Rhodesia anti-Marxist call hints 'stop Mugabe' drive

The Rhodesian Herald has quoted former Prime Minister Ian D. Smith as saying the country's minority whites may have to side with a guerrilla leader, Joshua Nkomo rival. His remarks will inevitably be seen in Rhodesia as virtual endorsement of Mr. Nkomo and the foundation of a coalition of disparate political forces arrayed in a "stop Mugabe" movement.

Meanwhile, campaign violence struck a black suburb near Salisbury Thursday with a firebomb attack on the home of an official of Mr. Mugabe's party. Police said a crude gasoline bomb was thrown through a window of the home in St. Mary's Township. The official's daughter was burned as fire destroyed the front room.
