'Escape-Proof History Of Alcatraz SAN FRANCISCO (UPD—Tour- Is on the waterfront can pay a ime and peer at Alcatraz Island i the middle of the San Fran- .sco harbor. "But it's so close," they often ay- Close it is, but the mile and a uarter of chill, fast-moving wa- er that separates it from the mainland has been enough to iifle every escape attempt in the 8 years the island has been a ederal civilian prison. Before Tuesday, no one had ver successfully pulled off an es- ape from the "Rock" — as far s is known. What was probably the bl'oodi- st attempt at a break-out began May 2, 1946, and lasted three lays. It took U.S. Marines k> lop the attempted escape. Bernard Coy and Paul Cretzer, vvho had successfully challen"ed even other prisons before they vere transferred to Alcatraz, ashioned a wrench from toilet ixlures to spread the bars in heir cell, Kill Guard They slugged a guard in the main cell block and,' taking his teys, climbed to the barred cage hat protected an armed guard They used their wrench to gel nto the guard tower and over- >owered the guard, taking his ;un. Then they liberated about 30 prisoners. The first officer who was slugged was later killed for refus. ing to tell the whereabouts of the keys to the main cell block. He had tossed them into an empty cell when the riot began, later. Marines stormed ashore, while Coast Guard patrol boats "blockaded the island. The Marines dropped tear gas shells .through a hole in the roof of cell block ) ' and, after a gun battle, the riot was over.' Coy, Cretzer and a third inmate were found dead. Two guards were killed and two other inmates, who'were in on the plot, were later executed. Two Believed Drowned Two kidnapers — Ralph Roe and Jimmy Cole — came close enough to require an official asterisk in the list of escape attempts. On a December night in 1937 they cut the bars in the prison shop and slipped into the bay. They vanished in the fog-bl'anket- ed bay and were never seen again. Prison officials said they were presumed to have drowned, their bodies swept to sea. But no one- knows for sure. A year later, three bank robbers beat a guard to death, but guards killed one inmate and captured the other two. On April 12, 1943, four convicts tied up two guards and jumped 30 feet off a cliff into the bay. As they started to swim, one was struck by a guard's bullet. The inmate, James A. Boarman, sank beneath the waves. Two of the others were recaptured within an hour and the fourth was found hiding on the island three days An Ingenious Try John K. Giles, 50, made one of the most ingenious tries. He • ac quired an Army staff sergeant's! land. as it pulled away from the prison headed for Angel Island. But a head count at Alcatraz disclosed one missing man, and another count on the launch showed one soldier too many; Giles was greeted by guards at Angel Is- uniform in 1945, complete to the dog tags. Dressed in his uniform, he calmly boarded an Army launch Demands Autopsy In Brother's Death PARADISE, Ky. (UPD—Perry County, Ind., Sheriff William Falls Tuesday demanded an autopsy to determine the cause of death of his brother, Fred Falls, 55, Tell City, Ind,, whose body was pulled from the Green River near here. Falls'was reported drowned Saturday night when the boat he was fishing from capsized. A fishing companion, Haymond Winchell, Central City, Ky., said he could not remember what, happened before 1.? found himself swimming to shore. The body was discovered by a team of searchers from the Tel City fire department, accompaniec .by the sheriff. The body was recovered from the swift-flowing river which is near a large Atomic Energy Commission powe plant. Winchell told MufTlenberg County officials that he and Fret Falls were night fishing when the boat overturned. The most recent major out- jreak occurred Sept. 29, 1958, when Aaron W. Burgett and Clyde M. Johnson overpowered a guard and tried to swim for 't. 'ohnson was found hiding on the sland and Burgetfs body was discovered two weeks later, float- ng in the bay. The island took its name from he pelicans that once inhabited .t — Alcatraz means pelicans in Spanish. But it's a tougher bird that makes his home there now—m one convict spoke for them all when he commented: "The trip to Alcatraz is the fastest boat ride In the world—10 minutes to get there and 20 years to get back." : ellowship Given To Cornelius A ?1,000 Lilly Fellowship for the itudy of history has been present. :d to L'Dean Cornelius, 2535 George St., a Logansport high :chool history teacher.
