RELEASE OF HOSTAGES REMAINS UNCERTAIN
UN panel departs
From UPI and AP
A U.N. commission will leave for
Tehran today to investigate the deposed
shah's alleged crimes amid uncertainty
over whether the probe would lead to
the release of 50 American hostages.
The announcement the commission
was finally ready to go came after
tough new statements from Iranian of-
ficials saying the commission's work
would have no bearing whatsoever on
the fate of the hostages, held for a 111th
THE CLOSEST thing to a hopeful
sign yesterday was the mere announ-
cement by Algerian Ambassador
Mohammed Bedjaoui, co-chairman of
the U.N. investigative commission, that
his group would leave Geneva today for
Bedjaoui, who unexpectedly flew
back to New York Wednesday on
"private business," met U.N.
Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim for
one hour before returning to Geneva.
In Geneva, the other commission
chairman, Andres Aguilar of
Venezuela, said, "We are pleased to be
finally on our way and we feel very
optimistic about the outcome of our
work. We hope to start work right
THE COMMISSION was formed at
Iran's request to investigate the crimes
that the Islamic regime alleges the
shah committed during his reign.
Stout denials by Iranian Foreign
Minister Sadegh Ghotbzadeh that the
work of the commission is linked to an
early release of the hostages, stand in
contrast to persistent reports from the
United States that the opposite is true.
But United Press International repor-
ted yesterday that Iranian officials, in-
cluding President Abolhassan Bani-
Sadr and Ghotbzadeh, have said that
the commission would be a "first step"
toward an 'agreement to free the
UPI REPORTED that the Iranian of-
ficials have said that the commission
will be allowed to discuss release of the
hostages when it reaches Tehran. r
The commission had been scheduled
to leave for Tehran on Wednesday mor-
ning. But Waldheim announced a delay
until the weekend because the Iranian
government had asked him for "a little
more time" to prepare for the group's
Exactly what the Iranian and U.S.
governments have agreed to let the
commission decide is not publicly
known. Waldheim has said only the
commission is to complete its work and
report to him as quickly as possible.
IRAN REQUIRES that the United
States admit guilt of alleged past
crimes in Iran, vow not to intervene
there again, and not to stand in the way
of extradition of the shah.
On the basis of recent statements
from the principals involved, there is
still no clear indication of a consensus
among Iranian authoritiesto put an end
to the crisis.
Bani-Sadr has been defied by the
Moslem militants holding the embassy,
who have insisted on return of the shah
from his exile in Panama and will only
obey the instructions of revolutionary
leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Khomeini has renewed his support to
the militants, who on Thursday
reiterated their demand the shah be
returned. Bani-Sadr has said Iran's
determination to get the shah back is

In Panama, the government of
President Aristides Royo has let it be
known it may not accept the com-
mission's findings. An editorial in the
newspaper Matutino, regarded as a
government mouthpiece said "The fin-
dings are not a mandatory order that
Panama must carry out." It said the
administration does not intend "to
proclaim the innocence or guilt of the
former Iranian monarch."
LONDON (AP) - Six OPEC mem-
bers, in a move the Venezuelan energy
minister said would "protect the pur-
chasing power of the petrodollar,"
yesterday proposed raising the cartel's
oil price every quarter.
The quarterly price increases would
be pegged to fluctuations in the value of
the dollar and 11 other major curren-
cies, and to consuming countries, in-
flation and economic growth rates.
THE PLAN, which is expected to be
presented to oil ministers from all 13
members of the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries at a
special meeting early in the spring, was
passed at a two-day session here of
OPEC's strategy committee.
Venezuelan Energy Minister Hum-
berto Calderon Berti, regarded by ob-
servers as an OPEC moderate, said the
panel also recommended keeping the
cartel's 30 million to 32 million barrels-
a-day oil output unchanged, except for
unspecified technical adjustments, "for
the next few years at least."
Oil analyst William Randol of the
brokerage house of Salomon Brothers
in New York called the production
pledge "a peace offering to the in-
dustrialized countries in return for
socking it to us on prices."
THE COMMITTEE'S plan seeks to
restore a unified price system for the
,cartel's next decade, replacing the
leapfrogging price increases of the past
year, when average OPEC prices
doubled to,.around $30 per 42-gallon
The panel also called for a series of
talks with consuming nations on
technology exchanges, and backed new
financial assistance to help developing
countries meet the rising cost of impor-
Kuwaiti Oil Minister Ali Khalifa Al-
Sahah said the plan would be presented
to an "extraordinary" OPEC oil
ministers' conference that "certainly
would be held before" the ministers'
next regularly scheduled meeting June
9 in Algiers, Algeria.
THE DATE and place of the special
meeting are still, to be decided. Al-
Sahah said United Arab Emirates Oil
Minister Mana Saeed Otaiba was asked
by the panel to tour OPEC nations to
seek support for the plan.
OPEC's 1979 output has been
estimated at 30.8 million barrels daily,
the third-highest production level on
record. The cartel accounts for about
half of the world's oil production,,and
provided 30 per cent of U.S. oil needs in
the first 10 months of 1979.

