GDEN UTAH February 20,1981 Volume 42 Issue 33 Young's View Expounded Young Compliments Utah (Editor's note: the author is an student from Rhodesia. The view expressed are only those of the author not of the ' Signpost or of WSC) Andrew Young tells only the "white" side of his involvement in political negociations in Rhodesia. Young is a typical American politician who, when asked a question, will skillfully evade it. My question to Young was "As a christian don't you think you owe it to your audience to tell them that you support Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo, who are terrorist murders?" Young's answer to this question was a description of the wonderful job these men are doing in Rhodesia now. Those WSC students who do not know the "dark" side of Young ought to. Young was instrumental in supporting two black leaders who wanted to gain control of Rhodesia and did not care how they did it. Money support of these men was all from communist backed countries. These men tried to outdo each other in terrorizing the black people, their own people. Each had an army of terrorists who would sneak into Rhodesia at night from Zambia or Mozambique, go to the outlying villages and terrorize and torture innocent people in these villages. Young is a supporter of these "so called" leaders. When asked if he condoned the murdering, he said he did not. Why does he support it then? Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, is not doing well. People are terrified of the terrorists still wandering in the area. The economy has skyrocketed, farmers are just breaking even and people are leaving in droves. The majority of the black people are intimidated by the terrorists. Young stands behind the facade that he is a christian man; yet he was aware of the atrocities, knew who was responsible and still continued so support these two murdering men.

After complimenting Utah's beauty he acknowledged it and America as Gods Country, though there are many problems that must be solved. He stated that the majority of world leaders, even those in confrontation with America, had been educated in American institutions. For example, the Iranian invasion of the embassy was a concept learned from the American students of the 1960's. The organization of oil monopolies in the Middle East was set up after those educated in America saw the monopolies. Young has found that in the 65 nations he has visited, the people are interested in partnerships with America on issues. "The American culture is a global phenomenon," Young states," the world wants the same opportunities as Americans. They want the same education, development, growth and abilities to meet the needs of its people." He said that, although America feels insecure, the world still looks to her for leadership. From military support, political concepts and economic policies to McDonald's, blue jeans and music - America captures the imagination of the world. He states that the threat of the Soviet Union is real, yet overplayed. He feels we should be more concerned with manufacturing a peacetime marketable trade. Those between 18-25 had the lowest voting percentage in the country. The students need to be involved and participate in the political process in order to have their views and interests represented. "We should not despair, but be concerned with working out agreementments to respect and protect each others interests." summarized Young. Young then turned from his world views to students. "If all the student would at least register to vote they would draw the attention and concern of their congressmen and representatives." -0 Former U.N. ambassador Andrew Young addressed a large convocation audience Thursday in conjunction with Black History Month. Young is highly regarded as a representative of the U.S. in Third World nations and spoke on a number of topics concerning U.S. policy in those countries.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
