From AP and Reuter
Iranian leaders yesterday dropped
their demand that the exiled Shah of
Iran be handed over to them im-
mediately and set new conditions for
freeing the U.S. Embassy hostages inw
Tehran. But the Moslem militants
holding the hostages rejected any com-
promise.
Iran also accused the United States of
stirring a "climate of war" in the
world, called for a meeting of the U.N.
Security Council, and hinted it mightk
seek an OPEC oil embargo against
America.
THE APPARENT split in Tehran
came after 11 days of public solidarity f.
between the hundreds of students who
seized the embassy Nov. 4, - holding 98
Jhostages - and the regime of Ayatollah
:Ruhollah Khomeini.
Iranian foreign affairs chief Abolhas-
san Bani-Sadr, in what he called "sim-
ple and very practical" proposals, said

MSA funding move riles MIR C

By TOM MIRGA
The president of the Michigan
Republicans Club (MIRC) last night said
he is angered by a Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) decision not to finance
an upcoming MIRC event and promised
to ask the Regents this week to suspend
the Assembly's fune-ing capacities once
again.
"It's pretty obvious if you don't meet
their ideological qualifications, you
don't get their money," , MIRC
president Lawrence Lichtman said
during last night's MSA meeting when
the decision was made.
The Republican student group asked
MSA for $1,400 in order to sponsor an
open house scheduled for tomorrow,
and a visit by Michigan Lt. Governor
James Brickley scheduled for Novem-
ber 27. MSA agreed to allocate $82 for
the Brickley visit, but declined to fund
the other event.
"BASICALLY, we do not feel we
should be- funding a strictly social
event, said MSA Budget Priorities
Committee (BPC) Coordinator Alan
Abrahams. "MIRC listed its two
biggest expenses as refreshments and a
disc jockey."
Lichtman said Abrahams "distor-
ted" what his group said in defense of
the event at a BPC hearing last week.
"At the hearing we did not emphasize
that this will be merely a social event.

We felt the mixer could be a
mechanism by which we could provide
members and guests with information
about MIRC and the Republican Party
presidential candidates.
"Our main focus is to provide infor-
mation and BPC knew that based on the
information we gave them," said
Lichtman.f
The MIRC president said his disap-
pointment was based not only on his
group's "solid record" but the fact that
MSA has allocated much larger sums to,
other student organizations, many of
which are not recognized by the
Assembly.
"[F THEY decide to give us this pit-
tance," Lichtman said, "we will go to
the Regents and recommend that all
funding capabilities be taken out of the
hands of MSA."
In other action, the Assembly pledged
to give campus radi o -station WCBN
$4000 with the provision that the
University's Office of Student Services
match that amount. The radio station
requested the funds in order to buy
equipment to boost its wattage from 10
to 200 watts.
A recent Federal Communications
Commission ruling eliminated a ban on
encroachment by larger wattage radio
stdtions on its weaker competitors.
WCBN general managr Ann Rebentisch
said the station faces elimination from

the airwaves in the future unless the
equipment is purchased.
IN LATE ACTION, MSA passed a
resolution urging the United States
government to treat Iranian students in
the country with fairness and requested
that thesIranian students holding the
American embassy in Tehran recon-
sider their recent tactics and release
the 98 hostages they have held since last,
week.
Assembly member Kathy Machle
said the resolution would be forwarded
to the U.S. State Department and the
American Embassy in Iran.

U.S. Attorney General Benjamin
Civiletti yesterday formally ordered
Iranian students in the United States to
give proof within 30 days that they are
full-time students as required by law or
face-possible deportation.
Preparing to respond to Civiletti's
order, the director of the University's
International Center Jon Heise met
with the Detroit office of Immigration
and Naturalization Service (INS)
yesterday. The University has more
Iranian students than any other college
or university in the state.
ACCORDING TO Heise, INS will send
four to five officers to the University
before mid-December to interview each
of the approximately 250 degree-

