PLO hard liners push Arafat
to reject Reagan peace plan


From AP and UPI
DAMASCUS, Syria - Palestine
Liberation Organization chairman
Yasser Arafat is facing a rebellion by
hard-line factions that threatens to end
any chance the PLO will join President
Reagan's Middle East peace initiative.
The challenge to Arafat's moderate
policies could lead to a showdown next
week at meetings in Algiers of the
PLO's Executive Committee and the
Feb. 14 Palestine National Council, the
group's parliament in exile.
THE REAGAN plan did not call for
an independent Palestinian state, but
suggested the Palestinian residents of
the Israeli-occupied territories set up
an association with neighboring Jor-
Arafat is expected to be re-elected

chairman, but may be forced to adopt a
harder line.
Arafat will be called to account for
his talks with King Hussein on a con-
federation with Jordan, his contacts
with Egypt - which was ostracized by
the Arab world for signing a peace
treaty with Israel - and most of all for
failing to consult or inform other PLO
leaders of his plans and initiatives.
"THIS WILL be one of the most im-
portant meetings in the history of the
PLO," said Bassam Abu-Sharif, a
member of the PLO's Central Commit-
tee and the radical Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine.
Meanwhile, conflict continued in
Lebanon as Druze and Christian
fighting overflowed from the Lebanese
mountains yesterday, sending shells

and rockets smashing into east Beirut
and killing five people. Stray shells hit
U.S. Marine positions.
The 90-minute barrage against the
Christian half of the capital hit as the
streets were crowded with early
evening traffic, sending people
scurrying for cover.
CHRISTIAN Palange radio reported
five people were killed and 44 wounded
in the attack on the city, with most
leaving hospitals after treatment.
The radio said three civilians died in
a car hit by a shell near the same spot
where police said another shell killed
two members of the Lebanese security
police and wounded five.
There was no immediate report on
the casualties in the fighting on the
edge of the city. The Marines said the

stray shells in their area landed har-
In southern Lebanon, three ex-
plosions rocked the Ayoun area 8 miles
north of Israel's northernmost city of
Metullah, the Israeli Military said.
Israel radio said there were no in-
juries and no damage in the area,
where U.N. peace-keeping forces have
been deployed since 1978.
The radio quoted the U.N. group
command as saying it did not detect
any shelling yesterday.
The fighting near Beirut, which has
continued almost non-stop for six days,
erupted when radio reports said there
was an unsuccessful attempt to kill a
Druze leader Thursday night by-setting
off a bomb near his car.

New VD tests will be quicker and cheaper

WASHINGTON (AP) - Costly and time-
consuming tests to diagnose venereal diseases and
other maladies caused by micro-organisms should
soon be replaced by quicker and cheaper techniques
under development, scientists say.
Government researchers have developed a quick,
new test to diagnose herpes virus infections,
something that will help pregnant women who fear-
that these infections could endanger their babies, say
scientists at the National Institutes of Health.
THE TESTS currently take up to seven days to con-
firm the herpes virus, compared with only one day
for the new method, they say.
At the same time, scientists at the University of
Washington in Seattle report they have developed
tests to quickly detect gonorrhea, chlamydia and

herpes, three of the most common venereal diseases.
The tests, developed with the aid of two private
companies, eventually could lead to reliable, 20-
minute diagnoses of these sexually transmitted
diseases instead of the several days it takes with
present methods, said the report.
THE MOST immediate application of the new NIH
test will affect pregnant women known to have
previously acquired genital herpes. They fear that
the incurable venereal disease might unexpectedly
flare up to an infectious stage at the time of delivery.
The virus is particularly dangerous to newborns
because of their underdeveloped immune systems,
Herpes infections in babies can result in blindness,
hearing loss, seizures, mental retardation, per-
manent brain damage, and death.

Studies indicate that between 40 percent and 60
percent of infants delivered vaginally by mothers wih
active genital herpes become infected, and the mor-
tality rate for these babies is about 50 percent.
EXPERTS estimate that one in 7,000 babies is born
with herpes. Because of the time it takes to run stan-
dard tests, a woman near term may not find out she
has an active infection until after the baby is
The NIH test, said to be about 100 percent accurate,
was developed by Drs. Lata Nerurkar, Annamma
Jacob, David Madden, and John Sever of the National
Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disor-
ders and Stroke.

restrict flow
of literature
banning and budget-balancing are
restricting the flow of diverse, high-
quality literature to the nation's
elementary and secondary classrooms,
a Michigan State University educator
English Prof. Stephen Tchudi said a
comeback for traditional, multi-use an-
thologies will "do very little to make
reading a more important part of young
people's lives."
IN THE 1960s and early 1970s studen-
ts "were reading the kind of books
which allowed them to find connection
to their own lives," he said. "This gave
the study of literature more impact,"
he said.
The return to using large, standar-
dized anthologies, he said, is motivated
in part by fiscal considerations.
Tchudi said, "It's less expensive for
school districts to invest in these multi-
use books than in single-use books such
as novels, and school districts are faced
with lower book-buying budgets these
Fear of censorship is another
motivation, he says.
"Parents overestimated the 'dangers'
of books. If children read a four-letter
word, it doesn't mean they're going to
wind up shooting heroin in the alley."
House robbed
Stereo and camera equipment and a
color TV valued at 12,150 was stolen
from a house on the 100 block of Ravina.
Ann Arbor police said the robbery oc-
curred between 5 p.m. Wednesday and
5:30 p.m. Thursday. The front door had
been forced open.

