THREE AIMS The interesting phase, of the Army's penal program, however, is thai every inmate is bein^ yiven another chance to make good. In the reforming of its "bad boys," the Army is pursuing a triple-sided policy: 1. Punish derelictions to preserve the Army's necessity for discipline. •j. Restore the men. mentally and physieally, .to the .stature of good soldiers. 3. Reccndition men so that ihcy will return to civilian life as good citizens.

A. W. White, executive officer at Ihe barracks. , ' Until these men "make good"— (hose of them who do—they are "men without a country." They are not soldiers. They not only are dishonorably discharged, they are -also Army 'convicts. They no longei- draw pay. Allotments to their relatives are ended. They. cannot vote.

CLKMENCV (iUANTKI) Some were sentenced originally io as much as 50 yenrs. But in nil those cases the sentences were reduced later by clemency action. Some still face five years m prison. Many are -still resentful of the courts-martial sentences. "I only went A.W.O.lj. 11 couple of days," is ;L common remark • from them, I hey shouldn't have- Riven me the stiff sentence they did.' The 24 in the "honor company" that fa ceil General Craig, arc given the freedom of the grounds. They no longer bunk In cett-hous- <*K.

Mom learned a lot about electric service during the war. She found that stitching up a cruiser and stitching up a curtain arc both done more easily and quickly when electricity lends a hand.. 'And when home-making had to be sandwiched in after, war-plant hours, Mom learned that the touch of a fingertip brought her a dozen willing servants for. the cost of a candy bar. Mom's back in the kitchen. And electric service —always ready, dependable and cheap — is there with her, making her, tasks easier, her life more comfortable. Service like that just doesn't happen. It takes hard work and good business management. The men and women in Mom's electric company— and yours, too —make it possible. • Hftr NELSON EDDY in "11113 ELECTRIC HOUR" wilb Robert ArmbriaHr'i Orcktltr*.
