Inmate Project sends 'U'
students to local
By BECKY BERNARD
Jackie DeGroat said she was nervous
the first time she entered Milan
.Federal Prison. She knew she would
encounter things she wasn't used to but
still didn't know what to expect.
After talking to several prisoners,
however, DeGroat, an LSA senior,
discovered they were "people with
families and jobs. People that just
hadn't made it in society."
DEGROAT'S experience was not
very different from that of other par-
ticipants in Inmate Project, which of-

learn about the criminal justice system
through actual experience. At the same

THIS SEMESTER, volunteers are
working with inmates at Cassidy Lake
Technical School, Jackson State
Prison, and Huron Valley Men's and
Women's Facilities. Other students are
working with juveniles at! the Maxey
Boys Training School in Green Oaks
Township, Huron Residential Services
for Youth, Inc., and the Washtenaw
County Juvenile Detention Center.
Volunteers who do not want to work
inside institutions can work with
disabled ex-offenders, as attorney's
apprentices or in other court positions.
In addition to providing academic
tutoring to inmates, volunteers offer a
number of diversions from prison life,
Edgren said. These include slide
shows, dancing, music, exercise
classes, and sporting activities.
Students even help inmates organize
talent and fashion shows, Edgren said.
AT THE juvenile institutions, volun-
teers teach inmates job finding skills,
how to improve their study habits, and
how to apply to college.

Foreign Relations Committee, also

last week when he told the committee
that he hadn't thought about such issues
as whether a nuclear war was win-
It isn't, he testified yesterday.
ADELMAN, NOMINATED to head
the Arms Control and Disarmament
Agency, raised criticism with his lack
of answers last week, and Committee
Chairman Charles Percy had
threatened to hold up his nomination
until the administration moved on the
two test ban treaties.
In yesterday's testimony, Adelman
had answers. He said a nuclear war,
even if limited at the outset, would
spread because "pressures would be
"There would be no winners in a
nuclear war," he said, although he
declined to explicitly say that the
United States couldn't "prevail" in
such a conflict.
ON WHETHER THE United States or
the Soviet Union could survive a major
nuclear war, Adelman said, "No. . . It
would change the fundamental nature
of the world, the fundamental nature of
human life. It would be such a
