"Ton mean there were so many you could not count them""' ' Yes." "Fifty or ion?"' "Yes.' . Officers Present at Beatings Hell asserted that some of the men beaten were just out of the hospital; that on one occasion he was ordered io bat s man in the presence of mith and five other iVfieers and that an officw was generally present m hen a man was thrashed. Wheii men were beaten so badly thev were cov ered with blood, h" said, they were' taken out into the yard and the hose played on them. Sergeant itell claimed that he had :io ! choice, because Smith threatened that if he did not obey orders he, himself, would be turned over to :he prisoners, and that he knew they would kill him. "Iid the colonel know about these1' thing,?'' he was asked. "The colonel was in it as much as anyone els?. If he didn't see things he must have had baiKeyesitht." i The mns! sensational testimony of! ihp, hearing was given by Joseph G.

Promised Better Treatment After he had been in this prison some weeks, Colonel Maul was appointed commandant, as the men understood, a reformer. Ryszelewski said Colonel Haul addressed tlie men on his arrival and promised tbem that "if a man did right" lie would be treated well. On the strength of this promise Rys zelewski wrote, an article describing conditions which he labelled "the School for Bolshevism" , and handed it to the commandant. He said the next day he was brought before him and sentenced to three months solitary con finement, for one month of which he was handcuffed.
