BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)-The speaker of Iran's Parlia-
ment said yesterday that the parliament will decide in the
"next two or three days" on conditions for release of the 52
C oo U.S. hostages and that he thinks it unlikely the Americans
will be tried as spies.
Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini, meanwhile, agreed to allow a war mediation
a se committee of Islamic heads of state to visit Iran, Tehran
Khomeini stipulated the group was to be confined to "in-
vestigating the criminal invasion" he said was ordered by
h o sta g es Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, according to the radio. But
acceptance of the delegation, even on a conditional basis,
was seen as a small step toward solution of the four-week-old
Iran-Iraq war.
In a telephone interview from Tehran with The Associated
Press here, speaker Hashemi Rafsanjani said the war was
not affecting the hostages, who have been held since Nov. 4,
and that he thought the conditions for their release would be

the same as those stated earlier by Khomeini.
THE MAJLIS, EMPOWERED by Khomeini to decide
the fate of the hostages, "will in the next few days announce
its decision," Rafsanjani said.
Asked if an apology would be necessary, Rafsanjani said,
"You know how the Majiis is. Maybe the majorit will want
it, or maybe not. Don't worry, it will be known in the next two
or three days."
Although some members of Parliament have called for
spy trials for at least some of the hostages, the speaker said
he thought it would be "a very remote possibility." The
militants who seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran nearly a
year ago called it a "spy nest" and they threatened to, try the
hostages as spies.
Observers in the United States considered as a possible
new condition remarks made in New York Saturday by
Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Ali Rajai, who sought
removal of U.S. radar planes from Saudi Arabia.

FDA asks tampon warnig
WASHINGTON-The Food and Drug Adminsitration yesterday
proposed all tampon products be labeled to warn women not to use them if
they want to eliminate the risk of a rare but sometimes fatal disease.
The illness-toxic shock syndrome-has been linked to 30 deaths in
recent years, although it is believed to occur in only three of every 100,000
menstruating women each year.

WASHINGTON-The laetrile
movement received a serious setback
yesterday when the Supreme Court let
stand a ruling the drug cannot be
"grandfathered" into general use as a
cancer treatment.
In other action, an Illinois woman
narrowly lost her bid for a high court
review of a decision denying her
custody of her children because she
lives with a man who is not her
THE JUSTICES refused to disturb a
federal appeals court ruling that
laetrile, extracted from apricot pits and
other kernels, did not qualify for an
exemption under 1962 drug act amen-
Those amendments say drugs in
general use as safe and effective
remedies before 1962 do not need to
meet current Food and Drug Ad-
ministration standards.
The court left intact a federal appeals
court ruling that terminal cancer
patients have no constitutional right to
use laetrile and that the federal gover-

nment is free to ban the controversial
substance. While not a definitive ruling
on the merits of laetrile, the eourt's ac-
tion has the effect of continuing to make
it illegal for interstate use in the United
IN JUNE 1979, the Supreme Court
upheld the federal government's
authority to ban distribution of laetrile,
reversing a lower-court decision
allowing terminally ill cancer paitents
to obtain the substance, which can be
made chemically and is also known as
Although FDA officials say laetrile
has no value as a cancer cure, the
National Cancer Institute last July
began clinical testing of it on patients.
Depending on the results, not expected
until next year, the government could
approve interstate use of laetrile.
An estimated 70,000 Americans have
used laetrile and 21 states have
legalized it.
FOLLOWING THE Supreme Court's
1979 ruling, the Denver appeals court
said there had not been sufficient
research and laboratory testing to
quality laetrile for general use, and that
the substance did not meet all the gran-
dfathering requirements.
In another case decided yesterday,
the justices, by a 6-3 vote, decided not to
hear Jacqueline Jarret's challenge to
an Illinois court decision that ruled her
living arrangement threatens the up-
bringing of her three daughters.
Jarrett claimed that the state's for-
nication law violated her constitutional
right of equal protection.
Justice Wiliam Brennan, writing for
the dissenters, said the case raised an
important social issue.

MANILA, Philippines-President Ferdinand Marcos yesterday order-
ed the arrest of 30 dissidents, including a U.S. businessman and nine op-
position leaders, in response to the most recent terrorist bombings
protesting his martial law regime in Manila.
The action came after an explosion Sunday at the 58th annua anniver-
say congress of the American Society of Travel Agents. Thirteen people
were injured in the blast, including seven Americans.
Atlanta officials seek clues
in murders of 10-children
ATLANTA-Squads of firefighters and police officers worked slowly
from door to door in four Atlanta neighborhoods yesterday asking residents
for the "one little lead" that might help solve the slayings of 10 black
children in the last 15 months.
About 50 officers and firefighters in four southside precincts began the
canvas yesterday morning in an effort which city officials say eventually
may involve 500 public safety personnel.
Sources say Uganda seeking
Cuban aid to train troops
KAMPALA, Uganda-Sources close to Uganda's military government
say it is seeking Cuban soldiers from Ethiopia to train the Ugandan army,
which reportedly is badly in need of discipline.
The sources, who have been reliable in the past, said in weekend inter-
views that a limited number of Cubans would not replace the 10,000 Tan-
zanian troops who make up the country's strongest military force 18 months
after Tanzania ousted dictator Idi Amin.
Hearst gets new hearing
SAN FRANCISCO-Newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst Shaw is
entitled toa new hearing on a robbery conviction, and it might be a good idea
to look into the conduct of her attorney; a federal court ruled yesterday.
Shaw, the former Symbionese Liberation Army fugitive argued that her
rights were violated because defense attorney F. Lee Bailey spent much of
his time negotiating publication rights to her story instead of working on her
"Bailey's potential conflict of interest is virtually admitte'd," the 9th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling.

Mount St. Helens brewing
VANCOUVER, Wash.-Molten rock rising from the earth's fiery
interior yesterday sent volcanic shocks rumbling through the 1 -mile-wide
crater floor of Mount St. Helens.
The underground pulsations accompanied the growth of a dome of lava
welling up out of a circular hole at the center of the 3,000-foot-deep crater,
the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The swelling plugged the malor escape route of gases and steam hissing
out of the volcano, giving Mount St. Helens a deadily, bomb-like potential,
USGS scientists said.
