I( **' Carter relays Egypt's plan to Israel's Begin WASHINGTON (AP)--Pres. promote an eventual Middle In 1974 and 1975 n»rtl«l »<rrpp. W... R.nv .«^ P.».» ......M K.. i.r.-i ...«..,^., ^^ WASHINGTON (AP) — Pres irient Carter is relaying Egypt's appraisal of Israeli negotiating proposals to Prime Minister Mcnahem Begin as well as the U.S. view of the plan that would give civil self-rule to Palestinian Arabs. Carter talked by telephone to Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and is said to be encouraged that Begln's outline could promote an eventual East settlement. Egypt, under the plan, would get back almost all of the Slnal land it lost during the Six-Day War of 1967, while Israel would retain a security corridor near its border. Areas extending eastward from the Suez Canal as well as oil fields and strategic mountain passes were handed back In 1974 and 1975 partial ngree ments. For Palestinians on the West Bank of the Jordan River and in Gaza, there would be civil self-rule. Jews would remain free to live on the West Bank, which Jordan lost in the 1967 war but they, too, would be under Palestinian authority. While Egypt would reassert Its soverignlty in Slnal, the West Bank nnrt Onrn wnulri belong to neither Israel nor Jordan and there would be no Palestinian state. The question of legal status was discussed Friday by Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance, a career lawyer, and Ahron Barak, the Israeli attorney general, at the State Department. The Palestinians would not be permitted to have an army and Israel would maintain military control for a specified period. Begin, an observant Jew. is spending the Sabbath at Blair House, shunning official business. He planned to meet there with Rabbi Alexander Schindler of New York, the chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. What Israel stands to gain In cics! tf it is sccs n tsd 1* * ponce treaty with Egypt that establishes normal relations between the two old warring neighbors. To Israel, this means an exchange of ambassadors plus commercial and other ties. There was never much doubt that In a peace agreement Israel would return almost all of the Slnal. But Begln's con- cession toward the Palestinian Arabs represents a departure from his government's hard- line stance regarding the West Bank, In the past, Begin had insisted on maintaining total Israeli control. There was some question, therefore, that however eager the Israeli public may b« to end the state of war with Egypt, that It will support on- the government's concessions. The Palestine Liberation Organzatlon. meanwhile, appears left out in the cold, with no role In the negotiations and its statehood goal unfulfilled. At a news conference on Wednesday, Carter said the PLO had taken "a completely negative attitude" on recent peace efforts. Tankers fire out PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa (AP) - Safety Inspectors boarded two stricken American-owned supertankers today after fires on both were extinguished and the vessels were taken in tow by rescue tugs, port authorities reported here. The tankers, which collided off South Africa's southeast coast, were being towed out to sea to reduce the danger of coastal pollution during the inspections, port officials said. Authorities said no final decision has been made on what to do with the tankers, one empty and the other carrying more than 75 million gallons of crude oil. Sources said the oil from the loaded tanker probably will be transfered at sea to another ship. The American-owned tankers burst into flame after colliding in morning fog Friday in the Indian Ocean 20 miles off South Africa's southeastern coast. Two seamen were reported missing and 82 others, most of them Chinese, were rescued. Both Liberian-flng vessels are owned and operated by a Bethlehem Steel subsidiary, Bethlehem spokesman Bill Glgnak said. The supertankers, 1,115 feet long and 176 feet wide, were chartered by the Gulf Oil Corp. South African port authorities said the 330,954-ton Venoll was carrying a cargo of crude oil from the Persian Gulf around the Cape of Good Hope. ouncil approves state pay hikes 'Little-known economist' Korea shuffles cabinet LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Arkansas Legislative Council approved a plan Friday to give raises to about 1,100 state em- ployes without sending the state pay plan back through the legislature. If that approach is legal, and a few legislators said they thought it would be, it would partly solve one of the problems which could contribute to pressure for a special legislative session next year. However, there is some doubt about the legality of this approach because of the language of the Arkansas law which sets the pay plan for state government employes. Cost also may be a factor. Granting these raises would cost in excess of $300,000, the council was told, but some legislators seemed to think the costs might be more. The ALC also named a committee of legislators to look into another potential special session area — the financial needs of the Human Services Department. The committee, Including some members who were concerned about how the department used a |1 million appropriation, is to make a report to the council at its next meeting. The amount the department pays nursing homes for their service in the medtcald program will go up significantly in January, partly because many nursing home employes will benefit from the federal minimum wage hike. But the way the department has used some of the $1 million appropriation also caused some questions. Sen. John F. "Mutt" Gibson of Dermott and Rep. John E. Miller of Melbourne said the $1 million had been intended to make nursing home care available to many people who were just barely ineligible for the medlcald program. Officials of the department said the money had been partly used for that. What the committee determines about additional funds the department may need could go a long way toward deciding whether a special session is needed. Both the state employe pay raises and the higher payments to nursing homes for their service in the medlcald program are related to the federal minimum wage Increase due to take effect next month. What the nursing homes pay their employes is expected to go up when the federal minimum wage of $2.65 an hour takes effect. That, in turn, will affect the amount the state pays the nursing homes. TOKYO (AP)-North Korea has spurred efforts to rebuild Its shattered economy with a drastic cabinet reshuffle, giving the premier's post to an economic expert little known to the outside world. The new cabinet lineup, announced over Radio Pyongyang Thursday, also showed a group of new young economic technocrats In a number of key posts, The new premier is U Jong- ok, former chairman of the heavy Industry commission and a long-time advocate of an "economy-first" policy In North Korea, one of the world's most closed Communist societies. Personal details concerning U are sketchy and even his birthdate Is unknonwn. It has been reported variously as 1905 and 1016. He first moved Into the limelight In 1951 when he became light Industry minister, a key position among North Korean industrial policy planners. But In 1970, he was relieved of his posts In the party Polit- buro and as a vlco premier, reportedly to take responsibility for failures to fulfill the 106HJ7 economic plan, which eventually was extended to 1970. However, he was rehabilitated as mining Industry minister In 1971 for the start of the next six-year economic plan and became chairman of the heavy Industry commission In 1972. He regained his vice premier's job In November 1976, North Korea's economy, hit by drought, debt, took of markets and bad management, obituaries >hrine Club entertains I at Christmas dinner Millwood Shrine Club entertained 81 members and guests at a Christmas dinner at Sheraton Inn on Tuesday.
