Is the parole a sound me thod for dealing with those who havt violated the law? I think it la, and this opinion is shared by all who haw preceded me In this office. The public tends to think of the parole as a form of executive cle mency. Properly viewed, it is a me thod for dealing with prisoners and is analogous to the system, everywhere n vogue, of grading prisoners An A trade prisoner does not wear stripes md he has a certain amount of free lom Tho parole is one step beyond A grade and is also analogous to the uspended sentence. The prisoner ig jiven hts freedom on condition that he obey the law and comply with the erms of his parole The parole can revoked and he can be returned tr irison any time. Our are becoming schools of crime for the reason that we have virtually no facilities for segregation. Expressed in plain language, the S;ate >f Nor'h Carolina is paying $140,000 t year to maintain men in an atmos phere which will almost certainly In i distressingly large number of in stances, make hardened criminals ot them In this wise? Is it sound econo mies? Is North Carolina justified in ;pending money to destroy men when >ur resources for constructive build ng -education, public hearth, and so in -are depleted to the verge of a jeneral breakdown?

S. Funds More Counties Employing S uperintendents Than at Any Time in State’s History; Need For Winter WHI Be Very Great, Mrs. Bost Declares Hy MEM W. T. BDBT, (CmmiMomt of PaMc Welfare) Raleigh. Dee. 27 (AP>—Public wel fare workers in North Earotlna enter ed upon a greatly expanded program j dmrlng the past year. New opper [ tun it ire for human sendee were made possible when the Federal Government stepped Into the field of relief, mak ing a vast appropriation for this pur- PP*«* t When North Carolina began to bor row targe sums from the Reconstruc tion Finance Corporation, the public welfare offlolals were the channels chosen. In the malw, for the expendi ture of the relief funds. With the diatribut.on of this money to the counties, local welfare depart ments found themselves able to ex pand their activities. At last they could give relief o« a fairly adequate scale. They launched public and semi public projects which would put men to work. As long as funds continue to be made available, unemployed labor will be utilized and men will be given a chance to earn their daily bread, It has beens estimated that North Carolina must spend half a mil lion dollars each month of the winter if human destitution is to be relieved. Relief has taken on the proportions of a gigantic business. Loking over the State, we see pub lic welfare officials responding enthu siastically to the opportunity to meet needs so real to them. W* are proud that our State has so fine a corps of workers to render human service in this great crisis. North Carolina, we believe, realizes the value of its public welfare pro gram. A« an indication, we point to the fact that more counties are em ploying superintendents of public wel fare than at any other time in ovir State’s history. The law permits those smaller counties which elect to do so place the duties and responsibi lities of the welfare office upon the school superintendent. However, dur ing the past year, nine of these decid ed to employ superintendents of pub lic welfare. These counties were: Montgomery, Duplin. Scotland, Granville. Polk. Translvanla. Yancey Washington and Macon. The total number of full time and part-time superintendents of public welfare employed in the coun- I ties is now 62. Although the .past year hag seen little expansion among our institu tions among our institutions, the pro gram generally has been carried for ward kt a gratifying way. Our insti tutions have valiently endeavored to give more efficient service at greatly reduced costs, and have succeeded to a commendable deg Tee. Os special tnteaest is the mental hy giene work carried on in connection with the institutional program, men tal exainations being conducted in many instances to enable wise diag nosis of problems, and to serve as a guide for future treatment of cases. State psychologists have been called on frfequently to give menial exami nations to determine whether child ren are capablbe of learning in school, as a law passed in 1931 exempted men tally deficient children from attend ance. However, famllities have not Leads Jap Facists t """" 11 • /jjjfiL m Japan also has its Fascist Party and here is Kenzo Adachi, its leader. The new party has a representa tion of thirty-three seats in the Im perial Diet and its platform pro vides for a “Japanese Monroe Doc trine in the Far East." Adachi is known as the “opportunist p°lith cian,” having gained considerable flower due to events in Manchuria PAGE THREE been available to meet the whole de mand for such service Juat* a word as to the goals for i 933 In our rer«», b.enoia) repot' to the legislature, we again called in tention to the fact that provision should be made Cor negro feeblemind ed. either at the stat ehospttal for the inaane at Goldsboro or at Caawell Training school, since a special In stitution for this purpose seems out of the question. Also, we pointed out, along with other recommendation*, that an ade quate parole program would be eco nomical and humane; that juvenile delinquents ehrouid be studied at a central clinic before institutional com mitment; that' specialized training should be provided for the child with a combination of defects; that the State should take over and enlarge the North Carrolina industrial school for Negro girts at Efland. Our hope is that 1933 will witness continued expansion of the State pro gram to the end that the welfare of all may be better served. Always we emphasize the necessity oC attacking social evils, like dependency, dtsea.se, delinquency, deficiency, in childhood, so that our young may grow up strong healthy, happy and self-re liant. Only thus may we begin to prevent those human disasters that Lead to warped and stunted lives and sometimes vicious lives.
