Iraq threatens to escalate war;
Iranians told to evacuate cities

IN BRIEF

BAGHDAD, Iraq (UPI)-Iraq threatened yester-
day to escalate the 19-day Persian Gulf war with
Soviet-supplied missiles and bluntly warned residen-
ts of the Iranian oil centers of Ahvaz and Dizful to
"leave your cities immediately."
The warning, in a Persian-language broadcast to
Iran from Iraqi radio yesterday eveping, raised the
specter that both sides would introduce more
sophisticated weaponry in their multibillion-dollar
arsenals.
IT ALSO CAME at the same time U.N. Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim urged both countries to
declare a local cease-fire to allow foreign ships to
evacuate the northern end of the Persian Gulf.
Iran appeared to take the Iraqi threat seriously. In
a broadcast two hours after it aired, Tehran Radio

warned residents of Khurramshahr, Abadan, Ahvaz,
Dizful, and two other towns: "There is a possibility of
Iraqi air raids and the use of medium-range
missiles."
It said Iranian forces were "taking the necessary
precautions in Kuzistan's airspace" and called on
residents to stay off the streets and "make use of
strong cellars."
ON THE GROUND, Iranian and Iraqi tanks and in-
fantry battled in the streets of the key oil port city of
Khurramshahr yesterday and both countries laun-
ched deadly air raids deep into each other's territory..
I)izful, a key garrison town and oil pumping station
in the central front, became the target of the war's
first missile attack Wednesday. Iran said more than
100 civilians died and 300 were injured by four "giant

rockets," which Western analysts say were either
Soviet-made Scud or Frog-7 missiles.
The broadcast, monitored by the BBC in London,
was directed to Ahvaz and Dizful in particular and
said: '
"In order not to be harmed by surface-to-surface
missiles and to be safe from heavy bombs dropped by
aircraft which have not been used so far, leave your
cities immediately."
Dizful and Ahvaz are the two key cities in the
war's central front, the heart of Iran's oil-producing
Khuzistan province.
If Iraq can cut the oil jugular from the region to the
rest of Iran, some Western analysts believe, Tehran
could be brought to its knees as its war machine runs
out of fuel.

Two Americans, Frenchman
win Nobel Prize in Medicine
STOCKHOLM, Sweden-Two Americans and a Frenchman won the 1980
Nobel Prize in Medicine yesterday for discoveries that have led to a better
understanding of the way the human body accepts organ transplants and
combats cancer and other diseases.
The Royal Caroline Institute of Medicine cited 76-year-old George Snell
of Bar Harbor, Maine; 59-year-old Harvard Prof. Baruj Benacerraf, and 63-
year-old French blood specialist Jean Dausset, for their work on genetically
determined structures on the cell surface which regulate immunological
reactions.
The three scientists' work centered on the study of genes in the human-
cell structure, determining cell differences and their susceptibility to virus
infection, and cancerous growth.
Gang of-4 prepares for trial
PEKING-Special prosecutors are questioning the Gang of Four
almost daily in preparation for the formal trial of Mao Tse-tung's widow and
her three co-defendants, the Japanese Kyodo news agency said yesterday.
Mao's widow Jiang Qin and her colleagues Zhang Chunquio, Yao
Wenyuan, and Wang Hongwen, are accused of trying to overthrow the
government through an armed uprising and set up a "fascist" dictatorship.
Conviction is punishable by death.
The gang was blamed for carrying the Cultural Revolution to extremes
and using its proximity to Mao Tse-tung, the late Communist party chair-
man, to persecute large numbers of political and personal enemies.
. They have also been blamed for practically everything that has gone
wrong in China since their arrest Oct. 6, 1976.

