From the Assoctd Press
JERUSALEM-Israel radio said
yesterday that President Carter failed
Wednesday to quiet Israeli fears that
the United States might approve
changes in United Nations Resolutin
242-changes that would e detrimental
to Israel.
The sketchy radio report, which
Israeli officials refused to confirm, was
the first with any details of the Wed-
nesday meeting at the White House
between Carter and Israeli Am-
bassador Ephraim Evron. Official
Israeli reaction is not likely until the
Israeli cabinet meeta Sunday.
Israeli uneasiness focuses on
diplomatic efforts at United Nations
headquarters in New York Ito sup-
plement the 12-year old UN Security
Council Resolution 242 with a new
document granting political status to
Palestinian refugees.
The United States has said it would
veto a draft resolution sponsored by
Kuwait-calling for the right of
Palestinians to self-determination and
to a homeland. But the radio said Car-
ter failed to give the sought-after wider
commitment to veto any draft
touching Resolution 242.
Without assurances tht the U.S.
would veto any tampering with
Resolution 242, the principal strain in
relations between the two allies would
remain unrelieved.
The 1967 resolution was the first ac-
cepted by both Israel and the Arabs and
became the foundation of later peace
talks. It calls on Israel to withdraw
from occupied Arab territory, and on
the Arabs to recognize Israel's right to
exist within secure and recognized bor-
ders. The Palestinians are mentioned
only assa refugee problem.
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan charged earlier this week that
the United States wanted a new
resolution detrimental to Israel in an
effort to appease Saudi Arabia and
protect U.S. oil supplies. American of-
ficials denied the charge.
Two other disputed issues raised in
Wednesday's meeting, according to the
radio, were an American-Soviet
proposal to station unarmed U.N. truce
observers in the Sinai Peninsula to
supervise peace, and U.S. complaints
that Israel's bombing raids on
Palestinian guerrilla targets in
southern Lebanon may have violated
U.S. arms sales agreements.
The state radio said Evron com-
plained about U.S. protesta that Israeli
bombing raids in Lebanon may have
violated the terms of American arms
contracts.
Evron acknowledged civilians were
killed in the frequent raids, but argued
the air strikes were aimed at ases
from which terrorista launch attacks on
Israeli civilians, the radiosaid.
He also said the United States did not
consult Israel sufficiently before
presenting a yU.S-Soviet proposal to
replace a UN. peacekeeping force in
the Sinai Desert with unarmed truce

Administration probes HUD head
Landrieu's real estate dealings

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter's press secretary said yesterday
the real estate dealings of Moon Lan-
drieu, named to become secretary of
housing and urban development, are
being looked into by the White House
staff for possible conflicts of interest.
Jody Powell said he did not know
whether Landrieu gave Carter full
details of his real estate partnership
before the president picked him to
become HUD secretary.
And Powell stopped short of predic-
ting that Landrieu would be confirmed,
saying only, "We feel confident these
matters will be fully aired and dealt
with satisfactorily at the confirmation
hearings."
Landrieu went to work for Joseph
Canizaro Interests Inc. the day after he

left office as mayor of New Orleans on
May 1, 1978. His salary, not made
public, was reputed to be around
$100,000 a year.
A report in the New York Times said
Landrieu did not put up any money for
the partnership but did agree to pay for
his share at some future time out of
profits.
It quoted Landrieu as estimating that
his interest in the partnership is now
worth as much as $500,000.
As mayor, Landrieu helped work out
a swap in 1974 in which New Orleans
gave Canizaro 3.7 acres of city property
in return for 1.5 acres of land owned by
Canizaro.
The land acquired by Canizaro in this
deal is now part of Canal Place, a river-
front development near the city's

famed French Quarter. Landrieu is
now chairman of the Canizaro company
and president of the Canal Place
development.
Powell was asked whether White
House officials are concerned that Lan-
drieu's confirmation might be in
jeopardy.
Powell said presidential nominees go
through a process of "discussing
possible conflicts or appearances of
conflicts with the White House before
their confirmation hearings. That has
been the case in this case, and we feel
confident that these matters will be
fully aired and dealt with satisfactorily
at the confirmation hearings."
"There are always questions that
have to be resolved," he added.
