Is Last of Summer Excursion
Daily Lift of Prisoners To
Observed by Party



Received on QuestionnaireC

The last of the excursions spon-
sored by the University for the
convenience of summer students
will be held .next Saturday. The
party will visit the Michigan State
prison at Jackson, leaving at 7:45
a. m. from in front of Angell hall,
and travelling in special buses
chartered for the occasion. Anf
students who possess cars and
would prefer to use them in the
trip to the prison may do so, ac-
cording to a communication froml
Carlton Wells who will be in charge
of the trip. It will be necessary,
however, for any who avail them-
selves of this privilege to meet the
party at 9:00 o'clock sharp at the
head of Mechanics street in Jack-
The trip this year will include
the prison industries and it will be
possible for the members of the
party to gain first hand informa-
tion regarding the handling of the
prisoners at a large state penal in-
stitution. The monument factory!
where only long term convicts are
employed due to the difficulty of
the work and the necessity for
highly skilled hands will first be'
The textile mill for the produc-
tion of courser fabricssuch as
overalls and the auto plate plant
where all state automobile license
plates are made will next be vis-
ited. The bindery twine depart-
ment should prove of interest since
it is by far the most successful of
the prison industries. The state l
constitution provides that no arti-1
cles may be manufactured in thek
prison workshops the chief supply !
of which comes from within the"
state. This clause has somewhat
restricted the development of pris-
on industries and has directly led
to the specialization in those arti-
cles not etensively manufactured{
in Michigan.
Some conception of the daily life
of the prisoners will be gained by
an inspection of the cell blocks,s
dining hall, and recreation grounds.-
About an hour and a half in all willj
be spent inspecting the prisonI
after which there will be given an
opportunity for asking questions of
the official who has conducted theI
party through the prison. The
