(AP) —The loneliness of the big city no longer bothers the young delegate from Chad, but the snubs still' hurt. I "I've made some good friends j during my two years at the U.N. i General Assembly," said 24-year- j old Hissene Giuagoussou, "but as a Negro I've run into my share, of prejudice." Guiagoussou's experience typifies the problems encountered by hundreds of new delegates from 31 black African nations as they try to fit into a strange and sometimes hostile land. Guiagoussou has attempted to i shut out the hostility by spending most of his time at the U.N.'s big river-front headquarters. During the day, he does double duty in the assembly's economic and legal committees. Until his wife and infant son joined him recently, he devoted most evenings j to the endless round of U.N. parties. For a serious-minded intelectual the chatter of the cocktail circuit sometimes palls, but Guiagoussou still goes to many receptions. Contacts are essential to career diplomat and the free food and drink are welcome to anyone on a junior diplomat's pay. "It costs me nearly $50 a day just to live in New York," said Guiagoussou, "and that doesn't leave much for entertainment." Housing poses a major problem for African diplomats, especially those in the lower ranks. Most African missions refuse to let their delegates live in New York's Harlem, which they regard as segregated. New delegates usually avoid the suburbs because they can't afford cars. As a result, most seek quarters near their job. This means living in the high rent, color-conscious area of New York's East Side. There is a popular myth that a dark-skinned person can go where he likes in America—if he wears a foreign headdress. Guia- goussou, a Moslem who wears a fur-trimmed Fez, found otherwise. "When I first came to New York last year," he said, "I telephoned 'a rental agency for apartments, and he said he had just what I wanted. "But when I went there in person, he acted embarrassed and told me everything was booked." New York landlords rarely admit they turn down delegates on ; color grounds. The usual excuse is that delegates move too often and use diplomatic immunity to protect themselves from suits for j rent default or sudden departure. Guiagoussou feels the friendships he has made in America offset the humiliations. So far, Guiagoussou's contacts with America have been limited to New York, Westport and Washington where he works at the Chad Embassy when the assembly is recessed. But he plans to buy a car socn and take his family around the country. "I only hope the natives are friendly," he said. Storm Stops Moon Launch CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —The gusty winds of tropical storm Ella have forced a four- week postponement of the attempt to launch the Ranger 5 spacecraft: to the moon. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration had planned to launch the ipacenraft today, but called off the effort Tuesday night when Weather Bureau reports indicated there was a good chance the storm would cause unfavorable weather at Cape Canaveral the next several days. Preparations were made to remove Ranger 5 and its Atlas- Agena B rocket from the launch pad and move them to the safety of a hangar. The space agency had on!y a four-day period ending Friday j when the moon was in a favorable position for the Ranger 5 launch. The next optimum period begins about Nov. 13. Ranger 5's mission is to streak a quarter million miles to the moon, take closeup television pictures and land a cap rl: to register moonquakes and meteor hits. : France Negotiates Far Nuclear Sub WASHINGTON (API-France is negotiating with the United States | to buy a nuclear-powered suibma- ; rine, informed sources report. The submarine would be of the Nautilus class, the first of the j atomic submarines, which does' not carry Polaris missiles, the sources said Tuesday. There was- no official confirmation of reports of the sale negotiations. The State Department, the Pentagon and the White House declined' comment.
