the war, which threatened to involve
more nations the longer it lasts. The
United States offered early-warning in-
formation to Persian Gulf nations that
feel threatened. The Soviet-Syrian
treaty was seen as an effort by both
countries to shore up their influence in
the Middle East.
Israel said it "cannot remain
passive" in the face of growing Jor-
danian involvement in the war and
Saudi Arabia was said to be increasing
security measures at oil installations in
case the war spreads.

Jordanian officials in Amman said
King Hussein of Jordan and President
Abdullah Saleh of North Yemen talked
by telephone and affirmed their "Pan-
Arab support of the Iraqi people in their
efforts to regain their rights over their
territories and the waters."
The reference to "Pan-Arab support"
was to point up that Iraq, Jordan and
North Yemen are Arab* nations while
Iran is a non-Arab, Persian country.
KING HUSSEIN has been the only
Arab leader to openly back Iraq and the
Jordanian announcement of North
Yemen's support was seen as an effort
to enlist other Arab nations in an effort
to help Iraq. '

Congressman will run
despite solicitation charges
EASTON, Md.-Rep. Robert Bauman (R-Md.) intends to stay in his
re-election race despite publicity surrounding his sexual solicitation charges
and his statement that he is an akpholic, his supporters said yesterday.
Bauman summoned reporters to a late afternoon meeting to make a
statement in his first public appearance since the story of his arrest broke
He pleaded innocent Friday to a charge of soliciting sex from a 16-year-
old boy, and agreed to participate in a six-month rehabilitation program.
Prosecutors will drop the charges if he completes the program.
Labor groups file suit
against consumer fraud
WASHINGTON-The Energy Department has perpetrated a "mon-
strous consumer fraud" in the way it has handled $10 billion in oil over
charge cases, a coalition of 17 consumer and labor organizations said
The groups filed suit in federal court seeking to overturn all over-
charge settlements negotiated by the department so far because they fall far
short of returning to consumers the amount of money they allegedly were
overcharged for gasoline, home heating oil, and other petroleum products.
"The average family of four has been ripped off to the tune of $200. Yet if
DOE has its way, they may get as little as $2 back," said William Win-
psinger, president of the International Association of Machinists, a group in-
volved in the suit.
The consumer andiTabor groups estimated consumers will only see $100
million of settlements reached so fa, although legally every dollar should be
going to them.
Senate approves bill
to benefit state banks
LANSING-The Senate gave unanimous approval yesterday tQ industry-
backed legislation allowing state savings and loan institutions to offer ser-
vices previously restricted to their federally chartered competitors and
The bill, passed 32-0 and returned to the House, is a general
recodification of the laws relating to the state savings and loan industry.
~ The massive measure authorizes savings and loans to offer increasingly
popular interest bearing checking accounts to their customers.
They also would, for the first time, be authorized to provide bank credit
cards like banks and national chartered savings institutions.
LA smog still a problem
LOS ANGELES-An eye-watering, throat-scratching blanket of smog
was trapped over Los Angeles yesterday for the ninth straight day,
triggering a rash of complaints and headlines, but altering the lifestyles and
habits of few.
Throughout the siege of bad air, the criss-crossing freeways have been
routinely packed with automobiles, many carrying just one person in air-
Experts say the combination ozone, oxides, and sulphates trapped over
the area, and cooked to an unhealthy stew by the unseasonably warm tem-
peratures, is particularly bad for the very old, the very young and those suf-
fering from respiratory ailments.
Carter signs housing bill
for condominium owners
WASHINGTON-President Carter yesterday signed a bill authorizing
$31.2 billion for government housing programs and allowing condominium
owners for the first time to sue in federal court for relief from unfair leases.
Carter said the provision on condominiums will "alleviate an uncon-
scionable burden on some condominium owners, particularly in Miami and
Condominium owners will finally have a chance to seek judicial relief
for unfair leases signed by them when they thought they were purchasing a
good bargain in a home, Carter said.
Woman author candidate
for Nobel literary prize
STOCKHOLM, Sweden-The Swedish Academy of Letters will announce
the 1980 Nobel Prize in literature today and literary sources here said
women authors are top contenders for the award.
The sources mentioned U.S. author Joyce Carol Oates, 42, as one leading
candidate. Alfred Lundquist, chairman of the Academy's literature commit-
tee, last month praised Oates' latest major novel, Bellefleur as "an
inexorable settlement of the American myth of success."
The Nobel Prize in literature has not been awarded to a woman since
196', when Nelly Sachs, a poet of dual German and Swedish nationality,
shared the award with Israeli poet S.Y. Agnon.
Only a half-dozen women laureates have been named since the Nobel
prizes were established from the will of the late Swedish industrialist Alfred
Nobel in 1901.
