ffoF shah9 'operation
PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP)
Doctors and officials worked under tight
security Wednesday to prepare a local
hospital ward for a delicate spleen
operation on the deposed Shah of Iran,
medical sources said.
The sources, who asked not to be
identified, said Paitilla Hospital a
private Panamanian clinic was declared
a security area by authorities and all
employees and medical personnel were
ordered not to talk about what they were

inflamed, enlarged and probably
associated with a tumor, and that he will

The former monarch now lives on
Panama's Contadora Island. His last
medical check-up a week ago showed he

Dr. Benjamin Kean, the shah's
personal physician, refused to disclose
the date of the operation for security
reasons, the spokesman said. But sources
in Panama said it probably would be
sometime within the next week or so.
The spokesman quoted Kean as saying
the operation would be hazardous and
that the shah would require major blood
transfusions during and after the
As preparations continued, employees
and officials at Paitilla Hospital
answered reporters' queries with the one
sentence they have been instructed to
give: "We know nothing."
Senior hospital officials met behind
closed doors earlier this week to plan the
operation, one source said, and others
said an Iranian woman doctor who
accompanies the shah almost everywhere
had visited Paitilla Hospital recently.
Contadora is a tourist retreat off
Panama's Pacific coast where the shah
has lived since his arrival Dec. 1 5 from the
United States. He underwent gallbladder
surgery and cancer treatment in New
York in late October and November and
spent a brief recovery period in Texas.

The shah has been living under
political asylum in Panama. But the
Iranian government asked on Jan. 23 for
his extradition. The Iranian authorities
have 60 days to present the necessary
documents required under Panama's
complicated extradition laws.
However, Panamanian officials say it
will take months if not years to clear the
case through the courts and expressed
doubt the shah will be extradited.

Gacy found guilty in murder trial
CHICAGO (AP John W. Gacy Jr., whom prosecutors called the worst
murderer in the nation's history, was found guilty on Wednesday in the sex
killings of 33 boys and young men by a Circuit Court jury of seven men and five
women. The jury deliberated only one hour and 50 minutes.
The former building contractor was convicted of 33 counts of murder and of
taking indecent liberties with a minor and deviate sexual assault. Both those
latter charges stemmed from the disappearance of 15-year-old Robert Piest.
The verdicts were read by the clerk of the court while Gacy sat without
expression, staring straight ahead. When he was taken from the court, he
walked briskly under heavy guard.
Vance discusses commission's future
WASHINGTON (A P) Secretary of State Cyrus Vance flew to New York
on Wednesday for talks with U.N. officials in an effort to determine if a special
international commission can still be used to end the crisis over the holding of
some 50 American hostages in Iran.
Vance planned meetings with U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim and
with members of the U.N. -sponsored commission who returned this week from
Iran after failing in their mission to see the American hostages.
Carter administration officials, speaking privately, said they wanted to make
sure there was no possibility of making progress through the commission
before abandoning it and deciding on a new strategy.
Report says U.S. must strengthen NATO
LONDON (AP The outlook for the West is bleak unless the Soviet
Union's expanding power in the Persian Gulf is rebuffed by a bigger U.S. and
NATO commitment there, says an analysis for a think-tank on world defense
The report released Wednesday by the International Institute for Strategic
Studies said the West cannot hope to control events in the region but can only
aim for a "balance of influence" with the Soviets.
"If the West is entangled in this volatile region, the U.S.S.R. will. ..find it far
from easy to gain positions of advantage," wrote Sharham Chubin, an Iranian
citizen and M ideast expert in the analysis. "Western states will need to be more
rather than less involved."
Puerto Rican official's car attacked

Although construction on North Campus
has led to a tighter parking situation, the
number of parking tickets issued by the traffic
office has not increased, Sharpe said.
The number of tickets issued really has
gone down in the past year and in the past few
years," he said.
Sharpe said having parking monitors posted
at the entrances of the larger parking lots had
cut down on the number of tickets written for
"Before (this monitoring procedure), we
could go to the Student Union lot and ticket
three out of five cars for not having a parking
permit " he snid
Sharpe said, however, that there was an
increase last fall in the number of parking
violations in handicapped and reserved spaces.
"Last fall there were twice as many reserved
space violations as there were the fall the year
before, and this was due in part to the
construction," he said.
"The number of tickets written is not the
concern of this office, though," Sharpe said.
"If we wrote 50 tickets in one lot, 1 would be
more concerned that so many people got in the
lot than pleased that so many tickets were
written. One of my goals here is to cut down on
the number of tickets written."

