Officials Told To Check Prison Brutality GKKKNVILMO. Miss. (Al) -- Mississippi Penitentiary officials have :in days to investigate brutality charges and report back Lo U.S. District Court Judge William Kcady. Keady issued the directive Monday after civil rights lawyers a.skcrl Ihut prison officials be held in contempt of court for violating an order against corporal punishment. The judge's order against corporal punishment \v;is issued after his 1972 decision declaring the Parchrnan prison's conditions unconstitutional. Civil rights lawyers claimed that in rccwiL months inmates were beaten by guards. Kcady said he wonlti delay action on the contempt motion until prison officials report to him. He also told the officials to submit any new disciplinary rules imposed since the arrival of Supt. Jack Reed in December and security chief Robert Slrcis in February. Ready said after two days of hearings that Ihe new administration "should have an oppor tunity in Fully investigate ai those charges." The judge said he- would not act against any civilian guards accused of brutality until the officials give their report but 'the fact that some of the guards' names keep coming up is disturbing." Civil rights lawyer Herman Wilson, representing Hie in- nates, asked the judge Monday ,o hold in contempt the guards 'specifically named in affidavits" by inmates who charged ,hey were beaten. lie compared the Parch man itiiatiun to Watergate and said 'a man .seemingly of good will" had subordinates who did 'bad things" which their superior denied knowledge of. James Ward of the attorney general's office countered that Heed had dismissed some guards mentioned in past brutality charges. Ward said Reed should have a chance to investigate the others. i'iird also said that neither the inmates nor their lawyers contacted Reed or Streis about the alleged boatings. Kcady told prison officials they must put any IICAV regu la lions in writing and they must see to it t h a t inmates charged diseipliary offenses get written notice before their hearings. The new rules included two mentioned in testimony bv Streis and Sfit. Bobby Jolly, who is in charge uf the maximum security unit. One was a suspension of exercise privileges for up to five days at the unit if an inmate destroys a mattress or plumbing fixtures. Another, since revoked, called for taking mat- Iresse.s out lor airing during days after inmates were noisy at night. Ready reminded officials lhat his 1972 order slated inmates could be punished only "for conduct which violates an existing penitentiary rule or regulation," and then_ only after written notice 24 hours before a hearing before a disciplinary panel. IMttf, 1974 · 25 Trip Photos Can Be Fun ....If Just as you would have- your car inspected before taking a vacation trip to make sure it's running smoothly, check your camera. Shoot a test roll of film before leaving. If the pictures are satisfactory, can lie reasonably sure the camera is working properly. If not. bring it to a dealer and have him check it over. When you pack your camera for the trip, the first thing to do is "unpack" it and keep it handy for any photo scene that presents itself en route. It won L help to .see just the shot you want if your camera isn't easily available. A word of advice: film is perishable. Heat and humidity are harmful to film. In sum mer, don't put your camera or film in the trunk, glove com- reflect Ibis, parlmetiL. or on the rear-win-1 iow deck. The handiest place i "or your camera equipment is: on the seat be.sirtc you. CAR PICTUKKS While driving lo your cam- ming site, ymi will want to take 1 some pictures. It Is always best ; a ' s t o p the cur, but sometimes this is nut possible. If you must shoot from a moving car, shoot through the front window. Jf you shoot out of tlie side window, the foreground of y o u r picture will in? hlurry. Hold your camera as steady as possible without bracing it against the car, because vibration will blur ynnr pictures. Campers, more than other vacationers, have a love of the outdoors iuifl a f col ing for nature.
