THE VANCOUVtR SON: WtO., JAN. 26, 19.7 Rhodesian uncertainty brings white exodus IMPAIRMENT CHECK ASKED East African Airways grounded briefly Sun News Dispatches SALISBURY - Stepped up guerrilla warfare and uncertainty about the future have touched off the biggest white exodus from Rhodesia in 13 years, emigration figures show The government reported that 14,854 whites left Rhodesia last year and 7,782 arrived a net loss of 7,072. In contrast, Rhodesia had a net gain of nearly 2,000 whites during 1975. More than 4,000 persons have been killed since the war broke out in late 1972, more than half of them last year. Most of the casualities have been black guerrillas. Prime Minister Ian Smith's rejection of British settlement terms this week has increased the threat of bloodshed. Black African and Rhodesian nationalist leaders reacted with warnings that intensified warfare now is the only course left open to obtain black-majority rule. In Salisbury Tuesday, Smith met his cabinet and it is thought they discussed plans for pursuing an internal settlement with those he regards as moderate Rhodesian nationalists. "It is clear there is no other way than war," a senior Zambian politician, Reuben Kamanga, said. Officials from the Patriotic Front nationalist alliance of Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo said the first priority now is the military defeat of the Smith government. Meanwhile, British envoy Ivor Richard said today he will resume his shuttle tour of southern Africa Thursday despite Smith's policy. Richard said he would fly to Botswana and then on to Lusaka, where he expects to see President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia and the secretary-general of the Organization for African Unity, William Eteki Mboumoua. He said his plans after that were not certain but he hoped to be back in London by the middle of next week The Rhodesia crisis has been put at the head of the agenda for talks that U.S. Vice-president Walter Mondale will have with government officials in London Thursday. Prime Minister James Callaghan and his foreign secretary, Anthony Crosland are seeking the views of President Jimmy Carter's administration. TOKYO ( AP) - Pilots flying for Japan Air Lines should be checked with alcohol-detection equipment before takeoff, the Japanese Transportation ministry said today in a statement that officials said was virtually an order. A JAL cargo jet crashed on take off Jan. 13 at Anchorage airport in Alaska, killing all five crew members and a cargo of beef cattle. An autopsy showed that the American captain, Hugh Marsh, 53, of Tokyo, had a blood alcohol content of .21 per cent, twice the level for a conviction in Alaska for drunken driving. The transportation ministry's civil aviation bureau said similar advice will be issued Thursday to All-Nippon Airways, Japan's other major airline. It said each airline would decide what kind of alcohol detection devices to use. NAIROBI (UPI) - Financially troubled East African Airways was grounded briefly today by the Kenya government for failure to pay landing fees, and Tanzania made an immediate grab for company planes on its territory. The airline, the international carrier for Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda with routes to Europe, Africa and the Far East, has run into major financial problems because of widening political differences between member states. The latest crisis began when Tanzania and Uganda refused to remit funds to the airline headquarters in Nairobi and EEA ran up landing fee debts In Kenya. Coffee group orders study to explain spiralling prices South African gov't claims terrorist movement smashed Sun News Dispatches CAPE TOWN - Police Minister Jimmy Kruger held up a Soviet-made sub-machinegun in the debating chamber of parliament Tuesday and said his men had broken up a terrorist movement in South Africa. Kruger said 80 armed and trained blacks had been arrested in various parts of the country in recent months. "We are dealing with a devilish snake in South Africa," Kruger said. "We have hold of this snake and are breaking its back regularly. But as far as urban terrorism is concerned, it is totally finished." Kruger said last year's race rioting which left 499 people dead was instigated by the African National Congress and the South African Communist party, both banned organizations. He said the submachine-gun and a booby-trapped ANC poster had both been found in Soweto, the huge black township outside Johannesburg, about 1,000 miles northeast of here. Meanwhile, one of South Africa's highest-ranking Roman Catholic bishops said Tuesday the opening of church schools to all races last week was not an act of defiance against the government. "It is an act of compliance with the teaching of the Church and the law of God and the Gospel," said Archbishop Joseph Fitzgerald, chairman of the Southern African Catholic Bishops Conference. Several Catholic schools were racially integrated last week amid threats by the government that they would be closed for violat- Amin names No. 2 six years after coup NAIROBI (Reuter) -President Idi Amin named his defence minister, Gen. Mustafa Adrisi, as vice-president Tuesday, the first such appointment since the Ugandan leader came to power six years ago, Uganda radio reported. The appointment was announced by Amin at celebrations in the Ugandan capital of Kampala to mark the anniversary of his military coup which toppled the civilian government of Milton Obote. The radio, monitored-here in Kenya, said Maj.- Gen. Isaac Lumago was appointed new chief of staff for the armed forces, a position held by Mustafa.' The new vice-president will remain defence minister. Earlier, as part of the anniversary celebrations, Amin awarded medals to 2.000 Ugandans, including his wife Sarah and son Mwanga. He said both worked with him during the Israeli commando raid on Uganda's Entebbe airport last July, which rescued more than 100 airline hijack hostages.

In another report, South African radio said Tuesday night that fierce fighting had broken out between guerrillas and A n g o 1 a n government troops in Angola after a dispute over stolen cattle. Sun News Dispatches LONDON The International Coffee Organization, shuddering from the unprecedented rise in world coffee prices, hat ordered a full investigation of the supply and demand problem. The organization's idea apparently is to convince consumers that coffee is, as the trade believes, in short supply. The group's executive board, meeting on Tuesday in London, named executive director Alexandre Fontana Beltrao of Brazil to make the study and submit a report at a meeting in September. The study will not reduce the cost of a cup of coffee, but it might help explain why consumers are paying so much more. "To the extent that better information will affect or steady the market, this should help," said a U.S. delegate to the conference. Today, the ICO will map out a multimil-lion dollar promotion campaign designed to convince consumers that coffee is good at any price. That move to be financed by both consumers and producers under terms of a six-year international coffee agreement that went into effect in October followed general agreement that neither study will do much to halt the rise of .coffee prices toward a predicted U.S. retail level of $4.25 to $5.00 a pound by the end of the year. Just across the street from ICO London headquarters, a department store was selling instant coffee for $7.51 a pound $1.88 for a four-ounce jar. Delegates said Beltrao's probe would concentrate on the expected supply for the next two years. It will try to determine how much coffee is grown, stored and exported and how much coffee is needed by importing countries, they said. The alleged coffee shortage has been questioned by consumer groups because of stockpiles. In the United States, the coffee boycott spread to include a hospital in Chicago and a New York City delicatessen. Mount Sinai Hospital and medical centre in Chicago said Tuesday it will stop serving coffee, in its cafeteria one day each week to protest spiralling prices. George Grafstein, who sells coffee for 30 cents a cup at his Second Avenue delicatessen in Manhattan, is pushing tea as a competitor at a nickel a cup.
