Carter puts
freeze on
Iran assets
From AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON-President Carter yesterday froze an esti-
mated $5 billion in Iranian government assets held in U.S. banks
and asked the United Nations Security Council to reject Iran's
request for an emergency meeting.
At the same time, the State Department took its hardest line
yet toward the Iranians, insisting that students who seized the
U.S/ Embassy and some 60 American hostages must agree to re

lease the captives, before
there can be any negotiations
of U.S.-Iranian relations.
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance flew
to New York and conferred with U.N.
Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim,
who has offered to mediate the crisis
that erupted Nov. 4 when Iranian
militants seized the embassy, in which
they hold 98 hostages.
VANCE DECLINED comment as he
left Waldheim's townhouse after talks
of slightly more than an hour. Before
the meeting, he was asked about Iran's
call for a" U.N. Security Council meeting
and said, "We have indicated that if the
hostage question is resolved, then we're
prepared to see the Security Council go
forward and deal with the issues that
anyone wishes to put before it, in-
cluding the Iranians."
Meanwhile, in New York, the deposed
Shah of Iran will return to Mexico from
New York within 10 days, NBC news
reported last night, quoting well-placed
"Administration officials are not only
aware of the Shah's plans, they have
been encouraging him not to delay his
departure," the network said.
THE 15-NATION security council
met for about 45 minutes in the early
evening and decided to hold further
consultations on the Iranian request,
but set no time. Waldheim said they
probably would be held today.

WASHINGTON - A federal appeals
court' yesterday upheld the conviction
of Rep. Charles Diggs Jr. (D-Mich.),
who took kickbacks from staffers and
had government paychecks issued to
persons who handled his personal af-
Diggs said he would seek a rehearing
from the full 10-member U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals for the District of
Columbia, since the three-judge panel
was divided on the issue.
In a 2-1 decision, a U.S. Court of Ap-<
peals panel upheld all 29 counts that led
to Diggs' jury conviction a year ago and
a three-year prison sentence that he has
not started serving.
"THE DEFENDANT defrauded the
public of not only substantial sums of
money, but of his faithful and honest
services," said the mnajority opinion by

William Lovejoy. "Many folks go
through Archbold on their way to Ann
Arbor," Lovejoy said. "This was the
natural place for the celebration."
"In the 1976 mp of Michigan," the
mayor explained, "the person who
composed it put in two fictitioug towns
- Go Blue, Ohio, just south of the bor-
der, and Beat Bo, Michigan, outside of
Detroit. We were laughing about it and
decided to rename our town Go Bucks,
Go Blue for a week a year."
Residents celebrated the occasion
last night, accompanied by Miss
Michigan and Miss Ohio, the Michigan

cheerleaders and pom-pom girls, and

happened to Archbold since the

Terry Sprenkel, the city manager
of Ames, Iowa, yesterday confirmed,
that he would accept the position of
City Administrator in Ann Arbor.
By a unanimous vote Tuesday
evening, City Council authorized
Mayor Louis, Belcher to offer
Sprenkel the city's top ad-
ministrative post. Sprenkel is expec-
ted to take office, with a $48,000
salary, by mid-January.
"I TALKED with the mayor this
morning," Sprenkel said last night.
The contract agreement has been
completed and he said he is awaiting

written confirmation from the
With 21 years of administrative
experience, Sprenkel will be Ann
Arbor's third city administrator. Af-
ter six years, former City Ad-
ministrator Sylvester Murray left in
September to become city manager
in Cincinnati, Ohio. Guy Larcon held
the post for 17 years prior to Murray.
Ames, which has a population of
46,500, is "a smaller version of Ann
Arbor," according to Belcher. The
site of Iowa State University, Ames
also has an airport, hospital, anda

Perhaps the least accurate way to
portray the attitude of the People's Ac-
tion Coalition (PAC) on the current LSA
Student Governnent (LSA-SG) cam-
paign is to call its attitude unsure.
"We are going to win all seven
seats," said "D" Ghosh, PAC's incum-
bent candidate for LSA-SG and
spokeswoman for the party's slate in
the election.
ANOTHER PAC candidate, James
Lindsay, after first stating he "thinks"
PAC candidates will win seats on the
executive council, corrected himself
and said he "knows" PAC will do so. "I
want to win. I think PAC has the people
to do the job. I know we're going to
win," he said.
:The other PAC candidates are
Juniors Aron Kaufman and Lucille
Rowels and Sophomores Sharon Bray,
Raymond Cassar,'and Paul Liu.
PAC was formed a year ago in Mar-
ch, emphasizing a commitment to
social change. Ghosh, who still speaks
of the group's "commitment," says
she's confident about the group's

because of the groups history.
ACCORDING TO Ghosh, PAC is con-
fident because "people associate PAC
with a lot of good things they have
done," and said she plans to "keep up
change in,a postive, progressive way."
PAC confidence comes despite the
fact that the party is not running can-
didates for either president or vice

-pOS ts
a number of issues on campus, em-
phasizing that PAC concerns were
diverse. "I've been in student gover-
nment and I've seen things happen that
I want to see continue," she said. Ghosh
added that Michigopoly, an information
booklet produced by LSA-SG, should
be continued.
Ghosh also said PAC wants to bring
students into the tenure decision
process. "We all feel very strongly that
students should have a say-so in tenure
decisions," she said, adding that the
newly reactivated Joint Faculty
Student Policy Committee might prove
valuable as a useful tool to increase
student participation on tenure issues.
Divestment is also an issue which
concerns PAC,. according to Ghosh.
Although indicating that "it's not my
top priority," Ghosh said "people
should know where their money is being
invested," and said PAC favors
University divestment from holdings in
South Africa.
Bray mentioned that another issue
PAC was "very much" interested in is
expanding the system within the
University for experiential learning.

Ghosh said the party is not running a
slate for the presidency "because we
think that Dan (Solomon of the Student

ficially decided that we are going to
verbally endorse Dan. He's got the
