Vice President Shapiro reported that
the $1,713,000 budget figure for the
program given to the Regents is not

wrong in assuming that "economic

"oppression is necessary for economic

prepare for the public an account of ac-

Following Delcamp and Feeny, two
other speakers told the Regents they

court's Bakke ruling.

South Africa has controlled Namibia
for 63 years, and its cooperation in the
transition to nationhood was essential.
The Western powers - the others
were Britain, France, West Germany

South African cooperation with a joint
statement saying that their plan did not

REGENT DEANE Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) questioned the legitimacy of the
April election, due to the comparatively
low percentage of students who voted.
"There are less than 4,000 students who
voted for this, out of 30 to 40
thousand.. . " Baker stated.
Several Regents seemed in favor of
allowing the allocations to Campus

become the major stumbling block in
the way of a settlement. Black African
leaders insist it must belong to
Namibia. South Africa insists that it
has always held sovereignty over the
port.
South African acceptance of the
Western plan would be a major victory
for Vance, U.N. Ambassador Andrew
Young, and the Carter administration.
It would demonstrate that they can act
as mediators to bring about peaceful
transitions to majority rule in southern
Africa, keeping out Soviet influence and
Cuban troops in the process.
Failure would cast doubt upon their
potential for solving the vexing
problems of white minority rule in
Rhodesia and South Africa itself.
THE WESTERN plan for Namibia
established a six-month schedule for
the withdrawal of South African troops
and holding free elections to form a
Namibian government. A U.N. civilian
and military peacekeeping force would
oversee the transition.
That plan was accepted in April by
South Africa. But the proposals at that
time made no mention of the fate of the
city of Walvis Bay.
