A group of City officials and business Leader Are running the committee to rebuild Atlantic City the focus of pro Casino efforts. Resorts International a Florida based corporation with hotels and a Casino in the Bahamas has contributed to the committee and has spent another on its own. Resorts International also has purchased the Chalfonte Hadden Hall hotel and announced plans to build a , ?50 million hotel on the Boardwalk. Resort International has been under close Federal scrutiny because of alleged underworld connections but no charges have Ever been filed against the company. There is opposition to the gambling proposal and it is led by new Jersey churches. The largest group called casinos no objects to Casino gambling on moral grounds and says that Atlantic City would become a Haven for underworld lawlessness if gambling comes to town. A recent poll by the Eagleton Institute of politics at Rutgers University showed the november ballot measure has the support of 59 per cent of the state s voters with 36 per cent against and 4 per cent undecided.

I think Casino gambling will attract new capital Here which is perhaps the greatest need of he said.

The decline of Atlantic City s Conven Tion business because of a loss of our first class hotel rooms is another reason for his support Lazarow said. Gambling would mean new hotels and More conventions. For Rhodesia plan pro Western by Arthur l. Gashon associated press writer Washington a an american British plan to keep a Black ruled Rhodesia tied by Money and politics firmly to the West for a Long time emerged in some detail saturday. It was designed to insure that the failure of the Western Powers to counter soviet cuban intervention in neighbouring Angola is not repeated in the emerging new state of Zimbabwe the new name chosen by Blacks for Rhodesia. The plan according to diplomats of three key nations involved forms the dollars and cents costs of trying to induce Blacks and Whites in the break away British Colony to live and work together in what could become an Independent thriving Rhodesia after Power is transferred. It foresees the set up of an International consortium ultimately with Between billion and s2 billion to spend for development Aid and other forms of support Over roughly the next generation. Helping the United states and Britain with projections and analyses of a Black ruled in dependent Rhodesia s Likely needs have been the South africans. Although they have declined to contribute to the scheme they have provided the americans and British with their own View of what the country will need the moment leaders of the six million Blacks take Over command from Premier Ian Smith s regime which rests on the support of Whites. The american British plan which is Likely to have the backing of about a dozen industrialized pro Western nations will not be dumped on the negotiating table in Geneva oct. 21 when talks for a rhodesian constitutional settlement Are formally opened by the British. Instead they will be kept ready for of Mesenta Tion if the conferees who will include Smith agree on the formation of an interim or caretaker government. This government will have the Job under a Black prime minister of leading the country through election to in dependence no later than the fall of 1978. Thus it will be up to that interim government to ask its american and British sponsors for help. The scenario already will have been written. American and British envoys will say in effect yes we happen to have some ideas ready and Here they Are one British authority explained we Don t want to appear As if we Are thrusting our program of Aid and development Down the throats of the emerging new state of Zim Here is the Way the International consortium will work according to american British anti South african informants now and the Day an interim Black dominated rhodesian regime is formed the americans and British will rally pledges of sup port from Friendly nations which already have been sounded about their willingness to cooperate. They include besides the americans and British France West Germany Belgium Holland key scandinavian countries Japan Australia Canada new zealand. Most have agreed in principle to consider pitching in without committing themselves to precise amounts. Now and the time for decision various big companies will be asked to Ponder what they Are prepared to contribute toward a program of concerted Aid Trade and development. Objective will be to raise anything Between and billion that would be available not Only for investment and develop ment but essentially As one British authority put it to insure a smooth transition from White to Black parallel objective will be to encourage As Many As possible Rhodesia s White civil ser vants technicians Farmers and others with talents to stay on in the country not to quit As refugees in order to make their talents available so that the new state of Zimbabwe will have a fair Chance of an orderly transition. A senior British Diplomat summed up the Over All objective by recalling what British prime minister James Callaghan s statement last March 22. Many african leaders have reiterated their Strong desire that those europeans who Are prepared to put their Faith in Rhodesia should re main in that he told parliament.
