Thompson writes 200 letters a month in longhand, most of them in response to missives which start: "Dear Mom and Dad Thompson...." Most of the letters go to prisons, for the Rev. and Mrs. Thompson have devoted the past six or seven years to working with newly released or about-to-be-released convicts. Their score is high, perhaps because she has been doing it for 30 years and he was one., "I met Mr. Thompson in my prison work and helped him get a parole and lead a useful life," says Ruby Thompson. "So far, we have helped 33 ex- convicts find jobs, re-unite with their families and begin their lives anew. Only one has gone back to prison." The Thompsons were married in 1940, two years after his release from the Missouri Penitentiary, where he served a term for bank robbery. They did missionary work among the Indians in Oklahoma, came to Independence seven years ago and soon opened the Trinity Full Gospel Church of God. Since October, the focal point of their rehabilitation work has been a store in Independence where men fresh out of prison repair and sell cast-off clothing, furniture and toys. "If we can get them established help them find a job and get some clothes, we think they can make it on their own," says Mrs. Thompson. "Our plan is to keep them no longer than 30 days. "When a convict is released from prison, he gets only some clothes and $25. That's the time he needs help and guidance the most" The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader. Richmond Area News By MABEL CHANDLER Mr. and Mrs. M. W.
