Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wodnnday, Aunuil 13, 1972 THf LETKBDIDOI HWAID _ 43 History no aid ill Smith dilemma lly KliVIN DOYLK LONDON The Brit- ish government has little to learn Iiom history in Its latest settle Itie lingering, explosive problems caused by Rhodesia's unilateral declaration of independence. In fact, there is only one precedent in the centuries-old story of the liritish Empire: tho United Stales independ- ence declaration in ]77G. An Anglo-American fol- lowed liml move before Brit- ain finally extended recogni- tion to the new republic in 1JJS1. Economic sanctions fol- ioxved the Rhodesian hrcak but their effectiveness has not been great. Recognition of the whilc- rulcd African territory still is nov.'herc in signf. liritish Prime Minister Ed- ward Heath and bis Conserva- tive government are studying tho reactions of Rhodesia's majority hlack population to the latest proposals for an An- Elo-Hhodesian settlement. A .special survey of Rhode- siati reactions, carried out by the Pcarcc commission, was sponsored last January by the British government. But the. commission, which has sub- mitted ils report to Heath, is expected to declare that set- tlement terms are unaccepta- ble to Rhodcsian blacks who outnumber the whiles 20 to one.

Mr. Leosori, who is also a New Democratic PETty candidate 1 Kdmonton Slralltcona, said Mi1 examples al snrcJ because they could have been "edited out by the teach- er." 'Hie matter was trivial "be- cause it sidesteps the more im- porlant issues." "At the university level liave whole depnrlmenLs wilh little or no Canadian material, ju-'il ;m occasional Amer- sfiid Mr. Ixiesnn in a Pews released, beyond liiis, tiici'e is the problem of a of ic.scarch money in our univer.silies, specifically direct- ed lo research and lo produce Canadian lexlbooks for oil levels of education, and a lack of n Canadian press lo publish them. "It Is snrely an example of misplaced emphasis to dwell at length on this issue, when there are many more pressing areas of foreign conlrol." Rhodesia was one of Brit- ain's last colonial acquisitions and It never rested comforta- bly within the empire em- brace. The uneasiness of Kho- dcslans increased as Britain's other colonial possession were granted Independence [rom London. The first white settlements consisted of employees of Cecil Rhodes' British South Rhodesia in the 1890s to search for gold and diamonds, minerals which Rhodes had found in abundance In what now is South Africa. The colonisls quickly estab- h'slied the practice of white minority rule, laying the groundwork for their future confrontations with Britain. For Rhodes and the British government of the day, the extension of his firm's activi- ties into Rhodesia offered tho additional advantage of cut- ting off any northward expan- sion by the Dutch in the rebel- lious southern African colony of Transvaal. The Transvaal problem fi- nally led Britain into the Boer War in 1899. FEDERATION FOLDED In the early 1920s, in the lull following the First World War, Britain held a plebiscite among the while Rho- desian settlers to determine whether they wished to join the relatively-new Dominion of South Africa or receive full status as a British colony. A small majority of whites fa- vored colonial status. The blacks were not consulted. In 1951, the Conservative government of Prime Minister Winston Churchill approved a three-country federation for central Africa to include the territories now known as Zambia, Malawi and Rhode- sia. But the forces demanding full independence grew too strong to be contained and in the federation was dis- solved. Zambia and Malawi were granted independence with majority black rule. Rho- desian whites refused to aban- don their hold on local govern- ment. Negotiations dragged on with Britain until November, 1905, when Rhodesian leader Ian Smith declared the area's independence. The then Brit- ish prime minister Harold Wilson and his govern- ment denounced the move as illegal but Wilson immedi- ately made clear he would not use force against Rhodesia. Labor ministers, now in op- position, concede that in retro- spect it was a fundamental error of diplomacy lo tell Smith that force would not he used. At the time, Wilson con- tended that since Rhodesia was a landlocked territory, British naval power would be useless against it The British armed forces feared a drawn-out land war in central Africa that might involve the forces of while-ruled South Af- rica as well as those from Rhodesia. Eventually, Britain decided to seek United' Nations back- Ing for a campaign of eco- nomic sanctions against Rho- desia. The UN approved tho trade measures but the main effect seemed to be lo solidify white support even more strongly behind Smith.
