BAGHDAD, Iraq-Fighting raged in
the Iran-Iraq 'oil heartland yesterday
and Iraq said it carried the war to the
Iranian capital with an air raid on an oil
refinery on the outskirts of Tehran.
Iraq also mounted fierce tank and air
attacks on the vital Iranian port of
Khorramshahr but both sides agreed to
accept an offer by Moslem nations to
mediate a cease-fire in the five-day-old
Iranian students aren't in any hurry to
leave the United States. See story, Page
A TWO-MAN mission will leave for'
the Iraqi and Iranian capitals this
weekend, the secretary-general of the
40-nation Islamic Conference announ-
President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr of
Iran warned, however, that any
mediation effort would have to
"recognize Iraq's aggression," Tehran
Radio reported.
In Baghdad, a Foreign Ministry
statement reiteratedIraq's conditions,
which include Iranian recognition of
Iraqi sovereignty over the entire Shatt
al-Arab waterway and return of the
Persian Gulf islands of Abu Mousa and
the Greater and Lesser Tunbs to "Arab
sovereignty." A high Iraqi official in
Baghdad said "we refuse any
mediation that does not recognize our
national sovereignty over the Shatt al-
Arab and the borderlands.! hd."
TeU.N. Security Council scheduled
a meeting on halting the fighting and
Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim said
that despite U.N. efforts,. "the fighting
has continued and intensified on land,
on the sea, and in the air."
PILLARS OF SMOKE rose from the
burning Iranian al center of Abadan,
and Iraq claimed the city's fall was



imminent. But reporters who reached
the disputed Shatt al-Arab waterway on
the Iraqi side said the sound of Iranian
artillery shells pounding Iraq was
deafening and that oil installations on
both sides of the waterway were afire.
Iran reported "very heavy" civilian
casualties in the oil port of Khorram-
shahr, which Iraq claimed to have cap-
tured on Thursday. Iran conceded that
part of its huge Abadan refinery was
burning and out of operation but denied
nearby Khorramshahr had fallen and
said the city's "brave people" were
fighting Iraqi invaders in the streets
and from rooftops.
Iraq claimed it bombed an oil
refinery in Tehran in retaliation for
repeatead Iranian air strikes on
"economic and civilian targets." While
Tehran did not confirm the Iraqi raid,
Tehran Radio broadcast orders for
civilians to evacuate the area around
Tehran's airport.
IRAQ ANNOUNCED it had cut off all
oil exports. In Washington, however,
U.S. and foreign officials said the war
has had little effect on world oil sup-
plies. "At the moment, there is no
'reason for any drastic moves," said the
executive director of the International
Energy Agency.
President Carter, however, vowed
yesterday the United States and its
allies will do "whatever needs to be
done" to keep the vital Straits of Hor-
muz open to allow oil shipments to
reach the West despite the Iran-Iraq
And the president said if the straits
are closed and oil supplies\ cut off, an
agreement to share oil among the allies
would be triggered and voluntary and
mandatory conservation measures
would become necessary.

earlier that America is willing to host
an international conference to discuss
ways of making sure Middle East fuel
shipments are not blocked by the war.
"I've been in touch with the leaders
of our allied nations both in the Western
world and in some of the Islamic
nations directly concerned and
whatever is required to keep the strait
open will be done," said Carter.
But if the straits are cut off, said Car-
ter, the United Statess and its allies
"would all have to go to the people of
our own countries to encourage both
voluntary and to institute mandatory
conservation measures."
If that happens, Carter said, he would
have "no doubt . . . that our country
would suffer severely."

The University will comply with a
state senator's request and provide the
legislature with more detailed infor-
mation on the University athletic
department's budget, University Vice
President for State Relations Richard
Kennedy said yesterday.
State Sen. Bill Huffman (D-Madison
Heights), chairman of the Senate
higher education appropriations sub-
committee, challenged the financial
autonomy of the athletic department
Thursday and said his panel would not
approve several University building
projects until the legislature could
examine the athletic department's
budget in detail.
ACCORDING TO Kennedy, Huf-
fman's committee has already seen the
outline of the athletic budget that was
presented to the Regents this month. He
said the University would be glad to an-
swer any further questions about how
the athletic department spends its mon-
"The state has a right to know just
about anything we do," Kennedy said.

S budget
Unlike the athletic departments of
most schools, the University athletic
department is financially autonomous.
The money it earns-primarily through
ticket sales-can be spent as the depar-
tment pleases. The University, in turn,'
is not obligated to share any of its
revenues-which come from tuition,
the state, and private donors-with the
athletic department.
HUFFMAN challenged this relation-
ship Thursday and said he'd like to see
the athletic department use its
"generous" funds to help the finan-
cially-troubled University.
University Athletic Director Donald
Canham called Huffman's comments
"ridiculous." He accused the senator of
not doing his homework and said
yesterday that the information Huf-
fman wants "is all public record."
Although Huffman threatened to
withhold approval of several University
construction projects if he did not
receive the athletic budget data he
requested, the state's approval of the
projects is not required. One of the
projects-a $1.6 million athletic field
house-is nearly complete.

University President Harold Shapiro
said Thursday that Huffman has been
very supportive of the University in the
past and said he doesn't believe the
senator will threaten the development
of porjects such as the plan for the new
University Hospital.
Kennedy called Huffman's threats an
"unfortunate fallout" of the trying
times legislators are having with the
ailing state budget. like most state
legislators, Huffman is just
"beleagured and frustrated," Kennedy

council which will attempt to mediate an

Students examine tax proposals

Soviet to research
regeneration at 'U'

However bad relations between the
United States and the Soviet Union may
be, University exchange scholar
Anatoly Masyuk is living proof that the
two super powers can still cooperate in
some areas.
Masyuk came to the University three
weeks ago as part of a nine-month
scientific exchange program involving
American and Soviet scholars, spon-
sored by the International Research
and Exchange Group of New York.
MASYUK, WHO recently completed
his doctorate in biological sciences in
the Soviet Union, said he chose the
University over other comparable in-

stitutions because he wished to work
with University Professor of
Biochemistry Bernard Agranoff, who is
studying genetics, specifically
regeneration processes of nerve tissue.
In such research, according to a
research assistant in the neuroscience
program, scientists study the
regeneration processes of animals and
try to learn how to apply the process to
humans. The ultimate goal is for people
to be able to regenerate a limb just as a
lizard can grow back a tail if it loses
"Genetic research is being conducted
in the Soviet Union." Masvuk ex-

student is worried that his peers
might vote for the Tisch tax-cut
plan. They believe, he said, that a
reduction in property taxes will
bring more jobs to the severely
depressed Upper Peninsula.
But Steve Nystrom thinks his
friends will be making a big
'mistakes He wanted to know what to
tell them.
TELL THEM that their parents
might have to pay more in tuition
than they gain through property tax
cuts, suggested Marie Stevens, a
student affairs adminstrator at
Western Michigan University.
Nystrom's problem and Stevens'
response were just part of the ex-
change prompted yesterday by
discussion of several tax reform
plans at a statewide "student
leader" conference.
Almost 150 student government of-
ficials, leaders of campus groups,
student newspaper editors, and
student affairs administrators
gathered for the conference, held
yesterday at Eastern Michigan
University in Ypsilanti.
THEY CAME FROM each of the
state's four-year colleges and

hand, Atkinson quipped, "That's almost as good as the one
you get if you're a senior." QI
