Salim Hoss, a Sunni Muslim who has been a voice of moderation through 14 years of civil war in Lebanon, returns to the prime minister's office for the fourth time in 13 years to try to end the fighting. The 59-year-old economist is a firm backer of democracy, a free-wheeling economy and Christian-Muslim coexistence. He is married to a Christian. Hoss' main asset is the wide respect he commands among both Christians and Muslims.

If Lebanon has been slowly, agonizingly strangled by 13 years of intermittent civil war, as many Lebanese believe, then events of the past month may prove to be the final death rattle of this pathetic, baffling nation. For the first time since independence in 1943, the country is without a president--not even a relatively powerless leader like Amin Gemayel, whose six-year term of office expired Sept. 23 without a successor having been chosen.

The head of Lebanon's Muslim-led government appealed for peace negotiations after a 10-hour artillery barrage that turned parts of Beirut into an inferno. "A solution for Lebanon should not be negotiated through violence and guns but through dialogue among Lebanese," Acting Premier Salim Hoss said. Meanwhile, the head of a rival Christian government, Maj. Gen. Michel Aoun, accused Syrian gunners of trying to assassinate him by shelling the presidential place in suburban Baabda.
