Charging that some politicians. like some weather forecasters "take the easy way out," Dan Maguire, GOP candidate for state representative from the 142nd district, said here Friday, "I cannot operate that way." Maguire, a retired meteorologist and tv weather caster, speaking at a meeting of the Optimist Club at the Colonial Hotel, said, "I hope my efforts in forecasting and presenting the weather report hare been useful to you at some time. Judging from the greetings and comments that I get as I go door-to-door in my campaign I know my reporting his been well received. "Some weather forecasters take the easy way out just call for the worst if it happens he is safe, if it doesn't, who cares?" "In politics," Maguire continued, "some with whom we trust our decisions take the ealy way too just go along with the governor or the lobbyst who promises the most campaign money or other favor. 1 cannot operate that way." Maguire said, "they got me started when I heard our sentatives had voted themselves a $7600 pension for a ew terms at age, 55 way more than most of us get after contributing to our retirement all our working lives."

It was creation of a military regime that provoked the outbreak of the civil war last week. Hussein declared his forces had observed the cease-fire "despite endless provocations" and urged the guerrillas to. slam the door shut forever on dissention and The Jordanian army has been standing still around Ramtha and Irbid, 50 miles north of Amman, for the past, three days, the king said. The situation in Amman was calm, he added, "except for scattered incidents where the armed forces were attacked." He charged that a number of guerrilla groups were opposed to the cease-fire and were trying to sabotage it. The charge that Jordan had broken the cease agreement was made by Egyptian President'Gamal Abdel Nasser in a cable sent to Hussein and broadcast over Amman radio.

The curfew which had been in effect in Amman for more than a week was lifted for five hours daily, Radio Amman said. The Al Fatah guerrilla organization in Beirut said the ceasefire was shattered early today by a battle at Zarqa, 15 miles northeast of Amman. No mention of the incident was made in broadcasts over the government's radio station.

The guerrilla spokesman said the fighting started when an army unit tried to break into a Palestinian refugee camp. The guerrillas retaliated with an intensive mortar bombardment of army positions around the town, he said. The government forces withdrew, leaving a large number of dead and wounded, the guerrilla spokesman said. Nasser charged that "a horrible massacre" was going on in Jordan "in violation of all Arab and human values." The cable, drafted at a meeting attended by Palestinian guerrilla leader Yasir Arofat, said Jordanian assurances that Hussein's commanders. would observe the a e-fire were "completely broken and devoid of any real validity."

mission in Jordan that there was "a determination on the part of Jordanian authorities to continue the fighting despite all attempts to halt the bloodshed." The message appeared to place Nasser and the other Arab leaders squarely behind the Palestinians. Earlier, Libya's strongman, Col. Muammar Kadafi, proposed an Arab police force to supervise the truce in Jordan. Libya then severed with Hussein's government. The Egyptian Middle East News Agency reported that Kadafi suggested the.

force be formed of forces from his own country and neighboring Algeria. In addition to representatives from Egypt, Sudan and Libya, the summit meeting was attended by leaders of Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Kuwait, Lebanon, Yemen and South Yemen. Leaders of Morocco, Algeria and Jordan were not present. Israeli sources estimated that about 20,000 persons were 1 killed during the nine days of fighting in Jordan, including some 10,000 combatants on both sides and about 10,000 civilians. The sources said about 30,000 were wounded.

The figures were obtained through various channels, the sources said. In other developments: -Arab guerrillas today staged their first attack on an Israeli settlement since the start of the Jordanian war. The Israeli military command said- a rocket was fired from Lebanon at Ramot Naftali in the Upper Galilee, but caused no casualties. -Israel accused Egypt of continuing to build antiaircraft missile sites near the Suez Canal in "grave violation" of the Middle East cease-fire. -The Israeli chief of staff, Lt.

The valley fire swept through the Spahn movie ranch, onetime residence of Charles Manson who is on trial with three of his hippie-style clan members in the slayings of actress Sharon Tate and six others. Firemen said the flames damaged several of the abandoned movie-set buildings, where some of Manson's members still live. Firemen said flames destroyed several outdoor sets at the 20th Century-Fox movie ranch in Malibu Canyon.

A ranch guard said the destruction included sets for "Tora! Tora!" a $21 million epic which premiered this week.

Colony North, a subdivision dotted with palm trees and homes in the $75,000 and up range, was among the hardest hit areas in the Valley. Residents on rooftops used garden hoses to douse their homes. One of them, sales manager Joe Muraski, said, "I stayed sprinkling as long as I could, but finally my eyebrows got singed and I had to run. We were completely wiped out.

We lived in it one year. I estimate my loss at $70,000." Chuck Holden was helping four women try to save their homes. "There were the five of us, all trying to wet down these houses.

A top Department official says enish the United States will replJordan lost in its war with Paarms and ammunition lestinian guerrillas and Syrians. The Hussein's aim is to make sure King army has "a continuing military capability," Deputy Secretary of Defense David Packard told newsmen Friday.

But the United States never planned to use its military power directly to prop up King Hussein's regime, Packard said. The possibility of U.S. intervention had been the topic of wide discussion in the administration earlier. Packard assessed the Jordanian fighting in a breakfast meeting with a few reporters, I including those from the Washington Post and the Evening Star, who detailed what took place. "Though there is lots of speculation about why the Syrians pulled out, in my judgment one, of the most important reasons was the Jordanian's army's ability to give them a rough time." The success of Hussein's forces without direct U.S.

intervention showed the value of providing good military equipment and training to friendly nations, he said. The Jordanian army has been equipped largely with Americ a n-made a and British made tanks and airplanes. The amount and type of military aid Jordan might need has not been assessed, he said. Packard said resupplying Jordan would not upset the balance between Israel and Arab powers. He held out the possibility Israel would welcome a stable situation in Jordan.

He said the United States is greatly troubled by the Soviet Union's buildup of naval power in the Mediterranean and the movement of Soviet antiaircraft missiles in the Suez Canal zone, If Russia's naval construction program continues at the same pace, he said, "four to. five years from now would find it difficult to put a carrier in the Mediterranean and protect While Packard announced U.S. intentions to aid the Jordanian Army, White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said the situation there "seems to be improving." Ziegler said the tration views rescue of 15 of the 54 plane hijack hostages as "welcome step" but added it is deeply concerned over the remaining The State Department, meantime, said the United States will provide relief to Jordan, mainly in the form of foodstuffs. Hussein personally made the appeal for relief to U.S.

Delivery of the foodstuffs is expected within a few days, the department said. Agnew Front Front Page In his attack permissiveness, Agnew said, "A permissive parent sees his child come to the dinner table wearing dirty clothes, his hands unwashed and his hair unkempt" and then reads the book by Dr.

Benjamin Spock, "our foremost authority on children," telling him to avoid "bossiness." "Who do you suppose is to blame when, 10' years later, that child comes home from college and sits down at the table with dirty, bare feet and a disorderly faceful of hair?" the Vice President asked. Calling for discipline as "a necessary precursor of self-dis- his cipline, Agnew defined campaign mission this way: "Specifically, to help- elect men to public office who will lean hard against the trend toward permissiveness, and who understand terrible consequences in terms of disruption and violence. "More generally, my mission is to awaken Americans to the need for sensible authority, to jolt good minds out of the lethargy of habitual acquiescence, to mobilize a silent majority that cherishes the right values but has been bulldozed for years into thinking those values are embarrassingly out of style." Agnew drew a laugh when he said "occasionally I use colorful language" but he noted "a call to intellectual combat cannot be issued by a flute, it needs trumpet."
