Lebanese leader may resign


BEIRUT, Lebanon (P) - Le-
banese politicians agreed on a
face-saving resignation formula
for the defiant Christian presi-
dent yesterday as Christian and
Moslem gunmen fought the heav-
iest artillery battle of the civil
war, informed sources said.
President Suleiman Franjieh,
whose resignation is demanded
by leaders of a Moslem army
coup, and more than two-thirds
of the members of parliament,
participated in the compromise
negotiations but gave no public
promise to abide by the form-

said, however, he ple'lged to
President Hafez Assad of Syria
to give up his struggle to re-
main in office after a delay de-

Beirut radio said Franjieh, a
Maronite Christian, gave his ac-
cord to the resignation scenario
at an emergency cabinet meet-
ing with Moslem Premier Rash-
id Karami at the Baabda pres-
idential palace east of Beirut.

POLICE said nearly 2,000
rounds were fired in the Ctrist-
ian barrage and withering ie-

artillery batteries, lighting the
early morning sky and sending
people running for cover
throughout the day.
Security officials estimated at
least 40 persons were killed.
They acknowledged this was a
guess since only combatants
ventured into the hot zones.
Cars with loudspeakers tour-
ed the city, appealing for blood
donations to treat the wounded.
