reply to hostage
release demands

From AP and UPI
ALGIERS, Algeria - U.S. diplomats
delivered ,to Algerian mediators
yesterday the formal American
response to Iran's conditions for the
release of the 52 American hostages
held by Iranian militants for more than
a year.
The reply, termed "positive" by a
U.S. official in Washington, was presen-
ted by Deputy Secretary of State
Warren Christopher to Algeria's
foreign minister for relay to Iran.-
DETAILS OF the American response
were kept secret, but the'Washington
official said the message contained a
pledge of non-interference in Iran's in-
ternal affairs and'an explanation of the
legal and financial difficulties in
meeting the other terms.
State Department spokesman John
Trattner said the.department hopes the
U.S. reply will mark the beginning of
negotiations for the hostages' release.
Trattner said Christopher - leading
a team of other top-level U.S. diplomats
- carried a written American response
approved by the White House last
weekend.
MEANWHILE, IN Iran, President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr was quoted by
Tehran radio as saying if the hostage
crisis is resolved in a week, a resum-
ption of arms supplies would help his
country in its war with Iraq. "But, if it
takes more time, then it won't have
much effect," he added.
Washington has said in the past that
U.S. arms, already purchased by Iran
but blocked when diplomatic relations
were severed, could be shipped to the
Persian Gulf nation if all the hostages
are freed.
Iran's Pars news agency reported
that Hashemi Rafsanjani, speaker of
the Iranian Parliament, told a press
conference it "is now up to the United
States to prove to the world that it has
been working for the release of the
AP Photo hostages. The United States should not
expect any other move from our side."
to was CHRISTOPHER AND the diplomatic
to wasteam arrived in this North African
a huge countryaboard a special Air Force
plane, conferred with U.S. Ambassador

Ulrich Haynes, and then delivered the
documents to Algerian Foreign
Minister Mohamed Benyahia.
Algeria has been acting as an inter-
mediary between the U.S. and Iran sin-
ce diplomatic relations between the
two countries were broken.
It was not known if any Iranian of-
ficials were in Algeria, and State
Department officials in Washington
said it is unlikely Christopher would
meet with Iranian authorities. The of-
ficials said, however, that the U.S.
remains willing to meet in face-to-face
talks.
CHRISTOPHER CONFERRED with
Benyahia behind closed doors for more
than an hour yesterday. The text of the
American reply was expected to be
relayed to Iranian officials within
hours.
A U.S. Embassy spokesman said
Christopher delivered the reply per-
sonally "to explain to the government
of Algeria several complex legal and

Iranian official says
Ghotbzadeh released

From The Associated Press -
ROME-An official of the Iranian
Embassy in Rome said yesterday for-
mer Iranian Foreign Minister Sadegh
Ghotbzadeh has been released from
prison but the revolutionary prosecutor
in Tehran indicated Ghotbzadeh is still
in custody.
Ghotbzadeh was arrested last week
by revolutionary guards after
criticizing the Iranian media and the
militant students holding the American'
hostages in a television speech in Iran.
THE EMBASSY official said the
Islamic revolutionary court ordered
Ghotbzadeh freed from Evin Prison,
located on the outskirts of Tehran. The
official said he had been given no fur-
ther details.

The prosecutor, Hojatolislam Ali
Qoddusi, however, would not confirm
the report and continued to assert that
Ghotbzadeh had "done something
wrong."
Qoddusi said Ghotbzadeh hindered
the Iranian war effort by charging the
Iranian media with "lies." "At a time
when the people should with complete
self-sacrifice send their children and
their property to the battlefronts, if
someone says all that you hear are lies,
does this not mean: People, don't send
them?
"If one day he is set free, and perhaps
we may be forced-by certain issues I
cannot discuss-to set them free, then
the people will complain," Qoddusi
said.

