Treasurer's Report: "Mr. President it is with great
pride and enthusiasm that I report that from our last
fund raising activity we raised a total of $250. It is,
however, with great disappointment that 1 report
that the activity cost us $249. This leaves us with a
GRAND TOTAL of $1.00 left in our account. The
question I ask you is 'Where can we learn how to
do it right?"'

"I CAN'T see why the occupation of
the embassy is such a big deal, when we
occupied the whole country," added
Ahmed. "The main question is what the
hell are we doing in Iran? There's a lot
of rhetoric but very little factual
presentation concerning Iran."
Mihaxidoust called for the release of
the prisoners in his speech as well as an
end to marshall law and the U.S. oc-
cupation. "The revolution in Iran is far
from ended," he said. "The struggle
will continue until there is a gover-
nment that will serve the needs of the
masses of people."
"We're a group of Iranians and
Americans," Ahmed said, describing
his group. "When the revolution came
in February, we felt it was important
that the American. people know what
was going on in Iran because it would
affect them in their daily lives. We've
been borne out in that prediction."
Other activities of the group's Detroit
chapter, he said, include teach-ins at
Henry Ford Community College and
debates at Wayne State University.
"We want to put out the patriotic fires,"
one committee member said, "that
have been spreading in the Detroit
area.

Tehran's Mehrabad Airport and "ac-
cording to evidence uncovered this man
has links with the CIA." It identified the
American as Max Copeland, an em-
ployee of the Tehran office of Elec-
tronic Industries, but gave no home
town or date of his arrest.
It was believed to be the first deten-
tion of an American since the seizure of
the embassy on Nov. 4. A U.S. official
in Washington said last week it was
believed there were some 50 U.S.
citizens still in Iran, not counting the
hostages and journalists.
Religious fervor heightened as
Moslem leaders called for demon-
strations and again alleged U.S.
responsibility for the invasion of the
Grand Mosque, Islam's holiest shrine in
Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
THOUSANDS gathered in an unusual
night demonstration outside the oc-
cupied embassy, listening attentively to
speeches then, on cue, bursting into
deafening chants denouncing the U.S.
government. Many wore white mour-
ning shrouds signifying their readiness
to die for Islam. "Death to Carter,
death to the Shah," they shouted.
The Saudi information minister said
yesterday that soldiers have the last of
the Moslem fanatics who occupied the
Grand Mosque cornered in its
basement.
Government forces held off a final
assault in order to catch the holdouts
alive and prevent further damage to the
mosque, Islam's holiest place,
Mohammed Abdo Yamani said in a
/statement broadcast by Riyadh radio.
HE SAID THE upper floors of the
huge edifice and its seven steeples were
in complete control of security forces.
Yamani did not say how many
diehards still were in the basement
tunnels.
Diplomats identified the insurgents
as members of the ultra-conservative

Oteiba tribe from southern Saudi
Arabia, who were one of the groups the
ruling Saud family defeated in
establishing the kingdom in the 1920s.
THEIR LEADER, called
"Johaiman," proclaimed himself the
Mahdi, the Messiah figure whose return
was prophesied by Mohammed.
Johaiman demanded the government
abolish radio, television and soccer anO
prohibit women fromi holding jobs is
business. The latter prohibition already
is generally observed in Saudi Arabia,
where women also cannot drive cars.
Saudi officials have promised harsh
justice for the attackers, and
newspapers throughout the Islamic
world have called for imposition of the
death penalty for what they called a
sacrilege.
IN WASHINGTON, the State Depar-
tment announced yesterday that
dependents and "non-essential person-
nel" at 10 embassies in the Islamic
world would be given a chance to come
home.
Department officials said the "volun-
tary drawdown" was caused by the
recent unrest in the area and the threat
it posed to American personnel.
They said the program was not an
evacuation and that all American em-
bassies would remain open and fun-
ctioning. There was no estimate of how
many people would come home.
THE DEPARTMENT said it would
not charter airplanes for the depar-
tures, but would use regular commer-
cial flights. Private Americans in the
area will also be advised of the
program, they said.
The State Department refused to
name the 10 countries for fear of setting
off further demonstrations, but officials
said Turkey, Jordan and North Yemen
would be among the countries most af-
fected. In addition to the 10 countries,
dependents and non-essential personnel
have already been withdrawn from
Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran.
An official defined "non-essential
personnel" as people "whose jobs we
can do without for a little while in light
of events." Dependents include the
families of all embassy employees.
THREE YOUNG American women
living in Tehran have endorsed the oc-
cupation of the U.S. Embassy and say
that the American hostages should be
tried as spies.
