Israelis land in
Lebanon after
a day of raids

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Israeli
troops landed from the sea late last
night at Jiyeh near Damour and staged
a three-hour assault, after a day of
Israeli air raids in southern Lebanon
and retaliatory rocket barrages, the
Palestinian guerrilla command and
Lebanon state radio reported.
Communiques issued by the
Palestinian command said guerrillas
repulsed the attack at the
Mediterranean town 12 miles south of
Beirut with heavy artillery and rocket
fire. The Palestinian news agency
WAFA said few Israeli soldiers
managed to reach shore and that the at-
tack ended around 2:3'0 a.m. (8:30 p.m.
EDT) yesterday.
destroyers, a submarine, eight gun-
boats and helicopters were involved in
the landing.
WAFA said three civilians were
killed when the car they were riding in
on the Damour highway was hit by
Israeli gunfire. It said another civilian
car was hit but its occupants were unin-
jured. -
Israeli casualties were unknown, the
news agency said.
The Palestinians said the Israelis
landed at 11:45 p.m., a little more than
an hour before the 8 p.m. EDT deadline
set by the U.N. Security Council for en-
ding the Palestinian-Israeli hostilities
in southern Lebanon. At U.N.
headquarters in New York, Secretary-
General Kurt Waldheim told the council
last night that the cease-fire had not
come about.
Earlier, Israeli fighter-bombers
struck southern Lebanon and
Palestinian guerrillas loosed a barrage
of rockets on northern Israel in
retaliation, witnesses and the Israeli
military.command said.
Meanwhile, the Reagan ad-

.-. no cease fire yet
ministration called a halt yesterday to
personal, criticism of Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin for his
nation's military strikes into Lebanon.
THE CAREFUL positions spelled out
by chief spokesmen at the State Depar-
tment and Pentagon clearly were
calculated to soften recent remarks by
Secretary of Defense Caspar Wein-
berger and Deputy Secretary of State
William Clark.
State Department spokesman Dean
Fischer said the-administration "ab-
solutely" does not consider Begin an
obstacle to peace, and denied there is a
crisis of confidence in the Reagan ad-
ministration over Begin's leadership.
"We feel they (the Israelis) are as
committed to a cessation of hostilities
and violence as are we," Fischer told

Hot time
I T HAS BEEN said that only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the
noonday sun. But when members of the British Royal Welch Fusiliers
arrived at Fort Chaffee, Ark., for maneuvers with the Arkansas National
Guard, the sun came as a bit of a shock. It was 55 degrees and rainy when the
Fusiliers left Wales to come to Fort Chaffee for two weeks of training. They
were greeted with high humidity and temperatures close to 100. "If we get
beat in a war, it won't be the Russians, it will be the bloody heat," Fusilier
Peter Edwards said. About 150 members of the Royal Welch Fusiliers have
joined the Second Battalion of the 153rd Infantry, 39th Brigade of the
National Guard in training exercises at Fort Chaffee. Q
Flying high
The first night flights and a daredevil walk on a balloon are among new
twists being readied for the U.S. Hot Air Balloon Championship, to be held in
Indianola, Iowa. "It's like a regular madhouse around here," said Karyn
Ford of Indianola Balloons Inc., organizer of the event. "It really gets
very, very busy." The week-long championship begins today with pleasure
flights, and competitions start tomorrow. Plans call for night flights, a
demonstration in which a balloonist will walk across the top of a balloon, ball
games, worship services, dancing, and banquets. "There are lots of special
things that are going on," Ms. Ford said of the competition, which draws
balloonists from all over the United States and from many foreign
