On November 14, the United States

U.S. banks have used the assets to of-

have prompted lawsuits over whether

By BETH PERSKY
Yesterday at 9 a.m. stream of Iranian
students began to flow in and out of the
Federal Building at Liberty and Fifth
Streets, reporting for their mandatory
interviews with agents from the federal
Immigration and Naturalization Ser-
vice (INS).
A few hours later, at noon, nearly 30
members of the Committee in
Solidarity with the Iranian People
began a peaceful protest in front of the
building in opposition to the treatment
of the Iranian students.
THE GROUP, which called for the
deportation of the deposed shah of Iran,
not Iranian students, was disrupted by
a group of onlookers who threw
snowballs at the protesters and chanted
such slogans as "Nuke Iran" and
"Nuke the Ayatollah."
"Everybody has a right to demon-
strate, but they shouldn't come out and
cause trouble," said LSA sophomore
Joel Schwartz, who led the chanting
and snowball throwing.
Inside the building, INS agents were
conducting the interviews, which one
Iranian student reported "took about
seven or eight minutes.'
HASSAN (not his real name) repor-
ted that the agent asked him if he had
been arrested in the U.S., and looked at
several documents, including his
passport, visa, and a letter stating that
he was a student in good standing at the
University, as well as a list of courses
indicating that he is currently enrolled
as a full-time student. He was asked to
fill out a form, he added, and then had
his picture taken.
INS investigator Gerald Grubbs,
although he is not personally conduc-
ting interviews, said that his team ex-
pects to talk to nearly all of the 200 to
250 Iranian students at the University

umui a mmim ts i nvestigation
Friday.
Grubbs said that the purpose of the
investigation is to "determine those
students who have violated the terms of
their status in the U.S.," and added that
the investigators are in Ann Arbor as a
convenience to the Iranian students and
the University.
"IF WE DIDN'T come to the U of M,
the Iranian students would have to go to
Detroit for the interviews," he said.
Earlier in the day, however, a Daily
reporter. was asked by an INS agent to
leave the building. He said that INS
didn't want the "appearance that they
have allowed media personnel to ham-
per the interview," and that INS didn't
want to convey the impression that the
students were being harassed.
Jon Heise, Director of the Univer-
sity's International Center, said at last
count "about 195" of the 210-215 Iranian
students who received a letter from him
informing them that they must be in-
terviewed by the INS had made appoin-
tments to be interviewed.
THOUGH THERE are 250 Iranians in
Ann Arbor, Heise added that not all
need to be interviewed because some
are permanent residents and others are
married to Americans.
INS Supervisory Investigator for the
state Robert Wagus said that inability
for an Iranian student to pay his or her
bills, a possible result of President Car-
ter's freezing of all Iranian assets,
would not be used as a cause for depor-
tation.
Wagus said there are several con-
ditions which would subject an Iranian
student to deportation: If the student
were not currently enrolled as a full-
time student; if the student were
staying in the country beyond the
period of time for which he or she were

autnorized to stay; it h or she were not
enrolled in the college or University in
which permission to attend was gran-
ted; or if the student were working
illegally.
IF THE STUDENT is not violating
any of the above conditions, his or her I-
94 form (visa) is stamped. If the
student violates one of those conditions,
though, the form is retained by the of-
ficer, which indicates either that the
student is deportable or that further in-
vestigation is required.
Wagus said, though, that INS will
have "no hard and fast statistics" until
after next Friday. He said INS Officials
will spend the week after next "deter-
mining each case - no one's going to be
found deportable on a blanket policy."
Even if a student is found to be depor-
table, he or she is entitled to a depor-
tation hearing, and, if it is proven the
student would be in danger if he or she
returned to Iran, the studdnt cannot be
deported.
Wagus said that even a student who is
found to be deportable can be restored
to valid status, especially if the student
is not carrying a full course of study.
The student could obtain a certificate
from the University explaining why he
or she is not currently carrying a full
credit load, and promising that he or
she would in the future.
No statistics were available yester-
day regarding the status of Iranian
students at Michigan, but out of 129 in-
terviewed Tuesday at Eastern
Michigan University, ten may face
immediate deportation, and 39 will
require further investigation. INS of-
ficers will continue to travel to state
universities and colleges until next
Friday,

