BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)- Amin Gemayel was
sworn in as president yesterday, vowing to rebuild
the army and the government to end the "vicious
cycle of bloody violence" in Lebanon.
"Lebanese citizens, we are facing destiny-making
challenges," Gemayel said in his first speech to
Parliament as president. "The wars of others in
Lebanon and at Lebanon's expense must stop.
"I OFFER NO program of a new era because a
single concern grips us now. This is to stop the vicious
cycle of bloody violence on Lebanon's soil."
Gemayel, 40, began a six-year term by taking the
oath of office before Parliament at the Lebanese
military academy in Fayyadieh, three miles east of
Beirut. He replaces President Elias Sarkis.
Cabinet ministers, leaders of Lebanon's Moslems
and Christians, and foreign diplomats, including U.S.
presidential envoy Philip Habib, greeted Gemayel
when he arrived for the 50-minute ceremony.
WITH LOUD applause, Gemayel stepped up to the
rostrum and read the oath that was to have been
taken by his brother, Bashir Gemayel, killed by a
bomb on Sept. 14.
Amin Gemayel, a moderate member of the rightist
Christian Phalange Party, was overwhelmingly elec-
ted f Parliament Tuesday under an accord man-
dating that the president of Lebanon be a Christian

president sworn in

I offer no program of a new
era because a single concern
grips us now. This is to stop
the vicious cycle of bloody
violence on Lebanon's soil.'
-Amin Gemayel,
new president of Lebanon
and the prime minister a Moslem.
The new president's ability to rally the support of
his slain brother's men will be one of his first tests in
leading a country rent by sectarian feuding long
before the Israelis invaded June 6 to rout the
Palestine Liberation Organization.
HE TOOK office less than a week after the
' massacre of hundreds of men, women and children in
two Palestinian refugee camps in west Beirut.
Recriminations from last week's massacre con-
tinued to rock Israel.
An estimated 3,000 demonstrators, shouting "Begin
resign! ", marched on Prime Minister Menachem

Begin's home as protests continued over his gover-
nment's refusal to authorize an independent inquiry
into Israeli conduct during the mass killings, which
were carried out by Israel's Lebanese Christian
THE RESPECTED Israeli newspaper Haaretz
quoted two Israeli soldiers stationed near the
massacre scene as saying they suspected a slaughter
was under way in the Palestinian camps and had in-
formed their commanders, but were told: "It's all
right, don't worry."
Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon says Israeli
troops helped coordinate the Christian Phalangist
militia raid on the two predominantly Moselm cam-
ps, but never expected it to end in a massacre. He
says Israeli forces intervened to stop the bloodbath.
Lebanese Red Cross workers yesterday dug for
bodies among the earth and rubble pushed up by
bulldozers in an attempt to hide the bodies in the
Sabra and Chatilla camps.
A spokesman said five bodies were found yesterday
morning, bringing the total recovered to 298. Relief
officials said many more may be buried.
The Lebanese military prosecutor-general announ-
ced he had launched an official probe to try to deter-
mine who was responsible for the killings.

Dorms hold capacity crowds

Capacity crowds are filling the
University residence halls again this.
year, according to Housing Office
University dorms are booked 102 per-
cent, or 199 students over official
capacity, according to Housing Infor-
nation Director Leroy Williams.
THOSE 199 students, however, aren't
camping out in the halls, Williams said.
Much of that number is offset by the
conversion of double rooms with
adequate space and accommodations
into triple rooms, and by the fact that 85
! students who had leases didn't show up

to get their rooms in September.
The residence halls are now holding
9,628 students, up slightly from 9,579 at
the end of September last year. Over-
capacity figures are not unusual,
Williams added.
Williams also said that the housing
office was able to eliminate some of the
problems it had in the past with con-
fusion over room assignments by
having late applicants sign up for
rooms in July instead of in August, as
they had in previous years.
ALTHOUGH economic concerns are
undoubtedly greater now than they
have been in years past, Williams said

that students don't appear to be
requesting cheaper accommodations
than usual.
"Our demand is still for the
traditional double," Williams said.
Vacancy rates for the private
market, which houses two-thirds of the
University's students, have not been
calculated yet by the housing office.
