U.S. support for
Shah reaffirmed on
eve of protests

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Tanks rum-
bled back into Tehran's streets yester-
day on the eve of a mass anti-shah mar-
ch that organizers claim will "deter-
mine the future of Iran." At least 20
protesters were reported killed in the
latest violence in provincial cities.
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance,
speaking in London yesterday, reaffir-
med American support for Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi but ruled out
direct U.S. intervention on behalf of the
beleaguered monarch.
AT TEHRAN'S airport, U.S. Air For-
ce transport planes were reported
ferrying in riot-control equipment, in-
cluding water cannons, after which
they airlifted out dependents of some
850 American servicemen based in
defense Department officials said in
Washington the Pentagon had ordered
five C-141 transport planes to help
speed the departure of U.S. Military
and civilian dependents.
Military sources described the
buildup of tanks and heavily armed
troops at army bases in the city as "a
precautionary measure." There were
fears that extremists would try to
provoke a bloody confrontation with the
army today.
ANXIOUS TO avoid rioting, the
military-led government on F" riday
eased a martial-law ban on processions
to permit the march to mark the prin-
cipal holy period of Moharram, the
Moslem month of mourning.
The procession will take place during
the 48-hour period of Ashura,
traditionally marked by self-
administered beatings with the flat
edge of a sword to mourn the murder in

To University business economist
Ross Wilhelm, the much-discussed
world energy crisis might better be
termed a non-crisis.
According to Wilhelm, the reason for
the non-crisis is OPEC's success-
ful quadrupling of the price of crude
oil back in 1973. The higher price of
crude, currently about $13 a barrel,
"provides an enormous incentive for
people to go out and look for oil," he
AS A RESULT of this incentive,
Wilhelm contends, "the world will be
facing a surplus of energy, and the
monopoly of oil producing nations will
be on the verge of collapse, or will have
collapsed by the 198's."
The School of Business Ad-
ministration professor noted the OPEC
countries are in a double bind.
Whenever new oil supplies from non-
OPEC countries come onto the world
market, the OPEC countries must
reduce their output to keep theyorld oil
price up.
However, he noted, nations such as
Libya, Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Iran

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Powered by
religious fervor and long-repressed
political discontent, the winds of

replacing abundance with shortages
and reducing Tehran's flashy neon
night life to drab nothingness.
Eleven months of political upheaval

THE LAND OF plenty has become
the land of shortages and long lines.
