HOPEWELL, N.J., May 19.-(/P)-
A possible link between a Brooklyn
school teacher and "Jafsie" bobbed
in and out of the Lindbergh murder
hunt today, as police exhibited an
eagerness to learn more about the
activities of Dean H. Dobson-Pea-
cock, associate of John Hughes
Curtis, hoax -negotiator.
Behind wi ed doors of the Brook-
lyn district attorney's office,, the
officials questioned Mrs. Mary G.
Ford for several hours about a re-
port that she had communicated
several weeks ago with Dr. John F.
Condon, who handled the $50,000
ransom paym/ent for Col. Charles
A. Lindbergh.
Other officers interrogated the
teacher's daughter, Miss Barbara
Ford, whom they located in a Riv-
erside Drive apartment.
Girl and Mother Freed.
Both told substantially the same
story of their contact with the aged
"Jafsie," and later were released.
District Attorney W. F. X. Geo-
ghan said he neither believed nor
disbelieved their explanation, but
would continue the investigation.
Mrs. Ford told her questioners a
story of being in financial straits,
thinking "Jafsie" might be able to
aid her, and appealing to him in
vain for $2,500.
Information supplied by school'
officials started detectives off on
this new clue. They had heard Mrs.
Ford talk to Dr. Condgn by 'tele-"
phone, they said, and knew she was
absent from her duties between
