Pages of History: Promise to cellmates leads man back to jail

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, May 1952.

He was just keeping a promise to his former cellmates at the county jail. William Harsha, 33, celebrated his first free evening Monday by bringing a couple of bottles of liquor, which were raised to the second story jail window by the men inside.

A flat of whiskey went up and slid through the bars. The fifth of wine proved too fat to go through, so the contents of the bottle were poured through the bars into a fruit jar.
