Bani-Sadr threatens
American allies with
cut-off of oil supply


Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports


From UPI and AP
Iranian President Abolhassan Bani-
Sadr, addressing an anti-American
crowd numbering in the hundreds of
thousands in Tehran, warned Western
Europe and Japan yesterday they will
not get "so much as snake's poison"
from Iranian oil wells' if they help .
Washington put an economic squeeze
on Iran to free the U.S. Embassy
A leading Moslem clergyman took
the threat a step further broadcasting a
direct appeal to the people of Arab oil-
producing countries to stand by for or-
ders from Iranian leader Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini to "cut off the
vein" of all Mideast oil to the West.
MASSIVE "UNITY rallies' across
Iran yesterday, the Moslem sabbath,
were aimed as much at Iraq as at
p America.
The Iranians claimed yesterday to
have inflcited "heavy losses" in lives
and material on Iraqi forces in the two
countries' continuing border hostilities,
and the first Iranian deaths were repor-
Bani-Sadr threatened to invade Iraq
if Iraqi forces "dared to take one step
forward" into Iranian territory.
THE IRANIAN news agency Pars
said one Iranian soldier was killed and
two others were wounded in an artillery
exchange with Iraqi gunners near the
Iranian border town of Qasr-a-Shirin,
300 miles west of Tehran.
Tehran Radio said Iranian naval
vessels were steaming toward Iraqi
waters and army troops were sent to
protect the oilfields at Naft-e-Shah near
the border.

AN IRANIAN CHILD wearing a full military uniform-including a flowered
rifle-stands under a poster of Ayatollah Khomeini. A "unity" rally involv-
ing hundreds of thousands was held in Tehran yesterday.

Meanwhile in Washington, President
Carter, reminding Europe of the U.S.
commitment to protect West Berlin,
asked the allies once again yesterday to
impose sanctions agaisnt Iran and ap-
pealed for an "understanding of mutual
CARTER MADE the statements
during a meeting with West Berlin
Mayor Dietrich Stobbe, whose city is a
symbol of America's decision to
provide military protection to its
European allies.
In a speech Thursday, Carter
acknowledged for the first time he has
been disappointed by the limited steps
other countries have taken to pressure
Iran to release the 50 American
The same day, foreignaministers of
the Common Market nations met in
Lisbon and failed to impose sanctions
against Iran or reduce the size of their
embassies in Tehran as Carter
suggested. Instead, they voted to co-
demn Iran for holding the hostages.
fear they would have the most to lose by
plunging into President Carter's
diplomatic and economic offensive
against Iran and are likely to take a
more cautious approach.
Although there is much sympathy for
America's position, this is coupled with
clear reluctance to become involved in
an economic and military dispute in the
Middle East.
The nations of the European
Economic Community and Japan have
instructed their ambassadors in Tehran
to demand that the Iranian government
set a certain date for the release of the
50 U.S. embassy hostages.
The EEC foreign ministers will be
meeting again in Luxembourg April 21,
and a delayed EEC summit will be held
in the same city at the end of the month.
These will be the likeliest occasions for
the nine-member Common Market to
draw together on a common position
over Iran.
But the European nations and Japan
have little stomach for an economic
blockade that would hurt them propor-
tionately more than the United States
On average the EEC gets about seven
percent of its oil imports from Iran. The
proportion is considerably higher in
West Germany, Denmark, and Ireland.
Japan, relies on Iran for about 13 per
cent of its oil imports.
The Japanese newspaper Yomiuri
Shimbun expressed that country's
quandary in succinct words: "Selfish as
it may seem," it said, "We cannot sup-
port the United States fully on Iran, in
consideration of our national interests."
The view widely held in official
European circles is that economic san-
ctions against Iran would not be suc-
cessful because the people in charge
are more concerned with ideology than
the economy.

