r.NEW YOR.K Jan. 9.- A nation
wide, campaign to "humanlio" tho
prisons of the United States has boon
undertaken by tho Gray Brother
hood,' an organttatton of reformed
ex-convicts, according to a former
Inmate of Sing Sing who served 10
yoars behind gray stono walls.. An
other object of tho campaign Is to
counteract anarchy, for, ho said, "of
tho 500,000 convicts, men and wo
men, who annually emergo from
American prisons fully 90 per cent
are potential Bolshevists."
This 'man, a 'product of ihe New
York slums, who not only redeemed
hts own lifo but saved two younger
brothers from criminal careers, alt
as the result ol tho Mutual Welfare
work at Sing Sing, of which the
Gray Brotherhood movement Is an
offshoot,, declared that American
penal Institutions are being surrep
titiously flooded with radical litera
ture, with leaflets of "hope to the
oppressed," and that the secret
movement to Bolshevlze the nation's
prisons is. being combatted .from the

political parties In the next presi
dential campaign. He is reputed to
be' a .man of great influence in Wash
ington and to be the intimate of
several senators. The 'former Sing

Brother was back of a prospective

Brotherhood's national prison re
"If'the Gray Brother, should come
