(Studio) Reaction to assassination of Lebanon leftist leader Kamal Jumblatt cited.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Mukhtara, Lebanon) Jumblatt lies in state and is buried in Mukhtara where family has been head of Druze community for centuries. With death of Jumblatt Moslems are without leader and Palestinians have lost friend. Arab League peacekeeping force, mostly from Syria, moves into Beirut streets in show of force in wake of murder. It's feared civil war will start again, but probably Arabs won't let it, in order to get to Geneva conf. with regard to Mid. East peace.
