Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Dtctmbw 14, 1974 Rhodesian sides had arms twisted By KEVIN DOYLE The Canadian Press The Rhodesian government's sudden agree- ment to hold a constitutional conference on Rhodesia's future is a triumph for the mediation efforts of white- ruled South Africa and black- ruled Zambia. In announcing that the white-minority government will free all black political prisoners in return for a ceasefire in the Rhodesian guerrilla war, Prime Minister Ian Smith, informed sources say, was simply echoing a for- mula virtually forced on him by South African Premier John Vorster. His decision to begin talking to black nation- alist leaders appears to have been similarly inspired. And it seems to have been Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda who twisted the arms of the Rhodesian blacks and convinced them to agree to a constitutional conference ATTENTION CATTLEMEN WHITE BOLD RANCH BOW ISLAND, ALBERTA Will Hold A DISPERSAL SALE Of Purebred Percentage Charolais Fri., Dec. 20th Commencing at noon Including: 30 BRED HEIFERS (av. 1100 Ibs.) 60 BRED COWS (3 to 8 years) by blood lines of Pepl, Athos, Desire A Castor, and Brad to blood lines of Blggarreau Bachus.

But the whole issue raises the question of why Vorster, a committed white racist, and Kaunda, equally committed to black-majority rule in Africa, have acted in the ways they have. Smith's role is clearer. Rho- desia could not survive the in- ternational economic blockade against it without the help of South Africa. It was also heavily dependent on South African military aid in the war against the guerrillas. Smith, observers say, had to submit to South African pres- sure because of this and he un- doubtedly believes he can do so and still prolong a con- stitutional conference and hinder any real progress to black-majority rule indefinitely. For Vorster's part, his interest in promoting peace in southern Africa seems real enough. But it appears to have been Portugal's granting of independence to neighboring Mozambique earlier this year and the rise to prominence of the Frelimo liberation move- ment there which spurred him to action. The possibility was growing that Frelimo would eventually close its ports to Rhodesian traffic and step up sharply its raids against white Rhodesians. If that happened South Africa could not have avoided the consequences. South Africa already has 000 policemen fighting alongside Smith's forces against the guerrillas in Rhodesia and the numbers would undoubtedly have to get much larger if fighting in- tensified. Within South Africa, Frelimo threatened to become a kind of charismatic force among the country's black majority if relations worsened with Mozambique. In addition, South Africa's United Nations membership hangs by a string and it seem- ed certain that if Vorster had to get more deeply involved in a kind of Vietnam-like en- tanglement in Rhodesia, the connection would be severed completely. Finally, Mozambique and black-ruled Malawi provide well over half the labor force for South Africa's gold mines and there was a growing danger that eventually this might be withdrawn if Vorster was unable to improve the political climate swiftly. Kaunda's motives are clou- dier but appear to be largely motiviated by economic con- cerns. In the first place, the 1973 closing of the Rhodesian border to Zambian traffic has placed a tremendous strain on Zambia's economy since most of its import-export traffic had previously moved through Rhodesia to Mozambique ports. Alternative arrangements are not nearly coping and the higher costs, coupled with the falling price of a staple Zambian export, copper, have made times hard for Kaunda's economic planners. South Africa used to be Zambia's main supplier of consumer goods and is still the cheapest source. But Zam- bia now boycotts trade with South Africa. If this market can be reopened without Kaunda losing face, it would bring major economic benefits. THE Sunday Crossword iformerK the New York Herald Tribune Crossword) Edited by Robert B.

Legislature adjourns REGINA (CP) The 1974- 75 session of the Saskatchewan legislature ad- journed Thursday for an indefinite period, following 11 sitting days that saw few ma- jor government bills in- troduced. The major bills presented by the government would give judges more discretion in dis- putes over marital property, allow the province to par- ticipate in federal stabiliza- tion programs for agricultural income and give farmers a fuel tax implemen- tation of a spring an- nouncement. By contrast, pre-Christmas sittings of the previous ses- sion saw bills to impose controls on oil profits, change -constituency boundaries, start a legal aid program, set up an agricultural machinery testing institute and require businesses to give employees three weeks' annual paid vacation.
