They are the escapees from the last detention session administered by Assistant Principal Frank Janes on the day before graduation at Washburn H.S. in June, 1956. They climbed out of a window of the third floor room in which they were being held and were last seen heading south on foot. They missed the graduation ceremonies and have not been seen since until being captured last month. It was due to the untiring perseverance of Warden Leroy Siegel in his part time position of undercover investigator, as he pursued these perpetrators for almost 48 years, that they have been captured as they ate in a Florida restaurant. They will be brought back to Washburn to serve out the remainder of their detention. It is expected that there will be little tension between these "older" detainees and the currently enrolled students as members of the returning group "are pretty friendly for the most part". They have all expressed remorse and have promised to "never do that again". It is suspected that some have signed on to this declaration, not because they have reformed, but because they can't climb out of a window anymore.   Story by Jim Harris
