Joe Buckner, a criminal justice End '
political science major from Slier City,
announced Sunday he was a candidate
for student body president.
"I see the student body president as a
motivator. This school 13 flooded with
talent to confront racism, housing
problems and academic advising. The
key is using talent to its maximum
benefit," he said.

innovation and creativity in Student

realistic approach to problems as a way
to achieve goals and ideas'
He cited the escort service, RAPE, of '
which he was director. "It not only
provided security but allowed students
to get involved on the ground level.
"I don't claim to have all the right
answers. I am willing to initiate
programs and ideas to help relieve
critical situations" he said. :
"My most pressing-view is racism. On
a national scale, there is an upswing in
conservatism, a resurgence cf the Klan

The. Associated Press
The United States and Iran, in accord
on every point but still working on final
transactions, reached the brink of
agreement Sunday night for the release -of
52 American hostages, probably
before President Carter leaves office
The Carter administration, driving for
a late-night accord, completed its review
of the agreement and awaited "final
review, approval and initialing" in
Tehran, an administration official said.
The official said there was no
indication "that any major problems
have arisen." He said the delay was
caused by the complicated translations
necessary to prepare the agreement in
three different countries and . three
languages English, French for the
Algerian intermediaries, and Fafsi, the
language of Iran.
Carter's successor, Ronald Reagan,
endorsed whatever deal Carter could
The hostages, seized 442 days ago
from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, may
be freed on Monday, according to a man
who identified himself as one of the six
Algerian doctors who will examine the
captives before their departure. V
Shortly before midnight, President
Carter was still in the Oval Office,
hoping to address the nation once the
settlement was completed- and
announced in Algiers.
A broadcast from Algeria said the
"final adjustments to the agreement can
only be a matter of hours," and Sen.
Charles Perey, chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,-- said:
"I'm certain a deal will be made public
before we all go to bed tonight."

announced that the United States and
Iran reached a final agreement Sunday
that would end the 14-month-old
hostage crisis and bring 52 captive
Americans home at last.
"I think the-adventure is reaching an
end," negotiator Behzad Nabavi said on
the government-run Tehran Radio.

have hoped and prayed. When I heard
the report on the radio ... I was and
I'm sure 226 million Americans were
thrilled and overjoyed."
Throughout the day Sunday, there
were reports that an official
announcement would come at any
moment, probably from Algiers, where
Deputy Secretary of State Warren M.
Christopher was heading the U.S.
negotiating team. .
But as the moments passed, an official
explained that minor problems over
wording "may crop up and may take
anywhere from five minutes to
whatever" to resolve.
At the State Department, a senior
official said simply: "The only problems
I know at this point are impatience."
Overall, the agreement provides for
return of about $9.5 billion in blocked
Iranian assets in exchange for the
hostages' release. Vice President Walter
. Mondale said Sunday that the U.S.
government would not pay "a dime of
American money" to get the hostages
Government officials said official
word of an agreement would come first
from Algiers, then from Washington
and Tehran. Iran's top negotiator said
an accord had been struck, but not yet
signed, and that the hostages would be
freed in the next few days.

Watson Jr., appearing on NBC-TV's

"We have in place all mechanisms for
the necessary implementation of the
agreement once it is agreed to by both
sides," Watson said.
"In other words we have taken
extraordinary measures, and precautions
and steps over the' last several days,
particularly since Friday, to ensure that,
, if an agreement was struck, we can
execute on that agreement virtually
instantaneously," he said.
Previously frozen Iranian assets will
be transferred to Tehran only after "our
hostages have cleared Iranian air
space," he said.
Carter broke off his weekend retreat
to Camp David and returned to
- Washington shortly after noon Sunday.
It was not known whether he would fly
overseas to greet the hostages himself.
Former Secretary of State Cyrus R.
Vance and a 30-member team, including
physicians, psychologists and State
Department personnel, were assembling
to fly to Wiesbaden, West Germany,
where the hostages would be taken for
several days of examinations and rest at
a U.S. Air Force hospital.

The hospital, a German-built wartime
military facility with giant red crosses on
its roof, has served as the first full

bound from Iran twice since militant
revolutionaries seized the U.S. Embassy
in Tehran on Nov. 4, 1979.

there had been no movement of U.S.
