From AP and Reuter
METULLAH, Israel - Israeli heavy
artillery pounded suspected
Palestinian positions in southern
Lebanon yesterday in an apparent
revenge strike for an earlier guerrilla
bombing in Jerusalem.
Residents of the northern border
town, Metullah, heard the guns open up
a half-hour barrage shortly after 7 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time.
THE SHELLS could be seen landing
in the area of Bofort, four miles from
the Israeli border, the site of a
Crusader casfle which Palestinians
long had used as a stronghold.
Earlier yesterday, a bomb planted by
Arab guerrillas and hidden inside a
pickle can blew up in a crowded market
in the Jewish sector of Jerusalem, in-
juring 21 people. The blast occurred as
U.S. mediator Arthur Atherton gave
Israeli officials several U.S.
suggestions for solving problems
blocking a Mideast peace treaty.
The mid-morning explosion , in
Jerusalem tore through the bustling
open-air Mahane Yehuda market, sen-
ding shrapnel and splinters from
vegetable stands into the throng of pre-
Sabbath shoppers.
Liberation Organization said in Beirut
that one of its underground units in

Israel was responsible. It said the unit
was named for Abu Ali Iyad, a senior
military leader of the Al Fatah killed in
Jordan's 1970-71 civil war.
A spokesman at Shaarei Zedek
Hospital said 21 victims were treated.
He said 15 had been sent home and the
remaining six were in good condition.
Israeli Radio reported that the bomb
apparently was concealed in a large tin
can that usually contained pickles. The
container had been searched by the
owner of the vegetable shop, who said
he thought it was empty.
THE SAME market was the scene of
a terrorist explosion in June that killed
two Israelis and wounded 47. Nearly 10
years ago, 12 persons were killed and
more than 50 wounded when a car bomb
exploded in the area, near the busy Jaf-
fa Road and less than a mile from the
walls of Jerusalem's old city.
Last Saturday three Palestinian
guerrillas were killed while trying to
seize hostages in Ma'alot, another bor-
der settlement.
In Washington, State Department
spokesman Hodding Carter said of the
market bombing, "We condemn this
terrorist act and we condemn those who
perpetrated it."
IN DAMASCUS, where the Palestine
parliament-in-exile is meeting, a PLO
spokesman said the blast "proves that
the resistance continues in the occupied
Sources at the session said the PLO's
293 representatives had unanimously
decided to outlaw any participation in
the American-backed peace proposals
for the Mideast. This was aimed at
preventing moderates within the group
such as Arafat from taking part in the
proposed self-rule project in the
Israeli-occupied territories, the sources

Meanwhile, Ambassador-at-large
Atherton spoke with reporters after his
second session with Israeli officials on
solving the language problems blocking
agreement on a draft Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty.
WASHINGTON-sponsored talks on
the treaty have been bogged down since
Atherton said he had engaged in 'in-.
tensive 'discussions" on three;
paragraphs in the draft and that the-
United States had "put forth certain-
suggestions of ways in which we think:
these problems might be resolved."
Israeli representative Eliahu Ben-
Elissar refused to characterize any,
reaction to the U.Sasuggestions. Israeli
Radio quoted Ben-Elissar as saying
there were difficulties in the talks and
other sources were reported as saying
there was no crisis.

In Washington, a U.S. official
disclosed that the United States has
decided to register its regret over
Israel's decision to build three new set-
tlements'on land captured from Arabs
during the 1967 Mideast war. Two of the
settlements are on the West Bank of the
Jordan River and one in the Gaza Strip.
And, in Tel Aviv, a government
committee announced it has decided to
bar 3,000 Arabs from returning to two
villages on the Lebanese border they
were forced to leave iiq 1948. Begin had
made a campaign promise to try to
allow the villagers to return.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - San Fran-

Wednesday evening's accident, but at a
morning news conference, BART
General Manager Keith Bernard said
the cause of the fire was still unknown.
ALTHOUGH BART was running on
both sides of the bay, the 3.6-mile tube,
charred and still hot from the fire, was
shut down.
FIreman William Elliott, 50, of
Castro Valley, apparently died of
smoke inhalation while fighting the
blaze that struck a sai Francisco-
bound train speeding through the tube
with about 40 passengers aboard.
At' least 35 persons, including 25
firemen, five BART employees and
three passengers, were hospitalized as
a result' of the 4 -hour fire. One
fireman was in serious condition.

"I was one of Absolute
Sound's first customers.
Although I already had an expensive
stereo system, I wasn't satisfied with
the sound. At other stores, I found
myself trading up for more knobs and
flashier cosmetics- not better per-
formance. But at Absolute Sound, I
found I could buy better-sounding
equipment for less money. An example
of this was the GAS Grandson amp-
lifier, which at $340, easily out-
performed the $850 amplifier I then
"I took a job with Absolute
Sound because it was the only stereo
store I found where I could face my
friends and truthfully recommend the

"More than 80% of our
customers are referred to Absolute
Sound by previous customers. That
makes me feel good about the job
we're doing. You see, I never "sell"

my knowledge and experience.
Absolute Sound customers are generally
self-assured individuals who know good
sound when they hear it. They appre-

More than fifty percent of the world is starving.
Another twenty percent, just plain hungry. And yet, in the
face of starvation, they have hope. Hope that the rains will
return to the African Plain. Hope that the Asian rice crop
will be bigger this year. Hope that someone, anyone, with
anything to offer will come to help them fight the battle for
life. Someone in the Peace Corps. They'd like to stand up
for themselves, these prisoners of fate, but they're just
too weak to stand up. But with the Peace Corps a flame
begins to flicker. They've seen other like you before. Seen
the changes you can bring. Two thousand wells on the
parched earth of Sahel. Seen how their knowledge helped
reduce the grain losses. Who are they? They're people
pretty much like you. People with commitment and skills
who've assessed their lives and decided there must be
more than just having a job. They looked into themselves,
.and knew it was time for the talk to end and the work to
begin. They're very special people, these people. Totally
prepared to give everything they've got. And getting back
even more than they give. That's the beauty of the Peace
Corps. The work is hard and the pay is
lousy, and the progress comes a drop
at a time. But the rewards are infinite.
Join the Peace Corps and then
take a good long look in the mirror.
You'll never look the same to
yourself again.
