IIANES ATLANTA. Ga. (AP)—"It is not ight to shut a man like a mad log in a cage, whip him with a ubber hose and work him as a mital drayman might work a sick horse." Georgia has come a long way along the road to reforms since former Gov. Ellis Arnall, then 35. n September 1943 gave a special session of the legislature that description of conditions in the state prison system. The chains, the caging in sweat- x>xes, the whipping and sadistic jrutality by guards officially are no more. "The function of a prison sys- em," Arnall said, "is to rehabili- ate and provide useful training !or the inmates." A nationally known penologist, pressed into service by Gov. Carl S. Sanders, again has reported hat there virtually is no rehabili- ation or education for the 10,000 convicts in Georgia. Sanders, 38, moved quickly after receiving the report from Joseph E. Ragen, director of the II- inois penal system and for many years warden of Joliet, 111., pen- tentiary. Sliakeup A shakeup in the State Department of Corrections shunted the $17,6QO-a-year director to a minor job in state government. His chief assistant plans to retire. Sanders dug into the state surplus to make $2.5 million available for prison reform. He will ask the 1964 legislature to appropriate millions more. He hired Fred Hallford, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation official with 23 years service, as prison chief. The prison situation has raged off and on as a controversy for more than 30 years. In 1931 Robert Elliott Burns wrote a book, "I Am a Fugitive From a Georgia Chain Gang" which was made .into a movie the following year. Burns told of inhumanities in the prison system, from which he escaped twice. Burns said in his book that he accompanied a flophouse acquaintance to the robbery of a grocery store in 1922 which netted $5. He described himself as a jobless and hungry World War I veteran. Burns was captured, sentenced and placed in a chiin gang working on the roads. He escaped two months after receiving the 6-to-10-year sentence and fled to Chicago where, seven years later, he was a $20,000-a- year magazine editor. His first wife told authorities in 1929 of nis whereabouts and he was returned to the chain gang. Burns escaped again the following year, went to New York and wrote the book. Three New Jersey governors refused to extradite him to Georgia after Burns became a respected tax consultant in Newark. Deny Official Georgia, including then- Gov. Eugene Talmadge, called Burns' story untrue. But in 1937, Gov. E. D. Rivers ordered chain gangs eliminated. Arnall went further shortly after becoming governor in January 1943. The legislature at his behest passed laws to abolish the use of leg irons, chains and manacles. Other legislation abolished striped uniforms and established the Board of Corrections. Guards were told that use of the whip would mean immediate dismissal. Arnall kept thinking of Burns and the black eye his book had given Georgia. The governor Interviewed the former convict but the State Pardon and Parole Board refused to free him as long as Burns remained a fugitive. In 1945, Burns returned to Geor gia, telling his anxious second wife, Clara, "in all people's lives there comes a time when one must show courage." With Arnall as his counsel, Burns faced the board. It erased the prison sentence and restored full civil rights. HP died in a Veterans Hospital at the age of 65 in 1955. Since Arnall's day. various legislative committees have reporter; on the prisons. Some were critica' and reported a lack of rehabilitation. A group of legislators salr last year that some units of the system were too nice for the convicts. Georgians generally went theli way with little thought of the pri sons. But the nation was shocked in 1951 when 40 prisoners at the rock quarry prison for incorrigihles a i Get the wax • out of your ears with KERID«Droos! THRn . i Y DRUG Btifoi'd ate a Christmas dinner ind then cut their heel tendons vith razor blades. Plot prison authorities described It is a plot to greak up the prh^on. They said the men had complained of long hours of work in nclement weather. Other complaints were that the men did not •eceive privileges accorded in other penal branches. There were no changes in the rules. Five years later Buford was in he headlines again. Forty-one convicts in two days smashed their legs with 20-pound sledges. They said brutality and cursing by gunixls drove them to the act. A legislative investigating committee said the charges of cruelty and brutality at the state's "Little Alcatraz" were not substantiated. The committee did find that profanity and abusive language were used by the guards and supervisors and that some "have on occasion skipped and cuffed prisoners." This, the committee said, should be stopped. Today, "Little Alcatraz" is being dismantled and its inmates removed to the main prison at Roidsville. Modem dormitories will Ix* built to house misdemeanor prisoners. The now quarters for misdemeanor prisoners will include a toy repair shop—a far cry from the wielding of 20-pound sledges in 100-degree heat and rock dust.
