VTlH "XI nV ABOl'T MEN" IX PRISON. The recent revolt of prisoners in the Atlanta Federal Prison, with publicity given to the complaints of the men, should cause penal officials to check their treatment of prisoners. No one can condone prison revolt but, just the same, individuals do not lose all their rights simply because of mistakes that put them in prison. One of the complaints of the Atlanta prisoners was that they could not get a hearing about grievances. Considering the fact that individuals imprisoned are in an isolated world, it seems to be only just tlaat they have some way of registering complaints about the treatment they receive, i i : J While most prison ' officials display commendable concern for the welfare of their charges, there are enough incidents to justify the idea that the statement does not apply to every penal institution.

For the first time in your years, the children of The Netherlands celebrated the arrival of St. Nicholas in mass gatherings on December 5th, the day that the saint of childhood regularly arrives in Holland. During German occupation, children were compelled to celebrate their festive day in their homes but this year, teachers led their charges to parties where British Fenoglio, both formerly employed at the old First National Bank. hav accepted positions with the derers here in this house " "Unless Craig shot himself for that very reason," suggested Lieutenant Nugent watching Chivery 's frightened, uneasy face. "Shot himself oh, I Bee! To make It look as if somebody else tried to kill him and then succeeded in killing his father? To establish a kind of alibi before the deed? Why, that's preposterous, Lieutenant! That's absurd! Ha, ha, ha.'' again it was meant to be a laugh and aounded like anything else in the world. And 1 said, "But he does have an alibi. Craig. I mean. I am it." Both men looked at me. "I was in the room. I would have known if he had moved. He didn't." There was a moment of silence. Cbiverr hadn't looked quite at me, just at my left ear.
