orders check
on Iranian
student visas
By The Associated Press
A petition said to have been signed by
half of the American hostages in the
U.S. Embassy in. Tehran appealed to
the Carter administration yesterday to
"release" the shah in exchange for
their freedom. Presidential spokesman
Jody Powell dismissed it as having
"absolutely no validity."
- President Carter ordered the Justice
Department to deport all Iranians in
the United States on student visas who
are not complying with the visa
requirements. The move was seen as an
attempt to prevent demonstrations and
reduce tensions that might jeopardize
the hostages.
Powell said officials believe many of
some 50,000 Iranians in the United
States on student yisas have violated
immigration laws, which require that
they be full-time students.
BICKERING broke out among the
Iranians occupying the embassy after a
week-long test of nerves with
Washington, according to a Palestine
Liberation Organization (PLO) official
in Ankara, Turkey. The PLO has a

flashback! Does lightning
strike twice? Well, it looked
like it might yesterday in Pur-
due's Ross-Ade Stadium as
Michigan almost rebounded
from an 18-point fourth quarter
deficit and five turnovers.
But no, there would not be a
celebration this week as a
determined Purdue defense
held Michigan on four plays
from the Boilermaker ten to
preserve a thrilling 24-21 upset.
As Michigan marched down the field
on drive after drive, aided by a couple
of Purdue turnovers, reminiscences of
the Rose Bowl comeback against
Washington were sent dancing through
the heads of Michigan rooters. In the
end, these fans must have had a feeling

sad fate
of deja vu as, similar to that game, Bo
Schembechler's unpredictable
Wolverines could not score from fourth
down territory and moved that much
further from Pasadena.
PASADENA IS only within reach .if
Michigan upsets powerful Ohio State in
Michigan Stadium next, Saturday.
Then, the Wolverines must hope for an
Indiana upset of Purdue to go west for a
fourth consecutive time.
With the score 24-19 and Purdue
trying desperately to run the clock out,
the Boilermakers' record-setting quar-
terback Mark Herrmann attempted a
pass to split end Bart Burrell.
Junior linebacker Andy Cannavino,
the team leader in tackles this season,
batted the ball up in the air and then
wrapped his huge hands around the
football. With clear sailing between
Cannavino and the end zone, he cradled

Council interviews administrator candidates

City Council matched names and
faces with resumes during six hours of
public interviews yesterday with the six
finalists in the search for Ann Arbor's
next city administrator.
The interviews were open to the
public in accordance with the state's
Open Meetings Act. But less than 20
citizens and city officialsstopped in for
any of the six hour session at Campus
BEGINNING AT 9 a.m., Council met
with Alan Harvery, from Vancouver,
Washington; John Elwell, from St.
Louis Park, Minnesota; and' William
Kirchhoff, from Wheaton, Illinois. After
lunch Terry Sprenkle, of Ames, Iowa;
Neal Berlin, from Iowa City, Iowa; and
Lawrence Gish, from Stillwater,
Oklahoma, were interviewed.
The six candidates, chosen by Korn-
Ferry International-the executive
search firm which handled the ap-
plication process-were named at a
ress conference Friday night. The
finalsists are currently city managers
in smaller U.S. cities. Four of the can-
didates manage cities which are also
college towns.
After six years as adminsitrator,

Sylvestor Murray left Ann Arbor in
September to Become city manager of

second administrator, after Guy Lar-
com, who held the post for 17 years.
discussed a wide range of city gover-
nment related issues-love and hate
between the city and the University, the
relationship between an administrator
and a bipartisan city council, budgets
and fiscal policy, citizen involvement,
housing and labor negotiations-all
issues Ann Arbor's third administrator
will have to deal with.
Mayor Louis Belcher directed Coun-
cil to think over each candidate's an-
swers and to be prepared to discuss
selection at the Council meeting
Tuesday night. A majority vote of the 11
member council is required to approve
a candidate for the position. Belcher
also told each candidate that he would
personally notify them of Council's
decision next Wednesday or Thursday.
The acutal vote is expected to take
place on Wednesday.
At the completion of the interviews,
Councilman Earl Greene (D-Second
Ward), said, "a couple (of the can-
didates) look good to me." Before the
meeting Council Democrats indicated

that only one or two of the candidates
they had recommended to the Mayor
were among those invited to the inter-
REPUBLIAN Councilman Edward
Hood (Fourth Ward) said five of the six
candidates he recommended-based on
a review of 20 resumes-were on the
list. Louis Senunas (R-Third Ward)
said four of his choices were included.

