Smith, black leaders say white
minority rule will end this year
SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) -
Prime Minister Ian Smith and three
moderate black leaders announced
agreement yesterday to end white
minority rule in Rhodesia by the end of
In a brief statement after two-and-a-
half hours of talks, Smith, Bishop Abel
Muzorewa, the Rev. Ndabaningi Sithole
and Chief Jeremiah Chirau announced
they will sign a constitutional set-
THE ANNOUNCEMENT came after
a breakthrough compromise on the
composition of an interim government,
which is to be set up immediately.
Under the agreement, the four
leaders who sign the agreement will
form an "executive council" to take
over the powers of the prime minister.
The council chairmanship will rotate
The next level will be a council of
ministers with a white and a black
sharing each portfolio.
FROM THE start, the interim gover-
nment will be faced with the two
mammoth tasks of winning Western
recognition for the internal settlement
and finding a way to end the in-
creasingly costly war against exter-
nally based guerrillas who have vowed

to crush the internal agreement.
The constitutional agreement is the
result of three months of talks initiated
by Smith after a British-American
peace plan - with provisions to include
the guerrillas in a settlement - failed
to make headway.
Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugabe,
leaders of the guerrilla Patriotic Front,
which has battled the white gover-
nment for the last five years from
neighboring Mozambique and Zambia,
have rejected the Smith proposals and
said they would step up fighting.
THE GUERRILLA leaders said their
pressure is the only thing to move
Smith into turning over ruling power
from the 268,000 whites to the country's
6.4 million blacks.

called on the U.S. government to
denounce the settlement by Smith and
the moderate black leaders.

anything. This shows how unsure they
are of themselves," she said.
SHCHARANSKY suggested several
ways to assist her husband and others

was unhappy with the decision.
"I'm very, very disappointed, and I
think the Executive Committee showed
poor judgement," he said.
Font, who has also worked with
Chesler as a teaching assistant, reacted
to the judgement negatively also.
"I THINK IT'S very unfortunate.

According to students and faculty in
the Sociology Department, Chesler has
caused controversy in the department

Powell, citing the case of the B-1 bom-
ber. "Voting shareholders' resolutions
may get at a few people, but it will not
stop the corporations." Powell added
that voting would not "enhance the
liberation aspect in South Africa."
Randy Schwartz, a member of the
South African Liberation Committee
(SALC), said that SALC has been
saying all along that "no step short of
total divestment would be acceptable."
"To say we can effect change through
them (the ruling class in South Africa)
is to turn the whole thing upside-down,"
said Schwartz. "It's an absurdity."
SCHWARTZ ALSO acknowledged
"The point of divestitute is not so much
that it will hurt or cripple the regime,
but it will be a political victory."
a political victory."
Len Suransky, a white South African'
university graduate student, criticized
the committee's recommendations.
"Clearly that committee does not
seem to respect or take note of the
strong consensus that exists in the
University community, which emerged
after lengthy discussion and heated
debate during the recent forum," he
said. The consensus was that the
University should divest."
Suransky added he feels the Advisory
Committee does not have "the vaguest
notion of the world that black South
African workers live in, and that they
(the workers) are who supposedly they
(the committee) are trying to help."
"The Sullivan principles (the
Sullivan statement calls for equal
rights for blacks in factories) are a red
herring which serves to distract us
from the issue at hand," said Suransky.
He said that he does not believe "they
(the Sullivan guidelines) are asking the
right questions or addressing the real
problems or that they are going to
make any substantial difference to the
everyday black workers."

No peace to the wickedl There are two places in The Bible
that tell of peace among the nations when they shall beat
their swords into plow-shares, and their spears into pruning
hooks - Isaiah 2nd chapter, and Micah 4th. Both messages
are practically the same. The following quote is from Isaiah:
"AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS,
THAT THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD'S HOUSE SHALL BE
ESTABLISHED IN THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS, AND
SHALL BE EXALTED ABOVE THE HILLS: AND ALL
NATIONS SHALL FLOW UNTO IT, AND MANY PEOPLE
SHALL GO AND SAY, COME YE, AND LET US GO UP
UNTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, TO THE HOUSE OF
THE GOD OF JACOB: AND HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS
WAYS, AND WE WILL WALK IN HIS PATHS: FOR OUT OF
ZION SHALL GO FORTH THE LAW. AND THE WORD OF
of a mountain in the top of the mountains. All nations shall
flow unto that High Place to be taught God's ways in order to
walk in His paths. It is then that The Lord will judge among
the nations and bring peace.
Are you and I who claim to be Christian and heavenbound
flowing up to that High Place, or, are we flowing downward
seeking another level? It is our duty and business to seek and
proclaim peace for ourselves and as many others as we can.
Jesus Christ took a whip of cords and lashed out at the
hypocrits and profane wretches in The Temple, and later His
disciples remembered that it was written of Him: "The zeal of
Thine House hath eaten me up."
What is "eating on us? The story is told of a goat being
shipped by express: the agent sent his porter to find out
where it was to go, who returned and reported: "Dat goat don
'et up' where it gwine." It is to be feared that many of us so-
called Christians have "eaten up" our heaven-bound tag, if
we ever had onel Our zeal for the world, the flesh, and the
devil has consumed us, and our love for money, pleasure,
