LONDON (AP) - The British
Cabinet issued a special order last night
authorizing appointment of a governor
to rule Zimbabwe Rhodesia with full
legislative and executive powers.
The action came hours after Foreign
Secretary Lord Carrington said Britain
would go ahead with plans to establish a
new government in that breakaway
African colony with or without an
agreement from the Patriotic Front
ALSO, SENATORS seeking an im-
mediate lifting of economic sanctions
against Zimbabwe Rhodesia gave their
approval yesterday to a compromise
that would retain the trade embargo
while the African nation moves to
create a black majority government.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), the
Senate's most vocal advocate of ending
the sanctions, joined in. the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee's 10-0
vote for the compromise.
It is based on a promise by President
Carter to lift the embargo under certain
conditions and to provide the Senate a
chance to override him and end the
sanctions even if those conditions are

Vote counting began yesterday in a
national referendum that will turn Iran
into a strict Islamic state, and some
voters marked ballots with their own
blood, the Islamic clerical newspaper
Jomhouri Islami reported.
DIPLOMATIC sources said the fate
of the hostages would not be decided by
Khomeini or the militants until the
results of the referendum are announ-
ced at the end of the week.
An overwhelmingly positive result
for Khomeini, the sources said, could
help create a favorable climate for the
eventual peaceful release of the
hostages and defuse the crisis.
However, the sources said this hopeful
scenario was speculative.

Members of the Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma sorority had to scramble for alter-
native sleeping quarters late Sunday
night after receiving an anonymous
claim that a bomb had been planted in
their chapter house.
Ann Arbor police were summoned to
the sorority, located at 1204 Hill St., just
before 1:00 a.m. yesterday. After sear-
ching the lower two floors for ex-
plosives and finding none, the four of-
ficers reportedly "suggested" that the
64 residents leave the house, although a
formal evacuation was not ordered.
AFTER DISCUSSING their plight,
according to house members, all
decided to spend the night elsewhere.
By 1:30 a.m., the Kappa Kappa Gamma
house was empty, as residents found
accommodations in nearby sororities,
fraternities and apartments.

having evacuated the chapter house after receiving a bomb threat.

Bryant said he didn't know what was causing the distur-

med a "hairy eyeball" to quiet the offenders. Later, when
the bat swooped a bit too close for comfort, the audience
members began to shriek in fright. Finally, one brave soul
managed to throw his coat over the screeching rodent and
another captured it with-a pillow sheet she just happened to
have in her purse, and let it go outside. "Unfortunately, the

your grades have been going down, it may be due to
psychological causes. A new program sponsored by the
University School of Education can help you find out exac-
tly what the problem is. From now until the end of winter
term in April, the "Learning Evaluation Clinic" will per-
form psychological tests for people who have questions
about their ability in school-related functions. "If people
feel like they are not learning as fast as their peers, they
can come to us," said Amy Swan, a clinic employee. Swan-
said the clinic offers a personal conference, an attempt to
identify the student's problems, and recommendations for
improvement from the examiners. Students who have yet
to be subjected to collegiate rigors also will be involved.
Swan stressed that the program is also for children.

cheer with family and friends, personalized Christmas car-
ds and visits to the sick and elderly. Charles Langham,
SCROOGE's founder, said, "The only thing I'm against is
all these asinine gifts that have gotten out of hand."
Langham was inspired to form SCROOGE after he and his
wife ran up a Christmas gift bill of almost $600 three years
ago. Langham said one of SCROOGE's principles is to
recognize that "a 'Merry Christmas' can't be bought." O
