Minister Yitzhak Rabin said
yesterday that Israel would back
up its Lebanese militia allies with
gunships and tanks to halt a
surge of guerilla attacks in south
He also suggested that Israel
may increase the estimated 1,000
troops it keeps in south Lebanon,
but declined to elaborate.
RABIN told reporters the
Israeli assistance was meant "to
absolutely break these attacks by
inflicting large casualties" on
y. Shiite Moslem guerrillas.
A senior military officer,
demanding anonymity, said
Israel would deploy troops to
reinforce the South Lebanon
Army militia on a case-by-case
basis, but did not intend to send in
a big force.
THE LATEST rocket attack
Saturday wounded three Israeli
soldiers, the Israeli military
command said. The attack
occurred in the Israeli-occupied
buffer zone of south Lebanon,
which stretches six to 10 miles
deep along the border and is
meant to prevent guerrillas from
attacking Israel itself.

UN speech to focus on
U. S., Soviet relations
UNITED NATIONS - President Reagan will focus today on
superpower relations, including arms control and the Daniloff
case, when he addresses the United Nations for the fifth time.
With U.S.-Soviet relations strained by the espionage charges
against American journalist, Nicholas Daniloff, Reagan will "pt:
considerable emphasis on human rights,. and he will underscore the
(Daniloff) case... with what I would emphasize is straight talk on
the matter," presidential spokesman Larry Speakes told reporters.
Daniloff was arrested in Moscow on Aug. 30. He spent thirteen
days in prison before being released into the custody of the U.S.
Embassy and is not freee to leave the Soviet Union.
Last week, administration officials in Washington disclosed
that Reagan had proposed significant reduction of the number of
nuclear missiles in Europe, a subject that will be addressed during

AIDS hits Mich. student
LANSING - Michigan's first case of a student with the deadly
disease AIDS has been confirmed in the Clinton County district of
St. John's, but the boy is too ill to attend school, officials say. Earl
Gabriel, superintendent of the district located about 20 miles north o
Lansing, said the case was reported Wednesday, but information
that would identify the student will be kept confidential at the
The district's school board will begin considering an AIDS
policy during a scheduled meeting tonight, said Gary Whitford,
The State Education Board guidelines say students with AIDS
should generally be allowed to attend classes because the virus
carries little risk of being transmitted through casual contact.
However, the board advised districts to set up a panel to weigh
decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Summit plans face obstacles
WASHINGTON - Secretary of State George Schultz continued
yesterday to press the Soviet Union to let American journalist
Nicholas Daniloff leave Moscow, saying a superpower summit was
"most unlikely" until the case is resolved.
Meanwhile, members of congress supported the Reagan
administration's position to hold a firm line with the Soviets until
Daniloff is freed.
"I think it is most unlikely that you could have a fruitful meeting
in the conditions that we have today," Schultz said on ABC's "This
Week with David Brinkley," reiterating remarks he made
Saturday evening after he concluded two days of talks with Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze.
Schultz said the Soviet spy charges against Daniloff were a
stumbling block, and Shevardnadze cited the American expulsion
of 25 persons from the Soviet U.N. mission as an obstacle.
