(AP) - Presidential candidates will not be able to withdraw once their names go on the 1972 Oregon primary election ballot. Gov. Tom McCall has .signed legislation revising laws governing tlie state's primary election HEAR MB, BARABBAS!, BY Bill Larson (Hubert Publications $1.95) REFRESHING BREAK FROM SEX, SADISM By VIRGIL TALBOT If you are looking for a refreshing break from the sex and sadism so prevalent in today's fiction, this exciting novel of high international politics should f i l l the bill. And if you get thn feeling you have read ;i similar plot before, just recall 1961 and the Bay of Pigs. The similarities are not all (here, but enought arc to lend credence to the story. It is thn year 1977 and newly elected President McCormick h a; agreed to a C.I.A. plan for un seating the Indian government. It seems India's C. P. Roy is phiying footsie with China. Key to the success of the plan is British cooperation anc herein lies the plot. America's insistence on this cooperatioi causes some British heads to roll and a "pro-American De Gaulle" .Sebastian Fleming takes the reins of government Tense drama holds the read er's attention as he is treatec to an inside glimpse of govern menl and politics at work. The time clement set out in usin; f h o year 1977 emphasizes the fictional nature of the story but one wonders if all this couldn't easily happen. At any r a t e the C.I.A. plan Jails and s o m e red f a c e s are hidden by the c r e d i b i l i t y gap. Scbas- tian Fleming suddenly finds his newly acquired leadership b a l - ancing on a shaky foundation. Career-oriented British diplomats have their faith restored in their belief that American deplomacy ranks of "complete amateurism." Meanwhile. President McCormick t u r n s back to America's problems of racial strife, urban problems and the c o l d war. This is the story of an ex- convict who now heads an important rehabilitation founda- ion for newly discharged crim- nals. But it is also the story of how he became a criminal and how he changed. The account of Bill Larson's ifc of crime is not pleasant nor s meant to be. He tells of the various pay-offs, police on the ake and how time in prison s often just a way station. He goes to the roots of the cause of juvenile delinquency and only offers solutions but notivations for correcting law- jreaking. Larson tells about youthful offenders being put in prisons with hardened criminals and icing turned into homosexuals. He comments on the parole system, death penalty, and city and county jails. Larson supplied the information lor the book but the actual ivriting was done by Bill Schul, a consultant in the department of preventative psychiatry at the Meninger Foundation. Time spent behind the walls of a prison usually work against a man, he says, for the longer it is the more deterioration takes place. Few prisons provide rehabilitation, he says. It is and ha: been merely a form of punishment which often fails because once a man gets out. he usually goes back to his old life. In this brief book. 108 pages he compresses a lifetime of being on the wrong side of the fence. Larson n o w heads the Seventh Step Foundation in To peka. Kans.

This reviewer highly recommends Hear Me, Barabbas! to all policemen, judges, prosecutors, teenagers and anyone who wonders what can happen to a man in prison. It should be recommended reading in high schools yes. even in prison libraries. Ninety nine percent of the people in the U.S. have never seen th inside of a jail.
