Wazzan resigns 10 aid

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Prime Minister
Chefic Wazzan and his cabinet submit-
ted their resignations to President
Amin Gemayel yesterday only hours
after a cease-fire stopped fighting in
Wazzan, a Sunni Moslem, and his 10-
mpan Cabinet bowed to the demands of
the Syrians and Druse leader Walid
Jumblatt and resigned to pave the way
for a national unity government.
Gemayel, a Christian, said he asked
the 58-year-old prime minister to stay
on "until the features of the new era
crystallize, and arrangements to usher
it in are completed."

Wazzan, had become a target of
Syrian and rebel criticism of the
Christian-dominated government of
"I made this decision before the start
of national negotiations that will result
in establishing a national Cabinet in-
volving all parties concerned," Wazzan
said on radio. "I submitted by
resignation to the president in order to,
facilitate the future changes."
The cease-fire, mediated by Saudi
Arabia and the United States appeared
to be holding despite isolated sniper fire
and a few mortar shells. The 6 a.m.
truce ended a month of fighting that left

some 700 people dead.
However, army sources said three
militiamen tried to infiltrate Souk el-
Gharb about two and a half hours after
the cease-fire, Druse snipers killed two,
soldiers at Kaifoun, less than a mile
away, and the troops in Kaufoun fired
automatic rifles and .30-caliber
machine guns for at least 30 minutes at
the snipers 30 yards away.
The government's Radio Beirut
reported after nightfall that army
positions in the mountain village of
Kabr Chmoun were under fire from
rocket-propelled grenades and
automatic rifles, but the government

troops were not shooting back.
But the radio said army troops fired
at snipers shooting at them from Shiite
Moslem neighborhoods in the Beirut
suburbs and that about 20 military
vehicles were spotted at sunset headed
toward the Druse mountain garrison of
In another sign of strain, the right-
wing Christian "Lebanese Forces"
militia predicted Syria would attempt
to use the cease-fire to "stir up internal
trouble" and extend its influence in

way for congressional ap-

Congress asked
to compromise
War Powers
to lengthen
stay in Beirut

proval of a compromise with the White House that
would allow U.S. Marines to stay in Beirut for 18mon-
The compromise resolution, prompted by the first of
four Marine deaths in Beirut under shelling by
Moslem militias Aug. 29, would recognize the
authority of Congress to limit the troops' stay there
under the War Powers Act of 1973, but would approve
keeping them in the Lebanese capital for 18 months,
if needed.
UNDER THE War Powers Act, a vote on the
resolution must take place by tomorrow. Senate
Majority Leader Howard Baker says he hopes to
complete the Senate debate today. The House is ex-
pected to begin debate tomorrow or Thursday.
Secretary of State George Shultz said the cease-fire
would bring no immediate change in the mission of
the 1,600 Marines who have been in Beirut for more
than a year. However, he said, "I think they will be a

little more comfortable in carrying that mission out."
Shultz said the cease-fire announced in Lebanon on
Sunday has taken effect and "things are settling
THE WAR POWERS Act requires the president to
notify Congress within 48 hours whenever he sends
combat troops abroad. If they are in a zone of
hostilities, he is required to bring them home in 60 to
90 days unless Congress declares war or authorizes
them to stay.
President Reagan has said he will sign the measure
if it reaches his desk in the form negotiated by his
aides and congressional leaders, even though he
takes exception to parts of the resolution concerning
his prerogatives as commander in chief.
Charles Mathias (R-Md.) supported the com-
promise Friday in the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, voting first to trim the Marines' stay to
six months, and then reversing himself after
Majority Leader Howard Baker (R-Tenn.) told him
the delicately arranged deal was 'turning to ashes."

U.S. to give China military
technology as relations improve
PEKING - Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger told Chinese officials
yesterday that most of the military technology they have requested from the
United States can be furnished now that China has been reclassified as a
friendly, non-allied, Weinberger's official spokesman reported.
The spokesman, who briefed reporters.on the condition that he not be iden-
tified, said Weinberger at a three-house meeting told Defense Minister
Zhang Aiping the U.S. Commerce Department can automatically approve 32
more items of civilian high technology with possible military use.
He said 11 more could be approved after further study and assurances
about the intended use.
Weinberger's offer to provide the Chinese with sophisticated technology is
considered a strong signal from the Reagan administration that it wants bet-
ter ties with Peking, including a strategic military dialogue.
China and the United States both oppose what they call Soviet military ex-
pansion. Though China-Soviet relations have improved recently, Peking still
says it considers the Soviet Union a threat to world peace.
21 IRA guerrillas still at large
after Britains biggest jailbreak
BELFAST, Northern Ireland - Police captured two more IRA guerrillas
who shot their way out of Belfast's Maze prison but the government said
yesterday it will be difficult to catch the 21 still at large.
Supporters of the Irish Republican Army set bonfires in Belfast to
celebrate what they called.,"the great escape" of 38 convicts from the
maximum security prison on Sunday. It was Britain's biggest jailbreak, and
three of those still on the run are among the Irish Republican Army's top
British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in Canada on an official visit,
called the jailbreak "a very serious incident . . . the gravest in our prison
Police have recaptured 17 geurrillas, including two who were grabbed
yesterday as they walked on a narrow country road 10 miles south of the
prison and a few miles north of the border with the Irish Republic.
Continental flights to resume
HOUSTON - Continental Airlines announced it will resume service to 25
U.S. cities today under protection of a federal bankruptcy court, cutting top
employees' salaries in half and offering $49 one-way domestic fares this
"We are very optimistic and very enthusiastic about our future," Con-
tinental President Frank Lorenzo said at a news conference yesterday.
"Now that costs are firmly under control, we can compete and build a Con-
tinental Airlines that our founders and everyone associated with us can be
proud of."
On Saturday Lorenza announced the nation's eighth-largest airline had
filed for reorganization and temporarily suspended flights to all 78 U.S.
cities it served after posting losses of $471.9 million since January 1979.
When Continental returns to service. it will have just 27 Dercent of the
flights it had prior to filing its reorganization petition, Lorenzo said. Domestic
service is being slashed by two-thirds- and only about 35 percent of the
airline's 12,000 employees will be on the job. More will be added as the com-
pany grows, he said.
International flights were not affected by the filing.
IMF sets new borrowing limits
WASHINGTON - Top officials of the International Monetary Fund said yes-
terday that their agreement setting limits on loans to needy nations allows
the agency to keep up its battle against the international financial crisis.
"We are now stronger. . . we will retain our role as catalyst in the fight,"
said Willy de Clercq, chairman of the agency's policy-making Interim
Financial ministers representing the Fund's 146 member states reached
agreement early yesterday to limit access to its lending pool.
The agreement cleared the air for the formal opening today of the IMF's
38th annual meeting in conjunction with its sister organization, the World
Together, they are the world's largest lending agencies. The IMF makes
loans to nations with severe debt loads and balance-of-payments problems
while the World Bank finances development projects, usually to the neediest
