INTERNATIONAL Beirut, Lebanon Israeli jets pounded a populated area Friday morning in an attack on the headquarters on two Palestinian guerrilla organizations. The attacks, the first on the Lebanese capital in more than three years, represented an end to the Israeli policy which sought to avoid hitting civilian targets. Local authorities said the death toll was over 300. In Washington, President Reagan reacted to the raids by postponing a decision on whether to deliver F-16 jets to Israel. The first wave of planes struck at the headquarters of Al Fatah, a faction of Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization. Jets also struck at the pro-Russian Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, blowing up the front of their building. A guerrilla spokesman vowed revenge, and later in the week northern Israeli towns were hit several times by artillery fire coming from Lebanon. Warsaw, Poland An emergency Communist Party Congress met, voting in secret for the first time ever in the Soviet bloc, and delivered an overwhelming victory to moderate party chief Stanislaw Kamia by re-electing him. The Congress also rejected both left and right extremists ex-tremists and instead elected mostly moderates to the Central Committee. Seven out of the 11 members of the ruling Politburo were deprived of those positions by being ejected from the 200-member committee. The congress expanded the Politburo to 15 members, mem-bers, and elected its first woman Zofia Grzyb, a member of the Polish labor union Solidarity. Kamia was facing opponents from both the right and left. But after the congress voted a large number of unknown moderates to the party's par-ty's Central Committee, opposition melted away almost overnight. Kamia received 1,311 votes, compared to 568 for Kazimierz Barcikowski, another moderate who ran against him as a token opponent. , Peking Flooding from the rain-swollen Yangtze River has killed more than 3,000 people in the country's most populous province. Two million people have been in affected in Sichuan province, many stranded on roofs or trapped in isolated towns, another 50,000 have been injured, and officials said rains are still pouring into the 3,340-mile-long river. . The flooding generated 18-foot waves which rushed downstream to strike the Gezhouba Dam. ; The structure held firm, but water rushing through spillways and sluice gates could still pose a threat to rice and cotton fields further down the river. Officials said that many who died were trying to save property or rescue animals. A relief agency in Taiwan, meanwhile, has promised to send food, medicine and clothes. Ottawa, Canda A summit meeting of the Big Seven Democracies here concluded with a diplomatic victory for Ronald Reagan, who persuaded per-suaded his allies to adopt a hard line toward the Soviet Union by condemning the Russian military buildup. The leaders also agreed to a meeting later this year which would consider restrictions on exporting strategic goods and technology to the Soviets . In other discussions, Reagan agreed to consult with allies before he formed any anti-inflation policies that might cause high interest rates in other countries. Japan, which has been slammed for keeping out foreign products, agreed in principle prin-ciple to free trade during a discussion on trade barriers and how to remove them. The seven countries meeting were the U.S., Britain, France, Fran-ce, West Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada. Rome Mehmet Ali Agca admitted to shooting Pope John Paul II, but the Turkish terrorist said little else to an Italian jury. Agca said he should be tried by a Vatican city court. He refused to answer further questions and threatened to go on a hunger strike if his demand for a Vatican trial was not met. The prosecution brought in 16 witnesses to establish that Agca was the man who shot the pontiff on May 13. A letter found in his hotel room said he planned the shooting as a protest against U.S. involvement in El Salvador and Russian intervention in-tervention in Afghanistan. He claimed no political motivation, but said, "People whom I will not name have financed me." Belfast, Northern Ireland An IRA spokesman said Monday that hunger striker Kieran Doherty is near death, a development which could threaten the government headed by Prime Minister Garret Fitzgerald. Doherty was elected to the Irish Parliament on June 11. If he dies, observers say, another IRA prisoner-parliamentarian, Paddy Agnew, would consider resigning. If the opposition party, Fian-na Fian-na Fail, filled the two vacant seats, if would have an many seats in Parliament (80) as the ruling coalition headed by Fitzgerald. Since the IRA is in a position to help or destroy the present administration, ad-ministration, it could pressure Prime Minister Fitzgerald to push for British concessions to their demands. Mexico City Be glad you live in Utah. A new censorship law in Mexico not only forbids the photographs of nude women on the front and back covers of publications, it also bans adventure adven-ture stories in which the bad guy