(U.P.)—A prison train which left a trail of escaped, wounded and recaptured mili- lui'y prisoners across three states left here today with 60 heavily-Hrmecl guards aboard. The guards and officers appeared tense although (here was one for almost every two of the 148 prisoners who have staged three riots on their trip from New York to Camp /•< i. /->„ i:r -t- • -^"- "^^^^ Jonesboro Utility's Minimum Charge for Water 'Drive Launched Blytheville Wins Fnund tr> Rt* AXi,r/» / M*, T/,™ PK,#J,«,,;//« D~*~ r" fg Lau " UICU J . . ~ Cook, Calif. + The train was scheduled lo arrive here Rt 11 p.m. (MST) last night, but did not pull into until 1:50 a r m. today. The delay was caused at Minium. Oolo.» where a disturbance broke out in one ot the cars and two prisoners broke loose. One of the escapees was wounded critically by a gunrd's rifle, and the other was recaptured several hours Inter at Leadvillc, Colo. When the train pulled out of here it had a now commanding officer, Col. Wade Killen, Salt I>aXe City. The former commander, Maj. Henry Noble, wax still aboard but in a secondary capacity. Noble, nervously twisting his Jiands, explained what happened Minturn, and all the way through issonri and Kansas, to a group of newsmen and higher ranking officers, most «t them colonels from nearby Fort Douglas. Triple Line of Guards "At no time," Nob!e said, "did the silualion get out of hand." A triple line of soldiers guarded the train as it stood in the Salt Lake station. The line nearest the train patrolled it constantly, armed with sub-machine guns, tear gas and revolvers. Behind them stood a line of alerted soldiers armed with tear gas and clubs. Behind them stood the third line of guards armed with rifles, nausea gas and sawec\-olf shotguns. Patrolling the street side of the station wer6 three carloads of Salt Lake City police armed with riot gurus. The station itself was patrolled by armed sheriff's deputies. Noble described the prisoners aboard the vvain. as "the most desperate criminals in th« Army and the most, cunning. 1 ' "All of them are hardened and shrewd and many of them were criminals before they got into the Army," he said. Noble said the prisoners began causing intermittent trouble after the train left St. Louis yesterday , morning. Prior to that, he said there were no "appreciable disturbances." The train left here via Union Pacific tracks bound for I>os Ajige- les where it will be switched onto Southern pacific tracks for the run North to Camp Cook, one of the ar- Anny's "maximum dentention" bar- f^acks. The first disturbance aboard the train occurred near Windsor, Mo Two prisoners escaped during the brief fight. Three more broke during another disturbance at Tribune, Kans. Two of the men who escaped h Kansas were reported captured and held for Lowry Field, Colo., officials Both Missouri escapees were also captured without incident by civilian police. The worst trouble occurred Minturn, Colo., where Iwo prisoners escaped. They were Sarario P. Piore of New York City and Thomas Mulligan, address unknown. Noble said that Mulligan and Piore were handcuffed to each oth er ami were wearing leg irons a the time. "They got hold of some wire and opened the cuffs and irons,' he said. "Then they put their overcoats over their heads and jumpe, head-first through the windows anc got away. . The train was stopped and gunrd. {phoned fire on the two escapees Fiore fell with a bullet in his ab domen. Mulligan got away but %va recaptured, cold and hungry, on fti Eafttbau n d f r&i gli t t ra in in th i mountainous country near Leadvilk Colo, He had turned his prisoner' uniform inside out and was hud tiled among machinery on the train Sheriff's officers who capture" him, said he was "very quiet am subdued." All of the prisoners were hand cuffed today, some to other pri soners and a few to the seats c the train. Many were also place in leg irons. It had been reported tliat all e the prisoners \veie under long terr sentences. However.

Vishinsky. Balkans Issue Still Hot The Polish proposal for a reversal of the political committee's decision on Greece was a last-ditch effort to remove the implication of guilt from Albania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia—the three countries earned by the political committee to avoid offering aid to Greek guerrillas. Tlie proposal would call tor the withdrawal of all "foreign troops . foreign military missions, instructors and other military experts" from Greek territory. The proposal did not include the oft-rejected Soviet plea for a UN commission lo/supervise Truman doctrine and other outside aid to Greece The UN's Palestine debate moved toward a crucial stage, meanwhile, with the 57-nation Palestine Committee preparing to listen lo last- minute staicme-nts by Palestine's Jews and Arabs and then take a note on Hie principle of partitioning Palestine into Arab and Jewish states. Officials of the Blythcville Water* Company, a privately owned public utility, recently filed application with tlic Arkansas Public Service Commission seeking authority to increase rales In this city and at the lime Ihe application was filed disclosed that It would not seek an increase In the minimum charge. Increases arc soughi, however, for all consumers whose inelcrs register consumption of more than 2,000 gallons In any one month. The Blytheville company's present rale for the 8,000 gallons above the minimum charged for 2.000 gallons is lower than (he Jonesboro rate by two cents, but if Ihe increase asked in Ihe application to the Public Service Commission is granted, Uie new Dlythc- ville rate will be three cents per 1,000 gallons higher than tlw Jonesboro rale when the monthly consumption docs not exceed 10,000 gollons. IMW Rale for Large Consumers Further study of the present rates )r the two cities discloses that a consumer in Blytheville who use.-, around 100.0CO gallons of water nonthly is able to get Die water furnished cheaper than In Jonesboro. In Blytheville the cost is 517.20 for 103,000 gallons in contrast lo a charge of $21.60 in Jonesboro. But that same 103,000 gallons of water under the rate projwscd for Blytheville would jump the cost to $23.25, which is $1.05 higher than the Jonesboro rate. When tlic water consumption in Jonesboro for any one consumer goes above 103.000 gallons per month, the rate for excess consmnplion drops 'o 13-5 coats per 1,000 gallons, and when the consumption goes above 203,030 the rate drops to 9 cents, for 100.000 gallons ami then still another cent for all water used in excess of 303,000 gallons per month. The present rate for Blytheville is lo cents [>er 1,000 gallons up to 400.000 gallons per month and then drops to 10 cents, per 1,000 for the next 400,000 gallons with all in excess furnished at a rate of 8.5 cents per l.OCO. The new rate, if the Public Service Commission grants !hc petition ot- the Blytiieville Water Company, fill be 2o cents per 1,000 where it -now is lo cents; and 12 cents where it now fs'l'ff^and 10 cents where it now is 8.5 cents, It' was f explained when the petition was submitted.
