Reagan admits Iran
By LAURIE DUNCAN
UNC and Capitol Hill officials
agreed that President Reagan
improved his public image Wednes
day when he called the Iran initiative
a mistake and presented an outline
for his administration's reform.
But many contend that the speech
is just a first step for Reagan, and
there are still questions to be
"The things that have already been
revealed indicate that there are a lot
of skeletons still left," said James
Leutze, chairman of UNC's Peace,
War and Defense curriculum.
In a 12-minute, nationally tele
vised speech, Reagan promoted the
revitalization of his administration
with new personnel, new guidelines
for accountability within the admin
istration, and stricter limits on the
National Security Council.
"Tonight the president reached the
same judgment the American public
reached weeks and weeks ago," said
Sen. Robert Dole, R-K.an., referring
to Reagan's acknowledgment that
the Iran policy was flawed. "This isn't
behind him yet, but it's a start."

The body of UNC junior John
Nathaniel Partridge III was found
in a creek near his parents' Raleigh
home at 10 a.m. Wednesday by
He had been missing since he
walked out of his parents' 4805
Rampart St. home 32 days ago.
Raleigh police said Wednesday
that they did not know the cause of
death Wednesday night, and that the
autopsy report would not be avail
able until Thursday.
Partridge's body had been in the
creek behind Northbrook Country
Club for about three weeks, Raleigh
police Sgt. John Beasley said
"It could be more, it could be less,"
Beasley said. "He'd been there for
a good while." He refused to spec
ulate about the possible cause of
death. Beasley also said he didn't
know why police didn't find Par
tridge's body earlier.
The second floor of Grimes Res
idence Hall, where Partridge lived,
was very quiet Wednesday night.
Partridge's friends said that during
the weeks he was missing, they never
thought he was dead.
"We were worried that maybe he
was cold or wasn't eating good meals
or "wasn't coming back to schools
said sophomore York Morgan, who
lived across the hall from Partridge.
"We never thought that he'd be gone
His hallmates said they thought
Partridge, who was president of
Grimes, probably had committed
suicide. "He was the nicest guy in
the world," said freshman Andy
Murphy, of 203 Grimes. "That's why
it was so hard to think about
Suicide would be very out of
character for Partridge, they said.
"Even if he did hurt himself, the
Dole called Reagan's speech a
"brilliant presentation" that was
everything the American public
could expect to hear.
He said the president was on the
right track by admitting mistakes in
the Iran policy and starting new
processes in the White House.
The speech was noteworthy
because Reagan showed personal
vigor and appeared alert and in
control, Leutze said.
How Reagan handles the present
situation is more important to most
Americans than how he handled the
Iran affair, because people are tired
of the particulars of the Iran issue,
, Reagan's speech responded to the
Tower Commission report released
last Thursday, which criticized the
president's management style, ignor
ance of details, and lack of attention
to consequences of the Iran policy.
"The way I work is to identify the
problem, find the right individuals
to do the job and then let them go
do it," Reagan said. "When it came
to managing the NSC staff, my style
didn't match its track record. I have
already begun correcting this."
According to treasury laws, after
a group accumulates five late requi
sitions, it may lose access to funding
Congress also appropriated $ 1 ,570
to Henderson Residence College for
use in Springfest '87. The bill to
allocate the money to HRC,
authored by Brock Dickinson (Dist.
13) and Springfest organizer Liz
Cass, passed by a consent vote.

approved the appointment of junior

his head. "If he did (commit suicide),

said that they had no leads in the
case and that they did not think

Reagan's personnel changes
included the appointments of Frank
Carlucci as national security adviser,
Howard Baker as chief of staff and
the nomination Tuesday of William
Webster as CIA director.
Acknowledging his lack of candid
ness in the last three months, Reagan
said, "I've paid a price for my silence
in terms of your trust and confi-.
dence. But I have had to wait, as
have you, for the complete story."
