Women
athletes
to decline
new funds
By LORENZO BENET
Although women athletes at the
University may be entitled to an ad-
ditional $64,000 in scholarship funds,
they will not take them, according to
the director of the women's athletics
department.
The additional funds would become
available as a result of a revision to
federal Title IX guidelines, which ban
sex discrimination in federally-
supported education programs.
DEPARTMENT OF Health,
Education, and Welfare (HEW)
Secretary Patricia Harris announced
the revision Monday, which rules that
actual expenditures for male and
female athletes do not have to be equal,
but that scholarship funds must be
allocated in the same proportions as
there are male to female athletes.
Since one-third of the University's
athletes are women, they are entitled to
one-third of the scholarship funds, or
$264,000 of the $800,000 scholarship
budget.
But according to Phyllis Ocker,
director of the University's women's
athletic department, their scholarship
funds were only $150,000 this year, and
she is expecting only $200,000 next
year; $64,000 less than mandated under
the new guidelines.
Any college or university which does
not comply with the guidelines may be
subject to the loss of all of its federal
assistance.
JOHN BLAMPHIN, an HEW
spokesman in Washington, said the
women's athletic program must have
access to the funds, but may refuse
some of the money, which can then go
back into the general scholarship funds.
Ocker said her department might fall
into the category above. "If these funds
are available to us, we would not use
them because we do not have enough
quality athletes to distribute them to,"
she explained. "Our scholarship
criterion is based on athletic ability,
and we are not interested in giving
money away to every athlete in the
program.'
Ocker said that the department has
received gradual increases in scholar-
ship funds over the past few years and'
that she expected the trend to continue,
despite the fact that last year the
program did not use all of its funds.
UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC Director
Don Canham said he thought the new
ruling was reasonable and that it will\

ATOM EMERSON, THE instructor of the UAC sponsored Bartending course, points to a glass of colored water that
student Julie Nevins mixed incorrectly. The students were required to mix 12 mock drinks in eight minutes as a part
of their final exam.

By BONNIE JURAN
George Majoros, who was mixing drinks at the
Michigan Union Tuesday night, looked intent as he
carefully measured from the bottles marked "creme de
cacao," "cream de menthe," and cream into his shaker.
He shook it forcefully, then carefully poured the finished
Grasshopper into a glass, placed it on the bar, and tur-
ned in his next order.
Majors, who had several more drinks to mix quickly,
was nevertheless more concerned than m6st with
making them accurately. He had to be concerned. He
was being tested.
TESTED? THAT'S right. Majors, who moonlights as
an LSA freshman, was taking part in the culmination of

a four-week mini-course in bartending, offered by the
University Activities Center (UAC).
Twenty-eight students who completed the course,
taught by LSA senior Atom Emerson, were given their
final exams this week, 14 on Monday and 14 on Tuesday.
After completing a written test on different types of
alcohol, the students' knowledge as well as ability was
tested by having to correctly mix twelve different drinks
in eight minutes.
THE 15 STUDENTS who, in addition to completing the
$10 course, also managed to pass both tests, were awar-
ded certificates stating that they were now
"Professional Qualified Mixologists."
Instructor Emerson admitted that the certificates

Militants occupying the U.S. Em-
bassy in Tehran, Iran rejected as "wor-
thless" yesterday the Security Council
resolution demanding release of their
50 American hostages, but government
radio said the United Nations action left
open the door to negotiation.
In Washington, President Carter told
a group of congressmen last night that
he will "turn the screws a little tighter"
on Iran every few days, participants
said.
The president outlined a series of
economic and diplomatic steps which
he is prepared to initiate in coming
days if the 50 American hostages in
Tehran are not released, the
congressmen said.
Among the options open to him is a
complete cutoff of U.S. food shipments
to Iran.
Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas,
the deposed shah of Iran will not seek
asylum in four of the countries most of-
ten mentioned as possible sanctuaries,
his spokesman said yesterday.
The shah doesn't want to go to Egypt
because he might inflame the Mideast
situation, said Robert Armao, who also
ruled out Panama, the Bahamas and
South Africa as sanctuaries.
Armao said Mohammad Reza
Pahlavi, accused by the present
Iranian government of crimes against
his former subjects, will not answer his
accusers while efforts are being made
to win release of U.S. hostages in Iran.
Vice President Walter Mondale in
Washington yesterday accused Iran of
dragging international law and
civilized behavior into the dirt by its
treatment of the Americans held
hostage in the U.S. Embassy in Tehran
for more than a month.
Demanding the immediate release of
the captives, Mondale said the
American people would never accept
Iran's "propaganda" attempts to make
the deposed shah of Iran's alleged
crimes the only issue in the crisis.
Mondale's statement to reporters at
the White House signaled an intensified
campaign by Carter to put pressure on
Iran and to rally world opinion in his ef-
forts to protect the hostages and obtain
their release.
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance said

yesterday the American hostages. in
Tehran are being held under
"inhuman" conditions. He demanded
that Iran permit doctors and neutral
observers to check their condition and
to make certain none has been injured
or killed.

