Begin seeks Knesset support

overwhelming majority of the 120
Knesset members - most analysts said
90-100 votes - when the lawmakers
decide later this week on the two
"framework" agreements he
negotiated at Camp David with
President Carter and Egypt's Anwar
OPPOSITION leader Shimon Peres,
critical of Begin's handling of the
negotiations, told the Knesset his Labor
Party would reluctantly support the ac-
cords. But he asserted that they will
cost a "double price - the unavoidable
price of peace and the price for the
mistakes" of the government.
"We have chosen to be supporters of
the only existing possibility for peace,"
Peres said.
In related developments:
" Secretary of State Cyrus Vance

Mideast trip last week to sell the Camp
David accords to Jordan and Saudi
Arabia and to soften the opposition of

government sources said Hussein
would visit other Arab leaders this
week to explain his stand on the U.S.
peace initiative.
Hussein's participation is considered
crucial for talks on the future of the
Israeli-occupied West Bank of the Jor-
dan River, but he has expressed major
reservations about the accords' failure
to guarantee total Israeli withdrawal.
U.S. officials say Begin pledged
during the Camp David talks to halt
construction of new settlements until
full agreement is reached on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, which could take
up to five years.
BUT THE Israeli leader has insisted
he promised only a three-month freeze,
the planned period for final

negotiations with Egypt. He said
yesterday a careful check of Israeli
records from the summit showed his
memory was correct.
He said he promised Carter a freeze
during talks for a peace treaty - "and
today we are engaged in just one
negotiation, with Egypt." He added:
"As regarding adding manpower to
existing settlements, no problems
exist" and "we will reinfcorce them
with more families."
Begin said he would write Carter
reaffirming his stand on the length of
the freeze. The White House said last
week the dispute would be resolved
within a few days. There was no im-
mediate Washington comment on
Begin's new statements on the issue.
Hard-line nationalist Geula Cohen, a
Knesset deputy from Begin's Likud
bloc, disrupted the prime minister's
low-keyed 40-minute address, charging
that he was "cheating the nation" and
repeatedly calling for his resignation.

Ford said he looked forward to a net
Republican gain in November of 20-25
House seats, one to three in the'Senate,
and up to eight governorships. Curren-
tly the Republicans are outnumbered
approximately two-to-one in both the
435-member House and the 100-member
Senate. Republicans also hold only 12 of
the nation's 50 governorships.
FORD HAD some words of praise for
the Carter administration. "I applaud'
the results of (the Mideast summit at)
Camp David as we know them today,"
said the tired-looking ex-President.
"Obviously that success at Camp David
will enhance and benefit the
President." Ford added, "We have a

Ford had clearly come in order to
say, as he did twice in so many words,
that the Carter administration "blew
it" while formulating economic policy
in 1976 and that it will hurt the party in
power come election time.
"First they increased spending quite
significantly over the budget I had
proposed," Ford said. "And by that
process they reignited inflation, which
we had almost under control ...
"WHAT THEY HAVE to do now is
restrain the growth of federal spending
and in turn, in my opinion, that will
reduce the deficit.
When asked about his own political
future, Ford said he hasn't "really
given much thought to" a 1980 presiden-
tial race.
