By The Associated Press
Israel announced yesterday it has
started a gradual withdrawal from
southern Lebanon that was occupied
last month in an attack against
Palestine guerrillas. A U.N. source said
Israel was pulling back six miles, to
within three miles of its border.
The Israeli military command said
its soldiers were being replaced by
United Nations peacekeeping troops.
A COMMUNIQUE from the com-
mand said, "The withdrawal plan
will be made public anly after the sub-
ject has been finalized with the U.N.

But the U.N. source in Jerusalem
said: "The Israelis told us they are
pulling back about 10 kilometers (six
miles) from their forward positions
along the Litani River. That will leave
them with a five-kilometer-wide strip of
south Lebanon along the Israeli bor-
Israel said a "significant thinning-out
of forces" had been going on for a week.
A military spokesman said the flow of
Israeli troops across the frontier was a
changing of the guard and the removal
of nonessential units.
IN NEW YORK, U.N. Secretary-
General Kurt Waldheim said about

1,800 U.N. troopers have been deployed
so far in southern Lebanon with the
total force to number 4,000. He reported
3,000 will be in place by next week.
Israel had said earlier it would with-

Waldheim's report said 672 French
soldiers, 195 Iranians, 224 Swedes and
690 Norwegians are now in place bet-
ween the Israelis and Palestinians.
Norwegian troops were arriving in
Tel Aviv and gradually moving north
from an Israeli army base to take up

The nation's longest coal strike has
now become history and shipments of
coal are returning to normal. For Detroit
Edison customers this means you have
all the electricity you need, but we hope
you will continue to use it wisely.
Unlike many other states, Michigan
-was able to avoid mandatory power cut-
offs through careful planning and the
cooperation of business, government and
consumers. By buying electricity from
outside sources and by burning alternate
fuels like natural gas and oil, Detroit

Edison was able to stretch its supply of coal
and help avoid shutdowns and layoffs. Of
course, this ws more expensive and the
costs will be reflected in higher electric
bills for April, May and June.
For the average customer using 500
kilowatt hours, this could amount to
between $2 and $3 more than
billed in March.
The recent crisis once again points
out the need for energy consciousness on
the part of everyone. So while coal is
beginning to move again, Detroit Edison

would like to remind all its customers
to use good judgement in their use of
electricity. This especially holds true for
major energy users like refrigerators,
furnace blowers, air conditioners and
electric clothes dryers. The more
wisely these appliances are used, the
more the savings in energy and money
will count up.
Detroit Edison thanks you for your
cooperation during the coal strike and
reminds you to save where it really
counts. The power is in your hands.
