BEIRUT, Lebanon - The Lebanese
Parliament conducted its second
presidential election in less than a mon-
th yesterday, replacing the slain Bashir
Gemayel with his brother Amin, a 39-
year-old lawyer who vowed to
"shoulder the monumental respon-
sibility ... of reuniting and reconstruc-
ting Lebanon."
The new president-elect, a Maronite
Christian, was voted into office 77-0
with three abstentions among the
Moslem and Christian deputies atten-
ding a special session of the
Parliament.
A contingent of 1,800 Marines boar-
ded a five-ship task force headed to
Beirut yesterday after the' Israeli
Cabinet agreed to the return of the
multi-national force. Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger said they
could be in Lebanon within 72 hours to
join French and Italian troops in the
shattered city.
THE REAGAN administration said
that Israel must shoulder the respon-
sibility for the massacres in Palestinian
refugee camps in Beirut last week,
which prompted the U.S. to send in the
Marines.
John Hughes, the State Department
spokesman, said "the fact is that Israel
assumed responsibility for military
control of Beirut, and these events did
happen during that period when Israel
assumed military control."
President Reagan and top ad-
ministration officials said yesterday
there is no way of knowing how long the
U.S. Marines will remain in Lebanon.

oward
BOTH SECRETARY of State George
Shultz and White House spokesman
Larry Speakes repeated that the
president expects it to be "of limited
duration."
Under the 1973 War Powers Act, the
president can deploy U.S. troops over-
seas for 60 days and, under extraor-
dinary circumstances for up to 90 days,
before he must seek congressional ap-
proval.
Details on how the troops wil be
deployed have not been worked out yet,
Weinberger told reporters, but he said
their mission will be "very limited"

Beirut
and that they will not patrol Beirut's
streets or function as a police force.
HE SAID HE expects the Marines
would be withdrawn if a combat
situation developed.
Weinberger said yesterday that the
presence of the multinational force in
Beirut should "produce some breathing
room" for the new government in
Lebanon to establish itself.
Lebanon's new president, Amin
Gemayel, will be sworn in tomorrow to
replace President Elias Sarkis for a six-
year term.

Israel rejects pleas for
inquiry into slayings

By KENT REDDING
The University campus will be
besieged by government dignitaries-
including former Presidents Carter and
Ford and four former secretaries of
state-over the next five months.
The attraction for these and many
other former officials will be two
ational political conferences to be held
t the Ford Presidential Library on
North Campus, one in November and
one in February.
NOVEMBER'S conference-a
national forum on foreign policy-will
bring in Ford and the former top State
Department, officials, including Dean
Rusk, Wilham Rogers, Edmund
Muskie, and Alexander Haig. Former
National Security advisers Zbigniew
Brzenski and Brent Scowcroft have also

agreed to come.
In February, Ford will join the man
who took the presidency from him,
Jimmy Carter, for a separate national
forum on domestic policy. Both will
deliver major addresses on current
issues, mainly Social Security, jobs,
and productivity.
The director of the Ford Library, Don
Wilson, said that while final
arrangements still have to be made,
"we are anticipating some (represen-
tatives) from the current ad-
ministration" to attend the February
conference.
ANN ARBOR was chosen for the
event; which is bound to draw nation-
wide attention, because its sponsors
wanted it to be held at a presidential
library. And since Ford agreed to
preside over the forum, his library was

chosen. According to Wilson, it was
Ford who invited Carter to join him as
co-chairman of the conference.
Although the conference's sponsor,
the Ohio-based Domestic Policy
Association, has billed the conference
as an attempt to bring together top
policymakers with common citizens,
the public will not be invited to the
forum. Instead, the leaders will hear
from about 10 representatives of town
meetings across the country, who will
deliver presentations on the main
issues.
"The main reason (why the public
will not be allowed) is the lack of space,
and secondly, when you have two for-
mer presidents, the security is un-
believable," said Wilson.

