Rocky Thomas and his son, Deni-
son contractors, two years ago, es-
caped from the Oklahoma state
penitentiary at McAlister this
morning;, according to reports re-
ceived in Denison shortly after
Kuykedall was captured as he
lay in hiding in a barn loft, short-
ly after he had released the Den-
ison contractors, by Grayson and
Dallas county officers. He sur-
rendered after the barn top had
been literally shot off by machine
gun and automatic rifle fire.
Denison officers are on look-
out for Kuykendall, reported com-
ing toward Denison in a stolen
automobile with a penitentiary
guard as hostage. The guard
was take prisoner as the desperado
fled the Oklahoma jail.
Oklahoma officer,3 staging the
largest manhunt since the Pete
Traxler roundup several weeks
ago, expressed doubt Kuykendall
would attempt to enter Texas
through Denison, beliieving ho

Non-Union Men Start Erection Of
Pig Stand; Union Men Refuse Job
i . To Finish It Unless It's Torn Down

PITTSBURGH—Workmen are
busy tearing down a recently part-
ly constructed pig stand, in order
that they might start all over
again and this time do it with on-
ly union labor.
The reason for the action is
that union men refuse to build
the remainder of the stand for
the fact that non-union men
started it. However, they are
wil ling to tear the stand down.
The idea is that they will not
touch anything polluted by non-
union men unless they can touch
it in their own way—they will
had'je it to tear it down, but won't
handle it to build it up.

The discovery of fuel oil, while
giving an impetus generally to
manufacturers in Texas and pro-
viding an additionali source of
wealth for its people, has marked
radical change in the fact that
it has reduced almost to a mini-
mum the discomforts and incon-
veniences of rail travel. Nowhere
is this more noticable than on the
Southern Pacific and H. & T. C.
lines in the state. Nearly every
passenger locomotive is equip-
ped with the oil* burning appara-
attending a national covention in

A number have asked us in the
past two days just who is going

away, despite what the Cat

key on their back. Denison might
come up and take it, but its very
unlikely isasmuch as there isn't
enough Conatser class around. If

we'd put our chips on the Jackets
