They were men, and they came as part of an ex- perimental program that has both men and women working and living together in what is described as the first real co-ed prison in the United States. "The girls are prettier than I've ever seen them before, and I haven't heard a single swear word in two said Doro- thy Chase, superintendent. There now are 69 women and 13 men at Framingham. When the j program hits full swing, there will be about 120 men and 40 women. PACIFIC April Showers a-Speciai! April Showers spray deodorant 5 oz. plus Talc 4.5. Both for S1.29 b-Special.

"The women were somewhat apprehensive at first; they were afraid they'd be farced into the background and the men would get all the advantages and at- she said. "But instead, I think It will encourage the women to learn to get along with the men so they won't be used in future with men or women. "And besides, I certainly ttiiak having the man and woman together is more realis- old segregated system just encourages homosex- uality." Under the new program, the men and women at Framing- ham are together except for the they spend in dormitory- like cottages. No visiting is allowed between cottages, but all prisoners eat together, work together and have recreation periods to- gether in a main building which looks more like a junior high school than a prison. Framingham is a lEcniraum- security prison, and most pris- oners are eligible for parole within a year. For the men. the unlocked doors, the availability of privacy and absence of uni- formed guards is a stark con- trast to a maximum-security prison such as the state prison at Walpole.

FKDAY, APRIL 13 P.M. Just Jude By JUDE TURIC wading through a recent conversation, the subject turned to plastics. Until that time, it hadn't crossed my mind as to Jww much we really do rely on the plastics industry. Taking a quick look around the house, I scon found there'd be little left if plas- tics were removed. An average household would be completely lost. Our food is stored in little plastic containers and thrown out in big plastic bags. The place mats are plastic, as are many of our stirring utensils, mixing bowls, tum- blers and even the occasion- al letter-opener. Women rely on plastics every day, from the time they get up to the time they go to sleep. Combs, hairbrushes, tooth- brushes and rollers are all made of plastic. Cosmetics generally come in unbreak- able bottles, containers, and compacts; especially 1 i p- sticks. The drycleaners return our clothes wrapped in the stuff, we bay our meat and fish in plastic trays covered with plastic. Sandwiches which are wrapped in plastic, are made from bread which comes in plastic bags. Many of our clothes are manufactured from plastics, including the less expensive shoes, handbags, raincoats, hats and fashion boots. Home products come to us in the everlasting plastic bot- tles which the kids eventually carve up to make strange mother's day gifts to be used as ornaments. Not only do the manufactur- ers give us wax, detergents, dishwashing liquids and sham- poo in plastic bottles, they have us coat our floors with tough space-age plastics. When we're sick, the doc- tors use plastic tubes to tie what's missing together with what's slill there, and if we want to sea what's happened, we look through plastic-frame glasses. Motherhood doesn't even es- cape from the plastic jungle, as the glass baby bottle has been almost totally replaced by the plastic one; the crib bars are made of it and after a diaper change, plastic pants protect the rest of the outfit. Driving to the local car sbcw, one is often surrounded by plastic bits and pieces, from door handles, radio knobs, seats and seat belts to steering wheels and dashes. Once there, you find out- door displays protected from the weather by a large plas- tic dome. There are plastic chairs, tables, lamps and tough plas- tic waierbeds. Take-out services make use of plastic to supply food to customers, and writs out the bills with plastic pens. Much of our jewelery is made of it, from watchbands to earrings, all of which are stored in plastic cases. There are plastic credit cards and for those who can still remember cash, there are plastic check books and plastic covered ID cards to prove that you are who you are. And getting away from It all could prove fairly diffi- cult. Even this paper was deliv- ered to rural areas in bright blue, weather proof plastic.
