Three guards had been held as hostages, but were rescued un- harmed in this fourth major out- break in the prison this year. The rebel convicts, described as "extremely desperate" long-term- ers, holed themselves up in Wing No. 7 upon their return from their evening meal, and, after locking 300 feUpw inmates in another sec- tion, tried sawing their way to freedom, one of the hostages said. But they gave up in their escape attempt when their makeshift hack- saws failed them. Rebellious Band Shouting defiance to prison of- ficials, the rebellious band pro- ceeded to break up portions of the wing. But a preliminary examina- tion of the cell block showed that there was no serious damage. The door to the wing was forced partially open by correction offi- j cers, and one of them managed to squirm through. He was covered by submachine-gun fire. Other guards followed and forced their way up each of the five tiers of cells. Correction officers gained con- trol of the wing, and the overhead blasts of machine-gun fire ended the rebellion two hours after it started. The rioters were placed in segregation cells. 'public Sympathy' Acting Warden Lloyd W. Mc- Corkle said the convicts were try- ing "to gain public sympathy for the men in segregation as a result of the previous riots." Reports also circulated that the convicts rioted in s demand for better living con- ditions, including television.

Van Fleet made his comments at a divisional com- mand outpost while touring the Western Front. The fighting on and around White Horse was still the main action along the 155-mile battle- front.
