Palestinian parliament
to decide on peaceplan

From AP and UPI
ALGIERS, Algeria - One of Yasser
Arafat's chief aides said yesterday that
the Palestinian exile parliament will
adopt a "clear-cut resolution" on
President Reagan's Middle East peace
initiative at its meeting this week.
Abu Jihad, Arafat's deputy military
commander in the Fatah guerrilla
organization, refused to elaborate. But
Ahmed Abdel Rahman, the Palestine
Liberation Organization's chief
spokesman and one of PLO chairman
Arafat's closest aides, told a news
"The Reagan plan has definitely not
been rejected outright."
THE 400-MEMBER Palestine
National Council opened a week-long
session Monday to consider various
Middle East proposals, and Arafat's
moderate majority clashed openly and
acrimoniously on the sidelines with a
Moscow-influenced, hard-line minority
opposed to peace moves through
Jordan's King Hussein. But the
pragmatic approach of the PLO chief
was virtually certain of overwhelming
Abu Jihad and Abdel Rahman
acknowledged that there were sharp

differences among the PLO leaders, but
Abdel Rahman told reporters these
"are being narrowed, and the council's
resolutions committee is drafting
compromise wording that will unite all
ranks of the Palestinian revolution.
Meanwhile, Lebanese army troops
marched into east Beirut yesterday in a
move President Amin Gemayel hopes
will reassert government control over
the stronghold of the Israeli-backed
Lebanese Christian militia for the first
time in eight years.
THE 1,600 Lebanese army troops
were deployed across east Beirut
without incident, but still faced the
tough task of neutralizing the Christian
militia forces who have vowed not to
disarm until all foreign troops,
especially Syrians and Palestinians,
leave Lebanon.
The Christian militiamen, who have
controlled east Beirut since the 1975-76
civil war, stayed off the streets while
the army took up positions.
"The world is watching us to judge
the quality of the Lebanese state and
whether it is able to rise again,"
Gemayel told the troops before they
moved into east Beirut about two hours
after midnight.

