this has been one of our best years said Porter Kissinger says US Latins good partners c New York Times Atlanta Secretary of State Kissinger declared Saturday the policy of the good partner as the new United States approach to Latin America and the Caribbean World has already seen enough of pressure groups exclusive Addressing the general assembly of the 23member Organization of American States Kissinger said that we in the United States have come to realize that a revolution has taken place in Latin America As a result he said we can vene as equals He hailed the new dialogue that he said had begun among foreign ministers of the hemisphere since he became Secretary of State seven months ago He pledged closer con sultation with Hie OAS members on monetary and trade issues and in international conferences called to deal with food shortages and population con tnol We jointly proclaim our cooperative actions the policy of the good partner he said A United States official alluding to the policy enunciated by Franklin D Roosevelt more than three decades ago said fl goodpartner is a relative of the good neighbor Explaining the new definition Kissinger said With our great material and technical resources we were often tempted to do for others what we thought was best for them That attitude no longer shapes our relationship We in the United States hav e come to recognize that a revolution has taken place in Latin America Industrialization and modern communication have transformed economic and social life This is why our new dialogue is not a confession by the United States but a necessity for us all But while stressing our special relationship Kissinger warned that it could not mean the formation of an exclusive Israeli labor minister could succeed Meir c New York Times Tel Aviv Yitzhak Rabin 52 the Minister of Labor emerged1 Saturday as the favorite to suc ceed Mrs Golda Meir as Prime Minister of Israel after he received the support of Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir Sapir told a delegation of I mayors and local trade union leaders thathe will nominate Rabin at todays meeting of the Labor Partys central com mittee Mrs Meir resigned April 10 President Ephraim Katzir has asked the Labor Party the largest in Parliament to recommend a candidate to form a new government Shimon Peres Minister of Information announced ms candidacy for the party nomination earlier last week Foreign Minister Abba Eban said Friday that he was con sidering running but he dropped out Saturday after Sapir did not support him bloc The world has already seen enough of pressure groups ex clusive spheres and discriminatory arrangements he said In conttrast to other speakers Kissinger did not include Cuba in his concept of hemisphere cooperation Speaking for Argentina Foreign Minister Alberto J Vignes demanded a review of the 12yearold OAS policy of boycotting Cuba Calling it unrealistic and anachronistic obsolete and creating dangerous tension Perus foreign minister General Miguel de la Flor Valle also spoke of the continuing isolation of Cuba as an obstacle to the renewal of interAmerican relations which weakens the in stitutions But these observations and similar remarks on behalf of Cuba expected from other delegates were taken by US officials as more or less perfunctory and as an indication that substantive treatment of the Cuban issue would not take place at the Atlanta meetings SIU system on hot seat of state centralization t nf mwornine boards consolidation fo governing to mate By Dave Butler Of The Southern Illinoisan The Southern Illinois Uni versity system soon may find itself in the middle of a power struggle in state higher edu there be more or fewer governing a question and position SIU may want to avoid If SIU is in the center the system may be used by pro ponents of both sides an example of why campuses should be separated or more consolidated and better con trolled by the state SIU apparently gets the hot spot because the legislature already is considering a plan to separate the Carbondale and Edwardsville campuses end create a new board of trustees for SIUE This action comes as inter nal problems continue to plag ue SIU system and just before the state begins a re view of state review many educators be lieve will lead toward central ization The main question seems to be how far Cameron West the new executive director of the Illinois Board of Higher Education is prepared to go in consolidation higher educa tion Is West planning to shuffle around the commuter schools under one board medical schools under another and others under still another Or does he have something else or even no changes in mind Hes not saying For SIU the question of external governance al though not a new been absent recently as in ternal conflicts linger on SIU itill ifl trying to decide who should have control under the present setup The SIU board will reexamine the sit uation again in May to decide how much independence should be given to the two campuses within the current framework In any case the governance review will be done soon and SIU should be prepared trustee William Allen of Bloomington warns Allen who has been con cerned with external govern nace for some time told the board earlier this month that SIU must reexamine its state role He also said that the cur rent not per be the best there is Some states have indivi dual boards for each campus and others have a single board I think has More about Cameron West and higher education master planning Page 28 good system and everyone may not realize that we have the best he said The question of governance is expected to come up later this year after schools and the state begin developing a new master plan for higher education West conducted a similar review in NorthCarolina be fore coming to What he did ing one master state govern ing some Illinois educators including many at SIU a bit worried Allen said ha question of governance should be discussed only after tiie mission and master plan are completed We have to decide what each school is to do before even thinking about who should govern them he said No single board could spend enough time to determine the problems at all of the univer sities Allen said But Id oppose a board for Edwards ville and each campus in the state A former representative to ttie higher board Allfen has been involved in examining roles of governing boards He was on the buard of gov ernorsbefore being appointed to the SIU board Once missions are agreed upon maybe we shouldtake a look at putting like universi ties together under tie same board Allen said Im not saying I favor that but we should at least look at it Boards have developed his torically and not rationally on which campuses they gov ern he said Of course there are major differences between the Edwardsvillfe and Carbondale universities just like there arebetween the ChampaignUrbana and Chicago Circle campuses The state currently has five governing SIU Uni versity of Illinois Board of Regents Board of Governors and the Junior College Board Among the nonbelieveri in consolidation fo governing boards is James M Brown chief of board staff for SIU and current head of the sys tem Hr said he thinks it is un likely that the boards will be consolidated and equally un likely mat they will be se parated SIU board chairman Ivan A Elliott Jr of Carmi agrees What they said they do not know is whether West plans to propose the shuffling of campuses within the state we should explore the health related campuses like SIUs and thte Chicago medical school Allen said can make a good case for grouping But before that happens Al len wants to make sure that all sections all boards have played a part in the review And also wants to mate sure that the uni versities the public and the state agree on the missions of the various schools Allen said he wants to see public input into the role of SIUs future He is not sura how tte public should be in volved because we dont want the higher board to think were trying to drum up pub lic support before they even see what we propose Well have to wait and see if they have public hearings We definitely want the area people involved but dont know how best to do it SIU plans to have new mis sion and goals statements ready by July 1 Apparently the public will not be directly involved in preparing or exa mining the statements until after they are sent to the higher board for considera tion ;
