Do you know what constitutes the successful administration of a jail? Have you ever pondered the duties of Housekeeping or the care and well-being of the inmates, menus, preparation, and serving of food, medical care, and schools? Neither had we.

League members are being treated to a double feature this month. Seeing the new jail will boost one's civic pride but in so doing it will make one question the day to day function and administration of this new responsibility of the Police Dept.

Wednesday, February 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the Police Station, 1455 S. Beretania room 206 (near administrative offices) is a date to mark and keep. Deputy Chief Arthur M. Tarbell will tell League members and guests of his investigative trip to mainland jails lost fall for its significance in application to Honolulu.

He will tell of the security within the jail, solitary confinement, the confidence placed in "trustees", pre-release counseling and release procedures. In a reflective mood last week while meeting with three Leaguers, Mr. Tarbell described jail administration as a complete life cycle from birth to death, neither is uncommon.
