IN BRIEF
Lebanon, Israel approve pact
Israel and Lebanon yesterday approved an accord on withdrawal of
Israeli troops from Lebanon and prepared to sign the agreement in twin
ceremonies today. Syria vowed to "do all in its power" to prevent the
agreement from taking effect.
The vote in a closed session of the Lebanese Parliament was 80-0 with 11.
members absent, the Beirut government said. The vote in the Israeli
Knesset was 57-6 with 45 abstentions on the agreement worked out by U.S.
Secretary of State George Shultz.
However, the 25,000 Israelis will not begin withdrawing until the 40,000
Syrian troops and 8,000 to 12,000 Palestinian guerrillas in eastern and nor-
thern Lebanon also leave the country. And Syria reiterated that it would not
pull out of Lebanon.
"Syria will not withdraw from Lebanon for various reasons," Syrian
Foreign Minister Abdel Halim Khaddam said. Some involve Lebanon's own
national unity, and others involve Syria's own security.
Palestine Liberation Organization chairman Yasser Arafat, who Sunday
called for war to stop the Israeli - Lebanese accord, conferred with PLO
leaders in Damascus, Syria, the Kuwait news agancy said.
Court drops civil rights case
WASHINGTON - Avoiding its most hotly contested civil rights case this
term, the Supreme Court said yesterday it will not rule on whether Boston
had to lay off veteran white employees to protect newly hired minority
workers.
Ina brief unsigned opinion, the justices returned the case to a lower court,
saying the issue may no longer be alive legally since the city has reinstated
all police and firefighters who brought the suit.
The high court had faced the delicate question of how to balance seniority
rights against race-conscious hiring to make up for past discrimination
against minorities.
The case attracted widespread attention because it promised to show how
far affirmative action, never popular even in a healthy economy, could be
taken in hard economic times.
In bouncing the dispute back to the lower court, the justices set aside a
ruling requiring Boston, plagued by a fiscal crisis in 1981, to retain black and
Hispanic officers while laying off whites with more seniority.
Factories increase production
WASHINGTON - Cranking up long-idle production lines, U.S. manufac-
turers operated their factories at 71.1 percent of capacity last month, the
highest rate in more than a year, government figures indicated yesterday.
April's gain of 1.3 percentage points over March was the fifth increase in a
row since factory use hita record low of 67.4 percent of capacity in Novem-
ber. The April level was the highest since the 71.1 percent of March 1982.
The earlier figure was recorded as the economy was sinking deeper into
recession. In contrast, the April increase came amid growing agreement
that recovery from the recession is picking up steam.
With production increasing rapidly, employment is also expected to con-
tinue rising - good news for laid off workers.
Factory-use gains in April were widespread "and included sizable advan-
ces among industries that were especially hard hit in the past few years,"
the Federal Reserve Board report said.
The utilization rate for motor vehicle manufacturers edged over 6 percent
for the first time this year, and the rate for the iron and steel industry
reached 54.9 percent of capacity, continuing recent gains for that long-
depressed industry, board economists indicated.
Ex-teacher shoots self after
releasing student hostages
BRENTWOui, N.Y.- A fired teacher's aid who blamed students for
"messing up my career," shot a student and a principal and held student
hostages for 9 hours at a junior high school yesterday before releasing the
pupils and turning the gun on himself, police said.
The gunman, 24-year-old Robert Wickes, shot himself before releasing the
last of 18 hostages. He was "alive but in bad shape," said Suffolk Police
Commissioner Donald Dilworth.
Both shooting victims were taken to Southside Hospital, where the boy was
reported in stable condition and the principal insatisfactory.
Five hours after the shootings, the gunman still held six students in the
room and ordered a message read on a local radio station in which he
threatened to "paint the road with carnage."
Chicago mayor loses case
CHICAGO - In a defeat for Mayor Harold Washington, a circuit judge
ruled yesterday that a bloc of rebel aldermen acted legally when they pushed
through a City Council reorganization plan that virtually shut out the
mayor's allies.
Cook County Circuit Judge James Murray also ruled that Washington's
foes were within the law when they continued to transact city business after
Washington tried to force a quick adjournment of the first council meeting of
his term.
The judge did not impose a settlement in the dispute between the city's fir-
st black mayor and the Old Guard led by Alderman Edward Vrdolyak.
