Pope of the defense staff. "There are no notes missing," declared Attorney General Wilentz. Hollow Cough Rellly pounded again on the "hollow cough" that the mysterious "John" had when he sat on a park bench with Condon for an hour to discuss the ransom. The defense may contend that Condon talked, not to Hauptmann, but to Isador Fisch who died of tuberculosis in Germany. Hauptmann has claimed that Lindbergh ransom money found in his possession was given him by Fisch for safekeeping. Dr. Condon readily admitted that he told his neighbors he was the "Jafsie" of the Lindbergh ransom advertisements. The defense attorney went back and fcrth over his story, looked for any possible loophole in the details, for something with which to attack Jafsie's credibility. : The business became grimmer than before. Today, there was no laughter when the educator de- rjianded the attorney "speak English." For the attorney returned: "I can't speak baby talk for you, doctor." •i When the attorney contended it was unusual for a man to be climbing out of a cemetery at night and demanded: "Did you ever climb out of a graveyard at night," the answer was: "I've never been in one at riight." And the result cat Justice Thomas W. Trenchard to bring down his gavel to stop the laughter. ' Cough Described. Reilly's first questions of the day of significance pertained to the "hol(ow cough" of the man known as "John." He wanted to know if it was a hard cough, a soft cough, its. exact nature. "EHd the cough appear to come front his lungs?" "Yes, sir, that's it." Tha defense is expected to contend that the man known as "John" was Isador .Fisch, who died of tuberculosis in Germany. Hauptmann, when he was arrested with Lindbergh ransom money in his possession, cfaimed Fisch had given it to him for safekeeping. •. Condon said "John" who "is Bruno Hauptmann," coughed when the two of them sat on a bench at night in Van Cortlandt park, the Bronx, to arrange for the ransom payment. Corrects His Grammar. The defense counsel made Jafsie demonstrate his description of "John's" action in pulling up his coat lapels to cover his face during the ransom interview, and this it was exepected was with a view to showing that identification of Hauptmann was faulty, that Jafsie did not actually see "John's" face. The elderly educator carried out every request, but one. He would not put On a soft brown hat. "I wear a derby!" he declared. Dr. Condon was less of the actor on the stand today, grimmer, but his wit still was with him and he pierced any opening he could find in Reilly's armor. Once he corrected the attorney's grammar. Among the scenes of the day was Reilly swinging an arm, as a compass, to indicate direction, and Jaf- Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury at 'Trial of Century* A. There was, there were some bushes which have since been removed. Q. Did the guard give any alarm? A. No alarm. "While talking to him (John) I lenrd a noise," Dr. Condon said. Q. Did you see the guard? A. Yes. Q. Describe him. Crowd Laughs A. He was real—of German ex- .raction, I mean, rather stour, I vould call him a heavyweight. Q. It's rather unusual is it not or a man to be climbing out of ihe cemetery at night? A. I don't think so. Q. Did you ever climb out of a »rave yard at night, Doctor? A. I've never been in one at light. The quick sally provoked a gale >f laughter. Reilly returned to the man who scaled the cemetery fence and fled oward Van Cortland Park. Q. Did he run fast? A. Yes. Q. How far did the man run be- ore you caught up with him? A. Almost 100 yards. Q. You caught hold of him? A. Yes, I took him by the left arm and escorted him back to a hack. Q. Where was Al Reich then? A. In the car. Ccu»ht!d Once Q. And I believe you said that as )u were sitting there you heard a cough? A. Yes. Q. A hard cough? A. No. Q. A soft cough? A. No. Q. Did ib': cougli appear to come rom his lungs? A. Yes sir, that's it. Q. And yru suggested that he ake something for the cough? A. No, I said I'd BO bo a drug- tore and get him ssme medicine. Q. You'd go to the drug store ind get medicine while he waited or you? A. No, he would have gone along We didn't go, however. <""• "'hat would you get for his ough? Dr. Oondon mentioned several emedies which he employed in raining athletes. "How long were you sitting lerc." asked Iteilly, after Jafsie elated how li? r ; .at and talked with ohn in th° inrk. "About an hour ;md ten minutes." Q. And he ;,::ughccl only once A. Yes, once. Refuses To Don Hat Reilly ther. directed Jafsie to emonstrate how John had his coat ollar up to his chin, and the doc- or obligingly showed the jury how ohn hunched down with his coat ollar turned up. He balked however when Reilly /anted, him to don a brown felt at to complete the picture. Q. Will th's hat fit you? A. I wouldn't put it on, but I can el! you docking at the hatband). Q. Have you a soft hat with you oday' A. Ha, I wear a derby. Jafs.b at this particular part of >e testimony gave Reilly a little liglish lesson, correcting his ques- ion so it would be grammatical. Reilly turned the questioning sie shouting: WhOa!" "More, more, there! :Then another time, when Jafsie waa -• redescrtblng how "J'ohn" t.iinbed a cemetery gate "Turner lasljion,"'he said, "You can always tell-a palooka—" ;"A iwhat?" the attorney wanted to know. : "I don't know the meaning of the word," returned the educator, "they 0411 It a 'palooka' if he does not act with grace." 