k: Say it isn't so!
The next time you cut the cheese in honor of your favorite celluloid
mouse you better save a piece, because he'll be celebrating his
birthday two months later. Mickey Mouse, the cornerstone of the
' Disney organization, has twitched his whiskers to the birthday song on
September 19 for almost 50 years and they've just discovered the date
is wrong. The cartoon creature's creation should really be marked at
November 18, 1928 when his "Steamboat Willie" made its debut at the
Colony Theater in New York. But when a Disney staffer in the 1930's
thought it would be a good idea for American kiddies to celebrate
Mickey's anniversary, he just pulled a date out of the air. The
confusion has many people up in arms oven when to hold his 50th
birthday party. Whatever date you choose, plan to catch the little
animal on his cross-country whistle stop tour and join in the fun and
parties. White tie and tails required, and of course-ears optional.

Smith to reply to plane downing

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) -
Prime Minister Ian Smith plans to tell
Rhodesia's angry whites in a
nationwide broadcast today how he
plans tp reply to the downing of a
civilian airliner by black nationalist
There was speculation his "new
course" for Rhodesia would include
some form of general mobilization fot
the country's 260,000 whites-many of
whom are in a vengeful mood over the
air disaster a week ago in which 48

OFFICIALS OF clack African states
adjacent to Rhodesia, -articularly
Zambia and Botswana, fear Smith will
order cross-country raids to wipe out
guerrilla bases in their countries.
The forces of Nkomo, co-leader with
Robert Mugabe of the Patriotic Front
guerrilla alliance, are based mainly in
Zambia, Mugabe's guerrillas are
stationed in Mozambique.
Despite the sentiment expressed by
the Kenyan newspaper, which is not
controlled by the government, Kenyan

he said. "It is terrible - ortant that
the ghastliness of ti., war does not
brutalize us, especially the whites, and
blunt our sensibilities to the fact that
the most grievious suffering is still
among the defenseless people in the
tribal trust lands reservations."
A WAR BULLETIN yesterday said
Rhodesian troops killed nine guerrillas

near the area where the plane was shot
down. The communique reported 27
additional deaths in the past day,
including eight guerrillas and
"collaborators," five blacks killed in
"crossfire" between guerrillas and
Rhodesian soldiers and three black
civilians allegedly killed by guerrillas.
The six-year-old war claimed 227
lives last week, the government said.

'It is terribly important that the
ghastliness of this war does not brutalize

persons died. Rhodesia has a black
population of 6.7 million.
LEADERS OF black nations which
shelter guerrillas on, Rhodesia's
borders were reporter to be expecting
imminent attacks against guerrilla
bases in their territory. -
_witnesses said 10 of the 18 persons
who survived the crash of the
CViscount liner in a remote area near
the Zambian border were murdered by
Joshua Nkomo, the guerrilla chief
who met Smith secretly in Zambia last
month in a new bid to end the guerrilla
war, said his men downed the plane
with a missile but denied they
slaughtered survivors. He claimed that
Rhodesia has been using Viscount craft
to ferry military men and equipment.
AFTER THE crash, a minister in
Rhodesia's six-month-old biracial
administration said the transition
government would not be able to meet
its Dec. 31 target for transferring power
to the black majority.
Rollo Hayman, co-minister of
internal affairs, said at least four
months would be needed after
finalization of the as yet unpublished
majority rule constitution before a
referendum and universal suffrage
elections could be held.
In Nairobi, a Kenyan newspaper
criticized Nkomo's guerrillas for
shooting down the plane, saying they
had discredited themselves and
committed a "barbaric blunder."
"WAR IS abhorrent and in itself
barbaric," the mass-circulation Daily
Nation said. "But combatants are
expected th show some measure of
restraint in their conduct. This in
wartime .passes for decency. On this
score, the guerrillas who shot down the
plane and their leaders pass for'
outright barbarians."
The newspaper said the incident
"ruined the nationalist's image" and
"will cause more bloodshed."
Kenya, a former British colony, is
now ruled by its black majority, but has
retained a large white population.

Foreign Minister Munyua Waiaki said
he was alarmed by rumors of a possible
Rhodesian attack into Zambia. The
minister left Saturday for the Zambian
capital of Lusaka and said the trip was
a sign of Kenyan solidarity with
IN LONDON, high-ranking British
and American diplomats met to seek
ways to avoid an escalation of the war.
Foreign Secretary David Owen and
several Americans took part, but
officials refused comment. Zambia has
asked Britain to try to prevent the
expected Rhodesian retaliatory raid.
In Salisbury, Anglican Bishop Paul
Burroughs urged whites not to seek
revenge for the crash of the Air
Rhodesia Viscount airliner.
"It takes the greatest courage of all
to realize the hopelessness of revenge
and the importance of counciliation,"
