Warden Maurice Sigler, cit
ing the documentary as the
finest he has heard in h i s
penology career, plans to use
the tape as part of his of
ficers' training school.
A resume of the documen
tary follows:
Inward Change
'"The purpose of imprison
ment," Warden Sigler empha
sized, "is not to rehabilitate
the criminal, but to produce
an inward change to help
him to prepare to return to
the world. We provide the cli
mate, the tools and leader
ship or encouragement that
enable men to improve them
selves vocationally and men
tally. Thus we make time
serve the man, not the man
serve time," Sigler continued.
Deputy Warden John Green
holtz added: "We also deal
with the psychopath and the
neurotic to whom the future
mean little. Unless a m a n
changes his moral perspec
tive, he will likely commit
crimes again."
The criminal's arrival
was described by Deputy
Warden Greenholtz: "For
three weeks be stays in a
reception center where he is
interviewed, where his case
history is recorded and stud
ied -and where he is briefed
on the program of the prison
what it expects of him and
what he can expect of it. He
is then brought before a staff
committee which assigns him
to the work detail which will
serve him most"
An inmate begins his day
at 5:45 a.m. after bed count.
He cleans bis cell, eats and
goes to one of the prison's
13 industries to work. Besides
a 1300 acre farm, these in
dustries consist of a garment
factory, a tailor shop, a sheet j
metal plant a broom shop,
the manufacture of new fur
niture and the repair of old,
a laundry, a shoe repair
shop, a cannery, creamery,
bakery and auto shop.
An inmate described the
cafeteria-style noon meal as
"plentiful, usually consisting!
of pork or beef steak, ham-j
burger, potatoes, fruit, vege
table, and lots of salad." I
New Method
The present plan of enter
ing and leaving the cafeteria
by tables of four replaces the
older method of the prison
ers e a 1 1 n g in a group with j
their backs to a gun cage in
which two guards with a rifle
and gas gun watched. j
Three chaplains provide
voluntary spiritual counseling ,
for the inmates. "Often a j
man shuns church and re--ligion
with the comment 1
didn't go on the "outside", so
why should I begin here?"'
commented one of the chap
lains. "We answer, 'Does that
mean that if you didnt go
to the movies or brush your
teeth on the "outside" that
you wouldn't begin here?"
Sports include basketball
and tournament play, minia
ture gplf, ping pong, reading,
chess and checkers, boxing,
handball, tennis and weight
lifting, one of the most popu
lar. Hobbies as music com
position and poetry writing
reflect a man's longing for
the "outside".
A man has the opportunity
to shorten his stay by earn
ing "good time". He earns
two months of "good time
each year, five days each
month he gets a good con
duct report and five days of
"good time each month he
donates blood, 743 pints being
given by the inmates last
December.
Minimum Sentence
Ninty-seven per cent of the
citizens will leave on parole
or by pardon when they have
served the minimum statua-
tory time. The State Board
of Pardons assists them in
finding jobs and housing, a
man not being eligible for re
lease on parole until he has
a job.
"The conclusion of their
tale." McMahon and Malena
caution, "is in the public's
hands. If given a chance,
these men can become use
ful citizens. We must make
no automatic judgements, for
they were not born in the
'city behind walls .
Analyst Bill
Progresses
By 8-0 Vote
A Budget Committee bill to
create the post of fiscal an
alyst LB709, drew little at
tention from supporters or op
ponents Monday and was ad

not have time to go into de
tail and come up with as
much complete information
year after year to make bud

May Breakfast Features
YWCA Career Woman
Miss Sue Stille, a member
of the International Division
of the National Board of the
Young Women's Christian
Association (YWCA) will be
featured speaker at the annu
al May Morning Breakfast.
The breakfast will be held
Sunday at 8 a.m. in the Lu
theran stnrtpnt House. Per
sons interested in making!
reservations for the event!
can call the University;
YWCA (HE 2-7631 ext. 4292)1
between the hours of 2-3!
p.m.
The featured speaker,
Miss Stille, a graduate of the
University is back in the
United States after nearly
seven years in Uganda, East
Africa, where she helped to
YWCA that is now reaching
women through more than 60
clubs, some as far as 133
miles from Kampala, Associ
ation headquarters.
Her new assignemt is the
first in the United States for
16 years, except for a few
months in 1952 when she
worked on a special project
in Chicago. Miss Stille has
served with the YWCA in the
Middle East, Egypt, Italy
and Germany.
Sent to Africa at the re
quest of a council of women
in Lganda,
worked with
Miss Stille
women of the'
country in what she calls "a
demonstration of cooperative
interracial planning and work
in a changing continent."
African, Indian and Euro
pea women living in Uganda
developed together the YWCA
clubs which not only serve
the main racial groups but
also Moslems as well as
Christians.
According to Miss Stille,
the old tribal ways are
changing and the African
farms to take jobs in the
factories of Kampala and oth
er cities in Uganda, just as
American women did during
our industrial revolutions
more than one hundred years
ago. It is with these young
workers, as well as with
nurses, teachers, housewives
and teenagers that the YWCA
is actively concerned.
Miss Stille has been a pion
eer in the YWCA work in
various parts of the world.
At the beginning of her Afri
can assignment she lived in
a mud hut with an open door
to millepedes, lizard, ibis and
various forms of fauna, na
tive to the region.
Born in Unionville, Mo.,
Miss Stille has had graduate
courses in group work at
Western Reserve College in
Cleveland, Ohio. She has
traveled widely in this coun
try, Europe, the Near East
and Mexico.