'Examining him about the sleeping suit which "John" returned to the Lindberghs through Jafsie to "ijirpve" possession of the baby, RejUy asked him if he ever bought eiich sleeping suits, and Jafsie came tick: "That is the woman's work." ,Reilly bore down on that part of Opndon's story in which he said "John" tpld him he was a Scandinavian, but he could not get the Bronx man to say that he had told ethers the man was a Scandinavian. ."I said that he said he was a Scandinavian—many times.1 Jaf- sie told him. Nor would. Jafsie acknowledge the counselor's implication that he told persons the man he talked to as "John' 1 lia<J a scar on his face. •"NeverI" be said. i back to John. ^. How many times did he say he was a Scandinavian? A. Once. Q. Did you ever say the man you talked to had a scar on his face? Saw No Scar »sV?ed it he had seen guards aljout the cemetery. "Yes, J saw one near 233rd St. fSe the gate," he said. . Where ^WW the guard when th^.map'wese coming up over the fwwe? A. About 3Q feet away, near a .«• ?&»? . tfte nothing between Q. Who left first? A. I did. uai^iu uien narrated how he walked from the park to the car nearby where Reich, his companion and bodyguard waited. There was very little banter during Reilly's cross-examination in the morning. "Jafsie," too, was grim but not so dramatic as yesterday. He was pretty much an old, hardheaded, but sentimental school teacher who had been mixed up in a mystery drama. Ccndon said that Reich drove him home after the Woodlawn cemetery episode. Q. Do you know what this is? A. Yes, that is the envelope—the package—in which the sleeping suit was mailed to me. Q. Who actually received it? A. I did. GI. Where did it come from? A. In the mail. Q. Is that the first communication you received? A. Where? Q. In the mail? A. You mean in my life. No sir. Not the first. "What station did that come from?" Rellly asked, motioning to Condon to look at the postmark on the envelope. Can't See Stamps Long and earnestly Jafsie peered at the cancelled stamps and finally confessed, "The stamps are so CJlmWng? blurred I cannot see," THIS CURIOUS WORLD BFye William Ferguson MAKE UP ONE FOURTH OF OUR.

INC. WATERMELONS ARE PRODUCED POC. THEIE. \A/AT£fZ, IN CHALDEA. THE tar pits of La Brea have yielded the largest collection of Pleistocene animals in the world. The area of the pits is about 25 acres, and the tarry substance contained therein has acted as a preservative for the skeletons. Q. Two notes came in the package? A. The two notes were wrapped inside the sleeping suit. Q. What did you do with the notes? A. I took them out of the sleeping suit and read them. One was addressed to Col. Lindbergh and one to me. I sent for Col. Lindbergh to come and see if the article I received was his baby's sleeping suit. There was delay as counsel hunted for a ransom note exhibit, and Justice Trenchard, looking almost as much like Jafsie as Jafsie himself, took a hand in examining the witness. Date Placed He asked the .doctor to place the date the sleeping suit was received. Jafsie said he placed the date on or about March 17th (St. Patrick's Day) "because that's a great day in my life." After that interlude Reilly returned to the attack. Q. Ever buy one of these (sleeping) suits, Doctor? A. Nfcver, Didn't need them. Q. Never bought any? A. No. Q. When your children were growing up, did .you buy any of these? A. That's the woman's part of the household. Reilly produced another letter dated March 19th. Condon examined it carefully for several minutes and- looked up to say: "Yes sir, I received that letter." He said that on the day he re- ;eived the letter, he had consulted with Col. Breckenridge. Reilly then brought out still another of the state's ransom documents, and, as before, Dr. Condon looked at it long and intently, ;urning it over and over. Box Arouses Reilly. This note was postmarked April 1. Q. Did you acquaint Col. Lindbergh of the contents of the note? A. No. I asked Col. Breckenridge to help in this matter. Breckenridge was staying at th» Condon home, Jafsie voluteered. The note directed Jafsie to have the ransom money ready for payment the following night,' April 2. Q. Then on Saturday the money came to you? A. Yes on April 2nd. Q. How many people in your group knew it? A. What do you mean by group? Q. You, Col. Lindbergh, Col. Breckenrdige—? A. The three of us. Q. Al Reich didn't know it? A. You'll have to ask him about that. I didn't tell him. I don't tell my business to anyone. Q. Who made the box (in which the money was placed) 1 A. I planned the making of the box. A. Yes. Q. Then they planned it? A. They suggested it. Jafsie Fumbles "Who made the box?" Reilly repeated. 