Carter puts freeze on
Iranian assets in U.S.

Sprenkel accepts city position

employees as hostages showed no sign o
easing their stand-that the captives
will not be freed until Shah Mohammad
Reza Pahlavi is returned to Iran to
stand trial for his life. The shah is un-
dergoing treatment for cancer in a New
York hospital.
They declared that any attempt to
compromise on their "great divine
move" directed by Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini "is strongly denounced by us
and would be deemed treason," Tehran
Radio reported.
THIS MAY HAVE been aimed at of-
ficial Iranian statements Tuesday in-
dicating the hostages might be freed
before the return of the shah, if certain
other conditions were met. The United
States rebuffed the offer, saying there'

would be no negotiations while the
hostages were held.
State Department officials said last
night they were recalling special en-
voys Ramsey Clark, former attorney
general, and Senate aide William
Miller, who were stalled in Istanbul for
a week because Iranian leaders would
not see them.
President Carter's action to 'impose
the freeze also marked another big step
toward what one Treasury Department
official called "economic and political
warfa. e" instigated by the Iranians.
WHILE IRAN said its assets in the
United States totalled about $12 billion,
Treasury Secretary G. William Miller
said the actual total is less than $6
Freezing the assets means the
Iranian government can't spend it
without U.S. government permission.
For example, U.S. banks have out-
standing loans totalling $2.5 billion to
Iran, according to Georgel Salem, a
Wall Street banking analyst with Bach
Halsey Stuart Shields. He said the loans
are concentrated among the 10 largest
U.S. banks, led by Bank of America,
Citibank, and Chase Manhattan.
The freeze also means that the 50,000
Iranian students currently in the United
States might be unable to receive mon-
thly stipends from the Iranian gover-

solid waste shredding
facility-similar to the shredder
proposed for Ann Arbor.
BECAUSE OF his experience with
solid waste and resource recovery
systems, one of Sprenkel's first
priorities' will be to develop with
Council a solid waste management
program for Ann Arbor, Belcher
said. A shredder, a refuse-derived
fuel system, and a recycling
program will be considered.
Before he became Ames' city
manager four years ago, Sprenkel
was city manager of South Windsor,
Connecticut for 14 years. He also
supervised Belfast, Maine between
1958.and 1962.
Council interviewed Sprenkel and
five other candidates on Saturday.
The finalists were selected from
more than 60 applicants by Korn-
Ferry Internationl, a Los Angeles-
based executive search firm.
COUNCILMAN David Fisher (R-
Fourth Ward). said yesterday he
went to Ames Monday without the
mayor's knowledge to investigate
the Ames shredder and find out
"what kind of town Ames was."
Fisher said he also went to Iowa City

and Wheaton, Illinois, the towns of
two other candidates. Upon his
return, he told the mayor about his
trip, Fisher said.
Fisher said he posed as a prospec-
tive resident of Ames while talking
to people there because he "didn't
want to endanger his (Sprenkel's)
employment position."
'I thoughit it was sone-
do1 for iie citv.
-Darid Fisher, Fourth
Ward Con icili memiber
"I thought it was something I
could and should do for the city,"
Fisher said. He said he didn't think
Council should choose a candidate
for the city's top administrative job
on the basis of one 50-minute inter-
pleased" to see Fisher on Monday,
Sprenkel said. They chatted for a

few minutes and discussed the
shredder, he added.
Ann Arbor's City Administrator is
the connection between the mayor
and Council and 17 city departmen-
ts, including Utilities, Solid Waste,
Police and Fire. The administrator
also supervises the city clerk,
assessor, treasurer, controller and
two assistant administrators.
According to a job profile com-
piled by Council, the administrator
is supposed to suggest goals and
programs to Council in addition to
following up on Council questions
and orders.
ONE OF THE administrator's
biggest responsibilities is for-
mulating the city's budget. Belcher
said he expects Sprenkel to continue
the plan to convert tht city budget to
a "zero base budgeting" system, a
concept Sprenkel worked with in
Sprenkel said he "had a budget to
put together" in Ames before
moving to Ann Arbor in January.
While he was concerned about the
fate of Iowa State in the match on
Saturday against Nebraska,
Sprenkel declined to predict the
winner of the Michigan-Ohio State

Certainly no film director understands the complexities of male-female rela-
tionships better than Bergman: the oreoccupation has left its trace throughout
his career. In this distinguished psychodrama, an American (ELLIOT GOULD)
strains the marriage of a Swedish couple (BIBI ANDERSSON, MAX VON
SYDOW). Andersson gives an exquisite performance as the wife and makes
this one of Bergman's most complex and unsettling works. "The Touch is the
best about love he has ever made. The film is full of acting moments that are
physically miraculous, like a brilliant fish drawn up on a line."=Penelorp

