CELL "SOLOS" ARE A MUST
IN FRENCH PRISONER REFORM
Paris, wardens consider solitary confine-
ment so successful that they require kill-
ers and hardened hoodlums to work, eat,
exercise and even go to church alone.
The American attitude is exactly the
opposite, explains Austin MacCormick,
executive director of the Osborne Associ-
ation, a national organization for cor-
rectional reform. "American wardens
almost never keep men in solitary," he
says, "except as severe punishment. We
understand the French emphasis on op-
portunity for thought and avoidance of
contamination, but we do not agree.
"At modern American prisons, we
encourage prisoners to learn to live
peacefully with others, and to make a
successful return to organized society."
