TRIPOLI, Libya '-The Libyan govern-
ment confirmed early today that it's
leader, Col. Moammar Khadafy, resigned
on July It. But the statement said the
resignation was refused the same day.
Cairo's official M i d d I e East N e w s
Agency reported last night that Khadafy
announced his resignation in a message
to President Anwar Sadat of Egypt, not-
ing thit he took the action July 11.
TODAY'S COMMUNIQUE from the ru-
ing Revolutionary Command C o u n c it
(RCC) of which Khadafy is chairman,
confirmed that the libyan strongman step-
ped down July 11, but added: "The mem-
bers of the RCC rejected the resignation
on the very day it was presented by Cot
The council communique was carried y
the official Libyan News Agency. It said
Khadafy resigned his posts as president
and chairman of the council in a cable
to Sadat to clear the way for the proposed
merger between the two Arab nations.
It said Khadafy had "no atithority" tos
resign, since he was called to leadership
by the will of the Libyan people.
KHADAFY HAS periodically resigned
or threatened to resign in the past, but
has remained in firm control if the lead-
ership among the young Libyan officers
who toppled the monarchy of King Idris
in September 1969.
He has been chairman of the ruling
council ever since. He became president
a year ago after resigning as premier.
That post was taken by Maj. Abdel Salarim
Jalloid, another council merrber.
The Cairo news agency report indicates
Khadafy reaffirmed his resignation yes-
terday in a message 1i Sadat in which
he disclaimed responsibility for a march
by 20,000 Libyans into Egypt.
THE "UNITY TREK" was designed to
push the Egyptians, who prefer to go
slow on the mrerger, toward Khadafy's
objective of union by Sept .
Instead of promotig unity, the trek
and Khadafy's message yesterday appar-
ently have created greater friction
The Egyptians blew up a section of the
main highway to Cairo near Mersa Ma-
truh on yesterday to halt the six-mile-
long Libyan procession.
KHADAFY SPENT 17 days in Cair,
ending early this month, in a vain quest
for his goal of early union between oil-
rich but sparsely populated Liba and
its populous but poor neighbor.
The young Libyan was quoted as saying
his fellow officers had tried to dissuade
him and that he had "resigned frt the
realization of unity with Egypt and eras-
ing its obstacles."
The report was published in Cairo sirt'
ly after the release of an appeal by Saiat
to the Libyan leadership to halt "an in-
vasion" by the unity t r e k k e r s from

SpecIal to The Daiy
CADILLAC, MI. - Under intense cross
examination during the trial of Rainbow
People's Party (RPP) members Pun Pla-
mondon and Craig Blazier, prosecution
witness Uwe Wagner revealed the exist-
ence of taped conversations between him-
self and State Police officers.
Defense counsel Hugh "Buck" Davis
claimed the tapes may reveal contradic-
tions with Wagner's sworn testimony.
WEXFORD COUNTY Circuit Court
Judge William Peterson, who is hearing
the case, denied a defense motion asking
the release of those tapes.
Prosecutor John Wilson admitted the
tapes exist but said they contain only "ir-
relevant and immaterial" information.
"It is only fair for Dr. Davis to explain
whether he means to say that the prose-
cution has deliberately attempted to mis-
lead im," he said.
