WHY WAIT FOR TRAGEDY?



IF a fire started at the Ingleside
County Jail, the inmates would
die like rats — we would have an-
other Columbus penitentiary holo-
caust."

Thus Sheriff William J. Fitzger-
ald, San Francisco's popular and
efficient sheriff recently described
the county jail at Ingleside where
up to 600 minor offenders are housed
in a structure erected over fifty
years ago.

■'With the exception of the outer
walls, the building is of wood. And
we haven't an}' water pressure. The
prisoners wouldn't have a chance.
They'd be trapped in their cells.
They would be smothered and
burned to death."

Sheriff Fitzgerald stated that to
modernize and fireproof the jail
would cost nearly as much as build-
ing a new jail and the problem of
the location, the high cost of guard-
ing etc., would still be unsolved.

These are only a few of the rea-
sons why the people of San Fran-
cisco should pass the Jail Bond Is-
sue that will be voted on at the No-
vember general election. In fact
why they must vote in favor of a
new jail, for San Franciscans could
never forgive themselves if a fire did
break out with the conditions as
they are at the present time at the
county jail.

By unceasing work in his spare
hours, Sheriff Fitzgerald has tried to
bring this message to the people of
his home city. Luncheon clubs,
civic societies and other organiza-
tions have heard his plea for a new
jail and with the Ohio disaster he
has redoubled his efforts so as to
prevent a repetition of that terrible
occurance in San Francisco.

The Sheriff's statement points out
that the local jail is not only badly
overcrowded but is also of obsolete
design.

Prisoners locked in their cells
would have little chance of escape in
the event of a fire, even if the guards
succeeded in unlocking each of the
individual cells, declared Fitzgerald.
He said :

"Shaped like a huge 'Y,' with the
cells blocks in the two arms of the
'Y,' and a cupola in the center, with
the only means of exit from the cells
through the cupola and the stem of
the 'Y,' the ancient structure offers
an ideal site for a colossal tragedy.

WILLIAM J. FITZGERALD






Sheriff, City and County of San Francisco





"If fire ever broke out in the cup-
ola, and began eating its way back
into the cell blocks, every prisoner
might be suffocated or burned to
death.

"There is no master locking sys-
tem. Every cell must be unlocked
individually. Even if the guards
could fight their way through smoke
and flame to the 200 cells, it would
take a long time to unlock them all
and then the prisoners would still
have to dash through the blazing
cupola. Fire fighters would have to
battle their way in by the same
route.

"The jail was built in 1872 to ac-
commodate400 prisoners. \\'e had to
pack in 583 at the peak period last
year."

To care for the overcrowding, a
loft was converted into a dormitory,
Fitzgerald said. This he declared,
has makeshift sanitary conveniences
and like the rest of the jail, is badly
ventilated and badlv lighted.



Jail No. 3, the woman's jail at
Balboa Park is still older and also
