    INTRODUCTION: The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Mr Andrew Young, said in his recent visit to South Africa that blacks in Rhodesia had only half the life expectancy of whites. He also spoke of disease and malnutrition in the former British colony, but a spokesman for Rhodesia's minority white government said on Monday (23 May) that Mr Young should have checked his facts - and that Rhodesians shouldn't take his remarks too seriously. In the Rhodesian capital, Salisbury, a reporter asked Rhodesians what they thought.
