Iran leaders stall
on hostage decision

United Press International
Iran's parliament met twice
yesterday to discuss terms for
releasing the 52 Americans held
hostage for almost a year, but the
closed-doorameetings failed to
produce any decision and
parliament adjourned until
tomorrow.
After the sessions, Tehran radio
said the United States is
"daydreaming" and "indulging in
wishful thinking" if it believes the
captives, held for 359 days, will be
freed soon or easily.
IRANIAN senior diplomatic sour-
ces said in Beirut that Iran will not
free the hostages until after the U.S.
elections-at the earliest-because
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini does
not want their release to benefit
either presidential candidate.
"Khomeini is neither pro-Carter
:nor pro-Reagan," the sources said.
"He does not want the hostage issue
to be decisive in the American elec-
tions. He does not care who wins."
Debate on the hostage issue began
Sunday, when the parliament im-
mediately voted to make its
deliberations secret. Nothing of sub-
stance about the debate has leaked
out since.
Tehran radio brushed aside
"rumors" of an "imminent release,,
for the hostages in a broadcast talk
titled "The United States and
Daydreaming."
"The USA does not know the real
position of Islamic Iran, which is
that we will not hand over any of the
hostages unless the United States
accedes to the demands of the
Islamic revolutionand to the
Imam's (Khomeini's) decision," the
broadcast said.

"Although a year has passed since
their detention, the USA and world
imperialism are unable to find any
solution to the problem which has
crushed their arrogance and
humiliated them," the broadcast
said.
"THEIR HORDES of journalists
and news correspondents have left
for Germany on the basis of a rumor
that Iran would release the U.S.
spies and repatriate them through
Germany.
"This is the rumor with which they
want to gratify themselves. The USA
does not know the real position of
Islamic Iran, which is that we will
not hand over any of the hostages
unless the United States accedes to
the demands of the Islamic
revolution and to the imam's
decision."
"This is an established fact which
cannot change," Tehran said.
SINCE TODAY is a Shiite Moslem
holiday, parliament decided not to
meet again until tomorrow when its
session presumably again will be
secret, Pars said.
An "open session" is scheduled for
Thursday.
The four conditions set by
Khomeini for release of the hostages
are: return of the shah's wealth; un-
freezing of more than $8 billion of
Iranian assets in American banks;
U.S. pledge not to interfere in
Iranian affairs; a U.S. promise not
to make any claims against Iran as a
result of the hostage issue.
In Beirut, Iranian diplomatic
sources said Khomeini now favors
the release of the hostages-after
the election-because they are no
longer useful for him in domestic
Iranian politics.

VATICAN CITY-Pope John Paul II
yesterday attacked "irresponsible"
medical research and warned of
dangers posed. by organ transplants,
genetic experimentation, artificial in-
semination, birth and fertility controls,
and new drugs.
The Vatican has consistently con-
demned artificial insemination and ar-
tificial birth control but the pontiff's
speech to members of the Italian
Society of Internal Medicine and
Surgery marked John Paul's first con-
demnation of genetic engineering and
organ transplants.
IN A MAJOR speech on medical
ethics, the pontiff called for greater
discipline on the part of the medical
profession and offered his idea of a
sound doctor-patient relationship.
Addressing 2,700 doctors in a special
Vatican audience, the pope said there
are "alarmed voices" denouncing the
harmful effects of "a medicine that
cares more for itself than for man
whom it must serve."
"The tragic example of Thalidomide is
a proof," the pope said, referring to the
drug used as a sedative and later ban-
ned after being found to be responsible
for severe birth deformities when taken
during pregnancy.
THE DRUG, developed by a West
German company, was marketed bet-

ween 1958 and 1961. There were an
estimated 8,000 Thalidomide victims,
many born without arms or legs,
throughout the world. The company has
paid almost $60 million in compen-
sations to some 400 British victims
alone.
THE POPE SAID new medical
research with risks of harming "man's
right to life" and "functional integrity"
must not be considered lawful.
"Clinical and pharmacological ex-
periments cannot be started without
taking all the precautions to guarantee
they are harmless," he said.
"The pre-clinical research,
therefore, must supply the most ample
pharmacological and toxicological
documentation on safety."

Another drawback of such a plan,
S ACUA Vice-chairman Morton Brown
pointed out, is that the programs with
less persuasive deans might be hardest
hit, even in crucial areas. Cuts made in
Wis fashion may not be a function of
what the college or the University
needs, he said.
AN ALTERNATIVE to a cen-
tralized review committee would be to
hate the President of the University
and the Vice-President for Academic
Affairs decide where to cut or eliminate
pro grams, Naylor said.
1ACUA Vice-chairman Morton
Brawn said it would be easier for a
faculty committee to make cuts than
4 or the administration.
Prof. John Romani suggested a
committee of five distinguished faculty
members could be selected to work
with. the President and Vice-President
for Academic Affairs on the process of
redirection. It would be important,
Romani said, that these professors
"have no particular axe to grind, but
are generally respected in the Univer-
sits."
SNaylor said there was always the
possibility that the administration
might view such a committee as
useless, and would refer to SACUA and
other already existing committees to
help them decide where to make cuts.
NAYLOR ALSO suggested the
revival of a budget priority fund to help
determine ways to reduce the size of the
University. According to this plan,
money collected through a one percent
tax on each department's general fund
was reinvested in other parts of the
*University. But redirecting funds in
this way, programs could be phased
out; departments that were taxed but

everything else that is played on the
mostly boring commercial "rock"
radio stations.
The broad scale appeal of The B-52's
is proof that the change is coming.
There were hundreds of lighters and
matches lit in tribute to The B-52's at
Masonic. Held by the same hands that
only recently were raised for Rush and
Aerosmith, this may mean that you
may soon be hearing your favorite
modern pop group on the radio in lieu of
endless Van Halen tracks and 12 year
old Doors tunes. When you finally hear

stealth and wit.

eductions
not given any of the reallocation funds
eventually would be unable to survive
financially, Naylor explained.
Currently there is a budget priorities
committee which is primarily concer-
ned with the financial value of the
various departments to the University,
according to Brown. But this commit-
tee has been fairly inactive in assessing
which departments bring more funds in-
to the University, he said.
Gordon suggested a committee con-
cerned with only the academic con-
tributions of the different programs and
a budget priorities committee could
work together on a retrenchment plan.
This would be more effective than one
committee whose members would have
to know about both academic and
financial aspects, he said.
