Sycor, Inc. and its maintenance
supervisor were charged yesterday
with illegally disposing of 45 barrels of
liquid chemical waste in a western
Washtenaw County township, accor-
ding to the Ann Arbor Police Depar-
tment and County Prosecutor William
Sycor maintenance supervisor Marve
Sharpenburg, who was unavailable for
comment yesterday, allegedly released
the waste to an unidentified Sharon
Township resident, who then reportedly
umped the 45 steel'barrels of organic
hemical waste in the township, which
about 15 niles west of Ann Arbor.
SYCOR, A computer terminal
manufacturer in Ann Arbor, is the
city's largest private organization. The
corporation recently announced it may
lay off 600 workers as it converts from a
manufacturing plant to a center for
research, field service, and data center
According to Delhey, the waste,
which is still in the barrels, "doesn't
cause any immediate hazard to nearby
residents," but wasn't disposed of
properly. He added that the barrels
were "probably up to the Department
of Natural Resources (DNR) to dispose
Delhey said the 53-gallon barrels con-
tained several different types of
chemicals, and proper disposal could
include such methods as incineration.
THE CRIMINAL investigative unit of
the DNR's Environmental Enfor-
cement Division, which conducted the
investigation, claims the offense oc-
curred around Aug. 31, 1979.
When contacted for comment, Sycor
spokesperson Jerry Handin would only
say that the company is "in the process
of examining not only the charges but
the facts surrounding those charges,'
and as of yet had not taken a stand in
The pre-trial is set for Feb. 28 and the
defendants will face a penalty of $500

More than 500 gather on Diag
By JOYCE FRIEDEN, MITCH STUART,
and GREGG WOLPER
In the University's largest rally in several years, more than 500 people braved
the frigid weather yesterday on the Diag to protest draft registration by chanting
anti-war slogans and carrying signs.
The noon rally, sponsored by Public Interest Research Group in Michigan'
(PIRGIM) and the Washtenaw Committee Against Registration and the Draft
(CARD), was in response to President Carter's recent announcement of his inten-
tion to reinstate draft registration.
JOE VOLK FROM the local chapter of the American Friends Service Commit-
tee spoke at the rally and criticized Carter's attitude as well as his foreign policy.
"He (Carter) said we should be prepared to decide that war is thinkable. War is not
thinkable, war is not necessary."
Volk continued, "If the answer to any policy question is war, they are asking
the wrong question."
Volk opposed what he called "thie
spirit of the bayonet. It is to kill. The
spirit of the American people is not the
spirit of the bayonet and is not the spirit
to kill, but is the spirit of the dove," he
TOM SCHOMAKER, a spokesman for
the Wesley Foundation, said "If you're
an objector I think the most conscien-
tious thing you can do is to stop the
draft by stopping registration."
Schomaker said the crowd should be
continually concerned about objection.
"If you're a real conscientious objector,
you'll support objection all the time and
not just when your ass is in the frying
pan. You must clarify your thoughts
now. When the draft comes there isn't
too much time to think," he added.
"If the world goes to hell, friends, you
go with it," Schomaker warned. "We
. .must convince Washington that there is
strong support to say no to the myth
that we need registration," he said.

TWO GENERATIONS united on the Diag yesterday to voice protest against
draft registration. Over 500 demonstrators defied the cold to shout slogans
such as "I won't kill for Capitol Hill" at the PIRGIM-sponsored rally.

blames policy decision
for Ianian hostiles
The United States failed to cultivate
Ayatollah Khomeini as an ally before
the Iranian revolution last January due
to a policy decision in the White House,
and not a lack of intelligence on Iran,
William Sullivan, former U.S. am-
bassador to Iran said yesterday.
Sullivan, who will speak on campus
Feb. 12, said in a telephone interview
from New York City yesterday, the U.S.
embassy in Tehran informed the White
House of the growing turmoil in Iran in
1978 from day to day.
HE ALSO* SAID the Central In-
telligence Agency (CIA) told the White
House of the approaching Iranian
Sullivan was a career diplomat with
35 years of experience before his
retirement in June. He served as am-
bassador to Iran from June, 1977 to
In spite of Sullivan and the State
Department's advice to establish
relations with the Ayatollah, President
Carter chose not to act on this advice
and establish relations with Khomeini,
who was in exile in France before the
"QUITE CANDIDLY, in the White
House, they did not want to hear that
the Shah was going to go," Sullivan
said, so the president vetoed attempts
by the State Department to work with
Khomeini before the Shah's ouster.
Sullivan sail the president received
conflicting advice on Iran from the
State Department and his National
Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
"Basically it was Brzezinski who
thought that some heroics could save
the Shah," Sullivan commented.
AS A RESULT of the decision not to
establish relations with Ayatollah
Khomeini before the Shah's downfall,
Sullivan said Khomeini and the Iranian
governement believed the U.S. was
Admitting the Shah to the United
States for medical treatment in October
intensified Iranians' hostility to the
U.S. government, Sullivan added.

