C. 1M1NICLIER KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) Its an old saying here that a man who chases two rats catches neither. President Idi Amin has been chasing rats wherever be sees them, or imagines them, end the results are sometimes ironic. Amin, who comes from a small tribe in the northwest, has ruled this African country by decree since overthrowing Milton Obote as president two years ago. He is erratic, unpredictable and in a sometimes this has things moving in cir- cles. A soldier who once fought on the side of the British against the Mau Mau in neighboring Kenya, Amin now is telling Af- ricans to "spread rumors, kid- nap prominent persons and spread distrust and confusion to bring down while minority gov- ernments in southern Africa." At the same time Amin has been using military courts and firing squads to people here who spread rumors, dis- trust and confusion or carry out murders and kidnappings. EXPELLED ASIANS Last November, Amin or- dered Asians expelled on 90 days' notice, permitting them to take practically nothing with them, although some had lived here for generations. Their an- cestors had built the Uganda railway, the lifeline to the sea, and developed the country's commerce and industry. Determined to Africanize the economy, Amin sent them anc many whites packing. He took over their estates and busi nesses. With his actions and the deteriorating security situation the white community droppet to from in Jiv months and is continuing t fade. But, less than two month after his hasty action, Amin ac nutted in an interview that h __badly needs foreign help uniforms present were those of keep his economy afloat and train Ugandans to run com merce and industry, repair m chinery, leach the young an heal the sick. At his inaugural garden par two years ago, the only Jorei 12 Israeli pilots, present with their miniskirted wives. Amin threw out his Israeli military advisers, and all other Israelis, last spring, setting a precedent in Black lie still proudly wears the parachute wings he earned in Israel in earlier days. HAS QUEEN'S PICTURE Amin later kicked out a Brit- ish military training team and irritated London to the extent that it cut off million in pending financial a large framed portrait of the Queen, whom he still affec- tionately refers to as his former hangs in his liv- ing room, Last month lie turned on Kenya, through which his road and rail links to the sea pass, warning that he would expel enyan tribesmen living in ganda. Amin, is a simple man who ne African statesman says lacks philosophy or ideology nd advocates reform, without ecessarily thinking out each :ep. "But he genuinely thinks he is oing the statesman dds. He is a very intelligent man whom people keep under stimating." He succeeded in unifying the country against "a common getting quick military aid from Libya and perhaps others, and eradicating oppo nenls last fall while proclaiming hat Uganda had been invaded )y Tanzania and mercenary roops. He saved his country millions by changing currency over a 35. day period, and searching all incoming persons and parcels- including diplomatic to prevent the return of money illegally taken from the coun- try. Some thought the currency move was merely to get Us pic- ture on bills, but it saved money. HE'S FOR NO ONE 'I think he is pushed, and then he may lean far going lo the Russians or the Chinese." Interviews with African, Arab and European diplomats here and elsewhere in Africa found all in agreement that like many heads of state In newly-independent less interested in his own glory than in turning Uganda Into a truly black state. Amin realizes that power re- mains with the man who con- trols Uganda's army. He has enlarged it considerably. Amin's decrees come over Uganda radio sometimes two or three times a day. Some are vague, others specific, such as one order that all employees be paid within 24 hours so they could celebrate the second anni- versary of his coming to power. He fired fcur members of his cabinet recently, saying: "They are not bad men, but they can- not copo with the speed at which the government of Uie second republic is going on." Prehistoric spacemen idea spiked says a diplomat. "He is trying to do things very quickly. He is rash and makes many mis- should not have acted so quickly with industry. But he leans on no. one, unless he is I TORONTO (CP) Mexi- can Indian statues thought to represent ancient space- men probably pictured foot- ball players instead, a To- ronto professor says. Dr. George Owen, chair- man of New Horizons Re- search Ltd., said in a speech here that a race of Mexican Indians who between and B.C. were "nuts for ball games" and played a form of foot- ball dressed in helmets and stone padding in 1-sbaped stadiums.
