BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - A cease-fire silenced the guns
in east'Beirut yesterday after tank-led Syrian troops pounded
a heavily populated Christian suburb in the bloody climax of'
three days of intensified fighting between the Syrians and
right-wing Lebanese militiamen.
The Christian rightist "Voice of Lebanon" radio said
preliminary counts indicated at least 220 Lebanese were
killed or wounded in fighting in seven districts. In one,
Ashrafieh, the Greek Orthodox hospital reported having 50
bodies in its morgue.
"THESE HAVE BEEN terrible hours," Lebanese Premier
Salim el-Hoss said from the Presidential Palace in Baabda, a
hilltop suburb that came under heavy shelling from
undetermined sources. President Elias Sarkis, Hoss and
Cabinet ministers who huddled at the palace in conference all
day were reported unharmed.
Syrian President Hafez Assad told Sarkis by telephone
from Damascus that his troops would stop firing at 3:30 p.m.,
Beirut state radio reported. Although shellfire continued for
a few minutes beyond the deadline, the stand-down was
generally holding after three hours.
But observers were not optimistic that the cease-fire would
hold.

THE EIGHT-MONTH-OLD conflict between the two civil,
war allies reached a new peak yesterday when Syrian troops
of the Arab League peacekeeping force launched armored -
assaults on the Christian suburb of Hadath. Previous fighting
had been limited to exchanges of shelling and sniper fire.
The port of Beirut, where street-to-street gun battles broke
out, was among the other districts engulfed in new fighting
yesterday.
Reports conflicted on whether the Syrians had taken
Hadath, a town of 40,000, or had pulled out after raiding
rightist positions. The rightist'radio described the embattled
town as a "new Stalingrad" and said the militiamen were
continuing to resist Syrian assaults.
FOR THE FIRST time, the Syrians conceded "heavy
losses," blaming them on new rightist artillery stationed in
the hills east and north of the capital. In one unconfirmed
report, the rightist radio said a militia force in east Beirut
surrounded 20 Syrians who raided a pharmacy for drugs and
"wiped out" all of them.
BEFORE THE new casualty reports yesterday, it had been
estimated that 630 Lebanese and an undetermined number of
Syrians had been killed since the rightists first clashed with
the peacekeeping force last February.

"I barely have time for my family,"
he said, "let alone campaigning."
Trowbridge has not resigned his
council seat yet, but will do so as soon
as he sells his house and moves. That
will be before January, he said.

The city charter provides that the
council itself will appoint someone to
fill the remainder of his term. The
'Republicans now have seven of the
eleven votes on council, and would
likely select a Republican successor to
Trowbridge.

Kids get chance to

learn foreign tongues

ded.
"The teachters are also sensitive to
the feelings of American kids, so not a
great deal of grammar is taught in the
class. Rather, emphasis is placed on
games, songs and spoken material,"
Kolvos said.
THE PROGRAM in its second year,
was expanded this term, largely
because of the popularity it enjoyed last
year.
"Last year we had a long waiting
list," said Kolovos. "The program will
continue to expand if we can meet a
larger demand."

Learning a foreign language should
not be a traumatic experience, Kolovos
said.
"We operate under the assumption
that learning a language is fun," she
said.
"I remembered one day last year
when I entered a French class. I was
amazed at how well the children were
speaking. But they were also having a
good time. They approached it not just
as a learning experience, but also as
fun. Everyone, including myself, had a
ball," she concluded.
The program costs $15 for 10 lessons.
