Prison officials held a press. day last week, inviting news- men to come and See the im- provements that had been made at the penitentiacy, embattled as it is by federal court orders and a tight budget. i WJ I. (Bill) Hollovell, the in- terim suoeriLtend]ent of the i institution, is inpressive. His credentials are good, and he handles himself well with the press. It was interesting to note that Hollowell has never met Jack Reed, the man selected by the prison board to succeed Hollo- well as the permanent superin- tendent of the prison. Reed, a penal expert ,from California, is supposed to take over his du- ties after J, anuary 1. The penitentiary is in transi- tion now .... switching from the trusty guard system .to civilian guards. 2, total of 225 civilian guards are now employed, and they have been attracted mainly by a .salary which starts: at $725 a month. The show for the press last week was a staged event, ea- turing Hollowell, penitentiary board chairman Charles Ri&dell, State Sen. Corbet Lee Patridge of Schlater and Sen. Robert Crook of Ruleville. Newsmen were allowed free run of the big prison. But the unanswered questions about what is best for the state's pen were 'largely unanswwered. There is talk, for instance, of developing a new cluster of buildings to replace the ar- flung camps. This would be confined to about 2,500 acres.

Narcotics .are still a problem at this penitentiary. The energy crisis is probably going to bring the day for the unique conj.ugal visits from Sunday, w,hen gas stations are closed, back to Sat- urday. Homosexuality, according to Hollowell, is also still ,a problem. Overall, Parchman is a de- pressing place. Here we 'have the recalcitrants of society, those ,who find it difficult to', live within the laws and mores i that have been prescribed. I Yet, even with all its prob- lems, most observers give Bill Holl;owell good marks as the in- terim superintendent. Many of the inmates expressed the hope that he will stay on, in ,some role, after the new superin- tendent tkes over his duties.
