Peacekeepers enter Beirut

BEIRUT, Lebanon 0") - Fifty truck-
loads of Syrian and Libyan soldiers roll-
ed into Beirut airport yesterday from
Syria to form the vanguard of a pan-
Arab peacekeeping force being organ-
ized to halt the Lebanese war.
Mahmoud, Riad, secretary -general of
the Arab League, named an Egyptian,
Maj. Gen. Mohamed Hasan Ghoneim, as
commander of the joint force the league
is setting up to replace Syrian interven-
tion troops in Lebanon. The general
heads the Arab league permanent mili-
tary committee.
RIAD ANNOUNCED the appointment
on his arrival in Cairo for an Arab
League meeting. In Dasmascus, where
he had been setting up the joint force,
Riad said the only task now of the newly
arrived troops in Beirut is to reopen the
airport so Saudi Arabian and Sudanese

Syrian intervention troops would be with-

terms of the agreement covering arrival
of the new joint force.
"This will allow the Arab peacekeep-
ing force . . . composed of two units-one
Syrian and one Libyan-to take posi'ions

The new cease-fire attempt leaves un-

civil war: the conflict between right-

recently named foreign minister, re-
iterated Christian opposition to seeing

and its northern suburbs.

Unity Second Vice-Presidential candi-

DALE SAID the union leadership had
to present a "positive and united front
against the de-certification drive."
As to whether the split union leader-
ship could unite after the tumultous
election campaign, Dale said, "I can
only speak for members of my caucus;
we are willing to co-operate."
Dale also had some comment concern-

Broderick espouses 'law and
order' in close sheriff race

In what may prove to be an ex-
tremely close race for the Democratic
nomination for Washtenaw County
Sheriff, incunibent Frederick Postill
faces a strong challenge from a for-
mer member of his own department,
Charles Broderick. A 39-year old vet-
eran of the force, Charles "Chuck"
Broderick is seeking the office on the
basis of his police background and
desire to bring back "plain law and
"I have more police experience
than all the (Democratic) candidates
including the incumbent," said Bro-
HIS OTHER experience includes
extensive training courses as well as
serving under three county sheriffs
until his release from the department
(along with seven others) shortly af-
ter Postill took office in 1974.
"I was never told why I was re-
leased," he said, "I just received a
registered letter in the mail and that
was it."
BRODERICK intends to turn the
efforts of the sheriff's department to
basic crime prevention rather than
rehabilitation, a job he says belongs

in state and federal programs in-
"I want to make the streets of this
county safe and we can only do this
by putting men on the streets," said
One problem he expresses concern
about is the 'contracting' of police
protection for the outlying areas of
Washtenaw County. This system con-