'Jafsie" heretofore never at a loss for an answer, fumbled. Reilly almost leaped it him. Q. Who made the box? A. I can't remember the name. A wood worker on Webster Ave. near 190th St. I'd recall his name if it were mentioned. "You had a box made," shouted Reilly, "and you don't know who made it? Wilentz popped up to object to Reilly's manner. 'Don't shout, don't shout," said Jafsie. "I can hear. I'm not deaf. I can hear every syllable you utter if you use your lips, don't shout." Reilly waited to know who instructed him to have the box built. Q. Who were the orders from, from the chief? A. No. Col. Lindbergh and Col. Breckenridge. It cost $3.25 and was built according to his own plans, he went on, because he wanted to be able to recognize It if he ever saw it again. There were 5 layers of wood in the box to make it distinctive, Jaf- sie related. Recess of five minutes was taken at 11:20 a. m. at Wilentz' request. Reilly took up the story of Col Lindbergh's futile' airplane trip to Gay Head in search for the "Boad Nellie" on which the kidnap note said the baby was held. A question about how good the visibility was for the plane flight caused the little interchange. Condon requested: Reilly Hits Back "Will you please speak better English?" It was a demand that caused the court to rock with laughter yesterday.' Today the court 0ld not laugh. There was only Reilly's curt,, whip- like. "Do you want me to talk baby talk? I can't talk baby talk, Doctor." Bit by bit Reilly led Jafsie thru a detailed description of that search of the waters near Gay Head, Cuttyhunk and Woods Hole, Mass. The plane loaded at Hlcksville at about 6:30 p. m. that day, Sunday, April 3rd, Jafsie said. Q. Did you ever go out on a plane after tha/t in connection with this case? A. No. Q. There were some insertions of advertisements after that? A. Oh, yes. Q. You never received any ransom notes after that, the payment of the ransom. A. No, not with the signature. Jafsie said he had received "lots" of notes aftey that, put none with Twelve men and women bearing names rooted in the American tradition have pledged open-minded consideration of the evidence in the trial of the German carpenter, Bruno Hauptmann, on cliarg-es of murdering Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr. Here they are, seated 1 in the jury box in the court room at.

Was there any conference at your shack at City Island subsequently. Gang Mentioned A. No. 'Q. You went to City Island on week ends? A. Yes, sir, I did. Q. With whom did you talk on City Island? A. With my neighbors . . . people I hav known 35 years. Q. Did you ever tell your neighbors on City Island 'that you believed the baby was kidnaped by a gang? A. I can't recall now. Q. Did you tell anybody you were the "Jafsic" of the nd? A. Yes, everybody. Q. You never made any record of your conversations with reference to the case? A. No. Q. And now you are depending on your memory in 1035 for something that happened in 1932? Q. Did you nver say a woman took part in the kidnaping? A. No. Q. Do you remember telling newspapermen in the office of Attorney McLaughlin in the Bronx that you knew the abductors? A. "I don't recollect." Reilly then shifted his Hue of attack. Q. Did you ever go out in a boat in connection with this case? Blindfolded. Not Blindfolded A. On a boat yes. But not blindfolded. Dr. Condon told Reilly he had been asked to go bv steamer to Brocktyjn, Mass,, w\th la Samuel Leon and Leon's friend. Q. Did you ever stand on the deck of a boat in which you believed the baby was hidden below the decks? A. No. Reilly then swung to trips Condon made to Proggs Neck in his row boat in connection with the case. On one such trip he described how he saw a boat on which a man named "Coal Barge John" and another person were visible. Q. You went out to that boat believing those men were the kidnapers? A. No. Reilly interjected a new note in the case when he demanded Condon state whether or not he had ever said "the child's body was brought back to the spot where it was found." He was trying to establish Condon had told that to a "Marcus Griffin of the New York Inquirer" in New York. Jafsie said he had no memory of the incident. Reilly changed his course to inquire if after Hauptmann's arrest he asked a detective for pictures of Hauptmann so' he might study them, requesting the detective to tell no one of giving him the photos. Condon made indignant denial of this. Q. I want the exact date of the month when you saw Hauptmann in the Bronx last August. A. I don't remember. Q. It is your sworn testimony then that you made no effort to capture the man to whom you say you gave $50,000, "tlie man who double-crossed you on the ransom? A. I didn't say that. Q. You didn't