State may settle creationism
controversy out of court
LANSING-A meeting between State School Superintendent Phillip
Runkel and the chief of Jackson County's Western schools yesterday spurred
optimism that Michigan's leading creationism controversy can be resolved
out of court.
Western Superintendent Robert Bass declined to go beyond a terse
statement released through the state Education Department, but a
spokeswoman in his office said officials "expect it to be worked out" without
the state filing suit.
Further meetings are planned.
Runkel's meeting with Bass came one week after release of a state report
concluding that the Western district was improperly teaching
creationism-the Biblical version of the origins of life-as a science.
A panel of state and independent experts who reviewed the "Controversies
in Science" unit of the district's advanced high school science course con-
cluded that it made a "biased presentation toward creationism."
Gorsuch says most of EPA
criticism is 'harassment'
WASHINGTON-The head of the Environmental Protection Agency,
which is being investigated by a half-dozen congressional committees,
yesterday characterized much of the criticism of EPA as "political
Ann Gorsuch, however, told the Senate environmental and public works
committee that the EPA will act "aggressively" to clean up the nation's
worst toxic waste sites.
Gorsuch told a Senate committee that opponents have refused to
acknowledge that the EPA can do anything right and, instead, have fired
barbs to gain publicity themselves.
Noting the.rash of criticism directed at her agency, she said:
"Nobody can be that wrong all that much all the time. Personally, I have
to finally judge that a great deal of it is political harassment.
"You know the old rules," she continued. "You harass, delay, destroy,
and finally stop. The only thing that makes me very upset is that this type of
harassment probably will impede our progress toward our goal, which is
cleaning up America under superfund."
Temperatures shoot up in East
Winter about-faced in the East yesterday with a flow of 50-degree tem-
peratures that shrank mountains of dirty snow dumped by the Blizzard of
'83-but left a commuter's nightmare of slushy, bottlenecked roads.
The mercury soared in eastern cities buried by up to 3 feet of snow in last
weekend's blizzard, blamed for at least 71 deaths. Early afternoon mercury
soared to 51 in Washington, 50 in Baltimore and 41 at Philadelphia. Tem-
peratures near 50 were forecast in New York.
Only about 1,000 miles of Philadelphia's 2,600 miles of streets had been
cleared, with another 800 miles were listed as passable, in an operation that
had already cost the city more than $2.5 million. Philadelphia got more than
21 inches of snow in the blizzard, a record for the city.
By contrast, New York City had cleared practically all of its 6,000 miles of
streets at a cost of about $5 million.
Lucious Riccio, an assistant sanitation commissioner in New York,
calculated that with 20 inches or more of snow falling on the city, about 100
million cubic yards were cleared from the streets.
State prison under lockdown
MARQUETTE-Inmates at Marquette State Prison were under a "partial
lockdown" yesterday because of two disturbances in which four guards were
injured by rebellious inmates.
In the most serious incident, nine dangerous inmates overpowered three
guards in segregated Housing Unit B Monday at the end of a scheduled exer-
cise period.
Assistant Warden Paul Maynard said the prisoners attacked without war-
ning, taking the guards' keys, which can open half the cells in the block.
Maynard said the inmates had control of the keys for about 12 minutes
before the disturbance was brought under control by guards with shotguns.
The three guards were treated for cuts and bruises. Maynard described
the uprising as "potentially serious."
"We can only assume they intended to free the other prisoners," Maynard
said. "The apparent goal was to take control of the housing unit."
Soviets test-fire new missile
WASHINGTON-The Soviet, Union has fired a new intercontinental
ballistic missile in a test which could raise questions about whether Moscow
is violating the unratified SALT II nuclear arms treaty, U. S. intelligence
sources said late yesterday.
Officials said a small, solid-fuel missile was launched Feb. 8 from Plesetsk
and that preliminary analysis of information picked up by American
monitoring equipment suggests it may have been the first successful test of
a second new Soviet ICBM.
"It was a missile we haven't seen before," said one of the sources, who
spoke only on condition they not be named.

U. S. officials confirmed last December that the Soviets had test-fired a
medium-sized, solid-fuel ICBM.
The SALT II treaty specifies that the Soviet Union and the United States
may flight-test and deploy only one new type of ICBM, which must be a light
one, according to a July 21, 1979, letter signed by then-Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance in submitting the treaty to President Carter.

LIM STARTED THE memo board
drawings two weeks ago when he
recreated the back cover of the Boom-
town Rat's album, The Fine Art of Sur-
facing for a friend.
"It was just a spur of the moment
thing," Lim said.
Since then, Lim has reproduced
album covers from Split Enz, Elvis
Costello, XTC, English Beat, and the
Stray Cats,and several famous works of
art. He also drew an Argyle sock pat-
tern on the memo board of two
"sorority girls," he said.
LIM'S ART HAS escaped the usual
grafitti and vandalism that most dorm
memo boards are victims to. So far no
one has even run a finger through his
work, Lim said.
The only drawing that has disap-
peared Lim erased himself, to put up
another drawing.
Residents have responded positively
to Lim's work, said Hinsdale resident
Mary Toole, and the drawings may

even promote unity among the residen-
ts. "Everyone is protecting everyone
else's chalkboards," Toole said.
The only problem with the drawings,
she added, is that people who want to
leave notes have to write on the doors.
Lim, from southwest Detroit went to
a small Catholic school. As a high
school student there, he was not serious
about art. "I took normal art classes
that everybody else took," he said. "I
never took it seriously."
Last year Lim was ready to pursue a
premed curriculum, he said. But
driving home from a concert he had a
sudden inspiration to become a com-
mercial artist.
At that point, he became serious, he
said. "But I'm still growing," he ad-
Now Lim wants to enroll in the art
school. He calls his drawings "My
homework-for the art school."
Lim hopes to graduate from the art
school and move to New York, he said.
