Mozambican troops hit strategic
targets in Zimbabwe Rhodesia

SALISBURY, Zimbabwe Rhodesia (AP)-Mozambican
troops battled helicopter-borne Zimbabwe Rhodesian com-
mandos into the night yesterday as the invaders hit strategic
targets from 50 to 200 miles inside Mozambique, the military
In a communiqaue, the military said its raiders killed 23
of a 26-man army unit in a fierce gunbattle and destroyed a
black guerrilla-Mozambican army brigade headquarters in
its first attacka on regular troops of a neighboring black state
since the bloody guerrilla war began seven years ago.
THE MILITARY SAID one of its invaders was killed, but
did not say how many were sent.
Zimbabwe Rhodesia has made 38 raids into Mozambique,
Angola and Zambia, but previous ones have been aimed only
at guerrilla bases of black nationalists seeking to topple the
Salisbury government.
Mozambique defense officials provided the first word of
the raid, which began Wednesday. They reported shooting
down a helicopter and said some civilians were killed along
the Limpopo River, but gave no casualties among its defense
THE ATTACK CAME only days before the start of
British-sponsored peace talks in London aimed at ending the
guerrilla war.
Representatives from the guerrillas and Salisbury gover-
nment are to attend.

was "one of the most successful operations we have conduc-
The military said it launched the raid after learning more
than 100 Mozambique regulars had infilitrated its borders to
command guerrilla units. The communique said a captured
Mozambican said larger incursions were planned soon.
IN ITS COMMUNIQUE, the military said its forces
destroyed a combined Mozambican-guerrilla brigade
headquarters, along with fuel dumps, an armory and a radar
station at Mapai, 30 miles across the border.
On the border, Zimbabwe Rhodesian ground forces at-
tacked a combined Mozambique-guerrilla base at Malvernia,
but met no resistance, the communique said.
The military said its only casualty was a technician killed
when the helicopter was shot down Wednesday bout 50 miles
inside Mozambique.
The Mozambique Defense Ministry said the attack began
with French-built Mirage fighters escorting helicopter-borne
troops across the border. The reference to Mirage jets ap-
parently was to suggest South Africa, which flies Mirages,
was involved in the raid, but South Africa has consistently
denied aiding Zimbabwe Rhodesia on its cross-border air
South Africa has said its intelligence sources discovered
the Soviet Union has 1,600 troops inside Mozambique while
Cuba, a Soviet ally, has 2,000 soldiers, buit there was no word
if any of the foreign troops were involved in the fighting.

states, especially those holding
early presidential caucuses and
primaries. The price of tickets _
ranges from $300 per person to, in
one case, $5,000 per corporation.-
MRS. CARTER recently was
quoted as saying she agreed to
the appearances "because we felt
it was necessary to try to raise
some funds this year and kind of
get that out of our way."
But she was reluctant to call it
straight-out politicking, saying,
"I don't exactly say that.I'm
campaigning." Not all of her
political travel schedule consists
of fund-raising, however.
The itinerary begins Saturday
with a trip to Iowa, home of the
nation's first precinct caucuses
that placed Jimmy Carter into
the national spotlight in 1976.

Radio po
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Federal
Communications Commission (FCC)
took a major step toward deregulation
of the nation's 8,653 radio stations
yesterday by proposing the elimination
of rules governing commercial time
and public affairs programming.
The commission's action, open to
public comment for at least 90 days,
followed by another 60-day period for
industry response, would fall short of
various congressional attempts at
deregulation, some of which would go
so far as to drop the fairness doctrine,
equal time and re-licensing
requirements for radio stations.
NONETHELESS, the agency's
proposals represent the biggest move
toward a virtually free market in com-

mercial radio since the FCC'was
created in 1934. Rules for television
would not be affected.
Specifically, the FCC suggested:
" Dropping its guidelines requiring
the 4,548 AM stations to devote eight per
cent of their programming to news or
public affairs material. The six per cent
guideline for 4,105 FM stations also
would be abandoned.
. The elimination of "all FCC
policies dealing with limitations on
amounts of commercial time," and in-
stead .leaving it to "competitice
marketplace forces to hold down levels
of radio commercialization."
The commission also would remove
itself from "detailed consideration" of
public affairs programming.