THE DEVICE, called a computerized
tomographic scanner, or CT scanner
for short, is currently used by Univer-
sity Hospital physicians to diagnose
heart disease.
In principle it is similar to a device
the hospital will soon build and use for
research, thanks to a $7.87 million
federal grant - one of the largest ever
received for a University project -
recently awarded to three University
medical researchers.
Computerized scanning techniques
have been hailed as a medical
breakthrough similar in importance to
the development of the X-ray. The
scanning techniques are products of the'
Prize for medicine this year for
developing the computer techniques

and a radioactive tracer suitable for
use in the human brain was not
developed until 1977.
Interin University President Allan
Smith and Hospital officials yesterday
announced the award of the grant at t
press conference at the hospital.,
THE $7.87 million grant, with $2.5
million added by the University, will
buy a more sensitive, advanced scan-
ner than the one described above and a
The advanced equipment will
measure energy given off by radioac-
tive tracers as they are processed in the
brain, 'providing researchers with a
means to observe the brain as it works.
University researchers hope the new
scanner will help them gain insights in-
to the abnormal brain activity that lies
behind diseases such as epilepsy,
stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral
palsy and Huntington's disease.
BUT THE SCANNER is a research
tool, not a device to treat patients.
Hospital officials and doctors said
yesterday it may be ten, years before
the technique can be used routinely to

diagnose disease.
The federal grant was awarded to
three University nuclear medicine
researchers: Drs. William Bieirwaltes,
Bernard Agranoff and Sid Gilman.
U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell (R-
Plymouth), from his seat on the house
Health, Education and Welfare sub-
committee, is helping to usher the grant
money through Congress.
The University is one of seven in the
nation receiving a grant for advanced
computer scanning study from the
National Institute of Neurological and
Communicative Disorders and Stroke,
one of the several National Institutes of
Health (NIH).
THE NEW scanner will use a
technique called Positron Emission
Tomography (PET).
As opposed to the CT scanner shown
off yesterday at University Hospital,
the PET scanner measures radioac-
tivity from forms of some of the major
organic molecules, such as carbon,
ammonia, or oxygen. The molecules
have half lives of less than an hour and
a half.

"The problem with our conventional
molecules (used in research) today, is
that you have to take that conventional
molecule and add a foreign (radioac-
tive) molecule to that," explained Dr.
John Keyes, a University specialist in
internal medicine and radiology who
will manage the operation of the new
KEYES SAID that the brain would
not absorb the molecules used at
present, and so the scanning technique
could not be used in the small
capillaries of the brain.
The PET scanner that the University
will acquire will be used in five
separate research projects.
One project, for example, will study
the "very intense neural activity of the
brain" during an epileptic seizure, ac-
cording to researcher Dr. Kenneth
Kooi said the PET scanner will show
the amount and type of chemicals
processed in the brain during an epilep-
tic seizure and allow the researcher to
see a 'map' of neural activity.

Game plan changes Ohio town's
name to Go Bucks, Go Blue'.


It was the Deltas
against the rules..


(Continued from Page 1)
"This rivalry," said his son, "is just a
fun thing for this town to bicker over.
You have your Michigan fanatics here,
and your Ohio State fanatics."
THIS IS A red-hot rivalry that boils
over every year at this time," said.
Sharon Taylor, who owns the Archbold
Buckeye with her husband. ".But
there's never been this organized con-
fusion before."
Last night at the Wauseon Motor Co.,
nine miles north-of Go Bucks, Go Blue,
celebrants kicked off the activities by
welcoming Miss Michigan to Ohio. She
was joined by Miss Ohio and the two
gave short speeches to an audience of
over 100. The Michigan cheerleaders
and pom-pom girls performed, along
with the 25-member Wauseon High
School Pep Band. In addition, the
mayors of Wauseon and Archbold both
spoke, expressing enthusiasm for what
they hope will be an annual tradition.
To conclude the ceremony, Lovejoy
made the offijial proclamation to

NINE MILES away, at the newly-
named village of Go Bucks, Go Blue,
about 200 people lined the main street
for a parade. At the ceremony which
followed, Mayor Lovejoy presented
village keys to Miss Ohio and Miss
Michigan. The Michigan cheerleaders
and pom-pom girls led cheers for the
local residents, and the Wauseon High
School Pep Band played several num-
bers. The crowd was composed mostly
of youngsters and their parents.
"It's all really a big promotion put on
by the local radio station," said Jack
Stover, one of five owners of the
Wauseon Motor Company.
The station, WHFD, is sponsoring the
activities. Manager Max Smith said
that it was the "spirit" in Go Bucks, Go
Blue that brought on the changing of its
"YOU SEE the spirit everywhere,"
he said. "It's a real special thing." Jack
Stover explained that this idea had been
considered before, but "This is the first
time Max Smith ever gotthe merchants
behind him."
Some of the town's merchants said
that business has not improved yet, but
they expected an influx of customers
later in the week.
"This celebration is a good idea,"
said Tom Mafziger, owner of the True
Value hardware store. "I'm looking
forward to having more business."

But some of the people in Archbold,
were unaware of the town activities.
"A PARADE?" asked one puzzled
passerby. "When's that supposed to
The town celebration began about six
years ago, according to Taylor. She
said a local physician used to fly his U-
M flag over his back porch the day of
the big game. Several other Michigan
alumni joined him. Soon, the OSU fans
demonstrated their affections for their
team by flying their flags.
"Soon," explained Taylor, "the flags
'came" out earlier and were left out
ICKEY'S TAVERN is the village cen-
ter for the friendly U of M-OSU rivalry.
An eight-foot-long Ohio State banner
graces the wall above the counter,
while pictures of former Ohio State and
Michigan players hang from the walls.
"This is all a lot of fun," said owner
"Bummer" Dominique, the 1971
graduate of Ohio State.
The festivities at Ickey's started in
1975 when, the day of the OSU-U-M,
game, a coffin with a picture of Archie,
Griffin in it appeared atop the bar coun-
"That night, the people piled in, dan-
ced on the tables, and had a real good-
time," he said.
Dominque said the spirited com-
petition between the two groups of fans
goes on "52 weeks a year.

People get ready, there's a ship coming!
