"I see the student body president as a motivator. This school 13 flooded with talent to confront racism, housing problems and academic advising.

Duckner said he wanted to put innovation and creativity in Student Government, "using a specific and 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.

Buckner said he wanted to put students in the tenure process. "We are losing a lot of good teachers who can teach real well. We need to get students to say, for example, that this teacher is real effective in class." As president, Buckner said he would continue Action Line, fight Southern Bell rate increase requests and investi gate textbook pricing.

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 Tuesday. 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 make. 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." , The chief Iranian .hostage.'neotiator. 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. Nabavi gave no set time for the hostages' release, but another sourcen the Iranian capital said they would probably fly out of Tehran "before Monday night." Louisa Kennedy, wife of hostage Moorhead Kennedy, said Carter called her and another hostage wife, Katherine Keough, president of the Family Liaison Action Group, at 4:40 p.m. EST and explained the problem over translations. "He made us feel very good," she said. Asked to describe Carter's mood on the telephone, Kennedy said: "We're all practicing caution in our thoughts. There's always something that Can go wrong." Gerald Ford, Carter's predecessor in office, spoke for the nation when he commented about the prospective hostage release: "1 guess I got goosebumps like all Americans. All of us o Jm v. gan inauguration Vi! .t V, . I To ' C .', c ! . Mf : Ac United I:uder;H tre. 1 I, X -f . Chspcl ICIvL'srth Csrellna w f i j I f U '-Li V 1 i. I i f 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 back. 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. White House Chief of Staff Jack Watson Jr., appearing on NBC-TV's "Meet the Press," said the hostages "Mili v. WIESBADEN, West Germany (AP) . Behmd;;;-a:t Sunday-'afternoon-calm, servicemen and women stood - by expectantly at a U.S. military hospital here, waiting for word that the American hostages were on their way. "We're ready if they need us," a U.S. Air Force spokesman said. He said he knew of no special steps being taken Sunday to prepare medical or other facilities here for the 52 hostages. "We're in the same status we've been in all along," another military spokes man said. Desk workers at the Air Force hotel said they had been tcld to make room for a planeload of State Department doctors and other personnel, expected to arrive in West Germany from Washing ton in advance of the hostages. "We don't know when they're coming," a clerk said. "We were just told to get ready for them." .After their Telease, the hostages are expected to spend about a week at the rambling U.S. Air Force hospital complex in this spa town on the Rhine River. Reporters and camera crews main tained vigils in snow and ice outside the hospital's gates. They were among at least 400 journalists who military like the KKK and the Nazis. I feel the mainstream of America should not turn its back and let those groups get away with whatever they want. "For instance, if the KKK were to wipe out the CWP, they might keep going and attack another group which simply turned its back instead of resolving the problem."

"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. Reagan, who will be sworn in as 40th president at noon EST Tuesday at the Capitol, told reporters he would "sign base ready '-for.: ho officials said have gathered "for the po&ibl'i-'aii i v&t of the hostages1 ,f ': - The hospital, a German-built wartime military facility with giant red crosses on its roof, has served as the first full fledged stop for Americans homeward bound from Iran twice since militant revolutionaries seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran on Nov. 4, 1979. Thirteen women and blacks were taken to the hospital after their release Nov. 19-20, 1979, as was Richard Queen,, a hostage released last July after con tracting multiple sclerosis. American diplomats smuggled out of Iran on Canadian diplomatic passports were also ferried through West Germany but were not hospitalized at Wiesbaden. U.S. servicemen wounded in the failed military effort to rescue the hostages were treated here last April. Military spokesmen said late Sunday afternoon there had been no movement of U.S. medical aircraft from their German base. Two of the four DC-9 jets, modified for medical evacuation uses and on standby at nearby Rhcin-Main Air Ease, are expected to bring the hostages to West Germany if they are It was considered likely that the freed Americans , would be flown first to 0 7! fn T(T H TTT If I II (i H li . ) Wl4 'ifafe mi ih uraEKDiiiniceQ By KATI LONG StfrWri:cr Chuck Gardiner, a junior chemistry and" political science major from Manchester, Mass., - announced his candidacy "for Carolina Athletic Association president Sunday. getting bigger, Gardiner said.

Later, he explained: "I meant that if there was an agreement pending and they had insisted on my signature before they would release the hostages . .. What I really meant was I would sign that agreement when they released the hostages." Reagan also was asked whether he believed the reported settlement maintained the nation's honor. "As far as I understand the terms, if they are what was previously told to us, yes." The New York Times and The Washington Post reported Sunday that the United States and Iran had agreed on a formula for the assets transfer and for Iran to pay off outstanding loans to American banks, The Post said that "under the plan, agreed to by representatives cf 12 major American ; banks, the Unitei States would free more than $4 t.ll.on in Iranian deposit! held by . European branches of American banks, and that the money would go to Iran once the hostages arc released. Iran then would use SI billion of the money to pay off American bank loans made to the government of the late shah of Iran. Another nearly $2 billion would be placed in an escrow account for use in paying off other American loans to Iranian institutional borrowers and businesses. : .Algiers, where U.S. envoys, and A'gtrhn . isterrnidiaries "have'', heta working cn negotiations to end the crisis, and then on to West Germany. Medical buses of a U.S. Air Force ambulance service, thought likely to bring the hostages from the air base to, the hospital, still stood covered in snow Sunday in Wiesbaden, about 20 miles from the air base. , . , The State Department has asked relatives of the hostages to stay away in the initial days of their freedom to allow for adjustment to life outside captivity. There was no sign of hostage families in the Amelia Earhart Hotel, a military facility next to the hospital. American GIs on leave strolled through the lobby, and no extra security was evident at the hospital or the hotel, both cf which technically are off-limits to non-military personnel. Military officials involved in prepa rations for a possible release said they were trying to follow the progress of negotiations in Algiers.
