Meanwhile in Washington, the United
States said yesterday it is moving
toward a stable relationship with Iran's
new rulers and signaled it sees no
political future for the shah.
Aodding Carter said President Carter's
offer Monday to cooperate with the new
government headed by Bazargan was
received well in Tehran and the U.S.
Ambassador, William Sullivan, expec-
ted to call on members of his cabinet.

"The President indicated he intends
to cooperate fully. I have reason to
believe that statement was well-
received in Tehran by those who
represent the new government," he
"We are in touch at various
levels ... We are moving along toward
a stable relationship," he said.
U.S. OFFICIALS said Washington
had not yet formally told Bazargan that
it recognizes his government as the
successor to that of Bakhtiar, appointed
prime minister, by the Shah before he
left on an indefinite vacation last mon-

Such notice would be the final formal
step toward maintaining diplomatic
relations, but Carter's statement of
willingness to cooperate may serve the
same end, officials said.

ducting a particularly intensive cam-

tivities as "low key," with expenditures
of "several hundred dollars" largely
due to mailings and a few adver-

Curry's campaign is based on "per-

Curry says "it is rough going against

said that it is unlikely that any

the former city councilperson who
represented the Fifth Ward from 1964-
70, is making his seventh run for council
after losing last year's election for the
Fourth Ward seat by a mere 58 votes to
Republican David Fisher. But Cap-
paert said that he doesn't think a great
deal about the "win or lose thing. I just
work like hell." t
And since past races in the Fourth
Ward have traditionally been quite
close, if Cappaert is successful on
February 19, he may have to build up a

confident of his chances in the coming

primary and his ability to represent the
Fourth Ward. Running in a diversified
ward consisting of students, professors,
wealthy business people and public
housing residents, Cappaert is focusing
his campaign on the "general area of
ethics in government."
"I think that it is essential to bring
out the talent and ability of everyone
who lives in the city," said Cappaert,
who explained that broad attitudes in
government are themselves an issue.
Cappaert is also emphasizing a num-
ber of specific issues. One current isue
that particularly concerns Cappaert, is
the problem of a landfill. "I call it a
garbage dump," said Cappaert, "and it
is a real problem. Most people want it

CAPPAERT SAID that recycling ef-

are stepsin the right direction.
The junior high! principal is also
placing emphasis on the broad area of
traffic safety. "If 'the city were more
honest, the 'Don't Walk' signs would be
changed to 'run like hell.' We're afraid
to slow down traffic," Cappaert said.
Cappaert, however, has a solution.
He plans to personally go out and time
the traffic lights. "With the facts to
support me, I will insist that changes be
made," he said.
