ALGIERS, Algeria-American en-

closed doors yesterday searching for
solutions to the "serious" obstacles
remaining to a U.S.-Iran agreement on

The chief U.S. negotiator in the
hostage crisis, Deputy Secretary of
State Warren Christopher, met for
almost three hours yesterday with
Algerian Foreign Minister Mohamed
Benyahia to explain detail of the latest
American message to Iran.
Christopher was to meet again today
with the Algerians, who have been ac-

AS CHRISTOPHER met hurriedly
with Benyahia, Secretary of State Ed-

President Carter repeated his hope of
settling the crisis before he leaves of-
fice and described the latest American
proposals as "fair" and "reasonable,"
but said "I can't predict success."
President-elect Reagan said he sup-
ported Carter's efforts but would not
give Iran "a blank check," a reference
to Tehran's ransom demands.
The Iranians had demanded that the
United States put up $24 billion in finan-
cial guarantees-$14 billion to ensure
that their $8 billion to $14 billion in
frozen Iranian assets in the United
States are eventually released, and $10
billion to guarantee that U.S. assets of
the late Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi
are surrendered to Iran.

Directors of non-academic programs
that face substantial budget cuts are
swallowing hard- and acknowledging
the need for such money-saving moves.
A total of $3 million will be cut from
the operations of a designated group of
programs by July 1. Among the affec-
ted activities are radio station WUOM,
Recreational Sports, and the Extension

The University's chief budget
officer outlines his plan to save
some $3 million through non-
academic program cuts. See

as possible, especially if staff mem-

home evaluations to move slowly and
carefully enough so that the best

decisions can be made.
Staff members of the Center for
Research on Learning and Teaching
were told earlier this week that they
can expect about a 30 percent reduction
of funds. That agency's publications,

be the first to be dropped, staff mem-

The Institute for Environmental

it will soon close down.

expected as much as 50 percent of his
University funds cut by the time the

does have other revenue sources, cuts

in University funds will affect the
federal support the radio station
receives. This year, WUOM got $110,000
from the federal government-27t for
every dollar the University spends.
He and his staffs are looking at inter-
nal money-saving moves-such as
reducing hours. WUOM is at the tail end
of its annual fund drive and it has been
appealing to listeners for more help.

A state law that took effect Jan. 1 will allow many
automobile owners under 25 to obtain low-risk car in-
surance more easily and cheaply.
Under the new law-Michigan's Essential Insurance
Act-insurance companies must provide full coverage to
eligible drivers, regardless of their sex, marital or em-
ployment status, or geographic location. Prior laws made
it difficult to establish whether such discrimination was
actually used in the denial of coverage.
"THE LAW TREATS PEOPLE who are objectively the
same equally," said Jean Carlson, state Deputy Insuran-
ce Commissioner. "There have been anti-discrimination
laws in the books before, but they almost involved a mind-
reading process because of the underwriters' subjec-
tivity," said Steve Weiss, formerly of the Statewide
Coalition Against Redlining. Redlining is a company's
refusal to offer coverage on the basis of geographic

The Wayne State University Board of
Governors has rejected a-request of a
student coalition to dismiss two editors
of the MSU student newspaper, the
South End.
Members of the coalition, organized
by the Spartacus Youth League, ap-
peared before the board in its meeting
last month and asked that two student
editors be removed for their alleged
refusal to print alternative viewpoints
on the editorial page.
THE BOARD DECIDED not to act on
the student dispute, claiming its inter-
ference in student affairs would set a
"bad precedent," according to coalition
spokeswoman Meg Griffin.
"The Board of Governors refused to
act on it," Griffin said. "They refused
to do anything at all."
Both South End Editor-in-Chief John
Burnett and Managing Editor Mike

Nuttle, the two students targetted by
the coalition, said they never expected
the board to act on the coalition's
"FOR ALL PRAC TCAL purposes, it
(the issue) is settled," Burnett said.
"But I don't expect them (the coalition)
to stop" their dismissal campaign.
Nuttle said the campaign was merely
a publicity ploy by the Spartacus Youth
League, calling the coalition members
"media hounds."
"They have practical motivations
behind their actions," Nuttle said.
"And their practical motivations are
just . .. to get more exposure for their
