Three Dead, Three Recaptured
by Leavenworth Officials;
Five Are Wounded.
LEAVENWORTH, Kan., Dec. 12.-
(4)-Three of seven convicts who
executed a daring plot to escape
from the federal penitentiary here
Friday are dead, apparently by
their own hands, three of their
companions are again in confine-
ment and the other, a gray-haired
Oklahoma mail train robber, is
hunted by possemen.
The fugitive, Earl Thayer, 65, dis-
appeared under the noses of 200
soldiers, prison guards, civilian offi-
eers and citizens who Friday cor-
nered four of the seven prisoners in
the farm house of E. C. Salsbury,
eight miles west of Leavenworth.
Five men were wounded during
the flight of the prisoners, includ-
ing Warden Thomas B. White, who
was kidnaped from his office and
used as a shield to aid in the de-
parture through the massive front
gate of the penitentiary.
The warden, whose left arm was
shattered by a shotgun charge after
he grappled with one of his abduc-
tors, during a halt on a country
road,eunderwent an operation in a
L eavenworth hospital. None of
those hurt was in a critical condi-
tion.
Prison authorities said efforts to
learn how the participants n the
break obtained their weapons have
been futie. Three of the prisoners,
returned to cells following short-
lived liberty, refused to discuss a
shotgun, rifle and four revolvers
they were believed to have pos-
sessed at the beginning of their
flight.
