MANILA, Philippines (AP) —
The government and rebels resolved
a dispute over weapons Tuesday, re
moving the last obstacle to a truce in
the Communist insurgency that has
plagued the archipelago since 1969.
Spokesmen for President Corazon
Aquino and the rebel National Dem
ocratic Front said the 60-day cease
fire would begin at noon today (10
p.m. Tuesday CST) as scheduled.
Both sides said the agreement
provides that armed guerrillas will
not enter “population centers” and
soldiers will not confiscate rebel
weapons during security patrols.
One of Aquino’s first acts after be
coming president last February was
to free political prisoners, including
some former Communist leaders, as
part of a “national reconciliation”
that also involved seeking a cease
fire with the rebels.
She said there was no reason for
them to continue fighting because
President Ferdinand E. Marcos had
fled the country.
Defense Minister Juan Ponce En-
rile said she was too soft, and there
were reports of coup plots by mili
tary officers loyal to him. She fired
Enrile on Nov. 23.
The last-minute negotiations over
the cease-fire stemmed from a mili
tary threat to seize illegal weapons,
including those belonging to the
Communist New People’s Army that
were found in “security operations.”
Agreement came several hours af
ter the military said rebels killed five
people in an attack on the southern
island of Mindanao.

Israeli soldiers
shoot 2 youths
during protests
BIR ZEIT, Occupied West Bank
(AP) — Israeli soldiers shot and
wounded two Palestinian youths
Tuesday and clubbed others who
were among more than a thousand
people marching to protest the kill
ings of Arab students.
Four Palestinians have been killed
and 27 wounded since clashes be
tween Palestinians and Israeli sol
diers began Thursday in the Israeli-
occupied West Bank of the Jordan
River and Gaza Strip.
In New York, the U.N. Security
Council passed a resolution Monday
condemning the violence, and on
Tuesday Egypt criticized the “violent
repressive measures.” Egypt is the
only Arab country that has signed a
peace treaty with Israel.
The Israeli Parliament debated
three motions of no confidence in
the government of Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir for its handling of
unrest in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, which Israel' captured in the
1967 Middle East war. The motions
came from both the political right
and left and were defeated by the co
alition government of the conserva
tive Likud bloc and socialist Labor
In the Gaza Strip, troops shot a
16-year-old protester in the head
when he tried to grab a soldier’s rifle
at the Bureij refugee camp, an army
spokesman said. The youth was in
serious condition at Tel Hashomer
hospital, the spokesman said.
Another Palestinian teen-ager was
slightly wounded when troops fired
at stone-throwing demonstrators in
a refugee camp near Bethlehem,
according to the army.

can women are postponing marriage
longer than ever before, tying the
knot later than even their great-
great grandmothers of the 1890s,
the Census Bureau reported Tues
The typical first-time bride is 23.3
years old when she goes to the altar,
the highest median age for women
to marry since the government
started keeping that statistic in 1890.
And the median age of 25.5 for
their bridegrooms hasn’t been
topped since 1900, according to the
bureau’s study, “Marital Status and
Living Arrangements: March 1985.”
Addressing a wide variety of top
ics the study also reported that:
• The number of unmarried cou
ples living together has leveled off at
about 1.9 million after skyrocketing
in recent years, confirming a prelim
inary finding issued a year ago. New
figures, due out later this month, are
expected to show a small increase for
• There were 128 divorced peo
ple per 1,000 people living with their
new spouses, up from 47 per 1,000
in 1970. The ratio for men is 103,
compared with 153 for women, be
cause men are more likely to re
marry after divorce and do so
sooner than women.
• More than one American adult
in 10 lives alone, triple the number
since 1960, although the rate of in
crease slowed in recent years as
tighter economic conditions discour
aged young people from setting up
their own households.
Indeed, among peopleajf£ ;

Study reports growth of low-wage jobs
than half the 8 million net new jobs
created between 1979 and 1984 in
the United States paid less than
$7,000 a year while the number of
jobs paying $28,000 or more actually
fell, according to a new study.
The report also said the middle-
income share of job growth dropped
from 64.2 percent in the 1970s to
47.5 percent in the early 1980s.
The two authors of the study —
Barry Bluestone and Bennett Harri-
sion, political economy professors at
the University of Massachusetts-Bos-
ton and Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, respectively — said the
proliferation of low-wage jobs points
to growing U.S. income inequality.
“If this pattern of development
continues,” they said, “the standard
of living of a growing proportion of
the American workforce will be sig
nificantly jeopardized.”
Citing Census Bureau data, aud
using the Consumer Price Index to
account for inflation, the authors
said they arbitrarily divided workers
into three income categories:
