Cook County Jailers Were Asleep When 6 Inmates Fled Thursday rfTJT/~»A*-»/"\,/TTT-»Y\ v» • ' CHICAGO (UPI) - Prison authorities believe that guards may have been asleep early Thursday when six inmates', including three held on mur- : der charges, escaped from the maximum security wing of Cook County jail. Police today were searching for the six fugitives. The men placed dummies in their bunks, then used a smuggled hacksaw to cut through a sheet metal wall leading to an air vent, a spokesman for the •Cook County sheriff's office said. They then crawled 10 feet up the air vent to the roof, sawed through a bar and used 'bedsheets to lower themselves four stories to the ground. . The men then ran about 100 yards through the complex and got out of the prison by scaling a newly installed 12- foot cyclone fence in view of three guard towers, the spokesman said. "It was a very well-executed plan," said Winston Moore, director of the Cook County Department of Corrections. Moore said the guards on duty at the time of the escape would undergo lie detector tests today. He said two of them had cases of "excessive absenteeism" pending. "We believe they were asleep," Moore said. Authorities said the escape took place between 4:30 a.m:, when guards last checked the fugitives', cell tier, and 9:40 a.m., when it was discovered the six were missing. The men were identified as Richard Covelli, 21, Joseph Ganci, 26, Pete Ukite, 21, Robert Ramsey, 24, Robert Koonski,, 18, and Joseph Greer, 23, all of Chicago. Covelli, Ganci and Ukite were being held on murder charges. Ramsey was accused of armed robbery, Kolonski of aggravated battery and Green of burglary and attempted escape. Seventeen inmates escaped from the jail May 14 in the largest breakout in the 46-year history of the facility. Six of those fugitives remain at large. Asked why there had been so many escapes from the jail, Moore answered: "If I could explain why there were so many, there wouldn't be any.". Skokie Police Wives Stay Night In The Village Hall Thursday SKOKIE, 111. (UPI) - About 30 po- Hce wives spent the night in the Village Jail Thursday night in support of a uniform strike by their policemen hus- Bands, but some 100 children who had geen on hand the first night of the pro- rest were sent home under court order. * Cook County Circuit Court Judge Nathan J. Cohen held an emergency tearing Thursday on a suit filed by the tillage against the protesters and the Bpmbined Counties Police Association, pohen ordered all persons under the ' of 15 out of the Village Hall by 8 p.m. Thursday but refused to enter any other orders. He told lawyers for both sides to return to his courtroom today. "I trust you will think further about discussing this matter between now and then," Cohen told the^attorneys. The CCPA at first insisted that Cohen had merely requested that the children leave, the building and that he had not issued any formal order, but the union finally ordered the children sent home about 2% hours after the court- imposed deadline. festival Stagehands End Their Picketing fc * EDWARDSVILLE, 111. (UPI) .Stagehands who picketed at the Missis- ; sippi River Festival ended their wage Dispute Thursday, removing the threat •bf cancellation of weekend symphony performances. *•• Members of Stage Employes Local 6 s£et up a picket line Wednesday night at jthe festival. About 25,000 persons grossed the line to attend a performance by the English rock group Yes. •' The union said Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville should hire union workers at $6.50 an hour rather than use students at $2.10 an hour and civil service employes at $5.10 an hour. The agreement to halt picketing was announced by Arnold Franke, assistant vice president for business affairs at the university. No settlement terms were announced. The women began their protest Wednesday night to track their husbands' demands for higher wages. "We're tired of being ignored. We are ready to go the full route,"- one woman demonstrator said. She said most of the children treated the sit-in like "one big pajama party." Police are seeking aHeast an 8 per cent increase and the village has offered 5 per cent. Current starting rate for a beginning patrol officer is $11,794 a year. '^ , • Striking officers have protested by wearing civilian clothing during duty hours. They are not allowed to work unless in uniform. One sergeant.