Iran to begin
By AP and Reuter
TEHRAN, Iran-Iran will resume
oil exports very soon, Deputy Prime
Minister Ebrahim Yazdi said yester-
The loss of Iran's exports, which
peaked at about five millior, barrels a
day during the rule of Shah Mohammad
Reza Pahlavi, has thrown the world oil
market into chaos and sparked the
start of what could be a price spiral.
YAZDI TOLD reporters that oil
exports would be resumed "within a
matter of days."
Iran's wells have started producing
at the rate of about 700,000 barrels a day
for domestic use. Before strikes crip-
pled production last fall the United
States bought about 10 per cent of its
imported oil from Iran. Europe and
Japan also relied heavily on Iranian oil.
Under the shah, Iran also sold oil to
Israel and South Africa, but the new
government of Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini said that will be stopped.
However his government has promised
to resume sales to the United States
despite original strong American
backing for the shah. The United States

furt, West Germany en route to his
home in Lansda le, Pa., after being im-

Iranians" during last week's storming
of the U.S. Embassy by leftists. He was
slightly wounded in the attack, and was
releasedafter the United States, aided
by France, applied heavy pressure on
the new government.
In other developments, the Marxist
People's Fedayeen guerrillas prepared
for a Friday rally at Tehran University
to protest the direction Iran's Islamic
revolution has taken. It will be the first
open show of opposition to Khomeini
and is expected to indicate how strong
Marxist opposition is.
Less than two weeks ago the
Fedayeen forces fought and died
alongside devout Khomeini followers in
the last days of the revolution. Now
many claim they have been frozen out
of the new government.

IN THEIR presentation to the board,
the workers pointed out that the tran-
sfer of their job responsibilities to the
new department supervisors would
destroy the workers' commitment to
the store and result in lower produc-
tivity. They said this productivity is
directly enhanced by workers' par-
ticipation in the store decision-making
process, and the new plan would have
adverse effects on the store.
They also said these new positions
created a risk to the student discounts
now offered by the store. The workers
claim the increased salary outlays that
would result from this plan could be as
high as $96,000. Since the Cellar is a
non-profit organization, this loss of
revenue would result in a smaller
discount for the students.
A store employee also told the board
that the Inter-Cooperative Council had
gone on record in support of the IWW
local's actions as "being in the best in-
terest of the students." The employees
have also said the community support
in their favor has been strong.

made no overtly threatening gestures,
and yesterday the Kremlin heatedly
denied' its forces had been put on a
heightened alert status. U.S. officials in
Washington said they had no indication
of threatening Soviet movements on the
Chinese border.
IT APPEARED the Chinese were ac-
complishing one possible goal of their
invasion - easing Vietnamese military
pressure on the forces of the ousted pro-
Chinese government in Cambodia.
Intelligence sources in Bangkok said
30,000 of the estimated 100,000 Viet-
names troops in Cambodia were or-
dered to return to Vietnam. New
guerrilla offenses against the Viet-
namese were reported in Cambodia
The sources said Hanoi also was
calling home Vietnamese troops from
northern Laos to reinforce defenses in
the area of Lao Cai, a major com-
munications and railway center that
fell to the Chinese on Tuesday.
RADIO HANOI said 12,000 Chinese
troops had been killed in the first five
days of fighting. Analysts here consider
those claims inflated and say the Viet-
namese have suffered heavier
casualties than the Chinese. It has been
difficult to verify casualty figures.
The Hanoi broadcast, monitored in
Bangkok, also claimed that 140 Chinese
tanks, armored cars, and military
vehicles had been destroyed. The
Peking media have had few reports on
the war.
Information provided by Bangkok
sources and Western military sources
in Peking, quoted by Kyodo, indicated
that the new Chinese attacks in the nor-
theast were aimed at cutting off two
highways linking the Vietnamese-held,
front-line town of Lang Son with Hanoi
and the seacoast.
THE VIETNAMESE for the past few
days have been sending regular army
troops northward up Highway 1 to rein-
force militiamen in Lang Son, 80 miles
northeast of Hanoi and 12 miles south of
the border.
The sources said the Chinese beefed
up their forces dug in on hillsides
around the town of Dong Dang, seven
miles north of Lang Son and five miles
south of the border, and on Wednesday
opened a new assault, described by
Peking sources as the heaviest fighting
of the war thus far.

The Vietnamese were stubbornly
resisting the attack, the sources said.
AT THE SAME time 50 miles to the
east, three Chinese infantry divisions
led by heavy tanks struck from behind
the Chinese border and pushed 12 miles
deep into Vietnam's Quang Ninh
Province in the face of tough resistan-
ce, the sources said. The Chinese troops
were 12 miles north of the east-west
Highway 4, which links Lang Son with
the South China Sea coast.
This strike force, consisting of as
many as 30,000 men, was expected to
try to cut Highway 4 and then possibly
swing inland and cut Highway 1 south of
Lang Son, thereby isolating the Viet-
namese forces between two Chinese
The Chinese sent two divisions sup-
ported by tanks against the provincial
capital of Cao Bang, in the mountainous
central region of the border, Tass said
in a dispatch from Hanoi. But 'the
Bangkok sources said they believed this
was a diversionary maneuver as the
Chinese readied for an all-out attack on
the Dong Dang-Lang Son area.'
The Bangkok sources said the
Chinese used tactical air strikes again-
st Vietnamese positions Wednesday for
the first time in the conflict. Hanoi, ap-
parently wary of tackling the much
larger Chinese air force, did not send its
jets up to fight the Chinese warplanes.
High-altitude reconaissance airplanes,
possibly Soviet, were spotted again
yesterday high over the embattled bor-
der region. Two Soviet warships also
were reported continuing on a course
south toward the Vietnam area.
