Hussein affirmed his commitment to
peace in the Middle East yesterday, but
said he and President Carter have "dif-
ferences in terms of outlook regarding
the route that we take."
The president publicly acknowledged
the split. In fact, he said "There are
doubts about the prospects for peace."
privately did not expect the king's first-
U.S. visit in more than three years to
produce a breakthrough. Hussein
probably will leave with a promise of
more top-flight American tanks and
continuing skepticism about Carter's
Chief among the differences between
Hussein and Carter is the Camp David

Hussein has aligned himself with
most of the Arab world and the
Palestine Liberation' Organization in'
condemning the U.S. strategy toward
achieving peace. But his reputation asa
moderate encourages officials in the
State Department to believe he will join
eventually in seeking an overall set-
tlement with Israel.
IN THEIR first discussion session,
Carter, Hussein and their principal ad-
visers -met for about two hours. Jody
Powell, the White House press
secretary, described the meeting as

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Ur-
ban guerrillas in the Afghan capital of
Kabulfare assassinating an average of
10 members of the ruling party a day,
according to Western diplomatic repor-
ts received here yesterday.
The sources of the reports, fearing
possible reprisals by the Soviet-backed,
regime, refused to be identified, and in-
dependent confirmation was not im-
mediately available. '
THE VICTIMS were said to include
both supporters and opponents of
Afghan President Babrak Karmal, who
was installed after the first of an
estimated 85,000 Soviet troops were
sent to Afghanistan late last December.
Most of the assassination victims
were described as low-ranking party
members and officials.
Underground leaflets, known as
"Shabnama" or "night letters," earlier
warned of reprisals against Kabul
residents supporting the country's
Marxist government. The leaflets said
Karmal's Marxist regime, the third in
little more than two years, survives
only because of support provided by
Soviet troops sent to help quash the
rebellion by Moslem rebels.
THE DIPLOMATIC reports reaching
here appeared to corroborate accounts
of similar attacks on party officials in
at least two important provincial
capitals - Kandahar, 285 miles south-
west of Kabul, and Jalalabad, 75 miles
east of the capital.
Afghans arriving in Pakistan from
the two cities said insurgents have
killed not only party members, but also
members of their families who had no
other connection to the ruling party.
In Jalalabad, some party members
were reported to have moved their
wives and, children to tents near the,
local army headquarters because they
feared rebel attacks.
THE ELDER brother of Information
Minister Abdul Majid Sarboland, a
middle-aged landowner who steered
clear of politics, was gunned down by
unknown anti-government elements in
Kandahar early this month, according
to a resident of that city who arrived
The Western diplomatic reports also
said the number of Soviet military con-
voys reaching Kabul had declined in the
last 10 days, even though Russian air .
traffic remained heavy, and that rebe'

the town of Jagatu, about 80 miles
southwest of the capital, during the past
In diplomatic jargon, "very frank" is
a way of saying they disagreed sharply.
U.S. officials, confirming this
assessment, weie quick to point out,
however, that Carter considers Hussein
to be on the side of peace in the Middle
"THE DISCUSSION served to clear
the air," said one official, who asked
not to be identified.
Powell said "There was no evidence
of strain in the conversation at all."
The arrival ceremonies for Hussein
were held on the South lawn of the
White House on a perfect spring day.
Birds chirped in the trees and jets
streaked by. Hussein, speaking in his
characteristic hush, could barely be
His American-born wife, Queen Noor,
and two sons, Princes Abdullah and
Feisel, stood alongside Rosalynn Car-
ter. Hussein reviewed the honor guard.
To provide a homey touch, the
president's granddaughter, Sarah Car
ter, who is one and. one-half, was
brought out to a balcony.
Carter pointed the baby out to the
king as they walked inside after the
ceremony. An elaborate dinner was
scheduled for last night and a second
round of talks today.
