Inmates study mI'BNC

Havord Grey did not fit into the mold of the
average student enrolled at the University last
First of all, he was 45 years old. He finished his.
high school education on the GI bill in 1961 when
most of us had not even entered grammar school.
He never had an Orientation Counselor and he ,
did not go to home football games on the week
end. Grey was an inmate at the nearby Orange
County Prison. "
He took four three-hour courses and worked
two days a week at the Administrative Data Pro
cessing Department as a study-release student. :
Grey studied through "Outreach to Inmates"
program which allows convicted criminals to take
correspondence courses through the UNC system.
"Outreach," funded primarily by N.C. foun-.
dations, pays for the inmates' enrollment fees,
books and study materials. Each year as many as,
120 prisoners can enroll in the program.
" We're looking for the good students who
have the real future to contribute something to
society," said program director Brick Oettinger
of the UNC Division of Extension.
The inmates must have a high school diploma
or the equivalent to be considered for the
program. "We're not aimed at everyone; only 14
percent of the inmates arc eligible," Oettinger
The ineligible prisoners are offered other edu
cational programs through community colleges
and high schools and can work toward the equiv
alent of a high school diploma, Oettinger said.
Describing himself a'; "somewhat of a book
worm," Grey said he enjoyed studying. "The
school has made the years (in prison) count for
"I believe if a mart commits a crime he should
pay for it. I also believe he should be given the
opportunity to improve himself," he said.
Grey entered the state's prison system at
Raleigh's Central Prison in September 1976 as a

convicted feion. In early 1977, he was transferred
to the unit in Yadkinville where he studied
through an educational co-op program at a local
school. The co-op officials told him about 'Out
reach' and urged him to apply.
Because he already had his high school diploma
and had attended Campbell College, Grey had no
problem being accepted and began studying
through the 'Outreach' program. By May 1978 he
had received minimum-security status and an
honor grade that was required for admission to
the 'Econo College' program. That program is an
on-site instruction program offered at the Orange
County Prison in Hillsborough, where he was -later
In the spring semester of 1979, Grey gained
"xdrnissica - tpUNC through - thr evenins'iegei,
and began taking courses on campus. ?
He was on campus from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each
.weekday. During that time he had to be in class,
at work, in the Union or in the library.
When he went back to the prison, he was not
allowed any special privileges because he was a
student. "When I have a break, 1 go back to
camp; I can't go to Fort Lauderdale or to Ver
Each night at 9 Grey had to be in his dorm. He
described the study conditions there as "almost
impossible." Usually he had only 1 Vi hours a day
plus spare weekend time to study, he said.
Before tests, Grey said he got permission to
study in the library during class hours. Some
times, the guards let him study in a lighted shower
stall after hours' at the prisdn.
Grey said the extra effort was proof that an
inmate wanted to improve. "The people who
come to school are willing to work, so they will be
willing to work when they get out."
Since it began in 1973, the 'Outreach to In
mates' program has been successful. Oettinger
said the completion, rate of inmates enrolled in
correspondence courses was better than 50 per
cent. The completion rate for non-inmate cor-

Despite an announced agreement on their
release, 52 American hostages remained in Iran
early today and Iran's chief negotiator said his
government would set a deadline for U.S.
banks to transfer frozen Iranian assets to the
Bank of England. .
"If this is not done, harsher decisions will
definitely be made,' Executive Affairs
Minister Behzad Nabavi said in a recorded
interview broadcast by Tehran Radio early
The White House said early today that
' negotiations were continuing. Nabavi said he
had asked the Algerian delegation in Tehran
for a meeting and would relay the deadline to
The broadcast gave no indication of the
deadline. But White House press secretary
Jody Powell warned Iran that the incoming
Reagan administration would be bound by the
hostage agreement only if the captive
Americans were released before Ronald
Reagan took office at noon;
Iran's official Pars news agency quoted
Nabavi Monday as saying U.S. banks
submitted an 11 -page appendix on future
Iranian financial claims "to make it binding on
Iran to drop any further claims beyond the
approximately $8 billion which are to be
escrowed" in the British central bank.
"Even with the utmost optimism, this could
only be viewed as an underhanded maneuver
for delaying the final solution of 'the problem,
especially after the U.S. president had issued
an order for releasing Iran's assets in the U.S.
banks," Nabavi said. He blamed the U.S.
banks "for needlessly dragging out the issue."
A White House official and two U.S.
bankers said they did not know what Iran was
talking about. In New York, Citibank
spokesman John J. Maloney said the 11 -page
appendix "was part of the agreement that Iran,
Algeria and the United States signed early.
, "The banks were not party to it and had no
part in its drafting," Maloney said. "It is an
agreement among the governments, and we
believe the administration will clarify that it is
in no way intended to force Iran to drop any
One Iranian official in Tehran said the
problem was minor and the hostages could be
released "any moment," ending their
1 4 Vi -month ordeal.
Hostages remain in Iran
Tehran airport officials said early Tuesday
that the hostages would remain in Iran at least
until late in the morning. "They will leave
probably about 10 o'clock," said one official,
reached by telephone from New York. That
would be 1:30 a.m. today EST. He said the
crews of two Algerian Boeing 727s had
returned to their hotels for the night and the
hostages were not at the airport.
A group of Algerian doctors and nurses had
examined the captives and one doctor, reached
at his Tehran hotel early today, said, "All the
hostages are in good health." He refused to
say where the doctors had examined the
Early Monday, Iran released silent film to

