Israelis push to Beirut
Israel's triumphant invasion army,
at the doorstep of Beirut, hammered
Palestinian and Syrian positions relen-
tlessly yesterday from the air, sea and
land, and threatened to storm the
panic-torn Lebanese capital.
The Palestinian guerrillas promised
a fight to the death.

President Reagan a bill making it a
crime punishable by imprisonment to
disclose the names of covert U.S. in-
telligence agents-even if that infor-
mation is derived from public records.

cluding journalists or scholars who
identify agents as part of a "pattern of
activities" which would "impair or im-

and fined $15,000.
BURT HOFFMAN, a spokesman for
Levin, said the senator voted for the bill
because he was concerned that the
disclosure of agents' names could en-
danger their lives. Supporters of the bill
have said that publication of many
agents' names has led to their
assassinations in recent years.
Hoffman said the effect of the bill on
