Religious Services To Feature Thanksgiving Observance Here Adkins Defends Prison System Improved Conditions In Past Four Years Cited By Governor LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 29 (UP)jg Governor Adkins has answered charges made by Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Byron Bogard of Little Rock that Arkansas' penal system is little improved over medieval' systems. Bogard, in a talk before tho Greater Little Rock Ministerial Al Hance Monday, charged that til present penal system in Arkansas made no attempt to rehabilitati men sent there for.violations. •Here's what i( G.oycnior Adkins sail 'in reply': ' ' ' '. ( "I am greatly disappointed and • surprised at Mr. Byron Bogard's statement. • because H shows conclusively that he does not know anything about the penal system and its present operation. "He is really talking about conditions as they existed four years I ago when the present board took over-the operation of the penal system because iliis description jits it reasonably! well,- as -it!was operated ,at that, lime."; '. .; -'•..; •:.-.. ''Anil ' the governor says he has invited the Ministerial Alliance to j make an unannounced trip to the Arkansas Boys Industrial School, Cummins Prison Farm and Tucket- Prison farm. Ho says he wants the ministers to see for themselves how Ihe prisons operate. And lie adds: "It might-pay Mr. Bogard to accompany them In order that he mi»ht be enlightened.'' Prosecuting Attorney Sam Robinson of Little Rock, Bogard's chief, also 'branded as untrue Bogard's statements. > Robinson says an investigation of the facts by anyone interested will disclose that the penitentiary ar,i parole systems are both conducted in a most efficient and satisfactory manner. An;l adds: "I do not believe that the percentage of those ^ rehabilitated in this state is'sur- ^ passed by any stale in the union or by tlio Federal Government." _ . . ', — ;.
