United SUites ptftltejrtlary guards -have given t*p organized search for Bart Thayer, who was serving a 25- year sentence for an Oklahoma mail Wain robbery when he and the other six tfrlsotiers made a sensational dash fot fihcrtjr ftflday, With Wffrdtft thos. *1.< White as hosttge. -. Gtinrds despatched hurriedly to in vefetigate a report that A man Stayed Friday 'night in a vacant farhihBuse 25 miles west, near Winchester, Kan., were called back to the,prison Saturday night, and- during; the;Sabbath quiet prevailed oVer the scerte. Frcif Zerbst, warden of the federal penitentiary ahneX.TWw in charge of both prisons while Warden White lies in a hospital • recuperating from wounds inflicted-by a convict, said guards will be sent out again if a warm trail is picked up. Prison officials (said no trace of Thayer Was«found Sunday. The last indication of his pretence in the vicinity of - th'e Emerson Salsbury farmhouse,-eight-miles west, where three 1 prisoners died apparently from bullet Wounds inflicted by *he of -their number, 'was-his-coat fOirtid toy bloodhounds about a •" half mile from the house. • -.- ':'" ••'• • - I . ' Thayer. Dangerous .The trail faded a\?ay 'arid was*lost where Thayer presumably covered it up by walking in a stfrearn. Warden White retfavde^ltliayer.fes the .most ..desperate of the seven and named him as the man who refceated- lyurgeoT the others 'that White should be killed; v ' '""" White, in'a*, hospital here, .Has tehpwn much cdncifir/n over ' the search for Thayer. The warden relayed; word through Mrs. \Vhife that Thayer had told, him: "This is »»y Only chance for freedom. I'm taking it end if I die you're going to die with me." A convicts threat to bloV up the prison entrance With 'dynamite caused the Warden to issue the order releasing the seven "convicts and their seven hostages -to the outer world, Mrs. Write revealed. ; -., The prisoner, Mrs. .White said her husband,told her, had lighted a match and sai<j'he would 1 touch it to a short fuse in a s't'ick of -dynamite he brandished.,if the , main gate were not opened. ; ' , . An autopsy .showed William Green, Kansas City mail robber, as the slayer of his two coniip'ftniims, Grover O'Dur- -iU and George Curtis, and himself, when.they were surrounded in the Salisburyo^armhouse. Officftls i*^ ; they believe if'Thayer had rt«*M»Wti he too would .have .been killed by Green When the leader realized escape was hopeless and:chose to die rather than: surrender. Stanley Brown and, Tom Underwood,: brought in alive with Charles Berta, -who was wounded in the shoulder, aVe cdnfiried in the penitentiary incommunicado. Berta is in the prison hospital, arid the other two in. solitary. "Zerbst said they 'may be charged with prison break, punishable fcy a maximum penalty of five years additional Imprisonment and $1,000 fine. He'added it was.'possible they would be accused of complicity in assault with intent to kill the warden. The three are key witnesses in the Department of Justice investigation of firearms Smuggled 1 into the prison, and how convicts obtamed passes to the warden's office. The investigation also centers on the action of prison guards who did not resist the escaping convicts, and who later explained they did not shoot either because the warden ordered them .not to or because they feared they might wound other persons. Warden Zerbst has criticised the guard at the south armory from which a machine gun commands the grand starway leading to the main gate of the prison. He said that although the convicts as they came down the steps on the first lap of the escape, prison officials must take chances of being killed and the' guard should have fired. The guard, Hubert Gray, fired a rifle shot later, but was ordered to cease firing at a signal given at the warden's command by his secretary. Warden White took a different view in the interview related through his wife. He said much bloodshed by in-r nocent persons was averted on the prison lawn by Gray's inactivity, and said if one convict had been shot, the 'others, all armed, would have staged a pitched battle there. ] R.
