soners to “step out”. This the
men refused to do when it was
obvious to the tightly packed
group that the warden was reel

dered ‘Pee '.Vee’ Willie Bell to
step out “because I’m going to
kill you”. When Bell refused this
order the warden sent for some
pick handles. A few minutes later
the intoxicated warden spoke to J
County Police Chief Henderson,
who got into his car and drove to
Brunswick, sixteen miles away,
returned with the machine gun,
the warden reeled into the packed
prisoners “holding his pistol with
both hands” to get Pee Wee. A
few moments later the shooting
began. The survivors insisted that
the police took part in the shoot

police. One investigator was cer

Camp No. 18 strode into a group
of unruly Negro convicts at about
4:30 o’clock yesterday afternoon,
Willie Bell a long-timer and re

his pistol and immediately half a ]
dozen ottier armed prison guards
opened fire on the convicts with
shotguns and prstois.
"A few seconds later the firing

by Warden Worthy, the prisoners
broke in an directions, men
scra-mbled under the nearby bunk

the house and had to be dragged
out, and the fifth managed to

He was shot climbing the fence
and fell dead on the outside.
"The wounded lay where they

knock you right out.
The party jumped when the

Rumors are flying that Buster
Robbins is not going South for
nothing. So I hear its a blue bird
over cliffs of What Bells. Ring
Rang Ring Ha!!
Is it true that D. M. quit work
or is she just on one of her long I
vacations. You know. Kid you
can't get rich that way. Can she?
It leaked out that Billyy C. will
be hitched soon. Good luck Kid. ;
If you see Jack West walking
around with stars in his eyes, you
can cr’dt it to one thing—hislove :
for P. Reed.
