But Tehran radio later broadcast a message from Khomeini urging support for Bani Sadr. The bold escape of the half-dozen U.S. diplomats from central Tehran caught the embassy militants off guard Tuesday. "That's illegal! That's illegal!" one of the militants cried to a Western reporter when told of the ruse. Ever since the militants seized the embassy Nov. 4 to press demands for the return of the ousted Shah Mohammad "It rolled and straightened up," one unidentified crewman said from a hospital. "Then it started rolling again and it started to go over. I could see the people sliding off. There was nothing to hold on to. 1 couldn't believe how cold it was in the water or the stink of the fuel." ,Crew members were reported asleep when the collision occurred.

Then, after Canada unexpectedly shut its embassy Monday and withdrew its small staff, the Montreal newspaper La Presse published an article in its Tuesday editions saying some U.S. diplomats had been harbored in the Canadian mission and were spirited out in the previous day or two under cover of false Canadian passports.

A spokesman for the ship's agent, who declined to be identified, said the tanker carried 150,000 barrels of oil but did not spill its cargo.

Gilbert said authorities were not sure what caused the collision in a section of the bay 200 to 300 yards wide. Under normal navigation rules, each ship would stay on the right. A harbor pilot was aboard the oil tanker, Gilbert said. "They normally would be operating radar on both ships," said Lt. Steve Venckus, an operations officer. "Whether they were or not we don't know. All we know is that they collided." Durante dies of lung ailment HOLLYWOOD (AP) Jimmy Durante, the honky-tonk comic with the outsized nose whose artful mix of clowning, fractured English and heart warming pathos endeared him to generations of Americans, died Tuesday at age 86. The famed "Schnozzola," as he was known to friends and fans alike, died alone in a hospital room where he had been confined for three weeks for treatment of a lung ailment. Upon learning the news, comedian George Burns, 84, a longtime friend, said: "What can I say that the world doesn't already know? He was a fine man and a wonderful artist." Red Buttons, another old friend, said; "I loved him. We all loved him. I am sorry to hear the news. But I am almost glad he is out of his misery." Durante was admitted to St. John's Hospital in Saniaulonica , on Jan. 7, suffering from acute lungcongestion.The cause of death was listed as pneumonitis complicated by the effects of previous strokes, said Chris Thomas, a hospital spokeswoman. After a stroke in November 1972 left him partially paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair, Durante was forced to say good night to Mrs. Calabash for the last time and retire from show business. Throughout his career, one of his trademarks was to end his performances with, "Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are." He once confided he was referring to his first wife, who had died.
