tale of blindfolds and of treatment which drew a pro test from her only when she was served ham sandwiches for the third day in succession was made public today by Brigadier General Daniel Needham

examination inside the station Peggy was home again sleeping Jn her own bed in the 22room McMath house at Harwichport but the mystery of her kidnaping seemed as farfrom solution as ever The girl was found with her father and several other men aboard a boat off Harwichport late yesterday McMath and his business associate William Lee as as bankers and others concerned in the ransoming of Peggy were questioned through Lhc night after Peggy had told her story and had been sent home with Mrs McMalh Needham told Peggys story announced that the ransom had amounted to in currency and made public some details of negotiations for the childs i return But beyond that flatly dcclincci to go Needham told Peggys story and other details shortly before 4 a m and indicated then that he and his men as well

to tell the name of her pet dog which had died The kidnapers agent returned with the name Peter the Great written in Peggys handwriting Needham said That convinced the McMaths that it was safe to negotiate and ransom payment was arranged according to the story But It was evident that police and federal agents were wholly unsatis fied with the situation McMath was insisting upon maintaining a pledge to the kidnapers of 48 hours pro tection it appeared whereas the offi cers felt they should have all in formatioft and thus be enabled to start at once upon the trail Many details of the story

five other Federal agents Friction between the McMaths and the police first became evident Thus day afternoon when McMath asked that all officers be withdrawn from Cape Cod and Needham refused Less
