Resting up

condition yesterday after being admitted to St.
Joseph Mercy Hospital. A hospital spokesperson

was in only for diagnostic testing. According to the
Hospital, the 57-year-old Ford will remain for sev-
eral days, but will depart on schedule next week
for a business trip to the People's Republic of

Young toughs
There's a tough new state's attorney in Mulberry,
Florida, and he's decided to come down hard on
criminals with guns. No copped pleas, no plea bar-
gaining, just law and order. And so, a 6-year-old
boy and his four-year-old brother have been charg-
ed with burglary in the theft of a neighbor's pistol.
The boys were charged with entering a neigh-
boring home and making off with a .22 caliber pis-
tol. The desperadoes were apprehended by vigilant
police before they commited any acts of wanton
violence, but the bullets from the gun were miss-
ing, oficials said. Florida law forbids revealing
the names of the street toughs, but set no min-
imum age limit for charging law violators. The
charges were filed by asst. state attorney Mark
Orr, but his boss Glen Darty says the charge will
be dropped. A police officer recounted the tale of
their arrest: "The older boy was very frightened
and the 4-year-old did not even know he had done
anything wrong. When I advised them of their
constitutional rights, they naturally had no idea
what I was talking about." Arraignment for the
pairis scheduled for later this month. May justice
be done.,
Hanging in there
Jack Kennedy may be an angel with a slipped
halo, but he's still an angel in Burlington, Iowa. The
Catholic School Board there voted 15-0 Monday
to keep the former President's picture hanging in
the library of Notre Dame High School despite re-
cent reports that Kennedy may have led the bed-
hopping life of "Jack the Zipper." A local busi-
nessman and father of three students at the school
first started the controversy by suggesting that it
be removed from the library. But in voting to re-

tain the portrait one Board member stated, "I
would like to have Kennedy remembered as a
President rather than as a Catholic. le belongs
in the library out of a sense of patriotism." May-
be Sargent Shriver can recover from his whomping"
in the Iowa delegate caucus to stammer thanks on
behalf of the clan.

Zorn states in his letter that the radar an-

Policy on Classified Research that declares:
"The University will not enter into or renew

the professors who authored the proposal, refused

B E I R U T - Leftwing
forces overran the Chris-
tian town of Damour yes-
terday and a Palestinian
guerrilla chief disclosed
that Palestine Liberation
Army units had crossed
from Syria to take part in
the civil war.
A rightwing spokesperson
confirmed claims by Pales-
tinian sources that Dam-
our, 12 miles south of Bei-
rut, had fallen after being
besieged for several days.
HE SAID leftwing forces
were burning the town house by
house, and that 6,000 people, in-
cluding 1,000 children, had fled
to the nearby village of Saadi-
yat which was itself being heav-
ily bombarded.
The spokesman said there was

than 200. That raises the toll
since Jan. 1 to more than 2,050,
in addition to the estimated
8,000 killed last year.
INTERIOR Minister Camille
Chamoun, 76-year-old leader of
one of the private Christian
groups fighting Moslems and
Palestinians, called for foreign
intervention in the crisis after
he was evacuated by helicopter
from his besieged seaside man-
sion south of Beirut.
Chamoun, who as president in
1958 called in U. S. Marines to
end another civil situation,
charged Monday night that up
to 15,000 Syrian army troops
had crossed into Lebanon. The
Syrian government and Pales-
tine guerrilla leaders denied it,
and U. S. State Department
and Israeli military officials
discounted Chamoun's charge.

Large number of Palestinian
guerrillas have been involved
in the war for months, but only
in recent days have there been

ISRAEL military sources said
the Palestinian army could tip
the balance to the Moslems in
the battle for Beirut. They es-
timated that Moslem and Chris-
tian forces were otherwise
about evenly divided with some
20,000 fighters each.
Palestinian sources said that
Israel was massing troops along
Lebanon's southern border,, but
Lebanese authorities denied it.
Israeli Defense Minister Shi-'
mon Peres toured the border
and said the presence of large
numbers of Palestinian guer-
rillas in the neighboring coun-
try had "direct implications on
Israel's security."

WASHINGTON 4P)-President
Ford had some success yester-
day in winning support from
governors and mayors for his
block grant approach to social
welfare programs, but did not
win universal backing for the
$394.2 billion budget he will
send to Congress today,
Spokespersons for a bipartisan

delegation of seven governors
and six mayors told reporters
after meeting and lunching with
Ford that they generally ap-
plauded the idea of providing
block grants rather than cate-
gorical grants.

The CIA yesterday confirmed reports that it is
currently conducting job interviews on campus.
Details of the interviews have not been released.
The University's Career Planning and Place-
ment Office said yesterday it had no knowledge
of any CIA recruiting. The office usually coor-
dinates the efforts of organizations seeking to
recruit students.
THE HUSH-HUSH atmosphere surrounding the
interviews is unusual for the intelligence agency,


whose recruiting efforts are frequently well-pub-
However, the interviews scheduled last No-

Kissinger warns Soviets against
continued involvement in Angola

Budget scoop: But
mum 's the word
WASHINGTON (P)-Shhh! This story is being leaked to
President Ford and most of his Cabinet met for 12
hours yesterday with a couple of hundred reporters to explain
the administration's fiscal 1977 budget.
The President himself conducted the press conference.
It was a show and tell session for reporters who were under
instruction not to tell for 24 hours.
PRESS SECRETARY Ron Nessen warned that anything
said was under the same restriction as information about
the budget.
If asked, you are not reading this until 10 a.m. today.
The information inside the budget, its phone-book-size
appendix, its statistical analyses and a book that focuses on
70 issues, has been available to a chosen few in Washington
since Monday.
THE LUCKY ones are hundreds of reporters, 535 con-
gresspersons and their staffs, every government agency and
department in town. Each copy bears a notice about the
embargo for public release.
Helping keep the secret secret a little while longer were
a thousand or more persons who managed to sit in on the
presidential briefing in the State Department's auditorium.

MOSCOW-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger arrived here
yesterday in search of a breakthrough on arms talks, but warned
that the United States cannot accept continuing Soviet involve-
ment in Angola.

of neighboring Zambia to discuss a peace settlement for the war-

conflict, have agreed the Communist-backed Popular Movement
(MPLA) should take the leading role in a MPLA-UNITA coalition
