Cousteau request pending
RALEIGH (AP)-An advisory
committee left it up in the air Tuesday
whether it would allow French undersea
explorer Jacques Cousteau to film the
Two members of the advisory committee
on the Civil War ironclad, which lies
submerged off the North Carolina coast,
the panel should have editorial control over
any broadcast of the film Cousteau shoots.
Cousteau has asked permission to film the
wreck for three days in early June. His ship,
the Calypso, is expected to arrive in Norfolk
Va. next week and would go to the Monitor
site several days later.
The U.S.S. Monitor Technical Advisory
Committee voted to delay a
recommendation on Cousteau's request
until his organization could submit a more
detailed plan. It also delayed action on the
"Here's a chance, if properly told, of
having the Monitor story told to the
Ameican public so that we can have public
support," said W.A. "Sonny" Cockrell,
underwater archeologist for the state of
Florida and a member of the committee.
The committee advises the National
Oceanographic and Atmospheric
Administration on issuing permits to study
the ship, which sank during a storm off Cape
H at t eras. The ironclad lies in a federally
protected marine sanctuary.
-Cockrell said veto power over the script
was necessary "to have the story put before
the public in the proper perspective."
Added Barto Arnold, underwater
archeologist for the Texas Antiquities
Committee, "What would you think if they
(Cousteau's crew) don't like the idea of the
sanctuary and the run it down? I think they
should have the right to say they don't like
the marine sanctuary, but do we have to let
them film it?"
Larry E. Tise, director of the N.C.
Division of Archives and History and
chairman of the committee, said the
committee had previously recommended
that four groups be granted permits to study
the site and had not required veto power over
the resulting research publications. "I don't
see how we can demand to have final
authority over the script," he said.

exchanged rocket and shell fire across
Israel's northern border Wednesday, and
Lebanese provincial authorities reported
five persons killed and three wounded in
southern Lebanon. No injuries were
reported in Israel.
The Israeli military command said its
artillerymen began firing at Palestinian
gunners in Lebandn after several volleys of
Katyusha rockets landed in northern Israel.
A communique from Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat's high cammand in Beirut said
guerrilla positions in the foothills of Mount
Hermcn and two villages in the western
Bekaa Valley were the main targets of the
Israeli bombardment. The Palestinians said
Israeli shelling had provoked return fire.
Lebanese Foreign Minister Fuad Butros
told reporters his country would call for an
emergency session of the U.N. Security
Council to take up the "grave situation
created by Israel's daily attacks."
Since late last week reports from Lebanon
have claimed the Israelis were shelling
Palestinian bases in Lebanon regularly. The
army command in Tel Aviv had denied that,
implying Israel's Lebanese Christian allies
were behind the shelling. Reports from
Lebanon said today was the ninth straight
day of hostilities and that more than 60,000
people have fled their homes in southern
Lebanon so far.
Israel radio said Wednesday the Israeli
backed Christian militias in the southern
Lebanon border zone were exchanging fire
with Palestinian artillery farther north.
An Israeli army spokesman did not
identify the targets of the Israeli artillery fire,
but the PLO communique said they included
the villages of Suhmor and Yuhmor in the
western Bekaa Valley, 18 miles north of
Israel and about 10 miles west of Syrian
peacekeeping positions that serve as buffer
between rightist Christian and leftist
Moslem militias in eastern Lebanon.
Muzorewa names cabinet
SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) Bishop
Abel Muzorewa, Rhodesia's first black
prime minister, named his cabinet
Wednesday, keeping key defense posts for
himself and appointing outgoing white
Prime Minister Ian D. Smith as a minister
The 17-member cabinet, described as a
government of national unity, includes five
whites, two blacks from the United National
Federal Party which champions the minority
Ndebeie tribe, and 10 ministers from
Muzorewa's United African National
Muzorewa will act as prime minister,
minister of combined military operations
and minister of defense.
Two posts were left vacant because of a
boycott of the new government by the Rev.
Ndabaningi SitholeV Zimbabwe African
National Union. When it became clear in last
month's elections that his party would not
win a majority, he began claiming vote fraud
and promised not to participate in the
The government takes charge at midnight
tonight when the new state of Zimbabwe
Rhodesia is officially proclaimed.
The appointment of Smith who became
prime minister 15 years ago vowing to keep
whites in power for a mUlenium as a
minister without portfolio had been widely
expected Smith unilaterally declared
independence from Britain in 1965 to avoid
black majority rule in the former colony.
In his new role. Smith will serve as
minister for the white minority. He also will
be the strategist in seeking Western
recognition for the black-led state he was
forced to set up under increased pressure
from the six-year guerrilla war and economic
The United States and Britain had refused
to recognize the elections because guerrilla
leaders Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugabe
did not participate. They claim the new
government would only be a front for
continued white domination, pointing to
guaranteed white representation in
Parliament and the Cabinet and a five-year
extension of white control of the military,
courts and civil service. -
Young criticizes policy
WASHINGTON (A P) Ambassador
Andrew Young says congressional
conservatives supporting an end to
economic sanctions in Rhodesia are
attempting to force a Democratic party split
that will lead to a Republican presidential
victory in 1980.
"They don't 'give a damn about Africa.
They don't know anything about -Africa,
Young said Tuesday night in a speech.
With the Democrats already split on such
issues as energy and inflation, "the final nail
in the coffin would be an Africa policy that
did not respect the sensitivities of the black
voters or the young voters of this nation.
" Only hours before. President Carter told
a news conference he was still making up his
mind whether the United States should lift
sanctions against Rhodesia in light of moves
in that country toward black majority rule.
