Letter from Ray G. Cowan, Circuit Court judge, regarding the parole of Otto P. Higgins, Inmate #55996-L. Cowan writes that he and Higgins were law students together, and attests to the character of his wife and family, and his belief that Higgins will "once again become a useful citizen." Higgins, the former director of the Kansas City Police Department, was sentenced to two years in the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth on charges of income tax evasion.