By CLAUDIA CENTOMINI
It's 9nly a 'question of time until the University
establ shes a federally-required transportation
system for the handicapped.
But the length of time until the project is completed
remains an unanswered question.
TOM MOOREHEAD, University director of Com-
munity Services, explained that the University has
snot complied with the law because it is low on funds.
He said the University hopes to get a federal grant to
aid in the purchase of vehicles for the handicapped
program.
"It's certainly not a low priority issue; it's a high
priority ... we certainly have to respond to it
because it's law," Moorehead said. He added that the
University has consulted various automobile com-
panies in relation to the program.
The University is required by federal mandate to
"make a transportation system available to han-
dicapped students," according to Jim Kubaiko,
director of University Disabled Student Services.
IN 1973 Congress passed the Rehabilitation Act -
part of which requires educational institutions
receiving federal funding to establish a transpor-
tation system for the handicapped.

Kubaiko said that if the University is found in
violation of the Rehabilitation Act, it could lose all
money received for federal research grants.
"The University might be dragging their feet
because the law is not really enforced," explained
Steve Biehle, a student who works at Disabled
Student Services.
KUBAIKO SAID he has worked out some details for
the transportation system. But, Moorehead said, the
.University still is examining its options.
Kubaiko said that he knows of five University
students who use wheelchairs and 15 others with
mobility impairments on campus. Permanently
disabled students and, in some cases, temporarily af-
flicted individuals - with problems such as broken
bones - probably would be eligible for the transpor-
tation service, he said.
Both Michigan State University and Eastern
Michigan University have programs for the han-
dicapped.
EASTERN MICHIGAN University recently has
purchased a van for transporting disabled persons -
both faculty and students. It seats a maximum of four
wheelchairs.

Officials at Eastern Michigan have been discussing
the purchase of such a vehicle since 1977, but only put
an order in writing several months ago.
"We asked for it and they gave it to us," said Mark
Brazill, director of Handicapped Student Services at
EMU.
Michigan State University has five buses especially
designed for handicapped students.
According to Henrik Christiajisen, MSU operations
supervisor for transportation, the school has four
vehicles'which accommodate three wheelchairs each
and cost $25,000. The fifth vehicle holds two
wheelchairs and cost $40,000.
Christiansen said that MSU did receive a federal
grant, but, to his knowledge, "it only covered part of
it (the cost)."
The number of students using these facilities varies
from "term to term," but, he said, MSU has ap-
proximately 20 students using them on a permanent
basis.

A cold excuse
EMBER ALL THOSE times you decided to skip
classes because of that terrible cold you had?
Well, you were just goldbricking, according to
Dr. Adrian Rogers. Rogers said in a British
medical journal article that "the patient will be no more
comfortable resting at home than at work." The good doc-
tor further dismissed the excuse that fellow workers might

Gadfly victorious
Attention Zolton Ferency fans: After 20 years of fruitless
campaigning, the Michigan State University professor has
won his first election for public office. Ferency took a seat
on the 21-member Ingham County Board of Commissioners,
defeating Republican Margaret O'Rourke by a slim 3,908 to
3,493 vote margin. "I'm pleased to have won an election at
long last," Ferency said, and added he is "looking forward"
to the prospect of "carrying the burden" for the causes he

the rocks. "I feel fine," parachutist Ken Hamilton said
from his hospital bed. Hamilton, 27, suffered broken bones
and cuts Saturday after his parachute failed to open during
an exhibition jump marking the First New River Gorge
Bridge Day near Charleston, W.Va. The stuntman, who
makes a living jumping for advertising campaigns, said his
guide chute, which pulls out the main chute, had tangled
and only half of the main canopy opened. He tried to land in
the river, but missed by about three feet. Close, but no
cigar. "I never lost consciousness when I hit. I just started
spitting out teeth so I wouldn't choke," he explained matter

Sergio Pasetto, who died so close to the election that city of-
ficials didn't have time to remove his name from the ballot.
The Democratic Committee urged voters to cast their
ballots for Pasetto as a tribute to him and also as a means of
keeping his legislative seat in Democratic hands. Voters
seemed to agree with the committee and elected Pasetto
with far more votes than Leavitt. But Leavitt maintains
that she is the winner. "The winner of an election is the per-
son who gets the most votes," she said. "I don't believe a
dead man is a person."
