A News Analysis By ARTHUR L. GAVSHON WASHINGTON (AP) - A closely    coordinated squeeze play by Secretary of State Henry’ A. Kissinger and South Africa’s    John Vorster has emerged among the chief factors that forced Rhodesia’s white leaders to yield power to the black majority. The secretary of state and the South African prime minis ter also made deliberate use of several facts of life in a skillful exercise to bring about the surrender    of the independence Premier Ian Smith's regime defiantly claimed ll years ago. These conditions, according to U.S. officials who traveled with Kissinger on his 12-day peace safari through sub-Saharan Africa, included: —The ever-escalating guerrilla campaign mounted by black    Rhodesian nationalists who have been armed by the Russians and are being trained by Cuban instructors in neighboring Mozambique. The ever-present likelihood that 10,000 Cuban fighting troops still in Angola could intervene if any white Rhodesian counteroffensive made things too hot for the Zimbabwe (Rhodesian) People's Army known as ZIPA. —The unanimous intelligence assessment by American. British, South African. French, and moderate black African authorities that Smith, without outside help, could not break through the tightening ring of forces closing in on his landlocked country. This assessment was passed on to him by Vorster in the weeks and months preceding Kissinger's shuttle. —The promise of a big international trust fund, of up to $2 billion, to reconcile black ambitions with white fears for the future of Rhodesia. Essentially it alms to avert a white exodus. A State Department official stressed Saturday that in setting out to work with Vorster for a Rhodesian settlement Kis singer made it amply clear this in no way would prejudice the American right to disavow and assail South Africa's racial pol lcies. Kissinger has said publicly several times these policies are unjust and unfair and should he changed. Nevertheless he has. for the time being, set aside any serious attempt to press Vrrr-■ter to make major changes. U.N.

Both issues have been kept out of the assembly by Arabs and Africans. The early consensus on Waldheim results partly from a desire among big powers to avoid the divisive and painful struggles of past years. Waldheim was chosen In 1971 because he was the only one of 12 candidates to avoid a big-power veto. His atrongest appeal was that he came from a small country with impeccable credentials as neutral, democratic, Socialist and developed. Hu candidacy is now buttressed by a solid record. Even so, hopefuls and favorites are waiting in the wings in the unlikely event that Waldheim most TEHRAN.

The U.S. Embassy said it had received no off leis! word from the Iranian government about Lht man’s request for political asylum in the United States. Th# Soviet Embassy con. firmed that a pilot baa defected but gave no details. The Soviet plans landed near the town of Ahar, Ai miles s< uth of the Soviet border, official sources said. Travelers from the area quoted the pilot a., saying he wanted to spend the rest of his life in the West "ie describe to the world how the Soviet dissidents are suffering.’* He also was quoted as saying he "could mn put up with the system any longer." Tehran newspapers said Zachmiov made his escape on a mail fi ght from tiflis, the capital of Soviet Georgia, to Umbrae on the Caspian Sea, in So viet Azerbaijan. to fight until a transition gov ernment acceptable to him was formed. Agreement by Smith’s government carried two conditions — an end to the four year-old guerrilla war and the luting of United Nations economic sanctions imposed atter the Rhodesian leader declared the country independent ll yeari ago. Officials at the United Nations said action on tha sanctions must come from the Se cui lty Council which imposed them and that it must be proposed by Britain, which requested them Warmed Rhodesian government sou roe i said the first meeting between black and white leaders might come as early as next weak, and tha new government could be operating in a month or so. -Luis Ecneverria, who finishes his term as president of Mexico this year, is the only hopeful who has openly reached for Waldheim s Job.

But the dapper bacneloc from Sri Lanka failed rn the 1971 race, and Westerners would probably be susf icious of hie country's Socialist line. Other names frequently bandied about include Tanzanian [Ambassador Salim A Salim; Argentina's popular Ambassador Carlos Ortii de Rozas, who got tile most votes in 1971 but ran into a Soviet veto, and Pakistan a Ambassador Iqbal A. Akhund, president of the Economic and Social Council. One possible explanation is that Vorster may be planning this anyway so is using the time he has bought for himself by helping to stabilize the Rhodesian situation. The Kjssinger-V orster squeeze play on Smith, the secretary himself indicated to reporters in London Friday, could rot have worked without British help. He stressed it also required the closest possible coordination with the presidents of those four nearby African states which have concerned themselves most with Rhodesia. The four are Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Botswana A fifth, Angola, has been displaying hardly any interest in Rhodesia but has focused mainly on the Namibian (South West African) problem. Kissinger, through Vorster and backed by the South African, since he visited the subcontinent last March, has conveyed a number of truths to Smith. Essentially they amounted to a simple but stark message: "The game is up." Flash Flood Ends Drought LONDON (AP) - A picture hook fishing town rn southwest England was a sodden mess Saturday after a flash flood broke morths of drought. Police said one man drowned. cars were overturned and buildings *:hoked w' T mud by a wall of water that raced from parched hill! through x valley and surged through the south Cornwall resort community of Polperro on its way to tha sea. In Somerset county, 125 miles west of London, hundreds searched for a three-year-old girl who was last seen leaving a candy shop shortly before the thunderstorm hit. Mete orologists said more heavy rain was expected over tha week «id. The drowning victim was Wilfred Haycock, 81, part owner of the Mill House Hotel. Restau rant manager Teresa Cooper said Haycock was haloed out of the hotel with a number of guests, when a sudden n«w surge of water swept him down to the harbor to hie death. Polperro, which aas a popu lation of 1,400, was Uttered with wrecked care, some flung upside down into a stream beside the anciert Crumplehorn Inn Classrooms In the town school were smashed and muddied by two feet of swirling water, said car< iker Dick Jolliffe. The country around Polperro was one of the driest parte of Britain in the worst drought in 500 years. Despite rains this month reservoirs remain low and water restrictions are still in force. Roads in South Yorkshire county and eastern England were under water after heavy rain Friday night. Officials said parts of England could stlU he seriously short of water next ye-r, even if rainfall is normal this winter, because rainfall over tha past 16 month* was one-third below the normal average.

Both were, at last word, being treated at Washington Regional Medical Center for injuries sustained in the 5:27 p.m. accident. Fayetteville police patrolman Mike Mitchell said it was not yet known why the two fell out of the pickup, but that the woman apparently fell out first and that Reed then fell on her.

The presence in the United States of many Mexican workers who enter the country illegally and the treatment they receive is also of "great concern,” he said.