shout to the driver to run him down? A. No, it would be Impossible to do that. There was so much traffic. Another Dead Man Reilly suddenly asked Jafsie "do you recall a detective investigator by the name of Val O'Parrell." "Never , saw him. Died, I believe." Reilly showed him a picture of O'Parrell. "Never saw him in my life." Q. He's dead of course. A. Yes, but it's the truth just the same. Q. Did you ever know Mrs. Jay? A. No, sir. Q. Do you know Captain Bernard Eels? A. The name Capt. Eels is familiar. I don't remember the Bernard, though. Jafsle said he knew Capt. Eels at Woods Hole, Reilly showed him two letters. Q. Did you receive this letter? Letters Introduced Condon glanced at it and then turned a scornful look on the lawyer. He read it for n full minute and said "Yes, I received it." Q. When? A. In about November. 1932. The letters were accepted In evidence. Reilly then Jumped to another angle. Q. Do you recall two women calling on you nt your home during the ransom negotiations? A. There were hundreds of them. Reilly then asked a woman named Mrs. Pertain to stand up and come over to the witness stand for Condon to Identify. Jafsie Identified her as one with a companion named Mrs. Busch. Q. Didn't you give Mrs. Busch these letters (referring to the previous exhibits) and tell them they were in (he handwriting of the kidnapers? A. No I did not. Q. Didn't you tell them you knew the kidnapers werr four in name? A. I don't remember. Reillv asked If Mrs. Busch had mot identified herself ns a native of Flemington, by exhibiting bank checks. A. I don't remember exactly. "Ja.fsie" said that the woman had told him she had bought two farm plots near Hopewell. one of which she hoped to work herself. Wilentz demanded that the letters be read to the jury. "The contents are not so important," Reilly replied, "it's the handwriting. I will not have the letters read." Counsel then agreed that the contents had no reference to the Lindbergh case, but were introduced for handwriting evidence by the defense. Reilly started to ask If Dr. Condon had been transferred from a public school where he had been principal in 1902 because of "conduct unbecoming a gentleman with a woman teacher." "No sir," snapped Condon while Wilentz objected. The '"first point which Attorney General David T. Wilentz sought to clear up after getting Jafsie back as a witness was his contradictory testimony, given under cross-exam- ir,'atima, abput the Sealed letter which he received for Colonel Lindbergh from the kidnaper. Dr. Condon had said he did not break the seal, yet he went on to tell how he described the symbols in the letter to Lindbergh over the telephone. He told Wilentz he had been confused and that his testimony was in ei-ror. He said he called the Lindbergh home on the basis of an unsigned note and was Instructed over the phone to open the sealed letter. He then read the letter to the person to whom he talked. McCraw to Take Book' To Texas Oil Field KTLGORK, Jan. 10. (If) — The state's "rule book" will be brought to the East Texas oil fields to con- l production of oil, William Mc- Oraw. Texas' new attorney-general has promised. "We are going to have the rule book down here (East Texas) and that's what we're going by," McCraw said here yesterday after attending his first open tender meeting. "There are lots of good courts hi East Texas and I have lots of lawyers," said the attorney general. "I have just one ambition—to make a good attorney general. I picked Merton Harris (assistant in charge of oil violations in East Texas) because he is big, tough, and smart." McCraw heard E. N. Stanley, chief agent of the Texas railroad commission in East Texas, predict the best condition in the field's history by Saturday night. LITICS BY BYRON PRICE (Chief of Bureau, The Associated Press, Washington) Despite all forecasts, it remained fcr the opening days of the new congress to reveal the full measure of the democratic dominance on capitol hill. The sweeping power of the party chieftains was demonstrated swiftly and with emphasis in the expedition with which senate and house were organized, the readiness with which the majority accepted and adopted as its own the recommendations of President Roosevelt, and the manner in which the legislative machinery was set into motion to translate those recommendations into law. A large party majority Is not always a powerful majority. No one can foresee whether the present democratic majority in congress will remain powerful and effective throughout the coming session, or will break into hopeless blocs. The one certain thing, however, is that at this moment the democratic organization has a degree of control which even some of its most optimistic leaders never expected. Follow F. D. H.'s Leadership Several causes have contributed to this situation, giving the party a dominance even greater than that represented by the mere fact of its overwhelming majorities in senate and house.
