Mandela calls for South Africa fair to all races

Associated Press

Nelson Mandela said yesterday
that he seeks a South Africa that is
fair to whites and blacks, and he
insisted that violence against apart-
heid is justified.

The 71-year’old black leader, en-
joying his first full day of freedom
after 27 years in prison, defended
the policies of his African National
Congress but said talks with the
government could be held soon.

In the tribal homeland of Ciskei,
10 blacks celebrating Mandela’s
release Sunday night were shot and
killed by police, and 20 were in-
jured, according to the Daily Dis-

ex—CIA says

Contributing Writer

American businessmen are the
last to arrive on the international
scene because their educational
system has failed them, according
to former KGB and CIA agent
Vladimir Sakharov.

At a press conference yesterday
at the Lafayette Club, Sakharov
said that the US. educational sys-
tem teaches students very little
about foreign relations, which is
taking its toll on America‘s busi-
ness community.

Sakharov said many Soviet con-
sumers are hungry for Western

Sakharov said that a multi-party
system can work in the Soviet Un-
ion. The Communist Party its grip,
and if Soviet President Mikhail
Gorbachev wants to stay in power,
he will have to create a strong pres-
idency, Sakharov said.

The most pressing issue in the
SOviet Union is the rise of women’s
liberation movements, Sakharov
said. The ratio of women to men is
5-to-3.7, and 19 million women be-
tween the ages 18 and 22 will not
get married, he said.

“Women are the suffering major-
ity in the USSR," which will
make or break Gorbachev, Sakha-
rov said.

Sakhar0v said that “women run
Russia" because many Soviet men
are complacent. As a result of
women’s efforts to organize, the
Soviet Union may have a woman
president before the United States
does, Sakharov said.

Unless the United States gives
the Soviet Union financial help,
Sakharov said a civil war could
erupt or Russia itiight revert to its
czar rulership.

Pamyat is one of the movements
pushing for a return to a dictator re-
gime, Sakharov said.

Mandela’s release
leaves Pretoria
uncertain future

The release of African National Congress leader Nelson
Mandela Sunday is a reason to rejoice, but the uncertainty of
what lies next for South Africans should cause world leaders to


Mandela said Sunday and yesterday that while he hopes for a
peaceful settlement between blacks and the white-controlled
government, he refuses to rule out violence.

Mandela has spurred some radical elements of the black
South African resistance to proclaim that it is time for blacks to
overthrow the white Pretoria government violently.

Those statements understandably upset whites who fear that
their nation is in danger of slipping into social anarchy and


It may be tempting for some black leaders to advocate violent
overthrow of the South African government, but that route
surely would be more costly than beneficial to South Africans.
A civil war likely would do even more to polarize blacks and
whites, which could take generations to mend.

Mandela’s role should be to stabilize relations between ethnic
groups through peaceful negotiations. He appears to be one of
the few South Africans who can command the respect of many
blacks and whites, and therefore, he should act as a negotiator
to bring an eventual end to apartheid.

Pretoria also should not pretend that releasing Mandela will
be enough to satiate blacks’ demands. President F.W. de Klerk
should work with Mandela toward achieving a peaceful
resolution to the nation’s domestic turmoil.

The developments in South African are yet another example
in which there is little opportunity for the United States to
affect the outcome directly. The Rev. Jesse Jackson has been
conducting his 1992 presidential from Cape Town by
becoming a sudden spokesman for black South Africans. But
most US. leaders have been limited to issuing press releases
or commending de Klerk for freeing Mandela.

One action the United States can take is to encourage dc
Klerk’s government to meet the remaining four conditions and
remove the US. sanctions imposed by Washington.

Washington should join other Western nations in prodding
both sides to avoid the temptation of violent confrontation and
work to ensure a peaceful resolution for South Africans.

Bush not a DSA


The recent (Tuesday, Feb. 6)
Kentucky Kernel article entitled
“Trail of local activist gets under-
way today" contains a subtle error,

notes that Mr. Chris Bush “was in—
volved in a number of campus acti-
vist groups, including Socially
Concerned Students and Democratic
Socialist of America,” although not
a student, at the time of his arrest
during the fall 1989 semester.

This is not precisely true. Mr.
Bush paid membership dues to join

Dear Barry: First. I admire
your candor. However, being inex-
perienced at making decisions
doesn‘t mean that you can’t make
an effective decision.

There is a process that allows
you to make a “considered" choice
which reduces the probability of
picking an “unwise" alternative. So
let’s talk about how to get started
in this process.

Being undecided is not bad. The
tension associated with being unde-
cided provides the motivating force
to initiate the decision-making pro-

Socialist of America in 1988 and
interacted significantly with the
campus chapter during much of that
year. (As in most cities with com-
munity and campus chapters are
quite porous, and members — like
myself, Mr. Bush and others — did
and do float between them.) How-
ever, by the fall of 1988 Mr. Bush

cantly with DSA, but was operat-
ing primarily within the organiza-
tional boundries of Socially
Concerned Students.
