OHILIilCOTHE. Ohio (A>>—In a
prison built by the prisoners them-
selves, the federal government is
seeking to set on the right path
young men who have gone wrong.
Supt. Joseph Sanford says all but
two of the 24 buildings of the federal
industrial reformatory here, housing
1,300 first offenders against national
laws, were built by the inmates.
The men also have helped furnish
the institution and have made some
of the tools they use in the work
program designed to assist them in
Starting with nothing but the
temporary wooden barracks of the
war-time army post of Port Sher-
man, the prison bureau has created
a modern industrial city of neat
brick cellhouses, dormitories, shops
and workrooms in the last 10 years.
Beside a high shale hill at the
edge of the reservation, a brick
plant was erected soon after the
prion bureau took over the plot in
1926. Prisoners were trained to
shape the SHifle, pile the raw bricks
in the large bake oven and fire the
ovens to bake the bricks.
As shops were added to the prison
plant, inmates were able to take
over more and more of the construc-
tion work. All the iron beds of the
Institution and much of the other
metal equipment and woodwork
were turned out in prison shops.
“If there’s anything of a mechan-
ical nature that we can manufacture
here, we do It,” Sanford explains.
Guards Double As Teachers
A chair factory and another small
dormitory to house disciplinary
“problems” will be constructed by
the inmate-workers this year.
Inmates do most oT the cooking
and baking, run the prison laundry,
scrub the floors and polish the brass.
The prison farm produces vege-
tables, milk and pork for the mess.
The typical Chillicothe guard fre-
quently senes as keeper, foreman
and' teachqr ail in one. Besides
watching the men at work to pre-
vent escapes, he may be a skilled
tradesman, capable of bossing the

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FOR

most Interesting round-ups of Cen-

parents who have children ready
to enter school next fall, take there
children to their family physician
for a physical examination so that

or mental handicap which threat-
ens a ohilds well-being. A fall check
up Is made of these same children,
result that the child en-
be as free from physical and men-
tal handicaps as possible.
It is a most essential factor in
the life of each child that he be
free from all physical dfects in or-
der that he may do his best work
when In school. The child has been
allowed to play most of his time
until he comes of school age, so it
Is most important that all handi-
caps be removed when he Is asked
to take up that part of his career
which has to do with hls mental
training. The child who does not
hear or see well would not be able
to get the same benefits from his
school work as the child who does
