Vance, Sadat discuss PLO

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt tP) -
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
began a new Middle East mis-
sion last night, exploring with
President Anwar Sadat indirect
ways of representing the Pales-
tinians in Arab-Israeli negotia-
tions.
Vance said on arriving in
Egypt, the first stop of a 12-
day six-nation Middle East tour,
that he planned to "see what
we can do to speed this pro-
cess" toward a "just and last-
ing peace."
VANCE, WHO left Washing-

ton Sunday night, went to
Egyptian President Anwar Sa-
dat's summer home on the
Mediterranean to begin talks.
"We have been waiting for
you for a long time," Sadat
joked as he greeted Vance in
the garden of the resort villa.
"I'm more than optimistic"
over the outcome of the talks,
Sadat told reporters. "I am ex-
pressing my deep gratitude to
the secretary for starting his
tour with Egypt."
VANCE WILL also visit Leb-
anon, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Ara-
bia and Israel as he tries to ar-
range peace talks. He said he
assumed all leaders in the area
were prepared to enter nego-
tiations without preconditions.
The question of Palestinian
representation "is one of the
hard nuts that have to be
cracked," a senior American
official told reporters.
One approach said to be un-
der consideration is having the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-

tion (PLO) name West Bank
Palestinians as part of a Jor-
danian delegation at a recon-
vened Geneva peace confer-
ence.
ANOTHER WOULD involve
the PLO attending the Geneva
talks as an observer, much as
it attends United Nations ses-
sions.
Israel has ,refused to nego-
tiate with the PLO, which is
committed to the destruction of
the Jewish state. But U. S. of-
ficials stress Prime Minister
Menahem Begin's expressed
willingness to permit Palestin-
ians to join the Jordanian dele-
gation provided they are not
PLO members.
Other issues facing Vance
and Sadat during their talks to-
day are the questions of de-
fensible borders for Israel, the
return of Arab territory occu-
pied by Israel ten years ago, a
homeland for the Palestinians,
and the definition of peace.
THESE subjects were ex-

plored in visits to Washington
by Sadat and the leaders of
Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Is-
rael. In addition, President Car-
ter met with President Hafez
Assad of Syria in Geneva.
With this seven month per-
iod of preparation over, Egyp-
tian officials are now waiting to
see whether Carter is willing
and able to put pressure on Is-
rael to compromise.
Vance told a news conference
before starting his trip "I think
it is possible that at the end

of this trip we will not know'
whether peace talks can be
held.
Unlike his fict finding tour of
the Mideast in February,
Vance said he is bringing U. S.
proposals dealing with both sub-
stance and procedure. He and
Carter said the basic problem
was that of the Palestinians.
The world is divided into 24
equal time zones, established by
an international commission in
1884.

New casino gambling bill
introduced for Detroit

LANSING (UPI) - Rep.
Casmer Ogonowski yesterday
outlined a new casino gambling
proposal for Detroit that would
divide a ten per cent tax on

people who can:

gambling revenues between
that city's schools and police
and fire departments.
The Detroit Democrat said he
would introduce the measure
this fall.
OGONOWSKI FOR years has
been a booster of legalized ca-
sino gambling in Detroit, but
the effort suffered a setback
last year when city residents
rejected the idea on an ad-
vistory vote.
