According to Mazrui, the re-

Though he says whites in
Rhodesia are still strong enough
to avert full scale fighting, Maz-

is doomed."
UZOIGWE adds that in the
event of war whites may not
offer much resistance. He says
there has been an immigration
of young whites to Rhodesia who
have come to make money and
have quit and "figure there's

ACCORDING to Mazrui, South
Africa is pushing for a settle-
ment with the black nationalists
because whites fear that a black
uprising in Rhodesia under a
right wing white government
will incite blacks in South Africa
to rebel.
Uzoigwe adds that he has "a
strong suspicion that Britain, the
United States, and South Africa
are working toward replacing
Smith with a moderate white
leader to negotiate with the
moderate wing of the black na-
tionalists" in order to avert

in the civilian wing between
Bishop Muzorewa and Ndaha-

in Zambia, and Nkoma.
According to Mazrui the split
developed over where the talks
should take place-inside Rho-
desia or not-and whether or
not a third party should preside.

Ford attacks
Reagan criticism

MILWAUKEE (UPI) - President Ford. yesterday called
Ronald Reagan's attacks on the administration's defense
policies "fabrication and invention," charging Reagan
either does not know what he is talking about or is playing
The President made the sharpest attacks of his cam-
paign against Reagan in a news conference. Ford was in
Milwaukee on the start of a two-day campaign trip for
Tuesday's Wisconsin Republican primary.
-Said the efforts of his envoy, Ambassador Dean
Brown, in Lebanon "were significant in getting the cease-
fire which is now in place . . . If we can keep that cease-
fire, get a change in government, we think the danger of
invasion by any party will not materialize."
-Refused to indicate whether he would use the Taft-
Hartley Act to enforce an 80-day cooling-off period in the
nationwide Teamsters Union strike.
Ford said he is in touch with Labor Secretary W. J.
Usery at the Arlington Heights, Ill., Teamsters negotiations
and "the proper procedure is to let the negotiations take
their course . . . I think the settlement will be accom-
Ford said Reagan's nationally televised address
Wednesday was a "rerun" of what the former California
governor has been saying in -his campaign for the GOP
presidential campaign.
"IT WAS a speech that was filled with misleading
statements. It was a speech that attributed certain quotes
to Secretary Henry Kissinger which were a fabrication and
invention," Ford said.
Ford referred to Reagan's statement that Kissinger
said he conceded the nation has lost military superiority
to Russia and he is resigned to the fact. Kissinger vehe-
mently denies saying so or holding that view.
Ford called his defense record "impeccable" and dis-
missed a suggestion to debate Reagan.
"Any debate with a person who is not familiar with
the facts, I don't think would be very helpful," he said.
"If Mr. Reagan wants to make the kind of political criti-
cism that he has made on several occasions, including last
Wednesday, that is his privilege, but I don't think the
American people will buy it."

decrease of 100,000 from Febru-
ary. This reflected a 30 per cent
recovery from the depths of
the nation's worst recession
since World War 11.
Both in March and through-
out the recovery, women
benefited most from the in-
crease in employment. 'Unem-
ployment among blacks showed
the biggest monthly improve-
ment, dropping 1.2 per cent to
12.5 per cent. But this too bene-
fited black women the most.
The ranks of the "discourag-
ed" unemployed, who have
given up looking for work,
dropped by 940,000 during the
first quarter of 1976 from a 1.2
million high.
