But Vietnam claimed thatgrowing anti-war feeling in China had forced the govern-ment to announce the with- drawal of its invasion armylast Monday. Hanoi also said a dissident radio stationinside China has been mak- ing clandestine broadcastsagainst the war. In their latest battle re-ports, the Vietnamese contin- ued to insist that despite whatwas told to the Chinese people Peking's troops were notpulling back across the bor- der and were indiscrimi-nately shelling Vietnamese cities and committing atroc-ities. However, Western intelli-gence sources said they were unable to say accurately howmuch fighting continued (Continued on Page 2, Col. 4) TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — PresidentCarter, appealing for support, arrived here Saturday strongly hinting that apeace accord between Egypt and Israel is nearing completion. "I have good reason to hope that thegoal can now be reached," the president said at Ben Gurlon Airport."I look forward to completing the urgent business at hand on this visit."Arriving at the end of the Jewish Sabbath, Carter and his wife, Rosalynn,were greeted by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and President YitzakNavon. Navon said Israel had made "enor-mous sacrifices far beyond what was expected" to achieve peace. But he saidhe prayed Carter's visit would remove Israel's concern about signing a peacetreaty "liable to endanger our security." During airport ceremonies, Carterstood in the darkness with his hand over his heart while the U.S. national anthemwas played. Carter, on the second leg of his peacejourney that began Thursday in Egypt, said he would confer with Begin on the same "final details" he discussed withEgypt's Anwar Sadat. From Tel Aviv, the president traveledto Jerusalem for ceremonial bread-and- wlne greetings from the mayor, followedby a private dinner at Begin's home. » s* * 0 \ ifc Taking liberties with the ACLU OLD BRIDGE, N.J. (AP)— The American Civil Liber- ties Union asked the wrongattorney to challenge a mu- nicipal loitering ordinance.Louis Alfonso said Friday he received a telephone callfrom the ACLU, asking him to take a public interest case."Where is the case?" Al- fonso asked. "Old Bridge inMiddlesex County" was the reply."Sorry," Alfonso told the ACLU. "I won't be able totake the case. But 1*11 see you in court. I'm the townshipattorney." Alfonso will defend thetownship against the legal challenge. A kiss for Prince Charming Shapely Janet Priest had her ambition fulfilled when sheplanted a kiss on the cheek of Prince Charles of Great Britain. "I couldn't resist kissing him," said Miss Priest as sheemerged from the surf of Australia's Cottesloe Beach in Perth. The prince, who was out for an early-morning swim, is on anofficial visit to Australia. (AP) At the airport, Carter appealed forsupport, saying "it would be a tragedy to turn away from the path of peace afterhaving come so far." The president's visit prompted Israeliauthorities to ban demonstrations in Jerusalem and workmen put a fresh coatof varnish on the paneling in Begin's office. Carter's Mideast mission was tenta-tively scheduled to end Monday, but U.S. officials acknowledged the possibility ofa return visit to Cairo on Tuesday. Carter and Begin last met on Monday inWashington, where U.S. officials presented new compromise suggestions (Continued on Page 2, Col. 1) * * * * * *Terror squad slain hours before visit TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — An Israeli army patrol trappedand killed four Palestinian guerrillas In a tomato field early Saturday before they could carry out a plot to terrorize Israelby seizing hostages in the hours before President Carter arrived, the military said.A Palestinian group in Beirut claimed its "suicide squad" had killed many Israeli soldiers before dying themselves. Butan army communique here said there were no Israeli casualties.The gun battle near the Jordan River's Adam Bridge occurred 20 hours before Carter arrived in Jerusalem, 30 milesto the south west. Elsewhere in the Israeli-occupied West Bank of the JordanRiver, Palestinians defying a ban on demonstrations burned tires and stoned Israeli trucks to protest Carter's visit toIsrael. There were no reports of injuries or arrests in the protests in Ramallah, the nearby El Am'ari refugee camp andJericho. The Israeli communique said the motorized patrolintercepted the four Palestinians at about midnight near the bridge. (Continued on Page 2, Col. 3) Cargo duty approved for AF women pilots N.Y. Times WASHINGTON — The Air Force has quietly decided toassign women pilots to big C-141 cargo planes around the world and on refueling tankers for all tactical aircraft.The Air Force decision, which is scheduled to be announced in a few weeks, follows a three-year test programin which women were trained as pilots on various planes except combat fighters."How have they done?" asked Lt. Gen. Bennie L. Davis, the Air Force Manpower and Personnel Chief. He thenanswered his own question by saying, "Very, very well." Antonia Handler Chuyes, Air Force Assistant Secretaryfor Manpower, Reserve Affairs and Logistics, said: "The implications of this are not only that women will serve as pilotson these aircraft, but that women, having served as pilots, will be able to move up to command and staff positions in the AirForce." Although the Air Force decision is a breakthrough forwomen in the military, Pentagon officials made it clear that restrictions remained for women in combat and that therewere few immediate prospects of women flying fighter planes (Continued on Page 2, Col. 3) ;
