state today became a nagging room-
ing house keeper to inmates of its
Auditor General John J. O'Hara
launched enforcement of the Delano
bill, designed to make every prisoner
in a state prison, with vulnerable.
property, to pay his own keep. He
sent a questionnaire to every state
prison requiring every inmate to list
his property holdings.
O'Hara has appointed a former as-
sistant attorney general, Ralph E.
Hughes, to enforce the law. A form-
er administration had employed
Hughes to extract from inmates of
state mental and hospital institutions
the cost of their hospitalizaion.
Board Bills Included
Represenative Carl F. Delano, Re-
publican, Kalamazoo, wrote the bill
which was adopted by the legislature
and signed by the governor, and
which will permit the state to force
prison inmates to pay the average per
capita cost of their incarceration and
also pay their board bills since the
time they were imprisoned.
The measure is awaiting the first
contestant on the grounds of its con-
titutionality. Hughes denied a rum-
or that Ralfe McDonald, who will
inherit $250,000 on his majority, and
who slew his mother in Flint, will be
the first defendant in a circut court
suit to collect board for state prison
The state legislature passed a law
in 1923 which empowered the auditor
general to collect for hospitalization
fromall monied inmates of sanitoria
and mental institutions.
$207,392 Collected In 1934
Records for the fiscal year of 1934
show the state treated 15,209 such
cases and collected $207,392 from pa-
tients able to pay their own way and
an additional $100,000 in collateral.
The questionnaires mailed to the
State Prison of Southern Michigan
today require each prisoner to give
the name of his guardian, list his real
estate holdings, his ownership of per-
sonal property, his army service, and
the amount of his pension of com-
pensation from the army.
Prosecutor Makes Petition
In order to collect from prisoners
with finances, the auditor general or
local prosecuting attorney must make
a petition in the court in which the
prisoner was sentenced, praying for
funds from his estate to cover the
entire cost of keeping the defendant
The sentencing judge then names a
guardian for the prisoner if he has
had none previously. Dependants
will be considered by the judge in
setting the amount of the payments.
"Previously, persons who became
insane through no fault of their own
were forced to pay for their keep by
the state if they were financially
able," O'Hara commented. "Crimin-
als incarcerated due -to their own ac-
tions were boarded free and spent
their caches after serving their time.

Class Favoritism Charged
Much of the public reproof admin-

A glut of old men, with no chance
of promotion, had impaired the

mend matters, he started hiring
