Syrians bring partial quiet to Lebanon
tContinued from Page 3)
In Jerusalem, Foreign Minis-
ter Yigal Allon said Israel was
monitoring developments f o r
their 'long- and short-term im-
plications." He said Israel would
take action if its defenses were
threatened, but sources said
there appeared to be no imme-
diate danger to Israel.
"I would not like to interfere
with anyone who is putting down

Rabin toldrstudents in Haifa. He
said reports from Lebanon in-
dicated that Syrian troops near
Tripoli have killed more guer-
rillas recently than Israel has in
the last 2/ years.

Ford administration plans antibusing bill
(Continued from Page 1)
Ford made his remarks before
calling a meeting with Atty.
Gen. Edward Levi, Secretary of
Health, Education and Welfare
David Mathews, Labor Secre-
tary W. J. Usery and members
of the White House staff to dis-
cuss the legislation.
The White House conference
lasted an hour and a half and
was attended by virtually all of
the President's key aides as
well as representatives of the
O f f i c e of Management and
"THERE WERE no decisions
made at this meeting," Press
Secretary Ron Nessen said af-
Asked when Ford might act,
Nessen replied, "I can't give
you a timetable." However, he
said Ford wants to move "as
soon as possible."
Nessen acknowledged Levi not
only presented draft legislation
but also suggested text for a
special message to Congress
outlining the proposal.
NESSEN TOLD one reporter
that whateer aFord does will
be "totally unrelated to what-
ever political considerations you
might have in mind."
The White House spokesman
said Levi first presented the
draft legislation, which was dis-
cussed by the conferees before
Mathews outlined his suggested
approaches to help local school
districts "avoid reaching the
point at which the court steps
in and orders massive busing."
Nessen told reporters earlier
yesterday that Ford would lis-

Atty. Gen. Levi has rejected
the idea of intervening before
the Supreme Court in the Bos-
ton school - busing case. The
President has been urging Levi
to have the Justice Department
back busing foes in a case be-
fore the court.
Levi had been pressured by
civil rights groups to stay out of
the b u s i n g controversy. But
when he announced Saturday
that the department would not
file a friend-of-the-court brief
opposing busing with the Su-
preme Court, he left open the
possibility that the department
might step in later.
The legislation the President
wants drafted is not a con-
stitutional amendment, although
some legal authorities say an
amendment is the only remain-
ing tool that could limit busing.
"THE LEGISLATION seeks a
clarification of the various de-
cisions that have been made by
the Supreme Court on the extent
of the remedy that local courts
can utilize when they find a vio-
lation of constitutional rights,"
the President said.
