Chinese back Zaire, Teng says

TOKYO (AP) - Deputy Chinese
leader Teng Hsiao-ping yesterday ac-
cused the Soviet Union of throwing
Africa into "unprecedented turmoil"
and declared it will support Zaire and
other developing nations in "just
struggles," according to a Hsinhua
dispatch monitored here.
The Chinese news agency said Teng
who is deputy premier and vice chair-
man of the Communist Party, made the
assertion at a Peking banquet for Maj.
Gen. Juvenal Habyalimana, president
of Rwanda, which is a neighbor of
Zaire.
Janan's Kvodo news service reported

diplomats from the Soviet Union, Cuba
and six other Soviet-bloc nations
walked out of the banquet after Teng's
comments.
"OVER THE past year and more, the
rivalry between the superpowers in
Africa has been getting ever fiercer so
that Africa has become ahot spot in the
two superpowers' strategic plans for
dominating the world," Hsinhua quoted
Teng as saying.
Teng's promise of support for Zaire
echoed comments made Wednesday in
the Zairian capital of Kinshasa by
Foreign Minister Huang Hua, who was
visiting Zaire to assess damage done in

the mineral-rich area of Kolwezi,
overrun last month by Lunda
secessionist tribesmen.
Huang alleged the rebels, who were
driven from Kolwezi by a French-
Belgian force, were Soviet- and Cuban-
backed.
"UNDER THE leadership fo
President Mobutu, the Zairian people
and army have waged a just struggle
against the invasion by the Soviet-
Cuban-hired mercenaries in the Shaba
region, and for the defense of national
independence, state unity and
territorial integrity," Hsinhua quoted
Huang as saying.

Huang called his four-day visit to
Zaire "successful." he flew to Amster-
dm, the'Netherlands, before returning
to Peking.
WITHOUT MENTIONING the Soviet
Union by name, Teng said, "The late
coming superpower, in particular, has
continually dispatched additional mer-
cenaries to Africa to kindle flames of
war in various places, throwing Africa
into unprecedented turmoil and causing
great anxiety among African coun-
tries," the report said.
"Before the war flames it fanned up
in the Horn of Africa where the Soviets
are backing Ethiopia had died down, it
recently engineered a second intrusion
into Zaire by mercenaries," Teng was
quoted as saying.
"The Chinese government and people
firmly support the African people in
their just cause of unity against
hegemonism, imperialism and
colonialism, firmly support Zaire, the
Third World and all sovereign coun-
tries."
Carter to
'beef up'
imports
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter announced yesterday he will let
enough foreign beef into the country
this year to keep hamburger and
processed beef prices an estimated five
cents a pound below what they other-
wise might be.
He said the action will save con-
sumers $500 million this year but won't
hurt American cattlemen, whose lob-
bying organizations denounced the
move.
AGRICULTURE Secretary Bob
Bergland said the foreign beef would be
mostly lean, grass-fed meat which is
generally blended with cuttings from
fat American cattle and used to make
hamburger and sausage.
The administration is calling the move
anti-inflationary even though it is ex-
pected to add only minimally to the
total beef supply. Some government
economists predict with Carter that the
import decision will reduce average
beef costs by nearly a nickel a pound
later this year, but others are saying
the effect will be just a cent or two
decrease.
Farmers, the meat industry and
congressional critics are broadly pan-
ning the plan, labeling it as inept,
cosmetic and devastating to ranchers.
CARTER'S PLAN, which was
scheduled to be released yesterday,
would allow 200 million more pounds of
beef into the country through a
renegotiation of existing trade pacts
with 13 foreign meat exporters.

Keys to'
By R. J. SMITH
Thieves broke into a storage locker in
an office in Engineering Services, next
to the Administrative Services Building
on Hoover and Green Streets, two
weeks ago and stole between 100 and 112
University keys. The keys are masters
and submasters which would give the
robbers access to many University
buildings.
The Department of Safety, which
runs University security, acted to sup-
press news of the crime immediately
following the incident, in order to
protect their investigation from
publicity. Normally, a statement is
available to the public from both the
Department of Safety and the Ann Ar-
bor police after a crime has been repor-
ted to authorities.
THE DEPARTMENT now says their
investigation has "petered out," and
that the theft of the keys isan "unusual

'U' buildings stolen

mystery."
ACCORDING to Department of
Safety Director Fred Davids, the stolen
keys will open both libraries, the
Modern Languages Building, Angell
Hall, and the Literature, Science and
Arts Building.
The robbers do not have keys for any
University housing, Medical Center
facilities, athletic area buildings, Cen-
tral or North Campus recreation
facilities or the University's cashier's
offices. Also, no keys were reported
missing for the Michigan Union, the
Administration Building, the
president's residence or several other
University buildings.
The robbery occurred sometime bet-
ween late Friday afternoon, May 26,
and Monday morning, May 29, when the
theft was discovered. University
security guards turned in all their keys
Friday afternoon to the Engineering
Services offices.

The list of keys stolen does not in-
clude any interior building keys,
Davids said. Since the key theft, there
have been no reports of major rob-
beries from those buildings affected.
The Department of Safety and the
Ann Arbor police withheld any public
release of the robbery's occurrence. "I
didn't seek to give out too much
publicity at the outset," said Davids. "I
was hoping that we wouldn't put too
much force on the robber, to make
him throw the keys away rather than us
finding them."
THE DAILY learned of the robbery
from two sources, one of which was an
anonymous phone call.
Inside the Engineering Services of-
fices, the keys were stored inside a
locker with what Davids described as a
"nickel and dime lock which you could
