Gardner Describes His Plan of
Escape to Scenario Writer and
Carries it Out in Exact Detail
SEATTLE, Wash., June 11. Roy (iardner, master
train robber, who, with Morris II. Pyron, escaped from
their guards on a California train at Castle Rock, Wash.,
early today, outlined in detail his plan to escape and
then proceeded to carry out the derails, according to Miss
Sada Cowan of Los Angeles, motion picture scenario
writer, who talked with the convict on the train yes
terday. Miss Cowan, upon her arrival here today said she
talked with the two men and that Gardner had given
her his plan for escape, as the outline for a scenario.
"He declared he would get the guard at the unex
pected time," Miss Cowan said, "and told me in the pres
ence of his guards that he did not intend to "go to Mc
Neil's. He said he would watch his chance and I would
get my next thriller 'straight from the main heavy."'
When they parted for the night Gardner said "sorry
I can't tell you just when I'm going I'd like to say good
bye," Miss Cowan related and later in the night she was
awakened by the two guards, handcuffed together and
discussing their plight in whispers outside her berth.
