.S. offers Iran grievance panel Acadeywawinner

From The Associated Press
In a new initiative aimed at freeing
the 52 American hostages, the United
States has proposed a commission to
examine Iranian grievances about past
U.S. actions in Iran.
Iran's frontier war with Iraq inten-
sified yesterday and President Saddam
Hussein of Iraq announced he was
abrogating a 1975 border accord with
Iran because of "continuing violation of
the agreement by the Iranian rulers."
Moslems have executed leaders of the
Bahai religion, intimidated Iranian
Jews, and jailed Christian missionaries
in what some international religious
observers describe as a crusade to
"purify" the country of non-Islamic in-
U.S.' officials confirmed yesterday a
disclosure by Iranian President
Aboihassan Bani-Sadr that a new
American proposal had been received
for an inquiry commission to be set up if
it was linked to the release of the
hostages, now in their 319th day of cap-

Hit-and-run reported
A high-speed automobile chase
Tuesday night started with a hit-
and-run accident in sight of a police
car, continued at speeds exceeding
80 mph, and ended only after the
driver lost control of his car, went
over a curb, and hit several other
cars, police reported. The suspect
was finally cornered in a restaurant
parking lot and arrested, police say.
The 18-year-old suspect, whom
police believe might have ben
drinking, hit the first car at the in-
tersection of Revena Boulevard and
W. Huron Street. He then fled from
the scene with police in pursuit and
was apprehended at Knapp's
restaurant at South Maple and Jac -

by Bani-Sadr in an interview with the
French news agency Agence France-
Presse, indicated an 'increase in

BANI-SADR SAID that in his view in-
vestigation by a commission that would
air Iranian grievances would meet
Iran's demand for an investigation of
"'past crimes of the United States in
Iran," AFP reported.
The message was handed to the

Iranian government by the Swiss Em-
bassy in Tehran, which handles U.S. in-
terests in Iran. In Washington, officials
stressed the United States had said for
some time it would not object to Iran's
grievances being put on record in an
"appropriate forum" if the inquiry was
linked to the release of the hostages.
Bani-Sadr's statements followed the
Iranian Parliament's delay of a full-
scale debate on the hostage issue. The
Parliament decided Tuesday to set up a

special committee to deal with the
hostage problem.
BANI-SADR WAS quoted by AFP as
saying he thought it would be "easier"
to settle the confrontation now that
revolutionary leader Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini has set conditions
for the release of the captive
Khomeini listed the conditions as
return of the Pahlavi wealth, freeing

Iranian assets frozen by the United
States, withdrawing financial claims
against Iran, and pledging not to inter-
fere in Iran's internal affairs.
The idea of an inquiry commission
has been raised frequently during the
long standoff over the hostages, usually
by the Iranians who claim the United
States was partly to blame for
repression and economic exploitation in
Iran during the regime of the late Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

issue in the strike, the association's
demand that teachers be able to make
up two paid days-a sum of ap-
proximately $250,000 for the entire
district-was approved by the board,
Barhydt said.
Under the tentative agreement, the
board agreed that teachers be allowed
to make up the two days, but mandated
that one of the days be made up by
parent-teacher conferences, to be
scheduled during evenings and on

eachers reach agreement

weekends. Teachers will have the op-
tion of scheduling parent-teacher con-
ferences during non-school hours to
make up the second day, Barhydt said.
Barhydt indicated that the school
board wanted the provision for parent-
teacher conferences during non-school
hours in the agreement, adding that,
"We've never been able to get it into the
scheduling of such conferences was a
good idea. "They (teachers) do it now
in many instances," he said. "We think
the concept of paying teachers to do
that, as a matter-of-fact, might be a
good idea."
Under the tentative agreement, the
school board agreed to the salary

agreement, Taylor said.
DURING EARLIER negotiations,
both sides had reached informal
agreement on a requirement that
teachers attend five hours of in-service
training during the school year. Under
the tentative agreement, teachers have
three options, Taylor said.
ethey may schedule five hours of in-
service training or workshops on their
own time;
ethey may attend a system-wide
workshop on June 24, 1981; or,
*they may choose not to attend the

workshop or in-service training, and
lose one day's pay.
UNDER THE tentative school calen-
dar, students will attend school until
June 19 next summer. June 22 and 23
will be record days for teachers, Taylor
said, and the optional workshop will be
held on June 24.
Taylor indicated that formal
ratification of the agreement will
probably take place within two weeks.
He noted that it was important for the
system's staff to have time to read the
agreement, to discuss it, and then to
vote on it.

LANSING (UPI)-Robert Tisch,
Michigan's No. 1 tax cutter, said
yesterday he will vote for the proposed
income tax increase designed to fund
new facilities for the state's over-
crowded prison system.
Tisch made the seemingly out-of-
character pledge in a statement
responding to reports that adoption of
his property tax slashing plan would
force the closing of four major prisons
and release of 6,000 inmates.
The colorful Shiawassee County drain
commissioner called the
report-prepared by the state Correc-
tions Department-"scare tactics" on
the part of the Milliken administration

which opposes his amendment.
"MAYBE GOV. (William) Milliken
and others in his administration are not
aware that Proposal E, on the Nov. 4
ballot, will provide funds . . . to build
new prison facilities," Tisch said.
"Certainly, Proposal E will permit
the people to directly vote on the prison
issue," he said.
"I intend to vote for Proposal E
The proposal, placed on the ballot by
the legislature with Milliken's blessing,
would levy a .1 per cent income tax for
five years to fund construction of five
new prisons.
