U.S., Soviets agree to arms talks

UNITED NATIONS (UPI) - Secretary of State
Alexander Haig and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko apparently reached agreement yesterday
on beginning a new set of arms talks on nuclear
missiles stationed in Europe.
But the 4-hour negotiating session produced deep
disagreements on other issues.
The meeing between the two officials represented
the highest contact yet between Moscow and
Washington since President Reagan took office.
U.S. AND SOVIET officials said afterwards that a
joint simultaneous statement will be issued today in.
Moscow and New York dealing with arms control,
and in particular the talks on long-range theater
nuclear forces (TNF) stationed in Europe.
The statement apparently will announce a date for
a new set of talks on limiting the missiles in Europe,

a major demand of America's NATO allies.
The meeting between Haig and Gromkyo, who were
alone for 2 hours and 50 minutes, was described by
Haig's spokesman, Dean Fischer as "frank and
businesslike" and covering a wide range of inter-
national issues.
"FRANK AND businesslike" is normally used as a
diplomatic code word for discussions that included
disagreements and which were not particularly
friendly in tone.
the agreement to make no statement immediately
after the meeting but to issue a joint statement later
is the routine generally followed in a situation where
agreement on details has been reached and has to be
given final clearance by the governments involved.
Fischer said that the talks also dealt with a broad
range of topics dealing with U.S.-Soviet relations.

FISCHER ALSO said Gromyko agreed to meet
Haig again Monday in New York, a session that
already had been tentatively scheduled.
Gromyko waved to reporters after the meeting in
the U.S. mission to the United Nations, saying only,
"No statement today. Maybe a statement

cement about the Thursday statement through, his
It was the first high-level diplomatic contact bet-
ween the Soviet Union and the Reagan ad-
ministration and had been preceeded on Tuesday by
a harsh and strident speech by Gromyko in the United
Nations, where he accused the United States of a long
series of crimes, including reneging on the SALT II
treaty which was signed, but never ratified by thex
United States.

Controversial dig finds King David's city

JERUSALEM (AP)- Undeterred by
riots, legal battles and international
protests, archaeologists excavating the
Jerusalem of King David have revealed
a city of great wealth alongside great
Workers found erotic figurines from
the early Israelite period showing that
idolatry was common even after David
brought monotheism to the hilltop city
he made his capital.
Jerusalem has been inhabited for 5,000
years. The latest 12-week season un-
covered a wall showing the contours of
the city in the 18th century B.C., when
the Bible says Abraham was sum-
moned to the Promised Land from Ur,
in present-day Iraq.
The dig has added little to the
knowledge of ancient Jerusalem,
already well-documented in texts. But
it "is bringing Jerusalem to life," ex-
cavation director Yigal Shiloh said
during a tour of the site yesterday,
when digging ended for another year.
The dig is south of the hilltop where
Solomon built the great Jewish temple.
A few hundred yards away, some of the
great events in Jesus's life took place.

Shiloh's crew is digging in a medieval
Jewish cemetery, and they rioted
several times over the summer in
defense of the dead. The controversy
led the government to halt the dig but it
was overruled by the Supreme Court
and the excavations continued.
The supreme Rabbinical Council
decided yesterday to press Parliament
to enact a coalition agreement that
would give the council power to halt ar-
chaeological excavations.
On Tuesday, the executive council of
the U.N. Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization condemned digs
such as Shiloh's as "a grave danger" to
BUT SHILOH said he would conduct
the fifth and final season next summer
"in the regular way."
"We are trying to draw an ar-
chaeological picture of the life and
culture of Jerusalem from its capture
to its destruction in 586 B.C. by the
Babylonians," said Donald T. Ariel, one
of Shiloh's assistants.
Jerusalem was a Canaanite city of
3,000 people covering a 20-acre hillside
when David conquered it in 996 B.C. and
built his palace on the hill.
DAVID AND.Solomon expanded the

city with public buildings, constructing
an acropolis resembling the downtown
of a modern city.
Close to the palace area, ar-
chaeologists discovered roomy, well-
constructed homes with nearby toilets.
Houses lower down the slope were
smaller, their stones slapped together
with mud. "These were the slums of
Jerusalem," said Shiloh.
Among the pottery finds was a shard
inscribed in characters used in
southern Arabia, documenting an early
link with the land of the Queen of Sheba.
DAVID'S CITY today is a sparsely
populated hill in the shadow of the 400-
year-old Turkish walls of the Old City in
the Arab sector which Israel captured
from Jordan in 1967. About four acres in
six sections were made available for

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Workers were inspec-
ting up to 200 loosened thermal tiles on the space shuttle
Columbia yesterday assessing damage from a propellant
spill to determine how long the spacecraft's second mission
must be delayed..
More than 200 of the spacecraft's 31,000 heat-resistant tiles
were affected by Tuesday's spill, officials of the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration said.
THE SPILL HAS delayed the shuttles's second mission at
least a week and possibly two beyond the scheduled Oct. 9
date, NASA officials have said. But if damage is found inside
the craft and the shuttle has to be removed from the launch-
pad, postponement could be "in excess of a month," said
shuttle operations director George Page.
The adhesive that holds the' silica-and-fiber tiles to the
spacecraft's aluminum skin was destroyed by the propellant,
the caustic oxidizer nitrogen tetroxide. Page said the tiles
themselves, which measure about 6 inches square, were not

the spill took place at a servicing panel during a fueling
operation of the reactor-control system, a group of thrusters
which control the spacecraft's pitch and roll during orbit and
THE TILES PROTECT the shuttle against the high tem-
peratures of re-entry into the atmosphere. They are in-
dividually sized, fitted and bonded onto 75 percent of the or-
biter's external surface.
Theaccident was caused by a faulty valve or a seal on the
ground fueling system leading to the servicing panel, said
Mark Hess, a spokesman for the space center.
Hess said engineers would try to do all necessary repairs at
the launch pad. Page had indicated Tuesday that if damage
was found within the spacecraft, the whole shuttle system
would have to be removed from the pad and disassembled.
Repair work on the orbiter would then be carried out at its
hangar, Page said.
