Status of hostages
From The Associated Press
A prominent member of Iran's Par-
liament, Sayed Mohammad Khamenei,
said yesterday it was entirely up to the
United States to resolve outstanding
questions dealing with the American
hostages. He said some "could be
resolved within 24 hours," but others
may take months.
There was no indication of any
change in the status of the hostages,
whose militant captors have given
authority for the Americans to the
Iranian government. A government
spokesperson has said that despite this,
the militants would keep the prisoners
in custody until the United States com-
plied with Iran's terms.
AT THE WHITE House, press
secretary Jody Powell said the matter
of the hostages is "being pursued
aggressively, and, I think you can
assume, privately," but a
breakthrough did not appear imminent.
Ronald Reagan, whose victory in
Tuesday's presidential election prom-
pted one Iranian official to predict a
delay in solving the hostage crisis, said
in a press conference yesterday "we
are not going to intrude" on hostage
"FOREIGN LEADERS must be
aware that the president is still the
president," said Reagan.
Prime minister Mohammad Ali Rajai
said "the arrival of Reagan and the
departure of President Carter are of lit-
tle importance to us," according to the
official Iranian news agency Pars.
then the world's going ca*l1
It happened to secretaries first. Then lawyers, bookkeepers, waitresses ,
cabbies, housewives, and businessmen succumbed to the beauty of our
Pilot Razor Point and Fineliner pens.
Some people felt it was sick to get so emotionally involved with our
pens. But is it really so crazy to love a Pilot Razor Point pen that writes with
a sharp smooth line and costs a mere 79C? Is it nuts to flip over its unique
little metal collar that smartly helps to keep its point from going squish?
If it is crazy, it's going to surprise a whole lot of people. In fact, we
understand that Pilot Razor Point even has what it takes to score extra
points with football players.
It also comes to our attention that many
coaches are fans of the Pilot Fineliner.
Along with all the other Razor
PMint features, the 690
Pilot Fineliner has
the strength and'
drive to go through carbons.
It's hard to resist a pen
that holds the line like a Pilot. finfine makwp*m

Tisch considers bid
for another election
LANSING-A determined Robert Tisch said yesterday he might ask
the courts to order a new vote on his unsuccessful 50 percent tax cut amen-
dment, but conceded it would be a long-shot bid.
The Shiawassee County drain commissioner said the move could be
based on his argument that Gov. William Milliken conducted a misleading
campaign against Proposal D at the public expense.
The legal maneuver might come as an offshoot of a Tisch suit filed
against Milliken last week. Tisch said it is likely he will pursue that suit
despite an initial setback in court.
The tax cut crusader also said he might seek a recount in some districts
of votes on Proposal D, which was rejected in Tuesday's election by a 56 per-
cent to 44 percent margin.
Five detectives join search
for Atlanta child killer
ATLANTA-Atlanta police have called in five elite, street-wise detec-
tives from across the nation to help investigate the baffling slayings and
disappearances of 15 black children.
Meanwhile, in Washington, the FBI said it was opening a preliminary
investigation to determine whether the four missing children are being held
in violation of federal kidnapping laws.
"To our knowledge this is the first time a police agency has tapped other
police agencies" for assistance, Public Safety Commissioner Lee Brown
said at a press conference yesterday.
Banks boost prime rate
NEW YORK-The nation's banks yesterday raised their prime lending
rates by one full percentage point to 15.5 percent in the biggest one-day in-
crease in more than a year.
The jump came as no surprise on Wall Street, where analysts attributed
the increase to the banks' rising cost of funds. A
Prosecutors wind up 21-week
Ku Klux Klan murder trial
GREENSBORO-Wrapping up a 21-week trial, prosecutors gave their
last and most earnest arguments yesterday on whether six Ku Klux Klan
and Nazi followers should be put to death for their roles in the fatal shootings
of five leftists more than a year ago.
The prosecutors argued against defense contentions that the accused
were acting in self-defense during an 88-second battle with sticks and guns
between the two extremists groups at a "Death to the Klan Rally" sponsored
by the Communist Workers Party.
Sunshine silver mine strike
stretches into eighh month
KELLOGG, Idaho-Another bitter strike at the richest silver mine in
the United States has stretched into its eighth month with 550 union miners
refusing to go back down the mile-deep shaft until their demands are met.
Tempers flared anew this week after the Sunshine Mining Co. began
hiring non-union employees at the mine in northern Idaho's Silver Valley
which, since 1904 has produced 300 million ounces of silver-worth $3 billion
at today's prices.
Iran, Iraq claim fierce
fighting at Abadan, Dezful
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Iraq pounded Iran's southwestern stronghold of
Abadan with morars and artillery yesterday, the 46th day of the Persian
Gulf war, and Iran claimed counter-attacks against Iraqi-held Iranian
territory there and farther north along the 300-mile front.
Iran claimed its "soldiers of Islam" fought a fierce battle along the
Abadan-Mashahr Road about two miles east of Abadan, and that the army is
leaving the ground "littered with Iraqi dead."
Abadan is Iran's last stronghold on the disputed Shatt al-Arab estuary
and before the war provided two-thirds of its petroleum needs. Its capture
would give Iraq complete control of the Shatt al-Arab, part of the pre-war
border between the two nations and Iraq's only waterway to the gulf.
