If Michigan had to lose the 1979 Rose Bowl, it might as
well have been to the number one team in the country. But
the questions after the game were, did Michigan really lose,
nd is Southern Cal really No. 1?
In the spirit of diplomacy, the answers are yes and no on

TEHRAN, Iran - Three of Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi's top har-
dline generals have resigned on the eve
of Iran's transition to civilian rule, well
informed diplomats said yesterday.
The report came as troops fired on
anti-shah demonstrators in Tehran and
Shiraz and airliners carrying foreign
and Iranian evacuees took off without
radar assistance from -Tehran's airport
where military experts substituted for
striking civilian controllers.
THE CARTER administration,
meanwhile, upset by a bloody anti-shah
demonstration by Iranian students in
California, promised yesterday to
deport any foreign student who takes
part in illegal violence in the U.S.
The warning was made by Attorney
General Griffin Bell one day after he
was instructed by Carter to review
possible steps the government might
The attorney general said he was
studying "our legal options" that could
lead to revocation of student visas for
the Iranians. "Any other visitor to our
country who is here to obtain an
education and resorts to violence con-
trary to the law should be on notice that
we will initiate appropriate legal
proceedings to see that their stay in the
United States is ended," he said.]
BELL'S STERN warning, Carter's
order, and complaints from Congress
members, were all prompted by an an-
ti-shah demonstration in Beverly Hills,
Calif., Tuesday, in which protestors
stormed the mansion where the shah's
sister and mothe are residing.

the bottom of an 18-foot deep pit in the

settlement and a statement of regret
brought an end yesterday to the long
and bitter legal battle waged by the vic-
tims of the Ohio National Guard bullets
fired at Kent State University in 1970.
"We got everything we wanted and
more," exulted lawyer Sanford Jay
Rosen of San Francisco, who represen-
ted nine people wounded at Kent and
the families of the four students killed.
THE SETTLEMENT was read into
the record in U.S. District Court, ending
a retrial of a five-year-old damage suit
stemming from the shootings.
It included a statement on behalf of
the defendants-Gov. James Rhodes
and 27 present and former National
Guard members-expressing regret
and saying that "the tragedy of May 4,
1970, should not have occurred," but
denying liability for the shootings.
The biggest part of the settlement,
$350,000, goes to Dean Kahler, now 28,

Back home in Shaker Heights, just outside of
Cleveland, sophomore Beth Warren could liven up
her vacation with an occasional 3.2 beer. But upon
returning to Ann Arbor she found this state's new 21-
year-old drinking age law in force, having been
upheld in federal court.
Unable to legally consume even the mildest form of
alcohol here in Michigan, Warren announced, "I'm

Many students have devised strategies for eluding
the law, from drinking in the privacy of their rooms
or cars to manufacturing fake I.D.s. The incentive for
violating the law is even greater in this city, since if
caught consuming alcohol, 18-20-year-olds will be
subject only to a $5 fine, under an ordinance adopted
by City Council and effected December 27.
The city law, patterned after the $5 marijuana
penalty, is only slightly less stringent than a recently
enacted $25 state penalty which the governor signed

parking ticket which can be paid through the mail.
Persons over 21 who buy liquor for their underaged
friends also will be given the $5 ticket.
The local ordinance specifically excludes 18-to-21-
year-old persons found with open cans or bottles int
cars, or with alcohol on high school grounds.
