as "the t Diversity of Another Chance."
Dr. Moore cures more for results than

Dr. Moore broached bis self govern

them that it rested entirely with them
selves whether they were granted au

of inmates increased, but the number
of reported infractions of the rules
was 2,002 less than during the previ

of prisoners elected by their fellows.
On July 12 of tUis year each of the
fourteen tier* elected two councilmen

reports of misbehavior by Inmates. ,
Tie council has a president, who is
