Rhodesia's Smith gets U.S. visa

Take ten
On the warm, sunny afternoon of October 5, 1968, the Wolverines
blasted the Navy off the football field in a 32-9 victory. Attending the
game was Tonight Show personality Johnny Carson, who, that
evening, brought his late night antics to local fans. But some students
who paid the five dollars to-see Carson complained that his show was
geared to a middle-aged audience rather than college students.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The State
Department announced yesterday it is
issuing visas to Rhodesian Prime
Minister Ian Smith and his three black
allies in Rhodesia's ruling Executive
Council.
Department spokesman Thomas
Reston said the administration decided
to make an exception and grant the
visas "because we believe the visit can
contribute to the process of achieving a
settlement."
RESTON SAID the decision does not
imply an endorsement of the Smith
government, but rather reflects "our
urgent desire to leave no stone untur-
ned, no opportunity ignored, and to fur-
ther our efforts to end the bloodshed
and suffering."
He said administration officials ex-
pect to meet with the Smith group
during their visit here.
The department's decision follows a
two-week tug of war within the ad-

ministration over whether to grant U.S.
visas to the leaders of a regime that the
United Nations regards as illegal.
SMITH AND THE Rev. Ndabaningi
Sithole probably will fly to New York on
Saturday and then come to Washington
early next week. The other two black
members of the Rhodesian leadership
,will come at a later date.
"I am extremely gratified that
Secretary of State Vance is giving the
Rev. Sithole and Mr. Smith an oppor-
tunity-to visit the United States," said
Sen. S. I. Hayakawa (R-Calif.), who
was a leader of the move to bring the
Rhodesian leaders to this country.
"I am glad the American people will
have the opportunity to hear and see
Mr. Smith and the Rev. Sithole so that
they can judge for themselves the sin-
cerity of their determination to move
their nation to black majority rule,"
Hayakawa said.

SMITH AND HIS colleagues applied
for visas last month after they were in-
vited to come to the United States by 27
senators led by Hayakawa.
The administration had delayed a
final decision on the U.S. visa ap-
plications from Rhodesia's new bi-
racial leadership while it examined the
possibility of convening an all-parties
conference, U.S. officials said earlier.
The administration has been reluc-
tant to grant Smith unconditional ac-
cess to the United States, citing United
Nations sanctions against Rhodesia as
well as the possibility of an angry reac-
tion from black African nations.
THE INCONCLUSIVENESS of the
soundings on an all-parties conference
contributed to the delay in a final State
Department decision on the visa ap-
plica tions.
The United States has been in contact

with the so-called "front-line" states in
southern Africa, which have taken an
active role in trying to promote a tran-
sition to black majority rule in
Rhodesia.
Informants reported, however, there
was no consensus among these coun-
tries to convene such a conference and
the idea has been scrapped for the time
being.
SMITH AND SITHOLE originally
were scheduled to come here on Mon-
day but were forced to delay their plans
because of the State Department's. in-
decision on their applications.
The senators who invited Smith and
his colleagues said it was only fair that
they be allowed to present their case. to
the American people since Smith's
guerrilla rivals, Joshua Nkomo and
Robert Mugabe, have visited the United
States several times.

Developers sue to
keep disabled out

DailyOff icial Bulletin.

HOLLY (UPI) - Developers of a new
posh subdivision near this Oakland
County community have filed a $200,000
suit to prevent six mentally and
physically disabled adults from living
in a home in the area.
The suit was filed by the developers
of the subdivision, Roger Roeser and
Pontiac area businessman Carl Lun-
dquist.
THEY OBTAINED a last-minute
court order Monday, temporarily
halting operations of the home pending
a hearing in Oakland County Circuit
Court next Tuesday.
The order was issued by Judge
Robert Templin just one day after the
two women and four men were to move
into the $70,000 new home.
The house was modified for the
women, who were confined to
wheelchairs because of physical as well
as mental disabilities. It has wide
doorways, special bathroom facilities
and outside ramps to accommodate
wheelchairs.
"NEITHER THE developers nor I
have anything against the mentally
retarded," said attorney Donald

Schuster. "We've emphasized that
from the beginning."'
He said his clients, who own and are
selling lots in the subdivision, asked for
$200,000 based on an appraiser's opinion
that the group home would cause "an
immediate and irreparable" effect on
property values.
SCHUSTER SAID the group home
violates the subdivision's deed restric-
tion, which limits occupancy to single-
family, non-commercial residences.
The development is Shiawassee
Creek Farms in Springfield Township.
The 20 lots are being offered for about
$14,000 to $16,500 each, and only a few
have been sold, said Schuster.
