the Croats are showing their discon tent because they feel they contri bute a large share of the Yugoslav economic but receive only a morsel in return from the federal government in The first uprising which turned into an anti Communist has been followed by more of the same since Tito returned to The redoubtable aging president has been making preparations for several years now to provide for a collective leadership when he is no longer on the scene to run the But the very fact that uprisings of this nature are taking place while Marshal Tito is still very in u c h are an ominous indication of things to come when he isnt Fragmentation of a nation which he has done so much lo is the Marshals could be come a reality in the near A resident correspondent of Uie London Lajos says blunt ly that the Yugoslav Communist party is disintegrating and that Tito himself is losing The only people who would cheer at this pros are the who might very well pick up the Lord Goodmaiis defence By Jane HiiLkvalc npHE London Observer has published a lengthy letter by Lord the man bid Ihe ground work for the proposed British indepemlcncu agreement with Lord Goodmans defence of the agreement which has

Europeans then recognize that their survival in Rhodesia can be only as lung as they can maintain themselves by terrified vigilance and dwindling No those of hopelessly en trenched believes that the proposed Rhodesian settlement is a conscious and deliberate betrayal of the African t is on reading Lord Good mans yet defence to believe that he is But when he says that African mass opin ion is to be gauged by mass meetings held in the tribal areas at a system public meetings controlled by chiefs who are loy al to the regime can we believethat this is a true and honest method of arriving ai the conclusion He admits that almost uilhcut Africans are qualified to form a considered individual Then what is the matter with a secret ref erendum uhich would allow them to do just that And why arc ihc
