the U.S. position could undermine effor-

replied: "The more united the allies are
in having a commitment to have the
hostages released, the better off it is for
us and for the hostages and for the
future of Iran."
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran's
revolutionary leader, has said the
newly elected Iranian Parliament will
decide the hostages' fate. The
Parliament is not expected to rule on
the hostages until June or July.
Islamic fundamentalists, including
many who favor putting the hostages on
trial as spies, captured a majority in
the second round of voting last week.
They also had dominated the first round
March 14.
MEANWHILE, several American
helicopters flew over Iranian ships

report.
But Iranian Oil Minister Ali Akbar
Moinfar was quoted as saying security
at Iran's oil fields would be stepped up
following the reported incident Monday
night.

BOSTON (AP)-Female college
students flashing fake identification
cards and claiming non-existent
children helped a Northeastern Univer-
sity physical education teacher collect
as much as $1 million in fraudulent
state welfare money, a prosecutor said
yesterday.
The professor, Robert Hayes, 34, was
arrested yesterday in Harrisburg, Pa.,
for his alleged role in running In-
terested Neighborhood Action Inc., a
counseling service described as the
headquarters of the welfare-collecting
scheme.
STEPHEN DELINSKY, an assistant
attorney general, described the
operation as the largest case of welfare
fraud ever discovered in Massachuset-
ts.
"Certain female students used phony
identification to apply for welfare
benefits for themselves and nonexistent
children," the prosecutor said. They
and other neighborhood residents
collected welfare payments, food
stamps, and Medicaid prescription
drugs.
Bayes was one of five people indicted
earlier this month by a Suffolk County
grand jury on charges of larceny, con-
spiracy, and the forging and altering of
checks and public records.
SO FAR, DELINSKY said,
prosecutors have documented several
hundred thousand dollars worth of
fraudulent claims, and by the=tine the
investigation is over, "the potential fes
reaching an amount close to a million

dollars is there."
"Of the money obtained, the vast
majority was turned over to Dr.
Hayes," said Delinsky. "The students
were a significant part of the scheme
but not the majority. The majority were
people in the community who used fake
identification to obtain various kinds of
welfare benefits."
The prosecutor said the state does not
expect to recover any, of the cash
because all of it has been spent.
Asked whether the students took part
in the scherhe for money or to get good
grades, Delinsky replied, "The full
range of human motivation was in-
volved in this matter."
