Troops Seek African Guerrillas, Hostages Golesburg Register-Mail, Galesburg, lit. Mendfay, July 9, 1973 5 SALISBURY, Rhodesia (UPI) — Rhodesian troops, big game hunters and trackers searched heavy jungle near the Mozambique border today for African guerrillas fleeing with 13 hostages they kidnapped three days ago from a Roman Catholic missionary schopl. The g u e r r i 11 a s originally seized 292 African students and school employes from the remote school late Thursday, but most of the hostages subsequently escaped during clashes between pursuing troops and guerrillas. A government spokesman said troops lost contact with the guerrillas, but that they hoped to pick up the trail again today. The Rev. Egon Rojek, head of the St. Albert's mission, which is run by West German Jesuits, said the guerrillas,told African workers to fight the white supremacist regime of Prime Minister lan Smith. Rhodesia declared itself in* dependent of Britain in 1965. Its white population is heavily outnumbered by blacks. Listed by Rojek as still missing in the jungles in the north of Rhodesia today were seven primary school students, three teachers and three kitchen maids. Government sources said the guerrillas—officials said there were 17—were now believed within 40 miles of Mozambique. They said Portuguese army units based in that East African territory to fight African guerrillas were alerted. A 14-year-old student stum* bled across one of the patrols Sunday and collapsed from exhaustion, causing some teachers they wanted to train|speculation that the guerrillas the students and the mission's were abandoning their hostages in the deep jungle if they could not keep up. Archbishop Francis Mar kail, the spiritual leader of all Catholics in Rhodesia, flew Sunday to the mission 120 miles north of Salisbury to inves tigate. The mission is located in one of the most remote parts of Rhodesia and in an area where African guerrillas have been active since December. Farm ers in the region earlier urged movement of the mission to a safer area, but no action was taken on the matter. Mission sources said parents of the children were shaken by the kidnapping and said that many were now afraid to allow their children to finish their studies. They said the priests were urging them to let their children remain. READ THE WANT ADS!

S.-Czech Pact To Improve Relations ..... i PRAGUE (UPI) - Secretary of State William P. Rogers signed a new U.S.-Czech consular agreement today that his hosts called the first step towards contacts on other matters. Rogers also described the agreement as a "very significant step" in improving relations between the two countries. Rogers and Foreign Minister Bohuslav Chrioupek formally 'signed the agreement, the first of its kind between the United States and Czechoslovakia, j Rogers arrived Sunday from Helsinki to become the highest- TWO WEEK SPECIAL SELLING SELECTED PATTERNS OF Noritake Stoneware AND COLOR-COORDINATED GLASSWARE ranking American to make an official visit to Czechoslovakia since World War II. In a late-night walk along the cobblestone streets of the old part of Prague, Rogers appeared relaxed and chatty. "I hope this visit and the consular convention will open a new chapter in our relations," Rogers told newsmen. Chnoupek said the agreement "represents the first step to broader U.S.-Czech contacts in various spheres of life." The convention provides for an expansion of consular facilities on both sides and defines a specific time period in which consular officials must be allowed to get in touch with their nationals who have been detained by police in the other country. Rogers stayed up late with his host, Chnoupek, touring old drinking caverns and listening to gypsy music. Rogers and Chnoupek toasted each other with white wine in a 13th century wine cellar, the candle-lit "Golden Jug," and laughed as gypsies played "Oh Susanna" and "The Beer Barrel Polka" on their violins. At one stage during Rogers' walk Sunday night, a young unidentified American woman walked up to him and said, "Hey, who are you? You've got a very familiar face." Secret Service men hustled her away, her question unanswered. Rogers also planned several other meetings into his 24-hour visit, among them talks with Premier Lubomir Strougal and with Gustav Husak, the Czech Communist party leader. Formal talks also were planned with Chnoupek.
