Transcript Jail Break! Inmates escape during downpoor yy ind, accompanied by buckets of rain, leveled the Alpha Phi Omega jail causing early release of all prisoners. The national services fraternity sponsered the "lock up" to raise money for muscular dystrohy. About 40 students and some 20 faculty members participatedz before the afternoon downpoor. While doing time in the slammer, Janice Hutchinson, assistant anthropology professor, sat at a table in the jail, did paper work for the fundraiser, and phoned for more donations, fraternity President Edit Esquenazi said. w T Y hile being locked up, members of Alpha Phi Omega made signs encouraging students and faculty to donate money. All proceeds of the event went to Jerry's Kids. Photo by Kyle Saenz. The jail was great way to involve more students, Esquenzai said. "Before the rain and heavy winds many students wandered up to ask why there were people tied to a jail cell," he said. Foul weather and the collapsing jail, however, caused the warden to parole all prisoners early, Esquenzai sia. Fund raising did not end there though, T-shirts were sold and donations were solicited. One jailbird, Belinda Garza, said, "It was fun being behind bars and it was worth it to help such a good cause." Over all, the day was a success, event Chair Victor Koosh said. "By the end of the day we planned to have earned $1,000 from the lock up, pledge and phone donations. "This was the first time that we had used a lock up as a fund raiser and we really weren't experienced ro prepared for any mishaps like the rain and wind destroying the jail," Garza said. "It was worth all the time and effort, but next year we are going to be prepsred for everything and anything," he said. - Marilyn Richards ^ason Struby tries to convince friends and passers-by to contribute donations.
