(Ulrich's has alarm clocks, too -- or they can fix your old

BY MICHAEL ARKUSH
Jonah Muskwe, a representative of
the Zimbabwean African National
Union (ZANU), slammed Rhodesian
Prime Minister Ian Smith's "internal
settlement" last night and vowed the
black lib ration group will "go on with
the war struggle."
"We are now at the hard line and
we're fighting for death and we can't
give up," Muskwe said before a small
crowd at the Michigan Union.
MUSKWE SAID that Smith's plan,
which has been accepted by some of
Rhodesia's moderate black leaders, is
only an attempt to secure American
support in order to provide his country
with the necessary materials to
eliminate the blacks' threat.
The ZANU spokesman, who arrived
in the United States in 1962, added that
Smith's recent trip to this country was
aimed at garnering support from the
American people for his negotiating
stance.
"It's so important that everyone
revolt against Carter to support Ian
Smith. That is why he came. For-
tunately, he never got the hoopla and
support he wanted," said Muskwe.
UNDER THE prime minister's plan,
Rhodesian blacks would be guaranteed
majority representation in Parliament
for ten years. After that, the Rhodesian

ace plan .
people would vote on whether they ap-
proved of the new system.
But Muskwe denounced Smith's plan
as a "sly trick" which is intended to get
Rhodesia international support.
"What if they don't vote to keep the
settlement. Then we go back to
colonialism. This was a trick the whole
world wasn't supposed to see, but we in
ZANU saw it from the beginning," he
insisted.
MUSKWE ADDED that Smith is "a
deranged, mentally insane person" and
is impossible to negotiate with.
"Everything to him is black and
white. He was brought up like that. To
him, every black man is a boy and he
can't be deculturized in 10 years," he
said.
The ZANU spokesman also praised
the organization's army which is
struggling for survival in Mozambique
and Zambia: He said the Western
media failed to document the warfare
in Mozambique because Smith's
soldiers were thoroughly thrashed.
"That how powerful ZANU is. They
don't fight in armies of 30 - that would
be quite large for them," said Muskwe.
HE ALSO promised that the
liberation struggle in Zimbabwe (black
name for Rhodesia) will be the "laun-
ching pad for South Africa."
ZANU is a non-racial group dedicated
to establishing a democratic system of
representation in Rhodesia. It has been
leading the armed struggle since its in-
ception in 1963.
Last night's lecture was sponsored by
the Washtenaw County Coalition
Against Apartheid (WCCAA), an Ann
Arbor-based organization devoted to
forcing universities and corporations to
divest their holdings from South Africa.
Muskwe substituted for the scheduled
speaker, Tirivafi Kangai, ZANU's chief
representative to the U.N., who had to
remain in New York for important con-
sultations.

Although all three Michigan Tisch
Coalitions assert they are still pushing
for the passage of Proposal J, members
of the Southwest branch have taken a
publie stand contrary to that of the
proposal's founder, Robert Tisch, by
urging voters to back Richard
Headlee's Proposal E as well.
Beth Tisch, speaking for her
husband, who was in bed with 'the flu,
said Tisch does not feel the group's
stand will threaten the passage of
Proposition J. She believes those mem-
bers of the coalition who support,
Headlee are''very few."'
SOUTHWEST Michigan Tisch
Coalition Chairman Mel Newmiller
charged that "Bob Tisch is guilty of
gross misrepresentation and he is
public nuisance number one." But
Newmiller also said the coalition recen-
tly affirmed it is "100 per cent for
Proposal J."
According to Newmiller, Tisch wants
a tax slash, but "is not knowledgeable
of his own petition's language."
Newmiller said he believes the Tisch
plan would result in a tax shift - from
property taxes to other forms of
taxation - rather than a cut. -

