Center is Based on Trust MANCHESTER. Conn. (AP) — New Hope Manor is the only residential drug rehabilitation home for girls 12 to 17 in New England. No girl can be sentenced to Hope Manor. "You have to want to help yourself here," said one 13-year-old girl. "Everything here is based on trust. They show you love and they make you happy. The doors are always open." But no one leaves. With the help of teacher counselors and the family-type atmosphere, the girls make a major decision about their lives. "It's kinda hard not to get influenced about drugs," said one. "If you're at a party and everybody is getting high, it's hard just to sit there and say 'no'." This pretty dark-haired girl couldn't say "no" a few months ago. Since coming to Hope Manor, she can. New Hope Manor, founded by three nurses, was opened a year ago in Somers and moved to Manchester recently. The organization is leasing an old Victorian home from the South United Methodist A Gentleman's Jail; No Prison Stripes for the Cons Honored — Joe H.

The home is funded by a $47.000 grant from the State Department of Mental Health and through private donations. Most girls at the home think drug rehabilitation should start at age 8 or 10. They said many youngsters start taking drugs at these ages. i Lake City School Netvs Published By Carroll Daily Times Herald, Friday, May 24, 1974 Elaine Owens has been named May student-of-the-month at Lake City high school.

Pa. — (NEA) — At this stage it is of course not known whether President Nixon will be impeached by the House, convicted by the Senate and removed from office. And it is seldom even contemplated that he might further be charged by civil authorities, found guilty by the courts and sentenced to pay by incarceration. But one thing is perfectly clear: In the unlikely event all of the above did take place, Richard Nixon would not be dragged off to an ordinary can — he would wind up in a "gentlemen's jail" such as the quiet, contemplative Federal Prison Camp here in Pennsylvania's central sticks. The Allenwood camp, just past a golf and country club in a valley of rich soil and straight trees, is one of five minimum security lockups in a federally operated chain of 33 major institutions. And it is a far cry from the chain-gang and cattle- herd pens Edward G. Robinson snarled his way through in the 1940s cinema. Thje are no walls here, no bars, not even locks on the inmate doors. Women in miniskirts visit residents around ice cream tables on a patio; convicts loll in their underwear in the midday sun; there is a sturdy chain fence surrounding the 4.200-acre camp, but its purpose, says Superintendent Max Weager. is not to keep people in but out — area residents love to poach the camp's trout-stocked ponds. All in all it is the kind of prison progressive penologists would like to see house most common criminals. As it is. the-federal camp population constitutes only a small and very special percentage of felons. The bulk of people committing federal crimes end up in maximum security penitentiaries such as Leavenworth or medium security facilities such as Lewisburg (18 miles south of here). A strict screening procedure allows only nonaggressive. mentally stable, criminally unsophisticated "short timers" in the camp settings. Thus it is that all convicted Watergate personalities have served in the gentlemen's jails. Dirty trickster Donald Segretti spent time at the Lompoc camp in California, former presidential aide Herb Porter is there now. Four of the original Watergate burglars — Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez. Virgilio Gonzalez and Frank Sturgis — were jailed in the camp at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida until their recent release on bond. And here at Allenwood, White House plumber Egil Krogh is spending six months' —Times Herald News Service Photo Elaine Owens Booster Club's assembly last week, but ommited from the newspaper account include the following: by Coach Jim Knauss to the basketball boys were' letters to: Seniors, Jon Awtry, Clark Johnson, Bob Mally, Mark Johnson, Darrell Winter, Randy Smith; Juniors, Larry McCaulley, Dan Conrad, Jay Yunek, Randy Winter.

In the past, the populations at federal camps were made up almost exclusively of this kind of distinguished residency (including occasional senators, congressmen and U.S. judges). Actually, the camps were first conceived to accommodate "white collar" criminals, people who did not require maximum security and extensive rehabilitative programming. The idea was not to make their life more comfortable than other crooks, says a Bureau of Prisons spokesman, but to "cut down on the costs" of incarcerating non- dangerous offenders. Now this original thinking may be being victimized by new times and circumstances. Federal camps are today receiving fewer white collar felons and more narcotic, draft and "political-radical" violators. The result is that the simple, inexpensive camps are in some ways beginning to resemble the more traditional prison set-up. Allenwood now has an extensive education program, a counseling service ana narcotic programs — thus the cost-per-inmate, says Superintendent Weager. "is probably just about what it is in any other prisons." The comforts of the camp have also come up for an updated reevaluation. The humane rationale has it that prisoners who are treated decently will act decently, yet in practice it doesn't always work out so nicely. Lovely inmate children have sometimes smuggled contraband to their fathers here, moonshine stills are deplayed periodically through the countryside, and when Weager tried to establish a "prisoners' council" he had to crush it when it turned "totally combative." No doubt such things happen because, despite frills, jail is still jail. And in some ways. Weager says the liberal camp is harder on residents than an Alcatraz or Attica: "Some of the men see time here as harder time: the liberty, the lack of restraining measures, the extensive visitation rights create for some more anxiety." One inmate's wife puts it this way: "If he was behind bars he'd resign himself to it. This way. it's like he is almost free, almost out. but not quite. He's frustrated as all hell." The frustration of being "almost free" may account in part for the extraordinarily high number of escape attempts at federal camps. Lompoc averagesa couple a week. Allenwood is much better at 15 to 19 a year, but even this rate is deploring when measured against Demonstration Given on Art MANNING — Phyllis Lamp demonstrated making string art at the Friendly Neighbor Club meeting May 16 at the home of Rachael Stienke. Roll call was answered by 11 members and one guest, Dorothy Schrum. Eunice Ahrendsen read a letter from the extension office on the powder puffs mechanics lesson at Peters Motors on May 29. The club will help Clara and Alvin Musfeldt at their 25th wedding anniversary celebration at the VFW hall on May 25. Prizes for games played were won by Dorothy Schrum, Carolyn Blohm, Lola Ahrendsen and Lois Struve. Susan Rutz was honored at. a reception at the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. Amos Rutz following graduation exercises at the Manning High School on May 19. nearby Lewisburg which, sfiys Weager, "hasn't had a successful break-out in decades." Still, despite disappointments, Allenwood represents the best of an imperfect penal system. Men live in dormitories rather than cramped cells, supervision is minimal, residents move freely from place to place. Though there are some hoary prison regulations in force — Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, May 24, 1974 10 no chewing gum — tne'men have considerable latitude in shaping their time; some, for example, spend extensive periods sitting and reading behind the privacy doors recently installed in some toilet facilities. A few inmates see the Allenwood system as ripe for abuse. One camp policy, for example, is to allow six days a week visitation privileges, with no time limit between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.; thus, predictably, a few of the cons have moved their wives or sweeties into the area and spend all day every day "walking and talking with momma." Besides crowding facilities, such hoggini; fouls up the camp work schedui i. Yet the majority seem to appreciate the considerations here. And sometimes excessively so. Superintendent Weager remembers one old inmate who had spent most of his life in jail and who was especially taken with the Allenwood arrangement. When the old man finally was released he indicated a hesitancy and confusion. Three hours later he robbed an area bank — perhaps to get back to the comforts of home.
