The debate came after Israel's defense minister said the army had allowed Phalangist militiamen into the camps Thursday night but had not expected a slaughter of civilians. Ariel Sharon told angry legislators the Phalan-gists were to carry out an operation, with limited Israeli .support, against PLO guerrillas believed hiding in the Sabra and Chatilla camps. ' Labor leader Shimon Peres .demanded to know "whose stupid idea" it was to allow Christian gunmen into the camps, home to predominantly Moslem Palestinian and Lebanese refugees, and called for the resignations of Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Sharon. Energy Minister Yitzhak Berman told reporters he had quit his post and would vote against the government today on a Labor Party resolution calling for an official probe of the killings.

Civil defense supervisor Souad Roustram said his workers had recovered another 64 bodies, but Red Cross spokesman Jean-Jacques Kurtz said some of those may be included in his group's count. Estimates of the dead range frim 300 by the U.S. government to 1,400 by the Palestine Liberation Organization. Meanwhile, VS. presidential envoy Philip C. Habib was headed to Beirut to supervise the redeployment of a multinational peacekeeping force, to which Israel agreed under heavy U.S. pressure. The United States also has demanded that Israeli forces withdraw from Beirut. The Lebanese army, which entered west Beirut for the first time in seven years when thousands of PLO guerrillas were evacuated last month, expanded its deployment, taking over parts of the port and the bomb-ravaged commercial center from Israeli forces. Lebanon's state radio said this was part of a five-stage plan for Lebanese troops to take over west Beirut from the Israelis, who moved in following the assassination last week of Presidentelect Bashir Gemayel. Berman told reporters he had quit the energy ministry post to protest Begin 's refusal to set up an inquiry into the slaughter at the camps. The prime minister reportedly thought such a probe would be an admission of Israeli ' complicity. Sharon, who was interrupted several times by shouting deputies and demonstrators in the gallery, told Parliament that gunmen from the Phalange militia once commanded by Gemayel entered the Chatilla camp Thursday night. He said they were told by the Israeli army "the action is against terrorists and must not harm civilians, especially old people, women and children." ' Continued on A-2 mil WASHINGTON (AP) A House committee today speedily approved legislation ordering locomotive engineers to end a strike that officials say is costing the already-battered U.S. economy up to $1 billion a day. Final congressional passage of the joint resolution, which was approved by a voice vote of the Senate Tuesday night, was planned later today, followed by President Reagan's signature. It then would become law immediately. The measure gained voice-vote approval from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich., with only a scattering of voices in dissent. One of the opponents, Rep. James Florio, D-NJ., said he would try on the House floor to substitute the -back-to-work order with a new, 140-day cooling-off period that would permit negotiations to continue. Florio called the imposed settlement "a bad precedent and a real departure from the way government has done business for years." But supporters cited the serious impact the walkout has had on the economy. The strike by 26,000 members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers was in its fourth day today. The walkout has idled another 400,000 railroad workers and Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis told Congress Tuesday that unless it ends, up to 500,000 other people in rail-dependent industries could be laid off within two weeks. Lewis said the strike was costing the battered U.S. economy between $500 million and $1 billion a day. General Motors Corp. has shut down a plant in St. Louis, idling 2,600 workers until the strike is settled, and has cut production at plants in Janesville, Wis., and Wilmington, Del., af- i -. f Drew Lewis fecting 6,100 workers. A GM plant in Baltimore also may have to lay off 2.200 of its 2,400 workers by the end of the week perhaps sooner if the strike is not settled. "We're operating on a kind of day-to-day basis," said Jack Summers, a spokesman at GM's Broen-ing Highway plant in Baltimore. ". . . At the very best we'd be able to work the balance of the week, and I'm not sure we'll make it to the end of this week." Chrysler Corp. Chairman Lee Iacocca sent a telegram to Reagan saying the strike would affect the No. 3 automaker's operations in the United States and Canada if it was not settled by week's end. No problems