The Boston Globe Saturday, October 20, 1979 TP I I'M II V ition plans snag Rhodesia talks By Jay Ross Washington Post LONDON - The Rhodesia settlement talks moved into their second phase yesterday and immediately ran into heated disagreements over transition measures leading to legal independence for the war-torn country. The differences among Britain, the Zimbabwe Rhodesian government and the rival Patriotic Front guerrillas were not surprising. It is generally acknowledged that the talks on the transition, involving elections, disposition of the warring military forces and a cease-fire, will be far more difficult than the just concluded 38-day talks that produced a draft constitution for an independent Zimbabwe. The nature and depth of the differences, however, demonstrated the difficulties Britain still faces in trying to bring about a negotiated settlement of the intractable 14-year-old independence issue. The Zimbabwe Rhodesian government "rejected out of hand" the possibility that Prime Minister Abel Muzorewa would step down and parliament would be dissolved during the transition period leading to elections. Britain had suggested such moves to Bishop Muzorewa in separate talks earlier this week as part of a plan in which London would temporarily resume authority US calls for an end to apartheid Reuter UNITED NATIONS - The United States called on South Africa yesterday to heed international appeals for an end to its policy of racial separation. In a statement marking the apartheid day of solidarity with South African political prisoners, US Ambassador Donald McHenry called the South African racial system "an affront to the dignity of mankind and a contravention of principles on which the United Nations was founded." In the statement, his first on the subject since he took over Andrew Young's post, McHenry said the United States joined in focusing international attention on political oppression in South Africa and particularly the plight of political prisoners there. "We share in this expression of solidarity with those prisoners and call for their release," he said. "The tragedy of political oppression in South Africa, as elsewhere, is not just the suffering and loss of dignity that it imposes on human beings but the ominous shadow it casts on the future." in its rebel colony, using a British administrator, aided by British civil servants, military and police. Taking a tough stance, Zimbabwe Rhodesian Foreign Minister David Mukome said the present talks were merely over implementation of the new constitution, which removes significant areas of control by the white minority. His government and parliament would continue to control the day-to-day operations of government pending election results, he said. Mukome noted that Britain had never exercised direct governmental authority in Rhodesia and he did not expect any agreement at the London conference to ignore this history. In the meeting, Muzorewa said transitional proposals presented by the Patriotic Front last month were "totally unacceptable." These call for an eight-member governing council during the transition equally divided between the front, on one side and the British and Muzuorewa administration on the other. Britain has also turned down the Front proposals. Patriotic Front spokesman Eddison Zvobgo said "it is preposterous to suggest" Muzorewa would stay in power during the transition. "It is the intention of the Patriotic Front and apparently shared by the British that there will be some other administration during that period. It is no time for delusions." The front also sharply differed with preliminary suggestions by British Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington that the interim period should be as short as possible with elections to be held two months after agreement at the London talks. Lord Carrington cited fears that the proposed cease-fire could break down if there were a long transition period. Thus, he said, there would not be time to register voters or to set out voting constituencies. Instead, he said, observers could be used to prevent fraudulent voting and rather than having individual constituencies there could be nationwide proportional voting for parties with each, party having a list of candidates in order of priority. This system was used in the controversial April elections that brought Mu-zorewa's unrecognized black-led government to power. Zvobgo said the front wanted a six-month transiton, registration of voters and constituency voting. Aside from these issues, he said, it would be impossible in two months to bring about a cease-fire in the 7-year-old war, release thousands of persons from detention and martial law in 90 percent of the country and hold election campaigns. USWORLD NEWS IN BRIEF Unions settle railroad strike CHICAGO Spokesmen for two striking unions said yesterday they have settled with the financially struggling Rock Island Lines. Despite the strike, the railroad has been operating with union employes for two weeks under a federal order. The Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerks reached a contract agreement with the railroad Thursday, said Jack Fletcher, executive director of disputes and procedures. The unions said the agreements provide for full retroactive pay back to Jan. 1, 1978. Retroactive pay had been one of the main issues in the strike. Turkey without government . ANKARA, Turkey Acting Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit yesterday told Turkey's president he was unable to form a new government, prompting the head of state to call in the opposition for advice on what to do next. Opposition leader Suleyman Demirel, of the rightist Justice Party, told reporters after his meeting with President Fahri Koruturk that the president had merely "consulted" him and had not yet asked him to try to form a government. 