Who Once Fled Now Tries Legal Woy Out Lawrence O'Leary, bad man of a generation ago who once got out of Western Penitentiary by climbing over the wall, is trying to get out legally now. O'Leary, 48, member of the old "Blue Bandana Gang," will make his appeal for -freedom Tuesday. His attorney, Norman Paul Wolken, started habeas corpus proceedings yesterday and Judge Michael A. Musmanno set the date for the convict to make his plea in court. Ii his petition for release, filed in the office of Prothonotary David B. Roberts, the prisoner pleaded: "I haven't heard a kid laugh for the past 17 years ... I have lost almost every one dear to me." O'Leary was sentenced in 1934 to serve two consecutive terms of 10-to-20 years as a habitual criminal. The former mobster claims he was wrongly branded a "habitual criminal" and, as a result, the stiff prison sentence was illegal. Originally from Soho, O'Leary was first sent to Western Peni- iTD9:0ininBHItfBi tentary In 1924 to serve six to 12 years. In March, 1925, he escaped the prison with six others. Recaptured shortly after, he served eight years and was paroled by.Gov. Gifford Pinchot. It was then that O'Leary joined the "Blue Bandana Gang" of killers, robbers and safe-crackers. In 1932 he was arrested as the member of a safe-cracking ring in East Liberty, and put away two years later for his present term.

Bradley announced. Another spokesman for the group, C. W. Hoeftman, stated that members of the Society "probably will ask individuals running the stands and stores to remove objectionable literature." "Complete plans have not yet been made," he added. "A committee of ten men has been appointed to thrash out all phases of the campaign Dec 2. "This might be a touchy thing," he continued, "but we feel the children should be protected."
