Nearly sixty prisoners responded.
For tho most part, the complaints
were over minor matters.
A pathetic feature, however, was
that almost every ono of these men
pleaded wilji tho eommitteo to tako
some notion to mako it possible- for
them to got hoeka and underwear.
Some wear only old rags for un
derclothes that they had not changed
for months except to wash, whilo
others had more remnanlH of worn

begged for relief. Only those whoso

"In effect," ho snid, "the rather
