    Background: THE BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY, MR. MICHAEL STEWART, LEFT BRITAIN TONIGHT (THURSDAY) FOR THE UNITED NATIONS' SECURITY COUNCIL EMERGENCY MEETING ON RHODESIA. HIS DEPARTURE CAME AS THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY'S TRUSTEESHIP COMMITTEE APPROVED AN EMERGENCY RECOMMENDATION THAT THE UN FORMALLY CONDEMN RHODESIA'S INDEPENDENCE DECLARATION.

    IN LONDON THERE WAS QUICK REACTION TO THE NEWS. LUNCHTIME CROWD GATHERED OUTSIDE RHODESIA HOUSE WHILE A TRANSMISSION WAS SHOWN ON A TELEVISION SCREEN OF MR SMITH'S ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DECLARATION.

    PRACTICAL JOKERS CAUSED A STIR THERE - WITH A HOAX FIRE ALARM. FIRE ENGINES AND AN AMBULANCE RUSHED TO RHODESIA HOUSE IN ANSWER TO THE BOGUS CALL. LATER THERE WAS MORE STIR, WITH A DEMONSTRATION PROTESTING AGAINST THE RHODESIAN ACTION.

    THERE WERE CROWDS TOO OUTSIDE NUMBER TEN, DOWNING STREET, THE OFFICIAL RESIDENCE OF THE PRIME MINISTER. THERE, MR WILSON WAS DISCUSSING THE CRISIS WITH HIS MINISTERS AND PREPARING HIS TELEVISION SPEECH TO THE NATION.

    THE RHODESIAN HIGH COMMISSIONER IN LONDON, WHO ARRIVED TO TAKE UP HIS POST IN JULY THIS YEAR, IS BRIGADIER ANDREW SKEEN. HE HAS BEEN ASKED TO LEAVE LONDON BY NOON ON SATURDAY. HIS OPPOSITE NUMBER, MR. JOHN JOHNSTON WILL BE LEAVING SALISBURY TOMORROW.
