SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP)
- An upsurge in fighting even
as blacks and whites prepare for
talks on Rhodesia's future has
killed 10 black guerrillas and
10 civilians, the government re-
ported yesterday.
Government security chiefs
also said guerrillas had shot
three black civilians whose bod-
ies were found roped together.
The initial report gave no furth-
er detail and it was unclear im-
mediately whether the victims
were three black nationalists
missing since last week.

Bishop Abel Muzorewa and may

Robert Mugabe, said Monday
he was pessimistic about the
chances of success for the Brit-
ish-sponsored Geneva confer-
ence, which is scheduled to be-
gin Oct. 21 and is designed to
produce a biracial interim gov-
ernment for Rhodesia.
MUGABE, a factional leader
with close ties to black Rhodes-
ian guerrillas operating from
nearby Mozambique, said Rho-
desian Prime Minister Ian
Smith's insistence on white con-
trol of the army and police in
an interim government means
there is "obviously no starting
point for talks."
Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo,
another factional leader, have
formed a united front and de-
manded a delay in the Geneva
conference and an immediate
transfer to black rule, without
an interim -regime.
There were reports in London
yesterday that Foreign Ministf
Anthony Crosland was consider-
ing postponing the conference.

CARTER, WHILE not accus-
ing Ford of any wrongdoing,
has criticized long-term federal
officials who develop close
friendships with lobbyists, as
Ford acknowledges having dune.
"I personally resent this at-
tack on my integrity," Ford
was quoted as saying in the
interview. "He knows the
charges are not true. They are
pure demagoguery."
In a statement issued yester-
day, Carter also assailed Ford
for trying to take credit dur-
ing the foreign policy debate
for signing a bill that imposed
tax penalties on U.S. firms that
cooperate with an Arab trade
boycott against Israel.
"He fought tooth and nail
against such a bill," said the
Carter statement, which includ-
ed a copy of a letter from
Treasury Secretary William Si-
mon to^Sen. Abraham Ribicoff,
D-Conn., a member of the Sen-
ate Finance Committee, criticiz-
ing such legislation.
"It is time that Mr. Ford
told the American people the
truth - that he has done noth-
ing meaningful to break the
back of the boycott - that he
has opposed every effort to de-
clare the boycott illegal . ."
Carter said.
