St. Joseph •'WORLD'S LARGEST SELLER AT IBi Philadelphia, April 14 — (/P) — Lanky, rawbonod Jim Tyack, who looks more like a railroad engineer than a rookie, took a lingering look around Shibe Park.

"They took a look at this," he said, brushing his gray - specked temples. "I'm HO years old. The scouts want kids." Before the gray appeared? "Maybo it was because 1 can't seem to gel started early.

For the first hour along the slippery trail there was a constant checking of mules and luggage by the muleteer, the Indian servant boys and Renaldo. Then, satisfied the baggage was secure and the mules arranged in the best order possible, they settled down to the arduous, monotonous task of sticking onto the muscular little animals as they made their way over steep, slippery roots and pulled themselves out of mud holes. Barry, mopping the water from his face, peered ahead at Allison's slight figure beginning to slump in Ihe saddle. "How you coming?" he called. When she didn't answer, he spurred his mule ahead at a wide spot in the trail and came alongside her. There was a look of strained pain on her face under Ihe rivulels of water. "Anything wrong?" Honest concern and humorous malice blended nicely in Barry's voice. She pulled up the corners ol her mouth in angry imitation of mirth. "Wrong?" she echoed, hei voice wobbling shrilly. She raised one trembling hand and pushed back tendrils of escaping hair with a fluttering laugh. "What could be wrong?" she scoffed, bitterly. "Beyond being broken ii 16 pieces, every tooth in my heac shaken out by this fiendish beas of a mule, and baked and drownec at the same time, I'm just line How are all your family?" Barry threw back his head will a laugh. "It hasn't touched you disposition yet," he said. "If I ever find out," she added vehemently, "that there's an other way of getting into tha plantation than over this torlur rack, I'll shoot Renaldo right ii the middle of that beautiful bad of his and draw and quarter Jiin with my own hands." Renaldo turned about in hi saddle with a dismayed smile "After an hour or so," he sug ge.stcd, "we might stop lor an earl lunch." ' "You can put me right in the kettle," Allison blazed. "I'll be dead and pounded tender by then." # * * T^HE rain went steadily on. By afternoon the trail was a quagmire and the mules' progress pain- ully slow. Allison had revived omewhat during the pause for unch—enough to resent Renaldo's lea that she go back to Puerto Barrios. "Have I held you up this mowing?" she demanded indignantly. "No," Renaldo admitted, his harp 1 , dark eyes brooding over er pale face, "but I can't bear to ee you suffer." "You'll have to bear it," snapped Allison. "Do you want me to got epressions?" As the afternoon wore on the ungle grew denser, the trees arger. The buzz of insects rose n a heavy pall of sound. The ungle seemed suddenly ;Ho have losed in around them. ; . Allison turned and motioned Barry to crowd his mule closer, thought he caught a frightened glint in her wide eyes. She began o talk brightly. "I have some Mayan knives that ,vere dug from around here," she old him. "Father sent them to ne once. Did you know this was Mayan country?" Renaldo smiled back at them. It was the chicle scouts looking .'or zapole trees who discovered .he Mayan ruins," he said. "So, you might say, if it were not for the gum chewers, the ancient civilization might never have been known to historians." 'I wish I'd had that argument to use when I was a kid," laughed Barry. "I never could convince mother that I was abetting culture with my gum chewing." The light moment was broken by Allison's scream. Her mule had stepped into one of the treacherous suck holes. The mud was rising rapidly around his knees. "What can 1 do?" she screamed. # * * T3ENALDO called curt directions to his own beast and tugged on his reins. It backed slowly toward Allison's until its tail touched Ihe other mule's desperately flailing head. The struggling little animal seemed reassured. It grasped the lead mule's tail with its strong white teeth. Renaldo leaped off and pulled. His mule strained forward. Allison's smaller animal held on grimly, his legs kicking feebly at the sucking mud. Slowly he was pulled 'free and scrambled like a mountain goat up onto firmer ground. "Bravo!" Allison patted the mule's heaving side. "Plucky little devils, aren't they?" she cried to Barry. "I'm going to call him* hopping Cassidy. Look at around like a sand flea." Renaldo drew his mule up at the first good specimen of zapote tree. Allison examined it eagerly. She turned to Barry with a flash of her old spirit. "That's what I'm going to climb when I learn to be a chiclero," she said arrogantly. You see that other tree so close to the zapote?" Renaldo went on. "That is the compadre tree—very poisonous. Its leaves drip into the eyes of the chicleros. Many have their eyeballs destroyed." Allison didn't answer him. She dug her heels abruptly into the sides of Cassidy and went on, but Barry could see the shiver of horror that went through her slim body. They were within a mile of the estancia where they would stop for the night, balancing their last hoarded strength against these final minutes—when it happened. The hindmost mule of the baggage train, stumbled wearily into a vicious suck hole. The two small trunks lashed to its back were half submerged before the servant's call brought help. Ronaldo's face was set and strained with fatigue. 'He looked at the small creature whose head and terrorized eyes only were above the sucking mud and said, "It's no use. I'm sorry about your trunks, Miss Topping." Allison grabbed his hand as it pulled the gun from his holster. Her voice whipped out in hysterical command. Barry watched the exhausted natives, undo r her screamed threats, run for block and tackle, hitch ropes through wooden blocks tied to overhanging trees. Angrily he muttered to her as six mules strained in agonized effort at the rope tied about the bogged animal's head. "You would have to save your precious trunks!" She looked at him and said nothing, but he was struck with a sudden feeling of iron buried somewhere beneath that deceptively delicate nature of hers. She was down on her knees, a slim white figure, helping get the slings under the beast. It was her hands, scratching and bleeding, that supported the shaking beast when it was finally pulled up onto firm ground. Renaldo slashed the ropes and, as the muddy trunks dropped, she helped ease the suffering animal to the ground, murmuring to it as she poured water over its square little head. Then she raised her eyes in one last flash of command. "Throw those trunks in the SUCK hole!" she said.

Hamilton, 36, believed wounded and drowned in an at- lempled escape from Alcalraz, personally pleaded for leniency before he was senlenced to the 30 years he was serving when he and three others sought to flee the island prison yesterday.
