OHIO PENITENTIARY BOXES BARRED
In accordance with a policy established at the start of the depression the friends and relatives of inmates in Ohio penitentiary will not be permitted to send Thanksgiving Day boxes of food and confections to the prisoners, it was announced last week by Warden C. Woodard. A customary special Thanksgiving dinner will be served at the institution. The menu will include roast pork and dressing, sweet potatoes, celery, pumpkin pie, coffee and apples, Warden Woodard said. The reason for the decree banning Thanksgiving boxes is that many families would make sacrifices in order to remember friends and relatives who are paying their debt to society, when as a matter of fact the inmates will fare better Thanksgiving day than many persons outside the penitentiary. In addition to the special Thanksgiving dinner, Warden Woodard hopes that funds will be sufficient to provide cigars and candy for the inmates.
