Everyone makes mistakes, now it's time to help

To the Editor:

Someone should find what Mary and Gracie Stone are permitted to have in girls school and publish the list so that some church group or individuals could send them gifts. What are the regulations about visitors? What is the address of the school?

They made a mistake but now they need help. Now the idea is not punishment but correction. (the Wabash Valley Correctional Institution with correctional officers)

Stationary and postage stamps would help them stay in contact with their friends.

They will need help when they are released from the school to get work to pay off their obligation.

One teacher said that they are brilliant girls. A mistake should not prevent them from becoming successful adults.
