Egypt's official Middle East News Agency said the resignation was submitted by Premier Abdel AM Hcgaty during a meeting with Sadat in Cairo, The agency said Sadat will make a nationwide speech Monday evening to outline his policies on inflation, housing and food shortages and transportation problems. The new cabinet will be Egypt's eighth since Sadat took power in October ISTu. Official sources said the new cabinet will be named Wednesday and sworn in the following day. 3 the trio proved futile. The whereabouts of the girls is the center of a search by Fort Worth private investigator John Swaim who was retained by their parents and came to Calhoun County in hopes of solving the mystery of their disappearance "from the face of the Earth," he said.
FATE STILL UNKNOWN Despite an anonymous informant's directions that the bodies ot Mary Rachel Arnold Trlica, 17, left; Lisa Renee Wilson, 14, center; and Julie Ann Mosley, 9, would be found somewhere In a stretch of bridges covering five miles along State Highway 35 south of Port Lavaca, Sunday's search for $4,000 mReuardsOffered Contlnued began offering in excess of $4,000 in rewards for information leading to location of the girls, dead or alive. The parents waited anxiously Sunday, as each bit of new-found clothing, or each new possible lead was investigated, and sadly rejected. 1 "Not knowing is driving everybody etazy," said Mrs. Mosley. "But, the waiting has been the hardest part." They waited in a motor home stationed mid-way between the outposts of the search area, small posters with pictures of the girls and the reward offer taped to the camper windows.
They were nervous, worried, and at times irritable, and constantly concerned. Swaim and Woods both conceded prior to the search that finding any trace of the girls in the marshy, undergrown areas along the highway would be next to impossible, even with all the help that was available and that which was offered. "Why, I almost fired a man over this project, because when I saw what this area was like, I knew it was almost hopeless," said Swaim. Even as he and Woods determined how they would go about searching the snake-infested swamp bogs, offers of boats and volunteers poured into Port Lavaca, some from as far away as Corpus "Everybody has been real nice to us through this," said Mrs. Mosley, "and we appreciate it." Numerous possible grave sites were dug, and several witnesses interviewed who might have come into contact with the girls, but nothing could be developed Into a solid lead.
Discouraged by the events, Swaim and Woods terminated the search at 3 p.m. Swaim said that no further efforts would be made in Calhoun County to locate the girls, and that his clients had instructed him to continue the investigation, and that he would not accept any proposals that the girls be declared "officially dead" until evidence was found to prove it. When last seen, Mrs. Trlica was wearing an orange and white striped blouse with high-waisted jeans, and brown shoes with heels. She was wearing wedding rings, a gold dinner ring with diamonds, and a heart-shnped pendant.
Miss Wilson was wearing a yellow T-shirt with "Sweet Honesty" written on the front in green lettering, blue hip-hugger pants (three button), red and white oxford shoes, and a white gold diamond promise ring. Miss Mosley was last seen wearing a red long -sleeve blouse with blue denim jeans and red tennis shoes with white toes. That was four and a half months ago. By The Associated Press Lebanese rightists and Palestinian guerrillas clashed Sunday in suburban Beirut, leaving a reported persons killed and 19 wounded. Members of the rightist Phalange party, which is opposed to armed guerrilla presence in Lebanon, and the Palestinians gave conflicting versions.
Police refused comment. The Phalangists said Palestinians opened tire on celebrants at the Inauguration of a church in the middle class suburb of Ein Rummaneh, where party leader Pierre Gemayel was presiding. They added one of their Beirut offices as blow up later. According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, Phalangist snipers ambushed a busload of Palestinians as it passed the church en route to a refugee camp. It said 26 Palestinians were killed and 19 were wounded.
A Phalangist spokesman reported a party member and two other persons were also killed. Official silence reflected the government's fragile authority over the Palestinian guerrillas and the militant Christian Phalangists, who maintain a wellarmed militia estimated to number at least several thousand. Lebanon is the campsite (or an estimated 12,000 Palestinian guerrillas and their presence has shaken the Christian-Moslem balance of Lebanese society. The Phalangist party, with more than 65,000 members, is opposed to Lebanese-based guerrilla attacks on Israel for fear of Israeli retaliation. Premier Rashid el-Solh met Sunday night with top army and security officials in an effort to head off further violence.
The clash came as Palestinian leaders, including guerrilla chief Yasir Arafat, gathered in Damascus, Syria, for a meeting of the central committee of the Palestine Liberation Organiiation.

Ford Plan Approval Claimed NEW YORK Newsweek magazine said Sunday, that President Ford has approved a plan called "Operation Talon Vise" to evacuate up to 200,000 South Vietnamese whose lives would be endangered by a Communist takeover of the country. However, the magazine said some Pentagon officials believe the plan to evacuate select politicians, military officers and civil servants might require up to six divisions to carry out and might ultimately lead to renewed fighting by U.S. troops in Vietnam. Newsweek said the plan calls for special efforts in behalf of Vietnamese who worked for the Central Intelligence Agency's Phoenix program, which allegedly liquidated thousands of Viet Cong sympathizers and supporters. According to the magazine's account, helicopters would be used to pick up evacuees from outlying areas who would be flown out of Tan Son Nhut air base aboard giant C5A cargo jets or picked up by U.S.
ships at Vung Tau, 40 miles southeast of Saigon. They would be taken to the Philippines and other countries, Newsweek said.

Rockefeller left Sunday for Taiwan following a diplomatic clamor over who would represent the United States at the funeral of the late Nationalist Chinese President Chiang Kai-shek, President Ford originally intended to name Agriculture Secretary Earl BuU to attend Wednesday's services for Chiang, who died April 5. The nationalist government on Taiwan objected strongly, US. officials said, on grounds that anyone lower in rank than Rockefeller or Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was an insult.
Joining in the protest were several congressional supporters of the nationalist regime and the remaining elements of the so-called "China Lobby," an unofficial group of business and political leaders opposing better U.S. relations with the mainland Communist regime. Sen. Barry Goldwater, publicly criticized Ford's intention to appoint BuU. and Sen.
