he said to applause from the en-

nationalization of railroads in the

He also warned corporate leaders that

He said the country cannot survive a

country depends upon survival.
"Nuclear war is incapable of defending
the country and it should be abolished,"
he explained.

student estimated that there are ap-
proximately five honors anthropology
But because each honors degree can-
didate must have a faculty member for
a thesis advisor, some departments
must maintain fairly rigid standards in
order to avoid enrolling more students
in the program than the department
can accommodate.
Two of the more popular programs,
economics and political science, have
minimum grade average requirements
substantially above those of the Honors

Council. Students wishing to prepare
honors theses in psychology must fill
out a formal application which includes
a transcript and SAT scores.
Even within some departments
requirements for admission to the
honors programs vary depending on
who heads the program in a given year.
In several departments, the head of the
honors concentration has held that
position for less than one year.
As it stands, Morrow indicated that
the proposal is a long way from
becoming policy. "It certainly won't af-
fect anyone next year," she said.

Iraqi tanks attack Abadan
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Abadan's battered garrison beat back Iraqi tank
assaults yesterday on the Iranian city's main gate at the Bahmanshir River
bridge, Iran said. But Iraqi forces pressed the attack and hurled mortar
barrages at the oil refining center.
Irasq said its tank forces were hammering at Abadan and Baghdad
radio claimed 38 Iranians were killed in Abadan and in house-to-house
fighting in the oil port of Khorramshahr, 10 miles to the north.
Iraq appeared to be throwing its main weight into the siege of Abadan
and Khorramshahr. Capture of the two cities would give Iraq control of the.
Shatt al-Arab waterway that before the war served both countries as the
main oil shipping route.
Iranian communiques insisted that although Abadan was repeatedly at-
tacked by Iraqi tank columns and hit by intense mortar fire, the city's
defenders were maintaining resistance. Iran has admitted, however, that
the defenders needed reinforcements.
Iran rejects hostage deal
LONDON-Iran's fundamentalist leadership yesterday rejected Presi-
dent Carter's offer to lift the arms embargo against Tehran if the 52
American hostages are released, Tehran Radio said.
The radio, monitored in London by the BBC, said Prime Minister
Mohammad Ali Rajai met with Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, after which it
was "stressed that negotiations would not be considered, even though there
might be offers, for example, of spare parts."
The ending of the embargo would unfreeze $8 billion in Iranian assets in
American and European banks, and make it possible for Iran to get spare
parts for its U.S.-made military machine.
American cited as leader
of bomb plots in Manila
MANILA, Philippines-President Ferdinand Marcos accused an
American held in detention here of masterminding a bomb campaign to
overthrow him.
Maracos, 63, told reporters he had interrogated Victor Lovely Jr. a
Philippine-born American arrested last month in concection with the bom-
bings, and that he concluded LIovely had directed "a conspiracy .. . to
destabilize the government through terrorism."
On Monday, Marcosordered the arrest of nine opposition leaders and 21
other people for alleged involvement in the bombings. There have been five
bomb attacks in Manila since August.
The alleged plot involves bombing public places, killing civilians, and
"assassination of high ranking civilian and military officers, including the
president," Marcos said.
Attack on black man-
linked to Buffalo slayings
BUFFALO, N.Y.-Police searching for the killer of six black men
yesterday questioned a seventh black man who was attacked in his hospital
bed by a white man matching the description of a suspect in four of the
Erie County District Attorney Edward Cosgrove said police had begun
questioning of Collin Col, 37, at the Erie County Medical Center where a
white man tried to strangle him Oct. 10 while he was recovering from a drug
"He has been able to pass some written notes" to investigators,
Cosgrove said, adding Cole's speaking ability was severely limited due to the
neck injuries he suffered. Cosgrove refused to disclose any information Cole
may have provided.
Authorities believe Cole's attacker was the same man who used a .22-
caliber gun to kill four of the six blacks in SpteMkr. Lawien have
distributed sketches of a white suspect based on descriptions from witnesses
to the shootings and the attack on Cole.
Gov't predicts next decade
will strain nation's airways
WASHINGTON-Massive infusions of federal funds will be needed in
the 1980s to keep up with growing demands on the nation's already strained
airspace system, a government report predicted yesterday.
In its annual forecast. the Federal Aviation Administration frecast
airline passenger traffic will soon recover from its poor 1980 showing, with
a "relatively stable, moderate growth rate," expected through 1992.
Even faster growth is predicted for commuter airline operations and for
private business aviation, resulting in a corresponding rise in the demand
for FAA services.
Husband's testimony reveals
affair with ax murderer
McKINNEY, Texas-The husband of a murder victim said yesterday in
opening testimony that he had an 11-month affair with the woman accused of
killing his wife with 15 blows of an ax.
Candace Montgomery, of the nearby town of Wylie has pleaded in-
nocent to a charge of murder, claiming she killed her longtime friend and
neighbor, Betty Gore, in the Gores' home in self defense.

Defense lawyer Don Crowder said Montgomery intends to testify in her
own defense, and commented, "We have quite a story to tell."
"I considered not saying a word about it," Crowder said of the admission
that his client killed Gore. "But the worst thing we could have done is let
them (jurors) think we were hiding something from them."