have been reported at Ford Motor Co. and American Motors Corp. The coal industry also has been feeling the blow. Beth-Elkhorn Coal Corp. closed all mining operations in eastern Kentucky on Tuesday, idling between 500 and 600 workers "until further notice," said Ernest Bentley, the company's superintendent of industrial relations. In West Virginia, Armco Inc. closed eight mines on Monday, iaying off 1,400 employees, but they were called back to work Tuesday afternoon, and the company said it hoped to arrange enough rail transportation to keep the mines open. Sen. Jennings Randolph, D-W.Va., told a Senate committee on Tuesday that in his state, whose coal industry already has been hurt by the recession, an extended strike could be "devastating." He said 68 percent of the state's coal is shipped by rail. In Illinois, the Old Ben Coal Co. laid off about 500 miners in Franklin County in the southern part of the state. Coal mines in Utah were reported operating normally, but no coal was being moved because of the strike. About 120,000 Chicago-area rail commuters have been left to their own devices, and the strike also has affected 19,000 commuters in the Boston area, 8,000 in the San Francisco area and about 1,000 riders who travel regularly by train between Los Angeles and San Diego. Outside Boston, most Northeastern commuters were unaffected because the strike did not affect the federally subsidized Conrail line. Food processors were beginning to feel the pinch and were working to find alternate means of transporting their goods in case the strike lasted. Some trains run by supervisors kept perishables moving through the Midwest, but a prolonged strike could force farmers to store their grain, creating a glut that could depress grain prices for up to six months, said to Lynn Lutgen, an economist at tho University of Nebraska. The engineers struck after talks broke down over pay and a proposed no-strike clause. After a day of testimony by government, union and management officials, the Continued on A-2 Packer Corp. founder Joannes dies at 89 ; Lee Joannes, 89, one of the founders of the Green Bay Packer Corp. who once helped keep the team alive with a loan from his own pocket, died Monday afternoon at his Tucson, Ari&, home. r Joannes, also a prominent Green Bay businessman, served as the fourth president of the Packers for 17 years, 1930 to 1947, the second longest term in club history. He served on the board of directors for 59 years, longer than anyone else. He was made a director emeritus in 1980 and was inducted into the Packer Hall of Fame in February 1981. Joannes was bom here on Oct. 17, 1892, to the late Thomas Joannes and Emma Heath Joannes. After graduation from East High School, he attended the University of Pennsylvania. Joannes owned Joannes Bros, wholesale food company. He entered the busies founded by his father Ind uncles in September 1916. It was sold to Super slue Stores in 1957. He helped organize the Green Bay Football Corp. in 1923, just four years after Curly Lam beau had put the first Packer team on the i Jiiiiiii i i ii iiifttofhriffliwa ii1 1 j Lee Joannes field. Joannes was part of a group, with Dr. W.W. Kelly, Jerry Clifford, A.B. Turnbull and Lam beau, known as the "Hungry Five." They received that nickname for their efforts in raising money for the Packers. In fact, Joannes loaned the Packers $6,000 in 1933 when they faced financial difficulty. He spearheaded a drive that raised $15,000 to pay off past debts and provide enough cash to continue operations in 1935. Joannes succeeded Kelly as president of the Packers on June 13, 1930, and served through the 1947 season. He previously served as the corporation's treasurer. He remained an officer and member of the executive committee until 1959. During Joannes' tenure as president the Packers won national championships in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939 and 1944. "The whole organization is very dear to me," Joannes said of the Packers during a 1981 interview with the Press-Gazette. "I enjoyed what"! did, even though I didn't get any compensation out of it. It grew from nothing." Former Packer president Dominic Olejniczak and attorney Fred Trowbridge Sr. were long-time friends of Joannes. "We were close friends and I worked with him on many community projects, particularly in the area of sports," said Olejniczak. "He was dedicated." Trowbridge was general counsel to the Joannes Bros, company and worked with Joannes as counsel on Packer corporate affairs. "He was a personable and outgoing man," Trowbridge said. "He was there in the early formative years when we were feeling our way more or less." A mass and memorial ser- Continued on A-2 index Cloudy with a chance of showers Thursday. A -17.

