TEHRAN, Iran (AP)-Snipers firing

law commander yesterday, officials
said. Tehran newspapers reported at

patrol of Jahrom, 360 miles south of
Tehran, when they were shot by uniden-
tified persons. Navar was hospitalized
after the shooting in Jahrom, one of a
dozen cities placed under martial law
Sept. 7.
IN THE CITY of Qum, a Moslem
religious center 100 miles south of
Tehran, police used tear gas and then
fired their guns into the crowd to
disperse thousands of rioting demon-
strators. Two persons were reported
killed and many injured.
The Tehran newspapers Ettelaat and
the towns of Khorramahad and

campus of Tehran University.

A SEA OF SIGNS:leaves no doubt as to these students' position, on the drinking age proposal. They gathered yesterday in
front of the State Capitol for a demonstration.

cent of educated people in the United
States. Let our voices be heard to
educate the masses. If students are
apathetic, they will deserve their fate,"
said Stroud.
Most of the speakers indicated the.
majority of 18 to 2-year-olds are just as
capable as older adults to handle liquor.
"THERE IS NO law that says the 40-
or '50-year-old problem drinker can't
drink," said Detroit 'resident Paul
Zimmerman.r
Although he admitted the turnout was
lower than he had expected, MICAR
chairperson State Senator Jackie
Vaughn (D-Detroit) said he was "very
pleased" with those who did battle the
dayalong drizzle and blamed the small
showing on class requirements and
transportation difficulties.
But Richard Zylman, Research
Professor at the Rutgers University
'Center for Alcohol Studies attributed
the small turnout to student apathy.
"SO' FEW STUDENTS had the time
to come over here and fight for their
rights. It suggests that young people
are not so alcohol-orgy prone as many
think," said Zylman.

"The backers of the drinking age
proposal have the idea youth are
inherently bad, alcohol is evil and the
combination of the two would lead to
disaster," he said.
The professor added that recent
studies show that "youth who drink and
drive are alienated and hostile."
HE SAID the proposal would "run the
risk of criminalizing what is ordinary
adult behavior."
Although a recent poll shows a -1

margin of public support for the
proposal, Chris Magnus, chairperson of
the student group Three O'Clock Lobby
said he was not conceding defeat.
"A lot of people seem resigned to the
fact that this proposal is going to pass
November 7, but I'm not because the
tide is turning," said Magnus.
Strand, however, was not so op-
timistic. He said he is already planning
to initiate a counter proposal to be
placed on next year's state ballot.

country for quite some time," said
Olivia Birdsall, the research associate
for CESF, "and the faculty will con-
tinue to push for this increase."
Many administrators had not
examined the Carter administration's
wage and price guidelines and were not
aware of the actions which the federal
government might take to support its
program.
"I don't really know anything about
it," said Robert Suave, assistant to the
vice-president on matters concerning
the budget. "We are interested in what

happens, but we know no more than
what's been in the newspapers."
Shapiro, who is also a professor of
economics, said that, in general, he was
skeptical of the effectiveness of Car-
ter's program. "Washington has con-
tacted me recently on some economic
questions and I am somewhat familiar
with these kinds of programs," he
remarked, "but wage and price con-
trols have not worked in the past, and I
am not sure that they will work now."

'U' doctors warn X-ray patients
o possible skin cancer threat

ANN ARBOR (UPI) - Physicians at
the.University warned Wednesday that
people who underwent certain X-ray
treatments 20 to 40 years ago should
start watchirg for signs of skin cancer.
The warning came as the federal
government opened hearings on the
potential harm and high costof ex-
cessive X-ray usage.
"X-RAY TREATMENTS for , a
variety of ailments was an accepted
practice until 20 years ago," said Dr.
William Grabb, head of plastic surgery
service at University Hospital.
He said his department has noticed
that X-ray-induced cancer rarely
spreads beyond the area treated, such
as the face in acne cases. Radiation was
a popular form of skin blemish treat-

ment until the late 1950s.
"Not all people who had the treat-
ments will get skin cancer," he said.
"There are, however, several warning
signs to watch for: a thickened area of
the skin which is enlarged, an ulcerated
area that doesn't heal or an area that
bleeds repeatedly."
AT HEALTH, Education and Welfare
(HEW) Department hearings in
Washington, a Harvard radiologist
warned against any hasty public con-
demnation of diagnostic X-rays despite
their high cost and cancer-causing
potential.
Dr. Herbert Abrams of Boston con-
ceded that changes in X-ray practices
should be made, but added, "I want to
express reservation about any

premature bulletin by the federal
government regarding cutting back on
X-rays."
Abrams, chairman of the department
of radiology at Harvard Medical
School, spoke to an HEW conference on
the $6.3 billion annual business of X-
rays and the need for more care in
prescribing them. Representative Paul
Rogers (D-Fla.) told the meeting that
many doctors order X-rays as protec-
tion against malpractice suits.
"We have looked at the effects of
radiation on human health," he said.
"The findings, I would say, are not too
comfortable. There is evidence that ex-
posure to low-level X-rays increases the
person's risk of cancer and genetic
damage."
