Lebanon--A cease-fire appeared to be taking shaky hold in Beirut Saturday night, though the Beirut radio charged that a Syrian armored column was moving toward the A r k o u b region near the Israeli border. The Beirut radio confirmed that a cease- fire originally announced by the Damascus radio had been agreed to. The Beirut radio said that Syrian troops would be obliged to leave Lebanon within 10 days under the accord. Juan M. Bordaberry Military Disputes Uruguay's President MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP)-The armed forces ordered the removal of President Juan M. Boardaberry on Saturday, military officials reported, and an off i c i a l announcement was to be made shortly. Bordaberry is to be replaced by Vice President Alberto Demichelli. 80. the officials said. They said the action came after Bordaberry refused to resign in a continuing dispute with armed forces leaders. Bordaberry, a wealthy cattleman who came to politics late, was elected president in 1971 at age 43. The armed forces mounted a coup against his civilian government in 1973 but. instead of unseating the conservative president, they designed what was called civil-military administration. Thereafter. Bordaberry "spent most of his presidency compromising with the military leaders who took over his major powers. But Bordaberry was no puppet, his close associates said, and he frequently stood up to the generals on matters of importance. However, he could not shape policy alone or assure protection of human rights. Boardaberry was elected president in a race that was so close there was a 79-day recount. From the start, he had to face a growing, well-organized uprising by the Tupamaros. urban guerrillas who called for a violent overthrow of the economic and social system. *· THE PRESIDENT was a staunch Roman Catholic and family man. the father of nine. He often lashed out at the Tupa- maros as much for their attacks on Christian values as for their armed violence. Diplomats, officials and lawmen were kidnaped and assassinated in a series of terrorist incidents across the tiny republic. At the same time, an economic crisis threatened Uruguay's 2.5 million people. Congress finally gave the military wide powers of arrest and they cracked down on the Tupamaros. The Damascus radio's verions of the cease-fire provisions was considerably less precise, saying that a cessation of hostilities should lead to an "over-all solution." There was no sign of a Syrian pullback in Beirut, though a blockade of the western neighborhoods eased a bit. *· THE BEIRUT RADIO, which is controlled by Moslem leftists and Palestinians, charged that a Syrian armored column was moving toward the Arkoub region. The radio speculated that the Syrians wanted to set up a buffer zone between Israel and the guerrilla movement. Syrian officers were reported to have given an ultimatum to soldiers of the renegade Lebanese Arab Army stationed at Rachaya. near Mount Hermon. The Damascus radio said the garrison had "rallied" to the Syrian-sponsored "vanguards of the Lebanese army," while Beirut maintained that it was still holding out. *· THE CENTRAL COMMAND of Palestinian and Lebanese leftists said fighting continued in mountains overlooking the Christian heartland and at an army base surrounded by Syrians in the south. The p a r t i a l w i t h d r a w a l followed announcement of a cease-fire agreement in Damascus, where Syrian leaders and representatives of the Palestinian and Lebanese leftist alliance have been meeting. Libyan Premier Abdel Salem Jalloud. who mediated the Damascus talks, and guerrilla spokesmen said the pullback is the first step toward an over-all accord between Yasir Arafat of the Palestine Liberation Organization and Syrian President Hafez Assad. But it remained to be seen whether the accord would have any more success than the dozens of failed peace deals that have punctuated the civil war over the past 14 months. The new effort followed agreement by Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo to replace the Syrians in Lebanon with an Arab peacekeeping force to include Libyans, Algerians, Sudanese, Syrians, Saudi Arabians and Palestinians. There was no immediate reaction from Lebanese President Suleiman Franjieh or other right-wing Christian leaders, who have vowed to call in non-Arab foreign troops to fight intervention in Lebanon by anyone except Syria. Syria has made no official statement on the'peace agreement. It was announced by the Middle East News Agency in Cairo, quoting a statement from Fatah - the largest guerrilla group in the umbrella FLO -- and on Damascus radio in a statement by Jalloud. The agreement calls for a two-stage withdrawal over the next 10 days, according to those two sources. First, the Syrians will withdraw from Beirut and Tripoli to the Bekaa Valley in central Lebanon and the Akkar Valley east of Tripoli. Then all 12.500 Syrian troops in Lebanon are to be withdrawn to Syria. (Turn to'Page 12A, Col. 3) -\rtists in Leningrad.