2d plea for killer's life denied CARSON CITY, Nev. - The US Supreme Court yesterday rejected another request to spare the life of convicted killer Jesse Bishop, who says he wants to be executed on schedule Monday. But his frustrated defenders renewed their efforts to stop the execution. The court voted 7-1 in Washington to reject the latest appeal filed in Bishop's behalf, by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. It was the second rebuff by the court this month to Bishop's defenders, who also have been turned down by the Nevada Pardons Board and various state and federal courts. Bishop has been condemned to death for murdering David Ballard, a Baltimore newlywed, during a holdup in Las Vegas in 1977. Italy airport resumes flights ROME International flights were resumed last night at Rome's Fiumicino Airport after President San-dro Pertini intervened in a dispute involving the country's air traffic controllers, airport authorities said. Italian air space was closed to civilian traffic yesterday afternoon when the country's 1200 air controllers, almost all of them air force officers, stopped work to back demands for demilitarization. After meeting with representatives of the controllers, Pertini told reporters a decree would be published next Tuesday providing for demilitarization of staff dealing with civilian air traffic. There was no word from the controllers, however, when they would be back on the job or when flights from the 62 other airports would resume. Americans polled on Cuba NEW YORK The furor over a Soviet troops in Cuba has helped reverse American sentiment on the issue of US recognition of the Castro government, an Associated Press-NBC News poll says. The public does not approve of the way President Jimmy Carter handled the Soviet combat brigade question, the poll found, but that has not harmed opinion of his overall foreign policy performance. The poll, taken Monday and Tuesday of 1600 adults nationwide, showed 39 percent favor full diplomatic relations, compared with 47 percent in December. Forty-four percent oppose such recognition, compared with 41 percent in the earlier poll, and 17 percent were not sure. Twelve percent were not sure in December. Hua ends first round of tour PARIS Chinese Premier Hua Guofeng yesterday ended a 36-hour tour of Brittany and Brest where his deputy premier toasted French naval brass and called for a closer relationship between the two countries' armed forces. He is expected to leave for West Germany tomorrow. Hua also will visit Italy and Britain during his three-week tour, which marks the first time a Chinese Communist leader has set foot in Western Europe. NAMES & FACES Bob Hope landed his first big-game fish this week, in a tournament off the northwest Florida Gulf Coast. Hope caught a 70-pound white marlin, which is a billed member of the swordfish family. Hope said: "I'll have that kid mounted, and I'll have a 40-minute story about it to boot " The catch put Hope in the lead in the billfish division of the tournament, and he may win a $500 prize. He said: "If I win the $500, 1 may buy a boat." Eldridge Cleaver, the founder of the Black Panthers, told an audience in Oakland, Calif, that he is a supporter of Dr. Sun Mynng Moon's Unification Church. Cleaver said he had spent a week at a "Moonie" colony in Booneville, Calif. He said: "I would rather be with the littlest Moonie than with Billy Graham, not because Billy Graham is so bad or the Moon-ies are so good, but because they do what they say." .JL ""Sw W 3 ' WLjM SPEAK NO EVIL - Princess Margaret, left, chatted with a member of the press in the garden of the British Consulate in Los Angeles. They had a nice conversation about the weather, the earthquakes and the opera, and nobody ever used a three-letter word beginning in "P" and ending in "G." Watching reporters like a hawk, Consul-General Tom Aston, center, told them: "There will be no notebooks ... no tape recorders in the garden." Reporters and photographers had to be sniffed by a guard dog before entering. (AP photo) Those of us who have wondered for years: "Where do the buzzards who come back to Hinckley, Ohio, come back from?" need wonder no longer. They come back from Miami, that's where, and they have just come back to Miami from Hinckley, to spend the winter. But whereas people in Hinckley go crazy every March when the buzzards return, nobody in Miami gives a hoot. The buzzards roost in the Dade County Courthouse tower, and former courthouse building superintendent George Griffith says: "No one ever gave a whoop for them. They're an awful rotten-looking piece of equipment when you View them up close." PAYMENT IN FULL - On Feb. 19, 1773, Button Gwinnett wrote a receipt for four pounds, two shillings, in full payment of a debt owed him. Little did he suspect the receipt would someday be worth $100,000. Several years later, Gwinnett signed another piece of paper the Declaration of Independence, and because of that, composer Paul Francis Webster paid a record $100,000 this week for Gwinnett's autograph. Webster's own autograph may be worth a bit. He has written at least 65 songs, including "Secret Love," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" and "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good." New York dealer Charles Hamilton holds the autograph. (AP photo) The 1980 Guinness Book of World Records, just published, lists the record holder for the largest TV contract per syllable uttered. It was James Coburn, who enters a western-style tavern dressed in cowboy attire and looking mean as blazes, and says just two words: "Schlitz Light!" for which he was paid $500,000 - $250,000 per syllable. -SAM HEILNER k $o$ton 6Iobc Published by Globe Newspaper Company 135 Morrissey Blvd Boston.
