128 killed in
Israel's fiercest

raids on
By the Associated Press
Israeli fighter-bombers ravaged west
Beirut in the war's fiercest air raids
yesterday before President Reagan
angrily intervened and won a new
cease-fire aimed at getting Lebanon to
resume talks on the evacuation of
Palestinian guerrillas.
Lebanon suspended the negotiations
to protest the air strikes that police said
left at least 128 dead, 400 wounded and
dozens more feared buried in rubble.
The raids lasted 10 hours. Israel's
warplanes also struck at Syrian
positions in eastern Lebanon's Bekaa
AFTER A stormy session with his
Cabinet and a telephone call from an
"outraged" Reagan, Israeli Prime
Minsiter Menachem Begin annonced he
had halted the bombing raids. An
Israeli statement said Reagan "ex-
pressed his gratitude" and ended the
conversatin with teh words "Mednah-
cem, Shalom."
the U.N. Security Council
unanimously adopted a resolution
yesterday calling for strict observance
of a cease-fire by "Israel and all parties
to the conflict." The 15-member coun-
cil also demanded Israeli cooperation
in allowing the deployment of United
Nations observers in Beirut.
In Washington, State Department
spokesman Alan Romberg said the
talks on evacuation of the Palestine
Liberation Organization from Lebanon
"have not been terminated" but were
halted because "the Lebanese had
made it clear they could not see other
people" during the bombardment.
ISRAELI radio and television repor-
ted that Cabinet ministers were almost
unanimous in chastising Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon for ordering the
bombing. The broadcasts said Begin

and the ministers acused Sharon of hin-
dering peace efforts, damaging Israel's
image abroad and acting without
Cabinet approval. Israel Radio said
future air raids on Beirut would require
prior government approval.
Sharon was quoted as saying the
welfare of Israeli soldiers under
guerrilla gunfire "must be weighed
against the messages and threats of the
United States." He reportedly said he
supported the U.S. proposal for
evacuating the Palestinians from
Lebanon but added, "if we do have to go
into Beirut, we need to make suitable
TheLebanese government had urged
Reagan and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia
to intervene to halt the bloodshed.

phoned Begin to express "his outrage
over this latest round of massive
military action," White House deputy
press secretary Larry Speakes said. He
refused to say whether Reagan
threatened to apply sanctions if the
raids continued.
But Israel Radio said the United
States warned it would abandon the
talks if the attacks continued and that
Begin's government decided to stop the
strikes to keep the negotiations alive.
The broadcast also said Begin ordered
that Israeli troops make no further ad-
vances into west Beirut.
The jet strikes began at dawn and
stopped after Israel declared a cease-
fire in effect at 5 p.m. (11 a.m. EDT).
But it said the cease-fire "depends on
mutuality" and tank fire continued
sporadically near the museum crossing
point of the Green Line dividing Beirut
into Moslem west and Christian east

intellectualism comes to the Ozarks
THE UNIVERSITY of Arkansas - and the entire staff of Arkansas-
is currently trying to spruce up its reputation as a great center of lear-
ning. After being described in the controversial New York Times Guide to
Colleges as an "intellectual desert," the university decided to fight back.
The college, best known for its Razorback football team, rather than its
educational exploits, has created a plan to make its college of arts and scien-
ces one of the best in the country. Turning the university into an intellectual
mecca will prove an uphill task, but a group of intellectual bigwigs - in-
cluding John Kenneth Galbraith and farmer Sen. J. William Fulbright -
thought enough of the plan to journey recently to Arkansas. The university
also hopes to attract state millionaires to donate $30 million for an institute
of international relations at the Ozark Mountain learning center. o

House votes to block
wilderness area driling

WASHINGTON (AP)- In a slap at
the pro-development views of Interior
Secretary James Watt, the House voted
overwhelmingly yesterday to ban oil
and natural gas drilling in federally
protected wilderness areas.
The bill covers some 34.4 million
-acres, mostly in the West. It would
prohibit Watt from approving any of the
estimated 1,000 pending applications
from oil companies seeking drilling
rights to about 3 million acres of
wilderness preserves.
THE BILL, passed 340-58, now goes to
the Republican-controlled Senate
where its fate is uncertain. Watt has
substantial support on the Senate
Energy and Natural Resources Com-
mittee, which has jurisdiction over the
Rep. Morris Udall (D-Ariz.), chair-
man of the House Interior Committee,
said he hoped the wide margin of the
:House vote would be sufficientt to per-
suade the Reagan administration to

keep oil rigs out of the wilderness, even
if the measure does not become law.
He said the vote sends "a very strong
signal" to Watt and the administration
about public support for protecting
wilderness areas.
ENVIRONMENTAL groups praised
the House action.
Charles ,Clusen of the Wilderness
Society called it "the most important
conservation vote of the 97th Congress"
and "a clear repudiation of James
Watt's development-at-any-cost
"The message couldn't be clearer,
and I hope James Watt takes notice,"
said Jay Hair, executive vice president
of the National Wildlife Federation.
"The American people do not want
their wilderness areas ravaged by
haphazard exploitation and develop-
The dispute over wilderness drilling
has been simmering since shortly after
Watt took office lastyear.
