BEIRUT, Lebanon - President Amin Gemayel
yesterday invited Lebanon's warring Christian and
Moslem leaders to peace talks next week, and U.S.
special envoy Robert McFarlane expressed op-
timism about "national reconciliation."
Officials had feared that protracted haggling over
the time and place of the talks would lead to a break-
down of the two-week-old cease-fire.
GEMAYEL'S invitations came after apparent
breakthroughs in talks between Syrian leaders and
MceFarlane, President Reagan's special Middle East
envoy, setting the presidential palace in Baabda as
the site of the talks and agreeing to the use of Greek
and Italian truce observers.
"Events of the last 48 hours have brought us to a
position where there is every promise that the
national reconciliation process is about to begin,"
McFarlane said.

Shamir sworn in as new leader
JERUSALEM - Yitzhak Shamir was sworn in as Israel's seventh prime
minister yesterday and pledged to follow the course charted by Menachem
Begin in Lebanon and the occupied West Bank.
Shamir won a 60-53 vote of confidence with one abstention in Parliament.
Communist deputy Charlie Biton was ejected for screaming insults when
Finance Minister Yoram Ariodor was at the podium. Several other leftists
walked out of the chamber in protest.
Shamir said he would remain foreign minister, a position he has held since
1980, and offered no signs of a change in foreign policy. He also made no
changes in the 19-minister Cabinet bequeathed to him by Begin, who
resigned on Sept. 15.
The coalition of five right-wing and religious parties and two independen-
ts, a virtual copy of the outgoing Begin government, controls 64 of the 120
seats in the Knesset.
The coalition got only 60 votes because Begin was absent along with Ahron
Abu-Hatzeira of the TAMI Party and Avraham Melamed of National
Religious Party. Yigael Hurvitz of the Likud bloc abstained.
The coalition is divided on economic and religious issues and there is some
doubt it will be able to survive two years until the next scheduled election.
U.S. botanist wins Nobel Prize
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Botanist Barbara McClintock, whose genetic
work on corn led to the discovery of "jumping genes" and a greater under-
standing of cancer, won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Medicine yesterday.
The faculty of Swden's Karolinska Institute said it awarded McClintock
the prize mainly for her 1951 discovery of moveable genes in Indian corn - a
discovery that was largely ignored for two decades.
Only in the 1970s, after genes were found to move in bacteria, did other
scientists begin to look at her work more seriously.
McClintock, who still works at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long
Island, N.Y., is the first woman to receive the prize in medicine for work she
did alone.
The Institute, whose faculty names Nobel laureates in medicine, said Mc-
Clintock's experiments "reveal a whole world of previously unknown
genetic phenomenon."~
Political violence may surge,
Panamanian president says
PANAMA CITY, Panama - President Ricardo de la Espriella told former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger yesterday that political violence could
hit Panama if the United States does not provide more economic aid.
The country, vital to the United States because of the Panama Canal, is
suffering a severe recession and high unemployment. The social problems
"if not promptly solved, could change into social unrest and the loss of peace
we value so highly," the president said.
At the same time, de la Espriella said, political violence in Central
America is increasing. He described it as "a crisis that is...getting closer" to
Kissinger, heading a U.S. commission, is on a six-day tour of Central
America to gather information for a report to President Reagan on for-
mulating long-term U.S. policy for the region.
Hypnosis to aid'in murder case
SHERMAN, Texas - A sheriff said yesterday he will hypnotize a widow to
see if she can remember the name of the man who may have killed her
husband and three others after arranging a meeting to discuss buying an
ultralight airplane.
The bodies of B&B Ranch owner and Denison building contractor Bob
Tate; Grayson County sheriff's deputy Philip Good; and Shermtn.painting
contractor Jerry Brown were found Saturday night covered by a carpet in a
hangar at the North Texas ranch. Each had been shot twice in the head.
The body of Ronald Mayes, a former Sherman police officer who worked
at a meat-packing plant, had been dragged almost nine feet and was lying in
a pool of blood against a side door, authorities said. lie had been shot five
Relatives said a colorful, one-seat ultralight airplane - marked
Prominently with Tate's initials - was missing from the hangar. They told
authorities that three of the men had gone to the hangar to meet another man
who was interested in buying a plane.
Feminist to be tried for murder
GRETNA, La. - California feminist Ginny Foat yesterday made a move
from anonymity to political prominence with the beginning of her trial on
charges of murdering an Argentine businessman 18 years ago.
Foat, who took a leave of absence as president of the California chapter of
the National Organization for Women to fight the murder charge, must con-
front her primary accuser, former husband John Sidote, and her own bizarre
Prosecutors will try to prove Foat lured Argentine businessman Moises
Chayo to a deserted location and killed him with a tire iron when he resisted

being robbed by Sidote.
The prosecution's depending on the testimony of her former husband, a
convict who has confessed to three homicides.
District Attorney John Mamoulides said the husband is a creditable wit-
ness, despite his history of violence and alcholism, because his story was
clearly against his own interest.
