Senator Hiram Johnson of California today filed with the secretary of state By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Dec. 30.—A nationwide campaign to “humanise” tho prisons of the United States has been undertaken by the Gray Brotherhood, an organization of reformed ex-convicts, according to a former inmate of Sing Sing who served IO years behind gray stone walls. Another . object of the campaign is to counteract anarchy for, he said “of the 500’000 convicts, men and women, who annually emerge from American prisons fully 90 percent are potential Bolshevists.” This man, a product of the New York slums, who not only redeemed his own life but saved two younger brothers from criminal careers, all as the result of the Mutual Welfare work at Sing Sing of which the Gray Brotherhood movement is an offshoot, declared that American penal institutions are being surreptitiously flooded with radical literature, with leaflets of “hope to the oppressed” and that the secret movement to Bolshevize the nations prisons is being combatted from th# inside. He said that, supported by the efforts of 18,000 members of this Gray Brotherhood, its unnamed leader known as the Gray Brother hopes to make prison reform a plank in the platform of one of the big political parties in the next presidential campaign. He‘ is reputed to be a man of great influence in Washington and to be the intimate of sev-| eral senators. The former Sing I Sing inmate said that the Gray j Brother was back of a prospective I ’nvestigation of Joliet, Illinois, pris-! on, intended to be the first of the Brotherhood's national prison reform program. “If the Gray Brother should come in here now and tell me to jump out of that window,” (a four story leap) “I’d do it at once”, confided announcement of his candi- da5j“r,‘he repiiblican nomination j ;i>7'formVYma”e “oT Sing““sbTg“ iH'nrlpnf^ n^    ^,an lnd®T i “We all would trust him with our pendent candidate for endorsement <    ^ at the South Dakota primary in >ve» a»d. believe me, this pnson J investigation backed by him is go at March.
