"Lots of snow this year has definitely

Grossman said.
The Ann Arbor Ski Club and Univer-

up to offer free lessons through the cen-

"I HAD NEVER really skied before,
so I went to one of their free lessons,"

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Reagan meets with Saudi king
WASHINGTON - President Reagan, saying it is time to "turn the page to
a new and happier chapter" in the troubled Middle East, asked King Fahd
yesterday to use Saudi Arabia's "considerable influence and moral suasion"
to bring about direct negotiations between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
But Fahd asserted that it is up to the United States to lend its efforts in
support of the Palestinians and gave no response that indicated Saudi Arabia
might heed Reagan's call for talks with Israel.
The president greeted Fahd, the first major Arab leader to visit Reagan
during his second term, on the South Lawn of the White House before U.S.
Cabinet members, other top officials, and dozens of Saudis attired in the
traditional flowing desert robes.
"The security of Israel and other nations of the region and the legitimate
rights of the Palestinian people can and should be addressed in direct
negotiations," Reagan told the king. "It is time to put this tragedy to rest
and turn the page to a new and happier chapter."
Israeli jets bomb guerila camp
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli jets bombed a Palestinian guerrilla camp in
eastern Lebanon's Bekaa Valley yesterday - the second such attack in 24
hours. Syria said its air defenses fired on the attacking jets.
The Israeli military command in Tel Aviv said the raid was on a camp to
the Abu Moussa group, a Syrian-backed rebel faction that split with Yasser
Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization in 1983. Reporters in the area
said at least four fighters were injured in the latest attack.
The bombing raid, about 28 miles east of Beirut, came a day after guerrilla
attacks in occupied southern Lebanon killed three Israeli soldiers, two of
whom died just north of the border in an area protected by the Israeli-backed
South Lebanon Army militia.
Beirut radio stations said yesterday's bombing raid began at about 11:45
a.m. near the town of Chtaura, on the Beirut-Damascus international high-
way, where the Syrian army force in Lebanon has its headquarters.
A Syrian communique said its air defenses fired on the attacking jets and
forced them to return to the "occupied teritories" - meaning Israel. The
Israeli command reported all its planes returned safely after scoring "ac-
curate hits."
Hanoi to return MIAs' remains
BANGKOK, Thailand - Vietnamese sources said yesterday that it could
take as long as a month to turn over the remains of five people whom Hanoi
has identified as Americans missing in action in the Vietnam War. They
cautioned that U.S. criticism could jeopardize the operation.
"Any hostile statements by the U.S. side could cause a postponement," said
one Vietnamese source here, who spoke on condition that he not be iden-
tified.
Sources said yesterday that Veitnamese officials who deal with MIAs told
U.S. counterparts at a meeting in Hanoi last week that they would hand over
the remains of five Americans. But details were sketchy.
U.S. sources said they were encouraged by the Vietnamese decision to
return the remains.
There are 2,483 Americans listed as missing in action in Southeast Asia,
including 2,441 U.S. servicemen and 42 civilians. All but one have been
declared legally dead for purposes of administration of family benefits.
Tax shelters cost $24 billion
in '84, Nader group reports
WASHINGTON - A Ralph Nader research group said yesterday that tax
shelters cost the federal government $24 billion last year, with 82 percent of
the money going to people with annual incomes higher than $100,000.
The Public Citizen group blamed President Reagan's tax policies for a 33-
percent increase in shelter losses to the treasury since 1981.
The Reagan administration hailed the 1981 across-the-board tax reduction,.
which cut the maximum individual tax rate from 70 percent to 50 percent,
"as a deathblow to shelters," Richard Meyer wrote in a report for Public
Citizen called, "Running for Shelter." He added: "In reality,... the Reagan
tax cut proved an unprecedented bananza for shelters because of its
generous revisions of the depreciation laws."
Meyer's report however, hailed the tax-overhaul plan recommended in
November by Reagan's Treasury Department as an effective way to choke
off some shelters.
S. Korea prepares for elections
SEOUL, South Korea - Voters will deliver their verdict today on the ap-
peal of a new opposition party pressing for democratic reforms, but the elec-
tion is not expected to upset the strong legislative majority of President
Chun Doo-hwan.
The campaign was overshadowed in its last days by the harsh treatment
opposition leader Kim Dae-jung received when he returned from self-exile in
the United States. Kim and the other main opposition leader, Kim Young-
sam, are under house arrest and blacklisted from political activity.
South Korea's 24 million voters will determine the makeup of the 726-
member single-house National Assembly for the next four years. They can
choose between Chun's ruling Democratic Justice Party and the new Korea

Democratic Party formed last month by opponents of the former army
general's government. J
