Israelis plans next peace moves

Conferees agree.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP)-The Israeli
government, armed with over-
whelming parilamentary backing for
the Camp David accords, began
detailed work yesterday on the next
s;eps toward peace with Egypt.
In Cairo, senior Egyptian Foreign
Ministry officials said preliminary-
mnieetings could begin as early as next
1Wednesday, Oct. 4, in the Suez Canal
city of Ismailia. Israeli army
specialists were preparing to leave for
Cairo today to reopen the direct com-
munication links that will facilitate
negotiations:
MEANWHILE, U.S. Mideast envoy
Alfred Atherton arrived from Jordan to
';rief Israeli officials on his swing
through Arab capitals.
The developments underscored the
two directions in which Israeli policy-
makers must face in the coming weeks:

along the relatively well-mapped path
to an 'agreement with Egypt, and
toward an uncertain cast of characters
and vague principles laid out by the
Camp David accords for eventual
agreement on the West Bank of the Jor-
dan River and the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli Parliament, the Knesset,
approved the Camp David plan by a
vote of 84-19 after an exhausting 17
hours of debate that ended at 3:30 a.m.
yesterday. The accords call for the
withdrawal of Israeli troops and
civilian settlements from the Sinai
Peninsula and return of the desert
region to Egypt. Thsey call on the two
countries to sign a treaty by mid-
December.
IN WASHINGTON, President Carter,
who had hailed the Knesset action as "a
great step forward," told a news con-
ference yesterday afternoon Begin and

President Anwar Sadat of Egypt told
him after the vote there are now "no
remaining obstacles" to an Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty.
Asked if he would go to the Middle
East for the treaty signing, Carter said:
"Nothing would please me more than to
participate in the signing of a peace
treay at an early date.'
Yigal Hurvitz, minister of commerce
and a member of Begin's own Likud
bloc, quit the Cabinet yesterday to
protest the accords, saying he didn't
want to "take part in this whole
process."
ALTHOUGH preparatory talks may
begin next week, Israeli officials said
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman, a key
negotiator, would not go to Egypt
before the end of the Jewish high holy
days-New Year next Monday and
Tuesday and Yom Kippur on Oct. 11.

The details that negotiators must
work out include the timetable for the
Israeli withdrawl from the Sinai, whose
first phase must be carried out within
three to nine months of the treaty-
signing; the future of Israeli invest-
ments in the peninsula, such as tourist
facilities and oil fields; traffice
arraygements between Israel and
Egypt,'and the future of the U.S.-
operated early-warning stations in the
Gidi and Mitla passes.
The evacuation of civilian and
military posts in the Sinai must be
completed in two to three years. The 18
civilian settlements now house 4,000
people.
Egy t's acting foreing minister,
Butro Ghali, said the Knesset vote
should encourage other Arab nations
"to think seriously about negotiating
with Israel so that we can achieve a
comprehensive peace in the region."
Ghali told the Associated Press in an
interview that Israel may voluntarily
end its military government in the West
Bank in the next three months.
"There is a general understanding
that there will be paralellism and syn-
chronization," Ghali said. "At the time
this Egyptian-Israeli treaty is con-
cluded, you can have the end of military
administration in the West Bank and
the Gaza."

the conference committee acted: "We
may not have gotten all we wanted, but
we are well on our way to having a
law."
THE HOUSE BILL had included a
credit for parents of pupils in private
elementary and secondary schools,
most of which are church-oriented.
That approach was rejected by the
Senate on grounds such aid would run
afoul of the Constitution's requirement
for separation of church and state.
Sen. Russell Long (D-La.), cheif of
the Senate conferees, along with Senate
backers of the elementary-secondary
have said there was no way the Senate,
in the closing days of the 1978 session,
would accept a compromise that
carried such aid.
Rep. James Burke (D-Mass.) said the
House would agree to dropping elemen-
tary aid and retain it for high school
and college but could go no furthr.
AFTER THE ENTIRE bill appeared
all but lost for the year, House mem-
bers caucused. behind closed doors,
emerged and voted 4-3 to drop their in-
sistence on elementary and secondary
aid.
Earlier, Long told the conference that
some items will be trimmed from a big
tax-cut bill if necessary to allow the
college tuition credit.
Backers reason that Carter would not
risk vetoing the big tax cut a few days
before the November election just to

TAKE THE SHOT.

defeat tuition credits.
But already the Carter ad-
ministration is emphasizing that it is
not happy with the Finance Commit-
tee's tax cut bill, mainly because of it
cost and the deep reduction in taxes on
capital gains.
"IT'S TOO LARGE, particularly il
the out-years (1980 and beyond) and it's
going to have to come down," Emil
Sunley, deputy assistant secretary of
the treasury, told reporters yesterday.
Administration officials, while ex-
pressing displeasure, have avoided an
outright veto threat at this point. They
know the Finance Committee bill may
be changed by the Senate and will be
compromised with a less expensive,
$16.3-billion version approved by the
House.
One obvious candidate for trimmin
is the Senate's capital gains tax cut o
$2.5 billion. The House voted a cut of
less than $1.9 billion in the tax on suc1
income. A compromise halfway betwer
those figures could make room in th
budget for the tuition tax credits.

as memory loss.
In the study, 896 Grand Rapids ani
Kalamazoo residents were given botl
blood and fat tests, and of the 101
analyzed, about 91 per cent had PBB i4
their blood, and 98 per cent had the
chemical in their fat, Fry said. Tracet
of PBB are reputed to be more easily
detected in fat than blood, he added.
722 persons from the Detroit area, a
well as the two cities of the previou
test, had only blood samples taken
Like the first subjects, approximatel
91 per cent of these were shown to con
tain PBB in their blood.
The highest level of PBB found in a
human was discovered in a Gr.an
Rapids resident: 37.2 parts per billion.
One part per billion is the level at whic
the chemical is considered potentiall
dangerous, and 20 parts per billion i
the maximum level allowed by the stat
in animals slaughtered for human con
sumption.
