Kissinger program to aid poor
nations draws mixed reactions

NAIROBI, Kenya ' --Secre-
tary of State henry Kissinger
wound tip his 13-day African tour
yesterday with global economic
proposals that gained praise
from Third World delegates who
said his project could avoid
poor-rich confrontations. But
some Westerners panned it.
Kissinger flew to Paris for a
breakfast meeting with French
President Valery Giscard after
his speech to the fourth United
Nations Conference on Trade
aid Bvelopent (UNCTAB).
MANY delegates said his pro-
posals took the United States
closer to meeting poor country
demands for a greater share of
the world's wealth and a greater
voice in how it is spent.
Kissinger reaffirmed U.S. sup-
port for a peaceful solution to
racial problems in southern Af-
rica that would keep the region
free of big power rivalry.
In his hour-long speech, Kis-
singer proposed:
* An international resources
bank with $1 billion initially to
finance increased raw material
output on terms acceptable to
Western investors and to the
poor countries that provide the
commodities to smooth out mar-
ket swings.
* A more rapid spread of
Western technology among poor
nations. The United States would
make available seabed and satel-
lite data and encourage crea-
tion of a U.S. "technology corps"
to train foreign manpower.
* Debt burdens of destitute
nations should be considered in-
dividually and long-term financ-
ing, in which private sources
would figure importantly, should
be increased. The Ford adminis-
tration would seek congressional

approval to offer U.S. aid to the
pIssrest countries as grants not
requiring repayment, and wvorild

KISSINGER said UNCTAI) ef-
forts could end boom-and-bust
cycles and extend oppirtinities
for the world's pour utajority.
In an interview with three
American television correspon-
dents, Kissinger said "the Soviet
Uttion may not siuppuort this pro-
grain, but they have no means
of blocking it. The Soviet Union
is not so closely tied with the
world economy . . .
Initial Third World reaction
to the speech was favorable.

CLEVELAND OP) - Fire
fanned by winds gusting to 40
miles an hour swept through a
three-block section of homes on
Cleveland's southeast side ear-
ly yesterday morning before
being halted by firemen a block
from an Ashland Oil Co. chem-
ical plant.
The fire destroyed 29 homes
and left many adults and chil-
dren wandering the streets in
their nightclothes.
THREE persons were injur-
ed, including two of the more
than 100 firemen who fought
the blaze. The two fire fighters
suffered sprains and exhaus-
tion.
The Red Cross estimated that
60 persons were left homeless.
Some of the homes burned to
the ground in less than 30 min-
utes.
Many residents, some of
them elderly and one of them

blind, rushed from their homes,
leaving everything behind.
MOTHERS dragged children
away from the flames on
streets lighted only by the
blaze. The fire cut power lines,
shutting off street lights.
"We were frightened to
death," said Dorothy Gullatt,
40. "There was nothing to do
but to run for your life. The
wind was blowing the fire and
I was not able to save any-
thing. I grabbed my baby and
ran."
"I WAS lying in bed and I
could see the fire from the bed-
room, the flames were getting
bigger and the wind was blow-
ing all over," said Louise Ham-
ilton, 40.
Lt. Donald Childers of the
Fire Investigation Department
said the cause of the fire had
not been determined, but the
possibility of arson was being
investigated.
