Iranians
remember
hostage
taking
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - Iran
said millions marched in its cities
yesterday, chanting "Death to
America" on the eighth anniversary
of the day a mob stormed the U.S.
embassy and seized hostages, who
spent 444 days in captivity.
Hashemi Rafsanjani, speaker of
the parliament, declared a week of
mobilization to "confront American
agression."
State television showed disabled
veterans of the seven-year-old war
with Iraq in wheelchairs, holding
banners aloft that read: "This is
proof of U.S. crimes."
Soldiers dragged American flags
through the streets and set them
ablaze while bystanders chanted and
jabbed their fists into the air.
Tehran radio said a bomb killed
two people and wounded 26 during a
rally in Mahabad, northwest Iran,
and said "American mercenary
agents" were responsible.
No details were given. Other
bombings in Iranian cities have been
blamed on dissident Iranian groups
that operate from Iraq.

Peace deadline

nears,

fighting

continues

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
deadline for implementing the
Central American peace plan is
today, but with warfare continuing
in Nicaragua and elsewhere, U.S.
officials see the 90 days allowed for
compliance more as a beginning
than an end of process.
The signing of the agreement last
August by five Central American
presidents produced near-panic in the
Reagan administration because
officials saw the accord as a virtually
cost-free way for Nicaragua's leftist
government to win an end to
American aid to the Contra rebels.
Now, however those fears appear
somewhat exaggerated, the officials
say, adding that the Sandinista
government is finding itself
increasingly on the defensive and
faces some extraordinarily difficult
choices in the weeks ahead.
The peace agreement w as
primarily aimed at finding Central
America's insurgencies through
cease-fires and a process of naitonal

reconciliation. But fighting
continues in each of the three war-
plagued countries - Nicaragua, El
Salvador, and Guatemala - with
little sign of an early settlement in
any of them.
El Salvador has held cease-fire
discussions with leftist rebels with
no progress reported. . However,
consistent with the requirements of
the agreement, President Jose
Napolean Duarte is expected to
announce a general amnesty for
political prisoners. A partial,
unilateral cease-fire may also be
decreed in time for Thursday's
deadline.
Guatemala also has held direct
discussions with leftist insurgents,
but a settlement seems no more than
a remote possibility.
Central American leaders appear
to recognize that the 90-day schedule
for implementing the agreement was
too ambitious, and U.S. officials say
the region's leaders now are looking
to January as a more realistic
deadline.

Group works for Japanese American

By STEPHEN GREGORY
Members of the University
community last night discussed
ways they can pressure President
Ronald Reagan to support monetary
reparations for Japanese-Americans
interned during World War Two.
Scott Wong, a member of the
University of Michigan Asian
Student Coalition recounted to the
30 participants that from 1942 to
1946, "over 120,000 Japanese-
Americans... were behind barbed
wire, guarded by soldiers with ,rifles
pointed inward."
Wong said by interning Japanese-
Americans, the U.S. government not
only violated their Constitutional
rights, but also disrupted their lives,
"and their integrity was stripped
from them on false pretenses."
"Everything these people had over

the years vanished in the month of
March (1942)," Wong said. The
relocation policy mandated that
internees could bring only what they
could carry. Internees were forced to
sell or abandon the bulk of their
possessions.
"Some never fully recovered,"
Wong said.
The U.S. government has neither
officially apologized for the
internment nor paid complete
reparations for it, he said.
The Redress and Reparations
movement has worked to change this
since the late 1940s but didn't pick
up steam until a 1981 Carter
Administration commission,
studying the internment, recom-
mended Congress pass reparation
legislation.
A version of that legislation -

THE IST
What's happening in Ann Arbor today

which calls for every internee to be
paid $20,000 and for a $50 million
fund to educate Americans about the
internment camps - passed the
U.S. House of Representatives last
month and is expected to pass the
Senate overwhelmingly
Reagan has stated publicly that he
will veto any legislation that would
include monetary reparations.
UMASC member John
Yamamoto asked meeting attendants

vote, the law's impact is delayed
until 90 days after the session ends.
Lacking enough votes in the
House, anti-abortion legislators
skipped the second vote but pointed
to language on the petitions that
called for the ban to take effect
immediately.
In its ruling, the Supreme Court
said the Constitution didn't allow
exceptions to the two-thirds vote,
even for legislation created by a
citizens' petition drive.
Since the Legislature usually ends
in its sessions on Dec. 30, the
ruling means the ban won't take
effect until April 1.
Barbara Listing, president of
Michigan Right to Life, said, "This
is a victory for us because we want
the funding to continue for poor
women, but this is really a short-
term victory."

to write Reagan and urge him not to
veto the bill. Yamamoto said local
efforts will work in conjunction
movements nationwide.
Thomas Rujita, an American
Culture doctoral student, said, "If it
doesn't happen now it probably
won't happen."
