A ft ThlTlMES-REPOflTf.R •0 Sat., July 27,1974 OOVIR.NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO Convicts continue to hold hostages HUNTSVILLE, Tex. (AP) — Armed convicts have refused to release the 11 hostages they hold at the Texas State Prison In return for their own freedom. They also rejected surrender. Prison officials said Friday night the deal was refused by Fred Gomez Carrasco, the Imprisoned underworld narcotics boss who has been identified as the leader of the seven rebel convicts. Newsmen were told of the offer of freedom and Carrasco's refusal to give up shortly after a flurry of seven gunshots were heard Inside the prison compound. Prison spokesman Ron Taylor said the shots were fired by Carrasco when he became upset about talk of surrender. Prison authorities quick- ly announced none of the mostly middle-aged school teacher-librarians being held hostage were harmed. Also among the hostages are a guard and a Roman Catholic priest. Carrasco has threatened to kill the hostages unless prison officials provide the rebels with automatic weapons, ammunition and bulletproof vests. Described as dangerous, complex and likely to back up his murder threats, Carrasco also demanded civilian clothing, three bullet-proof helmets and three walkie- talkies. Taylor said the clothing, helmets and walk- ie-talkies were given to the rebels, but he would not say if more weapons were given the convicts. He said that at Carrasco's request, newsman Joe Sweeney of SanAntonto television station WOAI talked for several hours to the rebel leader and the hostages by telephone Inside the prison walls. The standoff began at midday Wednesday when Carrasco produced a pistol in the third floor library wounded a guard in the foot and seized a dozen hostages. Six other Inmates Joined Carrasco in the rebellion, two of the convicts turning up with their own guns Authorities have been unable to explain how the inmates got the weapons. Carrasco, 34, a once powerful underworld narcotics figure throughout South Texas and Mexico, began a life term in January after pleading guilty to an assault to murder charge stemming from a.motel Shootout with San Antonio police last year. mi i - .^^^—•.JMMff"""'""****** 1 ''*' 11 *^^^^^^^ FREE SEKINE STYLE & GROOM HAIR BRUSH Choose from Professional, Half Round, Styling , ^ >,. | or Men's Club Brush.
