The wealthy banker : v and clubman did not' forget the men he left behind him when he was discharged from the Eastern Statepenitentiary of Pennsylvania." ". '••.•;,;. A man careening automobile- killed three persons as it crashed into a pole at a dangerout street intersection. That-was in March. 1923. Henry G. Brock staggered from the machine to the pavement, only dimly aware through the- haze of a brew-be, fuddled brain of the horror of the tragedy which stirred this community. A few weeks later,, penitent and subdued. Brock came before a court with his counsel, Owen J.. Roberts, now a Justice of i the U. S. Supreme Court. ' \ He pleaded guilty to murder which the court fixed at second degree,' and was sentenced to a term of six to ten years in the. Eastern State Penitentiary. • , ; That a woman companion and not Brock was driving his car on the fateful night was a matter of public gossip. Her identity or her part in the crime was neve? .divulged, it is now generally belivea, because Brock believed in a gentleman's code. Over the destinies of the Penitentiary, behind the walls of which he Served three years and two months of his,term i Brock will now preside with others sjs a member of the Board of Trustees. He was appointed !by Governor Gifford Pinchot. DuVing< his term, which was abbreviated by a pardon, and in the years since, Brock has been constantly engaged in penal reform work. When he entetr^ the penitentiary iew of the inmates, were engaged in any kind of Work. A mere handful were employed at knitting neckties, but that was all. Brock saw the effect and feared the danger of' idleness. He saw too how their pessimism and bilterness could ruin their chances of rehabilitation once they were out in the world again. He set to work quietly. -Using his own money, he provided equipment for his fellow-convicts that enabled them to work.

Brooks political .piece do resistance in Loulsi aim since 1028, faces the necessity of adopting n new technique asi he begins his delayed term in the United States senate. t The Louisiana governor, whose exploits commanded columns of spflce ih newspaers, is throwing himself up against a much larger political canvas and observers in the capitn! will Watch his seat in the senate chamber With more than casual Interest for many weeks. At first the formalities and restrictions may irritate the new senator, bui, if so, he probably wfll keep his irritation to himself and plug everlastingly away at what he sets out to do. He is persistent and follows his thoughts with direct action. Ke WHS fiery and fearless in his administration of state affairs and cvrn the most stringent rules unlikely wilt hamper his style. He will find ways and means to achieve his ends. As governor of Louisiana. Long, greeted dignitaries in pajamas, signed bilk in bed. refused to leave his state for fear a political foe might usurp the power for a day, and put off his Washington debut for the same reason. Within 11 months after his election as governor in 1928 he faced impeachment charges — and was exonerated. His fiery personality won both admiration and hatered. , Here in the capital, the youthful senator 1 will find many a curb upon his natural inclinations to cut red tape and formality. First off, he will come smack up against the well known senatorial taboo against much activity on 'the part of new senators. Others as tempestuous and impulsive as the Hon. Huey have banged this unwritten code without much avail. The seasoned veterans have ways and means of enforcing this creed which are unobtrusive bujt effective. As governor, the 38-year-old executive had plenty of power to force action upon almost any matter. He even called out the militia to help him when he needed it As senator, he will fnid conflicting and special regional needs of others frequently slow up direct action upon his proposals. Further, there was only one govr ernor in Louisiana (at least Long contended as much although at one time sever*! pcrstmS had MMfe tt* efflcc).

Here each utterance and action must be weighed in the press dispatch hopper in relation to all the others.

From these small centers of convict, industry came ship models, toys, wear. ing apparel and articles of hammered brass. i At the hearing before the Pardon Board _at which Brock's petition wa^ unopposed by the District Attorney's office. Roberts .revealed that Brock had disposed of ?40,000 worth of prison-made products through 'gift shops which he established in various parts of" the city. The Board of Common Pleas Court Judges in Philadelphia appointed him to the Board of County Prison Inspectors June t, 1929, and his plans for employment o prisoners there and for a new building to relieve its congestion are now being carried out. "I am devoting my life to this type oi work," said Brock when his latest appointment was revealed. "My object is to improve prison conditions, to assist prisoners in preparing to take a normal position in society upon their release."
