price of agricultural pro ducts to a level with the price of products the farmer purchased or that other products must come down to a level with the price of farm produce Nothing was done by congress

Hoover Can Be No Ketreai The farm movement fought on however until in March 1933 a con ference of agricultural leaders called hy Agriculture Secretary Wallace formulated the AAA This time the

Governor Hoffmans office mean while made public photostat copies of two manuscript letters one signed J F C and the other Dr John F Condon with the comment These letters are particularly sig nificant in that they reveal the pe culiar workings of the mans mind It has been Governor Hoffmans contention that Dr Condon now on a southern cruise would be ques tioned further with the idea of his adding clarification to the Lindbergh case Letters Are TCevrnled One of the Condon letters which was undated read 2974 Decatur Ave Bronx N Y C My dear Mr Your note dated Oct 16 1933 did not reach me until

with wagons but they bogged down so we went into the woods on foot said M E Davis onu of the first to reach the scene Find Bits of Canvas About three miles cast of Good win we began to find bits of canvas on the ground then pieces of metal and we were on the right trail We followed these clews and saw where the trees had been torn up and we picked up bits of plane for a distance of 300 yards before we came to the wreck itself It was slow going in boggy ground much of it covered four or five feet deep with swamp water I say we reached the wreckage but what it amounted to was find ing the larger pieces of the plane with our flashlights The wings were gone torn to pieces the motors were there in the mud but buried in the ground Scattered All Over The plane and the Bodies wcrp scattered all over the place most of the bodies being near the motors It looked to me that the plane had come down and levelled off at he trcetops then got into the trees and kept right on going as long as it could through the trees I do not believe it would be pos sible to identify definitely more than three or four of the dead I understand there was a child on the ship I found the childs shoes near the motors but not the body Baggage and Mail There was baggage and mail scattered all over the place The cabin of the plane was gone just one side wall standing Two bodies near the motors looked like they might have been the pilots The Southerner was headed for Little Rock with its 14 passengers two pilots and stewardess in good weather and apparently was in good mechanical shape Radio communi cation between the plane and its ground stations was maintained un til four or five minutes before the estimated time of the crash The last report was an all well sent from 3000 feet at The bodies were scattered for more than 300 yards through the swamp which was difficult of ac cess Torn to Pieces The plane was literally torn to pieces its luxurious cabin ripped apart the wings sheared off as it smashed madly through the trees Many of the bodies that lay in the swamp were mangled beyond recog nition The plane left Newark N J yes terday afternoon bound for Los Angeles Gerald V Marshall 40