Mailback response exceeds
Census Bureau's hopes
WASHINGTON-Americans have mailed back 83.9 per cent of their
census forms, exceeding the Census Bureau's goal of 80 per cent, Deputy
Commerce Secretary Luther Hodges reported yesterday.
Hodges indicated that the higher mailba.ck rate would mean a lower
followup cost. "For every one per cent mailed back over the 80 percent
target, some $2.5 million in followup costs can be saved," Hodges said.
Census Director Vincent Barabba predicted that the mailback rate
could top 85 per cent.
Carter asks chemical firms
to hold down prices
WASHINGTON-President Carter asked the nation's chemical industry
'yesterday to follow the lead of food and drug companies by holding down
prices even if it means losing some profits this year.
"I notice in the chemical industry that recently the price increases per
quarter have been very high," Carter told the executives.
But none of the executives approached by reporters as they left the
meeting would commit their firms to do anything they aren't already doing
to keep within the administration's voluntary wage and price guidelines.
NRC officials meet with
Harrisburg civic leaders
HARRISBURG, Pa.-Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Chair-
man John Ahearns and Harold Denton, chief of the NRC division of nuclear
reactor regulation, met with local officials here yesterday in an attempt to
ease tensions over the proposed venting of radioactive krypton gas at the Th-
ree Mile Island nuclear power plant.
Three weeks ago, local citizens shouted obscenities at NRC officials who
were attempting to explain the venting plan at a public meeting.
Denton said the radiation involved wouldbefar below the quantities
allowed in the air by the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
Gang of Four to be tried
soon, according to Deng
PEKING-The "gang of four" will face trial "as early as possible,"
China's senior vice-premier, Deng Xiaoping said yesterday.
In an interview with the Associated Press, the 75-year-old Chinese
leader said a specific date for the trial could not yet be announced because,
"we must make the necessary preparations from the legal standpoint."
The four were accused of plotting to seize power and are blamed for
nearly everything that has gone wrong in China since 1965, when Jiang Qing,
widow of -the late Mao Tse Tung and leader of the four, helped."the great
helmsman" launch the Cultural Revolution.-
Census Bureau predicts
rise in families' income
WASHINGTON-The average annual income of American families in
real terms will rise from $14,208 this year to $16,856 at the end of the decade if
past growth trends continue in the 1980's, the Census Bureau said yesterday.
Gordon Greene, a Census Bureau statistician, said that "real" growth
rates-growth which is not due to inflation-may be a little lower in the
future. He reasoned that income growth slowed markedly in the late 1970s
and this year's expected recession could slow it further.
Lance trial continues
ATLANTA-Bert Lance was cross-examined yesterday about dozens
of financial transactions by the prosecutor in charge of his bank fraud trial.
The ex-federal budget director reasserted his financial statements were ac-
curate and that the loans he made were sound.
One area about which Lance was questioned concerned an unsecured
loan of $45,000 which Lance granted to his son, David, then a college student,
in September 1974.
With three associates, Lance has been on trial for 13 weeks on bank
fraud charges.

Are you concerned and troubled about the great in-
crease in lawlessness? Violent hold-ups, stealing,
cheating, swindling, murder, rape, adultery, and other
kinds of violence and anarchy! At times these things
strike mighty close to our homes, loved ones, and friends!
And they will get closer unless some change is made.
In the days of Noah God destroyed the earth and
everything wherein was the breath of life excepting the
eight members of Noah's family, and the animals he kept
alive in the Ark according to God's orders. The cause of
this judgment was for causes similar to the ones that ex-
ist today: "Man corrupted God's way on the earth, and the
earth was filled with violence."
MAN-," The Almighty announced in the days of Noah,
gau ca t t ho,.4 n sB *i mau ha the tima n ahnut

reveal the morality, righteousness, and very character of
God; and strive to be workers together with His Holy Spirit
in writing these Commandments in our hearts to the end
we may accomplish the whole duty of man, which is "To
fear God, and keep His Commandments..
Concerning God's judgements and slaughter of the
wicked, the writer has had Divines, or Dry Vines, say to
him: "God is not like that!" Permit this comment on that:
Consider the slaughter, death, and suffering going on all
the time in all the world: surely as the Scripture says: "The
whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain and death
even until now." Think of the death, suffering, and sorrow
in our own city, in our own generation, and the wars of
former generations, history, and antiquity.
