Lebanese factions clash

BEIRUT, Lebanon (P) - Street battles raged through Beirut
and bombs exploded at intervals yesterday in the third day of
a deadly showdown between Palestinian guerrillas and a rightist
militia. The death toll soared to 80 in unofficial counts.
In the background of the clashes are rightist calls for tough-
er measures to control Palestinian guerrillas who, the rightists
say, incite reprisal raids from Israel.
THE FIGHTING between youths armed with lightweight
submachine guns and antitank rockets forced most businesses,
schools and government offices to close and pinned residents of
some quarters in their homes.
Police, Palestinians and rightists counted the unofficial death
toll, and more than 100 persons were reported wounded. But con-
tact was cut off with some embattled neighborhoods and exact
casualty figures were unavailable.
"They've been shooting all day and I hear explosions all the
time," said a Beirut resident holed up with two wounded by-
standers in the cellar of his apartment building since the shoot-
ing began. "I can see them sometimes carrying machine guns
in the street," he added in a telephone interview.
Rocky calls foreign policy
political issue in '76 race
TAIPEI (M) - Vice President Nelson Rockefeller said yes-
day that the outcome in Vietnam and the entire question of con-
gressional interference in American foreign policy "has the
makings of political issues," in the 1976 presidential race.
He said based on the combat outcome in Vietnam and con-
gressional reaction to President Ford's request for nearly $1 bil-
lion in military and humanitarian aid for Saigon, "the American
people will then make their own opinions during the course of
the next year."
PRESSED on whether it would be a big political issue for
the Republicans, he said: "Well, it's too early to tell but this is
what you call the makings of issues."
Rockefeller made the remarks in a wide-ranging interview
with three reporters accompanying him to Taiwan for the fun-
eral of Nationalist Chinese President Chiang Kai-shek.
He began the 70-minute conversation in the cabin of an Air
Force plane normally used by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
by disclaiming any public responsibility for foreign affairs.
"ANY DISCUSSIONS I've had with the President . . . is a
matter for the President to talk about and not me . . ." he said.
The former New York governor and long-time presidential
aspirant spoke of the frustrations of all of the men he knew who
had been vice president.
Of his own role he said, "The only function is presiding over
the Senate. Anything else is a staff job . . . I go on these trips,
make speeches."
But as the questions continued, Rockefeller began to expand,
particularly on the theme that Congress has shoved the White
House aside in foreign policy to the detriment of American na-
tional security.
