  • Description

    STUDENTS, BELIEVED TO REPRESENT THE IRANIAN NATIONAL FRONT MOVEMENT, MARCHED UP AND DOWN OUTSIDE THE NEW YORK UNIVERSITY YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) WAVING PLACARDS AND CHANTING SLOGANS DURING THE VISIT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF SHAH OF IRAN AND HIS WIFE.

    AT TIMES THE CHANTING WAS SO LOUD THAT THE AUDIENCE IN THE UNIVERSITY HALL HAD DIFFICULTY IN HEARING THE SHAH'S SPEECH. ALI HAGHPARAST, OFFICIAL ADVISOR TO IRANIAN STUDENTS STUDYING IN NEW YORK, TOLD NEWSMEN LATER THAT NONE OF THE DEMONSTRATIONS WERE STUDENTS FROM HIS HOMELAND. HE SAID HE RECOGNISED ONLY FOUR AS IRANIANS AND THAT THEY WERE IMMIGRANTS - NOT ON TEMPORARY STUDENT VISAS. HOWEVER A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE DEMONSTRATORS CLAIMED HE WAS PRESIDENT OF THE IRANIAN STUDENT'S ASSOCIATION OF GREATER NEW YOUR AND SAID THAT ALL THE PICKETS WERE MEMBERS OF HIS ASSOCIATION.

    THE SHAH WAS VISITING THE UNIVERSITY TO RECEIVE AN HONORARY DOCTOR OF LAWS DEGREE. IN HIS SPEECH THE SHAH SPOKE OF THE ROLE OF SMALLER NATIONS IN THE UNITED NATION S ORGANISATION. HE SCORNED THOSE WHO CRITICIZED SOME OF THE SMALLER NATIONS WHICH HAD FALLEN BEHIND IN THEIR PAYMENTS TO THE ORGANISATION. "THINGS BEING WHAT THEY ARE," HE SAID, "THE PROVISION OF FUNDS BY THE RICH AND MANPOWER BY THOSE WHO LACK FUNDS, MAKES FOR A ROUGH EQUALITY OF BURDEN WHICH MEETS THE STANDARD OF EQUITY." SPEAKING ABOUT THE APPARENT EARMARKING OF COUNTRIES LIKE CANADA AND THE SCANDINAVIAN STATES FOR THE PROVISION OF TROOPS FOR SERVICE IN THE UNITED NATIONS PEACE-KEEPING MISSIONS, HE ASSERTED: "IRAN IS READY TO JOIN THEM IN THIS ENLIGHTENED POLICY AND TO HOLD IN READINESS A DETACHMENT OF THE IRANIAN ARMY FOR SERVICE IN SUCH EMERGENCY IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD."
    THE SHAH IS CONTINUING HIS PRIVATE VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES WITH A TRIP TO LOS ANGELES.
