In response to the brutal Sunday
morning attack, many local
organizations have intensified their ef-
forts to prevent additional such attacks.
Police fear the Sunday killing and two
similar murders in the past five months
may be the work of one person.;
Area police agencies stepped up their
already extensive investigations while
joining other community groups in

are "working with their fingerst

Although some dorms, such as South
Quad, have yet to elect or organize
representatives, most have at this
point, and the subject of campus
security has been a common topic of
discussion. At Markley and Alice Lloyd,
for example, dormitory escort services
to and from the Diag at night have been
of renewed interest to house represen-
tatives. Markley Council President
Steve Page said that at their Monday
night meeting, the nine house represen-


tatives were instructed to emphasize
the escort service to all the residents
there. At a West Quad government
meeting, however, also held Monday
night, an unidentified spokesperson
said .the recent attacks were not
discussed. "We just talked about
Homecoming, pinball machines, that
sort of thing," he said.

In an effort to cope with ever-increas-
ing college costs more and more
students are juggling classes and part-
time jobs through the University's
Work-Study program, which is one
third larger this year than last year.
Approximately 3,500 students have
qualified for"University-related Work
Study jobs which pay between $3.40 and
$5.00 per hour. As of last week almost
1,000 had been hired, said financial aid
officer Nancy Longmate.
THIS YEAR, for the first time, Op-,
portunity Program students were
automatically offered jobs through the
Work Study program, which is now a
part of the Office of Financial Aid.

to help minority and disadvantaged
students adjust more easily to the

Work Study students select part-time
jobs offered by 25 University depar-
tments, including positions as lab
helpers, editorial and research
assistants, and typists.
THE ANNUAL Work Study job fair,
which was held last week, was more
successful than in previous years,
Longmate said.
"The fair was 30 percent larger this
year, with a little over 400 people atten-
ding. We were able to hire 132 people
on-the-spot, with lots of interviews set
up," she said.
The departments are often eager to
hire Work Study students because the
department pays only 20 percent of the
student's salary, while the federal
government pays the remaining 80 per-
cent. The federal government allocated
$2 million to the University to fund the
jobs for financially eligible students
this year.

Iranian Parliament establishes


conmusio to review
From United Press International four conditions. b returning the late mr ' f h 1hk

The Iranian Parliament voted
yesterday to hand over the 318-day-old
hostage crisis to a special review com-
mission but it was not clear if the move
would hasten or hinder the release of
the 52 American captives.
Tehran radio, monitored in London
by the BBC, said parliament voted by a
"decisive majority" to create a special
commission to review the hostage
crisis. Parliament had been scheduled
to begin its debate in "open session"
about the Americans but decided td
form the commission instead.
THE RADIO gave no other details
and it was not immediately clear what
the commission's mandate would be.
Parliament was charged by
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini with
deciding the fate of the hostages seized
when the U.S. Embassy was stormed
Nov. 4. Most members of the fun-
damentalist-dominated house have said
they favor trying the hostages as spies.
Khomeini, in a rare comment on the
crisis, said Friday the captives would
be set free if the United States fulfilled

shah's wealth, unfreezing Iranian
assets, dropping all claims against Iran
and promising not to intervene in Iran's
internal affairs.
THAT SEEMED to take the matter
out of Parliament's hands and, at the
time, also appeared significant because
of the omission of a demand that the
United States apologize for its past sup-

pore of ne sna l.

Carter cautions against optimism

From United PressInlternational
President Carter said yesterday
there is no prospect for an early release
of the American hostages in Iran,
toning down his Monday statement that
signals from Tehran indicated the
situation might be resolved "in the very
near future."
Carter, campaigning in Atlanta, told
reporters he and Secretary of State
Edmund Muskie agree no
breakthrough is at hand.
"WE DON'T HAVE any reason to
believe the situation has been resolved

at all," he said. "We don't have any
prospect for an early resolution of the
issue at this time."
On Monday, Carter offered a dif-
ferent outlook during a town meeting in
Corpus Christi, Texas. He said the
Iranian government was making
statements "that might very well lead
'to a resolution of this problem in the
very near future."
Muskie, talking to reporters on
Capitol Hill after a Senate hearing
yesterday, said, "I know that the
president's attitude is one of extreme

caution about raising any expectations
I don't give the president's (Mon-
day) statement the upbeat inter-
pretation that some of my questioners
assign to it."
CARTER SAID yesterday there is
now at least a government in place in
Tehran, where before there had not
been "anyone who could speak with
authority" on .ne hostages.
Muskie said he and Carter are "in
complete agreement" that the latest
developments in Iran must be viewed
with caution.
