Two prisoners listed a» William Babb and Bob Capps were slightly wounded before guards quelled the rioting. Captain of th e prison guards, n. f. Goodman, said the rioting occurred in a cell block where recalcitrant prisoners who took part in a prison strike on May 3 have been confined. Cioodinau siiid they got out, of 1 their cells by "twisting bars" and were attempting to get out of the prison run into the yard when guards discovered them. Yelling and shouting, they refused to return to their cells until the guards fired into them, wounding two. The strike last May 3, occurred when prisoners demanded more concessions from prison autnoritics. As a result they were granted ad- ditional meal atld recreational privileges.
