PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 10 - THE CRY OF THE BEATEN WOLVES

be granted visits by members of his family. I immediately realized that not one of the prisoners would be foolish enough to believe in a reduction of his sentence, but that any of them would do almost anything for a chance to see his loved ones.
Then the lieutenant explained what my task would be. I would interview prisoners who claimed to have an invention or a new technical idea, and, once I had the details of the project, I would have to outline and evaluate it from an engineering point of view. I tried to explain that no engineer's training is broad enough to familiarize him with every aspect of his field; I would need books, and a chance to consult prisoners who worked in the Engineering Section. I also explained how risky it would be to give opinions on new inventions, which accounts for the special offices that exist everywhere for this purpose. And as far as my fellow-prisoners were concerned, I suggested that they be granted rights and rewards for their ingenuity, similar to those earned by free men. "You are crazy." He stared at me. "What rights and rewards are you talking about?" he inquired laughingly. "Well, they'd get money for their ideas, and the patent rights belong to them," I explained, patiently. Once again he roared with laughter. "You sure have been in prison a long time. Those days are gone for good. Now, new inventions are offered to the state. Of course, some financial reward is given, but that's something we can discuss later, when inventions are reported to us."
There was a new cellmate waiting for me when I returned. I had known him well before our imprisonment.* He explained that he had been assigned to work on the same project, and that he was in charge of the administrative aspect. I used to like him, but now I was afraid of him. He had been convicted of spying for the Americans, and, according to rumors, had
managed to escape hanging only by becoming a stool pigeon.
* He was a representative of the Smallholders Party and well known for his strong anti-Communist feelings. He was also very active in city politics.
