Correction Center Chief I Jaycees Need To Be Ernest Timpani Support For Callanan Park tendent of the Washington Correc- tions Center at Shelton, which is still under construction. Dr. Garrett Heyns, Director of the Department of Institutions, made the announcement today. Timpani, 44, will assume his new position on July 1 and will work out of the Department's cen- tral office in Olympia until the adult corrections center opens in late 1964 or early 1965. ROGER F. MAXWELL, assoc- iate superintendent of classifica- tion and treatment at the refor- matory, will be acting superintend- ent of the institution until a per- manent superintendent is named, Dr. Heyns said. "Tr. Timpani has been an out- standing superintendent since he took charge of the reformatory in 1958," Dr. Heyns said. "Under his guidance the institution has been converted from a custodial prison to an active, progressive rehabilitation center where young adults by the hundreds have been steered back to lives of produc- tivity and usefulness." Dr. Hevns said that Tlmpani's appointment was made long be- fore the new institution wlll open so he will be in a position to co- ordinate from the beginning the entire, complex process of putting the new corrections center mto operauon.
