COALITION SURVIVES ON 57-54 VOTE

Begin
From AP and UPI
JERUSALEM-Prime Minister
Menachem Begin rallied his dwindling
political forces yesterday and defeated
a motion of no confidence in his gover-
nment's economic policy. But former
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman dealt a
sharp blow to Begin by voting to bring
down the government.
Begin's coalition survived on a 57-54
vote with two abstentions-the slim-
mest margin in a no-confidence bid sin-
ce he became Israel's prime minister in
1977. The absainers were Samuel Flat-

lefeats 1n
to-Sharon, an independent, and Akiva
Nof of the Democratic Movement For
Change.
BEGIN CUT SHORTa U.S. visit to
cast his vote against a motion offered
by the opposition Labor Party to protest
an annual inflation rate of more than
130 percent and a consumer price in-
crease of 11 percent in October.
Government policy also was under
attack from Israeli liberals over the
shooting and wounding of 11 Palestinian
student demonstrators Tuesday during
clashes with the army in the occupied

io-confidence bid

IN BRIEF

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports

;

West Bank of the Jordan River.
Arab high school students boycotted
classes in the occupied West Bank and
stoned cars in north Jerusalem to
protest the shootings.
IN WASHINGTON, the State Depar-
tment warned the Israeli policy of
firing live ammunition, at unarmed
demonstrators could have "grave and
far-reaching consequences."
"We deeply regret the bloodshed that
has occurred and we are also troubled
by what appears to be the policy of the
Israeli armed forces to fire live am-
munition at the legs of the demon-
strators," said department spokesman
John Trattner.
Three opposition members of
parliament, Yossi Sarid, Chaika
Grossman and Mordechai Wirshubsky,
demanded an official inquiry, saying

the army was too quick to open fire on
the demonstrators.
CHIEF OF STAFF Lt. Gen. Raphael
Eytan said his men exercised
maximum restraint, but "when demon-
strators overstep a certain boundary
they must understand that the army
won't tolerate it."
In a striking display of irony, Defense
Minister Weizman voted for the down-
fall of the government whose May 1977,
election victory he masterminded.
Weizman resigned as defense minister
last May, complaining Begin was not
moving fast enough toward Mideast
peace and that economic policies were
not correct.
In an impassioned speech to
parliament, Weizman explained his
vote by saying that "in an emergency
you do unusual things."

Iran-Iraq peace seeking
mission scheduled for today
BAGHDAD, Iraq-Iran'sPresident Abolhassan Bani-Sadr said yesterday
his people were determined to achieve a "decisive victory" in the war
against Iraq while Iraq vowed to "cut off the hand" that attacks Kuwait or-
any other Arab country. Iran claimed to be pushing Iraqi forces back from'
two Iranian cities.
On the diplomatic front, former Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, on a
peace seeking mission in Tehran for the United Nations, will meet today with
Bani-Sadr and Prime Minister Mohammad Ali Rajai, a U.N. spokesperson in;
New York said. The spokesperson said Palme conferred yesterday with
Cuban Ambassador Alberto Valasquez, whose country is spearheading non-
aligned peace efforts. Palme is to travel to Baghdad later this week.
Pope ends five-day tour
MUNICH, West Germany-John Paul II ended a five-day tour of West
Germany yesterday, expressing hope that his visit helped heal the 450-year
rift between Protestants and Catholics as well as ease the bitterness aroused
by Nazi suppression of his Polish homeland in World War II.
The pope-the first to visit the land of the reformation in 198 years-made
his remarks in an address to his host, President Karl Carstens, before
leaving Munich airport in his special plane for Rome at the close of the
eighth major trip of his two-year papacy.
Korean jet crash kills 13
SEOUL, Korea-Korean airline officials put the death toll at 13 in yester-
day's fiery crash landing in heavy fog of a jumbo jet carrying 226 persons.
They reported one American among the fatalities and 15 people injured.
The Korean Air Lines 747 jumbo jet, on a flight from Los Angeles, brushed
an anti-aircraft gun emplacement as it was landing and a wing hit a military -
vehicle parked off the runway, according to Korean military sources. i
They said the pilot, one of those killed, had reported trouble with his con-
trols as the plane approached Seoul's Kimpo Airport, which halted all flight
operations following the crash.
"Yorkshire Ripper" kills
20-year-old student
LEEDS, England-The knife-wielding "Yorkshire Ripper," Britain's
most notorious modern murderer, has killed his 13th victim, a 20-year-old
student and Sunday school teacher, police said yesterday.
George Oldfield, assistant chief constable of West Midlands who has led
the manhunt for 'the Ripper since the first killing in October 1975, warned:
"No young woman is safe while he is at large.
Police said the body of the latest victim, Leeds University languages
student Jacqueline Hill, was found Tuesday in bushes only 100 yards from
her residence hall in the northern textile city.
Detectives declined to detail her injuries, as they have done with all the
Ripper's victims, for fear that copycat killings would hamper their search.
Catholic priest says he
will adopt black child
CHICAGO-Despite the disapproval of his church, a black Roman
Catholic priest says he will adopt a black child to dramatize a growing need
for their placement in adoptive or foster homes.
The Rev. George Clements, 48, who has 4,800 parishioners in his
predominantly black congregation at Holy Angels Church on the South Side,
said through a spokesman that he formally will announce his plans to
become an adoptive father at a public meeting in his church this evening.
Until then, Clements, well-known as a' civil rights activist, was in
seclusion, deep in meditation and prayer and unavailable for comment,
spokesman GeorgeO'Hara said yesterday.
Jury awards $4.5 million
in insurance fraud suit
POMONA, Calif.-Elmer Norman, a 72-year-old retired apartment
manager who is blind in one eye and nearly deaf, wept when a jury awarded
him $4.5 million in a landmark insurance fraud suit. But he said yesterday
he'll probably never see a penny of it.
"I've been waiting five to six years to get this suit heard in court," Nor-
man told a news conference. "I would not be surprised if ittook another five
years for the appeals. At my age, the chances are I will never see one cent."
Norman's attorney, William Shernoff, alleged in the civil suit that Colonial
Penn, which holds "out-of-hospital" health insurance policies on 2.5 million
members of the American Association of Retired Persons, fraudulently swit-
ched Norman's policy in 1974 to one that provided 40 percent less in benefits
while stating in a letter that the new policy offered "substantial im-
provements."
