4 H 1 1 _ A Penny for Your Thoughts • 1 • # •9 if 0 o » i am fiy PETER feDSON WASHINGTON (NEA) — Mill* cnce of the U.S. Constitution and the power of the U.S. Declara* tion of Independence in the new nations of the world are little appreciated. Eloquent testimony on this point has just been given by Tan* garjyika's President Julius K. Nyerere. "We have taken our stand on what is one of the most inspiring documents of all time the preamble to the American Constitution," he tie- ciared on his arrival here for a visit o the U.S. "ft says, 'All men are created equal and arc endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. • • / " 4 Actually, this is a paraphrase from the Declaration of Inde­ pendence, but the mm made his science at University of Editv The tranters of uftdemttfted point. The president's short talk was principally a defense of the new Organisation of African Unity declaration against racial policies of Sduth Africa. So it was natural that the first question asked him Was what United States policy should be toward that country. He ducked, claiming an answer Would be interference in American foreign affairs. But in reference to his remarks on the U.S. Constitution he proposed that, "The United States should support freedom movements whereVer they are found." HE IS A SURPRISING little man. Forty years old, he is descended from tribal chiefs. But he was educated in a Catholic college in Uganda, did graduate work in economics and political burg. He gave tip teaching for politics only a few years ago and received an honorary LL.D. from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh when he was here as Tanganyika's foreign minister 'two years ago. He speaks precise English with a clipped British accent acquired when Tanganyika was a crown colony., He has a i*eady smile and a little Charlie Chaplin mustache that is deceptive. He has a quick wit and is representative of the new breed of African leaders at their best. In a question-ahd-answer session after his talk at the National Press Club, Nyerere was asked, "If the United States solves its own racial problems, will its position be more acceptable in the cold war?" plied quickly the American Declaration of Independence did Mt have the cold war in .fwind. I hope ym color problem here is kwked at from the moral standpoint and not from the, viewpoint of the cold War 1 . "We would like to see * United States of Africa/' he said in reply to another question. "Ymj cant think of 'federation' without thinking of the United States of America/' Nyerere thinks fie will see this federation in his lifetime. He sees nothing to prevent It. % Who would head such a federation? "We do not know," he says, "but the hopes of some will not be fulfilled." SINCE ISRAEL IS now giving technical asisstance to" Tangan 41 Morality is morality," he 're- yika, Nyerere was asked if this be 'yes 1 ? unity?

If an East African Federation were to come • into being, Ny­ erere was asked if he would be willing to play second string to Jomo Kenyata, the 73-year-old Mau Mau leader recently sworn in as prime minister when Kenya received internal self-government from the British, "After what I have been saying," said the president with a shy smile, "shouldn 't the answer • * * Cape Res rt Sells 4*" 4^' ?*1t ft] SB Jim it* UK mm • v%-*;; .Til 1 i wmm. >»4 ass?

It's the one place on earth where 'the Russians co-operate with everybody in perfect harmony. "Wherever the population is all penguins," Mr. Cleveland explains, "we can get international co-operation. If the population is people, it's more difficult." THE DEFENSE Department has discovered that women are letters addressed to Saigon, Indonesia, or Saigon, Laos. But eventually he gets them at his station in Saigon, Viet Nam. U. S.

The other man had nothing through which his identity could be learned. After the election, however, the railroads brought suit to enjoin enforcement of the any U. S. or U.

Secretary McNaniara estimates that t he department now is saving $1,330 a year by using ordinary women's hair wave clips at two cents each in place of more complicated gadgets *at $1.35 each formerly used to prevent soldering heat from damaging transistors during manufacture. AT THE LUNCH honoring the successful American climbers of Mt. Everest, National Press Club President Bryson Rash noted that the expedition tried to locate some mementos claimed to have been left at the summit by a communist Chinese team. Since the Americans failed to turn up any trace of the communist expedition, Rash concluded: "Either the Chinese didn't climb the mountain, or Khrush- her English so she could go to chev sent Mikoyan up there to college in the United States some get rid of the evidence." HANDLING FAN MAIL from irate citizens at home is one of the newer problems of U. S. ambassadors stationed abroad. If Americans don't like the way things are going in some foreign trouble spot country, they write the U. S. ambassador to ask what's wrong and why he doesn't run things better. Some of the letter writers aren't too sure of their geography. Ambassador Frederick E. Nolting Jr„ back in Washington for con- overturned and burned, the pay sulfations recently, says he gets is $500. day. Asked about how she intended to get enough money for this, the girl replied, "Oh, I get paid for taking part in demonstrations staged by the communists." For small marches, it was learned, they pay the crowd $150. For riots where they want cars SEN. NORRIS COTTON, R-N, H., says of the Area Redevelopment program: "Tax-paid projects steered to the party faithful have always been called 'pork.* "Plain-spoken old John Garner of Texas used to boast, 'Every time a Yankee gets a pound of pork, I take a barrel fot* Texas/ Texas is one of the states that has been getting the lion's share from Area Redevelopment. "I bet old John is chuckling as he sits on his porch down in Uvalde." DEFENSE SECRETARY Robert McNamara has taken note of newspaper editorials advising,him that he would get further with Congress if he were more discreet and tactful in his attitude. He told newsmen at his last press conference he had decided to take this' advice. Therefore, he said, answering a query, he would not comment on recent statements by Rep.

The Southern, which assured itself a good measure of safety against the ravages of "industry­ wide bargaining" by withdrawing from a national conference committee back in 1960, employs 18,000 people. In dealing with the five big railroad labor unions it has followed a policy of "one bite of the apple at a time." The present feeling of its president, D. W. Brosnan, is that the firemen's issue is the only one of transcendent importance to the Southern — so, accordingly, the railroad has published no notice effecting the employment conditions of engineers, conductors and switchmen. As for its argument with the firemen over the problem of their "featherbedding" on locomotives that have no fires to stoke, the Southern has reached an agreement that promises a so­ lution through attrition. Every fh'eman' now employed by the Southern has been guaranteed a job to natural retirement age. But the railroad has served notice that it will not hire any new firemen to replace those who die, or quit work, or are pensioned because of age, sickness or injury. LAST WINTER the Southern was indeed threatened with a strike for refusing to hire new men who are not needed for work that does not exist. The threat came from outside the Southern system, from the national firemen's organization. But an injunction kept the dispute from coming to a head — and if or when the Southern is ever "struck," it will have no connection with the troubles that are scheduled to go before, Congress for "stand and deliver" solution. Part of what might be called the single blessedness of the Southern system is the fact that its present employment of firemen and other technologically obsolescent workers does not constitute the drain on its finances that similar employment compels deal with a fragmented problem the railroads of the northeast to accept. But if special circumstances are to be considered when it comes to pushing labor policy differences to the brink of a strike, certain railroads of the northeast should be excepted from a strike call along with the Southern. It makes no sense from anybody's standpoint, whether of management or the unions, to monolithically. Take the New Haven Railroad, for example. This road, which feeds commuters into New York City and Boston and forwards a good deal of freight into New England from the West, has been in bankruptcy for a couple of years.
