The government is spending; a lot of money building a prison camp in northern Iowa where they can ''house" 5000 prisoners of war. Instead of iising good Iowa laild where neede&*corn and food stuffs can be gr0wd, why not fix prison camps in the; south where the problem of keeping them warm in winter is far' less and where land is less valuable. Texas has had more than its share of big pay war institutions. It has the room. Why not give them a few prison camps? And who wants a prison camp nearby, anyway? Or, if it is true that many present army training camps are to be abandon-3d, why not convert these into prison quarters. From now on there will not be so many soldiers in the United States. Our trained forces are rapidly being sent overseas. We won't need so many training camps anymore. Why waste more land and money. Why not save a few dollars here and there. Or has nobody though^ of such a policy?
