and dedi cated proponents of prison re habilitation believe from the bot tom of their hearts that a re creation of basic character is pos sible within prison walls Erie Stanley Gardner known to millions of American mystery story devotees and to added millions elsewhere around the world is a wonderful Exhibit A in proof of this general obser vation Our correspondence acquaint anceship began a year or so ago by reason of our mutualinterest in a lifer named Tom Runyon hi the Iowa State Penitentiary Run yon died a few weeks ago The commentary I did on his death came to Erie Stanley Gardners attention As I prepare the manuscript for this visit with you I have before me an extended letter from Mr Gardner one that couldnt have taken less than a half day put of bis bUsy life on Rancho Paiisano Temeculaf Califtirnia The same word age mailed to the Saturday Evening Post or any nationally circulated magazine would bring Gardner a check for several thousand dollars But to me and as a measure of his for prison reform and penology it was for free Interest in Principle In my previous visit with you I drew on that remarkable docu ment for his post mortem shall I say of the Tom Runyon case Inthis I quoted the follow ing from the Gardner letter I hold no brief for Runyon the bank robber or murderer of 1932 My interest is with the Tom Runyon of 1951 to 1957 And it was Gardners conten tion expressed several times and in several different ways that the Tom Runyon of the past several years was a wholly different Tom Runyon from the young man who as a bank bandit took part in the slaying of a North Iowa farmer enroute to an early morning church service In this previous commentary I passed along as faithfully as I could Erie Stanley Gardners sition with respect to Tom Run yon That position incidentally was just 180 degrees apart from that held by the Iowa Parole Board who blocked the way to Runyons release from prison even if he had been able to get around a Federal statute or two Minnesota Case Cited Perhaps Gardner suggests near the bottom of Page 6 of his extended letter the case of Tom WINNERS TALK WITH NIXON Sandra Owen Navarre Ohio and Dana Bennette Denver

State Dulles as saying at the Capi tol that Eisenhowers stomach upset was due to his having eaten some blueberry pie Hagerty said Eisenhower did have blue berry pie Sunday but that he was unable to say whether it was a contributing factor to the Presi dents illness Hagerty indicated pie is not an approyeditem in the Presidents strict diet But he sajd Eisenhow er had been eating pie some times

Nixon apparently has de cided his best chance for winning the 1960 Republican presidential nomination is to be labeled as an Eisenhower Republican In the last few days Nixon has gone a long way toward
