Overpopulation Is Problem, Anderson Says Prison Needs Facilities TOPEKA (AP) — Now legisla tion for penal administration and for an escheat law for Kansas to gain unused funds were urged Friday by Gov. John Anderson. Anderson also rapped his Democratic opponent for governor, Dale Saffels, for what he termed no constructive program and for • "a continual harrassment and picking at little things." Anderson's comments were in remarks prepared for political gatherings at Newton and Manhattan during the da'y. The penal question lias been in the news the past week with Saffels criticizing commutation of a sentence for a pregnant woman prisoner and the escape later of four inmates, two men and two women, from the prison at Lansing. "We must all admit that there is room for improvement in government at all times, and certainly one of the areas of government that had too long been neglected in Kansas is our penal administration program," Anderson said. The governor said improvements have been made in recent years including several new laws and establishment of the reception and diagnostic center near Tope.fca. '"The great need now facing Kansas is taking cave of the overpopulation at our penitentiary," he said. Anderson said the situation is not alarming but that more facilities are needed for the Lansing prison. He said he made recommendations for additional facilities at the 1961 regular session and the 1962 budget session of the legislature. The next legislature will be asked to consider recommendations of the adyisory commission on penal management, he added. Anderson said Saffels' campaigning "is satisfactory proof that they have nothing substantial to complain about." "It is a program of tearing down rather than building up and in the process of tearing down the individuals in government, whether elective or whatever, the state is the loser, the people of Kansas are the losers, for this tyne of campaign tends to destroy faith of some people in our ren- resentative form of government," he. snid. Anders,o n said the 1981 legislature adopted 37 of 41 recommendations he made. He listed free textbooks, aid to junior colleges and municipal universities, a college building program and the state's water resources program.

Particularly in need of consideration, Anderson said, is a tax escheat law in which unclaimed funds held for many years in financial institutions would revert to the state. "It has been constructively estimated that a sound law in Kansas as now implemented in a few states would turn over to the public funds a million dollars a year or more," he said. "I feel that Kansas should have such legislation ... I will recommend such legislation at the next session of the legislature."
