the free world. It goes without saying,"
he said in the interview aboard a
jetliner carrying his from New York to
Rev. Ndabaningi Sithole, one of three
black Rhodesians who share power
with Smith in his "transition gover-
nment," added that "all exchange of in-
formation is good. We feel the United
States must lead in southern Africa as it
does elsewhere."
Smith, in a news conference before
leaving Salisbury recalled that former
U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
had proposed in 1976 the arrangment he
is now trying to effect=a turnover of
power by year's end to Rhodesia's 6.7
million blacks, with guarantees for the
260,000 whites who have controlled the
"THE AMERICANS sold us this in
the first place," Smith said. "Now that
we have implemented it, we are going
to go back and-try to sell it to them. It
should be easy,'shouldn't it?"
Yet no one was more aware than the
prime minister of the Carter admin-
sitration's official distaste for the
solution offered by Smith, whose
government it has never recognized

since the break from British rule 13
years ago.
The United States now supports, with
Britain, an "all parties conference"
that would include the leftist rebel fac-
tions of the Patrioctic Front that are
waging guerrilla warfare against
Smith's biracial government.
THE INVITATION extended Smith
by 27 senators led by Sen. S. I.
Hayakawa (R-Calif.), precipitated a
struggle within the Carter ad-
ministration over whether visas should
be approved for the representatives of a
governmetn the United Nations con-
siders "illegal."
Those favoring the visit finally
prevailed, however, and Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance went a step further
by consenting to meet with Smith. ,
In a sign of official displeasure,
however, the Armyand the State
Department denied him permission to
lay a wreath at the Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier in Arlington National
Cemetery. They said such an action
would imply a partisan effort to in-
fluence U.S. policy.
WHILE HAYAKAW and his Senate.
colleagues actually extended the in-

vitation to Smith and Sithole, the idea
originated with two conservatively:
oriented organizations, the American
Conservative Union and the American
Security Council, both of which support
the Rhodesian initiative.
The latter was playing host to Smith,
Sithole and their entourage at a private
estate near this hamlet in the northern
Virginia foothills.
Smith's visit was expected to last a
week to 10 days. While all stops have
riot been determined, California was
scheduled tentatively after Smith
Because of Smith's identification
with the Rhodesian issue, organizers of
the trip privately admitted concern that
he would dominate the spotlight during:
this effort to gain American support for:
his cause, to the detriment of Sithole as
representative of the blacks.
For that reason, they sought to en-.
sure that Sithole-once held in deten-
tion in Rhodesia for plotting Smith's
assassination-would participate
equally in all events including an ap-
pearance on a network television inter-
view program today.

they not be named publicly, were
unanimous in saying the wins give the
president new political strength and in-
crease the likelihood of further vic-
But some fear, as a top-level adviser
put it, that "The state of euphoria
around here could disappear as quickly
as it appeared."
Another said it is possible that if Car-
ter misses a step or two, "he'll deflate
like a balloon."
A THIRD, MORE optimistic aide said
Carter could now afford to lose a fight
or two, and might even gain strength in
the polls if he is seen as fighting a
good-although losing-fight.
"You don't get much credit for losing
if you never succeed," he said. "But af-
ter you win a few, you can get credit for
just trying to do what's right. The
public knows you can't win them all."
This aide said the White House
staff was humming efficiently last
week in an all-out lobbying drive to
sustain Carter's vote of the $10.2 billion
public works bill. Indeed, House
Speaker Thomas O'Neill Jr. described
the successful lobbying effort as an

members of Congress are now paying
increasing attention to the president's
veto threats and are checking their
spending proposals with presidential

But there remains below the surface
a suspicion that the old Georgia crew
around the president still isn't as ef-
ficient or capable as a president's staff
ought to be, and that this could trip him
up in the future.
One lower-level aide related this:
story: After Carter's Mideast triumph,
pollster Patrick Caddell told Hamilton
Jordon, the president's top political
hand, "The Camp David summit was a
personal triumph for the president, and
it will increase his standing with the
public and with Congress. But you've
still got the same boobs on the staff as
newfound strength, his aides say he is:
steadfast in his vow to impose his own
brand of fiscal restraint on Congress.
He'll certainly veto a bill to grant in-
come tax credits for college tuition,
they say, and may well disapprove an
election-year cut in income takes,;
especially if it is anywhere near the
$29.7 billion cut being considered by the
They say Carter can expect further;
boosts from good news that is expected
soon, including the scheduled signing
this week of the civil service revision
bill and an Egyptian-Israeli peace
treaty promised before Christmas.
And, by the end of the year, Carter
expects to conclude a SALT II
agreement with the Soviet Union:
limiting strategic nuclear weapons.

Syria orders end to
shooting in Lebanon

(Continued from Page 1)
on Israel to end its support for the
Lebanese Christians.
Many diplomats fear that continued
fighting here and a deeper involvement
by Israel might threaten the likelihood
of peace under the Camp David accords
between Israel and Egypt.
INTENSE MORTAR and artillery
fire rained down earlier yesterday at a
rate of one shell a minute as Syrian ar-
tillery units in west Beirut pounded the
eastern sector, once the home of 600,000
Christians. Two-thirds of the residents
have fled the area.
The Christian rightist Voice of
Lebanon radio said new battles had
begun in the city's northeastern quar-
ter, which is cut off from the rest of the
capital by roadblocks and snipers. The
broadcast said the Christians were
assaulting the Qarantina and Beirut
River bridges and were drawing heavy
retaliatory barrages from Syrian field
artillery and rocket positions around
-the city.
"The random shelling has set off at
least three new huge fires in the Dora
area near the Qarantina," the broad-
cast said. Dora is the site of the main
fuel-storage compound that feeds,
Beirut's Christian enclave. The huge
tanks have been ablaze for nearly a
week and black smoke covers much of

the Christian sector and the neigh-A
boring Beirut port.
POLICE SOURCES said at least 85
Lebanese had been killed and 200
wounded since Friday, bringing the:
casualty toll for the past week to 500:
dead and 700 wounded. Christians
claimed Friday that more than 800 had
been killed and 3,000 wounded.
Lebanese Moslems, who teamed up
with Palestinian guerrillas against the
Christians in the 1975-76 civil war, have
stayed out of the Christian-Syrian con-
frontation in Beirut.
-The Syrians make up the largest pait
of the Arab League peacekeeping army
that intervened on the side of th$
Christians to halt the civil war. Besidet
wanting to disarm the militias and
establish control over the Christian
sectors, the Syrians are also unhappy
with the alliance the Christians have
formed with ,Israel in southern
There has been no official ex-
planation for the latest Syrian offensive
against the Christians, which erupted in
earnest last Monday. The Syrians con-
fined their operations to a steadily in;
creasing barrage from artillery,
rockets and tank cannons, but
speculation was that the bombardment
might be a prelude to a large-scale
ground assault.
