SALISBURY, Rhodesia O)--Rhodesia's white rulers and black
nationalists will meet in a luxury railway coach on a bridge
spanning Victoria Falls for talks which are expected to lead to
black majority rule for the African nation.
The decision to start the constitutional conference by Aug. 25
was announced yesterday after months of bickering over the
THE RAILROAD car will be supplied by South Africa. The
bridge where the talks will be conducted is on the border between
black-governed Zambia, which was called Northern Rhodesia
during its British Empire days, and white-ruled Rhodesia, which
was once called Southern Rhodesia.
Rhodesia's exiled black nationalists, fearing for their safety,
wanted the talks held outside Rhodesia. Prime Minister Ian Smith,
who unilaterally declared Rhodesia's independence from Britain
nearly 10 years ago and has long declared "no black majority
rfle in my lifetime," wanted to talk inside the country.
The conference is expected to produce a formula leading to
black majority rule in about three years lbased on gradual easing
of the educational requirements for voting.
THE ALTERNATIVE is a major escalation of the 30-month
guerrilla war on Rhodesia's borders in which 596 guerrillas, 71
Rhodesian security troops and South Africa police and 267 civilians
have already died.
Victoria Falls is one of Africa's greatest natural wonders.
Every minute during the flood season, 141 million gallons of water
drop 307 feet into the Zambesi River from a black basalt cliff
more than a mile wide.
The spray often reaches a height of 1,650 feet and gives rise

HURON VALLEY BRANCH LOSES UNDER $1,000
Man robs campus bank, escapes
By JEFF RISTINE
A man robbed the campus branch of
Huron Valley National Bank yesterday af-
trnoon and fled across the Diag with less
than $1,000 in cash.
Police Chief Walter Krasny said the thief,
who has not been apprehended, approached
a teller at the N. University St. bank around
L:45 p.m. and gave her a note demanding
money. After sticking the cash into a plastic
bag, the man fled on foot toward the Diag,
across the street.
CITY POLICE, who are working with
the FBI on the case, said the teller quickly
informed the branch manager of the rob-
bery who then chased and came within ten
feet of the fleeing man. _
The manager shouted, "Are you the man
that was just in the bank?" but his suspect
indicated he was carrying a gun in his
zippered plastic pouch, and the bank offi-
cial turned away, according to police.
Krasny said the robber did not speak
while he was in the bank and communicated
only through the note. Another police offi-
cial said eyewitnesses told authorities the
man was "very quiet" and "didn't say
ALTHOUGH the robber's note indicated
he had a weapon, police said no one in the
bank actually saw a gun.
Eyewitnesses described the man as white,
about 30 years old, with greasy, curly black
hair. They estimated the man weighed
220 to 240 pounds and was five feet ten
inches to six feet tall. He wore a light
blue shirt with an open collar.
Krasny said the robber carried a brief-
LOCAL POLICE and the FBI are analyz-
ing pictures taken from bank cameras at
the time of the robbery, but one police
official said last night that "the negatives
are not too good."
A bit more optimistic, Krasny said of
bank camera photographs: "Sometimes
they're good and sometimes they're bad."
The police chief, who said the thief es-
caped with less than $1,000, added that,
