Israeli jets bomb
Palestinian camps
TRIPOLI, Lebanon - Israeli
warplanes raided guerrilla targets
in two Palestinian refugee camps
near Tripoli yesterday, killing at
least 17 people in apparent reprisal
for twin suicide attacks a day
earlier in Israel's security belt in
southern Lebanon.
Yellow bulldozers worked into
the night removing tons of rubble
from several flattened buildings in
a search for more dead.
At least 17 people, both
Palestinian and Lebanese, were
killed and 40 wounded in the
simultaneous air strikes and were
taken to hospitals in embattled
Tripoli, 42 miles north of Beirut,
and two nearby mountain villages,
police said.
Paralyzed woman
sues for $1 million
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A
woman left partially paralyzed af-
ter a near collision between an
airliner and a private plane over
Lake Michigan last month has filed
a $1 million lawsuit against
American Airlines Inc. and the
smaller plane's pilot.
Mary Ellen Barwacz, 35, of
Grand Rapids, was among 68
passengers on a June 23 American
Airlines flight from Chicago that
federal aviation officials say came
within 50 feet of hitting a twin-
engine plane about 30 miles south-
west of Kent County International
Airport.
A lawsuit filed yesterday in U.S.
District Court alleges Barwacz
was thrown from her seat to the
ceiling when the pilot put the
jetliner into a sudden, steep dive to
avoid hitting a plane flown by
Michael Meyers of Barrington, Ill.
Reagan chooses navy
man for chief of staff
WASHINGTON - President
Reagan announced yesterday he
will nominate Adm. William J.
Crowe Jr., a former submariner
who now heads the nation's largest

unified military command, to be
the next chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff.
Crowe, a Naval Academy
graduate who holds a Ph.D in
political science from Princeton,
would succeed Army Gen. John W.
Vessey Jr., who will end what
Reagan called "five decades of ex-
traordinary service" with his
retirement Sept. 30.
State court rules in
Red Squad hearing
LANSING, Mich - The State
Police Department was immune
from a suit filed by a man from a
suit filed by a man who claims he
was denied a job by the agency
when his brother's name turned up
in a "Red Squad" file, the
Michigan Court of Appeals ruled
yesterday.
The appeals court said further
hearings are necessary to deter-
mine whether the state police
director himself can be held liable.
And it said the damages awarded
by the Michigan Court of Claims
were excessive.
According to the court, 'Ray
Eugene Will was turned down in
the summer of 1973 for a computer
job with the state police. He was
hired later that year for a similar
position with the transportation
department.
Brushfire ravages
8 California homes
Eight more expensive homes
disintegrated in a ball of fire in
Northern California yesterday in
one of the newest wildfires
ravaging the West.
From the jagged Pacific Coast
and rich redwood forests to
desolate inland deserts, the fires
have blackened more than 1.5
million acres - an area the size of
the state of Delaware - in the
western United States and Canada.
Smoke from the blazes, which
prompted officials in Nevada to
advise residents to curtaildany
strenuous activity, was clearly
visible to weather satellites or-
biting miles above the burning
countryside.
