TUESDAY, JULY 14, 1953 BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE F1VB Oregon Prison Rebellion Ends After 4 Days Lait of 1,000 Prisoners Herded Back into Cells SALEM, Ore. UK — The Oregon Prison—torn four days by strike, t riot ana rebellion—was again quiet today. The last of the 1,000 rebelling convicts, cowed by discomfort, meagre food and little water, were returned to their cells last night. They were taken In groups of 30 from the prison recreation yard, where they have been held since Saturday, and locked up. Warden Clarence T. Gladden said they were docile and respectful now. Work was to begin soon to .repair the $100,000 damage wrought by Saturday's brief but intensive rioting. And a private contractor was to rush completion of a new segregation cell block which the convicts had ben building. Gladden said that the first occupants of the new cell block would be the 21 ringleaders of the revolt which started last Friday morning with a sitdown strike. They now are in isolation cells, under a stricter discipline. The disturbance began Friday morning with an orderly no-work strike. The first flareup occurred Friday night when Gladden rejected the demands saying that standards of food, clothing and medicine already were high. Given No Food Saturday morning the convicts set the prison tailor shop and several other buildings ablaze. The convicts were driven by tear gas into the recreation area in one corner of the. prison yard. They remained there under the watch of heavily armed guards patrolling the wal, through Saturday and overnight. By Sunday morning many of them were ready to give up the rebellion. But Gladden held them there, without food or water, through Sunday to be sure no more flareups would occur. On Sunday night he called on 21 ringleaders to surrender In return for reopening the water line to the area. The 21 gave themselves up. The revolt seemed to be over. Gladden sent a meal of soup, bread and coffee and started admitting the convicts 20 at a time, to their cells. After about 125 had been returned, the remaining convicts became restive again and shouted "now we have the warden on the run." Gladden answered that by closing the gate and leaving the 800 there until night. Gladden, who was hired after the previous warden had been dismissed on grounds of laxness, said TIME OUT FOR A CANNED BATH—Using an old metal drum, Pvt. Hans W. Hirsch, of New York takes lime out for his weekly bath somewhere along the Korean battle front. There's no hook for hanging his clothes, and it's a mighty tight squeeze, but it sure is great to get rid of battle grime. Americans Unofficially Aiding Nationalists B ySEPNCE ROMOS A TAIPE .HFormosa Wl— Agroup of Americans with no official U.S. connections is helping train and supply Chinese Nationalist guerrillas on a group of Nationalist held islands off the Red China coast, informed quarters here said today. The highly successful guerrilla raid on Red-held Nanjih Island last October is attributed partially to this unofficial U. S. training and supply activity. Informed sources expressed doubt that the more than 30 small coastal island would be Included In the official U. S. defense perimeter. They said aid given the guerrillas presumably will remain unofficial. A Foreign Office spokesman explained that the agreement between the Nationalist government and the U.S. Military Assistance Advisory Group covers only the joint defense of Formosa and th\! Pescadores. At various times over the past two years or so, the Nationalists have suggested that U.S. aid be extended to cover the Nationalist- held islands of the China coast. But nothing has come of this. Government quarters said Nationalist garrisons on the islands are on a continuous alert, but so far there have been no direct assaults on the island Which lie between Shanghai and Formosa. A few islands at lesser impor^ tance have changed hands on occasion, frequently without blood- sued. Small Nationalist or Communist groups scout some uninhabited . dot of an island, remain for i while and then withdraw.

Probe Group Dies CHICAGO W)—The Chicago City Council's Emergency Crime Committee died yesterday. The official declaration killing the group was made by Circuit Judge Walter R. O'Melley, who earlier hal ruled that the committee Dealer Silent On Free SWAP Of AHD Cars LITTLE ROCK W) — The State Highway Department said yesterday it "had not heard" from a Cabot auto dealer who promised to supply 15 new cars on July I as part of swap. Highway Director Herbert Eldridge said the Bailey Motor Co., agreed to trade 75 new cars for old ones in April and then retrade the April batch for 75 more new vehicles on July 1. No money was to be involved in the trade. The Internal Revenue department said no excise tax was necessary on the cars which Bailey Motors delivered in April. But, the federal tax officials eaid the tax had to be paid on the July deal. Eldridge said he was still "holding the Bailey firm to the bargain." Bailey was reported as saying the d^Iay was due to difficulty in obtaining the new cars. The highway director said that, since the terms of the auto swap agreement make no reference to the state's paying a tax, presumably the tax will have to be paid by Bailey.
