The memorandum says on Thursday, July 8, Frank Loescher, Lyle Tatum, Steve Thiermann and I held a telephone conference to discuss in an open-ended way some possible directions for the Southern Africa Program; at its June 16 meeting the Southern Africa Committee asked that this subcommittee meet to think creatively about program options, especially in Africa itself. The memorandum says the AFSC has, in a sense, an unfinished commitment in Zimbabwe (Southern Rhodesia) left over from the years of the Quaker Representatives there. The memorandum says an AFSC delegation (composed, say, of Lou Schneider, Southern Africa Committee members, TWC representatives, Board members, and British Friends) to the independent and white supremacist countries may be useful. The memorandum discusses Lou Schneider, the Namibia Institute, the Carter administration, Jim Bristol, Patricia Hunt, Rosemari Mealy, Jeanne Newman, Lou Schneider, Mike Simmons, Bill Sutherland, Quakers, propaganda, and church leaders.
