Ailing Convict's Term Expires,
But He'll Stay as Guest of State
ly the Associated Press
JOLIET, 111., Oct. 8.—An old
convict whose sentence ends at
midnight tonight will remain at
Joliet penitentiary as a “guest of
the State” because he is home
less, friendless and dying.
Alex Rhode, 73, has spent most
of the ^ast 42 years in various
prisons. Currently, he has been
serving a 10-year sentence' for
larceny. He has saved up $600
and was looking forward eagerly
to his release tonight.
But for the last 90 days Rhode
has been in the prison hospital,
complaihing of stomach pajns
and nausea.
Today Warden Joseph E. Ragen
told him he could stay on "not
as a prisoner, but free to come
and go,if the doctor says you’re
able.”
Rhode replied,1 “I’m slipping
every day I’m here. I have some
money. Can’t I get into an out
side hospital?”
Warden Ragen told him all the
hospitals he had queried were
full.
Then Dr. Frank J. Chmelik,
prison physician, interrupted.
“If we put you out on the street
at midnight, where would you go?”
Rhode: “I’d sooner get out and
take my chances.”
Warden Ragen: “Who’s going
to pick you up when we put you
out?”
Rhode: “The bus.”
Dr. Chmelik: “Where would you
go?”
Rhode: “I don’t know—I might
stay on the bus until I got to
California.”
Dr. Chmelik: “We haven’t told
you this before, Alex, but you have
an inoperable cancer of the stom
ach. You have to have regular
blood counts and transfusions.
You could never stand the trip.”

“The outside world is a cold
place,” Dr. Chmelik said, "and no
one would care for you there.
Here these inmate-nurses will
treat you like their own father.”
“That right, Dad,” the nurse
grinned.
Rhode took a long look out the
window.
"I guess I’d better stay.” he
said. _
