EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT ANWAR Sadat confers with the former Shah of Iran yesterday morning during thei
meeting at the Maadi military hospital in Cairo.

From AP and UPI
TEHRAN, Iran - Tens of thousands of chanting, fist-
waving Iranians mobbed the occupied U.S. Embassy
yesterday, protesting the deposed shah's move to Egypt and
demanding the 50 American hostages be put on trial:
The angry crowd estimated at between 50,000 and 60,000
denounced Egyptian President Anwar Sadat'and "American
imperialism." Inside the barricaded diplomatic compound,
the American hostages spent their 143rd day in captivity..
THERE WERE no reports of violence but the
emonstrations, encouraged by Tehran Radio, were reported
have spread throughout the nation.
The focus of the crowd's anger, Shah Mohammed Reza
Pahlavi, was in a Cairo military hospital spending his first'
full day in Egypt after leaving Panama. Sadat visited with
the shah briefly and reported the ailing monarch was running
a high fever but was expected to soon undergo surgery for the
removal of his enlarged spleen.
The Egyptian president dismissed the attacks by Iranian
officials for granting the shah asylum and said, "They may
shout until the end of the world. I shall never heed this."
There were conflicting signals from the government and

FOREIGN MINISTER Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, who was the
prime force behind the unsuccessful attempt to extradite the
shah from Panama, asserted the shah's flight to Egypt was
"a moral victory for Iran.

students to the University. "I think a lot

year we had only 24 people registered.

One of the most obvious and costly
renovations planned is the installation
,of chairlifts in Markley and East Quad.
Project coordinator Paul Boyer
explained that Markley would need
three chair lifts - two leading up and
down from the front entrance, and one
,leading to the cafeteria.
"The real problem in the dorms is to
keep it (the chair lift) from being
vandalized," said Andrews. He
Axplained that it would be vital that the
Wlifts, as well as all elevators, remain in
working order. One solution would be to
issue a key for the lift to handicapped
residents, he said.
"WE HOPE to start a good
awareness campaign in each hall,"
Andrews said, adding that people will

not vandalize the facilities as readily if
they know certain people rely on them
for access.
Boyer explained that any dormitory
which houses students in a particular
academic program must be converted
so that handicapped students may
participate. Mosher Jordan and
Couzens halls are not being converted
because handicapped students can get
the same kind of housing in the other
"We want to have all programs open
to the handicapped," Andrews said.
That includes the Pilot Program '(in

Some renovation was done to comply
with federal government requirements
during the past three years, but the
majority of the work will be done this
-summer. The government's deadline
for the project was originally set for
June, 1980, but Andrews said
September is a more realistic date.
"There's no great need to have it
done until then," he said.
