V.P.

LOS ANGELES /'} - Ronald Reagan
broke tradition yesterday and named a
running mate before he even has the
Republican presidential nomination. Rea-
gan chose U. S. Sen. Richard Schweiker
of Pennsylvania, a liberal, who had been
publicly a Ford delegate from a state
with a large and solidly Ford-though
legally uncommitted-delegation.
The former California governor told a
Los Angeles news conference that he had
chosen Schweiker because he has "basic
beliefs compatible with my own."
THE CONSERVATIVE challenger to
President Ford for the nomination did
not mention Pennsylvania's 103 dele-
gates in his statement, but if a major-
ity of the delegates should line up with
Reagan it could carry him ahead of the
President in the race for the nomination.
Rogers Morton, President Ford's
campaign manager, said in Washington:
"I am very surprised at Gov. Rea-
gan's announcement of his choice for
vice president. He has apparently made
his choice without consulting either con-
vention delegates or party leaders.
"It appears to be an effort to exchange
the second highest office in the land for
a handful of delegates."
JOHN SEARS, Reagan's campaign
manager, told a Washington news con-
ference that "a great number of Ford
delegates will now demand that he tell
them who he is going to run with."
Several politicians - including Rea-
gan and Ford supporters - said the
choice of the liberal senator from Penn-
sylvania could hurt Reagan's chances,
particularly in the South where much of
his support is.
Sears said he wasn't worried about
Reagan losing southern support if Ford
picked John Connally. He reiterated the
oft-stated Reagan declaration that Rea-
gan will not run with Ford as vice presi-
dential nominee.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS poll of
committed or declared delegates showed
neither of the presidential candidates
with enough to win the nomination. Yes-
terday morning, just 69 delegates-out
of the 2,259 to attend the convention-

WASHINGTON (11) - The Senate voted
yesterday to cut off millions of dollars
worth of tax benefits to U. S. firms that
bribe foreign officials or participate in
the Arab boycott of Israel.
The provision, written by the Senate
Finance Committee, was approved with-
out debate. It was not even mentioned
as the Senate, on an 86-1 vote, accepted
a package of amendments, including the
antibribery and antiboycott language, to
an omnibus tax bill.
CONGRESSIONAL EXPERTS esti-
mate the provision, if it becomes law,
could cost offending businesses $100 mil-
lion in 1977.
The provision still has to be consider-
ed by the House.
It grew out of disclosures that some
of the nation's largest corporations
bribed foreign officials in order to do
business overseas, while others have
yielded to the Arab boycott against Is-
rael and Jewish businessmen around the
world.
The antiboycott provisions would apply
to any similar action against any com-
pany on the basis of religion or nation-
ality.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (A') - The United
States prepared yesterday to launch an-
other evacuation by sea of about 500
Americans and other foreigners from
war-ravaged Lebanon.
There also were reports that attack-
ing Christian militiamen would permit
the removal of more than 1,000 wounded
Palestinians from the besieged refugee
camp at Tal Zaatar on the outskirts of
Beirut.
U.S. 6TH FLEET landing craft lined
up to pluck the departing foreigners
from Beirut's waterfront before dawn
today and ferry them to Navy ships
waiting to transport them to Greece.
Security at dockside was to be fur-
nished by the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization (PLO), which also aided in
a U.S. evacuation by sea on June 20.
Earlier, U.S. Embassy plans for an

overland convoy to Syria were aban-
doned after the PLO warned of potential
security dangers along the road.
The White House said President Ford
in Washington would monitor the opera-
tion in case developments should require
a presidential decision.
A BREAKDOWN by nationality of the
approximately 500 signed up for the
evacuation was not given, Earlier, the
embassy had listed 154 Americans and
281 others.
Hassan Sabri Kholi, an Arab league
negotiator, reported Lebanese President
Suleiman Franjieh, a Christian, had
guaranteed in cease-fire talks with the
removal of wounded persons in the Tal
Zaatar refugee camp could be carried
out and had messaged this pledge to the
Red Cross,
Kholi indicated the evacuation of

wounded could begin within 24 hours but
Jean Hoefliger, leader of the Interna-
tional Red Cross delegation, said, "We
will see.'
HOEFLIGER HAD said after leading
a reconnaissance mission into the camp
last week that the wounded could be
brought out only with ironclad assur-
ances from both Christians and Moslems
to respect a shaky truce.
Radio reports from the Christian side
told of new clashes between Christians
and the alliance of Moslem leftists and
Palestinians.
Information compiled from hospitals
and police sources showed that 162 per-
sons had been killed and more than 230
wounded on all fronts within 24 hours
since Sunday.
THE 53RD CEASE-FIRE of the bloody
16-month war was to take effect Sunday
