A ALONE ON FESTIVE DAY LEAVENWORTH OFRCER'S KILLER TO SPEND 39TH CHRISTMAS APART. Since Death Sentence Was Com« muted in 1916, Alcatraz Convict Has Lived In Seg- r^ation Cell. San Francisco, Dec. 21.fAP)~ Robert Stroud, Alcatraz convict, this year will be alone with his Christmas in a segregation cell for the thirty-ninth time in his 65 years of life. Stroud has been confined In a segrégation building since 1916 when prosecution began in the slaying of a Leavenw'orth federal prison officer. Scheduled to hang for the murder, Stroud’s sentence was ^mmuted by Président Wilscfh in 1920 to life ia prison. Stroud originally was sentenced to a 12-year term in 1909, when he was 19, for a murder in an Alaska bar. He said then that he fought Charles Darner, the Alaska slaying victim, because Darner was abusing a j)ight club girl. Paul J. Madigan, Alcatraz warden, said Stroud has been confined in segregation since 1916 'by Department of Justice order. In segregation a convict is confined alone, but is allou'ed reading, writing materials and regular prison meals. Solitary confinement restricts diet and denies all communication and correspondence. Madigan said Stroud Was transferred from McNeil Island, W’ash., after an assault on a prisoner there. He was sentenced to death for the slaying of a Leavenworth prison officer, Andrew E. Turner, who was stabbed with a dagger made from a table knife. Stroud came to Alcatraz from Leavenworth December 19. 1942, in time for his first Christmas alone on the rock that year.

Condemnation Judgment Is Made for Manchester Trafficway Link. A judgment in a condemnation action was returned yesterday by Judge Ben Terte of the circuit court which cleared the way for the construction of a 1-mile link in the Manchester trafficw'ay. The Judgment assessed the value of 5.2 acres owned by the Mt. Washington cemetery, a corporation, at $46,000. Tnis is the final right of w'ay needed by the city to carry Manchester north from Truman road to U. S. 24. Another important link, from U. S. 24 north to the Chouteau bridge, dGk)ends upon an allocation of funds. Herbert C. Hoffman, associate city counselor, said it w^as necessary to bring action against the cemetery because it is a nonprofit corporation and is prohibited by law to convey property to another. The city is expected to receive bids shortly for construction of the 1-mile stretch on Manchester. From 1.200 to 1,300 children probably were saved from infantile paralysis by the Salk vaccine program in 1955, a study indicated today. Dr. Hart E. Van Riper, medical director of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, said the figure was based on a nationwide projection of official reports from eleven states. He said statistics gathered by the foundation also show that the polio hospital cases among children who received the vaccine—7 and 8 years old- dropped much more sharply than among other groups. “Man has dented the nationwide pattern of polio attack with respect to different age groups,” he said. He said hospital admittances decreased 52 per cent for 8-year- olds, and 40 per cent for 7-year- olds, compared with a decline of only 17 per cent for the total population.
