"Criminologists and penologists universally agree that the Wayside Honor Rancho of the Los Angeles county jail system is a great, forward step in county penology.The Rancho, however, also has its faults, many of which are recognized by the men who run the institution, located in the rolling Castaic valley, 40 miles north of Los Angeles. . ."
