compromise

(Continued from Page 1)
Shultz, testifying before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee, urge
Congress to approve the compromise
resolution unchanged.
"He argued that the debate over the
War Powers Act had been "disturbing"
in threatening to undermine U.S. policy
in Lebanon. "The uncertainty about the
American commitment only weakens
our effectiveness," he said. "Doubts
about our staying power can only
cause the aggressors to discount our
presence, or to intensify their attacks,
in hopes of hastening our departure."
DECLARING that the U.S. military
role in Lebanon is strictly defensive
Shultz said, ".We do not think we are in-
volved in a civil war. We are supporting
the legitimate government of Lebanon.
... It is basically not our dispute."
In Beirut, Druse and Palestinian
militiamen tried again yesterday to
drive the Lebanese army out of the key
mountain town of Souk el-Gharb. But by
nightfall, the army and its tiny, agin
air force had repulsed the assault, the
government radio reported.
Capt. Youssef Atrissi, the Lebanese
army spokesman, said Druse and
Palestinian militiamen mounted a tank
and artillery assault after. midday
against the ridge-top town overlooking
Beirut and the U.S. Marine base at the
Beirut airport.
ATRISSI SAID Hawker Hunter jets
from the Lebanese air force attacked
Druse artillery blasting Souk el-Gharb
from the nearby town of Aley. He would
not say how many of the air force's
three operational jet fighters took part
in the raid, but AP correspondent
Robert R. Reid saw one firing what ap-
peared to be missiles at Druse
positions.
President, Reagan last week
authorized U.S. Navy ships to fire in
support of the U.S. Marines and other
troops of the multinational
peacekeeping force and also in support
of the Lebanese army when a threat to
it also constituted a threat to the
Marines.
The order underlined the importance
placed by the Reagan administration
on; the defense of Souk el-Gharb.:Of-
ficals in Washington said its loss ould
kill the Lebanese army's attempt toex-
tend its authority outside Beirut and
could threaten the existence of the
Gemayel government.
The Syrian government newspaper
Tishrin accused the United States of
heightening its involvement in the war
and said this could lead to clashes bet-
ween American and Syrian forces.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
American Telephone & Telegraph Co.
announced yesterday it would ask
federal regulators to approve long-
distance rate reductions of $1.75 billion
a year, the largest cut in telecom-
munications history.
The company did not spell out a
precise schedule for trimming its inter-

state rates. But in a filing with the
Federal Communications Commission
on July 29, AT&T estimated they could
be slashed from 10 percent to 15 per-
cent.
AT&T SAID details of the cutback
would be unveiled Oct. 3 when a formal
tariff, or rate schedule, is filed with the
agency.
However, spokesman Pic Wagner
said that a reduction in revenues of
$1.75 billion "will work out to a reduc-
tion in actual rates within that range of
10 percent to 15 percent for the average
customer."
AT&T's revenues for all interstate
services, including regular long-
distance calls, WATS service and
private business line service, totaled
$21.4 billion in 1982, Wagner said. The
reduction in revenue being proposed by
the company thus amounts to roughly
8.2 percent.

IF APPROVED by the FCC, the rate
reductions would take effect on Jan. 1,
the day on which AT&T is scheduled to
be broken apart to comply with an an-
titrust settlementWagner said.
"Our ability to make our planned
reductions in interstate long-distance
rates is dependent upon no changes or
delays in implementing the FCC's or-
der," said Morris Tanenbaum, the
chairman of the AT&T division that will
provide long-distance service after the
breakup.
In its access charge decision, the FCC
has decreed that starting next year,
residential customers will pay $2 a
month for the right to use the interstate
long-distance network and businesses
will pay $6 a month. Those charges are
the first part of the agency's plan to
eliminate the subsidy for local service
that is now built into the interstate
rates.

conference told him Soviet officials
had, in the'closed-door discussions, ex-
pressed regret over the incident.
Sebastian said the British "have
reason to believe that Moscow may
even change its position, give a fuller
version of events and perhaps even in
the future make some gesture of
compensation." He did not elaborate.
MEANWHILE, the West German
Defense Ministry said Soviet jetliners
using Frankfurt airport are equipped
with hidden cameras to spy on NATO
installations.-
It was responding to reports on West
German television, which showed films
Tuesday of an Aeroflot passenger plane
with lens-shaped bulges on the
fuselage. The TV report said spy

cameras could easily photograph the
U.S. Air Force's Rhein-Main airbase,
which is located across the runway
from the commercial airport.
Asked to comment, Bonn Defense
Ministry spokesman Juergen Reichar-
dt said, "yes, that's well known. The en-
tire transport capacity of Aeroflot and
the eastsbloc airlines also have
military uses."~
REICHARDT said Aeroflot jetliners
often change course in West German
airspace to fly over NATO installations,
but he said nothing could be done to
prevent this..
Japan said yesterday it would pick up
objects and documents retrieved by
Soviet ships but that no bodies would be
returned.
