Grenade hits Marine in Beirut

From AP and UPI
BEIRUT, Lebanon - More than 20 people were killed in
fighting in the Northern city of Tripoli yesterday, and a U.S.
Marine in Beirut was wounded while Lebanon's major
warring factions agreed on an agenda for a national peace
Marine spokesman Maj. Robert Jordan said a grenade was
hurled from a car at a U.S. Marine guard outside the
American Embassy in West Beirut.
"WE DIDN'T have the chance to respond," Jordan said.
"The Marine was hit by shrapnel in his upper left thigh and
the ankle, and his condition is stable."
The Marine, one of the 1,600-man peacekeeping force, was
not identified.
Four Marines have been killed and wounded in grenade at-
tacks and bombardments on the positions of the U.S.
peacekeepers since Lebanon's latest round of violence began
Aug. 28.
Palestine Liberation Organization chief Yasser Arafat led
his guerrillas into Tripoli yesterday to end three days of
street battles between Moslem and Communist militias that
left 69 dead and 150 wounded.
Witnesses who reported Arafat's entry into Tripoli said it
was preceded by an artillery barrage and a declaration by
Communist gunners and their leftist Lebanese allies that

they would turn back the Moslem onslaught.
The death toll yesterday rose to 69, and a total of 150 were
wounded. Police said some of the leftists were captured and
shot on the spot after the Moslems torched Communist Party
AT LATE afternoon, there was a barrage of artillery fire,
and Communist gunners and those of an allied Lebanese
militia, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, said they were
trying to turn back the Moslems.
Arafat then led PLO guerrillas into key points in Tripoli to
separate the warring militias, and the fighting quieted about
6 p.m.
Also yesterday, officials representing six warring factions
met with a representative of President Amin Gemayel for
seven hours along the green line that divides predominantly
Moslem western Beirut from the Christian east.
"After serious and constructive discussions, full I
agreement was reached on a proposed agenda which will be
forwarded to the national dialogue committee that will meet
Oct. 20," said Gemayel's representative, Khalil Mekkadui.
He called the agreement on an agenda, reached with sur-
prising speed, "a great step toward national reconciliation."
The committee had been expected to take a week to draft an
agenda for full-fledged peace talks.

'U' resister favored in judge's. ruling


(Continued from Page 1)
registration resister were dropped af-
ter the government refused to turn over
subpoenaed documents.
If the government complies with the
subpoena, the judge will review the
papers from the Justice Department,
White House, and Selective Service
Administration to decide whether they
are relevant to the defense claims of
selective prosecution.
LAFFERTY said if the judge decides
the papers are relevant, the defense
will then subpoena Secretary of Defen-
se Caspar Weinberger and Presidential
Counsel Edwin Meese to testify. Meese

refused to testify in the California case.
Rutt's defense is built partially
around the contention that the gover-
nment has pursued a policy of
prosecuting only those non-registrants
who have publicly voiced their op-
position to registration. Rutt, who was
indicted in February, wrote letters both
to President Reagan and the Selective
Service in 1982 explaining why he
refused to register.
The documents being sought include
records of meetings of top White House
staff members and military manpower
LAFFERTY said yesterday's

decision "does not tell us victory is in
hand," but added that if the judge had.
ruled against the request, "we would
have seen the writing on the wall."
RUTT, contacted on campus last
night, said he doesn't think the gover-
nment will withhold the documents
from the judge, " but if the judge orders
the documents over to us, I think (the
government) will at least balk at that."
But he said he was optimistic about

the judge's decision. "This means we
get to go another step and the step is in
our favor," he said.
Leonard Gillman, the federal
prosecutor whose office is handling the
case, said, "We're not sure where we
will go from here," but declined further

who have been indicted for failing to
