Iraq ready to negotiate as
Persian Gulf war continues
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Fighting intensified around Abadan yesterday and
Iran claimed it stymied an Iraqi assault on its besieged refinery city and
Official reports from both nations listed skirmishes and engagements all
along the 300-mile war front that divides Persian Iran and Arab Iraq, but
none of the reports could be independently confirmed.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Saadoun Hammadi was quoted by a Kuwaiti
newspaper as saying Iraq had "recovered its territories and waters in the
Shatt al-Arab"-the disputed estuary that provides Iraq with its only outlet
to the Persian Gulf-and was ready to negotiate.
"We are now ready to negotiate, but will never make any territorial or
offshore concession," Hammadi said, according to the newspaper Al Qabas.
His statement indicated Iraq wants to keep the entire 60-mile Iranian
coastline on the Shatt al-Arab, which it has overrun since the war began Sep-
Civiletti may have lied to
reporters in Billy affair
WASHINGTON-Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti may have inten-
tionally deceived reporters when he said he had not talked to President Car-
ter about the Billy Carter-Libya case, according to a Justice Department
report released yesterday.
"We are forced to conclude that the attorney general's answer was not
the truth and that he knew he was dissembling as he was answering," said
the report made public by a special Senate subcommittee investigating the
Billy Carter affair.
The report was submitted to the Senate panel to bring it up to date on the
department's internal investigation, aimed at determining whether the ad
ministration acted properly in the affair.

Members of the Poletown Neighborhood Councils, whose suit to stop the
project failed to draw a temporary injunction against the land aquistion,
wore black arm bands to the council meeting. "I hope they can sleep
nights," said Ann Giammini, a resident of the project area. "We haven't
been able to sleep. May God have pity on these people, all of them."
"We have to saye an economic situation in this city," said council

Greyhound drivers picket
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.-Greyhound bus drivers set up some scattered
picket lines around the country yesterday, most of them in the east, despite a
union extension of a strike deadline until midnight tonight.
An Amalgamated Transit Union official at Local 1043 in Cleveland said
members in the union's eastern region established pickets after the old con-
tract expired at midnight Friday.
He said picket lines were set up in Cincinnati, Akron, and "too many
other cities to list."
In Phoenix, a spokesman for Greyhound Lines Inc, said he had no repor-
ts that bus service had been affected.
Union leaders and Greyhound continued meeting under the guidance of
a federal mediator.
The union had set a strike for midnight Friday, but agreed to extend it 48
Paris conferees discuss sex
problems of handicapped
PARIS-Sexual problems faced by handicapped people was the focus
of a conference held recently in Paris.
In one conference hall, some 200 doctors, psychologists, sociologists, and
therapists from 14 countries spoke on such topics as sex education through
touch for the blind and the difficulty of teaching contraception to the deaf.
But most of the speakers dwelled on paraplegics, whose paralyzed lower
bodies are completely without feeling.
Doctors said victims never can xperience orgasm. Few males can have
intercourse and fewer can father children.
"The patient must understand there are many ways to be sexual . .
such as kissing, caressing, and petting," said Dr. B.J. Hachen of Swit-
Bachen said there are 22 to 25 new cases of paraplegia per million world
inhabitants every year.