Last Soviet satellite chunk
will burn up, officials say
WASHINGTON - The highly radioactive third and final chunk of the Soviet
spy satellite is expected to burn up in the atmosphere between 6:20 a.m.
Monday and 8 a.m. EST Wednesday, Air Force officials said yesterday.
The main part of Cosmos 1402, weighing several tons, made its fiery entry
Jan. 23, with any remaining debris plunging into the Indian Ocean about
1,800 miles southeast of the Indian subcontinent
Air Force officials said the spyship's reactor section, believed to contain
about 100 pounds of enriched uranium, weighs only a few hundred pounds
and is orbiting the Earth once every 88 minutes.
It was separated from the main radar and guidance section when a Soviet-
ordered maneuver in late December failed to loft the satellite into a higher
"parking" orbit that would have kept it in space for up to 800 years.
Salvadoran rebels route
government forces in North
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Leftist guerrillas fighting on three fronts
routed government defenders in one town and attacked another yesterday
just six miles from a provincial capital serving as base for a 6,000-man army
The 20-day government counteroffensive in northeastern Morazan provin-
ce in which 6,000 men participated has failed to drive off rebels using the nor-
thern reaches of the province as one of their main bases, military officers
Guerrillas attacked the Morazan village of Sociedad, just six miles east of
the provincial capital of San Francisco Gotera, a city of 10,000 residents 76
miles northeast of San Salvador, officers said.
No casualties were reported in the two-hour attack.
Nicaraguan troops kill 73
rightest guerillas near border
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Nicaraguan troops killed 73 rightest guerrillas
inspired by U.S.-Honduran war games in two clashes near the Honduran
border in Miskito Indian territory, the government said yesterday.
The heaviest fighting occurred last Saturday in the Nicaraguan border
town of Bismuna, where 58 rightists were killed, the Defense Ministry said,
and another 15 "counterrevolutinaries" died in comb'at Sunday in nearby
Cano La Leona.
A ministry spokesman said five Sandinista Army soldiers died and five
more were wounded in the fighting about 200 miles northeast of Managua in
Zelaya Norte province and about six miles from the border with Honduras'
Gracias a Dios province.
U.S., China revive dialogue
on arms sales to Taiwan
PEKING Secretary of State George Shultz and Chinese Communist
leaders cautiously revived a military dialogue yesterday despite China's
anger over U.S. arms sales to Taiwan.
Shultz, nearing the end of four days of extensive talks in Peking, concludes
his visit today by conferring with China's most authoritative leader Deng
Xiaoping, architect of China's decision to normalize relations with the
United States in 1979 after three decades of hostility and suspicion.
Shultz met with Defense Minister Zhang Aiping and they agreed to set up a
group to explore military issues. It was the first forward step on military
matters since former secretary of State Alexander Haig announced two
years ago that the United States was ready to consider selling weapons to
China on a case-by-case basis.
The Chinese never accepted the offer because of the dispute over U.S.
weapons sales to Taiwan, seat of the rival Chinese Nationalist government.
Peking considers Taiwan a renegade province and has demanded that the
sales stop.
U.S. officials say the new group is authorized to do no more than study
possibilities for increased cooperation in military medicine and professional
military training, both areas in which cooperation and changes have con-
Weinberger angers Israelis
Israeli officials yesterday accused Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger
of looking for fights and playing "a dangerous game" by praising a Marine
who drew a gun on an Israeli tank patrol in Beirut.
Meanwhile, Christian east Beirut came under renewed Druse shelling and
France prepared to send more peacekeepers to Lebanon.
In Tel Aviv, Economics Minister Yaacov Meridor said Weinberger was
looking for a fight with Israel by saying that Israeli actions in dealing with
Marines stationed near Beirut were "both unnecessary and basically
damaging to the president's efforts to "secure peace in the whole area."
On Wednesday Marine Capt. Charles Johnson waved a pistol an an Israeli
tank patrol during a dispute over which side had control over a piece of
territory in the Lebanese capital, and Weinberger praised Johnson's conduct
as worthy of a commendation.
Meridor told Israel radio: "There are factions that do not particularly like
us, like Weinberger. He doesn't praise Israel every Monday and Thursday.
They are looking for conflicts."
An Israeli Foreign Ministry official, briefing reporters on condition he not
be named, said Weinberger may have reacted without knowing all the facts

of the incident, and said the Israeli Embassy in Washington would discuss
the matter with the Pentagon and the State Department.
