Dry. after his car was hit. told the men he wanted to take their license number. One of them told him to '"go aiiead" hut to "hurry up. as we've g-ot a dying man in here." "I saw one of tne men put a towel around the head of a man in the back seat." Dry said. Officers were hopeful that the car was the one the escaping criminals were in and that the wounded man was Hamilton. In the break, guards turned loose a barrage of sninfire on the fugitives, killing one man involved. He was Whitey Walker. Two other convicts who failed to surmount the walls. Charlie Frarier and Roy Johnson, serving life sentences, fell with bullets in their bodies, Frazier may not live. Officers believed that Hamilton and the other two who did succeed in getting: away did not lingrer j ions in Houston, if they were here-] Officers were inclined to think | the fugitives would head north for! one of their old hide-outs in ceri- j triil or north Texas, or possibly f even head into the sparsely settled 1 stretches of far West Texas. j Meanwhile, in the. prison Itself | an intensive investigation was j under way to ascertain just how a j p^>r of pistols were smuggled into j the orison to Frazier, who used I them 10 force a guard* TO open 1 <R-ath cells holding Hamilton, f Thompson and Palmer. EffortsJ "ere being made to learn the j identities of tne two "outside} men" who drove the cars up to the prison walls and p-icfced np the escaping men as they swarmed over TO free do IP. At Wichita. Falls, officers scur- rie 1 around trying to locate Marv O'Dare. sweetheart of Hamilton. i wb.o «ia*pi>*ar*4 from ti\*r* aud- d«nly. ; She bad been in Wichita. Fall* an hour after the : *cc&p* plot war carried out. Officer*, b«^ lieve she left to re-join, Hainilton- at some hideout and continue the love affair which she hoped. might lead to marriage with the .young Dallas desperado. Officers thought she might have some inlormatiion as ; to how the plot was conceived and who engineered it from the outside. Mary had talked Saturday night, of there being "hope, while there's life." The break occurred while a. baseball game between the prison team and the.Humble Oilers was in progress on the prison diamond. It was in the ninth inning, with the convicts leading 1 . 5 to 1. As' the pitcher started his wind-up, three shots were heard. The pitcher halted his throw abruptly, and the crowd jumped to its feet, realizing- something: extraordinary was going on. .Lei Brazil!, a guard inside the prison,, walked to Frazier's cell at 4:30 p. m. with the convict's evening meal Frailer Jammed a pistol against his side and displayed another in his left hand. Brazill. unarmed because of prison regulations, was marched into the •leath house. Lee Simmons, general manager of the prison system. launched an intensive investigation in an effort to determine how- the pistols were smuggled in to Frazier. who had the range of the prison yard. He notified officers witVria a. 200-mile radius of Huatsville Immediately after the break. Most of them already had good descriptions of the fleeing desperadoes since the fugitives frequently had been objects of a wide search. Simmons and Waid had left the baseball game and gone into the yard to see that everything was all right about 30 minutes before the break. The absence o± Frazier and Walker from the game had aroused their suspicion. Finding: the two outlaws in the tipper yard, however, and everything- quiet. the prison manager an«r «varden returned. It was the ninth, inning, Svifh the convicts leading 5 to 1. There were two out, two strikes and three balls and nearly 1,000 civilian spectators Baited tensely while- the convict pitcher wound up to deliver the ball. The pitcher stopped his abruptly. Three shots stillness. The crowd jumped to its feet, realizing that something Ava.s [ happening within tee "walls," I Several of the convict ball players [ shouted "play ball." the band started playing bur it did not drown out the sound of the volley of shots- Tie condition of Charlie Frailer was Improved Monciay. Re was badly shot in an abortive break several months ago but he recovered to try again. Physi- | cians said he had a good chance i to recover from his latest wounds. ! Graphic accounts of the escape and the battle on the walls -were .given by the guards on picket duty. Carey Bordeaux, who was held up by the convicts shielded I befcind McConnell. said he heard a commotion in the prison, yard and stepped out of his picket to ?ee -what was groins on. "As I stepped orrt,** he said. ~the convicts, shielded behind McConisell. pointed pruns at m«s and told me to drop my guns, and T did. Then they threw the ladder -up against the wall a.r.d "Raymond Hamilton was the first man j to come yj> it.
