Alameda County, Probation Offi
cer Argues for Indetermi
nate Sentence
.OAKLAND, April 13.— Christopher
Ruess, probation officer of Alameda
county, has taken the stand that the
"indeterminate sentence is the only so
lution of the problem of too lenient,
too severe and too varying sentences
now imposed by the superior judges of
the state.
Commenting upon recent remarks
upon the subject by . Prison Director
Sonntag and Justice Cooper of the ap
pellate court. Ruess said:
The best thinkers on prison problems io
this and other states hare for many years
advocated 'the Indeterminate sentence, several
eastern states have adopted It. and it will
inevitably come wherever men seek a scien-
tific solution of this problem.
By the indeterminate sentence plan con
victed men are simply sentenced to prison,
the jmljre does not say for how Xocg because
no judge' or convention of judges ever will
be able to prophesy just how long it will
take any man to reform and be safe at lib
erty. The prison warden and directors de
cide that from careful observation of the
man's progress, and must exercise discretion
in parole, at the end of two. three or more
years, pise the bad results of unwise paroles
will condemn them and their methods. On
the other hand, if men are unfairly denied a
chance of parole, the appellate court for the
district in which the prison is located can
well be utilized as a court of rehabilitation
to decide such questions. Then after a fur-
ther period on parole, satisfactory conduct
and progress can earn complete liberty.
This plan protects society from the Incur
able criminal class by keeping them perma-
nently in pri«oi. It also' relieres society %
from the nupport In prison of men who
should be earning thvir liTing at liberty.
• It sires erery prisoner the key to the prison,
the hope which makes and reawakes. the best
in men. '\u25a0-'.'}\u25a0*• .
