Guerrilla input key to
S. Africa peace talks

The Michigan Daily - Sunday, November 11, 1984- ,Page 3
India's capital fires
police commissioner,

JAMBA, Angola (AP)-Bush
fighter Jonas Savimbi says regional
peace talks involving South Africa,
Angola, and the United States will fail
unless his anti-Marxist guerrillas get a
seat at the negotiations.
Savimbi summoned 45 reporters to
his remote headquarters of thatch and
reed huts Friday and told them that he
will throw thousands of additional
soldiers into the war again'st Angola's
pro-Soviet government if his group, the
National Union for the Total Indepen-
dence of Angola (UNITA), remains
excluded from talks.
"THERE IS no settlement without
UNITA," he said.
Savimbi said UNITA welcomed the
re-election of "sympathetic" President
Reagan. "At this camp there was
jubilation," he said. But he accused the
U.S. State Department of ambiguity
concerning UNITA's role and the
presence of Cuban troops in Angola.
"We want a strong position concer-
ning the Cubans. They are invaders in

our country and must leave," Savimbi
said. "We want the State Department to
clarify its attitude. We have not under-
stood what they are doing in four
years."
Savimbi said he wants to make his
first visit to the United States since late
1981 to explain his views.
THE UNITED States has been trying
for five years to undercut Soviet in-
fluence and ease the complex racial
ideological conflicts in southern Africa.
It wants a withdrawal of the 30,000
Cuban troops in Angola supporting
President Jose Eduardo dos Santos.
Other U.S. goals for the region in-
clude:
" An end to the Angolan civil war.
" Withdrawal of white-ruled South
Africa's troops from southern Angola.
" Restraint by South-West Africa
People's Organization guerrillas based
in Angola.
. " Independence for South-West
Africa, also called Namibia, under a
United Nations-sponsored plan to
remove it from South African control.

NEW DELHI, India (AP)-The In-
dian capital's police commissioner was
fired yesterday, and his successor
vowed to restore public confidence
shaken by police failure to quell four
days of deadly rioting.
Thousands of Sikhs, meanwhile, con-
tinued to leave the refugee camps
where they fled during the spree of
murder, arson and looting by Hindu
mobs following the Oct. 31
assassination of Prime Minister Indira
Gandhi, allegedly by Sikh members of
her own bodyguard.
THE NEW COMMISSIONER,
Suryakant Jog, said the public lost faith
in the 30,000-man New Delhi police for-
ce after Hindu policemen stood by or in
some cases joined in the carnage by
revenge-seeking mobs. More than 1,000
people, most of them Sikhs, died in the
rioting.
"We will regroup the police to win
back the confidence of the people," Jog
told the United News of Ihia news
agency in Bombay, where he had been
special police inspector-general for
Maharashtra state.
Jog replaces Subhash Tandon, who is
being transferred to the desert state of
Rajasthan. Jog led the Indian forces.
that took control of the Portuguese
territory of Goa near Bombay in 1961.
CALCUTTA'S POLICE COM-
MISSIONER, Nirupam Som, was
removed from his post on Friday
following allegations of police
negligence. A night curfew was lifted
yesterday in Calcutta, India's largest
city with 9.2 million people, but army

and paramilitary troops still patrolled
tense areas there.
Also yesterday, the Indian Police
Service Association expressed
"anguish and shame" that two
policemen had killed the prime
minister. The association urged the
government to fix blame for "the grave
security lapse.
By official count, more than 600
people were killed in the capital alone,
but many Sikhs and some leading
newspapers say the figure should be
much higher.
ALTHOUGH THOUSANDS of Sikhs
are leaving refugee camps, many say
the memory of last week's slaughter is
still too strong for them to return to the
homes where their loved ones died.
"I only came back for the photo,"
said 25-year-old Hukmi Bai, clutching a
snapshot of her husband, one of the
more than 1,000 Sikhs killed by Hindu
mobs following the Oct. 31
assassination of Indira Gandhi.
"My husband was so young and loved
me so much," she mumbled in a voice
that seemed drained of spirit. "No
family will ever return to this cursed
place."
THE YOUNG WIDOW was among 30
Sikhs, most of them women, who retur-
ned yesterday with an army escort to
retrieve what was left of their
belongings in this New Delhi suburb,
scene of one of the bloodiest confron-
tations between Sokhs and Hindus.
Indian officials say 98 people, all
Sikhs, died in the neighborhood.

They say they have no problems with
the University counseling programs for
minorities. But a support group formed
of peers is "more comfortable,"
O'Garra said.
"YOU GET more accomplished, you
know the people, it's a much more in-
timate way, more individual," she ad-
ded.
The group, which currently has about
15 members, held a fund raiser earlier
this month. In December, the members
will hold an "Evening of Song and Dan-
ce" featuring the University Gospel
Choir. They also hope to attend a per-
formance of Sophisticated Ladies.
The group's leaders plan to write
other college campuses in the Midwest
and encourage black female students to
establish similar support groups.

Holloway acts as president and
O'Garra as vicespresidentmeetings are

The group's motto is "Join together

director of the Comprehensive Studies
Program. "If you're a woman, you
have a problem in how the rest of the
world perceives women. If you're a
woman and a minority, you have a
double concern. There are two things
going on. If one isn't a factor, the other
one is," she said.

LSA prepares for election

concerned with improving the visibility
of LSA-SG and presenting forums and
speakers to discuss liberal arts
education.
"THE LSA-SG is an academic:
organization which should show the use
for a liberal education," DeGraff said.
The SPOCK Party formed last April
for the Michigan Student Assembly
elections to prove that student apathy
was so rampant that anyone could win
with a flashy advertising campaign.
DeGraff aumits that if they would have
won, the group would have refused the
position.
But now DeGraff and his slate have

decided to make a serious run at elec-
ted office to offer students "an alter-
native viewpoint due to all the campus
organizations which are so liberal."
According to DeGraff the LSA Student
Government is "an invisible gover-
nment whose only purpose' is to spend
money."
Voting will take place Tuesday and
Wednesday in various locations around
campus. In addition deciding between
the two slates for president and vice
president, LSA students will chose 15
representatives from among the 13
SAID candidates, one SPOCK can-
didate, and 8 independent hopefuls on
the ballot.
