Sample text

CLYDE BARROW WAS not taken directly to Huntsville to serve his fourteen-year sentence but was kept in the Waco Jail, apprehensively awaiting the arrival of Bud Russell, the chief transfer agent of the Texas prison system. Russell, a large, kindly man, was known affectionately as Uncle Bud by the Texas underworld. Bonnie Parker certainly knew about Uncle Bud, for Clyde referred to him several times in his letters to her while he was waiting in the Waco Jail. Uncle Bud eventually called for Clyde on April 21, 1930.

He remembered, years later, how Bonnie had told him that she would like to be a singer, an actress, or even a poet. Bonnie left her job at the cafe on Houston Street just as the Great Depression was starting and even in prosperous Dallas unemployment was rising. She could not find another job. She returned to a life spent mostly at home, enlivened only by occasional movie shows, dates, and visits to friends. In January, 1930Bonnie,still withoutajob, wenttostaywith a girlfriend in West Dallas. Her friend had a broken arm and Bonnie was helping with the housework.

The discipline was strict and, despite Governor Simmons's reforms, sometimes brutal. Illegal whippings still occasionally occurred. Clyde's gang was made to run the two miles to and from their work, and the bat could be vigorously applied for any transgression. According to Nell Cowan, Clyde was beaten for complaining that the "pace set for chopping cotton was too fast for him" and again when he was accused of passing a note to his sister during a visit to the Eastham prison farm. Such treatment must have been particularly painful for a young man who as a boy had never been disciplined by his parents and had always been spoiled and petted by his older sister.
