Panel subpoenas Rhodesia's white rulers and

Goldwater said that the in-
vestigation so far has shown
that all presidents since World
War It have directly or indirect-
ly approved of all CIA actions
and that the CIA at all times
had reason to believe it was
acting within the law.
"I'M just at a loss to know
what the -senator means,"
Church said- Church said he be-
lieves the fial report will bear
out his previmis statement that
the CIA at times acted on its
own authority and was effec-
tivelv out of control from above.
"All this committee is inter-
ested in is telling the truth and
w'e're doing our best to do it,"
Church said.
As for Nixon's testimony, the
former president's attornies are
reluctant to have him testify on
only one phase of the investiga-
tion without knowing what the
committee may choose to ask
him in further sessions.

"THE committee is not dis-
posed to press for the imme-
diate appearance of Mr. Nixon
if he is disinclined," Church
said. "We will hold open the
question of his later testimony
when we can cover all subjects
with him in the course of one
The subpoena seeks documen-
tary evidence from Sept. 1 to
Nov. 3, 1970 involving all efforts
by the United States to prevent
the election of Salvador Allende
as oresident of Chile.
The document and papers
sought are not confined to the
Nixon papers but also include
those of Kissinger , former
White House chief of staff Alex-
ander Haig, the National Secur-
ity Council and the so-called 40
Committee, which directs U.S.
intelligence activities.
In addition, it was disclosed
that the committee has learned

ence of a special Files Unit in

A statement issued simultan-
eously in Rhodesia and Zambia,
where many Rhodesian black
nationalists are in exile, said
the conference would begin
without preconditionstand would
give both parties "the oppor-
tunity to publicly express their
genuine desire to negotiate an
acceptable settlement."
After an initial stage, the con-
ference is scheduled to adjourn
and committees will discuss
settlement proposals which will
be taken up at a formal meeting
later - "anywhere decided up-

About 250,000 whites current-

Britain, still the legal ruler of
Rhodesia, would have to ratify
any agreement before it be-
comes effective.

IT IS THE view of most po-
litical observers in southern
Africa that there are now so
many pressures on Rhodesia
that a settlement is virtually
But Smith has dashed hopes
in the past for a settlement and
could do so again, although this
appears increasingly doubtful.

are open to guerrilla attack.
AT HOME, economic sanc-

Nations have hurt Rhodesia's
economy, and Mozambique, now
ruled by a militantly Socialist
African government, has threat

nation's main outlet to the sea
Most significant of all has
been South Africa's increasing
pressure on Smith to reach a
settlement. South Africa mount
ed a major diplomatic cam-
paign late last year to reach
detente with black Africa and
a key issue has been a settle-
ment in Rhodesia.

However, John Forsyth, the
GEO contract administrator for
the University, contended that
there are a lot of complications
involved in interpreting the
He pointed out that when a
department is hiring graduate
students other things are taken
into consideration than just race
and sex.
STUDENTS in need of finan-
cial aid are often hired as well
as those who must satisfy work
experience requirements, he
emphasized. According to For-
syth, this reduces the number
of women and minorities which
can be hired.
Forsyth elaborated, "At some
time everyone in the depart-
ment (with a work experience
requirement) must hold a job

regardless of race or sex.
Forsyth then blasted CEO fo
releasing the figures. "The

THE FIGURES were given it
GEO after they requested the
information in connection with
a grievance filed in June. TI-
grievance for departments to
recruit women and minorities to
increase the percentage of these
groups in the available pool af
job applicants.
Forsyth said "you can't look
at one term's data and draw
conclusions. If there is under
representation (of minorities)
we will set goals and try to
correct it. We don't lose any-
thing by waiting (for an addi
tional term for more figures)
since people have already been
hired for the fall."
