IRANIANS FREE TO NEGO TIM TE:
Parlia-ment approves bill1
From AP and UPI
Iran's Parliament empowered the government yesterday to
conclude negotiations with the United States to free the 52
American hostages in exchange for about $6.6 billion in
frozen Iranian assets. Iran's chief negotiator said they could
be freed in "two or three days."
State Department officials, however, jaded by past disap-
pointments during the 438-day-old crisis cautioned against
optimism, saying "serious differences" remained between
the hostages and their homecoming.
"WE REALLY CAN'T evaluate it except that it seems a
step in the right direction," said John Trattner, the State
Department spokesman. "We still have the same fundamen-
tal questions that remain unresolved."
Asked if release of the hostages was imminent, the
spokesman said "we still have differences. -I can't talk of
imminence unless and until those problems are resolved."
The Carter administration expects a prompt reply from
Iran on terms for freeing the hostages now that the Majlis
has approved arbitration of financial and legal problems by a
neutral country, a senior official said yesterday.
"THIS DOESN'T tell us what their final position would be,"-
the official said. "What we expect is that in a day or so,
sooner rather than later, they will come to us with a reply.
Let's hope it is something close to what we can accept and
we'll get a deal."
During a five-hour debate, Parliament heard Behzad
Nabavi, the government's chief hostage negotiator, proclaim
Iran had "rubbed the nose of this great Satan to the ground"
and could now proceed to a quick resolution of the crisis.
"We want to settle the hostage issue within the next two or
three days, either by a settlement and release or by trial,"
After speculation that hardliners were trying to delay its
session, Parliament met and passed a bill allowing the
government to accept a U.S. proposal to put the question of
Iran's disputed assets to international arbitration. The $6.6
billion represents the amount of assets that it is estimated the
United States would return.

TORONTO (UPI)-We may be what
we are because our apelike ancestors
changed their behavior millions of
years ago and began monogamous
That's the far-reaching and
somewhat controversial hypothesis of
Dr. C. Owen Lovejoy, a professor of
anatomy and anthropology at Kent
State University in Kent, Ohio.
He suggests the switch from multipO
mates to only one for a lifetime sparked
the development of upright walking so
males could search for food and allow
the female to care for and protect their
children. Bipedal walking was required
to free the arms to carry food.
LOVEJOY'S IDEAS, to be published
soon in the prestigious scientific journal
Science, were outlined at a daylong
American Association for the Adva
cement of Science symposium on t
latest developments on the study of
He said when the female was able to
protect her offspring, the young had a
higher chance of living to reproductive
age. This improved chances for sur-
vival of the species and led to the
development of greater intelligence.
A long childhood is needed so the
brain can develop and the young can
learn the ways of their elders.
LOVEJOY SAID since the female did
not need to be as mobile as the food-
hunting male, she was smaller and not
as strong physically.
Monogamous mating also removed
males from antagonistic situations and
made it possible for them to cooperate
with each other in groups, he said.
"This reproductive strategy of
monogamy pair bonding, in fact an an-
cient form of the human family, was t
first major advance above the kind of
social structure that we see in the
apes," he said.
"FOLLOWING THE adoption of this
mating strategy is when we begin to see
an increase in intelligence and
development of stone tool culture which
become the later hallmarks of the
The evidence supporting Lovejoy's
ideas come from a remarkable series of
fossil remains of 35 individuals found
Africa by a research team led by Dr.
Carl Johanson of the Cleveland
Museum of Natural History. Recent
laboratory studies have placed the age
of the fossils at 3.5 million years.
The bones of one individual, named
Lucy, proved these creatures of the
newly named species Australopithecus
afarensis were upright walkers.
However, their brains were about the
same size as modern apes.
