Like most federal penitentiaries, La Tuna is as nearly self-sufficient as possible. Corn, beans, lomaloes, «iuasli, potatoes and other crops arc grown on the grounds nnd canned In the penitentiary shops, using equipment constructed by prison machinists. More than )l,000 gallons of vegetables have been canned at the farm. 'I'o Have Dairy Herd Tho prison has its owii hogs to supply meat and a bird of 36 dairy cattle will be brought, from I^avcnworth penitentiary by Jan. 1 to provide the prison with dairy products. Ducks, because, as prison officials say, they lay more eggs' at egg less cost than chickens, nil needs at table and kitchen. Designation of tho farm as a long term prison will entail no hardship upon management of the penitentiary, said Reuben R. Cross, associate warden. "Operation of a short term prison is more difficult than a long term penitentiary," he said. "When tho prisoners have become accustomed to prison life, there Is no difference. The difficulty arises in acclimating so many different men In a short term institution."

Come along now to another American bullilng beach a couple of Inmdrcd miles awny— Baileys Beach, at Newport, R. I. Yon wont find a greater contrast. In America. Bailey's Beach Is the exclusive private beach of Ihc Newport .summer colony, it Is n strip cl sand perhaps 100 yards wide nnd hnlr a mile lonn nicely fenced In, and buttressed on its landward side by n neat two-story brick administration building, n row of cabanas, n bnr, n restaurant, and a dance pavilion. Y«u Join this club— Its offldni name, by the way, Is the Spouting Rock Hciicli Association— by In- vHallon, mid you pay $:foo for three shares of stcck. In addition. If yuu want a cabana, you pay $150 more. There are, of comae, annual dues besides. On n weekend In July or August, or during that great gathering known as Tennis Week, the place will get a gootl-slxed crowd —as ninny as 600 people, sometimes. Fundamentally, both of these beaches (Bailey's nnd coney) sell the same wares - water, sand, fiesh air, nml sunlight, m a sense, oiey sl ,)i something else oo: nt Bailey's a sense of belonging to tlic lop ilighl-at Coney, a .sense of tolng an Inextricable pail o/ n singularly to]- erajil, cnstial, noii-ctass-conyjcus proletariat.

As 1 say, It's [jnlic a contrast! It isn't brought up here to nraiso clas.'i feeling or to point a moral. America Is a free country, and each of these beaches gives full snttsfactlcn to Its patrons. But anyone who Is interested iu politics ought to take a look nt both places. They represent two extremes in American life. The politician has to take both extremes Into consideration.
