Progress In Prison Reform

Seen Despite Recent Breaks








"Things are looking up in the field
of prison reform."
In spite of numerous recent at-
tempts at prison-breaking, blamed
by some on low standards in prison
personnel and extreme measures in
prison reform, this was the opinion
voiced by Prof. Arthur E. Wood of
the sociology department in an in-,
terview yesterd y.
Defending h's assertion, Professor
Wood, a criminology expert, declared
that "the prison has never been built
from which prisoners couldn't es-
cape." He added that many penal
systems, especially in cases of states,
are pitifully- inadequate and even
corrupt, but that the modern prison
reform program should not be blamed
for these deficiencies.
For Inmates' Reconstruction
This reform idea, he explained,
is bending every effort to facilitate
a reconstruction of inmates' behavior
and outlook, always remembering
that most prisoners sooner or later
become members of society again.
Toward this end, he observed, re-
habilitative programs are being sub-
stituted wherever - possible for the
old-type punitive system. .

and other examinations. Reports
and checkups are continually being
made, he added.
The Federal Government particu-
larly has made progress in the edu-
cational, psychiatric and medical
fields of prison reform, he declared.
Professor Wood also pointed to pro-
