New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 12, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas PLO rejects Reagan peace plan New Braunfels Herald-Ze/'ft/ng    Tuesday, April 12,1983 WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan is convinced his Mideast peace Initiative is still alive, even though the Palestine liberation Organization has tuned it down, say administration officials. They say Jordan and Saudi Arabia have encouraged him to go on. The initiative will be discussed at meetings today between Reagan and the Sultan of Omen, Qaboos Bin Said, who is visiting the United States for the first time since 1975. An official White House welcome for the sultan, regarded as a close U.S. friend, was planned. John Hughes, the State Department spokesman, said Monday that both Jordan’s King Hussein and Saudi Arabia's King Fahd told Reagan in telephone conversations they think his plan still is worth pursuing. “We are determined to go forward with the Sept. I initiative,’’ Hughes said. "King Hussein and King Fahd share our resolve." “The president ... as a result of those conversations, is confident that the process is going forward," said Hughes.“He is confident they have not given up." In Jordan, sources who spoke on condition they not be identified said King Hussein believes no progress will be made toward peace in the Middle East unless the United States or the PLO softens its stand on the future of the West Bank and Caza Strip. Hughes went further than the administration has ever before gone publicly about the degree of Saudi support for the Reagan plan. A Saudi peace plan, considered a rival to the U.S. plan, was approved by Arab nations at their summit in Fez, Morocco last year. Hughes and other officials admitted that the PLO rejection was a serious setback, and it wasn’t clear how the administration planned to revitalize the Reagan initiative. The PLO rejected it by raising last-minute objections to an agreement for Jordan to represent Palestinian interests in peace negotiations with Israel. In a statement from Jordon on Sunday, King Hussein said he wouldn’t join peace talks without approval of the PLO. The PLO insisted on having its own voice at the bargaining table and demanded a prior commitment to a separate Palestinian state on the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. The Jordanian source said Hussein and his government will be turning their at tention to internal affairs including the possible elections in the next few months that would exclude the Palestinians on the West Bank, who now are represented in the Jordanian Parliament. The chief difference between the Reagan and the Saudi plan approved at Fez is that the Fez plan calls for creation of a separate Palestinian state on the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, while Reagan’s plan provides for Palestinian selfgovernment in association with Jordan. Israel has rejected both plans. But another indication that moderate Arab nations are moving closer to the Reagan plan came in the Sunday statement from Jordan. The Reagan initiative was called “the vehicle" that could carry out the Saudi plan approved at Fez. He is afraid. He is totally done. He is 3 million light years from home. *EX~ ■the Extra- I Terrestrial ■(BS 8HOWTIME8 TUES. TMflU THUSS 7:M QUIT Chicago mayor Bitter racial campaign ends with voting today CHICAGO (AP) -After a bitterly fought campaign shadowed by racial tensions, voters today had to choose between electing the first black mayor in the city’s history or the first Republican mayor in a half-century. Democratic nominee Harold Washington and Republican candidate Bernard Epton appeared to be burying the hatchet in the waning hours of the campaign Monday evening, although both claimed they would win today's election. Polls were to open at 6 a m. and close at 7 p.m. for the city’s 1.6 million voters. Political analysts predicted 1.3 million voters might turn out if the weather was good The forecast, however, was for cloudy skies with a chance of rain in the afternoon. Officials said Monday that absentee balloting was running at twice the pace of the last mayoral election in 1979. In recent days, both candidates have zeroed in on the liberal lakefront area, flooding it with campaign brochures, mass mailings and radio ads ‘ These are the white voters most likely to be influenced by issues rather than race,’’ political analyst Don Rose said. “Well, I wish you well. Bernie.” Washington said in a split-screen discussion Monday with Kptonon WI£-TV You know I will do anything I can as mayor to make things easy for you.” “I certainly wish him well.” said Epton at another location. “I hope he comes in second.” Both candidates acknowledged that the campaign has been marked by bitterness. “Harold has made some remarks that perhaps he shouldn't have," said Epton “He may feel the same about me." During the campaign, Epton called attention to evidence of Washington's late payment of bills and the Democrat's no-contest plea for failing to file tax returns. “One has a tendency to slough over his own faults and exacerbate and dramatize the opponent's,” said Washington, who ran a television commercial portraying Epton as a puppet of President Reagan. The candidates agreed to meet at a prayer breakfast Wednesday. Washington also invited Mrs. Byrne and State’s Attorney Richard Daley, whom he defeated in the Feb. 22 Democratic primary. As volunteer poll-watchers and police geared up to oversee balloting, Washington focused on still-undecided lakefront liberals and renewed his pledge to dump the city’s rickety patronage system Epton. meanwhile. relied on a few public appearances to thank volunteers and a last-minute radio appeal. Adelman debate heats up as confirmation vote nears WASHINGTON <AP> — A private advocate of nuclear weapons reductions says Kenneth L. Adelman's nomination, coming up for a close vote in the Senate, has already brought hardship to the arms control agency he would head. The Senate beg ms debate today and is scheduled to vote Thursday on President Reagan's nomination of Adelman. 36, deputy U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to head the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. Both sides say the count is close, with a dozen or so senators, most of them Republican, undecided. William H. Kmcade, executive director of the Arms    Control Association, told the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on international security Monday that the arms control agency has been treated with “malign neglect" by the Reagan administration Kincade said the agency’s budget for research has been pared from 14 million in the Carter administration to 11.1 million and its staff had been reduced about 25 percent in recent years. “Finally, the nomination to the directorship of an individual with very problematic professional qualifications or interest rn arms control and with equally problematic access to either the secretary of state or the president has worked an additional and gratuitous hardship on the agency,” Kincade said. Meanwhile, Sen. Paul Tsongas, D-Mass . a leading opponent of the nomination, told Senate colleagues in a letter that Adelman lacks “significant arms control experience” and should be replaced with a ' credible nominee.” But Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind , an Adelman supporter, said in a similar letter, “We are convinced that he is an advocate of balanced arms reduction, and that his views in this regard are consistent with those of President Reagan.” Kincade testified at a hearing on the administration’s proposed budget for the agency, which totals |20 million, compared with $16.7 million in the current fiscal year and $17 million in the last one. “It is not gouig too far to say that the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency would be an international joke, were it not that the situation is so tragic,” he said. ‘ At a tune when the limitations of purely military approaches to the problem of security are evident as never before, this institution is foundering beneath a burden of malign neglect.” Former high officials of the arms control agency seconded the testunony of Kincade, a former naval intelligence officer and an author on anus control issues,    whose organization is engaged in nonprofit research on weapons reductions.
