Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 6, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Vote in Rhodesia Proposal by Britain By DAVID J PAINE SALISBURY Rhodesia AP Prime Minister Ian Smith rejected Saturday British Prime Minister Harold Wilsons for a vote among desias white minority and black African majority on whether they favor independence on the basis of the 1961 constitution I regret to say the impres sion you left with us during Wilsons recent visit to Salis bury of a determined effort to resolve our constitutional prob lems has been utterly dissipat ed Smith said in a letter to Wilson it would seem that you have now finally closed the door you claimed publicly to have opened Smith said Wilson made his proposal in a letter to Smith on Wednesday Smiths reply said I regret to tell you that the only conclusion to be derived from your letter is that it is tantamount to and can only be interpreted as a rejection of the proposals regarding a royal commission agreed with you in Salisbury The reference by Smith to the closing of the door and Fridays dramatic declaration of a coun trywide stale of emergency gave rise to fresh speculation that Smith and his allwhite government may be preparing the way for an early unilateral declaration of independence But Smith was scheduled to leave the capital during the weekend and some observers took this to mean that he did not plan to seize independence immediately Wilson had agreed to Smiths proposal that a royal commis sion decide whether all Rhode sians want independence on the basis of the existing 1961 con stitution Rhodesias 225000
