Iran threatens
'harsh' action

Regents O.K.
release of

From UPI, Reuter, and AP
TEHRAN,,Iran - To the cheers of
100,000 Iranians chanting "Down. with
America," Moslem militants yesterday
threatened "harsher" measures again-
st the hostages in the U.S. Embassy if
the shah is moved to any country but
The threat was the first since
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
reprimanded the students last week for
threatening to kill the hostages if the
United States attempted any rescue.
Marxists joined the crowd today in a
massive demonstration of support for
the students holding the hostages. It
was the first time since the November 4
storming of the embassy that members
of the Marxist Fedayeen-I-Khalq
movement had, joined the daily anti-
American demonstrations around the
occupied compound.
As the war of nerves between
Washington and Khomeini's regime
went through its 13th day, President
Carter called on outraged Americans to
refrain from abusing innocent Iranians
in the United States.
Carter canceled a trip to Florida and
a Thanksgiving vacation in Georgia
because of the crisis, but reassured
Americans that there was "no reason to
panic" about potential fuel shortages
following his decision to ban Iranian oil
A FEDERAL judge in Washington
yesterday ordered Carter to lift a ban
he imposed against parades and
demonstrations by Iranian students.
In issuing the temporary restraining
order, U.S. District Court Judge
Aubrey Robinson said the government
had failed to prove that American
hostages in the U.S. Embassy in Tehran

would be endangered if Iranian demon-
strators were attacked by American
The government is expected to ap-
peal against the ruling, and an appeals
court decision could come today.
FEDERAL AGENTS yesterday in-
vestigated an anonymous telephone
call that said Iranians were responsible
for a bomb that exploded aboard a U.S.
airliner in flight yesterday, forcing an
emergency landing..
keep low
The seizure of the American embassy
in Iran has once again focused local at-
tention on the University's ap-
proximately 250 Iranian students, the
largest contingent of foreign students
on campus.
But now, less than nine months after
the fall of the Shah of Iran, the Iranian
students on campus are conspicuous
mainly by their lack of visibility,
- political organization, and political ac-

The Regents yesterday grudgingly
agreed to comply with a npw state law
and release the name-linked salary
records of University faculty and staff.
Voting 7-0 (Regent Deane Baker, R-
Ann Arbor, was absent) to make
salaries public, the Regents said they
believed they had no choice but' to
acquiesce to the state law. They have'
had a long-standing policy of refusing to
release name-linked salary infor-
Allan Smith said the executive officers
would make decisions on the requests
Monday, and some response will be
made early next week to those asking
for salary information. He said the
University would probably make a copy

of the list available in the University
"It is extremely ill-advised," Regent
Paul Brown (D-Petoskey) said of the
amendment to the state Freedom of In'
formation Act that spurred yesterday's
decision. "All of the information which
will be given has basically been
available in other forms." Brown said
he could foresee problems for the
University in competing for top-flight
people and internal problems created
by the disclosure.
"It is an extremely poor judgment on
the part of the legislature and shows a
lack of understanding of this in-
stitution," Brown said.
REGENT ROBERT Nederlander (D-
Birmingham) said, "This will make us

SABRE divers

Stressing diversity in its campaign
for seats on the LSA Student Gover-
nment (LSA-SG) Executive Council,
the Student Alliance for Better
Representation (SABRE) has the
largest single block of candidates in the
"If you look hard enough," said
SABRE's campaign manager Dave
Fantera, "you can find a person on
SABRE who you agree with on a few
things." Fantera says SABRE can-
didates "range from pretty conser-

vative to relatively liberal."
WITHIN A "certain framework," the
party's 17 candidates for the LSA
student government Executive Council
are free to take varying positions on
campus issues, Fantera said.
Comments by several of the party's
candidates supported the Fantera
assertion on the party's diversity of
"There are just some things I don't
agree with," said N. Michael Dudyn-
skay, a SABRE candidate of hiq view of
positions held by many SABRE can-
didates. "If everybody else votes the
party line, and it's something I don't
think a majority of people want, I'll
vote against it." Dudynskay described
himself as "conservative."
ANOTHER SABRE candidate, Susan
Labes, said she does not stick to a strict
party line on certain issues. "I see

myself as representing a 'new breed' of
SABRE," Labes wrote on a position
statement. "In the past, SABRE has
taken a very moderate stand on many
issues. Although my own ideologies are
also fairly moderate, I feel that SABRE
needs to take on a new attitude. The
students want action; SABRE has been
too much talk for too long."
The party's other candidates for LSA-
SG executive council are freshpersons
Barbara Boghosian, Chuck Vincent,
Lauri Slavitt, and Michael Miles;
sophomores Robert Jordan, David
Trott, Amy Hartmann, and Julie
Foster; and juniors Douglas Parker,
Mary Law, Tricia Valenti, Kenneth
Vest, J. P. Adams, Laura Munn,_ and
John Wasung.
Adams and Trott are also running for
LSA-SG president and vice-president,

