C?:7 .. flr (1 Volume 8 No. 12 NEWSLINE By Alan 11 FANS TRAMPLED TO DEATH Cincinnati Eleven people were trampled to death Monday night in a stampede of fans who stormed the doors of a rock concert by "The Who." Officials claimed the cause for the worst accident connected with rock concerts was due to "festival" style seating. Half of the sold-out 18,000 tickets were available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Riverfront Coliseum. The other half were reserved seats. "This will probably lead to a campaign to end festival seating in future concerts," said Cincinnati Safety Director Richard Custellini. The 11 people were trampled to death and another 20 injured immediately after the first two doors were opened to an estimated 7,000 fans who had been waiting several hours in nearfreezing weather. The concert went on as scheduled and "The Who" made mention of the tragedy during the performance.SHAH SEARCHING THE WORLD FOR HAVEN Texas The desposed Shah of Iran is in his room in a military hospital, still looking for a nation that will grant him asylum so that he can leave the United States. Doctors have said that he has recovered from cancer therapy and gallstone surgery. He was recently seen watching his wife play tennis on the courts at the military base. The Iranian militants holding 50 Americans hostage in the United States Embassy in Tehran have said they will not release their hostages until the United States turns the Shah over for trial. The Carter administration has refused. A spokesman for the Shah announced that he had intended to leave during the weekend, but then Mexico withdrew permission for him to return there. There were reports that the Shah might consider going to South Africa, where his father died in, 1944 after being forced into excile during World War II U.S. EMBASSY STAFF ESCAPES LIBYAN MOB Beirut, Lebanon The anti-American violence sweeping the Islamic world has spread to Libya, where a mob of pro-Iranian students stormed the American Embassy, forcing its staff to flee. Libya's official news agency confirmed that the embassy was overrun Sunday, but denied a State Department report from Washington that the compound was burned to the ground. The State Department said the entire embassy staff, including 12 American diplomats, escaped unharmed and had taken refuge elsewhere in Tripoli. A spokesman said that embassy staff had managed to destroy all classified material before they fled the embassy. A spokesman said Libya did nothing to protect the embassy from the mob and the United States has lodged a protest in "the strongest terms" with the Libyan government.

Anderson went on to say the explaination was reasonable, however, the activity was unap-propriate.Instructors have been ordered to return all property belonging to UTC. UTC officials had obtained property from the school belonging to the instructors after charges s December 7, 1979 were filed, which will be returned. The bargaining included that the college would not file a civil action suit against the instructors. The instructors however, would resign their position at UTC. The defense bargained they would not bring charges against the school of malicious prosecution."The case was dismissed in the 'Interest of Justice.' There was evidence sufficient for the charge, but there was also room for reasonable doubt," said Anderson. Anderson said he felt the UTC police force had done an excellent job in obtaining evidence for the case. Earlier reports said the case was dropped because of insufficient evidence. Anderson said this was not true. He added there was sufficient evidence for prosecution. "The UTC Police force is understaffed. However, they did a good job uncovering and investigating the case," he said.;..:.', , v, .