RIVALRY REACHES INTO STATE FUNDS:
Milliken favors,'U', MSU Say
By JULIE ENGEBRECHT
The age-old rivalry between the University of Michigan
and Michigan State University (MSU) at times extends
beyond the athletic field, and this year the two appear to be
vying particularly hard for greater monetary recognition
from the state.
Several state legislators and MSU trustees and ad-
ministrators have charged Gov. William Milliken with
slighting MSU in favor of the University of Michigan through
his budget recommendation for fiscal year 1981.
LAST YEAR, the governor suggested a 9.5 per. cent hike
over this year's $146 million appropriation for the University
of Michigan, and an 8.5 per cent increase for MSU.
As Gerald Miller, director of the state's Department of
Management and Budget, unveiled Milliken's plan before the
legislature's appropri~tions committee last week, Rep.
Morris Hood (D-Detroit) questioned the fairness of the fun-
ding formula used to give the University of Michigan a higher
recommendation than any of the 12 remaining state-
supported colleges and universities. The average hike for all
the state's institutions of higher education is 8.4 per cent.
Miller answered Hood and said, "The governor feels that
the University of Michigan is the flagship institution of this
state. He feels that it is the major leading institution in
AND THAT FEELING is apparently at the center of the
complaints from MSU supporters. According to State Rep.
Gary Owen (D-Ypsilanti), MSU officials take issue with Jhe
governor placing the University of Michigan on a higher
level than MSU.

Iranian government and militants
disagree on effects of hostage escape
From United Press International
Irjan's Foreign Minister Sadegh
Ghotbzadeh angrily warned yesterday
that Canada "will pay" for smuggling
Americans out of Iran and hinted at
retribution on the American hostages.
But the militants at the U.S. Embassy
blamed Ghotbzadeh, not their captives.
A spokesman for the militants was
quoted by the official Cuban press
agency Prensa Latina as saying the
escape of the six Americans vill not af-
fect their treatment of the embassy
The spokesman also criticized the
Iranian foreign ministry for not
keeping count of the American
diplomats in Tehran, in order to
1oto prevent such an escape.
The clash was the latest sign of
discord between the militants and
government officials. Earlier this
week, President-elect Abolhassan Bani-
Sadr warned the militants they could
not be a separate "government."
Ghotbzadeh called the rescue of the
six Americans, hidden by Canada since
the seizure of the U.S. Embassy Nov. 4
and whisked out of the country with
forged Canadian documents, a
"flagrant violation of international law,
a betrayal of Iran and a brutal act of
espionage," Western press reports
from Iran said.
Canada closed down its embassy in
Iran Monday to protect its own
diplomatic personnel from Iranian
reprisals after overseeing the escape of
the six American diplomats, who repor-
tedly left over the weekend.
In Toronto, Canada's External Af-
fairs Minister Flora MacDonald
shrugged off the Iranian threat, saying
relations between the two countries had
already "dwindled almost to nothing."
The six Americans who escaped from
Tehran with Canadian help were flown
first to West Germany and then to the
United States, arriving yesterday af-
ternoon at Dover Air Force Base in
Delaware. From there they headed
At least two of the six were reported
to have been inside the American em-
bassy in Tehran during the takeover by
militant students. They escaped shortly
afterwards, but were counted among
the 50 hostages in the embassy.
Meanwhile, the official Iraqui news
agency reported five persons were
killed in fighting between the central
government's revolutionary guards
and Kurdish militants in the southwest
of Iran yesterday.
JEAN MURRAY, a Montreal, Canadanative and an employee of the Canadian Embassy in Washington, gazed from
an embassy window-yesterday toward an office building across the street where the words "Thanks Canada" were
attached to the window. The gratitude was for Canadian help in the escape of six American diplomatic employees
in business, and one Urbana bar owner said he lost $11,000
in business during the pastthree weeks since the law took'
effect. Still other drinking establishments are rumored to
be for sale, the newspaper said, or trying to attract an older
clientele by switching from disco to other music formats. ED