Bob Coop, a consultant for Korn-
Ferry, said the firm selected the six
finalists that "best fit" the profile they
compiled with council in August. He
said they suggested the recommen-
dations from nine members of a
citizens committee and council who
reviewed resumes of 20 applicants.
Belcher said he was satisfied with the

DETROIT - About 300 picketers,
policemen and inquisitive passersby
endured chilling temperatures yester-
day to attend an hour-and-a-half-long
rally at Kennedy Square protesting, the-
recent resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan
and last week's Greensboro, N.C.
shootout in which five anti-Klan
protesters were killed.
Rally organizers, led by members of
the labor-socialist Spartacus League
and a number of Detroit auto workers,
said they scored a major victory by ob-
taining permission late Friday to hold
the demonstration. Earlier this week,

Detroit Mayor Coleman Young
threatened to have any demonstrators
- pro or anti-Klan - arrested and
recommended against city council ap-
proval of any parade permits.
YOUNG'S. ACTION was premised on
an erroneous report that Klan sym-
pathizers planned to march in the city
Friday. The mayor said he would not
allow the safety of innocent citizens to
be' jeopardized by either group of
protestors. Anti-Klan organizers
reached an agreement with the police
and mayor's office Friday to hold "a
peaceful, legal rally.

Health care questioned at Ethics,
Humanism and Medicine conference

Gregory Collins amassed a $4,000 hospital bill as a result
of an alcoholic liver disease. Because he was a war veteran,
the federal government was forced to pay for his treatment.
This and other cases involving legal and moral choices
were the focus of the fourth conference orb "Ethics,
Humanism, and Medicine" (CEHM), held yesterday at the
Thomas Francis Jr. Public Health Building.
The Collins case, a fictitious one, was structured to raise
questions concerning the right to health care and who is
responsible for providing it.
DESIGNED AS AN exercise in critical thinking, the con-
ferenc brought together students, faculty and community
members, including U.S. Cong. Carl Pursell (R-2nd District)

to discuss today's moral issues as they relate to medical
Health care students and professionals, philosophers,
lawyers, humanitarians and other interested persons heard
speakers and formed small discussion groups to ponder
issues such as animal rights in experimentation, patients'
rights to know the extent of their illnesses, and life and death
decisions involving newborns.
CEHM is student run and was begun by Inteflex students
who did not feel sufficient attention was not paid to ethics at
the medical school level, organizers said.
"You can't learn ethics by taking courses," conference
Director Marc Basson, a fourth-year Inteflex student said.
"Small discussions are the best way to learn ethics."

Police round-up
A squad car stopped a green and white jeep Friday after-,
noon on State St. just south of the intersection of State and
Hill Sts. As one witness put it, "They pulled 'em over and all
these cdps came out of the blue." Police questioned the

the Ayatollah~Khomeini on the Diag at 8:30 p.m. last night.
The group, originating in East Quad, marched down Hill St.
to State, around South Quad, and then to the Diag for the
symbolic burning, shouting "Free the Tehran 60," and
"Join the march against Khomeini." According to group
member and LSA freshman Martin Tatuch, the protest was
a response to the recent kidnapping of 60 Americans in
Tehran, which he lapeled as "a breach of international law.
It's time for Americans to get into self-preservation," he
added. "We've got to protect our people," said Dave Rubin,
LSA freshman. "This i4 basically a breach of faith by the
Islamic Renublic." LSA sonhomore Larry Vadnais em-
