Minister Ian Smith is still run-
ning one of the most prosperous-
looking countries in Africa, two
months after declaring Rhodesia's

Two Broad Functions
This job and others fall to the

to members of the University, and
to maintain the University's rela-
tions with the public.
The first includes giving direct
service tosindividuals, faculty and
staff, and academic and research

To maintain and generate the -
level of support this institution
requires, Radock believes that "the
various publics must understand
and appreciate the unique nature
of the University."
As an example, it was pointed
out that although the University is
a state school, only about a third
of its financial support comes
fro, state appropriations. How-
ever, this is the most important
fraction, because it provides the
basic support for instructional
purposes, for faculty and staff sal-
aries, instructional equipment, and
a myriad of other items. -0 5 5 '
