Rabin's
resignation
TEL AVIV - Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin has thrown Is-
rael 'into political confusion and
cast uncertainty on Mid-East
peace moves by announcing his
resignation over a foreign cur-
rency probe.
Rabin now heads a caretaker
cabinet which must by law stay
in office until the May 17 gen-
eral elections. But he may be
able to take a leave of absence
and thus effectively retire from
his post.

Castro-Arafat
Kremlin talks
MOSCOW -- Cuban President
Fidel Castro flew home yester-
day after a behind-the-scenes
meeting with Palestinian lead-
er Yasser Arafat and detailed
Kremlin talks which apparently
concentrated on Soviet bloc

were issued but observers said
the Cuban leaders probably gave
Arafat a personal assurance of
Cuban support for the Palestin-
ian cause, similar -to a pledge
of backing the PLO leader re-
ceived yesterday from Commu-
nist Party leader Leonid Brezh-
nev.
Castro, who also had a pri-
vate meeting yesterday with ex-
iled Chilean Communist Luis
Corvalan, was seen off by Brezh-
nev, President Nikolai Podgor-
ny, Premier Alexei Kosygin and
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromy-
ko.
Castro and Corvalan, who was
released from a Chilean prison
last December in exchange for
Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukov-
sky, would probably have dis-
cussed what Cuba can do to help
Chilean Communists oppose the
miliitary junta of President Au-
gusto Pinochet, observers said.

Rabin

RABIN'S resignation announce-
ment, made while jubilant Is-
raelis were celebrating Maccabi
Tel Aviv's win in the European
Cup basketball finals in Bel-
grade Thursday night, caught
politicians by surprise.
The newly-formed Democratic
Movement for Change (DMC)
headed by Professor Yigal Ya-
din said it received the news
with shock and consternation.
But one of the leaders of the
Likud right - wing opposition,
Simma Erlich, said it was "a
final and compelling proof of
corruption through the country
as a result of extended Labor
leadership.",
ALTHOUGH Rabin himself
was not a prime target, his res-
ignation came amid increasing'
public anger at evidence of brib-
ery and corruption in high
places.
The issue of the bank account
first came to light about three
weeks ago and Rabin's wife said
it then contained 2,000 dollars.
Israelis are banned from hold-
ing foreign currency abroad.
Several Israeli newspapers re-
ported today that there was
18,000 dollars in the account on
the date in 1974 when it should
have been closed according to
Israeli law.
UP TO A DOZEN members
of the top Israeli establishment
have been convicted on corrup-
tion charges, including Asher
Yadlzn, governor - designate of
the Bank of Israel, who receiv-
ed a five-year jail term' in Feb-
ruary for bribery and tax eva-
sion.
Housing Minister Avraham Of-
er, a leading supporter of Mr.
Rabin, committed suicide three
months ago after being accused.
The Bob Woodward-Carl Bern-
stein story in the Washington

National
Steel talks
plod along
WASHINGTON - Negotiators
for the United Steelworkers un-
ion and the nation's 10 biggest
steel manufacturers reported
slow, steady progress yester-
day toward a new contract set-
tlement for nearly 340,000 work-
ers.
"We're making progress -
still fighting," said a union
negotiator who sat at the bar-
gaining table with President I.
W. Abel 'and the industry's top
man, J. Bruce Johnston of
United States Steel Corp.
BUT THEY remained at odds
over the, exact shape and size
of the job security and income
guarantees at the core of the
union's demands.
Under a no-strike agreement
that -has existed between the
union and the basic steel com-
panies since 1974, all major un-
resolved economic issues must
be submitted to binding arbi-
tration before April 20. Neither
side wanted to resort to arbi-
tration.
The key stumbling block was
Abel's dream of achieving
"lifetime job, security" for his
members before he retires in
June. He was building on ex-
isting security provisions in-.
eluding supplemental unem-
ployment benefits, extended
vacations, a 32-hour pay guar-
antee for each work week and
short-term income maintenance
for disabled workers.
The no-strike agreement also

