Tills treatment of prisoners by the Immunity process with the Idea of turning out good Canadians, sounds well on paper, but It ttikes some thought In the working out. H Is the little details which count in getting results. That Is the wholeHifng. To turn out a good citizen' out of a bad prisoner Is a hard job, and is not always accomplished. Bill to turn out a good citizen out of a prisoner who has got Into the tolls because'he was caught 111 making his first had break Is not so hard. These latter are chiefly the men who have to be dealt with at the Leth- bridge jail. Most of them are first offenders. 'They have, to be shown where they were wrong.'and he set right. That is where the .'humanity process comes In. Building Roads Look at the accompanying pictures, and see if you wouldn't think that a gang of Jinsky homesteaders were building roads in Sunny Southern Al berta. There is 'only one giveaway and that is the military looking man with the military looking cap. He is the guard, and he is in charge of ten trusties from.the provincial jail. Toes have just completed the day's work on the trunk road east of the city. In a few days they will have reached Coaldaie. and before winter 'sets in, travellers will be able from '-ethbridge to Bow Island over one'of tiie best pieces of road to be folind inywhere.ln the province of Alberta Two gangs of prisoners, or trusties' as hey are called, have been working .all summer on the roads in Southern icrta.