Israel to switch currency
JERUSALEM-The Israeli pound, called lira in Hebrew, will become
a thing of the past. Israel's Finance Minister Yigal Hurvitz said yesterday
the official unit of currency will become the shekel, the unit of currency used
in biblical times, over the next three months.
The shekel will be worth ten times the value of the pound, now valued at
2.6 U.S. cents. Hurvitz said the move was to inspire confidence in the
currency and eliminate the fantastic amounts involved in ordinary
transactions. It will probably have limited effect on inflation, which hit 111
per cent in the country last year.
Flu deaths increase
ATLANTA-A flu epidemic that has been hitting the eastern part of
the country claimed 700 lives last week, 200 more than the anticipated
epidemic threshold. It was the fourth consecutive week that the flu claimed
an epidemic level number of victims.
The virus has been identified as B-Singapore. Influenza usually claims a
large number of persons over 65, but last week excessive deaths among 45-to
64-year olds were reported.
Flood victims return
as sun comes out
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-The sun finally shone again in southern
California, marking the end of nine nightmarish days of flooding in the
southwestern part of the country. -
Meanwhile, people began returning to their homes to begin cleaning up
and salvaging what they could after the flood, which claimed at least 36 lives
and cost an estimated $425 million in California alone. The strawberry crop
was destroyed in the rains and the almond crop is endangered.
In Phoenix, a sewer main severed by the flood was dumping 35 million
gallons of raw sewage a day into the Salt River, while a small earthquake,
registering between 3.3 and 3.9 onkthe Richter scale, greeted residents of
muddly northeast San Diego County yesterday morning.
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
RICHMOND-A Richmond Times-Dispatch story revealed that as
many as 4,000 people had been sterilized over a 50-year period in that state,
with the idea of ridding Virginia of "misfits" and preventing "racial
degeneracy" byattempting to control heredity factors.
The 1924 statute, aimed at ,combatting hereditary mental illness, was
passed at the urgining of a superintendent of the Lynchburg Training School
and College, where many of the sterilizations were performed. It was passed
in the name of eugenics and was upheld in the Supreme Court, but now
Virginia state senator Hunter Andrews wants the law taken off the books. No
sterilizations have been performed since 1972.
FBI probes Battle Creek
brutality against blacks
BATTLE CREEK-The FBI has begun investigation of alleged civil
rights violations and police brutality against blacks, according to city
officials. Some legal action is pending, but officials said they were not free to
discuss its nature.
The charges deal with two city officers accused of throwing an exploding
device at the home of a black family last year, and of pointing a gun at one
member of the family. Another charge is against police, who allegedly beat
two black prisoners and mistreated a teenage bpy who witnessed an armed

Usually we think of the heathen as savages or uncivilized
people, but here God names them as kings, rulers, people
who imagine a vain thing, and rage and rebel against His
Government, His King, Laws and Commandments. Webster
says a heathen is "one who does not believe In the God of the
Bible." In our day and generation has not God laughed at,
held in derision, spoken In His wrath, and poured contempt
upon many a king, prince, and ruler? What about the late
czar and Stalin of Russia: the late Kaiser and Hitler of
Germany. Mussolini, and others since, great ones In the
earth who have come and gone!
'THE LAPSE OF CHURCH DISCIPLINE WASA CERTAIN

It is the duty of every true and faithful witness of Jesus
Christ to "cry aloud and spare not" to denounce every
transgression of the law of God, and the rejection and
departure from "one jot or tittle" of God's Ten
Commandments which reveal the very character of the
Omnipotent Creator. Such witnesses are not your enemies,
but friends in that they seek to turn you away from the wrath
of God. THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH, AND THESE
FAITHFUL WITNESSES ARE SEEKING TO "SMITE
DEATH'S THREATENING WAVE BEFORE YOU." (This
quote Is from the old-and beloved Christian hymn: "God be
with you till we meet again, smite death's threatening wave
before you, keep love's banner floating over you,-.") The

Covenant, and the work and ministry of the Lord Jesus
