So at:! Israel'i'
raid as shaken
CAIRO, Egypt (AP)-Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat said yesterday
that Israel's attack on an Iraqi nuclear
reactor gave the Soviet Union and its
Arab allies "a blank check to fill with
accusations and lies." He said it had
"shakeqi the peace process but not
In an exchange of cables that ap-
parently took place before the raid,
Sadat and President Reagan agreed
that despite recent setbacks, peace ef-
forts in the Middle East must continue
in order to avert the threat of Soviet in-
tervention in the area. The cable texts
were published in Arabic yesterday by
the official Middle East News Agency.
ACCORDING TO the texts, Resgan
said the Syrian-Israeli dispute over
Syria's missiles in Lebanon could "lead
to an escalation of Soviet presence in
the Middle East via Syria."
In his reply, Sadat said: "I asked Mr.
Begin in our Sinai meeting (before the
raid) to give ample time to American
diplomacy to solve the crisis over
Lebanon," the agency reported.
The Egyptian president told Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin that
"the outbreak of war at such a critical
time will destroy the peace process and
pave the way for communist interven-
MEANWHILE, the Soviet Union,
demanding U.N. sanctions against
Israel, suggested yesterday that the
United States must have known
beforehand about Israeli plans to bomb
Iraq's nuclear reactor.
U.S. officials have insisted the Reagan
administration did not learn about the
June 7 Israeli air strike until afterward.

of a U.N. Security Council debate on the
raid, said that despite the United
States' statements to the contrary, "it's
difficult to imagine that it did not know
in advance" about the attack.
U.S. ENVOY Philip Habib flew to
Syria from Saudi Arabia yesterday, of-
ficials in Damascus said, one day after
Begin renewed his threat to wipe out
Syrian missile batteries in Lebanon.
Sources said Habib would consult
with U.S. Ambassador Talcott Seelye
and might meet with President Hafez
Assad today. It was his fourth trip to
Syr in his mediation effort.
Begin told'supporters at a campaign
rally that Israel would knock out the
Soviet-made missiles if U.S. diplomatic
efforts failed to get Syria to withdraw
them from Lebanon's Bekaa Valley. He
said he would tell Habib when he
arrives in Israel later this week. "If
you're not moving them, then we will."
In Washington, State Department
spokesman David Passage, asked
about Begin's threat to strike at the
Syrian missiles in Lebanon, said: "We
are working without deadlines. We are
working toward objectives."

Judge orders man questioned
in slayings to split suit
ATLANTA - A federal judge yesterday directed a man questioned in the
slayings of 28 young blacks to divide his suit against law enforcement agen-
cies and news organizations into two distinct complaints charging the two
he man's lawyer, Mary Welcome, told U.S. District Judge Orinda
Evans that her client "has been tried and is being tried" in connection with
the slayings. If the hearing on his petition for a preliminary injunction to halt
the "blitzkrieg of media harassment" were open to the public, information
previously published and broadcast would surface again, she argued.
She worried that if her client were brought to trial, jurors would be
unable to erase information that was "repeated so many times."
David- bailey, a lawyer for Cox Enterprises which owns Atlanta's two
major daily newspapers, said the petition amounted to a request for a "gag"
Dissidents charged with
overthrow of Polish state
WARSAW, Poland - Four anti-Communist dissidents freed from jail
because of protest hunger strikes appeared in a packed Warsaw Provincial
Court yesterday on charges they plotted the violent overthrow of the Polish
The seven-count indictment was read and the trial was recessed until
Tuesday. Prosecutors did not ask that a formal plea be entered but the
defendants have previously claimedihey are innocent.
The leader of Confederation of Independent Poland, known by the
initials of its Polish name, KPN, vowed to fight the charges, which carry a
penalty of from five years in prison to death.
Leszek Moczulski, 51, and the three other KPN members were freed
from a Warsaw prison June 5 after a hunger strike in their behalf by mem-
bers of the Solidarity independent labor union. The release was attacked by
the Soviet Union as an example of the Polish government's alleged weakness
in the face of "counter-revolutionary" elements.
The courtroom was open to the public, and about 140 people, including an
elderly man dressed ina concentration camp prison suit filled it.
'Berserk weather' continues
to ravage Plains states
MINNEAPOLIS - Devastating winds and more than a foot of rain
staged another assault into the battered Plains yesterday after a weekend of
berserk weather that killed at least 20 people, left thousands homeless and
wrecked millions of dollars worth of property.
Rescue teams and cleanup crews from Minnesota to Texas went to work
-plucking out neighbors stranded by floodwaters and clearing- *bris splin-
tered by tornadoes.
Authorities in Texas pulled more bodies out of swollen rivers yesterday
and states of emergency were declared in Kansas and Ohio as surging rivers
and creeks went over their banks and roared into homes.
Taiwan issue reportedly
snagging U.S.-Chinese talks
PEKING - Secretary of State Alexander Haig discussed U.S.-Chinese
relations with China's leaders yesterday and there were indications the talks
were not going as well as earlier sessions did.
U.S. officials, who declared Sunday that there was near unanimity of
views on international issues, offered a much more subdued public charac-
terization of yesterday's discussions on bilateral matters.
Both sides, apparently by agreement, said little about the second day's
talks, which dealt with the most troublesome issue between the two coun-
tries, the U.S. relationship with Taiwan.
Workers shut plant to protest
cut of cost-of-living benefits
BELVIDERE, Ill. - Workers shut Chrysler Corp.'s only assembly plant
for its popular Omni-Horizon subcompacts yesterday to protest the
elimination of cost-of-living benefits accepted by the union when the
automaker appeared near collapse.
"Excessive absenteeism" by Chrysler Corp. workers protesting the loss
of an $800 cost-of-living benefit forced the cancellation of production on
today's first shift, company officials said.
The job action was the first against Chrysler in at least two years, when
the United Auto Workers tacitly agreed to refrain from striking the com-
pany's plants so the automaker could recover from financial difficulties.
The production run at the Omni and Horizon plant was canceled at 7
a.m., a half-hour after the usual starting time, said William A. Prokopy,
plant personnel manager. He would not d close how many of the shift's ap-
proximately 2,100 workers failed to show up. The plant employs about 4,300
