April 28, 1916 ~ PRISONERS WILL COOK.

April 28, 1916

Only Bread and Water for Those Who Don't in Independence.

Marshal Harris has established a school of cooking for city prisoners at Independence. The food of prisoners has been a little high and the marshal thought economy could be practiced if the prisoners do their own cooking. Yesterday the pots and kettles, long in discard, were brightened up and ranged along the municipal kitchen. "If any of the prisoners do not know how to cook I will teach them," said the marshal yesterday, "and those who refuse to cook will have to go without or have bread and water."

The cooking will be done by prisoners after working hours.
