Scarce prison periodical published at Draper Prison and representing “the entire inmate body of the Alabama penal system.” The magazine began publication in September 1951 and was issued monthly.

It also has several cartoons drawn by prisoners, a sports quiz, an article on baseball season, a brief biography of one of the prison staff members, a library corner, and more. The final leaf is a pin up of the month, featuring Marilyn Monroe. Two serial records located in OCLC, at the University of Alabama and at Samford University, also in Alabama.
