DEARBORN (UPI)-If the govern-
ment orders the recall of 16 million of
its cars and trucks for an alleged tran-
smission defect, Ford Motor Co. said
yesterday it wouldn't know what to fix.
Roger Maugh, Ford's auto safety
director, accused the government of
unfairly singling out the company for a
problem common to most cars and
trucks equipped with automatic tran-

A plot against the regime of
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was
reported uncovered in an Iranian army
unit yesterday and an undetermined
number of persons died during street
fighting between leftists and Moslem
fundamentalists in Tehran.
Tehran Radio said the army unit in-
volved in the alleged plot was in Piran-
shahr, near the border with Iraq, where
Kurds seek to make the western
province of Kurdistan independent.
Iran's interior minister said clashes

TEHRAN RADIO also said two
' Iranian revolutionary guards died in a
day-long series of clashes Wednesday
between guards and Iraq's army troops
near two border posts.
Khomeini said in a nationwide broad-
cast Tuesday that internal differences
had created "chaos" in Iran and were
threatening his regime.
Various reports said about 300 per-
sons were injured in the battles that
started when the fundamentalists at-
tacked leftists staging a rally at a spor-
ts stadium. Tehran Radio said some
people were killed, but did not say how
many, and did not mention injuries.
THE STADIUM clashes turned into
street battles in which cars were set
ablaze and soldiers, policemen, and
revolutionary guards fired tear gas to
disperse the mobs.
Meanwhile, independent presidential
candidate John Anderson said Wed-
nesday night in Portland, Ore., he
would be willing to apologize to Iran if
there is proof of CIA collaboration with
the shah's secret police.
"We have made some serious
mistakes in our dealings with Iran over
along period of years."
HE SAID he would make no apology
on the basis of demands by the
Ayatollah Khomeini, but: "I think there
is no doubt that Savak (the Iranian
secret police) was involved in torture
and murder and other activities against
human rights. The ch
