Sixteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Another Prisoner Escapes In Chicago • CHICAGO (UPI) - An accused Murderer escaped Thursday night •from the security ward of the Cook County Hospital where he •was brought from jail to undergo mental tests. The fugitive, Thomas Blanchard 26, Detroit, was the fourth county jail prisoner to escape within the past two days. On Wednesday, accused hired gunman William Triplatt, 37, also of Detroit, and two other prisoners broke out of special quarters for state's attorney's witnesses on the fifth floor of the jail adminis tration building. The extensive search for Triplett, key witness in a gangland slaying case here, and the other two escapees centered around Cincinnati, Ohio, where they abandoned a kidnap victim and his Barbershop Harmony At LHS Sunday The 52 - voice Thoroughbred Chorus from Louisville, Ky., will entertain residents here Sunday with a "Barbershop Harmony Time" in the Logansport high school auditorium. The program, sponsored by the Logansport'chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, will begin at 2 p.m. A PARTIAL LIST of Thoroughbred Chorus song selections includes: "Kentucky's Way of Saying Hello", "It's Barbershop Harmony Time", "So Tired", "Liza", "Let Me Call You Sweet Heart", "Abide With Me", "My Old Kentucky Home", "Carolina in the Morning", "The South Rampart Street Parade", "The Smile Medley", "Now the Day is Over", and "May the Good' Lord Bless and Keep You".

Police said Blanchard apparently picked the lock on the leg iron, which held him to a hospital bed and fled down a fire escape. The ipoliceman who was guard- .ing him, Dee Jones, 51, said when he returned from a brief visit to another room Blanchard was gone. The leg icon was still attached to the bed. In the earlier escape, the four guards whom Triplett and his companions overpowered and outwitted to break-out were being given lie tests. The tests were ordered for the ;uard, an elevator operator who was bound by the three, and five other prisoners in the special quarters who did not try 'to escape. State's Atty. Daniel Ward ordered the tests to determine if negligence, security violations or possible collusion were involved in the break out.
