Brezhnev for "an immediate interven-
tion to put an end to the massacre per-
petrated by the Zionist enemy
aimed at annihilating the Lebanese and
Palestinian peoples," WAFA reported.
WAFA SAID Arafat stressed to
Brezhnev "the Soviet Union's full
responsibility as one of the two super-
powers to stop the massacre and force
an Israeli withdrawal from Beirut and
The agency also said the PLO chief
asked Pope John Paul II, with whom
Arafat had a private audience last
week, to intervene to "stop crimes
committed against unarmed
Palestinian and Lebanese civilians."
WAFA said Arafat also sent
messages to French President Fran-
cois Mitterrand, and to the Saudi
Arabian monarchy following reports
from Beirut that Christian militiamen
had massacred residents of the Chatilla
and Sabra Palestinian refugee camps.
The horrific remains of men, women and children lay scattered on the ground in Sabra, a PLO camp in west Beirut,
Palestinian victims of massacre Friday and Saturday. A Christian militia group has been held responsible.

troops occupying west Beirut would
leave in stages over several weeks as
the Lebanese army was able to assume
control of key positions in the city.
The government was officially closed
because of the Jewish Rosh Hashana
new year observances, and officials
were not readily available.
Expressions of shock came from
capitals around the world. The U.S. and
French governments announced they
had joined with Italy in asking the
United Nations to send-observers to the
THE INTERNATIONAL Committee of
the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland,
said it "has learned wounded people
were killed in their hospital beds."
Radio Moscow charged that Israel
and the Lebanese Christian rightists
are "following a policy of genocide"
The Israeli military spokesman said
the attack on Chatilla was carried out
by members of the militia loyal to the
Phalange Party of President-elect
Bashir Gemayel, whose assassination
last week spurred the Israeli takeover
of the Moslem western half of the
FOLEY AND LaBelle said some sur-
vivors said the attackers were
Phalangists but others said they
believed they were from the militia
commanded by Saad Haddad, a
renegade Christian army major who
controls a zone along the Israeli border
that he calls "Free Lebanon."
The PhalangerParty denied the in-
volvement. There was no comment
from Haddad's group.
None of those interviewed yesterday
by Foley and LaBelle said they saw
Israelis in the camps.
The Tel Aviv military spokesman
said Phalange gunmen "broke into the
edge of the Chatilla camp Friday night,
and troops leaving told the Israeli
Defense Forces they had a sharp battle
and both sides suffered casualties. The
IDF intervened and stopped the
HE DID NOT say how that was ac-
complished, but insisted Israeli forces
never entered the camp.
One western reporter described the
scene of the massacre as follows:
"All were shot in the head and the
heart. It looked as if they died instantly.
That execution-style killingawas one of
the first things I saw at the camp.
"The rest was more horrible.
"BODIES OF women and -children
were stretched together in a pile of
mutilated human remains. Some
looked no older than six or seven years.
"They were already bloated from the
scorching heat, and swarms of flies
hummed loudly as they fed on the
"It was a hellish sight, like that seen
at Jonestown, except these people did
not choose to die. They were murdered."

Negotiators pessimistic about
efforts to avert rail strike
WASHINGTON - Negotiators bargained into the night yesterday in hopes
of averting a nationwide rail strike, but hours before the strike deadline the
union's president expressed doubt that a walkout could be averted.
The union representing 26,000 locomotive engineers set a strike deadline
for 12:01 a.m. today.
A walkout by the enginers would affect almost all of the country's freight
carriers and many passenger trains in the South and West. A rail industry
spokesman said, however, most railroads had plans that would keep some
trains running with supervisors at the controls.
"They'd keep trains running to provide vital services," said Christopher
Knapton, a spokesman for the American Association of Railroads. He noted
that past railroad strikes usually have been brief.
As the deadline approached, union officials were pessimistic about the
chances of an agreement.
Dems unveil budget plan
WASHINGTON- A broad coalition of House Democrats unveiled yester-
day a blueprint for economic recovery that rejects traditional party
solutions in favor of Republican-sounding calls for balanced budgets, lower
tax rates and long-term investments in national growth.
The 23-page manifesto, prepared by the House Democratic Caucus, could
herald a fundamental shift in the Democratic Party's long-held philosophy
of dealing with unemployment and other economic problems through short-
term measures, such as jobs programs or credit controls.
"This is a significant departure, I think, for the Democratic Party," said
Rep. Timothy Wirth of Colorado, who headed the task force that wrote the
"We want to move away from a temporary economic policy of
redistribution (of wealth) to a long-term policy of growth and opportunity."
The policy statement, prepared by a 37-member caucus representing par-
ty liberals, moderates and conservatives, shuns previous Democratic calls
for full employment. At a time when unemployment is at the highest level in
40 years, the paper identifies inflation as the nation's most persistent
Thousands mourn Princess
MONTE CARLO, Monaco- Grace Kelly was given a last farewill yester-
day in the same cathedral where her epic wedding 26 years ago turned a
movie queen into a princess.
"From now on, she will know the most radiant'. . . encounter of all,"
Monaco's archbishop eulogized during the requiem Mass attended by a
galaxy of Hollywood stars and royalty.
Her prince, Rainier III, sat crumpled in grief in his red-velvet chair,
brushing back tears with a black-gloved hand.
Several hours later, the prince led his people at another funeral Mass he
requested be held for Monaco residents unable to attend the first service in
the 800-seat cathedral overlooking the Mediterranean.
The palace said the body would be entombed in the cathedral at an unan-
nounced time, in the presence of the families of the House of Grimaldi and
the Kellys of Philadelphia.
Buffalo newspaper closes
BUFFALO, N.Y.- The.148-year-old Buffalo Courier-Express went to
press for the last time yesterday in an atmosphere of sadness, frustration
"We leave with the knowledge that we were able to make- vast im-
provements in the newspaper during the past three years, thereby con-.
tributing to the well-being of the Buffalo community," said Otto Silha,
chairman of the morning paper's owner, the Minneapolis-based Cowles
On Sept. 12, it was announced that unless a buyer could be found before
Sunday, the paper would close. During the days after the announcement,
metro editor Mark Francis said, "hopes rose and fell, often times in respon-
se to the dozens of rumors that swept the newsroom."
Silha said the close-down of the newspaper will affect 1,100 employees, 850
of them full-time.
Kidnapped child returned safely
GREENVILLE, Texas- The 8-week-old son of a bank president was safe
at home yesterday after being abducted and held for $50,000 in ransom by a
man whose bank loan application had been turned down, authorities said.
The man, who collected the ransom, remained at large, and Hunt County
Sheriff's Capt. Rickie Click said he believed the man did not act alone.
Click said authorities were working on several leads. "We have a good
description of the guy," he said. "He left a car he had stolen earlier in the
day in Greenville....
The child, Clay Lewis, was found unharmed in the Dallas suburb of
Mesquite about two hours after his abduction Friday, investigators said.
"We're just greatly relieved," said Gordon Lewis, the boy's father.
