ThMidqr TFrMty to foods i traditional rigidly-racist policies of the South African government. Coming on top of the liber- ation of the former Por- tuguese colonies of Mozambi- que and Angola within the last few months, the latest developments also deal a severe blow to the white- minority government of breakaway Rhodesia, sandwiched in the middle of the volatile region. At the centre of the current turmoil are three major speeches within the last week: One by Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, another by the South African Am- bassador to the United Nations and a third by South African Prime Minister John Vorster. Perhaps the most important of these was a major address by Kaunda during Zambia's 10th anniversary of independ- ence. In it, he startled inter- national opinion by saying he is prepared with the racist regime of South Africa in settling the con- tinent's future if certain con- ditions are met, a radical departure from past policies. The conditions by Kaunda seem on the surface to be ex- tremely stiff. But many observers believe they may provide a sound basis for negotiation to find a formula acceptable to all parties concerned. He said South Africa should withdraw all its troops now stationed in Rhodesia to help combat guerrilla attacks com- ing mainly from Zambia. At the same time, Rhodesia would be expected to release several important black militants who have been im- prisoned. In return, the Zambian gov- ernment would do its upmost to prevent any future raids by liberation groups across the border into neighboring Rhodesia and would join black and white leaders from there and South Africa in a series of round-table discussions. Within days, Vorster replied: "I welcome any initiative which could lead to the de-escalation of conflict in southern Africa. It would seem that the president of Zambia is agreeable to such action and I welcome it." Then, South Africa's repre- sentative at the UN made what was in effect a disavowal of his country's guiding prin- ciple Racial discrimination as the basis of future development. He went on to suggest that South Africa was no longer completely opposed to the gradual inclusion of blacks in government, an al- most unbelievable switch from the government's' traditional total opposition to any form of racial mixing. There seems to be some skepticism in international circles concerning the sinceri- ty of South Africa's UN remarks since they were made during a time when African and Asian states were moving to try to force the country's expulsion from the world body. Virtually nobody, however, dismisses them en- tirely. South Africa, many think, might even be willing to ease its racial policies somewhat in the future to reach an accom- modation with its black-ruled neighbors. Big divorce settlement Broadcasting magnate George Storer, 74, left, was ordered to pay million in alimony to his third wife Dorothy, 73, right, in what Miami, Fla. court officials said was the largest divorce settlement ever ordered in the United States. Alberta scientists blast each other EDMONTON (CP) The scientific community took raps at each other, and receiv- ed some itself, as a provincial inquiry into use of pesticides and herbicides in Alberta opened here. H. A. Friesen from the Lacombe Research Station accused Dr. D. A. Boag, an Edmonton scientist, of attempting to discredit Mr. Friesen, his staff, and their scientific work He also said Dr. Boag, chairman of the science ad- visory committee to 'the En- vironment Conservation Authority, was trying to "polarize thinking rather than have a rational discussion to get at the truth" in the provin- cial hearings. After he spoke, J. B. Gurba of the provincial agriculture department also took issue with Dr Boag and his com- mittee's reports to the conser- vation authority and its hearings. Even though he had contributed to the work of the committee, he said he wanted to disassociate himself from some of the report. He said Dr. Boag had misrepresented some of the information and the committee report had deleted some information so it did not tell the whole story. During the public question period, Albert Switzer, a chemical company employee, criticized Dr. Boag's com- mittee for claiming that infor- mation on pesticides and her- bicides was not available. Mr. Switzer said he bad found some of the information Dr. FRANKLIN QUOTE Ben Franklin once said: "If you'd lose a troublesome vis- itor, lend him money." Boag sought by asking at the library v A brief read to the hearing from the provincial agriculture department said agricultural scientists "are equally concerned about the environment as are scientists from other disciplines." The science advisory com- mittee, in its reports to. the authority and its statements at the hearings, had been critical of use of pesticides and herbicides. OTHERS DIFFER But the agriculture depart- ment brief said the food and agriculture organization and the world health organization, "having access to all scien- tific data available in the world, continue to recom- mend'the ifse of many pesticides which are being banned or restricted in in- dividual countries." "Not subject to the public and political pressures, they are less likely to over-react to crisis and hysteria and thus are able to make sounder decisions." In new proposals, the scien- tists said an evaluation procedure is needed in Canada for biocides whereby an independent body is hired to evaluate them and report to government. They recommended the govern- ment take action to get infor- mation upon which "more rational decisions could be made" in determining which plants should be designated as weeds. They said an inventory of chemicals, their use pattern and location should be im- mediately established. They said chemical spray- ing of raodsides and power line rights of way should be confined to weeds only. The best to you from Palm. Cottage Cheese.
