To a news Story of a couple of weeks ago from Raleigh the Warden of Central prison. Sam Harrison was quoted As saying that overcrowding in that institution has become so critical that the Security staff Ini longer controls the internal affairs. The Penitentiary designed to House the to highest inmates was built for a Ca pad in of 860 that was 92 years ago. Today the Central prison population is 1,350 alongside the Cellblock Are lined with cots where prisoners bed Down in open dormitory fashion. In such conditions control of what toes i Alining the inmates is a simple impossibility says the Warden. A we have Periphery control in the sense of Walls and gun towers we have internal supervision in the sense of one officer overseeing 140 inmates in a dormitory i it dial Doest t dictate control what he umm in died is that with enough Walls and fences and men with guns it is possible to keep the hundreds enclosed in a Small geographical area but no longer is it possible to take the Small Steps necessary to maintain the peace inside there is no Way to identify. And segregate trouble breeders. To control effectively the creation or gathering of weapons and summer is coming on Strong prison guards know that summer heat intensifies discontent and is often the last element that puts rioting into Force and still North Carolina is More intent on its political differences than the Likely consequences As one reporter writes.

Russell Kirby of Wilson. Billy Watkins of Granville. Allen Barbee of Nash and Larry eagles of Edgecombe carrying the Ball. The plan was effectively disposed of instead. Sen Kirby said Quot there Are other ways we can go. This is a policy question i Don t like this Way of doing business., without hearing and with the legislature recognizing what s going after All. He added theres another legislative session coming up in about eight months time to take a Quot comprehensive look Quot at the system the state can Only Hope that there will be time that the summer of 1976 won t go Down on the books As the time when the problems exploded in the face of political one up Manship by Holt Mcpherson Enterprise editor emeritus today is being observed generally As father s Day a time for putting dad on a Pedestal just As mothers were Only a Short time ago when their special Day was observed most fathers As mothers never cease to be proud of their identification and they react accordingly by trying to set the Best example they can for their children inasmuch As this Honor is being paid to them they tend to carry it on and there Are some memorable examples to cite on this Day As fathers meet their role and respond to it let us cite a few he was ashamed of himself he asked that he be Given one More Chance. Quot in be made a he said to the officer Quot and i m the policeman and the Man talked further it was t a major crime but the father had broken a Law a you said the Man. A i did t think As i should have before this happened since i be been with you. However a lot of things have gone through my mind Quot what Quot asked the officer about a lot of said the Man. A More than anything else though. I m sorry for my boy his father has let him Down Quot the officer telling the Story has a further Point to make he said that he had decided As a part of the investigation. To Call the son in for a talk the son came promptly to say he was sorry about the charge against his dad but i ii say this. The son told the officer. Quot my dad is a Good Man he s always been a Good father 1 11 stick with him Quot the officer s conclusion when you see a father respecting his son. And the son respecting his father like i saw. Then i knew this Man was worthy of As much consideration As one could give to him you can judge a father much of the time by the respect with which he is held by his children Paul Harvey has described a father As a thing that is forced to endure childbirth Winston Salem s Choice cast hmm a a a virtue we the Piedmont triad s eyes will turn toward the Northwest Corner in the week ii head As Winston Salem voters go to the a oils to decide a Bond Issue the matter before the electorate there is whether to borrow 535 million to finance three different projects one is easy a Mere 1 million to finance four new fire millions the second is a bit More Uncertain lib 5 million to build a new downtown City administration building and the third is most difficult of All $17 million to do a total rebuilding of the Winston Salem coliseum which the City largely regards As a Quot White elephant Quot of Long standing critics of the last of the three items tend to View it As an ill considered Quot ego trip Quot Tor twin Cit ians who cannot abide the thought of Greensboro getting head of them. With its m c. Benton convention enter Winston Salem has become the undisputed convention Magnet for the triad but its Small fit too or so seats and elderly coliseum has Long since been upstaged by the Greensboro War memorial coliseum 16,800 seats As a sports and big name entertainment facility. Winston Salem has been pondering what to do with its coliseum for several scars an unattractive Bond Market has been a major Factor in putting off a Day of reckoning its director James a Dairymple is pushing hard for an at fir our religions native decision by the voters on tuesday Quot Winston Salem has become the convention City of the Carolinas in the last few years and i see no reason Why Winston Salem cannot become the entertainment and sports capital of the Carolinas a a he says twin City news reporters then called James Oshust. Director of Greensboro s going operation to see what he thought. Oshust did t really want to get involved in View of his obvious prejudice but he did wind up saying enough to let people know he thinks the Winston Salem people Are pursuing an unnecessary pipe dream if he were advising the City of Greensboro whether to replace its coliseum exhibition building and auditoriums at today a prices he was quoted As saying he would probably say no on the basis of feasibility. High Point s opinion As far As we know. Has not been asked and we would Stop Short of being so presumptuous As to offer unsolicited advice even though this City is a resident member of what sometimes purports to be a cooperating three City Complex. If w Aston Salem is willing to pay the Price who Are we to object we live never endorsed the idea that any of the three cities should subjugate their own identities in this business of close neighbor cooperation we can Only wish Winston Salem the Wisdom to make the right decision on tuesday. The i Umi Btl. Joi Al be met a maw la e always said Jimmy was a Good of boy. Right fellas a Washington merry go round without an aesthetic a father is a thing that growls when it feels Good and laughs when he a scared a father never feels worthy of the worship in a child a eyes lie s never quite the hero his laughter thinks never quite the Man his son believes him to be. And this worries him. Sometimes a father is a thing that gets very angry when the first school grades Aren t As Good As he thinks they should be he scolds his son. Although he knows ifs the teacher s fault fathers Are what give daughters away to other men who Aren t nearly Good enough so they can have grand it Hildren who Are smarter than anybody s. Father s make bets with insurance companies about who will live the longest one Day they lose and the bet s paid off to the part of them they leave behind i Don t know where father goes when he Dies but i pc an idea after a Good rest wherever he is. He won t just sit on a Cloud and wait for the girl he s loved and the children she bore hell be Busy there too. Repairing the stairs oiling the Gate improving the streets smoothing the Way dads have had their ups and Downs throughout history he has t always been As popular As he is this Day in biblical times it was considered a crime punishable by death for a son to disagree with his father.

But Indian women had their revenge an Odd Law decreed that if a father got into debt his Wile could sell him into slavery to pay off his creditors in these present times in the ended states statistics show that women own an Ever increasing portion of the National wealth. Some sociologists even believe that Fop s in danger of becoming the Quot forgotten Quot Man but while he May be shorn of his tyrannical Powers the an Nual outpouring of affection with gifts and sentimental greetings shows that father s place in hts family s heart continues Strong even in these parlous times there Are cards All manner of them to brighten his Day with occasional diversions such As Quot Happy father Day to the Man who has everything inside the caption reads Quot mortgaged to the Hilt Quot or. Quot to dad. Who is always Calm. Cool and. Collected from a the late general of the army. Douglas Macarthur is the author of this a father s prayer Quot build me a son.
