come clandestine.
Indeed, that’s the way South A f­
rica likes it. By creating the impres­
sion that it has b u ilt an atom ic
bomb and is prepared to use it, Pre­
toria achieves the desired effect o f
deterring its neighbors from support
for the African National Congress,
the leading political resistance group
in South A fric a . A threat to drop
atomic bombs on the capitals o f the
fro n t line states would have to be
taken seriously.
A t the same time, by keeping its
nuclear weapons under wraps.
South A fric a protects its already
tarnished political image from fu r­
ther ravages, and preserves external
economic ties— p articu larly those
with the United States and Western
Europe— that help sustain the sys­
tem o f white minority rule.

Moreover, that is the way the pre­
sent, openly-known club members
also like it. D oubt and confusion
about South A frica 's nuclear wea­
pons status permit the United States
and other nuclear weapons powers
to keep their com fortable illusion
that proliferation is under control.
So long as the clandestine prolifer-
ators remain discreet, the failure of
anti-proliferation policies need not
be acknowledged.
In fact, as nuclear supplies we
have contributed to the spread o f
the Bomb. We have also contributed
by setting an example as the world’s
foremost producer o f nuclear wea­
pons— its foremost practitioner o f
the d iplom acy o f nuclear d ete r­

The thought o f passage o f the 1 ‘/z
per cent property tax lim itation (Bal­
lot Measure 3) is sending shock waves
th roug ho ut our C ity governm ent.
The S tre e t B eat team hit the streets
to gather c itiz e n ’ s response w ith ,
“ W h a t’ s your reaction to B allot
Measure 3, and do you think it w ill
produce a crisis in city services?”
" M y mother is just buying a
house and it’s hard on her with
all the bills that are associated
with owning one. The services
that they say will be cut aren’t
doing that much for us, any­
way. But on the other hand they
m ight hurt some people. I ’ m
going to vote no.”
Rose City's annual
" I feel quite bad about it. I ’m
not a property owner so I ’m not
concerned about the tax sav­
ings. The services that w ill be
affected will really hurt if they
are cut or abolished. I wanted to
have some dental w ork done
and now I have to w ait."
Louise Spears
It will be bad for us all if Bal­
lot Measure 3 is passed. It will
affect schools and lib raries.
Times are hard and homeown­
ers will have to ride like the rest
of us. I ’m voting no on 3 ."
Americans may well worry about
the growing problem o f world-wide
nuclear weapons proliferation. But
we are not lik e ly to be able to do
much about it until we have faced
up to the problem o f our own nu­
clear weapons excesses.
" W h o are you to point the finger
at us?" I was asked many times in
South Africa. It was a question for
which I had no adequate answer.
