Shah selects new
council before trip
The Michigan Daily-Sunday, January 14, 1979-Page
(Continued from Page i)
A highly placed source loyal to the
shah said the monarch had met last
week with the country's top military
leaders who had offered to use the
nation's 430,000-man army to restore
his absolute monarchy.
The source, who refused to be iden-
tified, said the monarch emphatically
told the generals he would rather go
abroad than risk resumption of the
violence that already has cost more
than 1,500 lives in the past year. The
source gave no indication of how the
The shah's chief religious opponent,
Paris-exiled Moslem leader Ayatullah
Khomaini; claimed yesterday that the
monarch's supporters were still ac-
tively plotting a coup. Khomaini has
formed what an aide described as an
"Islamic Council of Revolution" to
prepare for a provisional government.
Meanwhile, Bakhtiar went before the
60-member Senate, the upper house of
Parliament, to seek a vote of confiden-
ce for his new civilian government.
Bakhtiar repeated the pledge he
made last Thursday before the 268-
member lower house to cut off Iranian
oil supplies to Israel and South Africa,
dissolve SAVAK, the shah's hated
secret police, release political
prisoners, fire unneeded foreign
workers and closely cooperate with the
country's Moslem leaders.
The two houses were expected to vote

go abroad on his leave of absence, court
Ardeshir Zahedi, Iran's ambassador
to the United States and a close con-
fident of the shah, was reported to have
left Tehran to return to Washington.
There was speculation that Zahedi
would be making security arrangemen-
ts for the shah to sit out the crisis and
undergo medical treatment in the
In Paris, a Khomaini aide said his
revolutionary council already had
begun its work to prepare for a
provisional government. The aide said
the council would set up an Islamic
republic by organizing a new assembly
chosen through free elections.
But a spokesman for National Front
leader Karim Sanjaby, who heads the
country's political opposition, said he
knew nothing about the formation of a
The 78-year-old Khomaini denounced
the regency council and renewed his
call for his supporters to continue their
strikes and demonstrations against the
"illegal" Bakhtiar government appoin-
ted by the shah.
A similar message was read to the
throngs at Tehran Univesity rally,
where demonstrators roared Moslem
chants and cheered Tehran's chief
Moslem leader, Ayatullah Taleghani.
Iran radio reported that peaceful an-
ti-shah demonstrations took place in
three other cities, including Shiraz 275
miles south of Tehran, where six per-
sons died in demonstrations last week.
The only violent clashes occurred in the
Caspian city of Rasht, 150 miles north-
west of the capital, the radio said.
There were no reports of casualties.

Pharmacy student Alison Wolfson, along with Professor Norman Lacina, tests
the precision of a syringe as part of a study judging the accuracy of devices
such as teaspoons with which liquid medicines are administered.
D sa e nt ap ostoo big or too small?
By MARY FARANSKI
A simple kitchen utensil - the
teaspoon - is the subject of a study
being conducted by a group of Univer-
sity Pharmacy professors and students.
The group suspects that teaspoons and
other devices used to administer liquid
medicines are often too big or too small
to give the dosage required.
The group plans to present its fin-
dings to the Michigan Pharmacists'
Association in late February in a paper.
THE PHARMACY School's Dr. Nor-
man Lacina is the project's coor-
dinator. "Shortly after I came here in
1975, the American Academy of
Pediatrics published a paper
suggesting that doctors and phar-
macies give out accurate measuring
devices with their liquid medicines," he
Liquids are given mostly to children,
who are unable to swallow pills.
While most medications cause no
complications when administered in
slightly inaccurate doses, there is a
problem in that a patient may run out of
medicine before he or she is supposed
to, resulting in extra expense.
Part of the study, conducted by fifth-
year pharmacy student Alison Wolfson,
examines the precision of different
devices used to dispense medicine, such
as spoons, oral syringes, medicine cup-
s, and test tube teaspoons. Some
these devices have been found to
"We are hoping that pharmacies that
don't distribute measuring devices with
their medications will do so, and those
that are distributing them will re-
evaluate whether they are accurate
enough," Wolfson said.
It has been discovered that most
patients, when given a measuring
device by a pharmacy, will use it.
The group is asking patrons of the
Maple Village Pharmacy to bring in
teaspoons for measurement. They hope
to measure about 50 spoons. Pharmacy
student Rich Grossman is supervising
this part of the study, with the help of
other students employed at the phar-
Maple Village Pharmacy became in-
terested in the project after a woman
was given a test tube spoon with her
child's medicine. The woman returned
for more medicine before the prescrip-
tion should have run out.

troops in the area had been on alert,

Statements issued in Damascus,
Syria, indicated the guerrillas were
from the Marxist Democratic Front for
the Liberation of Palestine, and that
they had planned to take hostages,
demand freedom for 10 Palestinian
prisoners and fly to freedom.
The operation was named in honor of
the late Algerian president, Houari
Boumedienne. A spokesman for the
front claimed six Israeli soldiers were
killed in the raid, and he said it was
successful because it proved the
vulnerability of Israeli defenses.
The front was responsible for the May
15, 1974 raid on a school in Maalot in
which 95 pupils were taken hostage.
Twenty-eight Israelis and the three
terrorists died in the assault that freed

Israel has retaliated for such attacks
in the past by bombing Palestinian

On Dec. 20, Israeli warplanes bombed
three Palestinian targets in southern
Lebanon after a six-week terror cam-
paign in which four Israelis were killed
and 67 wounded.
Front statements in Damascus
claimed the guerrillas fought off heavy
Israeli attacks by helicopter-borne
troops and tanks, but Israeli authorities
said the incident lasted less than an
