SEARCH FOR GAOL ESCAPEE
Every available policeman is searching for Maxwell Karl Skin- ner, who made a sensational es- cape from Pentridge gaol yester- day.
Skinner, whose escape has been described as the most sen- sational ever made in Victoria, scaled a 20ft. wall separating the remand yard from the prison farm and ran 200 yards across the farm to an outer wall.
He then climbed up the stop to an unmanned watch-tower
and jumped to the street out- side.
Two warders fired at him, but their shots went astray.
