WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, acting at his wife's behest, or-
dered an immediate U.S. airlift of
special food for children and other sup-
plies to Indochinese refugee camps in
Thailand.
Roaslynn Carter, who visited the
camps last week, announced the
presidential action yesterday when she
detailed her recommendations for
helping thousands of sick and starving
refugees.
"WE CANNOT lose time," she told a
White House gathering of executives
from international relief agencies.
"The situation is urgent."
Mrs. Carter announced that the
president also approved these other'
recommendations:
" An immedaite $2 million grant to
UNICEF to buy rice for the refugees,
whose food supply was said to be less
than 30 days.
* An increase in the number of
refugees from Thailand to be resettled
in the United States. Hereafter, most of
the monthly quota of 14,000 refugees
allowed into America will be filled from
Thai refugee camps rather than from
among the boat people in Malaysia and
Hong Kong.
" $4 million for the care and main-
tenance of refugee camps.
" A review of the refugee reset-
tlement process, which is said to take
too long.

THE AIRLIFT will contain vegetabl
oils and other food to -meet th(
nutritional needs of the refugees, many
of whom suffer from malnutrition.

It also will include mobile equipment
to provide water for refugee camps and
equipment to improve communication
between camps and relief agencies in
Bangkok, Mrs. Carter said.
"There will be at least one shipment
immediately and if we need more we
will do it," said Richard Holbrooke,
assistant secretary of state for Far

implement the recommendations comes
out of Carter's $69 million pledge to
help the refugees, plus other emergen-
cy funds.
Mrs. Carter also suggested an airlift
of equipment such as fork lifts and
cranes to Cambodia to help distribute
food and medical supplies. Carter has
not yet approved that because the

In addition, Mrs. Carter prodded here
husband to appoint quickly a new U.S
coordinator for refugee affairs. Amra
bassador Dick Clark, who held the.-
position, resigned recently to work fia
Sen. Edward Kennedy's presidential
campaign.
Carter, in a brief appearance at thy
meeting before his wife's report wa;
given, said U.S. proposals to aid Cam,
bodian refugees sometimes backfir,
and 'may be more effective if made by
the United Nations or poor nations.
n students' i
group, said Iranian students should be
deported 'if they "cause trouble." He
predicted there would be a growing ten-
sion between Iranians and Americans
until the problem in Iran has abated.
Another member of that group, LSA
freshman Andy Sloss said, "I think tf
(Iranian) students are on campus, are
getting an education, and aren't.
causing trouble, they should be allowed
to stay."
Sloss also said the situation in Iran rs
"causing a little bit of resentment,.
among students."
THE IRANIAN students will be
required to produce passports and for
ms bearing arrival information as well
as evidence that they are properly,
enrolled at a college and have paid,.;
school fees. They are also forbidden to
have jobs. The students will be,
photographed, but not fingerprinted.
The failure of the students to report to.
INS, or the provision of false infor,
mation would result in deportation
proceedings. ;

that he tends to discount them. He said
he has not seen any first-hand inciden-
ts, and that he finds the attitude of the
Americans on campus toward Iranians
to be one of "support and sympathy."
Ebnesajjad said Americans realize
that the students here are not the ones
who are holding the 98 hostages in the

i

'Iran leaders drop
demand for Shah

American embassy in Tehran. The
main reason he cited for lack of in-
cidents, however, was "simply because
there have not been any demon-
strations (by Iranians) here."
YESTERDAY'S order by the attor-
ney general' to check the visas of
Iranian students was intended to
placate U.S. citizens, according to
Justice Department officials. The of-
ficials, who asked not to be identified,
said the primary purpose of the policy
was to forestall any violence by
Americans that could threaten the lives
of hostages who have been held at the
U.S. embassy for the past 10 days.
K. Allin Luther, University professor
of Persian Studies, said, "I've been told
some of them (Iranian students) are
worried and afraid. There have been
reports of people being threatened.
"These students at Michigan are
completely innocent of everything. It's
really uncivilized for people to hold
them responsible for what's happened
and to threaten them," he added.

tions, Sen. Henry . Jackson, (D-
Wash.), said the proposals "will never
be accepted."
BANI-SADR'S conditions were set
out in a letter to U.N. Secretary-
General Kurt Waldheim.
"The American government should,
at least, accept the investigation of the
guilt of the former Shah of Iran and its
consequences," Tehran Radio quoted
him as telling Waldheim. "The
American government should return to
the Iranian government the wealth and
property which the shah, his family and
the leaders of the former regime have
transferred to the United States."
Bani-Sadr went on to ask for a
Security Council meeting, saying, "The
American government is immersing
the world in a climate of war and the
government of the Islamic Republic of
Iran sees its own peace and the peace of
the region and the whole world en-
dangered."
BANI-SADR said President Carter's
boycott of Iranian oil amounted to
economic war and predicted that any
U.S. military action would bring a
Soviet response.
He said he thought the Soviet Union
would react to any U.S. military action
against Iran, despite the abrogation of
the 1921 Iranian-Soviet treaty.
Meanwhile, Japan said "no,"
Australia said "maybe" and Britain
kept its own counsel yesterday about
whether they will join the United States
in a boycott of Iranian oil.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE dealers,
meanwhile, credited what one called
President Carter's "guts and
aggressiveness" for giving a boost to
the dollar, whose value rose against
other currencies in morning trading
yesterday in London and other
markets.
In announcing he was cutting off U.S.
purchases of 70,000 barrels a day in
Iranian oil and oil products, Carter in-
dicated Monday he would welcome
parallel moves by U.S. allies. But
foreign officials said they were
unaware of any direct American
request for concerted action.
Ten per cent of the oil Japan con-
sumes comes from Iran. Iranian oil ac-
counts for no more than four per cent of
U.S. consumption.
AUSTRALIAN Foreign Minister An-
drew Peacock applauded Carter's;
move. In a Canberra news conference,
he was asked whether Australia would
turn back Iranian oil - less than one
per cent of Australia's supplies as an
act of solidarity with the United States.
"I don't think it is necessary for us to
do that at this stage," he replied. "But
it may well become a consideration that
we will move to."
British government officials declined
to comment publicly on Carter's
decision. But a spokesman for Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher said, "You
can take it for, granted that we're
keeping in close touch vh the United
States on the whole situation."
