Begin considers inquiry
of Palestinian massacre
From AP and UPI
TEL AVIV, Israel- Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, pressed for a full ac-
count of Israel's role in the Beirut
massacre, will consider establishing an
independent inquiry commission,
Israel Television reported yesterday.
President Yitzhak Navon, in a rare
intrusion into government affairs by a
ceremonial head of state, said Israel
owed it to itself and "the civilized
world" to make an impartial inquiry in-
to the massacre.
MILITARY officials and Begin's
Cabinet issued detailed statements
disputing Israeli press claims that the
government knew for 36 hours that
civilians were being killed in the Sabra
and Chatilla Palestinian camps of west
Beirut before they intervened.
In Jerusalem, a senior Israeli official
said the Lebanese army has agreed to
move into the Chatilla, Sabra and
Fakahani Palestinian refugee camps
on the outskirts of west Beirut at 10
a.m. Sunday morning (2 a.m. EDT).
The massacre of the Palestinians in
the two camps spurred negotiations
that had been scheduled between the
Lebanese and Israeli army officers, the
President Navon, on state radio and
television, made a veiled call for
resignations if the responsibility falls
on Israeli figures, as he used the Israeli
political euphemism for resignation-
"to draw conclusions.'
Navon said: "Our obligation to our-
selves and to the civilized world of
which we consider ourselves part°is to
clarify immediately and precisely,
through reliable and independent men,
everything that occurred in this unfor-
tunate business. If it should be shown to
be necessary, then we must draw the
full conclusions from this
THE NATIONAL Religious Party,
part of Begin's ruling coalition in
Parliament, supported the demand for
an inquiry. The television said former
President Ephraim Katzir and two
leading academics also issued calls for

decide to establish a committee of its
own accord," Minister without Por-
tfolio Yitzhak Modai said on television,
"but with a personality who will be ac-
ceptable to all circles in Israel and
preferrably circles outside Israel too."
Begin will consider proposing an
inquiry' commission at a Cabinet
meeting scheduled for today, Israel
Television said. It reported initially
that the prime minister had agreed to
such a commission, but made a correc-

WILMINGTON, Del. (UPI) - A judge
yesterday cleared the way for a special
meeting of Bendix Corp. stockholders
today where measures will be presen-

Should Marietta succeed in acquiring
a majority interest, Bendix and Mariet-
