IRANIANS SA Y 'WAIT AND SEE'

Release rumors persist

From UPI and AP
The Iranian Parliament geared
yesterday for. the start of its long-
awaited debate on the fate of the 52
American hostages Sunday amid a
flurry of conflicting rumors that the
.. captives' release might be im-
,rinent-or delayed indefinitely
Iranian officials, contacted by
telephone from.London, had only one
message on the eve of the debate. Wait
,,an~d see.
MEANWHILE, speculation that the
hostages might be released soon grew
.'steadily, despite the U.S. government's
statements urging caution against too
much optimism.
Campaigning in Grand Rapids,
President Carter also sought to dampen
speculation about the hostages' early
release, saying he had "no news" to
report on the 357th day of the
Americans' captivity in Iran.
Poll shows
Garter trails
Reagan in.
Michigan
DETROIT (UPI)-Ronald Reagan
h olds a 7 percent lead over President
$arter among Michigan voters,
drawing his strength from disaffected
bOeeocrats and economic woes in a
state regarded as crucial, a
newspaper's poll shows today.
In a copyrighted story in its Sunday
editions, the Detroit News said its sur-
vey of 690 adults across Michigan
revealed the Republican presidential
candidate is preferred by 3? percent of
state voters, with 30 percent supporting
Carter.
HOWEVER, THE News said, the poll
conducted during the first three weeks
of October found 15 percent remained
iipdecided-a factor that could be
,.Critical with 10 days left in the cam-
paign.
Citing possible late developments in
re Iran hostage situation and
{:Tuesday's presidential debate, the
N ews called the number- of undecided
" significant bloc that could add to
Reagan's lead or turn the election to
Vlr Carter."
But the News said Reagan may have
ue advantage, explaining that Carter
U ~ilst make up substantial ground ...
to turn around his resent position."

Secretary of State Edmund Muskie
also refused to give credence to the
speculation that the hostages might be
released soon. "We have no contacts,"
Muskie said. "We have no signal... We
have no message..
"THERE IS absolutely no foundation
for any report I have read in any
newspaper or heard on any radio
station," Muskie said in a CBS inter-
view in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Still, rumors and reports persisted
that Irani its war effort against Iraq
hurting for lack of spare parts blocked
by the U.S. millitary embargo, was get-
ting ready to free the hostages.
Pentagon analysts, however, believe
that Iran's severe financial problems,
rather than a dire need for American
military spare parts and equipment,
may be driving Iran's leadership
toward dickering for release of the
hostages.

AYATOLLAH Ruhollah Khomeini
last month set out Iran's basic deman-
ds: return of the late shah's fortune, a
pledge of U.S. non-interference in Iran,
unfreezing of Iranian assets in U.S.
banks, and withdrawal of all U.S. legal
claims against Iran.
In New York, Iranian special U.N.
envoy Ali Shams Ardakani predicted
the release, if terms are met, could
come anytime from five days after
Sunday's Majlis session to "Allah
knows" when. He also denied the
possible release was linked to rumored
resumption .of U.S. arms supplies to
Iran.
Other sources close to the Tehran
regime, reached by telephone, said
they "see no sign yet" that plans were
being readied for the release of the
hostages.
