Carter, Kenned meet

From The Associated Press
Sen. Edward Kennedy's private
meeting with President Carter yester- -
day did not change his mind about
challenging Carter for the Democratic
presidential nomination. "I have every

conservative to be elected.
"Yes, I thought there was a problem
of Governor Reagan being elected, he
said. "But I can just as firmly say today
that I think Ron Reagan can be elected
president."
ASKED WHAT changed his mind, Ford
cited two things: First, he's shown he's
a pretty good vote-getter in a few
primaries around the country. And the
economic policies of the Carter ad-
ministration are a disaster. They are a
catastrophe and they're going to get
worse.
"We're going to have unemployment
of close to nine per cent, continuing
high inflation, continuing high interest
rates . .. and the blame is right on the
White House under President Carter."
The former president answered
almost all the questions at a joint news
conference with Reagan at Ford's
Palm Springs, Calif., home. When the
two men were asked about their past
differences, Reagan said, "I think we
know each other better now."
FORD, WHO had waited to endorse
Reagan until nearly the end of the
primary season, said he would not con-
sider running as Reagan's vice
presidential candidate.
In Washington, Kennedy was asked
after the White House meeting whether
he had "a prayer" in wresting the
Democratic presidential nomination
from Carter. "More than a prayer," he
replied.
Kennedy refused to discuss what the
president said to him in their Oval Of-
fice meeting, at which no aides were
present.
TO HELP smooth relations between
the two rivals, they appointed Richard
Moe, Vice President Walter Mondale's
chief of staff, and Paul Kirk, Kennedy's
political director, as liaisons.
Kennedy said that he had continued
to press Carter to debate him publicly
but added he doubted such a confron-
tation would occur.
Asked whether he was ready to
release his delegates to the convention,
Kennedy replied, "I'm a candidate for
the nomination and I'm going to press
my candidacy forward and advance my

UNITED NATIONS (AP)-The Security Council
voted 14-0 yesterday to condemn attempts on the lives
of West Bank Arab mayors, and said Israel should
compensate the victims. The United States ab-
stained.
Meanwhile, Israeli troops killed Palestinian
guerrillas yesterday in a thrust into southern
Lebanon on the 13th anniversay of the start of the Six
Day Middle East War. Tension remained high in the
West Bank, site of the assassination attempts against
the mayors this week.
In announcing the Lebanon raid, the military
command said it was aimed at deterring guerrilla at-
tacks on Israel. It said the troops killed a number of
guerrillas.
IN TWO BOMB attacks Monday in the Israeli-
occupied West Bank of the Jordan River, Mayor
Bassam Shakaa of Nablus lost both lelgs and Mayor
Kerim Khalaf of Ramallah lost a foot. Mayor
Ibrahim Tawil of El Bireh escaped injury from a
third bomb, but an Israeli policeman was wounded

severely. No one was apprehended in connection with
the bombings.
After holding his hand up to signal the abstention,
U.S. Ambassador Donald McHenry told, the 15-
member council:
"The resolution contains a number of provisions
which we cannot approve and as a whole it is incom-
plete."
HE DID NOT GO into detail, but the Arab-inspired
resolution spoke in three places of Israeli-occupied
Arab territories, "including Jerusalem."
After McHenry voted for a similarly worded
resolution adopted March 1, President Carter said
that was a mistake because he had wanted all
references to Jerusalem deleted. Cyrus Vance, then
secretary of state, took responsibility for a break-
down in communications with McHenry.
Voting for the resolution yesterday were China, the
Soviet Union, Britain, France, Portugal, Norway,
Tunisia, East Germany, Niger, Zambia, Bangladesh,
