One Dead, 4 Wounded In Reformatory Rioting BUENA VISTA, Colo, (iP-An inmate of the Colorado State-Reformatory was shot to death and four others were wounded Tuesday night in a wild, 45 -minut« riot by 125 prisoners. They were locked inside a cell block with 3 guards but soon 60 officers, armed and shooting, broke it up. Warden Opens Fire Warden James S. Thomas opened fire first. "It was going really bad by the time I arrived," Thomas said later. "I saw what had to be done, and I set the example. I started firing." In the turmoil of flying chairs, swinging fists, bunk fires and passing bullets, Evaristo Gomel, 28, was killed. Three other inmates in the thick of the fight were shot in the leg and a bullet hit another In his finger. Two guards were beaten unconscious. One of them, Robert Allinger. 47, threw the lock that prevented any of the youths from fleeing. He and guard Sam Montgomery, 45, were then badly beaten. They were marching more than 200 of the camp's nearly 400 inmates into the cell block after dinner and recreation! Many were still outside the cell block when those inside suddenly grabbed chairs and began pummelling the two guards with their fists and clubs. "There are about IB cells on each of the 3 tiers on each side." Allinger recalled later. "About 30 or 40 boys actually started it all. Burning Everything "They threw down mattresses; from their cells and set them on! fire. They were burning up any-; thing that was loose, even the i guard desk. "I was unarmed. I closed the door when the trouble started so they couldn't get out. Then we started fighting them. I picked up a table leg and started swinging. I was knocked unconscious. "But before I went down I saw Gomez hitting another officer with a club." Allinger, a guard for 20 years, and Montgomery were treated later at a hospital in Salida. They were reported in fair condition. The cause of the riot was not determined immediately but Gov. Steve McNichols said he understood the prisoners "believed they were being worked too hard." 12 Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, Aug. 28, 1957 Rev. George B.
