Mangum, Student Shows Concern For Iranian Situation By Cathy Gant Since its development the hostage situation in Iran has caused conflict and hostility between Iranian students in the United States and its citizens. There have even been violent clashes between Iranians and Americans in Texas and Washington. But Iranian students interviewed on A&T's campus say they haven't experienced negative fellings from fellow Aggies. Ali, a junior electrical engineering major, says, however, that he has received stares and hard looks from people outside of the campus area. And, although Aggies remain unopposing to Ali and his countrymen, there is still a problem. The United States will not let him receive money coming from his parents in Iran. Without the money Ali can't pay his rent, buy food, gas, or clothing. And, if the hostages aren't released soon, he won't be able to pay next semester's tuition. He can't get a job to support himself because it is illegal under his student visa and as a result, he would be deported. Even though his countrymen seem to be at the root of his troubles, Ali strongly supports them. He says, "The United States should return the Shah to our country. During his regime and his father's (before his), hundreds of thousands of people were killed. A lot of my friends got killed." If the Shah should give back his alleged billion dollar fortune to Iran, Ali would still want the Shah to be returned to stand trial for the murders which he supposedly, orchestrated. "People who lost loved ones cannot replace them with the money," he explained. Ali doesn't totally agree with the way the Ayatollah is running his country, but he does not support him. Ali says he earnestly believes that, "The Ayatollah Khomeni has given hope to the people and they believe in him." So until Iran releases its captives, Ali will remain a victim of unfortunate political circumstances, along with 50 American hostages. president of the Alphas.said of their organizations' impressive showing in the ROTC sponsored blood drive, "We encouraged all members to donate. It was a joint attempt to win the money and to show that we could win something through a joint effort by our entire membership." Mrs. Loretta LeGrand, secretary for the Department of Aerospace Science, sponsored the $100 as a memorial to her late husband. George C. LeGrand, her spouse, was an A&T alumnus who worked as an administrative assistant with the Guilford County Health Jones Is 'Driving Force' Behind Successful Play By Sheron Newkirk She is the driving force behind the produtction of "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When The Rainbow Is Enuf,"by Ntozake Shange. Sandra Jones, a junior professional theater major from Winterville, N.C, stated that "It was quite an honor for me to have directed this play. This is the second play I've directed here at A&T, the first being "What the Winesellars Buy', a moral play by Ron Milner in 1977." "Directing plays was quite an experience; it was a big task and at times, I felt it was an impossible task," said Jones. Jones is now reminiscing on the first play that she directed at A&T. Directing 'Winesellars' was a very exciting adventure. I employed my experience and intuition. It took a lot of faith in myself and my creative (See Jones, Page 3) Ronald Mangum Department until his death this past spring.
