Ninety year
of Rhodesian
schools ends
SAILSBURY, Rhodesia (AP)-Nine
decades of segregated state education
crumbled in Rhodesia yesterday when
small numbers of blacks were admitted
to schools reserved in the past for
whites only.
the move followed last Friday's
repeal of eight acts that were the basis
for legalized discrimination.
NEW LAWS officially desegregate
white suburbs and open doors-for
anyone who can pay increased fees and
meet residential and academic
tests .- the white minority's
cherished institutions, the state schools
and hospitals.
Middle-class black pupils were ad-
mitted to a sprinking of the country's
171 previously all-white schools.
Children from the tiny Asian and
mixed-race groups also moved from
their segregated state schools into
classrooms in white working-class
The state had run three school
systems-one for whites, one for blacks
and a third for Asians and children of
mixed race.
Education ministry officials would
give no estimate of the number of
blacks in the schools. But an unofficial
sampling of 30 schools across the coun-
try showed some 220 black children
enrolled-and other unofficial counts
estimated that a total of some 500 pupils
probably entered the schools.
Schools in plush white suburbs of
seven major city centers reported few
blacks, or none at all, and a few Asians
and mixed-race children applying for a

integration of state schools for the first time in nine decades.

SEATTLE (AP) - China's Vice
Premier Teng Hsiao-ping ended his get-
acquainted visit with America yester-
day, expressing hope that the two
peoples will "live in friendship from
generation to generation."
Nursing a cold and slight fever and
too weary for one last meeting, the
Chinese leader said he is returning
home "laden with the warm sentiments
of the American people." He called
"most unforgettable" the friendship
shown him in his eight-day visit.
"WE CAME in the hope of
strengthening peace, and we have not
been disappointed in our hope," he said
in a farewell talk that was held in a tiny,
bare airport office because of rain.
Most of Teng's prepared speech was
read in English by his translator; Teng
delivered only brief portions in Chinese.
Ambassador-designate Leonard
Woodcock told Teng: "'And, so has en-
ded an historic and very Ysuccessful
visit. You have brought us a message of
friendship which you have said, and we
agree, will last from generation to
generation. We are proud that we may

have a part in the new long march to
China's destiny."
IT WAS A low-key departure for a
world leader whose visit caused more
stir than any other since Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev's circus-
like tour in 1959.
Teng did not leave without a referen-
ce to a theme expressed often during
the stay which took him to Atlanta,
Houston and Seattle after four days of
official talks in Washington.
"The Chinese people will do their bit
toward opposing global and regional,
hegemonism," he said. As used by the
Chinese, hegemony is a code word for
Russian expansionism.
TENG'S QUIET departure was in
sharp contrast to the pageantry and
formality that accompanied his arrival
ceremony at the White House exactly
one week earlier.>There was another
contrast as well: The protesters who
were everywhere during his
Washington, D.C., visit were nowhere
to'be seen as he left.
Despite the euphoria, Teng's visit
leaves the Carter administration with

many problems
In his repeated warnings about
hegemonism and about the Rassian
"polar bear," Teng is asking the United
States to join China against the Soviet
Union - and asking at a time when
Carter is trying td conclude the SALT II
agreement with the Soviets.
In Washington, the State Department
addressed another problem when it an-
nounced yesterday President Carter
would veto lAgislation tying full
diplomatic relations with China to a
U.S. commitment to defend Taiwan
"It would be impossible for the
President to approve legislation incon-.
sistent with the normalization of
relations with the P~ople's Republic of
China," Deputy Assistant Secretary of
State Warren Christopher told* the
Senate Foreign Relations CQmnittee.
Christopher said, kAverf the State
Department will coopeirate in writing,
legislation to express U.S. concern for
the security of Taiwan without jeopar-
dizing the /normalization of relations
with China.