^nd 53- patrolmen are involved in the protest action. The department employs 93 patrolmen. Earlier this week the strikers were charged with violating village rules by Police Chief Kenneth Chamberlain. The move threw -the issue into the jurisdiction of life Skokie Police and Fire Commission, $tjich could recommend penalties including suspension or dismissal. The commission meets Monday, i utterfield Has CIA Background .WASHINGTON (UPI) - Alexander , iutterfield, the man who disclosed the Existence of the Nixon White House •apes, had a Central Intelligence Agency background and may have >een a CIA contact while a presiden- lal aide, NBC and CBS reported to[' The two networks' reports were feased mostly on remarks of retired Air force Col. Fletcher Prouty, wl.o said lje served as liaison between that branch of the armed forces and the CIA. Prouty said today he was told Butterfield was a "contact" man in the White House by E. Howard Hunt, a former CIA agent and one of the original Watergate defendants. "I think the description would fit Alexander Butterfield," Prouty said today on the CBS Morning News when asked if he knew anyone who might be an agent in the White House. Prouty said Butterfield previously had "assignments to the agency as a contact officer" when he was an Air Force colonel before going to work for Richard M. Nixon in the White House. Rep. Robert W. Hasten, R-Wis., a member of the special House Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday the- panel has seen evidence of "possible infiltration" by the CIA of the White House; other government agencies and the news media. White House Press Secretary Ron Nessen and CIA Director William Colby both denied any infiltration Thursday. : -, "There has never been any penetration or infiltration of the.: White House by CIA," Nessen said. "Any CIA employe at the White House on duty or on detail is or was here with the complete knowledge of the White House." Prouty said he wanted a contact in the White House and talked with Hunt about it over lunch. "Look, we'll have no trouble getting into that White House," he quoted Hunt as saying. "My contact there is Butterfield." encies Federa Agree On Reform WASHINGTON (UPI) - A number of major federal agencies which regu-. late American business agree with President Ford: the system needs reform. Talking it over with Ford at a White House meeting Thursday, they piled examples: • - It takes more than 40 licenses from federal agencies to build a power plant on the Eastern seaboard. - It takes 8 to 10 years to build a nuclear power plant in the United States, twice as long as in Japan or Europe, in part because of heavy regulation. - Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz said he had been "shocked" to learn about a quarter of the Agriculture Department's 82,000 employes were involved in issuing or denying licenses, or as he put it. "putting people out of business." - John Robsori, chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board, said in general "the gestation period for regulatory decisions is figuratively near the age of pyaramids." - Federal Power Commission Chairman John Nassikas said "the free mar- ket can undoubtedly do a far superior job" of managing power than his agency. He urged deregulation of new natural gas. Ford repeated to the representatives of 10 regulatory agencies a theme he has been stressing recently - that government regulation often inhibits competition and causes higher prices for consumers and that reforms are needed. f 'l believe the government should intrude in the free market only when Atom Smasher Funds At Washington U. Dry ST. LOUIS (UPI) - Effective next April 30, the governments will suspend federal financing for the Washington University atom smasher, which was part of the Manhattan Project. Arthur C. Wahl, radiochemistry professor at the university and codiscov- erer of plutonium, said Thursday the contract involved $200,000 to $250,000. Money -for 1 three major nuclear research projects at the school also had been suspended. well-defined social objectives can be obtained by such intervention, or when inherent monopoly structures prevent a free competitive market system from operating," Ford said. "Government should foster rather than frustrate competition. It should seek to insure maximum freedom for private enterprise." He urged the officials to make more analyses of how much their operations, cost compared to the benefits, to try to reduce delays and to be more responsive to consumer interests. , .; Since many of-the regulatory- 1 agencies are independent of the execu-. live branch, Ford cannot give them or- • ders. He can, a : nd is expected to, ask Congress for legislation to carry out reforms. The agency representatives generally agreed their operations need im- 'provement. They said many of the causes are beyond their control, such as a workload that has increased two- to five-fold in 10 years, frequent lawsuits against them and court decisions that have expanded their responsibilities.