seeking Iranian students on campus.
Also yesterday, Acting , Vice-
President for Academic Affairs Alfred
Sussman requested that everyone at
the University "exercise patience and
restraint" in response to the current
situation in Iran.
"First of all, I'm proud of the cam-
pus," Sussman said. "What has hap-
pened elsewhere has not happened
here. I think that suggests the
sophistication of the University in
seeing that we conduct ourselves in a
fashion which is not xenophobic."
HE SAID he was concerned that there
"might be some undercurrents of
strong feeling that might be hurtful."
He said he will speak to University

deans today about the situation. The
deans will inform faculty and students
of the University's concern to avoid
trouble.
Sina Ebnesajjad, an Iranian student
working on a Ph.D. in chemical
engineering, said he had heard rumors
of incidents involving American
hostility to the Iranian students, but

Reagan
4enters-
raefor-,1
president,'
NEW YORK (AP)-Former Cali-
fornia Gov. Ronald Reagan, saying the
nation "hungers for a spiritual
revival," yesterday declared his can-
didacy for the 1980 Republican
presidential nomination.
Reagan, in his third bid for the
presidency, entered the crowded GOP
race as the acknowledged front-runner
IN A TAPED and televised speech in
which he. declared' his candidacy,
Reagan repated his controversial 1976
proposal to shift some functions of
government away from Washington to
state and local authorities.
". I shall regard my 'election as proof
that the people of the United States
have decided to set a new agenda and
have recognized that the human spirit
thrives best when goals are set and
progress can be measured in their
achievement," he said.
Reagan, a 68-year-old former movie
star, was the 10th man to declare his
candidacy for the 1980 GOP
nomination.
HIS 30 MINUTE announcement
speech was taped on Monday and
broadcast last night to millions.
Simultaneously, Reagan took the
podium to deliver the same speech in
person to a $500 a ticket Republican
rund-raiser at the New York Hilton.
In his speech, Reagan articulated a
number of often-heard Republican
themes, and he repeated his 1976
proposal for a transfer of some gover-
nment functions.
"We must review the functions of the
federal government to determine which
of those are closer to the people. The,
federal government has taken on fun-
ctions it never was intended to perform
and which it does not perform well,"
Reagan said.

By CHARLES THOMSON
In a move which one Washtenaw
County Coalition Against Apartheid
.(WCCAA) member termed a shift in the
group's publicity tactics, WCCAA is
running four candidates for election to
the Literature, Science and Arts
Student Government (LSA-SG)
Executive Council.
Noted for its disruption of a Regents
meeting last spring, the WCCAA has
opposed University investments in
companies which do business in South
Africa through many demonstrations
a'nd protests.
TTHE PURPOSE of WCCAA's un-
precedented election involvement is to
"use the election to publicize the WC-
CAA and its goals," according to one of
the party's candidates, Barbara
Lacker.
"I'm really running for the party,"
Lacker said. "If I win, I'll probably stay
on. but that's not what I'm running for.

I'm running for the good of the
coalition."
Other coalition candidates for LSA-
SG are Matt Frumin, Phillip Harper,
and Phillip Kwik.
ACCORDING TO Heidi Gottfried, a
member of the WCCAA steering com-
LSA-SG
elections
mittee and organizer of the group's
election participation, the WCCAA -in-
volvement does not mean the
organization is resigning from its ac-
tivist role. "It just means you'll see the
coalition on many fronts," she said.
"You'll see us on the streets again when
it gets warmer."
Kwik said the reason he's running is

Greetings from afar
In case you were wondering, we received a bit of corres-
pondence yesterday from an old friend. On the back of a
postcard of "Springtime in Washington, D.C." was a cryp-
tic note informing us that the writer, a former Ann Arbor
resident, was not planning a lecture tour. However, he went
on to say that he may soon be leaving the nation's capitol,
where he has been for most of this year, to travel to

the machines installed, and that they "would share them
with other institutions when they (the other banks) want to
re-issue their cards." Dorner said Ann Arbor Bank and
Trust pays for the space used in the University buildings,
but would be willing to share. Spokespersons for National
Bank and Trust and Huron Valley National Bank said their
institutions do not intend to change over to allow customers
to use the three money machines.
