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 IDXiJ 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. See REAGAN on psge 2 I VP l!Zt&3G Dy WILLIAM PESCHEL Staff Writer A chancellor's committee recently released a report recommending that cable television be installed in each campus residence hall and in married student housing. , 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 said. 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 construction cost. 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." 6.

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 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 10) on; iit&WQ 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 lot of people don't get into these (N.C.

Radio, television and motion pictures 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 G'.cr.n Mitchell cs station manager after Mitchell rcJgneJ. "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 board. "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 the station. 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 station going. 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 allowed to i GREENSBORO (AP) Prosecutors gave their last and v j most earnest arguments Thursday on why six Ku Klux ) Klansmen and Nazis should be put to death in the shooting I deaths of five communists last fall, setting the stage for the t j 21-weck case to go to the jury today. I Superior Court Judge James M. Long told the jury he would j finish instructing them about noon today and deliberations would begin immediately afterward. j Prosecutors urged an all-white jury to reject defense j contentions that the Klansmen and Nazis were acting in self- j defense during an 3-seeond battle with sticks and guns with ornscett -.p members of the Communist Workers Party. They collided at a "Death to the Elan Rally" sponsored by theCWP. . . Assistant District Attorney Jim Coman, referring to videotapes of the melee played for juron, said, "You've seen them (the Klan-Nazis). Who were they defending themselves against?" Throughout final arguments, prosecutors have insisted that the Klansmen-Nazis, who arrived at a rally staging area in a caravan cf cars and vans, were the aggressors. 7 1 "3 1 i f JL V Q HJ O km & aJ J fulfill his term.
