(AP) Among the throngs of welldressed Georgians at Gov. LesMaddox's first open house Sunday were four shabbily dressed Negroes escaped prisoners with a story to tell the governor.

The four said they sawed through bars at a Wilkinson County public works camp at midnight Saturday and walked all night to complain personally to the governor about prison treatment. They told Maddox of threats on their lives, of being put in solitary confinement for complaining, and of going six to eight days with only one meal. Clad in faded sport shirts and ill-fitting overalls, with prison garb underneath, the Negroes waited in a line of more than 4,000 Georgians gathered to greet the governor at the mansion. The prisoners' first pleas were unheeded. Maddox, busily shaking hands and chatting with visitors, missed the rapidly mumbled plea of Mrs.

Albert Hill, mother of one of the prisoners. "They're prisoners, they walked all night," Mrs. Hill said. But the governor already had turned to greet other guests. Mrs.

Maddox, however, thought she had heard the word "prisoner" and asked a nearby state patrolman to check. He did and called the governor. After talking about 20 minutes with the men, Maddox said he has ordered the "most thorough investigation ever conducted by the Department of Corrections." "These men told me they had planned to escape because of cruel treatment, of going six to eight days with only one meal," the governor said at a news conference. "They had planned two weeks ago to escape. They wanted to surrender They sawed through bars and walked away.

I'm convinced there's. considerable truth to this. "These men said they had tried everything else. They had even been put in a hole for complaining. I'm glad they did come," Maddox said.

"We wanted to get better conditions," said Booker T. Gary, 20, of Macon, serving a six-year sentence for robbery. He said his life had been threatened by guards at the work camp. "If you don't work as good as they think you should, well, they do it," he said, of the threats. The other three prisoners are MacArthur Davis, 26, of Macon, a sentence for armed robbery; Douglas May, 24, of Twiggs County, burglary; and Henry Lewis Jackson, 22, of Macon, assault and battery.
