A cover letter, written in early July, says reports are circulating in Washington that President Nixon has rejected the State Department’s recommendation to withdraw the U.S. consulate from Rhodesia. Another report says that Union Carbide and the Foote Mineral Company are urging the White House to allow resumed imports of chrome ore from Rhodesia. Congressman Diggs has introduced an amendment to the Federal Aviation Act that would have the effect of restricting the landing rights of South African Airways in the U.S. on the basis of its discriminatory practices. The newsletter discusses Portugal and the U.S. Air Force base in the Azores. strong>Contents: 1. Nigeria-Biafra • 2. SAA and FAA • 3. The Sugar Quota • 4. Congressman Diggs and His Subcommittee • 5.
