Carter narrows Veep Lebanese fighting continues as

contest to
WASHINGTON (/t' - One of
Jimmy Carter's closest politi-
cal advisers is beginning to.
narrow the list of possible vice-
presidential running mates in a
series of informal Capitol con-
versations.
One senator who is familiar
with the sifting process said he
believes the leading prospects
are now Democratic Sens.
Frank Church of Idaho, John
Glenn of Ohio, and Walter Mon-
dale of Minnesota to run with
Carter, the apparent Democra-
tic presidential nominee.
"THE FINAL choice will al-
most certainly be a member of
the Senate," he said.
The preliminary evaluation of
the possible candidates is being
conducted by Charles Kirbo,
an Atlanta attorney who has
been associated with the for-
mer Georgia govetrnor for sev-
eral years.
In addition ta' Church, Glenn
and Mondale, Kirbo is talking
with Democratic Sens. Henry
Jackson, of Washington, Ed-

3 senators
mand Moskie of Maine, and Ad-
lai Stevenson of Illinois.
THOSE senators are said to
be possible but somewhat less
likely choices.
When he was in Washington
on Wednesday, Carter said he
will narrow his choice to two or
three names by this weekend
and then interview the finalists
sometime next week.
One senator, who has been
consulted by Kirbo but it not
himself a contender for the job,
said it is important to remem-
ber that Carter does not know
any of the candidates person-
ally.
"HE'S fortunate to have this
extra time to appraise them
and size them up," the senator
said.
The senator, who asked that
his name not be used, said he
believes everything points to
the eventual selection going to
a member of the Senate.

new appeal for truce

BEIRUT, Lebanon (A-Leba-
non's three-way war raged on
heedless of an Arab League
truce appeal and arrival of ad-
ditional peace - keeping troops
yesterday from Saudi Arabia
and Sudan.
Right-wing Christian forces
pounded the beleaguered Pales-
tinian refugee camp of Tal Zaa-
tar in what Palestinians called
the heaviest shelling of a 10-day
assault.
"DOZENS of people are being
killed," said Farouk Kaddoumi,
chief of the Palestine Libetation
Organization's political depart-
ment.
"Most of the homes in Tal
Zaatar are burning."
Kaddoumi told a news confer-
ence a concerted five-front as-
sault was pushed back in fierce
fighting before noon, only to re-
sume in the late afternoon and
continue into the evening.
"The seige of the camp is
tightening," said a communique
from the joint central command
of Palestinian guerrillas and
their leftist Lebanese allies.
"Large numbers of tanks climb-
ed onto overlooking hills and
shelled us to avenge earlier
losses."
KADDOUMI vowed the camp
in southeastern Beirut would
hold out indefinitely.
Moslem and Palestinian gun-
ners launched a number of
heavy Katyusha rockets from
Beirut's southern outskirts, aim-
ed at Christian artillery posi-
tions firing at the Tal Zaatar
defenders.

number of fires. The boom of
incoming shells jarred the build-

p.m. deadline passed for a
cease-fire arranged by Arab
League foreign ministers meet-
ing in Cairo. Neither side gave
any indication it was willing to
hold its fire until the battle over
Tal Zaatar ended one way or
the other
"We want a cease-fire agree-
ment but not a ridiculous one,"
said Pierre Gemayel, head of
the right-wing Phalange party
that fields the largest Christian
militia. "Fifty failed cease-
fires are enough for us."

Baker ends
bike bid
for Senate
(Contnued from Page 3)
REGARDED as the most con-
servative of the Regents, Baker
recently received the endorse-
ment of Regent David Larm, Re-
publican Party chairman for
the Flint area. Several Michigan
congressmen recently endorsed
Esch, but Baker scoffed at the
support.
"It (the group's endorsement)
clearly shows the buddy system
at work," Baker said. "'You
scratch my back, I'll scratch
yours.' I don't think it's any big
deal."
Baker will do conventional
campaigning at party functions
from now until the primary.

is ignored
About 1500 Saudi Arabian and
Sudanese peace-keeping troops
wearing w h i t e helmets and
camouflage uniforms drove into
southern Beirut and camped at
the idle airport. About 800 Sy-
rian and Libyan peacekeepers
already are there, but they have
done nothing to halt the Ti
Zaatar battle.
Kaddoumi said there was no
agreement for their immediate
deployment in battle zones. The
Saudi and Sudanese govern
ments h a v e specified their
troops were dispatched only io
police a cease-fire once it is in
effect.

but the corresponding mass
doses of sadism and strident
macho ethos seems for more
repulsive and infantile now
than in those innocent days of
the early '60's. Perhaps Viet-

forced us all to grow up a little.
and it's to our credit if the
value systems in From Russia
With Love seem uncomfort
aably out of kilter to toda'
