ferent view on that subject, as he joined
the march from the,Diag to the Federal
Building on Liberty Street. ,
"I disagree with terrorism," he said,
"and I'm not sure we should deport the
shah. But I'm not concerned with a loss
of American international prestige if
we do. The U.S. supporting dictator-
ships as they are doing in Chile and
South Africa is doing more to under-
mine American influence than any shah
deportation would."
SEVEN OR eight Ann Arbor police
were present at the rally, along with
several security guards. There were no
major disturbances, although two
minor scuffles broke out, one on the
Diag, and another en route to the
Federal Building. Both were quickly

ended by State Security guards.
One spectator ran through the crowd
and tore a banner which members, of
the demonstration party were un-
furling. In another incident, an egg was
thrown at a speaker addressing the
group in front of the Graduate Library.
Several of the spectators were
University administrators, including
Vice-President for Student Services
Henry Johnson, who expressed concern
over maintaining a quiet atmosphere'
on campus during the Iranian situation.
INTERIM UNIVERSITY President
Allan Smith released a statement
yesterday commending Iranian studen-
ts on this campus for the "propriety" of
their conduct, and reminding other
students that deliberate provocation of

violence is a "distortion" of the right to
free speech (See Page 2).
Thirty-five individuals organized by
senior art student Mary Nash met
Monday night at the International Cen-
ter to draft a statement in support of the
protection of Iranian students on cam-
pus.
"We felt that the majority of people in
the University community did not favor
any kind of violence against anyone,
and needed a forum to express their

views," Nash said.
LAST TUESDAY, the Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA) also passed a
resolution urging the U.S. government
to "deal with Iranian students in the
United States with magnanimity," and
to reconsider the recent decision to
deport all Iranian students who are in
the country illegally.
MSA also commended all students for
"refraining from acts and statements
which could promote violence and
disorder on campus."

Graduate student Denis Hoppe, also
of YSA said af yesterday's demon-
stration, "I'm concerned about the gag
order on Iranian students. It gags
American students' rights to protest
American intervention as well."
As ,for the American hostages in
Tehran, Hoppe said, "They don't want
American troops to be sent. We'd also
like to remind people that the shah isn't
a hero. He should be put on trial. This
country doesn't have a policy of har-
boring criminals."

stoked the religious frenzy by broad-
casting film taken last year of a series
of bloody riots against Shah Moham-
mad Reza Pahlavi that led to his exile
in January and the downfall the next
month of the government he left behind.
State Department spokesman Hod-
ding Carter said any trial of the
hostages, even one that ended in a par-
don, would be a "mockery" of inter-
national principles.
"If there is anything more unaccep-
table than the taking of hostages it
would be this (a tyial)," he told repor-
ters in Washington. "It is an outright
violation of diplomatic relations and
diplomatic protection."
U.S. DIPLOMATS attempted unsuc-
cessfully in New York to convince other
U.N. Security Council members to con-
demn a possible spy trial for the
hostages. Council President Sergio
Palacios de Vizzio of Bolivia said only
one unidentified member of the 15-
member council supported the U.S.
request.

Smith ask s,

Iran. issue
Interim University President
Allan Smith issued the following
statement yesterday:
"I would hope that in the
current Iranian crisis, the prime
concern of all Americans would
be concern for the lives and
safety of those persons being held
in Tehran. Conduct which
jeopardizes or threatens their
safety can hardly be justified.
The Iranian students on our cam-
pus have conducted themselves
with propriety whatever may be
their feelings. The rest of us can
do no less than that, whatever
may be our feelings. To speak out
on any issue and seek to persuade
is our right. To so conduct our-
selves as to provoke confron-
tation and violence is a distortion
of that right, and in the current
international crisis may well
produce jeopardy for the
hostages.
"We at the University have a
responsibility to provide for all
students an environment which is
free from harassment, and no
student should be subjected to
harassment or threat of physical
violence. Our basic commitment
to non-discrimination includes an
obligation to refrain from
discrimination on the basis of
national origin, race, sex,
citizenship, or religious or
political beliefs."

Gunmen, alleged Iranians, hold mosque

which Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini is a spiritual leader. The
Great Mosque houses the Kaaba shrine,
which houses the Black Stone, the most
sacred object to Islam.
State Department officials in
Washington said they had unconfirmed
reports the gunmen were Iranian
Shiites.
Telephone and telegraph com-
munications with Saudi Arabia were
severed at midday yesterday.
The Saudi delegation here, led by
Crown Prince Fahd, was not able to
confirm the report of the raid. But Fahd
was preparing to leave for home in
what appeared to be an emergency in
his country, the world's largest oil ex-
porter and the birthplace of Islam. A
Saudi spokesman in Tunis said Prince

delicate autonomy talks as some
American diplomats have predicted.
The Israeli government called for
Bassam al-Shka's deportation after it
was learned he sympathizes with tac-
tics of the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO). The Israeli
government's decision provoked 25
moderate mayors on the West Bank to
threaten to resign if the Israeli
Supreme Court affirms next week, the
Begin government's decision.
"I'm not seriously concerned with
those talks of resignation. I Chink

they're just bluffing, and there's no
danger with the talks," Dayan said.
THROUGHOUT his 45-minute ad-
dress, Dayan emphasized the theme
that terrorism is gaining strength
around the world. Pointing to the
Iranian takeover of the U~S. Embassy
in Tehran, the former cabinet member
said it symbolizes terrorism's elevation
as a viable diplomatic weapon in the
world.
He warned that this growing problem
would have to be dealt with forcibly by
the western nations and specifically the
United States.
