Carter goes over

From APandUPI
President Carter won enough dele-

Democratic nomination, but Sen. Ed-
ward Kennedy, seeking to embarrass
him on the final day of the primary
season, won in New Jersey and Rhode
Island and was leading in South

nomination. Carter entered the biggest

delegates shy of victory and bythe time

Kennedy looked for election evidence

and CBS all projected a Carter victory
in Ohio.
In New Jersey, with 59 per cent
tallied, Kennedy was gaining 55 per

HEBRON, Occupied West Bank (AP)-Israeli
troops using crowbars and bolt-cutters forced Arab
shopkeepers to open their stores yesterday and end a
strike protesting car-bomb attacks on two West Bank
mayors. Extremist Jewish settlers said the maiming
of the Palestinian mayors was not revenge enough for
six slain Hebron settlers.
Israeli troops on roads and rooftops protected gun-
carrying Israelis from Hebron's Jewish suburb,
Kiryat Arba, as they gathered in the center of this
Arab city for a traditional memorial service a month
after Palestinian gunmen killed six settlers and
wounded 16 others.
THE CEREMONY TOOK place one day after
unidentified terrorists placed car-bombs that crip-
pled two leading West Bank mayors. The mourners
were united in saying the bombings were only "half
payment" for the May 2 ambush here.
West Bank Arabs, shocked at Monday's bombings,

joined a general strike that closed most town halls
and shops until Israeli troops forced many businesses
to open.
At one shop, the souvenir store of Bethlehem Mayor
Elias Freij, troops used a metal-cutting torch to
break the locks on the shutters.
any findings in their investigation. Tel Aviv
newspapers reported receiving telephoned claims of
responsibility for the bombings but the groups-the
Sons of Zion and the Anti-Terror Unit-had never
been heard of before.
Extremist settlers were the focus of most
suspicions. Yossi Dayan of the rightist Kach
movement stated his desire for vengeance for the
Hebron ambush a month ago. "What you saw yester-
day (Monday) was just the beginning," Dayan said
beside the grave of American-born Eli Hazeev, one of
the six dead settlers.
