The mailing says a tennis team representing South Africa is scheduled to meet a U.S. team in international Davis Cup competition at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee March 17-19. The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has long been a major ally of South Africa in the International Tennis Federation, which governs Davis Cup (male) and Federation Cup (female) play. South Africa has been barred from the Olympic Games since 1964. The mailing urges people to protest this match to President Carter (Washington, D.C. 20500), Secretary of State Cyrus Vance (Washington, D.C. 20520) and/or Ambassador Andrew Young (U. S. Mission to the U. N., New York, N.Y. 10017) urging the denial of visas and a statement of public opposition by the U. S. government. The mailing includes sections on Anti-Krugerrand Actions, Corporate Shareholder Resolutions, and new publications.
