"All armed men must sur- render to army troops, who are their brothers, In order to avoid bloodshed and spare your lives." The guerrilla radio In the Iraq capital, Baghdad, said army lanks were "trying to break Into Amman's cily center." The broadcast claimed Ihe guerrillas had beaten back the armored advance, destroying tbrce tanks and disabling two olhei-s wilh bazooka fire. Another government broad- cast claimed that guerrillas in Zarqa, 15 miles northeast of Amman, liad surrendered. Zarqa is near the airstrip where guerrillas of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine blew up three hijacked airliners on Saturday after removing pas- sengers and crews. Majali declared a curfew In Amman and Zarqa, saying any- one seen on the streets would be shot. All telephone lines lo Jordan were out of commission. Us frontiers were closed and air Iraffic lo Amman- was shut down. The appeal for Iraqi help came from the Central Commit- tee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Ihe over-all guer- rilla group headed by Yasir Ar- alat. "We ask you to participate in thjs bailie and intervene immediately on the side of the revolutionary forces, to over- throw the regime of treason and the Central .Commit- tee raid in a broadcast nn the guerrilla radio. "The Central Commillee affirms the necessi- ty of your Immediate interven- tion." A pall of black and. gray smoke rose over Amman as the bailie raged through the morn- ing. The U.S. Embassy was hit by small arms fire and a mor- tar shell landed on the roof, but sources said no Americans were injured in the early hours of fighting. At one-point, Jordanian army headquarters was shelled. Fighting near the airport ap- peared intense, and an army halftrack began evacuating cas- ualties to a nearby military hos- pilal. A guerrilla communique broadcast by Radio Baghdad said the fiercest fighting flared up in the Wahdat district on Amman's northern outskirts. Wahdal is the site of the huge Palestinian refugee camp where some, if not all, of the 54 host- ages from last week's airline hi- jackings are believed held. "Our fighters in Wahdat In- flicted heavy casualties on at- tacking the commu- nique said. There was no men- tion from either side of the host- ages. The communique also claimed the guerrillas had occupied Am- man's central post office build- wing "following fierce fighting with the army unit guarding it."

(AP Wircphotb) Bob Hope, John Wayne And Billy Graham 4F? Q. I recently read a paper In which (he names of Senators Hughes, McGovern, Church, Bob Hope, Billy Graham and Jnhn Wayne appeared under various headings. 1 know that Senators Church, Hughes anrt McGovern have brilliant combat records In World War II. Bob Hope, John Wayne, and Billy Graham never wore a uniform In defense of their cnuntrv. Can you slate why? Were they all 4F? A. John Wayne said he wasn't in the service because at the time of WWII he was 38 years old and the father of four children. He added thai in that war as well as the Vietnam war he was sent oul on tours for morale purposes and spent time behind enemy lines. Come on up sometime and we'll let you see John Wayne's letter and his personal signature, too. We won't hold our breath waiting for you Ihough; we'd guess you're not one of his fans. Hope and Graham didn't answer your question personally, but they have legitimate excuses. During WWII Bob Hone was In his thirties and had a family, but he also went on USO tours, including some near the front lines. Billy Graham was in his twenties during WWII, but was exempt from military service because he was a minister. Q. I'd like lo know if It's possible to get a home loan (mm one of the local banks or savings companies In order lo pay Ihe home seller cash. Also If you sell a house on lime and carry Ihe papers yourself, can that loan be sold later to someone else? A. Except, in rare circumstances, banks normally don't make home loans; they generally prefer short-term loans. But a savings and loan company or a mortgage company would loan you money on a long term basis if you meet its qualifications. You'd belter check wilh a lending agency for a specific case. We've sent you the name of someone who can tell you whether or not you would qualify. N It's also possible lo finance the sale of Ihe home yourself and al a later date you might be able lo sell the role to a lending agency if the note meets the lending agency requirements and qualifications. Q. When and where were the first electrically operated traffic signal lights Installed? Also when were they first Installed In Abilene and where? A. The very first signal was installed Aug. 5, 1914 al Euclid Avenue and E. I05lh Street in Cleveland, Ohio. In Abilene, the first signal was installed al N. 2nd and Pine. The light had bells on the bottom that clanged whenever the light changed to alert drivers that the signal was changing. When was il installed? Now, why did you have to ask that? We've lalked to the man who installed the light, the company lhat installed it and the man who had Ihe first accident al the light, bul none can remember the day. The installer said he felt sure It was in the 1920s but couldn't be more specific. On Kch. 6, 1025, a city ordinance was passed requiring people to slop for signal lights, which would indicate they either had just been Installed or were about to be Installed. By ELL1F, HUCKER School Head Perplexed At Violence LAS VEGAS, Nov. (AP) A score of students have been injured, 100 arrested, 300 sus- pended, and (he young super- intendent of schools here says he does not know how to end the racial turbulence tearing apart the city's high schools. Today he faces an additional problem: black parents voted Wednesday night to boycott Ihe schools until the situation changes. "I just wish they would give us a clue as to why they are Supl. Kenny Guinn said. "We haven't had any real de- he said. "It seems to be an f don't like you and we don't like you sort of thing." Guinn, 33, took over last Sep- tember as superintendent of schools, and has been living with the race problem since. Violence began last October after a full-scale riot in the city's predominantly black west side. It hit nearly every school here before the end of the school year.. The trouble this year began with school barely two weeks old. Bands of black students beat 10 while students al Rancho High School last Friday and the first two days of this week.
