Washington Watch SATURDAY, CCTC2EB 9. 1S22-TKE CAHCUNA TIS-11 U.S. Still Searching For Accord With Angola I AN In the continuing pursuit of an agreement that could clear the way for the Independence of Namibia, U.S. and Angolan officials- held another round of talks last week (September 27-29). . - The bilateral i discus sions, the latest in a regular series this year, su;e described by the Reagan : administration : as the "parallel track" to the ongoing multilateral negotiations : on Namibia. , The ' U.S. wants Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos to send , home the estimated J 5,000 to 20,000 Cuban troops that have been in his country since South Africa invaded in 1975 in hopes of installing a friendly regime in the newly-independent Por tuguese colony. ) ; Frank Wisner, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Af fairs, met in Luanda with Angolan Foreign Minister Paulo, Jorge. But dos Santos, whom Wisner has seen on three previous visits; did not receive him this time. " "Whether this was an indication of anything, we . don't . know," said one U.S. official. "Since the beginning of these in depth talks in January, we have tried to respond to their concerns, prin- ; cipally that of security," he said. "But we have not M; V achieved a breakthrough yet." Wisner saw dos Santos and Jorge when he was in the Angolan capital in t August and when he ac companied General Ver non Walters, a special ambassador k to the same city in June and July.' Previous sessions were, held between Assistant Secretary . of , State Chester Crocker ' and Foreign, Minister Jorge , in Paris in January and . March, and in Luanda in April. While ' the Angolan talks are snagged, U.S. officials believe -the; Namibian' negotiations have resulted in agree-1 ment on nearly all the outstanding issues. The Namibian independence movement SWAPO savs there are more 'unresolv ed matters to be worked on, but the tenor of statements from all par-1 (ies suggests that agree ment on the specifics of a cease-fire in the guerrilla war and the , ,-,pre-independenc'e election is ' within reach. '. A the same time, ,the South African govern ment has made clear that : its cooperation on a set-. tlement is contingent on ; the Cuban troop ' withdrawal, while '.the Angolan government has rejected any linkage bet-, ween the two issues. On the eve of Wisner's ar- radio said his visit "may be a failure if he raises the issue of Cuban troops in Angola." , -; . The Reagan ad ministration has sought to . define ; its ' position carefully to avoid offen ding either, side. But its determination to obtain agreement on the Cuban withdrawal is clear. While continuing ; the; bilateral talks with Angola, the U.S. has been working with the other members of the Western Contact Group on Namibia to iron out the remaining issues. France, one of the four tioi:, has been par ticularly active in recent months. SWAPO Presi dent Sam Nujoma was in Paris last month, for talks on the' progress in the negotiations. Following the talks, a senior French official said France does not - view the Cuban troop Issue in the same light as the Reagan administra tion. There are reports, : that French officials have, discussed the mat ter with the Cuban government' and with Angola directly. But the Western Five have also sought to maintain a united front on the Namibia negotia tions. Secretary of State George Shultz and the other Contact Group nations met ovct breakfast last Friday. (October I) at the United . Nations to discuss future . efforts. Y ; v Meanwhile, the Reagan - administration has discussed these southern African issues with the Soviet Union. U.S. officials .charge privately that the Soviets 1 have been urging Various parties, SWAPO and the Angolans in particular, to go slow in the negotia tions. For their part,, the Africans say the Soviets have been willing to pro vide the material support needed to defend against continued South African attacks on Angolan and Angola. ' On September 20, Crocker met in Geneva with Leonid - Hychev, deputy Soviet foreign minister. Their meeting was one of a series of bilateral - talks on regional issues. Shultz also discussed southern Africa in his meetings at the United Nations with Soviet Foreign Minister Andre Gromyko. U.S. officials say these sessions should not- be viewea .. as mm . . mm ' -.

It made his Christmas list of not yours. Furthermore, "Suspect" Secretary of Labor, Raymond J. Donovan, says, "We (the U.S. Labor Depart ment) are determined to carry out" the President's "pledge to eliminate unnecessary government spending at every turn." Pity the President did not apply that pledge to the entire budget and allow the people to pick what should be called un necessary government spending and therefore eliminated from the budget. There is a real infla tionary threat if the defense buildup severely strains America's pro duction capacity. Never theless, controversy in Congress and within the White House centers on not the size or cancerous growth ef the defense budget, but only on its selection of type of weaponry nuclear ver sus conventional war fare. With this type of thinking going on, only industries such as am munitions, electronic components, aircraft and radio, TV equip ment will benefit from bucks from Washington in the short term. Businessmen and women would do well to base near term planning on those projects which play along with this type of program or plan on elec ting a Democratic Con gress now and a new President in 1984. Coping Rejection: Whose Fault Is it? By Dr. Charles W. Faulkner Everyone has experienced the feeling of rejection at some point in life. Sometimes the rejection, is not justified. Sometimes the rejection is justified. How should one react to rejection? The case of a person who had been divorced four times might provide an answer: Smith fell in love at the age of 18 and married. The. marriage went well for a short period and then problems began. The once loving mate began to criticize Smith who began to sulk. Arguments occurred on a regular basis and the two people divorced. It was Smith's feeling that the former spouse was rude, uncompromising and dif ficult to get along with. So, Smith married again. The second marriage went well briefly but pro blems began to develop. Disagreements became fre quent. Hugs and kisses ceased. Sex no longer occur red. Smith obtained a divorce, but married again within a year. Much to Smith's dismay, the third marriage also ended in traumatic -divorce. Smith became disenchanted and could not decide whom to blame for the divorces. Was there something wrong with Smith or was each of the mates responsible for the problem? Unable to find an easy answer, Smith withdrew and became something of an introvert. Smith felt incompetent and unable to hold a mate. The fear of failure crept in and became so overpowering that Smith was afraid and reluctant to enter into another intimate relationship. The self-imposed isolation caused Smith much unhappincss. The unhappiness made Smith lose confidence and develop what amounted to a fear of people and a resentment of the opposite sex. On most occasions, a disagreement may be traced to a basic incompatibility. In such a case, no one may be solely blamed for the problems. The dif ference in values may be insoluble and may indicate that a divorce is called for. However, in cases of repeated breakup of personal relationships, inside or outside of marriage, this continual inability to enter into a prolonged relationship may result in unhappincss and emotional un fulfillment for the withdrawing person who is now troubled by the thought that he or she may have a major personality flaw that leads to cither turmoil or rejection. "Am I selecting the wrong kinds of mates?" "Am I doing something that causes them to dislike me once they get to know me?" "Am I only good enough to be used as a stimulating sex object and so boring as to have no ability to stimulate another person intellectually?" "Am I too overbearing and too domineering?" "Does my assertive personality drive people away?" "Am I unable to be a team player and work together with someone toward the fulfillment of a long range goal?" "Do I become bored too easily with people and show it in my behavior and facial expressions?" "Am I too selfish to share with another person?" "Do I view the world as antagonistic and will my behavior' an tagonize people?" "Is there something that do that turns people into my enemies?" "Or will disap pointments in my relationships with .the opposite sex continue until I make the determination to modify my behavior and inspire my partner to pre sent the kind of behavior, care and concern that I desire?" -)i:h.--t-:-r Somewhere in the above paragraph is the ques tion that you need to answer. It may be necessary for you to u& self-analysis and introspection to a more profound degree than you have ever before. But, you are intelligent enough to do what is necessary to obtain happjness in your life. 8 mg. "tar", 0.6 mg. nicotine av. per cigarette by FTC method.
