By MARCUS F.HASON NAHAL GESHUR (AP) The Israeli girls in unifonn wept as they waited for a truck lo take them to the funeral of Iheir comrade killed by the Syrian barrage the day before. Everywhere they looked was deslruclion, the work of the Arab artillery that hit their settlement on the Golan Heights. A recreation room look a direct hit; chairs, tables and television scls were smeared with blood. Kleclric wires dangled in the breeze, and the settlement had lost ils electric power. Soldiers piled the carcasses of 50 sheep inlo a smelly heap. The Israeli flag still flew, but it was partly shredded by shell splinters. A tree smoldered, and smoke rose from several places where shells had exploded. fn addition to the 18-year-old girl soldier killed, four girls and two young men were wounded. "I'm just crying at all this said one of Ihe girls in uniform sticking plaster over a shrapnel scratch on her cheek. "It's terribly depressing. We work so hard here, and now this, and Dorit (the dead girl) Il's an awful lliing." But the several dozen young settlers of Nahal Geshur said they would stay on des- pite the threat of more shelling from the Syrians a few miles away. The Israelis claimed the Syrians launched a sudden artillery barrage at the settlement Monday. The Israelis fired artillery and tank blasts back then sent Iheir warplanes againsl the Syrian guns. Nahal Geshur is on Ihe central Golan Heights captured from Syria in (he war Ihree years ago. It was established a year ago by a group of Nahal youths, mem- bers of the army branch which sets up farm settlements in the territories occupied during the short war. ussein, Arafat Agree on Truce 32 Hostages Held in Amman Hotel By THE ASSOCIATED VRESS Amman Radio announced that King Hussein of Jordan and guerrilla .leader Yasir Aratal concluded an agreement today to end the fighting between their forces in Jordan's capital.

One or the hostages in the .lor- dan Intercontinental Hotel was a son of former President Ca- mille Chamoun of Lebanon.

The plaintiffs charge the school with punishing students participated in the walkout by giving them uncxcused absences. Miss Bryand said the unexcused absence rule should not apply to the boycotting stu- dents. "We felt like we were being punished, like they were saying we were doing something wrong, and we she said.

McMillan, seeking renomination lo his 17th term, failed lo win a majority in Tues- day's Democratic primary and could be forced into a runoff wiln a 38-year-old Negro physi- cian.

McMillan, 72-year-old chair- man of Ihe House District of Co- lumbia Committee, far outdis- tanced his three opponents Tuesday but fell 719 votes short of the majority needed lo elimi- nate the possibility of a June 23 runoff. A surge of late votes for Ste- phens from predominantly Ne- gro areas in late vole counting took him into second place and cut McMillan's margin from a majority in the unofficial totals.

Ihe Popular Front charged Tuesday night that the Jorda- nian army was bombarding Palestine refugee camps around Amman, causing many deaths. The guerrilla spokesman said the safety of the hostages could not be guaranteed if these at- tacks continued. Necld's report made no men- tion of the broadcast announce- ment of Hie Hussein-Arafat agreement and apparently was sent before it was announced. Communications with Amman were sharply curtailed. The hostages in the Interconti- nental included 14 Britons and three West Germans as well as the Americans and Hie Le- banese. All were slaying in the hotel. A spokesman (or Ihe Popular Front in Beirut, Lebanon, said Ihe hostages were in no danger. "They are having a good time, he said. "They are eating ice cream for free."

They took up firing positions on bedroom balconies and placed guards at every exit. Most of the guests spent the night huddled in the hotel base- ment.

But the hostages were free to do as (hey pleased inside the hotel and none was ill treated. Market- Lower NEW YORK (AP) Stock market prices opened lower to- day in moderate trading.

Diesel engine buses are more A economical to operate and should last longer, is Ihe reason the city decided on them. Q.
