Vance vows end
to Mid-east strife

By BARRY SCHWEID
AMMAN, Jordan (P) - Secre-
tary of State Cyrus Vance met
Jordan's King Hussein yester-
day after vowing to find a "ne-
cessary consensus" for an Arab-
Israeli settlement. Prdsident
Carter said in Washington he
thought Geneva peace talks
could still be held this year.
The optimism from Carter
and Vance came despite Syria's
rejection Thursday of a U.S.-
backed proposal for a prelimi-
nary cosnference of foreign min-
isters in the United States be-
fore the Geneva talks.
A MEETING of Israeli and
Arab foreign ministers would be
an apparent attempt to over-
come Israeli objection to Pales-
tinian participation at Geneva.
Asked if peace talks were still
a probability, Carter told re-
porters at the White House, "I
think so." Asked if he thought
Palestinians would be represen-
ted, he said "I'll wait until la-
ter" to make a judgment.

Maybe this group of Ottawa youngsters knows something we don't, like that the University
may begin offering Mud Bowl athletic scholarships. But whether they're sure of their ath-
letic future or not, they're practicing.

Wanted!
veonle who can:

Carter said Vance would con-
tinue on his scheduled six-nation,
12-day Middle East tour but that
after meeting with the Israelis,
Vance may return to the Arab
nations.
"IT IS such a fluid thing and
there are so many conflicting
opinions . . that to emphasize
so many negative aspects dis-
torts the progress being
made," Carter said.
Vance arrived in Jordan from
Syria and said, "We shall con-
tinue to work with other coun-
tries in the Middle East seeking
to build the necessary consensus
which will enable us to go to
Geneva to negotiate a settle-
ment."
Vance said the search for a
"just and lasting peace remains
at the tap of the list in terms of
our foreign policy priorities in
the United States."
Thousands of Palestinians live
on the West Bank of the Jordan
River, land that Israel captured
from. Jordanian control in 1967.
But Hussein's influence on the
Palestinian issue was reduced in
1974 when an Arab summit in
Rabat, Morocc, gave the Pales-
tinian Liberation Organization
sole authority to repsent the
Palestinians.
Assad has endorsed Palestin-
ian participation at the Geneva
talks, and the exclusion of Pal-
estinians apparently prompted
Syria's rejection of the proposed
foreign ministers meeting.
