OKXD}OQCarter stops ol
imprts from Iran

From Reuter and AP
WASHINGTON-President Carter yesterday ordered
an immediate halt to oil purchases from Iran and warned
that he would reject unacceptable conditions for the release
of more than 60 American hostages at the U.S. Embassy in
Carter said in a special televised address that he had
stopped oil imports to "eliminate any suggestion that
economic pressures can weaken our stand on basic issues of
ALTHOUGH HE DID not mention the deposed Shah of
Iran, now undergoing cancer treatment in New York, Carter
made it clear he would refuse to bow to demands that the
former ruler be extradited to Iran to stand trial as an alleged
A senior U.S. official said after the President delivered his
address that halting oil imports removed a bargaining chip
which Iran's revolutionary ruler Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini might have used.
The oil cut-off had been considered for several days and
finally decided at a meeting President Carter held with his
senior policy advisers at the White House yesterday mor-
ning, the official said.
SHORTLY AFTER THE announcement of the oil cut-off
in Washington, Iran's clergy-dominated Revolutionary
Council declared that it would halt oil exports to the United4
Although the Iranian move was announced after the

President's television announcement, Iran's acting oil
minister, Ali Akbar, said the Revolutionary Council had
made its decision before learning of Carter's order.
On Saturday, amid clashes between anti-Shah Iranian
demonstrators and angry Americans in various U.S. cities,
the President ordered a crackdown on Iranian students who
might be in the United States illegally.
WASHINGTON INFORMED Iran that it was halting oil
imports 15 minutes before he began to speak at 2 p.m:Detroit
The official said Carter and his advisers had concluded
unanimously that stopping daily imports of 700,000 barrels of
crude oil and petroleum products from Iran would not lead
to retaliatory action against the embassy hostages.
Shipments from Iran represent about 3.8 per cent of the 19
million barrels of oil the United States uses every day.
OFFICIALS SAID the United States was not looking for
other suppliers to replace the Iranian oil and were counting
on Americans to make up the loss by conserving more
Iranian oil would not be missed at all if every car was
driven three miles a day less than at present, they said.
The President's decision won quick approval from leading
members of Congress, as well as oil industry executives.
AMONG THE FIRST to welcome the action was Senator
Edward Kennedy, who announced last week that he was
challenging Carter for the Democratic Party's 1980 presiden-

Ocity 'a ghost'

From AP and Reuter
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario-Firefighters
controlled a fire in the wreckage of a
chemical-loaded train yesterday, but
police' said the continuing threat of an
explosion of deadly chlorine gas meant
that 200,000 people who fled their homes
wouldhave to stay away at least one
.more day.
A derailed tanker car carrying 90
tons of poisonous chlorine lay perilously
close to burning tankers of propane gas
that exploded after the Canadian
Pacific freight train derailed late
Saturday in this western Toronto
)Firefighters, pouring tons of water

a'nd special coolant onto the cars, re-
ported bringing the fires under control
early yesterday. Flames still flickered
from some 'cracks, and 200 men con-
tinued to fight the fire.
No injuries were reported, but six
propane tank cars had exploded and
authorities were fighting to eliminate
fire near the chlorine tank because, if
subjected to extreme heat, it could'
form phosgene, a type of deadly gas
used in World War I.
Douglas Burrows, police chief of the
surrounding Peel region, said the
evacuees might be able to return home
today. "We still have a propane fire,"
he said yesterday. "We don't know when

it's gong to be extinguished. We'll have
to let it burn itself out."
After that, firefighters must let the
tanks and twisted wreckage cool before
they can begin repairs and move the
chlorine gas, he said.
Some chlorine was leaking from the
upended car and vaporizing. Initially
there were numerous reports of eye and
throat irritations, but an official of the
Ontario Environment Ministry said .
there was no serious health threat.
Authorities said the accident could
have been a holocaust had Larry
Krupa, 27, a trainman, not braved the
searing flames seconds after the crash

Alliance for Better Education
vies for four LSA-SG seats

East Quad has never been noted as
exactly being a hotbed of conformists
and quiet, non-activist students. Now,
in keeping'with the spirit that brought
the University the "killer" game and
the Residential College, East Quad has
its own political party for next week's
LSA Student Government (LSA-SG)

'Two age laws
affect A 2 bars

Although the group, the Alliance for
Better Education (ABE), is one of the
smallest of the five parties vying for
seats in the elections, its foui can-
didates, all from East Quad, say they
are "hopeful" of being elected to the 15-
member Executive Council of the
student government of the University's
largest college.
AND, ACCORDING to party member
Andrew Sloss, ABE is probably going to
be around for a while. 'If we do well in.
the election," he said, "we Will keep-it
up. Even if we don't get elected we'll
probably try again some other time."
Formed last week by the party's can-
didates - freshpersons Sloss and Karl
Poterack and sophomores Paul Lee and
Joel Vergun - ABE stresses "main-
taining the educational standards" of
the University as a main portion of
their program "to look after ,the in-
terests of the students."

