Day and sunday tag from Page a future of Rhodesia essentially it alms to Avert a White exodus. A state department official stressed saturday that in setting out to work with Vorster for a rhodesian settlement Kissinger made it amply Clear this in no Way would prejudice the american right to dim vow and Asmil South Africa s racial policies Kissinger has mid publicly several times these policies Are unjust and unfair and should be changed. Nevertheless he has. For the time being. It aside any serious attempt to press Vorster to make major changes. One possible explanation is that Vorster May be planning this anyway so is using the time he has bought for himself by helping to stabilize the rhodesian situation. The Kizinger Vorster squeeze play on Smith the Secretary himself indicated to reporters in London Friday could not have worked without British help he stressed it also required the closest possible coordination with the presidents of those four nearby african states which have concerned themselves most with Rhodesia. The four Are Zambia. To Antua Mozambique and Botswana a fifth Angola has been displaying hardly any interest in Rhodesia but has focused mainly on the namibian i South West african problem. Kissinger through Vorster and backed by the South african. Since he visited the subcontinent last March has conveyed a number of truths to Smith essentially they amounted to a simple but Stark message Quot the game is he explained Why the Angola affair showed russians capacity with Cuba s help to leapfrog seas and continents in order to establish a stronghold of communism right in the Center of Africa. Moscow. He suggested was not about to limit its influence and activity to Angola alone but inevitably would look southward where continued turbulence would offer new openings for intervention. A in the Wake of the Vietnam venture. Smith should not mislead himself into thinking any . Administration could Send an expeditionary Force to bail out the White rhodesian if they were to find themselves targets for bloody Mas acres by guerrillas determined to eliminate the last vestiges of White Mastery in fact no Western nation and not even South Africa remembering its failed intervention in Angola would take on the awesome Challenge of involving itself in military action to defend a comparative handful 270,000, of White settlers who had lived too Long and too easily in a state of rebellion. Vorster. According to South african and . Informants augmented Kissinger s messages with arguments of his own. With his own country gripped by rising racial tensions internally the South african wanted to keep his Northern client As free As possible from turning into a scene of turmoil. For More than a decade South Africa had cushioned the rhodesian against the worst effects of the United nations economic blockade. It also had provided paramilitary forces to help beat off Black guerrillas when they first began to attack but now it was enough Vorster insisted. And he translated that policy decision into action during the summer. All South african paramilitary combatants were withdrawn helicopter pilots on loan to Smith were called Home. Imports to and exports from Rhodesia by Way of South africans Railroad system began slowing on the Sacuk that a Large scale congestion of traffic was building up and South Africa had to look after its own interests first these were eloquent enough warnings to Smith that the Days of South african support were numbered. Smith then was faced by two pm Raul realities. The first was that the superpower he thought he could count on to help him hold Back what he called the Onrush of communist influence simply was not going to become entangled in Lusaka last March Kissinger had spelled out the elements of a new . Policy in Africa which Laid Down total backing for Black majority Rule and which demanded a dismantling of South Africa s Structure of apartheid or the separate development of races. The second was that Smiths Only other Felom defenders of White supremacy the South africans no longer were prepared to risk their own vital interests to help the losing rhodesian Caum. Smith s Rhodesia then faced being throttled economically by departing friends and torn militarily by oncoming foes yet Kissinger sought in Advance to Safe the hurtful truth confronting the 2hite rhodesian leaders a senior . Official on his plane told reporters he had in his shuttle and in earlier recon a ism noes won from the presidents of Black Africa this Assurance they would Call off the guerrilla offensive As soon As Smith turned Over Power to a caretaker government with a Black majority in it. The informant said simultaneously Smith was promised the Western Powers with Britain doing the asking and with Black african backing would seek an end of u n unctions and then came the project for a International consortium to be made up of funds from both the Public sector meaning governmental contributions and the private sector meaning multinational and private compare with interests or a readiness to invest in an Independent Rhodesia. That country has untapped Mineral resources and once was the food Basket for most of Central Africa. . British and South african envoys meet in Washington next week to work out the details the facts the figures the rules of the consortium. For the United states it probably will mean that the administration will in due time seek congressional author ution perhaps through a special Bill to allocate Between 9400 million and 1600 million for the purpose Safe Driver Vickie Brooks Perry of 340 dare St., Burlington has been chosen by the Burlington police department and the Burlington civitan club As the Safe Driver of the month for september.

Tanzania s Julius Nyerere and Zambia a Kenneth Kaunda Are critical to a peaceful settlement. If they ref us to accept the pro polls put Forth by Secretary of state Henry a Kissinger and accepted by Smith peaceful transition is unlikely if they become divided with Kaunda and Nyerere backing the Kissinger pro polls and Bel demanding a continuation of hostilities the hard won diplomatic Victory could collapse Kissinger reported significant Progress on Namibia now ruled by South Africa following talks with South african prime minister John Vorster in Pretoria last weekend but there has been no Public announcement that the South West Africa Peoples organization Swap i which is fighting a guerrilla War against the South african rulers from bases in Angola has been invited to participate in a constitutional conference. South Africa has agreed to give the territory Independence on dec 31, 1978, but Many Black nationalist claim South Africa is trying to set up a Quot puppet Quot government of Black leaders it controls Swap s exclusion from any final decision on the Mineral Rich territory s future is almost certain to guarantee continued War. South Africa itself is reeling from its internal racial disturbances it claims that Quot agitators Quot a responsible for the recent note and racial clashes and that the crisis will fade. But Kissinger who met publicly with Black leaders Here made it Clear that the United states will never accept Pretoria s policy of apartheid or Ararat racial development. Vorster has refused in recent policy statements to accept any sharing of Power Between South Africa s ruling four million Whites and its la million Blacks. Instead be has continued to promote his policy of partition. Under that plan South african Blacks Are being gathered into nine Independent homelands or tribal Roa Arves slated for eventual Independence. However the homelands make up Only 13 per cent of South africans total arts. While Vorster s government is making minor concessions in racial policy in attempts to ease the disorders in segregate de Black and mixed race townships throughout the country there is no sign the White minority will Compromise on majority Rule. The idea of a federation of states which might include the Black homelands is being discussed but Vorster and his backers Are insistent that Blacks never gain control Over the nation s Whites and yet peaceful accommodation in Southern Africa one of the most Mineral Rich areas of the world could Lead to an economic Boom embracing Moat of Tho Region. There is Hope that a successful transition in Rhodesia at present considered the trouble spot most Likely to Start a general War could defuse the racial confrontation elsewhere Southern Africa is suddenly profoundly different this morning and because of it there must be a quickening of Hope among All those who Are part of it Quot observed Johannesburg s Rand daily mail on saturday the capital s citizen newspaper wrote the Brave a some will my foolish a Battle of Independence is at an end. Rhodesia has capitulated not to the demands of South Africa and the United states As some rhodesian would have it but to the realities of the situation. But we Hope that with americans involvement in Southern Africa the lifting of unctions and the financial Aid which will now be provided the conditions will be set for a peaceful outcome Quot it mid.
