Inmates Intercept Food The prisoners and seven hostages in the East cell house were without food or water Tuesday with one exception. Once food was passed through the barred door for officers after Inmates promised the guards would get it. However, the food was iintcrcepted by inmates. Clarence Rtizor, assistant superintendent of state prisons, told of a brief interview with one hostage. Lt. I oren Stewart, 55, of Chester. Razor said he was passing when an inmate called to him to come nearer, He said Stewart told him: "I wish you would see if you could bring in some food. The other guards are sick and hungry." Razor said that was all Stewart said as an inmate stood behind him. The inmate told him the other guards were alive and unharmed. He said they were locked in cells on an upper gallery. Earlier, inmates threatened to throw the officers from the top gallery 50 feet to a concrete floor if an attempt was made to storm the east cell house. They were unaware of the new outbreak across the prison yard, beyond a wall. Some of the psychiatric Inmates rubbed kltchjn knives across their three hostages, passed knives near their throats threateningly and waved meat cleavers, it was reported. One hundred twenty Illinois policeman were called for emergency around the clock prison duty. Prison guards, usually unarmed, were given weapons. Rooftops, towers and other vantage points bristled with machine guns and rifles to discourage any break into the prison yard. Nixon Angered By "Lie" That He Is Land Owner By Associated PMII LOS ANGELES — Sen. Richard Nixon today angrily branded as "a lie" a statement by the Democratic National Committee that he and his relp*-'' es own real estate valued at a quarter of a million dollars. "The extent of the desperation of the Stevenson candidacy is shown by this last minute desperate move," the Republican vice presidential nominee said in a statement following the Democrats' charge Tuesday in Washington. "After Mr. Stephen Mitchell and Mr. Adlai Stevenson failed in their attempt to besmirch my honor and integrity, they are now attempting, through the Democratic National Committee, to attack the honor and Integrity of my 75-year-old father, my mother, and my brother." Nixon arrived in Los Angeles early this morning. The Republican candidate will give a major, nationally televised and radio broadcast speech tonight at 7:30 p. m. CST. In his statement this morning, the senator did not issue any further itimization of his income. His press secretary, James Bassett, said Nixon "has made a full disclosure of his and his wife's income in his broadcast last month." The press secretary said he doubted whether the senator would issue any further breakdown. Adlai Makes a 20-Mile Error By Aeeociated Pren GARFIELD, N. J. - Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson made a 20-mile mistake here Tuesday.
