iMe if hostages not set f re
Iran has until mid-May to end the deadlock over the
U.S. Embassy hostages or face possible military
pressure, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday. But in
Tehran it was announced that the new Iranian
Parliament, which is to decide the hostages' fate, may
not even be elected by then.
A key Iranian leader, Ayatollah Mohammad
Beheshti, told reporters in Tehran the parliamentary
debate would take place "perhaps in June or July."
The Boston Globe reported the Carter administration
had informed its allies and Iran that it was prepared to
clamp a naval blockade on Iran if there was no break in
the hostage stalemate by the week of May 1 1 .
White House press secretary Jody Powell described
the- report as "inaccurate" and said ho decision on such a
military move "has been taken or communicated."
America's European allies, meanwhile, appeared
ready to take some action in support of the United States
and its anti-Iran sanctions.
The European Parliament, representing the nine
Cdmmon Market nations, voted to hold an urgent
debate Thursday on President Carter's call for unified
steps in support of Washington. The leadership of a
large parliamentary bloc has called for a break in
diplomatic relations with Iran if the 50 American
hostages are not freed.
The Parliament cannot order the nine governments to
take any action. But West German Economics Minister
Otto Lambsdorff said Wednesday he expected the
Europeans to agree on joint moves at a foreign ministers
meeting next Monday. If they did not, he said, West
Germany might go ahead with its own sanctions.
U.S. officials say all of the allies might not impose
sanctions as tough as the American measures a cutoff
in diplomatic ties and an almost total embargo on
exports. The Iranians threaten to stop oil shipments to
any country that helps the U.S. pressure campaign.
In another development, a lawyer for Barbara Timm,
mother of Tehran hostage Kevin Hermening, said the
Moslem militants holding the U.S. Embassy promised
to announce by today their conditions for allowing
relatives to visit the hostages. .
Mrs. Timm is in Paris, trying to get a visa from the
Iranian Embassy there to go to Tehran. Her lawyer, Carl
McAfee, contacted the militants by telephone from the
The U.S. deadline for Iranian action was disclosed by
a senior Carter aide, who told reporters the president
might order further retaliatory moves as early as
Thursday but would not consider military steps until
That would give the Iranians sufficient time to
"respond positively" to the non-military U.S. pressure,
said the aide, who declined to be identified. He did not
elaborate on what a "positive" Iranian response would
be, or what military actions might be taken.
Although Powell questioned the Globe report, it is
known that the Carter administration has given

In Tehran, it looked as though the Iranians would not
be ready to decide on the hostages until weeks or months
beyond the mid-May deadline.
The official Pars news agency said the ruling
Revolutionary Council was considering putting off the
already-postponed second round of parliamentary
elections another week, until May 9.
Revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
says the new Parliament must decide whether and when
to release the hostages.
Behesti, influential secretary of the Revolutionary
Council and head of the Justice Ministry, said it might
be summer before legislators could make that decision.
Beheshti, at a news conference, reaffirmed that he
favored putting hostages on trial for espionage, possibly
pardoning them afterward. But he hinted at an
unspecified "third way," or compromise, to resolve the
crisis. The first two "ways" are extradition and trial of
the exiled Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, as demanded
by the militants, or the hostage trials.
"In the future it may happen something new," he
said. He said the important thing was to have a "trial of
American policy in Iran" and that the U.N. investigatory
commission on Iran whose work has been
suspended might help provide that.
But Beheshti evidently meant that a final decision
would still be made by the Parliament.

and pay expenses for the RAPE service.
According to the survey, most women found
out about the service through other women.
"We found that many women wanted to use
the system, but didn't know the number. The
system won't be any good if no one uses it,"
said Jeanette Arthur, a member of the survey -group.
To help publicize the service, Buckner
has enlisted the help of women in the Lower
and Upper quads, and has been able to-print
and distribute 6,000 cards with the name and
number of the service on it. He also cited the
newspapers, radio and television stations for
their encouraging publicity.
While RAPE has received donations this
semester from STOW. Morrison and the
Morehead Confederation, Buckner said the
CGC's approval of the budget will allow the
service to improve its publicity. In response to
some of the recommendations from the survey,
Buckner's plans for next year include:
publishing a pamphlet about the service that
includes a map of areas on campus where there
is a high potential for rape or assault.
asking Southern Bell to change the service's
number to 933-RAPE for easier access.

Reduced lending rate may signal recession
NEW YORK (AP) A major bank reduced its prime lending rate
Wednesday for the first time this year and some economists said the decline, as
well as a drop in other interest rates, confirmed that a recession was under way.
The bond market, which had been going down as as interest rates went up
staged what was apparently the largest one-day rally in its history.
Chase Manhattan Bank lowered the prime rate the interest charged to its
best corporate customers from 20 percent to 1934 percent. It was the first
reduction for that bank since Nov. 27. Some smaller banks reduced their prime
rate to as low as WA percent.
"There is strong confirmation that the economy is in a recession," said David
Jones, an economist with the Wall Street firm of Aubrey G. Lanston & Co.,
pointing to government reports showing March declines in industrial
production, retail sales and housing starts.
Cuban exiles fly to Costa Rica
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) More than 230 Cuban exiles, some weeping
with relief, others with fists aloft shouting "liberty" and "down with
communism" arrived from Havana on two planes Wednesday. One refugee
said he was beaten as he boarded, others said their countrymen stoned them on
the way to the airport.
"I was attacked by a group of people at the airport," said Juan Alberto
Rodriguez, his face cut and a knee bloody and bandaged. "But 1 feel like it is a
new day. I have left the hell of Cuba."
The arrivals were the first of an estimated 10,800 Cubans who packed
themselves into the Peruvian Embassy in Havana the week of April 4. President
Rodrigo Carazo was on hand for the arrival of the first plane and embraced
some of the refugees.
American killed in ambush
ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) Three gunmen ambushed an American naval
officer and his chauffeur Wednesday, killing them instantly with 100 rounds of
pistol fire in an attack linked to the pro-Moscow leftist group that claimed the
killings of six Americans last year.
It was the first slaying of an American since the United States and Turkey,
NATO allies, signed a defense pact 2Vz weeks ago. Police sources said the
ambush might signal a stepped-up drive against Americans by the terrorist
group, which has vowed to continue its armed struggle until the U.S. and
NATO presence in Turkey are wiped out.
The victims were identified as Master Chief Petty Officer Sam Novello, 56, of
Erie, Pa., and his Turkish driver, Ali Sabri Bayar. Novello was attached to the
Istanbul-based U.S.-Turkish Logistic Service under the overall control of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization, authorities said.
Carter, Begin agree to marathon negotiations
WASHINGTON (AP) President Carter's back-to-back summit talks with
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin
resulted in an agreement Wednesday to hold non-stop negotiations in the
Middle East on the future of 1.2 million Palestinians.
The intensive negotiations are aimed at translating Bcgin's 1979 promise of
autonomy for Arabs living under Israel's control into a council elected by
inhabitants of the West Bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza district.
At a news conference, Begin said he could not predict an agreement by May
26, th? date set as a goal by Egypt and Israel. But he said the marathon
negotiations could be extended, noting that the two countries took six months
instead of the three planned to wrap up their peace treaty last year.