(AP \Virephoto) Ford Airs On Busing WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford spent three hours Saturday listening to the views of 16 community, academic and school board representatives who have been coping with school desegregation problems. Some of the participants said afterward that Ford expressed his concern about "extreme court orders that require massive busing." but they said he gave no hints about his proposed l e g i s l a t i o n to minimize court-ordered busing. What Ford wanted, according to Dale TeKolste. of Omaha, Neb., was to hear "our own experience" with busing. Te- Kolste is chairman of a court-appointed, i n t e r r a c i a l committee that is w o r k i n g toward peaceful desegregation of Omaha schools this fall. An 11-member group of academic and school board representatives, who said they requested the session with Ford, had a two-hour lunch in the White House. A f t - erward they told reporters they had read Ford a statement questioning the value of court-ordered busing. Henry Marcheschi. past president of the · Pasadena. Calif., board of education, said the President's reaction was "he (Ford) would be the first to sign such a statement."

"We don't know what to do or where to go." said one middleaged Chilean, who doctors said had suffered three broken ribs. He and the older viclims ol the right- wing raiders said they were afraid to talk about their experience because of threats of reprisals. The U.N. High Comission for Refuge I UNHCR i. which assists about 11.000 refugees from other Latin American countries living here, said it would protest the inci- denl to Argentina's military government. A spokesman said authorities had assured the commission thai no government security agencies were responsible. Victims said about 40 gunmen, shouting "Police, police," smashed into two hotels rented for refugees in a residential district within two blocks of a federal police station. K SOME 60 REFUGEES were lodged in the hotels, and 23 Chileans, one Uruguayan and one Paraguayan were punched and shoved from the buildings and into trucks, according to the UNHCR. A f t e r m a n y were beaten they were pushed out of the tracks in the predawn hours, Ihe refugees said, and told they must leave Argentina with their families wilhin 48 hours. Argentina became a reluctant haven to thousands of leftists and anlimilitarists from Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay during the Peronist administralion. They were targets of militant right-wing deal squads even before the March 24 military coup against President Isabel Peron.'and the attacks have continued. Two former Uruguayan legislators and ex- Bolivian President Juan Jose Torres were among the persons slain in recent months. Dr. Robert Muller. UNHCR representative here, said urgent efforts are being made to resettle the refugees abroad, but it is difficult because they first must receive visas from the countries where they hope to resettle. WASHINGTON--A spokesman for Rep. Wayne L. Hays, D-Ohio. confirmed Saturday that Hays has placed an employe on the payrolls of both his personal staff and the s t a f f of the House A d m i n i s t r a t i o n Committee which he heads. The confirmation followed a report in the Washington Post that Don R. Gosney, who lives and works in Hays' Ohio district, is simultaneously listed on Hays' Ohio office staff at a salary of $19.140. and on the administration committee staff for another $20.000 a year as an assistant clerk. Carol Clawson. Hays' spokeswoman, seid in a telephone i n t e r v i e w from the Ohio hospital where Hays is recovering from an overdose of sleeping medicine, that there is "nothing uncommon" about Gosney's payroll arrangement and that Gosney has done "a little bit of work" for the committee in addition to hi? duties on the Ohio office staff. ^ THE POST article also said that Gosney. a friend of the congressman for 25 years, met with Hays during visits to his district, according to former secretaries in the district office, but that he did not work out of the district office. Gosney. the article said, has been listed on the Ohio staff payroll for more than 10 years and he has been listed on the administration committee payroll since January 1975. According to Houses Rules Committee clerical staff duties include work for the chairman "on matters related to committee work." However, neither the clerk of the House nor the House parliamentarian could recall, in telephone interviews from their homes Saturday, a regulation that would prohibit a member from paying a clerical employe with both personal staff f u n d s and committee f u n d s . Nor could they recall a prohibition against paying clerical help with committee.: funds for personal staff work done. Since Elizabeth Ray charged that Hays put her on the public payroll at $14.000 a year to obtain her services as a mistress. Hays has come under congressional and grand jury investigations for possible mis- IMiitwl Stun- » 1'ugi- 121! use of public funds. »· IN BARNESVILLE, Ohio, Rep. Hays' doctor said S a t u r d a y he doesn't k n o w whether the embattled 65-year-old Democrat tried to commit suicide when he took an overdose of sleeping pills, and Mrs. Clawson, congressman's press secretary, made it clear she isn't going to ask him. Alter conferring with Mrs. Clawson. Dr. Richard Phillips told reporters that he s h o u l d n ' t have said earlier t h a t Hays might have taken 10 limes the normal dosage of Dalrnane. "I wandered from the facts and began lu speculate last night when I was tired." Phillips said. "1 had no right to do t h a t . All I can really tell you is that it's somewhere over the normal dose." Phillips said Hays looked fine and was alert when the doctor talked to him for live minutes Saturday morning. But Phillips said Hays didn't bring up the mailer of whether he knowingly took the over- (ll)S2. "I'm not going to talk to him about it until he wants to talk ahuul it." the doctor said. Mrs. Clawson said she would follow the doctor's example. » PHILLIPS SAID he prescribed the Dal- inane about 2'; weeks ago to help Hays withstand the pressure of the scandal t h a t had engulfed his 28-year House career and his marriage of two months to his wife.

