OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 24.
That tho clemency power of tho gov

vividly shown by the pretexts on
which prisoners In tho stato penltcn

Some of tliesii prisoners aro freed
without a single recommendation

resolved Into nn Investigator who
also acts as a buffer for the gover

A study of tho 1,433 pardons, pa

range of pretexts und pleas are used
to gain prisoners' freedom.