wins, and also stories with characters that "degrade or rebuff" the Mexican people. Defenders of the bill say it replaces an even more repressive older law. NATIONAL Kansas City, Missouri Two giant walkways plunged to the bottom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel killing 113 people-the worst single disaster in American history except for its worst aviation crash. The tragedy involved a series of walkways stacked up above the hotel's ballroom. The fourth-floor bridge collapsed Friday night, struck the second-floor span, and both toppled down upon the 1,500 patrons attending a big-band dance on the bottom floor. A third walkway cracked when the others f ell . A structural engineer investigating the disaster said the collapse may have been prompted by people dancing or swaying to the music on the walkways. Hyatt Hotel president Pat Foley said the bridges could hold a capacity crowd, but the president of the company which supplied the steel beams for the bridge said, "it appeared the walkways were made for light traffic." traf-fic." There were miraculous rescues a boy and his parents were hauled from the rubble. But there were grisly discoveries, too. Thirty-one bodies were found under a concrete slab. Victims who were standing on the second span were found between the walkways . Jacksonville, Florida The government filed espionage charges last week against an ex-soldier ex-soldier who led an alleged double life as a U.S. Army warrant officer and an honorary colonel in the Russian army. Joseph George Helmich, 44, was arrested in his parents' home a week ago Wednesday on four counts of selling coding information in-formation to the Russians in 1963 and 1964. Helmich, who now works as a tile installer, could receive life in prison if convicted. But at his arraignment last week, he pleaded innocent to the charges. The government claimed Helmich sold parts, service manuals and other information to the Soviets on the KL-7 coding Cryptosystem, which he operated during his Army service from 1954 to 1966. The indictment said he first contacted Russian agents when he was stationed in Paris in 1963. But as late as last year, Helmich allegedly met with Soviet agents and received payments for activities deisgned to cover up the conspiracy. con-spiracy. A former employer said Helmich told him last year that he expected "to come into a lot of money." Los Gatos, California Growers rushed to beat a quarantine deadline imposed by five southern states against California crops infested by the Mediterranean fruit fly, as Medfly officials prepared to finish the first round of spraying over the San Francisco peninsula area. Two major supermarket chains, Safeway and Lucky Stores, also announced they would not be using crops from the three-county infested area. Gov. Jerry Brown was blasted for not acting earlier to start aerial spraying, which was advocated ad-vocated as long ago as November. One entomologist en-tomologist said the spraying effort now had less than a 50-50 chance of succeeding. Washington Postal union officials who thought they had reached a contract settlement in the wee hours of Monday night came back Tuesday morning and announced they were "had." But they instructed postal workers and mail carriers not to stage a walk-out. The postal contract expired at midnight Monday and was extended by negotiators on an hour-by-hour basis. Moe Biller, president of the American Postal Workers, and Letter Carriers head Vincent Sombrotto said they had reached a verbal agreement with the Postal Service at 2 a.m. EDT. But five hours later the two angry men said a typewritten version of the contract differed dif-fered from the earlier understanding. "We are angry because we don't like to be had," said Biller. Both men said they would return immediately im-mediately to the negotiating table. Washington The Senate Intelligence Committee Commit-tee began probing the financial problems of CIA director William Casey, while the White House said President Reagan was not informed of Casey's problems before his appointment because they were not considered worthy of Reagan's attention. In a May 19 ruling, a federal judge in New York said Casey knowingly misled stockholders as the director of a failed New Orleans farming concern, Multiponics, Incs., and helped drive the company into bankruptcy. Reagan said he had complete trust in Casey. Another controversial aspect of the case involves in-volves Max Hugel, a businessman appointed by Casey to head the CIA's clandestine service. Hugel resigned after the "Washington Post" printed charges that he had engaged in stock manipulation in 1974. Virginia Beach, Virginia A man who hacked his mother-in-law to death with a hatchet in her garage told police he hit her because he mistook her for a large raccoon. But Orvall Loyd said even after he realized his mistake, he hit the woman, Mrs. Margaret K. Wise, - again. "I.. .snapped or something," Loyd said. An autopsy showed Mrs. Wise was hit in the head with the hatchet 17 times. A local judge found the evidence sufficient to forward a murder charge ton "!! wHnrv.
