Attica inmates Those paranoid parents
ATTICA, N.Y. (-.A state of emergency was declared at
Atttica state prison yesterday by the prison superintendent
when 800 inmates refused to leave their cells in a two-day
The protest began Monday morning over the laying off
of a temporary nurse at the prison. Although the nurse
was reinstated, the inmates still refused to leave their cells.
A state of emergency means that visiting privileges are
cancelled and that movement within the prison is restricted.
After issuing the declaration Supt. Ernest Montanye
met with the inmate liason committee-a group of inmates
organized with correction department approval after last
September's Attica prison riot to provide a communications
link between inmates and

the parents little free time if
they attend all planned sessions.
