Fighting intensifies
in Iran-Iraq conflict

From UPI and AP
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Iran pressed its
campaign yesterday to oust Iraq's
ruling Baathist regime amid reports of
fresh fighting along the joint border and
warnings from Baghdad that it will deal
harshly with any threats.
An Iranian military spokesman, in-
terviewed on Tehran Radio, reported
more fighting along the central fron-
tier's Qasr el Shirin region. He gave no
details of casualties on either side but
said Iranian troops had destroyed an
Iraqi military base.,
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, reflecting the
declared policy of Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini, said, "We have decided to
overthrow the Baathist regime of
Iraq," headed by "America's agent
Iraqi president Saddam Hussein."
Ghotbzadeh did not explain how Iran
planned to topple the Hussein gover-
nment, but officials in Baghdad said
Iraqi security forces had captured
Iranian weapons, explosives, and plans
for subversion smuggled into an anti-
government Iraqi group.
Ghotbzadeh's announcement
followed an angry crossfire of words-
between and Hussein -an in turn was
followed by reports of fighting along the
Iraqi-Iranian border.
KHOMEINI, who spent 15 years in
self-imposed exile in Iraq before retur-
ning to Iran via Paris in January 1979,
repeated his call for the overthrow of
the Iraqi regime and described the
Baghdad rulers as "deviationist
But Baghdad's state-owned
newspaper Al Joumhouria ignored the
reports of fighting and said, "The
Iranian leaders are dreaming if they
think they can export their so-called
revolution to their neighboring coun-
tries. What they have in Iran is not a
revolution but the spread of sec-
tarianism and racism."
The newspaper warned, "Anyone
who extends its hand to our country will
have his hand cut off. If anyone wants
to try, then let him if he can."

'KHOMEINI ALSO said the. Iraqi
authorities, by expelling thousands of
Iranians, were out to "gratify their
selfish whims in acting in blind
obedience to the great Satan," meaning
the United States.
Iranian television said an Iranian jet
fighter and three military helicopters
fought an air battle with Iraqi helicop-
ters yesterday over the Iranian border
town of Baveiss. No planes were shot
down, but 15 Iranian revolutionary
guards were wounded in artillery
barrages and rocket attacks, the
broadcast said.
Iraq and Iran, with a predominantly

Shiite Moslem community, have been
at odds for decades. A short-lived
political accord was shattered with the
ouster of Shah Mohammed Reza
Pahlavi 14 months ago.
Western military experts said that if
Iran becomes entangled in open war-
fare with Iraq, Khomeini stands a good
chance of losing because the Iraqi army
is considered the best-equipped and
staffed military corps in the Middle
East, excluding Israel.
Iran's army has been severely crip-
pled by desertions and deterioration of
machinery since the Islamic

From The Associated Press
The young radicals holding 50
Americans in Tehran threatened
yesterday to burn the U.S. Embassy
and kill their "spy hostages" if the
United States tries "even the smallest"
military move against Iran.
The militants later told a Western
reporter in Tehran that by "spy
hostages" they meant all of their cap-
IN ANOTHER statement, reported
by Iran's official news agency Pars, the
militants said they would "burn into
ashes the spy hostages and the building
they are living in if we see any
suspicious military move or the least
military attack by the U.S. against tpe
territory of Iran."
After seizing the embassy last Nov. 4,
the militants threatened to kill their
hostages if the United States tried to
rescue them through military action.
They said they had rigged the embassy
compound with explosive mines.

For supporters of the Equal Rights
Amendment (ERA), it is time to call
out the reserves. Their half-century-old
struggle for nationwide passage is
heading for a showdown next month in
Illinois, which is the last "holdout"
state left in the North.
With just three states needed for a
two-thirds majority, (the margin
required for national ratification),
ERA backers plan to zero in on Illinois'

capitol, Springfield, in the coming mon-
th; hoping passage there will trigger
overall success. Speaking at a noon-
time rally yesterday on the Diag, ERA
support leaders from across Michigan
appealed to Ann Arbor residents to help
fight what they hope will be the decisive
battle in the ratification fight.
"WE NEED to be there en masse,"

Gotbzadeh, interviewed yesterday by
American television networks, said he
doubted the Iranian government would
be "in a position" to stop the militants if
they decided to kill the hostages.
AT THE TEHRAN news conference,
however, Ghotbzadeh spoke of im-
proved conditions for'the hostages. He
said the militants had agreed to provide
better living conditions and to allow
more visits to the captives. "But who or
how or when or what way must all be
discussed," the foreign minister said.
Iranian revolutionary leader
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini said
earlier this week he approved of per-
mitting visits to the hostages, and
President Abolhassan Bani Sadr said
he favored naming an observer to over-
see the hostages' living conditions.

More cat killings
Last month, five University students admitted they
tortured and killed a cat in Decqmber. But Ann Arbor isn't
the only place dangerous for cats lately. Last month, four
cats were found with their heads blown off near Columbia,
Maryland. Someone has apparently been tying firecrackers
to the animals' collars. The Animal Protection Institute of
America has offered a $1,000 reward for information
leading to the conviction of the person responsible for the
