ifornia congressman she wrote the
disputed memo linking a commit-
ment of at least $200,000 by In-
ternational Telephone & Tele-
graph Corp. (ITT) to the Repub-\
lican National Convention and the
out-of-court settlement of anti-
trust suits pending against the
conglomerate, according to the
transcript of a newspaper inter-
view released yesterday by Sen.
John Tunney (D-Calif.).
In an interview March 3 with
a San Diego Union reporter, Rep.
Bob Wilson (R-Calif.), is quoted
as saying Beard was trapped into
writing the memo as the result of
an intraoffice feud.
Beard has denied under oath
that she wrote the memo, which
was published by columnist Jack
Versions of the transcript ap-
peared in the Union and the Bal-
timore Sun yesterday, and in a
telegram to Chairman James East-
land of the Senate Judiciary Com-

Sun story was inaccurate.
Wilson was not available for
comment. But in the telegram he
said, "I did not say in that inter-
view nor have I ever said that

The Union sent a telegram to

CAIRO UiP)-Egypt has severed
relations with Jordan in retalia-
tion for King Htlssein's proposal
to create a semiautonomous
state of Palestine on the occu-
pied West Bank of the Jordan
River, President Anwar Sadat
announced last night.
Addressing the Palestinian
National Council, Sadat also de-
clared that Egypt will fight Is-
rael "to defend Egypt's rights as
well as the Palestinians' rights.
We will fight from house to
house if necessary and pay the
price in blood."
Referring to the break with
Jordan, Sadat stated that he
took the action with regret, but
that Egypt could not let the
Jordanian front, their eastern
front against Israel, "become an
open door to the enemy."
As for Hussein's proposal, Sa-
dat charged it was drafted by