"We want to bring Michigan on a par
with Harvard," said Sloss, adding the
University is "a little bit below" that
institution in terms of both academics
and reputation.
LSA-SG elections

Sloss said the party wants the
University to beef up both in-state and
out-of-state recruitment efforts to offset
declining enrollment and the smaller
breadth of courses offered by the
University that might result from an
enrollment drop.
POTERACK SAID the party is also
concerned with the issue of tenure. He

As many as 30 per cent of Ann Arbor's
liquor-serving establishments may be
violating state laws by refusing to ad-
mit adults between the ages of 18 and
20, or forcing them to sit in certain
areas because they are not 21.
Local bar and restaurant owners
claim the problem stems from a con-
flict between two state agencies, the
Liquor Control Commission (LCC) and
the Department of Civil Rights.
alcohol must be licensed through the
LCC, and if they are found to be serving
alcohol to people under 21, that license
may be revoked.
However, even though the passage of
Proposition D last November raised the
drinking age from 19 to 21, a state civil
rights act passed in 1976 states that an

owner or manager cannot refuse public
accommodation to adults on the basis of
age, according to Derek Flack, field
representative for the State Depar-
tment of Civil Rights.
A telephone survey of 19 area bars
and restaurants determined that four
have entry or seating restrictions and
two others reported they reserve the
right to utilize such restrictions depen-
ding on the situation.

Group begins push to lower drinking age

Citizens for a Fair Drinking Age (CFDA), a com-
mittee formed to lower the state drinking age back to
19, contacted the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
yesterday, seeking University participation in its
state-wide petition drive.
The immediate goal of the campaign is to gather the
350,000 to 500,000 signatures necessary to put a
proposition to change the drinking age on the 1980
general election ballot, according to CFDA treasurer
Steven Goforth.
DOUG HARGETT, Executive Director of the Lan-
sing-based group, has been travelling to college cam-
puses throughout the state to meet with student gover-
nments. Committees of interested students will be
formed on each campus to direct the -drives. One
student from each campus will be appointed to the
steering committee as the direct link between the CF-

DA and the students.
CFDA leaders stress that active participation by
students will play a major role in the success of their
campaign, including voter registration and petition
Hargett said if CDFA succeeds in getting the
drinking issue back on the ballot, he thinks getting the
proposal to lower the age passed will not be much
trouble. "The key," he said, "is central organization."
Hargett claimed that had last year's effort been better
organized, Proposition D, which raised the drinking
age to 21, never would have been passed.
HARGETT SAID he has received "excellent sup-
port" from the campuses he has visited. Margaret
Maly, a member of the MSA Legislative Committee,
said she believes the University "could get a good
strong committee going." She added that the voter
registration drive starting this week could boost the

Maly also said MSA supports the CFDA campaign
although the organizational details for this campus
have vet to be determined.
According to a CDFA report issued in May 1979, the
organization was formed because of dissatisfaction
many Michigan residents felt regarding the effects of
Proposition D. The strongest opponents of the law in-
clude 19-and 20-year-olds who feel the new age is un-
fair, and bar and liquor store owners who have lost a
good deal of business because of the hike.
The Proposal D Work Group appointed by Governor
Milliken last winter issued a report on the problems of
implementing Propositon D. Included in the results
was the lack of uniform enforcability of the law.
Hargett claimed that "enforcement is impossible."

season has
While most University students are
caught up at this time of year in the
midst of exams, term projects, and
homework, some are beginning to think
about another concern - the prospect
of finding a job after graduation.
Deborah May, assistant director of
the University's Career Planning and
Placement Office (CP&P) warned that
while most graduating students post-
pone the start, of their job hunt until
January, some prospective employers
begin recruiting workers during the fall
"STUDENTS DON'T put as much
time into career research as they do a
term paper," May said. "A good job
hunt takes a while. Don't be em-
barrassed if it takes a few months,"
May said that while schools teach
students skills, they do not teach
students how to look for jobs. It often
takes a while to get going on career
research since there is no one to check
up on a student and no deadline, as
there are in class projects, she ex-
A job hunt begins with the decision on
what kind of career a student wants to
enter and in which geographical
location the student wishes to work, ac-

begun pat 'U'
cording to career counselor Peggy
Hendrix. After that comes the com-
position of the resume and cover letter,
followed by exploring actual companies,
or organizations that might be in-
terested in hiring. While some com-
panies sendrecruiters to campus, a
student should count on doing plenty of
research on his or her own, Hendrix
Placement is sponsoring workshops on
Nov. 13, 14, and 15 on interviewing
techniques, job finding strategies, and
resume writing, respectively. These
workshops will be repeated during the
winter term.
Both May and Hendrix stressed the
importance of active job searches on
the part of the student. Counselors and
printed materials in the CP&P office
can offer suggestions on where to look
for jobs in one's particular field of study
and interest, and advise on resumes
and interviewing techniques.
Another service offered by CP&P is
the maintenance of a file of Campus In-
terview Forms. These files are presen-
ted to interviewers in a field of the
student's interest, as indicated by the
form. Virginia Stegath, Coin-

Thirman says he dodged his assailant's rubber dart by
leaping into the air. When
he landed again, he fired,
hitting his mark. Thirman

federal holiday, the banks were closed. But there are some
unpatriotic souls out there who know only that college life
means spending lots of money over the weekend, so when
the banks were closed, they resorted to that marvel of cam-
pus existence - the money machine. Alas, certain money
machines also decided to remember those who served in
the wars of yesteryear, and yesterday they refused to serve
up any cash. The*Ann Arbor Bank and Trust machine on
Liberty Street proudly displayed the message, "Tem-
porarily out of order, please do not use." But the National
Bank and Trust Company was a little more severe. After its


Student Directory seems to be a fitting portrayal of the
situation. While the Student Directory, the listing of studen-

out annually, serves as a guide to students, the cover reflec-

the doors of the building. Fully two-thirds of the cover- is