cost of uranium.
IN ANNOUNCING
an end Thursday to U. S. gov-
ernment support for plutonium
processing, Carter said he will'
seek agreements with foreign
governments to restrict access
to plutonium, which can
used to make nuclear weapon
Several major U. S. allies-
Japan, West Germany, Britain
and France - already are com-
mitted to using plutonium in nu-
clear power plants, and to re-
processing spent nuclear fuel
to recover more plutonium.
Carter said, "I hope they will
join with us, and I believe they
'will, to limit the spread of plu-
tonium reprocessing technolo-
gy.
BUT WEST Germany already
has agreed to sell a reprocess-
ing plant to Brazil and France
is selling one to Pakistan. It is
just this type of deal, which
spreads plutonium technology,
that Carter wants to stop.
Carter enunciated seven poli-
cies that the United States will
follow, including a slowdown of
development of the nuclear
breeder reactor, which can cre-
ate plutonium from'an other-
wise useless form of uranium.
The President also proposed
legislation to assure foreign
countries of a supply of nu-
clear fuel from the United
States. This would allow other
countries to make use of nu-
clear energy without possessing
the material or technology to
manufacture bomb-grade fuel.
Rep. Barry Goldwater, (R-
Ariz.), said, "he's whistling
Dixie through a peanut shell if
he thinks other nations will
follow suit."
But.. Sen. John Glenn, (D-
Ohio), said he is in basic ac-
cord with Carter's decision, call-
ing it "the first step on the
energy path toward 'benefit-
without-bombs."'
Veterans
clear records
OVERLAND, Mo. -Vietnam-
era veterans who received less
than honorable discharges -
including deserters - ar e
swamping the government's
Joint Liaison Office here with
more than 3,000 telephone calls
a day seeking to have dis-
charges upgraded to honorable
status.
"At first we thought we
would be able to handle about
500 a day," said Brig. Gen.
Robert S. Young, commander
of the Military Personnel Re-
cords Center here. "But it ap-
pears now that, each telephone
interview is taking longer than

we expected and our limit is
probably between 3,000 and
4,004. }
AFTER THE initial call, ap-
plicants are advised by mail
that they may submit addition-
al data within 30 days for con-
sideration.
The .program, initiated by
President Carter to fulfill cam-
paign promises, applies to per-
sons who served in the armed
forces from Aug. 4, 1964, to
March 28, 1973. Bad conduct
discharges and dishonorable
discharges, which reflect court-
martial convictions, are not
considered for review, but
general, undesirable and clem-
ency discharges may - be up-
graded, depending on the cir-
cumstances.
The office's toll-free number
in the continental United States,
other than Missouri, is 80 32-
404. Persons in Missouri, Alas-
ka, Hawaii and Puerto Rico

Riegle wheels
anid deals?{
DETROIT - An insurance
man with Teamster connections
was identified yesterday as a
go-between for political contribu-
tions to Sen. Donald Riegle (D-
Mich.), from Polish-American
businessmen who want Marvin
Stempien nominated for "U.S.
attorney.
The Detroit News reported
that the funds were funneled
through Richard Mazur, 44,
of Bloomfield Hills, a business
leader in Detroit's, Polish
community who also is the
operator of a Teamsters Union
severance fund under federal
investigation.
A top aide to Riegle ack-
nowledged that Stempien, -a Liv-
onia attorney who once served
as Democratic floor leader in
the Michigan House, was one
of a dozen or more applicants
for the post. But the aide, Doug-
las Dibbert, denied that Mazur
wields any "major" influence
with Riegle. He described the
relationship between the two
mer' as "casual."

End of botulismj
PONTIAC - The outbreak of
botulism that struck 45 patrons
of a Mexican restaurant appar-
ently has ended. No new cases
were reported yesterday.
Oakland County Health Direc-
tor Dr. Robert Locey said the
last confirmed case was admit-
ted to St. Joseph Mercy Hos-
pital Wednesday. Despite its se-
verity, the botulism caused no
deaths.
The botulism, the most potent
toxin known to man, was traced
to improperly home - canned
green peppers at Trini and.
Carmen's Mexican Restaurant..
The tainted peppers, used in
almost every item served at the
establishment, were served'
between March 28 and March
31.
The brightest steady artificial
light sources are "laser"
beams.
Picasso was the most prolific
