Two convicts, Delmar Clair Grett, 29, and Wayne Clyde Jenkins, 23, from the Medium Security Prison at Huttonsville escaped in Marlinton Sunday afternoon after they played in a ballgame here (they won). Dogs found them on the Stillwell hill Sunday night but they escaped toward the river and hadn’t been found Wednesday.
