Rhodesian peace
talks stalled
DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania
-A new Anglo-American peace
initiative on Rhodesia received
an early setback yesterday
when nationalist leader Robert
Mugabe said British Foreign
Secretary David Owen "failed to
convince" him Britain is capable
of achieving a solution.
Owen met with Mugabe, joint
leader of the Rhodesian nation-
alist Patriotic Front, shortly aft-
er his arrival in Dar es Salaam
at the start of a southern Africa
tour which he said is aimed at
achieving a Rhodesian settle-
ment through "the use of the
ballot rather than the gun."
THE RECENTLY appointed
British foreign secretary told
an airport press conference that
Anglo-American proposals he
carries are designed to create a
situation where Rhodesians of
"various racial origins" can live
in peace together. He did not
elaborate on the proposals ex-
cept to say that reconvening the
stalled Geneva conference is
one of the options.
But Mugabe said in a state-
ment after meeting Owen: "He
has failed to convince us that
Britain is in a position to ef-
fect the transfer of power to
the people of Zimbabwe the na-
tionalist name for Rhodesia."
In Cape Town, South Africa,
Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian
Smith said little progress should
be expected from his scheduled
talks there Wednesday with
Owen.
"IN THE FIRST PLACE, Dr.
Owen is a new man to his posi-
tion, and secondly, he has abso-
lutely no practical experience of
the Rhoaesian problems," Smith
said.
In an apparent reference to
Owen's refusal to visit Rhodesia
for his talks with Smith, the
Rhodesian Leader added:
"If people are not to take the
most elementary steps of ex-
amining the problems where
the problem lies, I must in all
honesty say I don't believe a
great deal is going to come out
of these talks."

Luther King was assassinated.
Sprague also said he has con-

claimed enlisted him in a gun-
running operation that put him
in Memphis when King was kill-

tion, and that other people help-
ed him to escape to Canada,
where he traveled before he
went to Great Britain, where
he was arrested.
Ray has not yet describV1 the
other people except to say they
are not his brothers, Sprague
said. The investigator said it has
become clear partly through
Ray's own comments and part-
ly through what the investiga-
tors could perceive themselves
that the name "Raoul" is made
up.
McGovern
returns from
Cuba
WASHINGTON-
Sen. George McGovern says
U. S. - Cuban relations cannot
improve until~the United States
ends its trade embargo against
Fidel Castro's regime, but that
a partial lifting might open the
way to preserving an anti-sky
jacking agreement.
The South Dakota Democrat,
who returned over the weekend
from a visit to Cuba, told a
news conference yesterday he
will ask President Carter to
consider a partial lifting of the
embargo to permit trade in food
and medicine, andpush legisla-
tion himself for the same pur-
pose.
But he said he doubts action
can be taken before the U. S.-
Cuban skyjacking agreement
expires on Friday. The agree-
ment provides that Cuba will
not cooperate with terrorists or
others who hijack airplanes to
the Caribbean nation.
CASTRO, charging CIA com-
plicity in the terrorist bombing
of a Cuban airliner by anti-Cas-
tro elements in Venezuela, an-
nounced six months ago he was
cancelling the anti-sky jacking
pact. The Cuban plane crashed
off the coast of Barbados, kill-
ing all 73 abroad.
McGovern said he argued at
length with Castro and his
brother Raul that the U. S. gov-
ernment had no role in the inci-
dent even though some of the
alleged terrorists reportedly
had a CIA connection at one
time.
He said Castro considered this
"a distinction without a differ-
ence," taking the position that
"if we have the capacity to
train people, we have the re-
sponsibility to control them."

EVEN SHOULD the hijack
agreement expire as expected,
McGovern said, Castro assured
him there would be no change
in Cuban policy toward hijack-
ers, who are kept in govern-
ment custody, put to work and
paid a subsistence.
"The problem with that is
that the hijackers themselves
might not understand it," Mc-
Govern said.

State
Carter's energy,
plans blasted
DETROIT - The Carter ad-
ministration's upcoming energy
proposals probably will cause
the most financial hardship for
middle income taxpayers, the
chairman of American Natural
Resources Co. said yesterday.
Arthur Seder Jr., speaking to
the Detroit Economic Club,
said he has become skeptical of
President Carter's energy pro-
posals scheduled to be revealed
April 20.
Seder said his concern was
based mostly on official state-
ments that the energy program
will not cause more inflation
and will not penalize or put an
extreme burden on the poor.
"THESE STATEMENTS, to
me, represent contradictions in
terms, with the clear implica-
tion, additionally, that the
major impact of. the program
will be visited on the long suf-
fering middle income tax-
payer," Seder said.

RAY, WHO PLEADED guilty'
to King's murder and is serving
a 99-year sentence, has contend-
ed that the operation directed by
"Raoul" had nothing to do with
King, so far as he kneW.
Ray contends he purchased
the rifle that police believe was
used to kill King but handed it
to "Raoul" and left the area
shortly before the assassina-
tion.
Sprague also said some fed-
eral investigators believe the
man the CIA recorded contact-
ing Soviet and Cuban embassies
in Mexico City before President
John F. Kennedy was assassina-
ted was not Lee Harvey Os-
wald.
SPRAGUE SAID he does not
believe the House assassinations
committee can conduct a proper
investigation of the two assassi-
nations and said he doubts it
even wants to.
He said a special prosecutor
should be set up with an inde-
pendent staff to 'investigate the
assassinations, without the pres
sure he said the House commit-
tee staff was under to produce
something sensational.
Sprague said he believes the
committee was set up before
the election to appeal to black
voters unhappy with inadequate
investigation of the King assas-
sination. He said the panel was
established with the idea that

it might be scrapped after the
election.
SPRAGUE RESIGNED as staff
director and chief counsel of the
committee two weeks ago when
it appeared the House would kill
the investigation if he remained
on the job. After his departure,
the House voted 230 to 181 to
continue the panel's probe.
Sprague had become an issue
because many congressmen re-
sented what they saw as his
winning in a feud that forced
former Chairman Henry Gonza-
lez, D-Tex., to resign.
Sprague quoted Ray as saying
in the two interviews conducted
by committee investigators that
people other than members of
Ray's family helped him obtain
a weapon to escape from a
Missouri prison before the as-
sassination.
RAY SAYS he contacted oth-
er people after the assassina-

He said that while Raul de-
manded tougher U. S. control
of terrorist activities by anti-
Castro elements in this country,
the revolutionary leader him-
self considered the economic
embargo the most important ob-
stacle to U.S.-Cuban relations.
"THE EMBARGO is the big
sticking point and I don't think
much is going to happen until
that is lifted, at least partially,"
said McGovern, adding that he
personally favors a total lifting
and believes a majority of the
American people also do.
