Khomeini reportedly
OK's commission


From The Associated Press
Iran's President Abolhassan Bani-
Sadr said yesterday that Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini, the country's
revolutionary leader, had approved the
final terms of the U.N.-appointed com-
mission and its convening in Tehran to
investigate charges against the ousted
The investigative panel, already ap-
proved formally by the United States
and orally by Iran, is considered one
step in a package of requirements
leading to the release of approximately
50 Americans held at the U.S. Embassy
in Tehran by Moslem militants since
Nov. 4.
A story on Michigan's chances for a
post-season tournament bid that ap-
peared in the Daily yesterday incorrec-
tly stated that there are
11 players on the Michigan basketball
.team. There are actually 12 players on
the team.

Bani-Sadr told reporters in Tehran
following a meeting of the ruling
Revolutionary Council that U.N.
Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim,
who picked the five-member com-
mission, would be informed by cable of
Iran's decision.
The officials saidnthe commission
members and a small U.N. support
staff could leave Geneva for Tehran
later this morning.
A U.N. spokesman in Geneva said
Waldheim still was waiting for formal
confirmation of the panel from Iran and
would not announce the members'
names or authorize its departure until
Reliable sources say the members
are French lawyer Edmond Pettiti;
Mohammed BedjaouiaU.N. am-
bassador from Algeria; Andres
Aguilar, Venezuela's former am-
bassador to Washington; Hector W.
Jayewardene, one of Sri Lanka's
leading lawyers, and Syrian diplomat
Adib Daoudy.
No timetable has been announced,
but Waldheim was quoted by Vienna's
Die Presse newspaper as saying the in-
vestigation would take one to two weeks
and the hostages would be released in
the course of the panel's work.

curriculum discussed

(Continued from Page 1)
Sixteen terms must be devoted to
1:00 fulfillment of a major and the choice of
3:30courses for the remaining eight terms
7:00 are optional.
" t 'HORSEMA 9:30 Initially, "Students said they wanted
no part of it (Core)," Wilcox said. The
dean said he believes students' feelings
10:00 have changed and attributes the
12:35present increased enrollment to the
5:15 Core Curriculum.
J 7:30 Stanford University will implement a
/..F&10:00 new program of distribution
ra 2:DPG requirements next fall, according to
Carolyn Lougee, chairwoman of the
Committee of Undergraduate Studies.'



Students will be required to take a
year-long course in western culture as
well as one course in each of seven
areas, including human development
and technology and applied sciences.
According to Lougee, Stanford in-
stituted the changes because of a
"growing feeling that undergraduate
students weren't getting enough
guidance in general studies outside of
their major."
Lougee said there were "certain
areas that the faculty felt were so vital
that no student should graduate from
Stanford without exposure to these
areas." Lougee added that both the
student newspaper and student gover-
nment favor the new program.

Court rules against CIA agent
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that ex-CIA -
agent Frank Snepp must hand over to the government all profits he made on
a 1977 book he wrote without the intelligence agency's approval.

pacts he signed before taking his CIA job represented an impermissible
prior restraint on his free-speech rights.

criminal trials should be open to the public.
The hearing concerned the newspaper's appeal of a trial judge's closing
of a murder trial to reporters and the public last September in Hanover, Va.
