Swept Away-( Cinema Guild,:
Arch. Aud. 7 & 9:05) - Lenaj
Wertmuller's Class - sex war-
fare film involving a right -wing
female aristocrat and a Com-
munist sailor who express their
mutual loathing for each other
during a Mediterranean cruise,
then shortly afterward find
themselves stranded on an un-
inhabited island. Seizing the iso-
lation, the sailor rapes and
beats his blonde companion
into total subservience, venting
his political and macho rages
into a kind of symbolic revenge
for the proletarian male in gen-
eral. To this point, Swept Away
seems an exceptionally dis-
tasteful exercise in masculine'
brutality, but the film suddenly
reverses gears and settles into
a gentle love story so beautiful-
lv lyric that it tends to dis-
solve even the memory of the
preceding unpleasantness. While
Swept Away could be interpret-
ed as saying rape and beatings
lead to domestic bliss, Wert-
muller's disjointed creation
seems artistically above all1
that - as if her poetic instincts
finally triumphed over her poli-
tics. This is an imperfect but
in many ways unique film, con-
taining as haunting a tragi-
comic finale as you're ever
likely to see. *

NEW DELHI, India (R) - An
American woman has died of
"acute high altitude sickness"
on the Himalayan peak she
was named for by her father,
a conqueror of Mt. Everest,
the Indian Mountaineering
Foundation reported yesterday.
Nanda Devi Unsoeld, 22, of
Olympia, Wash., was climbing
with an Indo-American expedi-
tion tackling the Nanda Devi
peak by a new route over its
northwest face. The rclimbers
were led by her father, Wil-
liam Unsoeld, who in 1963 be-
came one of the first two Amer-
icans to climb Everest, the
world's tallest mountain.
The foundation gave no details
of the fatal illness. High alti-;
tude sickness usually results
from a climber's lung filling
with fluid at high altitudes,
causing suffocation, a spokes-
man at the American Alpine
Club in New York said.
The elder Unsoeld first saw
the 25,645-foot Nanda Devi
while trekking through the,
Himalayas in 1948 and, impress-
ed by its beauty, vowed to name:
his first daughter after the ma-'
jestic mountain.
"I feel a very close relation-
ship with Nanda Devi ," his
daughter said in an interviewl

Smith said in Umtali, Rhodesia,
yesterday that he would like to
meet with Kissinger. There
have been reports the two would
meet, but they have not been
confirmed.
Smith told reporters he would
now make his greatest effort
ever to secure a settlement of
the constitutional dispute --
political rights for the black
majority - that has hung over
Rhodesia since it unilaterally
declared independence f r o m
Britain 11 years ago. He also
said room to maneuver had
been reduced and time was
short.
HOWEVER, SMITH'S
ruling all-white Rhodesia party
passed a resolution Thursday
rejecting early transfer to black
rule.
Kissinger also was to discuss
demands by blacks for dismant-

of apartheid, or racial separa-
tion. Kissinger will meet Sat-

leaders and a second group of
both blacks and whites.
