Idi Amin never left Africa
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Three days
of international guessing whether Idi
Amin intended to gate-crash the Com-
monwealth conference in London by land,
sea or air ended yesterday with an an-
nouncement the unpredictable dictator
was at home in Kampala.
Radio Uganda's report made no men-
tion of earlier claims that Amin was
bound for London to crash the Com-
THE BRIEF ANNOUNCEMENT, mon-
itored in Nairobi, said Amin returned to
the Ugandan capital after meeting "top
revolutionary officials" from Tanzania
and Zambia near the joint border of
Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. It also
said Uganda had arrested one of the
300 resident British subjects as a spy,
would try him "for treason" and would
shoot him if he were found guilty.
Yesterday's was the latest in a string
of bizarre reports that placed Amin in
Libya, in Britain demanding to be car-
ried in a sedan chair, or in the skies
over Europe looking for a country that
would allow his jet to land.
British officials, who told Amin he
was not welcome because of alleged
atrocities, insisted the Ugandan leader
had never entered the country, and dur-'
ing the three-day affair there were no
independent reports of his whereabouts.
SOURCES IN LONDON said it ap-
peared the whole affair was a headline-
grabbing hoax to make the British ap-
pear foolish during the conference of
their former colonies.
Earlier yesterday, the radio reported
Amin was in Britain demanding the gov-
ernment arrange for him to be carried
"shoulder-high for several miles." If the
government did not meet the request,
Amin would consider "something seri-
ous" against the British, the radio said.
In announcing the field marshal's "re-
turn," the radio said Amin also ordered
France to stop representing British in-
terests in Uganda, as it has done since
London broke relations with its former
colony last July.

It's possible togo into an annual checkup feeling terrific.
And come out knowing something's wrong. It happened to
me. The doctor found what I couldn't even feel... a little
lump under my arm. If I had put off the appointment for
one reason or another, I probably wouldn't be here today.
Because that little lump I couldn't feel was a melanoma, a
highly aggressive form of cancer that spreads very quickly.
It's curable-but only if found in time.
So when I tell you, "Get a checkup," you know it's from
my heart. It can save your life. I knowslt saved mine.
It can saveyourlife.
