    Background: Prime Minister of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, Sir Roy Welensky, attended a special congress of the Nyasaland Division of the United Federal Party at Blantyre, Nyasaland, Nov 12. The U.F.P.'s fight against the Malawi Congress Party of Dr. Hastings Banda in the coming Nyasaland territorial elections was planned.

    Sir Roy - leader of the U.F.P. - arrived by air at Blantyre from Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia. There were no Africans at the airport to meet him ... only Europeans.

    Dr. Banda has already announced that he will fight every African seat, and that he has a number of candidates for the European seats. And in the hall where Sir Roy spoke, in the middle of the African township of Soche, some members of the Malawi Congress Party made a lot of noise.

    The elections will be held early 1961. it will be the first time the two giants of Federal policies, the U.F.P. and the African Nationalists, have lined up as the main opponents.
