Moslems denounce Americans during mourning demonstration
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — Mourning Moslem families, followed by a procession of demonstrators shouting anti-American slogans, buried on Saturday victims of the car bomb explosion that killed 75 people and injured at least 250.
Protesters shook fists and chanted “Death to America, death to Israel!” as victims’ bodies, wrapped in black cloth, were buried in a mass grave.
The blast Friday at the Shiite Moslem suburb of Ghobeiri was the deadliest in Beirut since truck bombings of U.S. and French military headquarters on Oct. 23, 1983, killed 241 U.S. servicemen and 58 French soldiers.
Rescue workers dug three more bodies from a wrecked apartment building shortly before pallbearers took the bodies of other victims to their graves.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility
for the attack. Lebanese government officials and religious leaders blamed Israel, but offered no proof. Israel made no comment on the charges.
Black banners, hung on a damaged building, read “Made in USA,” “Down with Israel. Down with USA.”
The bomb destroyed an eight-story apartment building and damaged a mosque filled with worshipers gathering at dusk for prayers. Police estimated the car contained at least 330 pounds of explosives.
The explosion spread fire and destruction in the neighborhood. Butane gas cannisters stored in an apartment blew up after the bomb blast, police said.
Those detonations hampered rescue operations that went on through the night. Four apartment buildings also caught fire, as did dozens of cars.
In other developments:
—Five Israeli soldiers were wounded in an overnight guerrilla attack on their position at the Qasmiyeh Bridge over the Litani River — the boundary of Israel’s occupation zone in south Lebanon.
The Israelis withdrew to the Litani last month in preparation for their complete withdrawal from Lebanon, which Israeli leaders have said they hope to finish by the end of the summer.
Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982 to destroy strongholds of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
—In Bikfaya, a Christian suburb northeast of Beirut, Syrian Vice President Abdel-Halim Khaddam met Lebanese Christian and Moslem leaders in an effort to mediate a disagreement over political reforms intended to end Lebanon’s 10-year civil war.
Delegates set for arms talks
GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) -Max M. Kampelman, the chief American delegate to new U.S.-Soviet arms talks, arrived in Geneva Saturday and pledged efforts toward the “taming and then the elimination of nuclear weapons.”
A 10-member delegation from the U.S. Senate flew into Geneva later Saturday. The senators, along with eight members from the House of Representatives, will observe the early stages of the negotiations.
Ambassador Kampelman arrived from Washington on a U.S. Air Force plane with fellow negotiators John G. Tower and Maynard W. Glitman. They will first meet the Soviet representatives on Tuesday to formally resume nuclear arms talks that
have been in suspension for more than 15 months following a Soviet walkout.
Kampelman said his 80-member team will “thoroughly and responsibly explore all avenues that can lead to ... fair and equitable agreements.
“We are ready to build a bridge to a global environment of greater stability through the taming and then the elimination of nuclear weapons.”
But Kampelman, a lawyer with long experience in negotiating with the Soviet, said the talks would be difficult.
“Our differences on the issues of nuclear arms are deep and deeply held. It would be folly to expect them to be bridged overnight,” he said.

Reagan continues campaign for MX missile
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan pressed his lobbying campaign fur continued funding of the MX missile Saturday, saying America’s existing land-based missiles are “sorta like a 1963 jalopy with some new parts.”
Using his weekly noontime radio address to urge Americans to put pressure on the Congress, Reagan said the MX vote, which is still about IO days off, “could be the real key to a successful outcome” of a new round of U.S.-Soviet arms talks beginning in Geneva on Tuesday.
The Soviets, Reagan said, view the upcoming House and Senate votes on MX funding as a key test of American resolve.
“The time is now to send a signal loud and clear that a united and resolute America backs our negotiators in Geneva,” Reagan said. “And that could be the real key to a successful outcome.”
But Sen. Gary Hart, responding to Reagan on behalf of the Democrats, said, “The Soviets already know
we’re strong and determined. ” Calling the MX weak but not cheap, the Colorado senator who lost a bid for his party’s presidential nomination last year said, “We can’t show the Russians we are strong by voting for a missile that’s weak.” Reagan said a defeat on the vote to release funds for building the second batch of an eventual 100-missile force would signal the Soviets that “they can gain more through propaganda and stonewalling than through serious negotiations.”
“There is no easy, cheap way to buy security,” the president warned.
In a continuation of his high-pressure sales campaign for the 10-warhead intercontinental MX, Reagan said that in recent decades “America exercised unilateral restraint, good will and a sincere commitment to arms reductions" while the Soviets continued to build newer and better land-based missiles.
“As a result,” he said, “many of the missiles protecting our security
at this very moment are older than the Air Force men and women taking care of them. They are missiles of the ’60s, originally equipped with 19508-era technology.
“It’s sorta like a 1963 jalopy with some new parts ... In many states, automobiles that old will soon qualify as antiques.”
But the Soviets, Reagan said, “don’t deal in antiques. Their response was the same as ifs always
been: no restraint. Just build, build and build.”
Hart’s response was only coincidentally (Mi the same subject as Reagan’s, since the White House keeps the topic of the president’s weekly radio speech secret and Hart’s was prepared before Reagan went on the air.
The senator, a leading opponent of the MX, said the Soviets realize “we have spent $1 trillion on the military
these last four years. If the Soviets didn’t think we were strong and determined, they wouldn’t have come back to the negotiating table.” Americans are glad that arms control talks are resuming, he said, “and all Americans wish our negotiators early success.”
The Senate is scheduled to vote about March 20 on a resolution to release $1.5 billion for 21 additional MXs.NOTICE
