Letter from Dan L. Fennell regarding the parole of Otto P. Higgins, Inmate #55996-L. Fennell writes that he has known Higgins since high school and later worked with him while serving as president of the Kansas City Safety Council, and states his belief that Higgins is "entirely repentant" and intends to become "a useful and law abiding member of the community." 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.
