prison where one prisoner died, and
six other prisoners and a guard
were Injured in the fighting. All
were reported to be white.
The gas still was evident, but did
not Interfere with the tour.
Lt, Qcn. Oerow, commandant of
r"ort Leavenworth, of which the
barracks is a part, said the riot
grew out of racial trouble.
The trouble started late Thursday
when the white prisoners objected
to eating in the same mess hall with
the negroes. The men were detained
In their cells yesterday until noon
when they agreed to come out
peacefully and eat. They returned
to their Jobs In the afternoon, but
the smoldering trouble broke out
Into a night-long riot last night.
The first news of the difficulty
reached the outside when the army
sent a request to the Kansas City
police department at 4 o'clock this
morning for tear gas. A second call
followed two hours later.
