ALGIERS (AP) - PLO leaders
accepted a U.N. resolution yesterday
implicitly recognizing Israel's right to
exist and recommended that the PLO's
parliament endorse the decision.
The move means that Yasser Ara-
fat, chair of the Palestine Li-beration
Organization, has won his struggle
with hard-line leaders over the
controversial U.N. Resolution 242.
If the decision is accepted by the
Palestine National Council, the
PLO's parliament-in-exile, it will
meet one of the conditions for U.S.
recognition of the PLO.
The declaration accepting the
resolution was debated and being
drafted by a committee for presenta-
tion to the plenary session of the
Palestine National Council, which
began a four-day meeting in Algiers
"The PNC will come out with a
political decision and a program of
peace," said PLO spokesperson Ah-
"In the political statement, we will
adopt all resolutions of the U.N.
Security Council dealing with the
Palestinian question. What's more,
we will emphasize resolutions 242
and 338 as the basis for an inter-
national conference to achieve peace
in the Middle East."
Resolution 242 calls for an end to
hostilities and Israeli withdrawal from
territories occupied in the 1967, it
implicitly recognizes Israel by refer-
ring to the right of all states in the
area to live within secure and recog-

In the closed-door committee
meetings among PLO leaders, there
was strong opposition to Resolution
242 from the Marxist-oriented groups,
particularly George Habash's Popular
Front for the Liberation of Palestitie.
Habash's faction is the second-
largest of the eight groups comprising
the PLO. Arafat's is the largest.
Sources close to the talks said that
after two days of haggling, it was
clear no compromise was possible.
Habash agreed to note his reserva-
tions, but bow to the majority, and
not create a major split.
The 450-member Palestinian
council began meeting Saturday and is
expected to conclude on tomorrow
with a declaration of indepence for the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
To date, more than 310 Palestin-
ians and 11 Israelis have been killed
in the 11-month uprising.

LSA seniors Anne Martinez and

At that time, Moody told them he

Moody, who said he will attend
today's meeting, has promised to ac-

fice only takes "an inventory of
things that have happened," and that
it depends on student groups to sup-
