WASHINGTON - President Carter's
special envoy, Ramsey Clark, is
holding talks with the Palestine
Liberation Organization in an effort to
win the freedom of 60 American
hostages in Iran, but a Tehran radio
broadcast indicated PLO mediation
would not be accepted.
State Department officials confirmed
yesterday that Clark had been in con-
tact with the PLO, which some U.S. of-
ficials had seen as the best hope of
negotiating with the Iranians holding
the American hostages.
AP Photq "HE HAS BEEN told by us to hold
exchange whatever conversations he believes are
necessary to facilitate the rapid and
safe release of our embassy people,"
State Department spokesman Hodding

But Tehran radio, in a broadcase
monitored in Kuwait, said the students
holding the embassy have rejected
talks with the PLO. The broadcast said
the students "apologized to the PLO
delegation. . . for being unable to ac-
educate cept PLO Mediation aimed at freeing
the American hostages." ,

provide WHITE HOUSE press secretary Jody

Powell told reporters that Carter
wished to remain in close contact with
his foreign policy advisers.
"The president postponed his trip to
Canada to remain at the White House
and continue to closely monitor events
in Iran," Powell said.
Powell said the postponement is "not
based on any new developments" in
Tehran. He said it would be a "serious
mistake" to interpret the postponement
as a signal that the situation has
changed.

LSA junior Stacy Stephanopoulos, fed
up with the "well-meaning inaction" of
Second Ward Democratic Council
member Earl Greene, announced
yesterday she will challenge the in-
cumbent for his Second Ward Council
seat in the citywide primary in
February.
Speaking at a press conference in the
cramped Democratic Party office on
City Hall's first floor, Stephanopoulos
said her candidacy "was basically
provoked by the high amount of apathy
evident in Second Ward voters."
GREENE, A four-year veteran of
Council, did not face primary op-
position when he ran for the seat in 1975.
Greene has said he intends to run in tihe

February primary but that he still must
develop a platform and set up an of-
ficial campaign committee before
making a formal announcement.
Stephanopoulos worked for Democrat
Jamie Kenworthy in his unsuccessful
campaign for mayor last April and.
Greene's bid. for a Second
Congressional District seat-in Novem-
ber of 1978, which he lost.
Stephanopoulos said she did not think
Greene was a "viable force" in the
community.
"I WORKED ON Kenworthy's cam-
paign in April and I saw the apathy,"
she explained. "You have to give the
voters something to respond to and get
students interested in politics again."
Stephanopoulos pinned apathy on the

Democratic party's failure to
voters.

Group to revamp Mich. Theatre

By CAROL KOLETSKY
Over the past year there were many who fought to keep
the doors of the 51-year-old Michigan Theatre open and many
who struggled to preserve the beauty of its traditional ar-
chitecture. The historic theater received a new lease on life
Monday night when the Ann Arbor City Council agreed to a
'plan to finance the theater's purchase.
The Michigan Community Theater Corporation, which
now is leasing the theater from the city, plans to revamp the
theater to make it appear and operate as it once did. "Our
goal is to put it back the way it was," said Henry Aldridge,
corporation board director. "Every year we can have a big
benefit. One year we'll recarpet it, the next we'll paint the
lobby in its original colors.".
RENOVATION, to be completed over several years, is
estimated at over $3 million. Mayor Louis Belcher is certain

that there will be enough funds for the theater to function, but
he is less optinistic that box office recipts will cover all the
plans for renovation.
The non-profit corporation plans to use the theater on
Liberty St. for "revival cinema" as opposed to first-run
shows. "We want to use it for what it was built for," said
theater staff member John Briggs. "We want to revive things
like the good old musicals of previous eras for the purpose of
fundraising, and especially because the theater was here
when those films were made," he added.
THROUGHOUT, ITS half !century of existence, the
theater's function and physical design has been subject to
continual change. It was built in 1928 by architect Angelos
Poulas as a "presentation house." Ad elaborate vaudeville
palace, it boasts ornate decor, a complete stage, dressing
rooms, a green room, projection facilities, and a pipe organ.

voters with a student candidate for the
Council seat.
Stephanopoulos and the other
Democratic Party workers who joined
the group have recently been involved
in a voter registration drive. Group
members have been registering voters
at all University dorms and in the Fish-
bowl.
STUDENTS FOR a Progressive
Government are conducting a non-
scientific survey of voter attitudes to
find out what issues interest students.
This has provided Stacy with an in-
dication of major-fssues on which to
base her platform.
"The issues most often addressed are
housing, parking, transportation, and
better police protection in the campus
area," the candidate said. For exam-
ple, she explained, "We find in the area
of housing the fact that student.
households are included in the numbers
when the city determines how many
households are in need of federal
assistance, yet no federal assistance
programs are available for these
student households." The candidate
added that she will distribute weekly
position papers dealing with the issues.

Experts debate plan

WASHINGTON-California Gov.
Edmund Brown Jr. formally began hs
quest for the Democratic presidential
nomination yesterday, declaring him-
self he only political leader capable of
awk ening the United States-"the
sleeping giant"-from its malaise.
"The sense is pervasive that
something is wrong, that our nation is
divided when it should be decisive and
acting with clear purpose," Brown said
in his announcement of candidacy.
"I SEE THE problem not so much as
the deficiency of one personality, but
rather the collective failure to grasp the
new age into which we are entering,"
he said.
Senator Edward Kennedy is the first
Democrat this century to challenge an
incumbent Democratic President, and
yesterday California Gov. Jerry Brown
became the second.
The 41-year-old governor was a late
entry into the 1976 presidential race,
winning five of six primaries in which
his name was on the ballot. This time he

is early but Kennedy's presence is sure
to cut into his youthful and liberal sup-
port.
ANNOUNCING HIS candidacy for
the Democratic nomination, Brown
said neither President Carter nor Ken-
nedy has the talent to stir the country
from a national malaise.
"I think the people are ready if the
right leadership wakes them up," he
said.
"I see neither the president nor the
senator from Massachusetts as
adequate spokesmen for the future,"
Brown said in his announcement
ceremonies in the grand ballroom of the
National Press Club.
AFTER HIS appearance in
Washington, Brown took his campaign
to Boston for a rally with 1,500 suppor-
ters in Quincy Market, just 100 yards
from Faneuil Hall where Kennedy had
announced his candidacy 24 hours
earlier.
At that rally, Brown won his greatest
applause for restating his opposition to
