LOS ANGELES (AP) President-elect Ronald
Reagan tc!d Iran Thursday that it would not profit by .
wellies for the United States presidential transition
before releasing the 52 American hostages.
He said he was willing to do all he could to help win
freedom for the 52 Americans, held in Iran for more
than a year, but said he would not intrude cn
negotiations during the final months of the Carter
He said he wouldn't offer his own ideas on the
hostages "if I thought for one minute that it could for
one minute delay their release," emphasizing, "I hope
the Iranians will not have any idea there will be any
profit to thern in waiting," for his inauguration Jan.
At his first press conference since election as
president, Reagan also called economics the issue of the
campaign just won, and said he would move instantly
to implement a freeze in the federal work force and a 10
percent tax cut. He said it would be fine with him if
Congress started to work cn the tax cut during the
lame-duck session that begins Nov. 12.
Reagan acknowledged a telegram cf congratulations
from Soviet leaders and then in no uncertain terms
warned the Soviet Union that in negotiating arms
control, he would not ignore Soviet actions in ether
areas of world relations.
"I don't think you simply sit down at a table with the
Soviet Union to discuss arms limitations, for example,
but you discuss the whole attitude, world attitude, as to
whether we're going to have a world of peace or
whether we're simply going to talk about weaponry and
not bring up these other subjects," he said. "In other
words, I am for linkage."
The Carter administration had separated the SALT
II treaty from Soviet conduct elsewhere in the world,
saying that U.S. support of the pact was not a carrot to
keep the Kremlin in line.
Reagan began the press conference by unveiling his
transition team, reaching into the top command of his
U V mi
campaign organization in choosing the personnel who
will plan his takeover of the government and he
premised net to ignore the voices cf right-wing groups
in shaping his administration.
William Casey, his campaign chairman, was
committee and head of its foreign policy advisory
beard. Campaign staff chief William Meese III was
named to the same post in the transition.
Reagan offered his help to Carter in trying to win the
release cf the American hostages in Iran, but said he
would not try to impose anything on the
administration, either in that area or any other.
"World leaders must be aware the president is still
the president," Reagan declared.

A chancellor's committee recently
released a report recommending that
cable television be installed in each
campus residence hall and in married
, The report, issued by the Committee
on the Study of Communications
Technology, said Village Cable Inc.
should be given permission to install
cable lines in the television lounge of
each residence hall. It should not be
installed in any dorm rooms until
another study is completed, the report
James Cansler, associate vice
chancellor for student affairs and a
member of the committee, said the
proposal next must be approved by the
Chancellor's Administrative Council.
If the report is approved, a contract
must be signed between the University
and Village Cable. While installing cable
in Odum Village, the married student
housing, would not be difficult, "laying
television cables to the residence halls
will be a very expensive process,"
. Cansler said.
Russell Perry, associate director of
operations in University Housing,
agreed, "The problem we have now is
that the conduits that run underground
' (to the dorms) have electric telephone
or sewer lines. They cannot put the cable
into existing electrical or telephone
conduits. So there are no provisions for
cable. So the biggest problem is getting
the cable wire into the building."
"How that will be done has yet to be
dealt with. This report is really sort of a
first step," Cansler said.
Lu Stanton, general manager of
Village Cable, said laying the cable to
the 29 residence halls could take several
months. "The components must be
designed first," she said. "Then we
must get the materials, and then we can
begin underground construction." She
said that she had no cost estimate but
that it could be too expensive for Village "
Cable. If so, then Village Cable and the
University may negotiate to share the
There is no such problem with Odum
Village. Perry said that the University
prepared for the coming of cable
television three years ago when it
installed a television antenna system.
"The system was installed with the idea
that at some point cable was coming,"
he said. "They can run the cable up to
our antenna and tie in."
Stevens agreed installing cable in
Odum Village would be little trouble.
"That is not extensive. We would go
ahead with it," she said.
Student Body President Bob Saunders
said he was pleased with the committee's
recommendation. "I hope the
University moves as quickly as possible
on the recommendation," he said. "It
would be a welcome addition to
residence hall life."
Perry said he agreed. "We were
anxiously awaiting this.. But I know
there are a lot of problems that need to
be worked out."