the hostages being examined by the doctors.

There was no indication from the film whether
the captives were aware that an agreement on
their release had been reached.
According to Pars, Nabavi said that under
terms of the agreement, the American banks
had. to transfer Iran's assets to the Bank of
England before the hostages could be released.
But by midnight Tehran time (3:30 p.m.
EST) "no news had been received of this
transfer," Nabavi said. '
A spokesman at the office of Iranian Central
Bank director Ali Reza Nobari said a meeting
of Central Bank officials had been under way
several hours,. well past midnight.
In Washington, a U.S. official said that Iran
had not completed arrangements with the
Another U.S. official said earlier that a
controversy had arisen over Iranian demands
for assurance that if any of its frozen assets
turned up in the future they would be
delivered, with interest, to Iran. "It is not "
insurmountable, but the whole package is not
in place," the State Department official said.
He made the statement before Nabavi issued
The delays forced President Jimmy Carter to
abandon a plan to fly to West Germany to
greet the hostages in the final hours of his
presidency. Reagan asked Carter to serve as his
special envoy and receive the hostages there
after the inauguration.
There were conflicting reports throughout
the day on the movement of the hostages and
the airport was closed to reporters. '
State Department spokesman John Trattner
said he had no confirmation the hostages, were
at the airport and it was uncertain when Iran
would free the Americans held captive for 444
Reagan was asked Monday evening if he
would honor the agreement should the
hostages still be held after his inauguration. He
said, "I'm not going to make any comment on
this situation at this point that might in any
way have any influence on anyone."
Secretary of. State Edmund S. Muskie said
negotiations were continuing on "the last
document ... it has to do with the transfer of
assets. My impression is that it's manageable
... I expect we will resolve it."
Asked if Carter may have been too optimis
tic in announcing the agreement, Muskie said,
"The basic agreement is still sound; it's still the
basis for the resolution of the problem."
In answer to a question about whether the
last-minute dispute could torpedo the
settlement, Muskie said, "When you use the
word "possible," I can imagine any horror
Jack Watson, Carter's chief of staff, said
today that after the 50 men and two women
held since Nov. 4, 1979, have been freed, a
hostage compensation commission would be
created by executive order to decide whether
"there should be some form of compensation"
for the hostages and their families.
The nine-member commision would have
four members appointed by Carter and five by
Reagan, Watson said in an interview on the
Public Broadcasting System.

about whether the hostages could sue - and
win claims against Iran.
"I can't tell you if it is deliberate," Carter's
spokesman said of the delay. "It was hard to
tell what was deliberate and what was not with
them all along."
Carter announced before sunrise Monday
that the United States and Iran had reached
agreement "which will result, I believe, in the
freedom of our American hostages."
He did not say when, and hours later it re
mained unclear whether they would reach
freedom under President Carter or President
Powell said he had no way of knowing when
the matter could be settled. While he said
nothing had arisen that was not anticipated, he
acknowledged the differences could become a
serious . prob!csj;iT suppose any. 'differences
could, under certain circumstances, lead
almost anywhere," he said.
Carter's spokesman said the hostage deal
involved two sets of documents, enc to outline
the agreement the president announced and a
second to implement it and get the hostages
freed. He said the second set, "enormously
complicated and enormously technical,"
remained under discussion.
"All of us are encouraged but still have our
fingers crossed," Reagan said. "I think there
will be a concern that all of us will feel until we
know they're airborne, actually on their way,
in view of the history of this whole thing."
Reagan said he concurred In the hostage
release settlement, "unless there's something
we haven't seen yet." He said he didn't think
there was. Carter had kept him informed on
the hectic negotiations for freedom.
The problems seemed typical of a crisis that
wore on for more than 14 months, with a
roadblock for every solution Carter attempted.

Department spokesman John Trattner said.