tee meeting in support of a party endor-
sement of Hubbard.
Both Republicans and Democrats
said yesterday they did not think that as
a student Hubbard would draw more
students to the polls in the April elec-
tions.
"MAYBE, BECAUSE he is a student, .
students would care less about his party
label and vote for him," said Larry
Lichtman, who is former president of
the campus-based Michigan
Republican's club.
The issues in the April elections are
likely to be the same issues that have
emerged in recent city elections:
housing, streets, parking, and city ser-
vices.
Hubbard's opponent in April,
Democrat Susan Greenberg, said
yesterday the most important issue
facing city voters in April will be the
ongoing battle of how to hold down city
spending while still providing basic
services such as water and sewer ser-
vice and refuse collection.
ONE REPUBLICAN, former First
Ward Republican chairman, David
Foulke, critigizeo Greenberg's record
on council yesterday, saying that she
had failed to introducesnew legislation
during her two-year council term.
But Greenberg said that most recent
council action has been in the manner
of resolutions, which are instructions to
the City Administrator on how to spend
money.
Those resolutions are sponsored' by
the City Attorney or the City Ad-
ministrator, not council members.
A few weeks ago, when Hubbard was
considering running for council, he
called the City Clerk's office to find out
more about the duties of a member of
City Council.
The clerk handed the phone to
someone whom she thought would know
- Greenberg.
A second student, LSA junior Stacey
Stephanopoulos, is also running for
council in the Second Ward on the
Democratic slate. Stephanopoulos will
face Democratic incumbent Earl
Greene in a February primary which
will determine who will win the endor-
sement of the Democratic Party.

(Continued from Page 1)
PRESIDENT CARTER last week
disclosed that he intended to lift trade
sanctions against Zimbabwe Rhodesia
promptly after a British governor took
over in Salisbury.
Spokesmen for Patriotic Front
guerrilla leaders Joshua Nkomo and
Robert Mugabe stressed, however,
there "are hazards ahead in the process
of implementation."
Carrington told the House of Lords he
was sending a governor to Salisbury to
take control of the government pending
elections , and internationally
recognized independence. The moves
are aimed at ending a seven-year-old
war which has taken more than 20,000
lives.
BOTH SIDES - the Patriotic Front
and the current Salisbury government
- had previously accepted con-
stitutional plans, but the cease-fire
agreement came after hard
negotiations to thrash out and com-
promise on major points about security
and function of a Commonwealth

peacekeeping force through the elec-
tion period, expected by next spring.
Britain had tried several times to
bring peace to its breakaway colony,
and most believed this conference, now
in its 13th week, was to be the last try.
British authorities privately reported
the governor being sent to Salisbury
will be Lord Soames, 59-year-old son-in-
law of the late Sir Winston Churchill.
THE MAJOR elements of the com-
promise, as reported by Carrington,
were:
Size of the Commonwealth
peacekeeping force will number at
least 1,200 lightly armed troops with
provision for reinforcements if needed.
Britain originally wanted no more than
400.
* All "assembly points," accom-
modating Front guerrillas from san-
ctuaries in neighboring countries, will
be encircled by elements of the
peacekeeping forces. So, too, will those
bases where Salisbury's forces are
located.
* The peacekeepers also will

surround each of the country's five air-
fields, disarm all Salisbury's combat
planes and control bomb and arms
depots. This will help allay Front fears
their guerrillas might be, as Mugabe
put it, "massacred" in what he
described as concentration camps.
" All "external forces" will be
required to leave the country, a
reference to hundreds of South African
troops known to be stationed inside
Zimbabwe Rhodesia, although South
Africa denies it has forces there.