The Oscar Peterson concert,
originally scheduled for 8:30
tomorrow night at Hill
Auditorium, has been postponed.
Tickets will be honored at an as-
yet unscheduled future perfor-
mance, according to Eclipse Jazz
promotion coordinator Roger
. Cramer said Peterson has been
delayed in Mississauga, Ontario,
where the performer was
evacuated from his home earlier
this week after derailed train
cars posed a threat of con-
taminating the area with
poisonous gas.
Some 4,000 people had tickets
for the concert. Cramer said a
refund policy has not been
established, but he encouraged
patrons to keep their tickets for a
rescheduled performance.

Terry Sprenkel has been on the phone
for days. Everyone, it seems, wants to
know his plans for his final months in
Ames, Iowa and what he will do when
he moves on to Ann Arbor in January.
But Sprenkel, the Ames city manager
who was chosen to be Ann Arbor's third
city administrator on Monday, doesn't
know the solutions for the city's
problems yet.
"I can't sit here in Ames and tell you
what the answers are (for Ann Arbor),"
Sprenkel said. So until he moves here
with his family, he said, "I'll be doing a
lot of reading and a lot of studying."
BY MID-JANUARY the 21 year
veteran of city government will be at
the helm of Ann Arbor's ad-
ministration. Sprenkel will supervise
Ann Arbor's $43 million budget, 17 city
departments and about 800 city em-
As the link between city government
and city departments.he will sit to the
right of Mayor Louis Belcher at the
Monday night Council meetings to offer
his recommendations and answer
council's questions about a plethora of
city operations.
In Ames, a university town that has
been described as a small version of
Ann Arbor, city council members and
department heads say they are "sorry



.. prepares for Az job
to see him go." They cite his financial
expertise and the "open management"
of his administration in the central
Iowa town of 46,500.
Ames Mayor Lee Fellinger says she
"enjoyed working with Sprenkel in the
four years he managed the city" which
she descirbed as a "rapid growth"
community. Ames' electric utility, and
hospital are being expanded and a new
water treatment plant is being con-
SPRENKEL'S recommendations to

Ufer, Bo highlight 'M'
pep rally at Mudbowl


The excitement and tension that's
been building on campus this week
F'or (1 preriei' 0]f Tlie

reached a peak last night in the Mud-
bowl at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house,
as about 3,000 fans surrounded a
blazing bonfire to cheer the Wolverines
on to victory in today's Big Ten
showdown for the roses.
The rally was plagued from the outset
by a faulty microphone system, but the
annoying problem only slightly dam-

pened the enthusiasm of the spectators.
Emcee Jim Brandstatter, a University
graduate and former All-American of-
fensive tackle started the show a half
hour late. During the delay, University
cheerleaders led the crowd in a series
of cheers.
"THE WHOLE effect of these great
former All-Americans is taken away
(by the faulty microphone) because you
can't hear what they are saying," com-
plained one fan who was straining to

Their weapons? Squirt guns. Two women in the group con-
fronted a teller asking for money, while two men stood wat-
ch at the door with their plastic guns. "It seemed to be more
of a stunt than anything else," said a teller at the bank, who
asked to remain unidentified. Police, who refused to com-
ment on the incident, hauled the foursome away but
released them a short time later.
Advice for the Regents
Social Work Prof. Jesse Gordon knows exactly when to
hit the University Regents for a favor. During last night's
meeting with members of the Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs (SACUA), some of the University's
chief decision-makers expressed their feelings on the sear-


official a policy which the restaurant and bar has been
practicing for months. The club's directors unanimously
voted to make students members without requiring them'to
pay dues, as has been the case in the past. Under the policy,
a portion of students' mandatory Union fees will be fun-
neled to the club. 4
