Goodbye, Mr. Chips
It looks like professors at the University of Minnesota have no
problem with grade inflation. Students there decided to turn the
tables, giving out "report cards" to their teachers - and 20 per cent
flunked. Another 20 per cent received D's, 29 per cent got C's, 24 per
cent B's. Only seven per cent were rated "A" teachers. Four were
judged perfect by their students. The grading process has sparked
controversy, but not just among the professors. The University of
Minnesota Board of Regents wouldn't sanction publication of the
findings and independent publication supported by advertising was
impossible without the regents' approval. The full survey was finally
published yesterday as a supplement by the Twim Cities Reader, a
free weekly newspaper. It seems that our own University is the one to
blame for all of the headaches - the questionnaire used in the
project was developed here.

Teed off
Pulled over for doing 50 in a 35 m.p.h. zone. Doesn't sound too
unusual, except when the ticket is issued to the driver of a souped-up
golf cart. It seems that sheriff's deputies in the retirement community
of Sun City, Arizona are keeping a sharp lookout for some of that
town's golden agers after hearing reports that local mechanics are
willing to power up the golf carts. Golf carts are licensed only for
travel up to 15 m.p.h., but many residents are using them for running
errands around town. This must be the latest in "fore-wheel" drive.
Panda-monious pregnancy
America has been waiting for several years for some offspring from
its two giant pandas, and it finally looks as if Hsing-Hsing and Ling-
Ling may have a little Thing-Thing of their own. Though National Zoo
Director Theodore Reed isn't sure Ling-Ling is expecting, he said the
fact that she recently built a nest inside her cage could be an indication
that something is on the way. "It could be a false pregnancy, or more
likely it is just the female's normal fall hormonal changes. But it could
be the real thing too," Reed said. The pandas, given to the U.S. by
China following President Nixon's visit there, declined comment on
the issue.
On the outside .. .
Today will be partly cloudy, partly sunny, and entirely miserable
as this hot, humid weather continues. Expect a high around 88.

Iran army halts demonstrations

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Army gunfire
sliced through a crowd of several
thousand anti-government
demonstrators yesterday, killing
scores, after the government imposed
martial law to crush the growing civil
revolt.
Tehran's military governor said 58
persons were killed and 205 injured in
the bloody clash in the shadow of the
Iranian Parliament. Unofficial reports
said as many as 100 died when troops
fired submachine guns into the air to
disperse the throng, then dropped their
gunsights into the oncoming crowd.
. THERE WAS NO comment on
unofficial reports that as many as 1,000
persons were arrested in the first day of
martial law.
The clash came as Shah Mohammed
Reza Pahlavi attempted to cap a
growing revolt against , his
authoritarian government, after failing
to pacify the rebels by shuffling his
government and sanctioning free
expression.
Hardcore Moslem religious leaders
are spearheading a nine-month-old
drive to force the Shah to recant a
series of social reforms aimed at
loosening the clergy's traditionally-
firm grip on this Moslem nation.
A WIDE spectrum of government
opponents - including an underground
terror group labeled "Islamic
Marxists" by the shah - has cast its lot
with the conservative religious leaders,
who demand a return to government by
Islamic law.

Large scale clashes with authorities,
which began in January, reportedly
have claimed more than 1,000 lives.
The mullas, or priests, of the Moslem
Shiite sect, Iran's largest religious
group, see a breakdown in the religious
tenets in the liberalization begun by the
shah last year, and they are also
chafing at the growing Western
influence in Iranian society.
THE PRIESTS, who once exerted
almost feudal power over that society,
were rankled by the shah's decision to
give land owned by the clergy to
peasant farmers and to give women the
vote, allow them to disregard their veils
and seek university degrees. Women
traditionally hold virtual second-class
citizenship in most orthodox Moslem
nations.
Seeking to mollify his religious and
political opponents, the shah named a
devout Moslem, Jaafer Sharif-Enami
as premier on Aug. 23. The new regime
quickly announced that all legal
political parties would be allowed to
participate in government.
Despite these moves, 100,000 people
defied a government ban of rallies and
massed in Tehran Thursday to demand
the shah's resignation and the return of.
exiled religious leader Ayatullah
Khomaini, who broke with the shah in
1963 and has been directing the anti-
shah campaign from his headquarters
in Iraq.
AFTER AN all-night cabinet
meeting, the government issued its
martial law decree, clamping a curfew

from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily on Tehran
and 11 other cities and banning
gatherings by more than two persons.
Several thousand angry protesters
took to the streets again Friday, and
shouted down a religious leader who
appealed to them to disperse.
Led by teenagers and followed by
women in veils, the crowd marched on
a wall of soldiers at Jaleb Square, in the
eastern section of the city, and began
hurling bricks and rocks.
POLICE SAID they used tear gas "as
far as possible" to break up the crowd,

but witnesses said "many" blood-
soaked demonstrators fell to the ground
as soldiers opened fire.
The shooting set ' off a two-hour
rampage.
"As they fled from the scene, the
demonstrators burnt down anything
that was flammable," said one witness.
Several department stores and
gasoline stations went up in flames, and
at least one store was still burning
several hours after the melee and
sporadic gunfire continued as the city
prepared for its first night under
curfew.

Senator Kennedy to
meet with Brezhnev

MOSCOW (UPI) - Sen. Edward
Kennedy said yesterday he would meet
with Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev
today to discuss "some of the factors"
that have led to a decline in relations
between the superpowers.
Kennedy spoke with reporters outside
the U.S. Embassy snackbar, where he
addressed embassy employees. He flew
to Moscow from a World Health
Organization conference in Alma-Ata,
in Soviet Central Asia.
HE WILL SEE Brezhnev at 11:30
a.m. (4:30 a.m. EDT) today.
Kennedy was questioned about the
mood of the U.S. Senate and whether
the upper house would ratify any
strategic arms limitation agreement it
receives in the near future.
"It's a tough mood at the present
time but we'll just have to wait and see
what steps are taken to improve it," he
said.
