Although no evidence is yet visible,
University officials say they have been
working 'hard since a mid-August
meeting with Stop Passing Up Now
members to halt the passing up prac-
tice at football games.
Colorful anti-passing-up posters
featuring campus leaders should ap-
pear in dorms by Thursday, following
delays caused by the illness'of a poster
designer and lack of communication
with SPUN members, a spokeswoman
for the University's Office for Student
Services said yesterday.
ELIZABETH Mitchell-Yellin, OSS
associate in charge of the poster cam-
paign, said student leaders from cam-
pus government to fraternity and
sorority presidents to dormitory
resident advisers will receive infor-
' tion about the campaign to stop
passing up.
"'We talked to them (RAs and RDs)
verbally this summer" about the
passing up problem, Mitchell-Yellin
said. "We want to start getting in-
coming students educated."
"Passing up" is a term adopted in
recent years to describe the hoisting of
unwilling and usually female spec-
tators over the crowd at Michigan

seats, where they are set down or drop-
ped. Several victims have suffered
serious injury from the practice, and

to Bi Ten,
Officials at many universities have
never heard of the practice of passing
up, but most of those who have say they
wish they weren't quite so familiar with
the custom of grabbing a spectator and
passing her up through the bleachers
during a football game.
No one knows when or where the
practice started,. but according to a
Daily survey of all the Big Ten schools
and various other universities around
the country, the custom appears to be
concentrated in the midwest.

being passed up in Michigan Stadium,
other 'srchools reported only minor in-
juries resulting from' the practice.
Many officials say the passing up in-
cidents invariably occur in the student
sections of stadiums, during boring
moments in the game and after studen-
ts have been drinking. %
"We've had a problem in the past
with body passing," said Detective
Karen Hanson from the University of

Wisconsin's campus police department.
She said last year the administration
sent a letter about the hazards of the
practice to students in dormitories,

TURKISH SOLDIERS barricade the streets in the aftermath of the military coup in Turkey Thursday night


Turkish leaders sai

they'll remain pro-West

From AP and UPI
ANKARA, Turkey-Turkey's new military rulers pro-
claimed yesterday that the strategic NATO country would
maintain a pro-Western foreign policy. They said they seized
power because Turkish politicians failed to cope with rising
terrorist violence and crushing economic problems.
The generals took control in a swift and bloodless pre-
dawn coup that sent tanks, armored personnel carriers, and
jeeps sweeping through this secular Moslem nation's major
cities. No casualties werereported in the coup, and the new
rulers appeared firmly in control by last night.
PRIME MINISTER Suleyman Demirel and other political
leaders were put under house arrest, nationwide martial law
was imposed, the constitution abolished, and all political ac-
tivity suspended.
It was the third such military coup in 20 years and in
Washington, where the news first broke, the State Depar-
tment said was not a surprise. Officials said they expected a
military move in view of Turkey's worsening economic pnd
political problems but denied allegations that President Car-
ter or anyone else had been tipped in advance.
The Soviet news agency Tass said it was "noteworthy that
the first report of the coup came from the U.S. State Depar-
tment" in Washington. The point was also made by the Fren-
ch newspaper Le Monde which said: "That fact alone leads
one to believe that the United States did not discourage the
perpetrators of this operation. ."
But State Department spokesman John Trattner said the
United States was advised of the coup one hour and 15
minutes before it was officially announced. The word was
passed by an officer of the Turkish general staff to the
American ambassador's senior military adviser in an early

morning telephone call yesterday.

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini said
AP Photo yesterday he will free the 52 American
., hostages if the United States returns
the late shah's wealth, frees Iran's
frozen assets, and promises never to in-
tervene in Iranian affairs again.
In what appeared to be one of the
most significant developments in the
hostage crisis since it began 314 days
ago, Khomeini broke his long silence on
the issue with a list of four demands he
said the United States must meet to win
the hostages' release.

in a "message to Moslem pilgrims" and

broadcast over Tehran Radio, said the
hostages "will be freed as soon as the
deposed Shah's wealth is returned, all
U.S. claims against Iran are canceled,
there is a guarantee of no U.S. military
or political intervention in Iran, and all
our funds are freed."
He said he had passed on these direc-
tives to his parliament "so they can
decide on any course of action in the in-
terest of the nation."
Meanwhile, Iran rushed more troops
to its battle-torn border with Iraq and
called upon all of. its citizens to donate
medical and other supplies to the army,
which reportedly suffered heavy losses
in the latest frontier fighting.
Iranian radio reports, monitored in
Kuwait, said army reinforcements
were being sent to the southwestern
frontier with Iraq, which claimed Thur-
sday to have captured a 50-square-mile
slice of territory whose ownership the
two countries have disputed for years.
In other developments, Iranian exile
factions are planning to form an exile
government with the shah's son, Crown
Prince Reza Cyrus Pahlavi, as the
figurehead monarch, the Atlanta Jour-
nal and Constitution reported in com-
bined Saturday editions.
In a copyright story from
Washington, the newspapers quoted
unidentified sources in Paris, London,
and Washington as saying exiled
Iranians have been meeting in Paris to
plan a coup d'etat to be launched within
a few months.
Pahlavi's father, Shah Mohammad
Reza Pahlavi, was ousted in January
1979 by Moslem revolutionaries, led by
the Ayatollah. The shah died in July in
