Frankfort, Ky. a- (AP) -- The relation-
ship of the poor defendants and the
criminal courts will be investigated by

should begin a drive to eliminate dis»

is already serving a life sentence of
povertyo I've seen an arrested persons

long as a year aWaiting trialo This
practice is contrary to our belief that
a man is innocent until proven guilty."

Breathitt said a defendantVs pretrial
release should be determined by the
nature of the crime and the character of
the defendant, not by moneyo

Kentucky judges have power to release
without bail defendants who give their
word they will appear for trialo This
procedure is not followed‘often because
no machinery exists to conduct pretrial

"I am hopeful this task force will be
able to develop a plan whereby a judge

"Once a judge has this information» he

is in good position to determine whether

Some 55 inmates of the Kentucky'State
Penitentiary are pushing toward complex
tion of one of the biggest domiteyourw
-self jobs in Commonwealth historye

The project at the penitentiaryg under
the general supervision of warden Luther
Thomas» is a twomstory brick and masonry
building of. generous proportions which
will be used for education and recreaw
tiono L

The 'first floor will be devoted abnost
entirely to educationo It will house a
hOwbybéo foot library and reading roomg
an office for the principal and 10 class
rooms, each 2€pbym26 feeto

On the' second floor there will be a
72mby=lhh foot auditorimg which,9 with
bleachers and ohairss will seat 980
peepleo ‘This big rooms with a small
stages can be used for plays and meetm
ingso With chairs removeda it will be
suitable to basketball and other Sportso

Mro Everett Cherry9.Athletic Director at
the prisons says the following equipment
has been .requested for the new gymo A
boxing rings basketballsa weight lifts
and wall pulleysg volley ballsa and a
trampoline The request also includes
various, pieces of gymnastic equipment.
"There is an outside chance that we may
obtain a few pairs of roller skates
alsoom said.Mr. Cherryo

The new building at the north end of the
_10wacre prison compound is being erected
the warden said» at a cost of about
$15090009 with the use of inmate labor
and materials salvaged from buildings
Which were razed when the major portion
of Eddyville was relocated to make room
for Barkley Lake.

The some 55 prison inmates who have been
working on construction of the building
since it began in August 1962, get 8
cents a dayo The bricks some steel.9 and
window frames were salvaged from the old

Eddyville elementary and high school
building and the Eddyville Baptist

Had the contract for the building been
given to a private firm, warden Thomas
saidg the cost 'would have been about
$25090009 The prison crew is working
under the direction of Ancil weir, an
independent9 outside construction mane
Weir and two corrections officers are
the only outside paid employeeso

The warden said one of the most valuable
rewards the prison inmates gain from the
construction is the training they get.
Trades involveds ‘Weir saids includes
steelworkg brick masonryg carpentry;
concrete finishingg paintingg plumbing
and electrical worko Target date for
completion is this Augusto

weir said some of the men have progress”-
ed surprisingly wello From the 55 ine
mates who have worked on the buildingg
Weir said he had culled several "lead
mono“ He could ”confidently recommend"
thesea he saids for similar work outside
prisono He thinks at least 50 percent9
of the men working on the building could
hold down outside jObSo

That is one reason that warden Thomas
gave for encouraging the group in their
work0 He noted that prison policy now
is to attempt to fl"rehabilitate and re»
motivate" the men rather than to push
than into the back end of a prison, and
then forget them as fast as possible.

Henry Cowans superintendent of the pris~
on school at Eddyvilles is delighted
with the prosPect of new quarterse
Presentlys he saidg there is only "a one
room school in the old structure used as

WHY AA IN’PRISON? an by Richard Racine

Here at Kentucky State Penitentiary we
have an Alcoholic Anonymous Group which
meets every Sunday from 1350 to 5:00 PM;
It is appropriately named the Hopeful

The purpose of this Avo Group is to
help the inmate who has a drinking probw
lemo We try to help each other with our
problemss and do something constructive
about it while we are hereo Then, when
we are releasedg we h0pe to continue in
an Avo group in our home town and con»
tinue to help ourselveso

The group is well namedg because it does
give a man hope. We have the living
proof of what Avo can do for a person.
We see this living proof each week in
the outside guests who come to visit use
They tell us of their success and failw
arcs in lifee we can see our own lives
through the experiences of these men.
This encourages us who are confinedo
This is an encouragement to all who are
sincere in their battle to overcome ale
cohol and the pitfalls that it bringso
Those who are sincere know that if other
people can overcome a drinking problem»
so can theyo

This attitude will help a man today, as
well as in the futureo It will help us
to be a better man and a better citizen;
it will give us a chance to prove to
ones self that there is hope we even for
a person like myself.

Next to being released, the best thing a
man in prison can get is a letter.
Visits are nice of course, but they are
often next to impossiblea Distance9

transportation, etco, all help to make
visits difficult nu but letters? For
fiVe cents you can send a letter, prob»

ably the cheapest gift of happiness anym
one can purchases

The content of a letter is usually not
the most important thing to a man in
prison, but just the fact that someone
on the outside cared enough to spend a
few minutes of their time to let him
know they still think of him: A man in
prison doesnfit necessarily want to hear
news of earthushaking events, for this
he can read in the paperso He wants to
hear about the things he misses the most
w- his wife, children, family, even to
hear that the family dog has pups.

