'Anti-Shah WINTER COMMENCEMENT:

workers

slo wdown
(Continued from Page 1)
"The shah is the enemy of the people
and of Islam," he said. "We will kill all
Vho support him."
Sources, who asked not to be iden-
tified, said the new slowdown by many
of the 37,000-man work force in Iran's
southwestern Khuzestan oil fields im-
mediately cut Iran's daily oil produc-
tion by two million barrels, one-third of
the normal level, according to the
Associated Press.
The United Press, however, reported
that the oil production, according to
diplomats, fell from 5.9 million barrels
a day to 4.6 million as the strike took
hold yesterday, or 1.3 million daily.
"WE EXPECT the slowdowns to get
worse tomorrow (today) and produc-
tion to drop even further," one well-
placed source said.
Sources in the oil fields said the
refinery at Abadan on the Persian Gulf
was not affected by the slowdown Mon-
day but probably would be today, along
with at least two fo four offshore fields
in the gulf.
Iran, the world's No. 2 petroleum ex-
porter, depends heavily on its oil
revenues. A 15-day strike by oil-
industry workers last month cut the
flow of oil to a trickleand cost the
,national treasury more than $1 billion
in lost revenue.
THE STATE-RUN National Iranian
Oil Co. was just beginning to restore
normal production when hit by yester-
"day's job actions, obviously aimed at
dealing a decisive blow to the economic
undrpinning of the beleaguered
.monarchy.
It was expected that the military-led
'government night react as it did
during the earlier strike- ordering the
army into the fields again to force
workers to restore normal output and
risking a possible confrontation.
Leaders of the opposition, par-
"ticularly the Paris-based Ayatullah
Khomaini exiled head of Iran's
dominant Shiite Moslem sect, had
called for stepped-up street protests
and a general strike beginning over the
weekend, start of the Moslem holy mon-
.th of mourning called Moharram.
THE SHAH'S foes said this emotional
period for orthodox Moslems, com-
memorating the seventh-century mar-
tyrdom of one of the founders of the
Shiite. sect, would be the time for a
,showdown with the monarch's military-
led government.
The French Foreign Ministry yester-
day officially warned Khomaini for the
third time to stop preaching violent
revolution from French soil.
Khomaini's call for a general strike
seemed little heeded yesterday. Banks
and some shops that closed Saturday
-reopened.

* GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -
Drug agents said yesterday they

j fprrested five persons after they found
$28 million worth of cocaine in a ship-
ment of furniture from Peru to Grand
f Rapids.
Four chairs and a coffee table,
.described as intricately carved
mahogany and insured for $19,000, had
allegedly been hollowed out to make
room for 17 and one half pounds of what
agents said was pure cocaine.
Federal agents in Florida became
suspicious of the shipment, and one law
enforcement official posed as a
delivery man when the furniture
reached Grand Rapids, authorities
said. The arrests were made Saturday.

British historian to sneak

BY SUE HOLMAN
A well-known British historian and
statesman, Roy Jenkins, will deliver
the keynote address at the University's
winter commencement, Sunday, Dec.
17.
Jenkins, president of the Commission
of the European Communities and a
former deputy leader of the British
Labor Party, will receive an honorary
doctor of laws degree, along with for-
mer University economist Kenneth
Boulding and Samuel Ting, a former
University student and Nobel laureate
in physics, who will be given an
honorary doctor of science degree.
IN ADDITION to his current leader-
ship in the Commission and his time
near the top of the Labor Party for two
years starting in 1970, Jenkins' record
includes: Chancellor of the Exchequer
(Treasury) in 1967-70, Secretary of.
State for the Home Department, 1965-
67, and Minister of Aviation, 1964-65.
In 1945, Jenkins lost in the general

election for Parliament, but in 1948, at
27, he became the youngest member of
the House of Commons after winning a
bi-election at Southwark.
Jenkins is a well-known biographer,
having written many books on the
Labor Party. He also advocated British
entrytinto the European Common
Market.
KENNETH BOULDING taught at the
University for 18 years, 1949-67. He is
former president of the American
Economic Association and was named
this year as president-elect of the
American Association for the Advan-
cement of Science.
Boulding has been teaching at the
University of Colorado since 1968 and is
a program director at the Institute of
Behavioral Science in Boulder.
Ting received his undergraduate,
master's and, doctoral degrees from
the University. Raised in China, Ting
conducted research in Europe and the
United States and also taught at
Columbia University.

Jenkins
Ting has been a physics professor at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
for the last nine years.
Commencement ceremonies will
begin at 1:45 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
Approximately 2,200 students are ex-
pected to receive their degrees.

CLEAR UP YUUR FUTURE IN THE 2-YEAR AFRUTC PRUGRAM.
What's up after college? That question is enough to
,get a lot of young people down.
Air Force ROTC college graduates have that worry,
too. But their immediate future (and longer if they choose)
is much more secure. As a commissioned officer, there's a
good job. . ..Travel. Graduate level education. Promotions.
Financial security. And really, lots more.
If you have two academic years remaining, there's a
great 2-year AFROTC program still available to you. Look
into the details. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
And pleasantly rewarded.