Some parents take them seriously for awhile and others dismiss them immediately as malingerers. However, many of those kids are suffering from a real ailment, schoolphobia, according to Dr. Richard Anderson, a psychiatrist at University Hospital and Clinics, Madison. Schoolphobia afflicts up to 5 percent of the elementary and high school population with an array of flu-related symptoms when the time comes to leave for school on fall mornings, but it is little understood by parents or school officials, Anderson said. Schoolphobics unlike truants want to go to school and are usually above average and exceptional students but remain housebound because they are afraid something tragic will happen to their parents in their absence, Anderson said. He said a death or divorce in the family and abuse by fellow students at school can compound the ailment, which begins to affect most children about a month after school begins. "These people are not conscious fakers," Anderson said. 1 -I filijf "Their pain is legitimate. It's not' so much a fear of school, but that something will happen to their loved ones at home if they're not there." Anderson said most of the kids who suffer from schoolphobia have overly possessive parents who had trouble leaving home when they grew up. He said most cases are easily treated by a family doctor assuring the parents their child is healthy and making him go to school. "The key is to have a parent at home when the child gets there so he knows everything is OK," Anderson said. "After about two days he is reassured nothing is going to happen while he is gone and the phobia clears up." In the remaining "chronic" cases, however, Anderson said "the family and school officials help the child get to and remain in school. If he gets sick, the doctor is called to the school. If he is OK, they don't allow him to go home." In one case a stubborn child was picked up in a police car and taken to school when the parents could not get him to go. "You have to show a little force and scare them sometimes," Anderson said. "Once in a while, however, parents undermine the treatment by giving in or failing to be at home when the child gets there. "This reinforces a possessive parent's fear that the child is sick and the doctor is wrong, and gives the kid even stronger control over his parents," Anderson said. Anderson said that in some cases, the parents are so possessive they make the child fear something will happen if they are separated. In one instance, Anderson said, a father became sick to his stomach when it was time for his child to go to school. He said schoolphobia is a serious affliction because it can eventually stifle a child's ability to be social, and become so serious that a child may grow up to become a recluse. House unit backs 1983 funding for Fox River locks By DENNIS CHAPTMAN OfltPrMCaitrtt Money for maintenance and operation of the Fox River locks between De Pere and Oshkosh for the next year was approved Tuesday 'by the House Appropriations Committee. The $2.23 million would ensure operation of the locks through the 1983 fiscal year, from Oct. 1 through the end of September 1983, said VS. Rep. Thomas Petri, R-Fond du Lac, who serves on the committee. A Petri aide said the appropriation would not be a final solution to the locks' operation, but would give committees working with the locks another year to propose a permanent solution. De Peres John Growt, a member of Gov. Lee Dreyfus' task force examining the locks problem, today said the approval means more meaningful solutions can now be considered. "The economy dictates there should be a reduction in services where practical," Growt said. "It's obvious, that user fees have to come into play and a reduction in services. Recreational boat ers are obviously a minority." Volunteer help in operating the locks was also considered after a Reagan administration plan for the Army Corps of Engineers about a year ago suggested closing the locks at a budget-cutting measure. The funds for the locks are a part of the energy and water development ap propriations bill which will be considered by Congress. The Petri aide said he didn't think the bill would have much opposition. Growt agreed. "I was pleasantly surprised it came to this point this quickly," Growt said. "Apparently, this assures congressional approval." The committee's recommendation also pleased the owners of Rivertown Boat Lines Inc., the firm operating the River Queen paddle wheel boat The excursion boat, based in De Pare, uses the locks daily. "Keeping the locks open is a vital part of our operation," said Frank Shea, the firm's vice president "Whatever it takes to keep them Continued on A-l
