MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1889 Canadians See Their Country As Galm Oasis h Most Would 'Rather Here than Ddwn There' By EDWARD COWAN NIW York fimw Una linl TORONTO Although there ii no scarcity of problems in this vast and almost untapped land, Canadians, for the most part, look on their country as some- thing of in oasis of'calm in desert of turbulence. War, urban crises, shaky cur- rencies and congestion are'only until pan of the Canadian scene.

Canada's Indians and roughly Negroes, though still denied equal opportunity, make up little more than 1 per cent of the population of 21 mil- lion.

WHITING MUFULIRA, Zambia (AP) Members of the fanatical Lum- pa church are reported trickling back across the frontier from the Congo. Some Lumpas fled Zambia In 1854 following a "holy war" with government troops that left more than 700 dead on both sides. They drifted north to refugee camps near the Congolese village of Mokambp to await instructions from their prophetess, Lenshlna-Mu- lenga. Alice Is now detained In Zam- bia's Bartose Province, and the Congo and the U.N. High Com- mission for Refugees have been prodding the Lumpas to resettle in three areas. Some apparently fear reprisals from Zambians who suffered because of their rebellion. Offered Amnesty Zambia offered the Lumpas amnesty last year If they agreed to return home and keep the peace. Lumpa deacons r jected the offer unless the go eminent agreed to release'Ali and lift the ban on the church. Alice has been held since A gust 1964 except for one escap two years ago.

Many difficult decisions lie ahead for the appointees to be named by President Nixon. It is time to treat the posts of the .USIA and VOA directors with more seriousness than has been the case in recent years. The VOA, after all, has to re- President Johnson, resigned U.S. culture and political By JACK GOULD NIW York sirviot NEW the pres- sure of making many major de- cisions, the administration of President Nixon is not likely to place the fate of the Voice of America on its high priority list. But as soon as possible, the well being of the United States instrument for radio communi- cation with the rest of the world should be examined to in- sure its maximum effectiveness. The post of director' of the Voice of America has not been filled since the resignation of John Charles Daly; Richard Cushing is acting director. Sim- ilarly, Robert W. Ackers is act- ing director of the U.S. informa- tion Agency because Leonard H. Marks, a close friend of November. The fate of the parent Infor- mational Agency and its radio child should not be subject to the vagaries of politics. Even a suggestion of permanence in Its structure would be conduc- tive to organizational efficiency. Tlje matter should not be al- lowed to drag on. The Voice of America is, in many ways, a greatly misunder- stood operation because its ra- dio programs in 36 languages lire: not heard domestically ex- cept by shortwave radio en- thusiasts. But in terms of inter- national politics, its significance is much more obvious. China Is Second The Soviet Union, for instance, transmits hours of pro- gramming a week on a global basis. Communist China is sec- ond with a total of hours and the United Arab Republic third with 950 hours. The Voice's weekly output is approximately 900 hours, putting the U.S. in fourth place. The annual budget of the Voice Is J3S (jnillion, which meets the expenses of approxi- mately employes in the U.S. and 900 working around the world, maintaining relay sta- tions in other countries. Probably one of the most im- portant developments in the evolution of the VOA-is the re- broadcasting of its program on attitudes and at the same time win an audience overseas. Such an assignment is not al- ways easy. When a nation as powerful economically and mili- tarily as the U.S. propagates Its opinions, they can be receivi with builtin skepticism by fo eign audiences. In most countries of the worl radio ,is a direct arm of go ernment. That condition hoi true for the VOA.

On a global basis, upwards of medium stations use the VOA from time to time, which means its news and entertainment are heard easily in foreign coun- tries. In Latin America alone stations carry VOA material by direct beam or by specially prepared of tape re- cordings. By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) From an office on S.

Schifrin, an Intense, dark haired pipe smoker, is the hot- test new composer in films to- day. His album of themes for "Mission: Impossible" won him two Grammles from the record ing academy and a gold record having sold more than a .quar- ter-million copies. His score for 'Cool Hand Luke" netted an Os car nomination. Among his other recent scores: "The "The Broth "Hell in the "Coogan's Bluff."

The VOA operates a medium-wave station in the Marathon Keys of Florida and its programming is regularly "jammed" by the Cuban government to hamper reception in Havana.

She said she was resur- rected three days after dying of fits. During her brief sojourn in heaven, she said, she met a white god and a more powerful black god and was told to return to earth as bearer of a purifying message. She continued working for the Church of Scotland, but on the side began baptizing children and taking tribal charms and fe- tishes from people by promising them immunity from witch- craft. By 1955 she was leader of a new sect called Lumpa, a Bem- ba "tribal word loosely translat- ed as "better than others." She told followers not to drink, smoke or curse and to obey her implicitly. Alice had between and followers by 1964 when she clashed with the govern- ment.
