herself to prison, to sentence herself
for a year to the labor of scrubbing
floors, scouring tins and washing
dishes. It's rather heroic, too, for a
young woman to forsake a luxurious
home, legions of friends and an in
teresting social life to spend one year
But it's this unusual thing that an

Adams of Coulter House, originator
of the "Kate Adams Law," has done.
Some day during the Christmas
season Miss Adams will enter the
New York state reformatory at Bed
ford, N. Y., she will assume prison

of the prison woman.
Miss Adams will be a "prisoner"
in Glenn Mills Darling, Pa., Sher
wood prison, New York, and several
other women's prisons.
