HELEN HELP US By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL Young Prison Inmates Write Heavy Letters Rap: I'm an inmate at Trenton State Prison and my struggle is, in the long run to keep the best within me alive and functional as long as I'm able. The p u b l i c readily sympathizes with the plight ot the hungry, the uneducated, the socially deprived -- even deprived animals. Everyone can describe what he thinks is the worst human predicament, but if I were asked, I'd say it's loneliness. It's the biggest hunger of all. Prison can do many cruel things to a person, especially when he has no family or friends and it makes him realize how alone he is. It's like living in a room without windows, feeling as cold as death around the heart. I'm making every effort to rehabilitate,myself,'but I need contact with the outside. Tins is my way of reaching out to someone who might read my letter and think about prisoners as human beings. We are. you know, even though we're paying for our anti-social acts. -- No. 54744. Dear Helen And Sue: Our local paper, the Grants Pass (Ore.) D a i l y Courier recently carried a letter from a young inmate of Oregon State 'Prison. It is aimed at youthfu' offenders and it says, in part: "To any of you who are ir trouble with the law: "Whether you have been popped for a misdemeanor or a felony, the chances are strong · that unless you change your MALL TWIN O Fct.

"Oregon State Prison is rela .ively cool, but after the first day, you realize that, regardless of the sentence you brought vith you, you might be doing ife.

Cromie retired last March as a columnist on t h e Chicago Tribune, which he joined in L936.

Ford's 1976 election campaign. Since economic miracles have been forever sought but seldom found, some economists now concede that the campaign ssues are being written at the moment, and that the writing is' ooking even grimmer than before. Consultants and other seers now are revising their outlook La include a continuation of re- cessionary factors into 1975. Poor growing conditions are expected to force food prices higher. The jobless rates is headed to six per cent. Unpleasant as they are, these easily understood indicators of performance are incre symptoms of underlying difficulties that some business analysts term grave and that few con- most diabolical. It goes like this: The thrifts offer only 5.25 per cent on passbook savings. With higher rates available from others, m eluding Uncle Sam, withdraw their funds. people This is disintermediation. The loan-making abilily of the thrifts -- saviirgs and loan associations and savings banks ^- is thus impaired. The .housing industry goes into a recession. While people might want houses they can't finance them. Neither can the builder finance himself. The banks which lend to builders specify that the borrower maintain a inimum net worth in order to 3inain credit-worthy. But tha uilder can't sell enough homes } maintain his net worth.
