Parole List To Be Signed

Dr. E.H. Rorick, medical member of the State Board of Administration, announced he would sign the list of 63 paroles recommended by Mrs. Margaret McNamara, matron of the Delaware Girls’ Industrial Home. Dr. Rorick recently refused to sign the list, saying he had discovered that a number of the girls on parole had given birth to illegitimate children and their maternity expenses had been paid by the state. Dr. Rorick said he merely refused to sign the parole list in order to direct attention.
