Burke said that the convicted also released four guards they had held as hostages In the two-story laundry building. Burke said he planned to question the prisoners later today. He 'said they surrendered after he had used a loud speaker to warn them that they were surrounded and that their situation was hopeless. "We have the situation in hand," he said. "You haven't a chance. We'll let you stay there until you starve unless you come out now voluntarily." A few minutes later the men yelled from the windows that they were ready to give up.

Rennebohm was on the scene today when the men gave up as additional deputies were rushing to reinforce the prison guards. Hlj authority to call the guard was handed to Adjutant General John F. Mullen who also was at the prison. By daybreak, ]2o officers had ar rived from as far away as Milwaukee and Madison. The guards barricaded in the laundry with the prisoners were not believed to be in danger. Warden John C. Burke s^ld they apparently were not being held as hostages because the prisoners had permitted them to keep their steel-tipped clubs. They were supervising the prisoners when the mutiny started. The convicts did not say why they went on "strike" but they demanded to talk with State Wei-' fare Director A. W. Bayley, presumably about conditions at the prison.
