A Druse advance overnight seized the last area, south of the airport, in which the battered lebanese army acted as a buffer between the Marines and militia forces. Shiite militia controlled the areas north, east and west of the airport base. A Marine spokesman said the U.S. forces did not come under fire in the offensive. The advance by the Syrian-supported Druse "has raised some concern, obviously," said Army Col. Ed McDonald, chief spokesman for the US. contingent in the multinational peacekeeping force in Beirut. He said the Marines were ordered to don flak Jackets and carry weapons but could leave the bunkers Marines can leave their base by helicopter to U.S. ships offshore. With his U.S.-traind arm falling apart, President Amin Gemayel today was reported ready to give in to opposition demands that he scrap Lebanon’s troop withdrawal pact with Israel. But Druse leader Walid Jumblatt said today he would demand Gemayel's removal from power even if the withdrawal accord were abrogated. "Amin Gemayel has to step down There will never be any talks, any dialogue, any reconciliation with the Phalangists or Amin Gemayel while he is in power," Jumblatt said today at a news conference in Damascus.Syria. Israel, which invaded the nation in 1982. has warned that it would keep its army in southern lebanon if the accord is scrapped Although it signed the pact last May with lebanon, Israel refused to remove its troops from lebanon until the Syrians pulled out their forces. Syria has refused to do so and the U.S.-mediated agreement that was designed to get foreign troops out of lebanon has not gone into effect. The Druse militias captured a strategic mile-long corridor to the sea after defeating government troops on Tuesday. It was the second defeat in eight days for the Lebanese army, which was pushed out of Moslem west Beirut last week. The U.S. Marines could depart on amphibious landing craft from the beach near the airport They would have to cross the coastal highway to get to the beach and Amal, the largest Shiite militia, has checkpoints along that stretch of highway. Beirut’s leading newspapers, the independent An-Nahar and leftist As-Safir, said Gemayel had decided to scrap the accord after the militiamen forced his army out of the coastal highway linking Beirut with Israeli-occupied southern lebanon. Druse insurgents capped a surprise offensive Tuesday by rolling down the hills from a mountain corridor they took from the army to link up with Shiite Moslem Militia allies in west Beirut, the Moslem half of the lebanese capital. The overnight hookup was at a coastal highway intersection just south of the U.S. Marine base at Beirut airport and a beachside hotel in suburban Khalde where Israel and Lebanon signed their U.S.-mediated agreement May 17. The newspapers said Gemayel was discussing with Lebanon's elder statesmen the political and legal process needed to cancel the accord. On Tuesday, Gemayel paid an unexpected visit to northern Lebanon and met with former President Suiemein Franjieh, a Christian allied with some of Gemayel’s Druse forces now control the highway to main Moslem opponents    Khalde, south of Marines at Beirut AirportMALDEF makes good on plans By DORIAN MARTIN Staff writ ac As planned, the Mexican American (agal Defense and Educational Fund Tuesday filed for a preliminary injunction to halt the New Braunfels ISD trustee election "We filed all the papers yesterday," said MAIJ)EF staff attorney Judith SandervCastro This lawsuit will be one of the topics during tonight s special meeting of the NBISD trustees Moat of the meeting, which will be at 7:38 p.m. at the administration offices, will be qxerA rn executive session, said NBISI) Superintent Charles Brad-berry The injunction request was filed in federal district court, and will be reviewed by District Judge William Sessions who took over the case from retired Judge Fred Shannon.

"The water is here,’’ Pfeiffer told the Greater Austin-San Antonio Corridor Council Tuesday "We are mg water short," he said Pfeiffer was part of a four-person panel who *poke to the council Tuesday at Southwest Texas State University. The corridor council consists of representatives from the governmental entities along Interstate 35 from Austin to San Antonio. The panel members stressed the importance of water management to the future of the corridor area. Population would directly affect the water situation along the corridor they said. Of the counties dependent upon the Edwards Underground Waler Aquifer, Comal County has increased in population 122 J percent since i960 It is second only to Hays County (which has a 127 5 percent population increase I la growth Without proper management, the water shortage would be so severe that water would have to be pumped into the springs in Comal and Hays counties from the aquifer itself, the panel said This forced “mining effect” would decrease the quality and quantity of water, ten panel warned.
