Is Prison Trusty
Former Gunman Saves Life
of Fellow Prisoner No
Longer Despises Rules
Lincoln. July II. (Special.)
Charlie Morley. only survivor of the
trio, headed by "Shorty" Gray, who
shot their way to brief liberty 10
years ago by killing a warden and
several guards, saved the life of a
fellow convict and took another rtep
toward making amends to society
for his numerous crimes.
Recently Warden Fenton decided
to withdraw punishment from all
prisoners for breach of prison rules
and "the deadlock" cells were emp
tied. In the deadlock cell was

man, who was once paroled and while
on parole held up and robbed a

Floth had not been out of dead

knife and started to assault a prisoner
against whom he had a grudge. Mor
ley rushed toward the men and saved
the prisoner from death. Floth is
back in "deadlock."
For years Morley bore on unenvi-
ble reputation in the prison as a
fighter and despiser of authority. He
always had been a drug addict and

gave him another opportunity to

access to the prison yard inside the
walls. He carries messages for
overall officials and not once so far
has the mean temper and disregard
of prison rules displayed itself.
