, Sunday, March 11. 1951 -. designed -by Roek prisoner-architect 3-Page Letter Goes With Tax Protest y NEW YORK, March 10 (UP)— Rev. A. J. Muste, a Presbyterian minister, filed his income tax Saturday—a three-page letter on his political views, a copy of the gospels and Henry Thoreau's essay on civil disobedience. Muste told the Internal Revenue bureau he would not file a return or pay any taxes because he opposes the armaments race between the United States and Russia. -.He also' refused to file a return for 1948 and 1949. Muste was joined in his action by 58 other pacifists in « atafeo who -belong, to the Tax- ReJiwal Committee of Peacemakers.-^ 7 - Mfuafce-; wrote- tjha...TntM&V Pqfe; •nue; bureau tnWhe'believed tti£ menace';of Russian; expansionism and totalitarian communism ''must be_. opposed by" nti'eanj "that' are truly .'.effective;-but-that violence and' war contribute 7 to their growth, hot their.destruction. ; .

This armaments race Is.correctly described as a 'paranoia race,'" Muste said he felt no creative, effective alternative to war could be found "until we make up our minds - to' abandon the war method."

Rock Quarry prison was constructed to house 320 of the state's most hardened and incorrigible criminals. Everything from the .architect's drawings .to the last intricate lock and listening:- device was the work of skilled prisoners. . The job waa done'in nine jnontfis; ; •-- • '• S "' '• • .-•,.-. - ; ; •-.A Pleasant Borne - : whos . forged- the bars, ''welded -"the -cell bloctai and -aet .up the- siren ays- tem'. 'I'.They .desjgnea:';:a'nd constructed 'the' complicated -system of locks, put up five. watch-towers and topped -It 'off by : building a pleasant home -for • Warden Ed Clements. Clements values the' new peni- tentia"ry at a million dollars. He says it actually cost the state only $114,838.25. The warden says it is as nearly escapeproof as a jail can • be made. It already is being called "Georgia's Alcatraz." "The way those towers are placed, even bribing guards would not help -» prisoner escape unless he bribed at. least three of them," Clements says, "and his chances of getting away wouldn't be too good even then." One of the best bricklayers in , the country was responsible for \ the prison's red brick front, according to the warden. In various jails for much of his life, he is serving a 20-year term for burglary. Another burglar with a 20-year sentence, a cook named Bill, devised the intricate locks for the solitary confinement cells. He built them, too. Any cell can be locked, or unlocked from outside the cell block by use of a double key and electrically operated sliding doors. Bill also constructed the cells, although he ha8 never done similar work before. All the plumbing was installed by a life-termer who was a professional plumber on the outside. Another burglar was the surveyor. The electricians who did the complicated wiring jobs were thieves and sex criminals. The man who built all the. doors has completed nine years of a 25 to 40 year sentence for receiving stolen goods. : A murderer did such a good welding job the warden rewarded him with. a transfer to a prison camp nearer his home. A skilled cabinetmaker built all the : farni- tti'rermn(J;a : carpenter paneled the warden's 'house. ' " .

He is pleased that the men who built the prison don't want "to be among the "hard rocks" who \vill occupy it. The warden is proud of their Work and hopes the experience they gained will add to their chances of finding jobs when they sre released.