JERUSALEM (AP) - Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's gover-
nment yesterday rejected calls for an
official inquiry into the Palestinian
refugee camp massacres.
Controversy and strife over the mass
slayings in west Beirut erupted across a
broad political spectrum in Israel.
There were accusations of a cover-up
demonstrations by Israeli Jews and
Israeli Arabs, and strikes and violence
in the occupied West Bank.
ISRAELI TROOPS fired live am-
munition and rubber bullets at rock-
throwing Palestinian youths in Nablus,
but no injuries were reported.

on wayward bicyclists

Begin's Cabinet met for 5 hours
against the background of
Washington's insistent demand for an
immediate Israeli withdrawal from
Beirut and a domestic clamor for a
complete accounting of how the
massacre occurred and whether Israel
should bear some responsbility for it.
Begin's spokesman, Ura Porat,
quoted the prime minister as telling his
cabinet, "Goyim (gentiles) gilled goyim
and already the world wants to hang the
Jews." Israel has said Lebanese
Christian militiamen carried out the
killings in the camps, where the

Senate to
end strike,
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON- The Senate voted
Tuesday night to order 26,000 striking
locomotive engineers to end their
nationwide railroad strike, but House
action was not planned for at least
another day.
The measure, approved on a voice
vote, requires the union to accept a set-
tlement recommended by a special
commission that had been named
during a 60-day cooling-off period.
Most of the nation's freight trains and
many Amtrak passenger trains in the
West and South, meanwhile, remained
idle as the walkout by 26,000 locomotive
engineers headed into its fourth day.
THE TRANSPORTATION Depar-
tment estimated the cost of the strike at
between $500 million to $1 billion to the
struggling economy. The rail shutdown
has put 450,000 people out of work, most
of them in the rail industry, and stran-
ded commuters in several cities.
The joint resolution proposed by the
Reagan administration, criticized by
some Democrats as an unwelcome in-

Bicycle buffs accustomed to zipping
and swerving through traffic and red
lights may encounter an additional
hazard - a traffic ticket.
"I wouldn't call it a crackdown, but
we are enforcing (the traffic laws). A
bicycle should be operated the same as
a car, observing stoplights, stop signs
and one-way street signs," said Capt.
Kenneth Klinge of the Ann Arbor Police
Department.
KLINGE DID not give a specific
reason for the increase in ticketing, but
he pointed to a growing concern about
bicycle-related injuries in the city as
one possible explanation.
"We want to try and keep the
bicyclists alive and in school until next
year," said Police Officer Craig Mason.
For those unlucky cyclists who are
caught biking straight down State
Street from Olga's to the Michigan
*Union, an additional trip to the city's
Fifteenth District Court will be
necessary. To pay the ticket, the
bicyclist must go to the court clerk
within 14 days, or on the date set on the
ticket, according to Court Clerk James
Lesser.
AT THE COURT, the bicyclist has the

waiting for the light. I don't want to be the

option to pay a fine of $20 (for any
violation) or plead not guilty, in which
case the police officer is contacted, and
a hearing is held before a district court
judge.
Neither the police department nor the
court has a record of the number of
recent traffic violations, but Klinge
said ticketing "has probably in-
creased."
Thomas Pendleton, the city's bicycle
coordinator, said he is in favor of the
increased ticketing. "As long as we've
got bikers who are getting hit by other
bikers, we've got to clamp down. The
biker who runs red lights or stop signs

makes enemies of every motorist who's
waiting for the light. I don't want to be
the next biker they see."
PENDLETON said he does not think
Ann Arbor has adequate facilities for
all its bicyclists. "We're trying to get
some money to do something; bike
paths are very expensive." Pendleton
estimates that building a bike path
would cost 'about $50,000 a mile.
Bicyclists are permitted by law to ride
on the sidewalks where the roads can-
not accommodate them, but
pedestrians do not appreciate that, he
added.

LAST SUNDAY marked the first appearance of the
University's Law Library book brigade. The
alarm went out Sunday afternoon-a water heater
Lhad burst, soaking a second floor conference
room and hallway, and leaking through the first floor
ceiling. Quickly, some industrious Law Review students
formed a book brigade, hauling books out of the danger

more of the city's finest are becoming pregnant. The new
flexibility was introduced because some precinct comman-
ders would not allow pregnant officers to wear maternity
clothes "until they literally couldn't fit into their uniforms
anymore," said Deputy Police Commissioner Alice
McGillion. Commissioner Robert McGuire said he has ap-
pointed a committee to find a "modest, practical, attrac-
tive maternity uniform." McGillion said other major police
departments also do not have maternity uniforms. She said
they let women wear civilian maternity clothes. But
McGuire said that because the women were fully sworn of-
ficers, they should wear an appropriate uniform. Halston

decorated bus at 75 m.p.h., Monday evening on Interstate 80
and pulled it over, hoping that the singing star was on
board. "But he wasn't there. I guess they rarely travel
together," he said. The six-person backup group was on its
way from South Dakota to the Chicago area, members told
him. Kinseth did get a tour of the bus. "Oh, mercy, it was
really something. So plush. In the back end are eight en-
closed bunks-each one with a private stereo, private
lights, private everything," he said. Up front, the interstate
