JERUSALEM - Israel sent its
warplanes against Palestinian targets
in Lebanon for a second straight day
yesterday and then invited the
Lebanese to negotiate peace. Prime
Minister Menachem Begin vowed con-
tinued attacks on bases of "terrorists
who spill the innocent blood of men,
women and children."
Lebanon firmly rejected Begin's in-
vitation to peace talks and accused
Israel of committing barbaric
aggression against its territory.
Prime Minister Selim Al-Hoss, in a
lengthy statement carried by the state-
run Beirut radio, said continuing Israeli
attacks on Lebanon represented
blackmail in its ugliest form.
"BEGIN'S CALL for Lebanon to con-
clude a peace treaty with Israel is
amazing," Boss said. "It comes after
barbaic Israeli aggression against
Lebanese territory which has caused
the deaths of many peaceful people as
well as extensive damage.
"The aim of these aggressions is
blackmail in its ugliest form as a
preface to this (peace) step," he said.
The Israeli raid Sunday, which repor-
tedly killed six and wounded 25 other
persons, was aimed at a refugee camp
in the northern Lebanese town of Nahr
El-Bared, near Mohmara. Israeli gun-
boats shelled the town last month after
guerrillas landed on the northern
Israeli coastinda raid on the town of
Nahariya in which four Israelis were
killed, including two children. Two of
the four guerrillas were killed.
Yesterday's air raid, in which no
casualties were reported, was made on
a Palestinian guerrilla-held area 11
miles inside Lebanon near the town of
ISRAELI JETS hit the area just one
hour before Begin opened the summer
session of the Knesset, the Israeli
Parliament, with an offer to meet
Lebanese President Elias Sarkis on
Israeli or neutral soil to negotiate a

LANSING - University and state of-
ficials yesterday laid ground rules for
bargaining over the $254 million plans
to replace University Hospital.
Hermann Ziel, chief of Health Care
Administration in the Michigan Depar-
tment of Public Health (MDPH) told
University officials that any changes in
the plans would have to be hammered
out in meetings at the state level.
In addition to officials from the MD-
PH, the meetings will include represen-
tativeds from the legislature's Joint
Capital Outlay Committee and the
Department of Management and
Budget - both of which will have in-
fluence on the extent of state funding
for the hospital project.
