20 die in
lexplosion
at PLO
1stronghold

From AP and UPI
BEIRUT - Two powerful car bombs,
one in south Lebanon and the other in
the north, destroyed a Palestinian
guerrilla office and a cement factory
owned by a former president Thursday,
killing between 35 and 50 people and in-
juring 110 more.
The "Front for the Liberation of
Lebanon from Aliens" was responsible
for both explosions, according to a
telephone caller who claimed to speak
for the group.

HOWEVER, THE . Palestine
Liberation Organization accused Israel
of planting the bomb that destroyed an
office run jointly by the PLO and
Lebanese leftist militias in the southern
port of Sidon.
Little is known about the front, which
has claimed responsibility for attacks
on the PLO, leftist targets in the mostly
Moslem sector of Beirut, and for the at-
tempt to assassinate then-U.S. Am-
bassador John Gunther Dean in August
1980.

The Front has surfaced several times
over the past year, claiming respon-
sibility for political assassinations and
attacks on the American, Iranian and
Iraqi embassies.
THE ONLY apparent connection
between the targets was the fact that
they were foreign or Lebanese aligned
in some way with foreign interests in
Lebanon.
Attributing terrorist attacks to fic-
ticious groups is also a tactic long em-
ployed by established militias on both
sides of Lebanon's sectarian conflict.

WSp ringboks
CHICAGO (AP)- Picketed by civil
rights groups, denounced by the City
Council, and even canceled by a resort
hotel, a South African rugby team,
called the Springboks did its best
yesterday to remain as elusive as the
timid antelope for which it is named.
By midmorning, the mayor of
Albany, N.Y., had canceled an ap-
pearance by the team there next week
for fear of violent demonstrations by
opponents of racial apartheid. And the
Soviet Olympic Committee charged the
U.S. government violated the Olympic

elude demonstrators

charter by inviting the South Africans
to compete in the United States.
NUMEROUS rumors circulated
about the team's whereabouts and the
location of its secret match, supposedly
set for tomorrow, with Midwestern
ruggers.
The 36 members of the rugby
team-two of them black-were sup-
posed to leave yesterday from the
Chicago Athletic Association's down-
town headquarters, where they had
been staying since their arrival Mon-
day.

By midafternoon, however, the
general manager of the athletic club,
who asked that his name not be used,
said the team was still there, but that
"the situation is changing hour to
hour."
THE APPEARANCE of the team has
prompted a spate of modest demon-
strations- although nothing like the
violence that was touched off by the
team's appearance in New Zealand last
Saturday.

Milliken 's economic plan
swell received in Lansing

LANSING (UPI)- Gov. William
Milliken's proposal for a $1.2 billion
property tax cut and a $25 million high
technology investment fund, targeted
to robotics and molecular biology, won
general approval from lawmakers
yesterday.
Other portions of his economic
*ecovery plan face a tougher fight.
THE FOLLOWING are some
highlights of Milliken's economic
recovery plan.
Property levies for homeowners
and farmers will be cut 10 percent this
year, 15 percent in 1982, and 20 percent
in 1983. The average homeowner
ultimately will see a $240 per year
reduction, officials say.
* Local governments and school
districts will be reimbursed by the state
for 65 percent of the revenue they lose,
but they must absorb the rest.'
" Apartment dwellers will be allowed

to count 20 percent of their rent
payments as property tax.
" Senior citizens, low income
families, and the handicapped will be
relieved of all liability if their
household annual incomes total less
than $5,000.
" Small business exemptions will be
raised to $60,000.
* A $100 million economic fund, sup-
ported through revenue bonds, will be
created to target loans to research and
development facilities, industrial
projects, and other business ventures.
" A high technology resource center
will be created in the State Commerce
Department.
" "Incubation centers" will be
developed at various state universities.
" The state will launch a "high
caliber, extensive and long-term"
promotional. program somewhat like
the well known "I Love New York"
campaign.
