Ford Criticizes
`Iran Connection'

Gerald Ford blasts the Reagan Administration for
exchanging military material for hostages

HEIDI PRESS

Local News Editor

Former President Gerald R.
Ford on Sunday called on the U.S. to
halt arms shipments to Iran in pay-
ment for its help in the release of
American hostages in Lebanon.
Speaking to a record-breaking
audience of 2,000 guests at the 72nd
anniversary dinner for the Beth
Yehudah Schools, the former
President said "arms to (Iranian

leader Ayatollah) Khomeini must
stop. The U.S. arms transfer to Iran
is contradictory. We pressure our al-
lies to join us against terrorism, but
deliver arms to Iran which is deeply
involved in acts of terrorism itself."
The former President called for.
White House officials involved in the
decision to ship arms to "step for-
ward and resign. President Reagan
will not be well served by those who
executed the arms deal with Iran,"

Rulings Ruffle
Cities' Christmas

Israelis congratulate new Hebron Mayor Abdel Majid a-Zir.

King. Hussein is hoping
not to crush the PLO
completely but to
bend it to his will

The church which donated Bir-
mingham's first Christmas nativity
scene more than 30 years ago will
display the creche this year. The ci-
ty's decision not to erect the display
on public property resulted from the
U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision
not to review a 1984 district court
ruling that the creche's placement
violated the constitutional separa-
tion of religion and state.

The high court's ruling promp-
ted Detroit and its suburbs to either
cancel Christmas display plans or
try to circumvent the ruling by
crowding their creches with "non-
religious" holiday symbols.
Dearborn's creche will be dis-
played on former city property, now
owned by the chamber of commerce.
Detroit's display will appear in front
of Mariner's Church across from the
City-County Building. Ferndale has
cancelled its display altogether.
