WASHINGTON (JTA) - The Reagan Administration believes that the Syrians want to negotiate a withdrawal of their troops from Lebanon but on their terms. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency has learned that this is the feeling of the Administration despite the lack of progress made during special Mideast representative Donald Rumsfeld's three- and-a-half hour talk in Damascus with Syrian President Hafez Assad. Rumsfeld reportedly .told the Israelis later that chances for an Dr. Robert Chazan Scheduled To Serve As Tifereth Israel's Scholar-ln-Residence Judy Blair and Marilyn Fishman, chairwomen of the Adult Education and Special Events Committees of Congregation Tifereth .Israel, announce that the Fifth Annual Scholar-in-Residence Weekend for Congregation Tifereth Israel will -be held -on Jan. 27-29.

Assad has made it clear that* he wants Lebanon to abrogate its May 17 agreement with Israel and for Israeli troops to pull out of Lebanon before he will consider the withdrawal of Syrian troops from that country. At his meeting with Rumsfeld, he reportedly added the condition that the United States withdraw its troops too. The Administration be- lives that a major concern of Syria with the May 17 agreement is that it will make Israel the protector of Lebanon. Syria sees itself as the protector of Lebanon. Syria Does Not Want To Absorb Lebanon The U.S. does not believe that Syria wants to absorb Lebanon, something that is believed in Israel. Instead, the Administration noted that when Lebanon and Syria were removed from the control of the French in 1946 the Syrians agreed that they were two countries but one people. At the .same time, the Syrians maintained that they will not let Lebanon be used as a base or corridor for an attack "on Syria. The U.S. had accepted that Syria has long played an influential role in Lebanon. It is believed here that Syria wants stability in Lebanon and that is one of the reasons its army first went into the country in 1976 at the request of the then Lebanese government. But the Administration i; arguing that the security arrangements that, are now being negotiated between the various factions in Leba- World Renowned Flutist To Be Special Guest At Friends Of Hillel Reception Making final arrangements for this weekend's Scholar-in-Residence Program at Tifereth Israel are Evelyn Nateman, Adult Education coordinator, Tifereth Israel, and Iu.bbi Harold Berman.

Syria is believed behind the groups opposing that agreement. However, Syria also opposes the May 17 agreement as part of what it sees its role as the leader of the Arab/ world.
