Bruce RapsAlcatraz Method

College Roundup




Investigating Alcatraz Prison
a "forbidden act" in the eyes of
the Justice Department, accord-
ing to J. Campbell Bruce, author
of "Escape from Alcatraz."
"However, after overcoming the
obstacles of Washington bureauc-
racy, I discovered a Devil's Is-
land in San Francisco's front
yard," he said.
"In a way, researching Alca-
traz was something like shoot-
ing dice. It was a game of chance
in which I was almost forced to
give up when Washington officials
refused to cooperate," he said.
He related that on one occa-
sion, the director of the Bureau
of Federal Prisons suggested that
he drop the Alcatraz idea and
write a book on another, lesser-
known penal institution.
"It was a futile assault on a
bastdon of bureaucracy," Bruce
"I asked myself why the Jus-
tice Department kept Alcatraz'
files shrouded in secrecy. The an-
swer was obvious; the deplorable
conditions of the prison."
The "super-prison" of the world,
Bruce charged, practiced "rank
racial segregation" within its walls
before it was closed,
Also, this prison, famed for its
"hardened and unredeemable con-1

victs," harbored such law offend-
ers as Kentucky moonshiners, a
youth who stole a pig and tax
evaders, he said.
Bruce further charged that, "Al-
catraz was run by men too in-
competent to run a backwoods
Bruce began writing his book
immediately after the 1962 escape
from Alcatraz of three convicts,
one of whom had an IQ of 133.
Other Book
The only other book written on
the prison was done so by a for-
mer Alcatraz warden in 1948 who,
according to Bruce, made the is-
land sound like an "Alcatraz Hil-
He said that he asked permis-
sion from the prison bureau to
visit the island, interview the war-
den and guards and speak with
several of the inmates. However,
Bruce said that none of his re-
quests were granted and so he
had to rely on his own "resource-
fulness" for the story.
Tight Lips
Bruce claimed that it was be-
cause of Alcatraz officials' re-
luctance to give information on
the 1962 escape that he and other
reporters became suspicious.
"When reporters asked to see
the spoons with which the con-
victs were supposed to have dug
through the walls, officials refus-

Benjamin Franklin (or The Louisville Slugger, as he is better
known as) said, "A penny saved is a penny earned," and we,
the college population of America, have taken to heart this sage
advice. We spend prudently; we budget diligently. Yet, despite
our wise precautions, we are always running short. Why? Be-
cause there is one item of expense that we consistently under-
estimate-the cost of travelling home for weekends.
Let us take the typical case of Basil Metabolism, a sophomore
at UCLA majoring in avocados. Basil, a resident of Bangor,
Maine, loved to go home each weekend to play with his faithful
dog, Spot. What joy, what wreathed smiles, when Basil and
Spot were re-united ! Basil would leap into his dogcart, and
Spot, a genuine Alaskan husky, would pull Basil all over Bangor,
Maine-Basil calling cheery halloos to the townfolk, Spot
wagging his curly tail.
r. .
Z _ -
But the cost, alas, of travelling from UCLA to Bangor, Maine,
ran to $400 a week, and Basil's father, alas, earned only a
meagre salary as a meter-reader for the Bangor water depart-
ment. So, alas, after six months Basil's father told Basil be
could raise no more money; he had already sold everything he
owned, including the flashlight he used to read meters,
Basil returned to California to ponder his dilemma. One
solution occurred to him-to ship Spot to UCLA and keep him
in his room-but Basil had to abandon the notion because of
his roommate, G. Fred Sigafoos, who was, alas, allergic to dog
Then another idea came to Basil--a stroke of genius, you
might call it. He would buy a Mexican hairless chihuahual
Thus hewould have a dog to pull him around, and G. Fred's
allergy would be undisturbed.
The results, alas, were not all Basil had hoped. The chihua-
hua, alas, was unable to pull Basil in the dogcart, no matter
how energetically he beat the animal.
Defeated again, Basil sat down with G. Fred, his roommate,
to smoke a Marlboro Cigarette and seek a new answer to the
problem. Together they smoked and thought and-Eureka!-
an answer quickly appeared. (I do not suggest, mark you, that
Marlboro Cigarettes are an aid to cerebration. All I say about
Marlboros is that they taste good and are made of fine tobaccos
and pure white filters and come in soft pack or Flip Top box.)
Well, sir, Basil and G. Fred got a great idea. Actually, the
idea was G. Fred's, who happened to be majoring in genetics.
Why not, said G. Fred, cross-breed the chihuahua with a Great
Dane and thus produce an animal sturdy enough to pull a dog
It was, alas, another plan doomed to failure. The cross-breed-
ing was done, but the result (this is very difficult to explain) was
a raccoon.
But there is, I am pleased to report, a happy ending to this
heart-rending tale. It seems that Basil's mother (this is also very
difficult to epnlain) is a lamoros blond aged 19 vears. One
