State senate defeats

privacy amendment

LANSING (UPI)-The Senate yesterday
defeated a proposed amendment to the state
constitution guaranteeing the right to privacy-a
measure opponents said could change state laws
on abortion, homosexuality, and prostitution.
Senators voted 22-10 in favor of the resolution
to place the question on the November 1980
ballot, but failed to gain the 26 votes necessary
for approval.
A MOVE TO reconsider the vote is pending.
"We could be opening a real Pandora's box
here and doing more than we intend to," said
Sen. Stephen Monsma (D-Grand Rapids).
But Sen. Basil Brown, sponsor of the con-
stitutional amendment and a longtime backer of
"the right to be left alone," criticized his

colleagues for failing to take a strong position on
"WHAT ARE YOU afraid of? You know in
Montanata, which has a guaranteed privacy
right, they don't walk down the streets naked,"
the Highland Park Democrat said.
A move last year to place the proposal before
voters was approved overwhelmingly in the
Senate but died in the House.
Several lawmakers said, however, they
believed existing state and federal laws already
protect the right to privacy.
"IT SEEMS to me we are opening up the
possibility of certain changes in state law," said
Sen. Philip Arthurhultz (R-Whitehall).
Monsma said concern over privacy rights led

to the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing
'What are you afraid of? You
know in Montana, which has a
guaranteed privacy right, they
don't walk down the streets
naked.'-State Sen. Basil Brown,
sponsor of privacy amendment-
"The way to address this problem is not by ad-
ding on to the state constitution," he said.

OTHER LAWMAKERS said a constitutional
privacy right could endanger state laws restric-
ting homosexuality and prostitution.
In other matters, the Senate extensively
debated a bill designed to outlaw the practice of
racial steering by real estate agents.
THE MEASURE would make it illegal for
agents to show potential buyers only certain
properties based on their race, religion or
marital status. It would require state inspectors
to make periodic checks of agencies suspected of
racial steering.,
The upper chamber also approved, 21-12, a bill
requiring at least half of the workers on state
construction projects be Michigan residents. The
measure now faces House approval.

says Iran
From AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President Carter, formally laun-
ching his fight for another term in the White House,
said last night the crisis with Iran that has delayed his
campaign plans "may not be resolved easily or
Asserting that the Iranian situation claims "my
closest attention," the president said he "would have
preferred to postpone his announcement until another
time." But Carter said election laws in some states'
forced him to act now.
"THEREFORE," he said, "I declare that I am a
candidate for re-election as president of the United
States of America.''
Carter also asked fellow Democrats to renominate
Walter Mondale, "the most effective vice-president in
American history."

The president, who spoke for less than eight minutes
in the East Room and later appeared in a five-minute
paid political broadcast on CBS television, originally
had planned more festive announcement activities, but
the Iranian crisis changed that.
BEFORE EVENTS IN Iran intervened, the
president had intended to invite prominent supporters
from across the nation to the White House and to spend
the evening at a fund-raising gala at a Washington
hotel. Then he was going to embark on four days of
campaigning in six states from Maine to Texas.
Although the fund-raiser was on Carter's announced
schedule for the day, chief spokesman Jody Powell
said the president would not attend because he "simply
felt his presence there would not be appropriate under
the circumstances," a reference to the Iranian crisis.

crisis may not end soon

"As president, I have made some hard decisions, and
I expect to make more," Carter said.
"I have made some mistakes, and I have learned
from them. I have fought some bitter fights against
powerful special interests, and I expect to go on
leading the fight for the common good of our people.,
"I carry some scars and I carry them with pride. I
also carry the knowledge, strengthened by my ex-
perience in this office that the greatness of our nation
and the goodness of our people will prevail."
The president said his record since taking office
almost three years ago showed a United States at
peace, with his administration enhancing security, im-
proving social and economic justice and leading the
struggle for human rights\around the world.

U.S. hostages to face trial

Promoters ignored

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who
could overrule the sentence "if the
United States extradites the shah,"
Ghotbzadeh reportedly said.
PREVIOUSLY, Iransthreatened to
try the hostages on espionage charges
only if Carter stuck to his refusal to
send back the shah. It appeared yester-
day from Ghotbzadeh's remarks that
the ruling Revolutionary Council was
stepping up pressure by offering a
Khomeini "pardon" instead of no trial
in exchange for the shah's return.
Asked when a trial might take place,
Ghotbzadeh said, "I don't know," Le
Figaro reported.
For the first time Ghotbzadeh ac-
cused the three top U.S. diplomats in

"THUS ONCE they leave the
ministry compound, they will fall into
the hands of justice and I will then be
the first to demand they be arrested
and tried," Figaro quoted him as
saying. Last week he said the three
were "free to leave" Iran, but he later
reversed himself when the embassy
militants repudiated his remarks.
Pentagon officials said, meanwhile,
that a six-ship Navy force, led by the
aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk has
reached the Arabian Sea area, joining
another U.S. carrier force. This put the
ships, carrying more than 135 planes,
within reach of the entrance of the Per-
sian Gulf.
Also, Saudi Arabia's oil minister
walked out of a meeting of;Arab i
ministers yesterday to protest attempts
by Syria and Libya to introduce a
resolution of support for Iran in its
dispute with the United States, accor-
ding to some conference sources.
Kuwait Oil Minister Ali Khalifa Al-
Sabah, however, denied the reports of
disagreement at the conference and
Libyan Oil Minister Ezzedin Mabrouk
