WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Reagan Administra-
tion seemed to be nudging
Syria this week to play a
more helpful role in the ef-
fort toward national recon-
ciliation in Lebanon.
State
Department

spokesman John Hughes
conceded that there are
questions raised about
Syria's behavior and "inten-
tions" in Lebanon. At the
same time, he stressed that
Syria has not suggested to
the U.S. that it is "backing

away" from its "commit-
ment" in Lebanon toward
the cease-fire, now in effect,
and the effort to have a
meeting aimed at national
reconciliation among the
various groups.
State
Department
sources were "uncertain"
if reconciliation efforts
have come to an end
and fighting will be re-
sumed between the various
factions, or whether the
situation was at a
standstill.
Reports from the Na-
tional Security Council
meeting Tuesday which dis-
cussed the Middle East are
that the U.S. believes the
Syrians are deliberately
impeding progress because
they are opposed to a
negotiated settlement in
Lebanon. State Department
officials cautioned that the
Administration's high level
review of U.S. policy in the
Middle East is continuing

and no decisions have been
made.

The officials noted that in
Lebanon, it is difficult to
pinpoint blame for various
cease-fire violations. They
said the sniper attacks
against the U.S. Marines
.were definitely not from Sy-
rian controlled areas but
the shelling of the Lebanese
army was.

In response to questions,
State Department officials
denied that the Syrian atti-
tude is an effort to get U.S.
pressure on Israel to return
the Golan Heights to Syria.
One official said the Golan
Heights were never a part of
the discussions in the cur-
rent situation in Lebanon.
When Hughes was asked
what incentives the U.S.
can offer Syria to be helpful
in Lebanon, he replied, a
stable Lebanon is in the
interest of most govern-
ments in the region.

Recovery Plan Is Outlined,
No-Confidence Vote Beaten

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
coalition easily defeated an
opposition no-confidence
motion in the Knesset on
Wednesday. The motion,
backed by the Labor Align-
ment, Shinui and the
Hadash (Communist) Party
was defeated by a 61-54 vote
after an abrasive debate

over the government's eco-
nomic policies.
The debate gave the
newly-installed finance
minister, Yigal Cohen-
Orgad, an opportunity to
outline the measures he in-
tends to take to extricate
the country from its current
economic crisis. He pre-
dicted that the crisis would
end "within the very near
future" and accused the op-
position of exaggerating its
depth, thereby damaging
public confidence.
Opposition spokesmen
focussed on two issues — the
aborted plan of former Fi-
nance Minister Yoram
Aridor to link Israel's cur-
rency exclusively to the
U.S. dollar and the govern-
ment's apparent agreement
to bail out commercial
banks by shoring up the
price of bank shares when
the Tel Aviv Stock Ex-
change resumes trading,
probably this Sunday.
Cohen-Orgad listed
five economic measures
he intends to implement:
budget cuts; restrained
public consumption; a
freeze on living
standards; broader-
based taxation; and pro-
tection for the weaker
sectors of society.
He said he would strive to
reduce Israel's $5 billion
foreign trade deficit by half.
He announced that he has
invited Histadrut Secretary
General Yeruham Meshel
to meet with government
representatives and the
private business sector to
discuss cooperative meas-
ures. The talks are intended
"to create social and eco-
nomic calm," he said.
Shamir, in his inaugural
speech to the Knesset Oct.
10, warned that the country
has been living too long be-
yond its means and said he
would institute an austerity
regime until economic
health is restored.

Love covers all transgres-
sions.
