Rhodesian i
WASHINGTON - Appealing;
to Congress to impose a boy-
cott against Rhodesian ,chrome,i
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
said yesterday the Carter ad-
ministration supports a 'rapida
but peaceful transition to black
rule in Rhodesia.
"The key to peace lies in Mr.
Ian Smith's hands," Vance said,
referring to the white Rhodesian
leader. Vance went on to say
that a U.S. boycott of Rhodesian
chrome would persuade Smith
to move in that direction. -
Vance, testifying before the
Senate subcommittee on Afri-
can affairs, said the United
States would not take charge of
any negotiations looking toward'
black rule and has no intention
of becoming involved in a con-
flict in Rhodesia if Britain fails
to arrange a peaceful settle-
"In our judgment, clearly theI
British should play the leading
role," Vance said.
The United Nations has im-
posed a global boycott of Rho-
desian chrome since 1966. How-
ever, the United States has re-
fused to honor the boycott be-
cause of the congressionally im-
posed Byrd amendment, which
bars U.S. participation.
IRA gunmen
LONDON - Four Irish Repub-
lican Army gunmen were sen-
tenced yesterday to life impri-
sonment for seven killings and
a dozen bombings during an 18-
month IRA offensive in English
Authorities said they were
bracing for a possible upsurge
of IRA violence in reprisal for
the stiff sentences.
The judge in the case, Sir
Joseph Cantley, who had been
told he was on the extremists'
death list, refrained from com-
menting on the threat of an IRA
campaign as: he imposed the
sentences in Central Criminal
Court, known to Londoners as
the Old Bailey. He recommend-

Catholics slam
South Africa
PRETORIA, South Africa -
The Roman Catholic Church, in
a stiff new challenge to the gov-
ernment of white-ruled South
Africa yesterday denounced the
nation's "social and political
system of oppression."
A statement by the Catholic
bishops of southern Africa call-
ed for sweeping change to avert
more bloodshed.
It urged a sharing of power
between South Africa's .5 mil-
lion whites and its 18 million
voteless blacks, condemned al-
leged police brutality against
blacks and vowed to promote
black leadership within the

students returned to school in
the black township of Soweto,
near Johannesburg, after a day !
of book burning and protest
against the government's sepa-
rate education policy for blacks.
The bishops demanded an in-
vestigation of what they describ-
ed as the "seemingly systematic
beatings and unjustifiable shoot-
ings of blacks during disturban-
ces and of cold blooded tor-
ture of detained persons."
In one of the most radical
statements ever published by
the Church in South Africa, long
a champion of black rights, it

ed that the election for top of-
ficers in the 1.4 million- mem-
ber union would be challenged.
Based on unofficial returns
gathered by his campaign
staffs, McBride said he had a
75,000 - vote margin over his
opponent. A Sadlowski spokes-
man claimed his candidate
was ahead by a slim lead of
about 5,000 votes.
McBride's unofficial returns
gave him a lead of 281,632 to
196,263 at 4,529 locals. Sadlow-
ski's latest figures, which were
posted early Wednesday even-
ing, put him ahead 171,531 to
166,980 at 2,170 locals.
About 500,000 votes were cast
in Tuesday's election, a turn-

John Askins, a Sadlowski
spokesman, declined to say de-

he added; "There's been so
much vote fraud. With all the
polling places, they only had to
steal a few votes at each place
and they could get 100,000."
Gas shortage
may continue
tion's natural gas shortage may
continue until October and could
become even worse in winters

to come, a key federal energy
official said yesterday.
"We're not going to get out of
today's crisis possibly until next
October" because of the need!
to refill depleted storage sup-
plies of natural gas in prepara-
tion for next winter, said John
O'Leary, new head of the Fed-
eral Energy Administration.
"And indeed," O'Leary told
the Consumer Federation of
America, "next winter, and the
next winter, and the next win-
ter it's going to be worse."
At the same time, govern-
ment reports indicated the cur-
rent mild weather had sent back
to the job thousands of workers
laid off due to natural gas
shortages but that many more
were still out of work.
Meanwhile, President Carter
announced that Vice President
Walter Mondale and former
President Gerald Ford will head
a new energy conservation
group to minimize the waste of
fuel resources in the United
And Carter's chief energy ad-
viser, Janes Schlesinger, said
energy conservation will be the
cornerstone of the administra-
tion's comprehensive policy to
be unveiled by April 20. He hint-
ed that much of the conserva-
tion may be imposed by the gov-
ernment and may involve some
kind of price regulation as