Probably the quietest time of day in
prison is at "Mail Calla" It‘s quiet
because each man is waiting to hear
those magic words calledc . 0 his names
When he doesn't receive a letter, it’s
going to be just another dull day or
night, whichever the case may bee Spent
with only his thoughtso These thoughts
usually stick much to a pattern: What
can be wrong? Is someone ill? Doth
they care about me any more? Is some»
body fooling with my mail? You think

this sounds insane? Believe me, it is
noto More than once I have heard these
very thoughts expressed, and they usuale

ly don't stop there. The biggest share
of a man's time in prison is spent
thinking and it's quite easy to literal-
ly 'make a mountain out of a mole hill.‘

Letters are a man3s greatest assurance
that he is still a part of the human
race» It is also a well known fact that

men who have some sort of contact with
the outside world are the ones who try
harder to do something about helping
themselveso Why not? It may not be the
best thinking but it is very easy for a
man in prison to assume the attitude:
"No one cares for me, why should I
for myself?" Almost all men must have a

.goal outside of themselves to work for.

The same principal applies to men at
war, not many fight just for the sake of
fighting. Their reasons may be many and
varied, but it is almost a surety that
they are not 'doing it for their own
benefit. ‘

Undoubtly you have seen the term "for-
gotten men" used when someone is writing
about prisoners. Is that what society
wants? Because a man has wronged —~
just forget that he exists? I don't
think 309 The Indiana State Prison has
started a program whereby the 'forgotten
men’ receive visits and letters from
people who are interested in a man's
welfare and morale. At the outset these
people were strangers to the inmates
they visited, but according to the arti~

cles that I have read the effects are
If total strangers take the time to

write to men in prison, can family and
friends do any leSS?

 POEMS aaaaa by Robert L. Chasteen



When I was just a little child
You cared so much for me3

Youfid hold my hand, and carry me
AS though I could not 8660

I loved you so very much

You were always my hercg

You took me fishingg took me froging
You took me everywhere yoqu goo

I guess you thought as I grew older

I know that you care much for me
You have always done your parts
IVm glad that youire my father» Dad
I love you with all my hearto




Someday honeys, Daddy9s coming home
To be with you every daya

To help with things a Daddy should
And watch you while you plays

walk you to the corner store

To buy an ice cream coneg

To share a life thatls full of joy
While singing a happy songs

Take you to the swimming pool
Or just take you for a ride,
Everything you want me for
1911 be right by your sideo

we will always be together
I love you with all my hearts
May God above bless our days

So weVll never have to part.


I wish I had a Special gift
For every special day,

Iid give it to a lovely girl
And wish her a Happy Birthday.

You wonder why she's so Special
Wells then I‘ll tell you so,
Because I love her very much
And she loves me I kHOWo

Her eyes are blue like the Heavens
And her lips are sweet as wine,

Her hair is longs and black as coal
And her heart is warm and kindo

Her kiss is like a reduhot flame

With love like a rolling seas

I thank God you belong to meo



Each Week I look forward to
A letter from you my Dears

A scent that I'll remember
As long as I stay goneo

So please keep writing Darling
Your letters mean so muchs
I feel so very close to you

Just holding something you've touched¢




 THE HOT SEAT me ~— (An event that could
happen to any prisoner in any institu-
tion.) --CRs--


It wasn't so much the thought, but the
waiting, that ate into oneVs insides.
The constant gnawing of guilt the knowl-
edge that you had committed a vicious
crime, was a burden in and of itself.
There was no way that you could condone
the act that you had committed against
societyo Why, in a moment of stress,
couldnit you control your inner emom
tions? What beudldering feature in your
makewup caused you to be what you are?
All these thoughts ran through your mind
as you sat there waitingo

Your train of thoughts are rudely broken
when you see a figure appear in the
doorways Yes, it is timel You arise
and gently shake yourself mentally, pull
your shoulders back and prepare yourself
for the shooko You walk slowly down the
hall and through the door into a small
rooms As you enter, you stand silently
looking beyond the glare of lights into
the faces that are turned toward the
door as you enter» Determined that you
will show no fear, that you will not
quaver, you walk resolutely to the chair
and having arrived there you slowly
settle your weak and faltering body into

You look silently at the circle of faces
as if you are searching for an answer
and then your gaze settles slowly and
inevitably upon the stern face of one
person who is seated directly facing

He rises slowly, looks around at the
others, as if for encouragement, and
then again facing you says: "John.Doe,
Number l23h5, you are hereby granted
parole at this hearingo That is allo"



Refrain from worrying about the after
effects of death or the probability of a
life beyond the grave» Cope with the
life you are now living and you will
have nothing to fear in any othere


CRY ME A RIVER, Mr. Editor --


Some people have an idea that putting
out a magazine is easy. From our own
experience, and from what we hear other
editors tell, it's really no picnic.
Try pleasing all the readers at the same
time ~— next to impossible!

If we print jokes, some readers say we
are plain silly. If we don't print
jokes, some say we are altogether too
sericus o

If we reprint something good from anoth-
er magazine, we are told that we are too
lazy to write the stuff ourselves. If
we don‘t reprint, then, alas, we are
told we are trying to hog all the space
for our own lousy articleso

If we stick close to the typewriter all
day, we are told we ought to be out
hunting up good StOTiGSe When we do go
out and hustle for material, we are told
we ought to stick to the jObo

If we don't print some guy's stuff, we
are accused of failing to recognize true
genius. If we do print it, someone will,
say the magazine is filled with junk.

If we fix up what the other fellow
writes, make it a little more readable,
then we are being too criticalo If we
don't fix up the guy‘s stuff, correct
his EngliSh and Spell the words correctm
1y, we are accused of being asleep on
the jObo