"We'll get a lot of attention by doing this," John
Ganga said Thursday afternoon, sitting behind a
table set up outside the Carolina Union proclaiming
a "Smoke-In" to be held Nov. 16 in the Pit.
Ganga said he hoped to see 1,500 people attend
the event at which marijuana will be provided for
the participants, Thursday Ganga and a few other
organizers were trying to drum up support from
passers-by outside the Union.
Ganga, who has organized smoke-ins in Florida
and Washington, D.C. said the event was being
sponsored by the North Carolina Yippies movement
and Students Against Militarism, and that the
smoke-in would.be the first foray by the Yippie
movement into the South. Ganga had been active in
the New York Yippies and had spent the weekend in
Washington camping with Indians in front of the

White House. The Yippie movement began in the
1960s as the Youth International Party xi
advocated the overthrow of government.
Chris Kucny of Chapel Hill and Mark Beaty cf
Raleigh also helped Ganga answer questions from
the curious and sell pro-marijuana buttons to
finance the smoke-in. , When asked where the
marijuana was coming from to supply a large
crowd, Ganga said that in addition to the pot
supplied by the Yippies, many people would be
expected to bring their own. As for the pot supplied
by the group, Ganga said, "We're getting the pet
from Ja." He explained that "Ja" was the
Jamaican word for God.
Sporting a "Reagan for Shah" button, Ganga
said the rally was to protest conservative causes in
general and anti-marijuana laws in particular. "A

professor Elizabeth Czech resigned as
Student Educational Broadcasting Inc.
Nominations Committee chairperson
Wednesday night, saying in a written
resignation she was protesting the mockery of
the recent selection process of the new
WXYC station manager.
SEB holds the license for WXYC, the
student radio station cn campus, and selects
directors of the station. Bill Burton was
selected at the Oct. 6 SEB meeting to replace

"When candidates , were presented,' the
beard ignored the guidelines end time limits
end cppcareJ to Ire voting more cn a musical
sound than upon the qualifications of a
person to be a station manager," Czech
stated in her resignation.
In addition to her immediate resignation as
committee chairperson, Czech resigned as a
member of SEB effective Dec. 3. She said her
reasons for leaving " included mounting
professional responsibilities and
disappointment with the slowness of the
"Because of the weak participation by 60
percent of the board members, I see SEB
annually reinventing' the wheel instead of
going ahead with other parts cf the vehicle,"
her resignation stated.
Czech said that a small number cf SEB
members was doing most cf the group's work
while the rest of the members either failed to
attend meetings or arrived late end left early.
She added that she did not agree with SEB
members who thought students should be
allowed full control of the station. She said
she believed the station was controlling the
board when the board should be controlling
Brian Lee, the student body president's
appointee on the SEB, said: "I'm very
disappointed. I think she's got a lot of valid
reasons for resigning.
Station Manager" Burton said that
Wednesday night was his first night as a
voting member of SEB and that he really
knew very little about Czech's work on SEB.
"Personally, I didn't agree with a lot of
her precepts about what the station should be
doing. Nothing she ever did, individually,
affected the station enough to harm the
station," Burton said. He added that he
- believed Czech had done a lot to get the
In other business, Burton questioned
whether Rob Hickson was a valid WXYC
representative for SEB. Hickson lost his job
as program director when Burton became the
station manager, but he still works for
WXYC on a limited basis.
Burton stated that at a WXYC staff
meeting, the station members present,
approximately one-half of the total number
of station employees,. voted 43-1 in favor of
choosing a new representative. Burton asked
the board what the procedure for removing a
representative was. The board found no
procedure in the bylaws and, after much
discussion, a motion was passed that WXYC
write up a policy for election and removal of
its SEB representative to be used for future
references. Cut it decided that since WXYC
had no policy now, Hickson should be