To assure a tax cut, Newmiller said,
the Headlee amendment would have to
be implemented as well. The Tisch plan
calls for a slash in property taxes and a
limit on income tax increases, while the
Headlee proposal would curb state
spending in general and require voter
approval of any subsequent tax hikes.
NEWMILLER said the coalitions
have not received contributions from
businesses because "there are no
businesses that will come out for them
- they know it (Proposal J) will be a
tax shift on them.
The Tisch workers have collected just
over $7,000 during the campaign, con-
tributed almost exclusively by private
citizens, according to State Tisch
Coalition treasurer Carol Tuckerman.
Less than $1,000 was remaining in the
campaign account as of last Friday,
Tuckerman said, and a portion of that
sum must be used for unpaid bills. "We
should about break even, I think," at
the end of the campaign, the treasurer
predicted.
Michael Freese, Ann Arbor
spokesman for the Southeast Michigan
Tisch Coalition, said his group concurs
with Tisch in opposing the Headlee
amendment.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Three-way
negotiations among the United States,
Egypt and Israel resumed after a 10-
day lapse yesterday amid signs of op-'
timism in the Middle East peace talks.
The goal at the Blair House session,
led by Secretary of State Cyrus Vance,
was to complete a treaty between
Egypt and Israel by compromising dif=
ferences over amendments proposed by
both sides..
SOURCES SAID Vance would meet
tomorrow in New York with Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who
will be on an unofficial speech-making
visit to the United States.
The principal issue in dispute is how
closely to link peace between Egypt and
Israel to subsequent four-way
negotiations over the future of the West
Bank of the Jordan River and Gaza as
well as the territories' 1.1 million
Palestinian inhabitants.
Jordan and Palestinian Arabs have
not agreed to participate in those
negotiations. Egypt, protecting Arab
interests, has demanded a solid link to
Palestinian aspirations. Israel, con-
sidering the two sets of talks to be
basically separate, wants a weak link.

At a party yesterday with Likud Par-
ty members marking the award of the
Nobel Peace Prize, Begin said "a num-
ber of serious obstacles have been
overcome' .in the Washington peace
talks and it was possible that the treaty
would be signed quickly.
Houdini
(Continued from Page 1)
"We gave it the noble try and struck
out," said Bill Lund, seance organizer
and owner of the museum.
The thumping sound turned out later
not to be of Houdini's doing, but rather
a telephone company construction crew
working nearby. As a change of pacer
from past futile seances, a tray holding.
Houdini's favorite snack of lox and
bagels was placed inside the milk can,
the same container he used to escape
from. However, the tantalizer failed to
coax the stubborn magician's ap-
pearance. Holding the seance in
daylight and at the very moment of his
death did not help either.
"HOUDINI always said anything
mediums and spiritualists could do in
the dark, he could do in broad
daylight," Lund said. He said he had
expected the seance to be of little suc-
cess.
"It wasn't done tongue-in-cheek,"
Lund added. "It was a sincere effort.
He may have shown up in Austria or
Singapore, but he sure wasn't in Mar-
shall, Michigan.".
Four occult researchers claim
Houdini appeared before them in
Detroit's Grace Hospital yesterday
where the great escape wizard died in
1926.
DURING HIS career Houdini was
billed as the "man who could walk
through walls" and make a 10,000
pound elephant disappear from a
theater stage. But he is remembered
mostly for his spectacular escapes,
freeing himself from anything: milk
cans, straight jackets, or jail cells. In
1916, an estimated 50,000 people wat-
ched him escape from a straight jacket
in Chicago as he dangled upside down
from a rope, three stories above the
ground.
Houdini's career came to a tragic end
in 1926. As part of his act, the magician
dared people to slug him in the stomach
claiming he would feel no pain. After a
show in Montreal, a college student, not
realizing Houdini had to tighten his ab-
dominal muscles, caught the magician
off guard with three solid blows to his
midsection.
Houdini died three days later in
Grace Hospital of a ruptured appendix.
He was 53.
Despite all of his great escapes, many
believe Houdini will never free himself
from the ultimate escape challenge -
the shackles of death.
