Mrs. Josephine Brown was the director of the Sun Fun and Summer Enrichment Programs. .. . AN The world's top diplomatic post is up for grabs, and, without fan fare or flare, the race has . begun. The job is secretary general of the United Na tions, which for the past ten years has been held by Kurt Waldheim of Austria. His second term ends in December, and no one has ever won a third. But most UN observers say he is the current favorite. To win, a candidate must first be recommend ed by the Security Coun cil, and that requires the unanimous consent of the five permanent members Britain, China, France, the U.S., and the USSR. Then a majority of UN members voting in the General Assembly must agree. If, as is widely predicted, Waldheim runs again, he may be hard to beat. And there is talk of a Latin American candidate as - well. Apparently to boost his chances, Waldheim has recently visited the capitals of each of "the five. " He also made his customary ap pearance last month before the Organization of African Unity summit. After he left, however, the African leaders decid ed upon Tanzania's foreign minister as their candidate for the senior UN post. Martha Honey profiles Africa's nominee, who with fifty countries behind him nearly one third of the UN's 154 members must be con sidered a serious challenger. DAR ES SALAAM Salim Ahmed Salim is something of a maverick. He's young, a political ac tivist, and he is from the Third World. Before becoming foreign minister in 1980 he served for ten years as Tanzania's chief represen tative at the UN. While there Salim chaired the Special Committee on Decolonization, presided over sessions of both the ' Security Council and the General Assembly, was Sears JT Low Price 3M " Scotch-Brite material.

World Tanzania's Salim Vies For Top UN Post active with the Africa Group and the Nori Aligried Movement, and was intimately involved in negotiations surrounding many of the . decade's political crises. He was widely regarded as the most experienced and powerful African diplomat at the UN an assessment confirmed by the OAU vote. "I felt the only way I could enter into the field was with the solid support of all African countries' he explains. Terming the OAU endorsement "ex tremely rewarding," he'J adds that it also "shatters the myth that Africans are , incapable of uniting behind a single candidate." Salim himself is instant ly likeable. Outgoing, wit ty, and cAS4UuhesrruleftAS hew 'Shakes ; -hands? 1 thoughtfully considers questions - and, with meticulous logic, develops his answers. Colleagues testify to his adeptness at diplomacy. Former British UN representative Ivor Richards termed Salim "a man capable of leading his allies and at the same time of winning the confidence of his adversaries." Another high UN official calls him "an extremely patient, intelligent and skilled negotiator." Still, the big powers may prefer someone less outspoken. "The Americans and Russians are difficult to fathom," says one UN insider. "It's conventional wisdom that they are the most conser vative." Indeed, in a remark seen as endorsement of a third term for Waldheim, a Soviet diplomat at the UN was reported to have declared recently; "Old shoes fit best." And the Reagan administration can find many areas of disagreement with Tanza nian positions that Salim has long defended sup port for the Palestine Liberation Organization, for economic sanctions against South Africa, for the Cuban presence in Angola, and for a Nami bian settlement based on an unmodffied ; UN Resolution 435. ;tBul .Sadiro's, supporters argue that -it -willr be dif ficult for the Soviets to oppose him if the Third World lines up behind him. And these backers say he has demonstrated that he can differentiate his roles and can carry out UN responsibilities even when they are at variance with Tanzania's policies. Salim believes UN employees should be inter national civil servants, committed to the goals of the institution rather than their individual countries. He argues that "the spirit of internationalism has been seriously eroded," and says, as secretary general, he would "wortf to revitalize it." Salim does not, however, deny the realities of power politics. "It'sv unthinkable today that the secretary general could act in as independent a man ner as Dag Hammarskjold did," the Tanzanian remarked. "He must take into account the views of the world powers, par , ticularly the U.S. and Soviets." Some charge that Salim's record as a Third World activist would leave him with a bias in the theoretically neutral post. But fellow Africans argue that his record is an asset, making him engaged and credible. Said one: "So meone from the Third World and with credibility in the Third World has more of a chance of resolving the problem areas in the Middle East, southern Africa and so on. Salim's opposition to colonialism is combined , with firm support (or negotiations' Salim's , years of political experience belie his age, which is also a possible mark against him, at least on some scorecards. Half apologetically, half pro udly, Salim describes himself as nearly 40." (He was 39 last January.) "You know," he muses, the age of 40 is old for an African." "Now," he adds with a smile, "my age is being raised in a different way. Some people are saying I can afford to wait." NORTHGATE MALL Open Monday thru Saturday' 9:30 A.M.

As in most countries, people have expressed fears about giving answers, feeling that the data might be used against them in some way. But President Masire has assured the people that "the information col lected in a census is treated in the strictest confidence. Details relating 40 in dividuals are never releas ' ed, no matter what the cir cumstances."
