A10 Palm Beach Post, Thurs., November 14, 1968 As Result Of Election Closer U.S., State Ties Seen No Solution Foreseen By Zambia On Rhodesia subcommittee could become a key source of possible reforms. There Is broad support, too, for decentralization of federal programs. Both presidential candidates called this year for some sort of tax sharing plan, Involving turning over federal revenues to the states, along the lines of the proposal made four years ago by economist Walter W. Heller but never adopted by the Johnson administration. One of the big question marks is how far events, especially In the cities, will shape a Nixon administration. For one thing, any end to the Vietnam war will almost certainly generate demands from Congress and elsewhere for stepped up federal spending on education and the cities. Nixon has indicated he favors tax reductions and increased defense spending. In addition, Nixon has the dismantlement of the Office of Economic Opportunity. But there will be no disagreement from key congressional leaders on the need to overhaul and simplify the overlapping federal grant programs that have brought so many complaints from local officials because of the paperwork Involved in getting the federal funds. In fact, It has been Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield who has repeatedly stressed the need for congressional study of the way new programs are functioning. With Republicans In power, congressional Democrats may be more eager to do this than they have been until now. When It comes to federal-state relations, Sen. Edmund S. Muskle of Maine, the defeated Democratic vice presidential candidate, is considered one of the leading experts, and his Intergovernmental relations political poblem of broadening his base of support to what pollster Louis Harris calls the "change coalition." the racial minorities and the growing number of affluent suburbanites who favor government action to Improve the quality of society and its institutions. Harris said in a talk last week to the National Press Club that Nixon was elected primarily by "the more responsible elements" of what he called the "no change coalition" but that this group is dwindling. He said Nixon probably received a majority vote this time from members of the "change coalition" because of the Vietnam war and the feeling that a change was needed. But he said the new presl dent's crucial test will be how well he can build bridges to this group expected to grow from 25 oer cent of the elector ate to 35 per cent over the next four years, so that he can maintain this support when he seeks an expected second term In 1972. This will determine not only-the shape of his administration, but ultimately, Harris said, which party becomes dominant In the 1970s. Penally For Priest Lift By Vatican SA DIEGO. Calif.

DISPATCH OFTHETIMES, LONDON By MICHAEL HOLFERS LUSAKA, Zambia Zambia cannot foresee any satisfactory negotiated solution on Rhodesia outside of the government's policy of no independence for Britain's breakaway colony before majority rule there. President Kenneth Kaunda told me in an exclusive interview here. If any other solution were agreed, the president said, there would be "sharp reaction" from several African countries. People in Britain thought Zambians bloodthirsty in demanding the use of force against the regime of Prime Minister Ian Smith, Kaunda said, but nothing was farther Irom the truth. He cited the long liberation wars in Angola and Mozambique where he claimed the Portuguese were losing ground, and suggested that no one had the right to assume that Rhodesia would bo peaceful in the next few years. Three years ago no one had expected that guerrillas would be campaigning so strongly as to compel Smith to call on South African forces. If Britain mounted police action against Rhodesia, Klunda did not believe that the "handful of selfish men" behind Smith could resist. The president thought that Britain should establish a colonial government in Rhodesia to enable all concerned to come together and work out their future although this might lake years; Zambia's independence had come after some tour years of talks. On Nigeria's secessionist eastern region of Biafra, which has been recognized by Zambia as a dependent state. Kaunda said his country's policy was unchanged. He would continue to urge both sides to negotiate after a cease-fire, but he felt that "the Blafrans had been rejected by their fellow Nigerians before concession. British and Soviet arms supplies to .Nigeria should be halted, he said. Turning to the dangers of unrest during the Zambian general election period, Kaunda said this was a feverish time anywhere in the world. He had banned the United Party after violence had erupted. But he found the opposition, African National Congress, was now taking a "more constitutional attitude." He had given the police special powers for the election period, and anyone using intimidation against candidates or voters would be prosecuted. The president also said he would resist any moves towards a one-party state in his country, unless it became apparent through the polls that this was the people's wish. WASHINGTON (AP) - The 1968 election has opened the way for a period of consolidating, streamlining and modernizing the government after eight years of rapid growth. In the next few years, leaders of both parties feel that the central Issue will not be whether the federal government is to play a role in such fields as education, consumer affairs and urban problems but how much and what kind. And the structure of the government itself, especially the departments dealing with domestic affairs, and the broad area of federal-state relations, are likely to become subjects of increasing debate. In a sense, the second half of the Johnson administration has marked a watershed between the old New Deal type of federal aid program and newer kinds of programs involving broad cooperation between the government and private enterprise. In part, this has been forced on the government by the Vietnam expenditures producing large federal deficits and curtailing direct new spending programs. But it also represents an increasing awareness that the old boundary lines between the government and the private sector have dissolved. Thus, the model cities program, last of the major Johnson domestic programs to win approval, has tended to rest heavily on efforts to get private investors, such as the insurance companies, to put up funds for urban development. A similar pattern Is developing In some other areas, such as the Appalachian regional program, and in efforts to find jobs for hard-core unemployed. President-elect Richard M. Nixon has Indicated he thinks the private sector should be the major element In future urban programs, aided by tax credits which Congress is expected to be reluctant to vote. A compromise may result, similar to the pattern of model cities. There may also be balking In Congress, especially in the committees which wrote the original legislation, to Nixon's announced intention of scrapping the Job Corps, generally seen as a forerunner to a complete overhaul and possible Incredible Buy!
