John Dean wrote off his part in the
Watergate cover-up to "blind ambi-
tion" last night - while keeping an
occasionally hostile Hill Auditorium
audience chuckling with tales of the
Nixon White House.
"I've often thought to myself-that it
would have been helpful to have been
a criminal lawyer when I went into
the White House," Richard Nixon's
former counsel told the crowd of a
little over 2,000.
WHILE HE WAS speaking inside, a
group of four protesters from Min-
nie's Coop on N. State St. hung signs
outside the auditorium proclaiming
"Banana Cream John Dean." Dean
reacted by calling the sign "sweet."
During the question-answer period
following the speech, an object
appearing to be an orange was hurled
towards Dean, missing by a wide
margin. Dean merely turned to
glance at it and continued answering

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Shah of Iran disclosed last
night that his country will seek
a price freeze when the 13-na-

month in Venezuela to decide
whether to increase world oil
BECAUSE Iran wields consider-
able influence within the oil cartel,
the shah's announcement represent-
ed a victory for President Carter's
hopes for a price freeze.
Carter has said that any price
increase would be disruptive to world
economic stability and the shah said

past two days convinced him to
change his policy of neutrality in the

told interviewers that. Iran would re-

at the Caracas, Venezuela, meeting.
The shah said he would be willing
to support a 12-month freeze on
prices. The current world price of
oil is about $12.50 per barrel and most
other oil producing states rill seek a
Saudi Arabia, the world's leading
oil producer and the most powerful
member of the cartel, has said a

declining value of the dollar and in-
flation in western industrialized

an increase of about five per cent

favor a much larger hike. Iraq, for
example, is proposing a 23 per cent
The shah's news conference came
after his final meeting with President
Carter. Press Secretary Jody Powell
said the two leaders reviewed human
rights in Iran and other matters
during that visit. Powell declined to
say whether the President was satis-
fied with the human rights situation
Powell said that "it is safe to
assume that both leaders noted the
steps Iran has taken in support of this
ideal." The spokesman said that in
recent months, Iran has liberalized

ASSAD SKEPTICAL OF ISRAEL VISIT:
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) -President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt met with Syrian
President Hafez Assad yesterday, seek-
ing the backing of his skeptical ally for'
his proposed visit to Israel.
Informed diplomatic and Syrian
sources said they believed Sadat was
trying to allay Assad's fears he would
make private deals on the first-ever
visit of an Arab leader to Israel.
SADAT WAS LIKELY to tell Assad
.any trip to Israel is "meant to change
the Israeli mentality about Arab in-
tentions, and to show the world who is
serious about peace and who is not,"
one Arab diplomat said.
Despite the drama of the prospective
meeting' between the two opposing
Mideast leaders and the optimism it
stirred, serious obstacles remained to a
settlement in the region-even to a
bilateral understanding between Egypt
Key Arab demands for Israeli with-
drawal from all occupied territories
and creation of a Palestinian state, both
repeatedly rejected by the Israelis,
were reiterated by a Syrian spokesper-
son after Sadat and Assad had com-
pleted two rounds of talks.
THE SPOKESPERSON said the two
leaders agreed to "coordinate their ef-
forts for a just and lasting peace in the
