JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Sen. Edward Kennedy said
yesterday he encountered "the grossest
inhumanity of man to man" in South
Africa, and that anti-Americanism was
growing because of perceived U.S. sup-
port for apartheid.
Flying back from South-West Africa,
where he had pledged for an end
to South African rule over the neigh-
boring territory, Kennedy told repor-
ters he found South Africa's white
leaders "unresponsive and unrealistic"
on the prospects for race reform.
"I DID NOT gather from my conver-
sations with government officials that
they were committed to meaningful
progress on the basic issues of citizen-
ship, voting, and human rights for
blacks," Kennedy said.
The Massachusetts Democrat has
met three Cabinet ministers and many
anti-apartheid campaigners. He ends
his nine-day stay today with a speech in
Soweto, Johannesburg's huge black
township. His visit has been marked by
hostile exchanges with white officials
and a warm welcome from most black
activists.
Kennedy said he hoped to announce

measures soon which he wants
Congress to adopt on South Africa.
Much speculation has focused on
whether he will endorse the growing
U.S. disinvestment campaign or
propose milder legislation.
DISINVESTMENT IS a policy of
withdrawing investments from com-
panies that operate in South Africa. Its
aim is to put economic pressure on the
companies and the apartheid gover-
nment.
Kennedy said he encountered "A
siege mentality" among white officials
and a dramatic increase in polarization
between blacks and whites since his
brother, the late Sen. Robert Kennedy,
visited here in 1966.
He told reporters that "those like the
U.S. Ambassador," Herman Nickel,
who speak out against disinvestment
may get applause from white
businessmen, but they "do not realize
the depth and sense of passion and
restlessness" among blacks.
Nickel told a luncheon Tuesday disin-
vestment was the wrong way to oppose
race segregation, but that President
Reagan is committed to encouraging
reform.

"You've got to get on that plane. Do it
now. If you don't, you'll regret it.
Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow,
but soon, and for the rest of your life,"
Kelley said, imitating Bogart.
Other diehard fans like Inteflex
student Robert Levine noted that
Bogart never actually said "Play it

"He says, 'Play it, play it. You played
it for her, play it for me. Play it,
Levine said.

Kennedy
...attacks South African whites
Kennedy cited a growing refusal by
black leaders in South Africa "to iden-
tify with anything associated with the
South African government or the
United States." The senator said this
feeling was subtle but more pervasive
than the occasional Black Con-
sciousness protests against his visit.

because it's very chaotic right now."
She said women were looking back to
Da simpler time with clearer roles and
expectations.
Hite, author of the "Hite Reports"
on human sexuality, said society must
eliminate this double standard to
prevent a retreat to the old male and
female role models.
"Many men assume today that a
woman is having sex for pleasure...
that both the man and woman got what
*they wanted out of the encounter. In
fact, most women who go to bed with
men even today are doing so in an
emotional context, not just to gain a
moment's physical pleasure."
Hite said women's disappointment in
their relationships with men who see
sex as a strictly physical affair is
pushing women into conservative
movements, such as anti-Equal Rights
Amendment and other organizations
that support the conservatism em-
bodied by President Reagan.

"WHAT KIND of world do we want?
Should we urge that women be freer or
that men have sex only when they are
emotionally involved? Perhaps it is the
definition of masculinity we should seek
to change," she said.
"But whatever we decide about the
sexual revolution, whether we would
want both sexes to be sexually free with
nO' negative judgements, or whether
we would like both to become less
sexually preoccupied and more chaste,
it is the double standard that is wrong
and must be eradicated," she said.
The double standard, she explained,
is that men can have multiple sexual
relationships and women can't without
bringing upon themselves society's
censure, and society must find a middle
ground.
Hite said she thinks there is a third
alternative: reducing the pressure and
the expectation of men to have sex with
many partners to prove their
masculinity and at the same time give
women greater respect.
