T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, MARCH 10, Iff* Delinquents Are Playing Guinea Pig In Experiment WASHINGTON.- «i - In a drab, institutional building at the crest ^f a steep bill commanding uie capital city, youn delinquents: are playing guine pig for a novel experiment ' the psychology of success. Unlike most reform school in mates, these fellows are free to lie in bed all day, shoot poo (if they have the money) o goof off at will. But they don't. The psycho! ogists have taken Jefferson Hal · at the National Training Schoo for Boys and transformed it int a microcosm of the outside world--where achievement pay off. FOR NEARLY every act o their waking day', the 18 boysy- mostly young car thieves -- in this federal institution are giver points. For each point, they ar paid a penny. ' Unlike the 200 or so other lad at the reform school, they pay for their rooms, which are pri vate. They pay for their foot toiletries, recreation, b o o k s decorations, clothing. And with staff members o the Institute for Behavoral Re search watching, carefully, the boys are studying hard, work irig in their, spare time, shoot ing for "success." THE EXPERIMENT is being governed by a simple psycho logical premise 'that rewards stimulate 'achievement and sue cess. Financed by grants from the Department, of Justice and Health,' Education and Welfare, the experiment was launched, in thehopes it would develop a curriculum that might be,applied to other penal institutions. ."In a sense, Jefferson Hall is a greenhouse," said Harold L. Cohen, director of the experiment., "The training school boy "comes from an; environment in 'which the choices of activity were limited and the motivation very low. As a' result, many chose the only path open to them--antisocial behavior. ' . . ' - . "HERE WE ARE trying to design an environment in which the student is motivated by the prospect of an immediate reward, and where he has several choices of activity open to him."' The h i t c h on the outside, Cohen said, is that rewards --such as a diploma or a promotion--often seem vague and distant. But points for learning and achievement are awarded immediately at Jefferson Hall, and the w e e k l y pay check.buys many of. the same things as the pay check of a .worker on the. outside. Eventually, Cohen said, the checks, gradually will be delayed ; to condition the youths to the delays that accompany rewards on. the outside. WHILE A BOY may choose to goof off all day, he knows his private room costs $6 a week, or 600 points, as does his basic menu. He knows that if his points fall below 1,200, he will go "on relief"--losing his private room, eating institutional food, wearing institutional clothing and enjoying no extras. So he studies and works. None has yet gone on relief. Several have shown dramatic scholastic improvement, for which they are tested frequently and paid in points. 'Starting at a base.pay of $10 to $15 a week--payable only on achievement of 90 per cent in examinations and a minimum number of hours of work--the youth shoots for even higher grades and more work. The boys, who are selected at random, are governed by none of the controls imposed on other inmates. "These young people are no! just after points or money," Cohen insisted. "They are hungry for a chance to be right instead of wrong--to be successful." Bayless Bonus THURSDAY.