From Reuter and AP
LONDON - Britain yesterday an-
nounced that the three-month-old Zim-
babwe Rhodesia peace talks here had
reached agreement with only a few
ceasefire details to be hammered out.
"This is the breakthrough for which
we have all been working," British
Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, the
conference chairman, told reporters:
The United States yesterday
welcomed news that allsparties to the
Zimbabwe-Rhodesia 'dispute had
agreed on cease-fire arrangements,
opening the way to settlement of the 14-
year-old independence dispute.
"THE HISTORIC accomplishments
of the Lancaster House negotiations
reflect great credit on all of the par-
ticipants, who have displayed a serious-
ness of purpose and a willingness to
compromise in the interest of ending
the bloodshed," the State Department
said.
"Although a few issues remain to be
dealt with in detail, the United States is
confident that a settlement is near.
The United States has cooperated
with Britain for nearly two years in ef-
forts to promote an Anglo-American
plan for a legal settlement of the
Rhodesia dispute.

WILL RUN FOR FIRST WARD SEAT:
Student aims for Council

By JOHN GOYER
Donald Hubbard, an LSA junior
majoring in political science, is expec-
ted to announce his candidacy today as
a Republican for a 'City Council seat in
the First Ward.
Hubbard will face incumbent
Democrat Susan Greenberg in the April
Seventh city elections in a ward that
has trditionally voted Democratic and
which includes a large number of
students.
HUBBARD yesterday confirmed that
he would announce today, but declined
to discuss campaign issues until after
the announcement.
He will make his bid for a council seat
formal this afternoon at a press con-
ference in the City Hlall offices of Mayor
Louis Belcher, who reportedly will en-

dorse Hubbard.
While Hubbard has the support of the
City's Republican organization, Wen-
dell Allen, who served from 1976 to 1978,
was the only Republican from the First
Ward to win a seat since 1961.
REPUBLICAN Council candidates
generally have fared poorly in two of
the city's five wards - the First and the
Second - while often winning seats in
the other three wards. Those wards
have the largest student population.
Following this pattern, the twen-
member Council, with two members
from each ward, is made up of four
Democrats and six Republicans.
Belcher also has a vote on Council,
forming a clear Republican majority.
Until recently, the Republican
organization in the First Ward has been

short on volunteers to do the legwork -
door-to-door canvassing and voter
registration -- which can win a city
election.
BUT THAT may have changed. The
Republican City Committee earlier this
fall named University junior David
Jaye, who is managing Hubbard's
council campaign, as Republican First
Ward chairman.
City Republicans yesterday credited
Jaye with building a First Ward
Republican organization of mostly
students, half a dozen of whom showed
up at the last Republican City Commit-

Israel frees jailed Palestinian
Wu

mayor or i
NABLUS, Occupied West Bank (AP)
- Under strong international pressure,
Israel yesterday reversed a decision to
deport Bassam Shakaa, the fiery
Palestinian mayor of the largest town
in the West Bank of the Jordan River.
Several thousand people turned out to
witness Shakaa's triumphal return to
Nablus from a prison cell outside Tel
Aviv, welcoming him with Arabic chan-
ts, honking horns and showering him
with rose petals.
SHAKAA, 48,'HAD been held 25 days
while he waged a legal battle against
the government's expulsion order.
Coming home, he said he was "very,
very happy" to be free and would be
mayor "today, from now on."
The West Bank military governor,
not the Israeli government, announced
the reversal in Shakaa's case, and no
high government officials were
available to explain the about-face on
the issue.

The decision to deport the Palestinian
nationalist mayor was made by Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's Cabinet
after Shakaa was quoted as identifying
himself with the Palestinian terrorists
who staged the 1978 coastal road
massacre in which 34 Israelis died. He
said his words were "twisted."

"The Zionist military authorities
have finally submitted to the will of the
struggling Palestinian people both in-
side and outside the occupied
territories," the statement said.

suspected in
bomb threat
at Fed. Bldg.
By TIMOTHY YAGLE
About 200 persons were evacuated from Ann Arbor's
Federal Building early yesterday morning after,
security officials were told a bomb was in the bulding.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny said the Yp-
silanti Michigan State Police post received a call shor-
tly after 9:30 a.m. Krasny then notified security of-
ficials to empty the entire building, which is located at
Fifth and Liberty Aves. Police did not say whether or
not they found a bomb or whether it exploded.
The bomb threat came when agents from the Im-
migration and Naturalization Service were inter-
viewing local Iranian students about their visas.
Krasny suspected the threat was connected to the anti-
Iranian demonstration on the Diag and the students in
the building.
A security guard at the Federal Building said all of
the roughly 200 people were outside the building only
for a short time.

"Why don't you do something about government?" Belluso
