N.Y. 'The men sitting on top of the powder kegs are best, qualified to look into the situation," Erickson said in a telephone interview. Not Blinded "We have an understanding of the problems inmates face. But we haven't blinded our eyes to the fact that the best and only society for some people is a penal society," Erickson said. "We have many outside forces working on our institutions. Our pri.sons are being attacked a.s failures. Wardens are being labeled as failures. "But by and large most ot this criticism is coniing from naive, self-appointed experts who have appointed themselves with tlie oil of wsdom after a airsory visit to some institution or a talk with one of the products who may be tottering on the brink of parole violation," he said.

Tluis, he .said, wardens are cavight in the middle, attacked on one side for being cruel o]> pressors, on the other for being do-gooders. "Sure, it's tnic that a lot of crime is committed by ex-convicts." he said. "Rut why hang the prison for that? "People forgot that by the lime we gel Iheni. these guys have failed at evcnihing.
