Premier Smith, head of the white-minority Rhodesian gov- ernment, had argued lhat inlim- idaiion of Africans by Africans van so widespread lhat the sampling of black opinion hy the Pearce commissioners rep- resented a distorted picture. The commission, headed by 71- year-old Lord Pearke. acknowl- edged there was some inlimida- both this was insufficient to influence the overwhelming verdict. CRITICIZES REPORT In Salisbury, Smith immedi- ately condemned the Pearce re- port, charging it with misrepre- sentation. He maintained there would be no more bargaining with Britain. His government would continue wilh ils existing policies uliich some British offi- cials fear may lead to hardened apartheid, or racial separation. On the black side, Bishop Abel Muzorewa, chairman of the African National Counc! ;said his supporters were jubi- lanl.

Premier Robert Bourassa told the Quebec national assembly that the federal-provincial-mu- nicipal conference, Ihe first in C a n a d a 's history, does not present any danger to Quebec's exclusive jurisdiction in munici pal affairs. Maurice Tessier, Quebec's municipal affairs minisler, sail the conference will be helc1 "wilh total provincial autonomy in mind concerning municipa mailers." No decisions would resul from the talks, he said, and fis cal problems would not be dis cussed. The conference voted Tuesday lo ask the provincial and fed eral governments lo distribute a portion of personal income lax lo the mnnicipalilies based on the taxpayers' place of resi- dence. Corporate income lax should be shared under an equalization formula taking into account re- gional differences in municipal evaluation. ELECTED PRESIDENT i Mayor Desmond C.