HIGHER DRINKING AGE CITED

Area liquor sale

(Continued from Page 1)
bar lost about 30 percent of its
business after the higher drinking
age went into effect.
"We used to be packed five nights
a week. Now we are only really busy
on Mondays, Fridays,: and Sa'tur-
days," Mills said, adding that the
drop-off in business has forced him
to cut his staff 30 percent and close
the kitchen three nights a week.
Customer identification cards are
checked by personnel stationed at
the door of Dooley's, where hand
stamps are issued to those.over 21.
Bartender Kathy Reusch said jpar-
tenders and waitresses check
customers at; the bar for the hand
stamps.,
Reusch added that Dooley's is
unable to stop those under 21 from
drinking at the bar because they of-
ten have friends who purchase
drinks for them.
Over on South University Street,
Rick's American Cafe maqager
Karl Mobley said although his bar
was not open before the drinking age

was raised, he feels the "21" lawhas
limited potential sales. "I know
there are a lot of people who aren't
21 who would like to party," said
Mobley.
Marshall's Liquor Store on State.
St. did not lose much business when
the drinking age was raised. "They.
(those under 21) always manage to
buy," or have a friend who can buy
alcohol for them, manager Barb
Miklos explained.
"We also sell a lot of kegs for
house parties," she added. On a
typical weekend, Miklos estimated
30 kegs are purchased.
The 21-year-old, drinking age af-
fected restaurants with liquor licen-
ses even less than bars. At Thano's
Lamplighter, on Liberty Street
manager Peter Mirageas pointed
out, "People come to the Lam-
plighter for pizza."
"People do like to have a pitcher
of beer with their pizza," he added,
but "we card everybody."
At the Brown Jug restaurant,
manager George Farom explained,

"We're not really a bar business."
He estimated that liquor sales con-
stitute only 15-20 percent of the
restaurant's business.
Managers of bars located farther
from campus said they noticed very
little effect from the change in the
drinking age since they depend less
on students as customers.
"We lost business but it wasn't too
bad,'' said Tony Mathis, manager at
Bimbo's on Washington Street. "We
attract older people."
Bar managers ofi he west side of
Ann Arbor said their bars also at-
tract an older clientele and the
change in the drinking age did not
effect their business much. At Old
Towne, assistant manager and bar-
tender Susan ILamar said, "We get a
lot of working class people, 21 year
old students, University employees
and professors, so it did not affect
our business too much."
Manager Julie Black at the Del
Rio, concurred. "We are a neigh-
borhood bar more than a student
bar," she said.

Drinking
proposal
outcome
uncertain
(Continued from age 1
Rice. In announcing his support of
,Proposal B earlier this month,
Secretary of State Richard Austin said.
"We have examined the first full year
of accident statistics since the drinking
age was raised to 21. Nothing in these
new statistics leads me to change my
position (against raising the age) of two
years ago."
Austin said that fewer than two per
cent of all 18- to 20-year-old drivers
have accidents related to alcohol. State
Rep. Richard Fitzpatrick (D-Battle
Creek), chairman of Nineteen is Fair,,
added "Are we going to punish the
other 98 percent for the sins of a few?"
Beyond the statistical arguments,
Proposal B proponents find they must
employ the argument of fairness to 19
year olds to sway people to support the
proposal.
BASED ON A Spring, 1980 poll by
Nineteen is Fair-then called Citizens
for a Fair Drinking Age-a majority of
voters initially oppose the proposal, but
after being presented with a .fairness
argument, change their minds.
.The fairness points most often cited
by Proposal B supporters include the
facts that 19 and 20 year olds are legally
of the age of majority, can vote,marry,
be drafted, and can accept other
responsibilities of adults.
Rice said he does not believe the
question of a lower drinking age is a
fairness or rights issue. He said legal
drinking is a privilege that has been
taken away from 19 and 2 year olds for
"six years of abuse"-the time people
of this age group could legally drink in
Michigan.
NINETEEN IS FAIR representatives
are now working to canvass areas of the
state in which they feel there is little
support for their position. They are also
producing television and radio com-
mercials for their campaign.
Proposal B has received a long list of
endorsements from state officials and
organizations, including Governor
William Milliken; Secretary of State
Austin; Thomas Schweigert, chairman
of the Michigan Liquor Control Com-
mission; and State Rep. Casmer
Ogonowski (D-Detroit), chairman of
the House Liquor Control Commission.
Milliken, who supported lowering the
age of majority to 18 in 1972, believes
the legal drinking age should be 19 to
keep alcohol out of the high schools, but
no higher. In coming out in support of
Proposal B, he stated 19 and 20 year
olds are "mature and responsible"
enough to be able to drink.
KENNETH EATON, administrator
for the Office of Substance Abuse Ser-
vices, also endorses passage of
Proposal B. A spokesperson for the of-
fice said it does not intend to persuade
residents to votea.certain way.
The public information director for
the Office of Substance Abuse Services,
Ken Corbett, said passage "will
ultimately solve the problem" of
alcohol among many young people.
Legal drinking "creates a better
climate for dealing with individuals
with a problem," he said. Corbett .ad-
ded it is difficult to counsel people if
they do their drinking "underground."

