As the stomach churns
The greatest show on earth mnay soon be the one going on inside your
stomach. According to University Prof. of Surgery Thomas Dent the
melding of a flexible tube which can see inside body cavities and a
miniature TV camera - a video endoscope - allows surgeons to see,
before they make an incision, precisely where they may operate in the
stomach, duodenum or colon. The process eliminates guesswork, and
best of all it's broadcast in living color. The possibilities for exploitation
are, of course, endless. Prime time, Cosell narration, Pepto-Bismol spon-
sorship, Turns commercials ... and FCC censorship. Just in case your
tummy lands on the chopping block and subsequently on national TV, you
ought to be prepared. So dress up those gastric ulcers and polish those
polyps. You never know when someone, somewhere will walk up to you,
shove a camera in your chitterlings and say: 'ive us the inside story."

Here's a tip, buddy
After the tip he got from a
London cabbie recently you'd
think Rep. Robert Bauman (R-
Md.) oughta know better, but
Bauman claims he still supports
the idea of televising House ses-
sions. Colleagues of Bauman's,
however, are wondering about
the congressman's motives after
he revealed the conversation he
had with he English cab driver.
On a recent jaunt to the land of
tea and scones, ' Bauman asked
the cabbie what he thought of the.
British parliament. "I never\
knew what a bunch of bloody
baboons ran this country, " the
driver answered, "until they put
the show on the radio recently."
When they finally put your
"show" on the tu4e, Bauman,
don't forget we told you so.
On the outside...
What a drag it is getting cold. Today we shouldshave a high of 36 (big
deal) which will be enough to melt some of the snow, ruin your shoes,
mess up your carpeting... you know the story. By evening, however, the
melted snow will be replaced. There'll also be a little freezing rain, and
the temperature will drop to-a chilling 300. The rain will continue. Cold
will go on. Winter triumphs.

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) - Rho-
desian forces smashed two black na-
tionalist bases in Mozambique, killed at
least 1,200 guerrillas and destroyed
large quantities of war material, the
government said yesterday.
The most devastating raids Rhodesia
has conducted across the border came
as Prime Minister, Ian Smith was
making plans to meet with moderate
black leaders inside the country to dis-
cuss eventual majority rule.
THE MILITARY command said
ground and air forces launched the five-
day operation last Wednesday against
the guerrillas' main base camp at Chi-
moio, 54 miles across the border, and a
second camp in Mozambique's north-
western province of Tete, 132 miles in-
side the Marxist country.
One Rhodesian soldier was killed and
eight were wounded, the government
said. The raids, the fourth operation in-
to Mozambique officially acknowledged
by Rhodesia, were conducted "in the in-
terests of self defense," the military
command's communique said.
"Large quantities of war material in-
cluding weapons, vehicles, am-
munition, fuel, buildings and docu-
ments were destroyed," it said.
INTELLIGENCE sources said both
of the camps were strategic bases for
guerrillas of Robert Mugabe's Zim-
babwe African National Union, largest
of the two guerrilla armies fighting to
topple Smith's white minority govern-
Officials believe Mugabe has about,
9,000 men, more than 3,500 in Rhodesia
and the rest in Mozambique. If 1,200
guerrillas were killed in the raid, it

would mean he has lost nearly one-fifth
of his forces.
The second guerrilla army, the Zim-
babwe African Peoples' Union headed
by Joshua Nkomo, is estimated to have
about 3,000 men, several hundred inside
Rhodesia and others in neighboring
MOZAMBIQUE closed its 800-mile
border with Rhodesia in March 1976'and
since that time hostilities between the
countries have increased steadily as
Mozambique stepped up its support of
the guerrillas.
The military command said Rhodesi-
an troops had not clashed with Mozam-
bique troops. "The aims of these com-
bined air and ground actions were suc-
cessfully achieved," the military said.
In the first raid against Mozambique
in August 1976, Rhodesian. troops de-
stroyed what they called a terrorist
camp 25 miles inside Mozambique, kill-
ing 340 persons, including 300 guerril-
las. Mozambique claimed it was a refu-
gee camp and said up to 1,000 persons
were killed.
In other raids in October 1976 and
again early this year, few guerrilla
casualties were reported but troops.
brought back truckloadsof arms and
ammunition and said they destroyed
tons of other equipment before with-
