Nearly Four Times as Many In State
Columibia, June 19.--White mn in
the .state penitentiary outnumber ne
gro men nearly four to one, there be
ing 151 white men and only 12. negro
inen. The majority of these white ien
are also young men. Last year ahout
this time there were 89 white men and
1416 negro men, making an addition of
62 niore white men to the population
in only oie year. ,
- These figures are accordlng to See
retary U. Croft Williams of the -;taitc
board of -public iwelfare, who iadc an
unoilicial visit to the state peniten
tiary this week.
- There are also five white womnun
and 43 negro -women in the state pen
itentIary at the present tine. Last
year there .w'erp 25 negro women and
three white women.
-Negro men are shifted from the
penitentiary 'to the state farms wihen
crop conditions demand it, but the

Mr. Williams says that lie was par
ticularly struck with the number of
young men in the 'prison. These young
men are -healthy and appear to be of
normal intelligence, Mr. rWilliais
says. "At the time of life when they
siould 'be building up :businesses and
homes and In other Nyays doing their
part in the affairs of their commutini
ties, they are serving time In a state
prison for stealing, killing or some
other grave offenses," lie says. "Many
have 'been startled 'at t'he Idea of a
crime wave going over the country.
.ilIowever, there can be no doubt that
for the last year crime has increased
in South Carolina -and this increase
has been inuch larger among the
whites than among the negrobs,"
"As there are thousands of youthful
soldiers at Camp Jackson and as
these are drawn from all parts of the
country andi have a certain per cent.
of anti-social characters among them,
It might be expected that some would1
find their way to the penitentiary. Yet
the growth of the white 'population
of the qpenitentiary cannot .he attrih,ut
ed entirely to the pi-oxinity of the
camp as there are a num'ber of South
C iolinians in it."
"It was dinner time when I visited
tle institution," Mr. Williams says, "so
I went into the dining room and
kitchen. I found the fare wholesome
and well 'prepared. The inmates
showed a "'od spirit and no cvi
