Bomb hits home
of B aniSadr;
Ousteris likely-


From AP and UPI
ANKARA, Turkey - Iranian militan-
ts bombed President Abolhassan Bani-
Sadra home -and besieged his office,
yesterday as parliament voted to begin
a debate that could lead to his im-
peachment, reports from Tehran said.
Officials from the revolutionary
prosecutor's office barged into the
presidential compound at midmorning
with arrest warrants for an undisclosed
number of Bani-Sadr aides, a
spokesman at the president's office and
a witness said.
AT LEAST 11 of Bani-Sadr's aides
were reported seized while the
president himself remained under
house arrest at his Tehran palace. Out-
side the palace, demonstrators shouted
for Bani-Sadr's ouster and execution.
THERE WERE reports that Mehdi
Bazargan, Iran's first post-revolution
prime minister and a strong supporter
of Bani-Sadr, also was going to be
arrested. Bazargan's son, Navid, said
he had been tipped that an arrest
warrant was being issued for his father,
the leader of the moderate Freedom for
Iran Movement.
The Majlis (parliament), meanwhile,
voted to debate Bani-Sadr's "political
competence," - a move that will
decide whether impeachment
proceedings should be brought against
the moderate president.
The debate was to begin today with
both sides allotted 10 hours to have their

Bani-Sadr's fundamentalist opponents,
a vote declaring the president to be
"politically incompetent" was virtually
EXPERTS SAID a vote to impeach
Bani-Sadr would likely follow. Analysts
predicted the vote would either force
Bani-Sadr's resignation or lead to his
dismissal by Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini, Iran's supreme religious
and political authority.
Withdrawing his support of the em-
battled president last week, Khomeini
fired Bani-Sadr as commander-in-chief
of the armed forces - a move Iran's
clergy-dominated fundamentalists took
as their green-light to move against
Bani-Sadr's moderates.
ON MONDAY, Khomeini called for
Bani-Sadr to apologize on the state-run
radio and television for past mistakes.
The 81-year-old patriarch of Iran's
revolution said he would accept Bani-
Sadr srepentance.
While pledging allegiance to
Khomeini, Bani-Sadr refused to
apologize and instead proposed a
televised debate between himself and
opponents. Parliament responded by
overwhelmingly approving the debate
on Bani-Sadr's competence.
The Western-educated president has
been in a constant power struggle with
the Islamic Republican Party and
Prime Minister Mohammad Ali Rajai
since he was elected Iran's first
president in January 1980 by 75 percent
of the voters.

Here comes the brides
H ERBERT Morrow, met wife No. 2 through a classified ad. He's
being flooded with letters and telephone calle again after announcing in
print that he's looking for wife No. 3. "A man needs a good woman to be his
companion. Living alone just isn't any fun," says.the 73-year-old Castonia
man, whose highly publicized wifehunts began when his first wife died in
1973after 45 years of marriage. Last year, Morrow married a woman he met
through a Gastonia, N.C. Gazette classified ad and subsequent stories. But
the marriage ended in divorce after only three months - he-says she left him
and went to live with her children. In May, he told the Gazette he was again
on the lookout for a bride, and hundreds of letters and telephone calls have
poured in ever since. In addition, Morrow said several women have visited
him at his home. "One of them told me she wasn't going to let me get away,"
he said. "She said I was just what she was looking for." Morrow says he has
narrowed the fielddown to four women. He keeps letters and photos from
three of them in his wallet, but a letter from a fourth women, a retired
teacher, was accidentally thrown away. "I hope she reads your story and
writes me again," he said. "Tell her I'm interested, but I lost her letter."
Morrowsaid he didn't remember where she was frombut said she was the
only retired teacher who had written to him. The three other letters were
from Trinity, Reidsville and Warrenton. "I tell you right now, I'm right
stuck on those women," Morrow said. "But I'd still like to hear from some
more. I want to be sure I get the right o n e." E
