Did Convicts Have Helpers On Outside? FBI Thinks So As Hunt Continues SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The three convicts who fled Alcatraz Island prison in San Francisco Bay may have had outside help, it was reported today. The San Francisco Examiner said it has learned .from a reli- able source that the FBI is work- ing on the theory the three men made it over the cold, swirling waters to the mainland and is checking on recent visitors to the prison. A widening search by govern- ment agents is strengthening spec- ulation the 'Anglin, 32. his brother, Clarence, 31, and Frank Morris, 35, may have engi- neered the first successful escape from the 28-year-old maximum security institution. Since the disappearance was discovered early Tuesday, heavily armed soldiers, now numbering 200, have been combing Angel Island in the possibility the con- victs may 'have landed there on a driftwood raft in their flight from Alcatraz 1% miles-to the south. Alcatraz is 1% miles north of the San Francisco shoreline. A fourth convict was reported in on the escape plot but didn't flee. He was identified as Allen Clayton West of Atlanta, Ga. The four used spoons to chisel loose ventilator covers leading to a service passage behind their cells. From there the Anglin brothers and Morris climbed up a pipe, over a roof and a fence and then down to the water's edge. Warden Olin Blackwell said Tuesday he didn't believe the men could have made it to freedom by swimming without aid.

(AP) Testi- mony from Billie Sol Estes opened new avenues for investigation in the mystery death of an Agricul- ture Department official, Dist. Atty. Bryan Russ said Wednesday night. Russ said he will subpoena three or four additional witnesses before the Robertson County grand jury holds its next session Monday. The grand jury is investigating the fatal shooting June 3, 1961, of Henry H. Marshall, 52, who was of the Agricultural and Conservation state chief Stabilization _.__ Committee. They questioned Es- tes, erstwhile farm financier, for nearly two hours Wednesday. None of his testimony was made public. "From his testimony some new avenues have opened up that we have to go said Russ. He declined to name the pro- questions at a rate of more than one a minute. Wilson said Estes refused to an- swer about 100 questions on the ground of possible self-incrimina- ion. Because of the answers "and lack of them" from Estes, the at- torney general said.he.would in- tensify his investigation of Estes' business affairs. Estes has been indicted on charges of fraud and theft linked to his multi-million- dollar sales of liquid fertilizer. Estes' cotton, grain storage and fertilizer empire is in receiver- ship.

Bruce Co. and became its president, made company check withdrawals amounting to between May 28 through June 4. It was on May 28 that the stock market started its downward plunge. What happened to.'.the money has not been determined. Manhattan Dist. -Atty., Frank S. Hogan is looking into the with- drawals. Early Tuesday night the K. L. Bruce firm, a leading manufac- turer of hardwood floorin, re- leased a statement saying Gilbert voluntarily had. disclosed the un- j authorized withdrawals and that he had resigned. The company quoted Gilbert as saying his actions .were directed to "the protection of an acquisi- tion' program on behalf of the corporation and, in myrjudgment; were in the best interests of-the corporation, and-its-stockholders." E. L. Bruce Jr., chairman the company, ordered a complete audit of the firm's books.
