of U. S. arms to Iran in August 1985.
However, White House chief of
staff Donald Regan has said Reagan
did not approve the shipment in
advance, and Attorney General Ed-
win Meese III said the president ap-
proved it only when he learned of it
after the fact.
At the Capitol, meanwhile, Sen.
Claiborne Pell (D-R. I.), chairman
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said there was a link
between the latest kidnappings in
Lebanon and Reagan's arms sales
"When the administration en-
gaged in exchanging weapons for
hostages it started down a very
slippery slope indeed, because it
showed if people took hostages
they might get something bene-
ficial to them for doing that," Pell.
Reagan has denied that the arms
sent to Iran were part if a swap for
Americans held hostage in Leb-
anon. Instead, he has argued that the
shipments were intended to help
reopen contacts with a strategically
important nation and that release of
hostages was only a secondary goal.
Reagan has made no public men-
tion of the Iran-contra affair since
before Christmas and has not ans-
wered any questions since a Nov.
19 news conference.
The three-member review board,
headed by former Sen. John Tower
(R-Texas), did not make a verbatim
record of the president's testimony
on grounds that it would be beneath
the dignity of the office.

Aquino allows protest march
MANILA, Philippines - President Corazon Aquino sent Cabinet
ministers to join 15,000 protesters marching on the presidential palace
yesterday, defusing some of the wrath over last week's shootings and
proving her control over the ministry.
She overruled military officers who said they could not ensure her
Mrs. Aquino lifted barricades around Malacanang Palace and kept
soldiers away to allow students, workers, and peasants to march to
condemn the killings of 12 leftist protesters by marines last Thursday.
She dispatched at least eight of her ministers to lock arms with
demonstrators yesterday and lead them peacefully to the palace gates.
Her action softened the anger of both left- and right-wing groups,
who said her administration could not control the military and was
responsible for a street clash bloodier than any during the 20-year
Officials said Mrs. Aquino, who took office 11 months ago when a
"people power" revolution sent President Ferdinand Marcos fleeing into
Hawaiian exile, wanted to show her sympathy with the demonstrators.
Iran claims advance in battle
NICOSIA, Cyprus - Iran said its troops turned a battle area "into a
graveyard for the Iraqi forces'' yesterday, killing or wounding 3,000 of
the foe in a push that brought Iran closer to the southern Iraqi port city
Iraq retorted that Iran had not advanced "even a single inch" and said
the Iranians were retreating. It claimed Iran suffered 2,000 casualties in
the overnight fighting and conceded only 30 casualties among its men.
The rival claims coincided with the opening of a pan-Islamic summit
in Kuwait, at which Kuwait's ruler, Sheik Jaber al-Ahmed al-Sabah,
appealed to Iran and Iraq to end the war.
Activists seek return of land
ATLANTA - A civil rights activist who led 25,000 marchers
through all-white Forsyth County said yesterday that more protests
would follow unless local officials compensated the heirs of blacks
driven off their land by vigilantes 75 years ago.
A team of attorneys has requested tax and property records from the
county to locate blacks who may have lost land, said Randel Osburn,
program director at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
The Rev. Hosea Williams, reiterating statements made at Saturday's
march, demanded that a biracial committee be formed to oversee
"Forsyth's transition from racial bigotry to democratic justice."
He called for a grand jury investigation into a white vigilante
movement that drove about 1,000 blacks out of the county in 1912.
AIDS victim given probation
FLINT - An AIDS carrier who had been charged with attempted
murder for spitting at police was placed on probation for two years
John Richards had pleaded guilty to resisting and obstructing a police
officer after a judge threw out a charge of assault with intent to nurder.
County Prosecutor Robert Weiss originally charged Richards with
attempted murder, which carries up to a life sentence, after Flint police
officers said Richards spit on them when they picked him up after a
traffic accident on Dec. 6, 1985.
In a preliminary examination July 1, 1986, a pathologist testified
Richards was infected with the AIDS virus and probably was con -
tagious, but experts disputed thegcontntion that AIDS could be spread
by spitting, and the charge was thrown out of court.
Note provides solution to
disappearing bathroom case
The Daily recently reported the difficulties that students in the
Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) Building have
been having in trying to find the restrooms on the main floor. The
Daily found the restrooms and provided explicit directions so the needy
could arrive in time, but we cautioned that the men's restroom was
The reason for the unmarked restroom has been discovered.
Yesterday, The Daily received a note, signed "anonymous for obvious
reasons," claiming to provide the solution to the baffling case of the
disappearing men's bathroom. Accompanying the note was a photo-
graph of the missing sign mounted on some anonymous wall.
So now we can close the book on the case of the disappearing
restrooms in the EECS Building. We have found the restrooms, and
now we have found out why the men's room is unmarked.
