So. Rhodesia Wants Selected Exiles

Southern Rhodesia’s willingness to accept refugees on a selective basis was voiced last night by Prime Minister G.M. Huggins at a dinner commemorating the birthday of “Empire Builder” Cecil Rhodes. “There are many worthy and excellent people who we should welcome to our country today,” Mr. Huggins declared. “But we have had more than we want and not necessarily the ones we want. And that is a tragedy. We do not want those who only wish to engage in the carrier trade. That is already overdone. Overtrading is the curse of Southern Rhodesia.”
