High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, High Point, North Carolina . Officials fear spread of non White racism by Louis Halasz North american newspaper Alliance United nations . Uganda a expulsion of its asian residents is casting the embarrassing Shadow of nonwhite racism across the lounges corridors and meeting rooms Here. The africans for their part make no secret of their intense dislike of asians living on their continent. cried Uganda foreign minister j. Iwanuma Okibedi in a press conference a few Days ago a sucking the africans the a a leeches in question 3re people from the Indian subcontinent who were imported from the British Colony to East Africa at the end of the last Century mainly to set up shops and take care of the retail Trade a Job the europeans disdained doing and thought the africans could not do. The imported asians and their descendants number about 80.000 people in Uganda and Over 220,000 More in neighbouring Kenya Tanzania Zambia and Malawi. Uganda president Idi Amin wants them All out those with British passports a some 50,000 a must go within 90 Days and the rest Uganda citizens May be harassed until they also leave. The real danger is that the Uganda example will prove to be arrest ably contagious for the rest of the East african governments so that within months Over 300.000 people May find themselves uprooted and homeless with no country wanting them in. Certainly there is no sign at the United nations that either the indians or the pakistanis would feel any Solidarity with their kith and Kin in need. These countries a a fully understand Uga nday a position a said the foreign minister giving an account of his talks with representatives of these asian countries during the recent unaligned conference held in Guyana. A your discussions were of a fraternal nature with no embarrassment for either Side a he added asserting that african asian relations remained a extremely those watching the developments from the outside but with compassion Fina the Overall picture dark with general inhumanity. The British themselves Are willing to accept emphysema May be hereditary the responsibility for the a original sin of implanting the alien body of asians on african soil. They done to dispute the african charges that by giving these people preferential treatment Over the natives they helped to sow the seeds of afro asian racial antagonism. The african asians remained aloof from the africans while with their traditional business acumen they proceeded to gain control of the key businesses of finance and Trade. Marrying among themselves or importing their brides from the Indian subcontinent they have remained an alien body resented and envied by the africans. When Independence arrived to the East african countries the bulk of the asians took advantage of the British offer of retaining their British citizenship thus offering t h e ultimate affront to africans celebrating Freedom. And the africans while allocating to the British the ultimate responsibility for the ugly business do not appear to care that the subjects of the mass expulsion Are themselves like the africans victims of White colonialism. With utter nonchalance they seem to be saying that racism practice against africans is a crime but practice by them could even be a virtue. While the african and asian diplomats prefer to behave in Public As if nothing untoward was happening at All the Secretary general cannot afford the luxury of closing his eyes. A the unwritten moral responsibility which every Secretary general bears a he wrote in his introduction to the annual report released Here a couple of weeks ago a does not allow him to turn a Blind Eye when innocent civilian lives Are placed in jeopardy on a Large his words seem to be tailored to the plight of East africans asians whose livelihoods if not lives Are threatened with extinction. Asked what he planned to do his spokesman said Waldheim was a in touch with the High commissioner for refugees a and intended to keep in touch with High commissioner Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan of Iran a in the Days to by Dick Kleiner Duarte Calif. Nea More and More medical researchers a i e uncovering genetic traits in disease. Apparently some ethnic groups Are More prone to one while other groups appear More susceptible to another. Or. Jack Lieberman has discovered what he Calls a an inherited disposition to pulmonary emphysema the lung disease which is becoming increasingly common As smoking and other lung irritants increase. Lieberman a work is Only one of several medical genetics projects being carried out at the City of Hope medical Center Here. He is in charge of the centers pulmonary biochemistry Laboratory. Lieberman says the first indication that emphysema might have an inherited Quality was uncovered in a research project in Sweden a decade ago. The initial breakthrough indicated a recessive Gene was responsible and the swedes who did the work estimated that possibly one per cent of emphysema cases were genetic in origin. A it was treated As a medical curiosity that Sall a he says. Lieberman took it More seriously however. First at the veterans administration Hospital in Long Beach Calif., j and then Here at the City of Hope medical Center he began studying emphysema patients. He found at Long Beach that of 66 Emp Hyse victims 26 per cent had a deficiency in their genetic makeup. And among those patients who were 50 years old or younger the percentage went up to 50 per cent. At the City of Hope his figures have been almost identical. His studies apparently indicate that the genetic form of the disease is responsible for approximately half of All emphysema cases. And what is perhaps most curious about the research thus far is that there seems to be an ethnic or National derivation to these defective genes. He has found that most often the affected individuals come from a Northern euro Pean background a English Irish German French scandinavian. He has rarely found it in people whose heritage is Black italian jewish mexican or american Indian. The problem seems to lie in a protein a Alpha-1 anti trypsin a which is part of the chemical make up of the Gene. By testing for anti trypsin deficiency Lieberman is Able to detect Early signs of emphysema. He thinks it is possible too that the remaining 50 per cent of emphysema cases a those who do not have this anti trypsin deficiency in their genes a will prove to have some other genetic defect Lieberman a Hope is that ultimately a screening process can be set up at the Junior High school level which would identify those youngsters who have the anti trypsin deficiency. They would thus be warned to take care with their lives and to keep away from smoking or from living in smoggy areas or from working in places with lung irritants a All factors which heighten the susceptibility to emphysema. Curiously while emphysema affects the lungs the protein appears to be manufactured in the liver and it is trapped in that Organ in those with the rent a Wurlitzer piano immediate delivery per month i Pearson 8 music co. 224 North Elm Greensboro him a a i a Dutton phone 885-5323 genetic defect. In these cases the liver apparently fails to release the anti trypsin it produces. Lieberman believes that the future holds the possibility that a full or partial liver transplant May alleviate the problem. And that would create the singular curiosity of a liver transplant being prescribed for a lung disease.
