Jail Conditions and
It seems almost a miracle that disease
is not more prevalent and that some of the prisoners do
not actually die from the effects of a term in jail and
such would be the condition if not for the care of Deputy
Sheriff Plummer, who has charge of the jail. The cage is
scrubbed thoroughly once and often twice daily with
disinfectants used liberally. Two prisoners are in the
jail suffering from gunshot wounds; Harry Needles, who
was shot in the leg at Springfield while endeavoring to
escape from an officer, and Jim McAfee, who was wounded
in the leg and shoulder in an attempted holdup at Joplin.
McAfee concealed the fact that he was wounded until he
was on his way to Carthage and stuffed tobacco into his
wounds to prevent bleeding. The tobacco cure seems to be
a good thing as he is recovering rapidly. Both men have
been furnished cots and are kept in the "bull
ring" or corridor which surrounds the cage.

I appreciated the help of the

My uncle didnt like
to have more than one food type on his plate
at a time. I notice that most who enjoy the
various buffets around town dont have
that hang up. Course there does seem ta
be a pattern that some adhere to.
There is the natural
tendency to always put the bread or roll on
top of the heap Ive noticed. Some like
ta use the bread for soppin. Ya
dont see much of this in restaurants,
mainly at the kitchen table durin
Some foods just work
together I guess. Pork and beans, ham and
beans, anything and beans. Why not pork and
corn or ham and peas? There is corned beef,
but I dont think that counts.
I think its more
habit that taste. Course most of us
have more bad than good in both categories.
This is some fact, but

ART NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
The current exhibition here at
Hyde House gallery is work by five artists from
the Colored Pencil Society of America, and two
junior/student artists. I am pleased to tell you
that they are Natasha Petersen and Fredy Garibay.
Both of these are students at Carthage High
School and were present at the opening. Natasha
was born in Russia and relocated to Missouri in
1994. She says, "I really enjoy mixing the
ability of colors and complete control of the
medium. Colored pencils are very blend-able and
portable where paints can sometimes be
cumbersome, and Prismacolor offers a high
quality, realistic shine that brings out the many
different images I have in my work." This
artist has six pieces in the exhibition. Fredy
Gariday says, "After trying many mediums
this one stood out, as I really enjoy using it
for the great flexibility and ability to create a
more defined color." These two young artists
are in our Member Gallery currently, and all the
work will again be shown this weekend, noon to
5:00 at Hyde House. artCamp registrations are
coming in very slowly, so if you have intentions
of sending yours back, please do so as soon as
possible. I have now identified 14 Joplin members
that probably have received some damage from the
recent storms, and we mailed a letter to each of
these asking for their status and what we might
do to help. One of our artCamp teachers, Martha
Goldman, emailed me today that she experienced
complete loss of property after riding out the
tornado in her closet inside her rental home. I
hope that we hear from the remaining 13 members,
and that they have better news than Martha did!
Come out and see our current exhibition this
