Wednesday, Grassi, who speaks only a few words of English, was led from his death row cell to a meeting with Warden Bob Rhay. "Explain to him," Rhay told an interpreter, "that he will get a pardon from the governor after .17 three stipulations are met." Tears welled in Grassi's eyes and a smile spread over his lined face as he heard Rhay's words translated. He was told Gov. Albert D. Rosellini had commuted his death sen tence to life imprisonment and had left the door wide open for a par don. The governor* said if psychiatrists find Grassi safe to be at large, then a request for a pardon may be granted on condition Gras si remain in custody until he leaves this country, returns to Italy at no expense to the state and never again enters the United States, its territories or possessions.
