MONDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Missouri Prison Officials Maintain Disciplinary Clamp JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Officials maintained a tight disciplinary clamp over convicts at the Missouri State Penitentiary today after the third mass rebellion in a. month. In the latest outbreak — a food riot Saturday — one prisoner was killed and 37 injured. Warden Ralph N. Eidbon told reporters that "all is calm" now and the men seem relaxed, but he added. "Just one silly kid could set of! a new rampage in the dining room." The riot started in a dining room where 500 to 600 inmates were being fed. A guard reported one convict, apparently objecting to bologna sandwiches, yelled "Plat dog." Others took up the cry and began tossing their plates and food on the floor. Guards fired on the convicts after they ran out into the prison yard. All privileges have been taken from the 3,000 inmates. Radios, newspapers and magazines are banned. They also were without yard and recreational freedom yesterday. Meanwhile, Gov. Phil M. Don- Britain's Dock Strike Enters Fourth Week LONDON UB — Britain's waterfront strike, which has idled 44,000 of 76,000 cargo handlers in this maritime nation, entered its fourth week today with no settlement in sight. The National Federation of wholesale Grocers warned that stocks ot imported bacon, cheese, butter, eggs and tinned fruits were running low and said the situation would become serious if the work stoppage continues until next weekend. The strike has paralyzed the big port of London and crippled operations at six other important ports, including the key freight-handling cities of Liverpool and Hull. More than 300 ships are idle in the ports. Cargoes worth an estimated 120 million pounds (336 million dollars) are being held up. A committee of government ministers which has been keeping an eye on essential imports scheduled another meeting for today. It was expected the group would recommend the use of troops as stevedores if the strike continues beyond Wednesday. The dockers walked off their jobs in support of a demand for the i right to refuse overtime work. nelly and prison officials intensified their study of the state penal system. Survey Planned The governor is trying to set up a commission to survey the entire Missouri setup. Work was started on it after the most disastrous riot in the prison's history occurred last Sept. 22. Four prisoners were killed and 30 men injured. Another rebellion Friday was quelled without casualties. None of the convicts injured Saturday was reported in serious condition. Nine were wounded by guards. The others, suffering bruises and lacerations, were believed injured in tights between Negro and white prisoners. The Negro prisoners were just being marched into the dining hall when white convicts started their food demonstration. A guard killed Joseph Coffey, 27, who was serving a six-year term for burglary and larceny, at the top of a stairs in a cell block. The warden said Coffey was shot after he and other prisoners tossed chairs and furniture down the stairs at the guards. The warden said Coffey refused to heed commands to get back to his cell. A disturbance also occurred Saturday night in the women's branch of the prison, which is located about a half mile from the men's penitentiary.

HOPE FOR THE WOMAN ALCOHOLIC The wmnaii who (urns lo AA learns very soon that, so far as modern medicine knows, if she is now an alcoholic she will always be an alcoholic. There is no known "cure" for alcoholism. This is a very simple fad. It must be faced out but it needs not be discouraging. Heinji an alcoholic means simply you have a choice of two things—You can continue lo drink, in which case the only foreseeable ends will be premature death or confinement in an institution, or you can face up to the reality of your condition and live without alcohol. If you are an alcoholic, living without alcohol sounds like a fantastically impossible way of life. Alcohol may be associated in your mind with many pleasant memories. It may seem us important to you as food, clothin); or shelter. Ijfc without alcohol may seem barren and uninviting. The answer to these mental reservations is that thousands of women, many of whom probably had longer drinking histories than your own, have chosen to live without alcohol uml now iiuvc no desire to return to their former drinking patterns. Their lives have become more useful und more meaningful. To these women it has not been a case of "giving up" something.. ..but of acquiring a new appreciation of what life can mean. I These women have given up hangovers and the sense of shame and remorse that follows so much uncontrolled drinking. They have given up the alcoholic quarrels with loved ones, the feeling of failure where husbands and children arc concerned, and the terror tnnt comes from wondering what may have happened during a drunken blackout. In their place, these women in AA have acquired new physical and emotional health —a feeling of having a place in the world and of being useful. They have acquired a new sense of self respect and the knowledge of their children's, husband's or sweetheart's love—honestly earned and freely given.