Tenney says Chapel Hill
living hurts candidacy
By DAVID TEAGUE
Staff W riter
The lone Republican candidate for
state insurance commissioner said the
only thing going against his campaign is
that he lives in Chapel Hill.
"The fact that I'm from Chapel Hill
might hurt me." said Edwin Tenney, w ho
will run unopposed in North Carolina's
election primary on M ay 6. "No one from
Chapel Hill has ever been elected to a
state office.' he said.
Tenney, who ran an unsuccessful
campaign for insurance commissioner in
1976, said he is running again because he
feels the insurance office under
Commissioner John Ingram is not being
"What can you say when the insurance
commissioner loses 35 out of 36 court
cases?" he said. "John Ingram has made
arbitrary judgements without any
guidance or without any knowledge of
Tenney also criticized Ingram for
seeking another political office while
serving as insurance commissioner.
Ingram ran unsuccessfully for the U. S.
Senate in 1978 against Jesse Helms.
"You shouldn't campaign for another
office while you're on the state payroll,"
he said. "Not only did (Ingram) do it but
his employees did it also."
Tenney, who formerly owned an
insurance company, said his experience
as an insurance agent and exposure in the
1976 campaign make him qualified for
"I gained over 500,000 votes with a
budget of $6,700 as opposed to Luther
Hodges who had. 200,000 votes with an
expenditure of over SI million," he said.
"As the owner of an insurance
company I was also the recipient of some
of Ingram's bad judgements," he said. "I
think that the primary objective of the
insurance commissioner is to regulate
insurance compaines to benefit the
"I have been exposed to the consumer
and consumer problems, and I would
fight for him," he said.
Tenney is a lifelong resident of Chapel
Hill and has been involved in numerous
city activities. He is a graduate of UNC
Chapcl Hill and served as associate editor
for the Daily Tar Heel.
He also served on the Chapel Hill
Carrboro School Board and was
chairman of the North Carolina Real
Estate Licensing Board.
Although Tenney filed as a candidate
in February he has not campaigned
heavily yet, because he will not know his
opponent until the May 6 primary.
"The voters need a choice," he said.
"The insurance office has been held by the
same party since 1 889. There needs to be a
"The insurance office is dead, it needs
to be dissected. 1 think my chances arc
much better this time because people are
ready for a change."

of large peat deposits found in eastern
North Carolina. If properly developed,
these massive reserves could account for a
large portion of the state's electrical
energy, Bass said. Although the necessary
technology is available, environmental
problems are delaying peat's strip-mine
production, she said.
According to state energy officials,
wood and solar sources could each supply
as much as 5 percent of North Carolina's
energy needs by the end of the decade.
Wind and hydroelectric power also are
Although Hunt sees nuclear power as a
necessary interim energy source, Bass
said because of health and cost problems,
the governor did not consider it a viable
"Nuclear power plants are
economically difficult and only last 15
years," she said. "There is also the
expensive, problem pf, waste disposal."
Nuclear power accounts for 4 percent of
North Carolina's ' present energy
The U.S. Department of Energy
recently predicted that 20 percent of the
nation's energy needs could be supplied
by alternative sources within the next 20
years. Hunt is committed to achieving
that goal in North Carolina, Bass said.
Implicit in Hunt's energy conservation
and development report is the w idespread
use of tax incentives to encourage new
energy methods in homes and businesses.
Bass said the governor probably would
'introduce legislation asking for tax
breaks on wood stoves, small
hydroelectric plants, solar devices, and
solar crop-drying equipment for farmers.
Hunt had made no commitment on
legislation that would restore the state
income tax credit for installing insulation
in homes, which the 1979 General
Assembly eliminated. Hunt did say his
tax incentive package would include the
promotion of gasohol, a mixture of 10
percent alcohol and 90 percent gasoline.
Existing tax credits are available to
industries converting from natural gas or
f"bll to wood energy, arid to home owners
installing solar heating devices.
