The Palestine Liberation Organization is struggling to hold onto its grass-roots followers in refugee camps across Lebanon as refugees rebel against Chairman Yasser Arafat's moves to open peace talks with Israel. In Rashidiyeh, an impoverished camp near Tyre in southern Lebanon, hundreds of demonstrators marched in protest last month, brandishing rifles, chanting slogans and waving the red, white, green and black Palestinian flag.

The Palestinians are asking for $40 billion in international aid to set up an independent state once a peace agreement with Israel is completed, Yasser Arafat's top economic advisor said Thursday. Mohammed Rashid said the aid would be needed for Palestinian refugees, infrastructure, budget expenditures and an early-retirement fund. Rashid said the Jewish state would not be expected to come up with most of the money, but "Israel should feel and take great responsibility."

Rudolph W. Patzert, 88, a sea captain who ferried Holocaust survivors from Europe to Palestine after World War II. Patzert was captain of the Paducah, one of 10 American ships that participated in the secret rescue mission from 1945 to 1949. The relocations to what is now Israel were opposed by the British and French governments, and Patzert and others had to break through a British blockade of Palestine to deliver the refugees.

The vessel that was attacked, the ferryboat Sol Phryne, had been acquired by the PLO as its much-publicized "ship of return."

The American Cinematheque's Alternative Screen has come up with a lively program tonight at 7:30 at Raleigh Studios with Carrie Ansell's inspired and outrageous "Flushed," which will be preceded by four episodes of Lela Lee's scabrously funny "Angry Little Asian Girl." When it comes to animation, Lee is a minimalist, using simple Magic Marker drawings, but boy does she have plenty to say.
