WEDNESDAY EVENING, APRIl 2), 1932 Hold Back Prison Rioters Armed guards stand ready to shoot, on sight any prisoners attempting to escape from Cejl Block 15 (center) of the Michigan prison at Jackson, Mich., where .rioting convicts were turned back by State Police last night as they attempted to seize the ,pri son armory.

The barricaded felons, using the lives of 1Q prison guard hostages ss a . bargaining weapon, meantime demanded that CJov. G: Mennen Williams enter peace negotiations. State Police upset a plot of the mutineers to smash into a tunne leading from their fortress Cel Block 15 to the prison administration building. The administration building contains the prison's big arsenal. Convicts ripped off a metal cover over a tunnel entrance within Block 15. A sound of banging anc clattering gave tnVn away and a score of. rifle-carrying state police and guards rushed into the tunne to nip the escape attempt. Negotiations resumed.. after midnight peace hid to the hold-out convicts 'from Warden Julian .N Frisbie. -There were signs prison heads were willing to go along with some of the mutineers' demands. 1 Subsequently, came the demand for Governor Williams' participation. Earl Ward, insurrection leader, made the demand in a telephone talk from heseiged Bloci 15 to Deputy Warden George Bacon. Ward demanded the 'governor's signatiye to any agreement. ' For 10 minutes r this morning Ward 1 talked through a barred window with Dr. Vernon Fox, assistant deputy warden and prison psychologist. Afterwards,' Doctor Fox went to the prison kitchen, presumably to get food for the 173 block inmates, now going into the third day of their fierce holdovit. Demand Reforms · The holed-up convicts accused the prison system of "brutality" and demanded reforms in a number of phases of prison administration. "The demands are not unreasonable," Frisbie conceded, "but there are not grounds for some." He made the statement to a reporter as he waited for contact with cell block 15: Escaped Python Still At Large Near Mulberry Fort Smith, Ark.-OPj-An Indian 'python, 22 feet long, was absen without leave today from a carnival which has been appearing at nearby Mulberry. Its owner said the snake wasn't dangerous to humans or livestock But at Little Rock, Zoo Director Raymond Gray said he wasn't so sure about that. The which non-venemous r e p t i l e kills its prey with its crushing coils, apparently slithered out of its glass-topped cage at the Moore Shows sometime Tuesday night or early yesterday The' more daring residents of the. little village of Mulberry, armed with firearms, an'd heavj sticks, went snake hunting after the disappearance- was reported. Carnival Operator Joe Moore and Brown Harn, the snake's owner, said they thought the cage must have been accidentally left unlocked. Dogs and cats were locked indoors by owners fearful for their pets." Harn said the snake was harriV less except to birds and small animals. He asked that it not be killed. Gray said the well-fed pythons of captivity customarily'are docile and easily handled, but that a hungry python "won't riiscrim- nate in its choice of animals it "must come across." He declared that 'a 22-foot py- ,hon could, kill a grown cow--or a man. He recommended that anybody finding the snake might "try o worry it into a box or cage or use a net such as a fishing seine." "Or," he added, "you could use a snare or a lasso." No Indication Of Agreement In JTL Strike Management, Labor, Silent On Cause Of Sudden Walkout Philadelphia-m-Gen. Dwight* D. Eisenhower's whopping pop larity poll victory in the Pen sylvania primary prompted d mands by his backers today for lion's share of the state's 70 GO presidential nominating votes. But backers of Sen. Robert / Taft of Ohio, the general's chi opponent for the Republican nom inatfon, called the results "mean ingless" so far as the division convention votes is concerned. Eisenhower, c o m p l e t i n g h duties as NATO military com mander before returning to th United States, banged out wha may be on the final count 700,000-vote victory over Taft i the popularity race. Former Go\ Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota on the ballot with Eisenhower trailed in third place in the pr: mary election yesterday. It was a one-sidod contest from the start since'Taft kept his nam off the ballot and urged his back crs not to write it in. He said th results wouldn't affect the dele gate lineup. An Associated Press survey o the 70 GOP delegate candidates including 10 chosen previously a Inrge, indicated 19 lean towan Eisenhower, 17 favor Taft. and 2 are uncommitted, with seven con tests still undecided. In the Pittsburgh area, where Taft and Eisenhower slates met in the state's only head-on clash fo delegates, Eisenhower forces hac won five delegates and Taft one A Taft man was'leading for the seventh place and the eighth was in doubt. - Kefaurer Ltadi In the Democratic balloting, Sen Estes Kcfauyer. the Tennessee coonskin-cap 'campaigner continued his praclice of walking off The strike-bound Springdale | with'"popuiarTty"contcsts.' and Joplin, Mo., offices of Jones | But his preference primary vic- Truck Lines continued idle today j tory over President Truman, who following the 'Monday walkout by says he isn't running again, gave the company's drivers.

The unconfirmed report is that one of the issues in contract nego- iations, that precipitated a strike ome months ago between the drivers and Jones Truck Lines, oncerned a group insurance policy that covered the workers' amilies.

State Police h a d . t o ' f i r e volleys to get equipment into the prison yards to put out fires set by t'ne convicts. Before the. worst of the rioting was quelled, four state troopers were injured and three prison guards were -beaten. Sporadic' outbreaks in various cell blocks heightened tension yesterday. Violence broke out among the mutineers themselves as they purged their own group of dissenters and "stool-pigeons."
