DURANT MAN WOULD START
A SCHOOL IN JAIL
Prof. E. B. Hinshaw of Durant has conceived the idea of starting a school in the county jail at Durant. His notion is that the enforced idleness of the prisoners is productive of nothing but plunging them deeper into the abyss of crime, and that if given the opportunity many of them would avail themselves of it and at least get the rudiments of an education. At all events, his experiment, if he tries it, will be watched with interest and if it succeeds will doubtless be followed by other charity workers.