Chile - A public attack by five Chilean lawyers on the repressive methods of the powerful state security police here has caused a furor in the debate on human rights by the general assembly of the Organization of American States. A 6,000-word declaration by the lawyers, circulated among the foreign ministers meeting here, said that the Chilean supreme court and the ministry of interior exercise no control over the agents of the National Intelligence Dirc"torate. which reports directly to President Augusto Pin- ndiet. The declaration provoked angry retorts from spokesmen of the m i l i t a r y govern- CIA Used Teenaged Girl in '60 Ploy Against Castro, Report Alleges NEW YORK (AP.' - A teenaged girl who caughl the eye of Fidel Caslro was sent to Havana by" the CIA in 1960 to kill the Cuban premier with poison tablets to be slipped into his coffee, according to the New York Sundav News. Charleston j Toledo 5 10 Inning* The assassination altempl f a i l e d he- cause the girl, fearful the tablets might be discovered as she entered Cuba, secreted them in a jar of cold cream in her handbag and they melted, the News said in a copyright story by Paul Meskil. THE GIRL, IDENTIFIED Marie Lorenz. told the newspaper lhat CIA agents who recruited her for the assassination mission told her "it would change history." She said the agents also told her, "You're the only one who can do it." The News said an investigator for the Senate Intelligence Committee and the newspaper traced the girl to where she now lives in New York City. Quoting Miss Lorenz. the newspaper gave this account: Miss Lorenz, a German-American, met Castro aboard the luxury liner Berlin one monttiafter he seized power in Cuba. Miss Lorenz' father was captain of the Berlin and took her along on a Caribbean cruise, which Castro joined al Havana Harbor. The Cuban leader dined wilh the captain and his daughter the evening he boarded the ship. He took a fancy to Miss Lorenz and later convinced her to return to Havana as his personal interpreter. She was lodged in his suite in the Havana Hilton. CIA operative Frank F i o r i n i , later known as Frank Sturgis when he was convicted as one of the Watergate burglars, made contact with Miss I^renz and persuaded her to photograph some of Castro's secret papers. He also later helped her escape from Cuba. The CIA told Miss I/renz that she could perform "a tremendous service" to the United Stales by assassinating Castro.

Richardo Claro, Ihe Chilean coordinator of the HAS conference, said the declaration constituted "an unspeakable act of treason" by the five lawyers, who include a former dean of law at the University of Chile, a former president of the Chamber of Deputies and a former representative of C h i l e to the I l n i l " d N a t i o n s H u m a n Rights Commission. The leading fignre among the lawyers was Jairne Castillo Velasco. a former minister of justice in the Christian Democratic govcrmnenl of P r e s i d e n t e E d w a r d o Krci. He has been a persistent critic ol the repression under the m i l i t a r y regime, and is a director of the magazine Politics and S p i r i l w h i c h the g o v e r n m e n t closed in November. The debate over the declaration by Ihe lawyers, which has lilied the local press. has focused more atu-nlion than ever lie- fore on the directorate, the security agency made up of at least 12.000 m i l i t a r y and civilian employes. Designed originally to coordinate the work of Ihe various m i l i t a r y intelligence services wilh Ihe police, the directorate has become the most powerful base of support for Pinochet. It is led by Col. Manuel Contreras, a close army associate of the president. The directorate operates Ihe three legal detention centers for persons arrested under the state of siege that has been in force since the mililary overthrew President Salvador Allende Gossens on Sept. 11. 1973. It also has many secret places of de- · tention, where torture is frequently employed in interrogations, according to the lawyers' report. ,,
