been adequate to meet the de

Deathbed Will Complete
TACOMA; Wash., March 29.
Albert Wicks is back at the Mc
Neil island: federal prison after
having gone with a guard to
Leeds, Utah, to the deathbed of
his father, James Madisor. Wicks.
The son will finish his sentence
next August and at that time he
will return to Leeds to claim the
$50,000 estate his father left.
The case of Wicks is one of the
strangest ever recorded at the Mc
Neil island prison. He had not
seen his father in many years and
was found after a nation-wide
search. Prison authorities' have
refused to divulge the crime for
which Wicks is serving sentence
and he has declined to reveal his
past between the time he left his
father years ago and the discov

Science was called to the aid of
possemen searching the woods in
the vicinity of Aunisville for five
of the six convicts who escaped
from the state prison in a daring
daylight break for freedom Friday
morning, when full descriptions
and warnings were broadcast from
the Oregonian radio tower last
night under the direction of Ward
Irvine, private secretary to Gov
ernor Walter M. Pierce.
Each of the five men was care
fully described by the broadcaster,
and a warning included by Ward
en A. M. Dairy m pie concerning
the dangerous character of the
men who are the object of the
greatest manhunt in this district
for several years. All towns,
north, south-and west, have beeBi"new snow fell which at the'bpen-

Food and clothing were ob
tained Friday night from the
Spier & Sons' store at Aumsville
despite every effort to keep a
sharp lookout. Owing to the na
ture of the loot it 19 believed the
men have either joined forces or
have some common meeting point
for a complete check of the loot
revealed the following articles
Five pairs of shoes, 2 brown
coveralls, 2 or 3 pairs of blue
overalls, 2 brown hats, 2 blue and
2 khaki shirts, 2 boxes 12-guage
shotgun, shells loaded with No. 5
shot, 2 flashlights, 6 flashlight
batteries, 4 pounds of cookies, 8
pounds of cheese, 15 to 20 cans of
canned goods, 8 or 10 pocket
knives, 4 pounds of tobacco and
half a dozen suits of underwear.
Having obtained supplies and
possibly successful in , arming
themselves, it is expected that a
battle will ensue when convicts
meet with possemen. Since the
men have been identified by sev
eral Aumsville residents, including
P. B. Hewett, garage man, and A.
F. Clark, editor of the Aumsville
Record, no one has reported as
having seen the men since 5:30
o'clock Friday afternoon.
Approximately 100 possemen
and farmers are taking an active
part in th emanhunt and are beat
ing the brush between Aumsville
and the Santiam river, where it is
believed the men are headed and
that there are at least three of
the five in this district. Two were
reported by the Southern Pacific

Weekly and Tom Murray. Wil
liam Johnson, the sixth man, was
captured by Lute Savage, veteran
guard at the prison, in the brush
near the John Smith ranch about
5 o'clock Friday.
While every effort has been
made to keep continuous watch
upon all bridges leading across the
Santiam, the fact that the posse
men, a mojority of whom-.have
never participated in- a- hunt of
this kind,, are prone to take things
in their own hands, may prove re
sponsible for permitting the men
to slip through the cordon.
