IT IS PLANNED as the "show. plaee' building of the prison as it will be the first place to which] visitors come. The last. building visited was the maximum security cell block,, which houses 240 individual cells six feet six inches by nine feet. Jones commented on some of the engineering problems of making the entire project, and particu- larly this building, escape proof. There couldn't be even a small nook in which an implement or weapon could be concealed, he said. Prisoners in the] maximum se- curity section will not be allowed out of that building or its fenced yard except under close guard. Underground tunnels connect this building to the general pur- pose building and to the hospital and psychiatric buildings, Jones said.

Angle looks like he has had enough and wants OUt;. of the construction and is ready to start work as soon as there is official confirmation that funds have been appropriated. Phases one and two include 22 buildings, he said. The second phase includes hous- ing for the prisoners who are kept at the center for rehabilitation. Jones pointed outto the tour- ing group the concrete screens us- ed in place of metal bars in the buildings. The idea, he said, is to help the psychological effect on the prisoners. The concrete screens serve the same purpose as bars, he said, but look a little better. If a prisoner tries to cut through one of those screens, Jones com- mented, he will be in for a sur- prise as there is a lot of steel in them.
