Council members failed to agree last
night on procedures for a meeting on
the Iranian crisis, and a U.S.
spokesman said the meeting was likely
to be deferred until today.
The spokesman said the United
States insisted that the first order of
business be the release of 49 American
hostages being held in the U.S. Em-
bassy in Tehran, which Moslem
militants invaded on Nov. 4.
IARLIER IN the day, State Depar-
tment spokesman Hodding Carter said
any negotiations with Iran would be
ruled out until the hostages were im-
mediately released.
Carter also conceded there was no
way the U.S. could prevent Iran from
raising its grievances when the two
sides met during a U.N. Security Coun-
cil session.
"WHEN AND IF such a thing takes
place it will be a diplomatic conver-
sation," he said.
Iran's principal complaint is that the
deposed shah, Mohammed Reza
Pahlavi, was allowed to go to New York
for cancer treatment. The ad-
ministration defends the decision as
Iran asked that any debate in the 15-
nation council be deferred until next

our people."

several diplomats.
Invoking a U.N. Charter prerogative
used only once before - during the 1960
Congo crisis - Secretary-General Kurt
Waldheim last night drew the council's
attention to the U.S.-Iran dispute,
calling it a threat to the peace.
His move had been expected to
prompt full-scale debate, as delegates
were still undecided last night on how

best to deal with the issue.
MEANWHILE, IN Tehran, Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini raged against the
U.S. yesterday and told his followers all
Iranians must learn to handle weapons,
drop their divisive arguments and unite
with all their might against-America or
"we will disappear for good."
"An Islamic country ought to be

our nation possess, they must also be
equipped with materials and arms.. .

The Daily will print the list of faculty and
administrative salaries in a supplement as
soon as the data can be prepared for
publication. Despite the difficulties involved
in printing the thousands of salaries, it is
hoped the supplement will be ready before
winter vacation or soon after.
Tomorrow's Daily will contain an ex-
planation of the merit-based salary system
and the figures contained in the salary
disclosure report.

youths in a few years time, should have

of the salaries in order t.o comply with
state law. The statute became law Oct.
26 when it was signed by Lt. Gov.
James Brickley and requires all state
colleges to disclose staff and faculty
salary information by name. The
University had traditionally refused to
release such information, claiming it
constituted a violation of privacy.
The law also requires the University
to respond to written requests for the
information within five business days.
Assistant Director for Personnel Ed
Hayes said his office has already
responded to five such requests from

speakers at a teach-in on Iran last
night. The forum which was held in
Assembly Hall of the Michigan Union,
drew more than 100 spectators.
"Khomeini became the leader of the
revolution because of his ability to
bring together the different groups,"
said Ali Mihaxidoust. "What we must
bear in mind in order to-understand the
anti-Iranian propaganda is that a
major blow has been directed against
American imperialism in Iran."
The teach-in, which was organized by
the Committee to Support the
Revolution in Iran, attracted both sup-
porters of the revolution as well as ad-
vocates of U.S. military intervention.
THREE MEMBERS of the commit-
tee spoke first and then the floor was
opened to discussion. At the outset of
the discussion, speaker Ismeal Ahmed
laid down ground rules to avoid possible
injuries, he said.

Ahmed banned banners and signs as
well as effigy burning and asked that
there be no attacks on either members
of the committee or others in attendan-
Speakers from the committee ad-
vocated a policy of anti-imperialism
through non-domination of Iran's
culture, politics, and the economy by
other countries.
As a corollary of that policy, mem-
bers of the committee spoke out against
U.S. intervention in Iran. The third
point of their unity doctrine was the ex-
pression of their support for the

Iranians had broken international law
in seizing the 49 hostages currently

Mihaxidoust discounted international
law in his reply, saying, "International
law is not sacred to all people. It is
sacred to the colonial powers." He said,
"All laws are not good for all people.

calendar to accommodate 60 to 72 class days per term. He
said the calendar is usually made up two years in advance.
This term there'are 71 class days, but last fall term there

such as intercourse or genital stimulation - occurs bet-

their report stated. Furthermore, according to the resear-