In January the State Board of
Education came out in favor of a
drinking age at 19. The Board based its
support on the fact that most 19 year
olds are out of high school and would
have no affect on drinking in the
schools, according to Craig Carter, a

racial killings
BUFFALO, N.Y.-Police investigating the slayings of six black men
in the Buffalo area, including two whose hearts were cut outreported more
attacks on whites yesterday on the city's tense East Side.
In one incident, two black men posing as narcotics agents stopped a
white couple in a car and fired a shot at them when they drove off. The
couple escaped injury.
"The paranoia on the East Side is very widespread," said Police Officer
Larry Baehre. "The tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife. It is
probably not prudent for whites to wander into the black neighborhoods at
night right now until this killer is caught."
Thatcher firm on
economic plan
BRIGHTON, England-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, pledging
to stick to her tough economic policies, received a rapturous reception
yesterday from merhbers of her ruling Conservative Party. A demonstrator
protesting soaring unemployment broke through heavy police security at the
conference hall and shouted an obscenity at her from 10 feet away.
The conference produced a huge display of party unity and support for
Thatcher's harsh policy of limiting the supply of money in order to control
the economy, despite the nearly doubling of the number of unemployed to
more than 2 million-8.4 percent of the work force-and the rising bankrup,
tcies since she ousted the Labor administration 17 months ago.
Party workers grabbed two young men who broke into the hall from
separate entrances shouting, "Right to work," and hustled them out. The
demonstrator who got to within 10 feet of Thatcher was grabbed by party
members and turned over to police. Thatcher appeared unruffled.
'Carter settles Indian claims
President Carter's signature with a feather pen yesterday resolved
Indian claims to two-thirds of Maine by authorizing an $81.5 million set-
tlement package worked out to resolve a seven-year stalemate.
The deal-the largest the federal government has ever made to resolve
Indian claims-includes a $27 million trust fund and money to buy 300,000
acres of land.
The Penobscot and Passamaquoddy Indian tribes claimed 12.5 million
acres were taken from them over 150 years ago against ft 1970 federal Non-
Intercourse Act, which barred states or white settlers from acquiring Indian
lands without approval from Congress. The tribes say such approval never
was granted.
France moves to
counter anti-Semitism
PARIS-Schoolmasters lectured children on racial tolerance, officials
met with Jewish leaders, and police hunted for anti-Jewish extremists
yesterday in the wake of anti-Semitic violence. A poll showed one in every
eight French citizens harbors some anti-Jewish feelings.
Special evening Sabbath observances were scheduled yesterday at the
Paris synagogue where a bomb exploded in the street during services last
week, killing four persons and touching off a national outcry against anti-
Semitic groups.
A Louis Harris poll conducted three days after the bombing showed that
one of every eight French citizens interviewed said they thought too many
Jews live in France, which has a population of 55 million. The country has
700,000 Jews, most of whom are French citizens.

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?"
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

This question is from the opening words of The Second
Psalm, God Almighty's Book, The Bible. In the first Psalm
God says: "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the
counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sin-
ners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful; but his delight
Is in The Law of The Lord; and in His Law doth he meditate
day and night." If you have not been blessed of God, that
is, above the blessings common to all His creatures and
animals, you might find the reason here by considering
...hak .s . hs a d alih .. n..ti Allv iftal I

God. The Son came down from heal n, was born of a
virgin, and took upon Himself man's judgement, paid the
penalty - death, raised himself back to life, and before
ascending back to heaven spent forty days revealing Him-
self to chosen witnesses, hundreds of them - many of
whose names appear to be imperishable having endured
through the centuries. (How long, Mr. Scripture-corrupter,
Dr. Modernist, do you think your name and false teaching
will endure?-"But the Word of our God endureth forever.")
