You are looking at Bill Hart in jail with Dick Mericle and Lester Hahn outside the jail in beards. It's another Bluffton centennial photo from 1961. Bill is in jail because he didn't grow a beard and failed to purchase a permit to allow him to shave.

Leland Gerber took this photo. Check the shadow made by Leland.You can see the round flash unit on his camera.
