Inmates Given Employment in Iowa Officials Expect No Outbreaks DES MOINES Aug 9 Prison riots of which there have been a number recently were due largely to unemployment in the penal institutions in the opinion of Chairman A M McColl of the state board of control Mr McColl contrasted conditions In some of the larger state and federal institutions Iwith those at Iowa prisons to show the greater llklihpod of outbreaks where no systematic employment program has been developed There have been very few escapes andno uprisings of prisoners in Iowa institutions he said since the establishment pf prisonfarms and industries The last outbreak of consequence was at Anamosa and followed an unavoidable suspension of the small industrial plants then in operation Chairman McColl claims that a greater percentage of prisoners are employed steadily in the Iowa institutions than In the prisons of any other state The board has adopted the policy that all able bodied men she have regular work of some kind during their imprison ment This has been worked but to such anextent that duringthe summer season it is difficult to find men who can be spared from one prison factory1 to the state farms for sea sonal work Difficulties with prisoners Mr McColl said usually break outin cycles Mid the news of outbreaks ini other states prompts the local officials to take extra precautions as was done fallowing
