WASHINGTON <UPI> U.S., Israeli and Egyptian letters made public Friday indicated the euphoric ending of the Camp David summit overshadowed wide divisions on some of the mosl crucial issues in the Middle Easl conflict. But an administration officiai predicted agreement soon on Israel's West Bank settlements — the most serious of two subjects still to lx? taken up by letters accompanying the Camp David "framework for peace." And a potentially far- reaching letter released Friday said Egypt is willing to step in and replace Jordan if King Hussein balks at joining Israel in supervising Palestinian self-rule on the West Bank.

The nine letters, which accompany the peace plan announced last Sunday at the end of the 13-day summit, pointed up wide- divisions on the status of the holy city — considered the toughest issue in dispute. "The government of Israel decreed in July 1967 that Jerusalem is one city indivisible, the capital of the state of Israel," Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin said in his letter on the subject. But Egyptian President Anwar Sadat insisted "Arab Jerusalem is an integral part of the West Bank" and "should be under Arab sovereignty." President Carter reiterated America's refusal to recognize the Jewish state's unilateral annexation of the former Jordanian eastern half of the once-divided city. Israel captured East Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank from Jordan in six days of lightning warfare that also left the Jewish state in control of Syria's Golan Heights as well as Egypt's Sinai Pensinsula and Gaza Strip. In his letter. Sadat said Egypt is prepared to assume the Arab role — "in consultation with Jordan and the Palestinians" — "in order to safeguard the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people." Hussein's government has expressed serious reservations about the Camp David accords, which call for Israel and Jordan to supervise five years of interim self-rule for the 600,000 Palestinians on the West Bank. Begin's letter on the question of Sinai settlements said he would ask the Israeli parliament to vote en the issue within two weeks. But Sadat's letter said Egypt would consider the entire Camp David framework "void and invalid" if Israel "fails to meet this commitment" to abandon the Jewish settlements in Sinai. A letter by Carter acknowledged Begin's reservations about some terms used in the framework for peace to describe the Palestinians and the West Bank. The only letters still to be released concern a freeze on Jewish settlements on the West Bank and a U.S. promise to build two military airfields in Israel's Negev Desert to replace three to be abandoned in the Sinai. At a follow-up briefing, an administration official predicted Israel would come around to accepting the U.S. interpretation of the accords as providing a five-year freeze on West Bank settlements. "We expect to have a common point of view," he said. "I do not anticipate there will be a divergent point of view. I expect we will have a-common understanding."

Shoes 3711 CINTIAl PIAZA, DOWNTOWN OAlVtSTON Birth Given To Sextuplets GUATEMALA CITY (UP1J — A young Indian woman gave birth to sextuplets underneath a bus that made an emergency stop on a rural highway in western Guatemala, hospital officials reported Thursday, The sextuplets — five boys and a girl — were reported in good condition at a Guatemala City hospital. The mother, identified as 22-year-old Quich Indian Maria Ixcoy, was riding in the bus with her husband, Pascual Andres, Ixcoy on a highway 147 miles outside Guatemala City Thursday when labor pains began, she told hospital attendants. The bus pulled alongside the road and she was helped underneath it -- the only spot shaded from the boiling summer sun, said Rosa Valdez, who acted as midwife. The first baby was a boy, followed by three more boys, then a girl and finally a boy, the midwife said. The births continued past sunset Thursday and into the early Friday morning hours. Her husband said the sextuplets were his wife's first children. But he protested when they were taken along with their mother to a hospital, saying he preferred to continue the journey home. "She's very strong," he said. "I want to go back to our hometown." The couple was returning from a season of picking cotton on Guatemala's west coast to El Quiche province, a predominantly Indian-populated region in central Guatemala. The midwife, who was summoned from a nearby farm, said the man paid her with the only money he had — about $5. Guatemala City newspapers said it was the first time sextuplets had been born in the Kentucky- sized Central American nations. It was not immediately known if the woman had taken fertility drugs. Carter Goes Barnstorming ASHEV1LLE, N.C. (UPI) — President Carter went barnstorming through North and South Carolina Friday, praising his own programs while pumping for two Democratic Senate candidates -in uphill races against Republican incumbents. Light rain fell as Carter landed in North Carolina and told an airport crowd about how his administration helped provide Americans with G million new jobs and moved forward in foreign affairs with the Camp David summit and the Panama Canal treaties. Referring to the treaties, Carter said, "Sometime this has been unpopular, even with some of you." But, he said, as a result there is a "new spirit in Latin America." Joking about the summit conference that lasted 13/ days, Carter said he wasn't the only one who wanted to end the talks. "The last day when everything seemed to be going wrong Prime Minister Begin came to me and said 'Mr. President, I promise Israel will get out of the Sinai if you will let me out of Camp David.'" Carter and the crowd laughed together. In Asheville, Carter came to stump for Senate candidate John Ingram at a lavish turn of the century retreat build by the grandson of Commodore Cornelious Vanderbilt. Igram is the state insurance commissioner. Later, he moves to Columbia, S.C., to support senatorial nominee Charles D. Ravenel by attending a fund-raising dinner. Ingram is challenging conservative GOP Sen. Jesse Helms and Ravenel is trying to unseat veteran Sen. Strom Thurmond. Both Democrats are considered underdogs. The Asheville visit, including an airport rally for Rep. Lamar Gudger, was aimed at building up the Democratic campaign chests through the $500-a- person reception at the Biltmore Estate, an 11,000 acre spread. Carter's trip was delayed one week by the Camp David summit talks, the outcome of which has strengthened the president's own political stock. In the afternoon before departing, Carter met with visiting editors and said his series of interviews with out-of-town groups have been "helpful" because the visitors are able to report "in more depth ... and clearer, better than the White House newspeople." He also told the gathering "we've enjoyed the responsibility the American people have given us. We have had a good sound family life. Rosalynn and I have a good partnership." Carter's schedule on Saturday calls for him to fly to Pittsburgh and then participate in a town hall meeting at suburban AHquippa High School. The president then attends a reception for Gene Atkinson, a Democratic congressional candidate, before flying to Columbus, Ohio. After taking part in a dedication ceremony at a plaza, Carter will be priniciple speaker at a Jefferson-Jackson Day fund-raising party at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Earlier in the week, Carter campaigned in New Jersey for Democratic Senate candidate Bill Bradley. Busy deans COLUMBIA, Mo.
