UH the mcn nro pnrolcd ; yct, thc stnte is
obliged to gct along as well as possiblc by
tliis method until somo solution to tho
nroblcin is found.

are sent to Governor Hartness, who
nasses unon cach casc lndividuullv,
Tbcre arc many cnses of bo.vs and
young men whose reoords nre now in tho
procoss of investigation, nnd it has been
uhown thnt many of those are youths
from Massachusetts who have come into
Vermont as runaways. While in this
tney have committed theft or some
othcr offcnsc in order to provide them
selvcs with money whcrewith to exist.
Manv of thcsc bovs nre from 17 to 12-
years old and have good records prcvious
to their prcscnt incnrcoration.
It hns hoen suecpstpd that tho Rivrr-
sido Itcfonnntory at Itutland might bq
uscd ndvantageously to rciieve the prcs
ont congcstod s'tuntion at Windsor, but
e prison committec is averse to utilizing
thc available room thcrc for two roa
sons : First, tlio buiiding thut could bo
uscd for this purpose is in vory bad ro
nair and would rcnuirc thc exncnditure of
sevcral thousands of dollars to put it into

nnd. the stnto of Vermont has found by
oxporioncc that it is bad ponology to
houso mcn nnd wonicn together in t' o
snme institution, nll woman prisoncrs
convirtpd of offcnse in this state being
scnt to Rutland.
As tho problem is now shnping itsclf,
tho stttte, ppiu'ing nn ndditinn to the prcs-
stnte prison. must bc libcrnl in its
parole systom. or move thc IInno of Cor
rcction which is now part of the insti
tution at Windsor, to Hutlnnd. and in
thnt cnso the question ariscs, What will
bc donc with tlio women at Uutland?
This unusual situation will continue to
Im n problem for tho state until an nd
dition to tlic prescnt institution in built
wliich will provide for houslng more
prisoncrs. Stpps toward thin cnd cannot
be tnkon until ncxt month, when thc
logislnturo will moet. At thnt time it is
mid thnt it will be neccssary for thc
stnte to approprinto S100.000 nr morc for
