WASHINGTON The invasion of Grenada and the death of more than 200 American Marines in Lebanon complicates President Reagans foreign policy just as he draws near to a decision on whether to seek re Reagan was ready to roll on a platform of peace through but now may have to justify the invasion of the Caribbean country and his determination to keep Marines on duty and in danger in the Middle The death toll in highest since the Vietnam is stirring up and not because the legislators disagree with Reagans dual goals of bolstering the Beirut government and improving the chances of peace between Israel and its Arab Congress shares those But it knows how much Vietnam has left its mark on the American The national interests of the United States must be at stake for all to see before the voters will endorse a military venture Charles a Maryland reflected that sentiment after the Beirut massacre when he called for a clearer definition of goals in the Middle Reagan attempted to provide it in a meeting Monday with regional editors and broadcasters at the White He said the Marines were in Lebanon to maintain order while a govern ment could be and their military could then acquire the capability necessary to reinstitute their control over their own In view of Lebanons recent that could take several Congress gave Reagan 18 and may be ready to The Grenada invasion is potentially more explosive for Reagan since it conjures up for critics the hip shooters image the president worked so hard in the Oval Office to Secretary of State George Shultx said the Rangers and Marines were sent to Grenada to protect the nearly citizens from being hurt or taken hostage in an atmosphere of violent uncertainty following last weeks Supporters of Reagan in Congress detected an additional motive to force the removal of a Marxist backed by the Soviet Union and If that is the the president may find it harder to defend risking American lives to sweep out Marxists than it is to use Marines as One day weve got the number of Marine deaths which shocked us and the next day we find we are in vading Lawton said Are we looking for a war we can win Reagan and the Republican National Committee were not looking for this sort of potential political Reagan still hasnt said hell run again next And at a news conference only last he refused to be pinned saying only down the road one probably in the

Reagan is escalating the rationale for his Lebanon policy by suggesting that a military withdrawal could lead to Soviet domination of the entire Middle East and a cutoff of Western access to the regions oil By depicting the stakes in those terms Reagan indicated that previous administration justifications for ths Marine presence in Lebanon did not go to the heart of the Before the administration had been defending the Marines mission in more limited terms to make Israels northern herder to help achieve Lebanese national reconciliation and to promote the withdrawal of all foreign forces from But speaking a day after the airport said the stakes Inveivod Ml only Lebanons political but that of the entire MMsle the security of Wi oil forest loyal to He If Lebanon ends up under the tyranny of forces hostile to the not only will our strategic position in the eastern Mediterranean be but also the stability of the entire Middle including the vast resource areas of the Arabian Despite the enormity of the Reagan said it would be a mistake for American forces to become involved in the area other than in a peacekeeping If Americans were to go into We would be fighting Arab and that is not the road to he Reagans statement left some analysts wondering whether the administration can achieve its am bitious objectives for the region with noncombatant There were echoes In Reagans remarks Monday of bis speech last April In which he outlined what would happen if Cangrese rejected his proposed UN million aid request a trifling sun nowadays for Central America Our

theres plenty of work for them to Like they could learn a little about building new ones by fixing the ones they put up ten years Everywhere I go I see perfectly good houses that have been aban Why couldnt the building industry and the people who want houses rebuild those instead of building new ones Why cut down more trees when we have wooden houses rotting for want of a little care and a coat of paint Why dig up more iron ore to turn into cars and farm machinery when we have cars and farm machinery rusting away that only need a little mechanical repair and some grease It would be a year in

economy depends on WUGUESSIHESTREFELT ABOUT James Kilpatrick Stripping the Bible of gender is senseless ift AI 1 It probably is a waste of energy and indignation to denounce the latest effort to castrate the Holy but vandalism of this magnitude ought not to go The National Council of Churches is out to take the sex out of the In the name of what is the council up to now This particular piece of desecration is a 112page Inclusive Language Lectionary intended for use in Presbyterian nd Roman Catholic A lection is a liturgical lesson for a particular Passages come from both the Old and the New The councils purpose is to rewrite these passages so as to eliminate references to or as an to spread the gender Thus Jesus no longer would bt identified as the son of but rather as ths child of In this egalitarian it is God the Father and The word king gives way to and kingdom yields to No longer is a promise made to Abraham and his but rather to Abraham and Sarah and their Up to a it is possible to be sympathetic toward the aim of these misguided In recent years most of us in the writing business have become sensitive to feminist complaints against sexism in the English There is something to be said for the argument that such terms as manpower and man hours tend to denigrate the value of womens role in the When it is possible to avoid offense by eliminating pronouns of it is a fair and prudent thing to do But the rewriting urged by the National Council of Churches is in One example will In Matthews account of the Last Jesus announces that he is about to be and the apostles is it I The King James version continues And he answered and He that dippeth his hand with me in the the same shall betray The Son o man goeth as it is written of him but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed The Revised Standard Version is virtually the The NCCs new lectionary would put it this way Jesus The one who dipped a hand in the dish with will betray The Human One goes as it is but woe to that person by whom the Human One is betrayed The first trouble with that abominable revision may be stated simply Matthew never wrote it that The Gospels were written in I will not be drawn into an argument about divine inspiration and the word of God theology is off my But I know something of the art of translation and of the respect that is owed to an original It is patent dishonesty it is an act of corruption in the most literal sense to put into the mouth of Matthew words that Matthew did not John never wrote that God so loved the world that God gave Gods only The Greek passage cannot possibly be mistranslated by anyone who sets out to do a faithful The words are not only The words are only The councils recasting is not only dishonest it is the product of an essentially mistaken notion that man is invariably a sexist This is nonsense Only the moat wildly militant feminists believe that Man does not live by bread alone applies to males Who is so blockheadod as to argue that mankind tiHwhe women The NCC reviaers evidently are that Observe the contrived and clumsy translations they have cooked up in this My guess is that nest congregations will reject the councils neutering out of The new lee tionary Is only the nest recent of a score of welMateadsd efforts along the same None of the predecessors has caught and I doubt that Englishspeaking
